Hey Handsome

Here is a fun layout I did of my son the day of his purple belt karate test. We had a bonfire at my mom's house and had smores to celebrate a job well done. Afterwards John and James were messing around in the front yard. James grabbed the camera while John did hand stands.
I used the kit, Hey Handsome by Unforgettable Moments.

Feeding Frenzy and a FREEBIE!!

I have a new kit out today. Actually it is an AWESOME collab with Mommy Me Time Scrapper. She did Feeding Frenzy Safari and I did Feeding Frenzy Petting Zoo.
There is a super fun drive through park that my kids (and I) love. Buffalo, llama, deer, goats, giraffe, zebras and more come up to the window of your car and you can feed them carrots or you can feed them out of a cup. We especially like petting and feeding the buffalo. They have lots of different types of animals. You can ride a camel, watch a pig race and so much more. This place was the inspiration for my part of the kit. I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed putting it together.
Here is a preview of my part...
and here is a preview of Feeding Frenzy Safari by Mommy Me Time Scrapper...
Isn't it awesome, her part is huge...she also did these awesome alphas...
I will be back tomorrow with some inspiring layouts and another freebie, but for now here is a free little add on. Photobucket
Enjoy, make sure you stop back by tomorrow and don't forget to check out MMTS blog, she has a great freebie addition to her kit. If it is not available yet be patient but keep checking :)

Freebie Correction

I just realized that the freebie frame offered a few posts back is not the right file. Somehow I got a jpg file in there instead of a png. So, the link contains the corrected file. I am so sorry for the inconvenience. Preview is linked. Photobucket

New Kit...Black Belt...plus another FREEBIE!!

Today I have a new kit for you to check out! John and James, two of my sons, are taking karate. They absolutely love it and are doing quite well. They are very involved in tournaments, demo teams, and whatever else is going on at the dojo. I have so many pictures and haven't come across a kit that I love that included all I needed like trophies and medals. (I am not saying there aren't any out there, just that I haven't come across them).
Anyway, I decided I needed to make one. I started months ago and just couldn't get inspired. I picked it up again this month and this just flowed together. My boy's also do weapons so I included a bo staff and nunchaku.
I am also working on a big add on that will have all the belt colors that are included in my son's style (white, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple, brown and black). I know red is also a popular color so I will include that one as well. On to the new kit... Photobucket Black Belt will be 40% off through June 3rd!
Fun, huh!
Here are a couple layouts I did. This particular tournament my son, James, did a fabulous job. He won several first places. The first layout is James and John doing a synchronized Kata. They won first place. The second layout is James sparring. He won first place in that as well. Photobucket Photobucket Here is a layout by one of my CT members, Chicka... Photobucket I also have a freebie for you...a bragbook page. Photobucket

Cherish and a Freebie!

Adriana's Cafe just released a new kit! It is a super fun, girly kit called Cherish. Photobucket I made a Mother's Day card front and used it in Sunday School on Mother's Day. I let the kids glue them to a half piece of pink card stock folded into a card. They wrote a sweet note inside and gave them to their moms for Mother's Day. Photobucket I also made this layout of my daughter coloring at a restaurant on one of our girl's nights. Photobucket And now for your freebie... I put together this simple frame cluster for you, enjoy! Photobucket

I recently was able to play with a super kit called Lazy Day by Sugar Kissed Designs.
Here is a preview of the kit's elements...

Using this kit, I made a wallet sized bank register for my son. He now has
an online bank account and needed a way to keep track of how much money he


And now, I have a gift for you!
It was requested that I make a template available for this so I did.
It is a little different than my original. I didn't want to take away from the hard work that I am sure went into the fabulous elements, shapes, and alpha in the Lazy Day kit.
So... here it is... the preview is linked to the download.
The template is a psd file. If you need it saved a different way let me know and I will see what I can do.
I would love to see what you come up with using this template.

I love to find ways to use all my scrapbooking kits for more than just layouts. I have joined a couple hybrid creative teams. This is a project I did for some of the designers over at Ginger Scraps. I used several kits from the March buffet at Ginger Scraps which you can find HERE.
The parts I used are...
Reading Room Elements by Craft-tastrophic
The Reading Room : papers by Marie H designs
Reading Room Patterns and elements by Sherry Ferguson
Reading Room Element Pack and Papers by Luv Ewe Designs

This is my first try at using Mod Podge. It is definitely not perfect, but turned out pretty good.
