So yes it's been a while again! I am trying to nail down a regular schedule for this blogging thing! ONE day I'll get it; it will click in this brain of mine and off we go! LOL!! BUT for now thanks for bearing with me and my sporadicness! (so not a word but oh well! LOL!)

Tomorrow STACEY is having a BLOG CONTEST!!! It's a good one too! Here is the scoop on that - it will be using my template #3! BUT WAIT - you are all saying - what happened to template #2!??!? WELL at the end of this blog post you will get it!! So you'll be getting 2 in two days!! HOW cool is that!!!?? Template 3 will be up tomorrow on Stacey's blog as well as here!

So here is the CONTEST info:

Sounds like fun!!! AND Stacey created that fab contest info using her new DANCING QUEEN kit! THIS kit had me singing the song in my head as I scrapped! LOVED this kit! Here is my layout using it, if you subscribe to the Scrap that Idea newsletter this was included in the most recent issue! If you don't subscribe you can do so here.

Stacey also has a freebie that you can snag from her blog called 2 by 2! Here is my layout using this fun kit:

MEL has been super busy lately! I've got 4 layouts to show you from her most recent kits! First up is her HELLO DARLING kit! I created this fun 2 pager showcasing my son cooking his own dinner! He loved the process from beginning to end!

Then there is NOTE THIS - a fun kit to highlight the musicians in your life! THis layout was created to highlight my husbands grandfather who is the most amazing trumpet player!

Next up is LOVELY. This kit was just perfect for my Hawaii vacation pics! THis is one of my favorite pics taken of Mike and I after the wedding! Love this man!

Last but not least is her HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU kit! The doodles in this kit are so much fun! This is once again my husbands grandfather who celebrated his birthday while we were on vacation!

Sara has a beautiful new kit called JUST PEACHY - it's gorgeous! I really enjoyed working with it so much that I created 2 layouts!

Here are 3 layouts created with kits from Vicki! One from her Colour me Happy kit (my love) , one from Over the Moon (get lost in a book), and one from Toy Box (little zookeeper)! I enjoyed creating with all three of these kits!!!!!

NOW for the FREEBIE!! I had 500 scrappers download my first template!!! WOW! I was just thrilled by that! It makes me happy to know that I created something of use to someone else!! AND thanks for the comments left! SO due to the awesome response here is template number 2! AND THIS is a FREEBIE within a FREEBIE! Included with this template is a grunge border I created. I've used it on a lot of my layouts!! THANKS for making my first template freebie a success!! AND if you have used my template please e-mail me at with a picture of your layout! I'll post it here!!!

Download HERE! And yes I did double check the link this time! LOL!

AND look for template number 3 tomorrow! Please leave a comment if you download! I love to hear your feedback! I love collagey type layouts and I'm sure a few of you do as well!! This template was based off the layout I created using the Scrap that Ideas MAY'S Scrap that Season COLLAB which you can still get at a great price!
