 I have a great kit to share with you today!
I can't tell you how wonderful this kit is, in more ways than one.  About THIRTY designers got together and contributed to make this kit--out of compassion, to a family that recently lost a son to Leukemia. The Digital designers have done it before, and I'm sure will do it again! To read the story of this family, you can go here:
Then, you can contribute to the cause by buying this fantastic kit called Tribute to Tyler by going here: All the money from this kit goes right to Tylers family.  And to the designers that contributed to this kit, thank you so much for being the caring and compassionate people that you are. Prayers go out to Tyler's family and friends.  Here is the flyer announcing the kit, and then the  list of  fabulous contributors!  

Be sure to stop by the store and pick this great kit up.  Besides getting a wonderful kit, you are contributing to a worthy cause.  Thanks for stopping by today!  May God bless you!

Boy, have I got a lot to share today!  I've been busy despite some internet problems!  Have I told you lately how much I hate Internet problems??  Well, I do!
I have some fun news to share--I'm now on a new Creative team at a store that just opened for business on November 4th.  In preparation for the opening, the creative team was asked to do some layouts to fill the new gallery!  Well, I helped out a bit!  I want to share some of them with you now.  The first layout is of Ashlyn and Emily!  They are such sweet hearts!  I used  a kit from Created by Jill called Sand in my Toes!  It's a great kit for someone that has grandchildren that visit the beach often.  (hehe) I also used a CU template from Jen C Designs November Template Grab Bag. (I love Jen's templates!!)

 I'm not normally a white space scrapper, but every once in awhile, I try it!  I love how this one came out.  The photos are of Hope a few years ago.  Look how sweet she is!!  Isn't she just adorable?  I used Imagine by Cinnamon Scraps
and Border it Volume 1 by Three Sweet Chicks Designs.
 In this layout, I put Micah and his girly cousins in a PINK layout!  I'm sure he'll love it when he sees it (laugh here!)  Well, I know he loves his cousins anyhow!!  I used a sweet kit called So Girl by Craft-Tastrophic Designs.  I loved the cute hearts in this kit!! 
Most sites have the designers make up a collab kit each month.  The kit I used here, was a collab for the grand opening!  It is very versatile, and has such cute cute elements!  You'd love it I'm sure!!  It's called With Love Collab by the amazing designers at With Love Studio.  I also used a great template from the  Play Park Templates kit by Fran B Designs
I love this kit called Boho Chic by Double Dutch Designs!  I love my grandsons, and don't live by them, so this kit was just perfect for me to tell them how much I love them!!  The kit has a happy feel to it--and I'm always happy with I think about these sweet munchkins!  I also used a CU template from Colies Corner
 This kit, Playing for Keeps by Designs by Angel was the perfect kit for this wedding photo of my daughter and her husband!  They looked so good together didn't they? I also used a fun template  from Fran B Designs kit called Play Park Templates.  I love the scalloped border on this template!  It really added that touch I was looking for in this layout. 
 Bug In Love by Craft-Tastrophic Designs was a fun kit with all the little lady bugs and hearts!!  When I think of Abby, and her love for nature and her sweet ways, I also think of lady bugs for some reason!  She loves ladybugs--maybe that is the reason!  I had these photos from a few years ago, with her little mischievous jelly smile, and wanted to scrap them with this cute kit!!  I also used  a great template from Journal It Volume 1] by Three Sweet Chicks
 For this cute photo of Jacob in the snow, I used the beautiful With Love Grand Opening Collab by With Love Studio Designers again!  (Did I already say I love that kit?)  Besides the collab, I also used  another  great template from the Journal It Volume 1 pack by Three Sweet Chicks
 Recently, Hope played the piano for grandpa and I!  It was fun to realize that the love of music is being passed down to another generation.  I love that!  Of course, while we were there, Drew had to play for us too!!  Hannah is teaching Hope.  When Hope was born, we all knew those glorious long fingers would someday make wonderful music!!  I used a kit called Xavier Rocks by Designs by Angel and another template from Three Sweet Chicks template kit.
I remember when Hope was born.  She was so tiny, and I still love making layouts from that precious  time!!  All the other babies in our family were pretty big, so this was a little different for all of us!  She was so pink and cute!!  I used the kit Imagine by Cinnamon Scraps and another template from Fran B Designs kit Play Park template to help me remember that sweet time.
I have other layouts I've done since the store opened, but I think I'll save them for another post!  Thanks so much for stopping by--and be sure to stop by the new store With Love Studio and take a look around!  The designers are all marvelous, and the forum is friendly!!  (and we have a fun creative team too!)  hehe!!
In the meantime, may God bless you and yours!!  And don't be a stranger!
