Gotta Grab It...and Liz's mojo is BACK!!!!!

I don't even know where to start, so bear with me!
The GP birthday celebration has been a blast, and we are only in the second week!

Our designers have decided on top of the birthday sales, DSD and all the fabulous prizes you can win participating in the challenges, they would still put on a fabulous Gotta Grab It Event!

These are the funky new creations that Liz has added for her take on the unique winter color scheme the designers worked with this month! A new kit for all those Diva's we all have in our lives!


This was the participation prize for the Truth or Dare Chat with Liz this past week! Is that FABULOUS or what! We had a blast, but you can still get this must have! Divatude  is a great deal now for only $1 during the event! Liz also made a new set of templates that have cute ways to "tuck away" your photo's in fun ways!

Sweet Inspirations..Cover Up!

This is a fantastic way to make your spending dollar spread around a bit. These will be great "go to templates",and again also for only $1!!!! That is only $.25 each! What a great deal!

Make sure you go by the galleries for some more inspiration. Liz herself was even able to meet her own challenges she set during the chat and is busy posting some layouts herself! Gotta see them!

Have you heard?

Poor Blog...been so neglected, but has been such a busy summer so far and here it is already August. Can you believe it? I can' less then a month, school will be started again for all thoe with children at home. I'll bet mom's all over the Us are happy about that in more ways then one. When I had kids at home, August seemed to me they began getting bored and almost looked forward to going back and being with their friends.....but I might of been mistaken. But not likely! ahahaha

SO? Have you heard the exciting news? The official announcement has been made....Liz of Sweet Digi Scraps is now co-owner of Gotta Pixel. I am tickled for Liz, my designer hero, what an exciting adventure she is on...such a great opportunity for her....but OMG! how we miss her being around all the time and her kits. I know she is busy, but it is kind of a slow summer without her around creating for all her CT's. But we are adjusting ok....just not happy. LOL In the long run, it might be a super good transaction for this miniture whirlwind. She is like a seriously dangerous Full force Tornado with energy, multi-tasking her whole day with Designing, her family, a new baby, her dabbling with her singing and still having time to manage a website for us all to go and utilize. She is truly something our Liz. This might actually free up some of her busy day & more time with her family. Ok so what was I thinking? Most likely just hoping.....ahahahaha!

But just incase you have not seen the official announcement, go to this link and see it for yourself. Make sure you bookmark the spot after you read it because Liz has gotten together with another designer from Gotta Pixel and is giving pieces of her new kit for free as a daily download. Might as well sign up for the newsletter so you will not mistaken forget to log on and miss one beautiful piece of this completely smart looking BACK TO SCHOOL kit.

So, go to Gotta Pixel and see for yourself, how this dabbling designer, has quickly made it to the bigtop, because to all her Sweeties, she absolutely ROCKS our world with her talent. Have a great day & Happy Scrappin!!

Three Things Challenge

ok I have decided to go ahead with an idea for another chance for you win a $10 coupon for a shopping spree in Sweet Digi Scraps store of your choice. Above is my inspirational page for this Challenge. Your title must contain the words Three Things....and you must post your layouts in the DigiScrapAddict Gallery and adding a link to a thread so all your pages can be kept track of during the contest which will run thru the month of June and July 1rst will be when the contest winner will be announced.

Here is the thread for the rules for Three Things Challenge.

Here are the Rules:
1. The title for your page must include words Three Things
2. Must give credits to the designer or designers kit used for your page or it will not be included. I prefer to see Sweet Dig Scraps material but it is not critical. Kits from DigiScrapAddicts are very much welcomed.
3. Must link your page from the DSA Gallery to a thread posted at the site so I can keep track of all your pages.
4. All pages Must include the following,
3 papers, 3 embellishments, 3 pictures, all different and must be of 3 things you adore or cherish, 3 things you can't live without, 3 things that inspire you, or 3 things you love to do. But all pictures are to be different, and 3 things of your own creations or alterations of the kit or materials you use.
5. You must have fun with this page!

As you see, I used 3 papers, 3 embellishments 3 pictures 3 of my own embellishments altered from the kit I used which happened to be Floating Wonders from Sweet Digi Scraps...
Good Luck to all who enter and Happy Scrappin!!

Welcome to the SDS CT Blog

Here is a page using a newer kit called Miss Mae which can be found in ACOT. I just spent this last weekend with my baby girl, who lives 4 hours away & is expecting in July. Her first child and my 7th grandchild. I so wanted another girl, but we know it will be a boy, and I couldn't want it more. I shall spend two weeks with her as she gets prepared for motherhood and it will be a blessing in more ways then one. I so can't wait to hold this little one in my arms and meet him for the first time. It will be the greatest day in my life, well ok almost, the greatest day, next to having all my precious kids and grandkids happy healthy and mine. Am I proud? You bet your butt I is.....and will display them all in good time if you have not seen my pages before now.

Hello everyone and Welcome to the Creative Sweeties Blog. I am happy to be seeing this link so we Sweeties can be able to post pages using Liz's (Sweet DigiScraps) latest kits as she creates them. I could not stand to see this spot empty anymore, and so the boss gave me the go ahead to post and fill the void. Incase you do not know who I am, I am Rylea and I very proudly post pages using Sweet~Digi~Scraps kits because I personally think they are top quality materials and I so love her wicked eye on the color scheme's she uses and her ideas for the themes. Also, if you are a fan at all, you will also know & or have noticed, most of her kits can be blended together for many uses. The more you collect, the bigger your designing possibilities grow. I know I have created many cards for my family, Hybrid odds & ends using her materials as well, only to receive some wonderful happy comments on how beautifully they thought they was and how they turned out. I contribute most of this credit to Liz's products, even though I do the work to show them off, its her kits who make them all happy. It is pretty easy designing, for us Sweeties, when you have a Designer with good taste like we do using this designers kits. I am so happy & blessed to be part of her all of her Sweeties are. Be on the look out here for our creations being posted regularly, for each of us will be posting here in hopes of giving you all kinds of inspirational ideas using all her beautiful kits.

Her kits are found in A Cherry on Top and Gotta Pixel for a quick viewing of all her wonderful products. You won't be sorry if you use the links highlighted above and check them out.

Thank You and Happy Scrappin!

OOOH! but shhhhhhh. be sure to come back soon. I shall have a surprise for you in celebration of Sweet DigiScraps celebrating her 2nd soon as I can figure out what I can give away in this celebration.
