How hot are they?

I think they are the hottest kit club out there, and I am a lucky gal to be a subscriber!!! I love these guys. I have never been let down by my kits. My first kit I received back in February and I was giddy from head to toe. I did not receive March's kit for some reason but they quickly sent me one with my April kit. I just received it last week and can not put it away. Love these guys.

So how do I know these guys are the hottest things around? Well if you are a kit subscriber you get first dibs on their add on kits (which I highly recommend) and you can buy anything in the store and you don't have to pay any extra shipping. They just send it all with your kit. Well I went to add a few extra's to my cart ie: albums and tiny attacher refills and they were all sold out. I was so sad. SO to compensate I bought a bunch of other good things : )

Stay tuned because I have some fabulous news to share in a few days!

Candy Shop Designs

So I stumbled across another challenge blog (thank you Melissa) and it is fabulous! A little unconventional (see some of the challenges) but right up my ally!
For this months challenge go here So I stumbled across another challenge blog (thank you Melissa) and it is fabulous! A little unconventional (see some of the challenges) but right up my ally!
For this months challenge click on my page title (I'm having technical difficulties right now : (
So this is my take on it. I had to do this layout in a timely fashion because I had 2 kiddies breathing down my neck. I like how it turned out but if you notice the trim looks a little wavy thanks to my poor photography skills today. It's a rainy day here on the Island and this was the best shot I could get : (

I did all of my writing in white pen so it didn't stand out too much.
There is a fabulous prize up for grabs

So head on over and play along!!!

Some layouts to share

So I did these 2 layouts from some inspiration that I found . I thought I found it over at but now I don't see the layout. It was a double page just like the image below but I'm not seeing it anywhere. If you know what layout I'm talking about please share because I do not like taking credit when it's not mine. Anyways, here is the layout I did:

Now with the second one I used the above layout and made it into a single page layout. I like them both!

Spring is here

This is a layout for a challenge over at

Have you checked out Scrapjacked? I love it. Always fabulous inspiration. This month is a fabulous layout that I wanted to scraplift. However I think it's a bit too much like the original : ( Not what I was going for. The upside is I really like the layout.

Some new layouts

Hey everyone, just thought I'd share some new layouts. I'll be honest the first one I don't love (Lola's Looks) I don't love the colors that I chose. Oh well, I think the second one turned out pretty good.

What's new?

How was everyone's Easter? Ours was crazy! Good Friday we ended up having a wicked coastal storm and had no power from 9 am until 8 pm. Since we are new to Island living we weren't sure what to make of this. Apparently we do indeed get storms like this from time to time. Today we have lots of sunshine and it's warm out too.
Since we had no power I decided to get a little scrapbooking done. The first layout is one I did using the sketch from a sketch class I'm doing through Kelly Purkey-
I don't usually use sketches unless I'm really stuck but this class shows you how to take a sketch and make it your own. I like it.

This second layout I did is really clean and simple. Not a lot to it. It did however take me quite a while. I made the flower with tissue paper and the background is all rolled paper.

Have a great week.
