Gallery Standout

While the grandbaby is still sleeping and it is still dark and cold outside, I did two layouts using the gorgeous photos of McKenna
The one with the white background was picked for Gallery Standout at Digishop Talk - what a great way to start the day!

Snowflakes and a Starry Starry Night

Charlie has some lovely snowflakes in the DSO store. Perfect for this Christmas season and winter weather. And their on sale!

Mel has an adorable kit called Starry Starry Night available. I love the vintage feel to the papers in this kit - It reminded me of old Christmas cards. You can buy this kit in a bundle for $5.00 or each part separately for $1.00. There are some Christmas tags included that are so cute! Perfect for all those Christmas layouts.

Off to do a little shopping.

Charlie's back from her holiday and Mel's Store at Scrap that Idea is back on-line. The planets are aligned and life is good.

Mel has a new kit in the store. I do, I do, I do is a gorgeous kit to scrap any wedding photos but also can be used for so much more. Beautiful soft colors. You can pick it up at Scrap that Idea as a bundle which includes a brag book, alphabets in gold and silver and some adorable tags for $5.00 - what a deal! Or you can purchase each part separately.

Here is my layout - what a gorgeous couple!

Mel also has her monthly freebie on her blog. It is called Flirty and is so pretty. Pick up Week One. Here is a sneak peak with my layout. I love the papers in this kit!

Just a few more weeks and there shall be another little granddaughter in our family - maybe an early Christmas present??

Karen at Karen Martella Photography has done another incredible job with some photos of my family. Karen captured the joy and the beauty of my two little granddaughters. Thank you so much Karen.

Of course I couldn't resist a layout with one of these gorgeous photos!

OMG It's December

This is so depressing that another month has gone by already and it's December (can I crawl back under the covers and pretend it is still June???).

While Ms. Charlie is on holiday with her family somewhere on the Australian coast her wonderful CT team is holding down the fort for her and I know she will be so proud of us for remembering to blog for her!!!!!

First of all, there is a brand new grab bag over at Digivault. Eight fabulous CU tools and products all in ONE BIG GRAB BAG. That's ONLY $1 per product! (These are NOT Christmas themed!)

Second, our own Charlie is Designer of the Month at DSO. They couldn't have made a better choice because Charlie's designs are amazing. Her entire store is on special at DSO and DSV at 50% off the entire month of December (this includes Commercial Use). Charlie has also come up with a beautiful BRAND NEW Super Glitter Bundle (CU/PU/S4H/S4O) that contains 30 glitter styles and 30 jpegs, for only $2!!!!!!! (normally $7) Can't beat that!

And just for the fun of it - check out Charlie's new blog look. It is gorgeous! Hope you are having a blast Charlie!
