Happy June


I'm still a bit MIA on the digi scrapping front. Life is super busy right now. However I want to share with you MScraps June Collaboration that you can get free with a $7.00 purchase.  The preview is for Part 1 which will be available until June 15th and afterward Part 2 will be available, also for free with any $7.00 purchase. The Collaboration is You Are Loved and as you can see it is beautiful!

I used both parts for my page and let me tell ya there are so many elements and papers in this kit is was hard to choose which ones I wanted to use. I tried to pack in as many as I could! I also like this kit because it includes both bright and pastel colors, so you can create pages that have a soft or bolder feel to them. I used a little bit of both.

The June challenges are also up at both Digichick and MScraps so head over and check them out, create some pages and rack up your points for free products.

Until next time........hope the sun is shining upon all of you. :-)

The Happy Place!

I have not officially announced it yet, but I am now a CT member for WendyP Designs. Her collections are beautiful and I am so flattered she chose me to be a part of her CT. You can find her designs in several places. At MScraps, Scrap Stacks, and Digital Scrapbooking Studio.

I have always loved her kits and being a CT member is awesome! Plus, I'm back on the same team with a fellow CT member from Weeds and Wildflowers. It's great to develop friendships with people all over the world.

Without further ado, Wendy's new release this week is The Happy Place. This collection is one of my favorites of hers so far. I love color! and this collection wows you with tons of color and unique elements! You can find it here at Mscraps - you have the choice to purchase the entire bundle collection or pick and choose which items you want. Check it out!

Yes......I'm Here

I've been a bit MIA on the scrapping front as of late. Life kinda throws you for a loop at times. Seems my life is full of those roller coaster loops. It's all good though.....getting thrown when you least expect it allows you to move forward with a greater understanding, a more grounded footing of how to proceed in a complicated or difficult situation. Life is never black and white, we don't have an instruction booklet to go by. All we can do is rely on our faith. We have to believe and follow what is in our hearts, to know everything has a reason and purpose.

so..........now that I have once again worn my heart on my sleeve on to the few things I have to show you.

MScraps has had a ton of new releases and the 2nd part of the store Collaboration Birdsong is now available for free when you purchase $7.00 or more. This part is only available until May 31st........so you only a short time to grab it.

http://www.mscraps.com/shop/Birdsong-Part-2/

One of the recent new releases is Buttercup Mornings by Designs by HeatherT (Heather Taylor). I saw this kit and loved the color combination of blues, yellows and greens! I love how bright and cheerful it is. The brushes she includes in this kit are stunning!

Keep an eye out on this space, as you'll love to know what other things I have been working on.
Until next time........:-)

Rush

Lonetta has a beautiful new release at the Digichick. The new kit Rush has deep rich colors and beautiful elements. I love to use these types of kits to create pages highlighting the vintage photos for the family album I'm making. In my view the rich colors really make the black and white photos pop.

Take a look.........this photo is of my mother (on the right) and her sister Velma (on the left). Then keep scrolling down for more news :-)




Don't forget to check out the challenges at the Digichick and also MScraps to rack up your points for free products!

Life is Good!

I haven't posted personal thoughts for a few weeks.......but I can say without a doubt life is getting great. The long cold lonely winter of my soul have tuned into a very bright and colorful spring. I have one person to thank for the sunshine in my heart and he knows who he is.

With a great new job starting at any time (that has been a very long time coming), relocating to a fresh place and spending time with a special someone I can finally say I'm happy. We never know what the future holds, nor do we know how something in the past molds our today.........but I know without a doubt when one door closes another opens. My faith in God is stead fast. He has shown me that there is light after darkness; the light will be brighter and provide more happiness than what the past has been, and any pain you have experienced, will be wiped away and replaced with a great joy.

Life can be complicated .........but one must always remember that patience though the complications makes one stronger; and in time everything will work out as it's meant to be. It just takes positive thinking, understanding, respect, honesty, and resilience. I look forward to the bright days ahead, the new beginnings, new discoveries, and living life as it's meant to be lived.

Love life.....always!














Happy Monday!

I hope all my fellow Mother's had a wonderful Mother's Day yesterday. I had a cookout with family and friends and it was a fun day. I ate and drank much more than I should have so it's back on the diet today!
