I am so happy. I am racing in the Amazing Digi Scrapping Race. I have met a new friend that is racing with me. She is known through Digiland as Kimm23 and she is awesome. She has 5 kids (mostly grown - as she said). Between us that is 12! So our team name is Elements x 12. So challenges come out every Sunday and Wednesday.  Sunday,  was the first challenge, and I already finished my page! Woo Hoo!
The Challenge was to scrap a BAD photo. I used a photo that my husband took. I have no idea why. There is no explanation as to why that photo was on my camera. So I scrapped it.
Here is my first race page!
I used Snips & Snails kit called Blue Jean Spring , and the camera element was from an A5D designer colab called for the love of scrap.

Now this one was so fun, and I really like how it turned out I thought it would make a neat template, What do you think?  So I went ahead and created a template from this. I really like it and I hope you will too. Please tell me what you think.

After the party

Whew, with iNSD weekend over, I am feeling pretty good about all my finds. I did spend some money, but what I got are kits that I have really wanted for a long time. So all in all I feel pretty good about my purchases. I do have a bit of that day after the big event let down going on though.  [big sigh]. Of course I am trying to fight off a bit of a cold too, so that doesnt help.
Here is what I have been up to getting ready for the big day, and my designers new releases over the weekend.
Charly of Sunny Day Scraps is so excited to announce that she has opened her store over at Me So Scrappy!

And with the opening of her new store she has a wonderful colab with Daybreak Scraps by Dawn exclusive to her Me So Scrappy Store . The kit is called Remembering You, and is just so beautiful. 
here are my pages with the kit.

She also has a new kit called Summer Day that I got to play around with. This one is so bright and fun. A great kit for all your summer photos. Available at Berry Sweet Scraps and at Me So Scrappy

I also made a couple of pages for the new release that Snips & Snails Designs released over the weekend. Her new kit is called Letters From Tuscany, and is just WOW! I had so much fun with this kit and put together what may be one of my most favorite two page spreads to date.  Letters From Tuscany is sold exclusively at One Story Down.

And I finally got to play in the Garden. That is the colab with Deli Scraps by Min, Skrapper Digitals, and Snickerdoodle Designs called Vintage Garden available at the Studio.
