I have been waiting (impatiently) all month for the new kit from Digi-Designs by Nicole to be released – and it’s finally here!! I knew a bit of what it looked like since she decorated her blog with it back in December - and it was so worth the wait! Check out the preview:
I just love the colors and the papers are to die for! All the heart elements rock too.
I made three layouts so far but there will, at the very least, be one more since one of them is part of a two page spread in my oldest son’s first year book.
I did this one for a Speed Scrap last night – I love Speed Scraps. If you haven’t tried one, don’t be afraid. I was pretty stressed out when I did my first thinking that I had to have the layout done by the end of the hour but you actually get another hour on top of that to finish. Phew – that is do-able. And you usually get a prize! These are pictures from when J1 met J2 for the first time. I was a bit nervous since I had heard and read so many things about children being jealous of their siblings but to this day, J1 loves and takes care of his brother. Don’t get me wrong, he is not a saint! They squabble and push but for the most part, he is a great big brother which just makes me so happy!
This one was for the recipe challenge over at Stuff to Scrap – and boy was it hard this month. A recipe challenge layout must include the specified papers, photos and elements and this month Heidi of Scraps ‘n Pieces decided to torture us with many, many requirements! It is good to scrap outside your comfort zone though and you should see the results!
I did this layout for my J1’s first year book. He is four now and one of my 2010 goals was to finish a first year book for both boys. I think J2 (baby above) looks so much like J1 as a baby (below) – don’t you? There are some differences – eye color. J1 has my eyes (brown) and J2 the mister’s eyes (blue) and for some reason, J2 has the blondest hair! I guess he takes after my sister – who is mostly naturally blonde.
Thanks for reading and get ready for the awesome Stuff to Scrap February Blog Train coming soon! I’ll have a quick page made with Little Red Scraps’ portion of the blog train.
