Family Week

At my daughter's daycare, the next couple of weeks they will be discussing family.
I put these together for her. I even ordered some extra prints to start a mini album for her grandparents.
These were made using various kits- some obtained from my CT duties and some purchased.

Thanks for looking!
If you would like to know the kits, I used just ask and I will tell. :-)
I should have all the credits updated by the weekend.

Ending of a Great Weekend

Hope everyone had a great weekend! I enjoyed mine...even though I missed being able to browse the internet. I have a few things to show you before I head off to dreamland. It is almost midnight here. Ugh! I do not like Mondays at!!

First...ScrapMatters Collaboration by the talented design team has been released. Until September the 16th, the kit is 50% off..after the 16th, it will be revealed and available for purchase at the regular price. I will say that it is a beautiful kit...and not just because I am on the creative team. I love the fall and this is definitely a kit I would grab for my stash for those fall photos. Here is a layout I have created using the kit....

On my page, I blended two of the background papers for the Saturday Special challenge at ScrapMatters. You can check out the challenge here, which gives a short tutorial on blending papers. We would love to see what you create using the challenge instructions. The challenge layouts are due at the end of this month and you earn points towards a store coupon. The more challenges you complete the better. :)

This next gorgeous autumn bundle is Second Spring by Stolen Moments and Captivated Visions. It is fully of gorgeous goodies! I fell in love with it time I saw it...these designing ladies make a fab team. Here's my page:

My favorite part of this kit was the papers..they were gorgeous all by themselves! I think I used as many of them as I could on this one page. I used to be afraid to play with patterns together...but every now and then I will and it turns quite well (to me anyway...LoL!!!).  

My next page was created using a gorgeous kit by Scooty's Designs and Designs by Anita. I love their clean, neat design style and this kit is too darling for words. A Drift in Dreams is available @ Memory Scraps and Two Little Pixels...and here is my page...

Before I go, this next page has to be one of my favorites. For two reasons...I am not very good with templates but I love to look at them for when I saw these two talented ladies of Berry Sweet Designs and Busy Bee Designs created a collaborative set...I knew I had to try! The set is called Harvesting Memories available at Memory Scraps. I used two kits by Lauraskathi: Erica and Laney, which are both on sale right now for $2.00 each (SN: her entire store is on sale...a must see!!)'s my page:

That's all for now...thanks so much for looking!!!

Free Day!!

For those who celebrate, hope you are enjoying the holiday! I know I am enjoying this free day off from work. Maybe I will have time to get my mind together. The past few weeks have been a little crazy for me but things are tapering off and finally getting back to normal. I have a few pages to share with you today.

This first page was done for a template challenge. I love cut-outs so I knew I had to give it a try. The kit I used is "Forever and Always" by Geek Chic Scraps over at Gotta Pixel. This is the most darling kit. I usually don't like overly girly kits but the papers are so well made and colored and the elements are perfect accents...I really enjoyed playing with this kit.

Then over at ScrapMatters, I had to play along in the "In Living Color" challenge. Great color choices for this month. I used "Love Blooms" by Jennifer Barrette. 

And for those that are "journaling-challenged" as I am...there is a great chance to score some points towards store purchases and to get in the groove of journaling more. All memories may not have photos...does not meant they should not be scrapped and preserved. Memory Scraps has a monthly journaling challenge and this time the theme is up to you as long as your page is 70% journaling. For my page I used Father and Son by Designs by Anita.

Over the past week, some fabulous designers have joined the team at Memory of them being : Berry Sweet Designs. Check out her latest kit, Purple Passion, and template set, Loads of Paper

And..if I were you...I would go check out her store because she is giving away one of her amazing templates for you to try!

Mye De Leon has been quite busy these days-she has recently released two amazing collaborations. 
The first is Waiting for the Sunshine with eNKay Design, available here and here.

Layout from me using this kit.......

Then Mye has teamed up with Connie Prince to create another wonderful Digi-Survival-Stash, available here and here.

Here's a page I have made....

And the last page I have to show was created with one of the last kits that will released at Songbird Avenue, Inc. The site will be closing at the end of this month. Everyday Moments was created by ErinInk, a designer from Memory Scraps. Gorgeous kit and definitely a must have. This is a charity kit and can be purchased here

Here is a layout I have created.....

Thank you so much for looking!! Since you made it all the way down here :-)... I have a little something to share...enjoy!!
