Friday Bitz

Well -- TONS of stuff on the go!!

We are beginning a new venture after today. Well, at least DH is! But I'm behind him 100%! On Monday, he starts working as a partner in a concrete business. Check out the website (still under construction) at

I just uploaded my May kit layouts for Just Cre8 -- check it out here: Gallery

We're selling our truck! Bye bye Christine. :( I'll have to take pics and scrap her before she's gone.

Soccer starts next week -- so does yardwork, spring cleaning, and DH's new job. Oy!!

I hope your week is wonderful, full of blessings, laughter and good times. Scrapbooking too, if you are so inclined!

And -- if you get a chance -- send your child's teacher a "thank you" just to show them you care. Sometimes we never think about how thankful we are for the teachers in our lives until they are gone.

Lovin' the digi!

I've ventured out on a new limb -- digital scrapbooking. And wow, is there ever a lot to learn! But I love the challenge, the newness of it all -- and so far I have been able to find free digi elements all over the internet. Free scrapbooking stuff -- who'da thunk?!?

Thanks to Melissa -- she's the one who really got me started. Mom and I went to see her last week and she took us step by step through layouts and effects. This is truly looks so difficult, but really it is easy once you get the hang of it!

Here are my first two layouts:

Materials I used for "Me & My Papa" were: Paper & Embellishments -- Reflections Kit by Jen Reed; Stitches -- by Manu70; Overlay -- Pton Designs; Font -- Batik Regular (Photoshop)
Materials used for "My Sunset": PS7; Brushes (Obsidian Dawn); Flower (Jennilyn Designs from PolkaDotPotato); Overlays (Pton Designs & Adeyeo); Papers (Raspberry Road - Java Joe & Forget Me Not)
I can't wait to experiment more...but there is a major dilemma...there is soooo much digital material out there! Methinks I'm in big trouble...LOL!
