First up is these super fun doodle borders by SuzyQ Scraps, called Oopsie-Doodle: Borders 1:

Both can be found on sale at Scrap Orchard by clicking the above previews. Here is my layout using both the borders and the kit:

Next up is an Easter kit from Wendy of WM [Squared] Designs. You can find Happy Easter at Scrap Matters, and on sale today!

And then check these out!! Wendy did a template pack inspired by none-other than ME! So fun, eh? They are titled, Be Inspired: Niki, and are also on sale at Scrap Matters.

I did a layout using both the Easter kit and the Template Pack:

Stolen Moments is also releasing a template pack today, based on fellow CT member Kim's layouts. Check out Scraps By Number: Just Call Me Kim:

I used the kit Ten Tiny Toes (also by Stolen Moments) along with this template pack to create this fun belly progression layout:

Next up is a beautiful kit by geniaBeana Scraps of Elemental Scraps titled, A Quiet Moment:

I stepped out of my scrapping comfort zone a bit to create this layout, and very pleased with how it turned out!

The last thing I wanted to share with you was actually a release from last week. Another template pack from WM [Squared] Designs called, Be Inspired: Tanya.

I used one of my favorite kits from Wendy called Beach Bum, along with the templates to create this layout:

Now what are you waiting for? Go check it all out and buy something in the stores!!!!

Easter Kits Galore!

Happy Spring, gorgeous weather and the Easter holiday! I just love this time of year! It is always so busy, but so much fun too!
Ready to see the most gorgeous Easter kits out there right now??! I had the privilege of working with the 3 most beautiful kits this week!

First up is the collab Easter Morning by Stolen Moments and Man In The Moon Designs, found at Scrap Matters:

Here is my layout using this kit:

Next up is another collab kit by SuzyQ Scraps and Ziggle Designs titled Bunny Imposters. This super fun kit is found exclusively at Scrap Orchard, and has THE cutest hand drawn character elements!! Definitely a must-have for your scrapping collection!
Another layout of mine using the same pictures from last Easter. Here is a scared Alahna sitting on the Easter Bunny's lap!

The final Easter kit I want to share with you is by Lyndsay Riches of Scrap Orchard. I just LOVE these colors and the elements are perfect for both Spring and Easter photos. Check out Spring Flings & Easter Things:

I used photos of Alahna dying Easter Eggs last year, with this beautiful kit!

I had a super busy week, yet again, (does it ever slow down?) and was only able to scrap with one more new release. Wendy of WM [Squared] Designs released these fun templates titled Be Inspired - Melody. You can find them at Scrap Matters!

Along with the above templates, I used one of her older kits titled Shabby Chic. I just love this picture of Alahna and I! My little girl:

I really hope to have more scrapping time this week....I was in the hospital last week for Pre-Term Labor (nothing new to me, I've been there done that with Alahna) and so have been put on restricted activity. Needless to say, I will be doing less and hoping to scrap more!
Have a great week and see you back next weekend!!

This Weeks New Releases

Like I had mentioned in my last blog post, I didn't have much scrapping time this week due to being busy with my daughter's birthday extravaganza! But I was able to play with a few fun kits that I want to share with you!
First up is a collab between Lyndsay Riches and Ziggle Designs of Scrap Orchard, titled Squeaky Clean:

I had really wanted to use this kit more than once, but the week just got away from me! I LOVE the colors and beautiful elements in it - and just had to scrap Alahna's first bath:

The next kit I was able to play with this week was Serendipity from SuzyQ Scraps, also found at Scrap Orchard:

She also released this co-ordinating or extra alpha titled Lucky You:

My layout uses both the kit and the Alpha, and is of Alahna's very first St. Patty's Day!

The last kit I used was from Captivated Visions titled Bellis Perennis. She has it available at her various shops, but I linked it to her Elemental Scraps store:

I thought this kit was perfect for pictures of Alahna last Spring playing in her sandbox:

I have one more kit to post tomorrow - but after that, I will MIA for a few days while family is in town and we are celebrating my baby turning 3! Hope you have a great weekend!!

To catch you up, here are last week's releases from Wendy of WM [Squared] Designs over at Scrap Matters. First up is a collab with Simply.Scraps titled Where The Heart Is:

My layout of my little family about a year and a half ago:

Also this St. Patrick's Day inspired kit titled Shamrocks:

Here is my layout using both the templates and the kit of Alahna at last St. Patty's Day:

Scrap Orchard's Fresh Fruit:

It's Thursday, and do you know what that means? New release day at Scrap Orchard! I had the privilege to work with 2 of the Fresh Fruit releases today! First up is a beautiful kit from Lyndsay Riches, called A Cherry On Top:

I just love all of Lyndsay's drawn elements! She has such a unique style that is absolutely beautiful! I scrapped a few pictures of Alahna getting messy with a chocolate treat:

The next kit I was able to play with is a collab between SuzyQ Scraps and Kristin Aagard, titled Vroom Zoom Chugga Choo:

This kit has Suzy's hand drawn elements combined with Kristin's cartoony ones, to create a beautiful must-have kit! I scrapped Alahna's very first road trip to Dinkey Creek when she was just 4 months old:

I hope you check out these fabulous new releases! And don't forget to check back tomorrow....a little birdy told me I might be a part of a blog train, or something like that! Have a good night!
