LOTD Wednesday!

Hey, hey, hey all you fans and followers of A+ Designs. Jan here picking my first LOTD for the blog! I’m so excited! I’m part of Mel’s CT but even more than that I am a HUGE fan of her designs! She never ceases to amaze me with each and every kit she puts out! What amazing creativity! I also love seeing how everyone uses her wonderful designs and I had a great time browsing A+ Designs Gallery at Scrapbook Bytes! I’d love to see more and more of them, so if you have created any pages with her designs please head over and upload them to her gallery! Maybe your layout will be featured here in the future!!

Today, I’m choosing a couple of layouts by LauraMarie that just blew me away!! They are both absolutely gorgeous!!

The first is titled sweet and it is indeed!! For this layout she used Sweet Eve and it is sooo beautifully done!!

And the next is using Full of Grace...beautiful shadow work and such an adorable photo :)

I'd like to share with you some info about my latest kit, Full of Grace. This kit was inspired by my energetic three year old, Gracelyn. She is vibrant, sassy, and little Miss Know-It-All! She is the life of the party and never stops talking!

Full of Grace is one of my favorite kits. It is so full of color, sparkles, and it just speaks elegance! If you haven't had a chance to peak at it here it is. Get it HERE.

And I just LOVE the worn papers pack that you get if you purchase the full collection or you can purchase them individually. They truly look like real, worn, and wrinkled papers.

Mel here enjoying a SNOW day! WOOHOO! That's the best thing about being a teacher - SNOW DAYS! Although my kids are bouncing off the walls. Gracie, my soon to be 4 year old, wants to go out and play in the snow. Um, it's 11 degrees outside. LOL Sydney, my just turned two year old, is running through the house bouncing as she goes. Needless to say, we need some entertainment. LOL

I have added a few things to my Scrapbook-bytes store. First you can find Romance Me on sale now. This is truly one of my favorite kits. It just has such an elegant feel to it.

Check out these fun templates. I just love the Templistic Collection!

Happy Monday and a Freebie

Happy New Year to everyone. Hope you all had a nice holiday - it is back to reality now! For me that reality consists of taxes, taxes and more taxes. In that mode I am getting my stuff done early and trying to be organized. I even set some goals (I am calling them goals instead of resolutions but the thought is the same) and downloaded a really cool scrapping logbook to keep track of my day to day stuff. Hopefully all these things will add up to a great year.

This week I made a freebie using Sweet Dreams. I love the colors in this kit – the plum and the gray are fabulous together. I also just love the moon and the alpha. Check it out:

Sweet Dreams

I also used one of the templates in Templistic: Photo Show Off


Here is my layout – isn’t the plum fantastic with the gray? I also love the blue in the mix!
