Crescent Moon Designs-Feeling Lucky-FREEBIE ALERT



Saint Patrick's Day is just around the corner!  Here's a super kit that has all the Irish elements for scrapping your photos for this fun day!  It even has a rainbow for that pot of gold treasure.  Click the title to head to Charly's store now to grab it and get started.  I myself don't celebrate this holiday although I have about maybe 1/4 Irish in me.  But I love all the parades and characters.

This first layout is in honour of my dear departed Mom who was 1/2 Scot and 1/2 Irish.


 And this layout is of my dear great granddaughter Kady who loves all things magical.

I have a Brag Book page freebie created using the Feeling Lucky kit.  Here is a preview and a link to download.

Country Live Graphics-Summer Afternoon



So, are you patiently waiting for the spring/summer season to start?  I know I am getting so antsy to have this miserable, freezing cold and tons of snow winter to end!  Here is a gorgeous delightful kit to chase away those blahs!  Soft, pretty pastel colours, flowers, summer furniture, summer drinks and super papers. Hint, even some art journaling look ones!!  I know Liv is a perfectionist and nothing is thrown together without her fussiness showing through.  I love this kit and I have used my sister who passed Feb 6/14.  We spent one wonderful day last year at my place at the lake, exploring the back roads and taking tons of pictures.  This was taken that day.  What a wonderful memory I have of that day and so gratified that we did it.  The other layout is of my great granddaughter Kady, who turned 5 on Feb 26/14.  She loves purple as I do so it was a no brainer to do this one for her.

Our members mean so very much to us.  The 3-year old son of one our members was just recently diagnosed with Neuroblastoma Cancer last week. This is something they would have never thought would happen to their family.  It is Stage 4, as this type of cancer is often not symptomatic until that time. He will have to go through some aggressive chemo, then surgery to remove his tumor, then more chemo. There is a 40-50% survival rate, but his doctors are very optimistic. This family has 3 other small children and a new baby on the way. Together, the Scraps N Pieces designers developed an amazing kit called Little Warrior, to help raise funds that will cover some of their costs at this time. This kit is a beautiful children’s hospital themed collab that chronicles the journey that this little warrior is facing. All proceeds from the sale of this kit will go to this little family to help with expenses.

Scraps N Pieces-Bits N Pieces-Karen Diamond Designs-The Inner Song In Me


Music lovers rejoice!!  I love music and this kit is just awesome.  Look, it even has bright shiny hand bells! My late husband played the guitar, the violin, the banjo and even plunked away at the piano.  All his family, 4 boys and one girl all played musical instruments and we were treated to a lot of spontaneous jam sessions! Even my great granddaughter tried out the piano one day.
