Christmas in July

This Friday, July 25th, Christmas will only be 5 months away! Time flies as you get older! LOL! I'm just saying that because it's my birthday today and I turned 22; no more birthdays to look forward to just old age! :-( There is a sale to look forward too at STS though! Click the preview to be directed to the store!

Take A Dip!

It's hard to believe summer is practically over! Only a month left before school starts back up again! Iowa hasn't had much hot weather but there are still many days where I wish I could go to the pool! Take A Dip is a collab freebie by Digi-Designs by Nicole and Nibbles Skribbles and is perfect for all of those pool, bathtime, ocean, beach pics!
Check out the preview of the kit and the layout I created; it is a friends little 2 year old going off of the diving board! Yes, you read that right- 2 years old! I don't think I managed to jump off the diving board until I was about 20! LOL!


Happy Blogoversary to Nicole at Digi-Designs by Nicole! I am so thankful to be on your CT and for everything you do for the digi-scrapping community!

Happy As A Lark

Scraps by Andrea released a fabulous new kit to her store today called Happy As A Lark; this kit was so fun to scrap with, and I scrapped 2 things that make me very very happy! You can see them in the layouts I posted below (one is my mom and the other is Dollar Tree LOL).. It is filled with lots of papers, elements and a really cool alpha! You can pick up a sample of the entire kit with the freebie she is offering on her blog- but you should buy the whole thing, you really will be happy as a lark!

Isn't my mom cute? She is so obsessed with her birds. This is her in the middle of winter going out in her Carharts to feed them!

Okay, okay.. speaking of obsessions- I must say that Dollar Tree is mine. If you have never been to one, I suggest going (at least once a week or more!). I used this for a challenge at STS- isn't that tree perfect!?!

And lastly, something that makes everyone happy, a freebie! I'm giving you the QP of the layout I did of my mom because she is special and so are all of you! So I hope you enjoy it! Leave some love if this QP makes you happy!
