my guest gig is almost over... last call!

EDITED TO REMOVE INVALID LINKS: I wrongly assumed my guest shop would be open through the end of the day. Two hours after I wrote this I was informed that my links aren't working. Apologies to those who clicked and didn't get where they wanted to go. Guess I should of done the last call yesterday or sooner. 

My Guest Studio at Scrapbook Graphics will be closing at the end of the day, or as soon as the switch is flipped off, so if you are interested in purchasing any of these designs before they are gone for good, hop on over and pick 'em up! Not that I will never sell my designs again, but I don't have a permanent home for my designs - real life is just too crazy/busy/stressful for me to make the necessary commitment to being a full-time designer at this time. I totally looooved being a Guest Designer at SBG though! Felt a little nostalgic to be back at my first digital scrapbooking store, getting reacquainted with old friends, and making some new ones, too! I want to be just like all of them when I grow up! Heehee! Fortunately though, when the month is over I won't be going far. I'm lucky enough to still a part of the ever fabulous SBG CREW.

Here is what I had in the shop this month...

The Long Haul was my totally brand new kit for the month. Don't let the camper and canopy fool you. Despite a couple of theme-y elements, this kit is completely versatile! It's on sale, 31% off! Example layouts and additional (and larger) previews can be seen in the product description. (image is click-able and will open in a new window)

These products are from last year - I added them for the Oldies but Goodies week, but decided to let them hang around for the rest of the month. The are on sale from 44%-54% off regular prices. (all images are click-able and will open in a new window)

I would like to extend a HUGE thank you to all my long time friends, supporters, cheer-leaders, and to my customers. Your faith and support over the years means more to me than you could ever know. Thank YOU!

If you hung around Scrapbookgraphics throughout the past month, you are aware of all the fun that was had during the Summer Soiree celebration. Who went to the all day scrap chat? LOL *raising hand* I did! I did! I spent most of the day there. What a blast! But the party isn't over just yet! You still have most of the day to get in on some fun challenges for chances to win prizes! Prizes range in size from total store access to adorable posting bonuses for playing along. The challenges are EASY, too. The best part is that you have pages done to add to your family album or pieces of funky artwork to add to your portfolio.

Now on a more personal note... all I can say is WOW. I can't believe it's the last day in August already! I am attending the first set of parent-teacher conferences for my boys this afternoon. Already?! Yes. The month has flown right on by, and although I have a lot of half-finished and barely started projects leftover (which make me sort of feel like an unaccomplished slacker), I am excited for what September will bring: a family get together or two in honor of Labor Day, the beginning of cross country for my younger teen, fall baseball for my two youngest boys, cooler weather (or so we hope), my baby's 7th birthday, my older teenager will start a new after school job (fingers crossed!), and hopefully more good things! I want to keep it simple. No real life drama, please! I don't want to make empty promises, but if I can get my act together I will attempt to wrap up some of these half finished projects that are digi-scrap related and possibly add them here as freebies. Not much else I can do with them, eh? ;) Just need the TIME and motivation to finish those.

Last, but not least, if you are the praying sort my family could use your prayers. My Aunt Sherry (Dad's sister), who never smoked, was recently diagnosed with lung cancer after going to the emergency room for chest pains, they discovered blood clots in her lungs which led to the discovery of a tumor. The tumor is too close to her aorta for operation, so she has begun chemotherapy. Her PET scan last week revealed that the cancer has metastasized to her liver and bones so she is in stage IV. Aunt Sherry is seriously one of the toughest women I have ever had the pleasure of knowing and loving, so she will fight this with everything she's got, but she could certainly use your prayers, wishes, and good thoughts. Thank you very much!

I'll be keeping your Aunt in my thoughts Jessica. I'm glad you enjoyed your month and am looking forward to some of those freebies! We should coordinate freebies. I've been contemplating the same thing. I like to do it, but I don't like the work involved (stores, ads, ect).

Oops! Bummer about your shop closing up a wee bit early! I LOVE Long Haul, and was so glad to have more Jess goodness to play with!! :D

Conferences already?! Hope they went well! We've only got one week of school under our belts, and I'm already frustrated. LOL Hopefully, things will get easier once we get the hang of things.

I'll be sure to keep your aunt and your whole family in my thoughts. (((hugs)))
