Good Morning!
I just wanted to let you know that there is a new kit available from  CatDesignz called "Rachel".  I love the colors in this kit, the purple and yellow are so great together and the basic design of this kit is a bit funky but also feminine with it's beautiful florals.  I just finished making up a little album for my 13 year old daughter's friend as a yearbook for her to remember the events of this big grade 7 year, so as you can see it is very versatile!

Here are a few layouts I have done with this great kit!

If you would like to enjoy the Rachel kit for your very own, pop on over to Catherine's My Memories store  and pick it up!

I have a gorgeous new kit to show you today!
It's a brand new one by CatDesignz called Birdhouse Blossom!  This kit is so beautiful, I fell in love with it the moment I saw it, I am sure you will too!  Here are a couple of pages I did up using the kit.  They feature my beautiful daughter on our Mother's Day walk along a parkway path where there is a bird sanctuary.  This kit fit my need perfectly.  I can see it used in so many scenarios, can't you?

I feel so lucky!  I got to play with a new kit from CatDesignz called "Celeste" created for my fellow CatDesignz Creative Team Member, Celeste who had a special blog hop for her birthday.  It is so beautiful with all of the papers and embellishments that are so feminine, I couldn't help but see my Mothers Day photos in with all the butterflies and flowers.  Here is what I created.
I also used other papers and embellishments from the kit to create a look that is quite different from the first.  It really goes to show how one kit can be so versatile and can be used to create so many different pages, yet all co-ordinate together because of the similar color ways and related shapes in the different elements.

Here I used a button from the kit in a repetitive pattern to replicate the pattern of the strawberries on the top of the cake.  This really ties the page together.
If you would like your very own "Celeste" kit to create your own beautiful memory pages visit Catherine's store on My Memories.  Just so you know, there are a couple of great co-ordinating kits to go with this called "Celeste Frames", "Celeste Gazebo", and "Celeste Wordart", all as equally beautiful!  Check it out at
That's all for now, Happy Scrappin!

Hello Everyone!  I hope you all had a joyeous and safe New Years.  We enjoyed the weekend with family who came in from out of town.  It was really nice to spend time with loved ones.  I really love the beginning of a New Year.  Everything feels fresh and new, like you can wipe the slate clean and just start over!  With that sentiment in mind I played with the new digital scrapbooking kit from  CatDesignz called New Year New Me.  This kit is huge!  So many papers and embellishments the ideas for the use of this kit are endless!  Definately one of my new favorites!  One of the pages I created with the kit is an inspirational page for myself and what I would like to achieve for this year.

I also did up a couple of pages from a morning of x-country skiing that myself and my daughter Brittany went on with a friend of mine last February.

That was so much fun (and such great exercise) I really can't wait to go again this year!

I guess that's all for now.  Once again, Happy New Year, and Happy Scrappin!

I was going through my Christmas photos, trying to come up with a way to scrap these pictures from a couple of Christmas's ago and really struggling because of all the pink in the pictures. How can I make this feel like Christmas?  My answer came to me when I saw the papers and elements called Weathered Floral
from CatDesignz.  This set is not Christmas themed at all, but I have made this into a page that has a Christmas feel to it with the use of the gold colored corner elements and the white rose just feels like a Christmas Rose to me.  It is simple and elegant.  I don't think you always have to use materials that are theme specific.  Do what inspires you, break the rules!  Enjoy what you do.

Happy Scrappin!

Christmas is only 10 days away!  I took a bit of a walk down memory lane and found some pictures we took a couple of years ago of my sweet little puppy Louie.  I think he is definately on Santa's Naughty List!
This layout was really quite simple.  I used just a background paper with an overlay for the edges and then added in my photo on a black background with a little frame for accent.(All a part of the Night Before Christmas Designer Kit-CatDesignz)  I also included a simple satin ribbon with a bow and then of course my favorite element, the thing that brings it all together, the Naughty or Nice WordArt from CatDesignz!

This one is a picture of my daughter and that I think about it, I am sure they are BOTH on Santa's Naughty list!  Again, this layout was also very simple, just a background and only one decorative element with some photo mats and then using the WordArt for most of the design. 

I love this beautiful new kit that Catherine has just completed, it is the perfect set for the season to really get you in the Christmas spirit!  I know you will enjoy it as much as I do!

Happy Scrappin!

One of the reasons I love to scrapbook is because it takes me back to great memories and lets me escape my day to day routine :) This page makes me feel like I am floating through the clouds!  I think the overlay that I have used (Simply Snow White Masks from CatDesignz) and the use of arrows moves your eye through the page, up, up, up, and away!
Happy Scrappin!
