Adorable Water Kit

Late Night Scraps and Creations by Rachel teamed up again to create this adorable new kit called Squid Ink. They have opened up a new store called Plucky Pear and this and all their other designs can be found HERE.

Here is what I did with this kit. It was especially cute since Josh and Liz haven’t been back from their Galveston trip for very long.

New Kit, Freebie and Coupon

So, I have figured out that designing can be completely addicting and I was so inspired by so many things this coming up season. Since I live in Texas, I miss the colors of fall, the change in the weather and attending football games in something warmer than tank tops and shorts. This kit reminds me of everything I miss from up north.

PS Happy Harvest

Crisp cool nights and colors exploding from the trees can only mean that a Happy Harvest is just around the corner. But you don't need to wait around, a Happy Harvest has already arrived! Filled with rich, warm colors and textures that you can almost feel, along with just enough variety in the elements, makes this kit one that you can use over and over all season long. From the little felt mushroom, to the apples picked fresh from the tree, you can almost smell the scent of fall. Happy Harvest contains 18 perfectly textured papers and 77 elements. Happy Harvest Add On Paper Pack contains 12 plain pieces of textured card stock and the alpha contains 26 Upper Case Letters, 26 Lower Case Letters, 10 numbers and 32 symbols

In celebration of completing my second kit, I am giving away this template as well as a coupon for $2 off of the purchase of the bundle kit. Since the coupon thing didn’t work so well with the leaving the comments thing, I am doing it this way. I hope you can find some use for it.

New Kit and Freebie

I know that my last freebie was quite a while ago and I did say that I was going to give away a freebie every week but that was before I jumped into the designer’s ring and finished my first kit. Yes, I said I designed my first kit!!! And yes, I am excited.

I started this kit using commercial use Vectors that I got from Polka Dot Pixels over at Polka Dot Plum and it inspired me to run with it and create what I think is a really cute kit.

Not all items are shown in this kit but you can find the kit at Pretty Scrappy HERE.

Here are some of the layouts using this kit so far. I would love for you to email me or upload to your gallery a layout with this kit and let me see what you do with it.







Also available in my store is my Atomic Alpha which coordinates with the Polka Dot Chicks Atomic Kit. (I sure know a lot of polka dot people don’t I?)

Speed Scrap

  Won’t you come join me for a speed scrap at 12:00 (Noon) EST over at Polka Dot Plum.


Doesn’t this look like a cool prize just for coming out to play?

For those few of you who actually have my little corner of the world saved, on your Google reader list or just visit occasionally, I am sorry for not updating lately, things have been in yet another state of flux for me. 

I had the opportunity to explore the world of digi scrapbook store ownership, with all the ins and outs and I am hooked.  Now, it fell through at the last minute (yeah that hurt, A LOT) but it made me realize that I am headed in that direction sometime soon!  I am looking for either an established store that is up for grabs or to start something new within the next 6 months.  During that time I am going to concentrate on research, design, scrapping and my family.  I am looking forward to some fun time in there as well.

For those of you who don’t know, I have been accepted as a designer at Pretty Scrappy and should have my first kit up within hours of this post.  I am super excited and can’t wait to see what happens.

In other news, Josh, my eldest who some of you may remember graduated in June, isn’t doing so well on the leaving the nest phase of his life.  About 2 weeks ago he took the ASVAB for joining the Army and didn’t pass the test.  It is sure harder than when I joined the Navy 100 years ago :)  He gets to take it again around the 30th of September but unless he actually picks up the book and studies he isn’t going to pass then either.  Since he will have to wait 6 months before being allowed to take the test again I hope he has other plans because his playing Xbox all day and emptying my kitchen days are quite over thank you very much.

I am almost finished with my first class in my new college and surprisingly I am getting an A.  Doesn’t hurt that this class is basic “what do you want to do when you grow up” but I can always add a 5.0 into my GPA to bring it up from the last school I was at.  It is amazing how much different things are when you are actually interested in the degree program.

Ben, the youngest of the crew, is in marching band again this season and we are scheduled for a football game every weekend from now until mid-November.  God forbid that anyone gets in the way of Texas High School football.  I have to say though, there is a certain trumpet player in the band that is just the cutest ever.  Wanna see?IMG_2059


so, can you tell which one is mine??  I only managed to catch a close up picture of him on his way back from the bathroom.  Oh well, maybe next game.


Ben is the one standing in the front on the 45 yard line.  I love my SLR, I shot this in RAW and when I have a few minutes I am going to zoom in and isolate him.  I can almost see up his nose LOL.

Have an awesome day and I will be back shortly.

Polka Dot Plum Layouts

I am sure that most everyone knows by now that Polka Dot Plum is open and there are a HUGE group of talented people over there making the store a success.  You can find the store, gallery, forum and chat at and I encourage you to go see for yourself.  I got to, in my own way, add to the excitement over there and put my layouts done from these awesome designers over in the gallery.  Here they are for your enjoyment as well.
