    I so don't feel well. So I'll try to post all the previews and goodies for you all tomorrow but I make no promises and there won't be a list today and we'll have to see about tomorrow. If you need some Freebies go visit Ikea or Digifree. I haven't finished the preview for the Happy Scrapz kit yet either so that probably won't go up until the 2nd or 3rd. I just want to go back to bed. Don't forget today's freebie posted below!
    Hugs to all,

    September Desktop Jumpstart

    Okay, sorry to be MIA today but I've been designing like crazy and chasing a certain 2 y/o. So I'm going to go ahead and post the Friday freebie a few hours early. I'll try to come back tomorrow with my list but Hubby is off and there's still 2 things I have to do before the 1st.(aka- Saturday-> eeekkk!)
    So without further ado here's a Jumpstart template for your September desktop. I believe it's something like 1152x846 pixels to fit most desktops. Enjoy!
    Sorry, this is no longer available.

    Happy Scrapping!
    P.S. Wait until you see everything I've been working on!!
    P.P.S. As Suzy pointed out it's a template, so you could even take off the calendar or change it to a different month- whoopee!

    Hump Day

    Hi all! This is again going to be brief because I just volunteered myself to make something that has to be ready by the first of the month so if you don't see much of me for the next couple days you'll know why. Luckily, you'll only have to wait a few days to find out what I'm working on, but sadly that means I have to work all the harder. (Sleep? What's that?)

    Here's a cute little something I made yesterday while playing around in photoshop:
    Doesn't Emma a cute little pixie?

    ... so little time. It's that end of the month rush for me; getting my MK contribution in, challenge kits completed and such. Also tonight is Emma's Back-To-School night so I'll be running off to that shortly. Ever notice there aren't enough hours in the day? That seems to be a theme in my life lately.

    I don't have much today except a really cute photo of Emma on her bouncer:
    She always is naked in the house, she gets inside and strips. We have a deal where she has to wear a diaper or panties inside and clothes outside, other than that I don't care. But notice her feet aren't touching the floor and her hair is flying? I love this shot!

    BAM! It's Friday Freebie time!

    Okay, so I'm a bit overly excited about today's Friday Freebie but I like it, now just to find the time to scrap with it.

    Now then, here's an example of some photo overlays/templates I've been fooling around with. Let me know what you think. If you really like them I saw a similar freebie HERE. I think I need to go more drastic and stay along the scratch lines for the big distressing but I'm just fiddling around at this point. So let me know your thoughts, subtle distressing or really grunge up the photo? I like Tash, Caro & Talita ones better right now but I'll keep working on mine until I'm happy with them, maybe make some different shapes too.
    Okay here's today's freebie. I was inspired by the comic book I was reading at the time. I figure it'll be good for just about any action LO. You can always change the shape under the journaling to make it fit the theme better. Enjoy!
    Sorry, this is no longer available.

    Happy Scrapping Everyone!

    P.S. If you stop by DBD tomorrow for the Super Saturday Sale, my kit Emma's Hat will be 50% off. That's just $2 for one day only!

    Thursday, August 23, 2007

    Ta-da, it's Thursday!

    So it's Thursday and believe it or not, I already have your Friday freebie all done and ready for tomorrow. The preview is made, it's even been uploaded to 4share... and you have to wait one whole more day to get it. I'm so mean. But here's a hint so you'll come back tomorrow... it's a Jumpstart. I think it's pretty cool looking, but then I'm biased on the subject.
    I also had an inspiring moment for some new collections of Jumpstarts today so be on the lookout for them in the next couple weeks. Oh I'm so excited.
    If you all ever have any suggestions for a Jumpstarts or a kit you'd like me to design feel free to let me know, either comment on here or email me. I can't promise to make them all, I do have a very demanding 3 y/o, but I will make you all some freebies from the ones that really spark my imagination.

    So Emma's preschool class is doing colors. This week was Red, they're going thru the rainbow first then the "other" colors. So Emma has been bringing home Red artwork this week. Today they were learning how to use their safety scissors and how to paste. It's a great-gobbly of a mess and I love it!

    Okay, let's see if there's any freebies out there today:
    Kris has a cute little Embarrassing mini kit.
    Jill has a cute sampler of her new kit Sweet and Sassy.
    (She also has a generous blog coupon for her whole shop.)
    Krista has a beautiful mini kit called Good News up for grabs.
    Princess Pam has a School Kit up. (Grab part 1 & 2)
    Sarah has a template on her blog.
    Kathryn has a couple of extra elements from her Kindergarten Kisses kit up.
    (2 very cool frames & more.)
    Val made a cool cluster frame.
    Angelica has a cute mini kit called Pale Blossom for you.
    Tabrizia has a lovely template on her blog.
    Acorn Designs has part 2 of their Dogwood kit up.
    Aaron has a cool template on his blog for you.
    Tracy has a cool mini kit called Crumpled part 1 on her blog, I assume parts 2-8 will soon follow.
    As always remember to share some love when you snag those freebies!

    Happy Scrapping y'all!

    P.S. Don't forget to scroll down if you missed yesterday's goodie or to come back tomorrow fro the Friday freebie!

    P.S. Thank you to everyone who's tagged me a Rocking Girl Blogger. (And that there's more than one makes me get all teary.) I'll try to find time to pass it along but with the little one around free time is usually spent with her. So thanks to all you ladies- You Rock Too!

    Busy little bees...

    So we started catching up on house work yesterday and it's still continuing today. Emma doesn't want to nap and I'm baby sitting her little buddy Kullan here shortly. I did manage to get my ADSR challenge #11 done. It turned out really great! It's on our Super Scraps Team blog if you want to take a peek.

    Okay here's your little goodie I promised you all it's a circle so it can stand alone or be used as a frame, who knows. This coordinates with the flowered ricrac I gave out in May for Jessica's b-day, enjoy!
    Sorry, this is no longer available.

    Hopefully Emma will crash early tonight so I can come back and freebie hunt for you and me!

    Happy Scrapping!

    Tuesday, August 21, 2007

    I'm not really here.

    This is only an illusion. Hubby is off today and we're catching up on house work and spending family time so there'll be no list today. Go check out the Ikea Goddess or Digi-Free (they both have previews on their lists) for your freebie fix, if you really need it. Otherwise, I'll be back tomorrow...and I'll have a little goodie for you!

    Happy Scrapping!

    P.S. Little over a week of the month left, get cracking on those challenges everyone! Over at Happy Scrapz or at DigiByDesign.

    Okay, I'm really here today.

    Sorry about yesterday but it was a long day. I didn't get home until 3 am then had to get the munchkin up at 7am to go to her first day of school. I came home and napped and felt more tired when I woke up to go get her. Then for most of the day Emma clung to me. I guess she missed her mommy while I was gone. But hubby said she did very well for him so it was good. I had a great time at the reunion and saw just about everyone I had hoped would be there. So it was fun but I'm glad I'm back home. Now to get my schedule back because I'm still tired and I napped with Emma yesterday and slept fairly well last night.

    Here's a photo of Emma in her first day of school! ( This is when we picked her up because a certain tired mommy forgot in the morning.)
    Oh and for those of you designers out there I've added a commercial use item to my shop. It's a calendar set for 2008. It's made at 8.5x11 inch at 300 DPI but easily resized smaller for any need you want. I included the PSD file in addition to the individual PNGs, so it's very versatile for many different looks.
    You can find them HERE in my DBD shop.

    Okay, let's go find us some freebies!
    Lisa has 2 cute Wild West bragbook size QPs.
    Jill has a second freebie from her My Favorite Boy kit up for grabs.

    I'm back!

    Hi everyone! I made it back but with delayed flights I'm so tired. I'll try to come back later but Emma won"t let mommy go, it's tough to type with that kind of "help". TTYL! And I have some cute photos to share!

    Friday, August 10, 2007

    Quick list!

    Hi everyone. I'm all packed and ready to go tomorrow so I figured I'd pop on and tell you about the freebies I know about. I didn't go on a hunt today but in trolling the web doing stuff and visiting some friends blogs I've run into some good ones!

    First is her before we went to preschool orientation yesterday.
    ANd this is her later when she wouldn't take off her "kitty" backpack. It's hello Kitty on it and we made it into a diaper/school bag since she's supposed to bring diapers/undies and a change of clothes to school.
    Happy scrapping, & see y'all next week!

    P.S. Yes, Emma loved the "nunder" storms we had yesterday.

    Thursday, August 09, 2007


    Okay like I said yesterday I know technically I need to leave in less than 48 hrs but have I washed all my clothes? Gathered up from the far corners of the house the gifts I'm bringing? Packed anything? NO! Emma decided it's hardcore potty training time. She's doing really well considering too, last night she came to me asked to go and sat down and went! I was so proud! And that's taking a lot of my time. (Tee-hee hubby has to do it this weekend.) Then we had orientation this morning and now I'm having to fill out forms and go buy supplies since I won't be here this weekend to get them all done. UGH! So I know for a fact I won't be posting tomorrow (Okay, there's a slim chance I might get everything done but let's not set our hopes on it.) and I don't know if I'll have the time to even freebie hunt today. However to make up for that I'm going to give you this week's Friday Freebie a day early (aka- today) and give you a few freebie links that you can check out for yourself.

    Fisrt here's the Friday Freebie a little early. It's a 4x6 bragbook Jumpstart template. I hope you enjoy it!
    Sorry, this is no longer available.

    If you like the 4x6 templates I have a new collection of Jumpstarts in the shop. It's a set of 6- 4x6 templates great for sharing your photos with family and friends.
    You can fine Jumpstarts bragbook collection No. 2 in my shop at DBD!

    And here's a few links to other freebie lists: (Not as cool as my own but they'll do when in need of a fix.)
    Ikea Goddess- She won't be back until Sunday 8/12, but I love her list
    Selena- Good list, but no previews or descriptions so you have no clue what you'll find
    Digifree- has previews but is run by a computer program, so it lists all it can find and they have to be obvious to the search engine to be picked up on the list. (Personally, I think that's so cool.)

    I finished my ADSR challenge #8! Go take a peek on the Super Scraps Team blog, you might find it work a looking!

    I will try to get back with a list later but there's a wicked set of thunder storms comming thru and we've already lost power once. If nothing else I'll see you all on Tuesday 8/14!

    Happy Scrapping!

    P.S. When I get back I'm going thru and clearing out my 4share account. (I had to delete a few just to upload this today.) So look back over the last few months in case you didn't grab something because they'll be gone really soon!

    Is it Wednesday already?

    Count Down:
    3 days to Cali, 6 until preschool

    I know I said yesterday was Tuesday but that it's Wednesday and I still have so much to do before I leave at the crack of dawn on Saturday is astounding to me. On the upside I've got the Friday freebie all done and I'll probably put it up tomorrow just so I don't have to think about it then. I've also finished my latest goodie for the shop but now I need to go thru and double check and package it all up. Hopefully that will be done before I leave too.
    Oh and I posted the challenge #7 of the ADSR over on the Super Scraps Team blog if you want to take a peek.

    Let's go see some freebies!

    Kim B. made a neat-o kit called Hibiscus Heat HERE and some add-on papers HERE.

    Ruby has a sweet template up.
    Sarah also has a neat template on her blog.

    It's Tuesday! -just thought you should know

    Count down:
    4 days until California, 7 days until preschool!

    Hi everyone! We've had a super hot day here! It's currently 105F on my front porch so we've been hiding inside. This morning we went to Chick-fil-a for brunch then did our good deed of buying cat food for the 2 kittens our little buddy Kullan and his mom rescued. She's undecided as to if they'll keep them or give them away but at least I know they won't starve or be out in this super hot weather. (It's supposed to get to 110 tomorrow- ugh.)

    Yesterday I had fun working on challenge number 7 of the ADSR with my partner. We did a photo swap kind of challenge. You picked the bkgd, photos and placement then sent it off to your partner for embellishment. Hers is up on the Super Scraps blog (The one I embellished.) but I'm waiting for her to send me the full list of credits on mine prior to me posting the one of Emma.

    Oh yes, and all 4 challenges are now up at Happy Scrapz! So you can go get the Grab Bag full of goodies if you want and check out the surprise challenge too! (Not to mention the template and font challenges or the super cool kit you get for completing all 4.)

    Now then let's go find some freebies:
    Janidee has Country Charm (Green) up for grabs.
    Anita has started a beautiful new kit Just a Whisper and she's got a QP and papers up.
    Miss Vivi has a Blue Moka kit for you.
    Krista has a Heartfelt mini kit on her blog.
    SM has a whole slew of elements up for grabs including some killer embroidered stuff.
    Valinda has a paper pack up in nice earth tones.
    Lindsay Jane has a template on her blog.
    Heather has an alpha for you.
    Princess Pam has the elements up for her Kiss Me kit.
    Gina has some neat antique photo borders up.
    Rose Made Designs has some sweet papers called Peabody up for grabs.
    Remember to share the love!

    Happy Scrapping!

    Whew, what a weekend!

    Okay, to start off with let me say this weekend shopping was an adventure. It was the tax free weekend for back to school shopping in my town. So clothes & school supplies were tax free Fri-Sun. That meant that kids and parents were out enforce fighting over the last top in a certain size or the last backpack with High School Musical on it. Luckily my kid had easier needs like large washable crayons and toddler size clothes so there was no fighting but since I didn't venture out until Sunday afternoon the pickings were still a bit slim. I know you were laughing at my kid's preschool having a dress code but it's a preschool-12th grade private school and they enforce the same dress code for everyone. Plus Miss Emma just went thru another growth spurt so some clothes that still had room a month or two ago look like they're painted on her now. She's HUGE! I'm talking 5T-6x size clothes for my 2 y/o! (Yes, I know 3 is approaching but we're not there yet!)
    She needs to catch onto this potty training thing quick too or I won't be able to find diapers that fit her anymore.

    Church yesterday was fun too! We had our first service in the chapel rather than the church itself and it gave us a more intimate feeling of togetherness. (I go to the early service and there aren't a lot of us, so the smaller space is a better fit.) Plus one of our members had family in town and they're a Christian rock band so they preformed a few songs for us too! They were awesome! (Especially since she sang while holding her grumpy 1 y/o on her hip and playing a tambourine- impressive.) Also one of the other moms gave me a cool book for Emma and I. It's a year of devotionals for preschoolers. Every day has a small story with cute illustration, followed by a scripture quote and prayer all the perfect size for a preschooler to say and understand. I love it! Emma loves looking at the pictures last night and even said her full prayers for once without being distracted!

    I've been working on some new templates and if I find the time this week I'll be sahring some with you all but knowing how busy I am you might have to wait until next week. We'll just have to play it by ear.

    I found a cool site for finding freebies. This lady has set up her computer to search out freebies and automatically post them to her blog, how cool is that? You can find here list, with previews here at Digifree!

    Oh and at the request of my Dadoo I redid the word art quote about best friends with the word sorry so as to be less offensive, mind you it was a quote not my own words but if you'd prefer paddling after your friend's "sorry butt" better you can grab it HERE. I just threw in the new one with the old and a little something extra. enjoy!

    Now let's freebie hunt!
    Anita has all of her Sweet and Sassy kit up now if you want to go grab it.
    Janidee has her Country Charm (Rose) up for grabs.

    1 week and counting!

    Let me start off again for being so sporadic for the past few days. It seems that our McAfee's had a bad update which made it impossible to connect to the web. Now they realized this and posted an update that fixed it on their site but if you can't get there how can you fix it? So we had to uninstall and reinstall the stupid thing and then do all the updates except the bad one. Ugh! It took forever for hubby to figure out exactly what was wrong and then fix it and then we didn't go to the site so the stupid automatic update did it to us again so we had to uninstall/reinstall again and this time was when we went to their site and found out what was going wrong. What a headache.

    I see that the marvelous Ikea Goddess is on vacation for a week, so I will strive to make sure we have a daily list but since I leave for my own vacation on Saturday the 11th at the crack of dawn I have my own list of real life chores that have to be done this week first. Plus since she doesn't get back until the 12th that means there'll be no list on either site for the 11th. I'll be heading out to California for my HS reunion. Also Emma starts preschool on Tuesday the 14th and we have orientation and school shopping to do. (What shopping does a preschool have you ask- well there's the dress code that I need to make sure she can meet, and a small list of school supplies too) UGH I'm going to be super busy.

    I've finished the 6th challenge of the ADSR and I must say this one really made me flex my scrapping muscles. Head on over to the Super Scraps Team blog to check out the LO, Cute as a Button!

    It's the Grand Opening of DigiShopResources this weekend. The whole shop is commercial OK and it's all 30% off. Then they have 10 commercial use grab bags for $2.50 each. Head on over and check them out!

    I have a new mini kit in the shop at DigiByDesign just for the month of August! It's called Watermelon Kisses and will be there for a limited time only and then will disappear. It's the perfect size to do just 1-2 scrap pages and full of bright and fun colors. Grab it quick before it's gone!

    Now let's go find us some freebies!
    Janidee has done it again! She made these killer build a birthday cupcakes and then kept going with a set of frames, an alpha and some papers. It's great stuff go grab them all, I am!
    Cinzia has an add-on for her Beauty kit up for grabs.
    Miss Mint has her new monthly kit Foxy Lady for you.

    Happy Scrapping y'all!

    Experiencing technical difficulties

    I haven't been able to get online all day. It's a browser software problem and hubby has it fixed so I could pop on, but he wants to mess around and find out what happened and fix it and stuff. So there won't be a list today and we'll have to play tomorrow by ear because I have no clue how long the "fixing" will take. My email is fine so if you need me drop me a line.

    We took Emma to get her photo taken today and here a few of the good shots.
    I finished my 5th challenge for the ADSR and you can see/read it on the Super Scraps Team blog. It was a journaling challenge so a bit more to read than most of my LOs.

    Oh and my new challenges are up at Happy Scrapz and my Quote Challenge at DBD. Head on over to see what I've challenged you to do. Here's a look at the goodies you can grab now (template) or earn by completing the challenges:

    Template Challenge- HS

    Challenge incentive kit for all 4 challenges at HS
    Challenge incentive kit for completing quote challenge at DBD

    And the new mega kit at DBD is out, Going to the Chapel. It's huge!! Just a few shy of 100 papers and over 250 elements! (It's 26 zips!) It's gorgeous and great for any romantic layouts in addition to all the wedding stuff in the kit. Go grab while it's on sale for just $3.99!

    Happy Scrapping!
