Closing Color Me Daisy and lots of catching up to do...

 I think it is time for me to say, so long to...
Color Me Daisy Scrapbook Kit Club
We have officially decided to close Color Me Daisy. Originally I had intended to cut back to every other month with a limited number of kits with no subscriptions.  Our first kit in the new format did well and sold out faster than we would have guessed. However, after having some time away from the original decision to scale back and the ability to really enjoy more of my weekends and evenings I have realized it just isn't something I want to do anymore. I'm not even sad about it anymore.

So that being said we are selling off all of what we have left in "Mystery Boxes".  The boxes are $30 plus flat rate shipping costs and each box will contain at least $100 worth of scrapping goodies. They will be filled with past kit and add on left-overs.  We have a limited number of boxes available, get yours while you can.

Business stuff out of the some catching up.  Work has been busy, I have been sick with a sinus infection and ear infection that made me so dizzy I couldn't even look at the computer for a couple of days.
Mike has been cooking a lot on the grill lately and I have been scrapping (when I wasn't sick, working or finishing the last of this year's season finale's).

I was pretty happy with the American Idol season finale. I liked both Lee and Crystal and so I didn't really care who won, but I guess I was slightly pulling for Lee. I had been out of the running on my American Idol pool for a few weeks. It didn't matter who won, I wasn't going to win any money.

Now that American Idol, Desperate Housewives, 24 and Survivor are over I should have lots of time to scrap while watching Glee episodes after the kiddos are in bed.

I got my May Mosh-Posh kit a few weeks ago and I wasn't sure if I it was too girly.  But after perusing their gallery I changed my mind.  This weekend I have finished 5 layouts with the kit so far, and will probably get at least one more out of the kit bits and pieces I have left over.

I love these pictures I took last weekend of Mike reading to Nicholas. I also love my 2 new Martha Stewart border punches.

I am thinking I need to make these cupcakes again.

We've been spending a lot of time in the backyard lately, these pictures were from Mother's Day.  Nicholas likes playing with his golf club, and we like when he isn't trying to take Jackson out with it. These pictures were when he was playing with it appropriately. :)

I loved  Amy Coose's layouts in the Mosh Posh gallery, so I felt the need to scraplift a couple of them. This one is inspired by Amy's take on the MP May sketch:

And this one is inspired by Amy's "Love Note's" layout:

I have lots more of stuff to share over the next few days, including a review a long overdue review on my CKC Mesa classes, some tasty things to share from "My Man and His Grill" and some layouts from my last Studio Calico kit.

I am so sad to see CMD go but if your heart isn't in it anymore then you are smart to close the doors. Sometimes scrapbooking for work can become drudgery and now you will be able to just do it for fun. I am so happy that I was able to be a part of things for a little while and wish you the very best, Michelle.

I was just wondering if a new kit was going to be revealed soon.... guess not! ;) Sounds like it was a good decision for you, so congrats on making it. I'm sure it feels good, really. You know what mean? Not having that on your mind. Now you can just enjoy scrapping, which I must say.... LOVE your LO's you just posted! So cute and fun!!
