Project 365 Update

Today, I'd like to share my 365 Project, Week 9 LO. I'm pretty proud of myself for sticking with this challenge! I'm looking forward to a 100+ page album at the end of the year. This week, I used some beautiful background papers from Cheryl McCain's kit "Iris in Spring". Other credits can be found HERE. I used this LO the the Paper Patch Challenge, details can be found HERE. Take a look at the rest of "Iris in Spring" and Cheryl's other kits in the store HERE.

Project 365 Update

Today, I thought I'd take a look and see how everyone was doing with their Project 365 layouts. I found week number 7 by Grammadiane. I really like her photo frames with the days of the week identification. Diane used "Timeless" by Carol Marion from The Scrapping Garden. You can find more Project 365 LOs by Diane and others in the Find of the Day Gallery HERE.

Challenge Spotlight - Paper Patch Crop - Hosted by Diann Snow

Please join me on Feb 12th at 8PM ET in the chatroom for the Paper Patch Crop. The Paper Patch Crop kit is my brand new "Je t'aime" kit. You can purchase the paper pack and Quickpage in the store HERE for $2.00 until midnight after the crop.

This kit will serve nicely for your Valentine, Romantic or Heritage layouts. The soft colors and muted tones will also work well for Mothers Day or Anniversarys. Post a layout using the papers and elements that I'll be giving out at the crop and get the "Je t'amie" kit elements free AND another Quickpage. Post a layout using the "Je t'aime" Quickpage and get the kit elements as your posting bonus.
Here is a look at the elements you will receive after you have completed the challenge.

I finally finished the second quick page that will be given as an additional posting bonus if you use the kit elements...

Here is a layout I did using the stickit!

365 Project - February Templates

I'm a bit late in getting these posted but if you're like me, you wait til the end of the week to create your layouts, so maybe I'm in time for most of you.

I hope you enjoy using these templates! The great thing about templates is you can make changes to them if they don't suit your photo orientation. If you've taken landscape photos, just turn these around to suit your photos.

Download yours HERE.

Thanks for stopping by!

Challenge Spotlight - It's All About Me - hosted by Carol Marion

February is the month of hearts and flowers, so I decided it would be a great time to work on a theme of love. I've found in my genealogy research, lots of wedding photos of various ancesters. In many of them, they didn't dress in white, but in black. Seeing the young faces of my grandparents and g-grandparents, I wonder what they were thinking and how they felt....they looked so young. So----this month we are going to scrap those wedding photos.

Here's how the February crop will work:

1) The Theme is "Timeless Love"

2) The challenge is to scrap a wedding photo or portait and convey either a memory or story or a bit of research that you want to be remembered.

3) This month, the featured kit will be my "Timeless Memories" kit. It is on sale this month at 30% off in my store HERE. (My "Timeless Memories Add-on is the Promo mini-kit for the month of Feb and is free with any $10 purchase in the store)

4) Layouts should be posted in the gallery no later than Feb 26 to receive the posting bonus. If you you post a layout without the featured kit, you will receive a template (that may be used for the next crop), but if you post a layout using the featured kit, you will receive the template AND a special mini-kit created just for this crop.

6) You can still participate in the crop if you are unable to make the chat as this is a month-long crop.

7) I will give out a gift to help out with your layout at the chat.

7) Check out the forum HERE throughout the month for extra info and links.

Have fun this month and see you at the chat on February 2nd. If you have any questions or suggestions, your feedback is always me at
