New Layouts Coming Soon!

It's been quite a while since I've posted any new layouts. And it's one of the reasons I'm so excited to go to PAAT this weekend. Last year I got 8 layouts done as well as a few cards and I can't wait to see if I can get even more done this year. I am taking my Basic Grey page of the month kits with me and I am going to try and get them done. They are for 'all about me' pages and I don't have any pics for them yet, so it will be a first for me to do a layout without the pictures. We'll see. I also want to work on getting some hockey and school layouts done and maybe some older pictures from my pre digital camera days. I was so busy with hockey this year, I took very few pictures in the last 6-7 months. Needless to say, my kids will be sick of the camera by the end of the summer. LOL

I hope everyone enjoys all the wonderful National Scrapbooking Day activities planned online this weekend. Check out Kindred Creations and Lovebug Scrapbooking as they both have things planned for May 2nd.

Just 10 More Days...

... until the Paper Arts A Thon (PAAT)! I am going with my sister and we are so excited. PAAT was started 3 years ago by a wonderful group of ladies as a way to raise money for charity. It is a 20 hour crop for all types of paper crafters and instead of a registration fee, they ask you to collect pledges for the charity they have chosen. They also have make and takes, ticket auctions and raffles and the prize donation list has over 60 names on it already. We went last year and had a wonderful time and met some amazing crafters. Here are the details:

Specifics of PAAT 2009

When: May 2nd and 3rd, 2009
Where: Family Life Center, Middleton, NS
Time: 9 am Saturday (registration starts)
Paper Arts A Thon begins at 10:00 am and runs to 6 am Sunday
(You do not have to stay for the full event. We suggest you stay as long as you feel able.)

Charity of Choice: Prostate Cancer Research Foundation of Canada

And here is a picture of one of the items that are being raffled off, isn't it adorable!

Another Source for Free Blog Backgrounds

I just discovered the Background Fairy and I love the free blog backgrounds they have. The ones I saw had a shabby chic feel to them and I just couldn't resist trying out the aqua and cream script one. I hope you enjoy the change too.

DT Search at Creatively Yours

I'm sad to say my term as a member of the design team is nearly up at Creatively Yours. I have been so inspired by the wonderful sketches Noella and Ali create! However, my loss means that they are now looking for a new DT for the next 6 month term. Head on over to Creatively Yours to read all about their DT search and try out for it. I guarantee you won't regret it.

Creatively Yours Sketch #53

I really love how my layout turned out for Creatively Yours sketch # 53 . I haven't been taking a lot of pictures lately, so I've been going back and using pictures I took before we got a digital camera. This picture is from December 2006 and I love how it worked in this sketch.

Brand New Kit Up at Kindred Creations

My newest kit has just been uploaded to the Kindred Creations store. It is called Chocolate Ice and it originally started out as a boyish kit, but my daughter loved the colours so much I added some girly elements too. I hope you like it!
