Been so MIA! Bunch of new lo's!

I have been having such a hard time finding time to update this blog! I'm grateful for the busy life, but sometimes its crazy! My mom and dad are spending the month of January out at the beach so we have been visiting them out there. That has been lots of fun! Benjamin just loves his Mom Mom and Pop Pop!

I have been able to crank out quite a few layouts in the last couple of weeks. I'm trying to stay on top of my CT duties and even doing the occasional non-CT layout! Mostly those are for challenges though which I'll talk about a fabulous new site for challenges and fun in a minute.

These first 2 lo's I used Heart of Glass by Diva Designz. The 1st lo is a pic of my boys watching squirrels in the backyard. I thought they looked so cute! The font is Fiolex Girls. The 2nd is from Valentine's Day almost a year ago of Benjamin smelling (although I really think he wanted to eat) the roses. The font is Calligrapher.

Now, about that new website. Enchanted Studio Scraps is now open. Well, the forums and gallery are and the store will be opening very soon. The challenges there are great and you can earn points for credit in the store!

This first lo was for their Color Sorcery Challenge which is their color challenge. The color swatch for this month comes from the Warmth of Friends Blog Train the ESS designers had not too long ago. So that's the kit I used along with Date Bits 8 by Misty Cato and the font is Tristan. The photo is of Benjamin helping us sweep leaves in the backyard. He is so helpful!

This lo is for their Elf Excerpt challenge. This is a song lyric challenge. This month is "Do you believe in magic." This lo is me and my niece on my wedding day. The kit is Soft Whisper by Steel City Scraps. The template is called The Gift of Friends and is a blog freebie from Steel City Scraps. The font is Tristan.

This next lo is for the Magical Moments word art challenge. I used The Overstuffed Stocking by Digi Overdose and the word art is also by Digi Overdose.

The next 2 lo's are for the Fairytale Storybook challenge. Hopefully I'll be able to keep up with it and have a complete ABC book for Benjamin. I used Digitreats Run ABC and the font Batik on both these lo's.

This next lo is for the Charmer's Time Dance Desktop Challenge. The desktop template is by Danielle Corbitt. The kit is Mid Morning by Danielle Corbitt and Brenda Smith.

This next lo is for the Pixie Pouch challenge. You get a freebie mini kit from Trish H Designs and have to create a lo using all parts of the mini kit. This months mini kit from Trish H Designs is an add on to her kit Winter Flurry. The font is Occidental.

The Build a Fairy Treehouse challenge is the template challenge. The template is by Brenda Smith Designs. The kits are Kale and the Kale add on by Brenda Smith Designs. I also used Birthday Labels from Misty Cato and the font is Occidental.

That's it for challenge lo's for now. I have a few more challenges to complete for this month. If you complete all the challenges you get a bonus freebie kit so that my goal for the end of this month!

These next 2 lo's I used Italian Cottage by Litterbox Creations. The template is by Templates by Linz. The 1st, of course, is of my belly. I'm now at almost 30 weeks and even bigger! Eeek! The 2nd is just me showing off my beautiful family. Shawn and I will be celebrating 2 years of marriage in a couple weeks. It sure has been and eventful 2 years!! The font on the 2nd lo is Blackadder ITC.

And last, but certainly not least, a couple lo's for Brittney Ferguson's Designs. The 1st is a 2 pager showing a fun day at the park with Benjamin. I used Circle Obsession by Brittney Ferguson Designs. The template is from Liz Designs and the fonts are How Cute Am I from Darcy Baldwin and Cuckoo. The 2nd lo are pics from the cute little hotel Shawn and I stayed at in Puerto Rico a couple years ago. I used Hotel Charm from Brittney Ferguson Designs. I also used Grunge Masks from Tracy Murphy Designs and the font is Charlemagne Std.
