#40 March Desktop

Here's my March Desktop. I've been really struggling with some physical issues which is why all of my scrapping has come to a complete halt. Hopefully I will find some more focus next month to pick back up.

Mardi Party (and #33)

Misty O'Brien has a new kit coming out at Stuff to Scrap and Gingerscraps on Wednesday. It's a fabulous, fun kit called Mardi Party. It's a great kit for parties and fun scrapping! Here's the preview:

There is also a coordinating glitter style:

Here's the layout that I did with it:

Well, with school called again for tomorrow due to snow and ice, I have nothing better to do than to scrap I guess! LOL. Anyway, I'm working my way through all of the challenges at ESS and am completely bored and sick of all of the kits I have to use for them. It has to be 40% ESS designers. I have no idea how to figure that out. I mean, does it mean if I have 10 pieces on my layout including paper and photos that 40% of them have to be ESS? Or does it mean that 40% of the entire surface area has to be ESS? Who knows. So I just do all of it as ESS designers so I don't get in trouble. Ah, I am rambling because I haven't had any students to ramble at today.

This is kind of another page. It's supposed to be a desktop for my computer, but it doesn't really fit. I think I used the wrong sized template. Oh well....

Doing a little happy dance here!

I am definitely doing a happy dance here because we got a snow day today! Woot! Everyone is still in bed but I had to get up and call the sitter and my student teacher, so I'm up. While wandering around my frequent haunts, I found out that I had gotten Layout of the Day at ESS for the layout below (Snow More Fun)! Yay! I only have gotten that one other time at Gingerscraps but it was for one of my very first layouts that I did to figure out my computer program. It was a complete lift that only included my photos as original work. This one was all me (well, I used a template as that was the challenge, but I changed it all up!). Oh well, just thought I would share with anyone who happens to look here. :)

Actually, THREE Freebies this week! Woot!

I posted earlier that I would have two freebies this week, but it really is going to be THREE! The first one is here tonight. C.W. Picket has a new, really cool P365 grab bag at Stuff to Scrap. This won't be a grab bag forever so get it while you can at one low price! I had a GREAT time playing with it. I think I spent more time on that layout than I have in a long time because I was having such a great time. You get to have a modification of that layout.

Laura will have a few extra freebies on her blog this week so you should check them out!

C.W. Picket also has a fabulous 50% off coupon in the new Feb. Digi Scrap Save coupon book here.
First, here's the preview of the grab bag:

There are basic coordinating papers to go with it.
