ScrapMatters CT Call

Hi there just popping in to let you know about the ScrapMatters CT cal!!! That's you heard me ScrapMatters is having a CT call so you need to go apply right not. Before I started designing for ScrapMatters I started out as a CT member...and I LOVED IT....I'm sure you will's more info...

I also managed to find some time to scrap a few LO's. Take a look...

For this LO I used a super cool kit called Thoroughly Amused by Haynay Designs and Plum Dumpling Designs. The template is Strips and Pieces by Sahlin Studio. You can find both of these items at ScrapMatters.

And for this one I used All American Superhero and Super Villains by Plum Dumpling Designs and a template called Circles of Love by Denise Beatty Originals.

Ok well that's all for now...I'm off to take my son to the Dentist. Have a great day!

You should have arrived here from stop #18 Shalin Studio Blog. As some of you may know I am the youngest of seven children and one of my most favorite memories from when I was a child was our family picnics in the park!!! My parents were big on taking us to the park. It seemed like every weekend we would pack up our picnic basket and head to one of our neighborhood parks and play for hours!!! We did this for as long as I can remember. Now that I have a family of my own...we do spend a lot of time at the park...but for some reason I have yet to pack a picnic basket and head to the park. Sometimes we may grab some McDonalds and eat it in the park...but it just doesn't seem the same. I am however going to make a effort real soon here to plan a little picnic (with homemade sandwiches and all). That way my son will be able to experience a real picnic!

Ok so here is your freebie....a It's a 12x12 QP made with the ScrapMatters Collab Kit called "A Perfect Picnic" that you get free with a $15.00 purchase....take a look.

New Release and It's a Party!!!

Ok Friday is finally here...which means it's time to release my BRAND NEW kit that I've been dying to show you and if you read all of the way through to the end of this post you'll find a little coordinating freebie....are you ready....wait for it.....wait for it is...It's called "Lil' Mr. Fix-it"...

This kit is totally inspired by my 5 year old son....who is my very own little Mr. Fix-it. He discovered his daddy's tools at the age of 3 and I remember one time we had remodeled our bathroom and all my husband had left to do was to put the flush handle back on the toilet. Well days went by and it still wasn't done. My son went in my bathroom and decided that he was gonna take it upon himself to put it back on. I just thought to myself how cute but really didn't think that he would actually be able to put it on there all by himself. I left him there...and then came back a few minutes later and he was still working on it. I thought...well at least this will keep him busy for a few minutes. He seemed determined. I left him alone for a few more minutes and then he came into the kitchen where I was at and said, "I fixed it!" I looked at him and said, "you did??? Good for you!!!" But I really didn't think he actually was able to put the handle back on the toilet...I was just playing along. He insisted that I go take a I did....and to my SURPRISE I looked at the toilet and the handle was on there!!! It was on there backwards....but it was on there nice and tight!! I couldn't believe it!! And now it's almost three years later and it's still on there backwards...we never fixed it. LOL! So now instead of pushing down to flush we push it up to flush. LOL!!! But ever since then he's had a knack for fixing things around the house. So he is my "lil Mr. Fix-it and was the inspiration behind my new kit! I'm sure there are lots of you out there too that have your very own little Mr. or Miss Fix-it...if so this kit is for you!!! I hope you enjoy it!!!

And take a look at "Lil Mr. Fix-it" in action. The Fabulous ScrapMatters CT has been working with it...and this is what they came up with....
