My Little Bug Catchers

My girls love bugs. I mean, LOVE bugs. They are forever huddled over little creepy crawlies, asking questions, watching their every move and learning. Some bugs even get named like Kate the Slater. I have so many bug photos it's not even funny, so when I laid eyes on this gorgeous kit, Little Bug Catcher from DigiDesigned by Denise I had to have it!

I love the colours and all the cute bugs! I really love how this LO turned out, too:

Backyard + Our Tree

I am trying to scrap our backyard renovation progress, this is my most recent LO, the photo was taken after James spread out our gravel.

  I used Seeds of Tomorrow by Marshmella Designs, which can be found at Digiridoo Scraps.

This month's free Collab, with any purchase at Digiridoo is this awesome kit, Tree Hugger
 It was the perfect kit for some tree climbing photos I took before a storm blew our lovely tree down :( I also used Color with Caryn's DSO challenge template, which you can grab here for free if you want to participate.

A little bit of Color with Caryn!

For this layout of one of the happy moment amongst the drama on Father's Day, I joined in with the September Template Challenge over at Digiridoo. The lovely Caryn hosts this challenge and every month she has another gorgeous and versatile template to offer us.

This month's template:

I also used a kit by Caryn which is named for her Mom, Joan. It's a beautiful kit!

Caryn is also hosting another Template Challenge over at DigiScrap Obsession and while I have yet to participate, I have to say I love, love, love this template!

So, pop over and join in!

Inspiring Me

With my mojo still on the low side, I am looking for challenges to whet my creative appetite and now that Digiridoo Scraps is back and in full swing I am finding so many July challenges that are really inspiring me.

Infact, I have already finished another LO this month - I had thought that one more layout might be pushing it after so much time away, but with a beautiful free template for Caryn's Template Challenge and a beautiful kit from one of the new designers at DRS, NathDesigns, it wasn't hard at all.

This is the template - I love how simple yet beautiful it is.

The kit I used is called Girl's Musings and is so soft and gorgeous:

I had no trouble at all scrapping a page - it also helps to have a wonderful subject ;)

I'm Back, Baby!!!

I have been suffering from a major lack of mojo, pregnancy complaints (just ask my husband, I complain ALOT) and one illness on top of the other. I have missed my scrapping and especially my scrappy friends, but I am back now. I am still not feeling particularly creative. I'll just have to work through it, I think :)

Tonight I finished my first LO in maybe a week (or more. Who knows, I don't even know what day it is anymore). I used Color With Caryn's portion of July's Pick Your Bits at DSO; French Country Papers & French Country Glitter

I was inspired by the Layer it Up Challenge over at DRS, which is being hosted by the lovely Kristie of Snippets Inc. If you join us, you will get this PP from Scrappin' Mint, which coordinates with all the other PPs for July, so the more challenges you participate in, the more you'll have in your kit!

If you're loving the papers and glitters I used on my LO, you'll be please to know Caryn is going to have a sale to celebrate the 4th of July. Be sure to pop over to her stores to grab yourself a bargain!
