My daddy, My hero by Kates Digital Designs

As we await the New Year and new designs, I had the opportunity to play with an earlier kit from Kate's Digital Designs.  My daddy, My hero is the perfect kit to scrap pictures of the men in your life. This mini kit is full of soft blues, greens, and browns. The kit is specifically designed to highlight the relationship between boys and their fathers, but would be great for a variety of layouts. The kit includes 7 patterned papers, 5 solid papers, and 15 elements.  It is available at My Life and Scrap

Here are two layouts I did.  One is my father and the other my father in law.

Pretty Little Studios

If you check back, Mia told you about our wonderful December sponsor, Pretty Little Studio. Stop by and see all her goodies to choose from.   We got some goodies to use and I had these cool numbers. Since I recently did a kitchen renovation, I decided to do progression layout using the cute number stickers.


I just put a number over each picture in the order it happened. I also put my title on one of the tags she sent us.  The journaling strips are digitally added. No mess with journaling strips, I justed added them with Photoshop Elements. Way cool!!! 

Don't forget to join our challenge.  You might win the prize!!!

Peace on Earth by Jeanine DeOre

Jeanine has just released her latest kit- Peace on Earth!!! The colors are rich greens and reds with lots of glitter.

Along with that, you can purchase her word set.  You can have a page together in just minutes!!!

They are available at ScrapMatters
Here is an idea for easy quick ornaments using your paper scraps. These scraps are from the MM Mistletoe collection from last year and I had saved small pieces just for this idea (yeah, right!!!)
I used a 2 inch circle cutter, but you can use any size you want. If you have double size paper, then it is really quick, but if it is one sided, that's ok, because you just need to glue one side to the other.

Fold the circle in half and take two circles and use quick dry glue to join the folded circle together at the folds. Once dry, open them up

Use ribbon or string to add hangers. You can also use stickles or glitter if you want. How easy is that???
