Merry and Bright by Melidy Designs

Melissa with Melidy Designs has a lovely new kit available for you today, Boxing Day.  I will admit, that while I've heard of Boxing Day and every now and then I look up the definition, I had to look it up once again today!   The definition I found that seems to be the same one I've read about every time I've lookd it up is that it was traditionally a day off for servants and the day when they received a "Christmas Box" from their employer.  The servants would also go home on Boxing Day to give "Christmas Boxes" to their families.

I like that definition, though whether it's the full extent of the day I don't know, and I don't know many people who have a set of servants like what the definition is referring to, but it is a National Holiday in the UK (possibly other places?).  I enjoy any days that are considered holidays!

Anyway, look at this lovely kit available today at Melissa's store.  You can read more about it on her blog.

And here's what I made with it.  Each year we have a visit from two very special Elfs (we hit 9 years this year :) )  I started making a small album for their visits each year, which seem to get crazier with each year they come!  This will be my cover for this past Christmas season's antics!  I also used a template from Melidy Designs (Day & Night; Template 4)

Anyway, whether you're celebrating Boxing Day or not, I hope you have an absolutely wonderful Saturday!

Glory of...Joy!

I hope that each of you who celebrates Christmas had a wonderful day yesterday.  Mine was full of too much food and the kids' was full of too much fun!

On Christmas Eve, Designs by Romajo released her last "Glory of" bundle for 2015.  This month's version is Glory of Joy.  Right now the bundle is on sale for only $3.00.  Romajo is having a sale on all of her single packs from her Glory of series.  They are all on sale for $1.00 for the rest of 2015!  Be sure to check them all out in her store over at With Love Studio.  Majority of the single packs will all be expiring at the end of the year, and you'll only find them available in the bundles so if you need to grab something on a smaller scale, now is the time to do it!

Here's a preview of the kit and a page I've made with it.  My page was also made with a December template from Designs by Romajo.

  I hope you all have a wonderful restful day!

#FabFall: Scary Night

Halloween at our house is an interesting time.  My kiddos always know what they want to be for Halloween months (sometimes an entire year) in advance.  Unfortunately we always seem to have such a busy schedule with sports and other activities that I never feel like we get the full experience of Halloween.  It doesn't help that we don't usually have cooler weather (who wants to go to a pumpkin patch when it's 89 degrees out?!?)    Anyway, it's always hard for me to find pictures to scrap for Halloween, but when I saw this new kit by Designs by Romajo - #fabfall: Scary Night I just knew this picture of my son when he was little was perfect.  It's a cute/scary kit!  I hope you check it out!

It's got some beautiful papers and adorable elements!  Just perfect for those little spooky moments you have this time of year!

Here's the layout with the picture of my now 5'2" 11 year old!  What a cutie and I feel like time goes so quickly when I start scrapping these older photos!

I hope everyone has a fun filled day!

#fabfall - Corn Picking by Designs by Romajo

Hello all!  I've been MIA for a while.  Been so super busy!  First we went to Omaha for a week at the end of summer, then the kids started school, and then I went to Disneyland to meet with some fellow Mousescrappers to run the Disneyland 10K and have a few days of fun in the Parks!

Now that fall is here and things seem to be slowing down (or I'm numb from all the chaos, I'm not sure!), I have some time to finally scrap again on a regular (somewhat) basis, and get caught up with some things!

Designs by Romajo has this adorable kit; #fabfall - Corn Picking, available in her store today (half off for this first week).

I  made this page using pictures taken on my Dad & Stepmom's property a couple years ago.  I wish we had this much space!

I hope everyone is having a wonderful fall so far.  The weather has started to cool down, and we're getting some much needed rain this weekend (although probably a bit too much at one time!)  A good weekend to stay inside and scrap :)

With the bright, bold colors and fun food elements this is the perfect kit for scrapping all your favorite fast food joints, whether at home or on the go!

She also has a new template pack going into the store today! I LOVE her templates!  And this one really grabbed me because of all the photo spots and the straight lines!  Insta-scrapped: Volume 1 was created with Instagram photos in mind, but the blocked style can be used for a wide variety of layouts:

Insta-Scrapped: Volume 1 by Melidy Designs

Here's the page I scrapped using the new additions:

Melissa has a new kit hitting the store today, perfect for all your delectable dining experiences:

Wined & Dined


The rich colours, foodie elements and elegant papers make this kit the perfect accompaniment to your dining pages! But that's not all it's good for... with 6 solids, 12 patterned papers, 2 alphas and over 65 elements – this kit is perfect for wine tastings, trips to vineyards, cooking classes, your own little chef and more!

 Here's the page I scrapped using Wined & Dined: It's an oldie that's for sure!  These pictures were taken TEN years ago!  We used to love going to a winery in Nebraska for their annual Wine & Wings Festival  -  When we moved to Texas, it was one of the things we were really going to miss!  This was our final time out there :)

 And if you want to pick up some freebies and see what the rest of the team made with this kit, head over to Melissa's blog.

