New! Appabet!

I've got a new alpha set in my store today! "Appabet" is inspired by the app icons on all our favorite techno gadgets. This fun set of 7 alphas will add a pop of color to any layout. Each of the colors – red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple, and black – includes the full set of letters, numbers, symbols, punctuation, and international characters. The character positions within the "icon" vary randomly from color to color for even more mix-and-match fun.

I scrapped with it too! :)


Journaling: The kids and I took the afternoon to go check out Maize Days for the first time. There were tons of vendors set up in front of City Hall, and the karaoke contest was broadcast all over the grounds. Matthew and Kaylee had a great time playing in the "Kidz Zone". There were lots of free inflatables, including a bounce house, an obstacle course, a giant King Kong slide, and people-sized hamster balls, After all that playing in the sun, some delicious icees were the perfect way to cool off on this hot afternoon. 9-24-11

Layouts: Blessed Sunny Love

A little layout catch-up! First, after a nice long break, Misty Mareda is back with a wonderful new kit! I have two layouts using “On a Wire”.


My wonderful kids and dh. I am blessed. :)
On a Wire by Misty Mareda at MScraps


Journaling: Matthew and Kaylee have a pretty great relationship most of the time. Sure, they fight a bit sometimes, but even then you can tell they still really care about each other. Lately, there's been an issue with Matthew wanting to be the doting big brother and treat Kaylee like she's little, at the same time that she's starting to feel more grown up and not wanting to be put into that role. It leads to some strange conflicts. I can see Kaylee's side of it, but it seems odd to tell Matthew not to be so nice to his sister. 9/1/11

Over at Zig Zag Scrap the new Zig Zag Lines are up, and Studio 68 has five fun coordinating “Lazy Afternoon” products! I used two of them for this page using a favorite picture of Kaylee from this past spring. :)


Journaling: It's become a bit of a ritual this spring. You love these days when the weather lets you grab a few minutes at the park after school, before your brother gets home and the grind of homework begins. The park is usually deserted at this time of day, and after being cooped up all day with a bunch of other kids, just you and me and the sun and the wind and the swings is the perfect way to unwind and enjoy a little freedom. 3/21/11
