Belated New Year's Resolution...

Ok, my new goal is to keep this bad boy updated.   Things in my life have been pretty crazy lately.  The biggest being closing on our first home this Friday.  It's been beyond chaotic trying to get things together for this huge transition.   I'm thrilled though and can't wait to set up my new office and begin a life of productivity!  :)

Some of the latest pages I made were for Mandy King's new GGI release "Fresh Fields".  The colors in this are amazing!!  I just love how my pages turned out.

You can find Fresh Fields in Mandy's store at Gotta Pixel:

Doodle Me Happy!! This kit is AWESOME!

I don't know about you, but every once in a while, a kit comes along that has so many wonderful goodies, and is so versatile, that you could use it over and over again for so many different pages.  That's what happened with Albums To Remember's new kit Doodle Me Happy.  The colors are a perfect combination for boy pages and girl pages.  And Barb did an amazing job packing this kit will all sorts of great embellishments and gorgeous papers!  There is also a FREEBIE to go along with this kit.

Here's a preview of this gorgeous kit:

Not only is the kit filled with goodness, but there are several add-ons that you can get to make this kit better than ever!  You'll save when buying the Bundle.

I loved this kit so much, that I made several pages for it.  Take a look:

There are many more fabulous CT pages on the product pages if you want to see more inspiration!

Sibling 4 Sale!

Sadly, I missed the release of Sibling 4 Sale by Mandy King.   I was celebrating my 5 year anniversary with my hubby.  So, I promised to step away from my computer for the weekend.   Now that I'm back, I'd love to tell you about Sibling 4 Sale.  It's a super fun and beautiful kit that has perfect fall colors.   It's great for those nostalgic photos, too!   I used it to scrap some old pix of me and my brother.

Here's a preview of the kit:

And here's what I did with it:

You can find Sibling 4 Sale! at both Gotta Pixel and My Memories Suite stores.   Buy the Bundle and Save!!!

Back to School....and a freebie!

It's back to school time.   Have you taken the obligatory back to school picture?   Did you take a few of them?   :)   I did!   I even whipped up a fun little cluster freebie for your pictures.

And here's what I did with it!

I used additional papers from Albums to Remember's 
All In A Day kit (yellow paper) and Art's and Crafts Kit (green paper)

Here is a preview for the School Add-On:

And while it's not school themed, the Arts & Crafts kit I think can work perfectly for any art work your kids may bring home from school.  There's also a set of clusters, too!


And now for the freebie...

 I used Albums to Remember Design's All In a Day School Add On and My Everything Templates by Connie Prince to do it! Click on the image below to access the freebie.

Youer than You - by Mandy King

A Shore Thing - New GGI (Gotta Grab It) at Gotta Pixel by Mandy King

If you haven't ever checked out the "Gotta Grab It" event at Gotta Pixel, you should do so this month!   Every month they have a color palette that each designer has to create a kit for.  They sell the embellishment packs, paper packs, cluster packs, alphas, journal cards, etc for $1 per pack for the first few days.  This month's colors are gorgeous!  Mandy has never done a beach themed kit before, so she decided this was the time to try it out.  And I can honestly say, she did an awesome job with it!  I just love how this all turned out.

You can find Mandy's pieces at her GP Store.

Here are the pages I made with this beautiful kit!

The GGI Sale will end on Tuesday, so hurry on over and grab these goodies!

I'm a bad bad bad blogger....

One day I'll be able to jump into this thing and really keep it up.  In the meantime, you get my sporadic posts.  However, if you want to keep up with my scrap pages or with my family updates you're welcome to friend me on Facebook or follow me on Pinterest.

Here's the latest and greatest from my little corner of the world.   We left California in March and moved back to the Chicagoland area.  We are in the burb's and I got a great new job with my company that will allow me to work from home, rarely travel and spend more time with my family.  Exactly what I was hoping for this year.

In addition, I joined another Creative Team.  So, now I'm scrapping for both Albums to Remember Designs and designs by Mandy King.   It's fantastic to be scrapping for these ladies, as I love love LOVE both of their styles.  So different, yet so much fun with each of them.  In fact, they even collaborated on a kit together.  (That's because I forced them to do it!)  LOL

Here are some pages from their latest kits:

Albums to Remember - Arts and Crafts

Mandy King - The Great Wide Open also available at Gotta Pixel

Quick little FYI - on Mandy's Facebook Page she has a matching freebie mini-kit to match her new release!
