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.
