Whimsy Flyte

I am soooo excited!!! I have been picked to be a CT (Creative Team) member for the Stuff to Scrap Store!!! This is so awesome! I get to work with all the great designers over there each month and create with their beautiful kits!!! It is wonderful!!!

Anyway...this month I start off with FlowerScraps!! I LOVE Deanna's stuff so this was a great kickoff for me! I used her kit "Whimsy Flyte" to create a 2-page LO of my daughter Alexa & her "new" cousin, Toddriq. I say new because they just met since he loves in Illinois & we live in PA...he is my brother Todd's son & is so cute! He has really taken to watching out for Alexa & when we took a day trip to Ocean City, NJ(neither one had seen the ocean cool!!), he kept her under his wing on the boardwalk...I just had to snap about 20 pics!! Anyway, be on the lookout for more pics of Todd & his sons Toddriq & sure to go to the STS store to get this awesome kit, too!!!! There are a TON of awesome papers & elements, so I'm sure I'll be using this kit often!! Here's my LOs followed by the preview for the kit, which is linked to the store, where all of De's kits are 30% off this week only!!!

New Layouts

Well...I've been pretty busy over the last week or so. Between working 30+ hours when it should only be 20 & 3 soccer games a week for Austin, school during the day with Austin & Kelsey, and TRYING to keep Alexa occupied, I've actually managed to scrap a few pages! One I can't show off until next week, but here are a couple I've done for the new designer I'm CTing for. Her name is Norma & her shop is called Scrapbooks Gone Digital (SGD). She has some really great stuff, including a Disney kit I can't wait to get my hands on!!! Anyway, the kit I worked with this month is called It's a Girl & it is part of a collection that you can get in pieces or all together. The BEST thing about SGD is that you can buy a pass to her "club" and get access to EVERYTHING in the club store for only $25!!!! AND...that membership is good for a WHOLE YEAR!!! Talk about awesome!!! Anyway, here's the 2 page LO I did using the kit. I also used a template from Andrea Gold which I LOVE!!! You can get it here for FREE!!! Previews are linked to the SGD store!

I also did a LO using Britt-ish Designs kit "Let's Kick It" for some of Austin's soccer pics. I LOVE this kit! So many elements and she has some cute coordinating freebies to go along with it on her blog! Check it out!! Preview is linked to her store at ScrapMatters.

Great new FREEBIES!!!

Just For You Digi Scraps is back with a great Back to School kit that is available on her blog this week as a freebie...go check it out!! Here's what I did with it followed by the preview, which is linked to Michelle's blog.

This LO is of Minnie Mouse in Mickey's Jammin Jungle Parade in Animal Kingdom. I am having issues with my external hard drive & couldn't access pics of the kids from school & since I home school them now, I don't really have pics anymore. I decided that Minnie went perfectly with this kit!

Digi-Designs by Nicole also has a freebie kit this week, which also happens to be a collab kit so make sure you go to both her blog AND Dream Big Designs to get everything they have to offer! Here are my LOs followed by the preview for Nicole's part.

This LO is from Cyndi's Senior Prom and is of her with her good friend Nicole.

This LO is from Closing night of Bye Bye's of all 5 of the kids with both sets of their grandparents.

WooHoot and more!!!

Digi-Designs by Nicole has some exciting things in her store at Stuff to Scrap this week! First up is WooHoot. It is an adorable kit with great colors and cute owls! I'm not a big owl person, but these are just adorable!! She also has a template pack in the store called Template Temptation Volume 2. There are SIX awesome templates in this pack and they are so great!! Check out what I've done with both of these great items!

The 1st two layouts use WooHoot and I really love the colors in this kit...they go with so many photos we have.

The 1st LO is of Alexa playing with a GIANT cucumber a lady from Tom's work grew in her garden. Alexa LOVE cukes and was just so amazed by this one, as we all were!! It was almost bigger than her! LOL!

This LO is of Alexa after a swim. I LOVED this froggie robe we got from a friend for her baby shower! It is so cute with the frog eyes on top & it has come in very handy this summer after swimming!

If you buy the kit and the quick pages you get these adorable matching flairs. All preview images are linked to the store!

This is the cute!!

If you go to Nicole's blog by Wednesday, you can get a couple of awesome freebies!!!

I used the kit Dreamin by Digi-Designs by Nicole for this layout using a template from the Template Temptation pack. If you have pictures from anything Disney, this is THE kit for you! This LO is from when we went to Walt Disney World in October, 2007 and we went to Ohana for breakfast. It was so much fun and the food was awesome!! All the characters were dressed in Hawaiian clothes & they had a parade with the kids...tons of fun & great memories!

I used the kit Family Ties by Digi-Designs by Nicole for this layout using one of the templates. This kit is so versatile!!! LOTS of great elements & papers!! This LO shows off my beautiful & wonderful family!! It features one of the only photos of all 5 of my kids since Tommy no longer lives at home and one of the most recent photos of Tom & I, since I HATE photos of me! LOL!

And this is the template pack...check it out!!!
