I've been asked by my family in Bulgaria to post my newest pages so here they are.
Also some super exciting new happened this weekend in regard to my digi scrapping. First I applied to be on another creative team called Tootsie's 2 :) This is a team of two designers at SSD, Manda Bean and Robin Carlton. I applied and was accepted so I am a part of their new creative team. I have already made two pages for them but I can't post them yet because this are new kits and haven't been released yet.
The second exciting news is I was invited by Kristin Cronin- Barrow who is my favorite designer of all times to be on her creative team. I didn't apply, she just send me an invitation. This really made my day/week/year :) Here are the pages.


The next 2 are with kits by Kristin Cronin-Barrow




In this page I used a kit called tubby time by Melissa Bennett

So what are some of the things that my household does that are eco-friendly since yesterday was Earth Day. One of the things that we do is when we go shopping we use reusable bags. I have two big bags that are made of recycled material. It also helps that the grocery stores here don't give you free plastic bags so you have to bring your own anyway. Another thing we do is we try not to use our car whenever possible. It's a little bit harder here in Lodz than it was in Sczcecin because we are at the edge of the city but we still try. We have a couple of little grocery stores withing a walking distance so we try to walk whenever we can.
Our washing machine and lights around the house are also energy efficient so that's another thing.
The dryer is not but in the summer I try to dry our clothes outside more to save energy. I hope I am helping Earth in someway :)
Here some new layouts.

FOBTY

From Our Blog to Yours is one of the challenges I do at Sweet Shop Designs to get a point. So today's challenge was to write about things I haven't been able to give up inspite of the hard economy.
So the first thing is shopping which is good because it helps the economy, right :). Well there is certain things you can't go without like toys and new clothes. Just kidding, I am not buying too many toys for the girls anymore. For one thing we are full of toys, sometimes I feel like our house is being taken over by them :) And they are expensive but I still buy them some every once in while. I bought the girls a couple of pet shop toys for Easter. About clothes it's really hard to resist cute baby clothes for Alexis but the temptation is not as big here as in the US even though they do have H&M and they have some adorable stuff.
And of course scrapbook kits. This temptation is so easy to give in to because you buy everything on line and it's just click, click, click so I really need to watch myself on that. But it does help that I am on a couple of creative teams now so that gives me plenty to work with.
Some new layouts:

Easter Candy

Here is another little quiz I took for a challenge at SSD to earn a point. I have to link my blog to theirs to get the point. Here is a link to the quiz and my result

You Are an Easter Egg



You're so sweet, you don't need candy. You much prefer the taste of artificial coloring instead.
