Penny for you Thoughts

It's the name of Artgal Style's latest kit and its really really cute. Full of fun elements for any layout about piggy bank, allowance, first bank account, retirement fund, ...
The colours are fresh and versatile and I love the piggy:

My layout is a pic of my son at Easter because, as the journaling explains, he got a lot of chocolate but we also opened his first bank account for him and his grand-parents put some money in it:

The kits is on sale for $3 until next Friday here and Artgal Style has a freebie add-on for you on her blog!!
Today is the first day of spring for us, we're having sun and warm temps after a week with 3 days of snow and freezing temperatures, so I'm off to enjoy it and get my little man outside some more.
Happy scrapping!

Little bunny

Take a look at the FREE collab you get at Scrap That Idea for any purchase of $5 or more:

I used to scrap my little bunny on Easter. He had a sip of water in his mouth and it makes his cheeks look so much like a bunny's!
It's a scraplift of a page by Photoqueen for a lift challenge at Scrapable.

The colours are more pastel than I'm used to using, but I love the result.
I had a really hard time finding a cute bunny in my stash and I was glad to find them in this gift kit. So go spend a few bucks on goodies before the end of April and you'll get this one for free with the cute bunnies and other cute Easter elements! (as of May 1st it'll be a new gift collab and this one won't be available for sale for a while...)
Happy Scrapping

I've been scrapping!

I guess I was pretty inspired this week and I have 4 layouts to show!

The first one is done with the latest kit by Artgal Style. It's the Add-On to the one I showed you in my previous post. It's called Artist in the House Add-On (logically) and it's great on its own but makes an amazing kit combined with the original!
Take a look at the Add-On and my layout:

Next, I used another gorgeous kit by Artgal Style called Moody Retro to rant about mid-April snow storms, lol. It was also done for a font challenge at Scrapable and it got Layout of the Day there yesterday, which made me pretty happy. I did enjoy making the cluster and spreading the words all around!

I also got around to using a couple of kits by A Work In Progress Designs by Vicki that I've been wanting to use for a while.
The first documents a game we used to play with Cédric when he made a serious eyebrows face. We'd say "gros sourcils" (big eyebrows) and then make him smile by saying "gros sourire" (big smile). It was almost impossible to get photos of as he'd just do it whenever and it went fast and these are the only two pictures I have as a combo showing the little game. The kit worked well with the colours and the silliness of the subject. It's called Happy Days:

And finally I scrapped Cédric's first carousel ride with the gorgeous template by Aimee from the challenge at Scrapable and another beauty by Vicki called Village Fair:

That's it! Have a good Easter week-end if you celebrate it.
Happy scrapping!

Blooming artist

The title combines the names of the two new releases I should have shown you on the week-end (stupid addictive Angry Birds...).
I'm showing them now though!

The first one is called Blooming Beauty, it's Stacey's Scraps latest kit and as usual is full of the funnest most original doodles!
Take a look at the kit and my layout:

The layout is of my little dude with his 90-years-old great-grand-mother!! Doesn't she look good?

The second kit is called Artist in the House, by Artgal Style. It's a gorgeous kit with amazing colours for all your art themed layouts. And she was so inspire that there will be a second part to the kit coming out this Friday! Take a look:

Check out Laramie's blog for a freebie with the most beautiful wordarts (like the one I used on my layout: "art and soul").
That's it for today, off to play Angry Birds, lol.
Happy Scrapping!

So little time!

The past 10 days have been crazy. I've joined a gym and started exercising. There seems to have been more to do all around and the weather is getting a bit nicer, so I try to take my little one outside now and then.
This week-end, hubby also surprised me with a little gift: Angry Birds on my computer, and that game is so addicting that I haven't scrapped at all...

But tonight, I want to show you Artgal Style's gorgeous new kit, My Shabby Garden:

The colours are beautiful, there are lots of gorgeous elements and I LOVE the grass alpha!
Here's my layout:

And I also want to show you A Work In Progress Designs by Vicki's new kit called Fresh Outdoors. Here again I love the colours!

I don't have a layout to show, but go buy the kit and you can show me yours ;)
And Vicki has a freebie on her blog for you (preview linked):

Happy scrapping!

Another freebie!

Yay, it's fun to give stuff away :)

Stacey's Scraps new kit today is called Hopping Down the Bunny Trail and it's an adorable Easter themed kit, with awesome doodles! I made my page and turned into a quickpage for you again!
Take a look at the kit (linked to the store):

Check out the hairy chicks, I LOVE them!
I used the kit to scrap my son's Easter basket. We bought it last year and will be using it again this year and maybe more.

Isn't it the cutest basket?
And as the layout was a pretty versatile Easter layout (once I took out the title), I turned it into a QP for you (with Stacey's permission of course):

The page is linked to 4shared for you to grab it! And I'd love a little love if you download ;)
Happy Scrapping!
