Never fails to make me smile

It never fails to make me smile....I'll be looking through a gallery, checking out the new layouts and then it hits me that some element or paper is MINE!!! And this time was no exception.

I was looking through the gallery at Mousescrapper's. Charlene (cmtscrap) is hosting a Template Challenge there. The template was donated by Little Green Frog Design. One of the entries really caught my eye.

Created by Stacy (teethdr)

Super cute.  This template has become one of my all time favorites.  And Stacy just really made it pop.  Stacy used my Worth A Thousand Words mini kit (other credits linked to photo).  The colors worked great.  Still working on getting the new store up and running.  Thanks for all your patience.

SnP Blog Train

For anyone coming for the blog train....So sorry, but I'm having a horrible time getting my train to leave the station.  Out of state, and the connection speed where I'm staying is NOT letting me get anything done.  I'll keep working on the problem.  Be sure to check back next Wednesday (I'll be home then and it will definitely be up for you then.  So sorry for the problems. 

Your next stop is Scrap Happens Embellish It

Where did January go and a CT Freebie....

It completely baffles my mind..."Where did January Go?"  The month just flew by.  I took time this month to reorganize a few things, especially in my scrapping world.  I've gotten myself back into a place where I'm really enjoying myself. 

I closed up shop over at Scrapable.  It is a great store with an amazing Boss Lady (a.k.a Bev) and some wonderful designer's and CT.  But don't fret.  I'm working on getting my new store Arts & Ains Designs Shop up and running.  Everything is there.  All my old products, just in need of new packaging.  It shouldn't be to much longer.  Thanks so much for your patience.  (If you need anything before then, let me know).  

But this month I got to find my joy in Scrapping again.  I got to take part in the Mousescrapper's Speed Scrap Marathon.  I hosted my first Speed Scrap.  It was so much fun.  It gave me the opportunity to create some layouts.

Here are the layouts that I made:

This was created for my Speed Scrap (#135)
Created for Speed Scrap #140
Created for Speed Scrap #128
I made this one for Speed Scrap #126
Speed Scrap #130
Created for Speed Scrap #127
And the last one for the Speed Scrap was this one
Speed Scrap #139

The Speed Scrap was so much fun.  So much amazing talent out there.  So many generous designers and layout artist that donated their time and talent with great prizes and super challenges.  THANK YOU!!!

But I didn't stop scrapping there.  I made this layout for the January Kit challenge.  "ILuvCrush" crush hosted the challenge.  And Keystone Scraps provided the wonderful kit.  (And add-on to her kit In the Hollow).
