    Take me out to the ball game!

    So it's summer and that means baseball! (Also softball and t-ball.) I've never been a big fan of baseball. Don't get me wrong, I loved the fun of going to an A's or Giants game with my Daddoo, or even the local AA/AAA (Depending on the year) with friends or family. But I didn't follow any teams or really care who won the World Series. (Except for the Battle of the Bay in 1989 when it was A's vs Giants. I mean you couldn't live in the San Fran area and not get involved in that one.) Here in my little NC town we have a local summer collegiate team, everyone is trying to get us to go see a game but seriously I'm not interested and Emma won't sit still through one. Then they mention the playground. Why would I spend money to take my daughter to a playground at a ball park? I just don't get that. Mind you I'm all for a softball game at a BBQ, just remember I throw like a girl.

    But with all this ball playing in mind, and the fact that my friend who's daughter plays softball and little one is in t-ball asked for it, I made you a lovely Jumpstart template for today's freebie. I hope you all enjoy it!
    download Jumpstarts blog No. 28

    And for those of you looking for the perfect kit to use Christina has a gorgeous mini kit called 7th Inning Stretch for just $2 in the Sophia Sarducci Shoppe:

    I hope to be back during quiet time with a bigger freebie list but here's a few to start you off!
    Kim B. has a Softly Sweet brag book QP & coordinating brag QP on Beth's blog too!
    Manu has a CU Hearts overlay on her blog.
    Denise has her Mango Tango MK part up.
    (Full list of all 24 Mango Tango MK minis HERE.)
    Bethany has some new word art up.
    Maria has some cluster frames.
    Meghan has a fabulous template that's Over the Rainbow!
    WenchdGrafix has a Muted paper pack on her blog.
    Remember to leave some love for these wonderful designers!

    And speaking of love, I want to give a big shout out to my favorite Romance author Shelley Monro! She's such a doll, she's sending me a pressie! Oh the suspense of waiting for it will kill me! She's coming to the US in Aug and I'm sad I don't live in Cali/San Fran anymore so I could meet her in person :(

    Oh and FYI Emma is out of school Aug 2-11, but I'm not. So I have afeeling I will be spending what little time I get on the computer on school work. I may go insane, we'll see.

    Happy Scrapping everyone!

    Thank you for this template! This has been our year for baseball! My youngest son decided he wanted to play on a team (he just turned 13 TODAY!)...he went to Boy Scout camp so ended up only being in town to play in 6 games. lol We've been to the Royals game twice and the T-Bones twice. Wow! Thank you very much!

    LOL - I hope you're not disappointed. The package is on its way. :)

    I'm not a baseball fan because it seems so slow. We play softball down here, and NZ are world champs in this. I'm more of a rugby fan, although that might have something to do with the strapping men running up and down the field. ;) Very inspirational when it comes to writing heroes.
