Simple Scrapper May Blog Hop

I'm hopping along today with Simple Scrapper! Make sure that you check out the end for a giveaway.  Here are my contributions for May!

This layout uses one of the May Story Starters. I love how the Story Starters provide starting points for pages and help me use my photos in different ways.

Here's my layout using the May templates which just rock. I love that this particular template has two spaces for journal cards. I don't know about you, but I keep buying them and having an easy way to incorporate them into my pages just makes me happy.

Pixels & Company iNSD Creative Team Blog Hop!!

welcome to my stop on the pixels & company insd creative team blog hop.

 i was asked to choose four of my favorite kits to share with you. i chose:

robyn meierotto's like a fox kit - who can resist that dapper fox couple? the fall color pallette is smokin' and robyn just rocks the patterns like no one's business.

gennifer bursett's made of awesome kit - the colors in this kit just speak to me and it's super versatile. this might just be my favorite kit ever. and gennifer is beyond cool so you can't go wrong. (and i'm not just saying that so she doesn't fire me!)

karla dudley's geeked - a graphic kit that is not too childish that works great for my computer obsessed tween boy! the colors here are so fun and she's included a ton of great elements. heck it's fun for grown ups too...

lastly, new to p&co is mommyish with be spring already. the colors and elements in this kit make me want to get out and work in the yard. so fresh and fun. certain to help me chase away the winter doldrums! i haven't had a chance to play with this one yet but it's next on my list!
