Jumbled Mix

I'm back after a busy week of scrapping. And trying to design a little something to share with you. But my mind is a jumbled up mess at this time, can't seem to think on one line, which today's freebie will show. hehehe   But first I want to share some of the layouts that I've made.

This first layout was created for the June 09 BOM challenge at DSO, supposed to scrap a LO of me with pictures taken in 2009, one that I like and one that I don't. My DH took these pictures of me when I was totally exhausted after spending so much time at the hospital with my DS after his TBI. In the close-up I was talking when he took it, I don't like pictures that catch me talking. The other he did manage to coax a smile out of me. But I think they both show how exhausted I really was. The wordart was perfect for the way I was feeling at the time.

This layout is of my youngest DS (the one who suffered the TBI) and his DD, one of my DGD take on her first birthday in October 2008. I did this one for the June 09  wordart challenge over at DDR. Where we were to use this quote. A great chance for me to use one of Jazzy's new Fathers Day for Dad Word Art and create a lovely page for my DS & DDG.  I was notified that this LO was nominated for the June '09 PG Elite Scrapper award. Which I didn't know what it was so I googled it. This is what I found about the award. Quite an honor to even have one of my pages nominated!! (smiling)

Here is another layout made using wordart from Jazzy's Fathers Day for Dad Word Art. This one I did in memory of my Dad, it his face that is blended into the clouds. He passed away in 1976, and I still miss him very much today. The picture in the cluster is me, taken on Father's Day this year.

I did this layout for the color challenge over at DDR.  Where we weren't given any certain colors to use but use ALL colors - show how artistic self or family/friends are.  This is my take on this challenge. I used a script in PSP X2 to make the picture of my DH look like a colored sketch.

I guess you would like to see what I have for you today now. I grabbed the color swatch from the June 09 color challenge over at Inspiration Lane, thought I would create a kit. But as I said above my mind is not staying focused very well lately, going in several different directions. LOL So what you get is a Jumbled Mix paper pack. It contains 20 12x12 inch papers in 4 different downloads. I hope you can find a use for these. I only had time to upload these to 4Shared today.

Sharing layouts plus a template

I've joined another Creative Team, this time for a store - Digidesignresort. I've never tried being a CT for a store so this should be fun. Lots of beautiful kits and wonderful designers to be found here. Thanks for asking me Aquarius!!  For the month of June I've worked with two beautiful kits - Twi-Light Garden by BooLandDesigns and Freedom Kit by ScrapDesafios. Both are fantastic and were a joy to work with. Here are the layouts that I've made with them. 

Keeper of the Garden - is my hubby, just look at that mater (tomato)! Won't be long until we can have a salad fresh from the garden!!

I told you that I'd be back real soon with a kit for you!! But first I have a couple of layouts that I'd like to share with you.  This first one is another done with the beautiful kit Oooh La La by LouCeeCreations.  The wordart used in this layout is from the Sweet Baby wordart package by Words To Delite.  I went back in time with this layout by using some of my baby pictures. I made this one for the template challenge over at DSO. As I've said before I love the challenges because I usually end up with a layout that I like for my books. They are great when you hit a stumbling block with your scrapping, to give you ideas.

Here is the LO that I used Whisper of Summer by Edeline Designs on, which is one of the AWESOME kits that I've recently won over at DST.  Thanks again Edeline!!  I used wordart from the Fishtales wordart bundle by Words To Delite.  And another template on this one as well, the template is also by Edeline Designs.  These pictures were made on one of our camping/fishing trips.

Plus there are already so many beautiful kits to be found in this post with this same color theme! So after you are finished here pop on over and have a look and grab some more goodies.  You will find my download links below the previews, with again your choice of where to download.

Kim

Thanks a million!

I'm pack as promised to show you what I've recently won over at the Happy Place at DST!! I can't believe all the beautiful things that these ladies are giving away over there.  This post is to personally thank each and everyone of these wonderful designers.

First is Angels Tears Collab by Kim Broedelet (Kimb's designs) & Chaos Lounge Creations. This kit is gorgeous!! I've only had the time to scrap one layout with it so far, but you can bet there will be more to come! If you'd like to see my LO with this kit see the previous post. Thanks again Kim and Jenni!!  You can find this kit here at Digi Scrap Obsession and here at Enchanted Studio Scraps.

Next is Whisper of Summer with a free quickpage by Edeline Designs. I've also made one layout using this beautiful kit so far. I'll be sharing it with you soon. Thanks again Edeline!!  You can find this beautiful kit here at Edeline Designs.

Next I received a $5 gift certificate from Dragonfly Designs over at Brownie Scraps.  I got two fantastic kits from her with this certificate, Mother Earth and Grunge Romance.  I haven't had a chance to use these yet, but keep your eyes out for layouts soon.  Thanks again Leslie!!

Grunge Romance

 

Next is an Awesome paper pack, Elegant Mess Paper Pack from Joyce Paul. I haven't had a chance to play with this one yet, but watch for a layout soon. Thanks again Joyce!!  You can find this paper pack here at Funky Playground Designs, where Joyce has recently started selling her designs.

Last but not least is a gift certificate for a CU product by Mia Designs.  I got the Grab Bag #3 with this certificate.  I can't tell you what is in it, hee hee, but it is a fabulous grab bag!  You can find this grab bag here at Scrap N Tag.

Whooo I told you I had been lucky lately!  I've got so many new goodies to play with I just don't know where to start. LOL  I'm so very thankful to all of these wonderful designers for their RAK's they mean a lot to me. My DH and I live on a fixed income. And with prices going up everyday it is hard to afford just the necessities. Let alone the extra things such as these fabulous designs for my habit - digi-scrapping.  

God gave you a gift of 86,400 seconds today.  Have you used one to say "thank you?"  ~William A. Ward

I'll be back real soon with a kit for you all!!

The kit used in this layout above, is Angels Tears Collab by Kim Broedelet and Chaos Lounge Creations. Which I was lucky enough to win over at DST. A big THANKS again to Kim and Jenni for this gorgeous kit! You can find it here at DSO or here at ESS.  I also won several other nice designs this week, I'll be back in another post to tell you more about them.

 

I enjoy designing or should I say trying to design, my designs will never be as good as these wonderful designers in this post today. It means a lot to me though when you take the time to show me how you have used my designs. This week I've received not one but two layouts using my designs.  Thank you Kathryn and Michelle for sharing these with me and allowing me to share them with everyone.

This one is by Kathryn, she used a wordart from the Cousins We Be wordart package. Isn't this an adorable layout with all these cousins?

And this one is from Michelle, she used the Grungy Dots kit that  I made for the May 09 color challenge at DSO. Another adorable layout, doesn't her daughter looks so happy ringing the bell?  You may click on Michelle's photo to go and leave her some love.

These layouts have also been added to the slide show 'Your Layouts' on the right side of my blog. If you would like to see your layout posted here using my designs, feel free to send them to me along with giving me permission to post them.

 

Now if you are still with me, LouCee has generously allowed me to give you this cluster frame that I made using parts of her Oooh La La kit.  It is the same frame used in my layout above.  You will find the downloads below the preview, there is a choice of three different places to download this frame.
