December 2016 Scraps N Pieces Blog Train

Wow, can you believe we soon will be entering into a new year? I cannot believe how fast Christmas has snuck up on me! Quick post as I just returned home from out of town this afternoon! Spent 12 glorious days at my sister's house so that I could go to my grand niece and grand nephews' holiday programs! First up was a piano recital for Miss Emma (almost 10) and Master Lucas (5); then followed Master Lucas' Christmas school program, Master Jackson's (3) Christmas pre-school program and finally last night was Miss Emma's Christmas school program. I have to say that, of course, they were all absolutely wonderful. They sang songs complete with choreography...and all were quite exuberant in their performances! Nothing better than precious children singing Christmas carols! Soon it will be Christmas (and my birthday, yes it is on the 25th!) and I am certainly not ready, still sewing doll clothes....and a couple aprons for gifts!

So without further delay, this month a made a solid paper kit. It was all I could put together since during the time I was gone I only got on the computer three was a very busy time. I must say the colors for this month are just beautiful! And don't forget, some of the designers may make coordinating kits that are available at Scraps N Pieces. You can go to the store and you will find a category for the Blog Train Coordinating Kits. Here is a preview of the train:
This is what I did:

See you next month...and don't forget let me know in the comments if there is something you would like in the next train!

Finally, wishing all of you a Very Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah or Happy Holidays that you may celebrate!
Hoping for a Happy New Year for all!

Scraps N' Pieces November 2016 Blog Train

Hi everyone! I have to tell you I cannot believe we are already in November....where has this year gone? This month many designers were inspired by the color palette to design a winterey kit! Well, I decided to do a fun alphabet for you all. And of course what did I use but my favorite pattern of all time....a plaid! And I added a bit of glitter and gold so I hope you like it! Also check out the Blog Train Coordinating Kits in the Scraps N' Pieces store as some of the designers will have full kits using the same color palette for sale! Oh and they have added a new challenge at the Scraps N' Pieces forum where you can get points for using the blog train kits for a layout...and if you buy a designer's kit that coordinates you get extra points. You can find the thread for November here. Happy Scrapping!

Here is a look at the train offerings:
And here is my gift to you - hope you like it:
This month because it is so big I am offering a couple download options - a full download and three smaller downloads if you wish. 
Full direct download link here
Broken into three parts you will find:

October 2016 Scraps N' Pieces Blog Train

Oh my goodness, better a little late than never....I am so sorry, between computer and auto issues I almost forgot to post my Blog Train mini this morning. I usually set it up early but had planned to do it and then ended up at the dealer. Let's just say it wasn't cheap! Oh well, that is all part of life!

The colors on this train were pretty gorgeous! Rich and subtle all at the same time. Here is the sample screen of what was submitted.
Here is what I have for you, I hope you like it:
Grab it on this direct download link.
I usually wait until just a few days before the deadline to include things that are different that others submit. Let me know if there is something you would like to see next time.
I am last on the train this month but just in case you need to check back from along the way, here's the list of sites to visit:

Wow, for October Ponytails Designs Offers Three New Bundles - You Can't Go Wrong!

Crazy Little Man is all about those funny, quirky, crazy boys!  This one is dedicated to all those little guys with a curious mind and a hilarious sense of humor. Well, I have several grand nephews and it is always fun to find just the right kit to show them off! You can pick up the bundle at both Gingerscraps and Scraps N' Pieces.
Here's a peek:
 These little guys love playing in big cardboard their Dad added a door and some windows - they had great fun until it went to the paper recycle bin!

 Now let's turn to the fall. The days are growing cooler and the ground is littered with the gorgeous reds, yellows, and oranges of the falling leaves.  Grab your rake because there’s work to be done.  Pile up those leaves and clean up the yard (but be sure to have a little jump in the leaf pile first!)

You can get Rake in the Smiles at Scraps N' Pieces - these are part of the Bits N Pieces so you can grab each part from the store for the first week at a great price, after that you can get it all bundled up. Natasha also made a couple freebies that you can grab on her blog.
 This one is from our pumpkin patch visit in 2015. I also used Spring Fling 
Vol 1Templates to do both of my layouts.

The WonderFall Bundle was designed for the Buffet at Gingerscraps.  Cool, crisp mornings and sunny, warm afternoons… autumn is upon us!  The leaves are a splendour of reds, oranges, and yellows which delight the eye.  Welcome Wonder-Fall!
I loved this so much that I actually could not help but do two layouts. This little guy just melts my heart!
 And who doesn't like Daddy to not pull them around with their pumpkins on a cart!
 Have a wonderful October!

Dem Bones by Ponytails Designs

Do you love dinosaurs and everything about them? Well, my guess is that you have taken the kids to all things dinosaur! This summer I went to Legoland with my niece and her family. We had a wonderful time, though exhausting for me! One of the kids' favorite rides was the Coastersaurus and I was able to capture a picture of them on the roller coaster...little blurry but it was perfect to highlight this great kit! You can pick up Dem Bones Bundle by Ponytails Designs at the Scraps N Pieces store!
Here is what I did with it along with using Spring Fling Vol 4:
Hope you are having a great day!
