Oh wow. It has definitely been a long time since I have posted. I have been working on a ton of projects I need to share. This holiday season is keeping me busy. I still have a giveaway for my 100th post and I am such a slacker. Hopefully I can get it up the first part of December.
Today I wanted to share my 10 layouts from Scrapbooksteals.com's Mid-Week Mojo Citrine Series.
In September, my 2nd oldest daughter begged me to decorate for Halloween. She continued to beg and beg each day. I am not really a Halloween person, but I gave in. I busted out my Silhouette and Authentique's Glowing collection that I got for a steal from Scrapbooksteals.com.
I hopped over to the Silhouette Online store and bought some files for decorations:
I signed up to do the mini album swap for the Scrapbooksteals.com 2013 Retreat. The retreat is something that i looks forward to ever year because I get to see so many of my scrappy friends from all over. If you ever get the chance to go, don't miss out. It is so much fun and totally worth it!
Now back to the album. I received the "Say Cheese" collection to use on a Kiwi Lane DT project. I have never been to Disneyland and have no plans to go in the near future so I decided a mini for the swap.
It is an 8x8 with Cinch chipboard covers, American Crafts Black cardstock for the pages, "Say Cheese" collection, and bound with a Cinch.
I love to scrapbook, but really struggle with card making. Today's steal on Scrapbooksteals.com- My Mind's Eye Titles, Quotes & Die Cuts Mega Pack- is the absolute best thing for me to make cards with. I was super excited when Melodee asked me to participate in the blog hop because I have been eyeing this Mega Pack when I have seen it before and have never been too sure about it. Well, let me just say that is packed full of so much goodness that you could easily use it for a million different things.
If you checked out the steal, you noticed that this pack is just huge. My first step was to separate all the pieces into their various MME lines. Once that was done, I grabbed my card blanks and small stack and got to work.
With just what was included in the pack, card blanks and inks, I was able to create all these cards. Easiest card making ever!
I am excited to add this bunch of cards to my stash so I can quite stressing about running out. If you still aren't sure about the awesomeness of this kit, here is what I have left:
There is still plenty left to make lots and lots of more cards.

It is sad to think that this is my final blog hop with Kiwi Lane as a Design Team member. I have greatly enjoyed my time with them. As sad as it is, I am really excited for the incoming Design Team. There such awesome talent in the new ladies and I am so excited to see all their new ideas and projects. Be sure to stick around Kiwi Lane because it is going to be awesome!
Now that all that sentimental stuff is out of the way, on to the Blog Hop! For my layout, I used some Strips, Sunnybrook Lane, Journey, and Tiny Brackets, all of which are lots of fun.
The Journey templates were perfect in so many ways to document our fun family mini road trip.
The suitcase template is perfect for journaling. The possibilities with these templates are endless. Be sure to come back later this month to see how I use these templates in a different way.
Thanks for stopping by today! Head on Over to Tammy's blog for the next stop on the hop and be sure to leave a comment because one lucky commenter from one of the blogs will win this awesome swag prize from Simple Stories (winner will be announced on the Kiwi Blog on Thursday, Sept. 12th):
