$2 Tuesday from Connie Prince

It's already Tuesday and today Connie has two wonderful kits for only $2 at her stores; Travelogue Canada and Choose Happy. Each add on pack is only $1!

 I made a LO from our Spring 2013 visit to Walt Disney World using the Travelogue Canada kit. Unfortunately, we didn't look around the Canada pavilion too much because the kids had had enough for one day, but what we did see was pretty neat! There's always next time, right?!

 The Travelogue Canada kit as well as the extra packs are available at Gingerscraps & The Digichick.

Choose Happy is such a fun kit and I just adore these colors! There are all the usual add on packs available in Gingerscraps & The Digichick store as well.

This LO I made a few months ago. Don't you just love that plaid paper?

That's it for today! Now hurry over to your favorite Connie Prince store and pick up these kits at this amazing price!

January 2017 Grab Bag by Connie Prince

I'm a little late with this post, but this new January 2017 grab bag by Connie Prince is still available at the special price of $5 until January 11. It's a must have for anyone with gamers in their life.
Here is a peek at the grab bag available at Gingerscraps & The Digichick.

The full reveal of the items in $5 grab bag can be seen in the store. Here is a peak of the full collection:







Above is the LO I made with this fun & vibrant kit! I'm definitely NOT a gamer; but my kids sure are! My son had to tell me what games some of these elements are from. That's all I have to show you today! Tomorrow is $2 Tuesday!

MOC 5 at the Lilypad

 With the closing of Gotta Pixel, I decided to give another store a try and stumbled across the MOC 5 at the Lilypad. A lot of my favorite designers have been there since the closing of Scrap Orchard a while back, but I haven't really been active in the forum there. MOC 5 is a month long challenge where you need to complete 31 challenges; one for each day of January, and in the end you will get a $20 store reward! Can't beat that. So despite the fact that I only have a few kits that qualify for the challenge (they need to be in the store currently), I'm going to go ahead and give it my best!  Here are my first two pages...

Disney has been a big part of my life for as long as I can remember. The first movie I saw in a movie theatre was Aristocats. The first time I was really sick--with the chicken pox--I stayed home with my grandmother and watched Mary Poppins. My Dad took my brother and I to Disney World the first time when I was 10--I LOVED it! Fast forward 13 years to
when I first started buying clothes for my own first child, I had to include some Disney themed items. Her first rattle was a Disney Pooh Bear and her first stuffy was a Tigger with a rattle inside. We took my daughter to WDW when she was 2; and then 6 years and 2 more kids later, we were a family of 5 having a blast at the Happiest Place on Earth! We all love the movies, books, dolls, figurines, and all the magic that Disney merchandise brings. We love it all--from Marvel to the princesses, to Pixar, to Star Wars. Disney has always been a big part of my life and it always will be!

Journaling Reads:
Twenty-sixteen was a busy & fun year for the Goshert Family. In January we went to see the new Star Wars movie and record low temps dumped almost 3 feet of snow. February brought record cold temps & pretty flowers for Valentine's Day. In March, I turned 36 and Avery turned 12! Easter came in April with lots of goodies from the Easter Bunny.We finally got the kids' pictures taken for Spring. Baseball & softball kept us busy in the Spring & early Summer months. Daddy fell & sprained his foot causing him to miss work for a month. Avery was in the Lion King Jr. play at school. The Summer months we spent working in the garden & we hatched and released at least a dozen butterflies. Collin turned 9 and Austin 6. We spent many nights roasting marshmallows & chatting by the fire. We had a wonderful vacation to the Outer Banks in late Summer. Austin started 1st grade, Collin 4th, and Avery 7th. We went trick or treating through town with friends for Halloween. Daddy turned 37. Before we knew it, it was Christmas morning and there were cameras, a bike, and legos under the tree! Cheers to hoping 2017 brings health & happiness to all of us!

Well that's it for today!
