ADSR 5 - More

Here are the next couple of challenges.....

Challenge 4: ATC cards - I had to do one about someone/something I love and one about my partner. Obviously Melissa had to do the same. We had to post them as ONE layout, so here are all four of them:

Challenge 5 was to use 6 elements out of a list of 12 - plus chocolate!! Here's my layout - the kit is Amy Stoffel's MMMM MILK and is available over at Scrap Orchard. The alpha is GOTTA NICKEL by Studio Rosey Posey.

The elements I was required to use are: tag, alpha, flower, staple, 2 papers, button & ribbon/string. I used 7 just in case!

And that's it for this post! I have a few more layouts coming out this week, so be sure to come back and check them out!

Everyday Love!

Hey everybody! I am not going to tell you much about what I am showing you today...however, if you run over to the STUDIO MATTERS blog over at SCRAPBOOKGRAPHICS, you will find out a LOT more about this project!

I will tell you that the kit is HAVE I TOLD YOU LATELY by STUDIO ROSEY POSEY.

I will tell you that my theory behind the post is to show the people you love that you love them EVERYDAY - not just on Valentine's Day!

So take a hop over to Studio Rosey Posey and pick up this marvelous kit and create a set of your own! Thanks for stopping by!!

Okay - so my friend Melissa and I signed up for the Amazing Digi-Scrap race. So the first layout was to lift your partner's layout, as well as having a picture of your partner and it had to be about your partner! They called it EASY! LOL

Anyway, Melissa and I decided to coordinate, so here are our layouts for the first challenge...

Here's mine - and yes those are her feet!! They said it could be anything - even feet - as long as it was a picture of your partner. THIS is the layout I lifted.

I used WM2's BEACH BUM kit and you can find it over at Scrap Matters.

Here's Melissa's layout - using my feet! She used kit's from Kasia - which are available over at the Shabby Pickle. She lifted THIS layout of mine.

And that's our first challenge!! You will be seeing more of these at the race continues!!

New Stuff from my Creative Teams!

I have a bunch of new stuff to show you today! I am probably late on some of it, but when the computer crashed, it took a while to get back up and running again!!

This first one is all AMY STOFFEL! She has NEW PAGE STARTER TEMPLATES in her store and I totally LOVE them!! You should know by now that I really haven't met a template I didn't like! LOL

This also uses her new kit called SUGAR PIE! It has the most adorable elements in it!! It's available over at Scrap Orchard.

This next layout is also a PAGE STARTER TEMPLATE from Amy! The kit is called CLOSE TO THE EDGE by Shawna Clingerman and is available over at Sweet Shoppe.

This next one uses a template by Haynay Designs. The kit, however, is from FISHBOWL DESIGNS! It's called GRUNGY KIND OF LOVE and is available over at Sunshine Studio. I actually worked on this as a one kit call and was THRILLED when Anne asked be to be part of her Creative Team!!! WOOOO HOOOOO!!!! So you will be seeing more stuff from the Fishbowl!!

I love this layout!! This is one of those pictures of my daughter - she finally just smiled for me! LOL This kit is from SPINKY DINK SCRAPS! It's a collab with Misty O'Brien and is called EVERYDAY HAPPENINGS! The template is by Bella Gypsy (love her templates too!!) and both are available at Elemental Scraps!

Last, but certainly not least, is this layout. It uses both template and kit from Amanda Heimann. The template is from her YEAR IN REVIEW collection and the kit is called GLORY DAYS. I think both were perfect for this layout of Amanda & Jimmy showing off their New England Patriot jerseys!

Well...that's it for this post! Will be back with more soon! Thanks for stopping by!

Okay - so the computer crashed....I have finally recovered my photos and layouts (THANKS SCOTT!!! <-----he's my brother). So...I have photos - I scrap!! Here's what I have to show you today. These were all pretty much for fun! These first two, however, use templates for the brand new STUDIO NEE NEE over at Scrapbook Graphics - I have already told her that I may never scrap again without using her templates!! They are TOTALLY AWESOME so if you haven't gotten any yet, RUN RUN RUN!!!

The kit on this is Mariposa by Julie Billingsley - she is fast becoming one of my favorite designers.

This one uses Fee Jardine's Crazy 4 You - available at the Sweet Shoppe.

This last one uses Julie Billingsley's Love of My Life! Perfect for the guys in your life! I will have to get back to you on the owner of that template! LOL

And that's all my fun stuff!! Will try to be back tomorrow with some of the CT stuff!!
