Happy Friday!!

Happy Friday!! Here are those last few new releases I teased you with yesterday...
Wendy of WM [squared] Designs created another set of Project 365 Templates titled Day by Day V.2:

I got caught up with my Project 365 layouts this week by sneaking in a 2 pager with these fabulous templates:

Amber of Stolen Moments is releasing these fun cutting templates titled Paper Punches V.1:

I used these along with her Tenderly kit to create this sweet layout of Ryan with Alahna when we first brought her home from the hospital!

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!! xoxo

Sick week, rainy week....ready for some sun and health!

It's been another week of sickies in our house. Alahna has had this nasty cold that she just can't shake, Ryan seems to be getting sick again, and I have been busy taking care of both of them! On top of all that it has been raining again! I seriously can't wait for sunshine and health - bring on Summer!!!!!!

Before Summer comes Spring and all the holiday's that come with that. The one that most designers seem to be focused on the past few weeks is Valentines Day. Lyndsay Riches of Scrap Orchard has created the most original Valentines Kit titled Crosswords of Love:

I feel as I haven't scrapped Ryan and myself as much as I have in the past few weeks!! Here is the latest one I did of us:

geniaBeana of Elemental Scraps teamed up with JennCK to create this masculine Valentines Collab Kit titled Change of Heart:

Another layout of Ryan and I!

The last kit I want to share with you today is from Captivated Visions of Elemental Scraps titled Travelogue. It has fabulous elements and papers to scrap any and all travel photos you might have!

I have over 700 pictures of our trip to Europe in 2006, so I thought I would start at the beginning of our trip in Paris. Here is our first day at the Notre Dame:

I will be back soon with Friday's new releases!!

Friday's Releases....

on Monday! Life got in the way once again of posting this on time! We had "stuff" going on from last Wednesday through Sunday - from art classes to dance classes to playdates and Disney on Ice....and finally on Monday I have a free moment! But sadly from all that "stuff" my little girl got sick once again! Will it ever end? *sigh*

On to Friday's new releases at Scrap Matters. First up is a fabulous new template pack from Wendy of WM [squared] Designs:

And she also made my latest favorite bundle (which you can also buy each part separately if you would like) - Month by Month Pregnancy! I am pregnant now, so this kit will be my definite go-to for the next 5 months!

I combined both the templates and the Pregnancy Bundle to create my very first layout of the little baby in my tummy:

Next up is a gorgeous Valentines kit from Amber of Stolen Moments titled, Yummy Scrummy Love:

There is also a matching Alpha in the store titled Red Hot Alpha:

And these beautiful accent labels to match:

You can get all of these (among some other goodies such as a brag book, and hybrid goodies) in a bundle for a discounted price as well! Here is my layout (which BTW I have to toot my own horn and brag that I was honored with Layout Of The Week at Scrap Matters for this!):

And the last thing I want to show you is my Week 3 submission to Digiscrapaddicts Scrap Off contest. I really like how this one turned out and am hoping my score reflects that as well!

I have a busy scrapping week ahead of me.....I will be back with new goodies soon!!

Thursday Releases!

I told you I would be back today! I have 2 new kits to share with you today! First up is a collab kit by Captivated Visions and Michelle Batton Designs titled From Boy to Man and can be found at The DigiChick:

I obviously don't have any boys, so I tried to use the earthier side of this kit to create my layout of my girl:

The next kit is THE cutest Valentines-ey (is that a word?) Love Monster kit from SuzyQ Scraps! You have to check this one out!!!

Here's my layout of my little Love Monster when she was just 7 months old!

I will try to be back again tomorrow with yet another new release!

Collab Charity Kit Coming Soon

New Goodies

Sorry I am almost a week late with this...I haven't been feeling 100% the past few days. My hubby gave me his yucky cold!! Let me get straight to the goodies! First up is this amazing, jam-packed, Journey 365 kit by Wendy of WM [Squared] Designs. I will be using this over and over and over again throughout the year!

I also used her templates, Day by Day Version 1 for my first weeks layout for Journey 365:

And my week 1 layout:

The next goody I want to share is these fabulous Big Picture Templates from SuzyQ Scraps at Scrap Orchard:

My layout of my little family using a big picture:

Another Scrap Orchard goody is from Lyndsay Riches titled Love & Lullabies. This kit is perfect for all of those sleeping baby pictures you know you have in your stash!

I scrapped Alahna at only a few weeks old using this beautiful kit!

The next kit I want to show you is a beautiful Valentines Day kit by geniaBeana Scraps of Elemental Scraps titled, Love Sweet Love.

I really like how this layout turned out - Alahna's first Valentines Day, in 2008:

And the final layout I want to show you is my Week 2 submission to DSA's Scrap Off 2010. I did really well the first round but didn't do as well with this layout. I did receive some great CC though and hope to use it towards creating a better layout this week! Wish me luck!

I will be back tomorrow with some more new stuff! Have a great night!

Happy Friday fellow Scrappers! Ready for those other 3 goodies I have to share?? The first up is from SuzyQ Scraps from Scrap Orchard. It is the most fabulous, jam-packed Journey 365 Kit there is out there! If you are doing Journey 365 this year (which I know a lot of you are!) this is the perfect kit to get you through the year:

This week she also came out with a bunch of different date bits and Alpha tags in various colors to coordinate with the Journey 365 Kit. I played with the ones in "Rainbow" colors:

New Releases and a Contest Entry

Good evening!! I hope you are all having a fabulous week! I was a busy bee this week getting my scrapping groove back on! Wanna see a few of those new goodies I was able to work with?? First up is a new kit from my January and February guest spot for Captivated Visions. She is guesting at the Digichick this month. Check out her latest titled Spearmint Infusion:

I did 2 layouts with this kit - both of an impromptu photo shoot with Alahna in November of 2008:

The next kit is from geniaBeana Scraps and is part of January's Color Play for January. She titled it Hazy Shade of Winter. Check it out (linked to the Elements Pack in the store):

And my layout is of Alahna playing in the snow last January:

The last thing I wanted to share today is my submission to DigiScrapAddicts ScrapOff 2010 Contest. This is the first contest/competition I have ever entered! I am hoping it is good enough to win the judges eyes! What do you think?? It's linked to the gallery at DSA if you want to leave me some love!

I will be back tomorrow with 3 other new releases! (I told you I was busy this week!) Have a great night!
