My Last CT Layouts for May - Michelle Pieters' Celebrista

My last 2 CT LOs for the month. I've had so much fun with these kits this month. Thank you so much guys for letting me work with some great designers and awesome kits. My last two LOs are for Michelle Pieter's Celebrista kit. I had hoped to scrap my GS 2nd b-day with it but we had to postpone his party until this Sunday (5-30) and I didn't want to be in such a rush to finish it, so I went back and pulled some pics from his last b-day - the big number 1 - that I had been meaning to scrap for a while. They were perfect for the kit. I just love the browns, blues, greens, and beiges in the kit. You will find the kit at Digitals here:

Since both are from my GS's first birthday, they're called Bryce's 1st Birthday 1 and 2.
The first focus only on his cake face and the second has various pics from this b-day. The second was also made for the Ad Challenge. Hope you like.

More CT Layouts for Lynne Simmons with Delightfully Spring and Photo Word Templates

Gosh, I feel like my friend Vicky (LOL) posting so many layouts at a time. I'm having a blast right now scrapping. Really got some mojo going. Anyway, these layouts are made using Lynne Simmons' Delightfully Spring Kit and her Photo Word Templates - Kids at Play. Both are awesome kits. I've been trying to make the Word templates for a while and managed one with my GS's name but it's no where near the quality of these. You can find Delightfully Spring at Digitals here: and the Photo Word Templates - Kids at Play here:

The first Layout is called Happy Easter 09 and is of pics made Easter morning and at our Easter Celebration at my aunt's house. All the kids in the pic are cousins. This layout was made for the Scraplift Challenge at Digitals. The Second Layout is called Fun with Friends and is of my GS with his friends at Play School during their Easter Party. Hope you like.

Another CT Layout Share - Lynne Simmons' Boys Will Be Boys

Hi guys,

Here two more layouts. I'm on a roll this week. Both are made using Lynne Simmon's Boys Will Be Boys kit.
The first I call simply Boys will be Boys and is of my GS rocking like crazy on his rocking horse. The horse was made by a family friend for his mother's 1st birthday. Needless to say it survived her without a scratch but I'm not sure if the horse or my GS will survive this time around. He's so rough on it and loves to ride it standing up. Pic was made after telling him numerous times to "sit down". This LO was made for the Sketchy Details Challenge at Digitals.

Second LO is titled "Why I scrap?" and was made for the Me, My, Mine Challenge at Digitals. Why do I scrap? Simple. My family.

The kit can be found at

Now for what you've been looking for. Hope you like.

CT Layout Shares with Michelle Pieter's Cherry Chocolate Kisses

Gosh this month has flown by. I've been really busy this month with my daughter's graduation, GS 2nd Birthday, Dance Recitals and performances, extra stuff at work, and caring for my mom. For those of you who have been following her battle - this month has been rough. Her blood has been up and down, fluids building up in her lungs, cancer markers are up and she missed several big events which have gotten her really down. I think it's finally hit her that she might not be strong enough to kick this, which has got me down some too. Scrapping is my release and I haven't been able to scrap lately so needless to say her mood has rubbed off on me. I've been trying to shake it this week and have gotten some real scraping mojo back. I'm even looking forward to a new project I'm working on for you guys set to go live on June 7. So keep checking back. Anyway I thought I would share some of the layouts I've been working on.

Here's two of my layouts for Michelle Pieter's this month. I used her Cherry Chocolate Kisses and the new Sparklicious borders on them. The first one I call "The Moms in My Life" these people inspire me on a daily basis.

You can find it in Digital's gallery here and is part of the He Said, She Said Challenge:
The second Layout is called Senior Prom '09 and is of my DD & SIL on this special occasion. You can find it in the Digitals gallery here:

I just love the Sparklicious borders it adds the perfect glitz to any page and the Cherry Chocolate Kisses kit was just perfect for these layouts. You can find these two kits here: and here: . Thanks Michelle for letting me use them.
