There's also a lovely new kit coming to my store at Scrapbook-Elements.com on Sunday, so keep your eyes peeled for some sneak peeks. I'll be posting layouts from that beautiful kit, just to tease you a little.
The left layout is from Laura, and the next two are from Mara.
Stay tuned to see more layouts this week. Have a great week everyone!

Well, it's been quite the week for me. Earlier this week, we found out from our bank that we had been defrauded of every penny in our bank account. Fortunately the bank is insured and we got our money back by Friday. Phew! Why am I telling you this? As a public announcement to be careful where you use your bank cards. Do not use just any ATM in any mall. Be safe. Use only bank machines that are connected to banks, and have security cameras. It is an unfortunate reality of the times we live in, but yes, common criminals now have a means of getting your personal information, including bank accounts and PINs from using a very tiny card reader that they can insert in any bank machine. So be careful out there folks.
Now, since my week ended on a better note than it started, I wanted to show you a little freebie that you can find at Plain Digital Wrapper this week, because I'm the Featured Designer there this week. So on top of the freebie, you'll find my products on sale there too. I hope you enjoy this little gift. It's a nice soft mini-kit that would be awesome to use for nature layouts.
Come and get it here.
On another note, this week, I hit a milestone. My late 30s will be over. I'm getting older. It's sad when you wake up on Sunday morning, turn on the radio, and find that your favourite songs from the 80s are now being called "oldies". But I've heard some pretty awesome, strong women say that life gets better in your 40s. I have a feeling it's true. In your 40s, you have life experience. Hopefully you know what you want out of life, and what you are willing to take, and what you aren't willing to take. You become more assertive (not aggressive) I suppose. And that's always a good thing.
So I hope that you've enjoyed your weekend, and that you'll have an even more amazing week!

Have you been curious about what was in my grab bag for June? Well here's what you'll find in my store. It's my grab bag revealed. I tried to put together a pretty summery bag, with some boy items, some pretty feminine items, and a classic mini-kit that can be used for any special occasion layout. Take a look!
Want to see what Mara, CT coordinator has done with the grab bag items? She's a a very talented layout designer! The layout is linked so that you can go and leave her some love!
I hope you enjoy the grab bag items. They are all linked up for you, so that you can find them easily at Plain Digital Wrapper. Hope you have an awesome weekend!

Well, it's finally here! My newest kit at Scrapbook-Elements.com! Neopolitan Sundae. I adored making this kit. First off, I think the colours are so soft and pretty. I really love this colour palette.
It's a kit so big and yummy it could only be called Neopolitan Sundae. Chocolate and strawberry with a cherry on top! Deliciously textured papers that you can use over and over again. Unique soft elements, with a twist of bling! You'll love the layered flowers, one so soft you'll reach out to touch it. The fuzzy fibers give this kit a warm cozy feel. You'll find unexpected touches of sparkle in the butterfly stamp and stained glass flower. Beautiful elements that add a unique flavour to your layouts. Don't forget the sprinkles – adorned across some luscious pink papers.

Are you looking for some inspiration to scrap something a little different? I find that whenever my mojo is running low, a little challenge usually sets it aright. I've got a bi-weekly challenge at SBE called the Everyday Living Challenge. Check this edition out.
This challenge is about scrapping everyday moments. So for the next two weeks, your challenge is to scrap something about ...
a family pet!
Scrap something about a family pet you have, or would have chosen if you don't have one. Use mostly SBE products and that's it.
I've changed things up a bit and am creating an exclusive kit just for participants of this challenge! Summer Sherbet will only be available to ELC participants!
Have fun everyone! Can't wait to see what you come up with!
These are the solid papers for Summer Sherbet, the kit made just for you! (And if you missed this challenge last week, you can get the papers if you participate in this challenge). If you have your settings set to receive private messages here, you'll get the solid papers and the new patterned papers when you post your challenge layout!
