new news and a freebie!

Hello everyone!

Can I just say that kids grow up too fast? My baby is 9 months old already *weep* He's pulling himself up on things and is gonna figure out walking very soon :( I want more time with my baby before he becomes a big boy! And my oldest step-son (who is 12) is losing more and more of his innocence- becoming a young man. I want my little ones back! I'm sure every mother (and most step-moms) can relate to this and have probably said it themselves.....

Well, on to scrapping news. Let's start with a new group I'm part of! Mega Doodle Inspired asked me to be on her product testing team! Our first assignment was a set of patterns and tutorials. They are awesome and, the best part, they DO work in my PS7!!! Check them out at her stores- I am linking you to the MSS store, but they are also at Scrappin Freestyle. She has them in PS, PSE and PSP versions and in overlays for those who don't use those programs! Right now they are 50% off!

Watch my blog for freebies using this product!!

On to Sunshine news!
First of all, Polka Dot Plum hosted a speed scrap last night and I completed it! Here is my LO using Sweet Afternoon, the September collab from SUN designers:

Yep, it's my baby boy. And, seriously, I've made so many LOs of him not doing anything that I've had to start naming them with his name and the kit name! That's how many photos I have! Poor kid!

Our next speed scrap will be next Wednesday (yep, I originally said Thursday) at 9pm EST hosted by Sweetie Leah!
