{launching march 1...

Check out The Scrap Review and share the love for the chance to win some great prizes!

{doin it digi...

So, Christine's first challenge for March is to do a digital layout. I am so glad for this one because it is something I want to play with more and keep learning. Here are my pros and cons of "doin it digi":

1} You can resize your images and elements without paying extra and change them up as you design your page.
2} You can change the colors within any kit by just using your "hue" {control u} slider.
3} You can scrapbook all day with no "mess or evidence" to clean up before your hubby and kids get home. :0)

1} I can never seem to find a good way to organize them. I have so many on cds that I can't keep track of what I have. {Okay, so my other scrapbooking goodies really aren't much better.}
2} I have still never printed any of the digi layouts that I have done.

So, here is a page that I played with today. I am posting this early so I have to force myself to get another one done next week. :0)
Thanks Christine for giving me the boost to open up my digi files again!

{tryin to get organized...

With "collecting" so many Thickers lately, I needed to come up with a way to organize my stickers, rubons, etc. So, I used an extra album that I had and put them in by color. At least they're not just thrown on my table now. Hoping to do the same thing with my pp and organize by manufacturer...

{well, it's after 9am here in the midwest..., time to announce the winner of the felties!

It is...Christine N. !!!

Congrats! Please send me your addy and I'll get them shipped to you. Thank you everyone for playing along and for sharing your blogs! I hope everyone has fun doing a little "hoppin".

{boot camp...

Coe had an Army birthday party this last year. The invite shown on the page can be viewed HERE.
Needless to say, it poured down rain that night and we weren't able to do any of the outdoor activites or have the campout, but the kids had a ball running in the rain and yes, getting all muddy. I have lots more pics from this to scrap yet...maybe another day.
