Happy Black Friday!! WAAAAAY LATE!!!!

So for some reason I had this blog post mostly set up and mostly ready to go last Friday when it was supposed to, and for some reason I never posted it!! Oops!! Does better late than never apply?? Well let me just share you what I worked with last week and give you the links, cause you can still buy the kits! ;)

First up is Autumnal by geniaBeana Scraps. Fun for all those Thanksgiving pictures you just took last week!!

The layout I did was of Alahna's First Thanksgiving:

Next up was a grab bag by WM [squared] Designs of Scrap Matters which features this Christmas kit titled Santa Baby:

My layout used one of the templates in the Grab Bag along with the date stamp and bonus alpha:

And the final kit I want to share is by Stolen Moments of Scrap Matters. She teamed up with Graham Like The Cracker to create this Christmas collab titled, One More Sleep.

My layout (which earned me a treasured GSO!) is of our day-trip to the Bellagio Conservatory last Christmas season:

I am slowly but surely catching up on my Creative Team duties! I am sad to say I had to resign from a few of my teams - I didn't have the time to devote to being a great team member and didn't want to be a slacker! I am no longer on the Bella Scraps, Kimi's Kreations, K2 Kreative Krew (Kari Quinto and Kris Myers), and Desytka Designs teams. Thank you to all of you for allowing me to work with your designs!!

I will have a few new releases to share on Friday - so check back then!!!

So glad this week is over!!!!

Happy Friday once again, fellow scrappers!! Let me just tell you how glad I am that this week is over! It has been a rough one in our household! We were supposed to be on vacation this week - a 5 day Cruise ended with a few days in San Diego and a few days in LA which included Disneyland. Well my 2 and 1/2 year old came down with a nasty bacterial infection which caused us to cancel our vacation. The poor girl had a high fever for 5 days with other bad tummy issues. I felt so bad for her. But this momma is exhausted!! Thankfully she is feeling much better and we will get on the road this morning and do the second half of our trip in LA and Disneyland!! WOOT!

Wanna see a few new goodies?? Stolen Moments over at Scrap Matters has created a fabulous new snow/winter kit, titled Chocolate Frosted Snowflakes:

As well as these fabulously layered templates titled, Just Call Me Lori:

Here is what I created using both of her new products:

The next new release is a collab between Lyndsay Riches and Wild Dandelion Designs of Scrap Orchard! They titled it, Sweet Sugar Holiday, and it is full of sugary sweet holiday goodies! Check it out:

And my layout of my little girl last Christmas!! This kit is way too cute for words!

Hope you all have a great weekend! I am going to be computer free til next Tuesday.....going to enjoy the rest of our vacation!!

Happy Friday!

Happy Friday, fellow scappers! Did you all make it through DSD?? After having had such a busy 2 weeks prior, it was nice to only have a few new releases to work with this week! The first couple are from Stolen Moments at Scrap Matters. She has these fabulous new templates today titled, Just Call Me Y:

And these cut-out family templates:

And my favorite of the three are the date bits titled, Date-Go-Round:

Here's a layout from me using all 3 of those as well as Stolen Moments kit titled, Pop & Fizz:

The next kit to share is by Wendy of WM [squared] Designs. She teamed up with Mickey B Designs to create this super fun dino themed kit titled, Extinct:

And obviously I don't have a boy (yet, hehe!), so I scrapped about one of Alahna's favorite books about Dinosaurs and how she likes to run around the house screaming ROAAAARRR!

The last kit I scrapped with this week is from Kari Q Designs over at PDW. It's called Color Me Autumn and is absolutely beautiful! Check it out:

And my layout using it (and also Stolen Moments date bits again, too!):

I am leaving on a jam-packed vacay on Monday and will be gone til at least Tuesday the 24th. So there will be nothing from me next week!! I will try to make up for it by creating a little freebie for you the following week! Have a great weekend!

Happy Kick Off to DSD (Friday!!)

Because I have so many fabulous Creative Teams that I have worked oh-so-hard for this week, I thought I would break my kit previews and layouts out by store. And it just so happens that the next store to be releasing their goodies for this major weekend is Scrap Matters! I am on 2 CT's who design for that store - Amber of Stolen Moments and Wendy of WM[squared] Designs!

Happy Pre-Pre-Pre DSD!!

So it appears that a few of my Creative Teams have kicked the DSD festivities off early!! I was browsing the stores and saw their kits and grab bags were already available! And instead of procrastinate and wait til the last minute to post this, I wanted to get it done early so I can play this weekend in all of the fun contests and events planned!
So on to the new goodies that are such a steal this weekend!!

First up is a collab at Dreamland Digital Designs. This kit is PACKED full of beautiful elements and gorgeous papers.

And my layout using a picture of Alahna last winter:

Lyndsay Riches at Scrap Orchard has 2 new releases for this weekend! The first she titled, Kissing Frogs, and is absolutely adorable!

A layout of Ryan and I kissing (I know, ewwww, groossss! hehe!):

Her second release for the weekend is a re-release of her submission in the SYTYCD contest, titled Mr. Kite:

I scrapped Alahna's first Carousel Ride with this bright and fun kit!

And the last release for today is from Kimi's Kreations at Go Digital Scrapbooking. She created a jam-packed grab bag full of fun stuff! Check it out by clicking on this preview:

And my layout using 3 of the items from this grab bag:

Please check back tomorrow for some other fabulous new stuff!!

Almost a week late, but better late than never - Right??

With all the upcoming events and such this weekend for DSD (Digital Scrapbooking Day, for my non-scrapper friends!) I haven't had a chance to post last weeks kits and layouts. I have been SUPER busy with some great products that are coming out this won't want to miss my Saturday post for all the info!!

So Val of geniaBeana Scraps released Some Enchanted Evening this week for the Color Play over at Elemental Scraps. You can't buy the entire kit as a whole, but it is available to purchase separately as papers, elements, alpha, or glitter. Here's the preview:

And my layout of Alahna and her big ol' wide baby eyes!

Last week I got to play with my newest CT's kit, Boo Bash, by Wendy of WM [squared] Designs.

I did a layout of Alahna's Halloween costume this year!! I couldn't resist with these colors!

My last 2 layouts to share are from Wendy's latest Template Pack, titled "Fabulously Negative." The preview is linked to her store at Scrap Matters.

The first layout I did with the template pack used her kit, Beach Bum. It was PERFECT for Alahna's Hawaii pictures at the beach!

And my second layout using the templates also used Boo Bash:

I think I may be caught up in blogging for now. I have a TON to share this weekend!! Some major fun, beautiful, amazing, and CHEAP stuff to share!!! Hope you have a great few days and I will be back on DSD!!!
