DIGITAL FREEBIE! Chipboard Alpha

Okay so I haven't designed digital kits in a while but I'm really getting into digital again. It really is relaxing and I LOVE the results!!! Anyway I designed this Chipboard Alpha like 2 years ago and recently found it again so to speak!!
SO thought I'd share with anyone interested in it!!

You can download it HERE!

Here are a few digi layouts I've done recently:

THIS One was for a blog challenge at and I WON!!! I was super thrilled about that!!

Another one using stuff from I love these pics of Tanner and his bear!

And here is one more with Tanner! These are photos taken of him on picture day! Isn't he just adorable?

Did this one the other day after visiting They were featuring Miss Shabby Jenn and I picked up her ROCK STAR kit! It is SUPER!! The boys were playing Guitar Hero and it was perfect for this photo of Derrik on the drums!

And these 3 were created using kits from Sweet Blossom Designs. Sara has some super cute kits!! I love her Boys World and Boys Club!! They are freebies on her blog! I also used her Happiness kit for the layout of Jade. She is having a CT call and I tried out! Fingers crossed!!!!


I am now teaching at SCRAPTIQUE!!!!!!! That is a scrapbook store here in Wasilla, Alaska. Lanita is SUPER nice and the gals there all seem really friendly!

We'll see how my first class goes!! January 30th is my first class!!! Created this book using the Cricut and lots of great Bo Bunny goodness!!!

Here are a few pics of my class:

I am super excited with how it turned out!!!! So my goal is to actually write 3-4 times a week and to have a following! (HA!!) We'll see how that goes! LOL!! But as I am doing more classes and stuff I'll have more to write about scrappy wise!

January 7th

Look at that Stacie!! I'm blogging!!! (Stacie is my sweet sister who says I don't blog often enough!)

So I am participating in the 365 Project! I really am excited by it! I've been taking my photos and journaling so when my kit arrives I'm all set! I think it will be really neat to have an album full of our everyday life photos! Some of these pictures would not normally be scrapbooked! We have a support group going at and this week we're focusing on Daily Routines! I really like this theme. Kinda helps to document what we do daily/weekly etc....

So I got this picture of Derrik yesterday doing his homework. MAN does he have a messy room! I think it's funny that he has a desk but it's so full of stuff that he has to use his lap! I think it's time to dejunk sweetie!!

Here is a recent layout I completed. LOVE this one! This was such a fun trip!

Haven't really gotten that many photos outside recently. It's way too cold for that!! Today is negative sixteen and it's been like this for weeks!! SUPER COLD!!!! I truly hope it warms up soon. The kids really want to go sledding but I think we need a new fresh coat of snow before that happens. The snow we have now is all packed hard and windblown. Brrrrrrrr.
