A Whimsy's Freebie

Can you believe it's almost June?? I have almost no summer plans, I want to get more scrapping in and maybe a small vacay or get away. Do you have big plans for the summer? Maybe a trip, or a Stay-cation? 

I will be working in the garden, I am getting a late start, I just bought my plants today!  

Check out the new goodies available from A+ Designs:

I was cruising the gallery tonight and there are some amazing layouts featuring this fantastic kit.

I played with this beautiful Duo-Licious kit:

For Whimsy Sake

I made a Paper Stack and a cluster, so I thought I'd give you the stack today:

Download Expired

I left some space to add your own journaling, I was thinking maybe a file folder-like tab along the top. 

I'm trying a new download option- leave a note if it works (or doesn't)

She's All That Quickpage Freebie

Hi all,

Recently I bought a new sandal for my daughter and she simply fell in love with it. She refused to wear other sandals/shoes if she sees it. I find it quite funny and wanted to scrap about it, of course. I wanted to use a kit that has the color of the sandal and rummage through my stash. The kit I found was A+ Designs' She's All That. So I made my layout and somehow also created a quickpage freebie with it. So take a look at this gorgeous kit and the sandal layout I made, and don't forget to pick up the freebie.

Happy Memorial Day Weekend!

[... well, almost LOL!]

Okay, so last week has past and next week will be the start of a new month again. In our part of the world [I'm on the other side of the globe], we're on our summer season and when June arrives, it means everything and everybody needs to be back at school... Where did all those days go?

Oh well, anyhow, it's Memorial Day Weekend [on your part of the world, that is ;)]! I'm pretty sure lots of you have probably planned for this a long time -- going for a long trip maybe? Spend some time at the beach? Wherever you guys will be, we, [in Mel's creative team] hope and wish you all have a fun and wonderful weekend with your loved ones.

Today, I was supposed to share a freebie for all to enjoy. Unfortunately, I haven't had the time recently to make one. But, I do have some of Mel's kits to show off, perfect for those Memorial Day photos of you and your family.

These kits are so versatile that you can use them in almost any kind of layout. So, here they are..

If you're looking for some bluish hues, the following are perfect:

... with a little bit of country feel:

Something with a lot of pastel hues for your cute little ones:

And some orange hues too:

This one would somehow look good if you're spending time at the beach:

Need I say more? Mel creates such perfect kits, doesn't she? They're all gorgeous and unique. And, again, what's so good about them is they can be very versatile and can be used in any layout you have.

So, what are you waiting for? Head on to her store at GottaPixel here or directly click on the preview images above to be directed to the item pages so you can then start scrapping all those new photos you have.

Oh, before I forget, congratulations to shadowsmom at GottaPixel for having one of her layouts chosen for the day... Great piece you have shadowsmom! :)

She used Mel's If Only kit also available at GottaPixel.

Have fun! And, happy Memorial Day Weekend once again!

'Til next time.
