Tattered & Torn

I've been scrapping the last couple of weeks, and have really enjoyed it.  I find it to be a great "stress reliever".  And if you've been following my blog, you know that I've been under a lot of stress lately, so this was very good therapy for me. I'd like to share a few of the pages that I've made recently with you here. So grab yourself something to drink and get comfortable because I've got lots to share with you today.

You Owe It To Yourself

Jazzy has four great new wordart packs in her store, since I've posted last. One of them is the Boys Of Summer Wordart that I've used in the above layout. Another is the Graduation Day Wordart that I've used in this next layout.  He Is Risen and Just Baseball are both great as well. You owe it to yourself's to check them all out!


I've played around with extractions in this layout and I really like the way it has turned out. The kit used here is Le marchand de sable by Akiloune, which I received from her as a RAK.  Thanks again for the lovely kit Akiloune, I loved it! 


I also was chosen for a one kit/one template call by Di Hickman.  I love her templates, having used them in the past.  This was my first time using one of her kits, let me tell you I loved it just as much! Such bright and cherry colors, that are in Chick-a-dee and the Diagram Bundle #15 is fantastic!  This first layout I entered into the lyric challenge over at DSO.  The lyrics used are from 'Spring Fever' by Elvis Presley.  The beauty in pink is one of my granddaughters enjoying the beautiful spring day and dodging the camera in Nana's (me) hand. LOL

Spring Fever

We had a family get together/cookout at the park on Easter weekend, when I made these pictures.  This next one has four of my grandchildren, when I went to tell them the food was ready, no one wanted to come. Lots more fun on the slides!!  I used Chick-a-dee and another template from Diagram Bundle #15 in this LO as well.  I used Jazzy's All About Kids Wordart in this next one. I cut it apart and rotated parts of it, which shows that you can make changes to WA to fit what you want it to. The face whiteout is a past freebie offered by me, which you can still find here if you would like it.  I entered this one in the font challenge over at DSO, using the font Painty Paint for the journaling.  

Kid's Zone


I have more to share with you but I think I'll save it for another day, and just give you this freebie now, as I'm getting tired and I guess you are too.  This freebie contains both of these 12x12 inch templates that I've made for you from some of my past layouts. They are available in both PSP & PSD formats.

Dreams of Yesterday

I've gotten lucky and was chosen to CT for Jazzy of Words To Delite. She sells at DSO, you can find her store here. I love wordart, as you can really dress up your layouts with some great words. Jazzy has some really awesome wordart packages, it was hard to decide what I wanted to use first.  But since my oldest son was recently married the first wordart package I choose to use is I Thee Wed

I thee wed preview

Here is my layout, as you can see I recolored the wordart that I chose to use to match the layout.  Full credits can be found below the layout.

A dear friend of mine in the digiscrapping community recently received some nasty emails from a few who thought that she shouldn't write about her life on her HER blog. I can't believe that anyone would do such a thing as that. After all it is HER blog, to do with as she wants. When she offers freebies there it is a GIFT for which a person should be thankful for. June and all the other designers out there, keep doing what you do for it is YOUR blog.  I personally would like to publicly thank all the designers for all of the wonderful gifts that they offer on their blogs. And I love reading the bits of your life that you share with us. If you want to see the post that I'm referring to, you can find it here


Now I'm getting off my soapbox and offering you a gift. It is a kit that I created for KimB's color challenge over at DSO.  You will be able to find even more goodies using the same color swatch in the thread at DSO.
