Documenting your life with ADB Designs

Just when I think winter is loosening it's grip on the heartland  ... boom! we get an unexpected snowstorm.  I hope you are staying warm and comfortable where you are and for those folks who are recovering from bad weather, I wish you a speedy and safe clean up! 

Q68 (prompt)

How did you entertain yourself as a child when bad weather kept you indoors?  What did your parents tell you about the bad weather times they experienced?  What do you children or grandchildren do?   Tell the story with words as well as pictures; if you have no pictures, just use words.  The stories we tell ... even of the most mundane activities will captivate those who read them later AND they will know you better as a result.

This week I am featuring my newest collection: WINTER GARDEN.  As a child I lived very near a greenhouse and florist. My best friend was the granddaughter of the owner. When we were bored with dolls or coloring we would visit the shop and play with the pieces of ribbon and the cast off flowers.  I loved the smell of all the flowers. I was constantly amazed by the HUGE boxes of flowers that arrived weekly. As I was working on this new collection, Winter Garden, I was brought back to those memories and the magic of fragrant and beautiful fresh flowers in the middle of winter.





Here are some layouts from my Creative Team to provide inspiration:

Happy scrapping & I would love to see some of your layouts!

Scrappin from A to Z with Kathryn Estry

Hi!  I'm Kathryn, a designer here at My Memories, and I'm back with my A to Z Series.  With every post, I'll show you a style, element, or other scrap secret to make your pages look amazing. The talented ladies on my Creative Team give me plenty of inspirational layouts, and I'm happy to share them with you! 

I know you like FREE scrap supplies, right?  I'll show you a couple of layouts in each of my blogs posts, and I invite you to try some of your own! Post them in my matching Challenge Thread, Scrapping with Kathryn from A to Z. []  Everyone who posts a layout in this month's thread will receive from me the prize I have posted with this month's challenge.  To make it extra sweet, your layout can be about anything I've shown you in ANY of my A to Z challenges!  

X is for ...


I love to design scrapbook kits so much that often I get finished with my kit and just can't stop.  It's those times that my "Extras" come to be.  I may have called them Extras, or Mini Kits, or Extra Elements, but they're all additional pieces to enhance the page kit.  Here are some of my favorite layouts made by my Creative Team ladies using some of my collections with Extras.

Remember to head over to my A to Z Challenge, check out this month's prize, and show me a layout you've made with any of my A to Z ideas.

Documenting your life with ADB Designs!

My goodness it is cold here ... and snowy ... it is February so I should expect this. It is Nebraska and that is another reason not to be surprised.  The kids have had four snow/cold days off from school so far and another could be coming soon.


Did you have "snow days" during your childhood school years?  Did you stay inside and play board games, read a book, watch TV or were you an outdoor adventurer building snow forts and snowmen and throwing snow balls?

My newest collection WINTER FREEZE is perfect for scrapping the photos taken of kids at play both indoors and outdoors. So grab a cup of your favorite hot beverage and get some scrapping done.






And here are some layouts from my Creative Team to inspire you and give you some ideas for scrap lifting.  Also note, the collection is NOT limited to layouts featuring children only. 





Thank you and I would love to see what you create with this collection or any of my designs!
