Birthday celebration at Designer Digitals

We are going to be 5 years old on April 1st. It feels funny saying "we", but I am part of it now :) sometimes I still have to pinch myself, it's hard to believe I am part of this cool place :) anyway, there are some special things on sale and of course sales going on, so go and check it out. We just put all the new stuff in the store and here Katie is designing more already. She did this cute template and I just had to use it today

I didn't change much about the format, just added another paper layer. This is TG last year, when we first got her, she was so cute!!! She still is actually, the nicest cat ever and so soft. We all love putting her close to our face, she is softer than a fur coat!

this is the monthly calendar page I make to be inserted in my 365 book after the end of the month. I like the look and sometimes I have photos I didn't pick for the 365 pages but I still like.

Yesterday Michael had this cute expression and I had to make a page about it

I hope you can read the journaling, the guys sticking up for each other, it's so cute and funny.

I had seen these labels in a Paperwishes catalogue and I just had to try and make the same thing digitally. I like how it came out, so springy and easterly (I think I just made up a new word).

Nothing like a little challenge to myself. It's just something different. Sometimes I look in the gallery and the pages all start to look alike and I get tired of the same old thing :)
We have this contest going on right now. People are supposed to make a birthday card to DD and the best one can win a 50$ GC for the store. Pretty cool huh? There are some awesome cards popping up already, really cool stuff!
Tonight I skipped choir practice. It just seems that every Sunday night, my dinner is really late. We didn't eat until almost 7 and that's when practice starts. It'll be okay though, I know all the songs and practice can be boring.... It's going to be a busy week with Holy Thursday, Good Friday, Easter Vigil and Sunday.... I think we are singing almost every day and then the Easter Bunny still has to come Saturday night.... like I said, it's going to be busy. It's always such fun on Easter morning though, the kids really enjoy the hunt for eggs! I have to make sure to put on my speedlight, so I can get some decent pictures, it's always so drab and dark around here. It's been raining and raining and cold..... hope for the end of the week though, it's supposed to get warmer and sunny!!!
Okay, I think we are going to say the rosary in a few minutes and then we are planning to watch New Moon, which we just bought. Gabby and I saw it already, we are trying to get Rachel to watch it, she really isn't interested though. That's okay, it would just be nice to see it all together. 
Rachel spent the day in Altoona yesterday, they had Diversity. She wasn't too thrilled about it, she thought it was quite boring. 
Okay, gotta go, see you soon!

Great layouts and happy anniversary to Designer Digitals! How awesome for you that you are part of it now!

I really like the one with Michael, I could read the journaling and got a good chuckle from it. Your kitty one makes me wish I could feel her super soft fur and that Easter one is terrific.

You always create such fabulous layouts! Wish I had that talent.

Good luck getting through what sounds like a super busy week!

Wow, Anke. What a busy week you have ahead!! But, I can say, enjoy it now. When the family moves out and it is just you and DH it is a really big change. Not a bad one, mind you, just a different one!! LOL

Your LO's are adorbale. I couldn't pick my favorite. Michael's is so cute and the kitty. Well, guess I can love them both!!

Have a blessed Holy Week!

Never say Never!

Well, here I am creating my very own blog! I was always very sure I would never get into this blogging "thing", but here I am. I hope you will enjoy finding out a little about my not so interesting life!
