Free Friday #16

Ok. I'm up now and ready to go. Working from home and watching the kiddos has been a challenge this summer. We are having way too much fun and I am not finding too much time to scrapbook. I did manage to squeeze this one last week.

As promised...today's free file is a Loopy Ribbon!

Have a great weekend!

free friday

will be late today..Check back this afternoon. What can I say? It's summer. I slept in. :)


I am a dork.

I am addicted to blogs, reading about scrapbooking. I am on my PC every night and almost always read the CK blog. Except of course when they post my pages!!! For the third time in a row, I missed the post featuring my page. Dork.
You can see Mandy's post right here. Thanks Mandy! Maybe next time I'll see three days earlier!


Free Friday #15

Today is a very happy day! I found out that I am 100% going to summer CHA in July. I have dreamed of attending for years and now it is finally happening!!! I'm more excited about this than the trip to Disney!

Today's freebie is a simple little star. I use star on my layout all the time. This will come in handy for all those summer sporting events.

Have a great weekend!


CK July/August

Did you check out Mandy Douglass' "Boys to Men" article in CK this month? She added more layout ideas online and included another one of mine! Thanks Mandy - this boy mama loved your article!



July WIP Kit

Wow. I got my July kit from Trish late last week. New papers from Echo Park. I have been one scrap happy girl playing with this beauty. Get on over there and get one for yourself before they are all gone. :)


Free Friday #14

You thought I was going to lame out once again...wrong! I am finally able to say I got my act together this week. I'm so organized I may even scrapbook this weekend. Gasp. It's been a fun first week out of school for the kids. They have been to the library a couple of times for summer programs, saw Shrek 4 and Prince of Persia, pool, playground, lots of baseball. Wow - all in one week. Tonight the little guys and I stopped at this new junk store called 5 Below. Everything in it is five bucks or less. FOURTY dollars later we left with 16 packs of Lego Mini figures, two packs of GoGos, 24 pieces of candy, one ring, one bracelet and two energy drinks from me.They are not getting all of this loot in one night. Three figures a piece for today. The rest is bride bait for doing summer homework!

Have you seen these new packs of  Lego Mini figures? My boys have been going crazy waiting for them to come out. Sometimes they try and convince me to buy a $40 Lego set just to get the figures inside. Lego does a great job of marketing to my children by sending them a free "magazine" each month...full of ads for new toys. I'm not much better. I love Legos too. It's one of the few toys I don't mind spending hours playing with. (This mom does not play Pokemon.) As soon as they saw these, they went nuts. There 16 figures in all to collect. The problem is, they are packaged so that you can't see what you are getting. It's like baseball cards. You keep buying until you get all the one you want. We did pretty good. Out of 6 packages we opened, we only have one duplicate. The Clown. If anyone wants to swap for a clown, let me know. I may be able to swing a bargain with Cooper.

Here is your free cutting file for today...Double Scallop Border!

Leave me some comments! Just to see if anyone is still reading this blog after I have neglected it so much in May! Have a great weekend!


Proof I have been in La-La Land

I didn't even see that my friend Jill had posted this on the Jillibean blog last week. Duh. Thanks Jill! It was fun!


Mosh Posh June

The Gallery went live this weekend for the June Mosh Posh kit! Here is what I created with this beautiful kit:
You knew it was coming...finally got to scrap my favorite photo of 2010!

This was made with our sketch for the month. I added the chipboard letters and buttons.

Added the Thickers.

After my dad read the journaling on this he said, "Geez, I'm not dead yet!"

Sadly, this will be my last Mosh Posh kit. My 6 month term has ended and even though Kristen graciously extended my offer for another 6 months, I had to step down. Summer is here and I want to be able to focus my time on my freelance work as well as my kiddos. Mosh Posh was such a fun company to be a part of and I wish Kristen and the rest of the amazing team continued success.


Some exciting news...

Die-namics Sunshine
I was approached a few months back by Kim van der Sanden to create custom die shapes for her company, My Favorite Things. This week was the release of my first die shapes called Die-namics. These dies are wafer thin metal dies that can be used in a Big Shot, Cuttlebug, Epic or Spellbinders Wizard. PDF Instructions are here. Kim is an absolute dream to work with. She and I will be collaborating more in the future! I have new shapes and coordinating stamps that will be released in July. Be sure to stop by her site and check out all of the wonderful stamps and other products she carries. Her design team creates some amazing cards and projects.
Die-namics Fresh Cut Grass

Some really cute cards made by Kim using the new dies!


Pages to Share

I'm not sure how I pulled it off, but I actually found some time to scrap for myself before leaving on vacation. I made all of these in an hour or less. Just having fun and getting some work done - no stress!
The background is some of the new Basic Grey Basics. I love it!!!
