Its December!

That means a lot of holiday decorations and treats.  And not just on our homes and Christmas trees.  The digi world is full of beautiful kits,  wonderful mega colabs, and some freebies too. I am particularly fond of one kit, exclusively available at and perfect for those of us who never see snow, can wear flip flops most of the year and decorate palm trees as well as Christmas trees.

Seaside Santa

My Christmas blog wear was made with this kit – the penguin is too stinkin cute!  Not to mention Santa and his reindeer Smile I just love it! And Im sure you will too.

I’m so excited

I am very lucky to be on the Cream of the Crop team at Artisan notebook.  I am responsible for completing one layout a month using a designer of my choice and the layout gets published.  Well, this month my absolute favorite layout I have done all year got FEATURED in the magazine as HOT TREND.  I never would of thought this in a million years …. but here is the layout:

The layout was done using paper from BubbleScraps Designs and Elements from Farrah’s Creations (Jordan kit). 

WOOT!  My day just got a little brighter :-)

Sweet Summertime

We are getting ready for a wonderful vacation with some great friends but the oil spill in the Gulf threatens to ruin all the fun.  I started taking pictures in April before the spill happened but have been taking pics almost every weekend since.  Its my attempt to document the disaster as well as preserve memories for my wonderful kids.  I have been fortunate to work with some great designers and have great beach kits to showcase these pics. 

This layout was made using Sweet Summertime from Polka Dot Plum designs (available here).  The picture was taken the 2nd weekend we took the boat out this season …there will be more coming soon.
