P12 November


The days and nights haven’t definitely gotten colder.  Snow flakes come and go quickly, but you can tell that it will soon be here to stay.  November is almost at an end.  I am stopping in today to show you P12 – November by Romajo.  I love the muted tones that remind me of the sunsets in November, or those last days at the beach.  You can find it on sale in her store this week.


My Niece sent me some photos of Kailey asleep in her big girl bed for the first time, as well as one from nap time this week.  Kailey only turned 1 in August, but had firmly decided that she was done with the crib.  She loves her bed!  I have been playing with masks recently and decided try it out on this layout.  The template credits are below the layout.  I also have Novembers cluster freebie for you.  Just click on the preview to start the download.

All Wrapped Up


Have you started, or finished your Christmas shopping?  I have done a bit, but for most of them I am doing a homemade gift.  At the beginning of November I was all I have lots of time, now that November is coming to an end I have started to panic a little.  One of my favourite things about this time a year is wrapping presents.  My Mom and I would always spend an evening or two with Christmas movies or songs playing in the background, and the living room full of wrapping paper rolls and bows and tags, and the scissors and tape that always disappeared!  It was always a fun time. 

I was reminded of this memory again when I seen the newest kit by Leaving a Legacy Designs.  All Wrapped Up was inspired by ‘brown paper packages tied up with string” and is full of brown papers and lots wrapping embellishments, as well as trees and snowflakes.  It really is jammed pack full of embellishments.  You can find this kit on sale for 20% off until Sunday.


Unfortunately for me those nights of wrapping with my Mom did not include a photo of us, however my cat just wanted to be mischievous and play with the paper and get tangled up in ribbons.  So that is what I scrapped below.

I have also created this layout using All Wrapped Up for the Recipe Challenge over at Scraps N Pieces.  (You can find the challenge HERE)

Just BeeCuzz


As I am typing this, I am thinking that it can’t be the 21st of November already.   DSD was only last week, wasn’t it? 

Mommy Me Time Scrapper has been busy again, this time working with Jenn of Triple J Designs.  Their inspiration came from a recital outfit that Tammy’s daughter recently wore.  Any guesses on what that outfit was?  Tammy and Jenn came together to create Just BeeCuzz.   You can find it on sale for 20% off in the Triple J Designs store over at Scrap Takeout.  (The previews are linked to take you directly there)


I have been wanting to do a scrapbook page of both my great nieces, not as they are now, but of how each one looked within the first week of them being born.  I loved that I have some photos of them in similar poses, and used two of them to create my layout.  I also have created a border freebie for you.  I had to reduce the size of it to fit it on the preview, but it is 12 inches high.  To download it just click on the preview below.

I am all set to spend a day without water.  At least the city gave us 15 hours notice!  What fun.  What does your day hold for you?

Lucky Fin


I am going to be keeping this short.   I decided to drink a lot of milk this past week, and being lactose intolerant, I am now paying the price.  (I can usually handle bits at a time.)  Thankfully I am starting to keep food down!

Now on to the good stuff.  Mommy Me Time Scrapper and Growing Pains Scrapped have teamed up to create Lucky Fin.  A kit that was inspired by Nemo,  This kit is filled with lots of fish and underwater creatures.  You can find it on sale for 40% off until Thursday.

My Great Niece, Kailey adores the water.  She is a fish at heart.  So when I saw this kit it was easy to find the perfect photos.  I also loved making the underwater scene, and have it for you as a freebie.  Just click on the preview below to start the download.

Count Your Blessings


With the passing of the Canadian Thanksgiving, and with the US Thanksgiving coming up in a few weeks this newest kit by Leaving a Legacy Designs says it all.  Count your Blessings was the perfect reminder to stop and really think about all of the blessings in your life.   As one of the sayings in this kit say, “In everything give thanks” (1Thessalonians 5:18)  You can currently find this kit on sale for 20% off.  The preview is linked to the store.


With my Niece giving birth this past week, I have been very grateful that the delivery went smoothly and that Mommy and Baby are doing well.  I used a template from Two Pager Pack 5 by AK Designs, and Count Your Blessings to create this two page spread of Kailey really enjoying her first fall.  (She was only two months old last year)

Have a wonderful Tuesday.  (Or Wednesday!)

Dive into Fall (Revisited)


Hello there.  I am just popping in today to show you a brand new collaboration by Mommy Me Time Scrapper and The Scrappy Kat.  They had so much fun with the rest of the Dive into series, that they wanted to update their older kit Dive into Fall.  So Dive into Fall (revisited) was born.  It is filled with pumpkins, an apple tree, a scarecrow and some corn.  Some acorns, and a squirrel who is ready for the cold.  There are so many options with this kit.  It definitely screams fall, (or at least the fall here in Ontario)


You will also find that Dive into Fall uses the same colour palette as Dive into Halloween, so you can combine them for a huge kit.  My layout features my niece Paige,  (The one who is now a Mother of 2!!)  having fun with a pile of leaves at my Grandparents house.  I also have a Brag Book Page Freebie for you today.  It is 5x7 in size and can by easily resized.  To download it just click on the preview below.

Thankful Alpha


I have been come a Great Aunt for the second time!!  My Niece gave birth to a baby girl on November 7th.  Here is Kailey meeting her little sister Serena Faith (scrapbook page to come)


Marieke, the designer behind Romajo has created four versatile alphas for this weeks release.  She named them Thankful Alpha.  This past week an F1 tornado went over her house.  Her husband was home, but she and her daughter were away visiting friends.  Her husband was fine, and aside from some shingles to be replaced, and a few other touch ups they were very lucky.   She has updated her store this week as well.   Click HERE to head over and check it out. 

Here is the Thankful Alpha Pack:

Thankful Alpha

I didn’t have a chance to scrapbook anything since DSD, so here is a layout by Marieke, featuring her daughter and Stitch.


Until later,


Friday, November 01, 2013



Well, Halloween was a miserable night.  Heavy rain and winds, and even some thunder and lightning put a damper on the trick or treaters.  I could definitely see them trying to decide whether to keep going, get more candy and get wet, or just say its a night, and get inside.  There were some great costumes this year. 

Romajo has a new kit releasing today, and is also participating in a blog hop.  She took the colour palette for the designer challenger over at Mousescraps, and not only made a freebie for the blog hop, but also created a full size kit that coordinates with it.  Here is her new kit, Hallow-Kids.  You can find it on sale for 50% off as it is included in her storewide sale.


And here is a peek at the freebie.  To find out how to pick up all of the freebies, click HERE, or on the preview below to head over to her blog.


I used a template by AK Designs, as well as the pieces in Hallo-Kids, as well as the freebie.  I loved the title cluster that I created, so I decided to offer it to you as a freebie.  Just click on the preview below to download.

Have you figured out how you are spending DSD tomorrow?  I have a list of things I would love to participate in, and some that I am already.  I am so happy that they give us some extra time to complete the challenges.  However you spend it, have a happy Digital Scrapbooking Day,


Dive into Halloween
