It's a New Day w/ Freebies

So thankful each morning (especially when the day before was one of 'those' days) to wake and know that It's A New Day.  

What a way to scrap the day than with Amy's Designs latest release.  It's a New Day is a great kit.  Filled with flowers, papers, butterflies, buttons, alphabets and more.  Not to mention the cutest little pocket you've ever seen.

I had so much fun creating layouts for this kit.  2 absolutely adorable babies and 1 equally adorable kit.

Challenges, Challenges

This week I took part in two Mousescrapper's Challenges.  

The first was for Mousescrapper's Template Challenge #172.  The template was by Scrapping with Liz_Photo Banner Template.  I used a wonderful kit by Sweet Shoppe Designs - Summer livin'.

The second layout I made was for Weekly Challenge #190.  This was a lot of fun.  The host of the challenge has a set of triplets turning 7.  They helped create the challenge. 

                        3 photos
                        3 patterned papers
                        7 of something
                        use pink, blue and purple somewhere on the page
                        add some Bling!!!!
                        and of course Disney Themed.

This is what I came up with:

We've shut our doors

Arts and Ains Designs has closed it's store doors.  Though I love to design, the time it was taking up, and taking me away from my true priorities was to much.  Though a part of me is sad about this, the other part of me has been enjoying the freedom.  I didn't realize just how much it consumed my time and even my thoughts.  I've been able to get back into creating layouts.  I'd  forgotten just how much I enjoyed it.  

So please continue to visit.  I'll be posting layouts (especially those created for the CTs that I'm on).  Making Freebies, and occasionally taking part in designer blog trains.  

Thank you for all the love and support you've given me.  If there kits of mine that you were hoping to get, send me an email and we'll see what we can do.  

God Bless.
