Nominated for Bakers Best

Shouting out for this layout!   It was nominated for Bakers Best at GingerScraps for the week of November 1 – 7.  I created this one with a new kit by Blue Heart Scraps called “Get Your Smile On“.  I also used her new “Dotty Edges“.  My Grandson is just so silly and I just knew that this was the perfect photo for this layout!


A voting poll should be set up either tomorrow or Monday for voting on this one.  Drop by the forum and cast your vote for Bakers Best!  I will update this post when the poll is posted and with the results!

Connie Prince Designs

….. Continuing with more CT Layouts.  These were created with designs by Ms Connie.  All of these kits are on sale in the stores at Gingerscraps, Gotta Pixel and The Digi Chick.

This first one is created using Connie’s new kit “Holiday Happy“.  Awesome little kit for Christmas photos.


Next up is Connie’s “Looking Back” kit.  This one is awesome for year in review layouts, but as you can see, it can also  be used for specific things. There are two layouts using this one…



AND, for a very limited time you can get this next kit FREE when you purchase $10.00 from any one of Connie’s stores.  It’s called “Thankful”.


Back in time!

Well, here we are, an hour BACK in time!  I like that I gain my hour back…at least I think I like it.  I can’t really tell most of the time if I actually gained an hour back or if I have lost one.  I definitely have lost one in the evening as now it is completely dark by the time I get in my car to make my journey across the interstate highway to the house.  I really wish that someone would just tell everyone to leave the time alone.  By Gods Nature, the daylight and the dark of it will eventually take care of itself.  I guess it’s like everything else….we are always in such a big hurry that we forget to just stop and smell the coffee, or the roses, or really look at this beautiful world that God has created for us to call home.  Oh well, onward!

Here are a few more layouts that I created this week.  Some are for challenges and some are just for the love of scrapping!  First up is one that I created for the inspiration challenge at GingerScraps.  I am so proud of these photos!  Do you realize just how hard it is to get a good shot of a hummingbird?  This was created with “What a Hoot Templates” by Connie Prince and a really cute kit called “Tribal Spirit” by CathyK.


This next layout was created for the GingerScraps Template Challenge (#1) with an awesome kit by Blue Heart Scraps called “Simply YOUnique” and the template that was provided by Mandy King.  Echo always makes a great photo subject!


Here’s another one of Echo.  For this one I used several items from the BlueBird Mix and Match that you can find at Scrapbird. I love the monthly mix and match and this month Z has some of the cutest messy Stamps up for grabs.  Go check it out!  Messy Stamps and Mix and Match.


This one is one of my CT creations using JoyLynn’s (Blue Heart Scraps) new kit “Hard Hat Life“.  This is an awesome kit with lots of construction zone elements and papers.  Great for Boys and hardworking men layouts.


Another CT layout with Alana.  I used another new kit by JoyLynn for this one as well.  It’s called “One Smart Cookie“. Alana really is a smart cookie too!




Happy November!

Well October has come and gone.  I hope everyone had a great and safe Halloween.  It was rainy with thunderstorms here so not many trick or treaters out and about on a nasty night.  I was, however ready for them in my Minnie the Moo outfit! IMG_8952

My Grand-Daughter wasn’t impressed with the suit but that’s alright, it was all in fun and I can wear it as PJ’s any time I get ready when the cold of winter gets here!

Onward…. for November, Gingerscraps has their NEW November Buffet in the store.  Lots of awesome New kits for November in there to choose from.  Go check it out here.

I am creating layouts for TWO awesome Designers during the month of December and I have to be honest, I am about wore out! I am on Blue Heart Scraps permanent team and I am a Guest Member for Connie Prince for the month of November.  These two ladies ROCK with new kits coming out soon.  Which reminds me, PLEASE do not forget that DSD (Digital Scrapbook Day) is on the 7th of November so all of your favorite scrapbook sites will be all geared up for that event…which will cover both the 7th and the 8th, in most cases.

I have already been busy creating pages for the challenges at GingerScraps.  Here are a few that I have posted in the gallery.

This one is for my October Birthdays but I had to wait for the kit to be released in the store before I could post it here.  I created it for the Buffet Challenge.


This one was created for the Mini kit challenge which Blue Heart Scraps is hosting this month.  You can pick up this mini kit free in the forum to complete the challenge.  You are going to love this mini so much that you will want the full size kit!  You can pick it up Here. Hot Mess


Here’s one that I created with the full size kit to celebrate it’s release date!


This is one that I created for the Designer Spotlight Challenge.  This month we have three awesome designers in the spotlight!  Seatrout Scraps (aka Racheal), Dagi  of Dagi’s Temp-tations, and Ivonne of Craft-Tastrophic Designs.  This layout is created using all of Seatrout Scraps creations, including the template.


And last but not least is my signature for the November Signature Challenge.  This is created using Pumpkin Spice by Trixie Scraps and you can purchase it here.


Well, that wraps it up for today!  See ya next time!
