Take $2.00 Tuesday™ at Gotta Pixel

Hello! I hope you’re not too snowed in on this Take $2 Tuesday™. Here in Arkansas our snow lingered for a few days, but the 60° F weather here knocked it out quite fast and has me dreaming of warmer days. So I decided to do a Summer Take $2 Tuesday™.

If you’re dreaming of warmer weather like I am, make sure to check out the Summer Fun digital scrapbooking page kit on sale for just $2.00. Plus, all add on packs for Summer Fun are on sale for just $1 and the Summer Fun bundle is marked down to $4.50. And, for you template lovers, Busy Body Templates Vol 3 is on sale this week for just $2.00, too.

You can also find Summer Fun and Busy Body Templates Vol 3 on sale in my Scraps N Pieces store, too.

Smarty Pants

Hey everyone! It’s been quite a busy few weeks here with the lead up to school starting, school actually starting, and dealing with that slight slump that happens about a week later when getting up to go to school is neither new or exciting. I have to say, it’s been pretty interesting with both of the boys heading off to school this year. I haven’t quite gotten used to the quiet yet and I still have that big “yay they’re coming home!” smile in the pick up line. You know the one, right? Anyone taking bets on how long that lasts? Lol!

So, to capture all those great moments this year, I created Smarty Pants. It’s a huge collection filled with fun elements in bright, fun colors to scrap those memories with the same sort of happy feel that those first day smiles brought on. Smarty Pants is on sale for 30% off for one week, so check out these previews and grab them before the sale ends!

And congratulations to Sara Tomlinson who said “The thing I love most about back to school time is shopping for school supplies! ybkids always groan about having to think about school….but, to me, the best things are sharp, unused crayons in a box and a brand new package of markers or pens!!!” Be on the lookout for an email from me to get this collection for free!
