Amusment Park Memories

Hey, it’s been a while since I last posted but it is summer time and I have found that time is going by way too fast!  I have three layouts to post today using the latest and greatest kit from Pizazz Pixels called Dreaming of a Mouse.  This kit would be absolutely perfect for those Disney Land or Disney World photo’s!  But, I have one of those kids that doesn’t like amusement rides and would rather be at a baseball game than go to an amusement park.  He never has liked the rides and is a teen now and he hasn’t even gone to the local county fair since we took him there around the age of four.  Sad……

So here are some 6 Flags Magic Kingdom photos from a family vacation we took so long ago.  In fact I wanted to remember the name of the big killer whale that we saw when we were there.  I looked it up online and found that the killer whale Shouka had lunged at her trainer almost one year ago today.  They finally moved her to San Diego’s Sea World on August 21st, 2012.  She had been left alone without companionship and killer whale’s don’t like being alone is why she probably became aggressive.  My son really enjoyed her show so much that he even preformed himself when we returned to the hotel pool that night.

You can find this kit and many others at Pizazz Pixel’s three stores located here:

I hope you are having a fabulous summertime, school and everything that goes along with that is just around the corner.  Treasure those last fun summer time memories you have with your children.

I couldn’t believe it….

Hi there,

I went to buy something at the digital store OSD  One Story Down the other night when the store wouldn’t open!  At the time I thought they were just updating.  Then a few days later I went to a blog that sells at ODS where she announced that OSD went down and their back up didn’t work either.  So they are down until they completely rebuild their site.  Wow!  Just as I was getting started with the OSD The Loft challenge.  So The Loft Journal Challenges are on hold until further notice.

And Divine Digital is really closing down this next week on the 28th of February.  A real big bummer!  On the plus side maybe I won’t download as much digital content from here on out? 

I am working diligently on finding a new home/forum to spend time in.  So far this is the list I am working from. 

My Scrapbook Art  I love this place too.  They have a great newsletter that exposes me to new designers.  As well they also have a featured designer and a Art Scocial Collab that they offer each month for a really good price.  This is one place I plan to continue to frequent but need to look into the forum.

Sweet Shoppe Designs I love this place but haven’t visited the forum here.  I do love the designers here though.

Deviant Scrap  This place is awesome if you are looking to Art Journal, I haven’t visited the forum here yet but plan to.

One Story Down   This link isn’t working as of now but should work again soon. (I hope)  I was really liking the company “Creative Thinking” I haven’t found that they are selling anywhere else yet.

Scrapflower  This store closed in October or November of last year only to re-open the beginning of February.  Afraid to start where it could close again?

Scrap Orchard  I haven’t spent much time here to see all the designers.  They do have a daily freebie that they send out via the newsletter.

The Lillypad  I have a designer or two I like here but not shopped here much.

The Daily Digi  This is one of my homes that I plan to keep.  I love this place and pay $7.00 a month to get new designs each month.

Gotta Pixel  This has some good designers but not been to the forum.

Shabby Shoppe  I have been here for the free downloads, they are beautiful.  But I will be looking to see what designers are here and if I like them.

Designer Digitals  I have been here but find it a bit expensive.

Studio et Designs @ Scrapbookgraphics  – Studio Girls  I am loving the art journal types of designers they have there.  Like Captivated Visions, Tangie Baxter, Dawn Inskip and Viva Artistry.  There are so many wonderful designers there I have only listed a few that I have gotten familiar with recently.

Digital Scrapbook Places  This was the very first place I went when I got my Bamboo Pen.  They are responsible for all of my hard drives of digital artwork.  They have great tutorials and great desingers.  I just feel they are a little expensive too.

Peppermint Creative  They have the coolest list of Scrapbook Phrases available. This is unique to scrapbooking stores I have seen.

Digital Scrapbook Art

Weeds and Wildflowers  Not shopped here.

Oscraps  Has great designers here, and they have a monthly freebie.

Mscraps  This site also has great designers and a montly freebie as well.

Jessica Sprague  This site has great artists, classes to join.  I haven’t gone to the forum yet.

Digital Scrapbooking Studio  this site has a bunch of good designers, the forum is exciting, and they have a designer contest every year.

Digi Style Designs   This place has a few of my Divine digital designers that are moving.

Southern Comfort Scraps   This place has a few of my Divine digital designers that are moving.

Wilma4Ever    This place has a few of my Divine digital designers that are moving.

Ivy Scraps    This place has a few of my Divine digital designers that are moving.

There are so many more stores out there with really good qualities.  Even these I have listed have great qualities about them that I haven’t listed.  I made this list so I could get to them quickly to further my research.  Perhaps you might take a look at them too if you are looking for a new place to call home.  Let me know if there are any links that need fixed.

A couple more layouts submitted.

Hi,

I thought it had been a few weeks since I last published here.  And I have entered two more layouts.  I will post them  below.

Most recently I used a beautiful kit called “Color in Dark Places”  by Andrea Gold Designs.  It is a really beautiful kit that I just had to buy the second I saw it.  Right now it you can find it at Divine Digital but after the 28th of February that will no longer be the case.  Divine Digital is closing its doors.  Everyone is so very disappointed, but it is in the best interest of the owner that this takes place.  They will all be missed!

Divine Diva Challenge Kit

Here is the kit that I created with just the paper and embellishments.  I didn’t buy the glitter or clusters that you can also buy at the link provided above.

Now I will update you on the progress with ODS “The ArtLoft Challenge”  They announced the winner and posted those on the 10th.  And then posted Week 3’s new challenge.  First here is my week 2 submission.  I wasn’t very happy with it.  Next time I will do better.

Challenge 2

Challenge #3

Now the new challenge #3 and the items they are giving us for the challenge.

 This will be very interesting to say the least.  Hopefully I will be in a better “place” this week for us to use.  The project isn’t due until 2/24/13 but that always seems to sneak upon me.

If you want to take part visit “the loft “ to get your download and instructions.

Thanks for stopping by to see what is going on.  I have had a flu bug and some ongoing health issues so I have taken it easy lately.  I hope you come back to see if I can pull off a win at the l loft!  hehehe (wishful thinking) 🙂

Life got in the way!

I told you last time that I was wanting to enter the OSD The Art Journal Challenge.  I did get the page done (mostly) and then didn’t have time to post it.  That’s the pits!  I am going to post it here anyway but I feel it still needs something added to it.  I haven’t been able to find that little something that it needs.  I will add to it someday when that little something jumps out at me.  Perhaps you might have an idea for me?

Challenge #1 that  I didn't enter!

The winners of Challenge #1 are here.  So challenge #2 I will give it another go.  This link will take you directly to this weeks challenge.  “Challenge #2”  This weeks challenge is due by 2/9/13, I’m very happy to give it another try.

Have a nice Sunday in your home as I plan to do today.  Even if it is helping my sweetheart of a son with his homework.  You take what you can get when they start getting too busy for family time.  🙂
