Dogs, bees and naughty children

Hello everyone! Fall is definitely in the air here and I wish it would stay forever! I love the crisp cool mornings, the warm sun during the day and the way the light falls between the trees in the early evening. My favorite time.

Sarah Barber Design has PeeWee, the joy of motherhood, out this week. Poking fun at what it is really like to be a mom. It can be a challenge! Sarah's kit is available at Digiridoo Scraps.

Sarah also has Note It and Simply Tagged out along with two new alphabets, Alpha Time v.1 and v.2.

Lou at LouCee's Creations is a huge dog lover, in fact, is a dog groomer, and has finally come out with her very own dog themed kit called Dandy Dogs. You can find this kit at both Digiridoo Scraps and Digital Scrap Obsession. Lou is also giving you a freebie every day on her blog that is up for only one day so don't miss them!

Honey Bee is Mel Hains Designs new kit. Filled with beautiful honey yellows this kit comes with adorable little flying bears. You can find it this week at Scrap That Idea on sale for 25% off.

Photography on this layout was used with permission by Kriech-Higdon Photography - what a cutie!

Using another one of Artsy Indaba's templates and Fall Is Coming by Lisete Scrap I did this layout of my eldest granddaughter - she is growing so fast and is so beautiful. This fall kit worked perfectly with the colors in the photo!
You can find both the templates and the kit at Digiridoo Scraps!

Hope you all have a wonderful Saturday!

Just playing around with some altered art. The first one is for the 7 Deadly Sin Challenge at Deviant Scrap. This month is Vanity.

Doing some experimentation with brushes, textures and light - very fun!

Back to playing...

If I Must...

I don't know why but I am just not in the mood to blog lately but I need to - so here is my sad effort.

Lou from LouCee's Creations has a lovely CU grab bag out at Digiridoo Scraps and also in her store at Digital Scrap Obsessions. This is a must have for all you designers!

Serene by RW has Everything Nice out over at Inspiration Lane. I love the playful colors in this kit!

TumbleFish Studio is celebrating her 2 year blogversary this week and her blog is filled with contests and wonderful prizes. One of her challenges was to create a piece using only grayscale. I happen to love black and white or very monotone pieces so this was a fun one for me - also it seemed to fit so perfectly with a Halloween theme. Marsha is an amazing mixed media artist and a wonderful inspiration. Congrats Marsha - here is to many more years!!!!

Last weekend my eldest granddaughter and I did a little mini photo shoot. She is growing up so fast and is such a beauty. Here are some layouts I did.

The first one is done using Artsy Indaba's new templates and DigiDesigns by Wilma Quiet Time kit. Both at Digiridoo.

This next was was created using Lisete Scraps Green Soul kit. Such a lovely kit and she has some clusters that are to die for!!

I have also done a little layout for The Artisan Notebook Template Challenge using Fiddle Dee Dee's amazing template. Head over to The Artisan Notebook and participate in this challenge. Cheryl's templates are always so much fun to use!

I used September's Collab at Digiridoo Scraps Tree Hugger for this layout. A huge kit filled with the fabulous work from the Digiridoo designers which you will get free with any purchase through September 30, 2010 at Digiridoo. Thanks to my friend in Indiana for the delightful photo of her little daughter - who also is growing up too fast!!! What a beauty.

Hope you all have a glorious weekend!

Designers at Digiridoo Scraps

Forgot a couple of kits at Digiridoo Scraps

Golden Oldies is by Studio4 Designworks. Don't you just love the colors and the totally retro feel to this kit. The car is owned by a friend of mine and really reminds me of my high school days (not that I am that old but I think he had a car similar to this when we were in high school - oh the memories!)

Marshmella Designs has a beautiful kit called Secrets also at Digiridoo Scraps. The doodles in this kit are just adorable!

I think I am done now ... LOL!

Memories of Old and Lemon Fresh

Two fabulous kits up today

LouCee from LouCee's Creations has been hard at work not only designing but planning a BIG 18th birthday for her daughter. Lou has a charming vintage style kit on sale at both Digiridoo Scraps and Digital Scrap Obsession called Memories of Old. Lovely soft colors perfect for those heritage layouts!

Sarah Barber Design has designed a luscious kit called Lemon Fresh. Oh the yellows and blues in this kit are so gorgeous!
You can find it over at Digiridoo Scraps. Photos are my little granddaughter on her second birthday - she decided to wear everything she received that day as a present in addition to what she came in. What a personality this one has!

Have a wonderful week!
