Sale and a New Kit

Everything in my store at DigiDesignResort is on sale for 35% off till the end of December. Don't miss your chance to pick up some of my goodies!

December brought a lot of cold and snow on several days.  Then last weekend our area had the third largest snowfall in one day in our recorded weather history!  We ended with 21 inches on the ground but the wind had drifted it higher in some places.  So I am really done with winter -- and it's only just begun!

So while thinking of warmer weather and spring, (mind you it's before Christmas), I was working on this kit, and here it is -- Frivolity!  Wonderful warm and cheerful colors perfect for kids pages of all sorts, spring, summer (or wishing for it) pages.

Hacking Websites

Get ready for a rant!

DigidesignResort was hacked, and other stores experienced the same thing over the summer. I got word this morning that our programmer will have to stop working on ours (we're mostly back) to help fix new stores that were hacked!

I just do not understand the mentality of those who deliberately set out to destroy other people's hard work.  Why can't they use that expertise and creativity in positive, productive, income-earning ways, instead of battering down those who are working hard to create jobs for others?!?  I so wish there were a way to catch and punish them!

Announcement about DigiDesignResort

It's been awhile since I've posted, life has a way of taking interesting directions and off you go. I had a busy end of summer and the start of fall hasn't been any different. Started a new set of challenges for the month of October.  Spent a week of vacation with the whole family in the hills overlooking the Shenandoah Valley in Virginia.  Home again, caught up with work, made two scrapbooking kits, accepted at a store which opens this week.

Did you catch that?  Yes, I'm now on the designer team at DigiDesignResort!!  And here is your sneak peek at the kits coming to the store --

and the second one --

There's also a set of two quickpages available for the first one, and a matching solid paper pack and set of clusters and frames for the second kit are coming.

So stay tuned for the reveal in a couple of days!

Update, and new Challenge Host

Haven't written much lately except for instructions for the new September challenges for DigidesignResort. I'm now in charge of all the challenges there. And we have a new system! Well, an old system plus the new one.

If you do all six of the original challenges, you receive a code for the enormous monthly collab kit made by our designers. For September, it's called Indian Summer, and has the most delicious shades of browns, yellows, oranges and greens.

And now we have six new mixed challenges. The list will be a little bit different each month. But here's the new reward system -- if you complete all six of the mixed challenges, you earn a discount coupon worth 30% off your purchase anywhere in the store! If you use DDR products, from any designer, in your six layouts, you earn an extra 5% discount! You can even use it on sale items! So, hurry over and check it out! (fine print --only on PU items, use only once, and expires at the end of the following month).

Update, and First Kit in the Store

Oh, my goodness! The last month has been really busy! Spent some time traveling to California for a conference and then 4 days visiting my brother and his family. Had a great time.

Problem with being away from the office is that your desk gets buried. Sigh . . .

And, my first kit, a collab with Candid Moon Designs is in the store at DigiDesign Resort! It's called School Days, and is perfect for scrapping school pictures for every age! And something else you need to know -- the money earned with the kit goes to help one of the CT member's family whose daughter, Katlin, is fighting brain cancer. If you go to the store, there's a link to read about what's going on with her.
