Nooo, not yet!

If you have a child older than say, three days old, you can probably attest to the fact that they grow up much too quickly. I keep telling mine that they're not allowed, but they keep on doing it anyway. So when I saw Simply Scrappy's new kit, Trendy Tween:

I immediately thought of my "big" girl. Who is SIX. And acts like she's 14 or so.

There is a TON of great Trendy Tween stuff to be found at Elemental Scraps too. There's the kit itself, a template pack (one of which I used on this page), some really cool clusters (like the frame on my page) and worn papers (the only thing I *didn't* use here!) Or, you could just snag the entire bundle while it's on sale for just $7.50, because you're gonna want it all. :)

Mixed Melodies

Sooo...now that I'm (mostly) back into my scrap groove, I'm thrilled to have become a part of another great creative team - for Simply Scrappy! She has SO many great kits coming up, and the first one I got to play with was just released today. Check out Mixed Melodies:

Yeah, you saw that right - two kits in one, one girly and one boy-ish, PLUS templates. I'll definitely be coming back to this kit (over and over and over) but only had time to make one page with before today's release date:

Remember, you can always click on my pages to see them full-size. ;) Mixed Melodies is on sale now at Elemental Scraps for $7.48 - a great price for everything that comes in the kit! :)

No, not right now...already been there and done that for this summer. And after middle-of-the-night deflated air mattress issues during our last trip, I'm not in a HUGE hurry to go again. Maybe this fall. Anywho...I found the cutest little kit to scrap some camping pictures in Camp Iwannascrap by Double Dutch Designs:

Here are a couple of pages from our most recent camping trip:

The first layout was created with Template Set Matted by Le Pingouin Designs, which will be available at Digital Scrap Cafe on August 20. The second page was created with Template Set 4, also by Le Pingouin and available now for $1.99. And to complete the DSC trifecta, Camp Iwannascrap is also available there for $4.99. :)

Super girly!

Okay, folks, bear with me as I work out some photo posting difficulties on the blog...but here are some more new pages in the meantime. You can always click on MY pages to see them full-size...unfortunately, I'm not sure what to do yet to make previews any less gargantuan. I'm working on it! ;)

As a testament to just how far I am...I finally finished up a couple of pages using the super cute June 2010 collab from Digital Scrap Cafe (still available for $4.99!), Girlish:

Is that not the cutest kit?! Here are a couple of pages I whipped up with it:

And then there's another adorable kit from LawTeeDa - this would be *perfect* if you happen to have twins in your life, but it's pretty great for siblings too. It's called Peas in a Pod - on sale now for $4.50 at ScrapMatters:

They're not twins, but my girls definitely fit the description!

Oh! Just one more using LePingouin's Big Pics templates (see previous post) and Tootlebugz's kit Petite Fleur:

Yeah, that's a good place to leave you for now. :) I'll be tweaking the blog, saying a little prayer, maybe throwing a few things at the screen...and then I'll be back with more!

Holy scrap funk, Batman!

I don't know what got into me...my scrap mojo just up and abandoned me, and apparently decided to take the whole summer off. Thanks to the lovely ladies at the JM Digi Scrap board and the Scrapathon they hosted this weekend, though, I've once again ventured into Photoshop and made a few new pages to share. Maybe I can stick with it, since I'm woefully behind on my scrapping!

To begin with, I backed up to LawTeeDa's Christmas in July kit, Merry & Bright, which is available at ScrapMatters for $5.99:

We actually had some SNOW this past winter! This page was created using a template from LePingouin's Big Pics set, available for $1.99 at Digital Scrap Cafe:

And then there's one of my favorite snowy days that deserved to be scrapped as well:

More pics coming momentarily, as the photo uploader sees fit to give me a hard time after being away for so long...
