New kit: Play Park plus QP freebie

I am loving this new kit. It is bold, bright, and fun. It was inspired by those wonderful play dates, when moms and kids come together, and everyone plays together well. Sure the play together part usually only lasts a few minutes, but you just give them a hug and send them back to the play ground. (Or as my boys have always called it, the play park.)

Here is a layout I did during a speed scrap over at Pretty Scrappy. If you've never done a speed scrap, you should really give it a try. I love having a finished page in about an hour!


And here is the alpha I used. I totally love it. It is just the right amount of grunge for almost any style layout. (And thank you to everyone who helped me come up with a name for it.)

And last but certainly not least, I created a quick page for you based on my speed scrap layout.



Thank you so much for stopping by my blog. I hope that you have a great day! (ssssshhhh! August is a special month for our family, and I will be having special sales all month long. Come back to get the scoop on it.) Be blessed, because you are a blessing!!!

Thank you girls for helping me out. I need you to help me again. I wanted to send out a thank you to those of you who participated. But, I didn't get anyone's email address. Please email me and I will send you a coupon and a freebie link to my new alpha. ginnytallent at gmail dot com

Thanks again and sorry for the confusion.

I need your help, please

Sorry I've been so quiet lately. I got sucked into the world of Farm Town, lol. I finally made it back to reality and have found out all that "farming" has turned my brain to mush. I recently finished this great new alpha and cannot for the life of me come up with a catchy-yet-discriptive name for it. I am calling on you to help me. Here is the preview:


I really do LOVE it, but am just plain stuck for a name. Here's the deal. If you help me by posting a name suggestion, I will choose one person at random to receive this alpha for FREE. And of course, if I use the name you suggested, you will get the alpha FREE as well as a discount code for one of my stores. So, leave me some comments and name ideas here. I am going to a family reunion tomorrow and will be back late Saturday. I will give you until Sunday evening to post a comment with a name suggestion. Then Monday, I will reveal the name I have choosen as well as the winners. Thank so much for your help.

It's the 16th, again!! PrettyScrappy $ Day

Sorry for the late announcement. It's time for Pretty Scrappy's monthly dollar day sale. On the 16th of each month, Pretty Scrappy's designers choose a collection of designs for you to pick up for just a buck. It's a great deal. Here are previews of my products you can find today only for $1.

My newest venture, doodling! It is so relaxing! I have always avoided doodling, but recently decided I need to just get over it. My doodles may never be Mary Englebreit, but they will always be mine and part of who I am. I am so looking forward to watching these doodles grow and develop as my skill and confidence grows. I so enjoy these first few sets, because they are simple, fun, whimsical and innocent.

And here is an awesome sample I designed to complement my Denim Dreamer kit. It has been a huge favorite. So, I thought I would offer it in this special one day/one dollar sale.

And finally, I love this alpha. It is rugged and worn, reminding me of my favorite pair of jeans. It is one of my very first alphas, but certainly not lacking in quality or character.

Wow!!! And that is just a few of the products. Fly on over to Pretty Scrappy and pick up a few bargins. And don't forget to mark your calendar for the 16th of each month. More goodies are sure to come your way.
