Dream Castle


I have been learning about some of the holidays and traditions that happen outside of North America.   Marieke (of Romajo) is gearing up to celebrate Queensday this coming Tuesday.  As the name applies it was to celebrate the Queen.  This year however is a little different.  The current Queen will be abdicating the throne and a new King and Queen will be crowned.  (The first king in over 100 years!)  What excitement.  If you are interested in some more information about it, I know that she has written up some on her blog HERE.

With the celebration approaching you know that that means a new kit.  But before I get to that, on April 30, 2013 she will be having a flash sale in celebration.  (Please watch the dates and times)


In honour of this day, Marieke has created Dream Castle.

With the crowning of a new King and Queen, she created this freebie for you.  She wanted to make sure that there was a King and Queen available.  To grab this freebie, just click on the preview below to go to her blog.  I used this to created this layout of the cookie monster in our family.

I hope that you are all enjoying your weekend.  Today I am back to a NSD crop and then off to photograph a 5 year olds birthday party.  Lots of excitement.

Have you ever been worried about getting things done?  Now what if you don’t need to have it done for two weeks?  I have been finding myself in that situation a lot lately.   I think it is because I am finding time going so fast.  What to you do to not worry about due dates?

Another Tuesday is here and that means new $2 sales over at Stuff to Scrap.  There are some freebies, so be sure to grab them.

Speed Scrap Sunday Morning


Hi everyone, I just wanted to pop in to tell you about a speed scrap that will take place Sunday Morning.  To easily find the thread in the STS forum, just click on the flyer below.





Can you believe that there are only 9 days left in April?  Am I the only one thinking that time is going by too fast?  I remember as a child time seemed to move so slow.  I could use a couple of those days now.  Marieke of Romajo is ahead of the month and has her April P12 kit releasing today. 


I am continuing to summarize the months on my layouts as these kits come out.  It is a great way to sum up the month without having to worry about photos.  If I have them great, and if not then there is usually something that happened.  The font on my layout is quite small and hard to read so I have summed up what is on there below.  I also created April’s cluster for you, and if you would like it you can downloaded by clicking on the preview below.  For more freebies head on over to the Romajo blog by clicking HERE.

April has been a weird month.  We had enough rain, freezing rain and ice to break huge branches in the trees in town, and enough sun to give me a sunburn!  Construction season is in full swing.  The street I live on is getting torn up and worked on this summer.  Much to my disappointment we discovered that they are redoing the street behind us this spring.  So from April – August we will have a lot of noise and shaking as they do their job.  The worst things is that unless it is raining we can’t even open the windows because of all of the dirt flying around.  It is going to be a long spring/summer!   My car has decided to be a pain and will put on the battery and brake warning lights on whenever it wants to.  Nothing seems to be wrong though.   I have been trying to use a CPAP machine.  It was suggested that I try it since my blood oxygen level drops. I am having a sleep study done to find out if it was helping.  Last time I slept for 34 minutes, and since I didn’t sleep last night, I am really hoping that I can sleep tonight.  To top things off, I found out I get to get tests done for my heart the day before my birthday…. yippee! 

So enough of all of the bad things April brought me.  How is your April going?

Mother Knows Best


Leaving a Legacy Designs has a new kit in stores!   It is called Mother Knows Best, but can be used for so much more.  (I have an Easter page below!)  She has put it on sale for 30% off for the rest of April, but if you buy it before April 25th you can get the wordarts for free!  Just grab the coupon code below.


The first layout is of my Mom, Tanis.  I love her so much.  Like I hinted above, this second layout is of my great-niece Kailey, with the bunny that I crocheted for her for Easter.  The two bunnies are just adorable!

Have a wonderful weekend,




Mommy Me Time Scrapper has teamed up with Growing Pains Scrapped and The Scrappy Kat to create Wonderland for you.  In case you haven’t guessed, Wonderland was inspired by Alice in Wonderland.


We have a place called Storybook Gardens about an hour from home.  It has animals, play equipment, and fun activities all based on storybook characters.  The layouts below are of my two oldest nephews (the pictures are over 20 years old!) Cody and Ethan, during one of our visits.
