Sooo…  who wants to win a FREE PHOTOSHOOT???

Well, you could very well win yourself one.  I’m giving away a session of choice (limited to my “a family affair”, “sweethearts”, “it’s all you”, “pawtraits”, and “headshots” sessions) to one lucky Facebook fan.  All you have to do to enter is pop on over to FB, like my page if you haven’t already, and then share both my page and this note:  https://www.facebook.com/notes/td-photography/win-a-photoshoot-with-td-photography-saskatoons-photosmith/422511161133793  Make sure you pop back over to the note afterwards to let me know you shared and to claim your entry.  You can get yourself as many as FIVE entries by simply sharing in a variety of places in a variety of ways.

The give-away is open to both new fans and past clients.  So hop on over to my FB fan page at http://www.facebook.com/tdfoto and start sharing your way to a free session!

 

Scraptastic Saturday – Blog Train!

Hey everyone!  I’m going to be real quick here.  Poor wee girlie has the chicken pox…  or, as she calls them, “chicken spots”.  So I’m awfully tired.  Didn’t know it was possible to get them in all the places they’ve managed to show up.  I have to admit, I’m awfully glad the girl is asleep now.  She needed to get some rest.

Anyway…

Crystal, of Sugar Pie Scraps (selling exclusively at Polka Dot Plum), is celebrating her Designiversary this weekend.  She’s been working as a designer for a year now!  Hard to believe she has so many amazing kits when she’s only been doing this for a year.  Her stuff is absolutely awesome.

To celebrate, the Sugar Pie Chefs are hosting a blog train.  Hop on board at the first stop and work your way through all the links to pick up some awesome free goodies.

Happy Anniversary Crystal!  Here’s to many, many more!!!  😀

Scraptastic Saturdays – OH DEAR!

Well, it’s official.  I’m addicted to designing.  Today I’ve got another freebie for you.  A mini-kit I call “Oh Dear”.

My first kit mainly contained commercial use (CU) items from other designers that I’d coloured or retooled…  just to kinda test the waters.  But with Oh Dear, I built several elements from scratch.  Now that the design bug has bit, I’ll likely be looking for a shop soon, where I can bring you kits on a regular basis.  So stay tuned for that.  🙂  But until then, here’s “Oh Dear”.  Just click to download.  And enjoy!

If you are up for a challenge, check out the Plum.  I’ve got a mini-kit challenge posted there, featuring Oh Dear.  You only have until Tuesday at midnight to play though, so you better hurry.  The challenge is posted here:  http://www.polkadotplum.com/forum/showthread.php?t=4915

Enjoy a freebie or two?  Then you’ll want to check out Sugar Pie Scrap’s blog come the ninth.  There’ll be an four seasons blog train rolling through that day in honour of Enchanted Studio Scraps birthday.  Crystals kit is really lovely, so you won’t want to miss it.  Just head on over to http://sugarpiescrapping.blogspot.com/ to check it out and download it.  She’s also released a new kit this week called A Fresh Start that is really something.  The embossed papers in it are absolutely fabulous.

That’s it today.  Take care everyone, and HAPPY SCRAPPIN’!

Scraptastic Saturdays – free scrapbooking kit

Happy New Year!!!

To celebrate our entry into the new decade I’m giving away a digi-scrapping kit.  It’s my first try at designing, and appropriately, I’ve called the kit “First Try”.  Click on the preview image below to download it.

The kit, “First Try”, includes:

  • six (6) papers
  • three (3) flowers
  • two (2) buttons
  • two (2) bows
  • two (2) scalloped circles
  • two (2) word arts (only one shown)
  • one (1) tag
  • three (3) bling swirls

No commercial use please, personal use only.  No scrap for hire.

If you do download, and then use my kit, I’d love to see what you create with it.  🙂  Please stop by here and post a link to your layout(s) in the comments section.

Enjoy!

Scraptastic Saturday – a new kit, a new LO, and a new freebie

Lots of scraptastic stuff today.  🙂

First off, Sugar Pie Scraps has got an amazing new kit out at Polka Dot Plum.  It’s called Snow, Sledding & Sweets.  I absolutely love it.  When I first saw it, I knew I liked it…  but it wasn’t until I actually started working with it that I fell in love with it.  This kit really is a dream to work with.  It’s got a ton of flexibility, and works with both the sillier layouts and the more serious ones.  It really is fabulous.  And even better?  You have a chance to WIN it.  Hop on over to http://www.digishoptalk.com/boards/happy-place-31/win-snow-sledding-sweets-263926/ to enter the free draw.

 

Now, here’s the new LO (layout).  And you guessed it…  I used the kit above.  LOL

Oh right…  I also promised a freebie, didn’t I.  I didn’t forget.

The image is linked, so just click on it to download.  🙂

yuletide spirit wordartAnd if you feel like playing along, why not stop by the plum and share what you’ve created using my word art.  🙂  The url for the challenge is http://www.polkadotplum.com/forum/showthread.php?t=4773 All I ask, is that when giving credit please list it as “a scraptastic design by TD”.  🙂

 

That’s it from me today.  I’m off to a party with some really great folks we know through my husbands work.  Take care, and be safe.

Today I’m bringing you another Scraptastic Design by TD.  In particular, a wordart freebie.  I host the definition challenge at ESS every month, and for November I chose the word “special”.

You can download the wordart at http://www.mediafire.com/?m9299vt96tv6y1m.  Then, if you feel like playing along, head on over to http://www.enchantedstudioscraps.com/forums/showthread.php?t=11043 to play along.  For your layout to count towards the points awarded at ESS at least 40% of your LO (layout) must contain product from ESS designers.  But you can always play along without worrying about challenge points too….  in which case, you can upload your LO anywhere, and just share a link here so I can find it and leave you some love.  🙂

Hope you enjoy the word art.

Scraptastic Saturday – I’m BACK!

Sorry everyone.  I’ve been an absentee blogger lately.  I have been taking a daily photograph, but life simply got in the way of my posting them.  I’ve been absolutely run off my feet the last while, but I am hoping everything is going to settle back down into our regular routine now.  Of course, those could end up becoming famous last words – though I hope not.  LOL

So, it’s Scraptastic Saturday.  That being the case, I’ve got a couple things to share.  🙂

As you likely read earlier in the week, “Little” was born!  YAY!  Well, “Little” now has a name:  Finn.  And it suits him perfectly.  So here’s a layout I did a little earlier in the week, when Finn was only a couple days old, featuring photos from when he was only minutes old.

Welcome Finn!

For this layout I used a kit by Sugar Pie Scraps called “My Boy”.  It is available at the Digital Scrap Cafe, here’s a direct link to the kit:  http://digitalscrapcafe.com/cafe/product.php?productid=18459&cat=0&page=1

In other scraptastic news, I am now running the Definition Challenge over at Enchanted Studio Scraps.  The whole month of October, everything has been done to reflect a spooky Halloween theme – which I just love.  🙂  This is SOOO my favourite time of year.  With that in mind, I decided to use the word “creepy” for this months challenge.  Hope you’ll decide to play along.

Creepy Definition

You can find the challenge rules, and download the wordart at:  http://enchantedstudioscraps.com/forums/showthread.php?p=113448

Well, that’s it for today.  Welcome to October everyone.  Hope it’s a spooktacular month for you.  😀  Full of the richness of the season, the warmth of the heart, and the fun of both Thanksgiving and Halloween.  Be good to one another!
