Challenge Spotlight – Mini Kit Challenge

Good morning, scrappy ladies! Can you believe it’s already mid-March? Time really is flying by! It was just Christmas and now it’s Spring Break–crazy how time flies! This week I am spotlighting the mini kit challenge hosted by Rachel of Pretty in Green. The mini she’s created for us is perfect for slowing down time a bit and scrapping a life in the week. It’s called This Week and I am kind of loving the color palette; take a look:

I am really liking candy-colored, stripy kits lately and this mini is just right up my alley!  You know with an adorable mini like this, the layouts have been flying in. Here are a few of my favorites for inspiration…

I could seriously post every single layout that’s been submitted because everyone is working this mini! :) I’m going to keep this short and sweet and remind you to post in the March Challenge Points Tracking Thread and start tallying your completed challenges so you can snag a sweet reward once the month is done! Even if you just snag this mini and create a layout with it, you are eligible for a reward–sweet deal! :D

If you have any questions about how this or any of our monthly challenges work, swing by the Cookie Jar and ask away! That’s about all I have for you this morning; hope y’all have a great day and a wonderful week! :)

Fresh Baked: March 08, 2013

We’re already a week into March. I cannot believe it. Soon, we’ll be doing the pinching if you’re not wearing the green. That’s next Sunday, in case you’re curious. Me, I love this holiday.

Today, I might not be saying “Lucky Me” because my kids are off today, but I’m saying it about y’all! The designers worked hard getting things out for you this week, and I also picked out a few of some gorgeous layouts created by some members of the forum!


Created by Lyndsfairne. I love the use of the word art, the clustering. It’s jut beautiful!


Created by hivart. Sheeps! I love sheeps. Yes, I typed sheeps. They’re adorable! The layout is quite beautiful as well!

Good Morning!!

I hope everyone is doing well.  March has arrived and in my neck of the woods it brought snow.

The kids were excited about being out of school.  They enjoyed the day sipping hot chocolate and watching movies.  I enjoyed the day scrapping a little and shopping a lot..

I really love the colors together in this new kit by Inspired Designs.  Here are a few that I just LOVE!!  I can’t wait to see the entire kit on Friday. I love the black and white photo on this layout it truly is beautiful.

This is perfectly perfect.  I love the stripes in the background .  Super job:)

This layout is is adorable and I really like the photo treatment .  It really seems like any kind of pictures will be gorgeous with this kit.

I really love the cluster work and  all the layered  patterned paper looks awesome!

Angelclaud Artroom has a new release and from the look of this layout I can’t wait to see the whole package.

That’s all I have for you today.  Make sure you check back on Friday for these releases and many more and don’t forget they will be on sale.  I hope everyone has a wonderful Thursday and I will see you next week.
