**new** Scenes d'Hiver - collab with Faith True!


I think this is the best Friday EVER. Not only because I have a new kit out myself, but the other Orchard girls are having a lot of AMAZING new releases too - go check 'em out!


So the mystery designer that I worked with is none other than the amazing & talented FAITH TRUE!! We made a kit called Scenes d'Hiver, full of sparkle and beauties, and is on sale for 20% off the whole week :)






Check out the coordinating Quickpage Album too, also on sale for 20% off. There are 12 quickpages in it - and if that's not enough to help you get scrapping, there's a special something coming next week so stay tuned :)




I also made a matching Add-on! Check it out, and like the other two, this add-on is also on sale:




Both of our CT have been working hard with the kit, and boy, aren't they all stunning?


























(These layouts are made by my CT, Faith's CT, Scrap Orchard CT and ShabbyPickleDesigns' CT - that's a whole lot a talented ladies! Thanks so much, guys!)



I scrapped with the kit too! Here's my layout with it (photo of my brother's wedding - love that precious photo):




I love the composition so much, so I turned it into a template. And hey, why not share the love with you?


You can grab the template HERE.

RAK for beccah59

The RAK challenge is hosted fortnightly every month by yours truly :)

You can find the challenge here.


This time I claimed beccah59's photo of her son showing her granddaughter how to get the M&M's from the candy container.

If Only In My Dreams - charity kit



{ If Only In My Dreams } charity kit


Have you seen this kit? It's a really stunning kit packed with the most beautiful papers & embellishments. AND - it's on sale till the end of the month - for 50% off!


The best thing about this kit is not the price or the papers or the elements...but the purpose of the 3 designers involved in creating it.


'If Only In My Dreams' is a charity kit by Kami, Shauna & Bren Boone. These talented ladies teamed up to raise some money to support the U.S. troops' care packages. You can read more about it in the product description page here.


Here are a few stunning layouts with this kit made by Bec:


I can't wait to grab this kit. Seriously I'm lovin' everything in it! 

Watching You Grow




I have so many photos of Ika - since she was a baby and till she grows up today. 3 days ago, when she came to our house & stayed (for the wedding reception), I kept feeling sentimental about this whole growing up thing.

During the reception, my cousin's little girl, Nadia (2 years old) and another cousin's little boy, Aman (3 years old) were there too.  They're the best of friends EVER. Aman wouldn't eat until Nadia ate at his table too. He was so excited when he saw Nadia - he was grinning the whole night & feeding him was a breeze for his mum.

I'm still sentimental about the kids...honestly, I can barely wait to see them grow up, go to school.. I'm eager to see them in the next chapter of their life. I hope we'll still be as close as we are today. I love them so much, they're very dear to me. Everytime I hold them, I feel a magical feeling inside me. I don't know what it is but I think they're special - TRULY SPECIAL.
