20-12 x 12 300 dpi papers
12 decorated stamps
8 ribbons--4 plaid, 4 grosgrain
4 tinted decorated wood frames
4 embroidered trees
4 tag pockets
4 wooden photo corners
4 wooden photo prongs
1 embroidered holly
1 full alpha with upper, lower, and symbols
You can get it here
Also look for a coordinating freebie coming soon! (Just have to upload to ftp!)

I received another layout of the day at Digitals on November 22. It is a layout of my daughter Christina and her girl scout troop on their bridge from Brownies to Juniors. This was 3 years ago!
I used Imagination by Denise Liemert, at Digitals and PDP (green circles around Christina are from Secret Garden, also by Denise)

Here is a layout I did with "A Thankful Heart". Every year, my family heads to the mountains to take family photos. This year we went up Millcreek Canyon in Salt Lake City and took pictures at (and got kicked out of)Camp Tracey, the BSA camp! We got some incredible shots that you'll be seeing in my layouts for the next year!

I received layout of the day honors at Digitals on November 6th for a layout I did using Dana Frantz' incredible kit, "BoHo Dreams" (at Digitals). This kit really knocked my socks off! I just can't say enough about it! The very cool scalloped edge came from Christine Nash's Totally Templates (at ACOT, SOTB). The word art is by Sue Jones, also at Digitals. Fabulous designers all!

Yes, I am designing now and feeling quite overwhelmed! Originally, I was just going to be doing quick pages for the amazing designer, Dana Frantz. (see her store here: http://www.digitalscrapbookpages.com/digitals/index.php?manufacturers_id=101&main_page=index) Well, it turns out, in order to be set up as a designer at Digitals Scrapbook Pages, you have to submit papers and elements and once accepted, you have to put up a sampler. Well, that completely freaked me out! But I decided as long as I have to make stuff, I may as well make a full kit! So I did! It should be in the store in the next day or two. Until then, I have some templates up for sale. I figured, if I'm going to sell, I may as well sell! I'm going to go back to some of my favorite layouts and make templates out of them.
I have a couple of ideas in the works for upcoming projects. One will be a baby kit, inspired by Emily's bedroom. I think I'll do a Christmas kit, but having a hard time being inspired right now! I also want to do a themed baby book--ready made quick pages documenting baby's milestones.
In the meantime, you can see my store at Digitals here: http://www.digitalscrapbookpages.com/digitals/index.php?manufacturers_id=132&main_page=index

I received another layout of the day honor, this one from Scrap Outside the Box. It seems they have a group called the "Atta Girls" who choose a layout each day to honor. Mine was chosen on November 3, 2006. The layout is called "Daydream Believer" and uses Christine Nash's beautiful kit, "Daydream Believer" and her basic vanilla stitching.

My latest layout of the day came from Gotta Pixel on October 7, 2006. It is a layout of Christina and I last fall when we took family pictures up Emigration Canyon. I love this one. It uses a kit by Denise Liemert that is just beautiful.
“Mom and Christina Fall 2005” (another creative title, don’t you think?)

The next layout of the day was a huge honor. There is a group called “The Kudos Group” who pick layouts from all over the web to be their layout of the day. I was chosen on September 27, 2006 for my layout “Jesus Loves Me” again featuring my darling Emily!

My fourth layout of the Day came on September 24, 2006, again over at Digitals. This was another “All About Me” layout that I made using a shadow box. I just put together a little shadow box with some items that represent me. A lot of it has to do with my marriage and husband: 20 years (how long we've been married), US, magnolias are my favorite flower, i love baubles and bright shiny objects and i try to live by the sayings "be the change" "be strong" "Seize the moment" "Enjoy". I had fun with it and loved the kit I used by Dana Frantz called “Flea Market”! It is funky fun!
This one is called “All About Me Shadow Box” (original name, I know!)
All items from Flea Market by Dana Frantz (available at Digitals) except
stitching from simply stitching little bits by Christine Nash

The third layout of the day came September 14, 2006 over at Scrappers Daily Dose where one of my favorite layouts won Layout of the Day honors. This one is a layout of my beautiful baby Emily. The photo was taken shortly after birth. I used Dana Frantz’ beautiful kits “Oh Baby Boy” and “Oh Baby Girl”.
It is called “Sugar and Spice and Everything Nice”.

My second layout of the Day I received a day later at Gotta Pixel. This layout of Steven's friend Kari won layout of the day honors on September 13, 2006. I used the very cool “Mexican Fiesta” by ScrappinMad over at Digi Scrap Yard. It is called "Kari Entertaining the Troops.

I made this poor little blog 2 months ago and have never posted! Today, I am rectifying my mistake and also testing things out! Hopefully, I’ll figure things out as I go along and not make too many errors! I thought I would toot my own horn on this first entry and write about some of the recognition I’ve received for some of my layout designs.
My first recognition came On September 12, 2006 when I received Layout of the Day honors at Digitals. I made an “All About Me” page about my favorite things. It is called “My Favorite Things…Books”.
