April Layout and a New Freebie - Allison

Sorry I have been neglecting my blog. I have been very busy creating pages for Ladybug Graphix at Digital Scrap Garden, Triplett Designs at KJoi Studios and Amanda Dykan of Purple Paper Flower in addition to my duties as a Studio Diva at KJoi Studios.

Here’s just a few of my favorite layouts that I have created in April.

All the pages have been created with kits from the wonderful designers that I create for.

Now for a special treat – I was going to save this for something coming in May, but I couldn’t wait to get it out there. It’s a new little kit – Allison. It is named after my step-daughter. Chris went and took photos of her track practice and I just had to create something special to go with the photos.
Here a page I created with the kit:

Here's a preview:

Download Papers here and Elements here.

If you create any pages be sure to drop me a note so that I may see your creation.

Be sure to stop by in early May - Kjoi Studios has something very special planned and I'm participating (that means FREEBIES for you!!
