GDS Designer Contest Update…and a new layout!

My final submission for the Go Digital Scrapbooking Designer Contest was this “Welcome Winter” kit.

The download links have expired at this time, but I will hopefully be offering this kit with some extra add-ons at a later date. Needless to say, I did not win the Go Digital Designer contest. Though I was very disappointed, I learned a lot through the process and am proud to have made it to the final round with some very talented designers. A big congratulations to Tricia of Seoul 2 Seoul Designs.

After two weeks of getting ready for the holidays, I have finally found a minute to sit down and scrap my first layout for the Supreme Team this month! The Collab kit for Dec 2012 is “Christmas Past”. This kit is beautiful. Here is my layout about Christmas Traditions.

Thanks for stopping by. Have a happy holiday…if I don’t blog before then. 🙂


24 Days Until Christmas!

Wow, December 1st is here!  I can’t believe it is here already.  I guess I had better get these trees set up so we can get ready for our annual Christmas Open House.

Today, Diesel elf brought a friend with him.  His note read:

Dear Jack & Peyton,

I brought my friend along with me tonight to help me carry your gifts.  Here is a little riddle to help you along…

What is white and red and tastes oh so yummy?

Only 24 more days until Christmas!

Diesel and Friend

Here is a picture of Diesel and his friend hiding out in the coat rack!

Here is his gift (there were 2 but Jack snagged his and ate it before I got out of bed).

The kids' favorite... candy canes

This morning we also decorated the Christmas tree in the dining room.  The kids had the attention span of a gnat, but that was okay with me too since we had a plethora of decorations on the bottom of the tree and NONE on top!  So glad to have one of my bigger trees up and decorated!
