I have decided to take some time to devote to trying to update my blog.  I want to change a few things and add some things that I want to share with you.  For now I am starting small.  I am nowhere near the computer genious that I wish I was so this will no doubt take quite some time.  I will just say that for now I intend on making an active effort to continue to try new things out and try my best to learn more about blogger.  I guess in a way this is a LATE EXTREMELY LATE new years resolution.

So here is a my attempt for the night.  The strikethrough and background change.  Did anyone notice I added snow several weeks ago?  I guess I need to look at taking that off now!lol

Scrap Gratia Artis volume 3 Circular Reasoning Template

I have found a new website that I have briefly mentioned getting on the creative team over there. I received my first assignment and chose to work with a template kit set from Altered Seas called Scrap Gratia Artis volume 3: Circular Reasoning. (Just click on the link and it will take you to her store at DigiScrapDriveIn.) It has been many many moons since I worked with a template. I have to say, I really enjoyed it. I didn't have to worry about what peices were going where or anything. It was a nice break though I did feel like I was cheating a little bit. It was awesome to get to sit back and drag and drop and choose the colors that I wanted and just put them where I wanted them to be. When I chose to work with the templates, I also needed a kit to fill the holes right? Of course. So I chose to work the with daily download kit called Renew also over at DSDI. This month is by Daybreak Scraps and Mad Genious Designs. So I will also include a link to their stores over at DSDI. I mentioned this Daily download a few posts down too! If you have missed too much, just head on over and for a small fee you can grab the kit all at once instead of waiting!!!
Peek at the templates and what I created!

Icey Winter by JJ Scrapping

I have had some great opportunities to play with some awesome kits from my new CT that I am now on over at JJ Scrapping. The latest one you can find over at Digi Design Resort or Go Digital Scrapping called Icey Winter. It is not her newest kit by any means but a fabulous one for sure! I loved this kit and all its beautiful colors. Very much a winter kit but very simple for those non-snowy photos! I just loved it!
Here are the pages I created and peak at the kit!

Several weeks back I asked one of my designers Melissa Daniel (I am on her Creative team), if she could create a cheerleader so I could design a thank you card for my daughter to make some cards with. She was so kind and became inspired to run with the idea. Well voila! I now present to you RAH RAH SIS BOOM BAH. I was so excited to sit and play with it to create a couple layouts, and then my family came down with another battle of the yuckies. I am feeling better, but my poor little man, isn't. I am taking him in to the dr today. He seems to have had a tough 20 months of battling everything from the common cold, to ear infections to the flu bugs to bronchitis. It is so hard having sickies in your house and when your little ones are knocked down by the bugs, even more difficult. He has gotten some rest which allowed me to finally get a couple pages done. I would love to share the kit with you. Run over to Scrapdish and pick it up for $5.50. And if you like what you see go check out her blog. She always has something great going on, I really enjoy reading it!

Winter Sparkle Red Kit

Ok so I mentioned in my last post that while I was over checking out some new creative teams I could apply for, I found a one kit call for wind it up. (the kit I last worked with.) However when I sent her a quick application, I mentioned my search for some new teams. Long story short, I am now on Jenns team (aka JJ Scrapping)!!! I am sooooooo excited. I have now played with another kit called Winter Sparkle Red which you can find over at Go Digital Scrapbooking. I just love her style and can't wait to dive into another. Heaven knows I have so many photos to get caught up on. Amazing how behind you can get in just a few months if you don't stay on top of it. I am praying for some extra time, however, my extra time lately has been caring for sick kiddies. So enjoy the pages I did, and run over to GDS and pick up her kit!!!

I was recently over at Digishop talk hunting around for some new teams to work on. I kind of have been a bit lazy after a couple of my designers retired, and I was super sad...but now the time has come and thus my search began. I happened across this GORGEOUS kit called Wind it up designed by JJ Scrapping over at Digi Design Resort. I am honored that she accepted my request to work with it. You should head over to Digi Design Resort and check out all the pages that she got! They are beautiful! And everyone truly did the kit justice. It is such a great kit and the possibilities on what to do with it are just endless. So don't sit there!!! Run over to DDR and check out the kit and all the pages all of the amazing talent came up with!
