Daydreaming of Spring

I was in the mood to take and scrap some spring photos the other day, so I snapped some of my daughter watering my garden plants, something she insists on doing every day! Golden Girls has a girly springy kit that was perfect for the photo I took!

Spring Has Sprung at ES

It's been awhile since I've highlighted the new releases at Elemental Scraps, but I specifically wanted to do so today because I've been in the mood to scrap Spring pages, and today ES is full of new springtime goodies to get your pages scrapped.

First, check out the April Color Play. I love the color swatch, truly good for boy or girl pages!

I scrapped a photo of my daughter trying her hardest to climb up onto the fort on our playset in the backyard. She will definitely have it mastered by summer I think! I used various color play items from BZB Designs, Connie Prince, and genia Beana.

Bella Gypsy has a fantastic rainy day kit called Drizzle Drops that I can't wait to get my hands on. I love how the colors would be great for baby boy pages too!

Litabells Designs has a breathtakingly beautiful kit called A Mother's Love. After this post I'm going to dig through my photos, hoping there was a Mother's Day that I have yet to scrap!

Spinky Dink Scraps has a fun girly spring kit, jam packed with elements. Rainbows, birds, flowers, grass, butterflies... what more could you want from a spring kit?

Happy Spring Scrapping!

Easter Scrapped!

The very BEST thing about digi scrapping vs. paper scrapping... I can get layouts done so quickly after the photos are taken! Just a week later, and Easter is scrapped!

Kits used are: Jelly Beanies by Bella Gypsy & Connie Prince, My Honey Bunny by Connie Prince, and The Hunt Is On by Golden Girls Digital Designs.

A "Golden" Opportunity!

Sorry about the cheese factor in the title, but I am super excited to announce I was accepted to create for one of my favorite designers EVER, the Golden Girls! I absolutely love every single product Leslie cranks out. I am still in shock that she offered me a position on her team! Here's a layout I did for her amazing Easter kit, "The Hunt Is On". It's available at Scrap Matters and on her own website found here.

This is an older photo that I hadn't scrapped yet, probably because I really don't like the way I look in it. I was 7 months pregnant with my daughter at the time. Here's a trick for photos you don't like... turn them black & white!
