One week left to join in on the Digital Quickies Challenge!
I just wanted to invite you all to join us with our Digital Quickies Challenge at Digitals. Come and join us in making quickpages to share with each other. Just because you couldn't attend the chats doesn't mean you can't get these Quickies! So take on the challenge and get some wonderful quickpages!

We have two wonderful kits are on sale for $3 each:
Wendy Page called
End of Summer Fling
Angela Sharrow's Dreamscape Combo Pack
Once you have made a quickpage with one or both of these kits you just upload a sample to the Digitals Quickies Challenge Gallery, then send me the original version (12x12, 300 dpi). After I have compiled all the quickpages for the month I will send you the link to all the quickpages that have been made with the kit you used via a PM at Digitals. If you have any other questions regarding this challenge hop on over and read the Rules and Information. Or if you need to know how to make a quickpage go to Instructions for making a quickpage.
There are samples in the ads below of what I made with these kits. And you will receive the quickpages I have made along with everyone elses. So go and grab the kits and make a quickpage to receive all these wonderful quickpages!

We can't wait to see what you can do with these awesome kits!

Guess what!!! 8 1/2 x 11 templates done for the first 5 of the series of ABC templates:
Yes, I finally got them done! I have lots of other things I needed to do but I guess you can say I am a procrastinator or that I just needed something simpler to do. I hope you all like these. To get to 4shared please just click on the picture to take you there. Have fun!

New template for J! And some layouts I would like to share!

Where has this week gone? I am not sure. I want to say I am sorry for being so MIA. I know a lot of you are trying to get their ABC albums done by the end of the year for Christmas presents. I truly promise to get it done in time. Now believe it or not but I have all the way through M done. I just need to get the layouts done to match. LOL! When? I am not sure. I hope this weekend. So keep your eyes open. If not please don't get too mad at me :-)

Here is my first layout that I did of my son Travis. Doesn't he look so cute with those big eyes?

I created this with Angel Zimmer's Angel Spirit found at Digitals.

This next layout was done of my two youngest sons Travis and Daniel. I actually made this with the Digitals He Said, She Said challenge in mind over at Digitals. I also made it into a quickpage for our school fundraiser.

I used Angel Sharrow's True Friendship Blossoms at Digitals.

Thess next two I also made for the fundraiser. They were both made using Silvia Romeo's Opal and Onyx kit from Digitals (and a few other stores).

This first layout is of my great-grandmother.

This second layout is of my grandfather.

Now to the new addition to my ABC book for Daniel! This is my new J page. I am excited.
I saw this concept of the scalloped circle with holes in it so I decided to go hog wild and add lots of my own little elements to this to make a VERY layered look that you gals already know that I love. I had fun but boy what a process. When I first realized how I wanted to do this, I didn't realize what a process it would be to make it. But I like how it turned out.

I had to use my friend Sharia Braxton's kit again because you know I can't pass up the opportunity to match clothes with kits. LOL! Besides it has a frog and how else can I emphasize jumping than with a froggie! Did I say I love this kit!!! Oh, it is called 2 Little Boys by Sharia Braxton over at Divine Digital.

Now here is another verse to my ABC poem too:
J is for Jump, bounce and turn.
Okay, I had the hardest time getting these to upload to 4shared. It literally took me over 24 hours to figure out that I needed to zip the 12x12 template to get it to work. Sorry about the delay. Also, the 12x12 isn't colored because I was trying to get it to a size that I could upload.

Now to pick these templates up please go here or click on the picture and it will take you there!
And don't forget the 8 1/2 by 11 too, pick it up here!

Oh, my goodness! I am ROFLMBO!!!! Yes, that really does happen sometimes doesn't it? Well, today I got an e-mail from my sis (who NEVER sends me anything) so I had to go and check it out. This is what it said:

You all know I don't pass e-mails on lightly, but I could not pass this up because it was hilarious... in that oh, I have been there kind of way...

This is/was a real ebay listing...

