Happy Black Friday y'all! I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving! I got to spend lots of time playing with my new camera, so that was fun! I am still STUFFED believe it or not! Brent and I went to his mom's as well as my parents', so we had LOTS of food!!!

Of course all the digi-sites are having fun for Black Friday, and several of my CT designers have new releases! So here they are!!!

First up is Be Thankful, by Captivated Visions. This kit is not your average Thanksgiving kit. It has a turkey and a pie, but that is where the similarity ends! ;) With a soft color pallette and everyday elements, it will be perfect for scrapping any number of photos!

Here is a LO I made with it:

And a hybrid card I made, for my dear digi-friend Vickilyn, which also features Sketch It Out Cards:Square and Scalloped, and Cover It Up Square, both from Krisi's Kreations:

Next up is Autumnal, by geniaBeana Scraps. This is full of GORGEOUS Fall colors, reminiscent of turkey and dressing, green beans, and cranberry sauce!

Here is a LO I made with it, which also features Adi's Templates Doubles from LePingouin Designs:

And a hybrid box to contain cards, which also features Cranberry Jelly Alpha from geniaBeana Scraps and Box It Up-Rectangle, from Krisi's Kreations:

I haven't made the cards yet, but my plan is to make cards for this box and give it to my grandma for Christmas, since she loves to send cards in the mail.

Trixie Scraps is back this Friday with an OUTSTANDING Black Friday grab bag, just STUFFED with goodies! Trust me, this GB is to die for! I bought all the SM grab bags on DSD weekend and Tracy's was one of the very best! You will get SO MUCH for your money, so don't miss out!

Here is a LO I made with the kit from the GB:

And last but certainly not least, two AWESOME hybrid templates from Krisi's Kreations! Krisi is my newest team and I must say, I never thought I would do hybrid, but it turns out that I LOVE it!!!

First we have a set of Gift Card Wrappers. These are fabulous for anytime of year, with the current popularity of gift cards! They are very versitile and easy to use! I made mine in a snap!

Here is my GC wrapper project:

Second from Krisi this week is a Matchbox Candy Box template set, designed to hold 2, 6, or 12 candy nuggets. It also comes with a candy wrapper template!

Here is my project, using the medium size:

Both of these projects also feature Holly Jolly, a collab kit between geniaBeana Scraps and Dylabel Designs. Also new this week!

Now to wrap up this post, here is another hybrid project and LO!

This project features the Mini Clamshell Box template from Geeky Diva Designs, as well as Happiest Season Of All by Britt-ish Designs:

And here is a speed scrap LO I did on Tuesday:

I hope you all enjoy the fun today and get lots of goodies! Thanks for spending part of your day here with me!!! Happy shopping! :D

Hi all! Just dropping off one image today, but stay tuned because I have tons of new releases to annouce Friday and Saturday! YAY!

I did this LO for the 11/16 Word Up challenge at ScrapMatters. The challenge was to use a famous slogan for the title of the LO. I searched and found Image is Everything from Canon. It was PERFECT for these pics of pumpkin carving! This LO features Boogity Boo by Designs by Tater.

And while we are on the subject of Canon- I bid on a Canon Rebel T1i on e-Bay and so far I am the only bidder! The auction ends tomorrow, so keep your fingers crossed for me! I have been craving a digital SLR camera for awhile and I am so looking forward to getting one! It is my early Christmas present, so I can take FABULOUS pics of my nieces when I visit them next month!!!

And speaking of Christmas- I get a computer too! Chel's hubby is building me a new desktop- woohoo! And I am going to upgrade to PSE 8, so my digital LO's will be even more fab after the new year!!!!

HUGS everyone, thanks for stopping by!!!
