Dew Drops Brag Book Blog Train & My First Template Challenge

There are some fun things happening at Pretty Scrappy this month! Be sure to check out the special events for National Scrapbooking Day happening this weekend here.

While you are there, be sure to check out my first-ever template challenge.

I also signed up to participate in the Brag Book blog train with Dew Drops, the collab kit for May from the designers at Pretty Scrapper. Here is my contribution. You can grab it here.

Then head on over to the next person on the list and grab the rest and you should have enough pages for an awesome brag book. Note that we have designers in different time zones so if a page isn't available when you get there, just check back later.

Are We There Yet? Quickpage

Well, that certainly seems like an appropriate title after the evening I had last night. Thanks to mechanical problems, a missing flight crew, a storm, and a tower being struck by lightening my flight that should have arrived home at 9 p.m. last night got me here at about 2 a.m. this morning. But I did make it home safely, albeit exhausted, so I guess I shouldn't complain too much.

I woke up this morning to find a wonderful surprise in my mailbox. I got a RAK (random act of kindness) from designer Donna Duncombe. Isn't the Blessed Be kit awesome? I have some CT stuff to finish up but this is next on my list to play with after I get those done. Thanks, Donna for making my day!

OK - back to "Are We There Yet" . . .I am always looking for a good kid-themed travel kit so when this one by Teri Mayo hit the store at Pretty Scrappy I couldn't resist it.

Have a great weekend!

Retro Spring Layouts

I started playing with Retro Spring this week and couldn't stop! I did three layouts.

About a Boy Quickpage

Miss me???? Things have been a little hectic the last few weeks but hopefully they are starting to return to normal. This past week, I have been playing with a very boyish kit from Designs by Mel. As soon as this showed up in the Pretty Scrappy store, I had my eye on it and was glad to finally get some time to work with it.

Aren't those elements a must-have? You can get the whole About a Boy kit here and right now it is on sale for only $2!

(Sorry, Link Expired.) Remember, the Pretty Scrappy Quickpages are only up for one week so this will be taken down the middle of next week. If you want it for free, you better grab it now.

I decided in order to keep my sanity the last few weeks I need to concentrate on all the beauty that God has created around me and worked some on my nature book.

I used Rock That Robin by Julie.Itis for this.

I used Golden Minikit by Julie.Itis. for this one.

For this one, I used Irelynn by Dani's Delusions.

I haven't gotten too much done in the baby books, but I did get these two layouts (in addition to the one above) done.

This one was done using Little Boy at Play by Julie.Itis.

I used Funk-a-Licious (the April Mega Collab) from Pretty Scrappy to make this one.

Dani's Delusions has just opened a new store at Plain Digital Wrapper! To celebrate, she teamed up with Julie.Itis. for her first exclusive kit there, Retro Spring.

Uniquely adorable, isn't it? I haven't had time to play with it yet, but hope to get some time to do so soon.

Happy Scrappy!
