New lo's and another Christmas Freebie!

Hello December! I am having a hard time comprehending that it is December already. Christmas is almost here. My baby just turned 18 months old. I am 6 months pregnant with a little over 3 months to go!! Where is time going?!?!

Anyway, here are a couple new lo's that have been keeping me busy. This first lo is of my ever growing belly. I am so much bigger this time than with Benjamin. I feel like my skin cannot possibly stretch anymore and yet I still have 15 weeks to go! I used Steel City Scraps Soft Whisper on this lo. The template is by Trish Jones and the font is How Cute Am I by Darcy Baldwin.

This lo is of Benjamin from about this time last year. We were in Illinois visiting Shawn's family and it was cold. This little Florida boy was not excited about the layers upon layers of clothes he had to wear and then being stuffed into the car seat! I used a template by Steel City Scraps that is a blog freebie. I used Steel City Scraps portion of the Digital Candy Christmas Mega Grab Bag. I also used Blister Dates and the font How Cute Am I both by Darcy Baldwin.

This photo is of visiting Santa last year. Benjamin was about 6 months old. This photo was taken about 10 seconds before the tears started! I used Christie Lemmon's portion of the Digital Candy Christmas Mega Grab Bag. I also used Journaling Strips by Designs by Angie Kovacs and the font is Kringle.

And just for fun, here's the photo taken about 10 seconds later. I'm hoping for better luck this year!

Here's the December desktop I made using Christie Lemmon's portion of the Digital Candy Christmas Mega Grab Bag. The desktop template is by Danielle Corbitt.

And lastly is a lo I made for the Digital Candy Candy Jar #27 challenge. The kit is Candy Jar #27 by Trish H. Designs. The alpha is Falling Leaves Alpha by The Digi Twins. The font is Minya Nouvelle. I also used Small Scallop and Scallop Dot Actions by Atomic Cupcake.

I was so excited this week because I got to play with the newest products by Bannerwoman Designs. She has come out with 9 new styles. They have been tested in both PS and PSE. I personally used them in PSE 5 and they worked beautifully.

These styles are now available at Digitals,, and DigiScrap Warehouse. I made a freebie using some of Bannerwoman's styles, plus a couple great freebies that Mega-Doodle Inspired has recently offered. I was just messing around and came up with some Christmas Embellishments. You can pick these up here.

And finally, Friday is Fantastic Friday at ScrappinFreestyle. Everything is at least 25% off! The designers have added tons of new stuff recently including lots of holiday products and CU products.
