This has not been the best week. My little one, Alexis, had a really tough school week and that translates to a tough one for Mom too. My goal was to get up 5 listing but it turned out to be a no go. I am actually happy that I was able to get the 4 up that I finished. :)
I would also like to welcome Trish - Little Scraps of Heaven - to our BTDL Design team. What a perfect fit she has turned out to be! You can view her work by searching BTDL on ebay. :)
Well here are my listings for this week.

So sorry for taking such a long break..... Our family has not gone on a vacation in quite a while. This summer we actually had a chance to take two of them back to back. It was so much fun, but as you can imagine coming back after such a long time off, there was so much to catch up on. The children were starting school the week after we returned and I had done nothing in preparation for the big day. Our first trip was to Amarillo Texas. Brian had to help out in the store so we all tagged along. The children were able to spend the entire time in the pool! They had a blast. Me, not so much but it was okay because I knew that my time was coming. Next we went to Las Vegas for my uh um, reunion. (Not giving the year out! :) ) It was so much fun! Our high school drill team also had a mini reunion planned for the same time. We had all recently reconnected after all these years on facebook and thought it would be the perfect time, and it was! It was AMAZING seeing these women after all these years. It seriously felt like yesterday that we were all parading around our high school campus. Why Vegas when our high school is in Hawaii? Our school was about 90% military so a location on the mainland is actually the perfect location and where better than Vegas!? That's me in the center of the gorgeous blonds. :)
It feels great to finally be caught up and blogging again. :) Here is a sneak peek into what I will be listing tonight on ebay. I know that we are way to early to be listing Fall layouts, BUT have you seen the newest stack from Debbie Mumm?! Oh My Goodness!!! I just couldn't wait to use these papers. I did limit myself to just one Fall layout. Don't really know how I did that! I also found the most adorable papers from Doodlebug and just couldn't resist doing another tea pot layout. I made this one to look like a decorated cake sitting on a cake plate. :) I know that I do tons of pastel layouts, but I really do love working with pastels! :) :) I also wanted to another Disney layout and set out to find something "original". I came up with the Main Street Trolley, this is my rendition.
The Pixie Cottage has opened up a great new line of stamps. I missed the first call for designers but this time, I AM NOT GOING TO MISS IT! I sat down last night to draw out a couple of my favorite piecings. I am keeping my fingers crossed! :)
