A Freebie, a CT call & a makeover



So sorry, but this link has expired, look for it on sale here.


Hey everyone, how are you today? We went on a spur-of-the-moment picnic with DS's best little buddy today to the park. It was, to me, the reason that we sacrifice so that I can stay home with my kids. It was a beautiful day, the kids were running around being toddlers and I was able to make all that happen and be there to enjoy it. I am so blessed to be able to just be a mommy right now, and I know that won't always be the case, so I think that makes me more appreciative of the time I have with them now. And appreciative of the time it gives me to create your newest freebie during their naptime! Another fun template for you, and this one comes with some instructions on how to use the clipping masks that come with this template. Please feel free to contact me if you have any trouble. I also got our Spring Break weekly layout down with it already, too.



I am also putting out my first Creative Team (CT) call, and I'd love for you to consider applying. I'm looking for a few good scrappers who want to to play with my kits and help get the Sweet Tomato word out there into Scrapland. For those who don't know, being on a creative team allows you free access to my collection to use in your personal layouts. In return, you post them in galleries, showing off my designs and your layout and put in links to buy those products in the description if the gallery allows that. I encourage any scrappers, new or experienced, to come give it a try as I am one totally laid-back momma designer who really wants to create a team/family atmosphere with some other cool scrappers. Click on the picture to get a larger view.



And finally, I'd love your opinion of my new Blog makeover. I'm still working on a few details like sidebar titles and changing the fonts for my post titles, but I finally got the feel I was looking for in my logo, a kind of New Orleans cafe on a lazy humid afternoon...preferably sipping a cup of iced tea and eating a decadent dessert.

Thanks-I love multi-photo layout (can never choose just one photo). This is a great template!

MemoryKeeper said...

BTW, what is the font for your reading selection? I just LOVE IT!

Thanks!

I like the brickwork in the back on the sides. I found it a little distracting to have the brick underneath the words on the top center. But I love the look otherwise.

Can't wait to play with the template! Hopefully I can get stuff submitted for the CT call.
