New Challenges at CraftyScraps to Begin May 1, 2010

Hello Everyone,

We are beginning new challenges at CraftyScraps starting on May 1, 2010. I will be hosting 2 challenges. One is a quote challenge. I love searching for the perfect quote to go with my layouts. We will do it a little backwards as I'll give you the quote and then you have to make your layout. I will be giving you a MiniKit Freebie each month to make your layout. There will be a small participation prize as well. So, you get 2 freebies. Here's a preview of the MiniKit we'll be using for this first Challenge on May 1. I hope you will come join me at to take part in this challenge.

The other challenge will be a Scraplift Challenge. A little different than the average one where you peruse the gallery and look for one to scraplift that is there. I will provid you with a link or a picture of something or a layout and then you will scraplift it into a layout. You will complete your layout with CraftyScrap kits and freebies. (i.e. Montly CT Caboose is perfect or any kit from the store). There will be a prize for participation.

I hope it sounds like fun to you. I am excited!

Hope to see you there!

Kingsbury Middle had their 3rd game Tuesday. They WON!!! :) Yeah!

Here's a page from the game:

This is made with Template from Humime @ Hummie's world.
The Kit used was Fields of Dreams by Becky Swayzee

Have a great week!



CraftyScraps has released a new kit -- Sunshine

Hello All,

I wanted to show you some layouts I made with Michelle's new Kit Sunshine available at  (see link to right ).

There's over 40 pieces in this kit! It's absolutely amazing!  You will be very happy with this kit! :)

Here's a few layouts to give you an idea of what you can do with this kit. 
All papers and elements are from this kit except some shapes that were a part of the templates used.

This one was created with influence from Hummie's Template #19 at

The next two were completed with templates from Becky Fleck @

Don't you just love the colors and the papers in this kit?  Michelle just recently lowered her prices in her store due to the state of the economy. She wants everyone to be able to preserve their memories in delightful ways. She's a gem, everyone, and she gives away so much stuff in her forum and her blog.  Check everything out at   You won't be disappointed.

Check back later this week, I'll have a quickpage for you.  If you want it right now be sure to visit Michelle's blog as she has a freebie QP up there right now for this kit!

Blessings for this new week!

Under Construction AGAIN! :)

Well, you know I couldn't leave my blog with cherries and have my roses, etc... on my logo so we needed an overhaul. It is a work in progress so look for some new changes.  Love to hear your feedback.  The roses are from GrannyArt...thank you for your generosity of your goodies.  Thank you to Pam for telling me about your website. We're gonna get Pam a blog sooner or later! :)

Have a Blessed Day!


Wednesday, April 7, 2010


Hello All,

Working on a new logo! :)  See what you think!  Next I have to get busy designing a new background to go with it.  I love my cherries though so I will keep it safely tucked away in order to use it again sometime! :)

I would appreciate your comments and feedback! :)

Happy Easter to all!


My sister is visiting from Illinois. We went to the park and had a picnic today for dinner.  KFC tastes really good at the park! :)  Of course, I had to take some pictures. My son took some of us as well.  I had to scrap them!  I made some quick pages to send to my Mom back in Illinois.

I used my frame from my Easter Blessings Kit. You can get some of it in a challenge kit at and if you want the hole kit you can join the challenge and hope to win through the drawing or you can buy it 50% off, which makes it only $1 who can beat that!? at the store at  The other page is done with my EggCitement blog train freebies as well as a flower from Michelle's Eggcitement kit (craftyscraps) the border is from somone's from the blog train as well. I am sorry for no credit but their name was not on the file...will have to research to find out and then I'll update this! :)

Hope your day was full of Easter Blessings!

Joy and Happiness,

I am part of a great team of ladies over there and Michelle McCoy the owner/operator is a dear, kind woman you couldn't meet a nicer person. Anywho, as she would say, that must be a Wisconsin thing! :)  On to the CT Caboose.

Here is the MegaKit Preview...can you believe all of this stuff?

You can get this kit for free when you go to the forums at and complete the challenge.  To complete the challenge you get the mini kit below:
