Freebie Quick Page and Blog Train

SDD is having a blog hop!

While we were away the Scrappity-Doo-Dah designers and team members were cooking up something special for you!

The whole team at SDD appreciates all our customers, and our whole team want to thank you for your continued patience - both in the time that we were down and our migration over to a new, more (ahem) reliable host. We hope that this blog hop will make up for it!

More than 15 of the designers and some of the CT, Love Birds, and Moderators of SDD have come together to bring you this huge kit - While We Were Away. We know you missed us while we were away and we missed you too!

If you take all of the stops of the blog hop you will end up with a huge, beautiful kit that you will be able to scrap almost anything with. You'll also receive a ton of quick pages, courtesy of our Creative Team, Love Birds, and Moderators! And I mean a ton! They're all so fabulous.

You can start all the fun at Tam's blog -

And make sure to check out all the designer's sales in the store as well!

I've created a Quick Page for the event and here's the DOWNLOAD for it.

I've also been working on two new kits. One is from Verena Designs called SOPHIE'S DAY. It's super cool with festive colours and really cool elements. It's in honour of her little girl's 4th birthday. You can pick it up at GDS, Digital Scrapbook Art and Scrapbook-Bytes.

Here's a page I made from it.

Over at Scrappity-Doo-Dah, Twin Mom Scraps has a colourful kit called LOVELY DAY.

And here's a page I made from it:

Enjoy your weekend everyone. It's a long weekend here in Canada and the highways are jammed already!

I thought I would post a little Freebie for you. It was a prize for getting the first line at the GDS iNSD Bingo game we played last week. It's a 3-D Alpha and you can download it here.

There's a great new kit at Go Digital Scrapbooking called MIA MIA by HK Designs. I created this layout with it:

I also combined it with the kit by Marshmella Designs called CHEERY (preview posted below) to create a page for the May Scraplift Challenge at GDS.

With all the server issues going on this week with a lot of sites, I'm happy to say that Scrappity-Doo-Dah is up and running now and I'm awaiting my first assignment! Can't wait. Now I must go help my kids pack. They both bought condos at the same time, and wouldn't you know it, they're both moving this weekend. Won't get much scrapping done this weekend! I suppose it's just as well, I'm still a little depressed that our Vancouver Canucks got bounced from the playoffs. Not a good series at all. Work will help! Have a great weekend everyone. The sun is shining and bright here - the garden's beginning to look pretty darn good, but there's still work to be done!

Internet Issues

It's too bad there's so many people out there with nothing to do and figure it's their mission to hack sites. Who raises these kind of people? A lot of sites are down right now and have been since at least yesterday. I know I've tried accessing a few sites Scrappity-Doo-Dah, DigiscrapAddicts, a few blog widget sites and they call come up with "The page you're looking for wasn't found." What a drag! It must drive these site owners crazy! Anyway, hopefully the host server they're using is able to fix everything soon and these sites don't lose too much business.

I just recently entered a contest at Scrappity-Doo-Dah and was chosen as one of their site CTs. But of course, because theirs is one of the sites being affected by this latest "hacker" issue, I can't get going with them and communication is pretty much at a standstill. Anyway, I'm SO excited to be part of another team. I've had fun at GDS and the people there I've gotten to know are so family-friendly!

It was a three-week contest and for two of the three mini kits, we had to create two pages. That can stretch you a bit when you're limited to papers and elements in a mini kit. You couldn't add any outside elements so it tested your creativity. Here are some of the pages I created from the mini kits they provided for the contest:

I also just recently volunteered to do some designing for a woman who is putting together a charity kit for some children that she and a few of her acquaintances are adopting from Haiti. It sounds like it has been a long process for them, but hopefully things will happen soon and these children will be welcomed to some loving families. There will be two kits - one issuing at the end of May and the second kit at the end of June. When I know the store(s) the kit will be sold at, I will post it here.

Here are the latest kits from GDS:
If you spend $10 on a single order you get this Collaboration Kit - A Mother's Worth FREE!

Here's a page I made from it:

Marshmella Designs at GDS has a new kit called CHEERY here's the kit and a page I made from it:

Verena Karolyi Designs has a great new kit out called PEACH FACED LOVEBIRD and this is a page I created from it:

I'm also a CT member for Julie Marie Designs. She sells exclusively at Gotta Pixel
Here's a page I made from her kit called RED, BLUE and DENIM. 

I saw this cute kit at Scrap Orchard and I just had to have it. Got it when it was "Fresh Fruit" still, so got it at a good discount. It's a collab by Ziggle and AnnaBV called EINSTEIN. Here's a page I created from it:

Well off to do some gardening before the BIG hockey game tonight. Canucks have to beat the Blackhawks in order to extend the series to a seventh game. Come on boys! We've got a few injuries on our defence, so our young guys have to step it up tonight! Whoohoo! Go LOU!
