All American BBQ


Just in time for all of the 4th of July celebrations Leaving a Legacy Designs is releasing a new kit today called All American BBQ.  Yes you will find red, white and blue in this kit, but there are also tons of other colours, making it quite versatile.  Filled with food, fireworks and stars and stripes, this kit is full of variety.  She has also created a pack of word art to coordinate with it.  You can find both of them on sale right now for 50% off!  Take a look:


When I was going through photos I found some that I took in New York while on our way to catch a boat for a cruise.  So it was quite a short trip (mostly being driven from the airport to the docks), so I didn’t get to see much.  The Statue of Liberty is one thing that I remember seeing, both from the sky and on land.  It was quite an experience to see something that has so much meaning.  Well I found the photos I took while I was there, and had a blast using this kit to scrap them.  Here are two pages I have done:

Until tomorrow,

Tranquility Beach


It is officially summer!  I am starting to crave the beach.  (or even a pool!)  Romajo has released a beautiful kit, Tranquility Beach.  I love the colours as it reminds me of the beach.  Walking barefoot in the sand, relaxing by the water.  It is so calming.  But my words cannot do justice to this kit, you just have to look for yourself.  She has gone overboard (wait, is there such a thing?), and has a number of coordinating packs available individually, or you can grab them all bundled together.  (The bundle is on sale for only $4.25 until June 28 – that includes everything!  All of the individual packs are also on sale until June 28th)

She has also created a freebie pack of leaves and foliage for you.  Just click on the preview below to head to her blog where you can pick it up.  Also below is one of the layouts I have done using this kit.  It is the perfect substitute for not getting to the beach

I also just wanted to say that my prayers are with everyone near Calgary that are dealing with the floods.  In places the water is over 10 feet high and it is threatening to cancel the Calgary Stampede for the first time in 100 years.  So many people have been evacuated (over 75,000), it is hard to see so many homes filled with water.  (These pictures are not mine)

This kit worked beautifully will these pictures I have of my Nephew, Austin.

Page Builders Vol. 2


Piccolina Designs is back with another template set, Page Builder: Vol. 2  I found these templates to be easy to use, and filled with possibilities.  The first layout I finished also used Piccolina Designs' BAKs that she created for June.  Just as a reminder, if you buy 3 or more kits from the June BAKs you can use the coupon in the flyer below to get 50% off all of the BAKs in your cart!

Here are her kits:

I loved the papers.  They are rich in colour, and have patterns that I love.  It was hard to narrow them down for my layout!  But enough of me talking, here are the layouts i have done using Page Builders Vol. 2:
