The Holiday Season is Here!

Hi, all! Sherry here, again. In my last post, I challenged you to try a speed scrap - specifically the one Mel and Miss Tiina host at Sugarhill Co., which had been scheduled for that next Saturday. Unfortunately, things happened that prevented the speed scrap from taking place. I believe they'll be trying again this upcoming Saturday, the 4th. If they do it, I'll be there, and I hope you'll try to be there, as well. If you've never done a speed scrap, they truly are challenging, but so worth what you'll learn from doing them.
I wanted to mention that there is a new kit at A+ Designs, called Winter Wonder. It's gorgeous! Grab this at Scrapbook-Bytes, Gotta Pixel, Scrappity Doo Dah, and Sugarhill Co.

You can see layouts from our wonderful CT on Kerry's blog post from 11/20.

I used this kit for a template challenge at Scrapbook-bytes. This is how it turned out:

I think this kit fit these photos beautifully!
If you plan on taking many pictures, over the upcoming holidays, and know you'll be doing several layouts, just a heads up - there are going to be some other holiday kits coming from A+ Designs in the next couple of weeks. Watch the blog for details. I've seen them, and they're WONDERFUL! If you do some fun things with Winter Wonder, or any of the other kits coming out, you know we want to see! Post some links in the comment section of this blog, so we can check out your creativity with Mel's products.

I feel like this post is a little short, but in addition to working on scrapbook challenges, life with a preschooler has its own challenges. Our wonderful daughter is finally (yes, way too late) having to give up her beloved pacifier. Not by choice, but by loss. So I'm a bit bleary-eyed, after day 2 behind us. She's doing great, though.
Next time I post, I hope to share what I do in the next speed scrap, and maybe some new challenges layouts. Again - try to do the speed scrap! Love to see you there, and see what you come up with! I know you'll do great.

Happy Thanksgiving-Another Freebie

I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving and if you don't celebrate this particular holiday, I hope you are having a good weekend!

We have had a busy day, starting at 3:30 am. I still managed to sneak a few minutes to browse at my favorite stores, and I hope you saw some of the fantastic deals and steals available in our wonderful Digi-world.

Today I made a QP from Forever Loved. I kept it pretty simple, feel free to add a few other elements from the kit if that fits your style.

Layout of the Week

Hi all! I hope those of you in the States are ready for Thanksgiving tomorrow. Four years ago, my husband and I were designated to make the turkey. It turned out so well that we've been given the job permanently. So, today is going to be a day full of preparation and making pies for me.

But first, I need to show love to those ladies who work so hard to create beautiful layouts.
The first layout uses the kit, Nothing But Wonderful. Image is linked to the store :)

 I adore the picture in the three frames. The shadowing is nicely done. I also love the paint strip across the middle of the page, drawing attention to that sweet face. Don't forget to leave MaLinna some love by clicking on her layout!

The next layout uses Mel's newest kit called Winter Wonder. Full of fun, vibrant colors and glittery elements (who doesn't love glitter?) this kit is a must have for your holiday layouts.

wtunision did an amazing job on overlaying the picture. I love the pictures in the stars. The three pictures along the bottom just complete a beautiful layout. Click on her layout to leave her some love.

Enjoy your Thanksgiving and your weekend (especially those who brave Black Friday shopping!)

New Freebie for You

I have been busy this week scrapping several pages, some scraplifts and other pages that may become QP later.

For this weeks QP, I went back to one of my favorite kits, Elegance Eve.

Available at

I love how textured and rich the papers are, they make creating pages effortless!

Here is my page:

I removed my journaling and made openings for you to add your photos. Here is your Quick Page:
