I'm back and some layouts

I'm back from my "girls" trip, we had such a fun time!  Marianne is such a great hostess, I think I gained 10 lbs, we ate so much and it was all delicious!  We relaxed by the pond, played cards,  went to a couple garage sales ( I got a 2 brand new games, Monopoly and Yatzee for $3, what a bargain) then we went to the Farmers Market.  We also went to the pool, played more cards and laughed the whole weekend!  It is so enjoyable to be around my girlfriends, it's therapy for the soul. 

There's a few days left to do the DSO challenges.  This month I am hosting the Book of Me and the Recipe Challenge.  You don't want to miss out on the free Mega kit!  So get busy!

Here are a few layouts using my latest kits This N That and Firefly.
They are both so cute, thanks girls!!

Here's one Andrea made using my This N That kit.


And this one Livia made using my Firefly kit.

New Kit: This N That

I have a new kit in the store today, This N That.  It's a cute kit with a large view master frame.  Those view masters have been around for such a long time, and yes I had one as a kid. It also has a variety of other elements which makes this kit work for all your photos.  This N That is on sale this week for 25% off, it's only $3.00 so hurry to DSO and pick it up.  I'd love to see any layouts you make, you can just email them to me at lpand3dogs@gmail.com and I will post them here.

Anticipation....and Freebie for you

I am excited, next weekend is our "girls" trip. My girlfriends and I are going to visit our friend who lives 3 hours away. We always have such a good time. We have all been friends for about 47 years, man that makes me sound old, doesn't it! LOL We've known each other since we were babies, grew up on the same street and went to the same school. These are the sisters I never had. We have shared so much of our lives together. I love them more than they know. Any way it's sure to be a good time, good food, good friends and I'm sure we will manage to get some card playing in too!

Ok, I did say a freebie didn't I.....well Debbie Beckmoore, my guest CT made a wonderful brag book using my Emily kit, so you all get to reap the benefits! Be sure to stop by her blog and thank her. Check back often, I will be adding new brag book pages. Collect them all and you will have a cute little brag book.

Here's the first page of the brag book.

Sunday, a Dosie (dooo-zeee) and cards

Today is Sunday and do we have a DOSIE (dooo-zeee) for you! 
The DSO BLOG brings you the first OFFICIAL DSO Dosie (dooo-zeee) Challenge !

The Dosies are the new DSO blog challenge. Each week will be something new and fun, so we really hope you participate along with us! You can check all the info and see lots of examples on the site blog! ;)

Here is Week 1 - July 6, 2008:
There’s NO PLACE like HOME
The Internet is such a wonderful thing.  We sometimes forget how great a thing it really CAN be. One of the best examples of this, is the variety of people you can meet, friends you can make, literally from ALL OVER THE WORLD. So Bunny thought, why not a challenge to demonstrate that. Wouldn’t it be great to see just WHERE your Internet friends call home? Your challenge, should you decide to accept it, is to show us a layout of your home. Don’t be shy now, we really do want to see!

Here's the layout I did for the challenge:



Speaking of challenges, I entered the card swap on the DSO forum.  I love cards, I have made 1 or 2, but some of the ladies in the swap sent in pics of the cards they made.  Well, I think I am out of my league here.  They were amazing!  So, I thought I better do some research for some new ideas and techniques.  Today I found a great site, Bunny Zoe's Blog  she has made some wonderful cards. She reached 10000 hits so to celebrate she has some blog candy on her site.  Stop by and check it out.

The day after........Check out DSO

So, do you still have holiday plans for the day after the 4th?  I'm glad the 4th fell on a Friday this year, it makes for a LONG holiday!  I hate when it is in the middle of the week.  It was a rainy day yesterday and looks like it's gonna be that way today too.  So, we'll probably stay in today which means I get to play on the PC. 

Be sure and stop by DSO and check it out!  Our server problem is all gone now and it looks all shiny and new.  I know you will love it.  Be sure and re-register in the forum and gallery.  There are lots of great challenges this month and if you do them all you get the MEGA kit for free!  I'm hosting 2 challenges this month, the IRON CHEF Recipe Challenge and the Book of Me Challenge.  So get busy scrapping.

Happy 4th of July and DSO is back, YAY!

First off, Happy Fourth of July! You know summer is really here when it's the 4th of July!!!  I hope everyone has a great Independence Day!

Are you ready???? Did you have withdrawal??? I sure did, but DSO is finally back.  All of it, the store, the gallery and the forum.  And DSO has a different web host so we won't be getting any of those stupid error screens!

You will need to re-register in the forum and gallery because the old ones are gone forever.  Poor Bunny had to start from scratch and create completely new ones. She was able to save the store database, so you should be good to go there.  There's going to be lots of new exciting things going on...so stay tuned.

The June and July Challenges are posted, so if you participated in any June challenges, you need to post your layout in the new gallery in order to get your posting bonus. 

Here's the posting bonus for the July IRON CHEF Recipe Challenge.  The challenge has changed a little so be sure and read the rules.   Can you guess the SECRET INGREDIENT???  You don't have to cook or have recipes to do this challenge!!  Now go get busy and show me some layouts!!!


There is also a fabulous new Mega Kit, Traditional Independence and you can get if for free just by doing all of the July challenges.

Relax on this wonderful 4th of July holiday and take a few minutes to check out the new and improved DSO!
