New Template Pack and 2 Freebie Thank You Note Templates


Okay, I’ve finished my lastest template pack.  If you are interested in purchasing my newest 10 pack of templates for the special price of $5, please send a request, along with the $5 payment, via Pay Pal to with NEW TEMPLATE Pack in the Subject or Notes line.   You will receive a link to your files usually within 3-12 hours

Here’s a preview of the template pack:


And of course, a link the the freebie Thank You Card Templates you’ve been waiting for.  These template cards are saved in layered PSD files to make customization easier for you.  Create the card with the blanks, print them out, and have your child fill in the blanks.  Makes saying thank you that much easier.

I am no longer selling my templates in stores.  It is just too much work for me to keep up with a store and my blog and my photography business.  And remember, if you live in the Austin Area and are looking for an affordable Lifestyle Photography, please visit BFA Photography and contact me. 

Blessings and Happy Scrapping!

What’s Been Going On?


Well, for one thing, I have been creating LO for the lovely designers who allow me to use their designs.  It’s been one crazy of a semester.  It started off fairly easy and ended with me in bed, twice.  After running 3 5ks in a week’s time, I suffered from a stress fracture.  A stress fracture in which nothing but staying off it and wearing a blue boot will relieve any pain.  Thankfully, I am all healed up and have been given the go to start training again –a 1/2 marathon this time. I’m going to do it, and I’m going to do it well.  I’m very excited.  But before I can start training, I have to get over this LOVELY Sinus and Lower Respiratory Infection that has been lingering for months.  We are starting month 2 with a terrible cough, and a pulled rib muscle.  Sucks. 

But that hasn’t kept me from taking photos.  If you’re in the Austin Area and are looking for a lifestyle photographer, please see my new photography business BFA Photography for any information or to book a session.  A complete session is $150 for 1 – 2 on location to take the photos.  Within a week you will receive a CD with up to 50 files for you to view, print, and enlarge.  I offer printing, and “extras” like collages, black and white, and storyboards, as well as cards and announcement for an additional fee. 

Feel free to contact me.  Again, enough about the photography business.  My scrapbook business has taken a hiatus, and I am loving receiving emails asking for more of my templates so I’ve decided to just sell them here on my blog.  So tell others about it.  Some of the items will be on specials, others will be full price.  Some will be old, and some will be new. But all I know, is they will be templates!

And some will just be fun.  This LO that I’ve created this evening using Ice Storm by Flergs, is available as a template for $2.  If you love the kit, be sure to grab it from scrapbookgraphics – Ice Storm.


If you want the template, you can send me a request for the template by sending  $2 through pay pal –  with JOY Template in subject line.  Here’s the template, not in action.  It is saved in layered PSD files at 3600 DPI.  Once I receive your payment, I will happily email you the zip folder location :)


I will have another template pack coming soon.  I’m very excited about getting back into the groove of things, not just at home, with photography, and in general, but also in the digital scrapbooking world.

MIA - and a FREEBIE from Flergs


Well, I've been MIA for a while.  Scrapping has seemed to become a quiet pastime of mine.  But that will be changing as I have a new class to scrap as well as a school year for each of my kiddos.  I'm still finishing up my class scrapbook from last year.  I've been stuck on the last couple pages - just can't seemed to sit down and finish them.  Of course, now that I've said that, I will sit down and do that today.  Need to get them done so I can send the links to my parents and let them relive the Three's class at Noah's Ark in pictures.

I'm the Historian for Hannah's PTA so along with her personal class scrapbook, I will be creating a scrapbook for the entire school year.  Of course, due to permissions, privacy etc, I won't be able to share those pages.  But I will share the ones I create as a Mommy for my both children.  I guess I should get started.

Flergs has some great new stuff out - her RAWKING kit for boys, Carver, for one.



And I couldn't be more excited about the new kit coming out on the 25th.  Here's a sneak peek.



To make up for my lack of blogging, I wanted to share with you this adorable elements pack that Flergs has on her blog for FREE.  We've missed the sale, but the freebie link is still good.  If you love it, be sure to tell her.  This is something new she's thinking about making more of.  Click on the image to go to her blog and grab the freebie!!


Battle of the Creative Teams


So, I'm totally honored to work on Flergs' (Megs Farrow) Creative Team.  Totally honored.  I've been having so much fun working with her designs (which are totally amazing).  This summer, DigiScrapAddict is hosting the Battle of the Creative Teams, and I am working alongside with some pretty amazing ladies.  We had our first assignment last week.  White Space.  We chose to not only use white space but also make that space white.  Pretty cool, although my LO looks more gray than white.  LOL  Here are the LOs that our team created.  We all used the same kit, Mellisa and Mellisa II with backgrounds from various other kits of Megs'.













We made it though Round one and were even named CO-MVPs for this week. So again, can you see why I'm honored?


I took Ashley's bridal portraits so I've been having a blast creating a special book for her. These two were made with Kaylee's Garden and Flairy Floss

School Year Scrapbooks - FINISHED




A friend of mine posted a link to this contest. Since we're wanting to travel to PA this summer via Southwest, I couldn't help but play along.


Lots of Layouts


I've been working getting Cayden's Spring Program video edited and creating end of year scrapbooks.  Here are the layouts I've created in the last month.  The best part of this all was the trip I took to PA to visit my grandparents and extended family.  I had LOTS of free time to work on the end of year scrapbooks!  I don't have time right now to list all credits, but I will, I promise. In the meantime, these layouts were created with products by Misty Cato, Sherri Tierney, Lliella Designs, & Flergs.                     [...]

Kindergarten Layouts


I cannot believe that there are only 8 weeks of school left.  I don't know what I'm going to do with myself or my children, but I do know that Hannah has had a great year!  And I'm thankful that I've been able to scrap her Kindergarten year.  As a parent, I promised myself to make the best effort to attend all important events/activities at Hannah's school.  And I've been able to do so (it's such a blessing).  The only big event I've missed is the Valentine's Party, but Hannah understood, and Ms. A got some great pictures of the day that I am able to scrap.  This week, I've been working on her Kindergarten Scrapbook.  I'm very pleased with the results thus far.  I've already completed some of the layouts but these are the most recent ones I've made.   These two LOs were created with Lliella Designs' kit, Chinese New Year (available at Funky Playground Designs). This has got to be one of my favorite LOs at the moment.  Photos from Groundhog's Day.  Thanks to Ms. A for taking the pictures. Who knew they'd do something THIS CUTE?  Anyway, the kit I used was Garden Fresh also by Lliella Designs.  This LO was created with Sherri Tierney's awesome kit, Get Your Groove On.  It's an oldie, but a goodie!!  These are photos from Math and Science Night at school. And this LO was created using a QP from Backyard Bugs by Karla Marano (Glitter by Flergs). These are photos from the Science Fair - Hannah's class got 2nd place in the Kindergarten Category.   And lastly, my April Desktop, which is just GORGEOUS!  Kit is Flairy Floss by Flergs as part of the BYOC at I almost forgot about the wedding LOs I made from James and Jennifer's wedding.  I used Art from the Heart by Sherri Tierney.  GORGEOUS kit, PERFECT for these photos! And some LOs from Spring Break using Pamela Donnis's Picture This! and Rise and Shine elements.   [...]

Been A While


It feels like forever since I've blogged about anything scrapping.  I'm supposed to be a designer, but I'm juts too busy to be one.  I feel bad about that and am thinking of "retiring."  We'll just have to wait and see.  I hope the next few months slow down. I have been scrapping though - for Flergs, Pamela, and at times Sherri and Allie.  Here are some of my latest LOs.  Using Deacon's Closet RELOADED by Flergs    Using Gift of Gab by Pamela Donnis Using Pin Pals by Pamela Donnis Using Nana's Secret RELOADED by Flergs   Using Picture This! by JunoDesigns and Pamela Donnis That's all!  Thanks for looking!! [...]



That's right!  I'm a Diva on Flergs' full time CT.  I harassed her enough to let me stay ;)  Anyway, I've been working my butt off with her designs, and I guess she likes my work because I'm now apart of an amazing group of ladies FULL TIME!!  Yippee!!!  Of course, with this change in my scrapping, I've having to step down from several of my wonderful designers.  I just don't have the time to scrap much anymore.  One or two evenings a week and that's it.  It's worth it; we're trying to be more active and do more stuff together as a family rather than being sedentary.  Right now the kids are playing "school" and "house" with Hannah being bother "teacher" and "mom."  She's pretty tough.  And Cayden hasn't napped, so you can imagine how this is all panning out.  Thankfully, we leave to go pick up daddy in 15 minutes.  Here are my recent layouts.  Click on them for complete credits.    These two LOs were created using X's and O's.  It has not been released yet, but it's a collab kit with Sherri Tierney and several other designers.

More Guest CT LOs


I've been totally slacking in my regular CT commitments, and I feel terrible about that, but for some reason I just can't find my groove.  Hopefully I didn't lose it for good.

In the meantime, Ms. Flergs has been rockin' the store with her new kits and so I want to show off the LOs I've created with her new stuff.

The kit I used for these next LOs is called Trouble Maker.  I had to scrap these adorable photos of my youngest nephews.  They are just sooo stinkin' cute that I couldn't help by snag these photos from Stephanie and do something with them.

And some photos from my birthday dinner.  I used Megs collab with Tangie Baxter called

17 Cherry Lane.

And another couple using Rough and Tumble RELOADED

Guest CT


This month has been completely crazy for me already.  Totally insane, but I'm finding time to scrap.

I'm attempting to do the Project 365 photo challenge which involves not only taking a photo a day, but also scrapping it.  I'm already so behind it isn't even funny.  But I'm still going to attempt it.

I'm also participating in the ADSR Season 4 with Patricia again.  We've completed the 1st week and are moving on today to Week 2.   It's already been a real challenge for us.  Ha!

And my last exciting bit of news is that I'm a Guest CT for Flergs!  I'm not only excited, but shocked!!  But I'm loving it and have already created 2 LOs using her Rough and Tumble: RELOADED.  And they are super cute LOs!!

(image) (image)

And since she's given me this amazing opportunity, I want to share with everyone that for 1 week only (although the week may almost be over) she has all her glitters on sale at 50% off.  You don't want to miss out on this sale because after the week has ended, they will be GONE forever!!!




Okay, so not really! But it is another Sweet Shoppe Designs From Our Blog to Yours. This time around, we were to take this Snow Test. Of course, since there is little to no snow here in ATX, it was interesting to answer these questions since I really don't know what I'd do.

Your Snow Test Says You're Independent


You feel like something good will happen to you in the next few days.

You love to work, especially when work is creative. You have the makings of a successful artist.

You are an independent, individualistic person. You thrive when you're doing your own thing.

Your biggest worry in your life is your health. You tend to be a bit of a hypochondriac.

When it comes time to relax, you really indulge. You are all about your favorite comforts.

It's a New Year!


Welcome to the 2nd day of 2009.  My poor Hannah doesn't understand why we haven't seen the "firelights" and said "Happy New Year!" yet. Poor girl was asleep by 9 pm on Wednesday night.  Of course, Mommy dozed on and off from 9 until midnight, only awake long enough to tell my snoring husband "Happy New Year!"  And boy did she have a meltdown when I told her it was already the new year.  So together around 6 pm last night, we yelled together, "HAPPY NEW YEAR!"  She said it's not the same.  LOL.

Of course, along with the New Year comes resolutions.  I try not to get hung up in the craziness of it all.  But this year, my resolutions are not the same as the ones I've had in the past.

Over this coming year, I hope to

  • grow closer to my LORD.  Drive into his Word and continue to learn how to be like Him. 
  • continue to love others like Jesus.
  • be the mother to my children that the LORD wants me to be.  I want to have more patience and understanding with them when it comes to every day things and I want them to see how to love others by my actions. 
  • be the wife to Stephen that I know I can be - I want our relationship to strengthen in ever ay possible.
  • lose the weight I gained with Cayden by living a healthy lifestyle.  I want my entire family to live an active and healthy lifestyle.  This is so important to me.
  • grow closer to my family and friends. I'm tired of superficial relationships.  I want each relationship I have to grow deeper.  Those that don't, are a waste of my time.

So those are my resolutions.  Pretty deep if you ask me. 

