And the Lovebug is BACK! YEAH!!!!!!

My beloved Lovebug is back online, the forum is back up and running and so is the store, the gallery is on it's way to being back.
Thanks to everyone for their patience and understanding
Huge thanks to Allan for working his butt off to get us back up quickly and easily (well easily for us, not so much for him LOL), but we sure do appreciate it.

Productive Weekend

Well since Allan is still diligently working on getting Lovebug back up and running, I thought I would share a few of the layouts I completed this weekend at a local crop.
The crop was a big success for me, not so much for the organizer, sadly I think she barely broke even, for some reason participation was very very low. Maybe I'll have to organize one myself and see what I can do.

Anyway here they are, remember you can click on them to see them larger. Most of these are completed using up my neglected Lovebug kits that piled up on me over the summer. They are awesome kits and I had a blast playing with them finally.
This first one "You" was for the Big Picture Scrapbooking Class, Design your Life by the amazing Cathy Zielske..if you missed out on this class, keep your eyes open if she offers it again, you will NOT regret it!

Lovebug Update

For those who may not have received it, the following is an email that Denise has sent out. Also please note everyone that with the server being gone, I can not access my events email so if you need to contact me, you can either through this blog or at my personal email address.
Let's all send good vibes out to Denise and Allan who are working so hard to get us all "back home"

We're still here .........................


But it appears that our host server is not! We woke up Sunday morning to no site and after trying to get a response from our host server with no luck we decided it was time to change hosting companies.

Allan is diligently working on getting the site transferred to the new host and will hopefully have it up and running some time tomorrow.

We can't access any of our Lovebug Scrapbooking emails at this time or our admin panel to process orders. As soon as the site is back up and running we will get the orders shipped out out ASAP.

We apologize for the inconvenience and we thank everyone for their patience.

LOVEBUG site is down

For all those who have emailed me since yesterday and those who haven't but read my blog, yes indeed the Lovebug site is down, there are issues with the server.
Denise and Allan are aware of the problem and have put in a support ticket so hopefully it will be resolved soon.
Personally I am going through withdrawal, I feel like I am completely disconnected from my peeps...sighhhhh
Guess I have no choice but to actually do some housework, that bites LOL

Okay Megan, but you know you should be studying

Well my most lovable niece Megan called me today from Thunder Bay and of course had to remind me that I hadn't updated my blog in awhile. Poor thing, university is such a breeze for her that she has time to read my blog..isn't that touching LOL?

Been busier than a one-armed paper hanger (no offense to any one-armed paper hangers who might be reading) the last few weeks, and since DH is home this week on holidays, my schedule has completely flown out the window. It's a good thing I love the man or I just might have to kill him...anyhooooooooo..

Will try to post tomorrow once I get some things scanned that I wanted to share with you all, more proud Mom moments, but for now how about a few layouts that I actually got done recently?

These first two were done for the amazing Cathy Zielske's Design Your Life class, I swear I will meet this woman some day, I could really party with her, she is as nuts as I am. Both layouts are based on sketches by the Divine Ms Z and the "design your life" logo in the centre of the layout was designed by her as well.

These 2 layouts were just ones that I finished the other day as well. For the "Words to Live By", I painted the background cardstock, added some unused Thickers and painted over them as well to create a little collage background.
"The Door" was one that started out as something different and as I looked at the photo more, the journalling ended up being what popped into my head as I reminisced.
**remember you can click on the image to see a larger view, the "Words to Live By" is special since I found this note pinned to Logan's door and it did my heart good to see him putting up this little reminder for himself. Love that boy!
