I've got a new digital kit out this month! I thought it'd be fun to go with a winter theme! You can find it at Can You Digi It?

I just did up a quick page today for the Splitcoaststampers Digital Scrapbooking Challenge. I'm hosting the challenge today and I'm going to make it a simple one: use orange. October always makes me think of the colour orange with Halloween and pumpkins. It's such a warm colour! I hope you get a chance to play the challenge this week!
For my layout I used Echo Park's This & That Charming Collection and Carina Gardner's Essential Collection

Alright, I've got a fun post for you today! My eldest daughter turned 11 last month. We're only just now getting around to her birthday party. We decided on a spa party! I kept things simple with facials and pedicures. The girls had so much fun! I made the tags for the gift bags. I wanted the girls to be able to put their names on their bags because they had moisturizer and toe separators to use from the bag before going home. I made matching labels for the water bottles, also so the girls could put their names on them! The cupcakes are fabulous Pink Lemonade Cupcakes!!! They've become a new family favourite in my house! You can find the recipe here: Pink Lemonade Cupcakes. I just want to show you one more thing:
I got tired of the hats and mitts being left all over the entryway! I had this idea a while ago so I was just waiting for some baskets I liked to go on sale! I picked these up for $3 a piece at Superstore. Then, of course, I didn't want the girls fighting over who's basket was who's. So I made these fabulous tags:
I kept the tags super simple. I used some Co-ordinations cardstock with some Bo Bunny DP. My white craft ink and white stazon ink pads were completely dry. So to improvise, I stamped these snowflakes with craft paint. The letters are cut out with Cuttlebug Babyface dies. The jumbo eyelets are SU and I got the baker's twine from Can You Digi It?

Well, it's true. I've given up my hairbrush, my blowdryer, and even my shampoo (*gasp!*) in an effort to bring out my natural curls. Guess what? It's working! I'm loving the new look (most days) and have been taking lots of iphone-in-the-mirror pictures of myself and even individual curls! I thought it would be fun to make a layout of my progress. My Mother inspired me to go curly when she bought me this book:
The Curly Girl Handbook
It has changed my life! Not only that, I've been able to adjust the care of my eight year old daughter's hair and instead of wearing a ponytail every day, she's wearing those curls loud and proud! I'll have to take a picture tomorrow and share it! (Or make another layout!)
The fabulous thing about this layout? Everything in it is my design!!! That's right! I used mostly my Butterfly Bliss digital kit with the exception of the background paper which is from Shabby Melody.
I'm using this layout to host the Splitcoaststampers Digital Scrapbooking Challenge. The challenge is called At An Angle. So I set the entire layout at an angle (though my watermark now looks off to me - haha). I hope you get a chance to play!

I've made this card for today's Splitcoaststampers Ways To Use It Challenge. The challenge is to use markers in a way other than colouring an image. I absolutely love texture, so I decided to make a textured mosaic. I ran pieces of recycled packaging through various embossing folders. Then I coloured the back of each piece with Copic Markers. It was fun to piece the bits together!
Have a fabulous day!

I don't know if you've noticed, but my posting has been pretty light over the last couple of months. I've been taking a much needed break as well as improving my designing skills. Thanks for your patience! I'm hoping to get back on track now with a regular posting schedule.
Today's post serves a dual purpose. First and foremost, I made this card for my mother. She fell this week and not only broke her wrist but she fractured something in her shoulder too. I knew that she wouldn't want your typical get well card (rain, sad or sick faces, etc.). She'd want something to make her SMILE! So, I'm sending her a smile! This image from Mo's Digital Pencil always reminds me of my sweet 8 year old, Emily. So I coloured her hair to match Emily's. It just also happens to match mine and my mothers, but that's just a happy coincidence. :)
My second purpose is the Splitcoaststampers Ways To Use It Challenge! So the challenge this week is Smile! Making cards just to cheer people up! I hope you have the opportunity to come and play!
If you haven't seen it yet, make sure to check out my freebie digital scrapbooking kit Freebie Kit: You & Me.
I'm also entering this in the Lovely Layers challenge at Mo's Digital Challenge
