Happy Saturday Everyone!

I'm so glad you have joined us for our big kick-off Blog Hop!!
I'd like to say a huge thank you to you the hoppers and to this fabulous team you see below.
These ladies are fun, talented and super sweet!  I am blessed to have them on the TPE CT!!


This is me...Lori Boyd.
The wife of one, amazing, made just for me, mn who loves the Lord and his family with all his heart.
A downright good guy...I like him a whole bunch!! ♥
I'm a mommy to 6 sweetie pies...16 to 16 months.  We homeschool, we color, we sing karaoke, we laugh and we are blessed.
I love to take photos.  So digital scrapbooking made perfect sense. I use My Memories software, i love is easy for me and I can still be creative & have fun!
You are welcome to use this code 


to get MM software for yourself.  It gives you $10 off the software and $10 to spend in the shop on kits! YAY!

Here are some of my layouts:


Along the way you will get to meet each CT Designer, you'll get to see a sample of her layout talent and  if you leave her some comment love you will have a chance to win a prize from our wonderful Sponsor,

Just in case you missed this part of the post on the TPE blog, I added it here too!
Our wonderful sponsor is my sweet and good and talented and beautiful friend Mye De Leon.
When I first started digi scrapping, thanks to an awesome software called My Memories (more on that later) Mye was my favorite kit designer at the MM shop.  Not long after I started...I had all her kits and loved everyone of them.  She now has a shop at Pixel & Co. and you can find her HERE.
Mye has recently had a sweet baby boy named Alphonse, but very soon after his birth they were given some extremely scary news.  Please read his story HERE and find out how you can help.
They are in great need, both prayerful and financially.  In order to get the surgery that will save this baby's life, Mye and her husband MUST come up with over 12,000 this month.  Not only can you purchase from her can also donate (anything amount WILL HELP) using her PayPal address:
Please read her story...this is VERY important to me and know you wonderful TPE followers can help make a HUGE difference to this family, most of all this baby's life.
Thank You in advance for your love and support to Mye and her family!

Ready to hop?  Your next stop will be to the super fabulous Claudia!!
