Closing shop!

The time has come, my friends! I have come to the realization that I just really love scrapping more than I love designing! So, as of April 8, my shop at Bouquet of Pixels will be closed. However, if you want to grab any of my kits before they are gone, they are on sale for only $1 each!

I Heart Spring

I've posted this kit before, but I just completed a few layouts with it. LOVE it! :)Here's my oldest son a few years ago. I love scrapping older photos, I get so nostalgic!

And here's me and my hubby back in the day... Hard to believe it was almost 10 years ago!

Oldie but goodie from CBR

Here's an older kit from Creations by Rachael that I worked with this week. I adore the colors and the realistic but whimsical elements.

Here are a couple of layouts.

I honestly can't remember if I've ever scrapped a photo of my dog, unless it was with one of the boys, so Sammie was definitely due to be a subject (or victim) of a scrap attack.

New from Creations by Rachael

I've known Rachael for over a year, ever since we were both designers at a store together. Well, my focus has shifted and I've decided that I prefer to scrap my own photos rather than design. In the meantime, Creations by Rachael has become a better and better quality name!!! Look at this gorgeousness! This is brand new out this week!

Remember the sneak peek I showed you last week? Here is the unveil!

I've been reading all these complaints about DST in the past few days...

First off, let me remind you that I am an American who is living in Germany. And second, I'm a digiscrapper. An obsessive digiscrapper. So, from that framework, I interpret DST as the website Digishop Talk. So imagine my surprise when I see all the buzz on Facebook from gals I didn't know scrapped who started posting things like "DST bites" or "Thanks, DST, for making my Monday even better..." and then a bunch of GUY friends posted stuff like "I hate DST".


Now I know Digishop Talk has had some issues with its gallery in the past few months, but really? I wondered how the word had spread to the point that it had any type of impact on the non-scrappers and their husbands.

Well, now that it is TUESDAY, a lighbulb suddenly went off as I was reading my sister's blog. I finally realized that the DST that all these people were referring to is Daylight Savings Time.

When you are done laughing (or shaking your head) at my idiocy, just be aware that I am usually pretty good at understanding what people say - in context. However, since DST (the time change) does not take place in Europe until the last weekend of March, that usual context was lost on me.

Just thought I'd share. :)

Something exciting is going on in scrapland! :) I've got a few new projects brewing that I can't wait to unveil. One of them, I will tell you in just a second, but the other I will fill you in on later this month.

Here's a hint for the first one...
OK, OK, I'll just tell you. :) I'm a guest creative team member for Creations by Rachael for this month! Very cool and I'm so excited about it. She is a talented designer. There is a new kit coming out on Friday, so be sure to check it out! Will post more as the day nears.

Michelle Underwood also released a kit at 2Peas! Isn't it cute??? I think most of us are just begging for spring to come already...
