Can U Hear Me Now, Beary Sweet?

Such fun products I got to work with for my ScrapDish layouts this month! :)

First up is one with one of my photos from the 24th, along with a couple more taken at the same time. I loved the gorgeous textures and colors of these papers, and the swirls, hearts and tags are just so cute! I could see all of these as being go-to products that I could use in all kinds of layouts.

Journaling: Kaylee has such a fun imagination. One day when she got off the school bus, she claimed she couldn’t hear me because she was listening to music on the paper iPod she had drawn. Today she paced around the family room having an extensive conversation on her “phone”. When we asked her who she was talking to, there was a mischievous gleam in her eye as she answered with an emphatic “none of your business” and went back to ignoring us in favor of whoever was on the other end of the imaginary line. Oh, yeah. Really looking forward to those teenage years. LOL [captured on 3/24/10]

Next is one with a shot from a movie night last month (the opposite view from the one I chose to share on my P365 blog). :) Kaylee was curled up next to me with her freshly washed Doodle Bear to watch the movie (Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs). I especially loved this gorgeous damask paper from the kit, and there was a great mix of pretty and whimsical elements to choose from. :)

Chalk Alphas!

I have a fun set of Chalk Alphas to show you today!  I've reworked one that was originally included in the "ScrapDish Basics Collection" (now retired). I've always liked it and have used the original version several times myself, so I thought it could do with a fresh face and re-release on its own. :)

There are four variations, in  different color combinations (and also a brush file), available individually or as a bundle... and they're on SALE now at 50% off!! (Images linked to the store.)

Thanks for looking! :)

Layouts: White World, Just Be

Just sharing my ScrapDish layouts for February before March gets away from me! LOL

First up is a 2-pager using a couple of scenery shots from our big snow. The kit and template are both by Three Hearts Digital Designs. They were just calling out for something serene and elegant. :) The full spread…

and a closer look…

Journaling: The view from our front door. The extreme snowfall of February 11-12, 2010 goes down as THE snowiest 24-hour period in the history DFW weather records, according to the National Weather Service (NWS). An amazing 12.5" was measured, 11.2" of which fell on the 11th. This also sets the new one calendar day record. The tally also pushes the winter of 2009-2010 into second place, just behind 1977-78 for all time snowiest, and second snowiest February (also behind 1978). - stats quoted from the Dallas Examiner

And one with a sweet shot of Kaylee from a year ago. :) The kit is by Melissa Daniel, and it also has a really great turquoise that I didn’t use for this layout. So many fun color combination possibilities! :)
