Hey there, hi there, ho there

We’re back from Disneyland.  What a wonderful adventure.  It is the perfect place for a five-year-old.  Alex was is awe of everything.  She even enjoyed standing in line-no kidding!! I will have some Disney pages soon. We only have the one photo of all of us, so here we are on our way into the Character breakfast.


Of course, I have a couple of pages to show you.  DigiKit - Quickstep Vol. 2 - The Memory Lane Quick Pages is just the greatest kit and brand new from Jo Hanna at 2 Peas in a  Bucket.  This kit includes 7 quick pages that co-ordinate with her Memory Lane kit. JoHanna_2ps_quickstepvol2_prev

Elation with a Capital E!

Last week I got some super news.  I was selected to serve on Jessica Sprague’s Creative Team

I'm just elated. I remember just last year, picking up Jessica's Computer Tricks 3 magazine so I could use it to fill the time on a long plane ride to Cabo.  There I sat with my magazine and highlighter wishing that I could learn to do a fraction of the techniques described-wow; I am flying again now.  My plane has arrived!!

For my first assignment I’m working for the Elle’s Studio. This store is filled with all kinds of scrapping goodies.  I just love all the hybrid projects.

Today she is highlighting two new sets of Christmas cards.  Easy peezy!  Christmas Photo Cards - set 2


Aren’t the colors just beautiful!!

Burning Love by Jo Hanna


Aren’t these fall colors in Burning Love just gorgeous?  Jo Hanna made a beautiful and extremely versatile fall kit.  The word art is outstanding.  You can find this kit at Two Peas in a Bucket.

The first page I have today is of Michelle and Zee “captured” in my back yard while they were in Seattle last month.  I told them I needed some good looking young people for my pages and they allowed me to snap them.  Thanks a lot.

I did this page for a template challenge at the Digital Scrap Cafe.  The template was a design by the talented Aprilisa.  Snail Mail is my absolute favorite kit by Val c Designs.  Remember those days when we used to get all of our mail delivered by the postman?  There was no internet.  It was, and still is, a thrill to get a letter or a postcard.BI_KIT%20preview%20PP%20Snail%20mail_Val%20c_%20designs600

Snail Mail is stocked full of delightful papers, clever word art,  and perfect elements.  You can find the kit in Val’s shop at the Digital Scrap Cafe for just $4.80.  It’s a great kit for scrapping those messages that we want to remember.

P.S.  Have a beautiful day.
