Can't do a Christmas layout of one granddaughter and not do one of the other.

Background paper from Milla Wintersong Kit. Overlays from Natali Designs Winter Poetry. Leaf from Water LO Project - Xmas. Photo edges from French Laundry Photo Edges - Sande Krieger - 2Peas

Really that's all for tonight!

Christmas Angel

I am loving all these beautiful Christmas kits. Background paper from After 5 Designs - Artemia Kit. Overlays, stars, swirls from Natali Designs Winter Poetry Kit. Stars, clouds, red leaf from Water LO Project - Xmas and In the Gold Mine Kits.

All Aboard The Blog Train...

This is a couple of days late, but better late than never right? Vicki, Mel, Linda and Dawn have done a spectacular job with four wonderful Christmas kits! They will offering them every week for four weeks. Here is a preview and then go check out their blogs for downloads of "Walking in a Scrappy Wonderland.

Tomorrow is the official opening of "iscrapbook". Mel is one of the designers for this new site and it is going to be amazing. Here are three kits that Mel has designed for the grand opening along with my layouts.

The first one is called Chocolate Butterfly. Love the butterflies and the pinks are gorgeous!

This is called "Summer Melon" - these colors are so creamy and soft. Sorry I don't have a preview of this kit but here is my layout!

The last one has to be my favorite - I love this kit! It is called "Another Kind of Holiday" and I think it is just adorable.
I love the little Santa and the presents are so cute. The "big" Santa in the picture is also pretty cute!

Well, there you go...kindof wordy.

Another thanks to everyone for your lovely comments on my wordart - love the encouragement.

Winter Wordart

Thank you so much for all your lovely comments regarding my wordart. I didn't realize how fun it is to make something that others can use. If you do use the wordart, please send me a link to your layouts and I will be glad to post them on my blog! I would love to see how you use it.

I am thinking of doing a little winter wordart. Here is the first one.

You may download it here.

Off to work on some layouts!

Happy, happy weekend!

Mel's in the Spotlight

Mel is the spotlight designer this week at Snap and Scrap - what a great opportunity to go back and use some of her kits
again! For this layout I chose Julie's Frolicsome Fall Kit. Seems as though I am always drawn towards those fall colors.

Here is the wordart I made for this layout.

You can download it here.

The font I used is called Zapfino.

Go check out Charlie's new kit - It is called Fantasy Dreams. It is just gorgeous! I can't wait to give it a try.

I am giving this downloading a try with some of the wordart I have done.
Here is the first one to go with Charlie's Frogs and Mudcakes Kit. There is one in black and white and one with a little color.
Download the B&W one here.
Here is the download for the one in color.

This quote is from Carl Sandburg.


Thanks for looking at my wordart.

Just one more

OK, so there is a theme going on here....must be the month for fairies.
Everything in this kit from the charity kit "Artemia" from After 5 Designs. They are raising money to help a fellow layout designer whose small boy and husband were in an accident.

Small flying fairy from Sweet Blossom Designs Enchanted Forest Kit.

Wordart by me.

Really that's all for tonight...

Back again...

Here are a couple of layouts I finished this weekend.

First is the S&S creative team sketch challenge for this week. The designer is Marcee Fairchild and the kit is Leaf Pile. Again the children in these two layouts are borrowed with the permission, of course, of their mother. Cute aren't they?

You can get Marcee's kit at the Snap and Scrap Shoppe

Here is little Tinkerbelle - This is her first birthday - what an adorable photo!

Papers, flowers, toadstools, frame, fairy with dust from the free collab kit Enchanted Forest by Vicki - A Work In Progress and Sara - Sweet Blossom Design. String and word art from the collab charity kit at After 5 Designs - Artemia. Butterly from Lovely Lilac Kit from Shabby Miss Jen. Twig and rounded fairy dust from Vera Lim - You've Got a Friend and A Little Magic Fairies. Feather from Imagine by Fran - Reflets d'amethyste kit.

Hope everyone has a good week!


A little known fact is that I am obsessed with fonts, which is quite strange because I hate to journal on my layouts and hardly ever use any type of alphabets. Anyway, I thought I would try my hand at some wordart. Really quite fun and I am only beginning so be patient and if you want to use it, please do - just give me some credit!

It is a boy wordart, which I made for my own personal use to go with Charlie's new kit at Snap and Scrap called Frogs and Mudcakes.

You can find the kit in the shoppe

As soon as I can figure out how to download I will post the link (Thanks Charlie!)

Oh, by the way go over and wish Charlie Happy Birthday!!!!!!!

Snow Angel

In my never ending search for fabulous digital scrapbook kits, I ran across this absolutely stunning kit from Jofia Devoe and Milla
called Wintersong. OMG - it is just beautiful and I can't wait to use it again.

The picture is my sweet little granddaughter a couple of years ago - how I love this little girl!

Charlie has a new kit coming out which is adorable - I can only tell you it has something to do with small green slimy things. It is so cute. Check it out later this week at Snap and Scrap.

Have a good week!

Still Trying...

Still trying to play catch-up. Here are two layouts for Snap and Scrap. The first one is spotlighting one of my personal favorite
designers and CT buddy - Charlie Hudson. Honey Love is the name of the kit and that is just what it is - full of sweetness and love! It's a great kit for heritage layouts. I scanned this photo from some old photos my Mom had, it is actually of my Grandpa and his sister, Annie. I think it is so cute - love that hat she is wearing.

This next layout is made entirely from the Snap and Scrap Team Collaboration Kit for this month. It is called Tropical Breeze.
I love the bright summery colors and the elements are fabulous! Photos are from 1972 when I went to Hawaii with my college sorority - ahhhh to be young and carefree again!

I have two more layouts to get done - They are from Mel and are a bit of a secret - no peeks yet! Maybe I will even have the time to do a couple of layouts just for fun! It's been a better day - digital scraping helps!
