I am officially

a new designer at Snaps2Scrap! I am thrilled beyond belief! I uploaded my first kit, "Harvest Memories" to the store (on sale this week at 50% off).

You can get it at my store. And just to tease you a bit, I've created a Quick Page for you to use:

I'm already working on my next kit.

Happy Birthday Mrs Miles

aka Barb, aka Olivia Dorazio!!! I sure hope you have a super great day.

I think it's so sad

that photos go unclaimed. Suzan, "Thrifty Collage Artist", found a box of unclaimed photos and has been giving a few of the old ones out on her blog.
So I've been trying to figure out a way to use some of them. I created this layout for the Lazy Days Kit by Mama Mia. I used deftone stylus as the font because I thought it looked like "old" writing.

I am happy to present

a little known scrap site to you. It's a heritage scrap site called Snaps2Scrap and the owner, Cheryl McCain, has just put out a designer call at DST. So far two new designers have joined the site, Kay Eflin and Ruth Davis. Both are super heritage designers! And if you can't tell, I'm super excited to be associated with this site.

Kay has designed the site BLOG. She's done a wonderful job and she's even provided her "Country Gentlemen" kit as a gift to everyone who stops by. I thought it would be a nice start to the CHALLENGES if you first stop by the BLOG, pick up the kit, and then create a layout using that kit. Post the layouts in the gallery and go to the Blog Challenge thread in the Forum and give us a link. You'll see my posting gift to you in the first thread. I do hope you'll join me in the challenge.

If you are interested in preserving your heritage, come by the Snaps2Scrap site and check it out.

from Mama Mia at Sophia Sarducci.
I used Mama Mia's See the USA (has all the states with their facts as overlays); and the September Grab Bag (what goodies are in there!!!).
I took the photos.

I'm thrilled!

I got accepted to be on the permanent CT for Mama Mia at Sophia Sarducci! What a talented designer and I know I'm really lucky to be on the CT. Now I get even more goodies to play with.

So, for my first layout for Mama Mia, I created a SURPRISE for my DH's 65th birthday.

I used Time Marches On kit by Mama Mia at Sophia Sarducci, Freestyle Script font and my photos. I love the richness of the papers and the wonderful elements Mama Mia creates.

September Grab Bag

from Olivia Dorazio is just chock full of styles!!!!
I had so much fun making this layout. I used a photo from It's About Time by Amy Pearson at Scrapbook Graphics, the September Grab Bag by Olivia Dorazio from Sophia Sarducci, DD Designer Pack by Olivia Dorazio, Sweet Music and Cuppacoffee from Mrs. Miles' blog (that's how I created the background paper) and the font is Bickley Script.
I can't tell you how many styles are in Olivia's September Greab Bag; but there are a lot. I also think it's amazing that the Grab Bag is OK for personal, Scrap for Hire and Commercial use.
