The kit is super cheap at 6.95$ each and you will be able to complete 2 page / and have left overs!

Here are my pages --

Layouts Layouts

Imagine... i had these layouts sitting on my scrap table since .. um... November 18th. Yup it's been almost 2 weeks that these poor pages were just sitting there patiently waiting to be uploaded and commented on ;-)

This first page is called Soft Kitty.. i got inspiration from the TV sitcom the Big Bang Theory! I love that show and if you know the song Soft Kitty... this is my journaling ;-)

Soft kitty, warm kitty, little ball of fur. Happy kitty, sleepy kitty, purr, purr, purr
paper used are from the Bella Blvd Collection Tail Waggers & Cat Naps

This second page is my niece, she's growing up so fast.. my goodness almost 5 years old already.
She's precious and has a great outlook on life - hopefully she can keep it that way!
Papers used are Jillibean Soup

This third one is my nephew.. He's gonna be a little heart breaker with those baby blue eyes.. Watch Out !!!
The papers used for this layout were the Rocket Age Collection from October Afternoon.

I hope all is well with you! I am currently off work for a few weeks ... since the shingles, and a few other health issues Doc has requested i stay home and rest for a few weeks... nice. Although I think i'm sleeping too much.. those afternoon naps are really too nice.

I sometimes have to ask Siri to wake me up!
She's awesome ;-)

Thanks so much for letting me share! Have a fabulous Wednesday Night ;-)

Instagram | Pics

About a month or so ago hubby suprised me with a new iPhone 4S and wowzers I'm loving it!
I have a few favorite APPS but INSTAGRAM is for sure one of my favorites. I've spent an hour or two ( hee or more! ) just browsing pics and yes taking a few pictures myself.

I love just being able to snap a picture of something/ or someone and voila! I find myself taking pictures of daily items or just stuff that i would never think of with a regular DSL Camera.

Here are a few ....
The Inside of My Car ;-)
My Daily Cup of Coffee -
Enjoying 1/2 Coffee & 1/2 Hot Chocolate Lately

Eddie just taking an afternoon nap
My favorite " treat " beverage!
My telephone at the office ---
A wonderful visit at our neighborhood medical clinic
time for antibiotics! It's usually a 5-10 min visit...
no wait times!
The girls at our last scrapbooking crop
Marielle and Chantal

If you're on instagram come find me!
I'd love to follow your uploaded pics ;-)

Kissie Face

Finally had the opportunity to take a pic to post this recent layout. It's a picture of my niece being silly and making faces. This one is called her Kissie Face! She's so funny and loves to laugh.

The papers used are from Jillibean Soup

I love this page! It took me about 3-4 hours to finish at our crop last weekend, probably because everything is matted on cardstock and then cut out. I just find that the matted papers just pop! Although time consuming, it does have a wonderful effect, something i am enjoying lately.

I have the name of my PAGE Kit Winner! yup, thank you ladies for leaving me comments and I am sure ... SOPHIE will LOVE the 4hr 37 layout kit! Merci Sophie!
LCOM will ship this out to you shortly .. Enjoy!

That's today's inspiration ;-)
Thanks for peeking!

Blog Design Information

We all love blog hoping and blogging and we often forget that a blog reflects our personal style such as colors and a title. I have always loved changing my blog headers and colors based on my mood, for fun or even the season. I am not a professional and have no formal training in blog decorating but I really enjoy it and would love the opportunity to decorate your blog!

If you are interested in a decorated blog
please read below for more info!

To start your new blog makeover
(Blogger Only)

- View my Blog Design Gallery to see what you might like
- Select a digital kit that you love from the list of designers indicated below.
These designers allow me to use their digital elements to create unique blog banners / and backgrounds for you.
- If you are a scrap store or plan on selling items on your blog ( home business etc ) I will have to get permission from the designers for you. Some might have additional charges  for commercial use.. ie/ printing business cards, logos, stationary, etc..

( i purchase the kit for you and charge you before installation )
please note that some designers have additional license fees

List is subject to change at any time!
updated July 2013

Prior to Installation I send you a paypal invoice and then start creating your new blog banner!  I often put in about 2-4 hours on a blog so it is important that i get paid prior to creating. This is to confirm your purchase and my time involved.

I will create a banner blog for you and install it on your personal blog so you can view your  cghanges.  Once you confirm that you "LOVE" what I've created ... I finish the installation for you.

I will need access to your blog ( please go to Settings/ Permissions and add me as an author.. ) my email for blogger is once I accept, you would then add me as ADMIN so i can edit your html settings.

I charge 45$ plus your kit and any license fees..

My price includes -
Banner / Background /Post separator/ Signature & Installation.
__ badges are extra! __

A few Blog Samples that I've created

Don't you love summertime? the fresh air, the birds chirping, the cool evening breeze, ... oh my winter is fast approaching and I could really use a few more summer days.

I created this SUMMER page of my niece, the picture was taken last year and she's growing up so fast. She's such a joy, always happy and laughing away... this picture i had to ask her to smile for me and well this is what she gave me! Still sweet ;-)

It's sooooo awesome! I love the colors, the diecuts are just too cute, would you believe i got 2 sheets of diecuts and i plan on creating a mini album with the rest of the papers and journal tags.. That should be done in the next few days or weeks ;-) If you're interested in creating a mini album with me... i'll be posting pics of my finished project shortly. You can still get this collection at LCOM ... just CLICK HERE!
