It's the Christmas season!

A few weeks ago, a friend and I took our kids to North Pole City, which is a Christmas store here in town.  We ran across some Elves on the Shelves, and for once, I was actually tempted to buy one.  But I was low on cash, so I passed.  But I know a lot of friends who've indulged in this little holiday favorite!
If you have a little holiday helper, or if you just love Christmas kits the way I do, you will want to check out My Shelf Elf, new from North Meets South Studios!

I used it to scrap a photo of Rachel from a few years ago, and I plan on using it again and again this holiday season...I love the colors!

Until next time, happy scrapping!

As promised...

I'm back again, with a look at Trixie's new collection for the Grab-a-Byte sale at SBB.  Check out Sweetened with Gratitude!

During the sale, each portion of the collection will be $1.00.  Here are the sale pieces:

I used everything except the glitter papers to create my's about Rachel opening up her birthday gifts.  She woke up, and was still pretty sleepy.  I told her she had to wait to open her gifts from us, but her NiNi had some things for her to open.  After opening up clothes...and books...and more clothes, she was looking slightly depressed.  Make that really unhappy.  LOL.  She then opened up a fashion designer activity set, and she was really excited about it (although she still looks half-asleep in the photo)...and then she said, "Thank you for THIS, NiNi."  We all had a good laugh about it.  And she actually did like the clothes that she just wasn't exciting to open up!

With that, I'm off for awhile...we have another VERY busy week ahead, and I'm hoping I'll find a few minutes to scrap, or read, or both.  Until next time, have a blessed week, and happy scrapping!

It's Templatetopia time again!

You guys know that I love me some templates...and I also love a good bargain.  Okay, let's be honest...I'm cheap.  I have expensive taste, but very little money, so frugal is the way I have to be.  And one of the best bargains in digi-land is the monthly Templatetopia from North meets South Studios.  Seriously, 16 templates for $3.99 is hard to beat.  Check out this month's offering:

This month's offering includes my favorite type of template...big photo templates!  I've already used two of them, and let me show you what I came up with...

First off, I used one of the new Large and In Charge Vol. 3 templates from Templatetopia, as well as One Haunted Evening (also by North meets South Studios) to scrap these photos of Rachel on her first ever house-to-house trick-or-treat adventure.

And next, I used another of the Large and In Charge Vol. 3 templates, along with Trixie's NEW collection for this month's GGI sale.  This new collection is called You Matter, and it's a beautiful and uplifting kit.
Before I show you my layout, let me show you the kit.  It's currently on sale at Gotta Pixel for $1.00 per pack.

For my layout, I used everything but the glitter papers.

I'll be back soon with a peek at Trixie's new GAB collection!
