Digiscrap Forum Blog Train

Good day everyone!

Yeah I remembered to post this before someone contacted me and told it wasn't up.... Yippee!!!  Ok so this month our "theme" was spring and we were given some beautiful spring colors.  I had a very hard time getting inspired by this but when I did, it just kept going and I think it came out really nicely.  I hope you like it and enjoy the other parts of the train as well.  Don't forget... we all love to get some comments!!!

You should have come from Phlox Dragon Designs
Next stop should be EhKho
And should you get lost along the way, or start off here, please go to Digiscrap for the full list

Some of you might notice the new changes to my packaging... hmmmmm.  I am getting ready to open up a new shop in a brand new store.  We will be opening our doors on the 4th so be on the look out for games, prizes and FREEBIES!!  Can't give you anymore information but it is a beautiful store with lots of great designers.

Final Round of Design Quest at Scrapping FairyTales

Good Day Everyone!
I hope you are having a great weekend!  Been a little crazy around here with our tempatures but we are mustering through it.  I have finally finished the final challenge at the Design Quest.... this one was a very hard challenge for me as I could not come up with an inspiration to get me going until yesterday while making caramel apple cupcakes for my son's class party.  For this challenge, we had to come up with an inspiration, turn that into an inspiration board to show our process of designing the kit, then create a brush.  On top of this, we had to use our brush on 1 paper, create 1 plain paper and then 3 others that convey our theme.... then we had to create 12 elements, besides our brush, 1 tag, 1 frame, 1 fastener, 1 ribbon/string, and at least 1 item using our brush... then 7 other unique elements.  I ended up using my brush quite a bit and it was pretty easy creating my own brush.  Had I known how easy, I probaly would have been making some.... so be on the look out for them in the future.
Here is my inspiration board which all started with the "apple" then the palette from and finally some google searching (finding the cute idea of owls). 

Here is my final product from all my brainstorming.... I hope you like it and swing by to pick it up.  I would love some comments if you pick it up or even dropping me a note to a link showing what you created with any of my entries.  Thanks so much for all the support and owl love you all!!! Just couldn't resist... hehehe.

Don't forget that my last entry will be coming down tomorrow and that this one will only be up for 1 week.

TGIF - Sales & Freebie

Good Friday all!

Today starts the new weekly sale over at Daisies & Dimples Shop.  Each week there will be new and exciting items in the sale folder.... definately don't want to miss it.  This week though, you can make out even more in my shop there as well as my shop at Faith Sisters as I still have my month long sale going on.

Now we are into week 3 over at Scrapping Fairytales .... this weeks challenge was very fun but difficult; however, I did get a chance to get it done before Sat this week.  Ok so the challenge went like this.... Choose a photo of someone or something that inspires you.  Obtain your color swatch and theme from the photo then create only 5 papers (2 plain, 3 pattern) and 12 elements (only 6 could use CU).  I decided on a photo that I just took last week of my boys while at the zoo... the photo shows exactly their personalities and I love it.  As most of you know, they are all on the Austic Spectrum and have ADHD so I took that with their individuality as my theme and came up with my mini.  I hope you like it and leave some love if you choose to pick it up.

Remember that last weeks entry will only be available until Sunday Night so go pick it up here.
You can also pick up all the other Week 3 entries here

Real Men Wear Pink!

Hi everyone!

I hope everyone is having a great day! I continue to support and let everyone know about October being Breast Cancer Awareness Month. This time I want to support all those men who have been diagnosed, suvivor and lost the battle with Breast Cancer. Not everyone knows that millions of men are diagnosed every year with this terrible disease. I have created a mini for my week 2 challenge at Scrapping Fairytales in support called "Real Men Wear Pink". There are 5 papers and 13 elements fit for any page but specifically for those men in your life that you love and hope for.

Reminder:  You can only pick up my Week 1 entry until Sunday October 16th for free.
Please keep all those who are still fighting or lost the battle with Breast Cancer in your life!

Breast Cancer Awareness Month and Freebie

Good day everyone!
I have entered yet another contest, yes I know crazy, but it keeps me learning and my brain working.  This time it is over at Scrapping Fairytales and round 1 we were given a choice of swatches and a button.  We had to use the button to create at least 1 item in our kit as well as a minimum of 5 papers and 8 elements.  Seeing that I have a family of ladies who have passed from Breast Cancer or other related cancers, I decided to honor my mother, who is still fighting, and create a mini celebrating survival.  The kit is called "Making Strides", which my mother came up with, and has 5 papers and 8 elements.  It will only be available until next Sunday so get while you can.

Prices are "Fall"ing

Good day everyone!

Here in TN, the fall temperatures have come upon us (at least for a few days) and inspired me to offer a wonderful sale for the month of October.  I know I did not have any sales last month, due to all the freebies I have been offering from the contests, but decided it was time for you all to grab up some great deals.  Throughout the month, my sale prices are going to change.  Each week the percentage off will be anywhere from 35% to 65% off, you can tempt fate and just show up or you can check in every week to see what the deals are.  I will have this going on in both of my shops (which do not always carry the same designs) so you will have even more opportunity to rake up some great deals.

I created the ad above with my part of "The Blog Train" October Train.... make sure to swing down to the next entry to pick it up and the other 100 other designs in the train.

Have a blessed day!
