Sophisticated Grunge

Wow, it's been a little crazy here in my home the past couple of days. I was in bed all day yesterday with the flu. No fun! Once I ventured out of bed this morning, my back ached so bad from laying around all day yesterday. Wasn't sure which was worse, the back ache, or my stomach ache. Gotta love it!

Anyway, Amber has released a most beautiful kit this week over at her blog Stolen Moments. It's titled Sophisticated Grunge. You can download it all throughout the week. I know you'll love it. Below is a look at her kit, click on it to be taken to her blog.

Here are a couple of layouts I did using this
kit. One of them is for a book that my brother is putting together for my parents for Christmas. The other one I created specifically for Amber.
This is the one for my parents.
I did use part of a kit from
Digi-Designs by Nicole on this
layout as well.

Enjoy and Merry Christmas to all!

Painter's Quilt

Amber over at Stolen Moments has just released a fun kit called Painter's Quilt. My parents both quilt and this reminds me of them. I had every intention of taking pictures of the many patchwork quilts they have made for my cute little family, but it just didn't happen this week. So, I went through my pictures and found this darling picture of my dad (Papa) with Annalise curled up on his lap from when we visited in 2007. Definitely made me miss my parents! Anyway, click on the paper preview below to be taken to Amber's blog and download her kit all throughout the week. I hope you enjoy it as much as I have! Don't forget to let her know what you think of this fun kit. Also, check out the layout I made using this kit.

Anxiously Awaiting Classic and Beach Bum

Wow, I don't know about the rest of you, but my life seems a little crazy lately. It could be because I'm way behind on Christmas shopping, or maybe it's because we are down to one car (minor fender bender by hubby a couple of weeks ago and now our car is declared totaled. Yup, it was an old car 11 years old to be exact), or maybe it's because on Saturday I'm in charge of a Christmas party for my church where there will be close to 200 + people. Yup, it's crazy here in my home! Anyway.........on to exciting things!

If it weren't for the great opportunities I have doing CT work for Nicole and Amber, I don't think I'd get any scrapping done. As it is, the fabulous scrapbook I wanted to create for my daughters birthmom isn't going to make it for "publication" in time for Christmas. I think it will have to be a Happy New Year type gift. Of course, that is unless there are some of you out there who would like to scrap some pictures of an adorable 2 year old who you probably don't know. Any takers?? Anyway.........on to exciting things.......sorry for the side track comments here.

Nicole has just released a great kit Beach
Bum. It was just what I needed! I love the colors and all that goes along with this great kit. Click on the paper preview to be taken to her blog to download the papers and the rest of the kit throughout the week. Leave her a comment and let her know how much you love it! Also, take a peak at the two pages I created using this kit. What do you think?

Next, Amber created another great kit Anxiously Awaiting Classic. It's just like a kit she previously released, Anxiously Awaiting Contemporary. The difference is, the Classic is in pastels. Now, normally I'm not a pastel type of person. However, this kit made me think twice about pastels. I really liked it! So, click on her kit preview to go and download her kit all throughout the week. Don't forget to leave her a quick note of thanks! I'm sure she would appreciate it! Below the kit preview is also two layouts I created using this kit. Both layouts are using pictures from the placement of my daughter through adoption. What a great day! Scrapping these pictures brought back some wonderful feelings and emotions. It was a day we dreamed of and longed for. It was amazing!

Hope everyone has a wonderful week and happy scrapping!
