There may be a small change in plans for National Scrapbooking Day. Of course ScrapMatters is having a sale, so you may want to run over there and grab all the goodies that you can. But also we are planning a bigger sale and so much more for Black Friday. Hard to believe that the year has gone by so fast. Many of the designers are planning a Grab Bag for Black Friday and of course I will be having one as well, so you might not see a grab bag from me for National Scrapbooking Day, but then again, you may, but not a big one. I'll have to think it over a bit. I do have quite a few things in the works right now, so there will be some new releases. With Halloween going on tonight, I'm not sure if I'll be making a post tomorrow. I have a photo shoot planned and don't know how long it will run. So, if there is no grab bag tomorrow, don't worry. There will be a huge one at the end of the month. I'll try to get back here tomorrow for a posting. If I don't make it check back on Sunday. If I miss you, Happy National Digital Scrapbooking Day!!!

Sorry I'm Late!

This weekend for me was horrible. I had like the worst stomach virus ever! And I'm going to blame it on my co-workers. I don't know where else it could have come from. Last week I was left alone to man the office because everyone else was away at conference. One person always has to stay behind to be on call and this time it was me. Wasn't as bad as I figured it would be, but it sure was lonely with no one else coming into the office but me. Talk about being on lock down the entire time. So when everyone got back on Thursday they were all talking about this bug that they all got and how sick they all were, but then they got better the last couple of days. So I listened thinking it was no big deal. Everyone appeared to be doing fine. But then what happens. Friday I get so sick I spend most of the day in the bathroom. Most of the afternoon anyway. I started out great, but then that afternoon I just got unbelieveably sick. Anyway, not a pleasant weekend. Hopefully the rest of my family doesn't get it. But with my luck, they'll all have it at the same time.

I've got a few new releases at the shop. Nothing big, just some alphas and a paper pack. I've been working on more, but I plan to put together a grab bag for Digital Scrapbooking Day. I want to pack it full! So here is a look at what's new in my store, but you won't be able to purchase any of it today. ScrapMatters is down for today and maybe part of tomorrow for some upgrades. We've been getting some heavy traffic so now we need more power or whatever. I don't understand all the technical stuff.






For this paper pack please note that all the burlap papers are png files which makes the complete download huge! But I love the texture and think that they make great backgrounds. Of course you need something solid behind it which is why I threw in a piece of brown paper bag paper. Look for more burlap in the future.

Now for the freebie.


Hope you all enjoy! Have a great Halloween! Just in case I don't get to make another post before then.

Fun Little Game

I dont' usually go searching the net and play these little games, but I did come across this one on my blog trips and liked it. I figured I'd share it with you.

67 words

I actually type a lot for work and was kind of disappointed with my score. I guess I need to work on it more. It's decent I know, but I thought I was at least typing 70 words a minute.

Today is just a little bit of chatter. I'll have more for you later this week.

Girl On Wheels has Arrived!

I have finally finished a layout. I can't remember the last time I actually had the time and work on a layout for the fun of it. This is one of the photos I took on my daughter's birthday. One of her presents was a Hannah Montana scooter. She is a huge Hannah Montana fan.


For this layout I used one of the Keepsake 8 templates which were released today. Also I used my Girl On Wheels kit which was also released today. Girl On Wheels is the sister kit to Boy On Wheels.



Here is another layout by haynay using the Girl On Wheels kit. You'll see some more in the gallery later.


I also have some other new releases in the store today. Please feel free to go and check them out at ScrapMatters. The link is over to your right.




Now for the freebie. Today I have two for you. This is to somewhat make up for the week that I forgot. First is a small quickpage set using my Delightful Refreshment kit. This quickpages were made for you by a few of my CT members. Enjoy.


And here is a set of wrinkled paper alphas.


You may notice that I have a new freebie preview. Flergs has released some preview templates and I decided to play with one a bit. I really loved it and just had to have it. I still love my otherone as well so I may alternate or something. I'll figure it out. You all enjoy and have a great weekend.

Boy On Wheels is Released!

Thanks to all of you who have responded about my daughter's birthday. It was a great day for her and she had a great time with her little friends. My husband and I were completely wore out from the experience. Normally for our birthday zoo trip it's just the family. This time we invited friends. Sure we all had fun, but the children were the only ones who didn't need a nap at the end of the day. I haven't downloaded my pictures yet, but I'll have some soon to show.

Today I wanted to let you see some of the layouts my CT has created using my Delightful Refreshment Kit. I had intended on doing this last week, but it was just too crazy a week for me.

This one is by Geri. She has also used one of the templates from my Keepsake 5 Template Set.

This one is by Jennifer.
This on by Tater.

Here is haynay.

I've got more to share, but I'll wait on those. All these layout will be placed in the CT Gallery soon. Now, down to some store business. I have a new kit in the store today. It's a boy themed kit. You can never find enough of those. It makes scrapping my son difficult. Actually the inspiration from this kit came from my daughter's birthday present. I wanted to do a boy kit first, but there is a sister kit scheduled to be released next week. But for now, let me introduce Boy on Wheels.


Sorry, no layouts for you yet. I intended to complete some myself, but didn't get the chance. I just got the kit to my CT as well so there aren't any there either. I'll work on it.

To make up for it I'm going to offer you a freebie. Here is a small add on to the Boy on Wheels kit. Enjoy!

Daughter Turns 6

Sorry all, I forgot to post this earlier this week. But my daughter turns six today. This weekend has been so busy that I haven't had the time to work on the freebie. Sorry all. I really am. But my baby is growing up. Can you believe it? In ten years she'll be driving. As my husband has reminded me, in a little over six years my son will be driving. They grow up so fast.
