Here are 2 layouts I created using a wonderful kit by ChrissyW Digital
This is a wonderful kit, seriously, if you don't have it get it! She was kind enough to pass out a few freebies on her facebook page to a few people she would pick out of those that had commented. I am sooo very thankful for this freebie as it really is an amazing kit!
Please know that I did use a word-art element from digiVickie for the first Layout and A tied ribbon tag on the second layout made by InspiredbyDominic Designs

You should see more from me done with this kit, I LOVE it!

I'm Back

Yes, I have been away for nearly a year but I'm back once again and do not plan on leaving any of you!
While I was gone we purchased a new home for our family:  
We had been trying to figure out a way to do this for a long time and in April we had our chance and we took it! It's been a crazy ride since then, This home was a foreclosure and needed a lot of love. Here are the photos from when we first got it.

So far we have done quite a bit of work but this summer we plan on doing a lot more and when that work is completed I will gladly share the photos from that.
We also had a lot going on in July, I got a second job and we celebrated my oldest son's 4th birthday in the new house despite the fact we didn't have anything in it really. With the second job I hardly was home and it was worst these last 2 months. So December 13th was my last day on the job for one of them, I am now only working 2 days a week and hope to scrap a lot more than i have been.
My boys needed me home more and i needed to be out of the house less so since i'll still be making the same amount I went with it.
If you are a designer and need some ct help just let me know. I hope to start designing again here in the next few months.
I hope you enjoy the layouts I am sure to start posting shortly. Also be on the lookout for freebies!!! I love to give out freebies!
