Sugar Gumdrops quickpage freebie #2

I just love this kit:
Sugar Gumdrops by Wimpychompers.  Isn't it just so cute!  I love all the little gingerbread kids.  I am a sucker for gingerbread elements.  But I didn't use the gingerbread kids this time since I used them on the opposite page. 
I decided to go and use one of AK Designs Stackers Pack 1.  I had to get her buy the store bargains at the end of the year last year, especially since I have loved her designs since she started many years ago.  Of course, because I am me, I forgot to get the remainder of the kits by the end of the year so I missed out on quite a few of her templates but I have almost all her templates so that will last for awhile.  The font I used is Colonna MT.

I am sure most of you are here for the freebie so here it is.  Click on the image or HERE.
I hope you enjoy it!  Have a great day!

Gumdrops quickpage freebie! Yum!

I have been accepted onto another Creative Team.  This time it is Wimpychompers from GingerScraps.  I love her designs.  I am so excited to be part of her team.

Here is her newest kit:
Sugar Gumdrops.  What a cute kit.  I love it!  I am a sucker for anything with Gingerbreads on them.

So here is my first page I made using this kit:

Christmas Eve the boys always get Christmas Eve Pajamas.  They look forward to this every year.  They even say this is our Christmas Tradition that they look forward to.
So here they are enjoying their new pajamas.

In addition to using Sugar Gumdrops, I also used the font Champignon.  I love how it adds a little prettiness to the page. 

Now that I have made a page, I have a quick-page for you.  I hope you like this page.  Enjoy!
Here is the preview.  Just click on it or go HERE.
Thank you for stopping by.  I hope you have a great day!

Cluster Freebie and Daniel's My Little Artist using a new kit by Luv Ewe Designs

Here is my most recent layout of my son.  This is my 11 year old doing what he does best. Draw. He loves to draw. He is always drawing, even when he is hanging out with friends. These are pictures of him drawing a self portrait on the sidewalk that a friend sent me while he was with her. What a sweetie pie he is.

This is the kit I used.  I used the template also that is in this bundle so I didn't make a quick page this time. 
Just Breathe Bundle by Luv Ewe Designs

Here is a little freebie I have made for you.  This time it is a cluster.  You can use it as cluster on top of a paper for a full layout.  This is a full 12x12 page and you can resize to fit your needs.  I hope you enjoy it.  Click the image below or HERE to get your freebie!
Have a fabulous day!

Tis the Season! A bit late! QP for you too!

Okay, well I guess I am goofy because there is a Color Challenge at GingerScraps that I wanted to  participate in this month but I didn't realize that the kits I used were only at Gotta Pixel.  The color is green so here is what would have been my contribution:

Getting ready for the Christmas season was not easy this year.  I finally got a little help from my youngest. Trimming the tree.
I used:
Boughs of Holly Elements by Luv Ewe Designs
Boughs of Holly Torn Papers by Luv Ewe Designs
Boughs of Holly Embossed Papers by Luv Ewe Designs
Boughs of Holly Alphas by Luv Ewe Designs

So, of course, I made a quick page for all of those wonderful scrappers out there that need or want it.  Have fun!
Either click on the image or click HERE.  Have a great day!

Another Freebie-Wordart! Another page!

I finally got another page done.  I had to stay up REALLY late to get it done but I did it!

I wanted to get this page done because I have been thinking about my brother lately.  We lost him this past summer due to complications with two Grand Mal Seizures.   I wish I could have taken more pictures of him at the time but didn't due to the fact I didn't want to invade his privacy or make him feel weird.

I love this page because I finally used real journaling in a page.  This page will help me remember him the way I want to.  Happy and loving!  Wanting to live and wanting to please my mother.  But most of all my little brother that wanted so bad to be what the Lord would want him to be.
The journaling is might bore you but it reads:

What a special day this turned out to be.  Mom and I got to spend the day with Harris and he was so happy.  He loved the shirts that we picked out to wear for him.  He was smiles and even laughter on his part, even though it was hard for him to do so.  His smile still to this day will burn into my soul.  His favorite part was the jewels that was attached to our shirts.  He laid there holding the gems and caressing them.  We all enjoyed the time we got to spend together.  It was one of the last days that I got to spend with him before he died.  I will always cherish this day that we had.

I was looking for a quote that would fit this page perfectly and I finally found this page on MamaNYC.  There are many ideas and quotes here.  Try it out.  Maybe I will make some more word art using a few more of these soon.  If anyone has a request for one of them to be made into word art let me know and I will attempt to.

I used Little Miss Page Kit a collab from Luv Ewe Designs and CathyK Designs

I didn't make a quick page this time but I did save the word art for you.  It is saved at a 300 pixels/inch and a large 9.81"x 8" so you can use it for whatever your project will be (even vinyl).  I hope you like it.
I am trying out so bare with me.  I hope this works.  I have tried to attach the link to the image if you can not get it to work try HERE.

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you have a great day!

A Freebie! A new CT! A new layout!

I have finally decided to get back into digital scrapping again.  I have done a few pages but not really much in the past couple years but I feel the need to start again.

So a couple weeks ago I applied for a Guest CT for Luv Ewe Designs and I made it.  I am so happy.  I love her designs.  I started on January 1st!

Here is my first layout for my new CT position.  I hope you like it!
These are two photos of my mother and I at the hospital visiting my brother. One day we came with the same color of shirt and everyone that saw us had to comment. What is funny is that we don't even look alike but it was nice to feel like her daughter for once. We had so much fun with it that we went to the store and found matching shirts again except this time in my brother's favorite color. It was so nice to see his smiling face when we came in. He loved my mother's attached necklace too.  He laid there and played with the necklace most of the time we were there.

I used Little Miss Page Kit a collab from Luv Ewe Designs and CathyK Designs.  I also used my Pinterest page of Scrapbook Inspiration and found this great post and a wonderful sketch you should try out at Ideas for Scrapbookers by Pam Callaghan.
I also used Birds of Paradise Font on this page.

It has become one of my favorite fonts for script writing.  Unfortunately it doesn't have the numbers but that is okay, I improvised.

Now on to the little give away for today.  I have made this page into a Quick Page for all that is interested.  Here is the preview:
 If I did this correctly, when you click on the image it will take you to the download.  If not, here it is again, just click HERE.

I hope you all enjoy it.  Have a great day!

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!!!!

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.

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

Thank you for stopping by.  I hope you enjoy the QP!  Have a great day!

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!

Contact Me

Hello all! Now that I am getting more and more into creating I would love to see what you are all doing with my templates. Please do not hesitate to email me HERE. Now beware though, I might just put it on my blog so watch out! Also, give me the links to the products you used and I will put it up here too!
