Julie Marie Designs

I am not sure if I shared earlier in the month that I was able to join an awesome CT for Julie Marie Designs.  I was able to finally get some pages done to show off her great kits and thought I would share them with you.

 Kit - Giving Thanks

Kit: Andrew
Kit: Daydreamer
All of these kits are available at Elemental Scraps and Gotta Pixel

Happy Thanksgiving!

Well, Thanksgiving is almost over and we had a great family day.  Enjoyed "breakfast" for dinner and went to the pool for some relaxation.  I finally am getting down to updating here and getting some scrapping done!

I was able to scrap this year's pictures of the girls in their Halloween costumes. I used Kristmess' Eeeek! kit again and I must say it is such a fun kit!! 

I also picked out another kit from Bella Gypsy and did a couple of layouts.  This first one shows our oldest and I tell you she is growing into such a beautiful young woman.  I am ultra proud of her.
Now this second layout I did I scrap-lifted from a  friend (gette3) I fell in love with her layout and had to do one of my own. Imitation is the finest form of flattery according to Anne Shirley.  The photo are of our middle daughter and she was really struttin' around with some 'tude!

the kits used in these layouts are available at Gotta Pixel.  Eeeek! by Kristmess and Wallflower by Bella Gypsy.

Ahh back to work

As in for money.  I had to work again this week now that I am "healthy"   I haven't gotten much done in the scrapping world lately so only have one layout to share.  This is one using Christmess' awesome kit Eeeek! and I can't wait to use it again!  I  have a few years worth of Halloweens to scrap.  This LO is of Victoria when she was about 4 She was so cute and serious for her age so the journaling is precious to me.  The lady at that door sure got a good laugh too.

I am not a very good blogger

I am going to have to set a goal of updating this blog better.  I forget about it unless I have awesome layouts to post (like tonight.)  This week of course I don't feel to guilty because I have felt terrible this week.  I am pretty sure it was the flu.  I am feeling better though not great but much better!  I can talk louder than a whisper even :-)
Anyway, this month at Gotta Pixel there is a birthday bash happening.  GP turns 4 this month, and to top that off the 7th is Digital Scrapbook Day - that means 50% off in the GP store and lots of fun and games around the digi world.   To start off the birthday month I got some of my CT layouts done and I am really happy with them!

I am working with products from Kristmess and Bella Gypsy this month and I love the kits!

Life Blooms by Kristmess is a fun and cheery kits that I was able to use successfully for some girly pages for the girls.  As I said a couple of months ago pink and I have issues, but this is a kit that really got my girly girl creative juice flowing -- surprise surprise!

Emily is a perfect subject for my girly pages as she is a girly girl!  She loves pink and purple and playing pretty even if she loves to get dirty too! This picture is from this summer and I love it, the color in the kit worked really well with the photo too!  The layout use a photo from a couple of weeks ago of the girls playing at the park.  They all climbed  up on a half wall of the play equipment and the way they are standing in the picture reminds me of the cover of a Superfriends comic book so that is where the title of Supergirls came from.

Working with Bella Gypsy's kit Better Left Unsaid was great.  I LOVE earthtone colors so the kit jumped right out to me.  I use a couple of picture of Emily and Libby playing in the leaves from last weekend and I fell in love with the results.

This layout was done also using a template from Bella Gypsy found in their October Templatepalooza.  The second layout I did using the directions from a speedscrap that I am co-hosting in the wee hours (1 am) of the 7th.   I totally love this layout of the girls who really are 2 of a kind.
