I can't believe that it is July! Seriously, where did time go? My baby just turned 4 on the 22nd of June and my oldest will be 8 on the 31st of July. School will be starting back up at the end of the month and next thing you know, the Christmas holidays will be here again. I feel like I just took down the tree. What about you? Has the year just flown or what? I have lots to share with ya today. Some sales, deals, layouts and new stuff so keep reading all the way to the end!
So I made a new friend online. Some of you may know her already. Her name is Sophia Davies and she sells at Digitals. We had mutual friends and follow each other on twitter and Facebook. Well, today she sent me the links to this super cute Liberty Mini. Isn't it adorable? I love the swirls because they remind me of fireworks when they start to fall. I can't wait to create something special with this kit and you can bet I will share it with you. In the meantime, you can find her shop HERE or click on the image below.
Also, it is that time of the week for the fun and fabulous Fairy Finds at ESS. This week Charlie (of Charlie's Digiscraps) has her adorable Colors of a Geisha kit on sale for only $1. That is an awesome deal. I loved this kit and if you forgot what my layout looks like using it, click HERE. To head over to get this kit, just click on the image below.
Next Caryn is having a huge 50% off sale at ALL of her SHOPS! So you can grab any of her awesome CU stuff or cute kits for half off.... go... go... go!
ENCHANTED SCRAPS STUDIOS DIGIRIDOO SCRAPS SCRAPPITTY-DOO-DAH
Remember on Sunday night I posted that I was hosting a speed scrap. Well, here is the layout that I created out of my instructions. Now I know everyone does things different, including the instructions. The first time I hosted a speed scrap, I did the instructions/layout at the same time... Horrible and I agonized over every element.. The next time, I did a layout, then made the instructions... ok but still worried and kept changing it. Now, I have the trick. I use one of my old layouts as a guide, write the instructions up and then create a new layout.... tada! This pic is of my boys the other weekend. Gramma and grampa took them to the fair and they had so much fun. I got lots of wonderful pics but this one of them both sucking on those slurpees is just adorable. I dont get to see them sit side by side very often. That usually results in a kick, or hit... and then a hit back, the a MOMMY.... so... you get the picture, right!
I used a newly released kit by Digi-Designs by Nicole called Lazy Days of Summer and for the rest of this week, you can get it on sale for only $2.99 (click the image below or any of these links).
Ok.... last thing I want to share with ya.... This is a fun one!
I am taking some time off to do those fun MOMMY things... like play Candyland 20 times a day and have water gun fights in the backyard with the boys (yes, the team up against me). But I am also taking the time to do the FUN scrapping stuff, like challenges at all the great sites and speed scraps (as many as I can). But one thing that has been in the back of my mind is doing my own challenge a day, based on the random things that inspire me. So I mentioned it to an awesome friend, Caryn and she loved the idea so much she is letting me use her forum to host it at. So now, if anyone wants to join in on one of the daily challenges, you can. You will be able to post in the forum, gallery and we will have a chat! Is that cool or what? Lets all say THANK YOU to Caryn....
If you are interested in following along with the challenges, join me HERE! Just register to post and jump in! The first challenge has been posted (but obviously NOT done as it is 3am) but I am excited for it. This particular idea has been in my head all month and is based on a song I hear all the time. 1234 by the Plain White T's. Go to the forum and check it out along with a link to the song for inspiration.
See ya there!
