Here is a layout I did with Vicki's new kit, Chocolate Valentine. You can find her kit Here in her store at Eidou . Make sure you check out her blog too as she always has awesome stuff. Usually a full kit each week. Please make sure you post a comment on her blog to let her know how we all appreciate her beautiful work.

I hope you like it Vicki. This kit is awesome and wonderful to work with. I love how the textures of the papers and everything else looks after I posted. GREAT job Vicki....it is a most have kit for all your Valentines.
Day 2- This is one of my niece, Gracie. She is one of the little girls I have been scrapping for the last four years...anyway I went to visit my sister for the weekend and we were out side with the girls and Gracie just had to show me how to use her fishing pole in her pool. She was a very good caster too!
Good afternoon everyone... I hope you are enjoying your evening. So how is everyone doing with the huge challenges that I have noticed all over scrapland, Project 365 photo per day? When cruising my regular blogs and sites, I have seen all kinds of versions of this very popluar challenge. I have been working on mine too. Woo Hoo, I have taken a photo or two each day....Labeling them and doing some journal notes for each one, too. I will post five more of them tomorrow or Monday, but here is my first layout from that project. I want to do a layout with my new release, Snowflakes, Too! It finally got put in my store last week and this was a good photo (Day 3) to do it with. Here are my journal notes for it:

Day 3- On the second night I was at my sisters, she wanted to share a special kind of ice cream she found, Strawberry Cheese Cake with graham cracker crust in it...and she made me laugh as we had been visiting my mom together over the summer and she was always telling us we were using the wrong bowls for things we were eat....long story...so my sister said, "To share this special ice cream we have to have a SPECIAL bowl, Ice cream cone shaped bowls with SPECIAL SPOONS, too!" and we both laughs so hard....so the picture is Gracie and Amber getting the SPECIAL bowl out and fulling them with the SPECIAL ice cream. Brandon really thought we were crazy as we keep asking each other, "Doesn't is taste better in the SPECIAL bowls and spoons."

New Release in my store at Treasures To Scrap. Keep your eyes out for some new changes upcoming for Treasures To Scrap!Here is a Quick page I made for sharing with you. I used mostly all my new kit but the frames I had got from my dear friend at A Work in Progress aka Vicki Parker which I altered a little. I hope you enjoy it and remember my retirement sale still coming on at TTS, too!

Freebie I found and made for you from Bon Scrapatit Design !

Happy New Year everyone. I am sorry I have not been back for a few days, but I am still having trouble getting the one kit I had ready upload to the store, so I thought I would drop by to let you know what was going on. I have been doing well with the challenge 365 Photo Project, but haven't posted any of them yet. I think I am going to just add a slide show here on my blog of the pictures I take. Posting them a week at a time. And as I get the layouts finished I will post what they all mean to me. The photos will be named in the slide show like DAY 1, Day 2, ect. and I will post the meaning weekly with what even I am posting for you.

Here are the first five Days
:

Day 1- We have been going to the Quick's house for New Year's dinner for about four years now. Laura and Gerry are good friends of ours and with the holidays being so busy, we get together on this day each year to have a special dinner and visit.

Day 2- This is one of my niece, Gracie. She is one of the little girls I have been scrapping for the last four years...anyway I went to visit my sister for the weekend and we were out side with the girls and Gracie just had to show me how to use her fishing pole in her pool. She was a very good caster too!

Day 3- On the second night I was at my sisters, she wanted to share a special kind of ice cream she found, Strawberry Cheese Cake with graham cracker crust in it...and she made me laugh as we had been visiting my mom together over the summer and she was always telling us we were using the wrong bowls for things we were eat....long story...so my sister said, "To share this special ice cream we have to have a SPECIAL bowl, Ice cream cone shaped bowls with SPECIAL SPOONS, too!" and we both laughs so hard....so the picture is Gracie and Amber getting the SPECIAL bowl out and fulling them with the SPECIAL ice cream. Brandon really thought we were crazy as we keep asking each other, "Doesn't is taste better in the SPECIAL bowls and spoons."

Day 4- This is my SANTA collection. I have been collecting them for about 15 years now...Ole World Santas. I guess because I STILL BELIEVE in the magic of SANTA

Day 5- This is a Snowman I have for a Christmas deco and I was just practicing taking a close up with my new camera on a White subject taking not to have the light glaring off it. Not too bad...Practice makes a better use of the camera...Right?
In her store now "Dreams" by Mel Haines

Here is a layout I did with Mel_H new Digital Kit, "Dreams" You can get it !Scrapbook in her store. This is an adorable baby kit that can be for girls and boys alike. This is my youngest grandson, Xander, 1 month old. Make sure you check out Mel's Blog for a special freebie that goes with this kit...Remember to Thank Mel by leaving her a comment on her blog.

I was during the holidays but I did get a few thing done up ahead for you...like the Quick page, which Bon Scrapatit Designs likes to call the SCRAPATITS. I have to say that I think her And Winter Came is one of the best winter kits I saw in the Christmas Around the World 2008....I love blue and green together anyway, but with the white, glitter and glitz she added...OUTSTANDING job....I love it. It is still on her sidebar available to downloading, but remember to show her lots of love and appreciation for her hard work and her BIG giving HEART.