Okay, you just have to go and check it out. This lady is funny. Well, then after you read it go and check out her blog at :

She is cracking me up not only because she is funny but she seems to say exactly the words that come out of my mouth at least half the time. Oh, my I have to say that having 6 boys really does keep a woman on her toes. But she has girls too so that frustrates me-LOL- just kidding.

Now, I was reading on her site about the adorable outfits she gets her kids and I am just drooling over these fantastic outfits. Oh, my goodness! Can I just cry. I will never see such beauty in my house that is for sure. My house I am lucky to get my kids to wear something that doesn't have a stain or hole in it. Not that they don't have nice clothes they just don't like to wear the nice clothes.

If I was to put a picture on about what I was excited about it would be that my 8 year old son got a black and white football jersey (from the second hand store) that looks brand new and he would not take it off for four days. When I realized that he had, I made him take it off. Well, of course he fought it but I eventually won saying I would wash it right away. A week later it is still in the laundry pile (at least it is the clean laundry pile). LOL!

Anyhow, if you get a chance go over to her site and check it out. Very funny reading (especially from another mother of 6).

Thank you for all your support and kindness

I just wanted to say thank you to all my friends out there that have vouched for me. I really appreciate it. It makes me so happy that I have made so many friends here that care. I am very grateful for that.

Amy and I have e-mailed each other a few times and this is "water under the bridge" for both of us. We are just going to go on with our lives and I am going to be VERY careful from now on with my designs.

Sorry for all the drama gals. Again, thank you all for watching out for me. You rock!
I would like to explain what has happened with my last template. I hope you will all understand.

Hello all! I am very saddened by what has happened but I fully want to make it right. So first I would like to ask that everyone that downloaded the last template (Template J) to please go and delete it. I have removed it from 4shared and the previews and such from below.

Last week I was working on my quickpages for our school fundraiser and I had seen a layout in a gallery (don't know where since I frequent many). So I made a quickpage like it. Then I enjoyed how it turned out that I thought that I would make something similar but with flowers. Well, I guess that was the wrong thing to do because it is just too close to someone else's tempate (which I did not know was a template in the first place).

I do apologize to Amy and would never try to plagerize on anyone else's designs. The fact that the flower placement is almost exact to the stars just happened by chance seriously. I was just placing them here and there and then put a separate on another layer so you could move it around. I am truly surprised that happened that way.

I am not sure what else to do but to publicly apologize to Amy for any hurt feelings and so forth. I would never want anyone to think of me in any harsh terms. I am not the type of person that does well with confrontation either. I usually shrink into a hole if I know someone feels badly about me.

I do not do this for profit at this time. That is not why I scrap. I scrap for fun and for my family. That is all. And recently I thought I would try to do something for my school.

I am surprised this has happened today of all days too because I had just decided to become a designer yesterday after a friend of mine had been hinting to it for months. I would never want anyone to think that I was stealing others designs.

I truly do apologize to all of you out there. I would never want to make problems like this. I even more would like to apologize to Amy one more time and make sure that she knows that I would never do this on purpose.

Thank you for reading this. I hope you all will forgive me.

This has been removed files and all because of a dispute. Amy did a template just like this one last week.
I am so excited to get back into designing again. I had someone write me today asking if I was going to finish out the Alpha series. Of course I am! I have used Tracy Blankenship's Mixed Melon from SDK for this layout. I have also used the font Lucida Handwriting.

And just a reminder that if you want to get updated on my posts just remember to subscribe at the bottom of this page, that way you know when I post my next freebies! Thank you all for being interested in my templates!

Sharing some previews of templates to come and pages/quickpages done with them.

I have been busy even more lately. I am so bad! But this time I have been busy on the computer. I can literally say that I have made 3 templates in the last day. Can you believe it? I can't.

So where are they? Well, I am going to make them into templates for the Alpha series so you will need to wait just a tad bit longer. But I couldn't wait to share them with you.

