So I'm going to try and be better about posting the new kits, this last week we had family visiting, and I was feeling really pressured to keep up with everything, so I decided to take a week off, and I didn't even turn my computer on!! (At least since Wednesday or so anyways!). It was nice to unplug for a little bit, but I do love scrapping, so I'm glad to nab the new kits and work on layouts to show you for next week! We had a few little milestones with the kids this week and I would love to get them scrapped! Have a great week, and hopefully I'll be able to post more often. I really want to finish the quilt I started for our camper before we take it out camping for May long weekend, and I'm reading a bit more again, and with time for the kids outside, and trying to get walks in so I can lose some weight...I guess I really need to learn to schedule my time better, and decide what my priorities are and just get stuff done!! I think I like to relax just a little too much lol. So ttfn!!

Freebie and Sale!!

Hey guys, I have a whole swack of kits to tell you about, like two weeks worth, but am pressed for time right at the moment, which seems to be the theme of my life lately, and somethings gotta give!! I don't know if I can keep up to this all summer! I just wanted to make sure I let you know about this freebie over on Cheri's blog, (Dream Big Designs), it's her birthday bash this week, so make sure you head over there and grab this beautiful kit! It's only a freebie for this week, and then it goes to the store so grab it while you can!
I did a layout with this one as well, love this kit, it's so fantastic! Great freebie hey!! I also used a photo tab template by Jen Caputo.
Also, she's having a huge 60% off sale in honor of her birthday as well, so make sure you check out her stores here and here and nab any kits you have been eyeing up!!!

So happy birthday Cheri!! I hope to be back tomorrow to show you a bunch of new kits!! See you then!

Fairyhood Magic Purple

So apparently I lied, well not exactly lied, but I DO have a layout done for Ptitesouris, I think this kit was out yesterday, and here is my layout:
The kit is called Fairyhood Magic Purple and it is just beautiful! Lots of flowery elements.
That's it for me for new kits this week I think, I hope to get back to my normal scrapping schedule starting tomorrow. I have two more kits for Ptitesouris to do, and then my guest CT spot is done. I'm kind of sad as I think she is a brilliant designer, but I'm sort of happy too, as she was putting out a kit a week, and I already have a hard time keeping up with what I have! When I signed up I was still staying at home, so the last two months have been pretty crazy with me going back to work and doing all my scrapping too. I really do love it so much that I don't want to give any of it up! Plus, I think her CT is so awesomely talented that anything I do paled in comparison! They are true scrap artists I think, the things they can do with her kits just amazes me.
Also, I saw Avatar last night, and here's the scoop: we get there and find out that it is no longer showing in the 3D theatre (part of the reason I wanted to see it in the theatre was because of the whole 3D thing) so I was a little disappointed there. We went anyways, and it was a good movie. I really had to go to the bathroom by the end of it (it was three hours after all, and we bought pop of course!) and I remember thinking at the one part with the bulldozer crashing through the trees, and Jake trying to smash at the cameras with a rock, that it really seemed to me to be like Fern Gully on steroids. Remember Fern Gully, the cartoon? Avatar really is like a real human/Na'vi take on the cartoon version. I don't know how original the idea behind it was, but the special effects were fabulous, and I can only imagine how cool it would have been in 3D. I feel like I really missed out there. The next one my hubs wants to go see is Clash of the Titans. I wouldn't mind going for the 3D thing, as the only 3D movie I've seen is UP, which was cool, but I'd love to see how it looks with a real movie. Plus, Sam Worthington? Nice. Anyways, that's it for today, back to work tomorrow. I'm lucky as Chase has speech therapy in the morning and my hubby said he'd take him for me, so I'm pretty happy about that. Saves me losing time off work, and he's on salary anyways :)
Have a great day!!

CT duties hehee

Okay, here are the other kits I've been slacking on telling you about, the first is this awesome Springy-Easterish type of kit, called Spring's Renewal, and the cutest matching alpha ever!

My layouts (template by WMsquared):

The second kit is a beautiful kit by Dream Big Designs, called A Child's Dream:
My layouts, (template by scrapvoyages):And check me out - no template!! Wooo!

That's it for now, I'm behind on doing up my kit for Ptitesouris, and now my stint on her CT is over (thank goodness, I can't keep up!!). Her kits are beautiful, so as soon as I get a layout done with her latest kit, I'll show you that one too! We're going to Avatar tonight and I'm so excited to see it, so there will be no scrapping tonight!

New Stuffs and some actual WORDS

Well, hope everyone had a great weekend, sucks that the work week begins again for me in about 8 hours! We went out to the in laws for Easter dinner yesterday, and today was a catch up on sleep day, had a nice three hour nap this afternoon. I have been feeling so crappy for the last three weeks and it's really kicking the crap out of me. My ear has been ringing for the last week and a half, and cracking and popping for the last two days, I've been stuffy on and off and have been hacking and coughing throughout. I went to the doctor the other day but he says it's just a recurring virus (or different viruses) and gave me some antibiotics to take if I'm not better by next week. I'm so tired of being sick! Three weeks is a little excessive, but it does feel like it's starting to let up, so hopefully by the end of the week I'll be back to normal. I did up an Easter card using a new kit by Lliella, this kit was so frigging cute! I actually used the QP freebie on her blog and cropped it to 5X7, and added my title and our names and the date, but I love it and I bought the kit too!The kids are doing great, the dayhome they have been going to is awesome, it's the same one Chase was in before I had Rayna, and they both are doing well. Chase is doing lots of crafts and Rayna is doing her own thing I guess. She has good naps there in the afternoons, and comes home pooped anyways, so I think that's a good thing that she's played out! Work has been challenging, as I learned the system they were working on for three weeks and then they brought a new operating system in, and it really wasn't ready to go. For invoicing purposes, it has been a nightmare. None of the customer coding was right, the prices were all coming up wrong, and it has been a real learning curve for everyone in the entire company trying to just fix the errors so we could do our jobs properly. We were about two weeks behind all month and the other girl in invoicing and I have been working weekends to try and get caught up, last week I put in 51 hours! Plus coming home to the kids and scrapping. SO needless to say, my house is a wreck, and I'm pretty behind on everything in my home life! My next task will be to get our tax stuff in and done. I'm really looking forward to a scrapbooking weekend retreat that my sister has put together, a few of us girls are going to rent a hotel room for the weekend, and do some scrapbooking, maybe go to a movie or two, and just have some child-less fun! My husband told me I need to have the taxes done or I can't go, so you better believe that tax stuff will be the big project for this week! Other than that I'm pretty boring, I still need to update my book blog, which has been sadly ignored, and I have a baby blanket I need to get put together ASAP, as my sister in law had a baby girl two weeks ago, and there will be a shower and I won't be remotely close to being finished! Anyways, that's the latest chit chat, here are the new kits for the week from Scrap That Idea, I have some from Kathy Winters and Dream Big that I'll probably post tomorrow, I'm runnning out of time so tomorrow's post will be for them!! But in the meantime, check out the April collab kit called Step into Spring from STI:
And my layout (**template by the digichick blog):Vicki also has a new kit out, called Forever. I can't even begin to tell you how much I love this kit, the papers are beautiful, and I'm so in love with my layout, it's one of my all time favorites. I also really love the alpha in this one:
my layout (**template by Anna, photo texture by Shadowhouse Creations)Stacey has a new kit out this week called S is for Spring, and she has a contest going on over on her blog, I think you have to guess what the "T" is for, for the next alphabet kit, so make sure and head over there for that! You could win the next kit if you guess right! She's also having a contest on her facebook fan page, all you have to do is become a fan, and you could win one of her kits! Check that out too :)
My layout:
And Mel has a new kit out this week too, I love the colors in this one, the black with all the bright ones is so pretty! It really catches my eye, and I love the textures on the black paper too. She has the Splatz full kit, and mini kit as well:
My layout (which uses bits from the mini as well) (**template by Kaiser):
You can view each page individually here and here for a closer look :)
Well that's all til tomorrow! Have a great week, and as always, happy scrapping!

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