We're Going to Disney World!!!!

I have such exciting news you guys!! Josh and I scored a CRAZY deal on flights to Orlando, so we took the plunge and booked a trip to Disney World!! Neither of us have ever been and we're on cloud 9 right now. AND we took advantage of the free dining offer that Disney is offering right now, so our trip is seriously a BARGAIN!! I can hardly believe we are going!!

Our trip is booked for Sept. 29 - Oct. 7. We are staying at Disney's Pop Century Resort. We need lots of restaurant recommendations and tips for our trip!! So, if you have any great ideas, etc. email me at designerbrittney at gmail .com!! Gosh - I can't even believe we're really going. It all happened so fast!!

I've Been Sick!

**HMPH.  This post was scheduled to automatically post itself early this morning, but it didn't?!! WHY THE HECK NOT?! Annoying. Anyway - sorry for the late post. Here it is . . . **

So - we made it home from Denver late Monday night. Both our flights out and back were SERIOUSLY delayed, but oh well. It was a really fun weekend with people I LOVE SO MUCH.

The saddest news is, Tuesday I woke up with a wicked sinus infection. I've been trying to rest, get caught up from the weekend, and get stuff together and ready for today. But this darn infection persists and drains me of my energy. I hope I can get it out of my system quickly.

But in the mean time - I've got two little mini-kits in the store today. Both previously Speed Scrap prizes, but in the store available now!!

"Seriously Cute"


"My Trendy Baby"

Check out what my fabulous Britt Girls scrapped with these mini-kits (thanks soooo much, girls!)

I hope you'll have fun scrapping with these two little kits too!

And a quick reminder that you have just 4 more days to purchase the "Mystery Mix - June Grab Bag No.5" that I collaborated on. After that the products will all be individually divided up into the store.

Ready for this week's Show Offs?

Not very many Show Offs came in this week, but I loved seeing all those that were shared. Thanks so much! Your prize this week is your choice of either of the new mini-kits in the store this week: "Seriously Cute" or "My Trendy Baby"! Watch your email inboxes for my email and then respond with your choice.

Well, its a short and simple post this week. I'm feeling pretty sick, so I had to make it quick. Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!!

Thursday Ramblings

First of all, just wanted to say thanks to all those who came to my Speed Scrap yesterday!! I think we all had a fun time. Speed Scraps really feel like friends getting together and scrapping for an hour or two. :) I was happy to see so many familiar faces and some new ones too!! Here's what I scrapped and based the instructions on . . .


This is actually a re-do of a page I did a LONG time ago that I never liked and therefore never printed!! :)

Tomorrow we're launching a fun event over at ScrapMatters. It's brand new, and I can't wait to see how its received.

Basically the SM designers were put into teams and then that team created a Mystery Mix grab bag. There are SIX grab bags in all, and they are all stuffed full of scrapping goodness. They are only available during the dates listed above. After that they'll all get divided up and put into the designers' individual stores. :) :) So - get excited!! I'll be previewing our Mystery Mix on my blog here tomorrow. I also have a couple other goodies to release tomorrow too!!

Oh - quick reminder. If you're sending in a Show Off this week, make sure I get it before midnight tonight or you won't be able to get your prize and be in the slideshow this week. I mentioned it before, but I have to start setting my post to self-post early in the AM from now on because of the earlier release time for new products. So - don't forget to send them in on time!!

Well, I guess that's it for today. I'm going to go eat lunch and get back to laundry. Gotta get ready for our weekend in Denver!! I'm so excited.

See ya tomorrow morning!

Day Time Speed Scrap Tomorrow!!!

TOTALLY SHORT NOTICE!! Sooooo sorry. This really just snuck up on me. But I will be hosting the Speed Scrap tomorrow morning at 11:00 am MST!!


so sexy

Oh yeah! You know numb-face is sexy! As you might have guessed, I just got home from my THIRD dentist appointment. It was not pleasant, but oh well. It's over and that's all that matters. I'm SO SAD to report that I have to have one more appointment. To fill one last little cavity and get my crown permanently cemented. **SIGH** I was really hoping today was the last one. :( Oh well.

