Beautiful Goodness from Sarah Bennett

This week, Sarah put out 2 new products, both collabs and both extraordinarily beautiful!
This one, Sunday Afternoon, with Trixie Scraps

And this with WM [squared]

I'll admit it. I love ScrapMatter's points system and I regularly try to combine my commitments with different things (a CT layout that also works as a challenge layout.) I picked up Sarah Barber's Nature of Matrimony kit last week and I've been trying to figure out what I wanted to do with it. See, I see so many digi scrapping stuff that I love, and then when I pick it up, I don't know what to do with I've been hanging on. Over this weekend, I decided I wanted to do a layout about my baby's happy nature and then I was perusing SM's challenges and the only one that I could use with the layout in my head was Saturday's (4/17) Saturday Special. And I love the photo treatment that it gave my photo.

Happy Birthday Sarah!

Sarah is running a birthday celebration (because it's her birthday) and the CT is playing along too. We got together and made 12 4x6 brag book templates. You can visit Sarah's CT Blog to snag this beauty. (The picture should be linked, but just in case, here it is again...)

Sarah is also offering a 28% discount on her store at ScrapMatters.

It's the perfect opportunity to get any of those goodies that you've been holding out on.

Digiridoo Challenges up and Running

Well, April is in full swing...(although you wouldn't know it at my house, we've had snow for a few days now...) but at DRS, the challenges have started up and I don't think you'll want to miss out. This month, you can find a color challenge, a font challenge, a layer it up challenge, an inspiration challenge, and a journaling challenge (plus the other regularly monthly challenges). This month I am hosting the journaling challenge.

The challenge this month is to let your picture speak for itself. Have little to no journaling. Here's my example.
Here is the preview of your participation prize:

and I already did the inspiration challenge. The inspiration is yourself. Find an older layout that maybe you just aren't pleased with and rework it. I'm so incredibly embarrassed to post my old layout. It wasn't done well, and in the pictures, my son was wearing a light green outfit and was laying on red sheets. Let's say it wasn't exactly pretty, but I changed my photos and made this monochromatic layout instead and I love it so much more! (If you get really curious you can check out the inspiration challenge and I have to post it there...)

DRS April Mega Collab

Well the April Mega Kit is out...and we went fantasy. Here's your previews:

here's what I made with this kit:

and I couldn't resist trying for a fantasy layout. I'm pretty pleased with the result.

The kit can be found here, and don't forget it's free with any purchase through the month of April.
