I just wanted to stop by and let you know that Sya (syapotter) is the winner of the $10 GC from Flergs!!! Please e-mail me (Christy) at AquaRubyMom [at] gmail [dot] com.

I hope you ladies have a great weekend!!! I will see you on Sunday with our spotlight of Miss Mint from Peppermint Creative!!


Hello Praisers!! Christy here with some very exciting news. Valeri and I have decided that this blog is too much fun to just up and die, so we've decided to keep it going. I put the word out at DST and I now have a list of almost 20 designers who are willing to help sponsor us and award you ladies with prizes!!! So tell your friends, the more people we have come play with us -- the more praise and love you will receive.

I will be back later to announce the winner of the gift certificate to Flergs store, but in the mean time you gotta see her latest kit that she did with Kaye Winiecki of the Lily Pad. It is super cute!! And is available at both SBG and TLP!

Here is a page I did with it. :)

I am so excited!! Our next sponsor will be the fabulous Miss Mint (oh we will try and tell you ahead of time who are sponsors are from now too -- so tell your friends).

Thursday's Featured Layouts

Hey fellow scrappers. It is with sweet sorrow that this will be my last post on the GP blog. Life has gotten too busy for me and as much as I love showing you these wonderful layouts, somethings just has to give.

On with the layouts...

Capturing The Memories by Scraptigz

This one jumped out at me from the little thumbnail image. I love the cleanliness of the
LO (I think I've mentioned before that I have a weakness for a good clean layout) but yet it is still so classy. Be sure to stop by and give some good ole' genuine praise for her wonderful work.

Lovely Mathieu by Arumrose

I love the cluster of elements around the postage stamp frame in this layout and she did a great job on the blending. I also love that alpha - so fun!! Be sure to let her know how much you love her LO too!!

Well that's it for me. Thanks for stopping by and thanks for your wonderful comments. Together we can spread the genuine love that each of us deserve for our hard work in preserving our precious memories.

I love how she scrapped this, cropping to highlight his smile.. pointing it out just in case you didn't see it, with the arrow! :) I love all the empty space too, bringing your focus down to all the action. Oh, and her title work is Wonderful!!!! I love how she broke it up into three circles, and then squished the happy all together!! Just totally love it!!
Please everyone, stop by her page and leave her some love for this wonderful layout..... bet you will be smiling the entire time your there!!

Next up is....

This just totally made my day!! I love it!! Not only did it bring a smile to my face, it made me laugh out loud! I totally love her title work here, and the circles behind the pics! The pictures... what can I say? I think they speak for themselves!!! They totally needed to be scrapped!!! And mcturtle brought them to life in her layout wonderfully! I'm sorry, I'm giggling again.. cause I can sooooooo see my husband teaching my daughter to do the very same thing!!! Love it!!! I know I already said that... but I do LOVE it!!
Please everyone, stop by and leave her some genuine love!!

1*6 Tuesdays with Christy

Good afternoon praisers!! This will be the last Tuesday afternoons with Christy post. I am sad, but not really sure what to do. Lori has offered to allow us to continue to use the blog, so I am gonna put it out there -- if anyone would like to continue with this blog -- please let me know. You can reach me at AquaRubyMom [at] gmail [dot] com. I am currently on two teams myself and would love to continue this type of genuine, honest praising, but not so good with contacting people to help us -- like sponsors and such. Okay I didn't intend to ramble today, lol!! I am actually going to talk a little bit about Flergs and her awesome glitter actions!!

Flergs has some amazing tutorials about installing and using her glitter. Check them out: Glitter Style Tutorial and Sprinkled Glitter Tutorial. I love using her glitter -- they just add a fun contrast to a page. So I thought I'd highlight a few LOs using her glitter.

This one is just so sweet -- I see she used Flergs glitter styles on the title.

This next one is just gorgeous -- again the designer (Jenna) used Flergs glitter for her title. I just love how it makes the page.

And just for fun, here is one by Anne. I love this kit by Flergs -- such a great masculine kit.

Now remember leave a link in Mr. Linky -- you don't want to miss out on this fabulous gift certificate from Flergs -- she has gorgeous kits!!

1/5/2009 Featured Layouts

Hi Praisers,
Today's post will be short and sweet. I just want to remind you to enter your layout link in out Mr Linky for your chance to win a GC to Studio Flergs at Scrapbook Graphics.

So today's featured page is.............By Syapotter titled Go Fish This layout is so much fun! Of, course I love the journaling within the backet. I had to fave ot because of that creative touch. The title is just as clever and her page truly tells the story of this small moment! Thanks for sharing, Sya! PS Love the edges too! So our random pic is a ASDR entry. Did u know that kicked off yesterday? Well it did and Jenn rocked it in style! Its titled Happy New Year. I love this layout. Not only because I have watched all of these little ones grow up these past few years buit also because Jenn included alot of journaling here. We can understand her accomplishments in 2008 and see where she is headed in 2009. I am so proud of the work she has put into homeschooling and all around I think she is a fantastic mother. So please leave both of our loving Mom's extra love today.

Ok, talk to you later. Stop by tomorrow when Christy tells all about Flerg's Shadows!!!
