Newest LO

Before I head to bed, I have to share this LO that I created tonight at the Sunshine Wonder Week Speed Scrap #2.  Basically we had to create a LO in a total of 2 hours following certain steps.  So I killed 3 birds with one stone tonight and did this LO for the Speed Scrap, an AUGUST CT, and my last Sweet Shop Challenge for July.  And well, I just love it! Remember for credits, click on the LO!

I don't believe it, but I will post it. . it's crazy.. . . really really crazy

You Are Classical Music

You are a somewhat serious person who enjoys studying subjects deeply.

Art of all kinds interests you, and a good piece of art can really effect you emotionally.

You are inspired by human achievement, and you appreciate work that takes years to accomplish.

For you, the finer things in life are not about snobbery - they're about quality.

Marathon Scrappin'

First and foremost - I have three entries in my Brag Book Template Challenge Layout Contest.  Here are the three entries.  Remember to click on each LO for full credits.




And this was a very hard decision for me!!!  I love all three of these LOs equally so I had my DD pick the LO that she liked best.  And she chose the "pink" layout!!  So, Digi Dandy Designs, you have won my Brag Book Collection #3!  Be on the lookout for an email or PM from me.  Actually, I need you to send me an email (rosemc99ATgmailDOTcom).

As for the other participants, you will once again receive a 35% off coupon!!! :)

Introducing Greta Lynn

So, my children were informed earlier this week that they have a new cousin. Their "Opa," as the new grandpa wants to be called (although there is still some discussion going on about that name), told Hannah at VBS that they have a new baby cousin. She's sooo excited and now referring to Leah and Christyn as "Aunt." It's so cute. And Cayden sees photos of Mr. S and says, "That's Opa!!"

I guess I should explain, my childhood best friend and her husband welcome their first child, a daughter, into the world. Greta Lynn was born on July 2nd. I've been having so much fun working with all the photos Leah has sent me of her. I have the actual files so I am loving the fact that I'm creating something that can actually be printed!!

So without further ado, here's Aunt Rosie's, Greta Album!

Layout Contest Winner

So, I had several people participate in my LO Contest challenge.  I am so impressed with all of the LOs.  They were fantastic, but the one that caught my eye the most was this one by ScrappinHillBillySweetPea.  The kit she's chosen to work with and that photographer just make the LO absolutely DARLING!  So ScrappinHillBillySweetPea, you've just won yourself my template pack.  I will PM you at DST with a coupon code!


But just for kicks, here are the other entries.  And although I didn't tell you, there is a consolation prize - a 35% off coupon to my store as well! :)

And thanks for playing along!!!  There will be more challenges in the futures.

New Brag Book Collection

I've got a new Brag Book Template Collection out in my stores!!  It's a collection of 18 very awesome templates.  This time, however, I've created them in both 5x7 and 4x6 PSD format.  And because I love y'all sooo much, and I've decided that I am loving having fun LO contests, I'm giving away another template for you to create a LO with. . . and next week, I will choose from the LOs and give away the entire Brag Book Template Collection 3.

So, here's the template you get to work with.  Pretty fun, huh?  Very simple, but it's going to make some amazing LOs!!  Click on the image for the freebie link.


And here's the preview to the new collection, which is on sale at 50% off all three of my stores - KJOI Studios, Scrapper's Zone, and Groovy Scraps




And just because,  I went ahead and put all my templates on sale (excluding my Christmas Card templates).  And starting tomorrow, all of my products will be on sale for 60% off at Scrapper's Zone, so why not go and shop 'til you drop.
