On My Knees Wordart Freebie!

Happy Hump Day!! How’s you’re week going? Mine? It’s an “Eh” kind of week. I got jipped out of my Mother’s Day by a now 5 year old little girls Birthday Party, spent the entire day cleaning & preparing for said party, only to have to clean again when it was over! *sigh* Oh well, the price I pay for having a child the first week of May I suppose! LOL! So, I’m hoping to ship the kids away this weekend so I can enjoy a day of rest & peace and quiet! Anyone want a 5 & 6 year old for the weekend?!?! They come with free candy!! 😀 Seriously, though… this will only be the 2nd time since last October that I’m sending them away! I need a break sooooo bad!!! hahahaha……. Anyway, let’s get on with why I’m here before I bore you all with my blabbering 🙂

I wanted to show off one of my New favorite Collab Kits! It’s called On My Knees and was created with Faithbooking in mind by the creative talents of Darlene Haughin Designs & Susan Godfrey Designs available exclusively at theStudio. I love the idea of Faithbooking, the idea to capture your Faith in a book to share with others. Of course, I immediately thought of my children and how this could benefit them. So, I decided to start making some Scripture Cards in 4X6 size, easy to print out and slip inside a photo album for the perfect reminder of our Faith! And this kit was that perfect finishing touch to these pages, it’s just so beautiful!


You can get this kit for 25% off right now, which brings it to only $4.50 for 20 blended/patterned papers, 12 cardstock papers, 2 full alphas, and 64 elements!  And, if Faithbooking isn’t your style, this kit can be used for so many other occasions and especially for those everyday moments!  Here’s a peek at two of the Scripture Cards I created using this kit, which will lead me to your goodie for today!  😀


I used bits and pieces of the kit to do the Wordart for these cards and I love the way they turned out!  So, I asked if I could share with all of you and was given the go ahead! YAY!  Enjoy your wordart freebie for today!  Thank you Darlene & Susan!!  🙂

Challenge FREEBIES! Come & Get ’em!

Hi guys!  I have two challenge freebies for you today! Woopie!!! LOL!

First, is the Featured Designer Challenge for Feb 15-28 at theStudio – this round we are featuring Darlene Haughin Designs (YAY!) and she has a beautiful mini addon FREEBIE for you guys!  I’ve been CT’ing for Darlene for awhile now and I absolutely love her designs!   She has a classic/shabby/paper scrap kind of style that suits me perfectly!  Her kits are so easy to use, the pieces just seem to fall so naturally on your pages!  For this challenge she is offering up the Calabria Addon that coordinates with the brand new Calabria full kit available at theStudio.

And, a layout I made with this kit that I am in love with at the moment! :p

And, here is the perfectly coordinated Calabria Addon FREEBIE she is supplying for the challenge!  Head on over to theStudio’s forum and pick up this freebie!  BUT WAIT!  If you post a layout using ONLY this mini kit, you will be entered to WIN the full size kit!! Purty Cool, eh?! You can find more details in the forum 😉

Next up is my February 11 Template Challenge @ theStudio……. uh, a little late!  BUT, I’ve extended the deadline for this challenge until March 15th to compensate for my tardiness, I really am sorry about that!  So, here’s a look at the template.  You can head on over to theStudio’s forum and snag it up!  And, if you make a layout, why not post it, I’d love to see what you do with it!  What’s that?!  Why, yes, it does look similar to my layout above! huh, fancy that! 😛  theStudio is undergoing a Challenge Reward Makeover right now, so I’m unsure exactly what you get for posting, but I DO know it’s going to be something GOOOOODDDD!!!  So post that layout!  😀

You can get the DOWNLOAD in the forum HERE

Happy Scrapping all!  Enjoy! 🙂

Okay, now back to Scrapping Survivor!!  I am proud to say that I have made it through to WEEK 4 of the contest!!  I am still shocked I made it this far, and this weeks challenge is just that…. a challenge!!!  Here’s a peek at the layouts that have gotten me to this point:  (click images for full credits)

Scrapping Survivor2 Week 1 Entry

Scrapping Survivor2 Week 2 Entry

What?! You recognize this?!  Why, yes… it IS the layout I used as inspiration for the template challenge this month!!  hehehe….

Scrapping Survivor2 Week 3 Entry

I’m working hard on Week 4’s layout, but it’s giving me some problems here!  We are required to use Camouflage print papers & Blend our photos into the background!  Eeeeekkkkk!  I’ve never blended a photo before!  I’ve always tried to make my pages look as close as possible to “paper scrapped” so blending was never even a thought to me!  I guess I better start learning some new tricks here if I want to win this thing!! hehehe…  wish me luck! I’m off to make a killer layout before Sunday!!!  Have a great day everyone!!


Hi all! First, the freebie! I posted some Brag Book Freebies on the SAS Blog! I created this album using the NEW June ’09 SAS Mega, Me & My Dad! Come on by and pick them up!

Okay, now to tell you my news!! First, I was accepted onto the VICE Squad at Digi Scrap Addicts!! Whoohoo! I am now a Forum Moderator. I’m pretty new over there, so I’m still learning the ropes. And, it seems the other ladies get to the issues before I do, but hopefully I catch on soon & get my rear in gear! lol If you haven’t been there yet, you’re missing out on LOTS-O fun!! Those ladies really know how to make you laugh. There’s never a dull moment!

Second order of business… I am now on Darlene Haughin’s CT!! I was so honored & a bit surprised when Darlene asked me to join her team. Of course, I snatched up the offer very quickly. I love Darlene’s designs and I got to play with one of her kits already. I picked One Spring Morning as my first kit to work with because the colors are just so wonderful! Darlene has a very classic style that fits my scrapping style so perfectly.

I combined this kit with The Details Template Set by AmyM Designs! I said it before and I’ll say it again…. I LOVE AMY’S TEMPLATES!!! They are just so perfect and make gorgeous layouts in a snap! I am going to be very sad when June is over!

And here’s the layout I created:
