QP Freebie and a fun challenge at SDD

Hello all!  I hope all things are going well with you.  I have taken a few weeks off of scrapping because I was busy with Halloween and 7 busy boys.

This month Vicki from Dana's Footprint Designs is hosting the first half of the Bird Cage Challenge at Scrappity-Doo-Dah.  She has a wonderful kit she is using for it too.  Here is the Mini you get for free:

Isn't that pretty?  I think it is.  The hard part is using all the pink in it but I did it! 
The awesome part is that Vicki also made a coordinating kit called Sweet Elegance that is just so stunning and you have got to try it!  It is gorgeous!  I LOVE the actual birdcage in this kit!  The flowers are gorgeous and the whole kit is just so fun, it just keeps going on and on and on!  Check it out if you can!

So having boys you would think it is practically impossible to do something with this right?  Wrong!  I did it!  I made a page using all the papers and elements from the mini (which is the challenge), and I used a lot of elements from the big kit too!  Look at what I did:

I thought it turned out cute!  That little stinker!  He just loves my hats.  This is my gardening hat that he just has to play with all the time.  

Oh, and one more thing.  I used a template by Dagi's Temp-tations called Color Me Phototastic Vol. 1 to make this page and the QP below so check it out:

So I thought since I just love how this page turned out I had to share it with you too so......
Here you go girls (and maybe guys?), a quickpage for you to use:
Either click on the image above or HERE to get your QP!

Enjoy and have a great day!!!!

Freebie with Dana's Footprint's new kit Mr. Fix It!

Hello everyone!  I hope all is well with you.  We have something fun for today.  It is a small little Blog Train.  I hope you are able to get to all the stops on this one.  It should be fun.

So I am part of another Blog Train.  This time it is for the Creative Team members for Dana's Footprint Digital Designs.  You can check out the beginning of the train at her blog HERE.  If you came from EllyMae's blog that is great, you are on the right train!  Toot toot!

This kit is so cute.  It is so boyish that I had to have it.  It is called Mr. Fix It by Dana's Footprint.

See isn't it so cute.  I love the colors too.  I adore the hammer and little tools in this kit.  So of course I had to make a layout with it.

These are my three youngest helping me put up some cabinets in my craft room.  They are having so much fun.  They are my little Handymen.  

So I decided to share with you this QP using this kit.  What do you think?  I hope you like it.  

Click the above picture to download or HERE.

To finish the blog train please go to Dana's Footprint Facebook Fanpage to pick up the final part of this blog train.  Have a fant-abulous day!

Layouts, LOTD and a Pool Party Palooza QP freebie!

I am on a roll..... I have gotten quite a few layouts done this week.  It is a miracle upon miracles.  I just have been lazy around the house to make up for it.  Ha ha!  And I got Layout of the Day at Scrappity-Doo-Dah!  I am so excited.  It has been years since I have gotten such an honor!

Here are my layouts I have finished this week so far:
The following layouts were made using
Travis in the Pool
This is my 6th son Travis.  He is getting to be such a big boy and is swimming by himself this year.  
Paddle Surfing
This is my 4th son taking my baby paddle surfing around the pool.
I'm a Big Boy Now!
Here is my baby becoming a big boy.  He didn't like the pool at the beginning of the summer now he just wants to spend all day out there.  He gets his brothers and father to get him out there and he even swims by himself (with the vest of coarse!).
This layout I made into a QP for you.  You will find it at the end of this post.
Pool Fun with Dad
Here are the little boys enjoying the pool with Dad!
The next two layouts were made using:
My Little Star by Daybreak Scraps
Tent Camping
This is the one that made LOTD at Scrappity-Doo-Dah!  I am so excited! This was the first night on our trip at Pine Flats Lake.
Pine Flats
This is the view from the road to Pine Flats Lake.  My journaling is about the day up to us leaving and the challenges we faced.
Now here is the QP I made for you using Daybreak Scraps' Pool Party Palooza

A new layout for a new CT!

It has been so long since I have blogged and I can not even believe how long it has been.  So much has happened in the past 22 months.  My boys are getting bigger that is for sure. We are looking forward to the end of summer here in California.  Ha ha!  Well, at least school wise.  Just a week left for some and 3 weeks left for the rest.  I really do have mixed feelings about that.  I have been enjoying the relaxing (no driving for 3 hours a day) summer break.  

I have not scrapped in a while since the boys keep me busy but I am trying to take some time to myself now and again.  I finally finished a page today.  It was a miracle.  Here it is:
This is my third son before and after a haircut.  It took me a while to get him to get a haircut but now it is done!  Well, this was April but you get the gist!  
Kit used: Grandma's Apple Pie Bundle by Daybreak Scraps

I had so much fun with this kit.  Here is what is in the bundle.  You can purchase them separately but the bundle is a great deal!  It even has recipe cards! 

Now the exciting news!  Daybreak Scraps blog has a cute little freebie for you, including a great tutorial on how to make this cute word art.  Hurry and jump over to her blog to get the freebie.  Click on the image below to be taken over to her blog:

A new layout and wordart freebie

I have done a layout for the Digitalscrapbookpages challenge He Said, She Said Challenge. This is what I came up with. I just wanted to share it with you at this time. I have more layouts to share but I will do that later.

I loved this quote for the He Said, She Said Challenge here at Digitals. I had to do this quote with my husband and my youngest son. I will put this wordart up on my blog if anyone wants it.

