My layout using Rose for Mother

Here is the layout I created using my Roses for Mother mini kit.

I had fun creating this kit as I actually painted the dark rose myself on the computer with software called "Artrage". It was so much fun that now I want to get myself a graphics tablet so I can maybe do even better artwork on the computer.
The papers were also painted using Artrage ( except maybe the plain apricot piece).

Roses for Mother

This is my latest little kit I have put together as a freebie over at Nuts 4 Digi.
If you click on the image it will take you to the store where you can obtain this kit for free.

In the forum at Nuts 4 Digi I am running a challenge in the Nuts For Variety challenges where participants are to use this free kit for their layout.

I will also share the layout I created using this for the challenge.

Featured Artist this week over at Faith Sisters.

What a surprise today to discover I have once again had a layout featured at Faith Sisters.
Because the artists there are so very talented I thought this would never happen to me so I am thrilled.
This was a special layou to do as it is about my elderly mother.

The kits used are both called "Loving Well" - one by Kreative Karma and the other by Lifesong Creations

Third Layout to be Featured at Faith Sisters in January

This was such a fun layout to put together.
The poem was written by me. The layout was for a challenge at Colorline Designs and was for their Art Challenge. We were to look for inspiration from the Fairy paintings by Cicely Mary Baker and most of her fairies has poems with them which is why I decided to write my own poem.

This was a photo I had for a long time wanted to do something with. My brother did not have a digital camera and did not know until it was developed that the photo looked like this. Most people seeing the photo said how Ruth looked like a fairy. So I turned her into a fairy by adding the wings and the setting.
The main background paper is from RaspberryRoad Designs. Most of the other items are from a kit called Fashion Fairy by Ikscrap

This was the second layout I had featured at Faith Sisters and was a scrplift of a layout called "I Love You" by Gonewiththewind.

I also used the layout for a colour challenge at Nuts 4 Digi and most of the papers and embellishments come from Challenge prize kits at Nuts 4 Digi.

Featured Artist for three week during January at Faith Sisters

This was the first Layout which gained me Featured Artist at Faith Sisters.

This was a layout for Creative Team work for Scrappin Out Loud and I used a kit called Christmas Past by Secret Garden Creations.

The Charity Kit I took part in: " For Tuesday" is going to have the price lowered as it is not selling as well as hoped so please pop over to Faith Sisters in a day or so and it should be available at a more reasonable price.

Hopefully if you click on the image it will take you to the store where you can obtain this fun kit.

Now if you are up for a challenge join the forum at Nuts 4 Digi and take part in my Member Hosted Challenge for March.

Sorry, but I am all new to this and my link to the image did not work before.

For Tuesday


This is my part of a charity kit for a family who recently lost their little girl named Tuesday to cancer. You can purchase the HUGE collabrative kit at Faith Sisters... go to the list on the side of my blog.

This was my first attempt at Digital Designing which I did enjoy and has got me just a little bit hooked on designing. But this will only ever be for charity kits, giving away here on my blog and free kits available at Nuts 4 Digi..... will share one available there now in a later posting.

My Banner is Made

Today I have uploaded the banner I made using a digital template created by Erica Hite of Scrap Girls. And used with permission the lovely flower and the red and purple papers are from digital designer - Donna Duncombe Designs. You will find Donna's designs for sale at one of my favourite stores - Nuts 4 Digi ( the website is at the bottom of this blog). Nuts 4 Digi was the first digital scrapbooking forum I joined on the 20th February 2008. This month was my first birthday of doing digi. Nuts 4 Digi has become like a home to me. The members are all friendly, the owner is great and there are some great challenges for inspiration.
This Friday night I am hosting the chat and then next month I am hosting a Speed Scrap which should be fun.

Soon I will start sharing some layouts and some of my own designing.

Now to have a look at what this all looks like.

Today is 20th January 2009 and at long last I am making a start to a blog for sharing my digital scrapbooking.
I have template to create my own header which I will get around to doing one day soon.
This is fairly new to me as the other two blogs I have I did not do much on those but this one I want to set up properly and have links to my favourite designers and stores etc.

I share my layouts on quite a few forum galleries and will possibly share which ones.
Today I had an exciting happening as one of my recent layouts was chosen for "Made You Look Mondays" on the Faith Sisters Blog. I did not think I would be ever good enough for that as those scrappers are all so very talented. I will share this and another one chosen two weeks ago once I get this blog set up properly.
