blogthings... spring survey fun.. i am

You Are Baseball Games

You like old fashioned things. You're one of those people who values tradition.

You enjoy a slow pace of life. You believe that life is all about enjoying every moment.

You love the changing of the seasons, and you look forward to what each season brings.

You are smart and a bit obsessive. You become very immersed in your interests.

and this is kinda close!

what are you?

Pages from April...

ok, now that this is becoming a somewhat regular habit, hahaha, guess the thing to do would be to post some of the pages of April... so here are a few of them, and if you really want to see them bigger or the rest(?) you can head over to the galleries - they're linked on the right.

As both Julie and Misty sell at Sweet Shoppe Designs, I am most active in the forum there, so the gallery at Sweet Shoppe Designs has more pages for challenges, etc. The galleries at digishoptalk and myscrapbookart are more to showcase Julie, Misty and Tiffany's work to the digi community at large in the interest of getting the word out about their fabulous products. And they are -- go see! the shops are also linked to the right - in the creative teams section.

Happy iNSD!

Happy iNSD (inter-National Scrapbooking Day) and whoo boy! have the stores turned on the sales! lots of fun goodies out there...

Some of my had to haves were at After 5 Designs, the Farmers Market at Scrap Orchard (who can turn down a $1 sale? - though that scavenger hunt kicked my booty, Mel!), Shabby Pickle (again $1), and Studio WendyZine at ScrapbookGraphics because I Will Print Out Layouts This Year.

The presale at WST was the best! thank you Deann and Patrick! and the goody collab from the LilyPad were worth budgeting and waiting patiently for NSD for my backlogged stockpile wishlist of TLP wonderfulness. Joanna and Creashens Green kit at CatScrap - well it's definitely my splurge... but look, isn't it just gorgeous?
