A Digi Page & Paper as well !!!

Happy Thursday everyone !!! Today I have a mish mash of things to show you, so lets get started:

I just love my little man !!! He is truly the apple of my eye and he's growing up so quickly !!! Its only a month until he starts school....boy will that day be a cry fest for me !!! Anyways onto the page !!!

This one uses a kit that I grabbed from a blog train. What is a blog train you ask?? Well you have to go to several blogs around the world wide web and pick up pieces to a kit before you have an entire kit. This one is called My Favorite Guy....I love the colours in it !!!

Now these next two pages are paper pages for the girls school albums. Yes, sometimes I do still paper scrap, just not as much as I did before and just not as much as I would like.

These are from the girls school year !!! One is grade six and the other is grade one.

Well, I really don't think that I will get to finishing my next digi scrappin page to show you tomorrow, because my sister & her kids are coming today for a play date & picnic in the park. So I may or may not have something new for you for tomorrow !!! Life is just getting in the way of my scrappin right now, which is OK.....cuz I love it !!!

Have a great rest of your day,

Midway Kit !!!

Morning everyone !!!

Today, I want to show you another awesome kit that Lyndie from Gone Scrappin Designs released just last week. This is a great one if you go to midways and hometown festivals. I personally thought it would be a struggle for me to scrap with this kit - it is very bright and just not my usual style. BUT.....I thought that I should try it, you know go outside my comfort zone so I dug way into my pictures - going back to 2004 & 2005 to make some layouts!!!

This kit is called MIDWAY and if you click on the preview you will be taken to the store at Designs in Digital to purchase it !!

And now these are my layouts for this kit, hope you find some inspiration from them. Sometimes its OK to go outside your comfort zone !!!

And this one is my favorite !!! And it isn't even fair or mid-way related !!!

Thanks for stopping into my little part of the web...even with my blog totally not finished yet, I am still going to "clean up" and do some more things to the side bar - I totally love that you guys come to visit me everyday !!!

Bubblicious Continued....and throw in some soccer with that !!!

As I promised yesterday, I have another layout from this awesome kit by GONE SCRAPPIN DESIGNS called BUBBLICIOUS !!!

Check out this 2-page spread of my middle daughter, Mia's recent 7th Birthday !!! It was a Hannah Montanna Themed party - I even made a guitar cake for her, so I thought that this kit fit very well !!!

I love the brackets with the black around them the most from this kit...well everything in it is awesome, but I really, really like those!!! And doesn't that number seven in the grey really nicely complement these colours?? Anyways, I may be biased, but you really should check it out.

Today I will also leave you with another page - this one doesn't use any kit from Gone Scrappin Designs, it actually just uses some miscellaneous colours/papers that I have no idea where I got them from. This is a page about Noah's soccer this year - its his first year and he is loving it !!! Right after I made this layout for him, he scored his first goal and my darn batteries had just died on the camera, so I didn't even get a photo of it !!! Oh well, I am sure there will be many more this year....check out this double page spread.

That big picture of Noah on the side (beside/under the title) was from a photo and I extracted just him from the picture and pasted it for the background on this page!!! Maybe some day, if I get brave enough and better at it....I will try to do some video tutorials on how to do this with Photoshop. I use Photoshop Elements 7.0 and I love it !!!

Well I should be off and I will be back tomorrow with some more items for you to share !!! Have a great day !!!

Gone Scrappin Creative Team

I am still part of an awesome CREATIVE TEAM for Gone Scrappin Designs and that gives me the opportunity to work with awesome new digital kits before they even hit the stores. If you have never done this before you should try it out !!! Check out forums on different websites to see any calls for new creative team members and then don't be shy, just send in your name and some never know what might happen. I was hesitant at first, but I am so glad that I did.

Lyndie & Nikki from Gone Scrappin Designs are just awesome to work with as well !!! They come up with some of the cutest kits. Usually they design kits seperately from one another, but on the rare occassion they come together to make some great this one.

This kit is called BUBBLICIOUS - click on the underlined word to head to the store to pick up this great kit.

This is such a nice girly kit, but I wanted to show that it just wasn't for girls. I usually scrap double page spreads - even when I paper scrap, I mostly do double page spreads. I find that I struggle when I do just a single page, but that is what I wanted to do with this one....check out my son !!! He loves the swing when we go to the park, but he will never sit on the swing properly - I think its a little fear in him because his sister has fallen out of the swing and gotten hurt.

Now, doesn't this look familar....yes I also used this gorgeous kit for my new blog design !!! Isn't that cool !!! Well I am off and hope to be back tomorrow with more to share with this awesome kit !!!
