DSD on Saturday!

Digital Scrapbooking Day is tomorrow (Saturday) and there is SO much going on everywhere! My luck that I'm not even going to be home tomorrow and nowhere near a computer. Just as well, at least my Paypal won't suffer LOL

This is going to be a long post, first of all, I haven't posted in a while - and second, there is just SO MUCH happening tomorrow!!!

Birgit Kerr has a new kit, Metamorphosis, and a huge deal for DSD
This is a fantastic kit, so fun to use - and here's a layout I did using it...This is my older daughter in September. She just started dance classes and enjoyed them immensely. After her first class she had a bit of a show for us on the living room floor, where she turned and swirled all over. It was so much fun! Unfortunately, most of the photos I took were really bad, so I thought I'd just blend them in to the background to show them off without showing off their badness LOL I'm actually pretty happy with this layout, and it got a mention in the GSO thread - so that made me even more happy :)

Dawn Inskip has a huge sale in her stores at NDISB and Pickleberry Pop
She's also having a big retirement sale at NDISB and Treasures To Scrap

All of Karah Fredrick's designs are 40% from Friday through Sunday - and then she is going to put random products up for more discount, even 50-60% throughout Saturday, so keep your eyes on her store!!!

Here's a layout I made using Karah's collab with Jacque Larsen. It's called No Place Like Home - and it's a FANTASTIC fall kit!!
This is my BIL's dog - he is such a fun puppy - and he was really enjoying the fall leaves!!

Phuong Ton is having a sale in her SBG Studio.She just released two fantastic new kits, Orchid Dreams The Beginning and Orchid Dreams Reawakening. This is definitely the time to check them out!
Here are a couple of layouts using those kits...
My little one enjoying a good day in the summer of 2007...

And some photos from our visit to a Buddhist Temple in Nanning, China in March 2004.

Other than that, Vera Lim still has her October grabbag for only $'s a layout I did with what's in the bag - it's some fantastic stuff!
These are my daughter and my husband's nephew at a lake by a cabin we went to earlier in October. The weather was so nice, a bit cold, but sunny and still. Perfect!!

...and did you see Vera's fantastic new collection, A Walk Down Memory Lane? It's to die for!!

Shabby Miss Jenn released a stunning new kit this week. It's called Grandma's Scrapbooks. There are no words to describe it - so take a look! Oh, and there is also a free addon pack and a free desktop!This layout is also showing a photo from Nanning, China. We went on a trip out in the country and it was just amazing!!

Well, I think that's it for today!! Thank you so much for stopping by :)

I'm seriously slacking in the blogging department - or maybe I was just a bit better at it in September and October is back to normal! Anyways, I've also been a slacker in the scrapping department this month, so maybe it's just the changes in weather and the fact that daylight is getting scarce here in Iceland :)

I've been scrapping some, though!

Karah Fredricks has a new home now! She started selling her gorgeous designs at OScraps and has some fabulous new stuff in her store!This is my little sweetie last weekend. We went for a drive around our little glacier and stopped at the beach for awhile. The ocean was pretty wild from the storm which went through the day before so it was really beautiful! I love the ocean when it's wild :)
I used Karah's Hoo Hoo Hoo mini kit and her No Place Like Home collab with Jacque Larsen. Both of them absolutely fabulous kits!!

Dawn Inskip just released a fantastic set of date stamps and calendars.
They are really fantastic and I know that I'll come back to these again and again!!I used the date stamps on this layout - along with a lot of different gorgeous creations by Dawn Inskip. This is my older daughter at 2,5 years. She has a small behind and her favorite past time was to sit in the LEGO bucket and "read" a book. At 2,5 she was still small enough to get in the bucket - just not small enough to get out of it again. So that's frustrating LOL She still gets her butt in the bucket, just old enough now to know not to get stuck :)

Cinzia Loosemore also has a new home for the month of October. She is one of the designers participating in Christina Renee's block party. For week 4 she is releasing a fantastic Halloween kit, called Tales of the Night. Now, we don't celebrate Halloween, so I'm not good with these kinds of kits. Somehow I can't show them off to their full potential - but here's my attempt...
This is my husband's nephew. He's way too cute to spook anyone - but I won't tell him that! At 8 years old, the last thing he wants to be is CUTE!!! But he is :)

Vera Lim has a weekly blog challenge. They are always fun - and this week, the challenge is to scrap something you cherish.This is my layout for the challenge. The journaling is about this moment when our daughter had been with us for 2 days. She had turned from a scared little baby into a flirty little toddler - flirting with herself, that is LOL She just loved the look of herself in the mirror and that's who she is looking at in that photo :)
I used one of Vera's gorgeous new kits, Cherish, included in her A Walk Down Memory Lane collection. It's a fabulous collection with 5 fantastic kits!!

That's it today :) Thank you so much for stopping by!!

Gorgeous new stuff...

Ok - it's been awhile LOL

Dawn Inskip has some gorgeous new stuff in her store today - so I just had to share! First of all, she has some new word art - Expressions Love - which I absolutely love!!! Dawn makes such gorgeous word art!!
She also has these awsome alphas - Tiny Tags Alpha - that are just perfect!!I had so much fun using these, and here's my layout...I also used Dawn's New Beginnings kit.
So these are my gorgeous girls enjoying a picnic by the sea in the middle on June. We stopped at an old abandoned house in the middle of nowhere, sat on the old crumbling down pier and had a bit of lunch while enjoying the peace and quiet and imagining what life was like when someone lived there.

I'll blog more later, just wanted to share Dawn's gorgeous goodies!!

Have a good day - and thank you so much for stopping by :)
