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!

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!
