Before I Leave...

I've been meaning to post this for the last 4 days. Definately before Father's Day. I'm anticipating a very long drive with 3 children under the age of 6. Therefore, I cannot be excited yet, just nervous. I am bringing my 17 year old cousin with me to help out, so that should make it a lot better. We are going to visit Grandma and Grandpa in Utah. It should be a lot of fun once I can get there. It is getting so hot here, I'm excited to get into the mountains.

So, I just wanted to share a few things. 1st of all, last weeks Speed Scrap was a huge success! There were a ton of people participating. Our next one is tommorow night 8pm MST. I will hopefully be in Park City by then. Here was my result from last week.

I used SHARIng Creations 'My Independence' kit. I went perfect with these pics that I have been waiting to scrapbook!!!

Then the Saturday Challenge was a '10 things' challenge, so with it being Father's Day I decided to do a page on my husband! I hardly ever scrapbook anything about him! I ended up framing a copy and giving it to him for Father's Day...

I used ScrappyBlueStones 'Love Letters ' kit. I love this kit! And then I decided to do some Word Art for Father's Day and came up with this layout! This is absolutely one of my favorite pictures!

Hard to believe the same little girl is just in the other room, refusing to sleep and causing trouble! Who said girls were easier? This is Brittney's newest kit called 'Just Married' You will have to check out the actual kit. Obviously it can be used as more than a wedding kit. It is packed full of fun and elegant!

And then is today's template challenge. The template is by Brittney and it is a Text Path challenge. The kit is from Digi-Keepsakes and is called 'Hopeful Wishes'

I didn't have time to put together a preview but we have 2 new designers and a bunch of new kits in the store! 'Ever After' is amazing. Also HappyScrapGirl has a Text Path kit that I cannot wait to use. So check out the store.

OK, so now for your freebies, yes I made 2!!!

First is a template that I made from my 'All American' layout...

Download here

and then the Title and Word Art from my layout 'Daddy's Hands'

It comes in both black and white

Download here

All right! Wish me luck! I don't know how much Internet access I will have, or time. I will come back with a ton of new pictures.

I am excited to have lunch with Brittney and the Utah ScrapMatters girls.

Enjoy your freebies!!!

You are so crafty. I wish I could do more stuff like this. I just really lack that creative touch. It all looks great. Good luck on the road trip.
