Freebie Alert!

Hi all, Hope all my American friends had a wonderful Thanksgiving and that everyone is enjoying their weekend. I have a new freebie for you today, another Quickpage using Booland Designs bonus for the Oct08 CC at SAS called "Friendship Brew" and a template from DigiMom Designs, "Quickscrap Template Set9". This was created as part of my commitment as a member of the Stone Accents Studios CT.



This is a photo of myself and my two best friends. We have known each other for years, since our children were 4yrs old and now they are 21yo, and, although we don't see each other as often as I would like, when we are together again, time means very little.

Please leave a comment either on 4Shared or on the Blog if you download. I love reading them all and they encourage me to keep creating freebies.

Have a great day!

New freebie of a different kind

Hi all, how many of you have heard of personal cutters.... like Craft Robo, Wishblade, Pazzles to name but a few. Well I have a Craft Robo and have been having a bit of a play recently. I created my first "Print and Cut" file today and have uploaded it to 4Shared to share with those of you that can use it. It is a GSD file and has been created in RoboMaster ver 5.1 . I hope you can use it and like it. I am trying to work on a matching Lower Case but am not having as much luck with the cut file as yet. But I will keep trying.





Here are the links to download these files. Remember they are GSD files and so only suit some Cutters.

Flower Alpha U-Z

New freebie QP and Thanks!!

I just wanted to say thanks to those of you that came in and left a comment on Nicholas' layout. You can't imagine how excited he was that someone had come in and left him comments about his creation! So much so, I have spent most of today helping him to work out how to use PSCS3 to make more layouts to share!

I also have been busy and have a new quickpage for you using Frogs and Mudcakes by Charlies Digiscraps and one of my templates.




These are some photos of our new puppy Mollie and her siblings having their first solid meal. She is only 4 weeks old, so still living with her mum. We get to pick her up just before Christmas, but her Mum's owner is really great about keeping us posted on Mollie's development with photos and emails.

Aren't they soooo cute!




and here is the Quickpage that I designed from my layout. Please leave a comment if you download. Password to download is "sassygirl" without the quotes.

New layout for SAS

These are some photos of my son making a snowman in his first experience with snow, in the middle of an Australian Summer! How did this happen you ask?? We were on holidays in Tasmania, and on Christmas Day it snowed on the top of Mount Wellington. We went for a visit up there on the 26th December and the place was packed with people all having the time of their lives. It was so strange. we had just spent the day on the water out of Hobart having a lovely cruise and then made snowmen in the afternoon. What a fantastic world we live in!

I have used the SAS Nov08 MegaKit, and a template by JasJul provided for the Nov08 template challenge, also at SAS.



Have a great day!

CD Album

Nicholas and I spent some time paper scrapping a few weekends ago and came up with these CD Albums. We used my Craft Robo to cut the circles to cover the CDs back and front and then decorated them ready to put in photos at some stage. It was fun, and I really enjoyed seeing what Nicholas came up with on his own.

Have a great day!

New Kit for TSG Nov08 CC

Hi there, hope you all are well..... I feel like I have spent half my future life at the Drs just recently and no end in sight just yet either! Rats... takes up so much time tooing and froing :)

However, I did finally get time to focus on a submission for the colour challenge at The Scrapping Garden. I have to admit, the colour swatch threw me as I am not overly fond of "muddy" colours, but I had some musically themed stuff I wanted to use... so here is the result. It ended up quite big (over 80meg) so I have split it into three downloads. Please, please, please..... if you download.... leave me a comment! I read them all, and it is your comments that keep me designing stuff for you all :)

New layout for SAS and a freebie Quickpage for you!

Here is my second layout for SAS from "Aussie Nature" by AmboWife Designs. This layout is of some Banksia flowers that we saw whilst on our trip to Tasmania. These flowers were huge as you can see by the comparison against my DH's hand. I have never seen such huge flowers on a Banksia before, or since, these ones.

I have also made this layout into a quickpage freebie for all of you to enjoy.

Hi there, here is a freebie quickpage I have created out of my layout for SAS CT team. I have used AmboWife Designs "Aussie Nature" and a template by Acmdesignz

Here is my layout:




and here is the Quickpage:



This kit is just gorgeous for creating layouts with your Australian photos. This is, of course, quite easy for me 'cos I live here, but lots of people visit Australia every year, so if you are one of those visitors, consider this kit to scrap your Aussie Nature pics!

Sing Me a Song Challenge

and.... here is my submission for the "Sing Me A Song Challenge" . I have used the kit I designed as the posting bonus, and a "Journal Block Action 1" by Josy Carson to create the journal block.



Check out this challenge now !

New layouts for TSG

Today, I finally got some time to create some layouts as a member of the Scrapping Garden's CT team. I have used Pat Hall's "Tyler" and some templates from Acmdesignz!




These are some photos of my Daycare children having fun with my son Nicholas on his Go-Kart. Sometimes he would spend ages just driving them up and down our drive and they all loved it. It didn't go fast, but it was COOL!




I found this on the net, and it made me laugh....


"Give a man a fish, and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, and you feed him for life."So goes the worthy old saw. Good in its day, more than likely, but completely inappropriate for the thrusting, cut-throat, dog eat dog world of modern commerce. I would suggest an alternative version:


"Teach a man to fish, and you introduce another competitor into the overcrowded fishing industry. Give a man a fish, and you stimulate demand for your product" — Mickey the Fish, Sep 04 2000



My DH with a massive Carp that he caught out of the River Murray, South Australia. Shame you can't eat them, unless you really know how to prepare and cook them properly, which I don't!

Have a great day!!

Progressive Challenge at TSG

Another Challenge run by my good friend Pam over at TSG. Check out the Forum and here is an incentive to take part. I have made an Abby Album using the kit I designed for the "Sing Me A Song" Challenge, so if you participate in both challenges, you will end up with a great kit and quickpage album, even if I do say so myself LOL

Here is a preview of the Abby Album for "A Few of my Favorite Things" that I have created as a posting bonus for the Progressive Challenge.
