Did you notice?

How could you not right?

I got a new blog make-over!! I’m talking a total over-haul. I love it and am just over the moon excited!

Sara Williams  from Tweaks and Designs did the make over for me, and tailored it to my exact wants/needs!! I cannot thank her enough for her talent and hard work. She was an absolute JOY to work with (no she didn’t pay me to say any of this! I paid her! LOL!) and made sure I was 100% happy with every detail.

She got my vision. I contacted her and said Listen I want a clock and butterflies, and I have to have the colors celery, pink and purple in there with some flowers. . Now I have a site that I think reflects me and my style/personality better. I just want to sit and stare at it.

NOTICE-in my banner-see the little clock? “MY TIME”! I love it. My ime is a huge thing for me, and important for my sanity. I was excited it was incorporated into my look.

This has all my favorite colors, and has a clean and whimsical style that I just love to pieces.

Thanks for letting me gush. This was a long time coming, and Ms. Williams is quite popular so she was in demand!! Well worth the wait.

Through this process I feel like I also made another cyber friend. She is like my cyber twin only her obsession is this whole graphics world (no idea what its called).

I wish I had her make me some more watermarks! LOL!! She designed all our MFT ones.

Well thanks for letting me gush! Im just so happy.

Also my super cyber friend Dawn made my day by sending me PHOTOS and instructions on how to make better sketches using my Photoshop!! Must have taken her forever to do that for me and I just appreciate that so much. She knows how challenged I am and took the time to help me. The directions were so easy, it took just a few minutes, my first time!!  They are like a total professional sketch!! Thank you Dawn! I love ya!!

OK finishing up my samples for the MFT party-so better run.

Sara Im sending you HUGE cyber smooches, and you better stay in touch!

Back to School

Aug 6, 2008 Author: mytime | Filed under: Cards

Guess what! The Release for Pink Cat Studio is today! So hop on over to pick up your new sets!



Can you seriously even believe how many images are in these set, and the possibilities? The design team had just touched the tip of the ice berg of possibilities. Seriously.

Now for another card to share

lily-goes-to-school-full.jpg Back to School

How sweet is she? I totally love her, and her back to school look.

I once again used Bethany’s idea and colored her in a partial scene. I made that sidewalk using my marker & a ruler. I was impressed! LOL! I don’t have a artsy bone in my body, so being able to actually draw in a SIMPLE sidewalk was a big deal for me, I swear.

The lunch box is 3D, and I made the little flower on it to match her dress.

THEN I took some $1 clips I got last year at Target $1 spot, and took the original image out, and using my EK success flower punch and some PP I made my own little clippie to match! That was fun.


Here is the close up of my art! LOL!

I also love that I did the apple green rather than red. It’s a simple touch but I almost forgot apples ARE green too! LOL! That helped keep it all matchy matchy.

The sentiment is from MFT Back to school set, and the lined paper bkgd is CHF ( I so love that bkgd!).

Can you believe its “Back to School” shopping time already? That is what I started yesterday. I spent a pretty penny and felt like I walked away with not so much.

Noah got 5 pairs of jeans and 8 shirts, back pack, lunch bag, socks, and a zip up heavy sweatshirt for those “start cold, but end up hot days”. Target had a super sale on boys jeans!! Noah is in a size 7 (yes and he is only 5 1/2) and I got them for $3.74!! Not the cheapie jeans with no pockets, the heavier style Wrangler and a few other brands. I try not to buy him expensive jeans because he just tears through them, and grows so fast!

I have much more to do before the kids go back to school. Alexa’s last day of summer school is tomorrow. It will be nice to have a few days of no rushing out of bed and getting someone ready and out the door before my coffee even kicks in.

I think we need to hit the Tilton Outlets this weekend. I LOVE shopping at Carters for Amber, and anywhere I can get the girls matching outfits. Annoying, I know. But I think its just so cute. Alexa is small for her age, and Amber is bigger so it usually works out.

OK I have to run. I stayed up till 2:30 am last night! Something I NEVER do, but was inspired so said WHY NOT? Now I remember WHY I stopped doing that. I’m not 21 anymore. I can’t stay up till 2am and get up and run around with 3 kids. What was I thinking?

Well it paid off in the respect that my mojo was so happy and I whipped out like 7 big projects! GO LAUREN! LOL!

More on that later.
