Dino Roar from Kellybell Designs

ROAR!!  Kelly's got a brand new collection to share with you today.  It's very prehistoric and dates way back to the Jurassic period.  You're going to love it!  It's called...

This collection is fabulous for scrapping your visits to the Dinosaur Museum, nature parks and of course to DinoLand at Animal Kingdom or T-Rex Cafe.  If you've got a young paleontologist at home, then you can use this for scrapping all of their fossil digs.  The kit contains a fabulous brown full alpha, 15 papers in amazing colors and patterns, and over 50 elements including 4 adorable dinosaurs, dinosaur egg, flairs, dinosaur trees and plants, doodles, swirls, stitching, ribbons, word tags and much more!

Here's a peek at the 6 page starters.  You'll get a border cluster, 2 cluster strips and 3 frame clusters.  Too cute!

Don't you love these paper stacks?!  Make sure you add them to your cart when you check out this collection.

And don't forget the word art pack and cardstocks!

Hurry on over to to pick up this collection for 25% off this weekend only. It's such a fun kit!

For some dino-roaring inspiration, take a look at what I scrapped with this collection.  I made a 2 page layout of our lunch at T-Rex.  The theming there is so amazing, you could walk around for hours just staring at all the displays.  It's a fun place but pretty loud.

Why are the freebies always at the bottom??  Good question!  You need to scroll through the collection to see all the great pieces so you can appreciate each of the freebies that the Creative Team has made for you.  Are you ready?  Here's the ladies you need to visit to find a dino treat...  Have a wonderful weekend and happy scrapping!

Kellybell Designs February Blog Challenge

It's a new year and Kellybell Designs has a new set of blog challenges for you each month.  The format is changing a little bit to allow for more flexibility and creativity.  Plus, everyone who submits a layout each month will receive a participation prize.  Kelly's Creative Team has been busy whipping up freebies for you and I think you're going to like them!!  And the most outstanding layout will receive a gift certificate to Kelly's store.

Here's the participation prize you'll receive this month for playing along.  It was made by CT Member JessicaK.  And it's perfectly coordinating with the girly theme.

Here are the rules and instruction to participation in the Monthly Blog Challenge:
  • Scrap a page that showcases something girly at Disney. This can be a meet and greet with a female character (like Cinderella, Minnie Mouse, Marie, Daisy Duck), a show or ride more targeted to girls (like Beauty and The Beast Live), or park photos with your daughter, mother or you in it (as long as at least 1 photo has a female in it)
  • You can use as many photos as you want and include as many elements and papers that you choose.  We want to see your creativity sparkle!
  • Layouts should be made with 100% Kellybell products or freebies (you are allowed to use a template from another designer).  You are welcome to submit more than 1 layout.
  • Post your layout into the Challenges Gallery at Kellybell Designs by midnight EST February 28th.  Participation prizes will be sent to the email address you have listed with Kelly's gallery.
The most outstanding layout will be announced the first week of March.  That's also when the participation prizes will be sent out.  

Kelly has sooooooo many beautiful princess kits and girly stuff in the store.  You might think about scrapping with some of these kits.

Wow, that was quite a list!  I'm sure you can come up with lots of ideas to scrap that have something girly about them.

For some inspiration and layout ideas, here's a page that I scrapped.  As you know, there's not much girly stuff in my house full of boys.  So I scrapped one of the few pictures with me in it (thanks to PhotoPass).

Can't wait to see what your girly layout looks like!  Have fun scrapping this month.  Don't miss out on getting your layout submitted to the Kellybell Challenge gallery.  The princess word art participation prize is amazing!!
