Scraplift Challenge

I'm hosting a Scraplift Challenge over at MouseScrappers!  During this scraplift, I've challenged everyone to browse through Julie L's gallery to find inspiration.  There really are no specific rules, other than be inspired by one, two, three or more of Julie's layouts and create a Disney-inspired layout! 
 
The best part about hosting a challenge, is I get to give the participants this cute Stackables v.2 {mini} kit for completing the challenge! 

 
So where can you find this challenge?
I'm glad you asked! 
You can follow this link to the Scraplift Challenge at MouseScrappers as well as earn your own copy of Stackables v.2 {mini}
What are you waiting for?  This challenge is only happening now through December 18th!

Miss me, yet?

Have you missed me yet?  It's been a while since I've posted to my blog and for that I do apologize.  I had a lot going on and didn't know if anyone was interested in hearing about it!  Before I start, let me show you what I've been scrapping because sometimes that shares more in to our lives than mere words can describe!

*please click here for credits*
I love fall and love the leaves on the ground!  It's one of my favorite things about fall.  Although my most favorite thing is seeing the leaves change their colors, seeing the rainbow fall colors appear almost as if overnight!  I love the smell of fall from the cool, crisp air all the way to the warm burning leaves smell.  I enjoy fall and have been very thankful be in an area that has that season!

Probably one of the hardest things our family has gone through has been the unexpected death of my grandmother.  I am very lucky to be in my late 30's and still have my grandmother in my life, much less in my children's lives!  That blessing has been taken away as she was called Home to our Lord and Savior.  I will never forget the last time my son and I were able to spend with my grandmother, a few days prior to her death.  It was such a sweet moment, my 2-year old singing "Twelve Men", "You are my Sunshine", "Jesus Loves Me" and many other childish songs.  I do not think my son will remember his great-grandmother, but I will cherish this moment right down to the last hug and kiss before we walked out of the room.

My oldest is having a hard time with her daddy being gone.  When we first started this year, we knew it would just be a year and figured while it would go by probably slowly, it would go by.  We had no idea the many changes that would happen this year.  For the first time in eight years, my oldest left the homeschooling world and was enrolled in public school.  That's right, she started school the middle of 8th grade year--a year that is very rough on anyone to start school.  We thought she would succeed, but after moving away from the military community and in to an area where she had to figure out who she was, I'm not going to lie, she struggled to find who she was and who she is.  This year has had its ups and downs, mostly downs, but we are taking each day as they come.
 
Well, that's all I have for you, layout-wise.  I have scrapped a lot layouts, but nothing really recent as I'm going through and trying to scrap older photos of the children so I can get their albums ready for the printers. 
 
What have you been up to these days?

It's Fall Y'all

MouseScrappers just started this fun challenge called a RAK Challenge.  In a nutshell, they give you a colorswatch and if you happen to have time during the month, you create something with it to share with the MouseScrappers community! 
 
I was really excited and created It's Fall, Y'all

Calling all Whovians!

That's right, I'm calling you!!  Did you know that when you follow MouseScrappers Facebook Fan Page, you can get monthly freebies?  Yay!  This month I donated four Doctor Who inspired journal cards that you can use for all different projects!

 
I love these cards and I am not a Whovian in the least!!  However, these cards make me want to be a Whovian!! My girls are obsessed with all things Doctor Who, so this was fairly easy to make.  I just made these journal cards from things that I've heard my girls talk about.  About the only thing missing is perhaps the 10th doctor, but I really have no preference of a doctor since I really don't know anything about the show!
 
Anyways, you can download Doctor {journal cards} through MouseScrappers Facebook Fan Page here for a limited time.  At the end of the month, they will be gone!  Don't miss out!

Bow-tique

Neverland Scraps met with Carol, the owner of MouseScrappers about the possibility of donating a kit to the store to help with site/maintenance fees.  After a few weeks, Neverland Scraps created Bow-tique which went live today! 
I love how this kit came together! 
There are six pattern papers and four solid papers. 
There are over 85 elements and a complete alpha that coordinate beautifully together! 
 
As  a bonus, Neverland Scraps created Bow-tique {bonus} to scrap those moments, yourself or those special people in your life who have battled or who are dealing with Breast Cancer. 
Where can you get Bow-tique?
I'm glad you asked!
You can get Bow-tique exclusively here at MouseScrappers
Bow-tique will ONLY be available for purchase at MouseScrappers during the month of July.
ALL proceeds from the purchase of Bow-tique will go towards the site/maintenance fees of MouseScrappers.  Your small contribution can make a large impact for such an amazing community!
I know it's been a while since I designed, but I remembered how much people liked seeing the product in use!  I am pleased to show you how these two layouts turned out using Bow-tique
 Both layouts were using Neverland Scraps Pixie Plates 
Make sure you head over to Neverland Scraps Facebook Fan Page to pick up Bow-tique {bonus alpha} which is not available any where else, but at Neverland Scraps Facebook Fan Page!

Don't forget Bow-tique is ONLY AVAILABLE during the month of July.  At the end of the month, it will be removed from MouseScrappers and I do not know if you will be able to purchase it again as I am not selling in a store at the moment.  Make sure you get Bow-tique before it's gone and while you are helping a fabulous community, MouseScrappers!!

Until next time . . .

Pixie Plate #296

One of my favorite things about designing is seeing how it was/is used!   When I was selling, I loved getting emails from customers sharing their latest project with something of mine.  I also loved being able to go through the store's gallery to see how customers used my product.  It gave me great joy to see those projects.  Pixie Plates always gave me the greatest enjoyment as I'd look through the gallery thinking "that's my template?"  and then be wow'ed at how the scrapper took the template and made it their own with altering the template by removing/adding photos or cluster differently than I had imagined.  That was probably my favorite memory about being an active designer and selling in a store--seeing how my designs were used.    So if you have used Pixie Plate #296, consider emailing me or posting her the link to your layout so I can see how Pixie Plate #296 gave you inspiration on your layout!!
 
I wanted to scrap with this template,
so I grabbed In the Stars Collection by Amber Shaw
 
 
When I saw this kit, I knew I needed to have it and scrap my daughter's 8th grade formal.  As I scrapped, the layout kept evolving and changing from one direction to another.  Originally I had four photos along the bottom, but I wanted to journal, so I removed two of those photos.  At the end of the night, this was my finished layout using Pixie Plate # 296
 
 
I love how this layout come together.  I love everything about it!
How have you used Pixie Plate # 296 or another Neverland Scraps product?
