Oops! Links are now working! And a pretty layout!

Okay, I've fixed the links I hope. I'm not sure why the links were not working?? I am sooooooo sorry! Please try again. Image is clickable. Also the address for the store at JDL is and you can find it that way. But please try the links again.

I'm posting a layout my wonderful friend, Helen created with my kit. She is CT Manager at DID, and she is amazing! And I know it's silly, but I almost cried when I saw this cause it is my FIRST EVER layout someone did with one of my kits. Remember I am a new designer and this is only the 4th kit I've ever created. So if anyone does a layout with Retro Daydream, I would so love to see it! Thanks so much for your comments!

It's Freebie Time! Retro DayDream

Wow, this Designing thing is time consuming! But so very fun! I love it! Just wish I had more hours in the day to work on it. Here is my 4th attempt at designing a kit. These are just not my colors so it was tough starting, but once I got going, I loved it! It's called Retro Daydream because it takes me back to my early childhood in the late 60s/early 70s. A magical time when you could just sit and dream about the future ahead. This kit is retro yet sparkly and pretty. 20 elements! 9 papers and 1 Alpha! Check it out! Image is clickable. Or you can download for FREE here.
I also recently went to the Tulip Festival which is always gorgeous! And took so many photos of the tulips and my cute kids. I did this layout of my girls with Dancing Princess Designs' new kit, Phenomenal Woman available at GDS. And another one of my boy after that so keep scrolling;)
And here's my sweet boy! Made with the fun Sunsational kit by AliSarah at DID.
K. Can't really see many tulips in this one, but isn't he just cute? He really is a blessing:)

Happy Mother's Day! Hope everyone is warm on this sunny day!

Happy Mother's Day to all moms and grandmas out there! I've had a lovely day so far. Other than my dh thinking he was being "playful" by pouring a cold cup of water on me while in the shower. :P (He thought I was going to take too long in my nice warm shower and make us late for church.) He's never done anything like that. Not his usual thing. So should I be flattered or bugged that he did this precious thing on Happy Mother's Day to me. Took me forever to get warm again. haha
Anyway, back to Mother's Day. I did this layout to my daughter for my mother in celebration of Mother's Day-- Things My Mother Taught me that I hope to Teach You. Made with a beautiful new kit by Dancing Princess Designs called Butterfly Heaven! So many pretty things to choose from in this lovely kit! Get it here at GDS.
And, don't forget, I've created only my 2nd kit ever for the contest at DID and it totally fits Mother's Day! The pearls and roses remind me of my mom and grandmas. It's called Grandma's Jewelry Box and you can download it for FREE here.

Grandma's Jewelry Box (my 2nd Kit EVER) and Another Freebie

Wow, this has been a crazy week! I was able to get a couple layouts done, and my 2nd entry for the NDIDDS contest as well. In between in-laws, doctors, drama, etc. LOL

So here is my entry kit. My 2nd time ever designing. Out of all kinds of comfort zones! But it is such a fun learning experience. I am learning so much! I extracted jewelry of my own that used to belong to my Grandmothers that have passed on. So I called it Grandma's Jewelry Box. Love especially the pearls, and I did a lot with roses because they always remind me of both my grandmothers, and especially my Great-grandmother who I was blessed enough to know as well until I was about 16 yrs old. It has 8 papers and 16 elements, and this 2nd try of mine is FREE! Yes, my 2nd Freebie ever. You can download it for free here at JDL for a limited time!
Speaking of my Grandma, this is my dad's mother during WWII. I love this layout I did with Tiger Lily's Digis Tea on Lakecrest. This kit has so many possibilities! Available here.
Don't you just LOVE digital scrapbooking??
