Angel's Tears for Crazy Dayz

I hope you all have had a safe and happy week. I know we've had a HOT one!! That's Texas for you. Here is a page sent to me by Corinne (scrapcoco) using my "Sleepy Nods" mini. That was so cool to find it in my mailbox this morning. Thanks for sharing your awesome work with us Corrinne :-)

Kim Broedelet and Jen at Chaos Lounge got together for this gorgeous kit "Angel Tears", inspired by a famous South African wine. It's just lovely ladies. Wonderful work from two of my favorite designers!! You can snag it at Kim's store at DSO or Jen's store at Enchanted Studio's Scraps.

I really enjoyed playing with the kit. Here's a couple of the layouts I made with it. This first one is of a dear friend "Scooter's" wedding. The kit is PERFECT for vintage wedding pages.
Here is another. This is my handsome son on graduation day.
I made this page into a freebie Quick Page.

Don't forget about Enchanted Studio's "Fabulous $1 Fairy Finds". Here's a peek at what Jen at Chaos Lounge and Bonnie Van Esch has put up for us this week. The kits were so much fun to play with and Jen has made a really cute CU pack for the designers in the bunch.

Thanks so much for sharing it with us and using one of my kits for your fun fun tutorials Maggie :) I peeked and I might have to go play a bit LOL!!
Ok...I have to show off my new little "Duddly". He came to us a country pup, having happily spent his days chasing hens and baby ducks. But sadly, he's frazzled the hens so badly they've quit laying. So, little Duddly is now our city pup of leisure. Look's like he's adapted ;)I finally got to play with Kim's new kit "Moody Days". A fun fun kit. I started playing with it and for some reason I started thinking of paintings and I got all "retro" LOL!! Must be the cool grungy elements and papers :-) Here's what I ended up with. Here's a little peak at everything else in "Moody Days" to play with. I love the ripped paper leaves and the "grungy earthy feel" of the whole kit.
Here is my layout made into a Quick Page for ya'll.

Gone Buggin with Little Sprite

Last week I had the pleasure of working with two awesome new kits. This first layout is done with "Going Buggy" a fun new collab out by Jen at Chaos Lounge and Melissa Daniel Designs. This kit is truly fun to play with, nice work ladies!! I had so many ideas when I first opened it that it was hard to pick which way to go LOL. I'm sure these two are the first of many ;)
"Afternoon Chat With Berry Bluebird"

"Gone Buggin"
Here's a peek at all the other goodies inside. You can grab it here at Enchanted Studio Scraps. I absolutely love those clouds Jen. Just too cool!! Jen has made her cute little critters from "Going Buggy" into a CU template pack for us "Going Buggy Commercial Use".
Jen also has an excellent sale going on right now. She has three of my favorite kits of hers on sale for just $1. Be sure to take advantage of it, you won't regret it. I've personally played with all three kits and loved each one of them, so much fun to play with!! You can see these kits in action and grab a few freebie QP's I've made with a couple of them at these following posts of mine: Chick Shack, Rainy Day Blues, and Summer's End.
Also, be sure to stop by Enchanted Studios forum and enter Jen's contest. You could win a kit designed especially for you. You can find out all about it here at ESS's Forum.
The next kit I got to play with was a very special charity collab, a huge mega kit, "Spirit of Summer". You can find out more about it here and on both Kim Broedelet's and Jen's blogs.

The ladies all did an AWESOME job and I'm happy to say this collab was a huge success. It's not to late to snag it for yourself and help out the folks affected by the wildfires in Australia. I had titled this one "Beautiful Day" but I sent it to Kim without a title and she renamed it for me "Stroll in the Park". I like her's much much better ;) That is perfect for this picture Kim!!
Stroll in the Park
