We have a lovely freebie on our Facebook, created by our own Cynthia (mrspeel), it's an alpha for the moving kit Relocate!!!  Grab it now so that your titles will match!!!  And, it's versatile enough to use for so many other kits!!!

So, while I was in London, I took the opportunity to meet up with Cynthia!!!  My oh my, was that a fun afternoon.  It's too bad I was only there for a long weekend with my family!  I almost wish I could of ditched  them!  ROFL.  I got to meet Sarita (the subject of most of Cynthia's layouts) and she is so much prettier in person and so friendly!!!  And I loved the fact that she stayed to chat with us...and MAKE US PANCAKES!  Now, I've only ever had fat American pancakes and Danish style thin pancakes (which we eat with raspberry jam and powder sugar) so I had to try what they say is traditional British pancakes.  Sarita showed me how to squeeze lemon juice on the pancake and sprinkle granulated sugar on it and then roll it up and POP them into your mouth!  WOW!!!  love the contrast in sweet, sour, and pancake.  Luscious with my very British milky tea.  And yes, Cynthia and I didn't stop talking, too much to talk about and I was supposed to meet up with DH at 7pm but that didn't happen.  I was LATE.  Let me tell you, that was just two of us.  Can you imagine if our whole CT (about 20 of us) got together???  It would be one rocking loud chick party!!!  Thank you so much Cynthia and Sarita for your hospitality and I'm so very happy to meet you both!

Relocate, new kit in the store!

Well, it seems we are not good bloggers this month!  In light of my (Vivienne's) move and Vanessa's impending move (2 weeks away!) how could we not come up with a moving house kit?  Here it is:

So, I've settled into our new location, but I HAVE NO MOVING photos.  In the mess of our move, I forgot!  and too bad because some of it was just very funny.  We ended up having 6 very nice young men helping us along with 4 of my friends and a couple of Karl's friends and at one point, there were more boxes and furniture outside along the side of the road where the truck was that DD1 said it looked like we were being evicted.  The truck just couldn't keep up with the rate! glad it is over with for now!

Here is some awesome layouts from both our team and the DigiChick team:

Last week, my girls were on their winter break and we took a chance for a quick trip to London for a long weekend.  The girls got to spend the time with two of their friends who live there and DH had some much needed rest.  We both brought our laptops but ended up not even cracking them open.  DH and I went to the Victoria and Albert museum and then spent some time at Waterstone's enjoying the huge selection of books.  Living in Denmark, I tend to ignore conversations around me in Danish, because I don't quite get ALL of it.  I had the hardest time in London, not listening in to EVERYONE'S conversation in English.  It was almost annoying.  On Sunday, the girls came back and we caught a matinee of Lion King.  What a superb show.  No wonder the director won so many awards when it first came out!  

And, just in case you didn't see our last kit, it's a safari styled one inspired by Out of Africa.  I'm nuts about Karen Blixen's writings and the movie itself was gorgeous.  This kit, LOST WORLD, is not only for African Safari memories (not all of us get to go on one!) but you can use it for zoo photos, Disney photos, art journaling and more.  Our team found it extremely versatile to use:

I love the look and feel of this kit!

Happy scrapping, ladies!!!

Book layouts anyone?

The DigiChicks has a HUGE sale storewide going on now and thru the weekend.  Everything is 30% off (except the bundles which are already marked down considerably more!).  Head over there for your scrapping fix!!!

So we finally had to do a book kit, cause we're both huge readers.  I have to say, I'm the one with the junkier selection.  Vanessa likes books with social themes and really good writing.  I'm not too fussy.  I just tend to like morbid crime novels.  My favorite being Patricia Cornell ones and yes, I loved the Millenium series.  I even read one of them in Danish (it too me over a month to manage that one and I had to cheat a couple times as I read it with an English book nearby).  OK, so, here's the kit:

Along with a bunch of element packs:

And, these are also available in a money saving 40% off bundle:
