TDC – Give Me Space Challenge

I finally got the chance to get back over to The Digi Chick and complete a challenge.  This one is for the “Give Me Space” Challenge.  The object is to create a layout using lots of “white” space.  I do not do many of them, so it is nice to get this challenge done every month.

I used “The Faith Project – Goodness” created by Sherwood Studios.  You can pick it up here.


I just love Sunday, don’t you?  It is my day to just take time to relax after a busy week and enjoy my coffee, my PJ’s, my grandkids, the husband….well, just everything!  Here is a layout that I created this lazy Sunday…made especially for Sunday!  I used Jill’s “Sunday Morning” kit available here.

Pillow Talk

With Valentines Day just around the corner, I thought this to be a cute play on words!  I am actually surprised that I thought of it!  Anyway, for this layout, I used a photo of this awesome fuzzy red heart that I gave Miss Abigail last year for Valentines Day.  I have this habit of taking pictures of things like this and thank goodness that I do!

The template I used is from the “Block On Template Collection” created by Blue Heart Scraps.  It can be found here and the kit is “Be Still My Heart” also by Blue Heart Scraps.  It can be found here.

Snowdrop Lane by Seatrout

I am running late, but I promised that I would be back with a layout using Rachael’s newest kit that is now in the store at Gingerscraps.  The name of the kit is Snowdrop Lane and it is beautiful.  Lots of flowers and other elements but what I really like are the canvas/burlap papers that she has included.  You can pick up this kit here.

Please note that the black box with the words Snowdrop that appears around the photo are of my own creation.  This is NOT included in the kit.

Created by Jill and more….

First things first…

I am officially a stay at home Wife, Mother and Grandmother.  My last day on the job was February 8th.  I’m not sure what the financial aspect of that will bring but for now, it is just good to be at home and able to put more time into some of the things that I want to do around here and into my photography and scrapbook interest.

That being said…. I am very excited to say that I made it onto Jill’s Creative Team!  I am looking forward to creating layouts with all of her awesome digital kits and I hope that all of you will like them, love them and be inspired by them.

AND… you may be happy to see that I actually changed my blog header this morning.  While the November one was pretty, I was getting tired of looking at it too!  The new one is created with Jill’s “PS- I love you” kit and is available at Pickleberry Pop – Here.

This is one of the layouts that I created with that same kit.  Beautiful artsy kit but certainly does not have to be used that way as it is perfect for more traditional layouts as well.  This layout was created for the Font Challenge at PBP.  The font is “School Notes” and is available at DAfonts here:    As you can see, it is a very versatile font and can be used for more than just a school page.

Jill has a brand new kit that hit the store on Tuesday evening (02/07/2017).  The name of the kit is “Just Stay a Little Longer” and is geared toward empty nesters but can be used for SO many other wonderful things.  Here I have a layout using an empty bird nest that I found in one of the trees in my front yard.  You can pick up this kit at PBP here:

Blue Heart Scraps

JoyLynn has a new kit at Gingerscraps called “Be Still My Heart“.  A wonderful kit for Valentines Day, Anniversaries or just Love layouts in general. She really pulled out all of the stops on this one too.  Awesome papers and elements in this one.  One that I can really see myself using for many different things.  You can pick it up here at GS.

Stay tuned as Rachael has a new kit that will hit the stores at midnight tonight and I will be back with a layout using that new kit.

See you then!
