That stands for Amazing Digi Scrap Race. This is all new for me but I am doing it!  I teamed up with Wendy from my gotta pixel CT and we are all in!  I am very excited to extend my abilities and I know that challenges like this one is the best way to do that!  I will post my layouts here and Wendy's too if she will allow!  If you want to join in the fun find a partner and you both need to register here at the NDSB site.  Registration for ADSR is set to start on the 15th of January.  NDSB is working it way back so be patient, and in the mean time go shopping for products!


Well after all that work I got my entire calendar done and I am happy with it.  I ended up printing it at Office Depot and it worked out great and it was less than $20!  If I had been more organized it would have been cheaper but I missed the sale! Next year!  And speaking of next year I decided to make a challenge at Gotta Pixel to make the 2011 calendar one month at a time!  If you are interested stop over and join me!

Speaking of Gotta Pixel I finished my CT layouts for them!  I cut a bit close but here is my last layout using Rarf by simply.scraps.  This is our youngest with our then puppy Milo.  I love how this turned out!

More Calendar months done!!

WooHoo!!  I am more than halfway done with my calendar now and it feels great.  I have 3 more that I can show today.

  I used a kit from Colie's Corner Made with Love for my January spread. The kit is available at Gotta Pixel.

 I did these two using simply.scraps mini kit Punky Cutester along with paper and other elements from So...Basically, Metallic Alpha, Blingy Buds, and Keeping Tabs all also from simply.scraps.  All of these can be found at Gotta Pixel.

I hope that my parents like their calendar as much I do!!

is it 2010 yet?

It seems like it!  I am working on my 2010 calendar and phew I am getting there. I only have seven more months to do for my calendar.  I am really happy with it so far so it is totally worth the work, but I really need to get moving on it earlier next week.  It is so easy to forget how quickly time gets away from you in Nov and Dec and wham!  The thing should already be done by now!! I will show off a few of  my calendar pages.

I have done 2 spreads recently using kits from Julie Marie Designs.

December's spread has pictures from this year while the girls were decorating the Christmas tree.  The kit used is Holly Eve by Julie Marie Designs and it is available at her stores at Gotta Pixel and Elemental Scraps.

The October spread uses Julie Marie's kit Almost Christmas.  This kit is also available at both Gotta Pixel and Elemental Scraps.

SNOW, Snow, snow....

That is what we are supposed to have weather wise for the next 2 days -- with blizzard-like conditions?  I really don't like this kind of weather when we get it.  It is the price we pay for living in the midwest though.  I am getting stuff done! woohoo!  I managed to do a couple more months of my calendar, a recipe card and a full layout of our dog.

This is a recipe card that will be given as a part of a small gift for teachers, lemon bars are a favorite of mine and so I decided to share my recipe.  I used the kit Made With Love by Colie's Corner for this and the kit is available at Gotta Pixel Here.

For this layout featuring our dog Milo I used Rarf by simply.scraps.  This is a cute kit also available at Gotta Pixel Here.

Crazy Busy Season

Well the hectic time of the year is completely upon me!  I have shopping, wrapping, scrapping, cleaning, baking, and who knows what else!

Top on my list though is finishing my 2010 calendar I am making for the grandparents.  I posted July in Oct. and here is November  I really like how it turned out and I hope they do too. I used a kit by Captivated Visions called An Apple a Day and it can be found in her stores at Gotta Pixel and Elemental Scraps.
