Lots of scrappy news!

Hi everyone,

I've lots of fun things to share today!!

First, Stacey doesn't have a kit out this week (she's in the middle of a move) but instead, she's putting everything in her store at 40% off to celebrate her hubby's birthday (he turns 40, we get gifts!!). Here's her ad (linked to the store):

The second thing is to show you a gorgeous new kit by A Work In Progress Designs by Vicki and the layout I made with it for a font challenge.
The kit is called Friendship, take a look:

And here's the layout I made using it, and the font Your are Loved:

Finally, I want to tell you about a great series of challenges coming your way! Vicki (of A Work In Progress) has decided to have a challenge every two weeks. They will alternate between a freebie mini-kit that you'll have to use and any of her kits (store kits, freebies, or collabs).
The best part is that not only will there always be a winner who will get one of her kits, but you will also collect points for participating, winning (when you do) and commenting on other people's entries. And eventually, these points will get you some kits from her store!! So on top of enjoying yourselves, everyone will get to win!! Isn't that AWESOME?!?!?!
Here's the ad for the challenges, linked to the forum where you need to sign up in order to participate (the first challenge is up, so hurry, we're waiting for you!):

And here's the layout I made for the first challenge:

Well, that's it for today. I hope to see many of you join the challenges. I've been a huge fan of Vicki's for a long long time and I know I would never miss a chance to win some of her kits... Plus it's a bunch of really nice, really fun ladies over there!!

Happy scrapping!

another monster post! And a freebie!!!

Well, two days after my last post, my parents arrived for a 3 week visit. They are from France and I'm in Canada, so we don't see each other very often. It was a great visit, very pleasant, but it cut down my scrapping/blogging time.

So now that they're gone, I have LOTS to say and show.
You're going to have to bear with me a bit and you'll be rewarded for your patience with a freebie...

First, I want to let you know about a great sale at Scrap That Idea:

Next, I want to show you my last few CT layouts, all done with kits by Stacey's Scraps.

Just for Kids (what a fun, bright kit!!):

Grams and Gramps which is perfect for grand-parents/great-aunts or uncles, etc. and so much more:

Always Remember for all police/army/firefighter pics or anything else like my page ;):

Happy Campers which has exclusive doodles to scrap your camping/nature pics (I love the colour combo in this one!):

That's it for CT layouts!! And I'll show you all challenge layouts in another post.
So now it's time for your freebie template!!

It's based on a layout I made which I thought was a bit different and could make a nice template. Here it is (click on it to go to 4shared and download):

Leave me a little love if you grab it and happy scrapping!
