What I've been doing!

I got up the single use license at both ACOT and OSCRAPS, so that's finished! I've also been subbing at my little man's preschool. I think they just need to hire me full time! LOL!
We got our orders yesterday so I've been house hunting. We have the Marine Corps Ball in Nov. so we'll be looking at some houses before heading to the hotel.
Other than that, I pretty much have everything done for Dream Street for my winter release. I'm just waiting to hear back on the changes!
I hope all is well with everyone!

Those looking for commercial use kits

I've had some emails about this so thought I would also put my answer's here. I do not allow commercial use of my products or freebies at this time. I will be offering commercial use with special terms for 5.00 per kit, freebies included. I did offer this use at Scrapix, so those that did purchase for the year you're still good to go. Hopefully I can get the graphic done and in the stores very soon. This commercial use does NOT include making websites, blog banners or ETSY banners for sale. If you have any questions just email me :D So if you create cards, scrap for others, or do some sort of crafting I'm here to help ya!

One of this weeks challenges for the 2CC contest I'm in, is to use the letter "B" as a monogram...so this is what I came up with :D TFL!
I'm thinking I should have did the B in a green and not white to make it stand out more.

Dream Street- Jack and alpha, Pageframes clear star, Autumn Leaves rubons, Autumn Leaves (Katie Pertiet) and Super-T's Stamps (You Say It- Baby), Brown Ribbon from the BROWN ribbon jar at 2CC, "B" Delish designs :D

Rock ON!!

I've been looking for a ball dress for a couple days. I went to Dillards on Monday and tried on about 6 and NOTHING looked right! A couple girls from an Yahoo group that I belong too for recruiters wives got their dresses at JCPennys, so I decided to go and look today. Well, they're having their buy one, get the second for .88 sale. Along with their final clearance of 1.97-3.97. Needless to say I saved 149.00 and spent 55!
This is the dress I got for the ball. It'll be fun to dress it up with some jewelry! I also picked up another black dress that I can wear to the CHA shows for 1.97, a new born Carters onesie for my friend for 1.97, and dh a shirt for 3.97! I love me some sales!!
