New Template Pack and 2 Freebie Thank You Note Templates

Okay, I’ve finished my lastest template pack.  If you are interested in purchasing my newest 10 pack of templates for the special price of $5, please send a request, along with the $5 payment, via Pay Pal to with NEW TEMPLATE Pack in the Subject or Notes line.   You will receive a link to your files usually within 3-12 hours

Here’s a preview of the template pack:


And of course, a link the the freebie Thank You Card Templates you’ve been waiting for.  These template cards are saved in layered PSD files to make customization easier for you.  Create the card with the blanks, print them out, and have your child fill in the blanks.  Makes saying thank you that much easier.

I am no longer selling my templates in stores.  It is just too much work for me to keep up with a store and my blog and my photography business.  And remember, if you live in the Austin Area and are looking for an affordable Lifestyle Photography, please visit BFA Photography and contact me. 

Blessings and Happy Scrapping!

What’s Been Going On?

Well, for one thing, I have been creating LO for the lovely designers who allow me to use their designs.  It’s been one crazy of a semester.  It started off fairly easy and ended with me in bed, twice.  After running 3 5ks in a week’s time, I suffered from a stress fracture.  A stress fracture in which nothing but staying off it and wearing a blue boot will relieve any pain.  Thankfully, I am all healed up and have been given the go to start training again –a 1/2 marathon this time. I’m going to do it, and I’m going to do it well.  I’m very excited.  But before I can start training, I have to get over this LOVELY Sinus and Lower Respiratory Infection that has been lingering for months.  We are starting month 2 with a terrible cough, and a pulled rib muscle.  Sucks. 

But that hasn’t kept me from taking photos.  If you’re in the Austin Area and are looking for a lifestyle photographer, please see my new photography business BFA Photography for any information or to book a session.  A complete session is $150 for 1 – 2 on location to take the photos.  Within a week you will receive a CD with up to 50 files for you to view, print, and enlarge.  I offer printing, and “extras” like collages, black and white, and storyboards, as well as cards and announcement for an additional fee. 

Feel free to contact me.  Again, enough about the photography business.  My scrapbook business has taken a hiatus, and I am loving receiving emails asking for more of my templates so I’ve decided to just sell them here on my blog.  So tell others about it.  Some of the items will be on specials, others will be full price.  Some will be old, and some will be new. But all I know, is they will be templates!

And some will just be fun.  This LO that I’ve created this evening using Ice Storm by Flergs, is available as a template for $2.  If you love the kit, be sure to grab it from scrapbookgraphics – Ice Storm.


If you want the template, you can send me a request for the template by sending  $2 through pay pal –  with JOY Template in subject line.  Here’s the template, not in action.  It is saved in layered PSD files at 3600 DPI.  Once I receive your payment, I will happily email you the zip folder location :)


I will have another template pack coming soon.  I’m very excited about getting back into the groove of things, not just at home, with photography, and in general, but also in the digital scrapbooking world.

MIA - and a FREEBIE from Flergs

Well, I've been MIA for a while.  Scrapping has seemed to become a quiet pastime of mine.  But that will be changing as I have a new class to scrap as well as a school year for each of my kiddos.  I'm still finishing up my class scrapbook from last year.  I've been stuck on the last couple pages - just can't seemed to sit down and finish them.  Of course, now that I've said that, I will sit down and do that today.  Need to get them done so I can send the links to my parents and let them relive the Three's class at Noah's Ark in pictures.

I'm the Historian for Hannah's PTA so along with her personal class scrapbook, I will be creating a scrapbook for the entire school year.  Of course, due to permissions, privacy etc, I won't be able to share those pages.  But I will share the ones I create as a Mommy for my both children.  I guess I should get started.

Flergs has some great new stuff out - her RAWKING kit for boys, Carver, for one.


And I couldn't be more excited about the new kit coming out on the 25th.  Here's a sneak peek.


To make up for my lack of blogging, I wanted to share with you this adorable elements pack that Flergs has on her blog for FREE.  We've missed the sale, but the freebie link is still good.  If you love it, be sure to tell her.  This is something new she's thinking about making more of.  Click on the image to go to her blog and grab the freebie!!

Battle of the Creative Teams

So, I'm totally honored to work on Flergs' (Megs Farrow) Creative Team.  Totally honored.  I've been having so much fun working with her designs (which are totally amazing).  This summer, DigiScrapAddict is hosting the Battle of the Creative Teams, and I am working alongside with some pretty amazing ladies.  We had our first assignment last week.  White Space.  We chose to not only use white space but also make that space white.  Pretty cool, although my LO looks more gray than white.  LOL  Here are the LOs that our team created.  We all used the same kit, Mellisa and Mellisa II with backgrounds from various other kits of Megs'.








We made it though Round one and were even named CO-MVPs for this week. So again, can you see why I'm honored?


I took Ashley's bridal portraits so I've been having a blast creating a special book for her. These two were made with Kaylee's Garden and Flairy Floss

A friend of mine posted a link to this contest. Since we're wanting to travel to PA this summer via Southwest, I couldn't help but play along.
