Autumn Breeze

Fall is here - I can smell it in the air. I love fall, the light, and the colors are all so soothing to me. Mel Hains has a stunning new kit out called Autumn Breeze.

It is in the Scrap That Idea Store for $3.00 this week. Gorgeous kit for all those beautiful fall photos and memories.

This layout I did for the Simplicity Challenge on Vera Lim's blog. Focus was on the photo and a very simple layout. I used Vera's Textures 2 to edit the photo, paper from her Being with You kit and a Little Magic Volume 4 on the side. I didn't take the photo but I think it is a beautiful shot!!!

Hope everyone has a wonderful week! Fall tends to make me a little lazy so I may just sit here all day and scrap!!!

Up, Up and Away

Charlie’s Digiscraps has a “boy” inspired kit in store today. Boy layouts are rough for me as my boy is 28 and there is no hope in sight for any boy grandchildren...yet anyway, so I borrow adorable Evan from my friend, Emily (a newly converted digital scrapper herself!) and the great photos are taken by her husband. Thanks guys!

Up Up and Away is a fun kit with hues of blue, green and yellow.

Lovely rich textures with cardstock, acrylic and painted textures too!

Perfect to scrap those big and little men in your life.

Though any occasion can be scrapped with this kit!

Matches perfectly with the coordinating Quickpages(also in store).

This kit has 12 textured papers and 36 elements

This kit is on SALE $4.50 $3.15 – 30 % off for ONE WEEK ONLY

You can get the adorable alpha free on Charlie's blog.
And entire kit at DSO including these darling quick pages!

This weekend my little GD (age 5) was entered in a art show to help raise money for a young child with cancer. There were a lot of amazing pictures, all done by children. Each piece was for sale and all the money went to help this young child and her family...what a wonderful thing for young children to participate in! What a great job she did!

My daughter and her husband also had an anniversary this weekend -it's been a tough year but they have gotten through it and remained a strong couple and parents through it all. Happy Anniversary guys!

Here's a photo from their wedding - with a lot of PS actions used on it. I love the vintage look of it.

Have a great week!

Christmas in September

I bet you are thinking perhaps I have lost my mind (and perhaps I have) but Charlie has a great little Christmas sampler to start you thinking about the upcoming holiday months. It is just adorable.

15 Christmas inspired Commercial Use items at the bargain price of $1.50!

Checked meticulously by the vaults’ Quality Check team and certified Stray and jaggy FREE!

This bag is available at the Digiscrap Vault HERE for a LIMITED TIME only!

You can climb into Santa's bag and pick it up here.

Mel has a new kit out called Yum Yum Bubble Gum - stunning pastels in this kit. It is in the store now at Scrap That Idea.

The photo is a shot of my daughter when she was just a little over 1 and myself - I have always loved this photo and now it has a home in this layout. Thanks Mel for the gorgeous kit!

I attended a little lecture about scrapbooking last night and was really inspired by the presentation. It really put into perspective for me how important scrapbooking is. Being a single Mom for a long time and having a bit of a struggle at times has always made me think that maybe I wasn't the best of mothers because I had to work so hard to keep our life going. But when I first started scraping, looking through old pictures and at all the fun times we had as a family, I know now that even though times were tough, we had a lot of fun as a family, laughed a lot, cried a lot but we are a family and through the years and in the years to come, we will have those memories documented. That is what is important because in the end, those memories, pictures and our journaling will be what we have left of each other.

Now, I just have to work on my journaling and not just creating a pretty page...
