Some Week So Far

OMG, this week has been something else. It started Sunday when my daughter had an Open Dress Rehearsal for her dance competition team. This is something special because it's the first time anyone outside of the company gets to see their dances. On the way to the PAC, we stopped to get extra batteries for the camera. You can't ever be too careful and the batteries were getting weak so we pop in the new and good to go. We get there and I'm all set up, Video Camera on the tripod, camera in hand. I turn on the camera and nothing happens. I take the batteries out turn them over, still nothing. I work on it for a few minutes and still nothing. Oh well now no great pics to share. Video is working so when I get time I can go frame by frame and get pics from that but I wanted instant pics to share. Well, I pushed that aside and ended up having a great day. Their dances looked awesome and I'm pumped for this weekend in Orlando.

Then on the way home I started feeling a little bad. Stomach hurting but I'm not going to let that get me down. Pop some Pepto and away we go. Monday, my stomach was still weak but off to work. Gosh it was freezing, over night the temperature here dropped 40 degrees. By the end of the day I've got the sniffles but still going. Tuesday my throat is hurting every time I swallow, Wednesday, I'm sick, bad cold, throat swollen almost shut, ear ache, body ache, hummm sounds like the flu to me. And I'm still going to Orlando this weekend.

As for scrapping I haven't felt much like doing much this week. I did work on a couple of Digital challenges and I'm working on a RAKscraps member's mega kit RAK on their site. I'm just learning the ins and outs of designing but I will be glad to share what I make when it's finished. Although it's a freebie, I can't give it away on my blog but I can give you the link to their site and you can get it there along with the QP's once they are posted. Please let me know what you think of my work.

Here's the layouts I've done at Digitals this week. You can see all my stuff at

This layout is of Bryce and his mom at beach at 6 weeks of age. I made this layout for the Ad challenge. You can find the challenge here along with the great posting gift you will receive when your finish. I used The Gift of Love by Handmaid Designs from Digitals. This was a posting gift and is currently unavailable for purchase.
This was made the Change it up Challenge, a Hybrid challenge. The layout is for the cover of one of those date planners you can buy for about a $1 most places and with this cover it's a great Christmas present. You can find the challenge here,
along with the template and posting gift. Get busy on your own. Here I used the DSD mini kit given out by Amanda Thorderson on her blog. I just love her work and she gives away tons of freebies too. You need to check her out.

This layout came courtesy of Kathryn Estry A-Ark QB with the Monkey Girl element from the BBB4 blog train. Add a pic of my cute baby boy and you get a great layout. Here's Kathryn's blog and here's were to get the QP

This page was really fun to make. I used color fills for the background and frames. The Pep Rally Font from the Font Free 4 All Challenge at Digitals. Add some pics and viola, a great sports page of my daughter a few years back.

And finally a simple layout of Bryce for the Designer Elements Challenge. Here you get a free mini kit for the layout. Pop in a pic pic of Bryce at the beach (I love his eyes) and you have it. This was made with Katie Mann's Memories mini kit.
Hope you like these shares. Leave me a comment. I love to hear from you guys.
