Header created with a scrap kit by the incredible Kristine at WenchdGrafix called Into The Mystic. You HAVE TO visit her store HERE and her blog HERE... what a hoot she is! The swirlys came from a 200X200 gif I had laying around on my hard drive with NO idea who created it (let me know if it's yours). I have no clue about the tube of the girl either... I got it from MQQN and thought it was cute!

I CT for Rebecca PSP!

All That Glitters and QP freebie

RebeccaPSP has an awesome freebie on her blog called "All That Glitters" and I TOTALLY went overboard and used EVERY SINGLE ELEMENT of the kit for my LO, haha. Of course there's a bunch of other papers but I couldn't figure out how to use all of them. Anyway, here's a preview of the kit and below is my LO, which is available as a QP if you'd like.... just click my LO to get it. And make sure you visit Rebecca's blog to snag the kit too. Have a great day!

Just a LO...

Playing again... a simple LO. This was created using DSG's Daily Petals kit by Carena's Designs called Orange Spice.

Whimsical Garden by Rebecca PSP & QP freebie

Rebecca PSP has a new kit called Whimsical Garden available at My Life & Scraps and I had the pleasure of creating a couple LOs with it. Awesome summer colors! She uses beautiful palettes for her creations. Yeah, the pink kind of stands out but I didn't have any other pics, LOL. Above image is clickable.

I also made a QP from the first LO above. Here it is! Please leave some lovin' if you snag it. Have a great day!

She has CU Sunday's and creates the most fabulous kits. AND you can buy this kit now while it's still on sale at Divine Digitals. What a beauty.... thank you Dorothy!

I'm a CT!!!... not sure what I'm in for (yet)

WOW! I never even considered it before, but I was asked to be on Scrappin' Brat's creative team!! I have mixed feelings here... excitement that someone actually LIKES my layouts, but then I'm not sure I really want to make a commitment to "scrapping on demand". This is so new to me but I thought I'd give it a try on a TRIAL basis. I recieved my first kit today SO you'll be seeing a lot of her kits shown off here. First things first.... she has a SALE going on right now... February 13th - 28th!! Go check it out! Her links are under the ad below.

And here's another Valentine I created for the Valentine challenge at OWD. Have a great day!

I FINALLY got to see my new grandson, Arty Jr, last night! Boy oh boy, is he a little chunker, haha! He was born almost a month early and still weighed over 9 pounds! He was in an incubator for the first 20 hours or so "just in case" but now he's hanging out with with his fellow baby friends in the "gallery"!!! I got to hold him for 20 minutes last night and fell in love... how can a Grandma not love such a darling!?! I haven't gotten the pictures off my camera or memory stick yet, but this is one that my son gave me that's ONE HOUR after his birth. You can be sure you'll be seeing more picture of him in the coming days!
