Fresh Baked: Feb. 15, 2013

Happy Day after Valentine’s. Anyone else gorge themselves way too much on chocolate? I know that I did. I think that’s the point of Valentine’s Day. Right? Oh well if it’s not. It’s how we celebrate it.

I am loving looking at the love-filled layouts with this month’s buffet, Listen to Your Heart. I picked from the Buffet Challenge gallery this week, and if you’re wanting an “easy” challenge to do, this is definitely one for you!

Created by our own Spotlight Challenge host, Ambelleina. I have to giggle at the pictures. I love layouts that talk about why they love their significant other!

Sneak Peek

Happy Valentine’s Day!!!!  I hope you all are able to spend the day with the ones you love.  It’s going to be a quiet day around here.  I’m thinking a quick trip to the gym and then I’m spending the day with my hubby.  We are going to catch an early movie and hopefully miss the crowd.  We are spending a little time with my folks which we are pretty excited about visiting with them before they leave town.  Enough about my plans let’s get to why you stopped by.   I have a few layouts  that I want to share with you.  The full reveal of these kits will be on Friday and they will also be on SALE.  And, I can’t wait!!

First up is Sugar Kissed Designs.  I love the natural hues in this kit.  The brown and peach are fabulous together and I really dig the Alpha.  The blocking in both layouts look amazing!!

The next layout I have for you is using Becka E Designs new kit.  I love the crisp blue and the white just pops right off the page. I can’t wait till Spring time.  It will be wonderful to open the windows and let the fresh air in.

Well, that’s all I have for now so I hope you have enjoyed the sneak peeks and don’t forget they will be on sale this weekend for a short while.  Thanks for stopping by and I really wish  everyone a day filled with love:)

Challenge Spotlight – Template Challenge #1

Hello ladies and happy Tuesday!  🙂  Hope everyone’s week is off to a wonderful start; I am getting ready for my first test of the semester and I’m a little nervous; wish me luck! This week I am spotlighting a challenge with a freebie: the first template challenge hosted by Rebecca of Twin Mom Scraps!  Note: this challenge only runs through February 15, so make sure you snag it and post your submission before it goes away! Take a look at the template:

Really cute, Rebecca! I’m always a sucker for paper stacks, so you know I love this template! I’ve got big plans for this template…  😉  Of course, the layouts are already pouring into the gallery and forum. If you need some inspiration  just take a look below for a few of my favorite submissions so far…

Awesome layouts! If you notice, I also picked three pages where the template had been modified. Whether by adding a photo, taking one away or using as-is, this template is pretty versatile and I’m loving how everyone is using it for all different scrapping occasions. If you like these layouts as much as I do, drop by the gallery and leave them some love! 🙂

Now that you’re sufficiently inspired, run and go scrap! Again, the first template challenge is only through the 15th, so don’t delay in getting this one done and tallied in the February 2013 Challenge Points Tracking thread! The more challenges you complete this month, the bigger a reward you get; click here for all the rewards info. If you have  questions about this or any of the monthly challenges, head over to the Cookie Jar and ask away! We’ll get you an answer as soon as possible. 🙂

I’m off for now to go study some for my test and shouldn’t you be scrapping? 😉 See y’all next week!
