Okay, my friend took this totally cute shot of us in front of a big Christmas tree but there were people everywhere and there was no way to get a clean shot. This guy was walking by and looks like he's part of the family or something! So I reworked things and now have a great picture! I am so excited. I just love photoshop!
My first template ever! Please leave me some love and send me a link if you create something with it! Download here.
It's from this layout:
This is a charity kit available on Plain Digital Wrapper's website and the story of Megan and Baby Crew. It's a gorgeous kit and I've already seen some wonderful layouts with it plus it's for a great cause!
We all go through rough patches in our lives. And as we go through these hardships, we lean on each other and our faith to comfort us. Tragedy has recently befallen one of our own. Megan, the master behind the templates of Racketty Scrappety was, until recently pregnant with her third and fourth children. Nearly three weeks ago, 28 weeks pregnant, her water broke and had an emergency c-section to deliver her babies. Both of which were born without heartbeats. While the doctors were able to resuscitate one of her sons, the other, Baby Dex, didn't make it.
There were a number of complications, none of which caused any of the others. As Megan learned after the fact, her water breaking was the best thing that could have happened and was what allowed Baby Crew to be born fast enough to save his life. Megan has been generous enough to allow us all to share this time with her. You can read more about this amazing Mother and Son duo at http://crewsjourney.blogspot.com
Crew, is currently in the NICU and riding the "roller coaster" that accompanies this. We, here at Plain Digital Wrapper along with a few other great designers have joined together to make this beautiful kit dedicated to Crew.
Included in this kit are over 50 papers, over 150 elements, 5 alphas, $10 worth gift certificates from various designers, over 50 of the templates from Racketty Scrappety herself, and a free gift with purchase! All proceeds will go towards Crew's mounting medical costs. It is called "For Unto Us..." and embodies the true spirit of Christmas.
A special thank you to Betsy Tuma, Athena of Studio Incognito, TammyKat Designs, Shawnery Mathis, Brandi White, Tracy King, Elain Bittencourt, Julie It Is, Clever Crow, Gypsy Couture, Tammy Moore, Lisa Hanks of Southern Creek Designs, Kristin Aagard, Amy Sumrall and Courtney Wilson of Skittles and Scraps for all of your help in putting this kit together for Megan, Crew and their family.
I've been so busy scrapping, I haven't taken the time to post here! I'm doing a guest CT spot at Plain Digital Wrapper as well as my ongoing ones at Get Digi With It and Been There Scrapped That. Here's what I've been up to lately!
I've done lots of layouts with Sweet Digi Scraps. Liz just seems to make kits just for me. I absolutely love everything she puts out!
This is her kit Too Cute to Spook that she just let me work with even though it's not at Been There Scrapped That(thanks, Liz!)
I also did this pumpkin layout with Sweet Digi Scraps At First Sight. The flowers and brads are from Playdate by Sweet Digi Scraps.
For my guest spot for Plain Digital Wrapper, I worked with With the Band by Athena. This was totally different from what I normally would work with but I knew it would be perfect for the pics of Kate with the guitar my husband's dad made for him which eventually get passed on to her. The pink paper is from Butterfly Shimmer by Web Designz by Kristi.
Last but not least, I did a template challeng at pickleberry pop and came up with this layout using Mandy Mystique's Frostee. I love this kit so much I had to think of something to do with it since we don't get snow here!
I have decided to compete to be on the CT at Scrap Orchard. Here are my first two layouts. I'm really excited about the bugs on the second layout. I made them dancing bugs from the bugs, leaves and flowers in the kit! :-)
I just love this kit at GDWI. It has so many cute elements and tons of papers. I had fun doing the template challenge with it. The template was made by amyu from a layout from my close friend, Aimee(scraftygirl). Here's the kit and the layout!
Okay, I totally have to show this off because I am sooo excited how it turned out! I made Kate a Halloween Treat bag. I wanted to make her one so she could keep it through the years and have something made with love by me. My friend, Michelle(love you!) ran the black fabric on her embroidery machine to get the awesome Kate on it. Then I sewed the bag, including the handles which I'm quite proud of! lol
I was so excited to be invited by Lyndie and Nikki to be on the CT for Gone Scrappin. Not only are Lyndie's designs adorable but Nikki's got some great templates including some brag book ones which I need to work on for Christmas presents! Here's my first two using Template Pack #5 by Nikki and One Loveby Lyndie. Here's the kit and the layout!
I am in love with this new kit by Alma's ScrapHabit Designs called Brighter Tomorrows. It's so adorable and filled with all the bright colors and a nice brown that I love! Here's the kit and the layout I did with it. Go check it out! The alpha is a freebie by Greedz Graphics and the staple is by Teresa Hernandez.
I just downloaded >"These Moments" by Liz at Been There Scrapped That and had so much fun playing with it this afternoon. I did page one of the layout using Colie's template from the September template challenge and scraplifted gigichet for the Layout Snatch Up challenge both at Been There Scrapped That.
