Another RAK from Val

I have good news for you! Once again Val has done a collab kit with Sue Cummings. I did a layout with it tonight and I LOVE it! So you're going to want to go over to her blog and post a comment for a chance to win it.

Good luck!

Snap LO

Going back through a couple of Maya's previous kits, and I made a double layout with "Snap". It was pretty labor intensive trying to get all the poor quality pictures to look decent, and the whole thing took forever because the file was so large with so many pictures on the page. But I am glad I persisted; I think I am happy with the end result.

A couple of last minute things tonight...and a GSO for me!

Firstly Che Yang Designs is doing a RAK for her kit which is to be released tomorrow (Friday April 8th) at MScraps.
Visit For a chance to win it, you can leave a comment there on her blog before she chooses a winner tomorrow. :) I've done so; wish me luck!

Secondly, I mentioned before that Zig Zag Scrap was opening their new forum today, and yes, they did. Check it out! 
 They're calling it the fun place, and it is already buzzing with fun Eastery activity...they had an egg hunt today and everything...I think there is about an hour left for that at this point! Come join us and have fun!

And thirdly, I am excited about it so I thought I'd toot my own horn a little...I got a GSO at MScraps for a layout I did earlier this week! It's my first GSO there. Thanks Suzie! It's a scraplift of a layout by MaggieMae. :)

Having fun with MScraps challenges; Zig Zag opening a forum!

I've been feeling happy scrapping lately. So I have been doing quite a bit of it. I did 7 of the monthly challenges for March on MScraps, which is a lot for me compared to other months! One of these days I'd like to actually get them all done. Maybe it could happen this month--I really like all of the challenges! I've already posted one of them here, and one of the challenges was for a photograph, so here are the other five (Click the links below each LO for credits):


"One More Time"
"Textured Paper"

"Yellow Submarine R"

"Outside Shower"

"Lucky to Have My Sister"

I also did a challenge at DSC again, using one of the pictures of Callia swimming in St. Maarten. Pictures from that vacation are my favorite right now! Strangely, I got the inspiration for this LO while I was away from the computer. I had downloaded the word art and waited a couple of days before using it. An idea popped into my head and I went to the computer and put it together. Strange? Yes, I think so. It took quite a bit of playing around with details, but in the end turned out just as I hoped it would.

"Ocean Moment of Joy"

In other news, kind of fun, Zig Zag Scrap where Val has her store, is opening up a forum starting this Thursday, April 7th. It sounds like they are going to have challenges and give-aways and I am really looking forward to it! I got their newsletter today and it was looong and beautiful! If you're not already on their newsletter mailing list, you might want to sign up! They choose a "GLOWinner" each week from layouts in their gallery and give them points for their store....I was even chosen one week as I mentioned before, although I didn't get the newsletter at the time and didn't know about the reward until too late. Oh, well! Anyhow, I like their newsletter, AND it seems like it will be a good time over there with the opening of their forum.  Zig Zag Scrap

 And no, I didn't have to advertise for this LOL! Nobody even asked me to. I literally think it's going to be fun. :)
