Internet Issues

It's too bad there's so many people out there with nothing to do and figure it's their mission to hack sites. Who raises these kind of people? A lot of sites are down right now and have been since at least yesterday. I know I've tried accessing a few sites Scrappity-Doo-Dah, DigiscrapAddicts, a few blog widget sites and they call come up with "The page you're looking for wasn't found." What a drag! It must drive these site owners crazy! Anyway, hopefully the host server they're using is able to fix everything soon and these sites don't lose too much business.

I just recently entered a contest at Scrappity-Doo-Dah and was chosen as one of their site CTs. But of course, because theirs is one of the sites being affected by this latest "hacker" issue, I can't get going with them and communication is pretty much at a standstill. Anyway, I'm SO excited to be part of another team. I've had fun at GDS and the people there I've gotten to know are so family-friendly!

It was a three-week contest and for two of the three mini kits, we had to create two pages. That can stretch you a bit when you're limited to papers and elements in a mini kit. You couldn't add any outside elements so it tested your creativity. Here are some of the pages I created from the mini kits they provided for the contest:

I also just recently volunteered to do some designing for a woman who is putting together a charity kit for some children that she and a few of her acquaintances are adopting from Haiti. It sounds like it has been a long process for them, but hopefully things will happen soon and these children will be welcomed to some loving families. There will be two kits - one issuing at the end of May and the second kit at the end of June. When I know the store(s) the kit will be sold at, I will post it here.

Here are the latest kits from GDS:
If you spend $10 on a single order you get this Collaboration Kit - A Mother's Worth FREE!

Here's a page I made from it:

Marshmella Designs at GDS has a new kit called CHEERY here's the kit and a page I made from it:

Verena Karolyi Designs has a great new kit out called PEACH FACED LOVEBIRD and this is a page I created from it:

I'm also a CT member for Julie Marie Designs. She sells exclusively at Gotta Pixel
Here's a page I made from her kit called RED, BLUE and DENIM. 

I saw this cute kit at Scrap Orchard and I just had to have it. Got it when it was "Fresh Fruit" still, so got it at a good discount. It's a collab by Ziggle and AnnaBV called EINSTEIN. Here's a page I created from it:

Well off to do some gardening before the BIG hockey game tonight. Canucks have to beat the Blackhawks in order to extend the series to a seventh game. Come on boys! We've got a few injuries on our defence, so our young guys have to step it up tonight! Whoohoo! Go LOU!
