Jan 2010 Wallpaper

I keep meaning to get here during the month and it just does not happen. It's been a crazy year. My hubby had a heart attack last summer and then a quad by pass, then pneumonia ect. then we ended up working on the house and now we seem to be buying a home in another state and moving soon. I hope after that things settle down some.

Ok, on to all things Digi. Amanda Thorderson at Digitals has a new kit out called Victorian Garden.

Just click on the link to Digitals on the side to check her store out.

Also, some of the digitals girls are having a Blog train, some great goodies for free if you hurry over. You can start at Amanda's blog and there will be a list to use from there.

SBE is having some great sales. It isn't often you get some of these ladies kits so cheap, so you might want to check that out.

Now, here is this months Wallpaper, I made it using Amanda's kit Snowbird.
As usual it comes in three sizes so you should find one that works for you.
Happy Digi scrapping.

Here is a preview of mine.

A new month, a new Freebie wallpaper

Amanda has out a new kit that is just too cute. This months wallpaper is made using that kit. You can get a mini matching kit at Digitals by signing up for the Nov calendar challenge, and her kit as always will be at a great sale price for now.

I keep meaning to post more and give out more goodies, but life has just been too busy. I am now on the CT at SBE which has kept me very busy and we have been painting inside the house and putting down new carpet. Sure looks nice and fresh and my rooms for sewing and computer are being redone.

You are just going to love this new kit, Harvest Blessings, check out the preview:

I have included 3 sizes this month as I got a new monitor and I know so many of us are getting nice big ones, the new size is 1680x1050, for the wide screen. One size is slightly different as it has a second background so it wasn't distorted. I just hate distorted images, don't you?

So, be sure to hop on over to Digitals and join in the calendar challenge, and don't forget to grab up Amanda's new kit.

New Freebie, Oct wallpaper

I know, again I've been bad and haven't been here and I have so much to tell you all. However it's just been constant busy here and the time just has not been here. But I did take the time to make you an Oct wallpaper. It's avail in two sizes, both in the zip and it's made using Amanda Thorderson's Harvest Moon at Digitals .

Here is a preview of the kit.

And here is your Oct wallpaper. It is minus the calendar, some of us prefer not to have one, but if you visit Digitals the first of Oct you'll find Amanda's Calendar challenge and there will be that one you can add.

Sept wallpaper

Just a quick post with your link to the sept wallpaper. It's made using Amanda's Fall Into School kit. Click on pic to see kit in the store.

Here is the preview of the wallpaper. I didn't put a month on it this time or a calendar. You can get the calendar by going to Amanda's Calendar challenge at Digitalscrapbookpages on the 1st.

I'm thinking maybe next month I'll put the month title separate so you can have one if you like.

Have fun, hope you injoy the wallpaper.

Here is your new Freebie finally.

Sorry it has taken so long, I know I'm going to try once a week to put up a freebie, but it's just been wicked around here. Good news is that hubby is finally getting better. It took an all day visit at the ER to accomplish that, but it was worth it.

One reason I've been so slow is that I got a bunch of free books at Arts Cow, and thought I'd use them for my girls for Christmas as I already had a ton of layouts done from all the challenges at SBE and Digitals, but it still took a bit of time to put them all together after rounding them all up and then I still had a few to do on the fly, including the covers. I found a great way to do covers tho easily. I took a layout, and added in some torn, folded papers that looked good behind. Rina's Stacked papers work really well, if you haven't seen those you need to over at SBE.

Here is a really small preview of the alpha, hope you enjoy it.

Now, thought I'd show you what I meant for the cover, I'm loving this layout of my middle daughter and her family on the cruise.

Yes I know

I owe you guys a freebie, but things keep happening around here. I have one in process, just have to put the finishing touch on it.

Hubby, who finally seemed to be shaking off that bug that has kept him down for the past few weeks since the surgery, tried to get something accomplished and hurt himself in the process, so now he's in big time pain. Chiopractic didn't help, so I'm thinking maybe we should see about an xray.

Meanwhile, I'm working on books for my girls for Christmas. I got 8 Artcow books for just shipping so am busily finishing up the last of the layouts I need as I only have until the end of the month. I've been doing challenges and saving up all the layouts, and getting great challenge gifts for doing them and now I've got free books! Cool, huh?

Also, I issued a challenge to the Photoshopscrapbookers Yahoo group to scraplift one of the Lovely Miss Kaits layouts, and we've been having a great time doing that. If you don't know Kait, she works over at SBG and is the most amazing scrapper!

Here is mine, I used Amanda's From Sea to Shining Sea, it's way more whimical, Kaits was more realistic, but I like it.

So, check back in the next couple days and I'll try to have that freebie for you.

Challenges at Digitals

Amanda has two challenges at Digitals with beautiful mini kits for each, and the large kit of the same name is on sale. My favorite is the Calendar challenge, I do 4x6, (you can make any size you like), and I make them for 2010, at the end of the year all I have to do is print and give them to my girls for Christmas, they reuse a pretty glass frame with metal corners I purchased at Walmart. They can't wait each year to see what photos I use on them, and it's gotten them to send me more photos during the year, that's a good thing for a Scrappin Granny.
Anyway, Song of Hope is the kit for this month for the Calendar challenge and the mini is darling.
The Scrap Therapy challenge is using Finalmente, both kits are on sale in the store.
Forum links: Calendar challenge HERE .
Scrap Therapy HERE .
Click on the preview to be taken to the store.
Hurry tho, you'll want to get the whole kit, buy it before Amanda realizes how low she has priced it. LOL
Now that we have gotten the important stuff out of the way, I have to say, it's been another heck of a day.
Several weeks ago my hubby suffered a heart attach and then had a quad by pass operation.
He was doing pretty well early on, then he caught some virus and has not been able to shake it. We seem to spend a lot of time in Dr's offices and today, we headed for the Hosp for a CT scan and he ended up admitted to the ER and we spent 3 hrs there. This kind of thing is happening a lot, I know he will eventually be all right, but it's sure a long haul.
Ok, everyone, check back in a day or two and I'll have a pretty for you for free.

New changes and a freebie

Well guys It's time I redid my blog and started using it. I've got friends hounding me and they are right, if I'm gonna take up space I should be updating it.

I'm no longer designing, and I've settled into CT work for one designer, Amanda Thorderson at Digitalscrapbookpages, or Digitals. I love her designs, she seems to design the way I like to scrap, so I've been working at doing better at layouts and having a lot of fun.

For today I have an august wallpaper that Amanda has agreed to allow me to share with you, using her Summer Cottage kit. I love this kit, the colors are awesome and there is just so many papers and elements you can find whatever you need.

This wallpaper does not have a calendar on it, that's because I made it for myself and I use a little free program called Reinlender that sits on my desktop and tells me what day of what month and year it is. I can also set up a to do list and put my appts, chats, and all in it, and can even set an alarm if I so choose. I don't miss so many chats now. .

If you would like a calendar, starting on the 1st, tomorrow, Amanda will have her Calendar challenge up in the Digitals forum and you'll be able to download a calendar and mini kit to do the challenge with, and also her main kit will be on sale, always at a great price.

So, here is todays freebie, a Wallpaper in two sizes made from Summer Cottage.
