Template 23 and Happy Family

Notice anything different around here? Yep, I changed my blog LO! And I used stuff I made myself! Well, I used CU overlays, Atomic Cupcake's tearing, Kimi's glitter styles, and Obsidian Dawn's swirl brushes...but I put it all together;) And I photographed, extracted, and recolored the ribbon. LOL, it's the drawstring of my favorite PJ bottoms!! I have a real blog header now, too!

Template 23 is here! But first, a new LO! This week's weekly challenge on BAM has us browsing galleries around the digiscrap world for scraplifting. The challenge is to scraplift a LO we really like. This was the first time I've done a scraplift. It was really fun! I saw this gorgeous LO and had to lift it:

And this is my version:

Scraplifted from Leila at ScrapMatters:
Papers - me, BCC2 (not released yet)
Glitter styles - Kimi's Kreations, BCC2 (not released yet)
Obsidian Dawn - swirl brushes
Atomic Cupcake - colored chrome

Be sure to head over to ScrapMatters and leave Leila some love for her gorgeous LO!

And now for the template. Template 23 is a 2 page LO in PSD format. Please feel free to send me your pages with my templates or kits! I'd LOVE to see them, and to post them here with your permission:) Here's the preview for template 23:

You can download it here.

LOL, I WAS going to go to bed earlier tonight...ahahaha,'s nearly 3 AM. I really need to force myself to go to bed earlier. doesn't really work, because I can't sleep. I just lay there TRYING to sleep. If I'm going to be awake at this hour, I might as well be productive, right? ;) Anyway, I'm going to TRY to get some sleep now. Night all!


  1. thank you! What an interesting template!

  2. Love the new blog layout with the real header! It is such a relief to be able to still read your blog when I scroll down!! LOL, did you notice our headers are almost identical? ;) Polka dot paper, simple tear, and glittery text.

    *random* Heyyy, I didn't know you were friends with the Congers too! Amy is a friend of mine from .... oh, gosh, elementary-school-age?

  3. I just found your blog and I love your template. Especially the double. I'm working on an album for the Space Shuttle Discovery as my friend's brother was the commander. I do double pages so multi photos will be great.
    Thanks for your time and talent.

  6. That's so funny.. I would have never guessed that ribbon was from your PJs :P And a scraplift is not at all what I thought it was. Very cute! I really like that idea.
