These, layouts are brought to you by Bella Gypsy. :-) Well, by me, but using some of BG's newest items. Hands down, still, one of my favorite designers! What did I use? Well...

This super cute and colorful kit. I have one more layout in my head that I will be using this it for. See that word art, "I'm not tired" yeah...I hear that about every night and it needs scrapping! I also used...

this beauty right here. I really wish that I could have made that banner work for the layout I had in my head. I think I will have to come back and make another layout with this. Just for that banner...and maybe that word art with the house on it. Pretty much sums up my life! By the way, there is another kit I didn't use this week. How can you go wrong with scrapping and bacon?!? You can't! You can check out the ones showed above and everything else, HERE.


Check out the kit and collection, HERE!

I did mention rainbows, right? Well, this kit is packed full of all those lovely colors and a little something else. I have a boy. We haven't gotten into the loom thing. I know it is super popular though. Now, if we were talking Ninja Turtles or Star Wars, I would have to spend a solid hour narrowing the photos down. lol.  Check out...

 

Woven Rainbow by A-Manda Creation. How fun is this kit?!? Bright colors and awesome patterns. I had a blast using this layout. I thought a b&w photo would stand out against all this color.


Anyway, that is it for right now. I have a ton more new releases to show you tomorrow. Also a freebie! woo hoo! So, stay tuned

Monkey & Crunchy Leaves

Good Saturday morning!! I am sitting here on my bed watching College Game Day. Gosh, I love football!! I love that my hubby and I can sit together, yell together, and have fun together watching football. Kiddo is starting to enjoy himself. Creating a monster, I'm sure.

I didn't come to talk about football, really though. I came over to show you some Digilious Designs! I will get right to it. Not only do I have football today, I have to clean. Always with the cleaning!!


You can check this kit out (and collection) HERE. This isn't one of my better layouts. I'll go ahead and say it. I really wasn't feeling scrapping this day. I needed to get it done though. I am thinking that I am going to re-do Bug's baby book. Scrapping this page caused me to come to that decision. I am really excited about re-scrapping those pages.



I didn't get the chance to scrap with these kits, yet. So many Autumn kits coming my way. You know how I like that!! A solo kit by Digilious Designs and a Double Scoop with her and Heather Roseli. eeek! I cannot wait for more kits like this to come my way and HALLOWEEN! These are such pretty kits! You can check out Woodland Whispers HERE and this fall...HERE.

Have a great rest of your weekend. I'll be back next week. Don't forget the freebie on yesterday's post!

New Release Friday, Topped with a FREEBIE!!

Goooood Friday morning, everyone!! Seriously cannot tell you how happy I am to have the weekend upon us. Not that this week been terrible. Just long. Being sick for 3 weeks finally got to me this week. Not to mention lovely women things to top it off. Sigh. However, I am ready for this weekend. To have lots of fun with my guys....IN THIS BEAUTIFUL WEATHER!!

As I mentioned, it's Friday. For the most part, that means new releases in the digital scrapbooking world. I get super excited about new releases. It is like waiting for a cool sale all week and it finally happening. I hop from store to store window shopping and buying. So, here are a few to make your window shopping and buying a bit easier!! :-)


purchase at: GS | SNP

Let's start with a bit of celebrating. Did I mention that I turned 31 at the start of September? No? Well, it's true. I am now 31 years old. whaaaat?!? So, when I saw Ponytail Designs' newest kit, I knew exactly what I wanted to scrap. Me!! :-) I have been scrapping a birthday layout to myself every year since I've been scrapping.


Purchase HERE

Guys!! It is actually starting to feel like Autumn around here. I am so excited. I know. I know. I've talked about Autumn before. I just love it though!! I really love this wood-grain background paper that is in Shmooangel's newst kit. It was perfect for scrapping some of my favorite photos of Bug. 


Purchase HERE 

Shhhheee's back!! I was on Cornelia's team the last time she was designing. I am such a huge fan of her fun and funky templates. Your layouts will stand OUT with these!! And...and...and...she is designing kits now too!! Look at this kit!!! It screams happy!

Purchase HERE

This kit was perfect for me at this stage in my life. CHANGE IS GOOD! October 1st will be one year since I walked away from a job of 8 years. It was so scary. Little did I know, change IS good....great actually. This is a statement kit! Got something to say? Perfect!! (not to mention, like all of BG's kits), you can use them for anything!

