Things I am thankful for right now PLUS free digital Kit

Well it’s been a long time since I’ve blogged and to be honest I have enjoyed the "break" (it was very needed and I am so glad I took it).

This weekend I find myself taking care of a sick little one while being sick myself. For the mothers out there you know this is exactly how it always goes the moment you go “down” so does the house and everyone else in it . . . mothers never get a day off :)

Today marks the 10th anniversary of 9/11 (photo taken a few years back). I like so many Americans will never forget this day. For the rest of my life (I am sure) I will never forget where I was or what I was doing. But more importantly I will never forget the great amount of pride I felt to be an American. I am ever so grateful to the service men and women that continue to protect this great country that I love. To all the Heroes that emerged that day – thank you.

This day also reminds me to be thankful – it reminds me to not rush through life but rather enjoy every moment and be thankful.

So as I found myself sitting around a lot this weekend watching endless cartoons, playing games, administering medication (you get the point); I decided to just enjoy the quiet moments.

During a quite moment, I plopped down with my laptop to create something (to be honest I was determined to create ANYTHING - because it's been months). Well this “something” turned into a mini digital kit filled with something I love – KRAFT paper :0

So here's a freebie for all of you ;) I hope you enjoy!

Today I get to share my last assignment as a member of the GCD design team. It’s crazy to think that it’s already been a year – but time flies when you are having fun and being a design team member working with such talent this year has been truly fun! For our last assignment Heidi challenged us to make something to represent spring. Lately I have been having fun creating hair accessories for my daughter. Using some tulle, a large flower that I picked up from my local craft store and a felt embellishment from the Homespun Chic collection – this little flower came together quickly! Here’s Ashlee (my daughter) modeling her newest hair clip:

So what’s even more fun than having a new hair accessory for you? Well giving one as a gift of course! Using an old tin that use to hold flowers and one of the newest releases from GCD (funhouse collection) – I quickly altered the outside of this tin and placed the flower inside. My daughter is VERY excited to give this to her little friend that has admired many of Ashlee’s bows – I hope this puts a smile on her face!

Thanks for letting me share with you today – I wish GCD Studios and the new design team members a super fantastic year filled with lots of success and memories to last a lifetime.

Getting organized!

I hope everyone is off to a great new year! It's hard to believe that we are already 11 days into 2011! I wanted to pop in and say (a bit late I know) but Happy New Year Everyone!

I am doing a complete overhaul of my scrapbooking room! Cleaning things out and getting organized so I can be productive this year. As I am cleaning I am putting aside some fun things that I plan on giving away sometime in the next few weeks - so stay tuned for some fun giveaways!

Speaking of "fun scrapbooking goodness" with CHA right around the corner what are you looking forward to seeing? I will be creating a few things with the new releases from GCD Studios and I can't wait to share them soon!

Have a great day everyone!
