Delay in New Posts

Sorry I haven't been able to post consistently lately. Life has been a little crazy! I haven't even been able to do much stamping lately other than at a scrapbooking retreat I attended about an hour from my home this past weekend. I've gone twice a year with a friend of mine the last few years and always have a great time. It's good to be able to focus on it and actually get some layouts completed!

I have some layouts that I was planning to share on my blog, but I got an e-mail yesterday that made me think twice about it. Someone used my recent stamp club layout (the actual photo of my layout with my DH and I's pictures) in an advertisement for their stamp camp. I'm all for CASEing projects. In fact, I find it a great form of flattery. However, I was surprised and disappointed that my work was being passed off as someone else's without permission or credit given. I know it happens all too frequently, but I think we are always surprised when it happens to us.

So - I'm planning to wait to post new projects until I'm able to get a watermark figured out. Hopefully, I'll be able to get that completed soon and be back in business. Thanks for understanding!

Wow, that is terrible, it is a shame that people are so self centered and have no regard for anyone other than themselves.

I hate this happened to you. I really enjoy your blog... check it on a daily basis.

Check out the tutorial Stampin' Kub has on his website... if you have Photoshop Elements that is. His blog is

If you don't have PSE, do a 'watermark' search on and there seem to be a few people that will make one for you for a reasonable price.

Hope this helps...

Don't let this person ruin blogging for you! Ignore her or roast her publically and then let it go. It's hard, but you'll feel better once you don't let it ruin your good time! I also really miss your posts!!!! Hang in there and have a wonderful Christmas!!!
