Design Team Call and Creative Memories digital content sale

Good morning and Happy Wednesday!  Later today I will have the names of the three people who will be receiving the boxes.  The deadline for comments was midnight Pacific time on Tuesday.  I am three hours ahead on the East Coast so that was 3:00 a.m. for me.   I had to get some sleep so I could drive to the airport this morning.  

I really enjoyed all of the interaction here and on the Facebook page and I have read every single comment that has come through.  I have had family here visiting (sorry to see them leaving already) and I need a bit of time to regroup and catch up on other projects.  In the next few days I will try to put together a summary and explain how I would like to keep the discussions going.  I am so happy to share these boxes and only wish I had enough to send one to everyone.  Keep your fingers crossed and think good "random" thoughts!

The image at the top of this post is something I created starting from this photo that I took at an indoor flower show.  Just a bit of digital doodling!  I enjoy altering my photos and making new designs with them.  I use the Creative Memories StoryBook Creator Plus 3.0 software to do this.

SALE  - With my attention focused on the Blog Celebration for the past week, I nearly missed this sale.  If you use StoryBook Creator Plus 3.0 there is a sale on some digital content ending today (April 13th).  It is called the Mother's Day Digital Artwork Sale, however, there are a lot of items that are not specific to Mother's Day. You can find the digital items that are on sale HERE.

Dollar Days

Dollar Days are also still in effect at Lettering Delights and they keep adding more content to the site.  You can click the image above or the affiliate link in the left side column to go to the Lettering Delights site and shop for some great images, digital papers and fonts.

Many of you have commented to say how much you like the Creative Charms embellishments that I use and write about.  Here is some exciting news - you can apply to join the Design Team for Creative Charms.  Here is all of the information...

  7. The flower photos are absolutely gorgeous. (The top one sure makes a pretty snowflake design.)

  8. i'm glad you posted 'lilies'. i was watching a video on how to make these using punches. i decided to make my own using 'mothers day bouquet' cartridge and don juan. i'll be cutting them out today, and i'll use the colors of 'YOUR' lily because i think it's so pretty.
    see how you inspire me?
