Back 2 School and a Freebie

Happy Wednesday all, I know two days in a row, ya'll are going to be spoiled. I know I should blog more often, and I'm trying to get better. Maybe that will be my new years resolution next year hehehe. Well today I'm going to show you layouts I made with a new kit by Scraps by Andrea called Back 2 School. It is a fun kit perfect for scrapping all of your school photos, and it is a great mix of colors that will work for boys or girls.

My first layout is Sharla's first grade photo. Doesn't she look cute in that bun! I remember Mom doing our hair with those, and I hated them. But I really love the school elements like the pencil and crayons, they are just too cute.

My second layout is Callie, doing some reading at one of Cole's football games. I won't swear it was study related, but I'm going to say it was just for the fun of it. Isn't the little bookworm cute too!!!

The freebie I created for you is based on the first layout. I took the cluster and put a frame on it for you. I hope you like it, simply click on the preview to download. And as always feel free to leave a comment.

So I recommend you head over to Stuff to Scrap and pick up Back 2 School soon and she even has a matching cardstock pack as well. Not to mention a freebie add-on that you can get on her blog - Scraps by Andrea.

Family Picnic and Freebie

Happy Tuesday all, I hope everyone is having a good week. Me, I'm just trying to survive the heat. Took Mom to the doctor today and the car was registering 116 degrees...which is just plain hot!!!! Well at least it is cool when I'm at my computer...hehehe.

My layout features Cole and Daddy (aka Papa), when Cole was first introduced to ribs. And let me tell you it was love at first site for that boy!!!! Papa had such a great time feeding him. I love the elements in this kit, a great mix of fun things like the grill and normal elements like ribbons and flowers.

Bracket Templates

Happy Thursday all, a quick post to show you a layout I made with Digi-designs by Nicole's newest template set called Bracket Templates. These fabulous templates help make your layouts unique and different and you can change directions of the templates for even more possibilities.

My layout is of Ms. Callie jumping for Sharla and I as we tested our cameras. She was having fun trying to jump and not cover her face. A little later she thought it would be fun to have Sharla photograph her throwing a ball. The last thing said to her before she threw it was don't hit Sharla, and that is exactly what she did, square in the face. I think Sharla liked the jumping pictures more (hehehe).
The template set has four 12 x 12 templates and is on sale this week for 30% off, so make sure you head over to the Stuff to Scrap store and pick them up today!!!!

Rose Garden

Happy Wednesday all, I hope you are having a wonderful week. Today I'm going to show you layouts I created with a kit called Rose Garden and it's coordinating Rose Garden Cardstock. I love the mix of pink, green and brown in this kit, and of course you know me if it has flowers I'm a happy happy girl.

My first layout is of Ms. Ariella and I did it for a scraplift challenge. I loved the felt roses in this kit and could have used them a 100 times, I just had to restrain myself. Plus I really like the mix of patterns in the papers in this kit.
My second layout is Sharla and Cooper. I've scrapped this picture before, it is one of my favorites. I had the layout done on this one and was just looking for a photo and thought this fit it perfectly. I think this is my new favorite layout. I used the matching cardstock for the background, and love the "rough" look to it.
I really enjoyed using this kit and cardstock pack. It is very versatile and will be using it again and again in the future. I think it would make a great addition to your stash, so head over to Stuff to Scrap and pick up Rose Garden and Rose Garden Cardstock soon.

Touch of Red

Happy Thursday all...and day 41 of 100+ temps here in Texas. I don't know about ya'll, but let me just say, anything above 100 is HOT!!!!! I am so so ready for fall. The only good part about the heat is I avoid it by staying inside and scrapping. Which leads me to Touch of Red by Getting Scrappy with Britt, the kit I used for today's layouts. It is a great kit with rich colors and great elements.

My first layout is Cole and Dani. Aren't they cute!!!! I did this for a song lyric challenge and the song was "All you need is love" and I couldn't resist using the repeating "loves". I really love the mix of red, gray and cream.
My second layout is Ms. Ariella, and I have to say she is a real cutie!!! Normally you see baby photos with the pastels, but love her pictures with the gray and red. And you know me, any kit with lots of flowers is my friend.
Well that is is for today, but make sure you head over to Stuff to Scrap and pick up Touch of Red, it will be a great addition to your stash!!!!

My first layout is little Miss Ariella looking super cute. Sharla and I took photos of her for her mommy. I love the all the flowers in the kit they are perfect for clustering.

My second layout is Miss Ariella with her big sissy Angela. It was hard getting a good pictures because Ariella got fussy for her bottle, but I thought this one was cute. And the pink, orange and brown color combo is really great!!!
