Our train is headed on a fantastic holiday tour and you won’t want to miss any of the ten stops. We start out at Halloween, head on over to Thanksgiving and end our journey at Christmas.

The train ride will be open until midnight Sunday (US Central Time Zone) and the winner will be announced on the Scrap n’ Art Blog on Monday, October 4th.

Welcome to Thanksgiving!
If you know me then you know that I'm a full blown digi girl and always will be! So what exactly can you do with cards as a digital designer? Well that's easy! First, digitally design your card front. You could make it whatever size you'd like but I went with the standard 4x6:

Next print your design out on photo paper, cut (if applicable) and adhere to cardstock:

Voila! You've got a real, 3 dimensional, hold it in your hand card! All you need to do is add your own special little message inside and it's ready to pass on to someone you love:

Now, if I were really motivated (plus had the time and proper resources) I could have totally hybrided this up a little more by decorating the front with some extra ribbons, glitter, embellishments... you get the idea. But if a sweet and simple (still hand made) sentiment is all your looking for, then you're good to go. We digi girls will not be left behind! ;)

Thank you so much for stopping by! My word for you is... Cardmaking. Next stop is Michelle’s blog ( Have a great journey!

From the Atlantic... to the Pacific!

Yes, life has been pretty hectic around here the past few months but still this summer, my family was fortunate enough to also be able to kick back and relax (somewhat!) on two wonderful vacations... and as the title tells - we traveled all the way from the Atlantic to the Pacific!

First in July, we spent a few days hanging out at Rehoboth Beach in Delaware and then just a couple short weeks later in August, we visited the beach at Santa Barbara, California! Below are two pages showcasing this awesome opportunity Isabella and Gavin were able to share together this summer!

The Birthday Boy!

I made this page a little while ago, on June 9th to be exact. It's one of Gavin's third birthday pictures and I was waiting to post it until I finished scrapping some more of his birthday pics. But since it's now become obvious to me that that won't be done for quite some while I thought I'd go ahead and share this one anyway! I think this was Gavin's best photo shoot yet! He was all smiles, hope that's a good sign for what being three will bring! Can't believe another year has gone by already!

Some Sad News

I'm sorry to inform you all that I have offically resigned my position with Divine Digital. Since the start of my new full time job in April, I just have not been able to work out a way to have enough time for designing AND a life! I am very sad about this, I really did love seeing others enjoy my work but the good news is that I am keeping my position with Scrap N' Art Magazine. So, if you are a SNA subscriber, you will still be able to snag some great freebies from me. Also keep an eye on the SNA blog, you're likely to find more freebies from me there that are available to everyone. Just last week I posted this freebie:

These stickers coordinate with the current 2010 May/June SNA Collab Kit, Almost Summer. Click HERE to visit the SNA blog post where you can find the link for these fun summertime stickers. Enjoy and thanks for your support! :)

Picture Perfect

Just wanted to assure you all that I am still alive and scrappin' over here... just not as much as I'd like to be since the new job has started. I snapped this pic of the kiddos today and loved it, definitely convinced me to just take a break, sit down and make a page... now, off to bed - it's past my bedtime!

Here's another page for my mom's book, I'm trying to get as much done before the 12th which is when my new job will start. I must admit, I'm a little nervous about what will happen to my scrapbooking when that happens! But only time will tell, anyways - back to this page! These are pics of my mom and my stepfather taken in 2003, it was my grandparent's 55th anniversary and a photographer had come out and take some family photos. I'll be back with more tomorrow I'm sure!

For My Mommy!

My mom's 60th birthday is coming up in May and I've been put in charge of making a photo book  - no big surprise there! So today I got started with this page, the upper photo shows my mom with her older brother (she's on the right) and the lower one shows her with the same older brother and her younger sister (my mom is the one on the left). Looking forward to scrapping some more older photos and hope you'll enjoy seeing them! :)

Last March Madness Week!

Now onto a happier note for today, we've made it to the last week of March and I'm going to extend this special into April so that it is good for one whole week (3/29 - 4/3)! Buy my newest kit April Showers and get my Spring Glitter Papers FREE! Visit HERE.

Only in Our Dreams...

I apologize in advance for the seriousness of this post, I was actually debating whether I even wanted to share this page or not. Today is the anniversary of my older brother's death, it's been 8 years - hard to believe. So needless to say, he's been on mind more than usual the past week or so... Easter in general is always a reminder because his death occured over this holiday in 2002. One of the saddest things for me to think about is how my children will never know who their Uncle Jon was and that is what inspired this page:

These are old photos that I took and added my children to. The top one was originally a photo of me when I was younger sitting on my brother's lap, now you see Isabella there. The lower one was a photo of my brother holding his son, now it is Gavin. These images are something that can never be, they are memories which can only be made in their dreams - in my dreams. I actually wanted to do something more with this page but simply creating those images took enough out of me and I just had to stop. But perhaps it is better this way, an unfinished page - an unfinished life... I miss you Jon.
