New Freebie & Contest

It's a new month & I actually have a new freebie up in time!! LOL
One night Savannah & I were playing Scrabble & one of the words she had was 'dots'. Just goofing around I said "Dots of love Sweetie!" Then I thought, "Hey! That'd be a cool name for a kit!" So this month's freebie is what I've decided to call "Dots of Love Micro Mini". It's got fewer elements than my usual minis, but it's not just a paper pack.

I'm also having a contest. I've made a new kit, but am stumped for a name. So, I'm asking all of you to give me some help. In return the winner will recieve the kit FREE!! I love to name my kits with names that are a bit off beat, so give me your best, I'm counting on you to give me something not so boring & usual!!! Post a comment with your suggestion (don't forget to include your email adress!!) and on October 8th I will announce the winner. I can't wait to see what you come up with! Good luck!!! Here is a preview of the kit ~

Just in Time for Halloween

I just uploaded the latest kit to the Emporium called 'Mummy's Little Ghouls'. I have 3 girls, & have always thought it'd be cute for us all to dress up for Halloween ~ me as the 'Mummy' & them as my little 'Ghouls'. I never got around to doing it , and now that they're 13, 10, & 8 they just think it's corny. But it's a perfect name for a Halloween kit!! And this kit is not so "Halloweenie", so it's great for fall layouts, too. I'm also working on a new kit that so far has no name and I'm not even sure when it'll get to the Emporium!! LOL Maybe a "Name This Kit" contest will be in order. Will keep you updated. I'm also working on a new freebie for the month of October so b sure to check back on that. In the meanwhile here's a preview of 'Mummys Little Ghouls' ~

Another LO ~ Finally!

These challenges over at We Digi Dares Ya have got me moving on getting some pics scrapped! This week's challenge was definitely a hard one for me. I love how some people use lyrics to express the feeling of their LO, but I was never very good at it. Part of the problem was finding just the right lyrics. Well, I think I finally got it! LOL I love this pic of the girls I took last year, & the song "Yellow" by Cold Play just fit. Plus it's both Savannah's & mine favorite songs! Check it out

A Fun New Blog

I just discovered a cool fun Blog!! I can't reember how I stumbled upon it, but it's called We Digi-Dare You, and their first Digi-Dare is a fun one ~ you should check it out. Here is my LO for the dare from 2 years back when I took my 3 girls back East to the small town I grew up in. My brother still lives there with his wife & 3 kids, so we stayed with them & it was a very new experience for the girls. They were first very amazed at the number of trees the amount of grass. Then they couldn't believe the roads have no sidewalks or gutters & the houses are set back so far from the road! I hated growing up in such a small town (& most likely will not live in one again ~ I'm definately a city gal!) but seeing it with my girls, and their awe at how different I grew up from them, was priceless. So on to the LO for the Digi-Dare You challenge ~ "A Summer of Firsts"
