Hi everyone…Kylie here! :o) As most digi-scrapping fanatics know, tomorrow is a big, big day in our lil’ digi-scrapping universe. Yes, it’s time to celebrate Digital Scrapbooking Day (DSD)!! Yay!!
Here at the Shabby Shoppe, to celebrate this fun day we would like to share TWO beautiful 2013 CALENDARS with you!
These are year-at-a-glance piece-a-cake calendar pages. One is 11×8.5 and super bright & happy! The other is 8.5×11 and beautiful & shabby! Both use the gorgeous Gracie collection. We hope that one (or both) will work well in your home…they are sure to brighten up any space! They also make awesome gifts for family and friends…especially at this time of year!! :o)

Hello everyone!! Hope this finds you all safe and well! Kylie here today to let you know about the Shabby Shoppe‘s HALLOWEEN SALE and to share a whole lotta HALLOWEEN scrapping faves with you :o)
At the Shabby Shoppe you’ll find, not one but, THREE Halloween-ish kits!

Tomorrow, Kim has some brand new scrapping inspiration (with a twist!) to share. But for TODAY, the team and I have picked out some of our all-time favourite halloween-themed layouts from the gallery…to show you exactly how these three awesome kits come to life on ‘paper’!

If you have been following the blog…you probably know that we (the blog) recently had our 2nd birthday…and our beloved Shabby Shoppe celebrated its SEVENTH birthday! hip-hip-Hooray!! So, to help us celebrate we invited one and all to play a couple of ‘party’ games. Whooo hooo!! ;o) Well…sooooo many of you joined in the fun & games…and that of course made our birthday all the more special - THANK YOU, THANK YOU for being part of our special month-long birthday celebrations!! It just wouldn’t have been the same without you! :o)
The time has come to finish up our two games…but not before I hand out some PRIZES!!!

It was lovely to see which blog posts have been your faves and your reasons why…you’re all sooo sweet! And if you are interested…here is a lil’ Link-A-Post trivia! LOL!
