New Releases, New CT Member and a FREEBIE!

What a busy week . . . I have not one, but TWO new kits to share with you this week!

Wanna Play Ball? is a kit for the baseball/softball and basketball enthusiast . . . perfect to create layouts for any age athlete! It is only sale TODAY and TOMORROW for only $2.50, then 30% off through Saturday . . . .

Jeremy playing softball . . . layout by me!

And more by the creative team!

Look at what Bryn and Courtney (respectively) have done with this kit:

Which leads me to . . . I'd like to welcome my newest CT Member, Bryn. She creates AMAZING layouts and I'm so flattered to have her work with my designs . . .

Her bio: I'm a thirty-somethin' SAHM to two boys, Yorick (2) and Phineas (1). We live in the San Francisco Bay Area (for now), temporarily transplanted here from Orange County. I started scrapbooking shortly after my first son was born because I was unhappy with the baby books I was finding and I accidentally stumbled upon digital scrapbooking. I'm an aspiring photographer, self-proclaimed sci-fi geek, and horror movie afficionado. I met my husband while we worked for a video game company, I'm that nerdy!

Check out her blog . . . ScraptacularScraptacular. She has a free template available right now too!
Finally . . . don't forget about the Speed Scrap at DID tomorrow night! See the previous post for all the details! This is the participation prize . . . just for attending and playing along:

And if you haven't signed up for the newsletter yet, PLEASE DO! Look for the sign up block on the top right side of the blog - I'll send you a coupon for a free alphabet from my store just for signing up!

Reporting back on my first speed scrap . . .

Ok, so last week I encouraged all my cyber-friends to join me at DesignsInDigital.com for the speed scrap . . . with hostess Cara of Sweet Tomato Designs.

Oh my gosh . . . was this fun!! I had a hard time keeping up with everyone's chatter at first and trying to accomplish the tasks, until Cara pointed out that you have an hour to finish after all the "assignments" were doled out . . . thank goodness!

She had this clever way to relating each elements to an end of summer theme . . . so, so clever she is! Here is the layout that I created that night, it is a mix of several of my kits as I felt like I was on a scavanger hunt (giggle):

So, if you missed it (or even if you made it!) come join us this week for Sweet Tomato's Top 10 Speed Scrap at DesignsInDigital.com. The theme this week is . . . The Top 7 Ways You Know You've Crossed Over to the Digi Dark Side. And equally cool . . . the participation prize is my Digi-Scrapper Flair Button Pack!

Hope to see you there!
