Another quick update***
I'm so very sorry that the background isn't showing up properly.  I'm trying to figure out how to get rid of the old background, but for some reason Blogger is being very stubborn.
It's quite late here now, and I'm going to go to bed, and hopefully fix this DISASTER after getting some sleep.
Thank you all for your understanding with our blog background.

But please don't let this "Glitch" ruin your fun times for our October Release Blog Hop.


* We are experiencing a slight problem with the old template (you can see the gorgeous creation by our very talented Lynda beneath it) and we are working to fix it. So please ignore the current chaos while we work to bring up Lynda's AMAY-zing work. Enjoy the Hop!

Happy Friday, Everyone!
Wow! What a week it’s been! Congratulations to each of the winners of each Sneaky Peek for the October Digi’ this week! I am not surprised that you came up with the correct answers so quickly, you are all so very clever! Please remember to send me your email address so I will know where to send this Christmas Cutie.

Now, some exciting announcements! There will be a NEW Challenge Blog coming soon, called, "Elisabeth Bell's World," (thank you Lilian for your brilliant name idea hee hee. It's fabulous!) where the projects will not only be super fun leaving you with beautiful results worthy to cherish as a keepsake or to give away as a gift, but they will be challenging too - not just the easy stuff. Plus, on the craft projects for this Challenge Blog, any of my stamp designs can be used, as well as my digi's. 

The Fabulously talented Digi Bells DT and GDT are all involved, and I have asked Janiel, our Suuuuper Creative and talented Designer for the Digi Bells DT, to be the Coordinator for the NEW Blog Challenge blog. I am so excited to get things started, so keep your eyes on this space for more details shortly!

Also, if we are super lucky, we will get to see our GORGEOUS, NEW blog design for the Digi Bells blog tonight, created by the FABulously talented, Lynda, on the Digi Bells DT! When I saw the mock ups of the layout (Lynda provided me with several, and they were each Amay-zing!), I fell off my chair. Every. Time. We hope you like the new look. I loooove it!! Thank you for sharing your boundless talents with us, Lynda!!

And now to our exciting Reveal for October's Digi'...

Introducing Eden’s 2nd Christmas for our October Digi’!
What do you think of this month’s little Cutie? I hope you like her. She was a joy to illustrate, and I had a great little model to base her on, my own sweet, little Eden! 
Here is the picture that was the source of my inspiration featuring Eden when she was 2 years old beneath our Christmas tree. Sigh. How quickly they grow!

Eden’s 2nd Christmas digi’ is now available to purchase through my Digital Gallery on my website for your crafting enjoyment. Please read and understand my terms of use when purchasing my digi. To purchase the digi’, Eden’s 2nd Christmas, please click HERE
The Digi Bells DT and GDT - who I affectionately call, the Digi Belles - have been very, very busy creating THE most STUNning designs using, Eden’s 2nd Christmas, over the past couple of weeks. In showcasing inspiring ways this beautiful digi’ can be used on Christmas creations and crafting fun, we decided to hold our very FIRST Digi Bells Blog Hop for your enjoyment tonight!
And to gratify your immediate sweet tooth, YES, there is absolutely, yummy CANDY tonight! Woot!! Colleen, our brilliant Guest Designer, came up with a wonderful idea for our Blog Hop, giving the chance to TWO lucky winners who will win this suh-weet digi’!

Enjoyed your blog hop and your daughter is beautiful and so were the creations from the DT.
I think:
It's true, until we lose it, we don't know what we've got. But, it's also true, until it arrives, we don't know what we've been missing.

Have enjoyed going around looking at the wonderful and different creations your DT/GDT team have created they are an inspirational group
My sentence would be: Its true that we don’t know what we’ve got until we lose it, But its also true that we don’t know what else we’ve been missing until it arrives

Keep up your great work

I hope I am not too late but being in the UK I could not take part until today. My sentence is:-
It's true that we don't know what we've got until we lose it, but it's also true that we don't know what we've been missing until it arrives.
Love, love, love all the creations and the inspiration along the way showcasing this delightful little cutie.

As for the saying:
"It's true that we don't know what we've got until we lose it, but it's also true that we don't know what else we're missing until it arrives".
