Deck the Halls by Cathy Krenek

Let me first say that I can't believe the holidays are upon us. I am totally floored creating these Christmas pages, (of course using photos from last year) but, PEOPLE, they are already playing Christmas music in the stores!!! What happened to the year? Where did it go? That gives me an idea for a scrapbook. I really need to document important events each month. Maybe that can be my New Years Resolution. I could never do 365 photos. One every day. Could you imagine? I know some people do, but I am not that devoted yet. Although I do take a ton of photos. Okay enough ramblings. Let me get onto why I am really posting. It all ties together though I promise. So I mentioned how stinking awesome Cathy's kit are in my last post. Now you get to see one, and if I can get to the new Give thanks kit you are going to melt, it is so so so so cute!!! I have so many favorite photos from last year I need to get done, so I am sure you will see more of this kit, but until I can get to them, here is two I have had time to do, plus a preview of the kit. Check out her store, and keep your eyes peeled for some new upcoming goodies!

It's Your BIRTHDAY! by Cathy K

I finally got to doing My Darling daughters 6th birthday photos! She has asked for a couple of years now to have a swimming party. I wanted to have a pajama party and maybe have a couple of friends come spend the night and my wonderful friend was going to do everything for me to make this party "Martha Stewart or Oprah worthy." She begged to differ and pleaded for a swimming party. It was the same way with Hannah Montana at the Childrens Museum for her 5th party...never again will we do a childrens museum birthday party. It is a fantastic place to visit, but I am the kind of person that wants a more personal friendly tight affair with close friends and family. Not kids running all over a museum where you can't even find the kids that are in your party. NOPE. Not doing it again. Write it off as a lesson learned. Leading me into the introduction of this fantastic kit by Cathy K designs called it It's Your Birthday. Her kits just keep getting better and better. Wait until you see her Christmas and Thanksgiving kits! They are sure to knock your socks off. I am working on one more layout for her Christmas kit and then I will post a double pager for you. Until then, take a lookie at what I came up with for this one. As always you can run over to her blog or her store at Scrapbook Elements to grab the kit or see what else she may or may not be up to!!!

Fruits of the Spirit Collab kit

I am so bad about posting my LOs here lately. My designers that I create for have release dates. Which means that I can not post my LO's until the kit has released. So the date then comes and goes and I forget to post. I need to get better about it. Going back I want to make sure to get you over to Melissa Daniels store at Scrap dish to grab this beautiful collab she did with Royanna for Studio RA designs. There were several kits that went with this one collab. I have only worked with a couple so far, but do intend to work with each of them. I just have to find the right photos. Using Fruits of the spirit LOVE I made:

Ghost train LO's

The beginning of October, the Ghost train took off and was the biggest collab train I have laid my eyes on. I downloaded as much as I could before I got lost in all that I had on my hard drive. I decided it was time to get to it and use the goodies that I spent so much valuable time downloading unzipping and filing. Afterall, I can't collect and store, I gotta collect, use and then store! I think that part of my addiction to digital scrapping is probably collecting the products. As it was with my paper scrapbooking. I am pretty sure my husband will agree to that. So without further ado, here are a couple pages I did last night really quickly. I have tons of pictures to get done still from the kids in their costumes, so I am sure you will see more of this trains goodies before I am done.
