Let's Get Festive - Pixelscrapper December Blog Train

     The holiday season is upon us. Our neighbourhood held it's annual spaghetti dinner with Santa. All the kids had a great time and the parents got a good laugh from some of the gift requests.One young lady asked for a BMW while another wants a baby brother! In my family, we celebrate St. Nicholas day on December 19th, and I am trying to teach my littlest one a traditional song. He is of course fighting me at every turn. This will be a real test of which one of us is more stubborn. My money is on him right now!

     This month's blog train will hopefully inspire some very festive pages. I took my inspiration this month from vintage wall papers. I think the colours that were chosen for this month will work really well with any winter pages. They will certainly add a pop of colour to the mostly monochromatic scenery outside my window right now.

Pixelscrapper November blog train. Thankful Harvest

     So I can't believe it's November already. Halloween last night was a rainy affair, and only a few brave goblins arrived at our door. Naturally that means the teenagers are having candy for breakfast! My work schedule has been really busy this past month, so I'm glad I was able to put a few things together for this blog train early. I had hoped to do a few more things but time was not on my side.
     Since November 11 is Remembrance Day in Canada, I have also included a Timeline image for Facebook this month. Please use it if you like it. If others are interested in it please send them here to get it as well.

     As usual, all the wonderfully generous contributors have put together great items for you to download. You can see all the other contributions at Pixelscrapper here.

Paper clips

A few days ago I got a request from a Pixelscrapper member asking if I could make some of the paper clips from my Teenage Life kit in different colours. She thought that the hands and feet would work well with baby pages and wanted some pinks and blues. I thought that others might like them as well so here they are.

Thankful Harvest

I'm a little bit ahead of the game this month for the November blog train at Pixelscrapper. The theme is a bit of a stretch for me as my family has never been big on celebrating Thanksgiving. In Canada Thanksgiving happens tomorrow so we usually have more of the fall colours rather than the muted pre winter pallet for November. Also around my house we tend not to focus so much on one day of thanksgiving and try to make it a part of everyday life. All that being said, I think that I have made a valiant effort. Here are the previews.
The download links will be available November 1st.

 I would also like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for the very kind comments on my first blog train contribution last month. I'm so very glad that everyone is enjoying it!

That teenage life add on

One of my boys pointed out that I hadn't included the title tag that I had made for my preview. He thought it should be available for download since it's on the preview and also thought that I should have included a few more of the word arts that I had decided to leave out of the kit. So here it is! My first add on to my first kit. I feel like I need an LOL here. I never thought I would be putting out more for this kit right away. I guess I will have to start running all my submissions past the teenagers for approval before I post them!

I'm also working on making my previews more professional looking.

Pixelscrapper Blogtrain - That Teenage Life

Well It's October and as promised, here is my first ever contribution to the Pixelscrapper blogtrain. There are so many talented people at this forum that it was a little bit daunting to even decide to show them what I was working on. This theme hits home for me because I am  mother of sons. My oldest is 20 and my youngest is 2 1/2, well on his way to being a "threenager" The support I received from everyone participating this month really made me feel like this was something I could accomplish. After a whole lot of work I came up with 12 papers and a bunch of elements that I think are quite masculine but could still be used for teenagers in general. There are 7 different fasteners in all the pallet colours, 6 journal cards, and 6 wordarts. I hope you enjoy this kit and come back soon for more freebies.
Also don't forget to visit all the other talented designers on the Pixelscrapper blogtrain Here. Happy Scrapping!

Welcome to Bohemian Scrapsody

    Welcome to the very first post in this blog. I decided to start this page to show some of my recent attempts at designing. I am working on some things for the October Pixelscrapper blog train. This will be my first contribution to a blog train and I'm kinda nervous about how it will go over, but in the meantime here is a sneek peek. This is a page based on the quickpage I will be adding to my mini kit.

     I hope you like what you see so far. Come back October 1st for the full mini kit "That teenage life"
