Did you think I was missing in action?? Well, I'm baaaaack! lol Life got busy and there wasn't much time for the fun stuff. I'm still trying to figure out why things in life happen in spurts like that? They can't equally be spread throughout the months, they have to happen all at one time! In my case, it was a really long spurt!
I did finally have some time to whip up a quick Easter page of my son. It's super simple but that's how I roll. :)

My friend Shanna Vineyard, has combined her love of hand-drawing and painting, mixed with her fondness of bright, happy colors to bring us a kit that is different than anything you’ve ever seen!
In celebration of her moving back home to Arizona, she was inspired to create and call this kit “Home Is Where the Heart Is”. It includes over 50 different hand-drawn and painted images. They can be used in your digital projects or can easily be resized and printed to cut out and use with your traditional scrapbooking/paper crafting projects.
The possibilities are endless and you'll have them to use over and over again as much as you'd like for as many projects as you wish! How cool is THAT!?
She's invited over 20 of her favorite digital/paper crafters to create projects using her new kit. I'm over the moon excited that I was one of them!! Here's what I came up with...
My layout is 100% digital. I love how the little embellishments in the kit give it a more "handmade" look. Not to mention, isn't that bee the cutest thing you've ever seen!? I LOVE him! :)
My card is also 100% digital. It's super simple but perfect for when you need something quick and don't have the time to bust out your paper and glue! I'll be uploading this to my Pixingo studio and having it mailed to my son. It will be a fun little surprise in the mail just for him! :)
VISIT SHANNA'S BLOG to purchase this kit and see LOTS of other awesome samples that were created specifically to share with you today! In celebration of this fun new release, she's also doing a HUGE giveaway valued at over $275.00 worth of awesome new scrap goodies!! There are several ways you can win so head on over and check it out!!
Thanks for stopping by and happy crafting! :)

I still enjoy playing with my paper and glue but I've become quite addicted to this digital stuff! One of the many reasons I love it is because of how quickly I'm able to get my pages done. Not to mention it's pretty darn fun! This layout was created with a "quick page" and took me all of about 2 minutes! For my paper peeps that have no idea what that is... It's a pre-made page that you literally just stick a photo behind and your done! Of course you can add things to it if you'd like. I'm sorry, I don't remember who the designer is but I do know they did a super job! :)

This one was pretty fun! If you know me at all, you know I have a huge love for paper piecing. I love being able to take little scraps and turn them into my very own creations. It makes my heart happy! :) I used the same "paper piecing" technique only in digital format. Circles and strips of brown placed to create my tree all with a few clicks of a mouse. Gotta love that!

This one was a bit of a challenge for me but with a few suggestions, I think I got it now. Thanks friends! :) I used a kit called "Book Worm" by Kristen CB Designs. I do believe it's retired now but she's got SO many more cute ones to see! Have a terific tuesday everyone! :)
