Garden Party

"Garden Party," a sweet, summery kit is being released over at Scraps by Andrea today.

When kits like this are released, I find myself wishing I had a little girl to scrap girly pages for! Instead, I borrowed a photo of my niece from my sister. Isn't she adorable?
eta: Yay! This LO was chosen as LOTD over at Brownie Scraps!

And, I did a layout with my son, Jak Jak, just to show you that the kit isn't just for girls.

Be sure to visit the CT blog and check out the other layouts from the whole SBA creative team!
Here is your (girly!) freebie QP.

"This is the Place"

I just wanted to share another layout I have done recently.


Little Learner

I have been in search of a cute school-themed kit for scrapping school photos. Luckily for me, Laurie at Lauries' Scraps is releasing one today! It is called "Little Learner" and it is dang cute.

With two of my boys going to school this year I am sure I will find lots of uses for this adorable kit. Here is a page featuring photos from my oldest's last day of pre-school this past May.

And, because I am so nice, I made it into a desktop for you. There is no calendar on it - so you can use it year round! There are four different screen sizes in the file (1280x800, 800x600, 1064x768 & 1680x1024).

"Happy Birthday Opa!," "Hogle Zoo"

I have been so busy working on pages from 2008 that I am falling a little behind on my 2009 pages! Oops. I am going to get caught up before I'm too far behind though. I don't want to have more catch up work than I already have!
