Touched By a Butterfly Digi Layout

My first Digi-Scrapping Page!
I'm so excited to announce that my lovely friend Celeste has invited me 
to be a part of her Touched By a Butterfly Creative Team!

This is the first layout I have ever made using My Memories Suite Software.

I used Celeste's "Coffee With Friends" Kit, which you can find here: 

You can find "Coffee With Friends" HERE:

I have to say, digi-scrapping can be addictive!! 
I really did have lots of fun putting together this layout!
Clicking on elements and papers and moving them around and editing...
 it took me a little while to figure out what to do, but it's actually pretty easy 
and I'm pretty proud of my first attempt! (-:

There were so many different papers and goodies to play with 
in the "Coffee With Friends" Kit, so I tried to keep it simple for my first attempt 
and it worked out pretty well! 

And, congratulations to Celeste!
at the My Memories Blog!

Way to go, Lady!!

Shopping Spree, Bradford Style!

When you live in a small town like Bradford, PA,
crafty supplies can be hard to find!

We have a VERY small scrapbooking store and a Walmart! Woo-Hoo!

So, imagine my delight when I got the notification that I WON the Mother's Day Mega Giveaway from Ginger Snap Scraps!

Here is the photo she posted on their blog!

Look at all the awesome goodies in this photo...

Now... let me show you MY pictures:

Papers.... yummy papers!
TWO Spellbinders Nestabilities, TWO Copic Markers, TWO Zig Glue pens,
Ribbons, Buttons, Twine, Brads, Imagicut Ribbon Cutter , Glitter Tape...
FIVE Snag 'em Stamps, Tim Holtz Ink, Stickles and Re-inker,
Cricut Cutting Blades (which fit my Eclips), Pink By Design Stamps,
and Inky Impressions Firefly Frenzy

And, here's the BEST part... Ginger Snap Scraps is based out of town
only an hour from my house!

Can you say: "I've found my new shopping Mecca!!"?

Cori was absolutely FANTASTIC about coordinating my prize... there were a few things in the original package I didn't think I would use (like a Cricut Cartridge...)... she suggested that I browse through her shop and find replacements!! It was like Christmas in May!!!

One of the prizes in the Giveaway was a $20 Gift Certificate to her shop... it took me about 15 seconds to spend that!! And believe me, there is PLENTY on my wish list for next shopping frenzy!!!

There are always sales going on and you can stay up-to-date by following her on Facebook:


With the arrival of all my goodies, I am actually feeling INSPIRED to create, for the first time in MONTHS!!... update coming soon...
