Some layouts and a free quick page

April 30, 2009

Well, I’m late with some layouts.  The first two layouts are made with Lemon Sunshine by Lisa Minor at Scrapdebris.   This is a lovely yellow and green kit that can be used for just about any type of layout, and it’s only $1.00.  Can’t beat that, can you?  Lisa has a free matching alpha on her blog, hop on over to pick it up!  The last layout is made with Lisa’s Silly Summer Fun kit (also only $1.00).  I made a quick page out of the last layout.  It’s free, enjoy, and please leave a comment!

So, here are the layouts, all from a family reunion last summer in New Jersey:

Finally – the rest of Tender Whisper!

March 10, 2009

OK, so here it is.  I added the paper that was missing, along with a few more.  Plus, I fixed the “worn” paper.  It’s no longer a flattened jpeg with white at the edges – it’s a png now, so no white will show.  There are some frame clusters and a few more miscellaneous elements, too.  Here’s the preview:

A little quiz, and an odd answer…

March 5, 2009

I was checking out WenchdGrafix Designs blog this morning, hunting out her wonderful freebies. She had a post about “What tarot card are you?” So, I tried it out. Here’s what I got:

Wheel of Fortune

Wheel of Fortune

You are The Wheel of Fortune

Good fortune and happiness but sometimes a species of intoxication with success

The Wheel of Fortune is all about big things, luck, change, fortune. Almost always good fortune. You are lucky in all things that you do and happy with the things that come to you. Be careful that success does not go to your head however. Sometimes luck can change.

What Tarot Card are You?
Take the Test to Find Out.

“Wheel of Fortune”!?!?!?  “Lucky in all things” I do?  “Be careful that success does not go” to my head???  (Scratching head in puzzlement.)  I do consider myself blessed – but not in ALL things, LOL!  As far as success goes, hmmm.  What type of success are they referring to?  My sweet darling and I have been married for over 20 years, so I would say, yes, successful in marriage.  Only time will tell if I’m a successful parent, LOL!  As far as anything else goes, though, I’m definitely bewildered as to where this success is, ROFL!

So, that’s my odd bit for the week, I guess.

New freebie Paper Pack

February 28, 2009

I know, I haven’t posted the rest of the Tender Whisper kit.  I’ve just been busy, like everyone else, LOL!  In the meantime, I have a paper pack to give to you.  I used the color pallette from the DSO February Color Challenge.  There are loads of gorgeous freebies, you can check them out by clicking here.  So far, I just have papers – I’ll probably make some elements later.

I got to test out some CU textures/overlays by Lisa Minor of Scrapdebris, and these papers are the result.  I don’t know if these are available yet, but she (and other designers) have some great things available at wonderful prices.  Check it out!

There are actually 21 papers, even though the preview only shows 20.  Here’s the preview:

I split this into two downloads, you can get them from 4shared here:

Have you seen this little thing?

February 20, 2009

You Are a Mystic

You are an island. You don’t need anyone else to make you happy.
And though you see yourself as a loner, people are drawn to you.
Deep and sensitive, you tend to impress others with your insights.
You also tend to be psychic – so listen to that inner voice!

Your strength: Your self sufficiency

Your weakness: You despise authority

Your power color: Maroon

Your power symbol: Hammer

Your power month: July

What Does Your Birth Date Mean?

I saw this on Sir Scrapalot’s blog, as I was working my way through the My Scrap Shop blog train, and thought I’d try it.   I’m not sure I agree with all of this, but some of it is actually true. Weird, eh?

Tender Whisper Quick Pages

February 4, 2009

I’m back with some quick pages made from the Tender Whisper kit.  I made a couple of the pages fairly plain – not so frilly – so they could be used for men/boys.

I also discovered that I mistakenly left one of the papers out of the kit.  So, I’ll be back with the missing paper plus a few last bits I’m going to throw in with it.   Be sure to check back.

So, here is the preview for the quick pages:

I had to break it into two files.  Here are the links:
