I did a couple of layouts using the new kit 'In the Frosty Air' by Christine of jusme digital. Christine has also released the kit in her other stores here:

The first one is of Corey in his new winter suit.

The second one is of Tyler playing in the snow a few years ago.

I just love these photos. Aren't they cute?

Here is a layout I made using the 'Wacky Tea Party' kit by my good friend Liv of Country Liv's Graphics. The photo is of Tyler on his first birthday.

Isn't he just so cute?

I'll be back on Thursday with more layouts.

Just a short post to let you know that the layout of Charlie that I posted on Monday, using 'Mia Bella Zingaro' by Country Liv's Graphics, got Gallery Stand Out at Scrapping Fairytales. I was absolutely thrilled when I received the notification. Here is the link to the blog post:

jusme digital is now selling at a new store, Scrap Takeout. Here is the link to her shop where she is currently having a Black Friday sale.

Watch out for some wonderful new kits being added to the jusme digital shop over the next few weeks. I have made some layouts with advance copies of some of these kits and will be posting them as soon as the kits are released in the store. Watch this space.

The layout I posted on Friday using the 'He Won't Go' bundle from jusme digital got a gallery standout at Scrapping Fairytales. Here is the link to their blog:

I was so thrilled that my layout was one of the six that was chosen for gallery standout.

I have been busy working on a new layout using the 'Mia Bella Zingaro' kit from my friend Liv of Country Liv's Graphics. The kit is on sale at the moment for $4.50 (25% off the normal sale price). Here is my layout using a wonderful photo of my daughter-in-law Charlie.

She looks so relaxed and happy.

I found an old picture of me and my husband Richard as I was having a look at some old photos. I decided it would make a good subject for a layout using 'He Won't Go' by jusme digital.

Just check out that hat and the handbag. We were so young then, 40 years ago.

My daughter-in-law Charlie gave me this wonderful photo of Tyler and Corey together on the bed. I just love it. The lovely expressions on their faces. Tyler looks so proud to be a big brother. Priceless!

jusme digital has a wonderful kit called 'He Won't Go' in her store at the Studio here:

I thought the colours in the kit would be really good to make a layout using Tyler's nursery school photos, so I made a layout for the 'Surprise Me Border Challenge' at the Studio.

I used one of the gears in the kit to make a frame and I used the kit alpha to make the title. I just love these photos. What a wonderful smiling face!

I made another layout using 'And Winter Came' from jusme digital. I used one of the splats in the kit to make a mask and I think it turned out pretty good. The subject, of course, is Tyler.

Don't you just love his little outfit. As you can see this was Tyler's first Christmas.

I have added some little widgets to my blog so you can  link to the designers I CT for. Just click on any of the little pictures at the top right of my blog and you will be taken to the designer's blog where you can find the links to the designer's stores, newsletter and Facebook fan page. I will also continue to include links to kits in my blog posts.

I am really on a roll with the 'And Winter Came' bundle by jusme digital. It is currently on sale at 70% off for the price of $6.49. What a bargain for a wonderful bundle.

I made a second layout using a photo from my friend Liv of Country Liv's Graphics.

There were so many wonderful papers to choose from but in the end I decided to use the tree one as I thought it went best with the photo. The photo frame is clipped from a paper in the kit.

I have a couple more photos of Corey to share with you. This time he is awake!

I will be back soon with another layout using 'And Winter Came'.

This month I am doing a Guest Spot on the Creative Team for jusme digital. I made a layout using Christine's 'And Winter Came' bundle which you can find in her store here at the Studio. She has a Facebook fan page here. Why not go over and 'like' her and pick up her Facebook fan freebie.

Here is a preview of the bundle and one of the main kit.

This is my layout using a photo of Tyler when he was about 10 months old. Isn't he gorgeous?

I'll be back soon with more layouts using 'And Winter Came'.

I have another wonderful layout made by my friend Liv of Country Liv Graphics. She used some papers and elements from her in progress kit 'Glorious Winter'. The layout is a match to the one of Tyler that I posted on Monday.

Thank you Liv. I really love it. It is so great to have a pair of matching layouts.

I was so delighted when I opened my mail this morning and found this wonderful layout:

It was made by my friend Liv using the photo I showed you yesterday. When Tyler saw it this morning he said 'Are you going to print it, Nanny'. So that is what I did so that he can take it home with him and put in the scrapbook album I have been making for him since he was born.

Liv is a wonderful designer, she designed the items she used to make the layout. She is also a wonderful layout artist. I have two more photos to show you of Tyler. These were also taken yesterday but they were quite dark and Liv adjusted them for me.

Tyler is playing with some farm animals that he got with his new Thomas the Tank Engine magazine. Aren't the photos adorable?

It's Digital Scrapbooking Day and all the designers are having sales and giving away freebies. My friend Liv of Country Liv's Graphics is having a sale in all of her stores. Her new store Bella Zingaro Studio had it's official opening on 1st November and some of the designers have made wonderful Grand Opening Kits. Here is the link to Liv's Mia Bella Zingaro kit.

If you go to Liv's Blog you can find a free quickpage made with her Mia Bella Zingaro kit. There are lots of other freebies on her blog (some of which were designed by me). You will also find the links to all her stores and to her Facebook Fan Page on the right hand side of the blog. Why not sign up to her newsletter while you are on her blog and receive further freebies.

Here is the free quickpage you can get on Liv's Blog:

Here is my layout made with Mia Bella Zingaro:

The journalling is the lyrics of a song sung by Perry Como called 'It's just the Gypsy in my soul'. Don't you just love the gorgeous frame and the gold stand for it, and the little tassels just add the finishing touch.

Here is a banner showing some of the wonderful kit colours. The full size banner is included in the kit

My son Richard, his wife Charlie and the two little ones, Corey and Tyler, are staying with us this weekend and my husband took some photos this morning:

Corey fell asleep in my arms and didn't even wake up when they put his outdoor suit on. Doesn't he look cute in it. Charlie's friend Karina gave it to Corey for his first birthday on Thursday.

 This is Tyler. What no smile today!
