Busy Busy Busy

I have not made it out in the yard working yet but I have been busy scrapping up a storm!  Lots of pages have been completed lately, as well as the beginnings of several projects.   I have made several quick pages for albums for both Rina and Kimmi.  The upcoming albums from the CT are to die for so you will want to keep your eyes on the look out for their releases.

I have 61 pages completed for Marie's Beloved (by Rina Kroes) wedding album.  With over 500 photos of that wedding, I hope to get 100 pages done for her.  I have 25 pages done for the Grandchildren's Photo Book using new releases by Kimberly Stewart; I want to have 30.  There are 17 pages completed in my Granddaughter Erynn's album using Rina's Bells of St Clements; the goal for that one is 25 to 30 pages.  Plus I have 8 or 9 more Photo Books using various products in the making, not to mention the various brag books I am working on.  I hope to be able to have everything finished and printed by November of this year so there will be no last minute scrambling for Christmas by me, lol.

I was reading over some of the comments on my blog and in my galleries, and I really want to thank every one who takes the time to post!  They really do brighten my day!  Carole N left a really nice message on my posting about Artscow Photo Books.  Thank you Carole.  Since March 10th of last year, I have had nearly 20,500 visitors to my blog!  Now I know that number is minute to many of the talented digi-scrap artists in the blogging community but that number brings a smile to my face so I sincerely thank all who stop by Notes In The Holler!

I have been addicted to this hobby since I received my first computer back in 2003, and I still use the same old program that I began with, The Rosco Media Creator, Photo Suite 7.  I have been fortunate enough to have several other top-programs bestowed to me as gifts but I just can not find the time to learn how to use them.  Maybe some day I will get caught up on all my projects and then I can venture into the brave net world of PSE, but for now, I just continue on as I always have.  I am so thankful that many designers now include shadowed elements for that is one area that my program sorely lacks in!!!

One of the Easter pages I posted last week using Kimberly Stewart's Ted E Rabbits QuickPages was chosen for this week's Made Ya Look Monday at Faith Sisters, and Sister Muse Sandy aka snojewel has one featured there as well!  Then today, I discovered one of the pages I posted yesterday was chosen as Layout of The Week at MyPicTales blog.  I get so thrilled when one of my pages gets a little special recognition like that, so thank you to those who picked me!  Of course, I have to show off a little bit myself, after all, I am a proud Granny so please indulge me as I show you a couple of  the layouts I posted in the galleries yesterday.

Since I seldom get to see most of my dear grandchildren, I often thank the Good Lord above for the special moments I share with these two.  And when I chose these pictures, I did not realize it, but they were taken exactly one year apart...I thought that was a neat coinky-dink!

I used the beautiful Tenderly Page Kit by Rina Kroes for these pages as well as the Tenderly Newsletter Gift from the March Scrapbook-Elements Newsletter.  Each month the SBE designers fill the newsletters with some amazing gifts.  If you have not signed up to receive the newsletter, I urge you to DO SO HERE
