Bad blogger with lots to say ... and a freebie!

Between my son's ear infection, my own sinus infection, a little business/family trip, and nothing to give, I've been a bad blogger indeed!
So now I'm back with lots of things to say. And you might want to stay with me as I do have a little something for you at the end of the post...

First, let me tell you about the great sale coming up at Scrap That Idea:

My wishlist is ready, go prepare yours!

Now here are a couple of layouts I did for Stacey's Scraps CT. She keeps releasing gorgeous kits and I can't believe I'm 3 kits behind!
Take a look at T is for Teenager:

My layouts:

U is for Urban Love:

My layout:

V is for Victoria:

I've also done a few challenges lately, but as the post is getting long (!), I'll just show you this one, done with Earth and Sky by Mel Hains Designs:

And the reason I chose this one to show you is because I've made a template from it!
Hope you like it, here's the preview linked to 4shared to download:

Leave me some love if you like it.
Happy scrapping!

Challenges at Stacey's Scraps

Today I want to tell you about a couple of challenges that Stacey is having.
First, just join her Facebook page and you could win a free kit of your choice. It's that easy, just join before Sunday and she'll randomly select a winner. The Facebook page is very easy to find as she has a huge link on her blog ;)

The second one is a bit trickier, but really fun. What you have to do is guess what the T stands for in her next alphabet series kit, coming out on Saturday. You have until tomorrow night to post on her blog of Facebook page. So go ahead and guess, because if you guess right, you could win the kit for free. And although I can't help you, I can tell you that you will want the kit!

Now just to add a bit of colour to this post, here are two layouts I made for my brother-in-law and his wife, of their two very new daughters.
I used the collab Framboisine:

Catching up...

Happy Easter!

I have some catching up to do, lots of layouts to show and a challenge to tell you about.
I'll start with that:
the girls at Scrap That Idea let me host a challenge on their blog! Using my first template and their products are the only 2 rules and you can win a $5 GC to their store. Check it out here and participate! I can't wait to see what my few but faithful blog readers can come up with...do me proud! Here's a reminder of what the template looks like:

On to layouts.
Here's one with Stacey's latest kit S is for Spring (gorgeous colour combo, isn't it?):

And here's the kit:

Here's one with the April Scrap That Idea collab called Step Into Spring (it is HUGE, cheap and beautiful):

Look at the whole thing:

As usual I did some challenges.
