The end of June!

WOW! I can't believe that it is the end of June already! My birthday is in TWO days! I'm not sure that I want to be considered another year older..47 is not old but somedays I feel like I am 47 and old! LOL!
Today would be one of those days...

Yesterday morning, while cleaning out the cat liter box (yea...its nasty but somebody has to do it!) I moved the wrong way when I was getting up and did something to my back. I went to work and did my best to keep my mind on what I was suppose to be doing, not an easy task. This morning, I couldn't get up! I just could not get out of the bed! Thank goodness my DH was at home! I am feeling much better and my back is not hurting nearly as bad but it's time to go to bed again! Scarry thought!

I had a great day here at the house...Not often that I get to stay at home ( I am not the 'call in sick' type of person) on Friday and have a super long weekend! But I am on vacation for Monday and we are closed for the 4th. Anyway, I did quite a bit of work on the computer. I made a new digital scrapbook kit. Something I have been only dreaming about and finally decided that I needed to get that Dream into motion. I say new but it is actually the third one that I have made. I just did not go public with the first one and the second one I posted as a layout for the Inspiration Class that I was taking. new kit will now be part of the June Mega kit at "Digi scrap Central". (Though I did give it to a few of my bestest friends tonight in the DSP chat room.) I am very excited about this! I can't believe that they are going to put it in the mega kit! AWESOME!!!

Designing? Like I said...something I have only dreamed of doing. Its possible! I mean anything is possible! I don't know that I could ever make some of the things that I have seen out there. Several designers come to mind...Lauren, Meryl, Theresa, Irene and Sandy ( did I mention that I am on their creative team?). But I guess everyone has their own specialty, I just need to find mine! I have thought about doing word art, but I could never be as good as Tina! She is Awesome!Ah, well, I'll find it...somewhere! I do have to thank Meg for the inspiration though. I would have never made a kit if I hadn't taken her class. Well, I guess I would have gotten around to it eventually but just not as soon as I have.
Meg is awesome! I admire her allot! Her class was really great and I truely hate that its over.

I am starting a new class on the 7th. Filters and Plugins over at Scrapgirls. I am looking forward to taking the class but I don't know those folks over there as well as I know the gals at DSP. Geeze...I hope I fit in! Tkaing classes was one of my goals when I started digital scrapbooking. I promised myself that I was going to learn my program and that I would take 1 class every month to do that. So far I have...which remind me...I told Meg I had taken 4 classes but I have taken 5. All of them at DSU. This one that I start on the 7th will be my first away from HOME! I know that sounds crazy, but I really do think of DSP as my home. DSP is where I learned to Digital Scrapbook! As a matter of fact, DSP is the reason that I purchased my PSE program! Anyway, I am not moving away, I actually have signed up to be a mentor at DSP. That starts tomorrow and I am sitting here wondering if I know my program well enough to be a mentor! I think so...I HOPE so!

Oh..yes.. The creative team! I am on the creative team of Sandy Drieschner and Irene O'Niell. This has been since the first of June. When I tried out for DET at DSP and did not make it, I decided to try ut for a Creative Team at 3Scrapateers. Made it! Sandy and Irene are great and the both have some awesome kits. I post layouts for them at pixel-expressions, 3S and at DSP. Irene just made a new kit last week and I really need to get busy making her second layout. Guess I will start on that tomorrow after I get my nails done....for my birthday ..... on Sunday!

Well, I did not expect to write a novel when I came to the blog, but that is what it has turned out to be!

Everyone out there in digi land have a safe and wonderful 4th of July.
Don't drink and Drive and be safe with the fire crackers!

Until next time.....
