Tribute to the Navy Alpha

So, again a big gap since I've last had the chance to write. I've been busy, busy, busy with wedding plans. I cannot believe the amount of effort it takes to put this stuff together! It's shocking! I honestly don't know how people put together these enormous weddings. Even with us just running off, it's somewhat of a production! However! It's all coming together really nicely... I got my wedding dress and it's being altered as we speak, we got the rings and they are getting appraised for insurance, I picked a florist and the flowers have been decided on, travel arrangements are done and the honeymoon is pretty much organized! I've just got a few smaller items to look after and I'm done! I can't wait to go! I think I'm more excited about getting away, and enjoying 2 carefree weeks with my new husband than anything else.

In between all of this, I have decided to dismantle my old website, and bring all of the products to I'm slowly doing this, so as an inside scoop, if you're a reader here, don't go spending any money at NursesDesigns! LOL! Here's something from the "Tribute to the Armed Forces" that I put up today. It's free, as always.

Sorry! This product is no longer available for download.

There's lots more to come, so check back occasionally! I'll get it all up as soon as I can! Have a great weekend... I'll be working the "real" job.

Calculate Your Bills IQ

Money management is an area that we could all use a little help with, right? Even with a very money-savy fiance, I often find myself wishing for a little more security. Here is an interesting little quiz you can try find out how well off you are with relations to your bills, credit, debt, budget, wealth and life plan. You can actually learn a few things along the way.

I did it and got a score of 89% which is a B. Hey! At least I didn't fail! LOL! I learned a few things from the quiz, one thing being that since I have met my fiance, I have made some great changes for our future. However, as always, there is definitively room for improvement. One obvious step is to become debt-free as soon as possible. That is easier said than done, of course. Achieving this goal may be more manageable with the development of a budget and a little Debt help. I actually found it encouraging to see that I was generally on the right track. Although I'm sure we all find retirement somewhat of a scary concept, it's something that I look forward to and hope to have many years of it with my nearest and dearest!

A Visit From My Parents

Sorry Guys! I know I'm being pathetic with my blog and with My Digital Addiction, but I am so short on time with everything that is going on! Please forgive me and know that as soon as things settle down a little, I'll be much better!

I really wanted to say a couple of words to a couple of my readers. Thank-you so much, Sharon, for taking the time to write a sweet, kind comment each time you come. You have a gift of spreading smiles and I hope you know how great that is! I truly appreciate your words. Linda, I just LOVE you and I've never even met you! Your note was so awesome to read... you are one of the greatest reasons that I absolutely love Digital Scrapbooking!

I had a wonderful, wonderful time with my parents! Here they are at the Gaylord Texan Resort. What an awesome place! Has anyone ever been there? It's absolutely incredible... acres and acres of indoor gardens and walkways and water, all covered with a clear dome to make you feel like you're inside! Best part - it's 72 degrees all the time!

Best of all we were able to spend some real quality time together, which was very special. They were able to get to know my fiance a little better too - it couldn't have been better!

More Planning

I am amazed to say that my wedding and honeymoon plans are all winding down. I can't believe it's all come together so easily and nicely! The more I get things planned, the more excited I get! What's funny is, as much as I am excited to marry my incredible fiance, I am just as excited to go on this honeymoon with him! We are planning on flying to Alaska for a cruise, but first we are getting a car rental and spending a couple of days in and around Denali National Park. Just take a look and drool!

Meanwhile, I have to clean my house! My parents are coming in to town to visit and I have to pretend that I keep this place like a civilized human... It's always hard to know what to do when they visit, especially since it's so freaking hot outside! We rented a minivan - wish I knew about about the 50% off deals at Advantage at the time - so we didn't have to cram them into our small vehicles, and I've found a few fun things to do with them inside, like wine tasting etc. Wish me luck! It's the first time they will be spending a significant amount of time with my fiance!

"Tribute to the Army"

I got so wrapped up in the day yesterday that I forgot that I was going to give away a kit! I wanted to give away a kit called "Tribute to the Army" from my series of four kits called "Tribute to the Armed Forces." I thought the Fourth of July was as good a day as any, if not more. It is because of these people who fight for our freedom that we are able to have such wonderful days, enjoying our families. Here is "Tribute to the Army." You can click on the preview to be taken to the Download section of My Digital Addiction. And yes, as always, IT'S COMPLETELY FREE!

I also created a little Quick Page for anyone who wants it. You can download it below, or HERE in the Download Section. Enjoy!

Just checking in to say Happy Fourth of July to all of my American friends! I'm so excited to have two days off in a row with my fiance. And guess what we're going to be doing??? Cleaning the house and yard. How fun is that?! Actually my parents are coming to visit next week, which is HUGE, so I have to make it look like we keep a somewhat orderly existance. LOL!

I've been feverishly working on wedding and honeymoon planning. The more I get into it, the more I get excited about our Honeymoon cruise to Alaska. This has been a dream of mine for years, so I can't believe it's actually coming true! Nor can I believe the amount of planning that has to go into it! Thank-God, I found this website that pretty much walks you right through everything, right down to what excursions to book, a packing list... and they're serious about their stuff! They've got the deals right down to the kind of binoculars you should get for optimal wildlife viewing to the 5.11 Tactical pants recommended for hiking in Denali! So things are finally really starting to come together!

Have a great Holiday, folks! Enjoy the outdoors and the BBQs with your family and friends!

The Designer of the Month is Back!

I've been so busy lately that my Designing and Digital Scrapbooking has taken a back seat. In the process I missed 3 Designer of the Month spots! But we're ba-ack! For the month of July, we are honored to have Dede Smith as our Designer of the Month.

There are so many Designers in the business right now, that it's very easy to get lost in the fray. I typically have about 5 favorite Designers and stick to their designs. However, this is why I find the Designer of the Month so fun. I get to "discover" Designers, new and old, with a wide variety of talent and style. Dede's designs are some of the sweetest I have seen in a long time. Cute, cuddly little teddy bears, beautifully coordinating designs, richly textured papers... you're going to love them!

Dede's designs can be found at Digital Scrapbook Pages or at her blog, Designs by Dede. To read Dede's interview, you can visit our Forum, and also be sure to stop by the Download Section of My Digital Addiction to get the coupon she is giving out to her store!
