Trixie Scraps and Connie Prince have teamed up again to release a kit that applies to so many facets of our daily lives - Everybody Fights Sometimes.  Whether you are a wife (or a husband) or a mom (or a dad), you have probably learned by now that Everyone Fights Sometimes! Whether your hubby has said something dumb and landed himself a spot sleeping on the couch... or your kids just won't quit squabbling, we've got the kit to help you scrap it out! Everyone Fights Sometimes is a jam-packed kit full of great theme-specific wordart and lots of versatile papers and elements, too - making this kit great for scrapping not only the troublesome days, but the fun ones, too! 

As usual, I just LOVE the plaid paper in here!!  So many pretty colors, too!!

Summertime.. And the Living is Easy

Ahh, summer!  Amy Stoffel's new kit just says SUMMER SUMMER SUMMER! Summertime…it's all about days filled with swimming, eating corn on the cob and all kinds of juicy fruits, ice cream cones melting faster than you can lick them, laying on a blanket in the shade of a tree watching the clouds pass by, and so much more. Then, when the days get too hot to go outside you can sit down and scrap all your summer photos using ‘And The Living Is Easy’. This huge kit offers 18 papers, 55+ summertime elements, 23 word strips and a fun bead alpha.  It was perfect for my pics of my boys playing in the sprinkler.

It's perfect for the summer pictures you've got and those still to come!

Change Your Fate

Trixie Scraps and Britt-ish Designs teamed up this week to release a gorgeous new kit inspired by the movie, 'Brave' called Change Your Fate. This kit is an homage to a new breed of "magical" movie princess... one who is strong and brave, who chooses to buck tradition and forge her own path. This collection is perfect for pages about pursuing your dreams, changing your own fate, being brave, and writing your own story. Use this collection to scrap about your Scottish and Irish heritage photos as easily as you can your photos of trips to the Green Isle! Document your time at the movies on opening weekend... or take a hike and use the natural elements in this kit to scrap about that, too!  This kit just worked perfectly for my pictures from my Ireland Reunion this past spring.

Here's a preview of the kit:

This beautiful Celtic-inspired kit will surprise you again and again with its versatility and scrap-ability.

My sweet dog

It was a sad week at our house last week when we lost our sweet pug Thunder.  She was a wonderful part of the family for over 11 years.  I could see how fast she was going downhill and am so glad I took these pictures on the last 2 days she was with us.  I wanted to make a page to celebrate her life and this kit by Trixie Scraps was just perfect.
