More Digital Layouts

Here are some layouts using Brandi Beaver's kit Monkey Business.
For the first layout I used the template from scrapbookgraphics.com called playday. (couldn't find link) and the second I used a template from ptondesigns.blogspot.com that was offered for Mother's Day.
I just recently learned how to use templates and I have to say that I love the ease of using them. I still like to create my own ideas...but when you have such a fabulous look on a template - why not?

CT Member

I am a CT Member - which stands for Creative Team Member for Brandi. I am so excited. I will get digital kits from her before they are posted and do a few layouts - then when she posts her kit I post my layouts on various sites like DAC and DST. This is the first time that I have ever posted layouts on sites. Hopefully I can figure it out. I also can post the layout on here. Here is one I did using her portion of the Mega Kit : Out to Play.

I love her designs.

May Desktop Calendar

I have been finding Desktop Calendars for Digital Scrapbooking for a while now...but I thought I would take a crack at it....It has a picture from Christmas as I have yet to take/download more photos since....

I am using Brandi's Chase the Winter Blues Away.
The resolution isn't great since I did it through PowerPoint instead of at home with my PSE, but you get the idea.

DS pages

A co-worker of mine had sold her old house and was building a new one. We took in there rabbit for six months to take care of while it was being built. Emilia had such a great time caring for the rabbit. It was an interesting experience. But I know after having the bunny that I wouldn't want a caged animal to care for.

The first five people to respond to this post will get something made by me! Scary, I know! My choice. For you. This offer does have some restrictions and limitations.I make no guarantees that you will like what I make!What I create will be just for you.It'll be done this year.You have no clue what it's going to be. It may be a cool photo or an article that I think you will like. I may bake you something and mail it to you. Who knows? So, here is the catch. You must repost this on your blog and offer the same to the first 5 people who do the same on your blog.

Other Christmas Gifts

My darling husband also got me an egg separator and cooling racks off my list for Christmas. Yipee!


Wow! Has it really been September since my last post. Things have just gotten crazy.

For Christmas I got an external harddrive so I am busy catagorizing my digital files and hope to have more scrapbooking up soon. I have made a few jewelry pieces for Christmas that I couldn't talk about before that I will photographed and get up soon. I made a lovely (if I do say so myself) baby blanket for Lucas (my new nephew). I have a new sewing machine so I am going to teach myself to sew. I have a few skills as I did a few projects with my Gma and Mother growing up. But this will be the first time I have done anything by myself and it has sleeves and a zipper - Yikes!

We are going to be baking a little bit healthier around here. Trying to get in shape...ya know how it is. So what healthy foods do you like that are easy to prepare?? Send me a recipe so I can try it out. I am not doing any specific diet....just trying to be a little healthier. I have in years past made New Year resolutions, but this year I think I am just going to try and do better. I feel sometimes I set up goals and when I start to miss them instead of trying harder - I just give up. I don't have a # that I want to weight or a size I want to fit in - instead I would like to play with my children longer than a few minutes before getting winded. I would like to go see a movie and be able to fit into the seats again. I would like to be comfortable on an airplane (not that I plan on flying anywhere this year)
Oh and btw if you have a webkinz sign me up as a friend - I am under the name byrumnews....boy that site is addicting. Well got to go for now. Much love to all I hope the New year brings more joy than pain and more loss than gain (weight).
