"When the Moon hits your eyes like a big Pizza Pie..."
It's that time of year when your thoughts turn to love and Valentine's Day.

I was able to work as a Guest Creative Team Member with her on this kit.

It's a fun collection inspired by Disney's "Ratatouille".
It's filled with lots of love, Paris, and food. Yum!!

Hello January

Okay, Okay, I know January is half over, but I bet you haven't Scrapbooked it yet!


This kit has a very cool feeling with all the shades of blue. 
I love the snowflakes and you have to check out that 'lil snowman.
Each packet is only $1 or you can purchase the bundle for $5

Of course I wanted play off the blues and add a contrasting color of the red dirt that I live near.
 We love to escape the cold snowy days at home and head just a little south and play in the red dirt/hills.

So...how are your January goals going? Are you able to capture and create memories or catch up on past ones?  You should see what I've got going. I'll have to snap some pics and post about it. However, I have printed more than 50 of the pages I created last year...it's a start. The kids have been enjoying looking at them, and some of the pages are bringing back OLD memories, since it has been so long. :)


Winter Goodness

Have you been enjoying the Winter Season?
Now with Christmas celebrations out of the way,
what do you do to enjoy the remainder of the season?

I live in an area with plenty of snow and it is great when we can get out and enjoy it.

Nibbles Skribbles has been busy making some wonderful WINTERTIME kits. 

First off, we have
with a wedding in Nibbles' family, this is the perfect kit.
This kit is on special this week at theStudio.

I LOVE the beautiful snowflakes that are in the kit. 
I also LOVE cutting Snowflakes out. Here is a page showcasing some of my creations.

Up next, is
this is Nibbles Skribbles addition to the Group Therapy collection at DigiScraps Addict.
Each month, the design team will work with the same theme and palette to create a collection of amazing products! They will be selling them for $1.79 each, or $1.29 during the first weeks!
You can Mix and Match from 14 designers and more than 100 products to create your kit your way!

I took a Snowy Cozy take on this kit and made a page of 'Cozy' Snowcaves!
  (eh, whatever....I prefer the warm indoors for nights in the winter)

Make yourself a great resolution/goal this year, along with me, and lets get our memories scraped and printed. I would love to see some of your creations as well.
Follow along with me at ColorCountryScraps on facebook.

Last year (2013) I made roughly 124 pages. I have only printed about 5 of those.
So MY GOAL is to keep scrapping, beating that number...
and to PRINT those pages and get them in the book for the kids/family to enjoy.

Hope you are ready for a fresh new year and perhaps a fresh start.
