NEW! Garden Fresh

How many of you have already started your garden?  I remember my parents always having a garden out in the back yard growing up, helping keep the weeds pulled out of the rows, helping plant the small plants, and even planting some seeds as I was a little older.  My husband grew up with a garden in the back yard as well.  I’ve always admired those that could keep a garden growing and producing vegetables.  I just don’t have a green thumb I guess because my attempts have never survived to produce anything!  I do however enjoy the fresh produce at the local farmer’s market.

Connie has a brand spanking new collection out in stores today called Garden Fresh that is perfect for all sorts of garden and vegetable related layouts and goodies!  Let’s take a look!


Super CUTE!  I have some ideas for layouts even without having the green thumb, how about you?  This collection is available at all the following Designs by Connie Prince stores:

Ginger Scraps -
Gotta Pixel -
Scrapbook Bytes -

Check back tomorrow for some Creative Team inspirational layouts using Garden Fresh and a little birdie told me that there may even be a freebie from this collection as well! 

In other Connie Prince news, today is the final day of the Gotta Grab It sale at Gotta Pixel.  What does that mean?  It’s the last day to save on the Sassy Sweet Collection! 


You have a couple days left to pick up any or all of Connie’s latest template packs in the Grab A Byte Sale at Scrapbook Bytes.  Don’t let these slip through your fingers!  Four Packs - $1 Each through 4/20/2014.


Today’s freebie is a lovely quick page by Deanna using My World.  I adore the happy colors in this kit and the way Deanna used a lot of paper pieces on this quick page!  Thanks Deanna!


Have a wonderful Good Friday!

We're going on an Egg Hunt!

Can you believe that Easter is almost here??  Boy this month has flown.  Hope you all have filed those income tax returns!! Let's start with the key to last week's challenge!

I don't recall any of the participants finding my little paint splatter on the wall.  That was really just too clever.  It looked like it belonged there!  I did get a few responses for things that were not elements though.  That was interesting.  I don't know about you, but I sure this little challenge.

I mailed out the coupons to those who played. IF you did not get yours, please let me know right away. Someone is using a Spam Filter from Multisymmetric.  I did the thing to prove I am human.. but heck. I have no idea what generated that email... other than the subject line was Lady and the Tramp.  Speaking of coupons -  you all answered the kits correctly and found the minimum number of elements.. so everyone was in the drawing! YAY!!  But only one can win and that is Lisa (no last name for privacy sake).  The two kits I used were Ready for Spring and Project 2014 April: Family Life.

I also included in your emails a download link for a little gift.   You can't download this gift from the blog.   However, if you didn't play last week.. and you really want this.. drop me a note at coyotelady (at) gmail (dot) com.  We'll work something out. Some sort of puzzle.. or layout.  

This week, we are going on an egg hunt!!   Here is your layout with the hidden eggs. Click on the image if you would like to receive a FULL SIZE of the jpg.  I uploaded one to my DropBox.

You have a choice.  You can find me at least 20 of the hidden eggs.  Alternatively, if you find ONE of the two golden eggs I hid..  you're golden - so to speak!!    Those golden eggs aren't easy though.  And after blending and opacity changes, you may not think it is golden.. but they started out that way.. quite lovely actually.  Before going into the layout, they looked like this! Aren't they lovely?

And no geese were harmed in the making of these eggs!    So there you have it!! Find me ONE of the golden eggs.. and you're in the random drawing for the $10 coupon!!  Find me 20 eggs, and you are in the drawing, too!  Play along - you'll get a $1 coupon.  Please submit your entries by Friday, April 18th at 9:00 PM Eastern.   

So.. who is the next Princess for the Princess Frame series?   Leave me a comment!   Until next week.. happy hunting!

April 2014 Gotta Grab It Event: Sassy Sweet

I apologize for the lateness of this post.  I sent it to post over an hour ago and just now got back to check it, only to discover it never posted.

Happy Saturday!!  I am in Sassy Sweet Heaven at the moment.  I just got through opening all the goodies in this month’s Gotta Grab It Collection by Connie and it is amazing!  I’m sorry for all the exclamation marks but if you have someone that is any part sassy or sweet (on in my case a lot of both) you need to check this collection out!  It is absolutely my new favorite.  Let’s take a closer look at all the packs Connie has in this month’s GGI Event Sale.


You can pick up the bundle for only $8.00.  Includes Sassy Sweet Element Pack, Paper Pack, Border Clusters, PreDeco Papers, Extra Papers, Printable Greeting Cards, Clusters, & 12x12 Templates.  You can check it out HERE.

The individual packs are priced from $1.00 – $1.25 through 4/18.  To check out the full collection visit Connie’s Gotta Pixel Store.

Would you like to see what the team has done with this kit.  Here are some of their wonderful layouts!


Great job ladies!  Thank you for sharing your talent with us and inspiring us with the layouts you create.

I hope your weekend is full of adventures and memories.  Mine includes going for haircuts for my family (that is an adventure in itself, believe me!).  Before I head off I have a special freebie that I made with Sassy Sweet.  I’m still learning how to make word art so I hope this is something you can all use.  Have a great Saturday!
