Going on Vacation and More computer problems

Hello all! First I have to say that I am so sad that I have not been able to get much done this past week again. I am going through withdrawal. Well, I am going to have to wait even longer now.

My computer problems have gotten worse not better. I thought I was being good and fixed it. Well, I guess I was wrong. I didn't. Now I have no internet on my main computer and I can not really get the hang of my laptop really yet. I am working on it. As you can see I am able to post but I have not had enough time to play to get anything done really. So there is no templates right now. I truly am sorry about that.

Also, we are finally leaving for vacation tomorrow morning. It is about time. We go out to the desert all the time for a few days here and there (usually on a holiday weekend) so it really isn't much time. Well, hubby and I had made an arrangement that if he got to get this trick motorhome that he wanted, that I got to use it to finally go to my family reunion in Wyoming. Well, we are both getting out way. We just got our new motorhome (that cost the price of a second home) this past Winter. And my Reunion is this coming weekend. I am so excited.

Here we come Wyoming! First we are going to the Grand Canyon and taking the train ride there. I am not quite sure what to expect. Then from there we will go up to Salt Lake City to see my mother and sister that lives there. From there we will go up to Evanston for the Rollins' Reunion. After 11 years we are finally going to go. I do not know many of my cousins. All of them are older than me. My second cousins are my age but I don't know them either. This shall be interesting.

I feel bad that we won't be going to Yellowstone though. We will be right there. Oh, well.

I hope to come back with many Templates and pages done since we are driving maybe I can get something done on the road. LOL! That is if the kids don't run my raged the whole time. And now I have 7 kids to wait on since I have my niece with us this summer.

Well, I hope you all have a great 4th of July. Have a great week and I will see you back here on either July 4th or July 5th. Take care all! Signing off now........

I scrapped without making a template!
(but H Template is in the post below this one so keep going to get to it!)
Okay, for you this is not great is it but for me it is. I just had to get something done today. Here are my pages I have finished. I actually printed the first one out and then realized that I had put the flourish over my sons eye. Oh, well!

I did the Cousins page using Doreen Stolz's A Wind of Spring from ScrappinDigiKreations.
I also used Annetje77's Round 2 template that is up on her blog. Check her blog out if you like templates. She has some pretty unique Alpha and number templates there too.

Another page that I call Hangin' On I did of my son Daniel hanging on the ramp bars at school.
While Jonny was busy doing his musical program Daniel had fun climbing all over the ramp in his "kewl" Winnie the Pooh headband.

I used Angel Zimmer's Cherry Pie kit (Digitals is not working right now due to changing servers so I will get the link up later).

I also used Lindsay Jane Designs' Template for this layout. I just found her blog today when I was looking through IkeaGoddess' blog. What a find. I love scrapping circles.

And here is my last share for right now. I have done a page of my son Jonny at the musical program. He loves to show his colors off. I love to do theme pages like this.

Again, I have used Angel Zimmer's Cherry Pie Kit and her Blueberry Pie Kit from Digitals.

And of course, I had to use another template from Lindsay Jane Designs' blog. I thought this was really nice with the curled photo. Thanks Lindsay!

Another Template for you all! G it is so much fun!
(don't forget to read the previous post before this one!)
Yes, another one that fast. I thought since I have a couple minutes I would get this one up too. Not only did I have fun making the template to this one but I also just adore this kit. I have this thing for bugs. At least cute bugs right-the gross kind can just go away!

I did this layout with Angel Zimmer's Backyard Club Kit at Digitals. I can not remember the font sorry gals. Have fun and don't forget to pick up the Templates below. Have a great day!

Pick up the 8 1/2 x 11 here.

Templates up and Big Surprise for all you 8 1/2 x 11 scrappers!!!

First, I would like to say to all those that kept checking in this weekend- I am so sorry. My computer really hates me and I could not get into my blogger account because I could not get my connection to stay up.

Okay, guess what? I have decided that since you are all loving these templates that I would take the extra time and make them into 8 1/2 x 11 pages for all you that would like them. I got a couple requests saying they were so sad that they were not available in that size. Please understand that they are not exactly like the 12x12 but that they are pretty close. I have tried to keep the same look about them. Now all you need to do is click on the preview of the one you want and it will take you there. I do not make albums in the 8 1/2x11 format so I will not be making sample layouts with them but you can get the general idea from the 12x12 layout.

This layout was done with Silvia Romeo's Impressionist Kit which can be fond not only at Digitals but also at: Divine Digital , Natural Designs in Scrapbooking , Scrapbookers Playground , Designs in Digital , Studio Style Designs.

Here are the F Templates. I hope you enjoy them. I will be working on getting the A-D templates converted to the smaller template sizes in the next few days. Also, the new G and H templates should be up later today. Please click on the links below to get your size of template. Thanks everyone for your comments. I love to get them!

Would you like a little WHINE with that CHEESE????

Okay, nothing new again! But...guess what? I have the G and H templates done. But forgot to do F. So I will be working on it this weekend and the layouts with the templates.

I have tried to be creative this week but I have been fighting a BAD computer. BAD,BAD! I think I have some of the kinks worked out. Then today I couldn't get my external hard drive to turn on. Man my luck!

Guess what? Then this afternoon I found out that our air conditioner is gone-Dead and it has to be replaced. We can not go this summer without it. Today it is 105 degrees so no way can we survive without it. WUSS! LOL!

So, keep your eyes out this weekend for my new freebies templates F,G, and H. They have got to be done this weekend right?

Also, look at my posts below I got some pages others have done with the templates to give you more ideas. They are great! Have a fun and happy day all!

E Freebie Template and sharing an oldie!

Here is an oldie that I did for one of the newsletters for Digitals as a scraplift. I really liked this one. I can not find the page I scraplifted at the moment. I will find it later.

I used Sophia Davies' If Friends Were Flowers at Digitals.

Here is my layout with my new template E Template below. I have used Gwenevere Dupus' brand new kit When Life Serves You Lemons at SDK. To get the template please just click on the image above or go here.
Layouts done by you-Thank you!!!!

I wanted to share this with you last week but for some reason I just could not get Blogger to work for me for days. That is why there is not much posts from me either. Bummer! Anyhow, I got it done and here is what I have to share!

I would like to share some layouts done by some very talented people. I love to see how creative others are with the templates. Here are some layouts that were done by Vicki Hook. Check out her blog for more wonderful work by Vicki.

This first one "A" is for AUBREY was done with Sweet Easter kit by Miss Mint at
"A" template by Janeal (me)

I just love these colors don't you. So girly! Wonderful job!

I adore the music theme on this one. What a wonderful photo!

This is "B" is for Braden. Credits: Food of Love kit by Jen Caputo
"B" template by Janeal (me)

Talk about cute! Or shall we say Kewl? Is that the term for older boys now days? I believe I have this kit from Doreen when she was at another location. She does great work.

The third one is "C" is for Colby. Credits: Boys Will Be Boys kit by Doreen Stolz at Elemental Scraps
"C" template by Janeal

This last one was done by LeAnn and this is what she wrote to me:"I was doing a color challenge today at GoDigitalScrapbooking and used your template, so thought I would share the result.I really love this template, will probably use it again. Thanks.LeAnn" This was done with my To Tear Template.

You gals are so wonderful. Thank you for sharing your work with me and letting me share it with others. Great job!

New Digital Quickies Challenge For June AND Freebie Template (not an ABC Template but still fun!)

I just wanted to first share with you the kit we are using for the Digital Quickies Challenge over at Digitals. It is called Softly Summer by Tink. What a beautiful kit!
This is a fun challenge and you get so much for doing so little. First you go and purchase the kit for 50% off. Then you make a quickpage and send it in. At the end of the month you get ALL the quickpages made with that kit for the month. Normally we have two kits to choose from but I have not heard back from the other designer. We will see if I can find another kit to feature!

Here is one of the quickpages I made with last months kit Ice Cream and Orange Juice by Joyce de Jonge. So fun! This is my son Daniel and his friend Jade. And guess what? I made a template to match. I hope you enjoy it! I actually started this one a while ago and forgot to finish it. LOL! Goofy me!
click on the image above or go here to pick it up!
And...Don't forget to head over to 1hourscrap to grab today's wordart by me. It looks like the uncle one but says Aunt.

The D Template is in the post below so don't miss it!I first want to let you know that there is always some free wordart at 1hourscrap and you don't have to order anything to get it. Just go here and it is on the bottom of the page on the left sidebar. Click it and get it! The wordart above is something I did and it is up today only so try to get over there. There is a new piece of wordart up for free at the site everyday so go check it out. Right now I am working on some cute little year markers for the kids. Also, I hope to get some month ones done too. I also have some cute Sisters wordart that I will be sending in soon too. Keep an eye out.

I have finished this quickpage album and it is up at the site. It is available in the full Album or in 2 page sets. You can click on the images below for the individual pages or go to the America The Beautiful 12x12 Album . They are all on sale for 30% off right now.

This is my family enjoying the 4th of July fireworks a few years back. They just loved it. I was surprised that I was able to get some of the firework pictures. This was just so much fun!
D Template Freebie and some layouts!-Don't forget to get the A Template too (below)

Hello all! First and formost I would love to say thank you to all that have commented on my ABC Album Templates. I really do love to do these and I am glad that you are enjoying them too. I was not sure if I was going to make the templates when I first started because I thought everyone would think they were kind of goofy looking. Well, you have not idea how happy you have made me feel knowing that others could use the templates and that you liked them. Again, Thank you all! I love to read all the wonderful comments and love that you can use what I make.

Okay, now I have a few things to share with you. I did this first layout using Tink's Colourways-Saffron kit. I also used the template g from Lisa Minor. I got it off her blog. These templates are in DIP format but I just enlarge to my 12x12 size and use my magic wand to put my papers or photos in.

Well, thanks to Lisa, I had to go buy DIP myself. So I hope to get it downloaded today to try her templates out the correct way. LOL! I am so excited.

Here is my page I have done for the ABC Album for my son. This is Daniel in the hospital with his brother holding him. I believe he is one day old here.

The next line to my poem goes:
D is for Darling all the long, long day.

I have used Dea Spina's Nearly Spring kit and of coarse my D template available below.

You can pick this template up by clicking on the image above or go here.

I hope you like it. Enjoy!
