My first award!

Thanks to Juanita for this award! I'm so happy...and it totally made my day!

Now to pass it on...It really is hard to choose who to pass it along to, but that is what your supposed to do (so I've been told) so I'm passing on to Danno's Pookie Designs! She is an awesome designer, and I love her work! She's got plenty of freebies on her blog too! ;) Go check it out!

Where did this week go?

It flew right by, and I feel like I didn't get any scrapping done, but I know I spent alot of time on Photoshop! What the heck did I do this week?

I know on Tuesday was Kooky Spooky night at the girls school. It's a night where the kids get to go to school in their costumes and there are all different types of halloween themed educational activities for the there were cookies and juice! I got some really cute pictures of the girls, and I've only scrapped one so far(you'll see that in a little bit).

Oh, Digi Overdose created a new kit called Swept Away. It's a beautiful black and white kit, and I created these pages with it. This first one is called Gentle Strength and the photo is by MRC Photography.

This second one is of my DD's amazing blue eyes

So I got those done at the beginning of the week, but the kit wasn't released until today so I couldn't post them until now. What else......hmmmm

Oh, here is the layout of Allison from Kooky Spooky night. I used MC-Design's Warm Thoughts Kit for this.

Then I think I spent the rest of the week working on the blog design for DigiScraps3, along with creating all the CT, Designer, and Fan blinkies. You can check out the blog design here.

Well that is it for now. I have more creating to do, but I think I'm going to go watch TV and crash out for the night. Have a great weekend!

New Blog Design & More

Well I finally got this blog design thing down! The last time I messed with it I thought I was going to pull all my hair out...but a little more practice and whala! I'm so excited!!! (see it really is the little things in life that make me happy!!!)

I haven't scrapped much the past week. I had to do a massive cleaning of my house because I had the landlord coming over with the realtor to take a look at it. We are trying to purchase the house we've been renting for the past 5 years, so please keep your fingers crossed for us that all goes well. The scrapping I did do this week was mostly for a friend, so I'm not going to post them up here, but I did do this page with a kit by Digi Overdose called Snow Me Your Love. It is the daily download kit at Scrappity Doo Dah.

I hope you all like the new blog design! Thanks for looking!!!

Scrapping really is therapy for me

and you can usually tell when I'm having a bad day or a good day by the amount of pages that I do. Today wasn't the greatest of days, hence several pages got done! (and it helped that the kids were at my in-law's playing with their cousin for a few hours today so I wasn't interrupted)

This first one is actually from a speed scrap at Gotta Pixel last night. I loved the freedom we got with this speed scrap, and I'm very happy with the results! I used some silly pics from last weekend at the pumpkin patch....heck after taking almost 400 pics there was about to be one or two that were funny! So I figured I would use those to make a fun page. I used Three Dog Designs Sassy Garden Kit for this layout.

This one I call the Pumpkin Truck (I'm so original aren't I?!?!) I used a collaboration kit called Autumn Wishes. You can hop on the blog train that I got this kit from here and just follow along until you collect the entire kit. This is a very cute kit, and has so much in it!

I must be missing my husband today, something I do every day when he's traveling, but I try not to let it get to me. Today must have been one of those days where it was getting to me cause I did the next few layouts with pics of him. I'm not a mushy or romantic kinda person, but he really is my everything. I should probably tell him that more often. is one I did of him when he was in Alaska. I love love love this picture of him!!! On this layout I used Backyard Adventures by Bekah E. Designs. I've had this kit for a while now, and this is the first time I've used it. I love the deep colors in it, and I'll be using it again real soon!

This one is Kisses, and I used Three Dog Designs kit called Rainbow Connection. What a super cute kit filled with tons of papers and elements!!! I got the inspiration for this page from a scraplift challenge. Here is the original page that was my inspiration.

And one last challenge for the day was a numbers challenge. I had to use 1 picture that was at least 1/2 of the layout size AND be black & white with color accent, one word art, and one solid paper. Then I could journal and add elements as I wished. I've been holding on to this word art for a while to scrap this picture, and this was the perfect time to do it! I used a kit called Magical Wonderland that I won from the scavenger hunt on Scrappity Doo Dah. All the great designers there put this kit together and WOWZERS it's a great one!
So that's it for today. I'm going to go crash out on the couch and watch some CSI. Have a great weekend everyone!

Earlier this week I got a few layouts done but never got a chance to post them. This first one was from a challenge at Scrappity Doo Dah. (If you haven't check out that site yet get your booty over there and check them out...they rock!!!) The kit I used here is called My Big Adventure, and it is a huge collaboration kit put together to support Autism research. 100% of the proceeds from this kit go to the Autism Society of America! Besides it being a ROCKIN kit it is for a cause close to my heart! If you would like to purchase this kit it can be found here.

This next page was done with And the Leaves Came Tumbling Down by Digi Overdose and Bekah E. Designs.

This last one is made with a kit called Halloween Buddies by Jeannie Marie's Scraps. There are some really adorable elements in this kit!!!

Right now I'm working on getting some card templates put together to get a jump start on the holidays. If you are interested in photo cards (ya know the ones that everyone sends out every year with a picutre of their kids/family/pets at Christmas) just let me know!

Gulf Getaway and Lazy Daze

I've been busy making layouts, but I had decided to change up my blog in the middle of everything and messed it all up, and didn't want to post anything till I fixed it. It's still not perfect, but it will do for now.

Here are some of my newest pages...

These two were created with an awesome kit called Gulf Getaway by Vonnie's DigiWorld and Digi Overdose from Scrapppity Doo Dah.

This one is created with a kit called Lazy Daze by Kimeric Kreations on DigiScraps3.

Feelin Scrappity

Scrappity-Doo-Dah (one of the site's where I'm on the Creative Team) has just re-vamped their site and it is sooooo darn cute! If your into digital scrapbooking they are having some awesome sales to celebrate the new look, plus a bunch of challenges and games!

Here is a few more layouts I did with the Best Witches Kit by Designs by Hutchie. This is such an adorable kit, and there is sooooo much in it!

The second page isn't one of my favorites....not really my style (but I already blogged about that) but I was playing with all of the different elements in this kit and when I saw that awesome haunted house I knew I had this picture from last Halloween and thought ohhh...that could be cute!

It's almost time to pick up the kiddos...and I'm now down to 2. Melina is no longer quarantined and is going to see her kids for the first time in a week today after school!!! I know she is super excited, and so are the kids! I should probably bring my camera because I know it is going to be craziness!!! I'm happy for her but sad at the same time. We really had a lot of fun having everyone here...boy is it going to be quiet tonight! LOL
