Pixel Scrapper May 2017 Blog Train - Destination Florida

Wow!  I actually finished before the 1st!  I haven't done that in quite some time.  We had an open palette so I decided to use the same color palette from last month and continue on with the tropical theme.  The theme for May is "Destination" (hometown, state, etc...).  I chose Florida because that is where I live and have called this my home for the past 23 years.  I was born and raised in Ohio but when I scoped out the planning thread there were already several "Destination Ohio" kits so I didn't think one more was needed.  I was surprised to see so many Ohioan's in the forum though.  

Anyway, last month I gave you the fish, now you get the birds and palms.  I am in love with the paper I used for the background in my layout.  I think it turned out really nice.  I have included a few other papers which are under the banner in the preview, There isn't much to this kit so I hope it will be useful for something.  If I find time (no promises), maybe I can make up some buttons, bows, ribbons, frames to add to it later.  It's beach season so I plan on spending a lot of time at the beach this summer.  We went to the beach so much last summer, lugging everything from the car down to the beach by hand...I am prepared this summer!  We bought a wagon to carry everything...water cooler, food cooler, towels, blanket, pop-up dome for a little shade, boogie boards, inter-tubes, air pump, get the drift...there's a lot to haul.  This weekend is supposed to be in the 90's!

Pixel Scrapper January 2017 Blog Train - The Guys


I hope everyone had a great holiday!  Did you make any new resolutions for 2017?  I didn't....I never stick to them so I decided this year, I'm just going to roll with it.  Whatever happens....happens.  I joined a gym over 6 months ago and I try to get there every other day.  I always hit the treadmill and alternate the extra workouts (arms or legs).  I have been trying to concentrate on my arms because they are getting a bit saggy and my 16 year old made a comment to his dad about my "flabby" I have the motivation to take care of that!!  Sometimes I over-do it and can barely lift my arms but it WILL be worth it.  So...I am NOT calling this a resolution but more like motivation since both my son and hubby are lifting pretty heavy weights and bulking up so I refuse to be left behind on the fitness train, lol.

Here is my contribution to this months Pixel Scrapper blog train.  There are some really great contributions this month.  Since masculine kits are scarce, I thought this was a great idea and there are many different ideas on "The Guys" theme so I am sure you will find something among the many contributions to make some great pages.  You will find the link to download below and don't forget to stop by Pixel Scrapper to check out the rest.

Pixel Scrapper December 2016 Blog Train - At The Table

Hello Everyone!  Well, December is here...already!  Can you believe it?  I am having a hard time getting into the holiday spirit this year.  By now, I usually have the tree up, lights twinkling outside and all of the other decorations that take hours to put up in just the right spot.  I have a Christmas tree in the middle of the kitchen/office/living room.  No lights, no decorations, no tinsel.  I am not depressed or sad or anything like that...I'm just so darn busy at work.  Lately, I live there (at least I feel like I do).  Since my posts have now decreased to once per month (and usually late for the train), I want to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy & Safe New Year!!

Here is this months contribution to the Pixel Scrapper Blog Train.  Enjoy!

Pixel Scrapper September 2016 Blog Train - Keep It Moving

Here I am.  Late again.  I have a good excuse though....I've been going to the gym and working out.  My time is becoming more limited and the kits get smaller but I'm not ready to stop designing altogether.  I haven't had as much practice as I need and I'm definitely not up to date on what is and is not liked in a scrapbook kit these days.  If anyone would like to leave any suggestions on what you prefer to see in a kit, please leave a comment.  I want to create stuff that will be used.  Enjoy.

Pixel Scrapper August 2016 Blog Train - Back To Nature

Sorry I'm late!!  Typical everyday life never ends when you have teenagers.  Anyway, you would think with boys this kit would have inspired me a little more but I just couldn't get into it this time.  I managed to create a couple of templates from vectors I purchased and made a flashlight and binoculars...hehehe.  I was a little excited when I finished the templates.  They are tucked away on my external HD as well as my virtual HD.  I am determined NOT to lose everything I manage to create for my stash.  It's happened too many times, I've actually lost count.  It's heartbreaking.  So here is my part to contribute to the blog train this month.

Pixel Scrapper July 2016 Blog Train - Blue Skies & Lemonade

Wow!  Time is really flying.  I blinked and June was over.  I found this palette and theme a little tough for me this month.  I had a hard time getting started.  I kept checking to see what others were coming up with for some inspiration but nothing really popped.  What I ended up with is coming from memories when I was a kid.  Being happy and bubbly, being outside with friends, gulping lemonade or other cool beverage (usually Kool aid) and just being kids.  We loved going to the corner store with a pocketful of pennies and getting a bag of penny candy.  Enjoy!
