Digital Point of View 1/2/09

Wow, How strange it feels to type "o9"!

I apologize for the delay in this blog post. Sometimes it seems life has a plan all its own, regardless of what mine is.... and those two plans seem to clash! LOL The kids are doing better... though my oldest is very vocal in his "Discomfort" and Frustration over being sick. But all is getting better on the home front. Just wish I could bounce back as quickly as the kids do!

I stopped in over at Flergs Blog tonight, and saw that her morning post is already up!! And, its about a sale too! 6 of her kits are in the $dollar, deal of the day$ Category at Scrapbookgraphics! And, her "Rough and Tumble" Kit is 50% off until Sunday!! Hop on over there and check that out!

Since its a brand new month, that means a new "Pimp my Page" Challenge over at Miss Mints! This month's Template is by Ingrid Fasquelle, and it looks really fun to work with. The Templates are free... all that MissMint asks is that you use mostly PeppermintCreative products... and of course there is the requirement to have fun!! But, everything is always fun over at MissMint's!! While you are there, check out the amazing blog (Tons of wonderful Hybrid ideas posted on the blog!) and the Mintspirational Monday's!

While I'm talking about Challenges.... If you really love some great Challenges, you should stop by Nuts4digi! They've got about 11 Challenges running! And this month, if you participate in 3 or more challenges.. you will recieve a special kit free! Illusions by Debbie Mckenzie! Here is the thread all about that!

I don't know about you all, but I love dollar deals. One of my Favorite places to watch is the Funky Playground. Every Thursday, they have new Dollar deals... and alot of the times I am very very surprised by whats available. I am always excited to see their email every Wednesday night! The Deals last for a full week too!!

I've got ya'll a coupon code From Stacey Crossley! Its good for either of her stores too! PrettyScrappy and Scraphead! Hop on over there and find you a deal! She's got some nice stuff... if you want some ideas, just check out my Gallery at DST!

And that's it for me today! I know there are probably a hundred other things happening around Digi World this week.... If you know of something really great, a challenge thats really fun, a sale thats to die for, a blog post thats just amazing or really funny!... or just a simple fun activity you think we would all enjoy... PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE share it with us in the comments!! We all would love to know Your "Digital Point of View" Too!!

Thanks for stopping in, and again I'm sorry the post was late!

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

Featured layouts 1/1/2009

Hi Again!
Today is a late post. The fam and I got up bright and early and headed out to enjoy the first day of the new year!
I have an announcement as far as the future of our blog. I am sorry to say that next Friday will be our last post. Most of my decison to close this blog was based on the fact that I picked up one more CT and I felt I could not efficently contribute to the blog and the two CTs I serve on. So in the future you can find me at We Are Storytellers and Pixel Gypsy Designs. Both of these sites have big plans for the New Year and I would love to see you there.
For now we are still featuring Studio Flergs of Scrapbookgraphics and she has some yummy products recently released. Here is First Kiss Of Spring I love this kit it is so pretty and there is a code for 30% off on her blog. Ok today's featured layout is made with this beautiful kit. That picture is the best, can u believe from 1969. I love the subtlle flowers over the picture.
Thanks so much for reading and Happy New Year!

Featured Layouts 12-31-08

Its hard to believe that today is the very last day of 2008. Tonight, we will all be waiting anxiously for the strike of 12, and the beginning of another year. Wow. This year really did fly by, at least for me. I'm not one for making resolutions for the new year, but if there is one thing I would like to do differently.... that is to not waist time next year, to fully enjoy every day.. every moment.. for the precious gift that it is. Cause, it goes by way to fast. It feels like it was just Valentines, or maybe Easter... and now, its New Years Eve and I'm wishing I could go back and cherish this year a bit more.

Ok, enough of my sentimental crazies... LOL..... On to the real reason you all have stopped by the blog today, The featured layouts!

First up is a Layout linked to Mr Linky by Flora

I love the family togetherness she's captured in her layout. The kids working together to make the adorable paper flowers. I also really like how she slipped the frame over the picture, instead of cropping the picture down to the frame. This layout just totally brings a smile to my face! Please everyone, stop by her page and leave her some genuine love!!


