Gina Marie Huff has a new page kit at Weeds & Wildflowers, My Best Friend:

It’s such a lovely kit! And there’s also a fantastic alpha:

and a girly add-on:

I made 2 matching autumn pages with the kit:

and a card with all three products:

Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween! It’s a windy day here and I’m glad I’m not a kid going around trick-or-treating! 😉

If you don’t know what to use to scrap all the pictures you’ll be taking today, go check out these lovely goodies by Amy Sumrall at the LilyPad! There’s papers:

Adorable doodles:

Cute buttons:

And my personal favorites, crazy baubles and goblins:

Fall Madness: Round Three

Yesterday I finished my page for round 3 of the Fall Madness contest at DigiScrapAddicts: a LO without photos. I was really happy with the idea of my page and the realization, until I saw the entry of my opponent, BeccaBoo – jaw-dropping!! Oh well, I had a blast doing this, and I’m happy just to have reached round 3. 🙂

I love no photo LOs and I loved doing this one! I’m also very proud because I made the dial myself, using a built in effect in Photoshop! 😉

Catching Up!

Here’s a few pages I haven’t posted yet. I’ve been playing with some gorgeous kits!!

Sparkling Candies by Pouyou Designs
Gretchen, Date Stamped and Minnie Alpha by Britt-ish Designs

This page was for the ScrapMatters newsletter that celebrated its first anniversary this month, so I made a page about our 10th anniversary, using the pictures I used in my 10 Years mini album. 🙂

I’m Here

I know I haven’t blogged in like forever, but I’ve been pretty busy with life lately!
My mom isn’t doing too well with her broken foot, but hopefully she’s on the mend. I made her a card last week, and I’ll try to make her another soon!

I was chosen for this week’s Grand Theft LO challenge at ScrapMatters! 😀 Come play along! 😉

I lifted myself and chose this page:

And while I was at it, I created a matching page too:

This kit by Tater is gorgeous, and perfect for all my food pictures! 😀

Fall Madness

I signed up for the Fall Madness contest they’re having at DigiScrapAddicts, lured by the money prize 😀 and I have two pages to show. This contest is pretty tough because each scrapper is paired with another scrapper, and only one makes it to the next round. The voting is done by 13 designers.
Unfortunately, in both rounds I’ve been paired with fellow CT members: in the first round, LoriBear, on ScrapMatters’ CT; in the second round, with Brenda (kaleandkiara) of Amy Sumrall’s CT. Even more unfortunately, Lori wasn’t able to post her LO in time, so I passed to the second round with no competition. Sad, sad! 🙁

Anyway, here’s my page for Round One. We had to scrap a page containing the words “I love”.

Motor Mania, Artistic LicenseHooligans and Glitzy Spills and Thrills by Britt-ish Designs
Fonts: My Own Topher and Revista

This page is totally me: funny, and speaking volumes about my life and my love for DH. 🙂

For the second round, we had to scraplift our opponent; so even though I consider being paired to a friend a misfortune, I was lucky enough to get to lift her amazing work. Brenda’s gallery is amazing, and she is a master of white space – something I often struggle with because my pages always seem empty – and clustering. I chose to lift All Grown Up by kaleandkiara and here’s my page:

Midnight Crow by Chelle’s Creations
Fonts: FG Christine and CK Cursive

This is one of the rare occasions that I couldn’t force myself to put more elements on the page. 🙂 I love this page! And Chelle’s kit – it’s soooooo gorgeous!!
I doubt that I can make it to the next round because Brenda is a fabulous scrapper, but I’ll be keeping my fingers crossed, you never know. 🙂 The results will likely be made public on Sunday, so this is going to be one long week.;)
