GREAT Grab Bag & LOTS of Layouts…

Just a quick post today… I somehow have ended up with only a tiny window of computer time this afternoon.  I had fun this morning visiting with my sister, Meg, and her daughter (who is the same age as my oldest son)… AND my grandpa too!  We hung out at the library – picked out some books and then walked around behind the building where they have a large park and duck pond.  My boys were giggling their heads off as they threw bits of food for the birds to chase after.  We all came over to my house afterward and had lunch… and this is the first chance I’ve had to pop online.  The rest of my day is going to be filled with my role as ‘mommy chauffeur’ taking my girls to this lesson or that activity etc etc etc… (you know how it goes…)

Anyway… enough boring you all with my ‘oh-so-thrilling’ life! LOL!  (Although I DO get to have a bit of ‘out of the ordinary fun’ tomorrow… it’s my husband’s birthday and we are going OUT! Woohoo!  **I’m not cooking dinner.. I’m not cooking dinner** Hooray!)

I wanted to make sure today that you all knew about Kim B’s latest Grab Bag!  Her products are always the HIGHEST quality and she’s offering them at am amazing deal!  (But you have to take advantage of the low price NOW before she takes the packs OUT of the grab bag…)


If you pop on over to Kim’s blog, you can see ALL OF THE PRODUCTS RIGHT NOW… EVEN BEFORE YOU BUY THE BAG!!!  She’s revealing the whole thing right at the ‘get-go- this time!  Woohoo!  Here is one of my faves from it:


Check out these cool bead spills!  LOVE ‘em!  So click HERE and check out Kim’s new bag in her store!!!  Hurry… GO!


I’ve been having a BLAST this week receiving all kinds of layouts from my friends and talented CT members!  I’ll show you the ones today that were created using my newest kit, ‘Joanne’s Eggs’ and ‘Joanne’s Egg-stra Eggs.’



Both of these products are currently on SALE at 25% off for a limited time… you can check them out in my store by clicking HERE!


This first page is from Elaine!  Love the blue accents!  And what a fantastic pic of her granddaughter in the tree!

This lovely, dramatic layout is by Marlene!  I really like the red and white flowers clustered in the corner!

Julia JoannesEggs1_72_53_500x_100k

The page ABOVE and the page BELOW were created by the talented Julia!  She SOMEHOW managed to include ALL of the eggs from the main kit AND the extra egg pack in these pages!  WOW!!!  (Now that takes some creative thinking!!!!)

Julia JoannesEggs2_72_55_500x_100k

(Julia also used shadow box frames and old wood printing block alpha by JenU designs.)  LOVE the eggs tucked into the pockets of the display case!

lou ann eggs-1_web

This sweet layout was sent to me by one of my newest CT members, Lou Ann(she also used word art by Paislee Press Spring Collection)  Anybody want to receive one of THOSE in their Easter Basket this year??? Too cute!

lumi BROOD

And check out this artistic STUNNER by Lumi!  How COOL is this?!?  So creative to use the feathers as wings and transform those eggs into little birds!  LOVE it!  She created a crown out of the paper grass as well… this girl has creativity just oozing out of her!  LOL!  (she also used Christina Renee's Old Cuts: Lil Birdies and an adaptation from a freebie at Old Photograph Album)  Thanks so much for sending this to me… it’s gorgeous!

bre german-Restaurant

If you look closely at the layout above, you’ll notice that Bre used the egg designs as patterned blocks in her page! (she also used a template by Lindsay Jane)  I LOVE how the patterns work so well with the picture!!!

bre the-easter-feast

And the last page I will show you today also comes from Bre!  (Who is also one of my brand new CT members!  Woohoo!)  I love how she used the egg patterns in her word art title!!!  (and she also used a CU scalloped border by Miss Tiina)

Soooo… do you feel like you deserve a freebie after browsing through this long picture post??? LOL!  Well… it’s Bre to the rescue today!  She turned her layout above into a quick page for all of you:
