I'm hours away from being 40!!!!!!!!!!!!

When did that happen?

sighhhhhhhhhhhhh. It is ok. I am okkkk! lol. No...really...I am. It doesn't bother me too much. I just realize I need to start taking better care of myself. But the age thing doesn't bother me.

so. we are finally feeling all healthy...shhhhh.

We are getting ready for bed....the boys and I have been playing like crazy today!

But I wanted to tell you about my new goodies. My sale. And a new freebie!

Since I am turning 40...spend $3 or more in my store and save day only.

and I have new goodies...

The boys and I made salt dough and I thought....hey....this would make some cool elements! (always the scrapper, no?)

So...I created. I baked. and I turned into fun elements!! The plain set is available in Commercial Use Version and Personal Use.

The decorated set 1 is just personal.

And I have a garden-y set almost all done. keep your eyes peeled.

here is a layout I did using them with Jacque's to park play set, also used Valorie's zippity do dah kit and her A good life Alpha and marcie's playing outside the lines (all at funky playground designs)


and I have my version of a new year's resolution. A new year for me. I HAVE got to get myself healthy. Mentally as well as physically. For me. For my boys. I will do it!

I used lots of FPD goodies....

from Laura Bratcher

background: experimental art pack
goodies from: fiddlededee kit
ribbon heart: stuck on you
alpha: colorfully dressed
strung elements: strung out

Valerie Brown

flair: a good life kit
border: doodle border set 1

and I made the layout into a template gift for you.
