Blog Challenge, FREE Template and More!

Brandy Designs at has a kit out called Serenity . . . along with a most clever grab bag (that I had to grab - get it, you won't be disappointed!) and a FREE template to go with her blog challenge here!

So, I snagged the template and used Serenity to make this layout about Jamie . . . using *yes* my favorite photos of him!

Oh yeah . . . and I finished my final layout for the contest . . . you know, where the winner gets a Bamboo Tablet! The challenge was to create a layout answering Who Am I?

Here is the one I submitted . . .

Crossing my fingers until the announcement on Sunday! The other two layouts were really amazing . . .

Guess what?

I made it to the final round (Round 4) of the Scrap Your Life Contest! So I still have a chance to win the Bamboo Tablet (see this post to learn more) !!

This week's prompt is to create a layout with photos and journaling that answers Who I Am. Sounds easy maybe, but that's a GIANT BLANK CANVAS to me . . . which is daunting. I actually finished it last night, but decided to wait a day or two and revisit it to see if I'm still happy with it . . .

In other exciting news, I've been chosen for the Creative Team . . . wow, what an honor! I've already introduced you to Cara of Sweet Tomato Designs, she's exclusive at PDP and I just love all their designers so I gave it a shot!
Incidentally, TODAY is Cara's birthday and she's giving away a gorgeous birthday kit to newsletter subscribers . . . so go sign up!

Here's what I've been playing with this week by Dysfunctional Designs at . . . Faded Winter. It is so wonderfully designed, rich with texture that a simple layout is very powerful. Featuring Reece . . . during our first "big storm" last month . . .

Over a, I had a chance to create a layout with this gorgeous yellow kit appropriately titled Yellow Inspiration, a collab between BubbleScrap Designs and Dogs Day Designs.
