LIVE LAUGH LOVE: OCTOBER - now available at Scraps-N-Pieces

Message from TRUE NORTH SCRAPS:  Live Laugh Love: October is a beautiful kit that is kicking off a series of kits. This month's kit is such a beautiful seasonal kit,  but an untypical color palette of peaches, rusts and greens. I liked it when I first decided on it, but now that the kit is finished and I've seen the LOs my team has made using it, I LOVE it! I think you will agree with me when you see the LOs you make with it too.

This is another large kit - there are 60 elements and 24 papers. You are definitely getting your money's worth with this kit! And remember, it's just the start of things to come. Once you collect all of the series, you will have a huge collection! It's currently on sale.

Let's see The North Stars gorgeous layouts!

Here's an extra freebie that Janet created for you. I include this freebie in with the Facebook ones too. But if you do not do Facebook click on the preview or here to go to Janet's blog.

Here's what the Newsletter subscribers got in their email today.

Be sure to join me for a speed scrap tonight at Scraps N Pieces to start off our SNP anniversary / DSD weekend. I'm giving away No Rulz Add-On to everyone who completes the speed scrap on time. I hope to see you there!!
And here is what the prize looks like:

Scraps-N-Pieces 2nd Anniversary and DSD weekend activities!

It's the second anniversary at SNP and it's DSD weekend! Can I get a WHOOT?!! They have planned a super fun weekend for you! The customers and designers are some of the best people in digi and we are so very excited to have each of you actively involved in our community! You have no idea how you've touched our lives and how much we enjoy chatting with you and looking at your layouts. There is something wonderful about SNP. It's the friendships we create. It's the way our stories intertwine with those of the people we've never met in real life. It's people from all over the world uniting in this wonderful way that helps us to capture those small moments in time that make up the stories of our lives. Nowhere else can you find such an awesome group of people who work and create so closely to build such an amazing community for all of us to feel at home in.
This weekend we are celebrating each and every one of you be{You}tiful people. The challenges and chats are centered around getting to know you better. We hope you'll join us this weekend as we strengthen our friendships and our community. I'm sure there will be a lot of laughter and of course they've created a Be{You}tiful collection of goodies for you that you won't want to miss. There is a fabulous facebook hop where you can collect 25 be{You}tiful templates and they wouldn't dare celebrate their anniversary or DSD without an awesome store wide sale! There will be 3 live events each day (with the exception of Thursday when there will be only 1) where we can meet in the chat room and get a little crazy (or a lot crazy for some of us...but I'm not naming any names!). There will be prizes awarded at each live event so be sure to be there on time! We'll also have 2 challenges for you each day where you can earn the pieces to a HUGE collab (We're talking 96 Papers, 82 Journal Cards, 190 Ellies and a full alpha!!)! You'll have all weekend to complete the challenges so don't stress about getting them done quickly. Kick back with us and enjoy your weekend! Happy Anniversary SNP and Happy DSD weekend to all of you!

Hello!  I'm here on FRIDAY with my latest FRIDAY FREEBIE for you  (it's really Friday - the last two "FRIDAY FREEBIES" posted on Thursdays since I was out of town!)

Today's freebie was made with Jen C Designs MY STORY OCTOBER

I love the rich, jewel tones that Jen used in this kit ... I am completely enamored by the Fall color palette ... wish we got more of that fabulous color here in Texas!  This year, the color of fall in Texas is ... GREEN!  It is still amazingly green here near the end of October.  Typically, we should have been brown since about August!  But not this year!  

But, getting back to the kit ... you can find Jen's beautiful kit at

I've done a couple of layouts using MY STORY OCTOBER

I created the next layout for the Twisted Pixel challenge at Gotta Pixel in October.

Oh, my ... you can definitely see my "favorite" papers in these two layouts, huh?

Today's freebie is the flower cluster in my first layout!  I hope you will enjoy it!

What the heck is Art Journaling you say?

It’s whatever YOU want it to be! An art journal could be a book like a diary. Your own work of arts that’s just for you. It's not for family or friends. Your art journal can be a record of your daily thoughts, favorite quotes or songs, places to travel, your dreams, a place where you jot down your ideas, goals, bucket lists any thing that you'd like to keep in a book. You can make it look however you want, pretty, comic style or just messy. It’s the best “scrap therapy” out there!

If you are new to the concept of art journaling, basically the rule is there are no rules! It is a great way to express yourself, to let your inner artist escape.

I have recently discovered art journaling and thought it was time to make a digi art journaling kit called No Rulz.  The kit has 24 papers and they are absolutely beautiful! There is an alpha (26 letters only) and 68 elements as well. It is on sale for 30% off until Oct 25.
Here's what the talented North Stars have created.

Up and Coming Events
Be sure to join me for a speed scrap at Scraps N Pieces to sound off National Digital Scrapping weekend. I'm giving away No Rulz Add On to everyone who completes the speed scrap on time.
I hope to see you there!!
Before you go, a few of my North Stars have few freebies for you. 
Just click on the previews to go to their blogs

Have a great weekend and Happy Scrapping!
