The credits for this header go strictly to Anita over at Nana's attic. I used her wonderful Rainbow kit freebie. Which is no longer available on her page. BUT she has lots of other fabulous freebies for you to see and download.

A list, and a plea

K, first of all, I decided to post a list today, why, well because I have decided I love freebie hunting. So even though Selena is back I am gonna try to keep up with listing. I guess I went and got addicted.

Secondly, I am sending out a PLEA, to all you lovely designers, we cut over 5 inches off my two year olds hair last night. This was really her first hair cut, more than just a bang trim. I REALLY need some elements to go along with this theme. ANYONE of you lovely ladies willing to help me out. Even if you have a inexpensive kit in a store PLEASE direct me to it. I can’t spend a lot of money right now because we are trying to move, but I have to scrap this drastic new hair do. I love it.

Third, swing by my gallery and look at my new pages I did using Anita’s sweet attitude freebie. I think they turned out well.

Julia part one, this pink and brown kit is as unique as it is lovely. Its great

you are my sunshine kit. LOVE this too

look at this deco border

very cute qp here

floral paper

couple cute papers

ooooooooh I like these “rise up” papers

New freebie, this time its word art

new list

HI ladies. I have a short list up for now. I hope to get back later but we will see. Be sure to check this out. These are all fab. I love them all. Though my find of the day I can’t even pick just one, so I chose TWO.

First off its:

Anita’s done it again! I love this sweet attitude, Im planning my uses allready!

And secondly its this.

OMG look at this lovely new mega kit, be SURE to get this

The order for these is strictly how I found them. I love them both.

adorable bandaids

another great alpha, this time for Josh’s kit

scroll down for a great sampler from her new kit

baby blue mini kit



Update allready

wow, I found this through Julies forum, look at these fab kits, and they’re ALL free

check out her whole blog, I posted her soft whispers yesterday, but man there is a a LOT of great stuff here.

scroll for her great freebie kit with monster trucks

A response

Ok, first of all, to all of you who left me comments about what happened with Laura's site maybe I could have shown a bit more tact. BUT it was two am.
For the comment about older more mature people staying out of it, because they have faced real life loss, etc, that annoyed me. You have NO idea what I have been through in my life, what losses I have faced or anything else. Only two years ago my heart was broken into a million pieces when I lost someone I couldn't have loved any more than I did.
I am glad for everyone who comes by my blog, to check out my freebies and my list. But at the same time this is my blog. I can say whatever I want. thats why they exist. Sorry, but if you don't like it, then don't come by. Really its that simple. Especially when you respond and don't even say who you are, just leave an anonymous note.
I was angry that someone had taken advantage of Laura and stolen from her. As she said she lost 400 dollars from that theft. If it wasn't on the internet the person could have been arrested and gone to jail. And because of that theft Laura has chosen to not give out any more freebies. That is a loss to all of us.
Anyways, thats all I have to say for now. I have my real life to get back to, including my two kids. Come back for a list later if you want.

Sunday, July 22, 2007

A little angry, and a list

Ok, first of all, if whoever is reading this is Laura’s theif, you SUCK. I can’t believe someone would do such a thing. She went out of her way to give us great freebies and you took advantage of her.

Next, I am sooo busy reading that new book, I don’t even want to put it down. BUT I thought I would compile a quick list tonight. Be sure to check it out. There is a LOT of great stuff out there tonight.

this new kit is great, its called soft whispers

another great kit, this is called flower fun

last part of her it can be found here

a pink alpha, similar to her brady one

home sweet home kit

baby blues qp

picnic papers, these rock

abstract frames here, look at these

this 8x8 mini album is great

OMG if you have kids and go to the zoo, GET this great freebie

scroll down for amy’s wizardry freebie.

Freebie!!! Animal tracks.

Ok, so tonight I was thinking about scrapping some zoo pages, and then I realized that most of the tracks I had were for animals that my zoo simply doesn't have. So, I decided to remedy that and I created my own. The preview only shows the finalized product, but I also have each print in black without any embossing done. That way you can do your own if you so choose.
I LOVE these. I think they came out great and are very useful to most of us. If you like it, grab it, and let me know what you think.
Oh and I also like the bear. I was playing and playing and thats what I came up with.
To get it just click on the image.

AN announcement, Harry Potter, and a list

K first of all if any of you missed it. I MADE Mindy's CT. YAY. I am way too excited about this. I have known for awhile but was waiting for the official announcement. I am soooo very excited. Though I am still not entirely sure what this entails. Mindy's CT call was the first one I have REALLY wanted to partake in so I gave it a shot, and I got it. YAY. I LOVE her stuff.
So, tonight I decided at like 8 pm that i HAD to have the newest HP book at midnight. I dont know why. I am no fanatic, yes I have read all six books, but I'm not obsessed. I think they are great but thats it. So at work I got all excited and decided after work I would head out to get the book. And thats what I did.
I got to Meijer and the line went halfway around the store, so I asked a cashier how many they had and was told 4 palletes, which was close to 800 books. Ok, I knew I wasn't THAT far back in line so I went ahead and waited. The line started moving just after midnight and I had my book by 12:15. Then they were having a HUGE sale on my favorite cereal, cinnamon life so I went and got 5 boxes of that lol. I did a bit more shopping and then got in line. 45 minutes after that I was out the door with my book.
YAY, oh and while in line I read the first 35 pages of the book. I can NOT wait to finish this. I am allready in it hook line and sinker. We only got one copy, so I get to read it first, then my hubby.
Ok so the list is SMALL but its good. Check it out