Christmas LOs


With Christmas in the past (already), I have a few LOs from our fun.  Not too many, but not just one.  I'm not finished, but I do want to share what I have done before I completely forget what I've been working on.

For full credits, click on the LOs.

So I created two calendars this year as Christmas gifts. The first was for the grandparents, starring my children. The second was for my sister-in-law, Stephanie. I created her a calendar featuring her two boys. Now that Christmas is past, I am able to share them with you!!

It's beginning to look a lot like. . . .


Christmas!!  This is one of my favorite times of year!  No, I don't love the hustle and bustle, pushing and shoving or crowds.  But I love all the smiles and friendliness this time of year brings.  I also love the meaning behind the season - the Lord came to earth as a baby boy to save the world from eternal damnation.  And I love that my kids know what Christmas is all about - not just presents. This Advent season, our church is looking at Advent from a different perspective.  We're reading John 1:1-18 instead of the story from Matthew, Mark, or Luke.  And it's really eye opening.  I never thought of John 1:1-18  as being the Christmas story, but now I do.  And the scripture verse we chose to put on our card this year is John 1:14.   Now on to the layouts that I've been working on.  I have three "Christmasey" layouts.      This LO was created using Pamela Donnis's kit, Merry and Bright.  This the first year EVER that both my kids would sit on Santa's lap together.  Hannah sat on his lap until the winter she was 2.  Cayden sat on Santa's lap his 1st Christmas and not since.  Last year,  there was no sitting with Santa.  Both kids screamed and cried.  It was mad chaos, so this photo delights me!  Santa is the magical and fun part of Christmas that helps us to remember what it was like to have Christmas as a child.  It's magical, and yes, I still believe.       This next LO was created using photos from our "Christmas Photo Shoot."  We did not go to the mall this year; we did not have Uncle Kenny take our photo."  This year, I shot the photo of the kiddos, and our dear friend, Jill, too the picture of our family.  And it's beautiful.  I just LOVE it, standing in front of the big Christmas Tree at the Ruby Ranch Lodge (where our church meets).  The photo is great, the one of the kids is perfect, and the others were just fun to shoot while trying to figure out what we were doing.  In this LO I, again, used Merry and Bright by Pamela Donnis.  This is a great Christmas kit!!     And finally, our Photo Christmas Card.  I used Christmas Time by Claudi Designs and a template I created last year.  I'm very pleased with the card.  I cannot wait to have them printed. Okay, I'm out.  I've got lots to do, including make 2 fleece tie blankets this evening.  XOXO - R [...]

Holiday Gifts & Cards


I have had little computer time this week.  In fact, I have not been home much, and when I have been at home, I've been working on gifts, Christmas cards, Jamie's wedding video, or helping out friends.  Thankful, today is a very easy day for me.  Cayden will be taking a nap shortly, and I will once again be in the office finishing up the wedding video.  I must say that it is a pretty awesome video - and much of last night was spent in tears from either being overwhelmed with emotion (watching the bride dance with mom and dad) or from laughter (watching the bride's pure country brothers dance to Lolli Lolli and Yeah, Yeah, Yeah."  HILARIOUS!!! So, next week is Thanksgiving, and the kids will be giving their teachers and principal a small gift.  We found these baskets, candles, and scarecrows on sale at 80% off at Hobby Lobby so I grabbed them.  Add some homemade pumpkin bread next week, and the gifts will be complete. Tomorrow is the Christmas Card Shoebox Swap.  I created (okay modified)two cards for this event (one for me and one for mom).  I think they are soooo cute.   And lastly, Brandi's birthday is tomorrow so I went ahead and made her this blanket (thanks to Traci's expertise from 4 years ago, this has been a pretty standard gift in my book). So although I have been working on a couple of Digital Christmas gifts, I cannot share them here due to spoiling the element of surprise, but I can share everything else I've been doing. I'm also going to be making these two desserts for our class Thanksgiving Feast of Desserts.  Found them in on the Family Fun website.  Marshmallow Pilgrim Hats Sweet Turkey Treats (not that's not my child) And we'll be completing this art project during the party (I will be gluing the pompom part on this weekend).
