2010 Calendars

Good Morning Everyone!

I hope your weekend is going well, mine is. I had fun at Robs Christmas party last night. Had a couple drinks for the first time in 2 years. I wasn't inebriated but we took a cab home anyways, better safe than sorry. I have something different and very cool to show off today. My4Princesses Designs teamed up with Robyn Pali Designs and have brought out a 2010 Calendar Bundle available only at Enchanted Studio Scraps. This Bundle is huge with 3 complete sets. First is a set of mini kits for each month of the year. Second is a set of templates for each month and Third is a set of calendar quick pages for every month. Calendars are a great christmas present for grandparents, who love to see theyu\ir grandbabies every way they can. It's not too late to order calendars either, I ordered calendars for my mom and mother in law from Shutterfly Friday night around 6 pm and by noon Saturday I got confirmation that it had shipped out already. I have ordered several things from Shutterfly and have always been happy so I'm really excited to see these, as well as the mugs we ordered for my dad and father in law.

Christmas Spirit

Happy Saturday Everyone!

Tonight we are going to my husbands Christmas Party while my mom babysits the wee munchkin. I'm pretty excited, I haven't met hardly anyone at his work yet, though I do hear the odd "Hello Rob's Wife" over the phone when I talk to him. I met one guy from his work at a Hockey Game we went to on Remembrance Day. I have a beautiful kit to introduce today, Christmas Spirit by Manda's Scrappin' Creations. It can be found at Stuff to Scrap, but get it quick as she is leaving December First and I'm not sure how long her creations stay up afterwards.

I made a two page layout with this kit, though I realized after that it was all paper, no elements. I still like it a lot though. But I decided to make a quick page to show of some of the great elements.

Don't forget to come back on Monday to check out the Freebie Collab Kit Manda and I made called Blue Christmas!

Victorian Elegance

Good Morning Everyone!

Sorry this is a little later than usual again, I had to renew my photoshop account so my pictures were visible again. In the US today is Black Friday, where apparently everyone shops a lot and there are huge sales. I know that Stuff to Scrap is having a Huge Sale, you can see the details in my sidebar. I'm introducing a new kit today called Victorian Elegance from Scrapping Rainbow Designs available at Stuff to Scrap.

I decided to use some flower photos from my wedding with this kit. I also experimented with some photo editing techniques.

Sno' Way

Happy Thasnksgiving to my American Readers!

Just another day up here in Canada, though there's no TV so I guess it gives me more Wii time so thanks! Today I'm showing you a new kit from Pretty Pixels that comes out tomorrow at 50% off for Black Friday. I wanted you to have adequate notice of the sale so i'm posting it today instead of tomorrow morning. The kit is called Sno' Way and it's available at Enchanted Studio Scraps and My Life and Scrap.The kit is full of beautiful snowy blues, purples & aqua.

I'm still at a lack of snowy pictures (and not complaining one bit) so I am using more general pictures.

So as I mentioned this kit is on sale tomorrow (Black Friday November 27th) for 50% off!

Autumn Blessings

Good Morning Everyone!

I hope you enjoyed the Quick Page yesterday! I hope to have more for you with kits in the near future as soon as I finish up my Christmas Gift Scrapping. I'm about 75% done and should have it done tomorrow or the next day. Today I have another beautiful Autumn Kit for you, this time from Scrapper's Delights. The kit is called Autumn Blessings and is available at Enchanted Studio Scraps. I'm loving all these Autumn kits because I have so many autumn pictures to scrap with them. I love the wintery kits too but we are being blessed with a long fall this year (and I'm not complaining one bit) so I have no wintery pictures yet! Speaking of Wintery Kits, check my sidebar for a Sale from Scrapper's Delights.

I used a bunch of pictures from our fall photoshoot that I've mentioned before. Between Tera and I we seriously took over 300 pictures. I really can't wait until the next time we take the girls out for pictures because Deirdre is walking now so it should be fun. I should have new swimming pictures after next weekend.

Joy To The World

Good Morning!

I hope you had a great weekend, mine had it's ups and downs. I got my Wii which is an up. It's just as awesome as I'd hoped. I win at Tennis and Guitar Hero, Rob wins at Bowling and Boxing and we tie at Golf & Baseball. I had to prep for the capsule endoscopy yesterday which is a major down. I'm hungry, and I can't do anything about it for about 4 hours, I havent eaten solids in over 24 hours. Also my daughter hasn't been sleeping terribly well since she learned to walk so I'm hopingt hat fixes itself right quick. Today I have for you a beautiful Christmas Kit called Joy To The World by SAHM Scrapper & Flower Scraps. I really love the rich colours in this kit and the alpha and elements are just beautiful.

