Some sad news, a couple lo's, and I think I've reached my CT max

Happy Monday everyone! We found out on Saturday that Shawn's grandfather in Illinois passed away. He was such a sweet man and I really loved him. However, I know he's happy because he's with the love of his life in heaven now. I think he missed her terribly since she passed about a year and a half ago. I'm happy they are together now. I made a lo using some photos of him, Shawn, and Benjamin. I'm so glad he was able to meet Benjamin. These photos are so special.

I used by God's design's Father's Day freebie and Laughing Zebra. Both are available at Busy Scrappin'. The font is Bradley Hand ITC.

I have more CT news! I now belong to 3 new CT and I think maybe I have reached my limit. I love being part of these CT's and they will certainly keep me scrapping!

First is The Digi Twins. Their designs are absolutely gorgeous! Visit their blog here and their store at Digital Candy here. I have already used their newest kit in a lo.

The kit is called Recipe for Fun and its adorable and on sale right now!!

The next newest CT is Mistica Designs. Her blog is here and check our her beautiful designs at her shop.

Finally LilyKay Designs. Go see her blog here and her shop here.

Have a great week!!

Couple new lo's and some news!

Hello from the house of a bunch of sick people! I hate summer colds. They are the worst. So we were stuck in the house all day yesterday because I felt really yucky. I'm still feeling it a little bit today but we may venture out to the mall to go pick up Benjamin's 1 year photos from JC Penney.

So being stuck inside yesterday, I got some lo's done. This one is for Xandra Martin and I used her My Buddy Kit. I also used a template by Ziggle Designs. The font is Anmari.

And my news is that I am creating for Laura Lively Designs now. Right now its a 1 month guest spot, but I hope it leads to a permanent position because her designs are gorgeous!! Here is the first lo I created for her.

I used Laura's Midnight Kit. The font is Papyrus.

Thanks for looking!!

Father's Day QP Freebie!!!

Happy almost Father's Day. Its 45 minutes until Father's Day here in Florida. However I'm hoping I don't see midnight because after this post I'm going to bed!

Anyway-I made a QP using by God's design's portion of the collab kit between her and Raspberry Road Designs. See my post below for all the links to get this great freebie Father's Day Collab. Here is my QP. You can pick it up here.

A couple new lo's

Happy weekend!! We have another quiet one in store so I'm glad about that. I'll probably cook a nice breakfast for Shawn tomorrow to thank him for being a great Dad! I have a few gifts for him, but can't mention them yet since he may read my blog!!

This lo is of me and my Mom Moms. The photo is from 1986 so don't mind how scarily 80's I look! I used a template by Jule that was part of a Digichick challenge. The kit is I Love Lilacs by Scrappy Goddess. The font is Wendy Medium.

This lo is a photo from our honey/babymoon in 2007. I used Caribbean Summer by Mistica Designs. The font is Australia Sunrise.

This lo I also used Caribbean Summer by Mistica Designs and it is from a cruise we took in 2005. The font is Jokerman.

Go check out by God's design's blog, by God's design CT blog, Raspberry Road Designs, and Raspberry Road CT blog to pick up the different pieces of a great freebie Father's Day Collab between these 2 designers.

I've been tagged again!!

I've been tagged by the very cool designer Ellie Lash. Here are the instructions:

1. I took tap dance classes for 10 years as a kid.
2. I was a girl scout for a while. I quit because I got tired of making gold spray painted macaroni art. We never camped or did anything cool.
3. I love to read (I may have used some of these for the 1st time I was tagged. I can't remember and I'm too lazy to go back and look.)
4. Sometimes I can be lazy!
5. I can live night and day on macaroni and cheese.
6. I used to be a bartender.
7. I once drove from Texas to Maine for a guy (and not the one I ended up marrying-the one I married is much better!)

OK I am tagging a couple cool designers and some girls I was just on a CT with for Lisa Minor.
1. Lisa Minor -awesome designer who is crazy generous with her talent!
2. Scrapshana -a nice lady who stopped by my blog and I went to check out her blog and saw that she is a great designer. Really cute stuff!
3. Linda-go check out her beautiful lo's and leave some love!
4. Sandy -she made some really great QP's for Lisa Minor's Miss Ladybug's Garden kit. Plus she has a recipe on her blog for a new macaroni and cheese to try!
5. Suzie Q.-another talented lo artist!
6. Candy-she has the nicest lo's featuring her adorable kiddos!
7. Karen-Another wonderful digiscrapper! Go cheer her on with her scrapbooking goals!!

OK, hopefully none of these great ladies hate me after I tag them! I just don't want to mess with the blogging gods by not continuing the chain! If it makes you all feel better, I got one of those paperback book chain letters in the mail today. Since my mom sent it I feel like I have to do it! So I have to go figure that one out now!! Have a great day!!

More new lo's

I have been having a blast cranking out lo's. I am trying to work on some designing stuff too. The only way I'm going to get better at designing is to practice, practice, practice, right? I'm working on a spring kit (even though its pretty much summer now) and also a retro 80's kit because I just loved the 80's and miss them so!

One of the designers I create for, Eclectic Scrap Style Designs, is a guest designer for June at The Digichick. You can check out her Digichick Store here. While I was over there I checked out their challenges. They have daily challenges there. You can see their challenges in their forums. So here are a couple lo's for 2 of their challenges.

This one is for their Sunday Ad Inspiration Challenge. I used Jack by the Benevolent Boutique Designers and a word art freebie from by God's design that coordinates with the Jack kit. It is available on her blog. The font I used is Tempus Sans ITC.

This lo is for their Monday Color Challenge. I used Abilities by Lisa Minor and My First Font by Jill D-Zines. The other font I used was Kristen ITC .

We are to Gymboree and some grocery shopping a later. Exciting, I know!!! Thanks for stopping by!!

New lo's!

We are enjoying a quiet weekend at home after the craziness of last weekend's festivities. I loved throwing Benjamin a birthday party, but am kind of glad its over and it was a success. We went to a friend's 1st birthday party yesterday and it was a lot of fun. We are going to try to get some stuff done around the house today and of course relax a little. I am working on some new freebies so I'm hoping to get them done soon and put up here on the blog.

I finished another lo for Eclectic Scrap Style Designs. Stop the presses! I extracted!! But if you look a little further in this post you'll see some actual non-extraction lo's from me!

I used her Grunge and Graph Paper Pack , Stamp Frames I , and Cherry Bits .

I also have a couple lo's using Tim by Claudi Designs .

One more thing! Don't forget that Brittney Ferguson and Xandra Martin are in the middle of their Scrap-a-Ganza giveaway. The 1st 5 links are up at Brittney's CT Blog . Next week the links will be there as well. Then the last 2 weeks will be at Xandra's Blog. Here is a preview of Brittney's portion of the kit. Its super fun!

Have a lovely rest of your weekend!!

Have you heard of Benevolent Boutique?

Benevolent Boutique sells scrap kits where the money raised goes to charity. Their 1st kits are called "Jack" and "Jill" They are potty training themed, but as you can see from my lo below they can be used for non-potty training purposes! All the proceeds from these kits go towards the Make-A-Wish Foundation and here's a preview of what they look like:

I used the "Jack" kit in this lo. Other credits are a template by Weeds and Wildflowers and Date Bits by Misty Cato. I am addicted to extracting recently. I'm not sure why!
