Fresh Baked: May 31, 2013

Did you notice the date? It’s the end of the month! I know! I’m still getting used to it being May, and now it’s going to be June tomorrow. I can’t say too much, but next month’s buffet is going to be a big hit, I think. There have been a lot of requests for this theme! So make sure you keep an eye out for tomorrow’s newsletter!

The designers this week did a variety of things. Katie Creates has an adorable girly-girly kit full of make-up. Connie is all focused on graduation and the end of school. Aprilisa has a kit perfect for every barbeque. ViolaMoni has some masks that I need to get myself!

I’m excited to show off the layouts this week. I had such a hard time choosing just three this week! All three layouts this week were created using Spring Fling, the May buffet.

Beautiful layout by Nandy. The yellow paper just makes the whole layout pop so beautifully. The clusters are wonderful as well!

This layout created by justpennys. I love how the paper pieces point to the pictures! Beautifully done!

Wonderful layout by Lisa. I love the flower cluster as it frames 2/3 of the picture. So well done!

Sneak Peek 5-30-13

Hey Scrappers!  How are you doing this week?  I can’t wait to scrap some of our pictures from our Memorial Day weekend.  We kept our get together very small this year but,  our memories of all that have served and sacrificed for this great Nation were in our thoughts.

I have a few things for you to take a peek at….I can hardly wait to show them to you so here we go.

This kit from Aprilisa Designs  looks like it will be perfect for all the cookout and summertime fun pictures.  I love the papers and I just love the little hamburger and popsicle elements. This is way too cute!!!

This layout just shows off the other wonderful elements in this kit.  Great job ladies!!

I love the look of this sneak peek by Violamoni.  The color are so soft and sweet.  I love the little tag that says message in a bottle. I can’t wait to see the entire kit.

Well, that’s all I have to share with you right now.  I hope everyone has a safe rest of the  week and get out there and make memories.

I’ll see ya next week!
