First Day of Kindergarten

Remember the kit from Cottage Arts that I showed you this morning (STUDY BUDDY)? Here is my page! BoyIt came together rather nicely, if I say so myself.
Kaylie was excited to start Kindergarten and to meet her new teachers. She was in the “Froggy” class so her room was decorated with all kinds of frogs and fishes. It was a bright, cheerful and fun room. They even had a pet frog!

A Smile Says Happy - Fruity Iced Tea by Kathy Moore

I just love, love, love these bright colors! I am pleased with how this page turned out. While I personally hate the repetition of identical photos in MY pages, I did use the same picture except that I zoomed in for each frame to focus on her pretty smile. I think this was a more effective way to show her off. Don't you think? :)

A New Designer is joining Scrapbook-Graphics! is a secret, but not for long....
There is a designer joining Scrapbook-Graphics....a brother and sister team!
They are awesome...wait until you see their templates and kits, you will be surprised and wonder why you haven't seen more of them before...

They are set to debut on September 1st....but remember, you didn't hear it from me. LOL

Have You Ever...?

Have you ever had one of those days where nothing interests you and life just feels so blah....
Well, I am having one of those days for a while...

I have lots of ideas swirling in my head, but have a hard time concentrating.

My kids will be going off to school in a couple of weeks, so I decided to just stop for a while, and concentrate on them. I am also doing major cleaning of my least that is getting done and I am feeling a bit better.

Anyway, if you don't see too much of me around, now you know the reason.

Natural Beauty

I did this page for the I CAN SCRAPLIFT THAT! challenge at Scrapbook- Graphics, which was a sketch challenge this week. I also did it for the Trish Jones' blog play day this past Saturday.
Happy Birthday, Trish! I hope you had a wonderful day.