This first quickpage/layout was not done with a template but thought I would share it anyhow. I made this with Silvia Romeo's Arabesque Add-On Yellow Kit + Bonus Quick Page from Digitals (and many other places).

This second layout is of my son Michael a year and a half ago. What a cutie! By the way, this is what I would probably look like if I were a boy. LOL! I just say that because he is my only child that looks like me. This is a quickpage also and I made this with Lara Payton's Classroom Memories Papers and Classroom Memories Elements from Digitals.

Here is the third layout done today that is actually a quickpage also and was made with Lara Payton's Classroom Memories Papers and Classroom Memories Elements from Digitals.
This is my son Matthew a year and a half ago.
I will let you gals know if and when the quickpages are available. BUT.... as for the templates they will be ready very soon. I am working on making them into the 8.5x11 and putting the alphabet on it. I hope you like them.

Freebie Template up and Just had to show you some of the quickpages!

Okay, yes I said I would not be around but I guess I was wrong. I get started on these quickpages and just have to make a template with them. LOL! Addicting!!!! Augh!!!!

Okay, this first one I did with Georgia Oliver's Shades of Summer at Digitals. Oh, I am loving these bright colors.

Here is another fun one that I did sort of with the idea of one of my templates in mind. I did this one with Spring is Sprung Element Pack and Spring is Sprung Paper Pack by Kim Smith at SDK.

Here is a page I did with Karla Kellum's Fruit's of the Spirit Papers, Elements, and Tags and Stickers at Digitals.

And definitely a couple pages with Dea Spina's new kit Burnt Sienna Gleam at Digitals.

And then there is a page I have done that I had to both make into a quickpage and make a template!
This page was done using Sharia Braxton's 2Little Boys over at Divine Digital.
Thank you to all the wonderful designers that have contributed to this project. When I find out when they are offering these quickpages I will let you know.

So go and pick up this template below. I hope you all like it!

Some more layouts with my templates by you! And some great news!

First things first, I just want to thank Rosemary for telling me she misses me blogging. Oh, how sweet. I always wondered if anyone actually read any of my ramblings. I am so grateful for all of you out there that care.

Well, I just have to share with you a few layouts that have been sent to me by you wonderful blog readers out there. Now, again, I warned you I would have to share them if you sent them so here goes:

This first layout was done by LeAnn. What a wonderful layout! I love the colors Hun! What a fun springy layout. And that little girl of yours-Oh, how precious! I love what you have done with the template! Awesome layout!

LeAnn used the Sweet Attitude kit by Anita Designs (Nanas Attic) and my "B" Template.

This next layout was done by Tanyia. What a sweetie pie she has there. I love the middle pose. You better watch out you might just have a little model there. Just wonderful and thanks for sharing Tanyia! This was made with my "I" Template without the "I".

Here is another layout that just is wonderful! This was made by Andrea Dumalski. I love all the different things about this layout. What a hodge podge design (that is a good thing in my book!). And the pictures are just fabulous! I adore those little cheeks! Great job Andrea!
Kit by Weeds and Wildflowers – Believing In You
Note Paper by Lyn in the Csmegakit
File folder tab by atomic cupcake Girlie Bugs Kit

And last but not least. Go check out another layout with a template of mine at Heather's Blog here:
Thank you everyone for sharing with me. I am so glad that you can use what I make.
Now, the big news. It probably isn't as big for you gals but I have decided to take this month off kind of but not completely. I am working on a HUGE project for my kids school. I am making TONS of quickpages to compile all together on one album for an auction that we have every year. I hope this will be a good contribution.
BUTTTTTT this does not mean that I am not going to be giving anything away. LOL! One of the designer contributors to this doesn't want the quickpages that I am making so she mentioned I maybe can give them away on my blog soooooo.... Keep an eye out for some freebies because even if she doesn't have me give them away then I have quite a few more that will be given away through their designers so I will let you know when they have them up if I can. I already have 11 done so we will see how many I can get done this month.
I hope all is well with all of you. Have a great week!
