Snow Fun

I'm trying to stay cool so I thought I'd create a winter layout! The templates are Templates by Erika #35 & #36. Paper and elements are Raspberry Road Designs Mystic Winter kit again. The word art on the right side is from MissMint's Wild Weekend kit. Please excuse how the pictures are not lining up. I can't seem to get blogger to agree with how I want my pictures placed. LOL

I'm on a roll now that I've figured out how to use templates! Another layout that I'm creating for my daughter's graduation scrapbook (I've got a year to scrap 18 years!). Another Shazbutt template and papers and elements from Vicki again, this time from her new Pink Mocha collection. Enjoy!


Here is a quick page I scrapped this morning. The template is from Shazbutt's Digi-scrapz. The paper and elements are again from Vicki at A Work in Progress from her Cinnamon Toast collection (I love her stuff). This is a picture of my sweet baby girl, when she was a sweet baby.

Where to print scrapbook pages

I wanted to share where I send my digital scrapped pages to be printed. Scrapbooks to Share is located in Florida. I've sent several orders to them and had no problems at all with the delivery or the quality. The only problem I had was that they do not directly accept Paypal, but you can direct Paypal to send a payment to them. Not really much of a problem, as far as I'm concerned. I received my orders within 3-4 business days. And the quality is such that my son had to touch the page in order to tell that it was not 3 dimensional. For $1.00 a page for 8.5x11 inches or smaller and $1.50 a page for bigger pages, this is a bargain. They have a flat shipping rate of $6.00 each order, but it is unlimited in the number of pages this order includes. You can pay extra for faster shipping rates, but really, I think I can wait 3-4 days to get my pages. They also offer services to scan your paper-scrapped pages for digital storage, but I haven't utilized that service.

I do not have any business ties to this company at all. I am just a satisfied customer and want to share my experience with others who may need this information. Visit their website for more information.

PS: I know that some folks go to Costco for their printings. I go to Costco about once each month and am planning a trip there tomorrow. I'll check into their services tomorrow and report back.

Graduation Layout

Here is a layout I made to celebrate my son's recent graduation. Credits include: Paper by scrappypony Grungingaround kit and Raspberry Road Designs SallyAnn and NewBeginnings kits, frames by kpertiet_Web51108 at DesignerDigitals and Miss Mint coordinated kit Wild Weekend frame1 from Peppermint Creative, Word art by Heralds_Graduation kit from Heralds Place, School seal obtained from school website, brad from TerresaS Designs Honoring Our Parents kit, wire embellishment from twoboyz00 BoyOhBoy kit, font is Bradley Hand ITC.

Another Page

I had minor outpatient surgery two days ago. Although it is difficult for me to do, it is quite evident that I'm taking my recovery time seriously and not doing anything except for what I want to do! I've created another scrapbook page. It features my daughter (and I'm sorry that the photo is rather blurry, that is how she wanted it to look when she took the photo). I utilized a template by Racketty Scrappety (template 13) and page elements from Raspberry Road Designs Mystic Winter kit.

Crazy Summer Love

I used Val's Retro kit from VJ's Scraproom for this. The pics were taken at a photo booth at our local mall a year before we were married.


I've been learning to digital scrapbook. I think I like this better than paper scrapbooking at this time in my life. My house is busy with 2 teens and 2 young adults, 2 cats and 2 parents. In addition to those who live here, our house has become the place for the kids' friends to hang out. I don't mind that, but it does make for a crowded house at times. You'll notice in the links list some of my favorite freebie digiscrap sites and my favorite recipe sites. These seem to be what I enjoy doing the most.
Here is page I created just this evening. The scrap elements were freebies from Vicki at A Work in Progress. This is from her collection called BritPop. I love the bright colors she uses in this kit.

I'll be sharing more of my pages in the days to come as I just completed my son's scrapbook for his high school graduation party. That would explain why you will see mostly pages of him. I plan on starting on my youngest daughter's scrapbook this summer as she will graduate next spring.
