Freebie Quick Pages from Paisley Passion

I have made another Quick Page for you. Your response to this kit has been so awesome! I feel inspired by all your wonderful comments. Thank you so much for each and every one of them. As a new designer, I can't begin to tell you how much this means to me! You can pick up this QP by clicking HERE.

I was also very surprised and honored when Giovana Samara (aka MsRed) asked me if she could make a couple QP's with my kit "Paisley Passion". Of course I jumped on the offer and just look at what she has made for YOU!

What a talented lady and beautiful layouts! You can pick these up (without the pics) on her blog Pink Satin Sashes. Thank you, thank you Giovana! Anyone else want to send me your layouts?

Finally! My Paisley Passion FREEBIE kit!

I have to share what happened last night. I came home from work with plans on finishing the kit previews and uploading to 4-shared. I walked in the door and my husband was sitting on the couch waiting for me dressed in a suit and tie. Now keep in mind he is a truck driver and I only see him in a suit and tie for weddings and funerals. The last time was approximately a year and a half ago. I threw my purse down on the floor and my heart was beating fast. I looked at him dumbfounded and had all kinds of horrible things going through my head. As soon as I found my voice I asked him, "What's going on? What happened? Oh no! What?" He started grinning then and said, "What? Can't a man dress up and take his wife to dinner and a movie?" After I recovered I told him how wonderful looked and that he sure cleans up well! ROTFLMAO! I automatically assumed it couldn't be good news when I saw him! Poor guy! But I changed real quick into a jacket and spiffed up my makeup (before he got uncomfortable and changed his mind). He took me to Red Lobster where I pigged out on the Ultimate Feast. For those of you who don't know, the "Feast" includes Snow King Crab legs, Rock Lobster tail, Shrimp Scampi, and breaded fried shrimp! Of course you can't forget the salad, baked potato, and those yummy biscuits that came with it. Then we went to see a new movie that is out. Now this movie is not something I would usually go for (lots of blood, guts, and gore) but it came with these COOL 3-D glasses. If you have watched the previews that are showing on TV right now you probably know that I am talking about "My Bloody Valentine". LOL! Oh my goodness! But it was really cool to see a 3D movie! There were scenes where it looked like the actor was spitting into the audience, broken tree branch and glass flying at you, a bloody hand dripping blood on the audience, fire, bullets, and so much more!!! Got to tell you, I really enjoyed it! If it wasn't for the 3D though I would never have gone as I am definitely a chick flick, drama or comedy kind of movie watcher. Has anyone else seen this movie yet? So I REALLY had a wonderful date night with my man. We really need to do this more often! Especially so I don't have a heart attack when I see him all dressed up! ROTFL!!! Oh my goodness!!!! LOL!
Well...I finally managed to finish my newest kit "Paisley Passion". I hope it was worth the wait! This was really fun to work on and I hope you enjoy it! Let me know what you think! And please show me some layouts that you make with it so I can share them here on my blog. It's so amazing to see what each person's creativity can make with a kit.
This kit includes:
25 Papers and 65 Elements (Not all the elements are shown in the preview)
Dropshadows are only on the previews, not the actual elements.
I had fun learning how to make curled edges on papers. That was something I have wanted to learn for a long time. REMEMBER to download all 5 links. This kit is huge and I had to break it up. Here are the links:

Happy New Year!!

Wow! Can you believe the holidays are finally over? Don't get me wrong, Christmas is my favorite holiday, but when retailer's have decorations up right after Halloween along with all of the ensuing holiday madness, it takes a lot of the specialness out of "THE" day. I am ready to get back to the "everyday" existence for awhile.

It was a busy Christmas for us. We attended 5 get-togethers in 3 days. We were able to see all the grandchildren and our families on both sides. Of course we also had a 4 hour trip to get up to north Missouri and 4 hours back home. We left on Christmas Eve after I got off work and returned home the evening of the 26th. Just in time for me to get to bed so I could go to work again! It was crazy but it sure was nice to be able to see ALL of our family for Christmas.

Now it's a brand new year and I have noticed that I have put on some extra pounds over the past few months. The "Fat Fairy" waved her magic wand and...POOF!...I am fluffy! I am going to try to make an honest effort to lose some of that. I am going to eat sensibly and lose a few pounds before I start trying to exercise. Because these "ole" bones of mine are creaking and I think they might revolt if I try to exert a lot of pressure on them. I know it would probably help to lose weight faster if I could do both but....I'll let you know if it works.

I have been working on some new stuff for you! I know it has been awhile since I have shared a freebie with you, so I hope you will forgive me. Here is a sneak preview of what I am working on. Check it out! I have learned how to do page curls! I think they are so cool!!! I think I'm going to call it "Paisley Passion". I am going to try to make some elements that will also tie it in to Valentine's Day. Some hearts, etc. Do you have any special requests for elements? I will try to accomodate any requests you might have. Let me know what you think!
