Kathie Stevens Designs-Breast Cancer Surviving With Love

We all know or have known or have had this horrible disease make it's presence known in our lives.  Kathie has put together this adorable kit to help you scrap the memories of those you want to remember and how they made an impact on your life.  The kit is versatile enough that it can be used for other themes too.  Cute monkies, teddy bears, pretty pinks and a whole lot of elements! And when you purchase the kit you get an additional bonus in the form of 12 glitter papers, a $3.00 value. I chose to scrap my Aunt Myla and her photos of her nurses' training a long time ago.

Marniejo's House of Scraps-Manic Monday-Buttons and Bows

Buttons and Bows-the title makes me think of times of yore, those years when everyone would dress in their finery and stroll around town or pose with their new automobile.  Marilyn's kit surely fits this vision.  But there are many elements and papers that can be used for any theme you wish.  Here is what I've created:

This layout is of Kady, my great granddaughter and her first year of really being able to understand what snow is all about.  She loves winter and playing and enjoying the winter weather. 

Here are my Dad, Valdi and my brother Barry cutting wood for the stove.  This was taken approximately in the early 40's.  Looks like a clear, crisp cold day!

Wilma4Ever-CT Contest

There currently is a contest going on at Wilma4Ever that could have you become their next Creative Team Member.  So click the link under the ad and head over there now to join in the fun.  The following layouts are my contribution to the contest.  I chose this beautiful snowman kit from Galerie de Jackie entitled Joyous Snowman.  But the really fun part is you get to choose any kit you want other than bundles and commercial use to create your layouts for the contest.

My granddaughter Samantha loves the winter, sliding and building snowmen then going in for hot chocolate.

My first granddaughter, Charlene building a snowman back in 1988.

Marniejo's House of Scraps-Manic Monday-Secret Woods

What an adorable assortment of woodland creatures and playmates!  There is the cutest little deer, some tiny little fairies, special little houses and a whole lot more.  I love fantasy and creating little scenes to bring it all to life.  So just click under the preview and head over to grab this super kit Marilyn has put together for us.

As you can see I so enjoyed working with this kit that I kind of got carried away.

Marniejo's House of Scraps-Manic Monday-Passionate Pink

Look at that darling little teddy just dancing for joy!  Pink, the universal colour for sugar and spice and everything nice!  Gem, hat, flowers, a feather and lots more.  Click that link and head over to grab Marilyn's sweet kit now.

My layouts are my two favourite subjects-my great granddaughter Kady and flowers.  

My neighbour Lloyd grows the most beautiful Dahlia's ever.  This is just one of his many bulbs he puts in every year.

My great granddaughter Kady loves dancing.  Top photo is a dance she calls the Robot and the other is her Halloween Butterfly costume.

Marniejo's House of Scraps-Manic Monday-Basic Black

Sometimes with all the gorgeous colours that are available for our digi scrapping we forget about our basic black.  Marilyn has created this very pretty kit with just a hint of colour to relieve the black.  I love black and white and hope I did her kit justice with my layouts.  The kit name links to her kit at My Memories store.  

My first layout is of my great granddaughter Kady relaxing in from of the fire, trying to stay warm in our cold climate.

This layout is circa 1942 and features my brother Barry holding me as a small baby.
