Really, it is!  I am now officially if you put your brain to it you can probably figure out my age but I am not telling. tee hee.

I wanted to do something really fun to celebrate so I made you a little birthday kit. It is a little bit sweet, a little bit whimsical, and a whole lot girly...cuz of course, I am a "girl" least at heart.  I hope you enjoy it as it is totally not what I usually grunge this time, no distressed papers, no extracted roses...just fresh and fun pieces to scrap some birthday or other celebratory photos.  Enjoy.  And if you really like it, I would love for you to leave me a comment.  Hugs, Connie

Growing Up Too Fast

I just have to share another layout I made with the In the Hollow Collection from Keystone Scraps (which is available in the Scrap-n-Pieces store HERE).  I am in love with this collection.  The papers are gorgeous, the elements are lovely and that alphabet is just perfect with them.  I hope you enjoy seeing my latest ITH layout as much as I did creating it.

Oop - Defective Snowflake

OOPS...If you downloaded the FB addon of my Winter Chirp kit on the first day (Jan 15th) you will have a defective snowflake. You can download the actual snowflake directly from the following link.

I accidentally loaded a working portion of the snowflake in the BT kit instead of this lacy snowflake. Thanks for your understanding, I have been down with this crud that is going around and not too with it this week. :-)

Hocus Pocus + a Freebie

Scrap Happens To Me has a darling kit called "Hocus Pocus"  that is just so cute!  Even though this is a Halloween kit it is cute enough to use for lots of other things as well.  And there are even some addons to give you more options.  You can find them all in her Scraps-n-Pieces store HERE.

I have some layouts to share with you.  Both are of my little granddaughter.  One is of her with her new kitten, and the other is of Halloween.

And I have a freebie for you too.  You can download it from Mediafire HERE.

Take Me To The Movies

Karen Diamond Designs has a new collection out this week and it is so fun! Called Take Me To Th Movies it is chuck full of great elements to scrap about your favorite movie, play or theatrical event.  There is a main kit in this collection and many addons, including a journal pack, an alphabet pack, border clusters, layer styles, wordart, stacked papers, cardstocks and glitters.  And the best thing is that all of these are on sale for a whopping 40% off right now in Karen's Scraps-n-Pieces store HERE. Here is a little peek at the kit and the wordart pack.


I have a couple layouts to share with you. First is a layout of my granddaughter's school play, Teddy Bear Christmas.

This second celebrates one of my favorite movies. I love this movie and my kids tease me because they think it is kind of sappy and predictable.  But I love a good love story, and a little adventure just adds to it.

And lastly, I have a frame cluster Freebie for you. You can download it from 4shared HERE or from Mediafire HERE.

A Fish Design has a new collections of coordinated kits called Celebrate!  There are actually two kits and two addons. There is a kit for Boys and one for Girls.  But if you get one of the kits and the other addon  you will have lots of supplies for any birthday or celebration.  All of these kits are on sale right now for 50% off at her Scraps n Pieces store.  Grab them HERE

I made a birthday layout using these kits, featuring my little grandson.  I love the bright blues and all the lovely colors.  For this layout I used the template for the Scraps n Pieces January Template Challenge  by Karen Diamond Designs.

And then for something different I made a poster for my teen granddaughter for her room.  I love all the lovely flowers perfect for a young woman.

And finally, a personal use cluster freebie for you.  You can download it from 4shared HERE. Enjoy.

Good Fortune

Do you celebrate Chinese New Year?  We aren't Chinese but we enjoy having Chinese food and celebrating the day by giving little gifts to the grandchildren.  Usually they have a unit on China at school so the red envelopes containing a little treat are fun to share for that too.

Keystone Scraps has a darling kit called "Good Fortune" that is just perfect for scrapping all those CNY memories and celebrations. And is also good for scrapping a trip to Chinatown, or to the zoo to see the pandas. You can grab it in her Scraps-n-Pieces store HERE.

I created a couple layouts to share with you. Both of my little granddaughter wearing a tradtional Chines outfit that I found in a Chinese grocery/general store while visiting San Diego. I love the large photo in this first layout because that little smirk is so her!

We were a little somber here - she was being so very careful not to damage her cousin Quincy's precious parasol that Aunt Debbie brought her from the Orient.

I hope you enjoyed my layouts and if you too have some CNY or other Asian themed photos to scrap be sure to grab this lovely kit.

Sneak Peek

Keystone Scraps will be releasing a darling kit on Jan 11th that you will not want to miss.

And if you go leave a comment on the Keystone Scraps blog by Thursday night, you might just win it.