How was everyone's weekend? Josh planned such a fun surprise over-night date for us. On his way home from work he called to tell me to quick pack an overnight bag! Woo hoo!! I was hoping his surprise was an over-night! First, we went to Ikea and bought a cute new comforter, then we went to Texas Roadhouse for dinner (it was our first time and we loved it so much we drove all the way back out there again last night!! HAHA). Then he drove us to Salt Lake City to the Little America to stay overnight. It was such a fun thoughtful surprise. Thank you, Baby!!!

In the morning we slept in, went to Mimi's Cafe for breakfast and then came home so Josh could play in his soccer game. We had some crazy stormy weather this weekend, but luckily his game ended just as the black clouds rolled in and dumped rain on us! We all went running for our cars!

So this weekend was great. AND I'm soooo excited for this coming weekend because we are flying out to Denver to visit my brother and his family!! It's been about 2 months since we've seen them and we're sooo excited. 

A few scrapbook pages to share and then I'm going to say goodbye and go rest on the couch while my face regains feeling!!




One last thing before I'm done. Ashley asked where I'd rather be right now. I know my answer comes as no surprise. Instead of sitting at home with a numb face, I'd rather be at the Happiest Place On Earth.

Have a great day!!

Good morning and happy Friday!! It's new release Friday and I've got a REALLY fun new kit to release today!!


Some of you might remember that my husband's soccer team's name is the Hooligans. So - thanks guys, for the inspiration for the name. But this kit is mostly just fun, boy, mischief, happy kid style.

Here's what I scrapped with it:

These are my cutie nephews from a photo shoot I did with them 1 whole year ago!! Time really flies. (I'm wondering if anyone gets a laugh from my 'Tommy Boy' reference in the title).

And here's the beautiful creations by my Britt Girls:

Aren't they amazing?! I loved the versatility that came out of this kit!!

Make sure you read to the bottom of the post because I have an add-on freebie for you as well!!!

And I also have one other new product today as well.

"Glitzy Wordlettes 2"

I decided it was time for another round of Glitzy Wordlettes. The originals were released a LONG LONG time ago. You can see how cute these new ones look in Christy's LO above!!

Ok - new products released? Check. That means its time for SHOW OFFS!


FUN SHOW OFFS huh?! Thanks to everyone who sent them in this week. You'll all be getting my new "Glitzy Wordlettes 2", so watch your emails.

If you want to find out more about being a Show Offs and getting free stuff each week, read the bottom of this post.

There have been some changes at ScrapMatters this month, one being that the new products are being activated much earlier than they have been in the past. SO - here's what I have to do in order to keep up. **SHOW OFFS PLEASE READ THIS** Show Offs have always been due at midnight MST on Thursday nights. But, I've always been lenient and allowed any that come in before sun-up to be included. Unfortunately, I won't be able to do this anymore. I'll be taking any LOs that come in before midnight, but that's it!  Anything after midnight will have to go in the next week's batch.  So turn 'em in ON TIME.  The reason is, I'm going to set my post to publish itself early early in the morning when the new products are activated (it will be like crack of dawn Eastern Time. I am so NOT getting up that early!! HAHA).

Alrighty - that's it from me. Before I go, here's the freebie add-on to "Hooligans" that I promised you!!


ENJOY! I hope you all have a wonderful weekend. My sweet, amazing, fantastic, loving husband has some surprise up his sleeve, so I have no idea what we're doing this weekend. But I LOVE surprises, so I'm super excited. :) :)

sneaky peeky

Just thought I'd pop in and give you a sneak peek at what I'm releasing tomorrow!!!!

Are you excited? I AM!! I really can't wait.

OK - time for some LOs to share . . .  (and before you think I've been a scrapping maniac or something - these are all LOs I've done in the past few weeks.  I haven't actually scrapped much this week at all)










This last LO is for my latest "My Story Matters" challenge over at ScrapMatters. For those who don't know - its a series of challenges that give you prompts to create your own personal history album. It's REALLY fun. This challenge is to scrap about vacations or trips you took as a child.

Well - I think that's it from me! I'll see you guys tomorrow for new release Friday!
