Glitz & Glam and a freebie!

Hello everyone and Happy Black Friday!  Hope you all had a blessed Thanksgiving.  Right now my family and I are tucked away in a beautiful cabin in the mountains enjoying a break from our regular world.  We do this every year and never get tired of it.

So, let's get down to business.  LOL!  Jackie aka Jacabean Designs has a brand new kit out at Scrapable.  Glitz and Glam is a beautiful kit.  I just love the vibrant blues, browns and oranges in this one.  Here is the layout that I created with it:

If you enjoy this kit, like I know you will, make sure you head on over to Scrapable and see what else she has in her shop.  You are sure to find other kits that you will just love.

And I've made a freebie for you all with this kit.  Here are a couple beautiful bookmarks that you can print at home and use them to enjoy with your favorite book.

Everything Nice Collab Blog Train!

The Jacabean Designs CT, along with Jackie herself, put together this awesome collab kit.  This was so much fun because most of us are new to this designing stuff.  It's perfect for scrapping those newborn pictures.  Along each stop you will pick up a part to this awesome kit.  There are also some quick pages and some clusters.  Here is a full preview of this kit:

Here's my portion of the kit:

And here is a list of all the stops:

Phew..what a weekend

What a full weekend this was for digiscrappers.  DSD (well weekend) was a weekend full of sales, challenges and tons of fun.  I literally spent all day Saturday at the computer.  My hubby was a great sport about it though.  LOL! 

I thought I would share just a few layouts I did over the weekend.  All of these layouts were done for challenges over at Scrapable.

Song-Lyric Challenge (I Hope You Dance):

Theme Challenge (Pumpkins):

And a pumpkin recipe to go with that:

And a Midnight Speed Scrap:

Thanks for looking!

Scrapable Blog-It Challenge - Winter

Well, I live in an area of California where we really only see two seasons - Summer and Winter.  I really would rather have Fall or Spring but those, sadly, only last a couple of weeks it seems.  I do like the Winter.  I prefer our Winter weather over Summer...who likes 115 degree days?  Not me.  I love curling up by the fireplace and reading a good book or watching a movie with the hubby and kiddos.  I love the holidays that fall in the Winter months.  I look forward to our week long getaway during Thanksgiving...tucked away in a cabin in the mountains.  I look forward to spending time with family and friends for Christmas.  The Winter brings many good things and a lot of wonderful blessings.

It's Been A While...and a freebie!

So, I'm sure you've all realized by now that I kinda suck at this whole blogging thang.  LMAO! 

Lots of things going on.  I'm still an Aloha Girl at Scrapable.  I'm and Enchanted Pixie at Enchanted Studio Scraps.  I've been a part of the Fairytale Academy over at Brownie Scraps....I'll have a kit to share with you all real soon.  :)  I still have my CT's that I'm on too.  All these things keep me super busy...but I love it.  :)

I created a little mini-kit to give to you all as part of the Color Challenge over at Enchanted.  This was our color palette:

This is what I've come up with:

Please let me know what you think.  Any and all comments are greatly appreciated.  Pick up your copy of the kit here.
