New Scrapbook Layout

I have wanted to scrap this pick ever since I took it. It took a while to find the right kit, but after I saw Krystal Hartley's Lil Stinker kit I knew it would be perfect.

So what do you think? I am in love with it. :)

Is everyone ready for National Scrapbook Day, um, well I guess it's tomorrow now! I can't wait for all of the sales and games and contests that are going to be happening. Now if I can only find a sitter to keep me kid free that day..............what, a girl can dream, can't she?!

Lotsa Goodies!!

So after my husband nearly lost his hand in a farming accident and my dad had a heart attack, I am back with some new run papers and - wait, are you ready for this? - TADA the run alphas! I only did 2, and maybe will do more, but hey at least I have SOMETHING for ya after leading you on all this time, lol. There is actually a 3rd alpha in the zip. I didn't like the way it turned out so I wasn't going to include it, but forgot to delete it when I uploaded it. So, it's there if you want to use it, if not you won't hurt my feelings one bit! But there is only a-z, no numbers or symbols or anything. The others include full lowercase alpha, 0-9, plus some common symbols. I love how the orange felt one turned out. It would look awesome on some Halloween layouts! Sorry the preview stinks, hehe.

Speaking of Halloween, the kids carved their pumpkins last night. It was all fine and dandy until it came time to clean the guts out, lol. I don't think I've ever heard them complain so much! So I had them just get what they could and carve their faces and told them I would finish scraping them out today. I'm sure I will be complaining as much as they were by the time I'm finished too, lol. I'll have to post some pics later.

I have so many more add-ons for these kits. There is 44 more papers that I absolutely LOVE! Here is a preview:

That of course isn't all of them. I have some of the Skip alphas that I separated. I could only do 4 of them before my hard drive crashed. And Jody, if you happen to make it back here and wouldn't mind to send me my other alphas that you said you had I would appreciate it so much! Or anybody else who could send them. My email is Plus some elements. I will work on getting everything uploaded and previews posted so keep checking back! Here is the download link for the Run Papers. As always, if you use my stuff in any layouts please send them to me, I would love to see them and show them off on my blog!

My Scrap Shop September Design A Kit Challenge and a FREEBIE!

So, I know I still haven't produced the rest of the ABC alphas, lol. But don't worry, they are in the works. I had some family things going on, and then I sort of lost my desire to create for a while. But I am out of my slump now - YAY!! And it came at the perfect time too. Because I came across a challenge at My Scrap Shop and it was the September Design A Kit challenge. I loved the colors that were chosen for the challenge, and it was a boy theme. So I thought hey, since I have two boys, why not give it a whirl. So I did and I had an absolutely blast doing it! So hopefully the slump is gone forever, and I already have some color combos in mind for my next mini-kit. But in the meantime, I WILL get those ABC alphas done already! Lol. Here is the preview for my portion of the challenge:

Sorry it's not bigger, and sorry the preview sucks! Lol, I wasn't sure how to do it so I just winged it. There are 6 papers, lots of chipboard elements, some puffy stickers (made with MegaDoodle's AWESOME transparent sticker action), a rub-on snail, some felt shapes, some charms with chains, and three different alphas. My favorite is that puffy snail sticker. I absolutely LOVE it. Oh, and the puffy house sticker, it looks like it was made with glue. Totally awesome. I love how this kit turned out. Hopefully the future ones are just as good - if not better! And I can't wait to see what the colors will be for the October kit. So keep checking back, I have a feeling the designer within me has found it's way out again! Ok I'll go ahead and shut up already and give you the download link, hehe.

Until next time!
