So the world didn't end!

It's coming to the end of the 21st December and I'm happy to announce that we are all still here! just as well I'd hate to see all those beautifully wrapped gifts under my tree go to waste! I am happy to say that I am now finally ready for Christmas.  It's been crazy busy around here with house cleaning, present wrapping, last minute gift shopping, grocery shopping andfestive socialising. I've already began eating and drinking far too much I am really going to need a healthy lifestyle kick in January! Tis the season to be merry though so I am definitely not worrying about it until the new year.

With all of that going on I am quite amazed that I found time to scrap but scrap I have and I have some gorgeous layouts to share with you this week.

First up Britt released some quirky new templates this week. They are lots of fun and definitely got me to think outside the box with my scrapping. I enjoyed the challenge and love how my pages turned out using these.

Next up is a gorgeous set of double templates from Andrea. I have not had time to do justice to both of these this week but I already have a layout in mind for the second template and cant wait to get started.

Well that is literally all I have time for so can I just take this opportunity to wish you all a very merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Catch you in 2013!!

A Little Winter Gift

Hi everyone hope you are all having a great weekend.

Today I have a neat little Sunday School project for you. If you head over to the Little Green Frog Designs Blog you will find a tutorial by me on converting Andrea's templates into Facebook Cover sized template so that you can get creative with your profile.

I used Andrea's December Facebook Freebie template and Britt-ish Designs newest kit Winter Sparkle to create this gorgeous wintery cover photo for my profile and guess what?

You can have it too! Andrea and Britt both kindly said that I could use their products to create a Facebook Cover QP for you. How sweet is that?

So go ahead, what are you waiting for? Click to download and go and add some frosty fun to your Facebook profile!

Happy Holidays everyone!

So Dreams Really Do Come True!!!

When I first starting digital Scrapping back in 2009 it was to create a vacation album of our Disney Trip. Searching the net I discovered Mousescrappers and not long after that Britt-ish Designs. Britt quickly became my favourite go to designer. Her kits always inspired me and they were just perfect for the magical photos I was scrapping. I got to meet Britt in Disney World back in 2010 and she was just the sweetest person. I have been such a huge fan of hers since the beginning and I dreamed of being on Britt's CT. I mean what an amazing job getting to be a Britt Girl and work with her awesome designs. I kept waiting for a CT call and the chance to apply but it never came. I mean seriously she has such an amazing team why would she need to hold a call!

A few weeks ago a conversation about going for what you want rather than waiting for it to come to you inspired me to email Britt. I figured what have I got to lose by asking if she had any CT spaces or maybe even a wait list. Well guess what she emailed me right back and said that a space had just opened up on her team and that my timing was perfect and she invited me to join her CT!! Talk about excited, I seriously thought I must be dreaming. I am so proud to be a Britt Girl; dreams really do come true!

So without further ado I am excited to show the first kit I got to work with as part of Britt's CT.

Winter Sparkle
It's just so pretty isn't it? As soon as I saw it I was inspired it made me think of not only the obvious snowy day scenes but the beautiful blue sparkly lights all over Cinderella's Castle and Blizzard Beach at Disney World or the Wild Arctic area in Sea World with the polar bears and the penguins. Britt even made the cutest Mickey Snowflakes for all your Disney inspired pages too so don't forget to snag those over on her blog. I had so many ideas rushing around my head that I actually scrapped four pages. As always I had the most wonderful templates from little Green Frog Designs to help make my layouts awesome too.

Blowing off the cobwebs!

Phew has it really been a year since I last posted here!  I seriously can not believe that. I had to take some time out, there was a lot going on in my personal life and I had to step away from the community for  a while. Guess it was just a lot longer than I planned!

I have been scrapping behind the scenes and in my break I managed to finish my 2010 Disney album. I'm now working on 2012 and hope to finish this in the next couple of months, which will mean that I will be all up to date on Disney Vacation scrapping! that will be a weird feeling but I am looking forward to being able to spend the whole of next year just working on my family pictures and maybe my heritage album too.

Before I took my break I had an awful lot of CT commitments. I loved working for each and everyone of my designers but it became too much. Scrapping was becoming a job rather than a hobby and it was stressful so i've cut down on my commitments and now just CT for Little Green Frogs Designs. I couldn't let that one go, Andreas templates are just too amazing for words and in all honesty I couldn't scrap without them.

So without further a do here are Andrea's yummy new releases, i'm covering last week and this week because I missed my blog post last week and all these template packs are still currently on sale with a 20% discount.

I love these template packs and they were so much fun to scrap with!  Wait till you see what is in store next week and I know that Andrea has some amazing templates ready for DSD weekend that you do not want to miss!
