More Exciting News

My last tidbit of exciting news for this week (I can't believe it's Friday already?!) is that I have joined the CT over at Lauries Scraps. I am way excited and love her kits. For my first project I got to work with her new "Stars and Stripes" kit.I love the vintage, muted colors in this kit. I love, love, LOVE the stitched fireworks and the included alphabet too. It would be perfect for Independence Day, or summer activities in general.

I've got something a little different for today's freebie - a desktop! You can insert your own fun photo. I've included four different sizes in the file (1280x800, 800x600, 1064x768 & 1680x1024), so one should work for you!

Octopus Garden

This darling kit, "Octopus Garden," was just released by Cara over at Sweet Tomato Designs.
It is an expansion of her "Octopus Garden" kit from the So You Think You Can Design? contest over at DigiScrap Addicts. I had pictures from last week's first swim of the summer just waiting to be scrapped and this kit was perfect!

A freebie QP for you!
Link Expired!!



Wahoo! We reached five thousand hits! And it took less than a month! To celebrate, I got all creative and designed my own alphabet to give away. It started with the word art I did here. I liked it so much I decided to expand it to a whole alphabet, complete with numbers and some punctuation. So here you are, the very first Frogpaw Studio Digi-Scrapping product - Asphalt Alpha!

Funky Town Revamped

Ta Da! The first freebie of the week!

I am thrilled to announce that I have been invited to join the CT over at Sweet Tomato Designs. I love Cara's work, so I was super excited when she asked me to join. I didn't even apply to join, so it was a suprise and a big compliment. As a celebratory gift, I made a QP out of the layout that inspired Cara to invite me to join. It is made with her "Ordinary Moments" kit from this year's So You Think You Can Design? contest over at DigiScrap Addicts. She is currently adding to it and it will be available in her store in July.

Sizzlin' Summer Sale

There's a big sale at Stuff to Scrap that starts this week. Be sure to click on over and check it out.


Get ready...

This upcoming week I'll have at least three freebies for you! There will be a QP on Tuesday, a desktop on Friday and an alpha somewhere in between (when we reach 5000 hits!). Plus, I have lots of exciting news. So keep checking back.
In the meanwhile, here are three more layouts I've done recently. Enjoy!


Speed Scrap Tomorrow!

There is another speed scrap over at Stuff to Scrap on Saturday. Andrea, of Scraps by Andrea, is hosting this one. The participation prize is an add-on to her "Funky Town Revamped" kit that is being released on Monday. Check back here on Tuesday for my layouts and QP freebie!

"I Want to ride my Tricycle"

I have some exciting news for you all. But, you'll have to wait a few days for it. It will be exciting though (at least for me). And it will involve at least one freebie! In the meantime, enjoy this layout:


"Cheerio Necklaces"

Another page from our 2008 family book. I used a kit from Sweet Tomato Design called Ordinary Moments.


My Father the Fisherman

There is a brand spankin' new kit over at Scraps by Andrea. It is called "My Father the Fisherman."
This kit is great for Father's Day photos, or just fun camping or fishing photos. I love the masculine color scheme. For my layouts I used some photos from previous camping trips.

"Smarty Pants" and "Easter Egg Hunt"

Another two pages from our 2008 family book. I am working on my 2009 and 2008 books right now. When I'm done with my 2008 catch up work, I'll move on to the 2007. I've got a long ways to go!In other news, I'm working on a special freebie to celebrate my 5000th hit. I'm not sure wether to do a QP or to branch out into another area of design - an alpha maybe? Any suggestions??


"Thunderbirds" and "Easter Eggs"

As I am getting back to my own scrapbook work I find that I'm having a bit of a creativity block. Maybe I need to take a break, or look through my scrapbooking magazines again. I'll work on that. In the meantime, I'll share a page or two with you that I've done recently.


More Lil' Monsters

This is the last of the "old" kits from Scraps by Andrea. Now I will just be doing layouts for the new kits she releases. I think her plan is to release one per week for the next few weeks. I am hoping to get some more work done on my family album now that I'm caught up with SBA. I'll post some of those layouts here as well.
"More Lil' Monsters" is a companion kit to the "Lil' Monsters" kit from Scraps by Andrea. Mostly just the color scheme is different, but there are a couple of new elements and papers. My layouts:

Lil' Monsters

To tell you the truth, i have been putting off doing my layouts for this kit. I am not really a fan of neon color schemes. But, I made it work. I am actually pretty happy with how my layouts turned out. So, without further ado, I give you the "Lil' Monsters" kit from Scraps by Andrea. My layouts, featuring two of my lil' monsters:
