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.

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.
