DSO is starting an EZINE (email magazine) and we're looking for layouts featuring DSO Product.

  • The Dec call will end Dec 20th,
  • we are looking for WINTER theme layouts or Hybrid projects. 
  • Email submissions to support@digital-scrapbooking.org with "DEC LAYOUT CALL - WINTER THEME" in the subject.
  • Layouts must include a complete supply list, and must contain primarily DSO product.
  • Deadline for Dec Winter submissions is DEC 20th, 2008.
  • Layouts chosen will be featured in the Jan edition,
  • Layouts chosen will be compensated with a $5 GC to the DSO store.



Well, I told you earlier about Allie Brown's Layouts ( I am using one of her layouts on this blog) she makes the cutest blog layouts!  Well, she used one of my kits, Almost All Red, to make some layouts and a header and you can get it free on her blog.  How awesome is that!!  Be sure to leave her some love!





I have a new kit called Almost Christmas on sale this week for only $3.50. 

I love those Christmas bulbs! (if I do say so myself, LOL)  You get one plain set and one frame set, all you do is put you photo behind it and  you have a personalized Christmas bulb.  They would be so cute on Christmas cards too. (Hmmm, I better get busy and send my Christmas cards)  Stop by DSO and check it out.


Have a great day!

Tribute to Gretzky

We lost our sweet boy Gretzky last week, he had thyroid cancer.  We know he is at peace now, no more coughing, no more pain, but that still does not ease the pain in our hearts.  He was more than a dog or pet, he has a member of our family for 13 years, since he was 6 weeks old. We miss him so much, he was such a big part of our lives.  He gave us such unconditional love and brought great joy to our lives.  He followed me everywhere, loved to give kisses and loved to tear up tissues.  He would turn over the trash can in the bathroom to get his treasured tissues.  When I bought a can with a lid, it didn't phase him because he learned to pull the toilet paper off the roll.  He would grab it and run to his bed, there he'd be chewing and tearing up the paper until something else caught his attention. 

We love you and miss you!  We will see you again by the Rainbow Bridge!

Happy Thanksgiving and Crazy Shoppers!

I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving with their family and friends and eats lots of turkey and pumpkin pie!  We have so much to be thankful for, but we are most thankful for the love of our family and friends!

What else besides Scraps will you be buying  (or trying to buy) on Black Friday?  Me, I'd like a new digital camera and a 32 inch LCD TV, but I am not getting up and going shopping at 4am!  It's just not worth it. 

Do you know there were actually people in line last night at Best Buy!  How crazy is that, they are going to miss Thanksgiving with family and friends to get a "deal" on something.  They said they hoped their family and friends brought them dinner. It's not about the food, it's about the time we spend with people we love!  There is no bargain out there that's worth giving that up!

Thank you for all the great comments on my All Boy Mini, I hope you enjoy it!  I get a big smile just knowing that someone comes here and actually reads this! 

There are a few more days left to do some challenges at DSO, there are some great posting bonuses so be sure to check them out! 

And tomorrow, don't forget about my Black Friday Sale!! You save 50% off everything over 99 cents.  Lots of other DSO designers are having sales to so be sure to check out the whole store!

Happy Birthday & Easy Print Photo Cards

First off, I want to wish Phil a very Happy Birthday, I hope you enjoy your special day sweetie!  Thank you for making me the luckiest girl in the world!

Yeah!!! They won the Super Bowl!!

My grandson Clayton's football team (he's there on the right)  just won their Super Bowl! 

He sure loves football and he is good (if I do say so myself) but that's because he loves it!  It's so nice when a child finds a sport they love.  I think playing sports so good for kids and helps keeps them out of trouble! 

His team was undefeated and this game was a nail biter!  They won 8-O and Clayton scored the 8 points!  Here are some photos taken by sports photographer W. Litmer.   It is so nice of him to provide links for us to post photos to our web sites.






These photos were taken by Bryan.
