Wanna see my monkey?

Hehe, I'm of course referring to my son, who lately climbs EVERYTHING! He's on the desk, on the piano, on the coffee table, everywhere!
I used danimoy designs' latest, which was perfect. It's called Little Monkey and it's really cute, with fun colours:

Cute isn't it? And here's my LO for inspiration:

That's it for today!!

A "beary" cute new release

Simple Girl Scraps released an adorable kit yesterday. It's called Bear Hugs and has a teddy bear theme. The colours are warm and it can be used for more than teddy bears too. I really enjoyed scrapping with it and all the CT layouts were gorgeous, which is the sign of an awesome kit!!
Take a look at Bear Hugs (only $2 this week!!):

There's also an awesome add-on with 6 dressed up teddy bears which is also only $2 right now:

But if you like the kit and want the add-on, you can go get the kit and participate in a little challenge, and you get the add-on FREE!! It's the Tasty Treat challenge, at ScrapDelicious, and you have until March 3rd to participate and get the add-on.
And for inspiration, here's my layout:

The photo is of a teddy bear we made for my son before he was even born at one of those "make you own bear" store and the journaling explains when we made it, how fun it was to stuff it and give it a "soul" and how even though my son doesn't play with it yet, I'm keeping it safely for the future ;)
And to top it all of, Heidi, another CT member, has made a freebie for you that coordinates with the kit:

You can get it here on her blog with the download link. Leave her some love ;)
Thanks for looking, have a good week-end!

Sad but good...

One of my best scrappy friends, whose kits were among the first I scrapped with, and have always been and are still among my faves, is retiring :( It's so sad to know there will be no more new kits from her... but the good news is that she's having a giant retiring sale, and EVERYTHING in her MyMemories store is only $1!!
Of course, I speak of no other than Vicki of A Work In Progress Designs by Vicki. For inspiration of what her kits look like, you can just look at my blog, as it's designed with her kit Live Laugh Love, one of my ultimate favourites (I made a mini book with it and just LOVE those colours):

It's going to be really hard to limit myself, but I'll show you 3 more of my favourite kits of hers then I urge you to browse the whole store and pick up some of these amazing bargains before they are gone FOR EVER... The store closes on the 29th of this month, only 6 days left!

And finally, let me show you the latest LO I made. I used her kit 911 Rescue, which is already retired, to scrap my son eating a granola bar, one of his favourite snacks. He eats one everyday and the way he says "barre de granola" is too cute :D

Well, that's it for today. Don't miss this final sale ;)

New and news!

Friday had releases from Artgal Style, Simple Girl Scraps and Truman Studio, so I have lots to show ;)

Artgal Style released Me and My Jeans, a fun denim kit that can be used for so many layouts. I actually used it to scrap about my jeans :D

Truman Studio released a really fun kit called Express Yourself which I used to scrap Cédric eating baguette a couple of years ago, along with her Funky Pink Alpha:

And last but not least, Simple Girl Scraps released My Everyday Life, a great versatile kit, and offered it to her Facebook fans!! (ps: the coupon is valid until the 20th, you still have time to be a fan on her page and get the coupon):

I LOVE the alpha on this one!!
And she's the one with big news this week as she is no longer exclusive at ScrapDelicious but will also be selling her gorgeousness at With Love Studio for your shopping pleasure and convenience!!
That's it for today. Thanks for looking ;)

Lots of love!

I meant to post a Happy Valentine's Day message yesterday, but I didn't, so I hope everyone HAD a great V-Day :D

Let me show you the card I made for my son to give at school to his classmates and teachers.
I made it with the sweet kit Is This Love by Colie's Corner, so I'll show you the kit first:

Cute, right?

Now let me show you Simple Girl Scraps' awesome new kit. It's perfect for love, baking and the love of baking and it's called Love to Bake!!

I used it to scrap the photos of my son meeting Minnie Mouse at Disneyland Paris. He just loved her, stared with admiration and even kissed her nose. Too cute!!

It's only $2 right now and well worth it, and it matches the colour swatch of the month for the Creative Junction at ScrapDelicious, so you can get other kits to match it and make a mega ;)

A super sweet kit!!

I'm back to show you danimoy's latest release and it makes for a SUPER CUTE kit!!
It's called I Love You Deer, take a look:

There are elements, papers, paint splats, photo masks and stacked papers, each part is only $1!!
And it's part of the Grab A Byte at ScrapBookBytes, so there are plenty of other kits with the same colours and you can make a mega kit!!
I used it to scrap one of my favourite songs to sing to my son especially to help him fall asleep:

It's perfect as the lyrics involve a little doe :D
It's the story of a little doe who becomes a beautiful princess in the handsome knight's arms, super cute song!!

One more freebie!!

Today, I'm back with a freebie for you!!
You probably remember that Simple Girl Scraps released a gorgeous kit called XOXO and organized an awesome CT blog train with a freebie everyday... Today is the last of the CT freebies and it's another one of mine.
Let me remind you of what the kit looks like (title and preview linked to the store):

It's still 40% off and therefore only $3, don't miss it ;)
For inspiration, my layout looks like this:

If you like it, the stacked papers were my previous freebie and it's still up for grabs here!!

I forgot something...

I have lots more to tell and show!!
Truman Studio is guesting this month at Scrapable, which is awesome as I've always loved Scrapable and especially their awesome challenges.
So I've used her kits in the guest store to scrap for the challenges (and get me some points in the process :D).
First, I did my desktop for the desktop challenge with her kit Retro Sweets:

I LOVE the colours in this one!

And then I used her gorgeous kit All About Me: Boy Edition for the font challenge, with an awesome font choice (the Painted collection, I chose the messy one):

I highly recommend both the kits, which are gorgeous, and participating in the challenges at Scrapable, which are always super fun!!

Picture This!!

It's the name of Artgal Style's brand new kit and it's a really nice versatile photo shoot kit, perfect for boys, girls, adults, everyday, anything!!!
Take a look at Picture This:

And here's my layout:

It's about the fact that sometimes it's hard to get him to smile and we have to take lots of pictures, but it's worth it :D

And as usual, Laramie has an awesome add-on freebie for you on her blog:

And she's also re-releasing a beautiful love themed kit called Be Mine:

That's it from her this week, two gorgeous kits!!
Have a good week ;)
