Our Blog Gone Viral


Thanks to everyone who has visited our blog!
It is exciting to talk and chat with so many different people,
 from so many different places, with so many different backgrounds.

The reason I originally started this blog was to document our family's simple moments in life.
Since being called to the YW I have found so much joy in my calling and serving the youth.
I have also found enjoyment from serving other 
young women organizations by sharing some of my simple ideas.

Everything I do on my blog is free to download and free to use in share!
I just ask that you be kind and give credit where credit is due.

If you have any questions or comments please don't hesitate to contact me!
If you like what you see, you can also follow my blog!

I look forward to following your blog! (P.S. The bloom where you are planted stuff is SO CUTE! If we hadn't already planned ours I would've totally done the same! Every detail was perfect!)

  6. Thank you so much for these cute bookmarks. It puts everything together, and I am handing them out to the YW tomorrow. You are awesome for sharing them. I am on a Mac as well, and our desktop publishing program isn't working anymore. What do you use to create all of your cute handouts?

    1. Tracy I am so glad that you were able to use the bookmarks! I actually use a combination of programs just depending on what i am trying to make and how much time I have. I have found illustrator to be great, but I also found an online website called picmonkey.com. Again, I use both for different purposes, but both are really user friendly! Good luck with your young women and please let me know if you need anything else!

  15. Thank you so much for all of the ideas and printables! I am wanting to make the New Beginnings poster size for our event coming up. Is there a way to get a higher resolution download so that I can make it as large as the one you have? Or did you use the resolution you have it in for you poster? If so, it looks like yours turned out ok, so i can just use that. Please let me know.
    Thanks so much!

  16. Hi I would love to do this for our YW, what a wonderful idea. I cannot for the life of me figure out how to edit this to change the date and invite info. Can you please share? Also, on one of my computers I cannot even pull up the downloads, do I need a certain program. I would appreciate any advice you can give me. Thank you!

  17. Hi I am so in love with this idea, I would love to use it for our YW. I am just curious I am having trouble figuring out how to edit it. I have a few computers that I use my iMac won't even display anything when I click on the link, do I need a certain program to run it? Also, How do I edit it? Did you just upload your images to a photo print place? You did an amazing job. I am new at this stuff and any help is much appreciated. Thanks for your time and effort.

    1. I am so sorry! Since doing this activity, my computer crashed and I lost all the files! I wish I still had them but I don't! Also, I don't typically make my images editable simply due to the fact that I have run into some issues (people changing the integrity of the designs, plagiarism, etc.)

      I would be more than happy to quickly designs if needed! I would just charge a small $5.00 for the extra time I would be putting into re-creating those images (charging a small fee allows me to continue to provide free images and handouts on my blog!) I hope you can understand! If it is something that you are still interested in you can place your order here (http://www.etsy.com/shop/CourtneyAitkenDesign) and I can send you the files within 48 hours! I would also create them "ready to go" for you with all of your ward's information on it as desired! Let me know if I can help!

  25. The girls in our ward were ABSOLUTELY in LOVE with The Plan of Salvation bookmarks today. They were like, "These are so professional!" I said, "Yep, a great lady with awesome professional talents shares them online, my talent is merely using search engines to find such awesomeness!" You also provided a reason for my 20 month old to learn how to use a glue stick (glue the front to the back). She's also in love with your project, just for different reasons. Thanks for all you do & share. :)
