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
For all the designers in the bunch, it's that time again, Kim Broedelet has released her March CU Grab Bag. As always, there are awesome goodies to be had. Here's a little sneek peek at what's inside.
This is "Little Sprite", a freebie mini kit I made for Kim's monthly Colour Challenge at DSO. She gives her team a color swatch and we create a mini kit. With all ours together you get a fun full kit filled with many different styles. I just checked and there are tons already posted!! Here's my contribution. Click below to download.
I have one more freebie to share. I was just horsing around with a few of my templates and styles and came out with these. I thought they were cool so thought I'd share them with you :) CU and S4H friendly.

They're made with love in honor of her friends. For my layout, I picked someone I love dearly to play with, my beautiful little girl :)Here is a peek at all the other goodies Kim has made for us in this kit.

Here's a sneak peek of the kit!! Don't forget to stop back by Valentines day and "hop aboard" our blog train :-)

I've been playing around with Enchanted Studios February Challenges. I made my "Little Charmer" for the Fairytale Storybook Challenge. I used the papers from Jen and Bonnie's "Chic Shac". There are AWESOME papers in this kit!!

While I was making my "charming you" tag, I started playing with all my pretty fonts and wasted a whole day LOL!! Some I really liked so I saved them to share as freebies. Here are a few "Romance Phrases Tags" for Valentines Day.

CLICK HERE to download. I used Kim Broedelet's new textures from her February CU Grab Bag to make the paper background for the tags. Kim's revealed all the goodies inside her grab bag on her blog so be sure to stop by and take a peek. You get 6 brand new CU products for one low price. But only until February 16th. Then each kit goes full price.