Hmmm...I mentioned something about a freebie, right? You deserve it after making it through my rambling. Sheesh. I can talk! :-) Here you go. Remember all the way up to the 1st kit I showed? This goes along with it. Have fun!!

Dreaming of Autumn & a FREEBIE!

Good Monday morning!! I thought I would stop by this morning and show you some super designs along with perking your Monday up with a freebie! I know something for free always perks me up. :-)

I mentioned the other day that I love Autumn. It's true. I do! I also enjoy a great Fall kit. I get super excited when I see a really pretty kit. So, imagine how excited I was when I got my hands on this one!! If you are not familiar with Ooh La La Designs, let me introduce you. This is a designer that packs her kits FULL of elements and paper. Probably the most elements per kit I've seen from a designer. I always have a hard time widdling down what I want to scrap with. lol. I just want to jam my layouts full of all the elements.

Falling Slowly by Ooh La la Designs. 


Here it is in all La'Shawn glory. ;-)


To go a different part of my life...sleeping. I've mentioned before that I LOVE to sleep. My guys are not really different. I love to watch them to sleep. Bug is a lot like his Daddy. It shows so much when they sleep. I've walked into a room before and they were in the bed, sprawlled out, and their knees up in the air. 

This isn't a new kit, but I think if you have kids or sleep yourself, this is a great kit. You know, if you are like me and scrap everything. I just love the soft colors and the elements are super cute! Makes me really want to pull out photos of Bug sleeping as a baby. 

Dreamy by Ponytail Designs



Cute, right?!? I didn't go with a baby photo. I had to go with one that I took the other night. Sleeping like 100% boy. 

I did mention a freebie, right? I'll get right to it. Here is a bit of word art using Dreamy. If you hate doing title work (like I do), this will help you with your Dreamy layouts. I hope you like it. You can click the image or HERE to download your freebie. 


Have a great Monday and rest of your week. I should be back later this week with some more kits and layouts.

An Apple a Day & Potty-time!

Good morning. Well, nearly afternoon. I stopped by today to show you some new designs from Digilious Designs. They are super cute & you don't want to miss out on these!! They are 20% off today.



I had these photos from years ago. The apple was about as big as his noggin. He loves to do things on his own though. 


I'm a Big Kid Now by Libby Pritchett & Digilious Designs


Bug might hate me for this later in life. If you know me, you know that I think most everything in life is worth being scrapped. Worth being remember. That is just how I function. I am the one that carries a camera around all the time. I am taking photos when no one else is. 
So, this is one of those times. 


That's it for today. I have more releases to show you at a later time. Along with that freebie that I promised. I have a lot to do today though. Clean, grocery shop, football, a birthday party, and spend time with my family. So, scrapping will have to take a backseat today.

It's Fall Ya'll!!

WELCOME BACK TO SHAWN BEAR SCRAPS!!
Yep, I am back to blogging here. I've taken a step back (for a bit) from my personal blog and picked up scrapping again. Boy, I couldn't be happier. I missed scrapping so much!! I've joined a few more creative teams. They are on the sidebar over there.

I also have to say that Autumn is one of my most favorite scrapping times of the year. It might have something to do with the fact that I just love Autumn. However, the kits are more beautiful to me and I just have to scrap with them all. However, just to start out, I will show you a few of them that I have been scrapping with this past week.

FESTI-FALL by Bella Gypsy Designs

Of course, here is my layout: 

Harvest & Hayrides by Digilious Designs

In all it's La'Shawn glory. :-) 

So, there you go. A few layouts so far this Autumn. Although, it isn't really Autumn feeling here in Georgia. We are still hitting near 90 degree days. The evenings have this slight cool feeling to them though. Don't think that the warmer weather has stopped my from inundating my life with all things pumpkin. I would drink/eat pumpkin flavored stuff year round. We might also have some of our Halloween decorations up too. "Hi, my name is La'Shawn. I am Bug's mom and he is obsessed with Halloween!" lol .

That is all for today. I will be back here soon with some more layouts and a FREEBIE!! Whaaat?!

Text! Don't Call!


I know. It is soooo, rude. However, I just left a job (of nearly 8 years) of 12 hours on the phone. I do not like talking on the phone. So, someone better be dying if they call me! Unless you are my MeeMaw. She doesnt know how to text. I will answer if she calls. ;-) 

I just knew what I had to scrap with Bella Gypsy's newest kit/collection. 

There is a BUNDLE and COLLECTION as well. 

Here is my page:


Have a Merry Christmas everyone!
