Back2School – Not So Bright!

You know, if you have school-age kids, you want them to be “bright”. And when you think of most school-themed digiscrap kits, they tend to be “bright”. Well, with my love of all things shabby and grungy I just had to put my own spin on the wonderful new Back2School digiscrap kit I’m releasing today at PGD – and it is not exactly “bright”! :D

This kit includes 12 shabby-grunge papers, lots of fun “real photo” elements, and a grungy schooltime alpha!

Don’t forget, if you grab these packs *today* you will save 30% off as part of our Fantabulous Friday sale!


PLUS: Today I am also offering you the coordinating deluxe tag *freebie* for Back2School – and it has a bonus! I decided the clipboard in my full Back2School kit needed a clamp so you all could clip things to the clipboard more realistically… so I’ve included that with the deluxe tag download!

Wishing you a wonderful Friday … toodles!

Isn’t It Punny? :P

Today I’d thought I’d serve up a little something different… something silly and just for fun. Do you like puns? I do. Somehow, puns just tickle my funny bone like crazy! Even stupid ones still make me laugh. So when I came across a list of them in one of the blogs I follow this week, I got a real good laugh out of it. Then I shared those with the fun gals at PGD, and our wonderful Head Gypsy Girl, Lor, shared a few more that had me rolling on the floor. So today I’m passing along several of these fun puns to my blog readers. And if you have any good puns, feel free to send them to me – I’d love to hear them! (Besides, I may post another Pun For Fun blog next month!) :D

1. Shotgun wedding: A case of wife or death.
2. Acupuncture is a jab well done.
3. A backwards poet writes inverse.
4. A chicken crossing the road is poultry in motion.
5. He often broke into song because he couldn’t find the key.
6. The butcher backed up into the meat grinder and got a little behind in his work.
7. One of the first things you’ll notice at the Beijing airport is a whole lot of Chinese checkers.
8. I thought I saw an eye doctor on an Alaskan island but it turned out to be an optical Aleutian.
9. To some – marriage is a word … to others – a sentence.
10. The man put his name on the neck of his shirt so he would have collar ID.
11. Did you hear about the guy whose whole left side was cut off? He's all right now.
12. There was a sign on the lawn at a drug rehab center that said 'Keep off the Grass'.
13. To write with a broken pencil is pointless.
14. No matter how much you push the envelope, it'll still be stationery.
15. She was only a whisky maker but he loved her still.
16. I wanted to exercise last night but it just didn't work out.


Hope today finds you with plenty of laughter in your life! :D

A Couple Layouts Just For Fun!

Thought I’d just share a couple layouts with you that I made recently. These two pages are *completely* different styles, and yet all papers and elements for both came from one kit! No, it’s not one of my kits. This is actually a gorgeous storybook kit I just fell in love with over at - “Ticket To Dragon’s End.” I mean WOW! Beautiful stuff!

Every time my husband, Jim, sees this layout, he laughs out loud at the sight of me in the little airplane. :D I had so much fun with this completely fantasy-style page.

Dream Travel


This page is back to a more “reality” page. I so love how it turned out!

Green With Envy! – New Release

With my newest kit release today, I am introducing a whole new collection based on COLORS. My new…

This collection was inspired by my lifelong love of color! One of my favorite childhood books was Richard Scarry’s Things To Know, and I always felt the most fantastic section in that book was “COLORS” by Kathleen N. Daly. I still own that book, and I still love to look over the pages where each color is represented on a page of its own, with little bunnies holding their paintbrush and bucket of paint in the featured color. As a childhood artist, I thought it was so wonderful, so magical. With my Paintbox Collection, I am creating my own version of “COLORS” – creating individual kits that focus entirely on a single color. Each kit will be filled with papers and elements in the featured color, and will also have items that represent the symbolic meanings of the color. For instance, my first kit in the series is “Green With Envy.” It is filled with green leaves, green frog, green grass, green turtle, and much more in the color green. It also contains items related to the symbolic meaning of green, like a recycling symbol  and recycling wordart.

This fun set will be 30% off for today only as part of PGD’s Fantabulous Friday! Enjoy!

Hikers & Geocachers: Scrap With This!

With all the photos I have from wonderful hikes with my husband that also served as geocaching hunts, I decided it was time to have a kit for scrapping those photos! No doubt there are plenty of other hikers, geocachers, scouting families, and outdoor enthusiasts who’d like to scrap their outdoor adventures as well, so my newest release at PGD is HIKE AND SEEK. This fun kit includes everything a hiker and/or geocacher could need for scrapping: binoculars, cedar branch, compass, GPS unit, ammo can & microcache, notepad, pencil, hidden cache, grass, bark frame, small bird, and much more!

Well I truly hope you are enjoying the celebration of the birthday of our wonderful country today! (That is, if you are in the USA! :D ) I’m not sure we’ll make it to the parade this year due to hubby’s work & sleep schedule, but we will probably do a bit of bbq this afternoon and maybe head out to Hope for some beautiful fireworks. And speaking of fireworks, you get a bit of those on this wonderful deluxe tag I am giving away! It coordinates with my new Americana Salute kit available in my store at PGD.
