Ok - so if you downloaded the "Mouse in the House" freebie before Friday at 6:00 PM (MST) there's a good chance your "Certified Disney Magical Moment" stamps are spelled wrong! I corrected the download as soon as one of my sweet customers brought it to my attention, but I forgot to post it on my blog so that the first few of you who downloaded it could get the corrected ones! So - check your stamps!! :) hehe If they are spelled wrong, download THESE corrected stamps. The majority of you have the right ones. Just some of you might not. . . sorry. Don't hate me!!!!!
Ooooh and I have an announcement! The oh-so-fabulous Erica Zane has joined my mini-CT-band-of-gypsies, and I have joined HERS!! Yep, we liked each other so much we are CTin' for each other! haha!! Here's a link to Erica's Blog and here's a link to Erica's Shop. She sells and Snap & Scrap.
My first kit to play with from Erica, "Lavendar Skies". It's soooo pretty!
And I scrapped this special page of the moment I met my cousin's baby! I almost said my niece because she pretty much IS my niece. I mean, I'm her aunt Brittney for cryin' out loud. Anyway - here it is.
Alrighty folks, so that's my fun new news! You'll be seein' more LOs from me with products from Miss Erica Zane! :)
Peace out yo!

Hooray!!! It's Friday and that means the much anticipated (ok, maybe only anticipated by ME) release of . . .
Like it? Well, its yours for FREE if you purchase the mega-kit within the first week of its release.
Just purchase the kit, and you'll get the QP download with it (no coupon code for those of you who got the free QP album with Dreams Do Come True). This way will be much easier!!
Ok . . . so are you ready to see the kit in action?? Well, let's get to it!
First up Kate scrapped not one, but TWO fabulous LOs.
Kate is so creative! I am in love with both of these amazing creations!!
This LO by Zakirah ROCKS!!!
I love how she TOTALLY captured the fun family feel of the kit and kept it fresh and edgy at the same time!!
Sya pulled every once of fun, sunshine and happiness out of the kit and came up with this awesome LO!
Sya, you are amazing!!
Danica scrapped her adorable Isabel being a little goof!
I love how she pulled the red, white, blue, and black out and created a perfect color scheme for her pics! So so cute!!
And lastly, my LO. If you know me or read my blog you know my Disney pics are treasures and I have a hard time scrapping them because I'm so overwhelmed and want them to be PERFECTLY scrapped. Well, I went for it and scrapped some favorite D-land pics. I mean, how can I not when I have the perfect stuff to scrap 'em with now!!
As I said last time I made a Disney-inspired freebie, I in no way shape or form intend to claim copyright or ownership over anything Disney-owned such as Mickey Mouse. I in no way intend to sell or profit from this freebie in any way, shape, or form. I created these items for my own personal use and am simply sharing them with my friends and fellow Disney lovers! :) I LOVE Disney so much.
And as I said last time, if you download the freebie, all I ask is that you at least check out the mega-kit. My husband and I appreciate all of your sales and support more than you can know. Being able to work as a designer is such a blessing, and being able to help support our little family by doing it is incredible! Thank you again!!!
Did you think I forgot about the Show-Offs?!! Oh no no no! I would never!
Have a WONDERFUL Friday, and an amazing weekend! Snatch this new kit up and leave the world behind this weekend and just SCRAP!!!! I know I will (for a little while between unpacking boxes that is!).

Ok - so I MADE myself take time to make a new freebie for scrapghead today. I've been promising them one forever and just never got to it. So while I was busy getting my new kit ready for its BIG PREMIERE tomorrow, I took time out to create this cute April Desktop Calendar using "Dreams Do Come True" for anyone who would like it.
April is just around the corner, so I thought this might be a fun treat. Of course, yours will come as a .png, ready for you to put your OWN photos in. Although I'm sure you want that cute photo of my mom and niece, and me & my handsome husband!!
Click HERE to get the freebie!!
Ok so I just can't WAIT for tomorrow. My new kit is so much fun, and my wonderful friends and CT have already done some WAY cute LOs with it!! Plus, there's a special offer, a coordinating freebie . . . so much fun!!!!!! Don't forget to come back here to check it all out tomorrow!!!
I'll leave you with a couple LOs I did.
This one goes with the other Moving Day LO that I scrapped before.
Alright, still have a couple things left to do to get ready for the big release tomorrow. Gotta run.

Ok so there's a little quiz that tells you what kind of egg you are. It's like the shortest quiz ever, but the results are funny! Just answer the one question and trust the psychic energy to tell you correctly what kind of egg you are.
|I am a Hand Painted Egg|
Classy and gorgeous - with attention to every detail.
Pretty funny. Anyway - just wanted to wish everyone a VERY happy Easter Sunday! With the house in boxes, and being SOOOO busy, not to mention poor, there are no Easter baskets or goodies or the usual treasure hunt going on at our house this year. It just feels like any other Sunday so far. After church and dinner at both parents' houses I'm sure things will start to feel Eastery.
A couple LOs to share. Wanna see what a mess moving was last weekend??
And some pics from when I finally finished the Christmas cards!
Well, I better go find some church clothes to wear! I'm telling you, EVERYTHING is in boxes! Argh!!!

