American Girl

I just love the look on McKenna's face when she realized what her Christmas gift was this particular Christmas!  I know, not your traditional Christmas scrapbooking kit, but I think that's why I despise scrapping holidays so much, because I think I have to use Christmas stuff.  So, this one I did differently and I ended up not minding scrapping Christmas for once!  Just may have to do this more often.

This was a free kit i downloaded.  I think it's by Zoe Pearn.  Cutesy and girly!

If cheering were easy....

...they'd call it football!  LOL...I just love that!  Another layout using the awesome cheer kit at DHD!

2 of many more cheer layouts to come, I'm sure, 'cause I've got a ton of pics from Micah's first season of competitive cheer!!  This is going to make for an awesome mini album for her! 

Oh, and little shout out to my sister.....HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!

Loud & Proud

Isn't this cheer kit adorable?!  Over at DHD, I asked and the designers listened!  Good luck finding a super cute digi cheer kit anywhere but at DHD!  Trust me, I've looked! 

Pics are of Micah cheering her 5th grade year!

How could I resist doing a Birrell layout with the greens of the Fabulous kit?!  Top it off with an Irish saying and it's a layout I'm sure Duane would be proud of! :)

It's a Blog Hop at Design House Digital!

To celebrate the official coming of SPRING, Design House Digital brings you an awesome Spring Blog Hop called Sweet As Spring!  Start at the Design House Digital blog and visit a bunch of DHD Designers and Decorators blogs along the way.  At each of the designers blogs, you'll learn new tips and techniques to help you with your digi scrapping.

There will be a clue at each stop and you will need to write them down and put them together to form a coupon code.  If you follow the whole hop in order, you will be able to get the mega kit for FREE...Sweet As Spring-A Blog Hop Treasure!! 

Twelve designers contributed to this kit for a total of 67 elements, 51 papers, and 4 alpha sets making this treasure worth the journey.  But, in addition, everyone who downloads the kit before Wednesday, March 27, will also be entered into a drawing for a $15 gift certificate to the Design House Digital shop! 

Layout I created using the Sweet As Spring mega kit.  Picture is my precious little niece, Avery!

We have a challenge for you, too.  Build something amazing of your own using only the Sweet As Spring mega kit (and your own photos, of course!) and upload it into our Sweet As Spring Challenge Gallery at DHD.  If you post your creation before April 17 you will be entered into another drawing for a $15 gift certificate to the DHD shop!  The challenge gallery will remain open after the contest to show off your gorgeous creations using this kit.

Now, here is my part for the coupon code.......4.

March Madness

I'm not much of a basketball fan, so forgive the title!  LOL!  I'm so ready for spring and all the snow we've had this month is killing me!  Tomorrow is the first day of spring and they're already calling for flurries in the morning!  Not fair!!  

These pics were taken from the beginning of March when we had a sudden mini snowstorm.  Pics were taken by McKenna with my cell phone on the ride home from volleyball practice.

Layout is created with March's House Party over at DHD called Fabulous and it's definitely FABULOUS!!

Be sure to stop by my blog tomorrow for the Design House Digital Blog Hop!

McKenna was in need of an updated photo for her acting resume when she tried out for the Abraham Lincoln production, so this is what we came up with!  She couldn't wait to put on one of her new shirts (from her new fave store Forever 21!).  Don't you just love that awesome frame?!

Created using the collab kit by Diane Rooney and Sarah Sullivan called Printemps at DHD!  So soft and pretty and perfect for spring photos!
