I've gone from having a baby that sleeps all the time to a baby that seems to never sleep. Cat naps, that's what I'm getting from him. It is putting a real damper on my computer time. He has gotten tired of the swing, hates the floor and he's not quite sturdy enough for the walkers and jumpers yet, he is getting one for Christmas though. So TGIF because my husband is home tomorrow. I have also been super busy getting done with my Christmas shopping, I just have 1 more present to get for my dad and I am done! Wednesday night my church had a free babysitting night by the 12 year olds. It was so nice. We took Hayden and Hensley and they had a room for toys, a room for arts and crafts and then a movie room! They had a lot of fun and Brandon and I took the baby and went to dinner at The Cheesecake Factory(yum) and then went to the mall to finish up what we needed from there. It was a fun night!

ScrapMatters has come out with a ton of new products from their new designers! So fun! I've already showed you Brittney's awesome kits, but here are some more available at ScrapMatters.

Here are just a few from Dirty Feet designs by Heather. She has some really fun alphabets, frames and other elements.

Here are a few kits from Sunshine DigiScraps. I love the color and elements of the surprise party kit. Love the envelope! And I love the snowflakes on the Merry Little Xmas, the stitching is so fun.

These kits are by Melissa Ortega, I cannot wait to do a page with her Delicate Purity kit. It has Hensley written all over it. The elements are so fun on her Christmas 2007 kit, I love the popsicle sticks.

This is a beautiful kit from Teresa P. inspired by her grandfather. This kit would make perfect heritage pages.

These kits by Ellie are awesome. I love the elements, I think the Adam kit is so precious and I love the colors of Falling for Autumn. Annabelle is sweet and soft. She also has a preview of a new Christmas kit that will available soon, you can check that out on her blog.

Also available at the store Brittney has her We Zigged and Zagged templates. They were part of her grab bag. These are some fun templates, here is what I did with a couple of them.

I used her blistery paper pack for this one, I also altered it a little to fit all the kids on the page.

This is one of my favorites. I love the stitching. The kit used is Holly Jolly Ho Ho Ho by Andilynn designs, the same kit I used for my banner and siggy.

And, last but not least, ScrapMatters is having a template challenge. The template is from Kristie, a member of our CT. It is a really fun template! You can find the download link for the template at the ScrapMatters Team Blog. Winner will receive a $5 Gift Certificate.

Here is the template...

and here is my layout...

You can find other examples on the team blog or at ScrapMatters.

Whew, that was a long blog. I started at lunch and now it is time for dinner. And my baby has still not taken a nap. TGIF!!! Hopefully this weekend I can put a new template up! Have a great weekend!!!
