SS Valentine's LO

Adriana hosted a great SS at Ginger Scraps tonight - and I was able to play along - for the first time in a long time. Now that I'm working on bouncing back after my setback...not sure if I feel like talking about it that much - LOL - but it felt good to be creative again! :)

Anyways - here's my LO - the image is linked to my GS gallery where you will find credits! :) Thanks for looking!

And of course I just couldnt leave it with just 1 picture - so I played more and came up with this:

This will probly be the one that I order - just because I have a really hard time just scrapping one photo at a time - Trev's book would be HUGE if I did it that way - its already big! LOL

Ellie Lash ROCKS!

So I recently discovered this designer - Ellie Lash - only to find out she is retiring as a designer (so sad....) and was doing a sale - so I actually purchased (I know for like the 2nd time EVER!) some of her things before they were gone! She then included an ADORABLE fall kit as an added bonus to purchasing in her retirement sale! It was hard NOT to buy anything!!

Anyways - here is a LO that I created using parts of her Pumpkin Patch and Delicious Kits (the tractor was from Mommy Me Time Scrapper_AutumnFest (recolored from red) and I used sketch template 6 from LorieM (flipped and moved a bit).

I just thought this LO turned out soooo cute! I loved the corn stalks (even tho the pics were taken in May - I know the corn is NO WHERE near that height (if coming up at all) but oh well!) The kits also came with some adorable pumpkins and a wheelbarrow and wagon that I'm just dying to use! So don't be surprised if you see a lot more LO's using these kits!! (once I get back into the "fall season" of scrapping pictures!! LOL)

Anyways - enjoy - and click on the LO to go comment on it - PLEASE!!!

Whoo Hoo! Ginger Scraps is BACK!

I was just checking and Ginger Scraps is officially back (well ok, I admit, it was back a few days ago - but I missed it with all the wedding stuff going on!!)

Go check it out and leave lots of comments on my layouts! Hee hee!!


I'll try to come back later and post some of my LO's that I've done lately!

It's Potty Time - Statements by Jodi's new kit

Hey Everyone!! I know it's been a few weeks since I've posted anything - I've been busy making some BB pages for grandparents day - and didn't want the grandparents to see them before they got them for a gift :D

Anyways - some exciting news!! Statements by Jodi has come out with a gorgeous new kit called "Potty Time!" It was a blast to work with - and not to mention adorable! Here is the kit in its entirety (linked to the Ginger Scraps store!)

This kit is perfect for scrapping your child's potty training adventure. It's also great for those big kid underwear photos!

This kit includes 18 papers, 70 elements, 73 stickers, A FULL alpha, and a printable 8x11 sticker chart that you can print out and use during your child's potty training! 4 different candy rewards, 2 rolls of toilet paper, a 5x7 sticker chart for your LO's, 2 potty chairs, 1 staple, 4 boys and 4 girls (blond, brunette, red head and black hair), 4 frames, 2 journal blocks, 2 step stools, 1 toilet, 1 sink, 5 flowers, 10 buttons, 6 pair of girl underwear and 5 pair of boy underwear, and 5 book plates.

It's Potty Time!

And like I said - it was a blast to scrap with - I will definitely be using this kit more than once!! Here is the LO I created! Enjoy - this is a photo of Bug after she was trained - and insisted on doing it HERSELF! I thought I'd give her the benefit of the doubt - but I guess I should have watched her a bit more closely! But I had to laugh when I walked around the corner and saw her - of course I had to run and grab the camera before we cleaned up the mess!! Thankfully it was clean TP!

I can do it myself!

Statements by Jodi "Elementary"

I had a chance to scrap with Statment by Jodi's kit "Elementary" last night after our "Scotland Steak Send-off" meal! (My MIL, her Mom & Sisters were going to Scotland - so we had steaks on the grill (organic from Futility farms - thanks to me winning that photo-contest!), corn on the cob (fresh from my Aunt's garden), potatos & warm apple crisp (from my Dad's apple trees)! It was DELICIOUS if I do say so myself! ;)

Anyways - its an awesome kit - and I had a blast scrapping with it - I hope to do a few more pages here in the next couple days once Trevor officially starts school!!

Here's my Layout - the image is linked to my gallery - where you can go and leave me some LOVE :D Enjoy!!

Nothing really new! :D

Just wanted to say HI to everyone - altho I don't think anyone actually reads this - LOL! My goal this week is to get back to scrapping - I've spent the last few just gathering up some good supplies - still trying to overcome "the crash"! I'll still never be over the fact that I lost 3 months worth of photos (or about 60 LOs...) but I'm slowly building up my kit collection again - so I can just move on. I'm still trying to decide if I want to redo all those pages I lost or just print low res versions of them (thanks to my uploading most of them to Facebook I at least can see the work I did at one point....)

Ok - that's all - Hopefully I'll be back this week with some new LOs :D

GingerScraps Survivor....

Well the tribe has spoken - and I'm officially off the island :(

It was a fun challenge while it lasted - I had a feeling this would be the week I would go home - there were a lot of us who did. I just didnt have a big alliance like some of the others. Oh well - now back to my "real" scrapping :D

GingerScraps Survivor Week 3: Letter Challenge

WOW! What a challenge! We were supposed to write a letter (that took up at least 1/4 of our page) to a loved one. I struggle with journaling as it is - let alone a letter that takes up 1/4 of the page!! So I struggled till the last possible minute (well close - LOL) and just gave up and posted my LO. I still wanted to change the journaling a bunch - but just left it as it was. I hope it gets me through till next week!!

Here's the LO - please leave me some love (and VOTE!) (image is linked to the forum - where you will also find all the credits!)

GingerScraps Survivor Week 2 Challenge

Alright - even if you completed the Immunity Challenge for this week - we were still required to complete the regular challenge - otherwise we'd be out.

This week's challenge was to go look in the gallery (see the Survivor Gallery here) and scraplift a LO from another contestant. I chose to scraplift this LO from Redhead (LO is linked to her gallery - leave her some LOVE for this GORGEOUS LO!)


Not only did I just love her LO overall - it's soo cute - how could you not!?! But my eye was caught with her circle sun filled with the small square photos - and it reminded me of a softball! I was then reminded of all these adorable photos of my oldest child - and figure'd it'd be perfect for the LO - so here it is! (again image is linked to gallery, where the credits can be found - please leave LOVE while you're there!)


GingerScraps Survivor Immunity Challenge

Ok for Week 2 we were supposed to create a camp with the 10 things that we couldnt survive without - I kind of mis-read the instructions (and for some reason didn't get the "create a camp" part of the challenge) but thankfully Ginger was sweet enough to count it anyways!

So here's my take on the Challenge: (again image is linked to gallery - please go leave me some LOVE!)

I'm going to do a little back-tracking here - just to catch up on the whole "Survivor" thing going on at Gingerscraps (have I mentioned how much I'm loving that place? LOL - talk about addicting - I'm worried it's beginning to take away from my scrapping tho!!)

Ok - here is/was my first entry:

The LO is linked to the gallery - where you can find the credits (and leave me a little LOVE if you want!)