I decided to scrap pictures from last Christmas. First Deirdre and my dad who everyone says she looks like, then our family photo.

Holiday Card Templates

Good Morning!

It's Wii day! I'm very excited to get my wii today after swimming lessons ( because if we get it before swimming lessons there's a good chance we'll skip them lol). Also my daughter chose last night to start walking all over the place, well all over the living room. She walked back and forth for hours on end it was amazing. Christmas is going to be so much fun I can hardly wait. Helping me get into the Christmas spirit is these beautiful Holiday Card templates by Pretty Pixels available at Enchanted Studio Scraps and My Life and Scrap.

I made a few sample cards using Copacetic also available from Pretty Pixels. I can't wait to get Deirdre's holiday dress so we can get a real card worked up!

Girl Friends

Good Morning Everyone!

Hope your week is going well! Mine's pretty good actually but I'm glad it's Friday. Plus, I get my Wii tomorrow. I saved up my birthday money and scraped together a bit plus my brother is letting me use his 20% discount at Walmart and I'm pretty excited. I have wanted one literally since they came out and I can finally afford it. Yay! In other news I need to buy a new USB cord for my iPod because I really want to get it synced with my new computer and have NO idea where the cord is. I have a new kit to introduce you to today full of pretty colours and really cool elements. It's called Girlfriends and is by Growing Pains Scrapped.

Naturally I made my layout about my daughter and her best friend.

On Tuesday I will have a QP to go along with this kit so don't miss it!

Nature's Little Wonders

Good Morning Everyone!

Yesterday was kind of a neat day. I went to the Gastrenterologist to see about taking part in a clinical trial of Capsule Endoscopy. The technology itself is fully tested & perfectly safe they are doing trials to see if it's useful in diagnosing & treating iron deficiency anemia. So I go in on Monday for that and I'm pretty excited. In other news I have a new kit to share with you from my newest Designer Scrapper's Delights the new kit is absolutely adorable, 4th in a set of these cute little characters. This one is called Natures Little Wonders and you can pick it up over at Enchanted Studio Scraps or Pretty Scrappy.

Emily's Room

Good Morning!

I had trouble getting scrapbooking time yesterday with my active & clingy little monkey so I stayed up past when I wanted to go to bed finishing up these layouts. On the plus side my scanner works now! Yay! So one of the layouts features a scanned picture of me at about 18 years old. The kit I'm showing off today is a really sweet girls kit called Emily's Room by My4Princesses Designs available at ESS.

My first layout is a blast from my past. My second is another of my daughter in her halloween costume. We plan to photograph them in their cute costumes all over until they don't fit anymore (which will be a while).

Family Fun Night

Good Morning Everyone!

I hope yuo had a good weekend. I did for the most part. The door for my desk is built but we can't put it on until tiomorrow night because we need to saw the back off of my tower cubby to make it fit and due to some car troubles we couldn't get that done until Deirdre was in bed. Power Saw 4 feet from the bedroom door with a sleeping baby... bad idea. So we will do it tomorrow. OR... Now that I'm thinking of it I could switch my tower into the other cubby and that junk into this one and now have to saw it... but then I need to locate a latch sooner. I will discuss options with hubby tomorrow. I have a really fun new kit to introduce you to called Family Fun Night by SAHM Scrapper and The Scrappy Kat available at STS. I absolutely LOVE board games of all kind and am practically counting down the days until my daughter is old enough to play games with me (around 21 months for the good games though I have seen a few 2+ games). Anyhow This kit is perfect for game nights.

Because I don't yet have any good game night photos I used some that looked like she was playing her own little games. I hopw you like it!

Just Lovely

Good Morning!

I hope you are enjoying your Saturday! I love Saturdays because I get to sleep in. Hubby & I trade off weekend days. I sleep in Saturday morning while he gets up with the baby and he sleeps in on Sundays. We also get to go swimming on Saturday, I purposely booked swimming lessons for midday though so it wouldn't interfere with my sleeping in. Today I have a new elegant kit to introduce you to called Just Lovely by Pretty Pixels available at MLAS & ESS. And it really is just lovely.


I made 2 layouts with it and just love how elegant they both look. The first is my daughter with Santa last year. The second is from our wedding.

A Golden Christmas

Happy Friday!

Yesterday was a killer for me. My daughter was inconsolable most of the day. She wouldn't let me put her down but didn't want to sit nice, just climb, punch, kick & scratch me. Fun times. Today I have a new kit from BubbleScrap Designs for you called A Golden Christmas. It's a really lovely and elegant christmas kit with some homey feelings to it.

These are my layouts I made with it. The first is called Dear Santa and the secong Christmas Family.