Cameron's Classic Charm in Chocolate and Sky by Shawn Walter; fonts: CaramelNuggets, Castellar

So here is the word art if anyone would like it:

Some Scout Camp layouts

Here are some layouts I have done for Scout Camp this past summer.
I have used a great kit called Love of Fishing by Karens Scraps and Graphics.

Here are the layouts:
This is the boys at scout camp sleeping outside. The journaling says it all. Basically they wanted to sleep together outside so they did.

Those boys were so funny! I love how they just had to sleep outside even though they were warned about animals and such.

One more thing I did with this kit was I made a recipe page for my book. This was made for the Cookin' Recipe Challenge at Digi Scrap Station. Come over and join in on the fun and receive some great recipes for your own cookbook!

This recipe was just delicious just like it says. I enjoyed this soup I am sure I will be making it a lot this winter!

Hello I am back with a freebie

Hello all! Yes, it has been quite some time hasn't it. I am so sorry about that. I actually tried to post something a few months ago but I forgot to finish the post. I will get that template up later.

In the past year and a half I have had a baby and tried to keep up with him and my other 6 boys. Yes, 7 in all! I am TIRED! Phew! My oldest is 14 right now and he is just as tiring as my 9 month old. I am sure you all know what I mean. Ha ha!
This is my baby and my 3 year old. What a pill!

Anyhow, I was so sick with the pregnancy and have also been having some complications since having him. I am ready to take some sanity time for myself and get back into scrapping. I thought the perfect thing to get me going would be just to jump right back in and continue making some templates.

Anyhow, enough about me and my wonderful little family. I have some goodies for you. I thought I would share with you what I have made. I have some wordart for you and I have a scrapping template for you. I hope you enjoy them. First I wanted to share with you what I have done with them. Here goes.
This isn't with my template but this is a card I made with the same kit I used for all of my layouts I have done here. At Scrappindigikreations they have a few challenges and one of them is a card challenge. SammyD even has a great card template to use if you want. Anyhow, this is what I have made using the template provided with the challenge and this wonderful kit.

The kit I have used for all of the layouts and the card is Tide of Life by SammyD Kreations . Isn't it a wonderful kit. I am going to have get some more layouts done with it.

Here is a layout of my 12 year old. At the end of the last school year he finally allowed me to cut his hair. We had a deal that after the last day of school I could cut it as short as I wanted. Yay! I was so happy to finally get rid of all that extra hair.

Here is my next layout with my 3 year old. He wanted to get his hair cut too. He loves getting his hair cut so here he is showing it off.

These are some pictures of my baby and my 3 year old. They are always together playing and having fun, even when the baby is in the highchair. I found this quote on wordsimaged blog. Thank you for such great wordart hun!

This layout was of some of my boys enjoying some quiche I made. I don't normally make this type of thing but they enjoyed it until it was all gone.

This was the layout I made the word art for. I think it is funny myself. Men eating quiche and asking for more. FUNNY!!! Hahahahahaha!

Here is my new template.
pick up the 12x12 HERE
pick up the 8 1/2 x 11 HERE

To get this wordart please go HERE to get it.

As always I would LOVE to see what you do with my templates. Please send me a link to your blog or gallery so I can come and comment or even put your results on my blog here! Thanks bunches all!

Sharing some layouts with a Freebie Quickpage!

First this is the layout I have done with the quickpage that is available below. I hope you enjoy it!

It has been so difficult with this pregnancy to get much done. The last few days I have felt good enough to get on my laptop. Very shocking for me.

I have been on bedrest for the past few days due to spotting and cramps. The doctor says that the baby is okay right now but that I am to keep off my feet until the spotting and cramps stop. I have to say it is nice but now I am going stir crazy.

We had to postpone Jonny's baptism which I am very sad about but I really do want to be there. My friend took him out to ice cream so he felt better about it. Thanks Angela!

Now a huge surprise for me. Three of my very close friends showed up at my home this morning (they are still here), and are cleaning my house for me. Can you believe it? I can't! I have told everyone to leave me alone and we will be okay. Dang it! Don't they listen? I hate having people in my house when I have been on bedrest and doing nothing. (I do appreciate my friends and thank you very much to them. I just get embarressed)

What was really shocking is that my husband has been working his tail off cleaning in the kitchen. I think he now realizes why it is never finished. As soon as you get close to being done you have to cook or feed the kids again! Gee I wonder why a kitchen is never clean with 6 boys?

These first few pages I have done are with DeDe Smith's great new kit Summer Smilez by DeDe Smith which will be the give free daily download at the end of this month over at Digitals.

I have also used Summer Smilez Too by DeDe Smith that is at the store now. I have also used the wordart Pool time fun by elegantwordart2 by Bethany.

This first page is of Jonny,Daniel, and Matthew being funny with expressions while enjoying our pool in April when it was warm. A lot warmer than it is now!

Here is my son Michael making a splash in the pool in April and enjoying himself to the fullest. Thank goodness they enjoyed it then because it is too cold now that it is almost summer. How funny!

This is my silly boy Daniel. He loves to make silly faces that he calls scary faces.

Now here is the kit I have used for today's quickpage freebie. It is called Graceful Days by Lisa Minor. Graceful days contains:9-12x12 papers, 1 border,4 bows, 2 square brads, 1 oval brad, 1 branch-flowered element, 1 bordered folded paper, 1 fence, 3 flowers,4 frames, 1 rope and 1 journal strip.
