Week 2 Submission

This week for the Designer Darling Competition we were given two colors and we had to come up with a palette and a theme. Coming up with the theme was the hard part this week until my daughter, my husband and myself were working on our second puzzle of the week. Than the idea came to me. Hence Puzzled was born.

Here is a layout I did with this kit using the inspiration pictures.

Unfortunately, if you want the kit, you'd have to go to the Stuff to Scrap forum. Registration is required but free. I'll have a freebie for this kit on my blog soon... either an alpha or an add-on. Everyone needs to be registered in order to vote for their favorite kit.

On another note, this month's blog train is March of the Animals. I hope to get something together for this as well. I hope I'm not too ambitious as the Designer Darling Contest has been taking up a lot of my free time.

Have you joined my facebook page? Here

Someone requested that I make last weeks files available as ZIP files because they can't use RAR. Here you go, hun!

Another peek at that kit.

Almost done

Well, I'm almost done! ..... Way back on Christmas Eve I made a post where I said that I will have more exciting news for you around January 17th. As you know, I'm an active member of the STS forum. This month they started their search for Designer Darlings and I applied. For the next six weeks the contestants will be designing kits using the criteria that was set up each week. Week 1 ends tomorrow night. I will be posting the kit before than (maybe I should be finishing that now instead of doing this) LOL. Duh! Let me go. I'll post again tomorrow!
Stay tuned!

Boys kit and it's very versatile

Have you seen Little Boy in Corduroy by Scrapteam2008? It is a beautiful "boy" kit with greens, reds, browns and tans. It has 12 papers, 56 elements and an upper case alpha. There are enough ribbons, bows and flowers that it could easily be used for girly layouts as well. Take a look-see. Image is linked to the store at STS.

Under My Tree kit and a freebie

Hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season! I'm back with some good news! I accepted the position as CT for Ashlee from Designs by Ashlee.

She recently released a new kit called Under My Tree. It is great to scrap all those pictures you took for the Christmas holiday. It has muted greens and reds. My favorite elements are the boy and girl in PJ's and the realistic looking presents. I've made two layouts using the kit.

As a treat for my readers I made two little freebies to go along with this kit. One is the cluster I made for one of the pages. The other is a little doodad I made. My readers benefit. I was experimenting with weaving using some of the elements from Ashlee's kit. You could put it on top of a circle of a color of your choice and you made yourself an ornament.

Well without further ado. Here is the kit which is linked to Ashlee's store.

Here are the two layouts I made.

Now on to the freebie...
