Poppies and Daisies


Romajo has updated her exclusive freebie on her facebook page.  It is a kit called Poppies & Daisies.   If you head over there and sign up for her newsletter (HERE) you can also get this coordinating alpha for free!  But hurry it will be sent out either late tonight, or early tomorrow.


As soon as I saw the colours I knew exactly what I wanted to scrap.  It is a picture of a vase of flowers that we cut from my Grandmothers garden on the day of her funeral.  She has a gorgeous garden (both food and flowers) and it seemed fitting that her own flowers be there as well.  Beside it is a poem that I read during the service.

Have a wonderful weekend.


Woman Warrior


I Slept!  I am so happy.  I am still tired, but at least my 14 days of not sleeping has ended.  It is amazing the difference a little sleep can do.  Now on to the new release.

Mommy Me Time Scrapper and Growing Pains Scrapped have used Princess Mulan as their inspiration for Woman Warrior.  (The eighth in their Princess Inspired Series)   It is filled with so much goodness, and can be used for layouts other than Mulan or China related as well.

I chose to use a picture of Kailey in her ‘attitude’ shirt.  I also created a Brag Book Page for you.  It is 5x7 and can be reduced in size if needed.  Just click the preview below to start the download.

Glam Girl


For this kit, Glam Girl, Katie Creates teamed up with Truman Studios.   It is for those children (and adults) that like to get dressed up, put some make up on and strike a pose.  You can find this kit at both MScraps and GingerScraps by clicking the link UNDER the preview. (If you haven’t heard the announcement from MScraps and Scrapflower, they have combined their personal stores, and can be found at MScraps.  You will be able to find CU products only now at Scrapflower.  If you would like some more information, you can find the announcement on the blog, HERE.

$2 Tuesday–May 28, 2013


So it turns out that there is not much more the Dr. can do to help me sleep.  3 hours of sleep in 12 days is becoming unbearable.  I have tried all of the common suggestions, dark room, no tv/computer/phone within 2 hrs of bedtime, be active, but not near bedtime, relaxation tapes even went so far as to try some tea that was suggested.  (I HATE tea! But I am willing to try anything at this point.) So I am looking for more suggestions.  What do you do if you can’t sleep?   

Tonight it is getting this blog post ready early!  I know I remembered it is Tuesday!  Tuesdays means more $2 Tuesday sales over at Stuff to Scrap.  I do have a freebie for you, so be sure to pick it up before you go.

Campfire and S’More Campfire Fun


Kimberly of Leaving a Legacy Designs has an amazing kit releasing today.  Campfire is all about just that.  Being out in the woods camping.  Whether in a tent or trailer, or just laying out under the stars.  Growing up, camping was very much a part of my life.  Aside from all of the work involved in packing and unpacking, it is so relaxing, and calming.  (Yes even with kids screaming and dogs barking)  Here is the Campfire Kit, as well as the Campfire Word Art:


For at least the next week (possibly 2) you can pick up the add on for this kit for free over on the Leaving a Legacy Designs facebook page.  After that it will be available for sale in her store.  Just click the preview below to head directly to her facebook page.  I used a lot of the pieces of the add on in the layout beside it, as well as pieces from the kit.

Since our long weekend was last week, life is continuing as normal here.  So happy I have a Dr’s appointment as I am just about to break down after not sleeping for 5 days.  (possible 6 since I am typing this up last night!)

Oh, I almost forgot to mention that Stuff to Scrap is having a Memorial Day Sale.  The store is on sale for 25% off until the end of today.

P12 - May


Can you believe we are coming up to May?  I haven’t slept in 4 days, and at night the time just seems to stand still.  During the day though it seems to make up for it.  It has been an average May here in Ontario with the exception of some 32 degrees Celsius (about 90 F) for 3 days.  (The next day it was 0 C – 32 F in the morning.)  I am happy for the cooler nights again. 

Romajo has the next portion of her P12 series – May.  May is filled with bright colours and some adorable monkeys having some fun:


As soon as I seen the monkey on skates I knew exactly the picture I wanted to use.  Except I forgot that it wasn’t a great photo.  It was however enough for me to remember roller skating and loving taking them to my Grandmothers house.  I also created this months cluster and you can download it by clicking on the preview below.

$2 Tuesday–May 21, 2013


What a long weekend.  Amazing temperatures, huge storms, and fun watching the fireworks.  (And definitely fun seeing how long they continued setting of the fireworks – around my house -- after the wind, rain and lightning appeared!)  I hate to say it, but I am definitely feeling the heat.  (And will NOT put the AC on in May!)  Okay it was 32 deg. C, but I am not ready for that yet.  I need to work my way up!

I also want to send my prayers to everyone affected by the tornados, and storms.  I feel gifted to know that my family is safe, and am saddened that others cannot say the same thing.

Because of the long weekend I don’t have any freebies for you today, but I do have some kits to show you that you can pick up for $2 today over at Stuff to Scrap.

Mommy Me Time Scrapper has Flip Flap Flutter and the Flip Flap Flutter Quickpages on sale:

I get to spend today finishing up crocheting another bunny.  The daughter of a friend of mine fell in love with it when I showed her a picture.  The only catch is that it is a library book that is due tomorrow!  (and I am not quite sure how long I have to wait before I can sign it out again!)

Are We There Yet?


A friend of mine left very early this morning (1am) on a trip to New York City.  I couldn’t help but laugh as I worked with this kit.  I can just imagine her girls, (one who HATES long car rides) saying this over and over and over again.

Are We There Yet

This weekend is celebrating their 4th Anniversary.  There will be lots of challenges, fun and PRIZES!!!Kelly created this mini kit to go along with my Are You There Yet full kit as one of the prizes. 

Are We There Yet - Freebie

But if you are not a Disney fan, she also has some freebies on her blog and facebook page that you can grab.  Just click on the previews below to be taken to each stop.

I started off scraping one of my nephews asleep in the car after a very long day, but once I started playing with this kit, I knew I had to go in a different direction.  Here is my layout, as well as a freebie for you.  Just click on the preview below to start the download.
