Memories of the Orient {Freebie}

Deanna made another gorgeous kit called Memories of the Orient - it is rich and bold and has a lot of fun elements - I got my hands on this kit a few weeks ago and was taken back by the richness of it.

This kit is going directly into her store at One Single Seed - and it's totally worth every penny! But, you'll want to stop by her blog and leave her some love, becuase you never know what she might have up her sleeve for you.

Here is my LO with the kit

and a freebie Quick Page for you too (in three sizes 12x12, and both directions 8.5x11)!!!

Combine the coupon with the sale and you will be able to get anything and everything in my store for half price, but only for a limited time - you won't want to miss this. So hurry over and pick up Set 5 - and watch this blog for updates on the sale!)

Sweet Love QP {Freebie}

Today I have a Quick Page for you made with FlowerScraps Sweet Love. I am excited to offer it to you in the rectangular form, as I recently learned there are not very many Quick Pages out there this size! I will try and convert more of my pages into this size in the future.

Boy Meets Girl {Freebies}

I told you that I loved the Boy Meets girl kit, right? Well, I have a more stuff for you today!

I have converted my LOs into Brag Book Pages, and combined with some BB pages Steph did, we have a mini album for you. I want to let you know that I got my pages printed 4x6 the other day and it looked amazing! If you haven't ever printed any of your LOs a BB is a great place to start cuz they are cheap! Anyways...the preview shows all of the pages, but you'll have to go to Steph's blog to get hers.

I suggest you check out Steph and Britt's blogs, in case you missed anything they might have shared!

A few things...

So, this morning Mike rushes into the bedroom - "Come here," he said, "you're not going to beiieve it." I hopped up and followed him into the bathroom to find water dripping from the ceiling - puddling around our washer and dryer. A look up at the ceiling explained it - something was leaking and the ceiling was falling apart because of it. The reason he was so sure I wouldn't believe him was because last September the same thing had happened to the ceiling in my closet. Eventually maintenance showed up and discovered it was coming from the third floor apartment (we live on the ground) and stopped the leak...but not before cutting out the ceiling in our bathroom and leaving a huge mess. We have to live with it for a week or so, until it dries out before they replace it. Oh, the joy!

But, on to good news -

First - there is a Speed Scrap this Saturday at Stuff to Scrap

and here's your PP

Next, one of my TT members, Eva, is having a CT call. She was recently invited to sell at Stuff to Scrap when the store opens this summer.

Finally - we are having a HUGE party at Stuff to Scrap for National Scrapbook Day next weekend...,more details to follow.

Stop by the Stuff to Scrap forum to let us know if you'll be at the Speed Scrap and to check out all of our monthly challenges- watch for updates this weekend about all the fun next week leading up to the big event on Saturday the 2nd!

Boy Meets Girl {Freebie QPs}

I have both of my LOs for you as 12x12 Quick Pages today

Be sure to stop by ScrappyCocoa and Britt's blogs for more great stuff!

First, Kathy has another fun kit she's done for the designer training she's participating in. It's called Every Day Matter, 2 Home & Family check it out (it's linked to her blog)

Ellay has a new kit out this week called Bears Eat Beets - (the title has something to do with the show The Office) anyways, I looked at this kit, took a deep breath and decided to try extracting a picture for a LO. I'm pretty happy with how it turned out too!

Check out the full kit (it's linked)

Steph has been a busy bee and created this lovely kit called Chocolate Mint and it will leave your sweet tooth satisfied!

Here are a couple of LO's I threw together with this kit :) It's fantastic!

This kit is a collab between ScrappyCocoa and Gettin' Scrappy With Britt (both designers for Stuff to Scrap)It started out with Britt doing the Boy-ish stuff and Steph doing the Girl-ish stuff but the entire kit works beautifully for either!

I did two LOs - here they are:

Um, gross.

Ok, so I was just in the bathroom at work - and one of the things I hate about public restrooms are the large gaps between the stall door and the stall wall - those gaps that allow you to see other people around in the restroom...anyways, so I sat there doing my thing (TMI, I don't care - not the point!) and was looking out of this annoying gap and saw something that grossed me out.

Something I'm sure I've done - and I bet you've done too.

Two women in a row stepped out of their stalls, walked over to the sink/mirrior and started fixing their hair and adjusting their glasses. Then washed their hands.

Um. Gross.

Isn't the point of washing our hands to prevent those icky potty germs from getting into us? Rubbing your face or running your fingers through your hair seems like a great way to make those dirty germies a part of you.

I stepped out of the stall and washed my hands, before fixing my hair.

You will see two new slideshows, the top one shows off LO's I've done (I don't get to post them all to my blog - so take a look!) and the bottom one shows off the work of my amazing template team!

Simply click on the slideshow to be taken to the gallery to leave comments, check credits or just admire the work!
