PDW News, Layouts, Challenges and a Coupon

My poor neglected blog. Sigh. Is anyone still reading this? ;P I am failing miserably in social media these days with no good explanation. So to make up for it, here is a coupon for 50 percent off for any purchase of $3.00 or more. Use coupon code: BlogFan710

We have lots of fun things going on at Plain Digital Wrapper this month for our pool party. This week was a challenge to make some waves and scrap outside of our normal style. So I took the dive and did a fantasy layout. I am intrigued by fantasy layouts but they have never really been my style. I am more of memory scrapper, I guess. Although it was fun to try something new, I was quickly reminded of the real reason I avoid fantasy layouts, I hate extractions (and I even have Topaz Remask which is supposed to make it easier). Does it get easier with practice?

I decided to do a pirate scene since I took the kids on a Pirate Adventure last weekend so had the perfect photos. This was originally a picture of my son shooting the water canon at Stinky Pirate Pete. I used Pirate's Adventure by a new designer at Deviant Scrap, High Four Designs.

Overall, I think I like it. I am still not convinced it has a enough stuff on it though. It feels a little plain to me.

I have been out of town the last two weekends so have missed the Beach Blanket Bingo chats but am hoping to make it tonight. Here is my first digi bingo card. I used Circus by Southern Creek Designs.

 Chats start at 10 p.m. EST and we would love to have you stop by and join us. There will be prizes for the first person to bingo and the first person to do a cover-all. You can find the Bingo Card template and word list here.

Last week my Mom was visiting and the week-ended with my three-year old in a full arm cast so there wasn't much time for scrapping and this week I spent most of the week straring at blank page trying to come up with an idea for a fantasy page. (Hint: It helps to have the right kit to start with. Once I found that, thanks to a search at DST last night, things went much smoother.) I only got one other new layout done this week for the chat challenge at Scrapbook Graphics. The challenge was to scrap your favorite song title. I used Nostalgia by Julie. It is. for this.

Be sure to stop by Julie's blog for a coordinating mini freebie this week!

Hope to see you around the pool at PDW!

Free Template and a 50 percent off sale!

I am having a 50 percent off sale for my birthday this week and NSD this weekend. Plus I have this free template for you too! This is a sampling from my Candy Wrappers: Flavor E Template pack that will be released on Friday. You can download it here.

If you like the circle theme in your layouts, then be sure to check out the Scraplift Challenge I am hosting over at PDW this month. We are scraplifting an awesome circle-themed layout by LDHOriginals. There is still time to participate and you even get a posting bonus if you do.

Here is the layout I did for the challenge using Well Worn by Julie. It is.
I released some double page templates a couple of weeks ago but don't think I ever posted them here.
This weekend, I played with the new kit The Way You Look by Sir Scrapalot Designs. I needed to work on my daughter's book but couldn't bring myself to do another pink girlie layout at the moment so this kit was the perfect inspiration.

We were on a camping/boating vacation trip with several friends from church/work when I captured our friend Bill snuggling with baby Alexis.

I need to blog, I need to blog, I need to blog . . .

That is what I keep telling myself. I had one crazy, whirlwind of a March with a move and finally selling our house after it being on the market for over two years, no Internet for three weeks because of said move and then a huge project at work. OK, so that is my excuse for March, yet it is now mid-April. Thinking. . .thinking. . . thinking. . .yep, fresh out of excuses for April. Truthfully, I have been in a little bit of a funk and feeling unoriginal in my scrapping and thus in my designing. Scrapping is stress release for me so I continued to scrap despite my feelings. I finished this one particular layout that I wasn't feeling all that crazy about because I had this "have I done this before?" feeling but I posted it anyway. Imagine my suprise when the kit designer e-mailed me telling me how much she loved it. So apparently, it wasn't my scrapping that is the issue but my taste. :) After some more thought, I think maybe I just needed a change of pace. I have pretty much only been scrapping baby pictures of my daughter because I am trying to get her 300+ baby book done by the end of this year. So I opened up my nature albums I am working on and played around in the landscape one and actually created a layout I like. So, I am curious, have you ever found yourself in a scrapping rut? What do you do when you find yourself in this sitution?

I have a Facebook Fan Page now and a special offer for my blog readers. If you join my fan page and post a comment on my wall and answer the question above about how you get out of a scrapping rut by Saturday April 24, I will send you a GC for $5 to my store. (If you only fan the page and don't leave a comment, you will still get a GC for $3 but you have to do that by the end of this weekend).

OK, enough rambling . . .Here are a few things I have scrapped since my last post.

Leaves from French Quarter by Julie. It is., everything else from Prism by Julie. It is.

Happy creating!
