Limited Edition Kits!

I am so excited to offer two Limited Edition Kits at My Scraps & More! "Remeber This" features Jillibean Soup's "Blossom Soup" collection and echo park's "Country Drive". the "Noteworthy" kit features Crate Paper's "Portrait" collection and echo park's "For the Record" line. Each kit is $14.00 with a $6 shipping charge! Depending on the interest shown in these kits, I may considering offering kits on a monthly basis! Please visit the forum here for a full listing of what is included in each kit. My goal is to make a kit that mixes well and is very affordable and I think that I have done that with both of these. They are available for purchase in the online store here. I am working on some examples of these fun kits, which will be posted soon, but wanted to make them available to you now! Let me know your thoughts!

Have a great Monday and play with paper!

playing with Watermelon

...meaning the Watermelon Gazpaucho Line from Jillibean Soup!! This line is so bright and cheerful. I just love it!! And it worked perfectly to scrap this picture of my daughter, Taylor, and her friends at Virginia beach a couple of weeks ago. To make it even easier, I used the sketch on the Jillibean Soup blog that Julie Bonner created which you can see here. Gotta love her sketches! They always, always inspire me! What about you? If you have played with this sketch or these papers, I would love for you to share!

Have a great weekend and thank goodness it is!!!

There will be an opportunity to play "catch up" later in the contest so that anyone who wants to play, can join in at any time!! This week's challenge is to make a 2 page layout and try to choose papers that normally would no go together. To say this was a challenge for we is a BIG understatement! I never make two page layouts so that in itself was the challenge for me but I did it and I am so really happy with the result! I use the mr. boy collection from Bella Blvd (which is 40% right now by the way) to create this layout of my son Connor and his best friend Kameron. If this challenge makes you get out of your box, I would love to see what you come up with...please share so we can all be inspired by you!!!

"Baby Mine"

I love this line from Fancy Pants and could not wait to dig through my pictures so the I could play with it!! This layout is of my grandson, Cole, when he was just a baby. Now he is 1 1/2 years old and never stops!! I am so glad that I will have this page to look back and remember him when he was so tiny and still! lol!!

Have a great scrappy weekend!!

"Dream Big"

I finally found some time to scrap and chose to play with "Rocket Age" by October Afternoon. I have loved this line ever since I first saw it but didn't really know what I was going to create. The obvious was to make a layout of a little boy playing with action figures like Buzz Lightyear or someone, but since my youngest is not into action figures so much anymore (and I couldn't find an old photo of him playing with them), I had to think of something else. This morning the title "Dream Big and reach for the stars" just came to me and it fit perfectly!! We all wish for our kids to "Dream big" and what better way to remind my son of this than to scrapbook it!!!

Challenge #2 of My Scraps Got Talent is due tomorrow night! The layouts that our members are creating for this sketch challenge are awesome! I hope to see more of you come over to the forums and join in!

Have a great rest of your day and may you find some time to play with paper!!
