Boy, I didn't realize how neglected my blog was!  I guess time does fly when you're having fun ;-)

I have taken a ton of photos in the past few months, so I'll have a lot of layouts to showcase.  Some of them will even include the newest member of our family, Lady!

Lady is a rescue dog that we took in all the way from Arkansas!  We got her right before Thanksgiving and she fits so perfectly into our family!  We did have a couple of mishaps where she thought the girls' stuffties were her personal chew toys, but other than that, she's been awesome.

We're currently fostering her, as she had heartworms and needed to be treated.  As soon as she gets a clean bill of health, we'll officially be adopting her!!

Anyway, I did do a layout - the first one in over a month - and I wanted to share it with you.

I used a fabulous new kit by Bekah E. Designs called 'Fan Favorite'.  And guess what?  You can get it for FREE!!  Just head on over to her blog and sign up for her newsletter.  Not only will you get the links to the ellies and papers, but links to get free styles and a free alpha, too!  How awesome is that?

Here's a preview of the kit -
And here's my layout -

Thank you so much for taking the time to look and read - now go get your FREE kit!!

New Designers at SDD!

Scrappity-Doo-Dah is overflowing with new designers!  This month, I'm lucky enough to work with two of them - Dagi's Temp-tations and Lilacs In Bloom.

Here is a layout that I made using 'Lemonade Crunchy Ice' by Lilacs In Bloom and 'Color Me Pretty Cluster Templates - Set 1' by Dagi's Temp-tations.


'Lemonade Crunchy Ice' has a beautiful color palette and super summer-y elements.  Perfect for all of those summer photos that you still need to scrap.  And, it's super cheery to work with on dreary days, which we've had quite a few of lately here in Southern Maine!

I love to leave 'white space' on my layouts, and Dagi's cluster templates allow me to do so.  They are balanced perfectly between space and elements, although is would be very easy to use the templates as a jumping off point and cluster 'til your heart's content.

Thanks for looking and I can't wait to show you what else I come up with from these two fabulous designers!!

SDD's scraplift challenge for the 2nd half of the month

Hi everyone!

It's time for another 'You Lift Me Up' scraplift challenge over at Scrappity-Doo-Dah!

This month, I've chosen a beautiful layout by seatrout, called 'BEACH'.

I love the background paper she chose and all of the clustering around the photos.  The circle frames really bring the eye to the beginning of the layout, as well.  She used a kit by Keep In Touch Designs called 'Blue Marine'.

I used a kit by Snapwings called 'Sweet Kiss', and here's what I came up with...

Please come and join the fun!  I'd love to see what you all come up with!

Simple Girl Scraps is the guest designer for the month of June over at Scrappity-Doo-Dah and I've gotten the privilege to work with her all month!!

The first kit I worked with is called 'Funky Fresh', a collab with 3 Lil' Monsters Designs.  It has funky, bright colors and tons of wonderful elements, including the cutest little sun and a string of clouds.

I had so much fun playing it with that I came up with 2 layouts!

I've also gotten the privilege to work with Mandy King for this month.  I love Mandy's designs and was so excited to work on a new kit called 'Tulip Tiptoe'.

I had so much fun with this kit, too!  The colors are perfect for Spring photos and I absolutely love the little birdies she's included.

Thanks so much for looking and make sure to hop on over to SDD to check out all of the new goodies!
