Two New Kits at The Digichick

I'm so lucky that I could work with 2 new kits that released today.

The first by LouCee Creations is a beautiful project 365 kit in her Reminiscence series.  Reminiscence February is dedicated to the month of love and I LOVE the fact that it's in non-traditional colours.

I tried something different with this kit and although I'm still coming to grips with more "arty" style pages, I thinks this is not too bad an attempt.

And then Valentina's Creations has a beautiful Spring/Easter kit "The First Air of the Morning".  This kit has so many possibilities.  Fantasy scenes, slightly vintage and more modern - every style of scrapper will find something in this kit.  And it's available in a bundle with accent, border, cluster, journal card, a hybrid project and some wonderful stamp packs.

I created a little scene with my friend Jenni's gorgeous daughter and her oh so cute grandbaby Mia.

Nel Mio Profondo by Valentina's Creations

I really need to learn to speak Italian.  Valentina's Creations has the most gorgeous new kit called Nel Mio Profondo that's dedicated to the month of love and her husband.  The name has such a delicious ring to it that I had to Google a translation and it came up as "In my deep", so probably Deep In Me or as Profondo would suggest Profoundly Deep In me.  And the contents of this kit is just as delicious as the name.  Beautiful and romantic papers, stunning colours and gorgeous elements.

Katia and I played dress up with the little ones and because Jayden got some fairy wings, Logan also wanted wings and I got him angel wings.  Our own little cupid boy to go with the kit.  LOL

Have a great day

Dollar Days and A Beautiful World

Our summer holidays in South Africa are almost over and things are slowly but surely getting back to "normal".  Most of our schools will be re-opening next week and then everything will be back on track.  I love the Festive Season but really dislike that the shops are too full and that you cannot find parking anywhere.  After six weeks I'm also looking forward to getting my days back to myself.  I LOVE my family and friends but I'm going through an incredibly creative spurt at the moment and all I want is computer time.  LOL.  And that being said, I just got a message from a dear friend that reads "The beauty of life is established when you wake up and realize that people who truly care never fail to REMEMBER you."  Sort of makes me feel a bit selfish now.

OK, on to the good stuff.  Don't you just love scrapping goodies that are a $1 only.  Pixels & Co is having a month of Dollar Days and there's some really fantastic goodies in the shop.  Kim B has already released the Retrospect Mini and Retrospect Alpha.  These items will be available for $1 for the whole month of January.

Here's my LO using the mini, the alpha and some date bits that will be released a bit later in the month

I just love how clean and fresh this looks.

And then I have to show you this beauty by Valentina's Creations.  A Beautiful World is a stunning fantasy kit with gorgeous elements that makes you feel as if you've stepped right into a story book and Valentina even includes elements with 3D shadows to make it easier to get the right effect.  I made 2 pages with my precious Jayden.  One a fantasy page and one traditional.

I wish you all a Beautiful Day.
