Title: Please don't stop the music
Journaling: You have been interested in music for quite some time now. You have even declared that my ipod shuffle is yours now. You also love to sing & dance and I think music relaxes you as well! (at the car, Julia, almost 8)

HOP with the DOLLIES!

The Design Dollies are hopping and I'm glad you are here to join us! If you came from Leah the Orange's blog then you are on the right spot, if not then head on over to the Dollies blog to be back on track.

I'm sharing here an ALL ABOUT ME layout which I did recently:

So here are just some random facts about me right now:

I am bothered by the growing number of gray/white hair that I have.
I can't multi-task.
I used to be organized (that's before I had kids).
I like retail therapy.

I hope you have noticed the Dollies header too:

Each dollie on the header actually represents each one of the members of the design team. Which one do you think is me??? Just leave a comment letting me know which dollie do you think represents me and why. Of course you have to visit all the dollies' blogs to get entered in the drawing. Let us know you finished the hop by leaving a comment at the post here. I'll pick a winner from all those with correct answers and you can win this:

Join in the fun, you have until July 25, 10PM EST (for Philippine residents, that's 10AM July 26). To find out if you won, check back at the Dollies blog on Tuesday!

What are you waiting for? It's time to visit Dana's blog! Keep on hopping girlies!

Family Ties

I've been so busy for the past 2 weeks, there are just so many things going on! It was Ally's birthday last july 14 (that's another story) and then we had a storm visit our town, and of course there's still work. Oh well, I want to share a layout I finished about a week ago, but only had the chance to photograph today...

This layout is based for the ongoing PageMaps contest. Photo was taken last May when I visited my sister & her family. Making this layout makes me miss them more...

I used OA Fly a Kite PPs for this one and some scraps too....

The element challenge over at Design Dollies is up and here's my layout! The inspiration this week is any contemporary song, nothing older than the 90's please.

Julia is a big Taylor Swift fan so I wanted to scrap about this obsession of hers. The Fearless CD has been in my car CD player for months now! Contrary to the title though, Julia is quite a coward. She's afraid of bugs, any sudden sounds, & yucky stuff. So my journaling goes: Be bold, be brave, just like one of your favorite songs! I used mostly Sassafrass for this one, and did some misting using glimmer mist and shimmerz spritz.

I really hope you can join us, the details are all here.
