Hi Blog!!  EEEK!!!  I'm so sad to tell you that about 2 weeks ago my computer quit--just up and wouldn't boot up!  After jumping through some hoops, we were given permission to send it in for warranty work!!  Thankfully we bought it from Costco, so had an extra year warranty on it!!  I admit, I do use it a lot, but you'd think it would last more than a year and a half!  Anyhow, got word from the service area that the problem is the hard drive fried. 

I lost a lot of layouts (about 70) and about that many kits, but thankfully, no photos!  I've been able to download a lot of the kits thanks to some awesome sites that took pity on me and reset my links due to my sad story!!  It's always been my practice to move things off the computer every month, so that saved my photos!!  My practice will be to move things off weekly now instead of monthly.  The good news--we received the shipping information yesterday that said it should be returned today.  I'll be happy to get it back, as I've been using my old laptop that is really hard to use due to lack of RAM!

I also have a double EEK!!  I've been chosen to join the CT of Caroline S!  Her things are so much fun!  I think I'm going to love it.  Also, I'm guesting in September and October with Studio Basic--another fun team!  It is going to take me a week or so to catch up with my teams due to the lack of a computer, but I plan to really enjoy my stay with Studio Basic! 

I have a couple of layouts to share with you!!
I love this new kit from Caroline S, guest designer at the Digi Chick for September!! The kits name is No Ordinary Family found here: It was so much fun to play with!!  My layout is also titled No Ordinary Family.  It's my youngest daughter and her sweet family.  The boys are so special!!
and here is the cute kit!!  Can't you just see your own layout with this great kit??
Another layout I wanted to share is this one!
