A Retirement Sale and a Speed Scrap


Tomorrow is March 1st.  Can you believe it?  I know February is a short month, but still.  I woke up this morning to wet snow sticking on everything.  The trees were so beautiful.  (and I will just forget about the having to shovel it part!) 



Stuff to Scrap is having a Spring Retirement Sale during the month of March.   Take a look and make sure to pick up any kits you see before they disappear for good.

STS Retirement Add for March

Also, Heather of HD Creations is hosting a Speed Scrap tomorrow night.


I will be back tomorrow with lots of goodies to show you!

I apologize for the quick post.  I just found out that a friends husband was found dead at work.  He was only 38 and they have no idea what happened.  I am pretty shaken up, and can’t imagine what his wife and two kids are going through.  Prayers and thoughts for the family would be most welcome.

Mommy Me Time Scrapper and Growing Pains Scrapped have teamed up again to bring you Speed.  Speed was inspired by the movie “Cars” and is filled with tons of elements!  For one week you can find Speed on sale for 40% off.  Along with the kit, they also have a paper pack available which has cardstocks and worn paper that coordinate with the kit as well as a pack of quickpages.

Speed Scrap Tonight!


Come and join Stephanie of DoubleTrouble Scraps for some fast-paced fun on Thursday, February 21st at 7 PM PT / 8 PM MT / 9 PM CT / 10 PM ET. Follow along in the speed scrap thread or join everyone in the chat room for the fun.


Monkey Business


I have come to the conclusion that I should try no new exercises at the gym.  I woke up today and my legs are burning and don’t want to bare weight.  So I am thinking a day in bed putting ice packs on them might be in order.  And of course if I am sitting/laying down, it makes sense to do some scrapping right?  So maybe the new exercises were a good thing!  Anyways, on to the good stuff.

Katie Creates teamed up with Cornelia Designs to bring you this collaboration called Monkey Business.  You can pick up the collaboration for 30% off ($5.25) until February 24, 2013.  (If you are just interested in the kit, you can also find it 30% off until February 24, 2013 as well.)

I didn’t use one of the templates from this collaboration, but here is a layout I created using the kit:

Katie Creates is also holding a CT Call.  Here is the ad that she created.  If interested, just click on the add below to go directly to her blog.  I can’t wait to see who will be joining the team.  Will it be you?

I Wanna Be a Cowboy


Leaving a Legacy Designs has a new kit releasing today.  I Wanna Be a Cowboy was inspired by the rodeo, but it is filled with more than horses and cowboys.  Take a Look:


Horses have not really been a part of my life.  (At least so far)  My Mom had a bad experience when she was younger, and tried her best to avoid them.  As I scrapped this page, I realize that she had a lot of courage to try to get ‘back in the saddle’, regardless of how that ended!

Leaving a Legacy Designs - I Wanna Be a Cowboy - Never Again

I am sure that you can find some freebies if you head on over to her blog.  Just click HERE to head on over there.

Until tomorrow,




Dreams are a wish your heart makes…. inspired by the movie “Cinderella” Growing Pains Scrapped and Mommy Me Time Scrapper have created Dreams.  (The fifth in their princess inspired collaborations)  It is also on sale for 40% off for 1 week, so grab it fast!


Dreams - Quickpages

I scrapped this photo of my great niece, using Dreams, and I love how it turned out!  I also created a small freebie for you.  You can download it by clicking on the preview below.  You can also find some more freebies by checking out the blogs of Mommy Me Time Scrapper (HERE) and Growing Pains Scrapped (HERE)

Today is the Day!


Today is Bell Let’s Talk Day.  Please before you skip over the rest, I just want to ask that you continue reading for a little bit longer.  This is important to so many people.

A quick disclaimer….. I do NOT work for Bell nor do I have any other connection to them  This is not about them….it is about their effort that they have put into this.  I am only doing this because they are willing to take a stand and do a part…no matter how big or small. 

Very few of us can say we are unaffected by a mental health illness.  One of the biggest hurdles to overcome for anyone with a mental illness is the stigma associated with it.  It is the leading reason why 2/3 of all those living with a mental illness do not seek help. 

Today Bell will donate 5¢ more to programs dedicated to mental health, for every text or long distance call with a Bell provider.  If you do not have Bell, that is not an issue.  They are also donated 5¢ more for every tweet that contains the hash tag #BellLetsTalk, and for every facebook share of their Bell Lets Talk image.  You can find this – HERE on the Bell facebook page.  (You do not need to like the page in order to share it. )

Thank you for continuing to read to the end.  I am not sure there is an easier way to raise money than to talk and text.  Please help me spread the word.

If you are interested, I have created a kit for you that was inspired by eating disorders.  Although it is not really an eating disorder kit.  There are only 4 themed elements in this kit.  The rest of the kit can be used for any other event, or everyday life.  I do ask that you follow my terms of use, and use it for personal use only.

Just click on the links below the preview to download them.
