I'm excited to be participating in this year's American Digi Scrapping Race. This race is based on the "Great Race" reality show, but in this contest teams of digital artists work their way from digital scrapbook site to digital scrapbook site across the internet, completing challenges! There is a total of 2 challenges a week for 7 weeks. I'm nervous and excited at the same time. I'll try to post layouts and keep you up to date on my team's progress. I've teamed up with a great scrapper from Enchanted Studio Scraps named Bren. Our team is the "Pixie Partners" what else!
The race begins this Sunday! Maybe I'll see some of you there! Wish us luck!
How this Saint's Feast Day went from this:
I'll never know.
I think it had something to do with greeting cards and jewelry manufacturers . . . But anyway, I'm just going to try to take the positive out of the situation, and hope all of you have some love in your life. You know I care, right?! So, to wish you a lovely Valentines Day, here's a little gift for you . . . a set of journal tags that you can use to make some last minute Valentine notes with, or just leave a little love note in your sweetie's lunchbox, or hey - even add it to a scrapbook layout! These will eventually be in my store at Enchanted Studio Scraps . . . set to reopen this week! So get these while you can and have a great day everyone!! Sorry link has expired .

Around February I usually start getting antsy for some sunshine and some colors. I'm tired of the bleak landscapes of winter and I'm craving something a little warmer and brighter, so this color palette popped into my head . . . and it kind of reminded me of something I would see on some 70s wallpaper . . . which made me think of cozy kitchens . . . and then I wanted some french toast . . . and voila! Breakfast in Bed was created!
It' a really versatile kit that could be used for any number of layouts! It comes with 15 12x12" papers, 30 decorative elements, and one alpha. You'll find plenty to work with to make yourself some cheerful pages! It's available at Enchanted Studio Scraps, in Sugar Moon Designs Shop, but the first week of February Enchanted Studio Scraps will be closed for one week as they switch their servers over to someone more reliable. If you like the kit - don't forget to come over to Sugar Moon in February - it's going to be on sale for the store's reopening!! You won't want to miss it!
Here's a preview of the papers that are included in the kit:

Here's one of the newest kits for sale at Sugar Moon Designs - it's ready to jump out of the box and make some great pages all about the mischievous monkeys in your life!

Every Wednesday evening (9:00 p.m. est/8:00 p.m. cst) Designs in Digital has a speed scrap. It's a great way to get a layout done, and chat with other scrappers. Anyone can stop by and join in! If you don't feel like chatting, you can also do the speed scrap by following along in the forum, and then just post your layout to the Designs in Digital Gallery. The speed scraps usually last about an hour and everyone is very nice! You'll have a great time!
If you've never been, you just show up, maybe have a few photos and some layout supplies ready and your photo editing program open. About every 10-15 minutes, the host will post a set of instructions for your layout. There's usually around seven total instructions, and by the time it's over you'll have a layout done. If you don't get it done right away, no problem, the Designs in Digital Speed Scraps have a deadline of noon est the next day - that takes some of the pressure off!
This week, Sugar Moon Designs in hosting - and of course there's going to be prizes!!! I hope you can come and follow along with us.
Here's a little preview of the prize that's going to be given away! A new mini kit from Sugar Moon Designs. You'll have to come by and play if you want your own!
Here's a couple of layouts I've already done with it:
