Pet projects

So I missed  my blog post yesterday because we had an impromptu trip 5 hours south and back to pick up a new dog from a rescue shelter. We weren’t exactly looking for a new dog, we already have one beautiful collie named Sophie, but when we happened to run across him, we were so taken we couldn’t say no. We added a beautiful new collie whom we named Blue boy, to our family. I know lot’s of you scrap about your pets, so I thought I’d share a picture of my new boy Blue and my sweet girl Sophie (forgive my cell phone quality photos), and ask to see some of your pet photos too! In addition, what a great time to share a few kits for pets that you can find in our shop here at WLS.

Our sweet girl Sophie
Here's my new boy Blue - isn't he sweet?















If you’ve got cats, here’s a sweet little kit, Cat’s Meow, from Schmooangel designs. To find Cat’s Meow in the shop, just click on the preview below.

Now for those sweet pups. How about this cutie, No No Bad Dog from Christine Smith Digital Designs? Fun right? Just click on this preview to be taken to No No Bad Dog in Christine’s shop at WLS.

Thanks for stopping in today. Don’t forget to share your pet photos (layouts welcome too!). Have a great day everyone!

Lipstick Jungle QP freebie

Do you have a wild child? Or are you perhaps a wild child yourself? Ah, now come on, I think we all have a bit of a wild side now and then, don’t we? That’s what makes life fun and interesting! You know what else? It makes our scrapbooks interesting too! I’m glad you stopped by today because I happen to have a sweet little treat for you (but you probably knew that because it’s Saturday, right, and at WLS, every Saturday is a freebie day, hooray!). This week I put together a QP for you, one that allows you to let your wild side shine a bit. I used the kit Lipstick Jungle from WLS designer Lisa Joy. You can find Lipstick Jungle here in Lisa’s shop. While you’re there, be sure to check out her other stuff too, and stay tuned because as one of our newest designers, Lisa is sure to have lot’s of new goodies in store in the very near future.

Creative Team Spotlight

This week I am featuring CT sarawhithers in the Creative Team Spotlight. You can check out her gallery here….

Here is a little interview I did with that will help you get to know her a bit better…

1. Tell us a bit about you….
My real name is Jennifer, even though my username is sarahwhithers. The story behind that is Sarah Whithers was my fake name. the one I used to give to guys who asked for my name and number and I didn’t want them to have my real info. Haha! It just kinda stuck on as my computer alias since then.
I’m 31 years old and live in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. I’m not married and no kids but I have a boyfriend, AJ of over 6 years, and 2 cats, Gwen and Link who pretty much are my kids. I love reading and music and of course scrapbooking!
I’ve been scrapbooking since September 2005 and got into digital scrapbooking shortly after in April 2006. Now I pretty much only do digital, it’s just so easy to clean up and of course, who doesn’t love an undo button?! 🙂

2. What would you say your style of scrapping is?
Hmm, this is a hard one. I’m not sure what it would be categorized as but I love bright colours and white space on my pages. So i guess contemporary could be the right way to describe them.

3. Who or what is your biggest inspiration when it comes to scrapping?
I’d prob say my cats, Gwen and Link just cuz they are so fun to scrap! They make any page look good when they’re in them!

4. What are your favorite type of kits? Least favorite?
I love bright coloured kits and fun elements. I’m a sucker for those cutesy elements. haha! My least fav would prob be the vintage-like kits just cuz I don’t know what I’m doing with them. They’re beautiful, but just not into my style I guess.

5. What program do you use?
I currently use Adobe Photoshop CS3 and on occasion I have used GIMP.

She sent me this adorable photo of her “babies” Gwen and Link and I just had to share it with you….

And last not least, here are some of her beautiful layouts….

So why don’t you head over to the With Love Studio Gallery and leave her a little bit of love!
