Maintence/Construction warning :)

I just wanted to give a heads up that tonight and tomorrow I will be adding a fresh look and doing some sprucing up of the blogs, website and facebook pages. 
As well as some other things like twitter/pinterest etc..

So if you pop your heads in on any of the Sweet Digi Scraps accounts.....and it looks a jumbled mess :) You know why. 

ALSO- Don't forget to stop by the facebook page to grab up part 2 of Sun Splash!
STORE CLOSING SALE!
I am closing up my shoppe at Me So Scrappy this month. May 31st will be my last day there. I have marked down everything in the shoppe $1/$2 until the remainder of the month, so now would be an awesome time to stock up on the things that were on your wish list. (As some of the items will be going away for good)
If you do not see something you were REALLY eye balling, no worries- I have just removed those to get them ready to be re-released in my new shop.
Much Love and Hugs!!

A Lil bit of the life

So yea, the 12 midnight posting became a 2:30 posting because I got the oppurtunity to nap this evening and lets just say momma needed it!! Either way.....here we go :)

So I have missed a good bit in digi land this year, and just haven't been keeping up much with it. It is bitter sweet, but more sweet than anything actually. 

At the beginning of the year I chose a word- Achieve and have pushed myself to stick by that as much as possible. By doing so I have found so many things about myself and family that I never saw before, and its been amazing to say the least. 

While I haven't exactly achieved all the goals I have set for Sweet Digi Scraps, I have done growth in many different aspects of my life. As far as singing- I am still (and more than ever) doing it. I have pushed myself hard this year in growing in the music aspect, and even took a leap of faith if you will through it. I entered in a couple bigger contests, and tried out for the Voice!!(which I will be updating on how that goes) I won a place in a site sponsored contest over at SingSnap which put me in the top 5 out of 700+ people. For those interested here is a couple of my entries that I submitted to that contest that placed me (I will warn- you will want some tissues)

As for the family life- I have become "THE BEST MOMMY EVER!" At least in my kids eyes LOL- There are still many things I lack at.....but I have grown a great bond with my children and really have finally got my priorities straight when it comes to my family. Unfortunately I had to do things that were very hard, but found in order to truly achieve the happiness with my family- It needed to be done. So its more focus on doing things with my children to really live life and enjoy them while they are young. Because we all know that it just doesn't seem to last long enough. 

They are getting so big now- The girls recently had their "graduations" and really made mommy proud. Ana brought home a perfect report card and Roxy had done some major improvements to get things back on the right track. I was even tickled pink to see what awards she brought home from her classroom ceremony- "Lucy Lips" and "Math Whiz" - What can I say...she gets the lip honestly from her momma! HAHA

Mr. Dallas is turning out to be quit the little brainiac lately and really getting into learning more and more. Already he is answering the Kindergarten questions and starting to read! Gosh they are growing super fast!

This summer break (So far) has already been chalked full of walks to the duck pond, playground, water balloon fights, chalk drawings, picnics and just all around family fun. I couldn't be happier to be a mommy. 

Alright- enough chatting ( I swear I could write novels LOL) To sum it all up, things are going awesome. Family life couldn't be better and I am just enjoying the company of my children and working towards making life so much better for us in all ways I can.

I will be posting scrap pages spuratically of all the tiny updates...like Ana and Stevie's super cute new pixie haircuts, Roxy getting her ears pierced, Bubba's new glasses, My new Pink (Yes PINK) hair :)  and all the fun times we have been having!

ALSO- Don't forget to stop by the facebook page to grab up part 2 of Sun Splash!

Winner Winner.....Chicken Diner?


Okay that was completely corny, but I am Liz after all and much of what I say normal comes out in the goof ball way :) 

I am doing two separate posts tonight because I want to keep separate the digi and personal items (plus it makes it easier for those to find which it is that they want to read)

So lets get on with it shall we...because this means there is some designing in my immediate future coming. 
The drawing details stated that not ONLY would you win the two kits coming out June 1st, but also a custom made kit of your dreams. So I went through and used random.org to generate a numbered list of all those comments that included their dream kit wish. 
 Used the random.org number generator to pick one of the lucky 13:

And TADDA! We got a winner!!! Congratulations Nancy!!
I came back to the blog to check the comments and I couldn't be more excited to work on a 50's diner themed kit! I actually did one WAAAAAAY back when I first started designing (which I retired long ago ;) But it will be nice to do a switch up to something super fun!
So email me at sweetdigiscraps (at) yahoo (dot) com and I will get you the links to the new kits PLUS get the details of things you want to see in your custom kit and I'll get it started :) (Look for a June 8th release of it everyone!)


here is just a couple extra big peeks from the talented sweeties Danna and Nikki

Lets Catch Up Shall We, with a Gift

I am warning in advance that this blog post will be rather lengthy. I haven't blogged in a good while, and for good reasons :) I will try to spread things out this weekend (update wise) - That way you aren't stuck here reading a 20 page novel.

So let's catch up design wise first shall we?

Design wise- I have been working in my spare time on a few new ideas/projects and have drummed up some exciting new things to be coming this year. I took some time to really PLAY- I mean I always played in PS and PSP, but never really took time to sit down and explore all the options that were available to me. Let me just say this......once you take a trip down that road-  you can get lost forever! LOL But I actually took some time to learn all the things I had been doing....better. Plus I kind of had to in order to make the full switch over from using my outdated versions (CS3 and PSP 11) - Where did all these new functions and sliders and filters come from???? hahaha Well there really isn't much different, but there are more possibilities for sure.

I am updated at least for the next month or two, until they release CS100000 or PSP2mil- Gracious! The wonders of technology- we keep moving so fast that everything becomes outdated in a matter of minutes it seems anymore.
But the "exploring" time only means that there are some amazing new Sweet Digi Scraps to come!

I am closing up my shoppe at Me So Scrappy this month. It is rather sad actually as I had planned on being there for good....Not really big on moving places. But sometimes things just don't work out, and you have to move on. (I have learned this lesson in life plenty this year) and this is something I must do.
So May 31st will be my last day there. I have marked down everything in the shoppe $1/$2 until the remainder of the month, so now would be an awesome time to stock up on the things that were on your wish list. (As some of the items will be going away for good)
If you do not see something you were REALLY eye balling, no worries- I have just removed those to get them ready to be re-released in my new shop.

That also means that there are no new releases THIS week.....but I brought you a goodie none the less. It is part 1, as part 2 will be posted on the facebook page later this weekend: 
So I hope you enjoy today's gift: 



I have worked on several new releases that will be coming June 1st- I KNOW Such a long wait....But I figured it was best to release them when my new shop opens as well :)
So I am ready to tease you all.....



BUT- Hey why not please while I am at it.
Leave a comment below letting me know what you are DYING to see come out Sweet Digi Scraps style....and Sunday evening at 8 pm EST I will put the names in the randomizer and pick one lucky person to not ONLY have their dream design created BUT Also win the above posted goodies before they are released :) YAY!

I think I have rambled enough for the evening- Much Love to you all- See you tomorrow with some more updating, layouts and hopefully enjoy a laugh or two with you!
}{ugs!
