The Great Outdoors, Blog train

Welcome to this month's blog train!! I LOVED this theme and the colors!! I had to really not do everything I wanted to for this kit. In the end, I did 30 elements and 5 papers. I'll have this free for 2 weeks and then I'm going to make it in to a FULL kit and put it in my store. In the mean time, enjoy downloading and don't forget to leave lots of love.

Let's Go Fly A Kite

I am so excited to show you this awesome new kit. Becky (B2N2 Scraps) doesn't have a CT yet so I volunteered to work with her newest kit. Take a look at this kit. Don't you love the color combo?

I made two layouts to show you. The first is my son's 3rd grade trip to Zion's. He is so funny. He took 100 pictures, but only about 6 or 7 of them had people in them. He is just like my dad. My mom teases him about all the pictures of "mud holes" he has from trips to Yellowstone.
And here is my second layout. Perfect for some pictures I took of my husband and youngest daughter swinging back in June.

Template Freebie

I had been thinking about entering the Brownie Scraps Designer Survivor contest since when I first saw a flier about it a while back. I have been back and forth between wanting to join and not wanting to join (it is still summer and we have some fun stuff still, and, I am homeschooling my 2nd grader starting mid-August).

Then, the night before the deadline, I decided to sign up. Thankfully, the first challenge is an easy one. We had to make a template. So, I am going to have the template free until Monday here on my blog too.

I've never participated in a designer challenge, and I'm not sure how this one works, but I have heard that we will be giving away freebies on our blogs and through the store a lot. So, stick around (and vote for me) and I'll be giving lots more freebies!

Here is the template I did.

First Recital Freebie Mini :)

Hi! I did the color challenge at Stuff to Scrap this month. I needed to scrap my boys' piano recital, so I made a kit that mostly helped me get a good layout. I find that I usually use more papers than elements sometimes. So, I added some elements. Hope you like this kit!! click to download and don't forget to leave some love!!!

Download has expired. You can pick up this kit here.

Here's my layout. I love the soft colors that blend so well together :)

Fruits and Vegetables, With a Garden Twist

I have an awesome new kit out today. It is a collab with The Scrappy Kat. My part is called Fruits and Vegetables, with a Garden Twist. Kat's part is called Fruits and Vegetables, Yummy, Yummy in My Tummy. This year I have been working on a garden. It is about 10x20. Since we live in the desert, it isn't as easy to raise a garden here as it was when we lived in Kansas. In Kansas, we just planted our seeds and with very little care, in a few months, we had a full garden of stuff! Too bad that was right around when I got pregnant with #3 and was sick all the time so I couldn't enjoy it.

So, I have pictures from this year's garden, but I'll probably wait until we get more towards the end and scrap them all. I'll post them when I do :)

Here is a look at my part. It will be on sale this week for $2.50. Click the image to go grab it:
Here are my papers:Here's some QP's that are in my store this week too. They are on sale for $2.00 the whole week. Click on the image to go grab this awesome deal!!
Here's a look at Kat's part. Her focus was more on babies- eating their food. I've got a great layout with just her part below. Click image to go to Kat's blog to get her freebie:
And, here are the layouts. I have an awesome CT!
Chrissy (next two). I love how she used the seed packets in the top picture and how she put the fruit on the tool.

Colleen (next 2). What is there not to LOVE about this top layout!! I love that it is mostly two colors. And her little girl is adorable!
lThe next two are Dana's. Look at how many elements are in this layout! Amazing. And I always like layouts with lots of pictures in it.

This is Haylee's. I love the middle picture! Seems like I have tons of pictures of my kids eating!
This is Jessica's. I love the title and how she used selective coloring in the photo.This is Misty's. I like the leaves peeking out of the pictures. Don't you just want to join them in relaxing?
Tricia had some great pictures that she scrapped of (if I recall right), her mother's tomato garden. I like the elements peeking out from behind the paper.And, thus far, I have done 2 layouts, but I will be doing LOTS more!

This first layout is of my new haircut. I chopped 15 inches off on July 2. I like to do this every 3 or 4 years and donate my hair to charity. It makes me feel good to be able to help. I did this layout for a speed scrap, and one of the things we had to do was selective color. Since I have dark hair, it isn't as obvious that it is colored, but it is. This layout is done with my part.

Here is my youngest, when she was almost 1. Like I said, I have so many baby eating pictures. This layout is done with just Kat's part of the collab.So, both Kat and I have a little freebie today for you. Here's Kat's part. Click to go to her blog.
