DSDI Mystery Collab Blog Hop

Happy October and welcome to the end of the DSDI Mystery Collab Blog Hop. Every month the designers do a collaboration kit and it usually has a specific theme. This month they decided to do a mystery one where all the parts have the same color scheme but each designer did whatever they wanted. And it turned out just awesome! There are so many lovely papers and elements and they actually go together beautifully. You must pick up this kit - click the image to head to the store to buy it. You'll need it to take full advantage of all our freebies!

There is an alpha in the kit but I made another one - capitals only.

And since it is a new month, we have a whole new set of challenges up - come join in the fun and earn points towards a store gift certificate. If you participate in our It's a Fad challenge, you can even get a discount on the Mystery Collab!

September DSDI Template Challenge

It is already September – so hard to believe. And my oldest son starts 3 day a week preschool today. I’m not sure how I’m going to deal with that – he’ll be fine but maybe not me. Just a precursor to Kindergarten though so maybe this baby step is a good way to go. Anyway, on to the challenge. I chose another paper layout for the challenge. I was inspired to pick this one by some “big picture” templates I saw recently. Here is my original layout – it was a matching two pager with the ultrasound as one side and journaling about when we found out I was pregnant and how we told people. Sorry the picture is so random but I took individual pictures of each side and the ultrasound side is totally blurry. I figured you could get the gist of it from this one.

Here’s the layout I did – I used Guy Time by JanetB Designs. This is the mister and J2 – he was almost two weeks old here.
