Hi all! It's the middle of January but you wouldn't know it by looking out the window last night.  We had 3 solid hours of thunderstorms. In Michigan. In January. Of course, we did just have 6 inches of snow two days ago, so maybe that's not too far off the weather mark for our state. Anyways, I'm here today to show you the new release I worked with from The Digichick. Silvia Romeo is joining the design team this week, and I just had to grab this fun little number called Bath Time Fun:

It caught my eye because I had just come across these photos of a little nephew of mine in my Facebook feed:


The template is this month's challenge freebie from Fiddle Dee Dee Designs. Bath Time Fun, as well as the rest of Silvia Romeo's shop, is on sale HERE through the weekend, so check it out, and make sure you come back and see me soon!

Celebrate!

Hi all! We have a new little member of our extended family, a sweet little guy born on New Years' Eve:


The products I used to commemorate his arrival are both new releases from Blue Heart Scraps, available this week at The Digichick; the Celebrate kit:

Happy New Year!

Hi all! Happiest of New Years! I know 2016 wasn't the best for many folks, and we are all looking to 2017 to be a better year! One thing that continues in a wonderful manner, though, is the awesome challenges at The Digichick. I'm here today to introduce you to the challenge I'm hosting this month, which is the Title It! Alpha Challenge, again! Sponsored, as always, by Alexis Design Studios, this month's challenge has us thinking outside the box a bit, as well as offering participants a chance to win a $5 gift certificate to the ADS shop:

The challenge runs all month, so please join me HERE, and also make sure you come back here to see me soon!

Year's End

Hi all! It's just about the end of 2016, and as such, this will be my last post of the year!  I have two new goodies I'd like to show you, both with a nod towards the upcoming New Year's holiday.

First is this themed grab bag from JoCee Designs and Laura's Scraps and Designs called Midnight's Kiss:

I thought this was perfect for a wintery photo I took a couple of weeks ago:


Digital Scrapbook Ingredients has a template set out, formed in the pocket style, called Recap:

I decided to use it along with DSI's kit Jolly Holiday to scrap a set of photos from last Christmas:


Make sure you check them out before the weekend ends, have a Happy and safe New Year, and make sure you come back and see me soon!

Magic Christmas

Hi all! Merry Christmas!  The big day is just 3 days away, can you believe it? I know everyone is busy, so I'm just going to take a quick minute here to show you what I worked with this week. It's a fabulous, HUGE collection from Vero called Magic Christmas:

http://www.thedigichick.com/shop/Magic-Christmas-Mega-Collection.html

I had a simple page in mind, so I grabbed just the main elements, papers, and the overlays (it's so nice when you can buy just the parts you need, even though getting the whole bundle is an excellent value!) and scrapped this unusual photo I took a couple of weeks ago:


The collection is on sale through the weekend, so check it out HERE, and have the Merriest of Christmases! Make sure you come back afterwards!

New This Week

Hi all! December is moving along,as evidenced by the winter storm warning we have in effect for tomorrow---anywhere from 3-9 inches of snow expected! Yikes! It's a good thing I've got my scrapping to keep me warm and cozy indoors!  Here's what I've been up to this week!

Digital Scrapbook Ingredients has a sweet holiday kit own, inspired by her own little boy's first Christmas, called My First Christmas:

http://www.sweetshoppedesigns.com/sweetshoppe/product.php?productid=35492&cat=876&page=2

I was inspired to scrap this cute photo of my little niece:


Over at The Digichick, I just had to grab this new release from Created by Jill called Without You:

http://www.thedigichick.com/shop/Without-You-Bundle-FWP.html

This bundle hit home to me, as we just lost our 18-year-old kitty to cancer the day I saw this kit, so I used it to scrap a memorial page about my Stinky Boo Boo Kitty:


Both these products are well worth your time to check out, so do that, stay warm, and make sure you come back and see me soon!

December Days

Hi all! It's December 1st today, and the countdown to Christmas is on! That's the theme for the products I have to show you today, but at closer look, it's more about a new month of challenges and the release of the quarterly Hatchery collection, all at The Digichick!

Once again I am hosting the Alpha Challenge at The Digichick, which encourages participants to get creative in using their alpha stash. A fun twist this month is that Alexis Design Studio, sponsor of the challenge, is offering up a FREE alpha to use in the challenge!

http://www.thedigichick.com/forums/showthread.php?64291-Title-It!-Alpha-Challenge-December-2016

Isn't it gorgeous? I used the alpha and a few pieces from Alexis Design Studio's bundle called A Cozy Christmas:

...and this is the layout that resulted:


I'd be thrilled if you joined me HERE any time during the month of December and had a go at the challenge!

Also new at The Digichick this month is the quarterly Hatchery collection, a combination of coloro-coordinated products from the design team that you can mix and match to your heart's content!  I grabbed a few pieces from Created by Jill's What I Remember Most offerings:

...and created another challenge layout, this one for the Word Challenge at The Digichick:


That's it for today! Enjoy your weekend, and make sure you come back and see me soon!
