About Me

Heidi Colwell-Morris
Welcome to my little section of the world. This is my haven and escape when life gets to be too stressful.

I am a stay at home mom of 4 boys ages 21, 15, 9, and 3. I have been married for 16 years and live in West Bend, WI.  I got hooked on working with graphics during my Photoshop class while in school for web design. I started out making tournament layouts for an online gaming site and used a lot of scrap kits for them. I came across a digital scrap kit page on facebook one night and decided I could make my own elements and kits instead of using everyone else's. Now I can't stop. There really needs to be a 12 step program for scrappers. 

In my down time I enjoy reading, being outside (when it's not 100 or -0), shopping, and spending time with my family.

Boy have I got a lot of stuff to tell you about. This month I have joined in on the HFD Challenge at Crafty Scraps and this is a challenge you DON'T want to miss if you like Christmas like I do.  Next, Michelle has a store-wide sale going on in her Crafty Scraps Store. You can't miss this, everything is 50% off until Christmas!!! And over in the Forum we have added some new challenges in addition to the old favorites. OK enough talking let's get on with the good stuff.

What exactly is the HFD Challenge? It's Hide Find Design and here's how it works....You will SNAG your 1st pieces from Crafty Scraps Blog. From there she will tell you where the next stop is to find more treasured pieces and so on and so on.... eventually you will be directed back to me and then I will send you to the next person.

After you have collected all the pieces, the last stop will send you to the Forum where you will get the rules and what to do. Basically, you will create one layout using ALL the pieces you find and then post it at the Crafty Scraps Forum. Once that is done you will recieve this HUGE MEGA KIT. It's that easy!

I am proud to announce the birth of my new niece Aubree Angel-Ann. She was born 6 weeks early on October 31, 2012. She weighed 4 lbs 9.7 ozs and was 17 inches long. As of today she is doing amazing and may be able to come home this week. She is quite the little trooper. This little girl is extra special to me because I was able to be in the delivery room and watch her come in to this world. It was an amazing experience to say the least. So be prepared to see lots of layouts of her LOL And here comes the first of many. It was made using a kit called Sweet Pea ~ Girl (also one for boys) by Crafty Scraps.



Here's a preview of the Sweet Pea ~ Boy kit

First I'd like to say to all those being affected by Hurricane Sandy to please stay safe! You are all in my thoughts and prayers. For the rest of us....stay warm LOL It's getting cold out. And with the cold I found this wonderful little kit called My Grungy Wonderland by Sherry's Scpras. It makes want to get on my boots and gloves and go out for a good snowball fight and then come in for some nice hot chocolate. If you like the grungy look or the wintery look then this is the kit for you. Here's what I did with it.....






Here come more freebies to add on to the All Hallow's Eve kit from the Scrap Kit Challenge. This set includes fasteners and some funky frames. My portions this time are bit a smaller than the other ones because I have been so busy. Hopefully I can get myself on a schedule with all of these commitments. Don't forget to head over to our Facebook page to grab all the other wonderful designers kits too.
