Blue Christmas by Trixie Scraps Designs

Hello Digi Scrappin' Friends!  It's been awhile hasn't it!  I won't bore you with why I've slacked on blog posting, but rather I will inspire you with this beautiful new Kit, Blue Christmas by Trixie Scraps Designs!

You can actually visit her blog each day for the month  December for fantastic ideas and encouragement for making this a December to Remember.  Along with each December Daily there is a freebie included.  The freebies are part of the Blue Christmas kit you see above.  Since I am so late in letting you know about this, and Tracy is so fantastic, she has the entire kit in her store right now for 50% off!  Hurry though, this sale only lasts until December 18th!

I also thought I would share with you my  layout using this GORGEOUS kit!  (And this may help to explain why I was so late in posting about this kit!!)

Thanks for stopping by!

Busy as a Bee (part two)...

Thanks for coming back!  As promised, I have more to share with you today.  Like I mentioned in my previous post, I was eager to get started with Connie Prince's fabulous kits, so first up is Bee Happy!  This is a perfect kit to work with on dreary days like the few we've been having here  north of Chicagoland!  It's been cold, wet, rainy and just downright gloomy...unless you're working with a bright, cheerful digi kit that reminds you of those warm, bright sunny days when bees are buzzing about the flowers!

Look at  how fun these papers and elements are:

You can find this fantastic kit at Gotta Pixel and Scrapbook Bytes

And here's my layout:  
For those of you that might be wondering...yes, I did make that for dinner last  night!  When trying to think of what photos I had that might work with this kit, for some reason (maybe the fact that I was hungry) I thought of this recipe!  It is one of our favorites around here (well, not the  Since I'm all about giving proper credit, the recipe that is talked about in my layout can be found at Mel's Kitchen Cafe.  I will warn you, her site is addiciting!!

Thanks again for reading my little corner of the blogger world!  

Busy as a Bee (part one)...

I have been a busy girl since my last post!  I participated in several speed scraps and challenges over the last several days.  They are a great way to learn new tips and tricks, think outside my normal scrappin "frame" and most important, complete those pages  (scroll down for some inspiration)!

I also have the privilege of joining the super fantastic creative team of Connie Prince as a guest CT for April and May!  I, of course, was eager to get started, so they were kind enough to let me do that this week!

Alright, let's talk digi kits and layouts:  Last Friday was the speed scrap at Gotta Pixel (which has become my favorite Friday night hangout).   I used Connie's Kit:  Lucky to Have You which can be purchased at  Gotta Pixel or Scrapbook Bytes or GingerScraps.

Here's my layout:

Next up I used Spring Sherbert by Jen C Designs.  This kit is the featured "drive by freebie" daily download at Digi Scraps Drive In - you should stop by the Drive and check it out!

Next in line was a template challenge over at Gingerscraps.  Again, challenging, but I'm very happy with my results!  Here was the template and my take on it below!

I used the beautiful kit Sashay by Daphadilly Art.  You can find this kit at DSDI and at Gingerscraps

This last layout was also created with Sashay and was for the Drag Race (speed scrap) at Digi Scraps Drive In!  You really ought to check one out, it's a lot of fun chatting and getting to know your fellow digi scrappers!  **there's usually prizes involved too - even better**
If you've read this far, THANK YOU!  I can be long winded!  I will be back later with part two of "busy as a bee" and more inspiration for you!  You'll also want to come back on Friday, March 25 as Daphadilly Art has a new release that you won't want to miss!  And, there just might be a freebie in it for you!

Check this out and 1 more day to save at DSDI!

Look at this adorable kit from Bonnie Blou Designs at Digi Scraps Drive In:  It's called Bait & Tackle and I knew it was perfect for ALL of those fishing pictures I have that are just waiting to be scrapped!   The colors give you that cheerful, outdoorsy feel and the embellishments are so cute!  I just adore the can of worms and the little worm himself! 

You can find this great kit at Bonnie Blou's Store at Digi Scraps Drive In

Bait and Tackle is the perfect kit for scrapping the boys and men in your life.  With a fishing theme this kit is great for all those fishing, boating and lake memories.  Even without the fish, there are tons of other great elements for your general layouts too.
This kit includes 10 solid and 9 patterned papers, over 45 elements and 3 full alphas inluding upper, lower, numbers and symbols.
Here's my layout:

And don't forget, there's still a TON of celebrating going on over at the Drive-In!  You still have a little more than 24 hours to save, save, save at the DSDI store!

Happy Shopping!

Exciting News!

I have some exciting news to share!  I am now on the Creative Team for Daphadilly Art AND Digi Scraps Drive In!  I am so excited to be working with some very talented ladies!

My first "assignment" was to work with a brand new, just released kit called FAMILY by Daphadilly Art!  I love the colors in this kit, they kind of give a calm, serene, pleasant feeling.  Kinda how I feel on those days when I just adore my family and I feel all happy and gushy about them (you know the days that make up for the everybody's arguing, no one is getting along kind of days...)  Anyway, take a look at this beautiful kit: 

You can get this great kit at Digi Scraps Drive In

I only received this kit last night, so I only had time for one layout:

I'll be back next week with another new release from Daphadilly Art that you won't want to miss!  There might even be a freebie QP for you...

Thanks for stopping by!

My First Post and a Great Collab you don't want to miss!

So, if you are reading this, thank you!!  That means you discovered my little blog!  I've been going back and forth for some time trying to decide whether or not to start a blog...I won't bore you with the details, but here we are! 

So, please bare with me as I am new to this blogging adventure and I'm sure there will be some bumps along the way.  If there's a download link that doesn't work, please let me know and I will fix it!  If there's anything on here that points you in the wrong direction or something that just doesn't work right, please leave me a comment and let me know!  Thanks so much!!

Mandy Hornbuckle of Hornbuckle Designs has gathered together some fabulous digi designers for a fantantastic Mega Kit.  "March 14-20, 2011 is National Multiple Sclerosis Awareness week, and in honor of that, 34 designers got together to create a mega-kit called "Movement."

It was such an honor to be able to work with this kit!  We have some very dear friends whose mom has MS.  She has been living with this for over 25 years and she is one of the most amazing people I know!  I did my layouts with pictures of their MSWalk from 2010.  My family and I are so inspired by them, that we are joining them in the MS Walk this year!

Here's the layouts I made:
