Monthly Memories Collection {January} on sale through May 31st for $2.00 at My Memories

Karen Diamond Designs is running a terrific sale on her Monthly Memories Collection {January} at My Memories.  The sale is a savings of 59%, so be sure to grab it soon.  Here is a preview of the kit:

I would like to share a layout I created using this kit.  Yes... Sammy was sad. Very sad.  You may remember I was in the hospital for several weeks in January.  My husband and daughter would send me photos of Sammy.  He looked so very sad.  When I got home.. Sammy sat above me and laid his head on mine the majority of the time.  Facebook friends may recognize the one photo as my profile photo.  Sammy was quite content when I got home.

You knew this was coming!!

I posted a sneak peak for the upcoming Connie Prince This or That release last Thursday. I just knew it was going to be a great kit for Disney layouts. And I was right!! Here is the preview of the complete bundle:

Connie made my day when she sent me notification of the free word art add on!  I had mentioned to her during the Slow Speed Scrap Friday night that I would have to work  on some word art that said Main Street.  Connie knows that Disney is My Happy Place...  and look what she made.....

Sooo.... you know I had to do this layout:

When I need a little mental boost, I go straight to "my happy place"... which is taking a walk down Main Street.  I look at the history there and marvel at why more people don't spend time just cruising Main Street. It's not just a way to get from one land to another.... it's the central hub of the Magic Kingdom.. and truly filled with all sorts of history.  Try reading all those windows next time you visit!

1 Year Birthday Layout and Frame Cluster Freebie!

I have officially started creating layouts for Karen Diamond Designs.  Here is my first layout:

Yes! Sammy is officially 1 year old now!!  And hasn't he grown up to be a handsome boy?  This coming week, we are having a photo shoot with Chewbone Studio (Bouncing Light Photography) with Sammy. He will become part of their portfolio. So very exciting.  We saw this opportunity on Facebook.  We had hoped for a snowy session.. but I ruined that by ending up in the hospital.  This is our reschedule.

Back to the kit....  now available at Scraps N Pieces,  Monthly Memories Collection {February} will quickly become a favorite.  There is an assortment of date markers that go through 2015!  You will get much use from this kit over the next few years!

Just to get things rolling, here is a little Frame Cluster free to my readers!  Simply click on the image for the download to begin or the download link below.

Note: Link for freebie has been tested with Safari and Chrome and works just fine.  Since a viewer experienced trouble with Chrome, I have also added this file to MediaFire.  4-22-13  7:45 PM Eastern

Until next time....

Oh My Gosh.. Oh My Gosh.. I simply can't wait!

Anyone that knows me, knows I love Disney!  And I am so terribly excited about two of the new releases coming on April 19 from Connie Prince.

See why I am excited?  That first and second one look suspiciously Disney-ish!!  And I am always looking for kits that I can use for my Disney scrapping.

So for today.. I am bouncing off walls!!  Actually.. I still have some work to finish for the upcoming NSD workshop... but I'll be daydreaming of these quite a bit!!

Everyone Loves A Parade and other exciting news!

Yes... everyone loves a parade!  And it doesn't get much better than the Celebrate A Dream Come True Parade at DisneyWorld!  We had the best seating for this parade!  We were right up front and were able to see everything as it came through the barn doors... and the characters were so close.  So very close.

I made this layout for the Connie Prince Slow Speed Scrap using two of her kits. My Happy Place and the Pixel Club Exclusive Magical Place Mini Kit.  (Yes.. I am a member of the GottaPixel Club!  Hope to become a Lifetime Member at the next membership sale!) The downloads are just incredible!

Back to the Slow Speed Scrap though... the font is Disney Heroic.   So without further delay.. here is the layout:

I also have some very exciting news to share!  I have been selected to be a Guest for the month of June on Connie Prince's Creative Team!! I am so excited.. I can hardly wait.  

You may have noticed my header has been updated again.  You guessed it. Most of the header uses Once Upon A Time from Connie Prince.  There is also an element from KellyBell Designs.

The Slow Speed Scraps happen Friday nights at 8 PM Eastern.  You're all welcome to stop by for a chat with Connie. And make a layout.  It's great fun!
