Freebie Quick Page!

I am so very excited to offer my readers a FREE QUICK PAGE!!   This page was created using Scrap UR Memories by Touched By A Butterfly.  I also want to say that Touched By A Butterfly has just posted a new FAN appreciation FREEBIE!   Grab it while you can.  (Please note that you must be a fan and Like her page in order to download the Fan Freebie!

I have posted two download links to choose from beneath the image!  It is a zip file.  

Scrap UR Memories is a versatile kit loaded with scrapping elements you can use to make your page have the appearance of being in process!   I personally think this kit was overshadowed with all her Christmas and New Year releases!  Do not make that mistake!  There are also TWO WORD ART kits available that coordinate.  Here is a fun layout I made:

Wishing you all a safe New Year's Eve!!   And many thanks to Touched By A Butterfly for her help!

New Releases!!

Both Winter Woodland and Made with Love have been released at the Keep In Touch Designs store on Winter Woodland is a collaboration with Violamoni.

I must admit I had some fun with the Winter Woodland kit.  We were under a snow blizzard warning. And well...  one thing led to another....  At any rate.. it sure felt like the North Pole that day!!  

I chose to make a Disney layout using Made With Love.  They kept telling my husband and I that all this kissing stuff would pass.  Twenty years later.. we are still at it!!  So many photos of us kissing! 

With New Year's just around the corner...  Touched By A Butterfly has a new release on MyMemories called Happy New Year!  It is on currently 25% off.... so now is the time to grab it. 

Don't be fooled by initial appearances though!  The basic colors of Happy New Year make this a VERY versatile kit.  Here is a show box layout I made....

That was such a fun day with Savannah at the Children's Museum.  When she first started to play in the water, there were no raincoats available.  She got more than a little wet!  THEN we grabbed a raincoat. 

By the way, stop by Touched By a Butterfly's Facebook page. She has a discount code for her fans!

Keep In Touch Designs

I am very pleased to announce that I have been chosen to be on the Creative Team for Keep In Touch Designs!! 

My very first layout was with the "Be Afraid" kit.  Probably an odd choice considering this is Christmas... but the colors were just perfect with our Savannah's witch costume!

Now.. I am starting to get serious about some designing.  This was created using "A Day With You".  Our Chrissy is such a Disney fanatic!!  Her face was filled with joy as she hugged each character.

I would also like to take a moment to wish each and everyone of you a Very Merry Christmas!!

SVG Releases a New Year's Kit!

Totally awesome!!  I was in such a rush to get it as  free gift, I ended up ordering a kit I already had.  Fortunately, Leo (and Mary) are fantastic.  I did receive another kit in exchange for the duplicate.

There is also a New Year freebie just released!  Leo says this is the last kit of the year.   What with their new home... I am betting they are going to really enjoy these holidays!!

I just can't wait to make one of these New Year's items!!

I AM Excited!!

The best thing happened to me today!!  I was talking with Touched By A Butterfly and well.. she invited me to join her Creative Team!  Of course I said yes!!  I think it was more like YES!!

The first kit I am working with is Trip To Zoo.  I have so many zoo photos to scrap.  And then I thought... this would be a great way to start my Animal Kingdom pages!!    That said...

The font is Walter.   I really loved that tree in the upper right. Reminds me of the baobab tree.

October Mini Kit Challenge

I have decided it is time to do more challenges with digital scrapping.  This is my entry for the October Mini Kit Challenge at Ginger Scraps.

Savannah was having great fun with Aunty Chrissy at the park.  They had imaginary races on the bugs.   I saw this kit and my mind just snapped back to that day!   I did traditional layouts of these photos using a technique where the pages opened up.  And of course.. a lady bug was the outside layer!

The kit itself is a really cute mini kit by Luv Ewe Designs.   Why not challenge yourself this month??

Note: You must be a member of the forums  at in order to participate.

This is wonderful!!!

It's time to get down to business now.  I've been on vacation (our kids took us to Disney World!!) and things are settling down again.  So back to the business of scrapping!!

I've been doing some catching up... including buying some digital kits from MyMemories and I found a feature on their web site that I absolutely LOVE!!!

If you try to buy something you already bought... a little pop up comes up to warn you!   How cool is that?  Saved me today it did!!

Interestingly enough.. it did not pop up on a free kit I had already downloaded.  No harm done really.  Just interesting to know.

Yes... the more I use MyMemories... the more I love it!!
