Digi Dare Time

I heard about this blog The Digi Dares where each week someone gives out a dare for others to scrap. I was a little nervous about participating, not thinking I could come up with anything that would even remotely compare with the amazing scrappers that participate in this challenge, but last night as I was laying in bed my idea came to me for my layout, and first thing this morning I started working on it. I am soooooo happy with how it came out!

I used a kit that is no longer available called My Big Adventure. It was a collaboration kit done to raise money for Autism Speaks. Not only is it an awesome kit, but for a cause close to my heart.

Earth Day Blog Background & Header Freebie

Want to get this adorable blog background & header? Click on over to Blog Bling! :) Graphics for this blog background & header are by Fishbowl Designs & the design was done by yours truly!

ok...I'm a little behind here

I tell ya, the day I get organized is the day I'm gonna take over the world, cause if I can manage everything I do in the chaotic state that is my life, I'd be pretty darn dangerous if it was all organized! But we all know that will probably NEVER happen! are a few pages that I did last week before my head attempted to explode, and in the midst of trying to get everything back on track it slipped my mind to post these up here.

This first one was with a darling kit called Makenzye's Garden by Pixel Perfect Designs. I did a Guest CT for her for this kit, and I absolutley LOVED LOVED LOVED working with it! So many adorable elements, and the paper was beautiful! You can go grab this kit over at Digital Scrap Ink or just click here.

This one was with Just Pinks by Fishbowl Designs. If you follow my blog you will know that I did a previous page with Just Greens last week...notice a theme going on here? Well your right...she is doing a series of kits focused on all different colors. Well, I love pink, so when this one came up I decided to do a LO about me, not something I usually do, but heck why not! So the CT for Fishbowl Designs has decided that when everyone's favorite color comes up they are going to do a page about themselves. I can't wait to see what Anne (the designer for Fishbowl Designs) does when the Just Purples comes out! So thats it for now...I have alot more pages to do since I didn't get much done last week and I'm falling a little behind.

LOTD during a migraine

This has been a rough week for me. Whenever I get one of my wonderful migraines it just knocks me out for a while, and this week was no different. I get real lethargic & cranky before it happens, and then whammo it hits and I'm usless. Luckily this one didn't last for days, but it still takes it's toll on me.

While I was away from the digi scrappin world I received the Layout of the Day at Enchanted Studio Scraps for my Spring has Sprung layout (the one in the post below this one)! I am so excited, but the credit has to go to the awesome designer for making such an awesome kit! I used My 4 Princesses Designs kit called KT's Flower Garden.

Isn't it adorable?!?!? I linked the kit for you, so go check it out!

I'll be working on some more pages this weekend (if the kids let me) PLUS I'm working on a new project (not scrapbook related) that I'll be showcasing on my Reno Creations Blog sometime in the next week or so, so watch out for that!

I hope you enjoy it, I had a blast making it! I might make an add on to this, but as of right now I'm giving this one out to you, and maybe within a week or so I'll do the add on.

Here is a page that I made with the kit along with my own little Soccer inspiration for this kit, and thank you Anne for helping me along the way! :)

Soccer Frame Freebie

Last Day Of Soccer

Well today is Skylar's last soccer game, and this afternoon she has her team party. She is very sad that the season has come to an end, but she now has a new love for the game, and is looking forward to the next season. To remember her first season of soccer I made these pages for her!

This first one was made with 3 Dog Design's kit called Punked. It is an adorable Punk/Rock Stary/Skater kinda kit. It is now available at My Life & Scrap and it is 25% off until April 16th!

The second one I made for her was with a template from Fisbowl Designs and I used the mega collab kit from Sunshine Studios called Twilight. The kit is filled with night time themed papers and elements, and the template is included in the collab kit. It is on sale for only $ grab it up now because I'm not sure how much longer the sale will go on, after that it goes up to $6!!! I love the collab kits from there, and I hate that I've missed some of the sales they have had on these awesome kits.

And of course I had to do a page with my other munchkin! This one is one of the Easter pages for this year, and I have MANY more to do. I used a great kit by Fishbowl Designs called Just Greens and it is the perfect go to kit for anything green(plus it is on sale too! I will be using this one for some upcoming bluebonnet pics, so stay tuned for those.

I haven't forgotten about the promised quick pages from my last post. I've been uber busy and haven't had the chance to complete them yet...I want them to be "just perfect" for you all. So bear with me, and I will get those to you soon! Have a wonderful day!

Photography Textures

I love taking pictures...I wouldn't exactly call myself a photographer, but I am getting better with my Nikon every time I use it, and thanks to the wonderful world of Photoshop I can edit my pics to make them even better.

Textures so much fun to use, and for the picture above I used a texture from Fishbowl Designs Grungy Overlays 2 kit. I really like the texture it gave this almost has a painting feel to it.

FYI...the new layouts with the Daffodil Dreams Kit will be posted on Saturday. This is a beautiful kit I can't wait for you all to see it!!!
