This money goes directly to the foundation no store or designers will receive any funds. It was alot of fun and turned out great! Its for a really good cause as well.

This is my contribution to the kit. There is so much more to see!

Bad Blogger Bad blogger! lol

Well i guess i haven't been too good about blogging lately. Sorry about that. A few things have been going on. First my sister had to work some crazy hours so we won't be doing the easter collab after all. But i'm sure we will get together on something else very soon.

What else....still haven't finished up the elements for my imagine kit. It may just stay as a paper pack lol. I started working on another kit a boy one. and I'm trying to make some badge albums for myself out of it and if it turns out ok i'll let ya know.

I was going crazy spring cleaning the week before easter since we host Easter dinner at our house. That left me completely exhausted...or so i thought! Turns out I am pregnant with my 4th child! Which is fine by me I wanted four so this is it! its all down hill from here right? lol

Anyway I've been really discouraged when it comes to designing lately. I'm not sure i can put the hours into that i need to be successful. I'll will see how i feel. So far in this pregnancy i just feel really tired not too sick yet...

any way...hopefully i'll be back in a few days with something exciting like a freebie! who knows it could happen lol!

Hybrid Project idea Notebook-Journal

I have a hybrid project for you today!! This project was inspired by a gift I received from my sister. I printed papers and elements from my Wildflower kit to cover a regular size notebook. Then I took ribbon and cut and tied them around the spiral. This project is a quick and easy way to take something ordinary and a little punch to it. These notebooks would be great for kids to take to school or for a quick personalized gift.

One note i would recommend using some sort of glue dots or spray adhesive rather than a glue stick. I used a glue stick at first and had to go back and reglue. lol Maybe roughing up the surface would help because it does seem a little glossy. Also I printed on regular computer paper which turned out fine. However one little spec of water wrecks it. (as you may see in my photo this happened to me) So if this is something you want to last a while or for small children I would recommend putting some kind of protection on the cover.

It's also a good idea to take a small sample of the papers with you when picking out ribbon. I forgot which is why my green isn't exactly the perfect match uggh! Oh well you get the general idea right? lol

Don't forget you can't pick up my Wildflower kit at Digital Scrapn Designs for only $3.99 the entire month of March! Grab it before the sale ends!
Please stop by the Gallery and show us your lo's. And join a challenge in the forums.

Whats up and New Challenges in the forums

I wish i could say our little vacation was restful but while it was a lot of fun we did so much running around i feel like i didn't get to relax at all. lol We went to a waterpark resort. It was really nice we got a three bedroom condo so there was plenty of room for my family and my sisters. The kids loved it. I did too. Im not into the slide thing really. I lean towards the wave pool and lazy river. The main reason for the trip was to celebrate my dh's birthday. The poor guy was sick almost the whole time we were there. Fortunately he did feel well enough for the two of us to go out to a nice dinner alone one night.
When we got back...the stomach flu hit each member of our family one at a time. uggh I was the last one to get it. but luckily i lost three pounds out of the deal. hopefully i can start exercising and keep those pounds off and lose a few more. 10 more to go to get back to my pre baby weight!
Well i have a lot of catching up to do in the digi world. hopefully i will be caught up by the end of the week.

We have a few more challenges going on the the forums this month and I hosting one as well. Check them out here.

We have some new designers in the shop. Stop by the store and check em out here.

Ok now to get that kit completed.
