The suspense is killin’ me!

I am sitting here looking through the gallery at GingerScraps as I am updating this blog and I am seeing some of the most creative layouts that I have seen in quite some time!  I finished my layout and posted it in the gallery last night, now I am just waiting to be able to vote and find out who is going on to round 4!  The suspense is killing me!  It always does!  This is the worst part of being in a contest like this.   I have to choose only 6 layouts  to vote for and it is the hardest decision to make.  They are all so wonderful!  I had immunity last week and was safe, but this week, I am not safe!  I did my best and pulled this one out of my hat!  Wish me luck!


Blue Bird Mix and Match!

If you are up for a challenge, I have a new challenge going on right now at ScrapBird!  It is the Blue Bird Mix and Match Challenge!  All you need to do is purchase any two items found in the BlueBird Mix and Match section of the store HERE,  then create a layout using both of those items and post it in the gallery at Scrapbird.  For full details of the challenge go to this thread at Scrapbird.  Here is one of the layouts I created using the matching pieces…  I hope to see you all there!


Summer is almost over!!!

I can’t believe that summer is almost over and it is already time for the kids to go back to school!  We have has an awesome summer and I truely hate to see it end.  Here in the South, the hottest time of the year is in August though, so the swim suit is not taking a break just yet!

Some very interesting things are happening in the digi world.  I won a spot on the DET at Scrapbird and I am really excited about that.  August is my first official month and I am working like crazy to get some layouts completed for those lovely ladies over there.  But alas, as with all things, real life has a tendency to get in the way…at least once a week!

I have also entered the Scrapping Survivor contest at GingerScraps.  It has turned out to be one of the best things that I could have done.  I have made it through to round three and now I am just waiting to vote on Monday.  The votes will determine who goes on to round 4.  I have my fingers crossed!

OK… so here are a few of my DET layouts that I have posted.  These first two are created with “The men in my life” by Myst Designs.  A wonderful kit for men and boys.  You can find it here.



These next two layouts are created with “Retro Kitchen” by Country Liv Graphics.  This awesome kit is available at Scrapbird HERE.  ENJOY!
