Happy 4th of July!

Well it has been a while.  What can I say a lot was going on with family and work that when SDD closed I took a bit of a break from the digital community which also meant I took a break from my blog.  Hopefully, you will be seeing a lot more of me as time goes on :)

I hope that everyone had a wonderful day!  I worked but I cannot really complain as it is time and a half.  And then got to enjoy the evening with my 3 year old.  We attempted to take him to the fireworks but were going to try to find a place to just park and watch them.  Well it was a good 15 minutes after they were supposed to start and still no fireworks that we thought the place we had picked just wasn't going to work.  Tried driving around to see them and found a place with a bunch of other people but shortly after camping out there we started seeing cars leaving.  Thinking we had failed and missed them we started heading home.  We of course we spotting the stray one or two on our way but a mile from our house started seeing more and more so we pulled off to a parking lot to try to catch some.  We ended up being right in the middle of about 3 large sets of fireworks that were being set off, still not 100% sure where they were coming from, however, one in the far distance we are pretty sure was the original show we went to that just started really late.  After a good 15-20 minutes of fireworks we started to head home.  My son was excited to see a neighbor setting off fireworks and so we remained outside to watch.  She even treated him with some sparklers that he snatched up as if it was no big thing, did I mention my son has no fear these days.  While he was finishing his second sparkler she set off a few more larger fireworks and my son starts to head towards her house stating he wants to do that next!  No fear I tell you!  Boy, do I have my hands full in the years to come!

So on to the subject of scrapbooking I am so excited to be getting to work with Tiffany of Inspired by Dominic!  Anyone who has seen my work knows that her designs are a favorite of mine as they so often work perfectly for the photos of my little guy!  And now with working with her again I am so excited to get to play with some of her product again that I know you will be seeing even more of her designs in my work!

I am also super excited for her as she just opened a new CU store last month!  And that means huge savings for you!  All of her CU stores are still on sale for 35% off through the 7th!  Time to go do some shopping!

Don't Worry I Didn't Forget Wordart Wednesday

Well I haven't had the time (or maybe it is the inspiration) to get another template freebie together yet.  However, I did have some fun creating another wordart.  I was at first going to do some fall wordarts this month but seeing as how it is still 90 degrees here I just couldn't get in the mood.  So instead I decided to have some fun and do some wordarts this month that are dedicated to my soon.  So today I am sharing with all of you his love for trains.  And since I didn't have a template this week (and because I had so much fun creating the wordart) I created a frame as well!  I hope that you enjoy!

A New Grab Bag

Well by now you know how much I love grab bags!  Let me just say, the Mega Grab Bag at Scrappity-Doo-Dah this month is fabulous!!  You are not going to want to miss this one.  It features 8 products and you can snag it for only $2.99!!  What a deal!

Back to School Layout Time

Well I am sure many of you are begining to work on your back to school layouts.  My little guy isn't ready for actual school yet but does go to an early education center while I am at work and so I do still have "school" layouts to scrap.  I was so excited to get to play with Simple Girl Scraps' latest mini kit, Schooled!  It is perfect for all of your school layouts!!  I love the fresh colors and fun elements!  Check It Out!
