Gotta Pixel Goodness

I worked with 2 really fun kits this month over at Gotta Pixel!

I just love Splish Splash, a collab from Spinky Dink Scraps and Jaya Prem’s Hangout.  It is an adorable kit perfect for all your bathtime pictures and beyond.

I did this layout for December’s Simply Sketchy challenge hosted by Laura of Simply.Scraps

And this one for the December Element Challenge, which was to use stitching in at least 2 places:

 

Lil Arteest by Sweet Digi Scraps has a bright rainbow of colors, super cute doodles, and fun elements for all of your little Picasso’s masterpieces!

I also used her Spring Fever Templates to create this layout:

And I did this one for a Connie Prince Speed Scrap, also using the alpha from Karen Lewis’s Out of This World:

No Bake Double Decker Fudge

In the midst of all the holiday baking, there are lots of recipe exchanges going around!  I would like to share my favorite indulgence with you!  I love that it is a no-bake recipe with virtually no clean up!

This recipe makes a big batch, but you can also cut it in half and make it in an 8x8 pan.   Another variation we love in my house is to just use the semi-sweet chocolate but mix in coarsely chopped m&m’s after the microwave.

Ramona the Pest New Releases

I am really behind in my posting, so grab a snack and get ready to see lots of adorable kits and some of my favorite layouts!

Love Walks In

Ramona’s husband dared her that she couldn’t make a romantic kit using this bright fun color palette.  Obviously, Ramona won this one!  To celebrate the release of New Moon, I did a Twi-tastic page using a template from Marni Designs.

Baby on Board

Ramona has generously volunteered to create a kit for each of us on her CT!  Laura is baking herself a mini brownie, so Ramona created this beautiful pregnancy kit!  I love that it is unisex and coordinates so easily with other kits!  I also love the look of all black and white layouts.

I haven’t created any pages with this one yet, though I have a couple pictures of my sister’s belly from her first (who turned a year yesterday!), and I’m hoping to get some belly pictures again soon!  She’ll find out this Friday what she’s having, and my fingers are crossed for a girl!

Picture a Christmas

Ramona created this adorable Christmas kit to help us remember the reason for the season.  These felt nativity characters are just too adorable!  Do you love it too?  Visit Ramona’s blog for a chance to win it!

I also picked up Christmas Wonder, the Designer Collab kit for December!

I used this fun kit for a special Brownie Addicts Speed Scrap today!

Ramona has another Christmas kit releasing on Saturday, it’s another super cute one, so stay tuned!

Happy Scrapping!
