Scrap Idol Blog Train

Hello and welcome to my blog!! Let's talk about some cool things going on at SUN, then I'll give you a freebie!!
First, I hope you came from Stolen Moments blog. If you came from DigiFree or somewhere else, go there to start!

So SUN has been down for most of August due to a server upgrade. This means that SUN is super fast now!!! While we were down, some great things happened:
1. New designers: We have a bunch of new designers at SUN!! These girls are amazing! Some have their stores up already, some do not. Check back in the store though to see all of their awesome designs!
2. New challenges: Check out The Race Track for some changes and additions to our challenges. As the friendly challenge coordinator, I can tell you that I think these changes will be great!!
3. Scrap Idol: We are hosting Scrap Idol this month!! So, what is it? Check here for all the details, but pretty much we just want you to do lots of LOs and we'll give you prizes. I have designed something for every single level! That's a lot of designing for me. I hope you all join and help us make our gallery the busiest and best around!

So, you want a freebie? ok. I made some photomasks for you to have. I hope you enjoy them! Next you will be going to jaye's blog (I love jaye- she's awesome!)

Holidays for Heroes

Thanks for joining the CFH blog hop! If you don't know what I am talking about, please click here!

Many of you know that I am a digital scrapbooker. I do not like the mess or finality of paper scrapping...digi is clean (it's all on my comp) and I have an undo button! That being said, I am a crafter at heart. I love to get my hands dirty making something to give to someone. I have been able to combine these 2 loves with hybrid cardmaking. I take my digital supplies that are oh, so yummy and print them to use with traditional scrapping supplies to make cards.

I am not prolific at it. Have a 20 month old means not having a lot of crafting time. However, I keep at it for Cards for Heroes ( I love this site. They take handmade blank cards and send them to our troops serving abroad to send home to family. I have been telling as many people as I can about this site so they get as many cards as my mouth can send them LOL.

Why does this hold a special place in my heart? My little sister is serving in Kuwait right now and I miss her terribly. Sure I get to email or chat, but not everyone can.

The holiday season is fast approaching. For CFH, the holiday season ends November 1st when holiday cards need to be to them. It's early because the cards need to be sent across the ocean twice before Christmas (once to the solidier and back to the US). Please take some time to send some Christmas cards (or any cards) to this very worthy cause.

Now....look what I made:

This card has 2 special things about it. One is it uses all digital supplies (MZ Hope from Studio Ziska and Studio mgl available at that I printed. The second is those supplies are non- Christmas themed.

I challenge you to use non-Christmas themed supplies to make a Christmas card. It really isn't as hard as you think. Paper piecing works wonders.

If you leave a comment, I will choose a few people to receive some digital goodies. If you've never digitally scrapbooked before, now will be your chance. If you are a paper scrapper through and through, you can still print the supplies to be used. It really is perfect for everyone!

Now where do you go next? Well, head on over to Laurie J's blog to keep going!

Some really great things and a freebie!

Wow! I've been a bad blogger!

We watched the Superbowl at my parents' house. It was so cute to see my nephew and my son together! Since Ryan is only 5 months older than Dominick and running around, it was fun to see them. Since then, Dominick has decided he needs to walk and/or run everywhere! It is so funny. I guess he needed to see how it was done! LOL I have some great pics I can't wait to scrap.

My sister got her wedding photos back as well! My goodness she is beautiful! I now have more than 400 photos to scrap and I can't wait!!

What is new in digi-land?

A new QP Olympics featuring Black Tie Affair from Designz by Kristi and Amanda Kay:

Check it out and join us!!

Also, check out our forum for our weekly challenges and speed scrap! Join us if you can!

From some Sunshine Girls who have hearts of gold:

This is a charity kit for Fairytale Studios aka Mellisa who was in a terrible car accident. I bought it- it really is a great cause- and it is jammed packed with yummyness! If you can spare the $5, I am telling you it is a GREAT deal!!!

ok- as I sit here and write this Dominick (13 months) is "driving" his car vrooooooom! How do they know how to do that? Is it genetic? LOL Sorry, random thought!

Bannerwoman has some great new styles available! Check these out- they are awesome!!

ok- last but not least. I am part of an amazing team at Polka Dot Plum! These 2 ladies are incredibly talented and their CT is as well! Enjoy this QP from Sensory Overload. If you want more, you should start here. Click on the image to download!

Check tomorrow at Misty's blog!
