Just A Boy

Hi everyone! Welcome to the last day of summer, when the autumnal equinox brings us into fall. It's also new release day at The Digichick, so let's get to it, shall we?

I generally love the products of et designs, so I was excited to work with her latest release, a collection called Just A Boy:

It's a good thing I have a couple of little nephews, as this photo of my niece and her son were perfect for scrapping:


You can check out the collection HERE, and remember, if you don't need the whole thing, you can grab individual portions. Have a good weekend, and make sure you come back and see me soon!

September Garden

Hi everyone! Just popping in here on this beautiful weekend afternoon to show you a little bit of the gorgeousness that is this month's edition of the quarterly Hatchery collection at The Digichick. I worked with some elements and papers by et designs called September Garden:

I loved the abstract feel of this collection, and used it to scrap this photo that I took a couple of autumns ago of some dried, crusty leaves:


You can check out the entire Hatchery collection HERE; everything is broken up into packs that you can mix and match as needed. The full bundle of September Garden is HERE, but rest assured you can grab individual packs just like I did!

In my last post I mentioned the Master of Scrap competition that was being held over at Scrapaneers. The event is over, and I'm sad to say that I (along with 70+ other contestants) didn't win any of the big prizes, but I do have a lovely collection of layouts to show for it. When I get a minute I'll post them all here for you to see, so make sure you come back and see me soon!

Back To School!

Hi all! Happy Labor Day, the unofficial end to the summer season here in Michigan. It also coincides with the beginning of a new month, which means a new round of challenges at The Digichick. This month I'm hosting a Font Challenge, with a back-to-school theme:

Here's a closer look at the example layout I created, featuring a photo of my younger sister from loonnngg ago:


I used the main kit from the brand-new collection from Kimeric Kreations, appropriately titled Back To School:

You can check out the kit HERE and join me in the challenge this month HERE.

Speaking of challenges, I just wrapped up my participation in the month-long Master of Scrap contest being held over at Scrapaneers. When things settle down I'll show you the pages I did for the competiton, so make sure you come back and see me soon!

Indulgence

Hi everyone! How are things? I know it's a busy time of year, as back-to-school is in swing for so many of us. (PS. Come back in a week to see how I'm embracing that!). I've been busy in other ways, as I've been competing in the Master Of Scrap competition over at Scrapaneers. So far, none of my layouts have been chosen as a weekly winner, but with 150+ entries each week, I can't complain.

This week my entry in the Traditionalist category utilized a new release from Alexis Design Studio called Indulgence:

The colors and gorgeous elements reminded me of the colors that were part of my wedding, so that's what I scrapped about:


The kit can be found HERE, and there are also extra papers, stamps, and goodies you can grab up too as part of a valued collection.  Check it out, and make sure you come back and see me soon!

Purrfection

Hi all! How is your August going? Mine has stayed pretty busy, so I almost didn't have time to do a layout this week for The Digichick; but then what pops into the store at the last minute but this fun tribute to feline fun called Purrfection by Aimee Harrison Designs:

http://www.thedigichick.com/shop/Purrfection-Collection.html

It just so happens that I have not scrapped any photos yet of the new king of our castle, so I didn't let this chance get by me:


In case you can't read the little spot of journaling, rest assured that this little man is indeed the god of Mischief!  Check out the collection HERE, enjoy the rest of your weekend, and make sure you come back and see me soon!

Happy Birthday!

...to me! It's my birthday today, and I was planning on spending some time outdoors, but Mother Nature decided to send some thunderstorms our way today. So here I am, in the cool air conditioning, cruising through digiscrap land. Look at what's up!

The biggest news I have is that The Digichick is also celebrating a birthday, its 12th! From now through Aug 7th there are sales in the shop and fun games in the forum (with some pretty neat prizes, if I might say so). I'm hosting a Scavenger Hunt:

I hope you'll stop by and check things out...the fun goes through Monday evening! Part of the festivities is also the release of the Design Team's latest collab, called Celebrate!:

http://www.thedigichick.com/shop/Celebrate-A-TDC-Designer-collab.html

Isn't it great? You can pick it up HERE during the weekend while it's on sale. I used a template and parts of the rest of the collab to do this layout for the font challenge at The Digichick:


Even with all the birthday fun I found time to grab a kit from this week's new regular releases to play with, a serene ode to summer by Palvinka Designs called Summer Remix:

http://www.thedigichick.com/shop/Summer-Remix.html

I decided to play with some blending modes a bit for this layout using one of my favorite photos from when my youngest daughter was little:


Last but not least, a new month brings a new round of challenges to the regular lineup at The Digichick. This month I'm taking it easy and hosting the Chatty Challenge, which is a perfect way to earn Chickie Points if you're short on scrapping time:

I hope you'll join me HERE for the Chatty Challenge! It runs all month, but the sooner you start, the easier it is to rack up your post count! Have a good weekend, and make sure you come back and see me soon!

Flight Zone

Hi all! July is coming to an end, and I've got my last CT layout of the month to show you. et designs has come up with an intriguing new collection called Flight Zone. Here's a peek at the main kit:

http://www.thedigichick.com/shop/Flight-Zone.html

While it is very clearly geared towards boys, I found it perfect for scrapping these photos of my best friend's first experience piloting a plane:


Check out the kit HERE this weekend while it's on sale, take a look at the rest of the collection too while you're at it, and make sure you come back and see me soon!
