Today is the 10th anniversary of  Dale Earnhardt's death at the Daytona 500.  His son is driving in today's race.  I pray for a safe race for all of the racers today!  Let the season begin. I'm multi-tasking--watching the race and digi scrapping at the same time.  Such fun!
So far, I only finished one layout--but I love it.
I loved this Cute Safari Collection by Elker W.  It was perfect for my photo of my little grandson when we took him to the zoo a few years ago.  He was so eager to see the animals, and he KNEW he was safe while he was holding his grandpa's hand.  What a testament to trust in his grandpa!  What a sweet boy he was (and still is!)  Now he's a BIG boy though! 
You can find this great kit here:
I also used a template called SCD Boys Blush.
Here is the layout!
Well, back to scrapping!  Have a great Sunday afternoon.  (We tivoed the race so we could watch it after church!)  God Bless you all, and thank you all for stopping by!!

 Again I find my blog sadly neglected!  Poor thing!  I've been busy creating and having fun with some fabulous kits!  The designers I help our are just too good!  I only have one layout to share tonight!  Tomorrow is release day, so I might be back then.
For this layout, I used Tranquil Moments by Milly Dee for this layout.
You can find the kit here: and I also used the template for the template challenge at DigitalScrapCafe.  You can find the template challenge here:  I hope you'll think about joining the challenge!

This is our Noah.  Such a sweet little boy! 
Thanks for stopping by.  Come back again soon!

I have two layouts to share.  They are the same people--many years apart!  :)  Besides years between the photos, there are many many memories we've shared.  In the older layout, they were just two kids in love.  In the second layout, they are seasoned parents and had even ventured into the world of grandparent-hood.  It's been a great journey. 

In the first layout, I used Aimee Harrison's new Kit Love Letters found here: and her template package here:
For the second layout I used Pixelily designs Glorious Sentiments kit and template pack for this layout.  You can find them here: and here:

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  Please come back again!  God Bless you.

This has been a pretty productive week full of scrapping.  I love it!!  The designers I play for have outdone themselves with the wonderful kits they've designed.  First off, I made two layout with a kit from Kathy Winters called Funky Valentine.  For one of them I used a template from PhotoCowGirl!  I think I rearranged a template from biographitti for the other one.  You can find both Kathy Winters and Photocowgirl at Gingerscraps.  Here are those two layouts!

Next is a layout I did with a fun kit from Modern June called February Capture 365.  She's doing a new part of this huge kit every month throughout the year, especially for the people involved in doing the project 365.  It is probably a daunting task!!  But Kathy is up to it--she's fabulous!!  You can find Modern June exclusively at  I also used a template from Colies Corner.  I love templates!  These are older photos of Abby, but she's still a sweetie!!
Jen C Designs released a cute kit this week too!  It is called I love you Just a Little!  The bundle even comes with the great templates--and you all know how much I love templates!!  This layout is about Abby too.  I guess I must be missing her this week!!  You can find Jen's things at Funkyplayground and at Digiscrapsdrivein! 

The next two layouts were done with a kit from Ruby Lane called In My heart that is available at Funkyplayground!  The first one is my granddaughter Hope and the other one is my daughter Becky and her baby Sarah.  Sarah is four years old now!!  My, how time flies!

 Polka Dot Pixels released a perfect kit for BOYS this week!  It was called About a boy, and fit my little guys to a "T" so I made a few layouts of their photos!  You can find Polka Dot Pixels exclusively at 2 peas!  I love this kit!!   Look how cute my boys are!!  (They are two of my grandsons!)  They can be found exclusively in Tennessee! 

I did a couple more layouts of Noah--the first one is from a kit called Find Joy from Dianne Rigdon exclusively at 2 peas. 

