Today is Canada's 145th birthday. I happen to know that because I was born in the year of Canada's 100th birthday. We plan to spend the day with friends at the lake, having fun, food and fireworks. To all of you Canadians, Happy Canada Day! (Inkadinkado leaf, computer-generated sentiment). For my American friends, just give it a few days and you'll have a holiday too!
I also have some really, really exciting news that I can finally share with you! I've been invited to be a member of the Design Team for CASology - a new challenge blog hosted by Melissa Chipperfield that will be starting up on Tuesday, July 10. We will be having weekly challenges every Tuesday. The challenge inspiration will consist of one word. The Design Team members will provide samples and a short discussion of how their creations came about. We're all so excited about this new challenge and we really hope that you'll want to play along, starting on Tuesday, July 10. In the meantime, here are the names of the other members of the CASology Design Team and links to their blogs - check them out!
