One Buck Wednesday

Today, you can get the Carnivale Photo Booth Frames from Kitschy Digitals for only $1.00:

You DO NOT have to be a digital scrapper to use these. I just print them out onto white cardstock, measure the area for the photos, then print the photos that size to layer over the top on my page. Or, you could add the photos in on the computer, and print everything out together. They'll be $1.00 until midnight tonight, so head over to and get yours!

Our Sweet Boy.

Just a couple new photos of our sweet kid:

He's growing so fast, but it's a blast, let me tell you. He has a mind of his own, and he's hilarious! I am cherishing every single little moment with him.

Tribal Bellydancer

My sister and I both used to bellydance up until about 2 years ago. We never got to do photos of her in costume when she was dancing, so last time I went up for a visit, we got her all dolled up in my Tribal stuff and did some photos. I haven't edited ALL of the ones that I like, but here are two of my favorites:

She's just gorgeous. I LOVE taking photos of her! She's wearing one of my button can see it in the black and white one.

Still working like crazy on new embellishments that will be appearing in the shop update in about a month. I'm also on a purging kick. I'm so closed in in my craft room by all the STUFF, and feel the need for space and simplicity. Good thing my friend is having a yard sale here soon when it cools off a bit. Cause I'm getting rid of LOTS.

New Kitschy Digitals Kit

Danielle has released another awesome Kitschy Digitals kit, Calico Dream:

It comes with tons of cute, retro calico papers, as well as flower cut-outs and a sheet of printable gift tags! Here is the layout I did using the kit:

As always, I printed all the elements and papers out onto textured Bazzill, then paper scrapped as usual. The background paper and red scallop are Sassafras.

And bonus- all the Kitschy Digitals kits, including the new one, are 30% off this week through Sunday over at!

Hey, two posts in one week! I'm getting better. I want to stay on top of my blog. I'm going to start having a giveaway every Monday here in about a month. Gotta get to planning lil' man's first birthday! More to come soon, I still have lots to share!

Waaay behind on posting. Eeeep.

So, first off, to make you smile, here's a cute photo of my little man:

This is his 9 month photo. And he's already 10 1/2 months. And I JUST did some 10 month photos (although I DO take photos of him almost every day!). Ack. He was "talking" to me when I took the photo. This one's my favorite yet, though, and it's gonna be hard to beat!

My two latest layouts:

This one uses the Chalkboard Papers kit from Kitschy Digitals. I printed out parts of the papers, then cut out the shapes to use. I used actual chalk to write the "teehee" onto the paper.

On this one I used the Candy Coated Garden kit, also from Kitschy Digitals. These flowers just look AMAZING printed out. They look so real and jump right off the paper. It was fun doing a girly page. The doilies, frame, and feathers are also from KD. Here's a detail shot:

I've been working on some fun new embellishments for my poor, neglected Etsy shop. I've been selling my vintage button rings at the shop I work at (and they've been selling like CRAZY!), so I haven't made much else. I'm aiming to get a lot of stuff made and get my shop full and running by the time I go back to work full time in mid-October. That gives me plenty of time to not stress over it!

Lots more to come: Bellydancing photos of my sister, a handmade paper Blythe dress, and a new girl coming soon!
