Jake's Favorite Things at GDS!

I've got a brand new kit in my shop at GDS this week. It is inspired by my little boy. It is full of things all little boys love. In fact, if you were to look in the pocket of any little guy you just might find some of these things. Marbles, rocks, leaves, bugs, etc.

Many of the pieces came directly from Jake's little treasure box or are things we found together when we were out walking. The marbles belonged to his Nani when she was a little girl. The pine cone was found at the park in Houston when he was visiting his grandparents there. The leaves came from our front yard.

There is a little story that I could tell you about nearly every piece included in the kit, but I'll stop now ;)

I don't have a freebie to give away today, but for those of y'all that watch my blog I'll come back in tomorrow night and pick one of comments to win a free copy. Be sure to leave me a way to get in touch with you in case you are picked.

Thanks for stopping by and peeking at the new kit. Stop by GDS later this week. I'll be giving a couple copies away for free. I'll update the blog when I start the giveaway. I look forward to your comments.

Come join in on the birthday fun at GDS tonight. I'm hosting a speed scrap and we're going to have a blast. If you play along you can get this Hoo's My Boy Add-On. It starts at 9:30 EST.

She used some great templates from Geeky Diva Designs.

See you at the speed scrap!

More news, a peek, and a freebie!

I don't think I really mentioned me and my pal Kimi of Kimi's Kreations have combined out creative teams yesterday. We've been scrapping and designing, and learning together almost from the very beginning. We both opened our first shops around the same time and have been dying to do a collab together ever since. Last month, when I proposed a collab to her, we both had the opportunity to join the Design Team at GDS and we both jumped on it!

Now a month later we've got our combined CT doing some amazing work for us, our first collab is all finished, and we've FINALLY been announced as designers at GDS. We are hoping to release the collab this weekend at GDS. Here is a little sneak peek.

Click on the image to get a chance to win a free copy. And in continued celebration of our merger, grand opening, and the upcoming release of our first collab I've got a little freebie for you. It coordinates with the collab.

If you haven't already, don't forget to hop on our blog train and make your rounds at the party. Leave our KgB girls some love, too, if you don't mind. They've done a wonderful job putting together all of those freebies.

Oh and my daily download is still up at GDS if you haven't already grabbed it. Also, my entire shop is 35% off until the 7th. You might want to stop by GDS this weekend, too. I hear something big might be happening!

Exciting BIG news!

Gosh its been a LONG time since I posted on my blog. I hope to remedy that and have a blog overhaul in mind. However, THAT is not the reason for this post.

I'm excited to announce that my good friend Kimi of Kimi's Kreation's and I have combined our CT's to form an awesome team of talented ladies. We've got even bigger news! We're both opening new shops at GDS !! We're so excited about it that we've both put together new kits to celebrate our merger and the new stores. Both of our shops at GDS will be on sale for 35% off for the next week.
(its not up quite yet, but please check back later for our shops openings!)

My new kit, It's a Party, is not your usual party kit! It is for grown-ups. Its perfect for scrapping your night out on the town, bachelorette parties, or just hanging out at home with some friends.
