...some of the team:

Judith known as the51mom at digitals is an artist and a singer. Scrapbooking helps fill her creative urge.
I am known as lorig in the digital galleries is a storyteller. Scrapbooking is one of the means I use to tell stories. I can also be found blogging for Digitals from time to time and regularly at My Fragmented Journey. I love to learn and try new things.
Caroline is a proud grandmother. We can see from her page that family is important to her. She enjoys genealogy and combines that with her scrapbook hobby.
Stephanie lives in Washington State. She homeschools her two girls during the week and works weekends at a bounce house center. She loves reading, cooking, playing board games... Her favorite color is blue, but finds that since her girls came along she looks at pinks and purples consistently with a smile :)
Theresa is also a part of the team.
We have each used a different one of Katie's kits for our introduction pages. Do you know which kits were used? Let us know your favorite kit in the comments and your guesses on what has been used.

Sum it Up Saturday

I can't believe that it's finally Saturday. Better than that, it's only 7:30 on Saturday night and my homework for the rest of the week is done and turned in. I actually have a little free time for myself for a change, and I'm struggling over whether I want to go finish the 2nd book in The Hunger Games series, or play with graphics. Don't hate me, but I think reading is going to win. I'll have another sneak peek of my next kit for you for tomorrow's Sneak Peek Sunday.

You can still get the 2nd quickpage made with Austin, and I hope that you like it as much as I do!

Sneak Peek Sunday

Here's a sneak peek at what I'm currently working on. It will be coming out really soon.

Just a little something to look forward to. I hope you're all enjoying your Sunday. I spent most of mine in the car. We managed to get 4 of our sons, our sons' girlfriends, and our granddaughter together all in one place at one time. That was the first time that we've had the boys all together in several years, and we had a lot of fun.

New Release and a Freebie!

It's been a bit since I released my last kit, Alice. This one took a bit longer for a good reason. This is the kit that I've named for my son, Austin. I've done kits inspired by many of my family members, but haven't done one for the person who first inspired me to scrap and then to design. My son Austin is a complex individual. He likes to read and gets good grades. He likes to cook and craft. He even likes to go shopping and watch chick flicks. He also likes to play football, fish, and hang out with his Dad and uncles. I've tried to include a wide variety of papers and elements in this kit, because he is such a diverse personality.

I loved playing with this kit while I was making it, so I put together a couple of quick pages for you. I have the first one available for download now.

This download is no longer available. Be sure to leave me a comment and let me know how you like it!

I hope everyone is having a happy Easter.

Easter Gifts

This download is no longer available. They aren't Easter eggs, and they don't come in a basket, but I have Easter gifts just the same. I'm giving away not one, but two quick pages made with elements from Easter Parade.

Another great product using my Easter Parade kit is the Easter Parade Bracket Album. This is a great standalone item for making bracket shaped albums, but each bracket page can be used as a cluster on a full-size page.

Here's an example done by Caroline:

Feel free to click the image to leave her some love in the Digitals GalleryAnd now that you've read through all that (you did read it all, didn't you?), here are the freebies!

I hope you and your family have a blessed holiday!

New Kitties

I've been wanting a kitty. Badly. I live in the sticks (my apologies to the sticks, because they are probably more populated than where I live.) I work from home and go to school from home. Austin is in school all day, and my husband works really long hours. Really long. To put it mildly, I get a little (okay, a LOT!) lonely.

I've been pinning pictures of kitties on Pinterest and sending the pictures to my husband in email. I've been looking at the local shelter website, and sending him links to likely looking kitties. Nothing. It was the only thing on my Christmas list. Nothing.

Yesterday, my husband started sending ME links of kitties from the local shelters, and then he sent me a phone number about someone giving away kittens. I called. I described the kitties to him in IM, and he told me to have her hold TWO of them. So now I'm the proud mama of two adorable babies. And if you don't think I'm right about them being adorable, just look for yourself.

Am I right, or am I right? That white lump is the toy lamb that I bought Austin when he was a baby. He didn't want the babies to be lonely or scared. Do you have pets? Do you scrapbook about your pets? Leave me a comment and share your layout links. I'd love to see your furbabies!

Scraplift Challenge

"Bad artists copy. Good artists steal."
Pablo Picasso

Hi everyone, my name is Lori and going to help Katie highlight some things for the blog. Hopefully we will have full introductions within the next week of the team that is helping. I can be found in the Digitals gallery as lorig.

We wanted everyone to know about the challenge Katie is hosting at Digitals. The Scraplift challenge for April and May has been posted. Katie has chosen a piece by Angie Young as the inspiration piece. It has many liftable elements. You could be inspired by the design, the colors, the mood invoked. Use that piece that inspires you most and create your own page then link it up in the gallery at Digitals for a bonus.

Katie has created a mini kit to go with the Lovely in Lilac theme. For full details on how to earn this mini check out the challenge. You are welcome to leave a comment here as well. We'd love to see what you've entered. Hopefully we can all inspire each other.

Sneak Peek Sunday

I'm declaring today Sneak Peek Sunday. My guys both stayed up way too late, and I went to bed early, so I woke up just as they went to bed. No fighting for computer time on this Sunday morning, and I decided to take advantage of it. I've been working on a new kit (and some coordinating freebies!) and decided to give everyone a sneak peek.

Any guesses as to the theme? Leave me a comment telling me what you think!
