What do you think ??? If you like it and want to download it, please hop over to my MScraps Template Challenge thread and it would be great if you would participate as well :)

Goodday to you :) I hope you are having a great weekend. Mine is pretty relaxed. Just the way I like my weekends :) I am here to share another QP freebie with you. YAY I do have a teeny tiny request though. I am competing in the Battle of the Creative Teams for By Becca and I would love for you to vote for me & the other girls in the team. You can check out the layouts here. You probably have to be registered at DSA to be able to view the layouts. If you don't want to register......just skip that part and vote for us here. Find By Becca and you are ready to vote :) Oh, you wanted to see the QP as well. Ofcourse :) Here it is...........

I know not everyone scraps photos of babies so there are two QPs in the download. One with the wordart/journaling and one without it.

You can download the QP here or by clicking on the layout. Thank you in advance for voting and let me know if you like my QP :)

The amazing designers from MScraps and 9th&Bloom have made a collaboration kit called Overflow with Beauty in aid of Unicef's appeal for Pakistan. The release date of Overflow with Beauty is October first (tomorrow) so I cant show you the preview of the kit yet but I can show you a sneak peak......

I'm not only here to tease you though. We (CT members) were allowed to create quickpages to give away on our blogs and that is why I am also posting this. I made a QP for you all and I hope you like it so much you are going to buy the Overflow with Beauty kit too. Here is my layout:

and here is the QP:

You have two ways to download the QP. You can click here or on the preview above.

I'll be back tomorrow to update this blogpost with the full preview of Overflow with Beauty and a link to the store.

Have a great & safe day everyone!

I really need to start updating this blog more often. LOL I just wanted to show you a layout I just recently made. It is called Dream and I used photos of our lovely neighbour's girl. She is adorable!

I used two items for this LO. The first one is a kit by Ninie Designs called My Lovely Garden:

The other item I used is a template pack by Busy Bee Designs called Easy Breeze Vol.3:

That's it for me today. There is a thunderstorm heading our way so I guess I'd better shut down my laptop.



Jun 24, 2010

I found this gorgeous challenge template over at MScraps and I couldn't resist scrapping with it.

Here is what I did with the template.....

I kept it pretty much intact because I just loved the simplicity of the LO. Here are the credits.....

I told you I would be back for a second post today :) I have a blog train freebie for you! I am participating in MScraps Blog Train (you'll soon find out why ;)) and I decided to make photo overlays as a freebie. I've used them before and thought it would be great to make my own. So, I went out with my camera to take some macro photos of gorgeous textures and two days later, my photo overlays freebie was finished. Here you go.....

I hope you like my photo overlays enough to download them here and try them out. I have also included a tutorial (in pdf & doc file) on how to use the overlays. It's not difficult but mine might be a bit different than others you've used.

I wont take up any more of your time since you are probably ready to continue with your blog train. Next stop is the gorgeous blog of Ashley aka Hazel Olive Designs. Oh, if Ashley hasnt posted anything patient. Because of the time difference between all the blog train participants it can be tricky for everyone to post at the same time :) Thanks for understanding.

Have a great iNSD !!!




I know I have neglected my blog badly but, dont be shocked, I have two posts for you today. Crazy, no ??? heehee First I wanted to let you know about a RAK I received from the sweet Litabells Designs :) She gave me a coupon so I could pick up her first grabbag and I am so excited to say that it is amazing! I love it and I am sure you will too.


Isnt this everything you need to make an amazing layout? I so want to scrap with it but right now I have to pay attention to my laundry and make dinner soon as well. I promise I will show a page using these designs very soon. Oh, you can pick up the grabbag here :)

I hope you'll be back later for a great surprise :)

I just found the cutest freebie and I just had to share it with you. The freebie is made by PouYou Designs and the kit is called Pet Shop. Look.......

Cute, no ???? You can download the freebie here :)

I am off to do some last minute Easter shopping and I dont think I will be posting anything else today so Happy Easter everyone !!

I have been pretty busy making layouts and this blog is my little showcase to show them to the world. Can you believe that the layouts I am going to show you today dont have Jasper in them !!! I know, crazy. haha

Let´s start with the first one. It is one of two RAKs for my bestest friend Jenna. I used photos of her adorable girl.

This layout is called Sweet Thing and I just love the vibrant colors in this layout.

I used a great collaboration kit for the LO. I used a template from Amy Martin - Spacey Templates Mini v6 and the name of the kit is Rainbows & Lollipops and the designers are Monalisasmiles and decrow Designs........

The second RAK for Jenna is this one...

The photo was just perfect for the kit I used. The kit is called A Cosy Moment and the designer is Seni Designs.

The last layout is one I made with photos of my favorite female singer, Pink. She just rocks!

