More fun layouts!

OK, I'm back! I'm finally feeling good enough that I feel like posting on this blog. I have been having a great time as a guest CT member over at ScrapMatters and my month is just about up! However, I have gotten to play with so many fun goodies and I have gotten so many layouts done this month! I have a few more of them to show you here (once again, product previews follow and are linked to the store):

This is a scraplift of Haynay's Layout "I Heart You". I'd been wanting to do a layout like this for a while so this was a perfect opportunity! I love the colours and how they work with Jonathan's eyes! I used "Wanted-Hugs and Kisses" by KimB's Designs (she's new to ScrapMatters!) and Jen Reed, as well as "Great Escape Alpha" by WM[Squared] Designs.

This next one is fun because it's from my trip to Hawaii in 2000! It gave me an excuse to get around to scanning in some photos, finally! I used "Emboss Me" paper pack by Chelle's Creations and "Hawaiian Happy Hour" by the ScrapMatters Design Team - I also used a template by WM[Squared] (Fun & Funky v1).

This page took me forever!! I love how it turned out, though! There was a lot of bits and pieces from different kits and recolouring that went on here - it was very time consuming! The main kit I used "A Dream Within A Dream" by Laitha's Designs and Lilacs in Bloom is no longer available at ScrapMatters. The rest of this credit list is available there: "Emboss Me" by Chelle's Creations, Harvest Happiness by Jady Day Studio, Chocolate Frosted Snowflakes by Stolen Moments, Resolutionary by Stolen Moments, Blessings Alpha by Chelle's Creations, Tropical Sunshine by LDrag Designs and Siamese Studio and template from Tuesday Template challenge by colson.

Last, but not least, I redid an old page for the Extreme Makeover challenge. I got to play with a beautiful Easter Kit called "Easter Joys" by Andilynn Designs. I also used her FREE add-on and a template pack called "Brackety Templates v1" by geniaBeana scraps.
This is the layout I redid:

Well, thanks for looking and I will be back in a few days with the rest of the pages I did this month!

Until next time...

Guest CT!!

So, it's about time I updated this blog!! I applied for the ScrapMatters Creative Team last month and wasn't really expecting much. There were a TON of talented ladies that applied and it was only a one day call! I was so excited when I found out that I'd been selected to be a Guest CT Member for the month of March!! I just love ScrapMatters and they have such talented designers so the only question was...what to scrap with!! I have three layouts that I want to show off right now (and there are more on the way!) Each layout is followed by a preview of the kit, which is linked to the store.

The first layout was done with a gorgeous kit by LDrag Designs called Happy Days! I just knew that the soft colours would be perfect for this page of my youngest boy! I also used Alpha Snips by Stolen Moments Designs and Bigs & Littles Template by Connie Prince.

The next page I did was for our Indianapolis book, which I am so hoping to get done sometime soon so I can send it off to print! I gotta stop redoing those pages!! LOL I used Winter Wishes by the very talented Jennifer Labre and a template by canadianmommy for the Tuesday Template challenge over at ScrapMatters.

The last page I did was one from our trip to France. I had to resurrect the negatives and scan this photo in, but I knew when I saw Amy Stoffel's kit Where Poppies Bloom, that I just had to use it to scrap this photo! I also used Plain Alpha by Flowerscraps.

These are just some of the completely gorgeous kits I've gotten to play with so far and I can't wait to show you what else I've done! But, that will have to wait for another day!

Until next time...
