Tall, Dark, and Handsome is in the house!!!!

Okay, so....maybe not in the house but...the Tall, Dark, and Handsome Collection was just released by Ettes & Company today! It's such a fabulous kit! I'm sure you could create some fabulous pages about those tall, dark, and handsome men in your life! Here's some inspiration. I created these layouts using the kit. Every LO I created made me like the kit more and more.

This first LO is a picture of my husband and son at our son's wedding last summer. Aren't they handsome all spiffed up!

This next LO shows just how versatile their collection is. Although the theme of my LO has nothing to do with being tall, dark or handsome, it worked perfectly for this picture of the memory flowers on the alter at our son's wedding. The flowers were put there in rememberance of all our dear family members who are no longer here to spend these special moments with us.

I was even able to create this heritage LO with the collection. It's a picture of my dad on his confirmation day! Wasn't he a handsome one!

So go check out Tall, Dark, and Handsome at You won't be disappointed. Pick up the collection here.
I also want to give you a preview of a really cute new kit coming out soon by Colie's Corner Creations called Beautiful Day. You can find it soon at BTST.
Check out some of Colie's other kits...they are fabulous! Here's a LO I created with her new kit.

That's all for now......hope to see you in digi land soon!
Keep on a scrappin'!

I'm Back.........

Wow....sorry it's been a while since I've had a chance to give you an update. But so much excitement has happened in the last few weeks I don't know where to begin! As I told you in the last post, I've joined a couple other creative teams. Since that post I've been invited to be on two more creative teams! and Calalily Designs . How amazing is that....who would have known 9 months ago when I decide to give digital scrapbooking a try that I would have the honor of being on 5 great teams! I'm so excited but very busy getting myself organized and a system in place to get it all done! So much for procrastination....that's now out the door. Organize, organize, organize....that's my new mantra! (Some day I'll be brave enough to actually post some photos of my not so organized craft room and you'll understand!)
Oh...there was one other exciting thing that happened too... My First Egg Hunt layout (created with the Blue Skies Collection from Ettes & Company), was featured in the current issue (Issue 6) of The Daily Scrapper! You can check it out here. It will be featured until April 10th.
Anyway....on to the fun stuff. Here's some inspiration from all the wonderful kits I've had the opportunity to work with the last couple of weeks.
I made this wedding planner for my future daughter in law using the Be My Guest Collection from Ettes and Company. What a great wedding collection they've created!

And from the Ettes Sweet Baby Girl Collection I was able to create these two layouts. It's such a beautiful kit and as you can see, not just for baby photos!
This month at Scrapable, I've been given the pleasure to work with a kit by Cherie Shields Designs called Pure Innocence. It's such a pretty kit!

At Been There Scrapped That I've been lucky enough to work with kits from several of their great designers. This layout for an album I'm doing for my friend's son, I used the awesome kit by Liz (Sweet Digi Scraps) called Boys Aloud.
This page was created using the awesome kit by a new designer at BTST, Sweet Tomato Designs. The kit is called Rocket Boy. It really is out of this world!

Another new designer at BTST is Heckenzwerge Designs. She has some fabulous templates to create wordalbums. Here's the Girl one that I did. I used Liz (Sweet Digi Scrap)'s Fruit Punch kit along with the template. It turned out so cute.
Using Liz's Fruit Punch kit again I created another layout for my friend's son's book. Doesn't he look so cute! This kit is so versatile! I love it!
The March Collab - Early Spring at My Life and Scrap is a great buy as well as a great kit. I created this layout from the kit as swell as my Night Scapes layout in the previous post. How adorable he is in that great hat!

MLAS has a new designer as well, My Creative Pixels. Jaimie is fabulous and I was able to create this layout with her kit called Shabby Boy. What a great kit for those men and boys in your life.

And last...but definitely not least are the great kits from Calalily designs that I had the opportunity to work with. The first one is her new kit Out with Dad.

Boys Rule is another great kit from Calalily Designs that I used for this layout. I loved working with both of Sheena's kits. She is an awesome designer! you know what I've been up to! Stay tuned for more fun new kits from all the great designers that I get to work with! I'm so excited about all of them my head is still spinning......
Keep on scrappin........
Whew.....I think I have writer's cramp! This was a long one!
