Sneak Peak of Mousescrappers Design Challenge Blog Hop!

Hi all!

So, I have recently taken on a HUGE challenge! I tried to “design” a kit based on a specific color palette for the Mousescrappers site for their Design Challenge. The challenge ends on Friday, and the resulting kits will NOT be given away, but individual designers may sell them in their stores.

However, at the beginning of August a bunch of us who participated will post little blog freebies. They are, as you may have guessed, Disney themed. I chose princesses as my theme for the palette, and my full kit for the challenge is called Princess Parade. 

I will be joining the blog hop, and posting a little mini kit for all of you!

And just to tease you…..here is a preview of the mini-kit

I hope you like it, and that I did an ok job for my first attempt!

Have fun shopping! These are awesome kits – they can all be used for so many different types of layouts! 

 

I think it’s safe to announce this!

In case you all had figured it our by now….I am officially a proud CT member for

Gingers Scraps N Pixels! http://gingersscrapsnpixels.blogspot.com/ 

A bunch of my layouts here have been using her wonderful kits and she is close to actually launching her store (July 15th)  so that not only will you be able to get her wonderful DAD’s but you’ll also be able to purchase some of her other kits!!! She has some great ones coming up!

I can’t post any of my LO’s from those yet, but I can show you the ones I did for her for her current DAD – Let Freedom Ring and her kit in other stores (check her blogspot page for links) For Those Who Serve.

I really LOVE these two kits! Perfect for this time of year! I can’t wait to scrap our 4th of Juky pics from this year with Let Freedom Ring, and find some of my Father in Law from his military service days for a few pages with For Those Who Serve. Enjoy!

Disneyland!

One of our favorite weekend activities is to go to Disneyland – and we are VERY lucky that we live close enough to go as often as we like! When our daughter was very little and we had just moved here, she would wake from her afternoon nap and say – I go Disneyland, I see Mickey Mouse? and I would quickly text my husband to alert him to our evening activities!!! 🙂

We love everything about Disneyland – it is truly, truly a magical place. The moment you steps through that entrance turnstile, you enter a place where imagination, magic, and your childhood dwells – it is a place like no other!

Of course, being a photographer, I always have a camera on me – usually it’s my BIG one, but occasionally it is just my cell phone – either way, I end up with at least 1 or 2 “memories” that are worth saving, and scrapping. I am a BIG believer in journaling, so most of my layouts contain some journaling – so that someday, my daughter will not go through the issues I have when looking through family photos! She will know who is in the pictures and when and where they were taken!!! I love that part of the “modern era” of digital photography, and computers – but I still like printed pages too!!! 

Anyway – long story short – I have LOTS of layouts of Disneyland – thanks in part to my new addiction with Mousescrappers – http://www.mousescrappers.com/ – so I wanted to share some of them with you.

I have purposefully blurred our daughter’s face as we really prefer that she not be splashed all over the internet – but rest assured – the copies I have are nice and clear! 😉 Anyway – enjoy!!!!
