In 1926, Milne introduces us to a delightful teddy bear, owned by his son Christopher Robin Milne, and several other of Christopher's toys. You meet Winnie The Pooh, Piglet, Eeyore, Kanga, Roo, Owl and Rabbit. Tigger is introduced in the second volume of stories called The House At Pooh Corner in 1928. It's just delightful reading the adventures of these friends in the Hundred Acre Wood. Today you can watch many TV shows and movies featuring these characters, as well as meet them at Disney parks.

Vintage Dreams by LDrag Designs

I have been a bad blogger lately. But now that summer is here and I am done teaching for awhile, I am really going to try to be better. I got a guest position on Lina's CT, and I couldn't be more thrilled. The first kit that I'm getting to work with is just being released at ScrapMatters. It's called Vintage Dreams and it is simply gorgeous!

You are definitely going to want the bundle, but the pieces are also all sold separately.

I made this page from my daughter's last dance competition. I love this photo. I had snapped it quickly of them backstage, and it turned out very dark since the lighting was so poor. But I ran a bunch of actions on it and I love how it turned out. I used Lina's great stacked papers and cluster frames.

Grab a snack with Kellybell Designs!

Does talking about food make you hungry? How about seeing photos of delicious entrees and desserts? They really get you drooling! Disney has the best snacks in and around the parks. Starting with a classic Mickey bar or diving into a cold and refreshing Dole Whip, it's always a nice break to stop and have a snack to recharge a moment in between rides. What's your favorite snack? Could it be those prehistoric turkey legs to gnaw on? Or maybe just a cold drink and box of popcorn. Whatever your snack passion may be, you probably have lots of photos of your family taking a snack break. Today, Kelly is announcing the perfect kit to scrap all those snack photos. It's called....

Gosh, just looking at all the yummy goodies in this kit makes your mouth water. Mmmmmm! Check out all the snack elements including Mickey bar, turkey leg, popcorn, lollipop, drinks, Popsicle, ice cream cone, Dole Whip, and candies. You'll also find some flairs, flowers, stitching, ribbons, scatters, buttons and bows. 'Snacktastic!' is full of 15 delicious papers in yummy patterns and a fantastic alpha.

For topping your yummy layouts, here are 6 different word art titles for you.

To start your layouts, you can choose one of 4 different paper stacks. These really become addicting because they are so easy to use. It's an instant page ready to go!

How about a great set of page borders and clustered frames? You can grab these for scrapping your pages with Mickey bars, turkey legs, Dole Whips and much more.

All of Kelly's new releases can be found at for 25% off this weekend only. Why wait? Head on over to Kelly's store right now and grab these yummy creations.

With so many Disney snacks to choose from, you can really have some fun scrapping with this kit. Here's a page that I made with 'Snacktastic!'.


You're supposed to eat dessert after dinner. And you have to wait to get your freebies until after reading the entire blog post. Well, the waiting is over. Kelly's CT has created some delicious treats for you. So grab a snack to munch on as you head to JamieP's Blog, October's Blog and Roxana's Blog. Leave them some love along the way. Enjoy and happy scrapping!
