Hello everyone, how are you? I'm feeling much better, although I did wake up today with a smashing headache and am still a little tired, but I'm always tired! Such is the life of a mom I think...anyhoo, I almost missed this kit completely! Here is Mel's new kit for this week, Honey Bear, and it is so cute!It comes with a matching wordart, which I just love:
And here is my layout, Rayna with her grandpa, he has such a soft spot for her, and vice versa, she will always run to him for hugs. I love it. I used a freebie template by Paislee Press.

I'm pretty boring these days, I don't have too much on the go although some days it seems like I still don't have enough time to do everything I want to do. I have a new coworker at work and I'm still getting used to that, and my sister and I joined water aerobics and start tomorrow night, so that should be fun. I hope! I'm so tired right now I don't think I can keep my eyes open any longer, so I think I'll close off, have a good week, ttyl :)

I don't feel all that well. I am getting a huge head cold, and since I'm sure no one wants to hear about my crappy day at work, how tired I am and how crabby my kids were tonight, I'll tell you about Vicki's newest kit called Zodiac! I love all the elements in this kit and really wanted to do a layout with it. I googled my sign so I could add in a lot of the characteristics of my sign. Here is the kit preview, although to see all the goodies that come in this one you should really check it out in the store!!I used a template by Crystal Livesay and Fizzy Pop. I played with my photo on a website but it was long enough ago that I can't remember which brain is mush!
Alright, that is all I have for today. I need to go to bed so I can rest and give my body a boost for tomorrow. It really should be Friday tomorrow instead of only Wednesday. I don't feel like working for another three days! Any hoo, have a good week, ttyl :)

My 2 year old?

Wow, Rayna is turning 2 this week! I can't believe she is two years old already! She's turning into such a pretty little girl, with LOTS of attitude! She has recently discovered Dora the Explorer on TV as well, everywhere I go she squeals and points if she sees anything Dora related, so I decided that can be her birthday theme. Here is the birthday invite I did for her:
Credit: Papers from Flutterby by Creashens, most elements from Girly Birthday Party by Kathy Winters Designs, glitter from Pixieland by Lliella, frame by Paislee Press, template by Angie Kovacs, Dora, Boots and Swiper from the internet. I also had time to do a layout this week with a non CT kit (although Iwould love to be on her CT!!), I used Kristin Aagard's new kit Peas in a Pod, it's a pregnancy kit, but I saw those peas and just had to have it!! Although I tend to buy all her kits regardless lol. I used a freebie template by ChrissyW.Ok, here are my CT kits and layouts for the week, first up is Mel's new kit, it's so sweet it'll make your teeth ache! Aren't those elephants too cute? Check out Just Love Me:
And my layout, template by Kitty Designs, word art by Iowan. Haha, I just realized I used the same photo for both layouts! I really like this new photo of them together! And you saw a sneaky peek of this kit earlier in the week, here is Stacey's Fang or Fur, a Twilight inspired kit:
My first layout, I started off with a template but in the end had deleted everything that was on it and now I can't remember which one I used to get started :(
This is my new obsession, True Blood, it's a vampire series on HBO, and I love it. It has a little too much nudity for my taste, but if you could take that out then this would be my favorite show! The elements in the kit also work really well for True Blood as well as Twilight. I made the blood drips by extracting one of the fangs, adding a color overlay and running an action by atomic cupcake. I love it!!Here is my second layout, Eclipse of course, and no template! Wooo, lookit me go!
That's it for now, the last thing I have for you is a video that made me laugh out loud, have a peek if you like.
Have a good week, I'm off to get some Dora cups, plates and other birthday paraphernalia!

Just a quick post to show off Vicki's new kit for the week, called Autumn for Kim:
The colors are perfect for this time of year, I know the leaves here will start turning very soon!! And here is my layout, template by Dido Designs.Photos of Rayna from last year, she has changed so much. Looking at her I wouldn't have thought so, but she is more a little girl now than before, not so babyish anymore. :(
Anyways, have a good week :)

The new collab kit for September is here!! It's fantastic, check it out HERE. And of course, being the slacker that I am, I didn't do a layout with this one! I DID however do a layout with the freebie kit that you can get...that's right, FREEBIE kit that you can get when you spend $5 at the Scrap That Idea store. It's not available by itself until October 1st, so if you've been eyeing up other kits, go nab them and get this one for FREE!! It's just so much fun to say that. And THIS one I did do a layout with!

We ditched Rayna's soother this month, so I figured that was layout worthy. My daughter no longer has a soother and my son is starting Kindergarten, where does the time go??! Template by Fizzy Pop.
Also, there is a new monthly newsletter that will be posted on the STI blog with all kinds of news and even some goodies, check that out HERE to get all the new info and the freebie!

Beware the few racy photos...thought it was worth it to see all the other ones!
