Trip(ping) Down Memory Lane

So while celebrating our Birthday Bash (2 years old, yay!) at the Spraground, my dear friend Jessica Sprague the Digital Scrapbooking Queen (giggle) * challenged us to recall our digital scrapbooking journey, and knowing how I sometimes get so excited with trips that I travel way past the end of the road, guess where this reminiscing journey took me?

All the way back to the days (and songs) of my childhood!



My favorite, favorite, F-A-V-O-R-I-T-E song of all time!

Break out the fruit shakes and spread the beach blankies!

This one somehow seems to be forever tied to an image of my eldest brother in his pageboy haircut. πŸ˜†

And this one is linked to an image of my sister in her straight long hair.

This song… oh man, what memories.

Can’t help singing along with this one, to this day!

What would the seventies be without Rupert Holmes?

Two of my favorite things in life: laughter and rain.

Don’t think I’ll ever stop loving this song:

Oh yeah. But Warren Beatty, I thought you had every right to be vain. πŸ˜€

Don’t you just love reminiscing?

Have a great night, sweeties!

Back to the saltmines! Catch you later! πŸ˜‰

*( giggling at a little joke between Jes and me)

Birthday Bash at!

We’re turning 2 years old this month at, and we’re inviting everyone to the PAR-TAY!

Things are buzzing around the Spraground; we’ve got a week-long birthday bash going on! Lots of cookies (as can be expected from the Dark Side, hahaha! πŸ˜† ) and cakes and ice cream, and boy have we got party hats in a big way! Come on over and check it out!

Also just doing a quick post to let you know (but you probably already do! πŸ˜‰ ) that we have awesome party favors and giveaways!

Plus we’re getting new stuff in the shop throughout the week, so keep checking back for more stuff!


We’ve got 24-hour birthday freebies that we’re giving away every single day of this Birthday Bash week! You’ll find them up on our Spraground blog homepage, and you can download them from there from 10Am of the release day till 10AM of the next day, when a new freebie comes up and the previous one gets moved to our shop. So I hope you’ll take advantage of those 24 hours when these awesome goodies will be free for you! YAY!

I’m coming in a day late here (partying too hard on the Spraground, hahaha!) so the first freebie has gone up and down, and will now be available in the shop… BUT we’ve got the Day 2 freebie up, and this is why I’m running over to my porch to let you all know! There’s still time to snag it! πŸ˜€

Today’s freebie is my first template product in the shop (well, technically, it isn’t in the shop yet as it’s FREE right now, but tomorrow it’ll be moved to the shop shelves πŸ˜€ ). It’s also the template we’re using to play with today as we go about doing our Birth-Day 2 / June Create-a-Day:Day 23 challenge!

Here’s what it looks like:


And here’s the layout that I created as a sample (featuring my very pretty niece):


And you can download it from our blog homepage till 10am tomorrow morning, Eastern Standard Time! After 10am it will go into our shop, and a new freebie will be up for grabs! YAY!

More coming soon, but right now I’ve got cookies waiting for me on the Spraground! Come skip and hop with me to the Spraground?


Beam me up, Scotty!
