STS November 2012 Road Trip - "Family Mealtime"

It's past my bedtime (hey, it's late in MY time zone!), but I nearly forgot to put up my STS Road Trip content! It's been that kind of a day...

The theme this month was "Family Mealtime." Initially, I was a bit uninspired by the theme and the color palette, and I considered not even participating. But I had this little niggling of an idea in the back of my head that kept bugging me. When I thought of the words "Family Mealtime," I thought about the never-ending battle we are in the thick of at our house - to teach our 2 year old some table manners! It seems hardly a meal passes without a spill or food on the floor or food smeared all over the clothes she JUST put on! I thought about all the photos I have of her covered in food (adorable and annoying at the same time!). And I realized, plenty of other people probably have pictures like that too. So I went with it.

Submitted for your approval, the "What a Mess" mini:

Download it HERE, and please take a minute to leave some love! It will only take you a minute and your comments mean so much to me! If you really want to send me into spasms of glee (I am not exaggerating here, I really do get that excited!), email me a layout you've made with some of my stuff at!! If you are cool with it, I'll even post it here for everyone to see!

What's the rush? Why not take a few minutes to scroll down and discover some of the other FREE goodies I have for you? While you're at it, see that little box over there to the left that says "Follow By Email"? Why not pop your email address in so you will always be alerted when I put up a new freebie?

And one last bit of shameless begging: I am looking for volunteer quality checkers! My darling friend Sarah is overworked! I need a few more sets of eyes to look things over before they go live. Its not an especially complicated job, and you'll get to see new stuff before anyone else! I also might be persuaded to make some custom stuff for my helpers.... If you're interested, please email me at

  6. Totally love your portion of this kit. Love the little hand. Thank u. How did you start designing?

    1. That's my daughter's hand print. :) Glad you like it!

      I started designing a few months ago, and I guess I have my friend Sarah ( to thank. I'd been wanting to try my hand at designing for awhile, but never got around to it. One day she said, "I think we should participate in the next STS Road Trip. We can do that!" So we both jumped in feet first with the Jungle Adventure theme. I kept it up because Sarah is like my own personal assistant - reminding me of deadlines and keeping me on task, lol! The more I made, the more ideas I had... Its quickly taken over my free time, and I love learning new techniques and new programs. I can see myself improving with every release and I am proud of how far I have come since those first few animal elements! Thanks for asking!

  7. Sorry, I don't know how to say "You're welcome" in French! How about if I say "Graag gedaan," instead? The only language I know other than English is Dutch. :)
