A Little Frustrated Kit by The Urban Fairy

Take a look at this interesting kit just released by The Urban Fairy. You can find it here at The Digital Scrapbooking Studio.  This isn't your traditional "everything is coming up roses" type of kit.  Sometimes you just want to scrap the crazier moments in life..
Have you ever felt a little frustrated with something or someone and just wanted to SCREAM? I've been there. A lot. My recent level of frustration with my children and their apparent inability to pick up after themselves is what lead to this fun colored, frustrated kit! While leaning towards frustration, this kit can easily be used for every day pages! Included in this page kit are 65 elements and 8 12x12 papers.
  A great way to vent with out heads rolling!  

I have to admit that I struggled with this one.  What the heck was I going to scrap with this one?  Well along came Mother's Day and ALL I WANTED was a couple of cute pictures of me and the kids. Was that so much to ask?  Well, yes, apparently to my two wiggly toddlers.  Take a look at some of the shots my sister took of me and Jack...

It's actually kind of comical.  So my motto for this kit is "You scrap the good, you scrap the bad, you scrap them both and there you have the Scraps of Life, the Scraps of Life"...lol

My first client!

Hey everyone.I am so excited to announce that i just secured my first-ever paying client of ScraPicts. I met her (i'll just call her X for now..) at a women's grassroots networking group recently. X is a MaryKay professional and has commissioned me to help her put together a scrapbook for her best friend ("E") who is getting married in April 2014.  They have known each other since they were 3 so they have a lot of history together.  We had our first meeting last night and she gave me some great ideas for pages - including how they set up a little coffee cafe when they were kids which has blossomed into a dream of opening a real cafe. They also love Disney, traveling, their dogs, Sex in the City etc.  This is going to be a really fun project and will probably even include a collage of some late 90's things like Buffy the Vampire Slayer and the Backstreet boys .  I also scrapped one page for her of pictures from E's engagement party.  I used The Urban Fairy's MyWay SpringFling for this page.

as an alternative, using a Celebrate QP by the Sugar Babe Erin of Sweet Shoppe Designs

X has also asked me to help her with a networking Portfolio of her clients for whom she has done MK makeovers.  She is thinking of a page per client of before and after makeover picture as well as a short written section with the client's business contact info and perhaps a short bio or testimonial about the makeover etc. X envisions this not only as a portfolio of her work but also as a tool to connect her clients with potential clients for their own businesses.  She loves to help connect people and i think this will be a neat project!

What the heck is iNSD?

It's TODAY!  International Scrapbooking Day. I literally didn't even know what that stood for until about 2 weeks ago when the Urban Fairy, Dani, asked us to come up with a layout or two with her part of the Digiscrap Addicts blog train.  Here is her adorable piece, that is available for free here at The Urban Fairy's Blog!  You can check out the blog train and get a ton of cool freebies.

Here is my page - i just took this awesome bee pict and thought it was pretty springy!!

I am off to the Southern California Mothers of Twins Club meeting in Anaheim Ca today so I won't be doing much with iNSD.  Oh well. Maybe next year!!
