My brain hurts!

Wow....didn't the Ladybugs do well yesterday! I think it's fun to see 10 different takes on one image...everyone's styles are so different.
 
I had an incredibly early start yesterday dropping the pups off just after 8. Why? I had a date with my friend Gayle at my house. She was going to try and teach this old dog some new tricks. All I can say is she has the patience of a saint ... Saint Gayle lol. I've now got some new albeit shaky skills on my laptop and can now use programs and buttons I never knew existed! There was so much to take in (my brain is totally overloaded!) I knew I couldn't rely on my memory so wrote everything down. We worked from 10 am until almost 3 when Gayle had to pick up her kidlets from school. I had a 15 minute chat with DLS who was just back from a 3 week trip to Maui for a quick catch up then got out my notes to practice my new skills. That 15 minutes was my downfall...I should have kept going as my mind went blank even though I had my written instructions in front of me. After a few false starts and a bout of hyperventilating I soon got back into it and think I could now do it with my eyes shut...ok maybe with one eye shut lol.
 
I said I had some news so here it is....next Tuesday (November 8th) we're having a Blog Hop celebrating a new Digi release!!!! But it's a VERY special blog hop because it's LCI's 1st Blogaversary!! I know I've been blogging for two years but it's a year since we started with a DT. Along with the normal Blog Hop prizes there might be some prizes that one or two of the Ladybugs will be giving away. All you have to do for now is add the fabulicious badge Lisa designed to your sidebar and await further instructions lol.
 
 
I do hope you will join in the fun :-D
 
Catch ya later x
