There is a new brag book quick page exchange going on at GDS and it features my new "Bliss" kit. What is a brag book exchange? Well, you purchase the kit (currently on sale 20% off) and then you create up to 3 quick pages in PNG format and send them in to GDS. At the end of the exchange, every one who submitted quick pages gets a copy of all the quick pages submitted by everyone! In the last quick page exchange, participants ended up with over 60 brag book quick pages!!!! You end up with an entire album that matches! Here is a preview of my new kit:

You can buy it here 20% off!

So, what makes my day?
I have a free template for you! It was innspired by my 10 year old son! He was doing his homework and I noticed that he was wearing his Darth Vader helmet! Priceless memories! Here is a layout I made with the free template for today:

It has a gradient overlay! I used the multiply layer blending mode in my layout!

Thank you Andrea. This looks interesting. I'll have to experiment with it. I'm not experienced with gradients (or with my PS in general) so it's fun to try new stuff.

My Little Ironies

  • I just had to tell my daughter that there was little probability that she could do eighty chores in two hours and 10 minutes to earn a giant lot of pet shops on Ebay that she wants to earn before the auction closes. That's at two chores per dollar. :)

  • I fixed my daughter's glasses with JB Weld!
  • I have a pile of sand on my leather couch.
  • My daughter lost her glasses in the snow on the way home from school in January. Someone found them in March and turned them into the school office! Amazingly enough, the school remembered we lost them in January. Wow!
  • Just when I think he knows better, my 10 year old son plugs the bathroom sink and the emergency drain in the sink basin to soak his grow creature, turns on the water, and forgets about it until we notice water flooding out from under the bathroom door! And yes, he locked the door so no one would bother the grow creature!!
  • It's time for another worn out pair of the hubby's pants to disappear! Aren't kids suppose to be the only ones who are attached to clothing?
  • My 4 year old says she needs "peace and quite"!!!!!
  • My Husband says there's a perfectly good reason for the leatherman being in my dish drainer.
  • I have a leatherman (fancy pocket knife) in my dish drainer. I don't know why.

  • My daughter's medical bills added up to about $18,000, but we got a free sippy cup and a ball signed by the Utah JAZZ Dancers!
  • I put safety locks on the tops of my outside doors to keep my three year old from escaping and she figured out how to open them with a broom in approximately five minutes.
