Disney MouseScrapper’s September Blog Train – Sneak Peak!

Hi all!

I just participated in the most recent MouseScrappers Designer Challenge, and as always, they are planning a blogtrain for freebie mini-kits/gifts/etc. – So, though you cannot get the WHOLE kit – unless an individual puts it in their store, you might get lucky and get a freebie from the blog train. Our theme this time was ‘Nautical’ and along with my kit, I made a free mini-kit, which will be posted here on Friday, September 6th, but I wanted to share a little sneak peak with you now….so here it is…… I hope you enjoy it!



Best Day EVER!!!

Other than my wedding day, one of the best days EVER was the day we received our referral paperwork for our beautiful daughter. She was adopted from S. Korea. We got her referral information when she was about 3 months old – and those pictures are the first of many, but the beginning of the most amazing journey of my life – becoming a Mommy!!

I scrapped this page using ‘Bundle of Joy’ by Touched by a Butterfly. You can purchase the kit here – http://tinyurl.com/k46rg3s It is such a sweet kit, great for baby girls or boys and for MANY occasions! 

Anyway – I love looking at these pictures, and I have scrapped a similar page before – but just KNEW I needed to use this kit for these VERY special pictures!


Summertime Fun!!!

This was a really fun kit to work with! Each year, my husband’s company has a family picnic in the summer. It is ALWAYS a lot of fun, and the last couple of years they have had the picnic at the County Faire. It’s been a very different venue, but was GREAT for doing this LO!

You can find Touched By a Butterfly’s Kit – Carnival Fun here – 


Anyway – here is my page! Enjoy!


Dog Days of Summer!

And my latest from GInger’s Scraps -n- Pixels, Dog Days of Summer Kit – 


I don’t have a doggy of my own – so I borrowed pictures of my friends dog, Pippin. He is a real sweetheart. I had a lot of fun making this page!


Love these Pages!

This is such a gorgeous kit, it is called Sea Swept  – I couldn’t wait to use it! Thank you so much Ginger – for the opportunity to make these great LO’s using your beautiful kit!

You can find the kit here – http://gingersscrapsnpixels.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=67&products_id=40

And here are my pages – I am pretty proud of how pretty these turned out!



I am SOOO excited! I have been asked by another amazing designer to join her Creative Team, and I have accepted!  She is known as Touched By a Butterfly and I just love her work! I am really thrilled to have 2 wonderful designers to “work” for now!

And to give you an idea of her work – my first LO for her is using a super sweet kit called Doctor’s Visit – which you can purchase here:


And here is my first page!


LOVE These Layouts!
