Feels good...

Spent some time in my loft purging, organizing and then creating this week. Felt good to get back in the groove and have some play time!  Here are a few cards I created for the My Mind's Eye October Sketch Challenge...

Of course, I didn't get them finished in time for this month's contest, but it was fun playing along anyway!  I am loving the black, goldenrod, and cream color combo!

This next one is a two-page layout ---- YES, a TWO page layout!  Can you believe that I haven't created one of these just because in years?  But all those adorable pics of Emma at the park were just screaming for a double page layout. Again, this is some fun My Mind's Eye papers:

We have another busy weekend of soccer games, a baby shower, Halloween and fun! 


Sneak Peekin'!

The November Kit over at Dixie Pieces is almost here!  I have been having a ton of fun playing with it and wanted to sneak you a few peeks! So many wonderful fall colors to play with.  Be sure to watch for the kit release over in the Dixie Pieces Store on November 1st!

Oh yeah, it's going to be fun!  We have a great weekend of scrappin', games, and fun all ready for you!  And just look at those prize sponsors! What could be better than that?  Be sure to check out the forum for all the details!



This fabulous new collection arrived on my doorstep last week and I couldn't wait to play with it!  Simple Stories has done it again... Year.O.Graphy  is amazing, to say the least!  See for yourself:

What do you think?  Are you in love?  I know I am....I have some big plans for this line, but being the impatient person that I am, I couldn't wait to cut into the paper, so I created a couple quick & easy designs to share.  You can see them today on the Simple Stories Blog - but, here is a sneak peek:



Scrappin' Sports & More is teaming up with the Sketch Inspiration blog this month!  That means one great sketch, lots of great inspiration, and a huge, amazing prize courtesy of Scrappin' Sports & More! 

Be sure to check out the other designs inspired by the great sketch above and be sure to play along with us this month!


Photos and Simple Stories!

Yes, it's been over 3 weeks since the kids went home to Missouri and I am just getting my photos organized and sent to Costco.  It's been a crazy busy 3 weeks with school & sports, what can I say?

Before I share some pics with you, I want to tell you about a few fun things happening in my scrappin' world with Simple Stories!

  • It's my posting day over on the Simple Stories Blog!  Here is a sneak peak of the design you will find when you visit:

I see some fun creations in my future with this new line!  How adorable is that?

Are you ready to see some fun photos of our week with Tom, Angie & Emma?  Be prepared to smile and of course think, "Oh, she's so cute!"

Of course I have a ton more!  What I don't have is any photos of us with the kids or of David with the kids...I guess I spent way too much time enjoying myself and not enough time documenting it!


My Romance - October Dixie Pieces Kit!

Isn't this a beautiful kit?  I loved working with it!  You can see all the designs over in the gallery at Dixie Pieces!  But here is a sample for you:

Be sure to keep your eyes open for the new Design Team announcement coming soon too!
