Little Man

Oh my goodness...the world of little boys! As a mother of three girls, this world is a little foreign to Wendy but luckily she has an awesome nephew that she refers to as "Little Man" so he was the inspiration for this kit. There are so many fun things in this kit that you could easily use it over and over again to scrap the little boys in your life. She has covered everything from dinosaurs to cowboys to robots and fishing! You'll find it all in this HUGE kit.

Inside you'll find 124 Unique Ellies, a Full Alpha and 24 Unique Papers to delight you! Best of all, it's 50% off until Monday at SNP!

Check out what our CT made with this kit!
Here's a look at the freebies you can pick up on Wendy's blog on Friday.

Brighter than the Sun!

Mel is the featured designer at Gotta Pixel right now and has this fabulous new kit out:

Brighter than the Sun is such a bright, fun and energetic kit!  It's perfect for so many things and I loved to work with it!

In this layout, I went the classic route and used photos of my kids in the middle of summer getting wet at a local splash park.  They had such fun!!!
I used a template from Simply Tiffany Studios because of the fabulous swirls.  They were just the right feel for the streams of water ...

I hope you like it!

Family Memories *PNP Freebie*

Wendy has changed up her blog posts by condensing the layouts in to slideshows.  You may have noticed that from my previous post.  If you look through the slideshow, you may be able to find my layouts for inspiration, but in case you missed them, here they are again!

This seemed like a heritage-themed kit ... all that old-fashioned stuff.  You could use it for so many things, but I wanted to be sure and capture some of my heritage.  
This is my grandmother ... and she is now a Great Grandmother!  For decades, the letters on her license plate were GGJ.  We used to joke that it stood for Great Grandma Jean.  And that was even before I was grown up enough to have kids and make it possible!
I made sure that I included the little shoe from the kit.  My grandma LOVES shoes!
The plaque element in the title has the quote from Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice, 'You must allow me to tell you how ardently I admire and love you.' ~Mr. Darcy.  I thought it was appropriate!
The background paper and flowers are from Prejudice by Wendy Tunison, Worn Papers and Cluster Frames by Wendy Tunison, plaque and shoe from Pride.
Alpha from Busy Bee by A+Designs.

I turn 30 this year.  It's an interesting birthday because so much has been made of it by our culture, but it doesn't feel any different - better or worse - than any other year.  It's as if I'm approaching this huge milestone and wondering what on earth all the fuss is about.  This layout has a picture of me at 9 months and me just before my birthday (I think I may use a replace the picture, but this is the only one of me taken this year ...).
All papers and elements are from Pride by Wendy Tunison.  Alpha from Heaven Sent by A+Designs.

This is a special family picture that I have been saving until the right layout.  This kit felt like it had  the right amount of elegance for it.  The picture was taken at a wedding in October 2010 in a gorgeous little garden.  You can't really see it, but my dress and my hubbie's tie are just the right color to match the papers ... my son's purple shirts stand out more, though!
The only thing not from Prejudice is the glitter leaves from Pride.  I didn't include a title because I couldn't think of one that would enhance it ...

And here is the freebie I made for you. It is a little simple, but original. I wanted a circular frame for my layout and didn't have one, so I made one from the rhinestones in the kit! Enjoy!

So Thankful

I am so thankful for the little moments that I get to share with my kids.  It's the time like these that just fill my heart with happiness :)
I just popped in and took some pictures of my kids playing together.  All three of them.  So happy and calm.  Peace and playfulness are a wonderful combination!
