Good morning - I realized overnight that I might have had my freebie saved incorrectly yesterday.  It's updated now, so if you downloaded yesterday you might want to re-download.  I'm fairly new at this type of thing so am still trying to remember all the steps.  I had my free cards saved as a jpeg instead of a png - which I've only just realized can be important!  LOL  I hope you are having a good weekend!

Hello - it's Saturday!  And, not only is it Saturday, but it's a "special Saturday" in the eyes of my daughter.  Whenever my husband and son go camping for Scouts, my daughter and I have a "special Saturday" where we do anything we want to!  On the calendar for today is "Momma morning" - shoe shopping, organizing a girl scout craft, and mopping the kitchen (yes, sigh...LOL)  Then it's on to the highlight of the day "Ada afternoon".  She crammed as much in as she could - we're enjoying Panera for lunch, Frozen as our afternoon entertainment, games, painting nails, an episode of Cupcake Wars while we enjoy pizza for dinner, reading and then a movie in Mom's bed and sleeping in the same bed for the night.  She has been counting it down and is so excited to wake up! 

Now that Spring is here, I didn't have to worry about the weather for our special day!  It's been nice to see the trees blooming and the grass starting to weed up - we had a long rough winter!  Which is why I love seeing scrap kits with all these lovely spring colors in them!  Romajo has her March edition of P12 2014 out today. ( And it's half off for the first week.  ( In addition to the March kit, she has added some more basic papers.  Snag them to keep your monthly kits up to date! 

I pulled out a March picture of my son when he was 11 months old.  I've been in a nostalgic mood recently as he slowly creeps up closer and closer to looking me in the eye!

I also created two more March cards for those of you who like the Project Life style of scrapping, or just want to use them as an element on your page.  I hope you enjoy!

And, whatever is planned for your Saturday, I hope you make it Special!
oh, and PS - if you like free, watch for a little something coming April 1!

Hello!  Spring is trying to break through.  After the winter most of the United States had, I am sure everyone is ready for Spring to finally arrive.  Here in Texas our Spring is confusing - one day will be in the high 80s and the next might be in the 50s. It's hard to know how to dress and prepare!  But, I know Spring is here.  The trees are starting to bloom and the weeds are popping up left and right in our yards!

Spring colors are always so much fun in my opinion.  They are versatile and can be used for all sorts of layouts.  Romajo has a new kit out called Lucky Scraps.  Perhaps you participated in Romajo & team's blog hop this past week and got some freebies?  Now is your chance to grab the kit and make some goodies yourself!  The kit is half off this first week and can also be purchased in a bundle for only $3.75!!  What a steal.  Here is a link to Romajo's store and blog to read more about the kit!

And, here is the layout I made with the kit.

Happy Monday!  It was a crazy weekend here in Texas.  It was my husband and my 12th anniversary on Saturday.  We tried something new - a murder mystery dinner theater.  It was funny and clever and I'm pretty sure I knew who "did it" but didn't want to burse the bubble of some of the more enthusiastic people at our table who thought it was someone else.  Ever have one of those moments?  LOL.  The weekend was nice but went really fast.  Back to the real world!

Coming this Saturday is a great spring/St Patrick's day kit from Romajo.  Take a peek!

Also, just a note that starting this week the Romajo Creative team will have a blog hop for you with items made from this new kit!  And, yes, I'll have a little freebie for you. Check back on Thursday!

Hello!  It's spring break where I am and I have been enjoying the week tremendously!  Kids were off M-F, but I took Tuesday & Thursday off to hang out at home with them.  We went and saw the Lego Movie (FINALLY! as Asher stated).  Have you seen it?  I loved it!  I tried to snap a picture when we got there but the lights were too low it didn't turn out.  I hope to make a spring break layout and I guess I'll have to just use a picture from the movie. 

What did you do for spring break?

I haven't gotten much scrapbooking done this week, though I got plenty done last weekend when I went away to scrap again. I love my weekends away!  While I was gone, Romajo had a new release that you're going to love!  It's great for a Prince Layout or a Scout layout - which was exactly what I thought when I saw the preview for the first time.  I think it really highlights the picture of Asher & me in our matching uniforms!  It's still on sale so grab it if you'd like at Marieke's store:

You can find additional layouts at Romajo's blog:

Happy Spring Break!

Good morning,

What?  It's March?  Oh my!  And we're getting another cold front this weekend.  Typcially those come in February and now we're in March.  It will hopefully be the last!  I know there are some folks still digging themselves out from snow so Spring may feel a million miles away, but maybe just seeing the beginnings of spring will help if you're once again under cold & snow!

Romajo has 2 things out this week.  One was her February digi blog hop freebie, if you missed it, you can grab it in her store now.  It's on sale for the first week

Here is the preview and a couple layouts I made with it.  I LOVE those dogs. 

The next spring announcement is Spring Beginnings from Romajo.  All these lovely things are FREE!  The kit (papers & elements are available on Romajo's blog ( ).  The solid papers & glitter sheets are available on her facebook page ( ).  And if you go to her shop, you can find the flairs ( ).  Now let Spring arrive!!

Now, speaking of Spring, I'm off to do a little Spring Cleaning. LOL
