"Timeless Beauty" FREEBIE Kit Is Ready To Grab / And $5 Down The Toilet Story!

I have finished packaging up "Timeless Beauty" and have it ready for you! I thought this would work great for those Mother's Day layouts you'll be wanting to make. The previews do NOT coincide with the downloads. I have 4 previews but I have 5 downloads for you. I needed to break the papers into four downloads to keep the file size smaller and easier for you to download. So make sure you get them all. The links to download are under the preview pictures. I hope you enjoy this kit and I already have an idea for my next one.

I had a wonderful time this past weekend with two of my grandchildren. This is the first time that they have been allowed to come stay with me for 3 days (200 miles from home). Kendra is 10 and Myles is 6. It rained off and on the whole time they were here but we still managed to get in a picnic at the park in between showers, watched movies, played games, stayed up late (shh...don't tell their Kendra loved learning my Adobe Photoshop Elements. Just a few quick lessons and she was in scrapbook heaven. She managed to make 4 layouts in the time she was here. We also spent 5 hours at Incredible Pizza. For those who aren't familiar with this fun place they have indoor mini-golf, go-karts (Myles and I came in 1st place and he got a ribbon), inflatable jumping play area, and all kinds of games that they won tickets to turn in for prizes. And lets not forget the big buffet! We started out with something to eat, played, went back to buffet for dessert, played, and ended with more food!! There was only one mishap while we were there. You put money on a card that you scan when you play these games. During a restroom break (I was in charge of holding the cards) Myles' card fell in the toilet. Seeing as how it still had $5 left on it I grabbed for it. But these being self-flushing toilets, it whisked it away before I could fish it out! Ewwww! So I literally flushed $5 down the drain. Oh well, I got him another card with $5 on it. Oh the things we do for love (and $5)! LOL!!

New Kit Name "Timeless Beauty" and Another QP FREEBIE

I have decided on the name for my newest kit. Thanks to Ruby's suggestion it will be called "Timeless Beauty". I want to thank each of you who left me a message about Nicole. I appreciate those comments so much. Thanks for reaching out to me. HUGS from me back to you!

I'm sending birthday wishes to my oldest daughter, Jennifer, who just turned 28. She is such a beautiful young woman and doing an amazing job of raising two of my beautiful grandchildren.

I just finished working 11 days in a row and glad to have a chance to relax and work on my scrapbooking. Of course the house needed a good I did some of that, my husband, George, and I got the fence-line in the back of the house cleaned up, planted some tomatoes, we took our dog Roxy to the park and had a picnic lunch. The weather has been perfect and it has been good for me.

I have also made another QP freebie for you. I will let you know when the kit is ready to pick up which should be very, very soon.

Remembering Nicole (2 year Anniversary) & A FREEBIE QP

This is a post that is so hard to do because it marks the day two years ago that we lost my precious niece, Nicole Allen, in an accident caused by a drunk driver. If you read my profile you will see that she is my reason for scrapbooking. It was so senseless that she had to die at 21 years of age because someone thought they had the right to drive drunk. My heart is so heavy, it still feels like it just happened. I hope that everyone thinks twice or three times or more before they EVER get under the wheel of a vehicle under the influence. If you think it won't happen to you, you better think again. It's FOREVER that lives are changed! And for those of you who have also lost a loved one in the same way, my love and prayers go out to you. Sorry this is such a downer for those who just wanted to come and pick up a freebie QP but it is something that weighs heavy on my heart. Nicole's favorite colors were pink and black so I haved used my new (as of yet un-named) kit to make this tribute page for her. God bless you all!

Black Window QP FREEBIE

The weather has been beautiful this week and definitely feels like spring is here. Last week we had to take shelter in the mall I work at because of a tornado warning. They are calling for more storms this weekend. You know the saying...April Showers Bring May Flowers!
This is the companion QP to my Pink Window QP. I will be posting another one for you on either Monday or Tuesday. And until I'm ready to post the full kit, I will be taking suggestions for a name for this kit. I hope you enjoy this one too!

Pink Window QP and a NEW Kit To Name

For those of us living in the United States, today is the deadline for filing our taxes for last year. So I thought it would be an appropriate time to get something for nothing from me. I know I'm not the only one that waited till today to pay our government what they think I owe them. So to help ease the pain of forking over our hard-earned money I thought I'd send a freebie your way.

Here is a preview of my next kit that I am working on. I am hoping that you can help me name this kit since you did such a good job on the last one. I used a soft pink, black and gray color palette for this one. I have included antiques, dried flowers, swirls, lace, embroidery, and a special element that I thought was unique...the window frame from an old house. If you have some ideas please post them in the comments at the end of this post or in my shoutbox in the right-hand margin. I am looking forward to seeing what you clever people come up with. I have 3 QP's already made and I will be posting them for you while I am finishing up this kit and wait for your suggestions.

Hippity Hoppity Bunny Parade FREEBIE Kit is HERE!

My trip north for my granddaughter's birthday turned out well. I had to fight a hard rain for the 4 hour drive. As I was driving I kept wondering when I was going to hit the freezing rain and snow. It turned out that I made it all the way with no freezing precipitation. When I got there I went into Walgreen's to get her birthday card. I was only in there 10 minutes and when I came out the sleet had just started. We went to the YMCA where she had a gymnastics birthday party. They had all the equipment out; trampoline, balance beams, uneven parallel bars, and tumbling mats around the whole gymnasium. They also played Twister, Hula Hoops, and some other games too. The YMCA provided all the decorations, cake, party favors, balloons, and 3 gymnastic coaches too. It was very inexpensive and the kids had SO much fun! Of course, I was there as the "official" photographer. I took something like 200 pics because catching those action shots is very difficult but I did manage to get a few. Grandpa and I bought her the new leotard she wanted so bad! I think she would like to be on the "Flying Ariels" team, which is the Y's traveling competition team. She just started gymnastics 6 months ago and is taking to it like a fish does to water. I can't wait to scrapbook some of these pics. When we came out of the YMCA there was about 3-4 inches of sleet. Overnight we got snow on top of that. However, by the time I left this afternoon, the streets were cleared, the sun was out, and it was melting fast. A beautiful sunny day in the 50's was all I saw on the way home! We have a saying here in Missouri, "If you don't like the weather, stick around it'll change!"
Oh.....are you still here? LOL! Would you like to have my newest freebie kit? I asked for suggestions for a kit name and the winner would receive a gift from me. Well, my husband had a hard time picking out the winner and so I decided to use BOTH ideas! So there are 2 winners, Loosie Goosie suggested Hippity Hoppity and Diane suggested Sweet Bunny Parade. I put them together and came up with "HIPPITY HOPPITY BUNNY PARADE". So congratulations ladies...I will be contacting both of you with a link for a coordinating kit. Thanks everyone so much for all your ideas. I may do this again sometime. I didn't have time to make a preview that shows everything in this kit. But it does include 26 papers and 67 elements. I can't seem to do a small kit! I broke it down into 6 links so it would be easier to download. Make sure you get all 6 links!
