HAPPY EASTER EVERYONE!!! I hope that you are all enjoying your Easter weekend. My hubby is gone out to pick up his parents and bring them in with us for the weekend. We're all going down to my SIL's house for a huge family dinner tomorrow. We're having a turkey, a ham, lots of veggies, and I'm bringing a huge pie and a cake for dessert! Yummy! The kids can't wait to get to spend time with the family. I just have to make sure that they don't eat too many Easter goodies before dinner! lol.

As you know, each month the designers at SUN get together and create some wonderful goodies for you using a common color swatch. We call this Color Splash! It's that time again and i've come up with an adorable boy/best buddies themed collection this week.

PIRATES NOT ALLOWED: Blog Train Blog Freebie!!!

Happy April Fools Day!!! And don't worry, I don't have a "fool" for you today! What I do have though is my part of the April 2011 Blog Train Blog: PIRATES NOT ALLOWED! Over 100 of the best designers in digi-land have gotten together to create this awesome collaboration for you. As some of you may or may not know, in the digital design industry, there are some people who are considered "pirates" of digital goods. Basically, a "digital pirate" is someone who will take another persons designs and claim them for their own. This has become a problem for some of my fellow designers, so, this month, we've gotten together to stand against those "pirates".

So... You must have arrived here from ANGEL HARTLINE DESIGNS.

You can snag my part by clicking the preview! Enjoy!

And just in case...

And your next stop on the Blog Train is MOON DESIGNS.
