Game time!

This month has been busy with something that I actually never saw coming: T-ball! Rachael isn't exactly an athletic child, but when her two best friends both decided to play, she wanted to give it a go too. We've had a blast with practices (she's made a great new friend on her team, and I've made a great new friend in the little girl's mom) and game days have been way more fun than I anticipated. We're near the end of the season now, and I have lots more pics to scrap, but all of these are from the very first game on May 1st. Double Dutch Design's kit Sliding Into Home was just perfect for our T-ball pics, right down to the orange papers that match her uniform!

My little slugger:

Both of these pages were created with Template Set 3 by Le Pingouin Designs, which will be available at Digital Scrap Cafe on June 1st. Sliding Into Home is available there now for $4.99 - perfect for your own little T-ball/softball/baseball player or fan!


My favorite word in the world. :)  I'm a little behind (okay, a lot behind) and should have had pages with this kit finished in time for Mother's Day. But, better late than never, right? Introducing...Dear Mother by Valarie Ostrom Designs:

Being mom to two little girls, I just loved all the pink in this one...

And then, of course, I had to do a page with my own mommy as well. :)

This is such a clean, classic kit with the pink, black, white, polka dots...but you'll have to wait just a couple of days to get your hands on it. It's available at Sunshine Studio Scraps, which is currently being redesigned - it'll be up and running again on June 1st!

Rain, rain, here to stay...

I always thought that April showers brought May flowers...but around here, it seems as though April showers just brought May showers. It's rained and rained and rained for the past week or so, and as much as I love the rain, I'm a little tired of it at this point. And right in the middle of it all, Sus Designs made a kit just for me! (Okay, not really - but it sure feels like it!) Check out Puddle Jumpers:

One of our rainy afternoons:

Some umbrella and rain boots pics would be perfect for this kit, but we are unfortunately lacking in the rain boots I also did a more happy, sunshiney page with this kit...

Got a little rain falling in your life? Or is it all sunshine or rainbows? Either way, this kit pretty much has you covered - and it's on sale for just $2.99 now at Bits2Kits!

Oh my!

I've really been MIA from the scrap world this month! I've never done "scrap goals" for myself before, but I think I'll do just that for June, and see if I can't get back in the swing of things. :)  Meanwhile, here are a couple of pages from LawTeeDa's latest kit, A Day at the Zoo:

It's been two years since our last zoo trip - time for another visit this summer!

Have zoo pics of your own to scrap? There are soooo many cute elements in this kit (it hurt me not to use the penguin or the giraffe, so I definitely have more work to do!) It's only $4.50 at ScrapMatters - go go go!!

Digging my way out...

...of a scrapping funk that's had me not wanting to scrap at all lately. But, there are still these adorable dance pictures patiently waiting to be scrapped, and the perfect little kit that I had found to scrap them with - Love Is All Around (and matching word art) by Pixielily Designs:

I also used templates from Le Pingouin's new Template Set Tilted (coming soon to Digital Scrap Cafe) for both of these pages...

UGH, it was only a month ago and I already can't wait for next year's dance! :)  This kit is perfect for Valentine's Day or ANY "love" layout - it's only $4 ad DSC, and the matching wordart is on sale now for just $.90.
