Trendy Little Girl - Scraplift of Michelle Godin at Scrapbook-Graphics

This is my layout for Studio Start #52, scraplift Michelle Godin at Scrapbook-Graphics. I used the Marilla Collection (which I raved about about a month ago).
Anyway, this photo was taken back in July 08th...I can't recall where we were going, but Kaylie looked so cute with her new shirt, head band and super cool glasses.
As anyone who knows me knows, I am not a very girly person...but I do enjoy buying pretty dresses and outfits for her. You name it, blouses, skorts, sandals, socks, dresses, purses or anything else girly, she has it. I didn't have any of these things when I was growing up, so I do it for her.

Chall. 4 for the Amazing Digi Scrap Race: Goals

This is my layout for the Goals challenge (week 2, chall. 2) at Plain Digital Scrapping. Sylvie's kit LITTLE SUMMER BREEZE, with its luscious colors was perfect for my page. I have had the kit for several weeks now just waiting for the right opportunity to come along and it is here, at last!

Boy oh boy do I love that alpha! The distressed look and folded bits are just wonderful! The flowers are funky and beautiful, but I absolutely went bonkers for the cardboard stitched flowers and the coral/red bg. ppr. I am starting to sound like my friend, Kim, who tends to like one specific item from a kit and uses it in each layout that she makes for a while. I do like it when she obsesses as she can be very creative.

Anyway, I am very happy to be done with my challenges. Now I can breathe at ease again. 1488

X-File Case#2007-1: It Came From Outer Space

O.K. I admit it, I am a huge fan of the x-files...especially Agent Fox Mulder, kwim? :)
Anyway, about a month ago or so, Becky had told us that she had this photo but didn't know what to do with it. I loved it right away and asked her to send it to me so I could make a page for her. Well, I sat and sat and sat on it until it came to me today what to do with it. The slime started off as my inspiration...that neon green is fab! Then I could picture a tiny green alien and little by little my page came together. I just love those space doodles by Kate Hadfield at the LilyPad. I can't believe how well the papers from Kathy Moore's Just a Boy kit matched the doodles! Becky loved the page; I am so happy that she did. It was fun to scrap someone else's photo for a change.

Blue Bay Cottage By Krista

Krista has some serious talent. Check out this sampler she is giving away. I have seen kits by designers sold at the store that do not compare to this one in beauty and detail. I see big things for her in the not so distant future. Follow the link to download it, and don't forget to say thank you!

Ramona's ADSR Challenge 1

Ramona did a wonderful job on her museum layout. I love the bg. ppr., vintage frames, the great photos...and those extractions are just fabulous.
If you want to see this layout at the DST gallery, click on the gallery link at the upper right hand corner of the blog.

This summer has been a bit trying. The boys seem to be bickering more than normal and pushing the boundaries just to see what I will do. So when we took a trip to our local museum, and they were able to dig for dinosaur bones without the normal fussing and fighting,I was happy!

Reverie Add-on by Weeds and Wildflowers

I am a big fan of Weeds and Wildflowers. They kits are fabulous! I like each and every kit they have in the store. Too bad I chickened out and didn't apply for a ct position when they had their call. :( However, I am extremely happy at SBG and wouldn't want to do anything to jeopardize, let me rephrase, interfere with my SBG gig.

They have an add-on to the Reverie kit, which can be downloaded here:
