New Christmas Magic Kit Release!

I've been hard at work doodling a new kit called Christmas Magic available at my Two Peas Store! You'll find lots of fun Christmas elements and paper, along with some snowy items that I couldn't help throwing in also. Up here in Northern Michigan we recently got 6-8 inches of the white stuff so I'm definitely in the mood for winter! Hope you enjoy the new kit! Feel free to leave some comments and let me know what you think! Hugs - Jen

New Class at Jessica Sprague

Monday I started a new class at Jessica Sprague - Computer Tricks for Cards! I'm trying to set a little "me time" aside and thought this was the perfect way to do it. Yesterday I created this card by printing her template out and then tearing, inking and assembling it. I've never done much in the way of hybrid since I'm either doing all digital or all traditional, but I really enjoyed making this card! Might have to try a bit more of this hybrid stuff!

Little Dreamer Apprentice Program!

I haven't had time to post for the last couple of weeks so I figured I would combine them. I did end up making it to Round 3 and 4 of the Little Dreamer Apprentice Program, but ended up not making it to the Final Round! What a bummer! I was almost there! LOL! Oh well, I had a wonderful time, met some really cool people and learned a TON from Michelle Coleman - who is an outstanding designer!! I'm really proud of myself for making it that far! So if you're interested in getting my Round 3 Freebie here's the link. Even though I made to Round 4, my kit won't be there since I didn't make it into the Final Round.

I can't believe!!! I made it into Round 3 of the Little Dreamer Apprentice Program! This last week has been crazy and wonderful all at the same time. I've learned so much from Michelle at Little Dreamers in just one week and had an amazing time getting to know all the artists! This time we had to create 4 elements - one with glitter, one metal, one with stitching and then one of our choice. They will be posted soon on the Little Dreamers Site to download for free so when that happens I will let you know. I can't wait to find out what's in store for this upcoming week!

Easter Weekend

Hope everyone had a fantastic Easter Weekend! I started the weekend out over at Two Peas in a Bucket at their Online Crop Friday night. What a great time! It's always fast and furious and I can never believe how quickly the time goes by, but WOW - what a lot of fun! I only completed 2 of 4 challenges: the first one was using a template that Jen Martakis created and the other one was use one of your posts from Facebook/Twitter and create a layout. Both challenges were a blast and really made you think out of the box! Here's what I created Friday night:

The materials I used for this layout: template from Jen Martakis at Two Peas in a Bucket; paper, waves, bubbles, fish and sun from Julia Makotinsky at Little Dreamer Designs; the title letters, heart and tape were from Gina Marie Huff and Heidi Williams at Weeds and Wildflowers Design.

My second layout I finished (yes I was very slow Friday night!) is this:

This is the layout I created from one of my Facebook posts. I really like how it turned out! I think I will continue doing layouts from my FB posts from time to time. Materials for this layout were from all from Weeds and Wildflowers Design, except for the Vintage Frame which is something I created! :0) I've been working on some more digital artwork and I'll be posting some layouts soon that I've been using them on.

The rest of the weekend was spent hanging out with friends and family at a joint birthday party for my husband and I, watching my little ones hunt for eggs and their baskets, attending church Easter morning, lunch with my in-laws and then dinner at my mom and dad's. I love weekends like this when it's shared with friends and family!

The kids had a great time Easter morning running this way and that in a mad search for eggs and baskets! My littlest one is allergic to red dye in food and candy so we had to *email* the easter bunny to ask him to send stuff without red dye. When she found her basket, she was thrilled to find a chocolate bunny, organic suckers and hard candies, Tiger's Milk protein bars and a note pointing the kids to the freezer where they each found a little container of ice cream! She told me, "Mommy! The Easter Bunny got our email! I can eat everything!!" My husband, Steve, picked the kids out a couple of presents a couple of weeks ago when he was away for work. We asked the kids if they wanted us to hide their presents from Mom and Dad just like the Easter Bunny does and of course the answer was "Yes"! Luke, our oldest, loves to fish just like his dad so the gift Steve had picked out was a fishing pole. We ended up lying it on the dining room table, knowing that Luke would never think it was his! We were right! Took him about 10 minutes to realize that was HIS present! He's such a sweetheart!

Inspiration and New Ideas!

Hi All! It's been a while! I keep visiting some awesome blogs and I've been inspired to start my up again! I've also been working on some digital scrapbooking designs and have gotten really great response about them! I would love to be able to create for 2Peas or another amazing company, and thought this seems like the best way to promote my creations. I have so many ideas floating around in my head that and I'm really excited to start putting them into digital form! I've also been playing around with my blog design. I found this awesome site - www. - and found this beautiful background! I also redid my header from my own elements - I really like how it came out. I'm going to be changing a few more things in the days to come.

Here's one of the new kits I've been working on:
