Another Round of New Pages!

This is my favorite time of the year. It’s also my favorite color palette. I am already enjoying scrapping with fall themes and colors. I hope you don’t get sick of me sharing pages of our fall frolics! LOL

Since the kits for fall come out BEFORE I do anything this year, I’m scrapping past years

First up:

designs by Mandy King

I just absolutely adore this page. It came together so well and I was THRILLED with the results .

It warms my heart to see Melissa with her Daddy. From day one, they have had a connection that brings me to happy tears. He is an amazing Daddy and husband. I’m so glad we get to spend the rest of our lives together! What a gift!

Latest Pages!

These first two were done by the same kit and the same template. The first one is pretty much as the template was, but I added the cluster on the top and the journaling. The second is moving every thing around.

This fun one is of Melissa and her friend Riley – they are so cute together!

Created by Jill – Missing You Fusion Kit

Many times, digital scrapbooking meets a need for a page, and sometimes it’s as if the kit was made just for a memory and a kit. This is one of them.

Missing You Fusion Kit – Created by Jill

Missing You – The DigiChick


I have so many pictures that I have found of our family since my Father died, but I’ve added many more since my Mom died.

My mom was the family historian, and she had books and books of photos. This is one of them of her. It’s her graduation day and it just took my breath away. It’s a weird experience to look at pictures of my Mom before I existed.

Jill’s kit couldn’t have been any more perfect to scrap this photo – both for the theme of the kit, and the colors. It matched perfectly with the photo, and I certainly do miss my Mama. This just screamed my name.

I also want to encourage you to scrap the “messy” stuff. I’ve never felt more proud of my work, and never had such catharsis as I have in using Jill’s kits to work through the emotional baggage of losing my Mom suddenly. I look at the pages that I have made and they are pages that I am thrilled with the most. I can’t wait to put them all in a book and get them printed up. 

So…go get it!
