Reflections Layout

This is a layout I did for Nicole's Reflection kit. I really like the versatility of it. The colors go really well with Cyndi's field hockey pictures. This layout is from her Senior Night. They played at night(duh! LOL!) under the lights of the football field. This was a first for them!! Each senior was announced along with the starting lineup. AP played against Interboro, who they were tied with for 1st place in the Del Val League. They tied them 0-0 when they played them the 1st time in the season. Well...they beat them this time!! The girls were so happy! The bleachers were packed with AP fans and it was a great night! After the game was over, Coach Reutter told each senior how they've evolved as players and told them each how she sees them as people and players. It was a really nice thing to hear. Anyway, here's my layout. I'm waiting for a better team photo, but I really like how this one came out. I'm still learning, so it's nice to see my progression!
While you're at Nicole's site, be sure to check out her other kits she has created. They are all free & are wonderful!! I really love her Dreamin Kit for all of those vacation pics you may have from visiting the big mouse in FL. :o)

2 Page Halloween Layout

These layouts are from our annual Pumpkin Day. This year's celebration was held on October 12th at Aunt Marji and Uncle Tom's in Lititz. It was so warm this year so most of the guests went swimming in their heated pool...including Alexa. She LOVED it! She was actually mad when I took her out!

Alexa with Austin & with Pop Pop.

I used Nicole's Fright Nites Kit for my layouts so far. I really like how bright the colors look.

Until next time....

New Layout

I've completed another layout. This time it is for Cyndi's field hockey album. I used Nicole's kit All Boy for this one. Cyndi really likes how it came out. I'm working on the opposite page today, so maybe I'll post it later this afternoon.
I'm hoping to get out the Halloween decorations today, too. It is supposed to rain most of the weekend & I don't want to wait any longer to decorate. We're having our annual Halloween Party next Saturday, the 1st, so I really need to get moving!!! I'll be sure to post photos of the crazy & creepy food I make this year. I LOVE Halloween, so I really get into making crazy stuff that creeps everyone out!! LOL!

Well, Alexa is calling so I gotta back later!

Welcome to My Blog!

Where to start?! I'm starting this blog to let everyone know a little bit about me and my family. I am also using this blog to showcase my digital scrapbook pages that I have been creating. I was recently selected to be on a Creative Team by Nicole of Digi Designs by Nicole. She creates the best freebie kits and I love to visit her blog each week to see what's she's created. What's fun is that she gives you a part of the kit each day. I am so excited to be a part of her team! Here's my first page I created using her latest kit "Celebrate":

Nicole is doing this kit as a colab with Amber of Stolen Moments who also happens to be on her CT. Each day she also releases a part of the kit, which now becomes an awesome larger kit when combined. That's the beauty of a colab get 2 or more kits that use the same color palette and theme to create one large kit.

I want to thank Mary for turning me into a Digi Scrapbook junkie...especially for freebies!! If she hadn't, I would not have found Nicole, along with TONS of great sites full of THANKS, MARY!!!

I hope to eventually offer quick pages here, but not until I get a little better at creating pages. For now, I'll just post my layouts as I finish them, update you on our family life and maybe send you to some great sites for supplies.

Stop by to see Nicole and Amber. If you go to Nicole's entry for Sunday, October 19, you can also visit the rest of the wonderful ladies that make up Nicole's Creative Team. They all do such awesome work & I feel honored to be a part of such a great team!

Until next time....
