Hi-d-ho neighbors....another fantabulous day here in California...the weather was perfect...the children were nice and somewhat tame...the hubby was spoiling me and my mommy came up to spend the night. Life is good. I hope it is for all of you as well.

To help make sure that it is...Kim Smith has a little treat for you...sure to delight.

"This is a little sampler of my new kit “Midnight” soon to be released in my boutique at SDK. Watch out for another taste of “Midnight” in one of the SDK Newsletters during June, and you can find another sampler at my personal blog here:"

click here to download...make sure to tell Kim thank you....really makes a gal feel good, kwim;)

Tip of they day: For funky titles, try using the papers from your kit (or a combination of kits) and fill in the letters from a thick font. For added splash, add tiny embellishments to some of the letters, or add a stroke in a coordinating or contrasting color around your letters.

hugs and happy scrapping!

Look for a matching freebie on Kim's Blog this weekend and the store kit at SDK in the next few days.

Don't forget about Tracy's Mixed Bag Blog Challenge...scroll down to see it. It is fun and you get a great freebie just for playing!!

kim's tip=Like scrapping on the small side? Just because the sketch/template is made for 12x12 layouts doesn't mean you are limited to scrapping in just that size. Resize your sketch/template to whatever size you scrap in and get those memories preserved!

May Mixed Bag Challenge ONe it is monday in the states. the scrapping community (both paper and digital) celebrated a wild and crazy weekend of celebrating...all due to National Scrapbooking Day on Saturday. I know a lot of people went to chats and sales and had a wonderful time. Can't wait to see the layouts that come from all the shopping!

Also...we have new releases here at SDK...and at 40% off...make sure to swing by!

TracyB decided to move her mixed bag challenge on to the blog, so make sure to play along. The prize this month matches the supa mega kit that the team releases during the month...and all for free! Do you want a peek at the prize??? do you get this fun little prize???? You must complete two little challenges...each time you do, you get a piece of the prize.

First challenge for May: Scraplift yourself. Pick two of your layouts and lift parts of them to create a brand new layout. You can use the colors from one, the photo placement of another, etc. Anything like that. When your layout is done, post it in this gallery (impromptu challenge gallery at SDK). In the description...give me links to the two layouts you chose to lift. Then come back here (to this post)and post a link to your new layout.

Can't wait to see what you come up with. Happy scrapping!!

You don't want to miss this folks...should be a fabulous time!!!

Sandy's last World's largest cookie fact:

Ingredients for the World's Biggest Chocolate Chip Cookie:

12,200 lbs. of Unbleached Flour
6,525 lbs. of Unsalted Butter
6,000 lbs. of Dark Chocolate Chunks (WOW! That's over 10 million individual chunks!)
5,000 lbs. of Granulated Sugar
3,370 lbs. of Dark Brown Sugar
30,000 Whole Eggs
184 lbs. of Salt
79 lbs. Baking Soda
10 gallons of Pure Vanilla


Kim's tip for the day:

Do you have a ton of photos from a photo shoot or an event that you just don't know what to do with? Try a collage. Pick 1 photo to be the main focus and arrange all the others around it in smaller sizes. Don't want the collage to take up the entire page? Block out a square using your rulers, guides and grids, and you'll have plenty of space for all of your other page embellishments.

hugs and happy scrapping
