The Whole Life Together by Valentina's Creations

Valentina has just released the most beautiful dreamy kit The Whole Life Together.  It's just so perfect for your Valentine, Wedding, and any special photos.

I love the paper roses and pearl strings.  And today I can try out a new Italian phrase I've learnt - mi piace.

Have a marvelous Monday

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

NEW GAB by Valentina's Creations

The Story of My Family is Valentina's contribution to the January GAB at Scrapbook Bytes.  There's 12 different packs from Accents, Clusters, Elements, Papers, Stacked Papers and Word Art and they're all priced at $1 excepting for the Elements at $2.  If you only buy the Elements and Papers, you get 101 elements and 27 papers for $3.  Bargain.  It's an amazing kit to record your family history with a beautiful family tree and gorgeous frames.  Here's 2 LO's I made.  In the first one I used the paper and element packs.

In this one I used stacked papers, clusters and elements

Hope you have a fantastic 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.
