Digital Point Of View

And the winner is.... Sorashell!!!
Please e-mail me (Christy) at AquaRubyMom [at] gmail [dot] com for your coupon to Danielle's store. :)

Hi Everyone,

Well, Christmas is finally over and I am still tired from the past few days of visiting family and preparing for Christmas Day. So let me see what I can share with you today. I know I have seen a few events I wanted to share with you.

First off if you have little girls and have not entered Jaime Young's doll house giveaway visit her blog to learn how you can get your entry in.

How cool! Look Catscrap's has a nice quickpage set freebie on their blog. I usually don't use quickpages but I really do like those.

An exciting sale going on right now is We Are Storytellers Big End Of Year Sale. The entire store is 50% off. I sure wish I had a few dollars to spare but the sale is till the 4th so that is planty of time plus I like to splurge on the last day of the sale. Also stop by the Tales Forum for a couple of freebies. Emily Powers also has some old freebies on her blog so if you have not picked them up here is a link. Look in the upper left corner.

Yet another freebie on Jackie Larsen's Blog. I just love her realistic paper and felt pieces. She has many freebies available so check them out of you have not snagged them.

Have you ever heard of a scrap store giving away the whole store monthly without requiring you to use their products. Well, its gonna go down at Pixel Gypsy Designs starting in January.
Here is a link to a thread with all of the details.

OOO! Look here is a little thread I found at MSA saying that Kasia Designs is having a call. That would be a fun team to be on.

Well, I know I could probably come up with more and will run into several items I will think I should have shared that with my blog readers. But my favorites folder was erased when I had my computer problems a few weeks ago so my browsing is limited to what I think to visit off the top of my head. I guess I better go on a favorites hunt. Why don't you link me up to your favorite sites? That would be fun and helpful.

Ok gotta go. Look out for the winner of Danielle Young's Giftcard. I wish it were me. =)

12/24/2008 Featured Layouts! Merry Christmas Eve!

Merry Christmas Eve! LOL My oldest son has gone all week long counting down the day till Christmas by adding "eve" to the end of every day. So, Sunday was Christmas eve eve eve eve! ;) I'm just glad we are finally down into the level I can actually figure out with out much thought! Last week was a killer to figure out! HAHA!! I was like "Why don't you right it down and then come back and I'll tell you if your right!" ;)

I'm gonna make this short and sweet... and Christmas oriented. First up is a Layout that was linked last week to Mr Linky, By Anneofalamo.

I love her Journaling on this layout, and how it tells a story of Change, friendship and giving. The colors chosen are perfect for the winter feel of the page. And I love the first block of paper with the white tree on it.. Its just Beautiful!! Please everyone, stop by her page and leave her some Love!!

Next up is a layout I found in the Gallery at DST. I was looking for Christmas Layouts, and when I saw this one I just HAD to feature it!!!

Isn't this just too darn cute!?!? I love the memory scrapped here! I can just imagine sitting on a beach on Christmas, and thinking.. "You know, who needs snow!!! We've got sand!!!" In fact, I'm pretty sure, since moving to Texas when I was 8... there have been a few Sandmen in my life! I totally forgot about it till seeing this layout, and now I want more than anything to pack the kids up and make the drive to Galveston and build us a Sandman to remember!!! 2 years ago, my sister had the treat of building a Sandman on the Beach while it was Snowing!! Wish I could have been there for that!

Anyway, enough about me!!... I LOVE how this layout is scrapped. From the title work, to the layering and framing of the sandman picture! Its totally a christmas theme, with a Sun filled twist! Love it! Please everyone, stop by her page and leave her some Genuine love!!!

And thats it for me today! Have a Very merry Christmas everyone!!! I hope that Today and Tomorrow bring you Peace, Love, Joy, and Lots of pictures to scrap!!!

Live, Love, Laugh... and Scrap Often!

12*23 Tuesdays with Christy

Hi again praisers. So have you finished all your holiday shopping, are the gifts all wrapped? Mine aren't -- LOL!! But I am also enjoying spending time with my family and creating lots of memories. I also want to take the time to remember that not everyone celebrates Christmas. Hannukah started yesterday and I found the most sweetest page to feature today.

Light the Menorah by bluefiji97

I love the colors she choose and that picture of her lighting the menorah is very sweet. Please stop by and leave her some love.

This next page is just so much fun, how could I not feature it.
Diggin' on Dr. Bubbles by Sorashell

There is so much movement and excitement exuding from this page -- I just love it!!

Well that is it for me today, I hope you have a wonderful Christmas, Hannukah, Kwanzaa or Boxing Day, lol, or whatever holiday you will be celebrating this week.

12*21 Spotlight Sunday (continued)

Hello Praisers!! It's nice to see some new links added to Mr. Linky and to see some new posters as well. Welcome, we're happy to have you here. Now since we've been spotlighting Danielle Young, neither Lori or the other ladies had planned on making a post today, but that all changed when I got an e-mail today.

Danielle whipped up a kit today -- seriously just today and posted a brand new kit just in time for the new year. It's even called Brand New Year -- check it out:

And you can find it in her store: here.

Remember, keep posting those links in Mr. Linky and there is still time to pick up those QP freebies from Danielle's creative team on the teamblog.
