$2 Tuesday – October 30th


Since I am writing this before Sandy hits, I do not know what the damage will be, but I hope that everyone wasn’t kit too hard, and has stayed safe.

Leaving a Legacy Designs has The Great Pumpkin on sale today


And since Mommy Me Time Scrapper’s store is still on for 40% off, you can find several items for less than $2.  Here are a few examples:

As you can see lots of goodies on sale over at Stuff to Scrap.

A New Kit by Me!


I survived the weekend!  (Well sort of.  I will be stuck in bed today, but I had an amazing time.)  I do have my new (and final) Design Quest kit to show you today, but before I get to it, I wanted to remind you that "A Not so Scary Halloween Night” and “My Little Star” will be no longer available after October 31st.  so if you are interested in grabbing them before they disappear just click the preview to download.


And now on to my new kit.  It is called Book Boat.  This week we had to get our inspiration from Europe.  So of course the first thing I thought of was buildings like Buckingham Palace, Big Ben, etc.  But I knew that I would not be able to pull that off in a week.  So I pulled out some old photo albums.  My Mom was born in England, and our only trip over there came over 20 years ago.  As I was going through these pictures I found a picture of me in front of a boat.  It was a book store called the Book Boat.  Since I love reading, I knew I had found my inspiration.  Here is the kit I put together.  This week we also had to create a Quickpage, so I also have that for you to download if you wish.

We are preparing up here for Hurricane Sandy.  We should not get anything like what the US will be facing, but we are still expected to get high winds and rain.  If you are in an area that will be affected, I hope that you can stay safe.

Cup of Tea?


I survived 7 hours of scrapping!  I am helping out at a crop this weekend, so I have been busy sharing the fun of digital scrapbooking.  However, that means having to get up early to head back tomorrow.  (Am second guessing not just grabbing a hotel room)  Although coming home meant a faster internet connection!  So here I am.  I am posting this early, so if the items are up yet please be patient.

The Mad Hatter was Marieke’s inspiration for this new kit, and Cup of Tea? has turned out beautifully.  It is filled with everything you need for a tea party, but also has enough elements to great more masculine pages.  Here is the kit:


I don’t have a freebie for you today.  As I said the hotel internet service was pretty slow.  Well no pretty about it, it was slow.  However, if you head to Romajo’s Blog (Click HERE) she has a freebie for you there, she also has one in her newsletter, and you can find out the locations of the other freebies as well.  Before I go, I do want to show you the layout I did.  I used a template by AK Designs.

I hope that you will continue to have a great weekend.  It has been raining here non stop, but since I am inside all weekend, it is not bothering me one bit!

Everyday Life


Have you ever done a Project Life?  I haven’t yet.  Although I am thinking about it for the new year.  Why I ask is that Arts and Ains Designs has a bunch of new items releasing today.  They are co-ordinate and a perfect for your Project Life pages.  All of these kits have also been put into a bundle as well.  Take a look:


For the following page, I used these kits as well as a template from Jeanye Labaya Designs.  And of course I made a freebie for you.  It is a journal tag perfect for your Halloween layouts.  Kelly also has some freebies (I know there are 2 for sure) for you.  Just click HERE to go to the Arts and Ains Blog.

I am off today to a weekend crop.  I am looking forward to it as it is always a blast.  I will be popping in tomorrow though with another new kit, and back on Sunday with my final entry for Design Quest.  I am so excited to have made it through all 4 weeks!

What a Hoot Freebie


Hi everyone.  I know that I am normally quiet on Fridays, but I have played with a new kit and even created a freebie for you.  This is the kit that I used.  It is called “What the Hoot” by Arts and Ains Designs.


I used this kit, as well as a template from Meagan’s Creations, to create this layout of me and my sister.  It was taken on the day of her wedding.  (Hence the big knife!)  To download the freebie, just click on the preview.
