Val C Designs Spotlight at Oscraps!

Yes it has been a long while since I've posted, and my baby has gotten BIG, lol! I have been scrapping and having a nice time, though, and one exciting development that has happened this year is that both of the designers I CT for are now at the same site...yes, Val has moved to Oscraps! Right now she is being spotlighted there. Hurry over and play her challenge because she has several generous gift cards to hand out, and is offering her newest ART Book product for free during the challenge. Here is my layout for the challenge made with one of her shapes:

I hope to see you there at Val's Designer Spotlight Challenge!

Product Updates

Well, on January 11th I had my baby! Her name is Annora Jeanne and she is the sweetest thing in the world if you ask me.  (:  <3  She has certainly added a lot to our family. I can hardly believe it, but today she is six weeks old already!

She sleeps a lot and loooves to be held (of course), so I have been scrapbooking with her on my lap, or while I feed her, and it has been nice.

Val C Designs has released some products since my last post and her latest, another collab with Pink Reptile Designs, is possibly my favorite product I have in my stash right now! It is called Painting Rainbows.

Val and Mirjam each also have a FREE add-on on their facebook pages if you become a fan!

You can get this freebie at Val's Facebook Page:

And this on Mirjam's Facebook Page:

Here is a layout I did with the kit and Val's add on:

And one I did for a challenge on zigzagscrap's fun place that also includes a cluster made by fruitysuet with other zigzag products (sorry, I am not sure which products she used!) You can check out the challenge here:
And here is my layout, made with that cluster and the Painting Rainbow's kit:

Val also released this template pack which she has called Serie #1:
Here is a layout I did using one of those templates with "Typically You" a collab between Val C Designs and Erica Zwart:

One more thing that Val has put into her shop since my last update here is this bundle "Day After Day"
What I have done so far with Day After Day:

Maya de Groot over at Oscraps has also released a kit which is lovely called It Must Be Love:
This is what I have done with that kit, using a picture that is very special to me :
Other products Maya has recently added to her shop:

Thanks for looking!!

Huge layout update

As promised but a little later than I meant to be, I'm here to share my layouts. I like the idea of keeping most or all of them on here so I can look back and remember, and why not show them off all in one place, too. :)

I'll start with the remainder of the layouts I did while guesting with the New Release CT at MScraps in May. (Click links for the designer credits)

And here are layouts I have done for Maya de Groot at Oscraps. This first one also uses one of the store collabs...

...and this one I'm particularly proud of, done with a photo from the 1950's of my grandmother's little brother, the first page I've done with one of Gran'ma's pictures...
and another using Maya's designs...

And finally, layouts I have done for the talented and busy Val C. Designs (This layout was chosen for a GLOW at zigzagscrap!)

Thanks for looking!

Finally Back

I had an unexpected turn of events this past May. I found out that I'm pregnant again! This will be our third child, and no, we were not planning on this, LOL! I knew I was pregnant before I even took the test because of how terribly grumpy and sick I was. It was a miserable first four months. I stubbornly finished up the month at MScraps as best as I could, then had to take a break because I was unable to even take care of the "have to" things of life.

Anyhow, I started feeling better sometime in August, and I think I'm finally feeling like I am caught up enough on life that I can handle a few extra things. I'm very glad to be back. At least for a little while. :)

Soon I'll post the couple of layouts I've done recently, and maybe some of the ones I did before dropping off the face of the digi-scrap planet, too. :)

Oh, and by the way, we did find out recently that IT'S A GIRL! She is due on January 13th...just 3 1/2 months away!

Guest CT at MScraps for May

Well, well, well.  My life has been very crazy with other non-scrapbooking stuff, which has kept me a little too on my toes to want to blog, BUT I have been scrapping, quite a bit, actually. For the month of May I am guest CT at MScraps, which I am absolutely loving! Today is the first release of this month, so I can show you what I have done! The list of items being released today is incredibly long, because all the designers were rushing to get things out before INSD. So I had a very hard time choosing what I was going to work with. Four LO's this week for MScraps, and one for Val, I'm rolling! LOL!

Here are the ones for MScraps:
