Enjoy the Earth layouts from Deia

May is just around the corner folks!  It has been a very gloomy, rainy day where I live so it has been a rough start to the week.  What brightened my day, though, was that one of my Creative Team Members emailed me a few layouts which she created using my "Enjoy the Earth" kit.  Here they are:

I must say both give a fitting tribute to the Earth to celebrate Earth Day! 

The kit is available in all of my stores to the right of this blog if you are interested.  (There is a freebie which coordinates to this kit a few posts back.)

Thanks again Deia--another set of beautiful pages!

Cancer Alliance Blog - How to Use Creativity to Cope

Cancer Alliance Blog

I recently became aware of a Cancer Alliance blog which focuses on creativity as a means for healing for cancer survivors or others who might be facing some other health obstacles.  (They have found that “Many cancer survivors have used creativity as an outlet to make it through treatments or to celebrate cancer in remission. Entire support groups have been formed to help patients cope with a cancer prognosis.”)  Therefore, this blog offers encouragement and also offers a whole community of support for those who might be facing some serious health issue.

Here is a brief summary of How Cancer Survivors Have Use Creativity to Cope
  1. Join Support Groups the Promote Creativity:  Join others to bond, share and be inspired by each other’s art form.
  2. Go On a Creative Retreat for Cancer Survivors
  3. Paint or Photograph Image:
  4. Act or Model
I feel that we all know someone (if not having a first hand experience ourselves) in dealing with health obstacles so I wanted to share this Cancer Alliance blog with you.  I have also decided to add the Inspiration Advocate button to my blog to help raise awareness.

To get more information on this organization, you can check out this blog: Mesothelioma Cancer Alliance. 

Warm wishes everyone,

May is just around the corner and that means The Blog Train is leaving the station again for its bi-monthly mega mega digital goodies train.  Here is a preview of the swatch we were given.
The theme was "A Royal Wedding" so be prepared for some kits to scrap those summer weddings which are quickly approaching.

Year in Review: May Flower Power Freebie: Cluster

I am super excited to announce the first member of my Creative Team--Deia, AA Designs has joined me and she is one talented scrapper!  The kit she used was "Year in Review:  May (Flower Power) by myself

Here are the two layouts which Deia created using the above kit:
Aren't those clusters just beautiful?  I loved how she used bits and pieces of the kit to form those scraps and boarders and frames--simply stunning!

Here is a brief biography for Deia.

My name is Ana Andréia but my family and friends calls me Déia. I'm from Brazil and I am 32 years old and married.
I love animals--especially cats.
I've been playing with PSP since 2006, but I stopped for 5 years because of my last job. But since I got married,  my husband has encouraged me to return to work with digital scrapbooking, and last year I returned to work on Paintshop Pro and started to dedicate myself to Photoshop as well.
I love to create layouts and kits.  I pretend to be a designer one day-- just need to improve my skills. But I wouldn't stop my layouts creations--It's relaxing to me.
As a special gift to all my blog readers, Deia created this beautiful cluster for you!  You can download this from media fire here:  Download link

Have a wonderful day and thanks again Deia!

After Tax Sale at Digi Style Designs--Mark your Calendars

Did everyone meet the dreaded tax deadline?  We were late this year--just completed the paperwork last week and mailed in the forms about a few days before the deadline.  The good news is that we ended up with a refund for both the Federal and State so I am pretty happy about that.  With the extra money, I am going to do some shopping! 

Speaking of taxes, at Digi Style Designs, many of the designers, including myself, are having a sale on our products. Personally, I am going to be having a 50% off sale starting this Saturday (the 21st) through the 28th (next Saturday).  Here are the details...
