A Productive Weeekend!

Happy Memorial Day! Thank you so much to all the men and women who have fought to ensure our freedom.

I took Friday off from work and ended up having a really productive four day weekend - spending time with the kids (including a fun trip to Old Navy with Alexa), cleaning the whole house, and being crafty! Alexa and I made some really cute paper flowers and we set the kids up to fingerpaint on the deck - I definitely have some layouts to do - what a fun mess that was!

I did find some time for me and did these two hybrid projects using templates from Kelleigh Ratzlaff's May Grab Bag. The seed packet features the Tangled Twirls kit by Design by Heather T, and the soap box was made with a paper from Stenciled Papers - Two by Roben-Marie Designs. Oh, and one of our cute paper flowers! :)

A Serious Challenge!

I have always been a big fan of The Daily Digi - they provide such fantastic scrapping information and inspiration. One of my favorite things about the site is "The Digi Files," which is a monthly huge package of kits and templates from both well-known and up-and-coming designers. Every month, TDD offers a challenge with products from that month's digi files. This month I decided to participate!

These are really difficult challenges for me because TDD provides a specific list of products (paper x from kit 1, element y from kit 2, etc.) and you can use those products and only those products, and you have to use each one at least once. The only other thing you can use is fonts. Talk about trying to be creative with very tight parameters!! Here's what I came up with this month!

Sketchapalooza 6 has started!

I have raved in the past about the awesome sketch classes - Sketchapaloozas - at Feeling Scrappy. We started a brand new class yesterday and I'm again doing digital templates for the awesome sketches created by the current design team. Here's the layout I did based on sketch 1 by Becky Rico:

And - I created a pre-class bonus sketch for class participants - here's the layout I based the sketch on:

Happy {inter}National Scrapbooking Day!!

Can you believe it? It's {i}NSD and I spent the day in Philadelphia with the kids at the Please Touch Children's Museum instead of scrapping or shopping for scrapping supplies. We had a blast!! More photos to make more layouts :).

Never fear, though - I've had a very busy week creating. So much news in my digi-world -- first, Mari Koegelenberg is guesting at Miss Tiina and has loaded up a bunch of beautiful goodies in her store. In addition, The Digichick is celebrating their fifth anniversary and the designers have created a huge number of amazing birthday-themed kits that are all 50% off!!!'s my favorite time of the quarter at The Digichick - Grab Bag time! GBs are such a great way to get a ton of digital goodies for a great price. Here's some of what I've done this week!
