Scrapbook Saturday: A Little Something to Perk You Up!

It's that time again -- time to take a peek at another wonderful digital scrapbook layout by designer Melissa Craig. This week Melissa has created a very fun page about her sister's broken foot. Now I know that isn't something we might normally "celebrate" per se, but Melissa and her sister have such a fun relationship, always finding the good in any situation. Take a peek at the journaling, and you'll see evidence of this. Her sister's foot looks so adorable with her fresh pedicure! Melissa used an image, sentiment, and digital paper from the "Whole Latte Love" set, along with her MyMemories Suite (TM) to create this layout. So playful and sweet, despite the not-so-fun circumstances of the photo! :-)

Folder Fun

Digis make great accents for all sorts of projects! This beautifully-decorated file folder is a terrific example. This wonderful project was created by designer Rhonda Miller, using the Pocket Pal Bunny set. The sweet papers give this a lovely, fresh feel, and the purple bunny is so fun! Rhonda really took this to the next level by decorating the back of the folder, too. Wouldn't a set of these make a fantastic gift? They would sure inspire me to be more organized! :-)

Rain or Shine

The best friends are those that stick with you through thick and thin, through rain or shine. Today's share by designer KT Fit Kitty celebrates that kind of enduring friendship. Kitty used the "Rainy Day" set to create this heartfelt card. I really like how she included elements of both the "rain" and the "shine" in this. From the sparkly rain puddle and adorable umbrella charm to the cheery flower accents and floral piecing on the umbrella, this card covers it all. What a blessing to have the kinds of friends that stand by you through rain or shine, and what a wonderful card to celebrate them!

Challenge Inspiration Week 3

We're at about the halfway point for this month's Digi of the Month Challenge. Have you played along yet? If not, we sure hope you will! As I've mentioned before, this month's featured set -- "Uneggspected" -- includes two images instead of the usual one image, so there's a lot of flexibility with what you can create. Since there are two images in the set, today I thought I'd share two fabulous cards to hopefully inspire you to play along with our challenge.

This first card (at the top of the post) was made by designer Donna Hanley using the image of Oscar hatching from the egg. I know, I know...cats don't hatch from eggs, but wouldn't it be fun if they did?

Our second card today was made by designer Carol Longacre, using the egg-spectant hen image. Do you think she has any idea what she's working towards hatching? Probably not, but that makes it all the more fun!

Happy St. Paddy's Day!

Happy St. Patrick's Day! Today we have a wonderful "Irish" card made by designer NanaConnie to share with you. NanaConnie used one of the images from the "Irish Blessings" set to create this. The green and gold papers give it that wonderful Irish feel, and the leafy punched border around the image piece is so lovely!

Whether you're Irish or just enjoying "playing" Irish for the day, I wish you a good one. May your blessings, today and everyday, outnumber the shamrocks that grow! :-)
