Here is what you will be grabbing.

A Traditional Christmas

Well, so far my Christmas decorating is not traditional. We are going to have 3 trees instead of the one big one. We are going to have each kid decorate their own tree and mom and dad will decorate the third tree.

We have planned the traditional dinner of calamari, antipasta, meat sauce, eggplant, and much more. Plus the Italian pastries and other assorted desserts not to mention a fruit plate.

Do you have the perfect kit to scrap your holiday pictures yet? Than again, you can never have too many holiday kits!!!

A Traditional Christmas by Christin is exactly as it's name implies. It has the traditional colors of red, white and green with gold and glitter. There is a Santa hat, lots of snowflakes for the white Christmas eveyone hopes to see, bows, presents, ornaments and a tree!

Here is a layout I made using this kit. Don't you just love the glitter and gold!
I made a QP out of this layout for you. Grab it today!

Summers End kit

STS had a beautiful color palette for their color challenge this month and I couldn't resist working with it. Other designers made coordinated kits that you could pick up at STS here.

I didn't think I was going to get this done on time, but I'm glad I did. (And I think you would be too once you take a look at it.) Be sure to pick up the two downloads because the kit is pretty big.

Little Monsters for Halloween

How many little monsters do you have? I had some pictures left from last Halloween that still needed to be scrapped. And I know I'll be taking plenty of pictures in a couple of weeks.

Lovely Creations has the perfect kit for those Little Monsters. Actually, the name of the kit is Little Monsters. The colors are the usual Halloween colors but the elements include many little monsters including a vampire, mummy, reaper and ghost.

Here is a preview of the kit which is linked to Lovely Creations store at STS.

Aren't those little monsters to die for!!!

Here's a layout using the brighter colors.

This post wouldn't be complete unless I offered my fans a freebie. Here's two I made that coordinate with Little Monsters... a starter page and a corner cluster. Hope you enjoy them.

Wonderful Fall Freebie and much more

This is my favorite layout I made this week. This was a challenge of the week at SNP where we had to cut the word out of a piece of paper! Yes, it's from Disney! It is on the Boardwalk. Kit used is Summer Sailor by Digital Harmony Design Studio.

This layout I made following speed scrap instructions at STS. More about this layout later.

Have you been to Scraps N' Pieces new store yet? They are in their second week of their Grand Opening Sales. This week all digital kits are on sale.

Speaking of sales, Lovely Creations is retiring some of her products at STS. Grab them while you can! They will be gone after October 17th.
Here's a layout I made using 4th of July Celebration. And it has nothing to do with the 4th!

Lovely Creations has released her newest kit Wonderful Fall.

Here is a look at the kit! Aren't those owl eyes to die for! This kit has great fall colors, beautiful fall flowers and leaves. It also has two full alphas.

Well, remember that layout I said I'd tell you more about later... I made it into a QP for you! And if you haven't been to my blog in a while, you need to read down a couple of posts too, to see what you missed!

What's New

A lot is new, that's for sure.

Have you seen the new Scraps 'N Pieces store, forum (SNP). They are having their Grand Opening Sale all month long. Check out the flier for details. Flier linked to forum.

I joined there already! They have some fantastic new challenges and new designers I haven't seen at STS. Christin from Lovely Creations (you remember, I'm on her CT) has also joined at SNP.
And if you like sales, SNP is the place to be all month long. Each week they are putting different things on sale in their store; commercial use items, kits, QP's, and word art and templates. See flier (which is linked to store).


Speaking of Lovely Creations... Christin made three parts to the October BAK which when put together make a full kit. I used pieces from all three pieces for the layout below.

And here is the layout.

The train has left the station and so did I

By the time you read this post, I'll be in Disney World. We would have completed our first ever cruise. With our first cruise being the most magical, we went on the Disney Dream. I'm sure you'll see lots and lots of layouts from this experience over the next few months and probably years because I know I still grab a picture or two from our trip in 2009 to scrap.

Anyway, the theme for this month's blog train is a Little Bit of Me Time. I LOVE the colors of this train and had this completed probably two weeks ago. I could have done more but trip plans and other obligations got in the way.

I don't have all the other links to post because not everyone is done with their contribution yet. I did grab the one's that were ready when I wrote this post. You can always follow another contributors post. Don't forget to leave love. Everyone likes hearing what you think.

Here are some of the other stops along the way.

School is opening and a new Lovely Creations kit

Lovely Creations has a new kit that was just released. It is called Preschooler. It is not only useful for preschool pictures but for art pictures as well.

Christin has done it again with her fantastic kit specific elements. There is a ruler, paint splats, a bookbag, paints, crayons and whole bunch of kit necessities like ribbons and bows and flowers.

Before I show you Preschooler, I want to show you my portion of the blog train that will be released on September 1st. The theme is "Me Time." You will have to come back on the first to pick it up. This time I will not have the whole list of participants on my blog, just some to get you started. I'm leaving for vacation and I'll be scheduling the post before I leave. Not everyone has their portion ready yet so I can only get the codes for those that are ready so far.

Here is the sneak peak!!!

Now on to Preschooler. Here is the kit which is linked to Lovely Creation store at STS.

Here is a brag book page I made using this kit.
