What happens in Vegas… well, you know ..

… stays in Vegas

We all know that famous saying.. ‘what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas..‘ the good thing though, is that wonderful things can happen in Vegas too.

We had a wonderful three days in Vegas at the end of 2014 and, even though we are not gamblers, we loved seeing the strip, that it looked EXACTLY like it did in the movies and that, at times, we could imagine ourselves in a number of different countries whilst never leaving the strip!

Kim is a more traditional scrapper and her layouts show that digital can work just as well, if not better, than paper scrapping.

2017 – Keep up to date with this wall calendar template

Here’s a scary thought… next month is December, the very last month of the year and then we roll right into 2017! I don’t know about you guys but I have to have a calendar on my fridge to keep track of all my family’s goings and comings. Some people use a diary, we use a wall calendar!

I was all set to get my Jan/Feb/March calendars done and put on the fridge and… I didn’t have one! So, I headed straight over to my design buddy… my computer… and here is the result, my 2017 Wall Calendar Templates. I hope you get as much use out of these templates as I will!

Each template comes in .psd/.png/.tiff and PAGE formats for ease of use. Included is a 2017 cover page which will be useful if you turn your calendar into a gift for someone special.

Note: The shadows behind the photos spots are elongated cast shadows that add a different dimension to your photos.

Autumn Splendor… showing off the beauty of Novembers Buffet

WOW, it is November 1, how crazy is THAT! The Northern Hemisphere is in the middle of autumn and we, well.. it is supposed to be the middle of spring but, well frankly, I am still wearing winter clothes and NOT happy about that!

To celebrate the start of November we have a public holiday here today for a…horse race… yep, you read that correct… a horse race! The Melbourne Cup is a very famous race, apparently, lol, and the it is called ‘the race that stops a nation’. Seriously, the whole country comes to a stand still at around 3ish every first Tuesday of November, to watch/listen to the race. We lucky ducks who live in Melbourne… get the day off!

Am I complaining? Nosireebob! I am enjoying the day with the family… cleaning out the sheds, getting rid of junk and catching up on household chores we have long neglected… hmmmm…. think maybe a day at work would be a better idea, lol!

To cheer us all up, this month the Buffet at GingerScraps has the most beautiful colour palette and, even though we are heading into summer down here, I thoroughly enjoyed putting this little beauty together and came up with the Autumn Splendor set of products which you can find right here.

You can purchase each individual product, the kit or the whole kit and caboodle bundled up and ALL ARE EXCLUSIVELY available at a fabulous discount of 50% off from November 1-5 before returning to full price after that.

You will find so many wonderful papers, elements and cards to create a whole lot of beautiful layouts highlight the beauty and colors of autumn/fall or any layout that suits your photos.
