Hey there everyone!
CTM TracEy :o)~ Here....
What is Halloween without reading Halloween books to our little ones?
One MUST READ Halloween books to the little ones to help get them all jazzed up about the day...Not that the mention of candy wouldn't be enough already...LOL

Well this week my daughter came home with this book:
Trick or Treat, Smell My Feet by Diane DeGroat
I found the title very funny because I sing a song to her every year with these words, which most of you may already know.  It's a really cute story.  You should check it out at your local library.


Tomorrow is the BIG DAY!
I can't wait!

Today I have a little treat for you using the ALL NEW:

Tips using the alignment tool

Angie here with a quick tip about digital scrapbooking that I found about a year ago and I do not know how I got by without it.

This tool will help you align elements in a straight line horizontally or vertically,  even align the center of the elements or left side or right side.  It is a very handy tool.
I hope you take some time to play with this tool while scrapbooking.  It is a huge time and frustration saver.

Here is a scrapbook page I created with one of Lyndsay's kits using the alignment tool.  I used it to align the photos here.
Here I used the alignment tool for the 3 photos and the vertical line of candies.

Hybrid Goodness

Hi, everyone. Rachel here again. I'll confess that for most of the year, simple birthday cards are the only form of hybrid I dabble in. I'm more than a little scissors and glue challenged. But there's something about this time of year that makes me want to expand my hybrid repetoire. With Halloween costumes and decorating and holiday gifts to give, it's the perfect time to think of new ways to use some of your favorite Lyndsay Riches kits. Take a look at some of the amazing inspiration I found while searching the galleries at Scrap Orchard! (Images are linked for complete credits.)

First up is this fantastic R.I.P. bag by scrapshabby. She used Lyndsay's Something Wicked Kit. Another great kit option for Halloween projects is Lyndsay's newest release, Sweet Halloween.

If you're thinking stocking stuffers or small gifts for the 8 nights of Hanukkah, how about making the children in your life a game of memory? I know my kids would love to play Rachnmaddie's game using This Girl Really ROCKS! If you were making this for Christmas gifts, Sweet Sugar Holiday by Lyndsay and Meg Mullens would make a mouthwatering version!

Since cards are my one hybrid staple, I couldn't resist showing you this adorable card by Brynn Marie. She used 2 Peas in a Pod, a collab between Lyndsay and Laura Banasiak.

Finally, how perfect is this pizza and box by Samara Gugler? I'm getting hungry just looking at it! She used Lyndsay's Pizza Fresca.

If you've created any hybrid projects with Lyndsay's digi goodness, make sure to post them in her gallery at Scrap Orchard. We'd love to see them!

Behind the Page

Hi everyone! Kendall (aka kendallt) here to bring you the latest edition of "Behind the Page." Hehe...I just love that title. Doesn't it sound so dramatic? ;) I chose the LO I did using Lyndsay's amazing Crisp Days of Fall collab with Julie Bullock.


Okay, I have a confession to make...For the longest time, I hated fall. Blasphemy, I know! Let me explain. I live in the sunny and HOT Southeast, and I love summer! To me, summer just means fun in the sun, a more relaxed, carefree feeling, and wonderful family memories spent at the beach, BBQ'ing outside, or lounging by the pool. And then fall comes along and destroys all that. Perhaps I'm being a little too hard on fall, but I just don't care for cold weather. Plus, here in SC, we don't get much of a fall. The seasons change pretty abruptly, so we very rarely are able to experience the gorgeous fall colors, changing of the leaves, etc.

So, here I am hating fall pretty much all my life until I started scrapbooking. As cheesy as it may sound, being a scrapper has really changed the way I look at life in general and preserving my family's memories. I started seeing all the possibilities fall had to offer and appreciating it for those possibilities. The page I created with Crisp Days of Fall captures my family engaging in one of our favorite fall traditions: pumpkin carving!


Ever since my daughter was a baby, and even before she could really participate, my husband and I have made a huge deal of choosing the perfect pumpkin (or two!) and carving him or her into a jack-o-lantern masterpiece! Usually, my husband is the chief carver, my daughter the all-around assistant and head pumpkin guts scooper, and I'm the resident photographer.

A few years ago, I had an epiphany. This is such a messy project; why don't we do it outside? Brilliant! And so, in my LO, I tried to capture just a few of the fun and silly moments my family had carving our pumpkin last year. I think I speak for my husband and daughter when I say this is something all of us looks forward to year after year--our own little fall family tradition.

Thanks for reading my "Behind the Page," and if you haven't already, be sure to check out Lyndsay's gorgeous kit Crisp Days of Fall in the Scrap Orchard market. Have a great weekend, everyone!

Hi everyone,
Di here, and I've got a little freebie for you.

I loved working with Lyndsay's new kit This Girl Really ROCKS!, so thought I'd make a cluster frame for all those girly, rockin' pictures you might have in your albums.

{image is also linked}

Here's a reminder of the awesome kit that inspired the cluster frame.


Be sure to pop over to Lyndsay's store at Scrap Orchard, where you can pick up the full kit for 20% off until Oct06.

I hope you like the cluster frame.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
