Featured Layouts

I scrapped! This month’s PMP Challenge Template was calling my name. I have been dying to scrap with it all month and finally had a chance this afternoon because I am a big fat procrastinator who left re-ordering her contact lenses until she was already wearing the VERY LAST pair which was a very bad idea. So now I am contact lens-less and since I can’t workout wearing glasses (I just can’t) and I literally can’t see a thing without my glasses, I had a little extra time this afternoon to get this done.

This page is a tale of how I outwitted a pair of very determined but not so clever Mourning Doves who decided the mint plant in my balcony planter box was the ideal spot to build a nest. One morning they just appeared. One sat it’s big bird butt right in the middle my plant while the other went out looking for twigs. They compiled an impressive heap of twiggery in just one night but I didn’t want bird babies living on my balcony so when they left, I tossed the twigs and fluffed up my flattened plant.

By the next morning they’d returned and set up shop again. I tossed the twigs again and fluffed up my flattened plant. Undeterred, by the next morning they were back again with a new heap. I tossed and fluffed. They returned. Toss, fluff. Return. You get the picture. It was clear the birds were poised to persevere. I had no choice. I would have to outsmart them.

I swapped the planter box with the mint for an empty one four boxes down. I didn’t think it would work, after all birds are supposed to have some kind of crazy internal GPS system. How else do they get to Florida for the winter? The chances of moving the planter down 12 inches probably wouldn’t bamboozle them but it was worth a shot. As an act of bird kindness I placed all the twigs they had gathered into the empty planter so they could take them to build a new nest. I waited with anticipation.

They returned the next day right to the spot where the nest should have been. They looked down into the empty planter, looked directly at one another in confusion, down into the empty planter again and flew off never to return again.


Game. Set. Match.

Easter is almost here! Time to get crafting. I’m getting some AMAZING (if I do say so myself….and I do) new Easter designs ready for you but I before I debut this years kit I thought we could take a stroll down memory lane and take a peek at some amazing (no, seriously these are amazing) layouts and crafts that the team created to get your Easter scrapping mojo in gear. If you missed out on any of these kits they (along with a ton of other kits, elements and printables) are 30% off now until Sat. Mar. 30 2013 (midnight EST).

Easter kits are so much fun to design. Maybe it’s because I’m Jewish and it’s all a big novelty to me…or maybe it’s just because everyone loves jellybeans and bunny rabbits.  This kit has a lot of general spring themed papers and elements as well so you can use it for more than just your Easter memories and personally I have become very fond of the super tall alphabet set in this kit. I even made it in a few more colours but I have been using them so much lately I’m starting to think it might be time for even more colours!

As I was snooping through the gallery over the weekend I pulled a pile of Easter pages for your viewing pleasure. Click to view in gallery with full credits. The pages below were all created using mostly the Easter Blossom kit (above).
