Better Together and Always Yours from TSSA

Wow, they go together so well - the BETTER TOGETHER TEMPLATES and ALWAYS YOURS from Throwing Some Scraps Around (Digital Designs by Jodi).

I used the BETTER TOGETHER TEMPLATES and ALWAYS YOURS to create a layout with one of my favourite photos of my grandson James and his Mum - our daughter Susan.

I just love this photo which was taken on a family holiday to the Isle of Wight.

Jodi's little grandson Wyatt needs an operation to have his adenoids and tonsils removed and tubes inserted in his ears. When Susan was little she had a similar operation - in her case the operation was done on the NHS and didn't cost us anything. The only problem is that this operation for Wyatt will cost $1500 and they need to raise the funds.

So Jodi and her good friend Dana - who designs under the name Made by Keuntje are having a Benefit Sale for Wyatt. Everything in their stores will be $1.00 each until 23 February.

Here are the links to their shops:

So go on over and grab yourself some bargains. You will find lots more information on Jodi and Dana's blogs and perhaps grab yourself some freebies.

Be Mine Templates from Brenian Designs

Brenian Designs has a new set of BE MINE TEMPLATES which are just right for scrapping all of your romantic and Valentine memories.

I used the templates with Brenian's MY TRUE LOVE and a photo of myself and my husband taken at our daughter's wedding.


My next layout using the templates was created with PURPLE PASSION from Brenian Designs and photos of Susan's two bridesmaids Charlie and Natalie together with their husbands.

Around We Go Templates by Throwing Some Scraps Around

Well, Jodi of Throwing Some Scraps Around has done it again with a marvellous set of AROUND WE GO TEMPLATES.

Here is the layout I made using AROUND WE GO and a photo of my grandson James opening his Christmas Presents.

I used COLD FEET SEASON from Made by Keuntje which you can find in here ETSY store.

I just loved the colours in COLD FEET SEASON and I especially liked the string of Christmas lights which I used on the bottom of the photo frames.

My friend Lisa of The Cherry on Top has some really great freebies on her blog and I used her frame made with WINTER WONDERLAND from Aimee Harrison Designs with a photo of my grandson Tyler.

Celebration by Leigh Penrod Digital Designs

Leigh Penrod has a brand new CELEBRATION BUNDLE in her store at GoDigitalScrapbooking.

I used CELEBRATION to create my layout using a photo of my grandson James and his Mum taken on our train ride with Santa. He was so thrilled with the train jigsaw puzzle that he received from Santa.

I used one of the papers from the CELEBRATION KIT together with one of the GLITTER PAPERS to make an upper case alpha which I used for the HO HO HO on my layout.

You can download it HERE.

Hope you enjoy using it.

Steadfast by Throwing Some Scraps Around

My friend Jodi of Throwing Some Scraps Around has created a fabulous new line called STEADFAST which you can find in her ETSY Store.

I made two layouts using STEADFAST. The first one features a photo of my husband with his parents and a photo of his parents taken at Land's End in 1998. The sentiments I used from the kit are just so true.

The second layout uses a photo of me and my grandson James taken at Ruislip Lido. For this layout I also used the THIS WAY TEMPLATES from Throwing Some Scraps Around.

You can find coordinating freebies for STEADFAST on Jodi's Blog and the TSSA Facebook Fan Page.