Next up, I went on a search through the recent Gallery at DST hoping to find something related to the ending of the year... and I came across this layout. Bonus, she's used Flerg's Glitter papers in the layout!!!

Wow!! I mean, what else can I say.... WOW!! What a way to capture the year! This had to take a while! I am loving every single inch of it! Every picture must tell a story, and I find myself looking over the layout wondering what each story is. I just totally love multi pic layouts, but this one surpasses any I've ever seen. I love it. You did an AWESOME JOB on this layout, SuperTwinkle, and I hope as the years pass and you look back on it... that all the stories you've captured here bring a smile to your face, and laughter to your heart!
Please everyone, stop by her page and leave her some love for this absolutely Stunning layout!


Don't forget that Flergs has a new kit coming out tomorrow!!! There are some really good sneak peaks into what that kit is gonna offer, on her blog! Hop over there and check it out! Also, I took a gander through her store today... WOW!! You all don't want to miss the chance to win the gift certificate to her store, she has AWESOME products!!! So link up some layouts, and up your chances of winning!!!

Well, that's it for me today! Do me a favor, enjoy today... cherish every moment of this last day of 2008. It will never be here again. Tomorrow, it will be the start of a new year. I'm going to make the most of it. I'm taking my kiddos out.. to build a bear, lunch, maybe a movie or the park. I'm going to spend the day just loving every minute with my family. Then I'm going to hug them all tight, and kiss my hubbie at midnight! It will be a day to remember!

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

12*30 Tuesdays with Christy

Good afternoon my fellow praisers. I cannot believe that 2008 is coming to a close. I have been enjoying spending time with my family this past week. Today my kids and I went to an Amish country store and had lunch there, it was so yummy.

I am thrilled that this week (and next) we are featuring one of my most favorite designers. I have followed the fantabulous Flergs since she first started designing. When she offered a CT call, I tried out. I wasn't chosen for her permanent team, but I got a guest spot. However I had to wait 9 months for my spot -- it was so hard to wait too, lol. But that waiting proved to be wonderful as she asked me to join her team permanently when my guest time was over. Flergs has a new goodie coming out on New Year's Day and I am going to see if I can share a sneaky peaky of it.

But in the mean time, she has revamped an oldy but a goody in my eyes.
Rough and Tumble

And it's only $3 right now -- so go snag it while it's 50% off.

Well onto to our featured pages. Looking in Mr. Linky I find this awesome page by Anne. It appears others have commented on it too. Such a sweet moment to capture.

Please stop and leave her some love.

For this next page, I thought I'd find someone using Flergs' designs -- who isn't on her CT -- lol. This is what I found.

I love the vintage page and just the hint of color there.

Okay here is your sneak peak. :)

It's just a small one, but hope you can enjoy it. Don't forget to leave a link for your chance to win a $10 gift card to Flergs store!!

Happy Monday Everyone!

Today, we will spotlight Flergs of Scrapbook Graphics! Isn't that exciting! As usual you will qualify for a GC to her store just for linking up a layout to our Mr Linky. We want to make leaving praise as fun as possible so please leave some Genuine Comments for the linked layouts when you link yours up. We promise to return the favor!!

Flerg's latest release is called 6k74

Her team whipped up some hunky pages with it when it came out! Here are a couple!Megs also hooked us up with a bio about herself. Here is a great chance to get to know this inspiring designer a bit better!
Hi I am Megan or Megs, but most people know me as Flergs. I am a hairdresser by day and designer by night.I have been married for 10 years and have 2 gorgeous children, Deacon 5 & Kaylee-Jayde 2.I was a paper scrapper for 4 years, and I never liked the look of 'original' digital scrapbooking until a friend showed me how much it had evolved. I was instantly hooked and would never go back to paper scrapping again! I have been 100% digital since June 2006. I started off designing a few little blog freebies and now I am honoured to be a Studio Girl! I rarely get a chance to scrap anymore because I am too busy designing!

My Studio is here:
I also added Megan's blog to our blog roll to the right. You have to stop by and pick up her freebie shadows. I just started using them and I love them ALOT!!!
Ok, Praisers! Tune in for the next two weeks as we spotlight Studio Flergs and feature the layouts you link up!
Have a great week!