For this layout I used Kristen Rice - Dazzle, Joyce Paul Designs & Jazzmin Designs - My Love and Kasia Designs - Twilight [no longer available, sorry].

That´s it. Have a great week everyone !!



Mar 2, 2010

Yes yes yes, I am back! And yes, I blogged yesterday too so who knows, I might finally keep this blog updated :) heehee

I have two layouts to show you.I had a lot of fun creating these.The first layout is called These Small Moments and I found such a cute photo of Jasper when he was still a baby. Oi, I miss those days esp. when he is giving me a hard time! LOL

I used a kit designed by Erin's Dreams called Thankful:

The second layout is called Bathtime:

The kit I used for this layout is called A Little Birdie Told Me and that is also designed by Erin's Dreams:

One more thing. If you like the last kit, check this out:

Just click on the image to go to Erin's Dreams store.

That's it from me today. I am off to do some cleaning. It has to be done :)



Mar 1, 2010

I made a few new layouts but I am only allowed to show you one right now. The others are made with designs that are not released yet so you have to wait :)

Crisdam Designs has a really cute kit called Play Days and I found the perfect photo to scrap with it. I did have another photo in mind but I couldnt find that one (ever happen to you ?!?! haha). The layout is called Need for Speed...

And here is a preview of the kit I used for it. Cute, no ???

Hugz & have a great week !!

I havent been around for a few days. My son had surgery last wednesday. He is doing great though. I am amazed at the speed he is recovering. I guess that's children for ya :) I managed to squeeze out a LO today. I think I have two to show you. One I made today and the second I totally forgot to upload to galleries. That happens sometimes :)

The first LO is called So Sweet. I had to use cutie photos of my son. He actually let me take photos and almost didnt ruin the photos ! LOL

The main kit I used for the So Sweet LO is called Cherish and it is a collaboration kit by Litabells Designs & MCP Designs:

The second LO I want to show you is called Winter. I had a rough time scrapping this LO. I think I restarted it like three times, maybe even four. I am pretty pleased how it turned out but I wish I had more mojo at the moment.

The kit I used for this kit is called Winter Dream by Crisdam Designs.

That's it from me. I better publish this post soon before my computer reboots again (I am having huge computer problems and we cant find a solution. Very frustrating !!!).



Feb 12, 2010

I just finished a layout for a great designer, July Designs. I am guesting for her and I am really excited about that :) Her designs are gorgeous !!!

My layout is called Never Cold and I used photos from Jasper when he was 1 year & 12 days old. I melt everytime I see these photos :) Here is the layout I made:

The kit I used is called Winters End:

I am out of here. I have to pick up my son from school :)



I think I am allowed to tell this news but I recently started scrapping again and the day I did I found an amazing CT Call for Scrapable. I applied and now I am a Site CT Member for Scrapable !! I am really happy about this. Today is the grand re-opening of Scrapable and I want to invite you to come and join us in all the fun :) It is a great community and I know you'll love it there !!

There are lots of fun challenges and you can even win Adobe products. Who wouldnt want to win that ?!?!

Hope to see you there !



Feb 8, 2010

Can you guess what I did ?? I dont think you can. Well, I made an alpha :) haha You can really see that it has been made by a beginner but I thought I would add it to my blog and offer it to you as a freebie :) Maybe the fact that it is a freebie will persuade you to download it. The alpha includes uppercase & lowercase and also a few extras which I miss when I buy an alpha sometimes.

Here it is. It is called Block Party:

I have found a new respect for designers. Making this alpha took a while and it didnt turn out the way I hoped. It was supposed to be distressed but you cant really tell on the preview. You will see it when you open the font in Photoshop but still....I would've liked it to be a bit more grungy.

If you like what you see you can download the font here :) Please leave a comment and let me know what you think.

Hugz & have a great week !!

I took a break from scrapbooking but it looks like my creativity came back and I am really excited about that. I was getting angry at myself for not being able to scrap anymore but I made 4 layouts in 2 days and I think that is pretty good :) I am going to show you 2 of those layouts.

My first layout is called Cute Baby Boy and I found these photos on a DVD when I was looking for photos to scrap. These photos of my son Jasper while he is taking a bath are just too adorable and had to use them for a LO.

The kit I used for this LO is called Charmed and the designer of that kit is My Creative Pixels.

The second layout is called Explore, Dream & Feel and also features my cutie babyboy :)

The kit I used is called Hoo Loves Ya? by Litabells Designs.

Hope you liked what I showed you and see you soon !



Oh no, I cannot believe I just deleted the entire history of this blog. I feel a bit sad now and just realized I should've backed it up but there is nothing I can do about that anymore :(

Anyway, I did want to start over with this blog so I had to remove all my older posts and I also gave my blog a new look. I hope you like it :)

I'll be back in a bit with some new LOs and some news but I am not sure if I am allowed to tell yet.
