WORD UP!!!!

So it's Wednesday!!!! Did ya'll check out the OLW challenge word??? This weeks is pretty cool...got to admit...it had me stumped for a bit!!! You don't even want to know how down to the wire it was for me....those who know me, know that I am always last minute on my deadlines....I just work best under pressure!!! But yesterday, I was just about in panic mode!!! So here is what I came up with for the challenge word....this weeks word being chosen by Lynn, the word is MY
gotta say that, even though this was a last minute put together, this is one of my fave layouts to date!!! I played with some digital elements on the photo...I am having a blast learning about my photoshop program...but those brushes I used on the photo...want to know where I got them??? Okay...I'll tell you....the border around the photo is from 500ml, a very cool site with some pretty cool free brush downloads. The other brushes I used I am so excited to tell you are Karla Dudley Originals!!! Yup, that very talented chica is now creating her own digi stuff and selling it at Dragon Flaire....so go cehck it out!!! I used two of the brushes from the hot stuff set ( the scroll-y like brushs down the left side of the photo) and one of the stamps from her cutie set (that cute little heart in the righ bottom corner). I added the word love to the heart. I also used the Urban Acid action on the photo...that action is very addicting!!! I change the colour option to purple and used the action as an overlay....it gives it a bit of softer effect. Anyway...total fun and like I said....I love how this turned out!!!

We had our fisrt tooth fairy visit last night!!! Yup...my son was super ecstatic about finally loosing that darn tooth!! it's been loose since about the end of March beginning of April, and his adult tooth had started to come in behind as well. He had a dentist appointment in April and the Dentist said to bring him back in a month if the baby tooth hadn't fallen out on its own. So I realized a little belatedly that a month had come and gone by about 2 weeks...oops!! So we got a dentist appointment yesterday and the dentist pulled the tooth!! Gotta tell you....my kid is sick...he LOVES going to the dentist....he was extremely excited about getting his tooth pulled!! In fact...he said he hoped his tooth didn't fall out on it's own and that he could go back to the dentist and have it pulled!!! what??? yeah...sick kid...but he got his wish!!!

And let me tell you...the toothfairy rate of infaltion is insane!!! He got 5 dollars for it being his fisrt tooth lost!!! But listening to some other kids this toothfairy pick up was on the low end of the scale!! Totally crazy....my visits from the tooth fairy were nearly as lucrative!!! What is she using these days?? Gold plated fairy wings??? hmmmm...maybe platinum sprinkled with diamond dust!!!

Alright...go get your OLW challenges completed and linked up!! Can't wait to see what ya'll do...and I am going to say again, we are extremely grateful for your continued support with our site!!! We love that you love it as much as we do!!! so thanks!!!

  1. okay, so I'm in love with your layout. Thanks for the info about the brushes .... someday when I get photoshop I will be in there like a dirty shirt! And I had to laugh about the tooth fairy ... I think I used to get like a dime for loosing a tooth. That totally reminds me of a good childhood story to scrap .... Love the word this week! Have a great one! Kim
