All Dressed Up & Somewhere to Guest!!!

Hi everyone, wow this last month has been busy for me. School is always frantic this time of year and I have been preoccupied with the world of work rather than scrapping of late. Still only 1 more week to go and then I have the whole summer stretching out in front of me followed by an autumn trip to Disney at the end of it. Then thats followed by christmas, what a great way to see a year out.

I am still. working hard on my 2009 Disney album and the new release from Wyld Web Designs this weeks helped me to get two gorgeous pages scrapped. Dressup darlings was just made for my daughters Bibbiddi Bobbiddi Boutique photos it could not have been more perfect. IT is the ideal kit for scrapping all those dressing up photos and girly shopping trips. But some of the amazing CT ladies created some awesome boy layouts with this kit too so head over to Gingerscraps to check out all the possibilities.

As well as having this gorgeous kit to tell you about. I also need to tell you that I have been accepted as a summer guest by The Design Girl over at Scrapmatters. I feel so blessed to have the opportunity to work with such great designers it really does keep me motivated to scrap and to aim for high quality layouts every-time. Danielle has such wonderful designs and I am really enjoying creating for her. Here is a taste of my layouts so far.

Aren't they just adorable. It is sure going to be a fun summer!
Finally before I go I wanted to tell you all about the exiting Speed Scrap Minnie Marathon
Weekend taking place over at Mousescrappers on the 24th/ 25th July.

With the perfect blend of traditional Christmas colors as well as a few more updated ones mixed in, this MEGA kit is an eclectic blend of classic and modern styling that will compliment practically every magical holiday memory you've captured.

These are available to buy as a bundle at one great price, the accent labels are not available separately.

And with all this talk of winter Jen hasn't forgotten what time of year it really is. These
Summer Splash Masks are great fun and perfect for your beach and pool layouts, or if you're Disney mad like me your water rides! Lol!

Enjoy your day whatever season you're celebrating!

Christmas in July Blog train

We are officially half way to Christmas woohoo. I love Christmas it is my absolute favourite time of year. I love everything about it, decorating the tree, wrapping pressies, making cards, spending time with family and friends. For me it really is a magical time. One of my favourite things to do at Christmas is cooking up lots of goodies to share with the visitors to my home. They also make cute gifts as well and it is also neat to pass on family recipes for a truly personal gift.
Krisi from Krisi's Kreations obviously feels the same as me because she has just released a fantastic set of recipe cards and a gorgeous box to put them in. If you buy the recipe card templates before the 15th July you get a set of free decorated Christmas Recipe cards as an extra. You don't want to miss these, they make a perfect Christmas gift. I am going to make a whole bunch for all the special females in my family and give them as gift along with some homebaked goodies. Thanks Krisi for helping me get my gift giving sorted early.

You should have arrived here from Krisi's blog ad your next stop is Jennifer's blog
Here is my recipe card, enjoy :)
