New Collab and Exciting News from Nicole!

Well.. There are some exciting things going on in digiscrapland, and Nicole is right at the center of it! Her gallery and forum is expanding and is now called Stuff to Scrap! There are a bunch of great designers and forum members, so if you haven't been there yet, you really should! Click the flyer to be taken to Nicole's blog to learn more about all the great things she has going on..
And in other exciting news, Nicole has a new collab with Steph, aka Scrappy Cocoa. It's called Hello Easter, and it's SO cute! It's not your typical eastery/springy color combo, so it's totally versatile for lots of other layouts - as you can see from mine, below. :) Following my page are the previews for these talented ladies, which will direct you to their blogs where you can start collecting the kit. Have fun with it! I know I sure did! ;)

I'll be back later this week with pictures from my trip to St. Louis with Nicole... :D

Speed Scrap Alert!

Peace, Love, Happiness

My sweet CT member Kathy has done it again! She's really taken to this whole designing business, and now we get to reap the rewards! Her second kit, Peace, Love, Happiness, was inspired by her 11 year old daughter who just loves these bright funky colors and symbols.. I know I certainly remember a time when I was the same way! Below, you'll find the LO I made with the kit and the preview, which you can click to be taken to her blog to download.. Be sure you leave her lots of love.. She's doing SO great, and I really hope she keeps up her new "hobby".. ;)

My Life Alpha

Before I give you tonight's freebie, I wanted to introduce my Guest CT for this kit: Amanda Krueger, aka MandaK. Here's what she had to say about herself:

Hello! I'm MandaK! I hail from Minnesota and am mommy to a 3-1/2 year old little boy. I was married to my wonderful husband Mike in August of 2008 and we are a happy little family! I fell in love with digi-scrapping about 6 months ago and consider myself obsessed! When I'm not sitting at the computer digital scrappin' you can find me playing with my son, hanging out with my husband or baking something yummy in the kitchen!

You can visit Manda's blog HERE. Aside from amazing layouts, she creates some really great templates - be sure to check it out! Here is her fantastic layout:

Tonight you're getting the alpha for this kit. I don't have a "real" preview of them, so this silly close-up will have to do! ;)
Freebie has expired. Purchase HERE.

And a quick comment about the comments ... Those of you who were worried I had misunderstood your comments, no need - I wasn't refering to you at all. Also, I haven't deleted any comments from my blog (intentionally) so you don't need to worry about that, either. I know you're all great people - because you're still here after all the drama.. Thanks again!

Oh! And THANK YOU for the birthday wishes! You are all too sweet!

My Life Elements

I'm so thrilled that so many of you are enjoying this kit! And I apologize for the problems with downloading.. However, I am greatly disheartened to have seen some very uncharitable comments on some of the blogs involved with the DC Blog Hop as well as my ABC Brag Book Blog Train.. How unfortunate! I never would have imagined that the same people who leave such sweet and kind comments for me would be capable of such harsh words.. Oh well - we will move on, won't we! ;)
Here are a few more LOs from my fantastic CT with this kit...
Be sure to stop by their blogs to leave them lots of love! The really deserve it! :)

Happy Birthday to YOU!

Yay! It's my birthday week, and I have so many fun things in store for you! :) First, I wanted to let you know about a sale at my store right now.

In addition to the great savings, everyone who makes a purchase during the week - from now through Saturday - will be entered into a drawing to win a Gift Certificate to my store, as well as a personalized mini kit designed by yours truly. So be sure to stop by! I'm hoping to have some more products in there soon - for those of you who have already purchased everything ;) - but my EHD died yesterday, and with it EVERYTHING digital in my life - including a brand new kit that I hadn't uploaded anywhere yet - bummer! .. I've had to go and re-download all my own kits, and try to hunt down as many of my CU stash as I could- it's been a pain, and hopefully I'll find someone tomorrow who can retrieve the files.. I'd sure hate to lose all my pictures - not to mention DH's school work and work work that he just moved off his laptop and onto the EHD in case something happens to his laptop while he's in South Africa this week! Oy!

BUT - on to happier things! I asked my CT for some input on ideas for things we could do this week. Lori suggested 25 brag book pages, then Sarah chimed in that, "Why don't we do 26 and make an ABC album out of Alphabet Remix?" They took and it flew with it, and the rest is history.... So.. for your first set of birthday goodies, you get an ABC Brag Book Blog Train! I don't have everyone's previews yet, so here's the list - or you can just click on their charming pics to your left.. Be sure you leave them lots of love; they really did this all on their own!


Here's a look at what you'll be getting:

If you like what you see, and think you may have use for the whole kit, be sure to stop by my shoppe - click the preview below
Now - be sure to come back tomorrow for the start of my new kit - you can see a sneak peek a few posts down.

Also - sign up for my newsletter by Tuesday, and you may just receive a little extra somethin' somethin' from me! ;)
