Cafe Au Lait (and Catching Up) May 30, 2012

Things have been really busy around here, so I haven’t done as much scrapping as I would like – but we’re enjoying “in the moment real life,” so that’s even better! 🙂 My in-laws are visiting us in Nigeria, and we’ve been having lots of fun (Sniff. Only one more week! 😦 ).

…But I have gotten to do a couple pages – and I’ve even been able to do some for, a-hem, Judah’s FIRST YEAR album.


I used this cute blue and brown kit, Cafe Au Lait, Refreshed, by Mommy Made This for the pages. I’m not a coffee drinker (love the smell, hate the taste), but this kit is great for those of you who are… but as you can see, it doesn’t really matter if you’re not. The blues and browns in the kit were perfect for catching up on my “baby” boy’s album!

You can pick up the kit at Stuff to Scrap and Scraps-n-Pieces!


Featured Product by Mommy Made This May 13, 2012

Happy Mother’s Day to all of you moms out there!

In celebration of Mother’s Day, here’s a picture of me and my mom many moons ago.

I’m rockin’ the baby bonnet, don’t you think??

Also in celebration of Mother’s Day, Mommy Made This has her kit, Rose Garden, as her featured product this month.  Here’s a look at the kit.

I’m not usually a big fan of flowers, but I really like this kit.  I’m not sure what it is – the colors, maybe (the pinks and greens look really pretty together), or the different elements, but I think this kit is quite pretty.  I even made a couple pages with it.  The first one is from a trip to Ireland several years ago – as soon as I saw the kit, I knew just what pictures to dig out of the “I really want to scrap that soon!” file!

The kit can be used for much more than gardening and Mother’s Day photos, though!

Oh my goodness, is she not the cutest thing you’ve ever seen??

The kit and cardstock will be on sale the entire month of May for 50% off at both Stuff to Scrap and Scraps-n-Pieces! And if you come back here on the 18th, there will be a little freebie for you!

…And Happy Mother’s Day! 🙂

Mommy Made This has a new kit out, Alphabet Zoo.  The colors are so much fun!  The kit is great for zoo pics, school pics and works for boy or girl pictures and has lots of elements.  Check it out!

Cute, right?? 🙂

In honor of Grandpa and Grandma “Plane” coming to visit us next week (Yay!), here’s a page I made with the kit of The Great Lizard Hunt of 2010.  😉

Great elements and papers in the kit!  Here’s another brighter page.

The kit and cardstocks (and there are a LOT of papers in the cardstock pack!) are on sale at Stuff to Scrap and Scraps-n-Pieces through May 17, so you still have a couple more days to grab it at a reduced cost!