The other one is from Sugar Pie Scraps called My sugar Pie!  Noah was a little younger here!  He is such a little doll!
 This one is all three boys, and I used the new kit from Caged Bird Designs called Anchor Me Down for this one!  I love the colors in this kit!  I also used a great template from Jen Maddocks Designs and it is featured in the Mystery Challenge at this month!  Come on over and play!
 The next one was fun!  The photos were taken on my Birthday this year.  My son's family came over to help celebrate with me, and it was so fun to see my son and his kids interact with each other.  In this layout, Adam is the horsie for Hope, but Andrew was trying to get on too.  Chuck was trying to keep the kids from falling off Adam's back!  After Adam collapsed, both the little ones got on Chuck's back for awhile too.  I used a great kit called My Everyday by Le Pingouin Designs, and it can be found at

 That is all I have for today!  I hope I can get here a little more often so I don't have so many at one time!!  Thanks so much for stopping by.  May God Bless you!!  Come back again soon.

A post by Stef at DST challenged us to make a layout without any photos this week, so I made one about my memories from Valentines day when I was a child.  I used the Vintage Valentine kit from Digital Scrap Cafe for the kit, and had a great time remembering past Valentines days.   I love how it turned out, and proved to myself that the memories speak louder than photos sometimes.  Here is my layout!

Polka Dot Pixels released a great new kit this week called About a Boy.  Well, since I DO have little boys in my life, this kit was a dream to use!  I loved all the cute elements and the great boy colors!  I did these two layouts with that kit!  Don't I have the cutest little grandsons?

The picture of Jonah was taken a couple of years ago, but he still enjoys helping his father with any chore!!  He's FIVE now ya know!!  :)  Speaking of him being five, I did a layout of that this week too!  I love how it turned out.  That photo really captured Jonah to a T!  He's such a vibrant little guy!! 
Because he turned five this week, I was looking back at some of his baby photos, and had to make a layout of when he was a baby--just to see how much he is growing up!  He was a beautiful baby, but he's growing up to be a fine little man now!!  Here is his baby photo layout. 
Wasn't he just too cute?

Thanks so much for stopping by!  I hope to see you here again real soon.  God Bless you!

 There are a few new releases today that I wanted to bring to your attention!  First, Wyld Web Designs released a new kit called Tiny Dancer!  I made a layout of Molly and her cute little "before meal" dance that she does!  Although I'm sure this type of a layout isn't what Char (Wyld Web Designs) had in mind for her cute new kit, having a fur baby that dances comes in handy sometime!! 

Isn't it so cute?  I just love it.  I used TINY DANCER by Wyld Web Designs found here:
and a cute template from Bella Gypsy for this layout of my dog Molly and her morning dancing routine!

You should see the cute Valentine Day Printable Cards that Graham Like the Cracker has just released!  They are darling!!  Be sure to pick them up at ScrapMatters and get busy making those Valentine cards for your loved ones!!  Look at them!  Aren't they just so cute?

They can ALL be found right here:  Printable Valentine Day Cards!!

Thanks for stopping by!  Gotta go make my Valentine cards!

Again, it's been a long time since I've posted!  I just get so busy having fun with the designers kits and making layouts that I forget to post them here too!!

Today I have a FREEBIE for you!  It was made by one of my fellow CT members of the Marshmella Designs team, Jayne!  She's awesome!  Thanks so much Jayne!  It goes perfectly with the kit that Marshmella released a this past week called Puppy Love! 

I made this sweet kit about Molly with the kit.  I told the story of how Molly came to be our special friend!  Dogs can be such great companions, but they deserve a home to call their own, and a family to love and care for them.  If you can be a forever and ever home for a fur friend, don't forget that your local pound has many lovely dogs up for adoption!  The fee is usually minimal, and they come with all their shots up to date. They will be spayed or neutered, and ours even came with a microchip just in case they get lost!  The love and companionship you get from a fur friend is well worth the initial investment!
That brings me to the great freebie!  Thanks so much Jayne for the wonderful alphabet you made!  Isn't it just so cute?

Have a great day, and don't forget to stop by again soon!  May God show you lots of blessings today!
