the one with LOTS of updates.

When did we get through half of this year?! It’s already June, but I can’t seem to believe it.

…and because it’s the beginning of the month, that means it’s time for a fun sketch brought to you by fellow Imaginisce DT member, Kim.

This one works well with scraps, and that to me, is always a good thing. The more scraps I use up… the better! For this sketch, I used the super cute Splash Dance by Imaginisce.

Don’t you love all the bling?! Thanks to the i-rock, I was able to add those fun touches of color to my page.

Don’t forget that you are going to want to visit the Imaginisce blog for a chance to win some great prizes! Also, feel free to use this month’s sketch, and you will be entered to win some awesome goodies. You never know if you don’t try, right?! …so hurry, and start your layout! 😉

Also, there’s EXCITING, EXCITING, EXCITING news over at My Favorite Things! Make sure to check out Julie‘s announcement over here. You don’t wait to miss what the FAVE girls have been up to! It’s going to knock your “shoes” off if you know what I mean. 😉

Today is also the big reveal for My Paper Tree House! Nana, another Kiki Art DT gal, graciously invited me to be a part of her kit club. We have been busy cranking out project after project, and we are all so excited to be able to share all of them with you today. Unfortunately, you will all have to wait until later this afternoon to see my reveal. I’ll post an update on the MPTH blog and back here after lunch. Stay tuned. 😉


He is now home with us.

Today, even though still not feeling well, he’s doing much better than yesterday. He still has major IBS (aka. diarrhea), and I think that’s taking a lot of energy out of him. We took his temperature today, and it’s finally normal. Phew! My only concern is that he doesn’t get dehydrated. Other than that, I think he’s on the way to brighter and better days.

Again, thanks for all of your positive vibes. 🙂

    Hola Sarah, yo no he podido escribir antes, yo también tengo un perrito y me duele lo que le pasa al tuyo.
    Me encanta cómo quedo tu página, tanto colorida es como si le pasara esa energía a tu mascota.
    Espero que se mejore! Muchos cariños,
