The Exciting Day is almost here...

My guest spot on WM[squared] Designs' Creative Team begins on Tuesday!!!  I am SO EXCITED!!!!  Click the link on the title to check out her blog and her awesome products... tell her Cara sent you.  ;)

I'm Inspired!

I got some great news from a friend that has inspired me (but I can't yet share what it is).  You'll have to stay tuned to see what news I'm talking about. Anyway, I am so happy and loving life right now -- and I can't wait to do some scrapping to express it. 

Have a great day, everybody!

Happy Hump Day!

I've been so swamped that I haven't had time to scrap.  What is it with real life, anyway?  I got a TON of new stuff when celebrating Digital Scrapbooking Day and haven't even unzipped them all.  I look forward to getting to scrap again... hopefully before December!  At least I know I'll get to then, because I'm guesting for the month at WM[squared] Designs. I'm counting down the days!!!!  You can visit her blog by clicking here.

Happy Digital Scrapbooking Day from Cara Olson Designs!

Greetings!!!  And happy Digital Scrapbooking Day.  It's a feeding frenzy at the digital scrapbooking supply sites I visit - so if you're in the market for some digi-scrap things, I suggest visiting Scrap Matters or your favorite site to make a purchase.  If you're just getting started in digital scrapbooking, I suggest buying a little something today or tomorrow since everything is at such a great discount.  And remember, you can always download my FREEBIE Christmas paper kit too, to help get you started.  My digi-partner, Maria, is also offering some great FREEBIE papers.  Check out her blog, Scrappily-Ever-After

Scrap...scrap...scrap away everyone! 

Christmas Papers

I've uploaded and linked a FREEBIE for you - 10 Christmas papers!!  Click on the "Download from 4Shared" links to the right.  Soon my partner in scrappiness, Maria at Scrappily Ever After will have additional coordinating papers and embellies.  Enjoy!  Thanks for visiting my blog!

Happy Halloween!!

Happy Halloween, everyone!  Tonight is the annual Defiance Lion's Club Halloween Parade, but I think Big D is still too little to participate.  I'm not sure he'd sit still long enough!  So, since we didn't get to Granny's for trick-or-treat on Thursday, we'll be heading there tonight.  I'll post Halloween Desings within the next couple days.  Have a safe and Happy Halloween!!

A recent scrapbook page

I recently put this page together after going to Sauder Village's Fall at the Farm.  It was such fun!  This page was done during a Speed Scrap at scrapmatters.com. 

Damsels-in-De-Stress Designs and Cara Olson Designs creating collab kits

Maria (Damsels in Distress Designs) and Cara (Cara Olson Designs) are currently creating some new and very cute digital scrapbooking kits.  Stay tuned to see a sneak peek and find out how to get yours FREE!

I'm a Guest Designer for WM[squared] Designs in December

I'm super excited!!!  I'll be using Wendy's kits and designing layouts for her in December!  Cool, right?  She's got some really awesome things and I can't wait to get my hands on them and start creating.  WOW!

Working on my graphics...

Well, I guess as a designer, I'd better start designing for my own blog, shouldn't I?  That's what's on my agenda for today.  For now, I'm "borowing" the skeleton of my colleague/friend/awesome inspiration Maria.  Thanks, M!!  Time for lunch then I'll get crackin'.
