A Sale and a Freebie

I have been busy at work, putting in some new kits to my store. And I have neglected to share that DxD is having a storewide celebration, 12 Days of Christmas! Guess who is having a first sale as Day 6? That is right! 25% off all my kits and if you look carefully in the store you can find this freebie, too!

It coordinates with one of my new kits, SnowyDay.

In other news, we have been getting a lot of snow lately, so I have been taking a lot of photos of the boys playing outside. I can't wait to get them scrapped, but I have some more designing to take care of first.

Merry Blog and I did it!

Eeek! Its been a huge day for me....

First things first. Today my first design has gone into a store! I am now an official designer! You can find my design (and soon to be more) at DigiByDesign.com. I will have to celebrate this in a big way once I catch my breath!

I hope the awesome designers there will have patience with me as I learn the ropes.

Getting everything squared with that, delayed me from posting this . I hope you can all forgive me.


And here's my part. Word Art with background included. I hope you enjoy it!

Don't forget to visit the rest of the Blogs and enjoy!

Just checking in....

Yikes! I haven't posted in a month!

I will do better next month for certain. Keep watching and I will have big news soon. In the meantime, I am still cohosting Chats with SeAScrApS on Wednesdays at DigiShopTalk.com 10PM Eastern.

I am also still hosting the Scraplift Challenge at DigibyDesign.com, I should have a new bonus for next month coming out in a couple of days.

I guess the birthdays and the holidays, have gotten me a bit wrapped up this month, but I should be more on track now.

Twinkle Layouts

Just in the nick of time, I have my two CT layouts for AmyW! I wished I could have gotten them done sooner, but since she just took Twinkle out her grab bag last week, maybe it was fortunate that I waited. The gray matches my kitty perfectly!


Pulling Up
Full Credits

I have had a blast doing CT Layouts, maybe once things slow down around here I will try out again.

The best part about these pictures is that they used to be too small to use effectively in my LOs, but I found a plugin for PSE that will expand the photos without causing jaggies. Unfortunately I just have it on trial for the next month, so I suppose I better get all my older photos expanded while I can.

I'm a Guest CT this month!

Thanks to everyone who enjoyed the blog party, its a blast seeing all those downloads. Makes me want to give some more away. :)

So I have been keeping a small secret from you all. I am a guest CT for the month of October for AmyW Designs. I can't tell you how much I love her Jumpstarts Collections found at DxD of course. So here is my first LO for her this month:

Full Credits here.

Anyway, I am so excited and I have a couple more layouts coming soon.

Its October Already?

So I am starting a new Scraplift Challenge at DxD this month. You have til the end of the month to post and you can earn this posting bonus:

I am also still running my weekly chats at DxD for Seascraps, on Wednesdays at 10 PM. This week we did the My Kind of Toncka kit. The ad is a little late, but the chat is every week. I'll have the ad up for next week sooner, I promise. I also gave out some wordart with my pages. I can't wait to see the gallery this week!

Also don't miss the download a day at DxD, for the Spooktacular kit - if you go everyday you will have a huge album when you are done. I went to go look and today is day 3 , its my quick page! And holy cow, that sale this week is great! Spooktacular is a huge kit, I could have made a ton more quick pages if they let me.

To update you all, my friend made the guest DET at DSP. She will be scrapping like crazy for the next 2 months.

I also have other news that I want to share, but I am going to hold off til I have LOs to share. :)

Hey What's New?

So I am going to be promoting the Quick Pick Me Up chat I am running at DxD on Wednesday nights at 10 PM ET. The bonus is that Michelle and Athena have Wacky Wednesday chat at 9 PM so you get 2 chats to hang out and have fun! This week we are promoting Sandra's kit Kickin It, so come on soccer lovers.

Also I have another Scraplift Challenge running at DxD. Here is the posting bonus for those who want to join in:

I am also still working on my newest Photobook. I hope to have it finished soon because winkflash;) is having such a deal I can't pass it up - ends Sept 28. While I am there, I should print out a few photos for some empty frames I have waiting. So much to do so little time.

This is a shout out for gundimom who is really a very talented LO artist.

She has been published in Creating Keepsakes! She has been published before but this is CK, so its different. I feel so happy for her. She did a layout about it:


If you get CK, she is in the October copy.

She is also a finalist in the DET competition at DSP. I am pulling for her, half my favorites on that site are hers. I feel so lucky to get her opinions on my work, as I respect hers so highly.

My first Digital SLR

So about two months ago, I aquired my first digital SLR, a Nikon 40. My first SLR ever, actually. Since then I have been trying to learn about photography and how to go about taking great pictures to use in my big hobby, digital scrapbooking.

I don't have extra lighting, I don't have any special flash, I don't even have any other lenses yet, but already my photography is improving. The reason is that I don't have as much lag time as I did with my point and shoot. Now I can capture the photos of my kids just a bit better. I hope once I learn more about the process that I can capture great photos.
