Tis the season for a STS Road Trip! Ok, so I've disappeared for the past 2 months, its amazing the directions that life takes you and draws you away from the things you want to do. However, I managed to snag some time to make a paper pack for this months trip. December is here and were all frazzled about the shopping that needs done, the family that's coming in, or hustle and bustle of city life in general. Why not take a few moments, join our trip and remember a time when things were simple with this month's theme, A Country Christmas. (Clicking the preview takes you to the download page)
In case you just stumbled across this stop on our road trip or you got lost along the way here's the complete list:

Whats the first thing you think of when October rolls around? For me, its trick or treating and getting to see the smiles on all the kids faces when you hand them that piece of candy that they go out in the cold to get. Its the one night a year we let our kids take candy from strangers and they seem to get so much pleasure from it. Another thing that comes to mind.... Candy Corn. Mommy Me Time Scrapper has seemed to be able to capture both of those October memories into one with her part of the October BAK for STS. Candy Corn is full of fun and colorful papers and elements thats perfect for scrapping those Trick or Treat moments, take a look.
I had the chance to play around with the kit and made this layout:

This week on theStudio's Second Chance Contest we were given the challenge of coming up with a theme to go with the title Summer Afternoon. When I think summer I think of bright colors and wanting to spend time on the beach. Those thoughts were the inspiration for this kit. Hope you enjoy!
I decided it was time to stick my head out and joined the Next Designer Contest over at theStudio. The first color palette was made up of beautiful blues and purples that just screamed the glories of every morning from them. I love going out first thing in the morning just after the sun has started to rise and see all the pinks and purples that fill the blue skies and the sounds of the birds just waking for a new day to fill the air with their song. That lovely picture is what inspired this kit, I have it posted for free there I felt it only right to share it here too.
What's your favorite thing to see at the circus? Is it the tigers, elephants, or maybe the dancing poodles? What's your favorite thing to eat at the circus, maybe some cotton candy or popcorn?
