Never Underestimate...

When one of Scrapbook Graphic's AWESOME designers asks the Crew to create some layouts with their products, there are always plenty of volunteers! When NeeNee asks if we can work with her templates - I JUMP! The best layouts I think I have ever made have been created with her templates, and this is one of them...

Thanks for looking!! Run over to SBG and pick up some AWESOMENESS!!

This kit is BRAND SPANKING NEW today!! It's called His Adventure and I must say that Amy Stoffel outdid herself with this one! It's gorgeous!

The layout - my little boy at his 8th Birthday party with the gift he BEGGED for - Pokemon Soul Silver! He was THRILLED!! It was actually from Amanda. (She really does love the little booger!!)

Growing Up

My little boy is growing up WAY too fast! I can't believe he's 8 already! This year his birthday happened to be on Easter, so I have TONS of photos from the whole weekend! This one was actually taken during the Easter portion of the program! (We had his birthday party the day before...)

I'm not supposed to be normal....

The Geek has a new kit out today...Wildflower Whimsy - and I totally love it! I made this layout with's so nice of my daughter to provide me with all these 'interesting" pictures!!

Credits go to:
I even did a second one!! Okay - it was sort of a cheat! LOL I had to make an ad for our Head Geek (after all, I am the Ad Geek) and figured why not turn the base of the ad into something I could use! And here it is...

Berry Sweet Designs

I am one of the newest CT members for BERRY SWEET DESIGNS!! Yay me!! Both of these layouts were made using her templates! You might notice this one looks suspiciously like an ad I did for Fishbowl Designs! I figured I did all that work, may as well make a layout too!

Credits go to:
Totally random fact - I love hot air balloons! So when I saw this kit for Sir Scrapalot - I knew it had to be mine!

Thanks for stopping by!! I am glad you took a moment of your day to peek here! :)

Tallula Moon

I am thrilled to tell you I am now a part of the TALULLA MOON CREATIVE TEAM!!! So - I have a couple of layouts to show you!

My little boy just discovered the Sock Monkey! Very old I know - but he doesn't and he thinks it's GREAT!! I was thrilled to find this kit to make the layout with!

Credits go to:
This layout was made of my darling children on my son's 8th Birthday! It's really nice to see brotherly-sisterly love once in a while, instead of sibling rivalry.

That's it for this post! Stop my for more tomorrow!!

Time to Party!

Devin's birthday this year fell on Easter. Holiday weekends are busy enough but then to add a birthday party to it - it's CHAOS!! Well, we did it anyway. Unfortunately, it's tough to get people together these days, but from the look of this layout, we had fun anyway!!

My Wish

Hey all you peeps out there in DigiLand! How goes it today?

I realized as I look through my blog that I seem to do MANY more pages of my daughter than my son...probably because the boy doesn't like to let me take pictures! Anyway, I decided to try to put forth more effort for "Devin" pages. So here is my boy :)

I am starting to use song lyrics on my pages more, such as this one. I think somebody else recorded it first, but I love "My Wish" by Rascal Flatts, and I finally thought to use it on a layout.

Credits go to:
As I look at these credits, funny enough - Unstoppable is also a Rascal Flatts song. Just a little fun fact I figured I would throw in there...obviously I am just a bit *random* tonight!

As always, thanks for stopping by.

Imagination *Not* Included

Did you stop by the SBG blog yesterday? It was PLAY DAY! And yesterday's PlayDay was for ONE LITTLE BIRD, our guest designer this month! This is my second layout using her CREATOR kit. If you would like to see the first one, you can find it HERE.

That picture is my little boy - he turned 8 this past weekend! Happy Birthday Devin - I love you!

Speed Scrap #210

My MARVELOUS friend Melissa (profiler_mar) hosted her first Speed Scrap over at Scrap Matters and I was a "required" participant. I did not just one, but TWO layouts using her instructions (which were awesome, but don't tell her I said so!)

This one uses Captivated Visions VERY CHERRY kit. (She is quickly becoming one of my favorite designers). The word art is from ELEGANT WORD ART by Bethany - now Studio Bethany! It is a template, but I don't remember whose...sorry to whoever's template it is!

The second one, also using an unknown template...(yes, I need to keep better track of that) uses CLEMENTINE by ScrapKitchen Designs and again word art by STUDIO BETHANY.

I truly LOVE how both of these layouts came out - they're uniquely different, yet used the same set of instructions!

Daffodil Dreams

Have you seen it?!?!? Have you seen the BEAUTIFUL new kit by Fishbowl Designs yet? No? What to heck are you waiting for? Run on over to the Fishbowl Designs Store over at Sunshine Studio Scraps and take a peek at the full thing! It's GORGEOUS! It's called DAFFODIL DREAMS and I am TOTALLY in love with it!

This is the first layout I made with it, but there will definitely be more to come!! The template is from A+ Designs.

More to see tomorrow! Be sure to stop by!

One Little Bird....

is the APRIL GUEST DESIGNER over at SCRAPBOOK GRAPHICS!! She has this gorgeous kit in the store called CREATOR and it has a matching ALPHA (you should know by now how much I LOVE alphas!!)

I made this layout with it using a WM2 Freebie template that I got over at Scrap Matters. Loving that way this layout came out. I also love that Peppermint (the designer behind OLB) works with a minimalist mindset!

This means that you need to RUN over to SBG and check out what she has in the store!! You WON'T be disappointed!!

I can honestly say when this layout was made, I made it using Studio Birgit's new kit - Awaken - available as Scrapbook Graphics! However, since then, and starting officially today, we have a new Studio Girl - STUDIO BETHANY!!! I have always been a fan of Elegant WordArt by Bethany and I am THRILLED that she is now going to be part of ScrapbookGraphics!

As always, thanks for stopping by!
