winners announced and some other info to share

First of all, thanks to everyone who took the time to share your memories with me :) I honestly got that warm fuzzy feeling while reading them. I enjoyed them so much that I gave everyone the kit!!! Can't wait to see what you all create using it!

Next, I want to tell you all that Erica Zane has a new date pack, Border Dates, out this week at ScrapMatters. They are such a nice finishing touch. I don't use nearly enough date elements. I'll be using these again and again. The layout below uses these and her kit Josh of the Jungle (which is completely adorable) both are available at ScrapMatters.


My friend invited us to the Fort Wayne Zoo at the end of May and we had such a good time!

My last piece of really really big news is that I'm now a "Britt Girl"!!! I have been a fan of Britt-ish Designs since I started digi-scrapping about a year and a half ago. I'm just way beyond excited to be a part of her team! You can check out her store HERE at ScrapMatters, you won't be disappointed.

That's all for now. I'm ready to spend a nice relaxing weekend with the family. I'm also working on a collab kit that I can't wait to share :) I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend.

Want to win my new kit?

Want to win my new kit? I've posted a giveaway HERE at Funky Playground and Becca was nice enough to post at DST and DSA HERE and HERE. We'll be back Friday morning with the winners. Can't wait that long? You can pick it up in my store for only $1.00 today.

I've been bad at promoting the designers that I CT for. I'm working up a blog schedule so that I get better with blogging.

Here's a page using Erica Zane's Eggplant Envy. I love the colors in this kit. It's just so pretty. This is a picture of me and the kid's feet. They are both always on my lap, most of the time fighting to get the other off. One day it dawned on me that this won't last forever and one day they'll be too cool to sit on my lap. I just snapped this picture so I won't forget.


I've used Erica's Sail Away kit for this page. I love this kit, but it makes me want some beautiful beach pictures to match.


Here are some other pages I've scrapped recently. This first one uses Britt-ish Designs - The Bright Side.


I recently bought Traci Reed's - His Playroom. This is really a fun kit. I want to use it again, but designing is getting in the way. {sigh}


I'll be back tomorrow to announce the winners of the contests. Good luck!

$1 New Release & a Freebie

So I'm finally revealing my kit. I wanted to go ahead and put it in the store so I didn't have to worry about it in the morning when the kids are the most unruly. This kit will be $1.00 Thursday only, well technically tonight and until I wake up Friday morning to switch it back to normal price, but I think you're getting one heck of a deal for a buck!

I was inspired after looking through some old family photo albums and went from there. There are so many important memories and life moments captured in pictures, I just felt it was appropriate to name this kit, Remember Me. Versatile enough for use on just about any layout. Scroll down to look at the awesomeness my CT created and for that promised freebie!

Here's that freebie I promised you. I just couldn't stop creating this kit!

Whew! That was a long one. Only took half an hour. I'm getting better at my blog time management. I'd love to see any pages you make using this kit or any other kits of mine. You can always e-mail your layouts to me at tawisha @ yahoo dot com. Who knows, there could be a little reward for doing so...

I'm a dummy, but I've got a freebie for you.

and just realized I spelled "sneak peek" wrong. lol. I don't have time to change the image right now, but I really do know how to spell :)

I will show you a page I did using my new kit coming out tomorrow. This is an old photo of my great grandparents. They both died before I was born, but I just love looking through the family albums. I would eventually like to share these with my family and let them do their own journaling on the pages so that they can write down the stories that are important to them. Would make a nice Christmas present, huh? Maybe I can get going on some of these older pictures and finish by December.

My CT requested some numbers and I after much playing around, I came up with these little number dots. Included are red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple, black and white. They should recolor easily. I made 0-9 and a blank one. Hope you enjoy!

sneak peek and a speed scrap

I have a new kit coming out on Thursday, Remember Me. I really love the way it came out and loved working with these deep colors. You can pick it up for only $1 Thursday only!

Also, there will be a speed scrap at Funky Playground on Saturday, August 1st at 9 pm EST. I'm looking forward to participating if the kids cooperate and are asleep by then. We'd love to see you there!

Short and sweet tonight. It's storming here and I want to get back to finishing up an add-on for you all. Can't wait to reveal the kit Thursday!!!

Final Post for the Day.

I had no intentions of doing 3 blog posts this morning, but I didn't want to make a huge post. I really should try to blog more often and I wouldn't have this problem. I wanted to share these free templates that my CT member AmyP made. Images are linked to her blog. (sorry it took so long for me to post these Amy)

These are her very first times making templates so be sure you leave her some love if you grab them, she may just make more :)

I've been scrapping this weekend. It was nice to just scrap. I used Amanda Heimann's Magical Vacation for these first two pages. I'm in love with these colors! Really awesome kit.

Leah has this cute kit available today at Funky Playground.

Tania Shaw has Amy out today at Funky Playground.

Miss Tiina has Low-Key out today as well.

I've blogged about this kit before, but I used it again because I just love it that much.

Well I *think* that's it for the day. I need to get back to Allison who's becoming bored with Sesame Street and keeps crawling over to me. She's really not technically crawling yet, but she moves around by sitting on her butt and using her hands to pull her forward while her legs steer. It's the funniest thing to watch. She's also been pulling herself up and I think she may skip the traditional crawl altogether. Since she's now mobile I've spent the majority of my time decluttering the house and making sure everythings baby proof again. I feel like I've been on top of it but I'm amazed on the tiny objects she finds. How do they do it? Find those things that even I couldn't find? lol.

New Release - In a Boy's World

I've teamed up with Valorie Brown and created In a Boy's World. A huge boy kit loaded with rich textured papers and unique rough and tumble elements!!

Have a boy who is ALL BOY? This kit is for you! Have a little tomboy on your hands? This kit is perfect for tons of layouts! Masculine and boyish yet eclectic enough to fit a girl layout as well.

I really enjoyed working with Valorie on this kit. She so talented and sweet! You can pick this kit up today for 50% off! Image is linked to store.

Ready to see this kit in action? I really love this kit and enjoyed working with it.

Here are two pages from me:
