Happy Friday!!

Cup of coffee in hand, and daughter is fed....time to share my Friday scrapping news! (This is becoming part of my Friday morning routine!)
The first kit I am going to show you is super yummy and super cute and definitely ready for fall (even though we don't really ever get a fall here in LV - I still love this kit!). Amber of Stolen Moments titled this fabulous Autumn kit, Sweater Weather, and its found at both of her stores - Sunshine Studio Scraps and Scrap Matters (click the store name to take you right there!) AND for today only you can get it for a steal!! It's 20% off so hurry over and take advantage of that deal!
The kit:

And my layout....I used pictures of our first day of cold last October. Alahna looked so dang cute in her hoodie that I just had to break out the camera! hehe!

The next item is an Alpha that is actually a re-release from something Amber originally put in SUN, and is now available at SM. It's called Hodge Podge Alpha Stamps - Primary, and I used her kit Play All Day (also shown below) to create my layout.

And my layout....I used pictures of Alahna playing with our best-friends daughter, Alexandria, last December when they visited at Christmas time. I thought the colors in the pictures matched the kit and alpha perfectly!
Remember my post yesterday about my first Speed Scrap ever?? Well I participated in one at GoDigitalScrapbooking hosted by one of the Designers I CT for, Val of geniaBeana Scraps. I used another Designers kit though (hehe - good thing they are friends and like to collab together!), Kimi's Kreations newest kit titled Country Caramel. It is perfect for those fall pictures with the beautiful earthy tones, AND it is also on sale right now for only $2.40!!!! You seriously can't beat that - so hurry over and get it now!!!
The kit (linked to her store!):

And my speed scrap LO! How do you think I did for my first one ever?? I hope to do another one next week! It was fun and I like the social aspect of it!

Well I need to get my butt in gear and go shower so we can leave for a Birthday Party today. I am super excited also because I have a Birthday present arriving in the mail for me today....we ordered a brand new IMac computer for my present!!! Our current desktop has been giving me tons of grief by freezing constantly! So this is what I wanted for the big 3-0! I can't wait to play!!!
That's all my news! Have a great weekend and TTYS!

Autumn is quickly approaching!!

What a week I have had! Between getting back in the swing of "normal" life after vacation and getting back in my groove of scrapbooking - let's just say I am one tired momma! I am going to make tonight my TV night and crack myself open a bottle of vino and just veg! I think I have a couple of my guilty pleasures in my DVR, hehe!

So onto the scrapping. I have done 6 layouts in the past 6 days! I don't normally scrap that much in one week, but lets just say I was making up for missed time! I also did my first ever Speed Scrap this week, and had a ton of fun! I can't wait to try my hand at another one next week! Because I have so many layouts to share I am going to do 3 today and 3 tomorrow (2 of them don't release til tomorrow anyway!)

The first is a re-release from Stolen Moments and now can be found in both of her stores at Scrap Matters and Sunshine Studio Scraps. I will link the kit to her Scrap Matters Store. The kit is titled, Hopeless Romantic, and I HAD to scrap one of my favorite wedding photos with this gorgeous kit. I based it off of our first dance and even included the words to the song on the LO.

And my layout with our first dance song, Testify by Phil Collins:

The next kit is from Lyndsay Riches over at Scrap Orchard. She titled this one, Little Angel, and I thought it was perfect for Alahna's Valentine's Day photos. I love the doodley (is that word?) elements and the bright colors! Here's the kit (on sale Friday only!!!):

And my Layout:

And here is the start of my Autumn Kits and Layouts (I have 2 more to show tomorrow). This bright and whimsical kit is by Desytka Designs and she released it at her newest store first, Dreamland Digital Designs. Check out her latest, Autumn Wishes, at the brand new store:

And my layout of my little pumpkin (it seems like just yesterday she was as small as the pumpkins in the patch!):

I will show you my Speed Scrap LO tomorrow with a new release and a re-release from Stolen Moments. Have a great Thursday night and TTYS!

Stolen Moments Re-Releases!

Happy Friday everyone!! I am officially home from my super long vacation and extremely exhausted! It was a long day of travel yesterday and it feels good to be home! I am happy to have Alahna back in her OWN bed and me back in mine! hehe!!

Now on to my Friday scrapping news!

Amber of Stolen Moments has re-released some of her products into each store. I was able to play with two of these products! The first is being released today at SUN and will be 20% off only today!!
The next one is a kit that she originally sold at SUN and is now selling at SM - and is also 20% off today only!!
And I did a LO using both the template and the kit together:
I am glad to be home and happy to be able to scrap again! I missed my favorite hobby and can't wait to get creative again!!

Got one more LO done while on vacation....

I am getting ready to pack up my things and we are heading back home to Las Vegas tomorrow. We have had a great time in Hawaii, visiting with my family and old-school friends! I will miss them all dearly, but it will be nice to be back in my own bed and have Alahna back in hers!! ;)
I was able to do one more LO this week while on vacation using Kari Q's fabulous new release (well I guess not that new cause I have been away for 2 weeks now!), titled Mixed Up Heart. Here is the kit preview (as always linked to the store):

And my LO...I kind of stuck with the theme of the kit and used some of the wording from one of my favorite books I read to Alahna, "I'll Love You Forever."

Two new kits released today!

You know what I was thinking earlier today?? Good thing I brought my lappy on vacation with me!! There has been so much exciting news in my little digital scrapbooking world this week that I would be completely out of the loop if I wasn't "plugged in!"

The first is that fun little sneak peak I showed you a few days ago....Well it's a collab between Kimi's Kreations and geniaBeana scraps (my 2 CT's that merged, remember??) titled, "Hoo's My Boy!" It is their first official collab and is exclusive to their new store, GoDigitalScrapbooking. Click on the image to take you straight to the store!! OH, is only $2.50 right now!! HURRY and get this fun kit before it goes up!!!!

And of course my LO (which I did before I left for Hawaii!)....I thought this kit was perfect for our family camping pictures. I am sure I will be using it again real soon considering I have a ton of Dinkey Creek pictures to scrap!

And the second kit is by one of my newest CT's, Amber of Stolen Moments. She previously released this one at Scrap Matters, and is releasing it today at Sunshine Studio Scraps for the first time. A funny story (okay well kinda crazy! hehe!) goes along with my LO on this one...I was having some serious scrapping withdrawals and felt guilty about being accepted to this new and fabulous CT and not producing any work yet, so I downloaded Photoshop Elements on the laptop and played with this beautiful kit! I don't love how my LO turned out b/c the program is unfamiliar to me, and seems much more basic, but it was fun for me to play while Alahna slept!
You can get this kit HERE for SSS and HERE for SM. (Just a hint's on sale today only, Friday, at SSS!!)

And that LO I was talking about:

I hope you all have a fabulous holiday weekend and take tons of pictures!! You know I have already and will share them with you very soon!

Lotsa big news again today!!

This is the week of big news it seems in my digital scrapbooking world! And I am all the way on the other end of the US still enjoying my 2 week vacation in Hawaii. I still have no access to my obsession of scrapping, but I can share all the big news with you on my lovely blog! hehe! ;)

So the first is just an extension of yesterday's fun blog train (which, BTW, you can still take advantage of!!)....
As you know, Kimi and Val (geniaBeana) will be collabing at their new store (GDS) on a regular basis. Their first collab is ready to go!! It's called Hoo's My Boy, and it's awesome! The best part? They're giving away two FREE copies - one at DigiScrapAddicts (hosted by Super Spy Zeee) and one at DigiShopTalk (hosted by Super Spy AZK). You can post in both threads for two chances to win! Here's a sneak peek:

I will post my layout using this kit once it is released on Friday!

And my second little bit of good news is regarding my newest CT - Amber of Stolen Moments has been offered a permanent spot at Scrap Matters and is celebrating my offering 20% off her entire store through September 3rd!! Check out her blog HERE for more info, and her store HERE for the beautiful products!
