SongBird Avenue October Kit

I've been neglectful of Songbird Avenue and am feeling a little guilty...They always have such beautiful kits and provide needed funds to MANY different charities...this month is no exception.

Here is a preview of Peachy Keen:

Isn't it pretty? Love the color combo here. Anyway...if you click the photo it will take you straight to the website where you can purchase this great kit. And this month the talents of Pamela Gibson of Polka Dot Potato join forces with Jan Crowley to make this beautiful kit. Money raised through this kit (minus paypal fees) go to help Animal Haven, a no-kill shelter. You can read all about it here.

As always, the kit is $8.00, full of fun papers and elements...and the best part is that you'll be helping some helpless animals in turn.


Fall Splendor Link Problems....


So sorry for all the issues that some of you have experienced with the link for my portion of the Fall Splendor Collaboration. I've fixed the link and you can begin downloading again.

THANKS for letting me know...on 4 shared it does not indicate that there is an issue so I had to upload the entire kit again to get a new link. You can get it
here or scroll down to the preview and hit that download link.

Thanks for your patience and support!!!!

So, we close on our house Tuesday (Aug. 12)...we are very excited and not at all prepared. Imagine that! I haven't packed one box, it all seems so unreal...I guess I'll be spending the next few days going through our junk and boxing things up. I plan on taking a break on Saturday 'cause it's my 31st (YIKES) birthday and I want to be able to go out to dinner and spend some time with family. So, I may not post for a few days. I do have a new paper pack I'm finishing up and will post that once I get a minute to finish it and load it on 4 Shared.

Have a great day!

Gorgeous Collection: Oranges

Hi All!

It's been a busy week. I finished up with summer school, did interviews for paraprofessional positions (3 positions...19 interviews...phew) in my classroom, had to find a new loan for the house (don't get me started), and began a second round of fertility meds (this last round was unsuccessful...I'm still hopeful).

So, sorry to keep you waiting, but here is the Orange papers for the Gorgeous Collection. I hope you like them.

Fertility Update...

I just got back from my Reproductive Endocrinologist and was informed that I have a nice sized follicle (where the egg is released) on the Left side (actually 2, but probably only the largest will release)! Perfect, that is the side with a tube so my chances for getting pregnant this cycle are...get this...NORMAL! WOW! I have to give myself a trigger shot tonight to encourage the follicle to release it's egg...which I'm very nervous about...I don't like needles. Then it's business as usual and then wait to see what happens.

Anyway, I just wanted to share that I was pretty excited about what I found out at the Dr.

I learned something new today in the wonderful world of digiscrapping...there's this thing called RAKs (Random Acts of Kindness) where digital scrappers take pictures from fellow digiscrapping pals and create a LO for them. SOOOO...I decided to do one for my friend Jeanne over at Creative Bliss. I hope she likes it...I snagged a photo of her cute daughter Jessica from her blog...hope she doesn't mind :)

Here it is -Credits:
CGammon - "Sweet Pea" @ Scrap Artist
AAbney - "Color Wonderful" @ Scrap Artist
MLima - "FrancheCompte" @ Little Dreamer Designs
EMerrit - "Doodle Trims" @ Little Dreamer Designs
MColeman - "Girl Power" @ Little Dreamer Designs

There you have it! Hope you like it Jeanne!


Summer Sunset

Okay...I've finished the papers for this kit and added in a little sneak peak of what you might find in the elements! :) I absolutely LOVE the colors in this kit...I hope you like them as much as I do! I had a lot of fun creating the papers in this kit and I hope you have as much fun using them to scrap your memories!

If you like the papers and use them in a layout I really WANT to see them...please post a link to your blog or send me an email.

As always, any comments or suggestions are welcome and will help me become a better designer!

Sweet Boy

Here is my latest LO...I had lots of fun doing this and actually scraplifted from July Guest Creative Goddess "Ivana" at Scrap is her LO
And my take (with my little nephew...he's quit the little chubbers...super cute):

(Click for Credits)

I've recovered from my surgery and my right tube was completely removed. I started on Clomid (this encourages more eggs to mature) and have been MISERABLE on them. LOADS of Hot Flashes, Nausea, Headaches, Heartburn, and Fuzziness. YUCK! One more day of pills and we'll see if it works. Finger crossed!!!!!

Joe and I also found a house and are praying things work out so that we can close on August 8...the day before my 31st birthday...NICE BIG PRESENT!!! I don't have a picture to post right now but it's a cute, old house that is perfect for us to start out in. It will need some work, but that's okay 'cause we want to make it OUR home...

Busy Week Ahead........

This week is going to be very busy....Joe and I will be looking for a house and hoping to find something we can't live without! Then on Thursday I head to the hospital for surgery to repair/remove my right fallopian tube. I'm a little nervous...but looking for a house has kept my mind a little removed from what is happening. The surgery shouldn't last more then an hour and I should be able to come home that night...Fingers crossed that all goes well and this is an answer to my prayers of starting a family. While I am on the mend I hope to find a position that is comfortable AND allows me to do some digi's been a while since I've had a freebie.

Anyway...Hope you all have a great week and I'll see you after my surgery...hopefully with news of success and a new home!

SongBird Avenue Scraplift - Baby Kayden

So, I've used the Songbird Avenue May 2008 Collaboration Kit - "Take Flight" (read more about in previous post) to scrap a picture of my adorable nephew Kayden. I took inspiration from Gerarda Van Markerk's LO

Here is my take on her LO...


Tuesday, May 13, 2008


Take a look at this gorgeous kit from Songbird Avenue:

STUNNING!!!! All the proceeds go help raise awareness for breast cancer as well as funding for research through the Susan G. Koman Foundation.

Pick it's only $8.00...a great cause that impacts MILLIONS of people.
