When does the competition start? The first challenge begins June 1st and goes through until June 28th. Winner to be announced on July 1st!

What is the goal… besides too out scrap the competition and have fun? To become the first Layout Artisan. Each week we will have a challenge, for those that scrap out the competition and move forward, congrats, you will be one step closer! But wait, I said we get to have fun as well, even if you do not get to move forward in the competition there is a way for you to still play and win a separate prize – what? Oh yeah, there is ‘Second Chance Artisan!!’ Just for playing along you will also receive a discount prize as well. So let’s have some fun!

How does the competition work? The first challenge will be posted on the 1st with layouts due every Sunday by Midnight EST. Judging will take 24 hours. The second challenge and thereafter will be posted every Tuesday with a list of those moving forward. Each layout must include 70% of With Love Studio current designer elements. This includes freebies given on blogs, Facebook and newsletters. Each week our designers will have some of the kits on sale for you to grab! For those who participate in the ‘Second Chance Artisan’, you will create a layout from the same challenge to make it easy for everyone to play.

How does the voting work? There will be both public voting and private voting (by our team) and scores will be combined to determine who moves forward and our final winner.

New Release.. Family Tree

As I am getting older I am finding that I want to learn more about my family and where we come from. Do you feel the same way? Do you like hearing stories about what your grandparents life was like growing up. I think that is the best part about my age now, is being able to communicate with my family on a different level and being able to handle those stories. There are some stories that I will never get to hear because they have passed on but I would have liked to have met and heard what it was like for my mother’s parent’s growing up. My mom’s mom passed before I was born and her father passed when I was 4 or 6. I only have a single photo of them and one china saucer of my grandmother.

My oldest daughter bought me this beautiful family history book for me to write in and it got me thinking about how much more I could do if I had a kit that I could create layouts with and create my own book with stories in it that I can share with my family. So that is what I did.

If you could create a layout using this kit, what would create? What would you journal?

Right now this kit is on sale but also if you purchase the kit, you will receive the brushes for Photoshop for free. They do have the PNG copy as well for those who use Elements or Paint Shop Pro.

$1 kits over at WithLoveStudio.net

Hope everyone’s Easter is going well. How was your egg hunting? We missed Easter this year for the first time ever due to my tooth extraction getting dry socket.. Oh, you never want that to happen, the pain is insane – radiates from the chin to the ear. Hubby has to work like always, so it should be a quiet day. But I feel bad that we didn’t get my little one (whose 13) an easter basket and didn’t have a chance to color eggs – which she loves to do. Maybe I can a make-up Easter next weekend! Surprise her with little hint cards to make her look around the house for the basket.. where is a good hiding place for you? Living in Arizona, I don’t want someplace outside or else the chocolate will melt and I need it high or behind closed doors because of the fury babies..maybe our closet by the front door. hmmm..

Digging through our junk.. oops memory totes..

Throughout our lives we hold onto things, memories, thing that trigger those memories and junk! Yes, I said it, junk. Growing up, with every move we made, my mom would pack our stuff up and somehow not everything made it to the new house – my barbie dolls and their clothes and accessories, my comic book collection, my hot wheels collections, my books, etc. Some of those would have been worth big money now – such as the original atari or nintendo and its games, some of my barbies, or my x-men comic books. But according to my mom, she has no clue what happened to all that stuff or.. oh you grew out of it.

Well, said to say because of that, I am now a possible junk collector.. I don’t want to throw out any of my stuff – I do but not everything. I have Barbies, hot wheels and comic books still in the packaging so I don’t lose them or even play with them. What is wrong with me!!!! Yes, I am 39 but I am still a Toy R’ Us kid!

I am also a parent, and what I have I done, well started each of my children on the road to having their own memories box or tote or two. Yes, I have started saving all their stuff as well. But that is not going to help then when they move out into their own place and I ship them 10 boxes of junk they never knew they had or needed. So what do I do to stop the madness!!

After reading this article.. http://www.buzzfeed.com/morganshanahan/genius-ways-to-immortalize-your-kids-artwork I have decided that it is time to take pictures of everything that we have in those totes and we all have to decide what is worth holding onto and what is worth tossing. But everything will have a photo, so we can add them to a photobook that we can cherish in smaller doses and save a lot of space.