(**note - if you came here lookin' for the "Sunshine Sweets" freebie, scroll down to the previous post!!**)
THIRTEEN amazing LOs to Show Off this week!! Here we go . . .
Now, if you sent me a Show Off and it wasn't in this slideshow, never fear! Just shoot me a quick email and I'll correct my error!! As I wasn't home all week organizing the Show Off emails as they came in, was a little trickier than usual. So its just my dumb mistake if you were omitted!! I hope I got everyone, but I'm not perfect!
Anyway - all the Show Offs are getting my brand spanking new template pack called "Don't Hold Back". I created a couple brand new templates as well as used a couple of my own favorite LOs and made them into templates. I hope you all like them!!
They are up at scraphead, but not up at ScrapMatters yet. When they are at SM, I'll let you know!! :)
1) when you send the email, please make the subject line of your email "Show Off" and
2) make sure to send a "Saved for Web" version of your page.
I'm getting more and more Show-Offs these days and I want the process to be as easy as possible and I don't want to forget anyone by accident! So by doing these two things I think it will really help the weekly process!!! THANKS!
I don't feel like I gave my new little product last week it's due. My "Glitzy Wordlettes" pack is up at both ScrapMatters and scraphead.
They are fun glittery word stickers and I used them on this LO and I think they worked out so cute!! (plus, they're only 2 bucks!)
I actually did this LO for a really fun challenge at ScrapMatters hosted by the lovely miss Happy Scrap Girl. It's a 1-Hour challenge. You have exactly 1 hour to complete your LO along with a couple other fun rules thrown in there. Check out the 1-Hour Challenge here. But anyway - aren't the Glitzy Wordlettes fun?!
Oh yeah! Want a chance to win a FREE kit from me?! Dacia is hosting a little mini-challenge on the Team Blog and I've donated two kits for two winners. Any kit they want. So yeah, if you'd like a kit from me, enter Dacia's Color Theory challenge! It's easy. You just read her article about color combinations, and then try out one of them! I did a complimentary color scheme using blue and orange! It was really fun and I LOVE how it turned out!!!!
Anyway - there are some great ways to win some free stuff!! :) haha
That's it for now! Have a wonderful Friday!!

Alrighty folks, its time to release my part of the Sunshine Girls freebie! The collab kit this time was Easter/Spring inspired. It's called "Sunshine Sweets" and I've seen all the parts and there is SOOOOO much totally cute stuff.
I hope you like my part!
Click HERE to download.
Leave me some love if you download. (NOTE! If it says: "User downloading session limit is reached. Please try again in a few minutes" when you are trying to download, that just means too many people are trying to download at once. Just be patient and try again in a few minutes!!)
Here's how you get all the other parts. Once you download my part, inside the folder you will find the link to the next part, you download that one and find the next download in her folder. It's like one big long chain of downloads!! It's an Easter Egg hunt! Have fun hunting and downloading all the beautiful spring goodies!!
Oh! and what would be an Easter hunt without the GOLDEN EGG?? Somewhere during your hunt, you will download the Golden Egg, this link will take you to somewhere where you've NEVER been before, someplace NEW and VERY exciting!! This new place will have a great surprise for you (and only you, our loyal egg hunters)! This surprise will also contain a link that will help you continue on your hunt until at last your journey brings you back to my little blog... where your hunt will be complete!
No hurry...all of our links will be active for plenty long enough for you all to find your eggs, crack them open and enjoy your sweets in time for Easter! Have fun! If you come to any inactive links, just be patient. Remember its all in fun, and its free!! Don't freak out. Like I said, the links stay active for a LONG time. There's no rush!!

I'm FINALLY home in my new house. Directly after moving we went to my parent's house to spend a few days with the lil' bro while my parents are in Hawaii. Yes, Mom & Dad missed out on all the fun of helping us move. I'm sure they were sitting on a warm beach drinking Diet Coke with their feet up, not a care in the world, while we were lugging boxes, breaking stuff and generally having a miserable time! No worries though Mom & Dad! I'm just jealous!
So yes, the move is done and we are no where NEAR settled yet. I spent my first official night at home not unloading boxes or setting up house, but finishing up my part of the big Sunshine Girls Easter collab. freebie that comes out tomorrow!! Yes, I've joined ranks with these fabulous girls and I get to give out a part of the awesome freebie kit! Get excited and come back tomorrow for my part and for a hunt (really just a train of downloads) for all the other parts. Here's a little sneak peek of what my mini-kit looks like!! heehee
Check back tomorrow for the full freebie! It's a good one!
You'll all be happy to know that I'm FINALLY feeling better! It's been about over 4 weeks now, so its about dang time! My hearing is still a little hampered due to stuffiness, and I'm still blowin' my nose but nowhere NEAR as much as I was last week. I'm so grateful to be healing! It's been way too long!!
Well, that's about it for now. Just poppin' in to say hi and to apologize for being absent for so long!! Thanks for all the words of encouragement during the move and during my sickness! It's so nice to get warm comments!
It's past midnight, time for bed! See ya tomorrow!!

I hate moving. I REALLY hate it!!! It's exhausting and it consumes my life. Plus this cold just keeps lingering, so my energy level is super low so I'm not able to get as much done in a day as I want. I've moved 7 times in the last 3 and half years. Whoa, that can't be right . . . well there's 2 of those that weren't FULL moves, but still!! Grr! I HATE TO MOVE!
Personality Type Quiz
Shy Personality Type
Alright, thats a long enough break for me. Gotta get back to packing! It seriously never ends!!!!!!

When Morgan, Josh & Gracelyn came to visit last month we went to the zoo! Did you know you can go to the zoo in the winter? Well, you can! It's very fun!!
And this LO was for a challenge over at Sweet Shoppe Designs where we were challenged to refresh an old LO that no longer relfected our scrapping style. I knew exactly which LO to "refresh". I had always been unhappy with this LO that I scrapped a long time ago, and this challenge gave me the perfect opportunity to fix it!!
Anyway - It felt really good to scrap a little. Now I just need to get better so I can start packing up my house! It's driving me insane to be lying around and not packing!!!
