Big Announcement

Hello dear friends! Believe it or not, my computer is STILL at HP! But, I am finding ways to make fairly simple layouts. As long as I save after every element I add, at least if the computer dies, all is not lost! I am super excited to tell you some news! Last time I posted, I mentioned that my hope is to someday be on the creative team of some of my favorite designers... Well, I AM!!! Yay!! I am now a CT for Digilicious Designs!! I love Christine's designs, and am so thankful that she is willing to give a new girl like me a chance!!! So, be prepared to see lots of goodies from Digilicious Designs! First up are two layouts from her FABULOUS new kit, "Two by Two". This is a great kit that includes 20 papers, 1 alpha, and 48 lovely elements. And you want to hear something awesome? For this week only, you can get all that for $2.00!!! Yes, you heard me right, $2.00!!

Here are the layouts I did with it:

She also has a great kit called "Twilight Zone", with which I made this layout with a picture given to me from when my Grandma and Grandpa got married. It is such a special photo! And expect to see many more layouts from this kit!

Okay, that's it for today... I still have a lot to do during the baby's nap!! Take care!

My First Extraction

I am so excited - I did my first extraction tonight! My computer is still with HP - I hope I get it back soon, but I'm not counting on it. I saw the week #2 challenge at Gotta Pixel, and when I saw that the challenge was to extract, I knew I had to at least TRY!! I had to be really careful not to use too many elements, and it shut down on me once, but I persevered. So, here is my first attempt. I used Marta van Eck's lovely kit Le Fabulist.

Now, a question for anyone who might be reading this... my sincere hope is to become a member of some of my favorite designers CTs someday. But, as I have been reading CT calls, I've noticed most say to link to at least 2 other galleries other than the store where they sell their products. I'm pretty sure you could link them to DigiShop Talk, which I just found a few days ago (love it!!!), but where else do they have galleries where you can upload and link to ANY shop or designer? I assume these places would also be the best places to start my own galleries as well, correct? I'd really appreciate any help on this you can give me!! Thanks!

Here's to hoping Best Buy calls tomorrow and says my computer is fixed (fat chance!) Take care!!!

Another Blog to Win

Sorry, but I might bore you with these... : ) I recently saw Scraps of Ellay's new kit Thanksgiving Weekend, and fell in love with it! I love the fall colors, and the FOOTBALL!! We're big football fans in our house! And Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays, so I would love to scrap with this kit!!I really like all of Scraps of Ellay's work - check it out here at Stuff to Scrap!

Well, I can't scrap, but...

...I can show you some things I want!! : ) Turns out the motherboard went bad on our computer, so it will be a minimum of two weeks before we can get it back. Bummer!!! But, I can still think about scrapping!! And Stuff to Scrap is celebrating Digital Scrapbooking Day all month long! I can't participate in the challenges, with no way to make layouts, but there are other things I can do! Yay! I am blogging, in hopes of winning this great kit from Digi-designs by Nicole:

I love the beautiful colors, and the papers are lovely! I'd love to scrap about my beautiful girls with the Beautiful You kit!!!
