Secret Family Recipe

Hello Scrapland!  Sorry, I’m not revealing a super scrumptious family recipe today!  I’m showing you the super cute new kit that River Rose just released!  It’s called Secret Family Recipe and has some really fun colors and elements in it.  She even made a nice template pack to go along with the kit, so that it’s easier for you to quickly jot down your recipes and put in the picture.  Here’s what I did with the kit:

Hope you like what you see!  Happy Scrapping!

Super Conductor

Hello Scrapland!  During the summer, the military gets free admission to tons of museums across the country.  Many, many children’s museums are included, including the one closest to my house!  So, I like to take the kids there a few times a year, and it’s a Great place for pictures!  So, when Pardon the Mess made this latest kit, I was super excited to get to scrapping!  Here’s a layout I made with a picture from the children’s museum:

I hope you enjoy!  Happy Scrapping!

Far Away

Hello Scrapland!  As most of you probably know, Alice and I are best friends, but we don’t live anywhere near each other because the military split us apart.  In fact, that’s why our blog is called Always Be Neighbors Designs.  Because we used to be next door neighbors and through cell phones and the internet, we keep in touch almost as if we were still neighbors.  So, when Pardon the Mess came up with this kit, I was beyond excited!  Far Away is a kit made just for people like Alice and I!  People you care about and keep in touch with, but don’t get to see very often!  Check out my layout:

Happy Scrapping everyone!

Dreaming of You

Hello Scrapland!  I’m here to show you another kit that Pardon the Mess has in her store over at Scrapable.  I had fun playing with it, and I find that it’s very versatile!  I did more of a heritage page, but there’s a bunch of glitter in the kit too, so you could easily do an elegant or love type of layout with it!  Here’s my page:


Here’s the kit preview, click it to go see it in the store…then stick around and check out the rest of her fun kits!

Sting Like A Bee

Hello Scrapland!  Today, Scraps of Ellay is releasing a kit that is has a theme about a different kind of scrapping!  Her motivation was an event where the boy she babysits gave his dad a black eye.  The kit turned out so fun and all of us Stars of Ellay found out that it’s a much needed kit by just about everyone!  Here are the layouts I made with it:

I am hosting a Scraplift Challenge…this is Alice :)

Good evening Scrapland! I am hosting a Scraplift Challenge over at Mousescrappers.com. I can’t believe I decided to host a challenge, but I am. I have another coming up later in the summer, but this is my first. It is Scraplift challenge # 19, and the layouts are due by June 19th. I have been out of commission with scrapping for awhile, but Mousescrappers has helped me get back into the fun! I have so many Disney Pictures or Disney related pictures (such as birthdays, Halloween costumes, and more) that I have been busy scrapping these. Here is a preview for the PP I am offering. Hope y’all come by and enjoy in on the fun!
