Isn't it gorgeous !!! My girls were so super excited to see this one, they claim that I scrap A LOT of their brother...I think it is just my style, not intentional at all, but I gravitate towards boys kits more. I did promise them a layout and I didn't fail them....take a look!!!

Be sure to click on the image to see the journalling if you want to read that more !!! I love the colours in this one and I knew it would work just perfect with these Sephia photos I had taken about a year ago !!!

Well I am off to start my busy day !!! Hope you have a good one !!

Bad Blogger !!! Catch up Time !!!

I can't believe that I haven't blogged since October 16th, that just totally shocked me, its not like I don't have anything to show you, its just that LIFE sometimes gets in the way. With having three very active kiddos and now being a single mom, I forget things more easily. Normally I sit down in the evenings on the nights before and type up something for all of you to see automatically the next day. I will admit that I have been in bed lately early...normally I am a night hawk - up until 11pm or even later, but these last few weeks has seen me in bed with the kiddies @ 9 or 9:30pm.

I hope that you have been collected your pieces to Nikki & Lyndie's Pumpkin Fest over at
Gone Scrappin Designs Blog because there are only a few days left in this celebration. Last Friday, I gave away a BRAGBOOK COLLECTION over there - the link is still up so check it out !!! (click on my preview to be wisked away!!!).

Then I need to tell you about some new kits that Christina with WimpyChompers Creations released this past week. Firstly is one called GOT YOU IN STITCHES.....I`m not a sewing person at all (insert your laughs now !!!) so this one is a cute one, but just not for me. (images are clickable to the store for your shopping convenience !!!)

Then Christina threw all of us CT Members for a loop and also released on the same day this adorable kit called MY LITTLE GOBBLER.

Isn`t this one a cutie !!! I JUST grabbed this one and have a couple of layouts swirling in my head, so I hope to share those with you before the weekend !!!

Lastly I wanted to share this awesome sale with you !! Christina hardly ever does this, so take advantage...If you have been admiring these cute kits from WimpyChompers Creations then now is the time to run on over to POLKA DOT PLUM and check out the selection - you won`t be disappointed !! (Click image to shoppe)

Well I have bombarded you with lots today, but I hope that is OK and you`ve enjoyed your visit. I have a double page layout ready to share with you for tomorrow !!! Have a great Tuesday!!!

I truly believe that this is one of my most favorite kits from Lyndie to-date. I just love the colours, the glittery elements & gorgeous alpha !!! Check out my layouts with this one. I recently went to my little sister's best friends wedding and got some great photos, so I decided to use those pictures to give the bride as a little gift.

New Release Day

Don't you love Wednesdays?? I do, its most famous for being "hump day", the downward spiral to the weekend. It is also new release day at most digi scrap stores.

Christina from Wimpy Chompers Creation is releasing a fabulous new kit called MAKIN A MESS today !!! Whether you just love cooking or making cookies for the holiday season this kit is perfect. It comes out October 14th (TODAY) and is 20% off for that day!

Available exclusively at Polka Dot Plum

I personally LOVE this one. My kids/sisters/aunts/cousins always have a special baking day in November for time together, plus some actual baking does go on, so I have TONS of pictures to scrap with this kit. In Canada here this weekend - it was our THANKSGIVING, plus it was my oldest daughter, Emily's 12th birthday so it was crazy, but I did manage to get one layout done with this kit and another in the works.

Thanks for stopping in to my little world and be sure to hop on over to snag this awesome kit for your own collection. I'll be back tomorrow with another of my layouts and some from the rest of the Creative Team. See you then!!

WimpyChompers Creations !!!

Happy Thursday Everyone !!!

Today I wanted to show off my lastest Digi Designer !! Christina from WimpyChompers Creations is just awesome. I have admired her kits from afar for awhile now, and thought that I would "try out" for a spot on her team - never imagining that I would be selected. I really still can't believe that I was selected.

I will be a guest on her team now until the end of the year, and I just picked up a kit from her store to play with, so I will have something of my own to show you soon, but I wanted to show you her latest kits that hit POLKADOT PLUM's STORE yesterday!!

First of all, is BOWLING BUDDIES (image clickable to the store)

And this is a layout from the creative team with this kit:

My kids have been bugging me to take them bowling, so I may just have to do that so I can use this adorable kit.

Next up is a collaboration with The Design Girl and WimpyChompers caled Shabby Elegance. This one is simply beautiful !! (image is clickable!!)

And this is a GORGEOUS layout using this kit - it is very girly, which I love because as my girls like to tell me, I tend to scrap their brother lots - I just think that I am drawn to boy kits more and I am going to challenge myself to scrap the girls more.

I hope you like something that you see today. Have a great day !!!

New Kits & New Creative Team !!!

Happy Monday everyone !!!

I am so excited to tell you about some stuff that has been going on with me !!! I have been so busy around the house...with three little ones it seems to be non-stop and that is why my posts are so sporatic.....but my kids who spit their time between me & their dad are back with him for two weeks again, which hopefully means less crazyness for me !!

First of all, I wanted to share with you a lovely kit from Lyndie @ Gone Scrappin Designs over at Designs in Digital called PUMPKIN PICKIN. It is actually a collaboration with another awesome designer, Scrappin Mint and they are the designing duo for October.

Image above should take you to the store directly if you want to buy this awesome kit !!! I am working on some layouts myself personally and will share those with you all on here shortly.

I hosted a RAK over the weekend - that stands for RANDOM ACT OF KINDNESS...which means that I am authorized to give out for FREE, two of these awesome kits to two very lucky indivduals. Be sure to check out the threads HERE or HERE and just by leaving a comment at either one or both (double your chances) you could win this kit. Be sure to pop on over there before 5pm EST today and enter to win!!

Now on to some other exciting news....I entered myself or applied for another creative team. I am always my own worst critic when it comes to my work, but I thought that I would give it a try....and I made it !!! It's only a guest spot from now to the end of the year, but I am very excited!!!

I will now get to work with Christina from Wimpychopers Creations !!

I am super excited because I have admired Christina's work/kit/designing for some time now....but now I get to work with them - wohoo me !!! So you will be seeing some layouts with that coming soon !!! If you would like to find out more about Wimpychompers Creations, the logo above should be clickable to be directed to the blog!!!

I also want to clarify that in no way does this mean that I am not working with Lyndie and Gone Scrappin Designs, because its not. I am very grateful to Lyndie for taking a chance on me with being a newbie and all and I ADORE her kits - so now I get to work with two fabulous designers and that just means that I have to scrap more - which is awesome !!!

This was a long post - thanks for bearing with me !!!
