Here is a page I made with Flergs kit called Shenanigans, for sale at Zig Zag Scrap. (She is guesting there this month).
So the title got me thinking of shenanigans that my friend and her family are always into and this came to mind.

Some more pretties

I love scrapping pics of kids...even when they are not my own. Seems these days all I hear are groans from my teen when I have the camera in hand. If she walks in while I am scrapping HER photo, she grouses...ah well, it was fun while it lasted.
First two are from the newest release from Flergs called Daydreamer

Last night's Speed Scrap at the Orchard helped me create this cutie. I used Refreshed by Amy Stoffel.

Way overdue

I can't believe how neglected my poor blog has been. I have some layouts around here somewhere. I did these just for me...no contests, no pressure. I got some pretty cool new kits recently and after all the great deals and freebies I got around iNSD last week I will have plenty more to use for weeks to come.

Meanwhile, I am way overdue posting some of the more recent pages I made for some of my creative teams.  The first four are for mgl Scraps and I am in the middle of a really big file, making a rainbow page with Monica's stuff. Those Dreams in Color kits are coming in handy right about now! I'll post that when I get it done.


Casual Attraction



I am beside myself with excitement because I am a Guest CT'r for the inimitable Flergs! I jumped in just in time to use this AMAZING beach kit called Welcome to Paradise

...and this gorgeous kit Estranged . I hear there is another new release coming out soon, and I can't wait!

Hopefully I won't wait this long again to post. I am off to play with more of my new stuff. Happy Scrapping!

More challenges...

The past few weeks have been a challenge to say the least, foremost being that my home computer needs some TLC and between the mouse freezing and lack of free time, I have barely spent time on it. Regarding the ADSR challenges #3 and #4, and especially 4, I found them to be fun, but then again, I am a big fan of Altered Art. A lot of scrappers tend to find ATC's to be out of their comfort zone. For my first half of #4, I found this precious photo of my daughter taken just a split second before bursting into laughter. When she pouted, I would always say "Don't you DARE laugh...I mean it" and of course she would. Actually, I still say it to her.

The other portion required us to scrap our team partner. I really had fun with this one.

The Amazing Digital Scrapbooking Race is on!

I completed my first two assignments for this years race. Two things you should know...I don't know WHAT I was thinking when I took it on again this year, what with opening a new business and working 10 hr days and weekends...BUT I am glad I did it anyway. I need to have time to breakaway from it if even for a hour at a time. The other thing is I am so happy to have Bec, YES THAT BEC, as my partner. Her Layouts are knocking off socks all over the world. Miss Rebecca also made us the cutest team blinkee.

Here is a look at what I (literally) threw together for week #1
I should have added "gorgeous" and Meryl Streep lookalike...tee hee. I made the background out of a bunch of textures and cut it out like a window. Certainly not professional grade, but it worked.
This one allowed me to use some of my older photos of Toot that are pretty low resolution. It's amazing at how much she has grown since these were taken.

Layouts with Clover Designs

My friend Jen has been daydreaming for some time about designing and she finally got her big break..She is guesting at Scrap Orchard and has some very useful and cute stuff in her store. I made a couple pages with them:

In the layout above I used the paper from Ziggle Designs freebies from the new kit Count S.W.A.K.ula, found on the Ziggle blog.

Also in the layout above I used Magic Medley by Irene Alexeeva.

Beside photos masks and word art, Jen has a football themed kit there. She is beside herself with excitement that her team is playing the Superbowl. (Saints) which is what inspired this kit.

Another designer favorite...

We are SO lucky over at Scrap Orchard...We have been getting some really talented designers joining the Orchard. Fortune smiled on us when Julie Bullock decided to sign on as permanent designer and I have found myself drawn to her palettes and style more and more often.
Here is a page that basically made itself at tonight's speed scrap:
