Taking a Trip to the East Coast?

Simple Girl Scraps has the cutest kit with journal cards and woody papers that is perfect for any East Coast trips, but I loved it for my own local crab-loving 6 year old.  I just loved all the navy blue, red and whites.  Such fun nautical elements, too!  Here is one page that I just made with it.

And also this one

You can pick up the pieces from Gingerscraps

Fall is Here!

Boy, have the months flown by.  I have been more busy than I ever have before.  Since I last posted here, we have sold our old house and bought a new (much bigger) one.  We went from a postage stamp yard to 2 acres to take care of.

I even changed my siggy for it

This even looks like my life!  We still have boxes all over and are trying to find room for things!  But we love the new house so much.

So, I scrapbooked some of the changes over the past few months.  To start, I will a little trepidicious.

Then, the excitement started to build and the waiting was so hard

I can see more layout about getting our keys

 But, one of the first big changes was all the fresh fruit and veggies
We worried about our kitty
But one of my favorite parts is when the sun comes up

So much change, but so wonderful!  I think that now that things have settled down, I can keep up better her! LOL

Featured Designer - Inspired Designs

Since my life now revolves so much around scrapbooking, I thought it would be fun to do a monthly Featured Designer.  Every month, I will spot light a designer for you to check out.
This month, I am showing off Crystal of Inspired Designs.  The first time I came across her designs was when her kit Forever Yours came out.  With a monkey-lover in my house, I knew that I needed to buy it right away.  We had even just done a Sock Monkey Birthday Party.  I loved the kit so much that later, it was a $2 Tuesday special and I bought it again *blush!
I did a page of all the sock monkeys from the birthday and then couldn't decide and did another.  Which do you prefer?

For the most part, everything the same, but I have such a hard time with white space, I felt like I needed to fill it, so I added the big close-up.

The layouts used her kit and Little Rad Trio's template

Then, more recently, I scrapbooked an new layout with her kit - One of Kind.  Perfect for those of us with little boys to scrap about

Such a cute kit with lots of stars, signs and cute papers.

Another one that I did awhile back included her fun Right Here Right Now Today Pocket cards, that helped me put together a layout of my then recent tooth issue

So, go check out her shop!
