Big City Blog Train

I loved this color scheme so much that I made it a super top priority!!

The STS blog train this month is called Big City. I hate to do this to y'all since I know everybody has issues with 4shared, but my Dropbox is being finicky, so it's this or nothing at the moment.
Here is the list of other bloggers on the train:

New Pages!

 The above page is using Missy's kit called My Hero. You can but it here.
 This page was made using a whole bunch of kits from August's LDS blog train "Armor of God."

And THIS kit was from Mommyish. It was a Facebook Freebie, although I don't know if it still is available!

So worth it. And changing it up.

Hey look! This post is not about digiscrapping.  Go figure!!! So- I don't know if any of my readers (do I have regular readers?) remember my holiday thing- where I pick a holiday each year and make/buy decorations all year for it..... Anyway- the first year was Halloween, the next year was Fourth of July, and I've pretty much done horrible at it since. I pulled out the Halloween decor this week (it's only half up) and put away the 4th of July stuff (don't judge) and I was reminded how so very WORTH it this little game of mine is! So instead of sticking to a year, I want to just pick a holiday and have a checklist. Each holiday gets a set amount of things. If I make other stuff besides that, great!!! So here's the list.

Each holiday needs
a wreath (or a door hanger)
a pennant banner
a scentsy or gold canyon warmer
subway art
basket and basket fillers
wall hanging
handmade piece of art by me
something to hang on the doorknob
vase and filler

Time for truth- I lost my tablecloth for Halloween and never did get one for 4th of July. Better work on that. I've also never had a decent basket filler. And I don't have 4th of July subway art printed. I have some waiting on my computer, but that doesn't really count, does it?

In addition to these, I have some fun other stuff. I'll take some pictures tomorrow of the new stuff. Until then, here are old pictures of the old stuff.

Sock Basket

STS Color Challenge. I did my kit for a page I have in mind! Also- all the drawings are done by me!

First, the reason I made this kit was to go along with these cute pics of my baby girl. I hope you can tell she's a girl with all the blues and greens.

Click the main preview to automatic download. ATTN: Apparently I'm generating too much traffic at dropbox, so it will be down for a few days. Please download from 4shared HERE. Sorry 'bout that! And please leave some love (since I don't have a counter)

I'm late! I'm late!

Here are a couple freebies I made using the two kits Missy made for blog trains.

First one is for the Blog Train Blog. It's called Inspire Me. The kit was crazy adorable. I made a page AND a freebie. Download Missy's kit on her blog here.

My freebie is already formatted as an 8.5x11 JPG, so just right click and save as. Hope you enjoy it. And remember, if you worry about using lots of color ink, check your local newspaper office- chances are they print color copies for cheap!!

Oh, here is the page I did as well.

The next blog train Missy participated in is the STS RoadTrip. I'm bummed I missed the boat this time, but life happens. 2 kids started school. Hubby, did, too, and kid #3 was tested for a different preschool. OH well. Hopefully next month.

The theme for this month was Back To School. Missy's kit is HERE.

 This one is a .png  Again, right click, save as. Originally I wanted to make a full set of these, but alas....

Here is the page I did. Not my favorite, but that might be because her hair in this is driving me CRAZY!
