Let the Christmas season begin!

Did you survive the big shopping weekend??? We're done shopping for the boys already. Toys go fast so we have to get them quick! I'm excited to have this picture of my boys with Santa since this is the first time they wanted to sit with him. I have one picture of my oldest son with Santa when he was 4 months old but that's it. Every year I ask and every year they keep a safe distance from the bearded man. We were at the mall Friday night and they spotted Santa from the escalator and exclaimed "Let's go see Santa!" Well, there was no line so we headed over and they hopped right up on his lap for this cute picture!

Bring on the snow!

I thought this was an adorable quickpage available for free over at Sugar Snap Scraps . We had unseasonably warm weather yesterday but they say snow in on the way for Thanksgiving. I love warm weather but I'm ready for a Colorado blizzard! These pics were taken last November right around this time. If I don't have time to blog again before Thanksgiving...I wish everyone a happy and safe holiday!

Design challenge layout

Brad and Staple by Tracy Collins-Tag Sale;
Font- Angelina
I decided to do the Tip of the Week over at Scrapper's Guide this week. The challenge was to use 6 or more squares of background paper in a layout and they had to be from a Scrapper's Guide kit. I just love that site and her weekly newsletters, lots of great tips! Hope everyone is having a nice Saturday :)

New Kit and Freebie!

Another one for the dog and cat lovers out there called Doodle Pets! This is a happy, playful looking little kit, don't you think? It's hard to really see everything in the preview but I listed the contents in MY STORE. It will be on sale for $3.49 for a few days so grab it now and send me some sample layouts, I love to see them! Apparently a lot of stores are having issues with Paypal so if you encounter problems, please let me know. Hopefully Paypal is working on this. While you are here, grab the freebie below (for personal use only).

Sneak Peek at my next kit

Here is my girl Kayla lounging on the porch...her favorite place to watch the world go by. I'm so close to getting this kit done if I could just get a few minutes to myself!!!!! I need to add some word art because what's a pet kit without all those cute pet phrases, huh? By the way, the name of this kit is 'Doodle Pets'. There will, of course be a freebie to go along with it...stay tuned and have a great friday!!!!

Sad, but true...

My son has received 2 ant farms as gift so far and I quickly stuffed them into the back of the closet hoping he would forget about them. It was inevitable, though...I finally had to mail-order some ants for him. I'm not extremely squeamish when it comes to things like that but I was kinda dreading having an ant farm in my house because I really didn't know what to expect. We are currently using the Gel Ant Farm that is maintenance free so all we had to do was put the ants in and watch. I have to admit, I'm hooked! I really love to watch the little guys feverishly go to town digging and working from dusk till dawn. I've spent more time watching them than the boys have! I even go in right before I go to bed to check on them and they look so cute curled up next to each other sleeping. I think I'm getting rather attached and will probably be very sad when they die in a month or two :(. Seems like a sad little existence. If I could tell them apart, I probably would've named each one of them! I must do a layout soon :)
Thank you to all that answered my QP question. The conclusion I'm coming to is there are more out there that dislike them than like them. However, those that do like them would like the 8.5x11 size. I've decided that my next freebie will NOT be a quickpage (unless I throw one in as an extra) but if I do any in the future I will add additional ones in 8.5x11sizes! Off to work on my kit and watch Desperate Housewives :)

Happy Digital Scrapbooking Day!

I hope you are all busy doing challenges, shopping the sales, gathering freebies and getting layouts done! I REALLY wanted to have a freebie to give out today but no such luck. I've been formulating ideas for a new kit all week and last night I finally started creating something I like. I should have it done next week with freebie to go along with it.'s another one for the dog/cat lovers! I know everybody is busy shop/blog hopping today but if you have a moment can you please drop me a note and let me know if you like quickpages as freebies or would you rather have something else. I really like to make them but I don't know if people really like to use them. Have fun today!