OMG I LOVE this alpha, I want it in pink too

this star mini is cute

note papers pieces

that weird name kit continues, I cant type the name lol but I LOVE the kit

An update and a list

Okay, I have NO idea what happened to the first half of my blog. I had started out telling you that from now on, due to a realization that the comp has started to become an addiction that I sometimes put before my kids, I will be cutting way back on comp time. I intend to continue making a list at least until Selena is back full time, but from here on out I will be doing it at night when I get home from work. Generally this is about 11:30 pm.

There are downsides to this of course. But one positive is that, for all of the ladies who post their freebies in the evening, they will make it to my list before making it to most other peoples. And for all the night owls out there they can check my list late and find all sorts of new stuff. And for the early birds too, you will be looking at a more current list.

Also, I have begun the fun, yet daunting task of homeschooling my 2.5 year old daughter. I know shes is young, but we are only doing an hour or so a day, at her pace. And she is SMART. My hubby and I jokingly call her a super genius, but she’s BRIGHT. She amazes everyone she comes into contact with. My pediatrician raves about her intelligence even. She has been speaking in sentences since 18 mos, and now can easily speak in 8-9 word sentences, knows all her colors and shapes, can count to 15, sometimes 25 lol, and knows about 8 letters by sight. So this too is taking up a lot of my time.

And now without further adieu

The List

reve de start part two

another one of her great templates. I love these.

princess pamela also has a great template up.

my sweet baby boy paper packs, even if you don’t have a baby, or you have a baby girl check out the papers, the colors are nice

this pure sunshine mini kit it great. And the word art is the best part in my opinion

pillowgirls added 10 new freebies to her gallery

Not a list, or a freebie, but a layout

So tonight I was over at Pillowgirl's blog, because my google reader hadn't listed any updates on her page recently and I was curious to see how she was doing. And when I got there she was saying how we are her inspiration for new freebies, and that our comments make her really happy. She also put in a very sweet request to see some of our work, using her HARD work.
Well, it made me realize that despite the fact that almost everything she does I have to have, and I have to have it NOW, I had never used any of it. Not one bit.
I didn't like that thought, so I opened up photoshop and I got to work. This layout is the result. I LOVE the colors she used, and the way they work with these photos seems perfect to me, almost like she had looked at my photos before designing lol. That's just her talent coming through. The colors are so natural and amazing, they could be used in a thousand ways.
Anyways lol, before I go on and on about how talented she is, I'll stop on that line of thought lol. She ranks up there as one of my absolute favorite designers, I will say that though. AND she does this all for free! So, be sure to swing by her blog (link to your right) and check out her freebie gallery to make sure you have it all. While you are there, leave her some thoughts and prayers, she's got some family stuff going on that she mentions on her blog. So be SURE to take the time to say thanks for her great work too.
Anyways, I really am done now. Just thought I would share this with everyone. I love how my layout turned out. What do you ladies think?
Credits : Pillowgirl for all of the papers and elements
and Fryske too. While I didnt actually use her template 10, it was the inspiration for the way I did this page. I didn't want to leave her off my thanks.

Thoughts and a freebie list.

Ok, ladies I have a list, and also a few questions. I have been looking at some of these lists lately and it seems like some people just post the links, no matter what. I tend to only post the things I like. NOT that just because I forgot to post you, or didn’t catch a freebie that I don’t like it, but I am not gonna waste your time or mine posting freebies I think are junk. But some of the other lists out there are like OH, we have 200+ freebies today, and I wonder how. Then I go look, and that’s what a lot of them are. Or freebies that you have to jump through hoops for which I don’t like either.

I guess my point is I wonder which you guys prefer. I know that I check Amy W.’s list and Ikea Goddess’ list daily, because they ALWAYS have quality freebies listed and almost always ones that I missed. To me their lists are of value. I am just curious what you think. And I started with Selena’s list because something about her personality just caught my attention. And her freebies were always fabulous. I miss her.

When I check my hit list, I see that so many of you come, and I know many of you come regularly. I love reading your comments. Its so nice to hear from you. I love the digi scrapping community. You ladies are all FAB, (I think that’s my word of the day). So many of you just leave me a hi, and I think that’s awesome. THANKS.

Anyways I just wanted some input on that topic. I had other questions but I forgot what they were. SOON I have some news that I can not wait to share, but I have to wait for word that its okay. Hehe for now its still a secret.

her camo and lace kit continues, if you have teenage girls you cant miss this

Okay… so Misty doesn’t have any freebies today but she has some great tips
