A Sweet Tomato Bouquet for YOU!

Happy Springtime my cyber friends! The pear trees are in full bloom around here and it is so spectacular. Less spectacular is the severe allergies my children and I have to them which forces us to spend way too much on lotion kleenex and allergy meds. My DS (who is 4) also started baseball this week and I don't think there is anything cuter than little boys and big baseball gloves. And, to brag a bit, he's quite a good hitter. Of course, he's had a ton of practice with his sister these past 2 years. Sweet Tomato Designs is sponsoring his team, the Mets, this year and I'll be back with photos next week showing him off. Onward to my re-release of my springtime kit, Bouquet. I had retired it, but I blew off the dust and brought it out just in time for you to use in your springtime/easter/little girl layouts. AND if you are a newsletter subscriber, I've got a special coupon going out to you! I hope you and yours are enjoying the beauty outside!

Introducing The Princess

Do you ever have those moments when you wish you had your camera? Totally had one today as I took my son to preschool. We're having a wicked Nor'easter here at the beach today and we have all kinds of slushy snow on the ground. So I put on his rainboots and we splashed all through on the long way to school, I don't know if I've ever seen him so happy...a little wet, but happy! I so wish I had a picture to scrap of his smile, but I'll just have to document it here...and hope the slush is still here when he gets home in a few hours. LOL.

On to more scrappy matters, I've finally got the companion kit ready to The Prince. Let me introduce you to The Princess, a beautiful and soft kit ready to highlight those coy glances, sweet smiles, and first dance recitals of your little angel. And if you have one of each, or do custom announcements and want coordinating kits, you can buy them together as a bundle and SAVE big. They are 20% off today, 3/3/10 at Polka Dot Plum. And, for those designers out there, several of us PDP'ers put together a CU grab bag full of yummy stuff (I have a set of overlays and some buttons...sshhh, don't tell anyone I told you)...so grab it today as well! I hope you have some sloshy fun in your day!
