Theta presents "Fall Threads" available at Deco-Pages

Click here to see the kit
There is something special about sharing moments with children.. you can influence them.. 

When life gives you apples, you make Cranberry Apple Cider.  It's warm, its delicious and it's satisfying.  Try my recipe out.  I make enough to last a couple of days when the snow just keeps on coming or the temperature keeps on dropping. 

Winter ushers in Spring.. it's coming!

Stargazer Musing, designer at Kreative Kreations

and i wouldn't want them too.  I create for Kreative Kreations and this month one of my designers is "Stargazer Musing".  I chose her wonderful kit "My Loving Heart".  It's so suitable for "valentine's day" or any romantic day.  I created two layouts to showcase the versatility of the kit.  I hope you enjoy them.  Thanks for looking and leave a little love won't you.


Kreative Kreations

Quick programming note for Kreative Kreations.  They are moving their servers today and they are kind of up and down so if you have any difficulty getting into the site, keep that in mind.  They will be back online as soon as possible and I will update you when that happens.   I now return you to your regularly scheduled viewing ..... LOL.. okay.. just a little TV humor.

The Race has started ...

The first challenge has arrived... let the fun begin... 


Our first challenge is to scrap my partner... and include a picture of her.  It's 7:43AM and I have my coffee next to me.  So I'm ready to begin the thought process.... check back later... for my outcome. 


The Snow Fall in Philadelphia

We got a record 27.3 inches of snow.  This was the 2nd highest total in our cities history.  The current title is held by the 1996 snow fall which gave us over 30 inches of snow.  Take a look at my window. 

We will be getting more tomorrow (Tuesday) night.

We are Qadirah (QadirahDesigns) and Lajuana (scrapladyandmore) CT members here at Deco-Pages. And we are Team Number 164 entered in the Amazing Digi Scrapping Race (ADSR). This is the 5th year for this fun event and the first time for either of us to participate. We travel from host site to host site the next 6 weeks receiving 2 challenges each week. There's deadlines and prizes with each challenge.

I worked up this LO and the blinkie below and they are our official Avatar and blinkie for the race. Qadirah is building us a blog today where you can follow us during this amazing scrapping race. Of course, we will be posting our LOs here and hope to set up a Thread where you all can follow us from here as well.
