Michelle from Just for You Digi-Scraps has a beautiful new kit in the STS store. It has a beautiful color pallette of soft green, purple and turquoise blue. There are plenty of feminine flowers and ribbons, but I can see how the blues and greens can be used for infant boy layouts as well, making it a pretty versatile kit. Click on the image to go download this lovely kit.

M'm M'm Good

I didn't get this posted in time for the Motto Challenge at STS, but I wanted to share it anyways. Kit is Freshly Baked by Creations by Rachael.

I'm excited about this layout. I figured out how to recolor just a portion of the picture. The scarf and bottom of her shirt were originally a dark red color. I chose the dark green color in one of the papers and changed the color. Woot!

This lovely kit is Cherish by Osten Wilkins Design.

Speed Scrap Today!

I won't be able to attend, but maybe you can. Details on the flyer.

And here's that participation prize. Looks pretty good!

High Hopes

I know I am getting ready to graduate my daughter, but I scrapped this photo of my son's graduation last year. It was for the Word of the Week challenge at STS. The word this week was "hope".

Kit is 2 by 2 by Stacey's Scraps.

That's Groovy Baby

Take a look at what Scrappy Kat has created for week 3 of the NDIDDS competition! I told you it would be groovy, baby. Click on the preview to download it for free from JustDigiLayouts. But you'll want to hurry up. It's only available until next Friday.

This kit takes me back to my childhood in the 60's and 70's when the world really was groovy, LOL. I can't help but think of the Partridge Family while I'm playing around with this kit.

And don't forget...

Shining Star

I got a chance to play around with Scrappy Kat's kit, Twinkle Twinkle My Little Star. I used a different sort of theme for this kit. I think she made this with a bedtime/naptime with kids idea. Well, I decided to go with the star theme and highlight My Shining Star:

So excited!

I decided to step out on a limb and apply to be a Creative Team member for some digital designers. I really didn't expect anything, but thought, what the heck, why not try?

Imagine my surprise when Scrappy Kat accepted me!!!!! Kat is a designer for the Stuff to Scrap (STS) store. Kat is a fairly new designer who lives in "that state up north". (Anyone who is an Ohio State fan knows that means Michigan! But that's okay because two of my best friends are native Michiganders.) She is also competing in The Next Designs in Digital Design Star competition at Just Digi Layouts. She has made it through the competition to week 3.

Here are two of Kat's kits available in the STS store now. Click on the preview to jump to her shop.

I am looking forward to working with Kat and her kits. The next kit she has designed for the NDIDDS competition is just "groovy". I have the perfect photos for that kit. I'll post it when it is done.

Kristi's Mother's Day

My sweet niece Kristi has 3 adorable children. Her little girl is my namesake! She has recently separated from her husband and is staying with her parents until she can get back on her feet. She suffers greatly from Crohn's disease and is really not physically able to work. She is a beautiful girl and a wonderful mother. I couldn't resist scrapping this photo of her babies.

Happy NSD!!!!

Unfortunately, outside commitments have made it impossible for me to fully partcipate in many activities for today. But I did get a chance to scrap some.

This page was made to celebrate my second daughter's graduation from college. She is the first of my children to finish college. I am so proud of her.
