Digiscrapping & a template

I've been doing a lot of digiscrapping this past week, great for relaxing.  I've got a few things I'd like to share with you today.  First I want to tell you about a beautiful new kit by LouCeeCreations called Dilys. It is filled with pretty tones of green, blue and purple. I have made a couple of layouts using it and some of Jazzy's (Words To Delite) fantastic wordart. For the full credits see under each layout.

I also want to tell you about a new wordart package by Jazzy, called Just Music. These are slightly decorated and can be re-colored as you can see from my layout here. They could be used for just about any type of layout.

I grabbed a couple of pictures from my dear friend June of her lovely granddaughter Lilly, and used her freebie kit Mary Mary on this layout.  The kit was recently offered on her blog, in three separate downloads and is still available I think.

Grungy Dots

The surgery is over and my son is coming home today!  He will have to go back and have the staples removed from his head in 10 days and will still need some therapy but at least the worst of this nightmare is behind us.  Praise GOD for the miracles that I have saw in the past few months!  He still does perform them even in this day and time!! 

I'd like to say that I'm behind in my emails, so if I haven't answered you yet I will get to it, maybe now I might have just have a little more time since hopefully I won't be spending so much time sitting in the hospital playing the wait game.

I have a kit to give you today. I made this for KimB's color challenge over at DSO. I created this LO of my grandson using it. I love this smile!

It's The Smile

I used Jazzy's wordart pack called Little Boys in this layout, you can find it here.



And here is the kit Grungy Dots, I hope that someone can find a use for it.  This kit, as all of my kits are, is full size and created at 300 DPI.

Grungy Dots contains....
10 12x12 inch papers
2 clustered frames (only one shown in the preview)
1 cardboard frame
1 multiple photo frame
2 laced ribbons
2 ruffled ribbons
2 flowers
3 fasteners

Lucky Me!!

Two post in one day, I've just got so much to share today!  I'm so excited to have been one of the chosen to be on the CT team of LouCeeCreations.  She has just recently started selling her designs again and let me tell you they are fantastic, such a joy to work play with. You can find her store here over at DSO.  Here is a preview of her latest kit in the store, called Bollywood Dreams.   I just love all the gorgeous colors and fun elements in this kit!!

Bollywood Dreams

Here is a layout that I made using it. This is my hubby and I on one of our camping trips. Actually this was two pictures, that I made into one, by adding the two of us into one picture. We didn't have any made together on this particular trip, so I fixed the problem.  LOL

Kim_Precious Memories

I also used the wordart from Funky Love Lines by Words To Delite in this layout. Lots of fantastic wordart to choose from in this pack!!  You can find this wordart package here at DSO.

Funky Love Lines

Lou has generously allowed me to give you this quickpage that I made from my layout.  I would also like to thank Mrs. Wresh for the great CU template, even though her TOU states no credit is necessary, I always like to give credit where credit is due.

Be good to each other, you never know what battles your neighbor is facing.

Scrapping Is Good Medicine

I've been on a scrapping frenzy lately, seems it is good medicine for me, calms my mind. I'd like to share a few of the layouts that I've made with you today.  All of these layouts today have been created using kits by LouCeeCreations who has started selling her designs at DSO once again. So if you are a fan of hers as I am, or you just want to check out her designs you can find her store here at DSO. I've made a quickpage from one of these layouts for you which Lou has generously allowed me to share here for you, thank you Lou

This first layout is of my children and I way back when - 1985 . We have ALL sure changed a lot since then!  They are all grown and married now, most with children of their own. 


News To Me by LouCeeCreations
Heritage wordart by Words To Delite

I love this quote used in this next layout, that I made for a couple of challenges. The quote challenge over at DSO and the font challenge over at K-Joi.  I love challenges, I usually end up with a layout that I might not have made without the idea from the challenge. So if ever in a slump on scrapping, check out some of the challenges for some fantastic ideas!  This is my DH with his first granddaughter, I think this is such a heart-warming picture. This is the layout that I've made a quickpage to share with you all from , you will find it at the end of this post.


Garden Blues by LouCeeCreations
Fonts used are Nana Hand, Boring Boring, and 1942 report

This next layout was also made for a challenge, this time the font challenge over at DSO. This is one of my youngest granddaughter's, her daddy is my youngest son the baby in the first layout above. I think she looks just like him!  I loved this picture, I started to take it of her eating ice cream by her herself and having it all over her, at another granddaughter's birthday party. Just as I snapped the camera, she was offering me a bite of her ice cream. LOL

Please continue to keep my son in your prayers, he is still doing well. He is scheduled for his next surgery on May 15th. They are going to put in a steel plate where they had to remove part of his skull that was shattered and to allow for the swelling of the brain. For those that may not have read about it already on my blog, he suffered a TBI on January 31 2009. It is a true miracle that he still here with us. The Dr's didn't think he would even make the trip to the larger hospital with the Trauma unit. Prayers are answered, and miracles do still happen today!

Thanks for stopping by my blog today, wishing you a scrap-happy day.
