New Houseblend & 12 days of Christmas event!

Happy Monday everyone, I hope you had a great weekend. I wanted to share with you a new collab from 9th & Bloom called Candy Cane Lane. I loved this kit, the papers are fabulous and I had a hard time deciding which to even use to make my first page. I know I will be coming back to this kit a lot with holiday photos.

Here is a page I made with the kit. I also used Sidekicks Pack No. 18 by Fizzy Pop for the template.

The journaling reads:
I know, as the years pass, you will not likely have many memories of these first few holiday seasons.

I however will not forget these wonderful years. The excitement of small things, shiny and new, gives
you a thrill I have never seen in you before. The shear joy, is contagious. Your eyes twinkle and shine so bright.

I hope that spark never fades for you. I hope that every holiday is always this full of joy. I hope this for you, as you let me see them through your eyes. For me it is like seeing them for the first time. Shiny and New!
Don't forget to check out 9th & Bloom each day from the 13th to the 24th, they will be having freebies and sales each day! The first day is the Candy Cane Lane is 50% off! Check it out!

Have a wonderful week!

New Release day @ 9th & Bloom!

I love Fridays, not just because it is the end of a work week for me but also to check out all the new releases at 9th & Bloom. I worked with a new kit by Alissa Jones called A Hairy Tale. This kit has some Tangle references to it but also works great as a first hair cut kit or just for pages about all things hair related.
And here is a page I did with it, it is all about Lauryn's hair.
Have a wonderful weekend!

I have the sicks

Bleh, I wanted to post a quick note, I have been very sick since Monday night with a bouncing fever, and body pain that was insane. You know that body pain that even your hair hurts to brush, yeah that was me. I have been pretty much asleep since Monday night. I went to urgent care today and they drew blood, they were able to tell me my white count was extremely high and they are testing for a staph infection. I had one when I was about 19 and that was the last time I had a bouncing temp like this.

So I am really behind with everything, ugh! I have to get the grandparent's book finished in days. I have a lot to do, no joke. I hope everyone elses Holiday season started off better then mine!

New Releases at 9th & Bloom

Good morning and Happy Friday! Woohoo I am so happy to have this work week over with, it has been a total test of stamina. On a happier note I am excited to show off some of the new releases today.
First up is Believe by Damayanti Studio, this kit also includes 4 free Qps! I loved working with this kit, the papers are fun and full of potential and the elements are amazing and can be not only used for holiday pics but everday images as well. The word art is great too and adds that specail touch to your pages.
My page of Lauryn is her in her holiday dress from 2008, we were getting ready to go see santa.

I also used a template for that page. Fizzy Pop's Sidekicks Pack No. 17 is an awsome pack of templates. Totally easy to use and full of lots of great options.

Lastly but certainly not the least is a Fab kit from By Becca called Magic Moments (she also has a bundle pack for this kit) This is a wonderful holiday kit and it uses some different colors that you don't see often, which I think makes it quite unique and interesting.
Here is the page I did with the kit:
Have a wonderful weekend!

New Templates by Wendyzine Scraps!

Wendy has released some fantastic templates : Templates:Lift it {Anna} I made two pages with her templates last night and I loved them. First they were very easy to use and the pages just came together so easily and that was exciting. I sometimes struggle with templates but not with theses at all. Here are the pages I did with Lauryn's fall photos:

If I don't get another update done this weekend, have a wonderful and safe Halloween!

Back with lots to show!

Sorry for being away for so long, I had some issues with this blog and thought I was going to have to rebuild. Thankfully I got the problem solved and off we go again!

The first thing I wanted to share is that I have been accepted to 2 new CTs. I am now working on Wendyzine Scraps at Scrapbookgraphics. I am really excited to be helping with action testing and template LOs. Testing is right up my alley with my professional job as well as other hobbies. The second is that I have been accepted onto Marta Scraps at After 5. I adore Marta's kits and I am so excited to join her team.

I also have been busy with my own pages and scrapping. I am so proud to have won a competition at this last month. Lorie Davison's Fall LO challenge had so many beautiful and amazing LOs, I was lucky enough to be selected as the winner with this LO.

Here is a companion page of Jacob I did as well, which I adore.

Wow so busy

I have a new kit to show you from Un-Leashed Scraps. It is darling and I had a great time working with it. I will get that posted tomorrow to show you.

Things have been soooo busy this last few weeks, vacation to Iowa, which was a 1200 mile drive with a 3 year old and a 22 month old....omg. Then lots of running around, Lauryn's birthday, some remodeling work on the house.........Just one thing after another really. I did get Lauryn enrolled in pre-school today, she starts September 13th and I am so thrilled for her. We didn't think she was going to be able to attend due to some bad information given to me and my husband. We were told she couldn't' start @ 3 she had to be 4. Well they told us that was everywhere no one would take her. Well after some digging and some luck we came across the truth and were lucky enough to find a place that had a couple of spots left! So she is going 3 days a week and one of the days she gets swimming lessons + class included in the program. I am so happy with that too.

We are also getting so help for our son, he is still not talking much. Just a few words here and there. I knew it was going to happen if a verbal explosion didn't take place and he is 2 next month and while he has had a bit of an explosion in other areas. His patients and concentration are a ton better, he can set with a matching game or books for 30 minutes easily and have a great time. He is trying to count and make the letter sounds of the alphabet. Unfortunately he can't get the letters out. I can only hope with some assistance that verbal will explode and take off.

Anyway, I just wanted to give a quick update and let you know I will be back tomorrow with a new kit to show you all.

Un rosso by Mika Designs!

Mika Designs new kit "Un rosso" is out today. This kit is full of beautiful elements and papers. I used it for some pages of both Lauryn and Jacob. With all the red it works well for holiday pics or even V-day pics. It also has enough neutral that it works for boys or girls, which is a nice plus.

Here are a couple of pages I did with it. The first one is a holiday pic of Lauryn that I just love.

This second one is of Jacob, I always love his expression in this picture.