 Thank you for stopping by my little corner of the world!  I'm currently enjoying the weekend at Disneyland!  Back in February I signed up for the Disneyland 10K!  Please wish me luck on Saturday morning as I try to make it in under 2 hours while still enjoying lots of photo ops and maybe a few character meetings!

Designs by Romajo - Living With Bugs

This kit is absolutely adorable!  It is FULL of the cutest little bugs ever.  It's perfect for scrapping garden pictures, when maybe your little one caught a bug in a bug catcher.  It's also great for Honey I Shrunk the Kids play area at Hollywood Studios, or "It's Tough to be a Bug" at Animal Kingdom!

I wanted to just use each and every insect, but my layout wouldn't support it!  LOL  Hope you enjoy this kit as much as I did.  You can read more about it on Designs by Romajo's blog, and grab it this week at a discount!

The colors are wonderful in this kit, and it's just perfect for those little critter layouts!
#summerfun - Summer Sunset

I hope you enjoy the second installment of #summerfun - Summer Sunset.  I absolutely love sunset in the summer.  I think it's mostly because I'm always ready for bed.  haha.  But seriously, in Texas, sunset is the highlight of the day, because it means you can go outside!  We don't usually emerge from our homes (well, this family anyway!) until around 7.  At that time the high 90s doesn't feel quite as intense.  Because of this, we see a lot of sunsets - whether we're at the pool, or the park, or in our own yard!  I never take a picture of this sunset, though I'm thinking maybe I should - to remember how that setting sun brightened my long summer Texan days!  :)

Anyway, This kit was absolutely perfect to document the setting sun over the Pacific Ocean.  Another of my favorite views!  It's always so much fun to watch the sun go down over the Ocean.  You can find it in Designs by Romajo's store - and at 50% this week!  Read more about it on her blog.

I hope you enjoy your summer sunset today!

#summerfun - H2O

To me, nothing says summer like water.  Maybe it's because if we go outside here in Texas in the summer, the best place to be is the water!  We rotate our evenings by spending time at our neighborhood pool, and a local water park where we get season passes every summer.  This new #summerfun kit from Designs by Romajo is perfect for scrapping the water park, running through sprinklers, blowing bubbles, or just playing in the water while watering your garden!

You can read more about it on her blog, and find it in her shop for 50% off right now!  It's super bright and cheerful and was so much fun to play with!

#summerfun - Camping Adventure

Also releasing this weekend is a camping kit that is full of all thosse elements that you would need to camp!  Tent, compass, water bottle, backpack, flashlight, sleeping bag, and so much more!  While we don't do a lot of camping, my son got to experience his first week long summer camp in June.  We won't go into how he felt after the camp, but before he went he was looking forward to it tremendously (let's just say it was HOT :) )

You can read more about this kit on Designs by Romajo's blog as well, and it's also on sale this week!

I hope you enjoy these "dog days" of summer!

Rustic Fall - Digi Express Train

Do you love to collect free digi supplies!?  The Digi Express blog train is back - and this time they're looking forward to Fall.  What a fun switch.  Fall is my favorite season of the entire year!  Fall in Texas is not quite the same as it is up North where I grew up.  We go straight from hot to ugly - typically November we drop from the 80s to the 60s and have a week or two of lovely colors on our trees - then a storm usually comes through and knocks them all off!  But I enjoy them while I have them!

This kit is perfect for scrapping Halloween, pumpkins, or an afternoon hiking through a beautiful location.

Here's where you can find Designs by Romajo's pieces to the train as well as get all the other stops for the rest of the blog train.

The papers are on her Facebook page.
The elements are here.
And if you are signed up for her newsletter, you will get the alpha mailed to you every Saturday through August in in your inbox!

Have fun!

#summerfun - Beach Life

Today I'd like to introduce you to a beautiful beach kit!  Designs by Romajo's second installment of #summerfun - Beach Life!  While I don't live near a coast, and we don't visit any of our local lakes, I have had the chance in the last 2 years to visit both the Pacific, the Atlantic, and the Carribbean, so I have been able to introduce my kids to the fun (and annoyance) and sand!

This kit is perfect for sandy photos, seashell fun, Coastal family shots, or just hanging out by the beach!  You can find it at With Love Studios this week for 50% off!  And, you can read more about it on Designs by Romajo's blog.

I hope you all have a great weekend!

Happy 4th of July

Are you recovered from the 4th of July?  Fireworks keep you up late last night?

Here in Texas it was a warmer than usual 4th of July - only got to mid 90s instead of pushing triple digits.  We enjoyed a parade in the morning, Nathan's hot dog eating contest in the afternoon, and a great BBQ dinner in the evening.  Yum!

Designs by Romajo has re-released her Stars & Stripes kit and added some new things to it.  

You can find the kit here; the flairs here; and the extra papers here.  All three are on sale 50% off for this first week!
