I've Been Tagged...Uh-oh

I've been Carol (Buddha Babe)! I'm supposed to list 7 songs I'm really into right now...can you say it with me? Help!!!! I am then supposed to tag 7 other people. I can only do the first part. I don't actually know 7 other people that have a blog - LOL. And, most of the ones I do know have already been tagged! I'm sure there is a rule somewhere about tagging strangers...there has to be - LOL.

Well, here are the rules directly from Carol's blog:
"List seven songs you are into right now. No matter what the genre, whether or not they have words, or even if they’re not any good, but they must be songs you’re really enjoying now. Post these instructions in your LiveJournal/blog along with your seven songs. Then tag seven other people to see what they’re listening to."

...okay, what am I into right now? When did I last voluntarily listen to music..hmmmm?

1. "Beyond the Sea" by Royal Crown Revue
2. "Don't Speak" by No Doubt
3. "She's So High" by Tal Bachman
4. "Flood" by Jars of Clay
5. "How to Dream" by Sam Phillips
6. "Far Away" by Nickleback
7. "Clocks" by Coldplay

And, honorary #8, the theme to SpongeBob SquarePants - because in my house you can't get away from it - EVER!

Ummmm, I guess I should go tag some people now....I'll post again with that list as soon as I get it.

Well, I figured out my uploading least for now, so I have a freebie to share! These are some pretty cool papers I made while playing around with filters. All of them are 12X12 and 300 DPI, but they can be resized. They have a scratched, sandy texture. And, the colors are perfect for fall.

I hope you like them!
If I can get more files uploaded, you'll have more freebies soon!


Have a great day!

Deco-Pages Club!!!!

Okay, this is a little bit of an advertisement, and as a designer at Deco-Pages, I might be accused of bias, BUT even if I weren't a designer, I would be telling you...this is a great deal! has a new club. It's SO new, we are having a contest to name it! Get all the details about that here.

Your membership includes a fabulous MEGA kit every month, a 10% coupon good off anything in the Deco-Pages store for the time of your membership, lots of Club Exclusive FREEBIES, and other great stuff just for members! If you join during September the annual membeship cost is only $15.00. Starting 1 October, it goes to $20.00 (still a fab deal). A year's worth of MEGA kits and SO MUCH MORE!!! If you bought 12 regular size kits, you would spend at least $48.00 and probably a lot more.

Above is my portion of the September Member kit.

And, here is a layout I made with one of the Quick Pages in the kit:

This is my son, who is ALWAYS drawing something. For school we have to buy extra notebooks and paper so he has enough to do his actual school work. Any piece of paper in our house is fair game - LOL!

I'll be back later with a sneak peek of the October Color Challenge stuff I'm working on for Deco-Pages. The starter kit is FREE for members (just another cool perk for joining!).
Check out this month's challenge here for more information....Dana's kits for September are fab!!!!

Grrrrrrr - Uploading Problems

Well, I wanted to share some freebies, but I am fighting with an uploading site (well, not really fighting). I cannot get the files to upload. I wanted to share them in a way that almost everyone could get them...RapidShare causes problems for some, and there are others that have bugs and still others that limit downloads. So, it looks like we may not have freebies for a bit. I guess I'll just share some layouts I've made and show you my kits until then.
I hadn't wanted to turn this into a big advertisement page.....but needs must when technology bites you on the hand - LOL!

Have a great day! I'll be back later with something...I hope!

Long Absence

Well, as I figured it has been a while since I posted anything...over a month, in fact. School has been very busy, and I have been creating some new kits and things for Deco-Pages members. I will be doing the October Color Challenge, so I've been trying to put together some really fabulous stuff for all who participate.
The school year is basically in full swing. It's a little rough around the are still learning their schedules and how to handle those big binders and planners. But, I have to admit, I'm not exactly having a smooth transition myself. It has been a busy summer, and fall is not looking any more tranquil - LOL.

I feel like posting a Freebie or I guess I will. Be on the lookout for them....COMING SOON!

Now, if anyone actually reads this...well, that would be a shock...but, please feel free to tell anyone to come and get the FREEBIES!!!
