October Road

Tracy at Growing Pains Scrapped has a new kit. It's called October Road, and she did this as a collaboration with two other designers, Flower Scraps and The Scrappy Kat. She has links to both of their kits in her blog. I did quite a few layouts with it, because I just love the kit. The colors are great and it was so easy to find pictures that would go with it. I hope you enjoy it too. Here is the preview of her kit:

Tracy is giving the kit away for free on her blog this week only, click on the preview to head on over that way to get your kit.

Here are some layouts I did with the kit. I also did a few brag book pages (my first ever brag book pages!) Hope you like them.

Tracy from Growing Pains Scrapped has just released a new kit. It is beautiful. It's called Eternal, and I love it. I've already done two layouts using it, and I'm working on another one now. I love the colors and it's so versatile. I'm planning on using it for some pages of my parent's 50th wedding anniversary and also for my faithbooking. In fact, one of the layouts I did so far is for my faithbook. Here is the preview of the kit and the paper:

Chuck E Cheese

I've been so bad. I've been doing all of these layouts, but haven't taken the time to share. So I'm sharing what I have done lately.

We went with Kelly's family to Chuck E. Cheese for Brodie's birthday. It was the girls first time going and they had a ball. Here are two layouts I did from that adventure.

Freedom isn't Free

Today we remember why we fight for freedom. Why it is important for our men and women to serve. Why we should support them with our love, our prayers, and our encouragement. We should remember where we would be with out them.

If you or a loved one has fought for our country at any time, I would like to say thank you! You don't know how much your service to our country and to our people mean to me. I can't express enough my gratitude.

Don't get discouraged, or think that it's in vain! There are people here who love you and support you and pray for you! Wear the uniform proudly!
