P12 2014 - May Edition

Each month I've enjoyed adding to my stash for the year with Romajo's monthly kits.  This month is maybe one of my favorites!  Not only did Romajo come out with the May kit, she has released a Strings & Things and a Paint & Stamp set.  Which I LOVE!  I can't wait to include these in my upcoming monthly pages :)  Make sure you grab these while they are on sale this first week!!

Calm Serenity

So yesterday was my kids' school's Field Day.  I think I overdid it....While it was only about 80 degrees, the sun was brutal.  I have Multiple Sclerosis, so the heat can really get to me.  Needless to say, today's new release by Romajo is something that is certainly on my mind today!  Calm Serenity evokes the feeling of rest and relaxation and calmness.  Something my life doesn't always have enough of!  What can you scrap with it?  I caught these pictures of my kiddo's on our last trip to Southern California.  It was the night before our last day of vacation.  I can only imagine what they are dreaming of!

Calm Serenity is on sale this week in Romajo's store for 50% off!  And with prices like that, you can sit back, relax and scrap on!

Happy Mother's Day to all Moms out there!

In most parts of the world, tomorrow it's Mother's Day.  Do you have any special plans?  I consider every day Mother's Day - I expect my kiddos to show me love and appreciation every day of the year! Though I love the homemade gifts that come in abundance at this time of year.  Ada cannot wait to give me her presents she makes, so I've already received a handprint sign (done at a girl scout meeting so I helped with this one), a painted tile, a pretty potted seed (that is currently a very small plant), and a wonderful card that was filled out with how old she thinks I am, what she thinks my favorite food is, etc...  

Last week was (I)NSD and I am completely tired!  I spent the weekend getting freebies, shopping sales, and making about 30 digital layouts.  Busy weekend!  

Romajo has her Saturday Super Saver going on again this weekend!  This time it's a Mother's Day kit she created last year; Garden Party, Female.  She also has a new section in her shop called Saturday Super Saver, to 'save' you time in finding it!  The super deal is only available this weekend - on Monday the price of the kit will change to 50% discount (still a super deal if you ask me!)

She also has a couple freebies available this weekend - the first is the freebie offered last year when the kit was available and the second is the current Digi Express freebie template!  Head on over to her blog to get the links to the freebies

I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

May Day!  Did you celebrate May Day?  I remember giving (and receiving) May baskets when I was a little girl.  I always have these dreams of teaching my kids about the ring and run and leaving a little basket for the neighbors.  Alas, I'm usually too busy!  So - instead of May Day baskets, I'm bringing you news of freebies!  How's that for a May Day basket. LOL.

Romajo has participated in the May Digi Express Blog train again - you can receive a free template from her by hopping over to her blog.  She has a list of all the blog participants for you.

Here's a preview and my layout I made - using Romajo's Tranquility Beach kit.

I hope you enjoy the freebie!

And, here's a sneak peek of Romajo's new kit coming this weekend.  Along with it is another blog hop starting tomorrow!

Happy Scrapping!
