Free As A Bird

I wanted to create something fun, something whimsical and Free As A Bird was born!  It all started with an idea for a blue paper with lots of little birdies on it and went from there.  Once I got going, I couldnt stop and had so much fun playing with these pieces.  This kit includes four worn papers in blue, green (with leaves), red solid and tan solid.  Its also complete with lots of cute little elements including a birdhouse, a fence, a cloud, some messy stitching, a worn and tattered frame, one sprig of leaves, bracket mat, an umbrella, some gingham ribbon with matching tied knot and a scalloped edge frame.  This kit also includes a glittery blue alpha from A to Z.




Thanks for stopping by! I hope everyone has a great day!!  :)

Scrapping is my therapy!

I love it.  It helps me a lot.  It's such a wonderful outlet and what is better then something new to play with???  Well, it had been a few days since I checked out Donna Downey's blog and I am SUPER glad I did last night.  I LOVE her new Painted Whimsy papers.  Can you say adorable?  I bought them RIGHT AWAY and played with them RIGHT AWAY!  I never thought I would be able to pair up my new boy grunge kit, Ultimate, with such girly papers but I did!  I love the result.  So many credits on this layout and they can all be found with the original upload at NDISB.com.


In the last few weeks I have gained back almost ALL of the weight that I lost.  I am SO upset but am going to jump back on track.  I dont deal with stress well.  :(  We had a healthy supper and a healthy snack.  I talked to my family about my weight gain and how unhappy I am.  We discussed it and NO MORE TAKE OUT!  Eating home is eating healthy.  Things have to improve.  Going to the grocery store tomorrow for a whole whack of good eating.  Watching the summer Olympics is not helping my self-esteem issues either!  lol  Dang those people have nice bodies.  Hope everyone is having a great week.

Paypal will be the death of me!

Ok, not EXACTLY Paypal but Sean.  You see MY Paypal goes through Sean because people at Paypal are DUMB and couldnt fix ONE little issue.   Anyway, point being is that Sean gets all of my receipts when I make online purchases.  I ALWAYS forget to go into his inbox and forward and delete.  He checks his mail and is like, Ummmm honey?  Yes, dear.  What's the Polka Dot Potato?  What?  No idea, whistles innocently.  Ummm honey?  Yes?  What's Artscow?  Ummmm an online dollar store???  Amy?  Yes?  Are you lying?  May be.  Amy!  Yes, I am lying BUT JUST WAIT TILL YOU SEE WHAT I BOUGHT!!  :D

SO tonight I was stalking blogs and of course anyone who reads my blog knows what I have a creative crush on Donna Downey.  She has the CUTEST new digital papers and I HAD TO HAVE THEM!  I think I would honestly die from heart break if I didnt have them.  So I bought them.  :)  I have NO IDEA what I am going to use them for but I HAD TO HAVE THEM!  Dont tell Sean.  Its our little secret!

I have been scrapping AGAIN!  Go me!  Trying to fill another photobook from Artscow.  DONT TELL SEAN!  hehehehehe  Another little secret.  He loves me.  He understands my digital obsessions.  Its ok.  At least, thats what I tell him.  ;)  No, seriously, he LOVES my work.




Happy scrapping!!

The Ultimate Post!

I have a new kit in the store just like I promised!! Here it is, The Ultimate Page kit for all your boy, grunge, manly, teen layouts!  :)  Check it out in the store HERE!



So I received an email from Artscow this morning for a free calendar.  They are giving away them away, you just have to pay $7.99 for the shipping.  I havent had any calendars printed by them before but I had some watches done and they turned out nicely!  So here is the coupon code CDRVOLUMETEST if you wanted to give it a shot!

It's Date Night and I am Alone

Sniff, sniff.  Sean and I went on our first date on a Wednesday night.  Since then (almost five years ago) we have only been apart a handful of Wednesdays.  This, however, is the SECOND Wednesday in a ROW that we are not together.  Last week I went on vacation with my folks and this week he is away at camp with work.  It didnt seem so bad last week because I was on the go non-stop but now I am just home.  Alone.  Scrapping. Oh woe is me.  lol  Anyway, because I am all alone today, Connor is visiting his Dad, I have had LOTS of time to play in Photoshop.  I have a new kit done! YAY!  Its awesome, its so awesome.  Just WAIT until Friday when I release it.  :)  So much fun to play with.  I know, I am a horrible tease but ya love me anyway.  ;)  I have also been a busy little thing trying to get a bunch of layouts done.  I have a coupon for a photo book but not enough layouts to fill it because I just had a photo book done like last week or something.  Again, woe is me.  ;)  Here are my layouts from today.

*please note that all credits can be found with their original uploads at DSAGUILD.com, thank you.






OOPS!  I wasnt suppose to upload that last layout there because it was made with my NEW kit.  Silly me.  :)  OMG!  Did I tell you all what happened while I was away last week?  I got another email saying that one of my layouts has been accepted for publication with Canadian Scrapbooker Magazine!  HOW HAPPY AM I!   Ok, I have about 20 more layouts to do for that photo book, no joking, so I should get back to scrapping.  Thanks for stopping by!
