Dog Days of Summer

Hello All!
It's been way too hot in North Carolina to do much of anything for the entire month of July! Temperatures have been over 100 degrees most days and the heat indexs have been unbelievable for July; August is usually the hottest month in the Southern United States. I am just wondering what August will bring this year . . . I don't know how long my air conditioner can run without overload and breakdown.
Ms. Echo, owner of Southern Comfort Scraps, has put the August Store Collab, Summer Sun, up a wee bit early this month.  It is full of fun summer elements to answer any need you might have to scrap those vacation and hot summer days of the Northern Hemisphere and last summer's photo for you of the Southern hemisphere! It is a very large kit so make room on your XHD for these goodies which are free with just a $10 purchase from the store or $5.99 outright. Check out the preview:

I am currently working on a special kit called 'Good Morning, Sunshine!' which contains some unique furnishing items to scrap your child's morning. Everything is offered in masculine and feminine versions! i will post a sneak peak soon along with a Freebie to whet your whistle.

Y'all stay cool now!

Too Hot Tuesday!

Hey Y'All,

Too hot is right!  It is 98.2 degrees in the shade here today and it truly is not helping with my sinus problems. If it's not mold from too much rain it's dust/pollen from too much heat.  At least my eyes have begun to feel better from the pressure the sinuses were causing.  I can read now, Yay!  I was suppose to go and visit a friend of mine today that I haven't seen in a few weeks (she's been at the beach and I've been sick) but it is just too hot to go out.  I have really missed her though because when she's at the beach she gets lousy cell phone reception so we lose touch.  I'm going to stay in today, do my grocery shopping tonight when it's cooler, and visit Jan on Thursday when the weatherman says it will be 'cooler.'

Kim and Joshua were down yesterday and we sat in the dining room working on our latest puzzle.  Joshua is such a sweetheart and I enjoy him so much.  They left this morning for Virginia where they will pick up Tabitha and head to Washington, D.C. tomorrow.  Joshua has been wanting to go to the Smithsonian for a while now and Kim says she is up to it, so off they go.  Kim has a Mini-Cooper so the gas prices don't really keep them at home like having a gas guzzler like mine does.

Have you gone by the store, Southern Comfort Scraps, and checked out that July collaboration I was telling you about?  You don't want to miss it because after this month each of the designers will take their contribution and put it in their respective shops at a price of around $4 each!  You can get it All for Free with a $6 purchase now or just buy it outright for $6 and you are still getting a major bargain!

Next month is 'Summer Sun' and I thought I'd give you a sneak peak at what I will be adding and a small freebie of stickers that will match the August theme.  The stickers are on one .png file so you need to lasso or select and paste into your new document.

Oh, one more thing before I go!  Southern Comfort Scraps needs some store Creative Team members.  Nothing much is required, I think maybe two layouts a month and you get to choose the kit you want to use from some of the designers and you keep it for yourself.  Not bad for a couple hours work; let me know if you are interested by leaving a comment.  I'd like to have another CT member for myself if you are interested; you'll have access to anything in my store and only one layout a month is required.  Also the store and I are very understanding, if life gets in the way, you just have to let us know ASAP and we will get someone else to take your turn.

Y'All Stay Cool!

Freebie Quick Page!

Hey Y'all!
I forgot to tell you that I made a quick page freebie using my True Blue Add-On kit and my part of the July 2011 Collaboration freebie. Please enjoy (PU/S4H/S4O-Only)! Come and check out my other products at the Shop.  Southern Comfort Scraps


My Cutie Pie Has Left The Premises!

Hey Y'all!

Well my Tabitha went home on Friday evening and it has taken me these last three days to come to terms with it.  She says she wants to come back and visit during her Christmas break but I kind of doubt she will be allowed to.  This past week, that she spent with me, was wonderful!  We laughed, talked, hugged and just enjoyed each other so much; it was the first time I have seen her in five years (she was 12 at the time).  She is a happy and loving teenager and a joy to be around.  She brought some of her graphic artwork for me to see and I am really impressed with her quick conquering of PhotoShop.

Isn't she a cutie!? She's just as beautiful on the inside too!

Here is some of her artwork:
My Tabitha

The street is a creek!
I have been trying to get over impacted sinuses and now a painful and swollen eye.  My daughter says they are probably connected.  I have been using Dr. Oz's remedy of salt water nose washes and I almost drowned myself this morning! I know too much information!  I'm a sad looking momma though and if I wasn't so vain I'd post a photo of my distorted pitiful face!

I've finished another kit; it is an add-on to the True Blue Free Collaboration that's available this month at Southern Comfort Scraps.  I previously said it was with a $5 purchase but it's with a $6 purchase because it is so Huge!  This add-on includes some great fireworks (if I do say so myself); they look great on dark backgrounds.

I certainly hope you all are enjoying your long 4th of July weekend in the States and are having a better Monday than I am throughout the world!
