Grilling It Outdoors, New Release by Pizazz Pixels

It has been a busy week!  I am so glad it is Friday so we can take a little breather!  It has been so hot where we live so we have been trying to keep cool indoors.  There was a big downpour of much needed rain, thoug,h which lasted about 10 minutes so at least the temperature dropped a bit and the grass and flowers got a little drink!  Now as I write this post, it is still 90 degrees at 10:41 at night! Yikes!

Here is my latest release--"Grilling It Outdoors" which is a huge collection of different ways that you can cook over an open fire.  All items are in greyscale so you can add your own colors, patterns, textures, etc. to create some unique elements to fit in perfectly with YOUR photos!



Stores where you can purchase this kit:

My Store at Digi Style Designs
My Store at Heartfelt Perfections

CT layout for Roughing It In Style

Everyone having a relaxing Sunday?  We just had my parents over for a nice barbecue and the food was fantastic!  Luckily we had lunch because as the day goes on, it is getting hotter and hotter outside!  For dessert I made  a Coke a Cola Cake which is so moist and rich and chocolaty!  A dear friend and neighborhood Southern gal gave me the recipe about 10 years back and I still make it today and think of her!  I am really full right now!

I want to share with you a layout which Arimbi created using my latest release....

Doesn't this just remind you of a perfect quilting pattern with all those blocks and patterns along with some interesting other bits scattered around? My favorite blocks are the top center and the lower right ones.  These are set inside the paper for a more 3D type of look.  Also, she placed 4 of my papers to form a square at the right center to create a square which was totally unique and different than the rest!

The way she changed that lower left hand photo was truly artistic too--she created it using part color, part black and white and then she blocked off the color portion--just incredible for effect!~

Finally, the way she used her daughter's initial B to really complete the layout was just precious!

If you love this, than you will also love the kit--it is actually on sale now for 50% off only at my store at Digi Style Designs until Monday, July 20.

CT Layout - Roughing It In Style



As you are reading this, I am actually going to be watching our daughter swim at her first ever outdoor swim meet.  She just joined a team this year at 11 years old and has grown so much in her skill!  At the start she did a 50 yard in about 2 minutes and I am proud to say that she has shaved this to a 1 minute, 9 seconds --amazing right?  I am huffing it at 25 yards and just looking at that way back wondering if I can make it--ah to be young again and have some drive too!

Since I am scheduling this post, I wanted to show off a layout which Kristine just finished using my latest full sized mega kit--Roughing It in Style.

I just love how she clustered all those trees to the side and her matting for the photos was perfect to really accent the people and scenery!  The journaling, if you take some time to read, is so inspiring too!  Kristine shares something so personal.  She is really a remarkable woman who has been through so much health wise but still continues to work, be a mom, a wife, a friend. and also a great dependable CT member too who keeps me on my toes and helps me stay organized!  (I am sure a lot of you can relate to struggle and whenever I feel down about something, I just keep positive because so many others are enduring so much and my problems seem so insignificant in comparison to what so many people have to endure every single second)
 
Thanks Kristine and continue to stay healthy and strong!

My Fourth of July - Sample of free Quick Page offered as a participation prize

Did everyone have a nice 4th of July?  My husband has been home since Thursday, so we have enjoyed a lot of family time over the last few days!  We went to a parade on the 4th where our son marched and passed out the Constitution of the US with his cub scout troop.  We also went to a local city where we enjoyed an evening of fun and fireworks.  We go back to where we grew up and the fireworks are launched about 1/4 of a mile away from where the crowd sits.  We just love it because you can see those breathtaking displays of color right up close!  Some years, if the wind blows just right, we actually feel the soot from the fireworks --yes, we are that close! 

Here is a layout which I created to show off some of the highlights of our night during the 4th of July.

Do you like the page?  Well, if so, I thought I would offer it free with one small catch.  If I see 5 different people create a similar layout like the one I have posted in the forum for the July Scraplift Challenge at Wilma4Ever and post them in the thread, I will give away this page for free as a participation prize (along with your choice of another participation prize as mentioned in the challenge). 

The black spaces are actually transparent so you can put your own photos in each of those boxes!
