Dreamy Summer Layout

Here's another layout I've done, this one using my kit 'Dreamy Summer', it's of my eldest Daughter, she had to take some photos for a project on 'Love' last year so I thought I'd use the photo and just change the heart colour on her hand a little, I'm really happy how it turned out, it's so soft and 'Dreamy'.

Thursday, January 15, 2009

I thought I would let you all see a few layouts that I've done recently using my new kit 'Green Elegance', I've had so much fun making these layouts as the weather has been so hot here lately the last thing I want to do is sit in front of a computer right now, so making layouts to me is still being here while not having to spend alot of time here, if you know what I mean, lol.

I hope you enjoy looking at these layouts, the first is of my daughter on her 15th Birthday, the second is a layout I did for the 'Inspiration Challenge' at SAS and the third is a photo of my daughter again at her 'Middle School Graduation' dinner.

This kit is so much fun to play with because it has 60 elements in it so you have quite the variety to put on your page, it is still on special at both SAS and DDD until 21st January.

Tuesday, January 13, 2009


Wow I've had a very busy couple of weeks into this year, but it's been alot of fun, my kids go back to school in two weeks time so I'm making the most of still having them with me through the day .... I love the holidays :)

Today I have a couple of Quickpages for you made using my new kit 'Dreamy Summer' which is still on sale until 15th January so if you want this kit best grab it now. HERE's the first one and the second you can get from the SAS NEWSLETTER. They are both 12"x12" in size.

I did a bit of pottering on my blog today, added a few more blinkies and also a 'blog-roll', 'translator' and a 'followers' section so that was something a little different from designing, oh and I changed my blog decorations too. I also had to stay outdoors for a few hours today because we were getting fumigated, lol .... it's apparently flea season and they had taken up residence in my DD's room ... not good at all, especially for her so hopefully now the problem is solved. I must admit it was lovely just sitting outside doing nothing but swimming and nibbling on food and playing games with the kids, luckily it wasn't too hot and humid either.
Enjoy your quickpages and please try and leave some love as I really enjoy reading your comments :)
