This Week and a Freebie!!

We are sooo going camping this weekend!! I absolutely cannot wait! While I love scrapping and all my computer time, it will be so nice to be unplugged for the weekend! Time to take the kids fishing, sit by the campfire (hopefully the bans are off!) and using our camper again, since we didn't use it last year. This will be Rayna's first time camping for real, as last year she wasn't walking and we didn't really go camping with her. It should be so much fun! But I can't let you just hang, here are the new kits from this week, as well as a couple catch up items for some of my other CT's:

First off, Cheri opened a new store!! Her designs are now available at Scrapable! And because I'm a sucky CT member these days, her sale is almost over, however if you hurry you can still catch it! Check out her new store HERE.
She also has a new collab kit out with Rebecca B, what a fun girly kit! It's called Girls Just Wanna have Fun (also one of my favorite songs!!):The little girls are so cute, and I so badly wanted to make a hybrid and print out some paper dolls for the kids to play with, the dresses and the shoes are so cute! My layout (template by JewelScraps):Cheri also released this beautiful kit called Blush:Here is my layout (no template, yay me! and word art by the fantabular Kathy Winters - to get the effect I duplicated the background paper layer, used the WA like a clipping mask and added a shadow).I also turned my layout into a QP (I'm really late in posting this so my apologies to Cheri!):

Next up I need to show you the word art pack that is in the above layout and I mentioned in my last post, Kathy has this set up in her store, and I absolutely love it. I'm finding so many new ways to use word art, and have been playing with textures and special effects, here is her Memories Made word art pack:I also used this word art pack on the layout I did for Vicki's new kit, Boy's Club:My layout (template by jayedid designs) and word art by Kathy Winters of course! I recolored the word art and added some effects (don't ask me now which ones as I'll never remember!! I just play til I like the look of it and then save it!)I also did a second one using the alpha from the kit:Mel released this really fun, summery kit called Jive:My layout (template by Janet Phillips):Makes me wish summer was here full on already! Sara also has a kit out this week and I really love it, all if it! It's called Fresh Flowers:My layout (template by Crystal Livesay):

Stacey has a new one out as well (she's truly a scrapping MACHINE!! I seriously can't keep up!) This new one is called Y is for You Complete Me:And my layout (template by Three Paper Peonies):I always see these really simple layouts and love them, it's so hard not for me to put more elements on! SO there you have it. I hope now I'm all up to date! I probably won't be on here again before next week so have a great week and an even better weekend, may the sun shine wherever you are!!

Great layouts! Thanks for sharing the QP!

The talent in your team is so inspiring, if not a little daunting.
I really love your team, and I think your layouts are stunning!
I am very picky with QP's and I saw your page and was smitten, so I did snag the QP. I don't use them online, just as a screensaver on my pc.

Thank you for your wonderful colours and beauty that you bring into all of our lives.

remember it is quality, not quantity that makes excellent designs.
