I Do by Brenian Designs.

Last month my little brother got married. It was a beautiful ceremony. Since it was out of state my husband and older daughter did not get to come for expense reasons so the first time that my daughter saw her new Aunt in her wedding dress was a few weeks later at an Open House. She was fascinated! That is what inspired the photo for my first layout using an elegant kit called I Do by Brenian Designs. It is available at The Digi Sisters Store here.
Here is a preview. 
Here are my pages. 

I could not resist also making a page from my own wedding....

She's back!!!

Hello Friends,

As I am sure many of you know Michelle, from Crafty Scraps, had to take a break due to health issues lately. Well, she is back! She will be taking things slowly to insure that she does not over due. However, many challenges will be starting up again next month at the Forum! She is also still selling her kits at Scrapbook Max and you can always purchase them there.
I will be hosting the Brag Book Challenge at the Forum again starting in August and I hope that you will join me. It is a great challenge. You get a kit at the discounted price of only $.50 and then you get a copy of all the brag book pages that all the participants create!  How cool is that!

Love my Dog by Simple Girl Scraps

Happy Saturday everyone!!

Today I have a really cute kit to show you! When I first saw this kit I though 'oh how cute! Too bad we do not have a pet dog. oh well.' But then I really looked at it and realized how versatile it really is! I just love the I heart U word art and the red paper!! I did end up making a dog layout though since I was able to find a picture of our neighbors dog and just love the dog accessories in this kit! So, here is the kit review and my layout! The kit is available here

I wanted to quickly share about a great challenge going on at DSDI this month. It is called The Works challenge. (You need to be a registered member of the DSDI Forum to participate). I discovered it because the host this month is Simple Girl Scraps and I am a follower of her blog (and now on her CT. Yea!)

The great thing about this challenge is you get an adorable Independence day mini to use!! If you are like me you have a TON of new pictures from all the festivities last weekend and could use an adorable addition to your kits!

Check out how cute this mini kit is (it is an add-on to her kit The Fourth).

Here is the full The Fourth kit (available at the DSDI store).
