Ok, I think I have everything in PSP set up right *crosses fingers*. I only installed a few plugins this time, I must have had 70 or so installed last time and it just got to be too many too sort through. I did finish up the three tuts that I had started, and each of the examples is linked to the page if you'd like to give it a try.

Well my laptop pushed my last button on Friday, so in went the reformat disk. Then because of my pickiness, in went that disk another three times, lol. So, finally, I think I have it the exact way I want it. All of my annoyances are fixed, 4Shared, Fotki, no sound, etc. I haven't opened up PSP yet to set all that up, but I will soon. I do have three tutorials that I need to finish up. I had already posted the tags themselves on the tut blog if you want to be nosy =) So with that, I'm off to get my email caught up....

If you're feeling whimsical, this is the tut to try, lol. I used "My Fairytale" by Missy Lynn Scraps for this one. There is the cutest book in there with wings, I love it! If you'd like to give it a try, you can do so here.
Have you ever worked with a kit that made you smile the whole time you were using it? That was how I was with this one from Missy Lynn, "Bathtime Toys". The colors are so bright and cheery, and the elements are so cute, you can't help but smile, lol. I know if someone would have walked by me while I was writing out the tut, they'da thought I lost it. If you would like to smile too, you can give the tut a try here.
Do ya'll know what flairs are? The amusing little buttons from the 80s and 90's? TGIFridays really made them "famous" while back. Would anyone like some if I made them, personal use and free to use of course? I find them cute, and I've seen so many at the old fashioned brick and mortar stores that I thought maybe I should make a few. If it'd be something you'd think that you would want to add to your blog or forum leave me a comment (can be anonymous, I'm not picky). And yes, before someone asks, I will do Twilight ones, lol. Now comment me!!

I was in the mood for a Twilight tag and lo and behold Designs by Helly has a kit that fit the image that I wanted to use perfectly! I used "You Are My Life Now" and am so thrilled with how this one turned out. It's not in the gallery yet, so don't everybody go runnin' at once. I'll let ya know when I put it up for request, I have to get caught up on all the requests first.
Gemini Creationz just joined Twilight Scraps and I couldn't wait to use one of her kits. I chose "Adoration" and it's absolutely beautiful. There's some really great frames in there that I thought might look great with a Twilight tag. We'll have to see...The tag is up for request though if you'd like one, and you can find it here.
I've been itching to use this tube and found the perfect kit, thanks Missy!! I used Missy Lynn Scraps "Poisoned Rock" kit and it has the most fabby papers! If you'd like to give the tut a try you can do so here. Send me your results if you do, I'd love to make a slide show for my blog.

I used the last kit in Polka Dot Scraps Twilight Saga, "Sunrise". All the kits have the most wonderful elements, and it's so hard to choose which one's to use. She's releasing a few more Twilight inspired kits so be on the lookout for them.
Picked up the last two of Polka Dot Scrap's Twilight Saga set. The one I used for this tag is "Outshine". Couldn't decide on a theme for this tag so I chose Bella choosing between Edward and Jacob. I think she made the right choice *s*.

I added another tutorial that you can find here featuring "Angelic Passions" by Missy Lynn Scraps. I also have the tag for request and you can find that here. She always uses the prettiest elements in her kits you really need to take a peek at her kits to appreciate what I mean.

Are you hot today? I know it's really humid here, but earlier this week I froze, no wonder why I'm confused all the time, lol. In honor of the heat, I did a nautical themed tag this time around using "Ahoy Matey!" by Un-Leash-ed Scraps. It's actually a full size kit, and it would make some awesome beach layouts. I have it up in the gallery if you'd like to request it.

Rieneke Designs is working on a collection of black and white kits, all featuring a different accent color. She had just released the blue when I got it, and there's a gorgeous purple one out now too. The tag is for request if you would like one.
I am such a fan of Charlaine Harris's Southern Vampire Series, so when Oopsie Daisy came out with her Bon Temps Collection I was way too excited, lol. I've read all the books and short stories, and currently watch "True Blood" on HBO. The TV show is loosely based on the books, but if you love Twilight, you need to check out this series. It's a more adult themed, and explores more than vampires and werewovles (fairies, shapeshifters, other supes). I'm such an Eric fan that I had to get my mouse on Oopsie's "Eric" kit. For a thousand year old viking, he looks pretty damn good! I am offering both the tag up for request here, and the tutorial here.

Well all of the Jacob fans out there know what happens at the full moon and this is what Polka Dot Scraps captures in her second Twilight kit "Full Moon". The colors of this are perfect! I have two more tags to make with the remaining kits in the saga, so keep your eyes peeled and your mouse poised! This one's in the gallery all ready for your requests.
Polka Dot Scraps has a new set of kits out for the Twilight Saga, so you know I had to tag with those! Right now you can get all four of the kits in one package for under five bucks at Scrappin Bratz!! The first one is "Night Sun" and has some really awesome elements in it to play with. It's in the gallery already if you'd like one for yourself.
I'm still stalking poor Missy Lynn, lol. This time I used the kit "Timeless" and did both a tut that you can find here, and it's also in the request gallery (the tag is linked there). As usual, she has the most wonderful goodies in there, and I'm totally in love with the teddy bear!!

Alyssa has this really cute kit out called "Girlie Spots" that I just couldn't decide what to do with. One of those where you can do so much, that you can't decide on what to do first, lol. Anyway, I really wanted to work with the silohette's in there, so you get Naughty which is up for request if you'd like to get a little naughty too!

Since I'm stalking Missy Lynn, don't be surprised if you see quite a few more tuts done using her kits. This one used her just released "Grungy Love". I couldn't decide if I wanted to go the goth route or the rock route. This kit has lots of possibilities! Anyway, if you are looking for the tut, it's here, and if you'd like to request the already made tag, go here.
Jo just released two new kits, "What Little Girls Are Made Of" and "What Little Boys Are Made Of". Couldn't decide which kit to use, so I used 'em both. The tags are loaded in the gallery already for ya if you'd like to request one.

Added a tut today using another kit by Missy Lynn Scraps, "Tropical Paradise". Absolutely gorgeous elements in there! Tag is linked to the tut page. Lemme know if you give any of my tuts a try, I'd love to see the results.

We all know how much I love a black and red kit, so when I saw Missy Lynn Scraps' "Petals of Romance", I jumped on it! I have written a tut for it which you can find here, and if you click on the tag, I have it in the request gallery also.

This kit amused me to no end. It has the cutest little elements I couldn't decide which to use. The kit is "Private Eye" by Girlfriend Designz. I love how the tag turned out! There's one for you in the gallery if you'd like to request it.
Just a note to let ya know I'm cleaning out old blog posts again today. All the old sales ads will be removed, and I'm also double checking making sure I have all my tags that I've made recently posted. So if something disappears on ya while you were lookin' at it, you're not crazy, it's me in here playin'!
Isn't this pretty? I really enjoyed working with this kit, very soft and feminine. It's Introducing Esme by "Heartbeatz Creationz". I'll have to keep my eye out for a great Esme picture and make a Twilight tag. This tag is loaded in the gallery if you'd like one.
