More Layouts

I've been having tons of fun playing with some great kits this week!  First up is Pretty Cozy by Mad Genius Designs.  This kit has great colors and lots of glittery elements.  I did 2 LOs with this kit & then the preview follows, which is linked to the store.  Check it out!

This 1st layout is using a template by Flower Scraps and was done for the Template Challenge over at STS.  You get a great template for free & then you upload it to the gallery for points!  At the end of the month, all of your points are totaled and you can earn a FREE gift certificate!!!  Awesome, huh?  Check out all of the great challenges!

This 2nd LO using Pretty Cozy is over our dining room table for Christmas Dinner.  It was the 1st time we've hosted & I really tried to go all out.  It turned out to be a pretty small gathering, but we wound up with soooo much food and great company anyway!  This LO was done during a Speed Scrap at STS.  If you've never done one, you are really missing out!!  You get 7 instructions over an hour and then you get another hour to finish & upload your LO to the STS gallery.  You can check out the Speed Scrap Schedule here.

Here's the kit preview, which is linked to MGD's store at STS.  Check it out!

The other kit I used this week is In the Purple Spotlight by Misty O'Brien.  This is a really pretty kit with shades of purple and lavender with swirls, butterflies and a ballet dancer.  There is also a kit with greens in it called In the Emerald Spotlight.  Check out my LOs and then click on the preview to get the kit at STS.

This LO was done for the Quote Challenge.  I thought this photo of my dad dancing on stage during my niece's ballet recital was PERFECT for this quote & the kit.  He is so crazy!  Check out the Quote Challenge here.

This LO is another Speed Scrap LO.  I love the purples with the B&W photo.  Really makes for a pretty LO.


Here is the kit, linked to the STS Store.  Be sure to check out the Emerald Spotlight, too!!

Assorted Layouts

Here are some layouts I've made over the past few weeks or so...

This LO uses the kit "Zebralicious" by Just For You Digi Scraps.  It is a really cool kit with lots of zebra stripes in several bright colors.  This LO is from our Poconos weekend earlier this month.  My husband Tom surprised us girls with Winey *itches shirts for the weekend & they matched this kit PERFECTLY!!  We never did get a group shot, but I did get pics of most of the gals:)  You can get the kit at STS here


This LO is using Winter Wonderland by Red Genius Enterprises.  We had 2 snow storms right in a row in the beginning of February, something that doesn't happen on this side of PA.  The 1st one was while we were in the Poconos & dumped 28+ inches on us between Friday & Saturday.  THEN on Wednesday of the same week, it snowed another 18+ inches.  It was crazy!  We only got about 2 inches in the Poconos, which was VERY ironic! You can get the kit here at STS


Thanks to an internet friend, Sarah, I found a designer named Sara Ellis.  She has such cute kits with LOTS of embellishments.  I loved this kit Happy Blue Year because I knew I could use it for Cyndi's field hockey pics and Austin's soccer pics since it is all shades of blue.  I am a fan of Sara's on Facebook and she announced she was hosting a speed scrap yesterday, so I ran over & played.  This was the LO.  Word to the wise...if you play with Sara, follow her intsructions TO THE LETTER!  LOL!  She doesn't let you deviate AT ALL from her instructions!!  Hee hee!  You can get this kit over at Scrappity Doo Dah.
Become Sara's fan on FB & she sends sale info & coupons quite often!

The next 3 layouts are from my wedding day.  I don't have too many of these photos on my computer since we got married before the digital days, so you may have seen these photos before.  I used the kit "The Wedding Collection" the Entire Collection by SGD Designs.  This kit is HUGE and includes word art and quick pages, too.  You can buy the kit separately, too, OR you can join the SGD club and get all of Norma's kits FOR FREE all year long!!  It's only $25, too!!  Great deal, huh?  Go to SGD now to get it!!



This LO is also from a kit by SGD Designs called Mouse Memories.  LOTS of Mickey stuff in it!!

Every Thursday, I find myself kicking myself because I forget to do a LO for Britt-ish Designs.  She has TONS of kits that can be used for those trips to visit the mouse.   You can also use them for any theme, too.  What's great is that she makes kits to go for specific parks or rides, so you have the PERFECT elements to go with your photos.  Anyway, Britt has a new release almost every Friday and if you send in a LO using ANY of her products(free or purchased) by Midnight Thursday, she sends you one of her new releases FOR FREE!!  Sometimes it is something small, like an alpha but sometimes it is a gift cert for her store or a kit!!  She also posts everyone's layouts on her blog.  You can check out her blog here and her store over at Scrap Matters here.  She also hosts challenges at Mouse Scrappers and often gives unique prizes of Disney related can go to Mouse Scrappers here. 

This LO uses Britt's Stacked Templates Vol 2, Monstrosity & High School Never Ends.

This LO uses Monstrosity
 The next 2 LO use Mouse in the House and Miss Kitty Add on
