Leaving a Legacy Designs is featuring the wintery kit, Just Chill, over at Stuff to Scrap today. Download my freebie cluster I made with the kit and then go buy the kit and add some fun papers and other snowy creatures to keep the penguin company.  You know you need to get those winter photos scrapped sooner rather than later!

Here is a  layout I made using a different version of the frame cluster.....I'd love to see yours!

(I posted this one before in a blog entry, but I wanted to share the frame cluster so you can use it for your snow photos, so I made some changes and created the png file just for you.)

Vernazza Italy

I wanted to do a layout with one of the TD52 kits, since a new month is coming up. I scanned through The Daily Digi blog and found this to scraplift:

 Layout by Kelsey using One Moment by Studio Rosey Posey

I copied it pretty much item by item, then chose a photo and sort of winged it after that.  Here is mine:

This was pretty much a throw-away picture in my photo album from Europe, but with some digi magic, it becomes very interesting and intriguing.  While walking around Vernazza, I point my camera up one of the narrow alleys and caught that lovely door at the top.  I love how digiscrapping can rescue ho-hum pictures!!!

Vintage Ballerina Freebie

I inherited a lot of ephemeria from my mother.  She kept albums and scrapbooks and never threw them away and they came down to me.  I have finally gotten around to scanning pages from magazines from the early part of the century and would like to share.  This first freebie is a ballerina that she had cut out from somewhere and glued into her journalism notebook.  Just click on the image for
download.  PU only.  Enjoy.

(If you do make a layout using the ballerina, please leave a link to it in the comments, I love new ideas)

Babies and Sinks

Bathing babies in a sink is fun. And when you have a brand new copper farmhouse sink to bathe her in, even more fun.

The French Cooking School Story

While in Europe, I got the chance to go to a 2 day French Cooking School arranged by the Women's Club of the Taunus.  This was one trip that Larry would not let me go to alone, so we called Mr. Hibsham, our school teacher/babysitter and headed for France with a bunch of my friends.  Here are the two pages I made today documenting (finally) the story.  And, yes, that is me with the Chef in the bottom right corner of the first layout.

Religious Sculpture with a Purpose

I wonder how many tourists visiting the beautiful cathedrals all over Europe are aware of just why the entrances are heavily adorned with sculpture.  Something that to us modern day travelers is simply decorative was essential to the worshipers of the day to tell them the stories of the Bible......the everyday man of the time could neither read nor write.

Butterfly Is Free

My sweet friend Lynn teaches first grade and I go in once a week to interact with the class, help with crafts, and read with a sweet little girl.  Today the class let the butterfly that had watched change from a caterpillar fly free.  How much fun has that been?
