New things and new kits

Is it me or is circles the new thing around? I see so many pages with circle theme and now a challenge at oscraps. I went kind of circles over board, LOL!


Paper and elements from Once by Paislee Press
New leaf by Paislee Press and Audacious Designs.
Wordart by Sue Cummings
And I've been having a discussion on the kits by Lori Davison. Now she is not a new designer, by no means, but I just discovered her through her new kit on bumblebees. Her kits are on the expensive side and are most suited to extractions. I was not sure if they were for me, so a friend advised me to try out a freebie she has on Scrapbookgraphics site. And so I did.

Blue Energy

I was trying out an action from Coffee Tea Photography called Denim. It turns the picture B&W except the blue. So what do you think?

Spring pages

I can't help myself, with the fine weather, I have this thing about spring pages. Maybe because a lot of the new kits and challenges are about spring, but all my new pages have this theme going on.

I lifted Seestern's Rodelspass,
I love the way she incorporated the extractions into the scene, so I tried to do that too.

I never knew what DD1 thought when her baby sister came to play with her toys again. Somehow I don't think she was too thrilled everytime...

On my DD2's first birthday her older sister had a deal of a lifetime. She helped unwrap the presents, her baby sister kept the paper and she kept the toys.
This was the only year this scheme worked.

Using templates

For the albums I make for the girls I often use templates if I want to make a page of a series of photo's or an event. I made two last week for DD1's album and I really like how they have turned out. They look more like traditional scrappers pages than most of the ones I do and it is a nice change. Besides, I had scrappers block and templates always works wonders for that.

My DD1 a few years ago at a concert by the belgian band K3. She loved it.
