Life is good.....

So much to update! I am going to use this post to highlight a few of the things going on in my life right now that are keeping me busy!

I was thrilled to be asked to be the the Guest Designer for June at Citrus Tree Studio (http://www.citrustreestudio.com/) I was given the "Easy Rider" kit to work with - a palette of teal, red, white and black and including a lot of Glitz products! This kit totally called out to the collage maker in me!

I hope you will drop by Citrus Tree, a really cool group of chicks hang out there!

Here are my first creations with this fab kit:



I am happy to brag about my nephew, Trevor. At 18, he has recently graduated from the Northwest Lineman College in Meridian, Idaho and has accepted an apprenticeship position with a company just outside of Dallas, Texas. So tomorrow he is off to his new life with his girlfriend who will be attending dental school. We had a going away party yesterday for them both, gifting them with things they would need to set up their first home away from their parents. Here is a link to a video Trevor created highlighting his time at NLC:

THE GOOD LIFE......
Lastly, thanks to some really good friends, we were able to spend the first 3 days of this week at a condo in Palm Desert - the good life! I sunned by the pool each day, Danny golfed everyday. We had some FABULOUS meals, and I even sneaked out while Danny was napping one day to peruse thrift stores and came home with the incredible treasures pictured. The scary bunny pitcher was a mere $4.00 and the cake stand with dome only $15.00 (I can't wait to fill that dome with little white pumpkin gourds at Halloween!)




Thanks for stopping by, and stay tuned for a major slide show of pet themed layouts that I have recently completed for A True Friend!
