Freebie Part 3

Hello all,

First off, thanks to those who have left me comments. They are greatly appreciated. It is always nice to know that people are enjoying your work. Sorry I took so long to get back with the final element freebie. I was having a computer issue the other night and nothing wanted to cooperate. But have no fear, I am here to do just that, but first a layout from my apple cider kit.

This layout is about losing the family home. Different than some who may be caught in the current mortgage crisis, this is my childhood home, and now that both of my parents are deceased it goes to the bank. My parents had a reverse mortgage on the house. So while I am lucky as I have my own home, it is still hard to see the house I grew up in and the only home my parents ever had, leave the family. We had so many good times in that house. When I moved out on my own it was always a place I could go back to. Every time I walked through that door I knew I was home. But as the saying goes - Home is where the heart is...

Ok so you have waited patiently - here are the elements...

Hope you enjoy. Make sure to come back - I am working on a couple of quick pages. I will also be reposting these as part of the ADS blog train in December.

Early Christmas Freebie Part 2

Hi Everyone,

I was glad to see that digifree picked me back up. Though the service is still acting weird, because I am not getting notification that they have. No biggie. At least you all can find me now.

I hope you liked the papers, I know a couple of you did, as you said so. Thank you for the comments. Always good to hear. I really enjoyed working with this color combo. A little bit different than the normal Christmas colors. Please link back here if you use them in your layouts. I would love to see my kits used in layouts other than my own.

Okay - enough chatting - here is your freebie. I know this doesn't look too thrilling, but I realized the paper download was a beast. So I have split up the elements into a more reasonable format. So this download is just ribbons and bows. But check back, I will be posting the other elements in the next day or two and since I am still working with these colors, this kit could go on and on...

All comments read and appreciated. If you read my blog, you know how to get this - click the preview. Enjoy!

Early Christmas

For some reason I am done with autumn scrapbooking. Seems as though I have been using autumn colors since August. I am ready to move on.

I have decided to use this color pallet for my next kit.

I like these colors together. I have been creating all kinds of things. I decided to post it differently this time. The fall kit I did, was not picked up by digifree. I am not sure what the problem is, but I was disappointed. As a result, I am going to post the parts of this kit seperately.

Sooo I am posting the papers today. If you like them, check back, I will be posting the other pieces soon. Love to hear from you if you like it. Also, if you have made layouts using my kits, I would love to know about it. I will be glad to post them here.

Fall Freebie

I tried my hand again at creating a kit. I do find it relaxing. I like the colors of this kit. I purchased a set of swatches from digiapedesigns. The holiday pallet has great color combinations. This one is called apple cider. I really like the rich fall colors. I designed a couple of tags for this kit. I had fun doing them. I may try my hand at a few more, stay tuned.

Well I am going to go finish getting supper ready - I have a baseball game to watch tonight. I hope everyone enjoys the freebie. Leave some love!

Been a While...

Busy, Busy, Busy and Digi Stores

I haven't been on in quite a while. I have been very very busy with work and things. I have managed to find time to do some layouts, you can check them out at I really like this site. I have even tried to become a Supreme Team Member, but I think it is kind of like school - they have cliques. Still the challenges definitely inspire.

While reading some of my favorite blogs, I came across Sweet Shoppe Designs, I love it. There is a designer there that does blog layouts. She is to be thanked for the updated layout I now have here. I also discovered it was another place to find Misty Cato. I really love her stuff. Stocked up on some. The designer that I have to thank for my blog update is Zoe Pearn. She has some real nice stuff. She also partners with others to create some fabulous kits. Go to the shop and check it out. You won't be disappointed.

Charity Starts at Home

My family and I did a walk for Hopice at the end of September. They were instrumental in allowing my Mom to be home in the end. So to thank them, we walk and raise money. This year it was a little wet... but still worth it. Here is a layout that I did of the group from the walk.

This was our 2nd year walking. We raised about $3800.00. Less than last year, but still ok.

Our goal is to do this every year, as long as we are still around. A local paper wrote an article about my family and our walk. You can find it here.

The Economy

So who out there is worried? I have a small pension fund that lost 1/4 of its value when I checked it last at the end of September. I am not sure it even exists anymore. I am thankful that my husband and I are still employed. But with 2 kids approaching college in the next couple of years, there are worries.

Well I must go for now. I will check back this weekend and post a freebie I have been working on. Again thanks to Zoe for my new blog layout.
