$2 Tuesday at Stuff to Scrap

I don't know about you, but September is coming way to fast.  Even with the kids going back to school, and the weather getting cooler (hopefully) I am just not ready for the dark mornings and nights.  It is getting dark way to early!  But enough of my rambling.  On to the great sales!

It's $2 Tuesday over at Stuff To Scrap and here is what Mommy Me Time Scrapper has in the bin today!  Hurry over, they are $2 for today only!
Whether you think they are creeping and ichy or cute and adorable, bugs are around us everywhere. So when you're hanging out or just Buggin' Out from all the fun things to do when the weather is nice, take your scrapbook pages back to nature with the fun, cute paper and elements that look at the cuter side of those little creatures that are often just plain buggin' us.

Here is what Leaving a Legacy Designs has in the bin today!  
Remember, they are $2 for today only!

Me-N-You is a soft everyday kit that is perfect for any and all photos. The blues, yellows, whites and browns make this a very versatile kit. It is perfect for wedding photos, date night, girl's night out or just family time photos.

Just a reminder that Stuff to Scraps' retirement sale will be ending at the end of this month.  So if you were thinking of grabbing some of the kits before they are gone, you only have a few days left.

So I am going to be going to my second zumba class this evening.  After the first one it took an hour or two to be able to breathe again, (I am very out of shape)  So I am going back to punishing myself again.  At least the instructor is really helping the new people learn the moves.  Especially when she teaches them before we actually use them.

Shells and Shovels

Happy Saturday everyone.  Romajo has a beautiful summer kit releasing today.  It is called Shells and Shovels. She came up with that name because her little sister would only need a shell and a shovel to play with at the beach.  It is full of bright colours and is the perfect kit to use on all of the summer photos you want to scrap.  It is currently on sale for 50% off, but it won't stay on sale for long.

The Dutch Scrapboard has a summerish blog train for you today.  If you would like to collect all of the kits for free, just click HERE to head over to Romajo's Blog to grab her piece, and to get the list of all of the stops.  But be quick, because they won't be there for long!  Here is a preview of Romajo's part, it also matches the colour palate of her new kit!

Here is a layout that I created with both Shells and Shovels, and the vacation blog train freebie add-on

So I have started to go back to the gym this past week.  Everyday for an hour or two.  The first two days I could barely move, but finally today I can move.  Still sore but that good kind of sore.  Everywhere except for my left arm.  I am unable to straighten it without it starting to shake uncontrollable.  So it looks like I will have to ice, heat and rest it this weekend.   Not quite the way I was hoping my first week would go!

So Kimberly's grouchy friend seems to look at lot like me in the mornings.  If I have to be woken up, either by someone else or an alarm clock, I look exactly like that.  Well maybe not all of the fur.  This grouchy friend was the first thing that caught my eye in this kit. 

Here is how Kimberly describes it:  Are you a morning person or a night owl? Grouchy is a morning/breakfast kit with a twist. My grouchy friend will go great with those fun morning snap shots you got of those kiddos going back to school or how about those sweet photos of your little ones sleeping? Grouchy is a huge kit full of morning and evening elements for any and all pages! You get 22 patterned papers, 5 solid papers and 2 embossed papers. There are 2 alphas: Bedhead is a full alpha with upper and lower case, numbers and some symbols. Coffee is a mixed case alpha with numbers. There are also 60+ elements included in the kit!

Because it is $2 Tuesday over at Stuff to Scrap you can pick up this kit at a great price.   She also has quickpages and templates that match the colour palette of this kit.

I am off to the gym.  I have finally have someone to workout with and I am so excited!  Have a great Tuesday!

Olympic Summer

I don't know about you, but I have been watching quite a bit of the Olympics.  Instead of watching the Olympics, Marieke of Romajo has been busy creating this big kit for you.  It is called Olympic Summer.  Her inspiration was the colours of the Olympic Rings.  She took them and created this great summer kit.  This kit will be 50% off for this week.

She also created this great paper pack that coordinates with Olympic Summer, and it is currently FREE on her blog.  (Click HERE to go)

And if you are a newsletter subscriber, this was the freebie in the newsletter this week.

Here is a layout I made with this kit.

I am patiently awaiting visiting hours at the hospital.  I am a Great-Aunt.  (And no I am not that old!)  My Niece, Paige, delivered a baby girl at 5:09pm yesterday.  Have a great Saturday everyone.
