Happy Thanksgiving week-end to all my American friends!!
If you took lots of photos of family, food, or anything else, I have the kit for you!!
It's called Turkey Day, by Colie's Corner, and it's awesome, take a look:

I'm directing you to Colie's store (image linked) where you will also find some page starters, some quickpages, and some awesome templates to coordinate with the kit. I used one of the templates myself:

Hope you had a good Thanksgiving, black Friday and week-end.
Thanks for looking!

New in Artgal Style's store

Last Friday, Artgal Style re-released a couple of beautiful kits.
The first one is called De La Roche, it has very rich colours and a bit of a French touch. Oddly enough, I didn's scrap with this one, but there's lots of inspiration in the store ;)
The preview is linked:

The second one is perfect for late fall and Thanksgiving, the colours are rich and gorgeous and it was perfect for the photos of my frosted pumpkin:

Thanks for looking ;)

I'm back!!

I'm back from Jamaica and I have quite a bit to show!
But I'm going to start with the recent new releases.
Simple Girl Scraps, despite being on hiatus, has an awesome new kit in store. And she updated the store with lots of previous ones that were in other stores (she's now exclusive to ScrapDelicious).
The new kit is Happy Fall and it's awesome!!

And I love the result of my layout with it :D

She's also having a sale so you can't go wrong with a little shopping at her store:

Here's another kit that made it to the store and my layout (for all your summer photos or swimming lessons):

Let's move on to danimoy designs, who despite having a hard time with her place after floods, manage to release a beauty for the Grab A Byte at ScrapBookBytes, called Cozy Winter. Each part is only $1 and coordinates to a lot of other goodies in the store:

And my layout:

As it seems I'm going through the designers in reverse alphabetical order, here's what kind of new with Colie's Corner. The kit came out before I left and I only had time to scrap with it there. It's a beautiful, soft coloured, Halloween kit, called All Hallows Eve:

I used it to scrap my costume this past Halloween:

And finally, Artgal Style's latest kits. She just releases Bohemian, but I didn't have a chance to scrap with it... It's a very elegant kit and could easily be "Christmas-y"...

I did however have a chance to use the beautiful Meridian:

And my layout:

Phew, are you still there?
Hope you like what you saw ;)

Just so you know...

A little post, just to let you know about a couple of cool things.

The first one is an awesome sale on all danimoy designs' products. She's celebrating Halloween by putting everything at 40% off!! (the ad is linked to the store, go get some goodies)

The second thing I wanted to let you know about is a great place in Scrapland, called MyMemories! I like it for a few reasons. First they have a metric ton of designers, so there is something for everyone, in every style and for every occasion. It is also the place where 3 of the former Scrap That Idea designers sell their awesome designs: Sara (Sweet Blossom Designs), Mel (Mel Hains designs) and Vicki (A Work In Progress). Finally, they have promotions, free kits, contests and challenges on the blog, and those are always fun for inspiration. And I have to say they are VERY generous there. I won a contest a few months ago, and my coupon was somehow forgotten. So I sent a few small reminders once in a while, to see if I could get my $10 coupon (because I really liked the designer whose store it was for: Ettes and company). A couple days ago, I finally got a reply and Lisa was VERY apologetic and super nice. Then the coupon didn't work for some reason... And her solution for me was to make me a new coupon for $50!!!!! How generous was that, I was blown away. So thanks Lisa and MyMemories and take a look at what I got:

A Sunshiny Day by Sweet Blossom Designs

A Touch of Fall (plus the Borders and the Frames) by Lindsay Jane

Ready for School (and Wordart 1 and the Extras) by Connie Prince

Time4Me (the kits, the Extras, the Flairs, the Wordart, the Alpha, the Clusters!!) by Ettes and Company

And finally It Happened This Year (and the matching Flairs) by Connie Prince

Can you believe the shopping spree?!?!?! The hardest part was choosing, but I'm so happy! Now I have to use them, lol. I'm planning on using this last one to make my 2012 calendar, so that should keep me busy a while!
Thanks for looking, check out the danimoy designs sale and MyMemories this week-end ;)

How do you like your eggs?

I'm asking because Artgal Style likes them Over Easy, lol. It's the name of her new, breakfast themed, awesome kit!

I used it to scrap my little man starting the year with a yummy brunch:

Thanks for looking ;)

That might be how I feel, some if not most of the time, but it's mostly the name of Artgal Style's new awesome kit.
It has beautiful elements, some glitter, and some subtly fall colours. It's a fall kit with an awesome twist, I LOVE it!!

Take a look at this brand new kit:

And here's my layout with it. It's a recent photo I took myself of Cédric and me and I love it. And I also quite like how the layout turned out ;)

Thanks for looking, say hi if you'd like ;)

Well, there's no denying it, it's October! It's crazy that it's already the 10th... I feel like the month just started, and that's why I just just made my desktop (I guess I have two thirds of the month left to enjoy it...).
I still have to prepare my house for our trip to Jamaica in 3 weeks (my in-laws are staying over to watch our son, so it has to be CLEAN), figure out how to make Halloween treats with no dairy and no gluten, and plan our costumes.

For now, let me show you the super cute kit I used for my desktop. It's a kit by Colie's Corner called In The Woods. It's nicely "fally" and the colours are very rich, and there is a bunch of adorable animals, so cute I had to use them all.

That's the cute kit, but I recommend grabbing the bundle where you get awesome clusters, wordart, QPs and templates for only $7!!

If you look on the bundle preview, you'll notice I started with one of the clusters, but I wanted to put all the animals, and the mushrooms, so I built on it :D

I made if for the challenge at Scrapable of course, come play with us in the challenges ;)
I'm off to enjoy a family day off on this gorgeous Canadian Thanksgiving Monday!!
Thanks for looking!

Touch of Autumn

Colie's Corner and her CT lead have asked me to stay on the CT, yay!!!
So today I get to show you Touch of Autumn, a beautiful fall kit, with the cutest fally elements and a gorgeous colour scheme.
I used it to scrap a photo of a single birch leaf that fell on my deck and was full of little rain drops. I love that pic!!

Here's the kit, linked to the store ;)

And here's my layout:

Thanks for looking!

A quick challenge

Today I was inspired by the theme of the MyMemories blog challenge, and I knew I wanted to use danimoy designs' See You Latte for it. I actually LOVE the kit, the colours are so soothing, and the elements just gorgeous.
As it was super last minute and I'm off to bed, I'm keeping this short, so here's the layout:

Thanks for looking ;)

Lucky Me!!!

Today, I'm showing you the result of my being lucky!!

The first two layouts I made with the kits I chose with my coupon at Scrapable. I won a $5 GC for winning layout of the month, and I got this beauty called Animal Magic by Milly Dee Designs:

I had been looking for a camel and a kangaroo for EVER (well, for a year...) to scrap the little petting zoo pics from our last Fall Fair:

The journaling means: There's always a zoo at the fall fair. That year, the zoo was bigger and really varied with exotic animals rather than just farm animals. The alpaca was all soft and we went back a few times to pet him. The camel was impressive and Daddy wanted to feed him, but he wasn't very delicate and drooled a lot when he ate. I think what you liked the most was feeding the pigs. You asked for more seeds for them a few times. We enjoyed ourselves so much that we went back in the afternoon to see and feed the animals again!

My other news are bigger!! A little while ago, Rachel of Captivated Visions decided to switch her Build A Kit a bit as it was turning 1 and to ask fans to submit ideas (themes, colour schemes, ...) for a kit. She would then choose an idea to win a huge prize: working with her to make the kit of your dreams, getting that kit free AND $20 to her store.
I submitted 2 ideas, one I knew was a really long shot and one I thought might work... and she picked it to win!!!!
I won't say too much about it, but you can see her post here and you'll see that the theme will be YOGA.
But I'm already enjoying part of my gift. After a long hard time trying to decide what I wanted from her store (I pretty much wanted everything), I picked these two beauties:

I'm going to use them together to make an album about my doggie girl Schatzie (which was the other kit idea by the way, so I'm really getting both my "dream" kits).
Here's the first layout I made with it, for a Scrapable challenge, about her CKC name:

I'm really happy with it! I'm adding some of my own doodles, like the wings on this one.
I love the colour schemes of both kits and I quite like them together!! Check out her store, you will love everything!!

Thanks for looking, leave me a little hello if you have time ;)

Danimoy's latest

Danimoy Designs released a very delicate collab with A+ Designs called Shine On You. The colours are very soft and it's full of pretty elements:

I used it to scrap the first time I met my nephew Alexis:

Now Playing...

...Harry Potter?
Colie's Corner new release today is a movie themed beauty and I used it to show off the one and only pic I have of me going to see a Harry Potter movie. Incidentally, it's the last HP movie ever but I was lucky enough to have gotten a Gryffindor scarf from the them park for xmas, so I was wearing it in the photo and looking like the geeky fan that I am ;)

Take a look at the kit "Now Playing" and her cool new "Candy Coated" alpha:

I should mention I used one of Colie's awesome templates for the Sunday Brunch Crunch at Gotta Pixel:

Thanks for looking!!
