Wooo! Lot of links on here today.

I have a few layouts that I have recently done that I'd like to share with you .  This first LO called 'Turn Around' I did for the template challenge over at TTS.  The kit used to create this LO was designed to help my daughter and her family after they lost everything due to a house fire.

the journaling reads...
Where are you goin' my little one, little one?
Where are you goin' my baby my own?
Turn around and you're two
Turn around and you're four
Turn around and you're a young girl
Going out of the door
Where are you going' my little one, little one?
Little dirndles and petticoats, where have you gone?
Turn around and you're tiny
Turn around and you're grown
Turn around and you're a young wife
With babes of your own.

Turn Around

If you would like the 'Small Miracles kit you can find it here

I would like to take a minute here and say thank you from the bottom of my heart to the ones that have donated to this.

These next two layouts were made using Nikki's newest kits Heartfelt and Heartfelt Add-On. Heartfelt was based on the 'Just Baggin' It'  challenge prize kit over at DSO. It is full of beautiful colors and so fun to scrap with!!

This first layout is a then and now of my hubby and I, when we were kids and now. I used a great template called Love Is by Kim Broedelet. It comes with the word art as well, how cool is that?

This layout I used an old photo of my hubby's Mother when she was young, I love this photo of her.  I did this layout for the scraplift challenge over at DSO, where we were to scraplift a layout called Easter Surprise by Gavins Mom                                                                      

If you would like to have Heartfelt you can find it here, the Heartfelt Add-On you can find here. Kim's template Love Is can be found here , all in the DSO store. You can also find a great quick page, made by Mojo on Nikki's blog using this kit. And if you scroll down to the previous post on Nikki's blog you will find a couple of quick pages by me using her Lazy Day kit.

This next layout I did for the template challenge over at DSO.  I used parts from the Boy Time kit by the girls at DSO. It is a download a day on the DSO blog, and will also be in the store.  I used some fun photos of my sons, who are now grown, as they were clowning around. The word art is by me and available below for download.

Quote for the day...

Today's quote is one that I thought was cute and has to do with the rising cost of gas prices.

A pedestrian is someone who thought there were a couple of gallons left in the tank.

Have a great day, Kim

A Daddy Is

Today's post will be a short one, I just wanted to share this wordart with you. With Father's Day coming up here in the US on June 15, I thought this would be good for those LO's of Dad with the kiddies. I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed making it.
The preview isn't very good but it will give you an idea of what you are getting.
I've included both versions,
one with the words photos and money along with the images of them
the second uses only the images of photos and money in place of the words
I'd love to see what you do with this.
