Parisian Rose by Doxie Designs

My friend, Deb Mommens, has another great kit in her store. Since my son's new girlfriend loves pink (she blames it on being a SweetBriar girl), I thought it was perfect to make a journal cover with. I haven't re-sized it yet, so this is the large version. Think I'm also going to make a post-it pad cover for taking her post-its along in her purse.

You can find Deb's kit here:

Kit preview above. Grab it quick while it's still just $2.00

Sienna by Ashalee Wall

Soft pinks, ribbons and bows, flowers, and adorable baby items make this the perfect kit to scrap photos of any little girl in your life from infant on up. It's warm, elegant, and sweet. What more could you ask for? I scrapped one of my own baby photos with it and, afterward, looking at other A Wall items, thought how interesting it would be to combine this kit with the vintage nursery rhyme images Ashalee has. Will have to do that next time You can see the kit here:

Here's a layout of my nieces with a photo taken in 2000 by Nanny Pat (Pat Ball, their paternal grandmother). You can see from their tossled hair they had been hard at play minutes before she got them lined up for this casual shot. The background was distracting so I cropped it out and made a background from the kit.

And here's one of my own baby photos scrapped with Sienna:
