Morning all! I'm late, but these days, what else is new - I just can't seem to stay on top of things! Busy season! This week at Lasting Memories it's all about "Red/Green/White" so I wanted to (re)showcase this awesome LO I made back in 2011. I can't believe this was 2 yrs ago! Ash and I took a gingerbread kit to my sisters and it was my niece/nephews very first one! Was so fun! I admit, I'm cheating but I just haven't had a minute the last bit. I have set a goal this week to get in my craftroom and try to get a few LO's ahead (we'll see how that goes!! LOL) Be sure to chk out the awesome DT inspiration and thanks for stopping by!

Hi everyone! Hope you had a wonderful week! This week at Digitally Sweet, we're being sponsored by Digi Darla Designs! Our challenge is an inspiration photo based on a Vintage Christmas. I chose the sentiment on my project to showcase for DDD and I decided to do something a little different - I made a 2014 calendar page!
My Memories Suite came out with V5 so I dl'd that and went to town! I uploaded the actual inspiration photo as my background and then played with the opacity a little and added the calendar. Easy peasy! Thanks for stopping by!

This is from the CTMH "Laughing Lola" card kit, but I always had my own spin on them

Our challenge this week at Lasting Memories is "Christmas Traditions". Since we haven't started our Christmas decorating yet, I am showing a 'naked' layout, with photos to come. We have so many traditions in our home as I love Christmas. That and Thanksgiving are my most favourite times of the year. Now that my daughter is older, she's really getting more involved in helping me decorate the house and I love that. Over the yrs, we've aquired so many ornaments, that when I decided I wanted a 'theme' tree, we had to have TWO trees! LOL! Looks so pretty though. So stay tuned for photos to come that will fill these layouts.
I used a new CTMH kit from our "Holiday Guide" called "Sparkle and Shine". Of course I added my own twist on it. I have to say, the bling?? I do not get a long with this stuff as a rule. There's some bad words flying, sweating, red face and frustration normally involved before I let a nasty word fly and throw it in the trash! LOL!! This bling though? O M Gosh! LOVE it!!! CTMH has come up with some way to make it work without binding up and sticking on itself. I loved working with it. So here's my 2 page spread ..
So come on over to Lasting Memories and show us your Christmas Traditions. We look fwd to seeing them and thank you so much for stopping by today!
One of the challenges I run recently found a new sponsor and we just LOVE her work!! So, it seemed fitting to be getting myself in gear to join her challenge as well. This weeks challenge at LunaGirl is Retro Girls!
How fun!! She even has a couple freebies if you would like to join and need an image! I chose to use "Mmmmm Pie" and here's my project!
Reminds me of days gone by with both my grandparents :)

It's "Anything Goes" at Digitally Sweet this week! One of my favourite challenges and we're being sponsored by
I was a little stumped as to what I wanted to do, I wanted to try something different, yet keep it 100% digital. So, I was inspired by a fellow DT member, Sarah (you have to see what she did!!). Here's my project using "Snowflake Quality Control" from LSS. I had her pre-colored on my desk, so I snapped a pic with my phone, emailed it to myself, edited and uploaded to my digital program. The kit is from MyMemories Suite called "Eskimo Kisses" and I colored her up with my Spectrum Noir markers
So that makes my creation today 100% digital!!
Thanks for stopping by and have a great wknd!
