Freebie and Super Saver Saturday June 28th!

I've had this blog for a while now, and I realize that I haven't really done much "blogging" in the sense of writing and sharing. This is a little odd because writing is something that comes fairly naturally to me - I studied it in college and have two English degrees (okay, you can stop laughing now) - but sharing is not really me.

I am not a very social person. In fact, most people have found me to seem "stuck-up" when they first meet me because I don't talk a lot in social situations when I don't know people. I am a lot better now than when I was younger. My mom could not get me away from a book long enough to say hello to visiting family. I am also not good at talking on the phone. I really don't like it - never have - except for the brief periods when I had crushes on boys. I could talk to them for hours...LOL. And, with my friends and most family I will talk...some might think too much.

So, I have made it a personal goal to try to share something every once in a while. I would like to once a week, but I know that won't happen - LOL - life is too busy. But, at least you will know I am trying.

Here is today's tale...
Every morning one of my children - I am not saying which one - gets up before everyone else. This child prepares breakfast at exactly 6 AM every day because that is the earliest house rules will allow it (due to the noise creating breakfast usually makes). I am usually up about 5:30. Today was no different. I hear this crashing and clanking coming from the kitchen - more than the usual noise level...I go to investigate (mind you, this is BEFORE coffee).
I ask, "What is all that noise?"
The child looks at me and says, "I was putting the dishes away."
Now, normally this would be a cause for rejoicing in any household...a kid actually helping out without being asked. But, no, not in my house, and NOT this morning because as is typical - when my kids help out on a volunteer basis, it usually means they are doing it horribly wrong.
Don't get me wrong. I love them all, but I'm not sure how my skull hasn't exploded yet.

So, I look at the child - take away the coffee mug about to go onto the shelf - and say, "But, these dishes aren't clean. The dishwasher did not run. Can't you tell they aren't clean?!?!??" Apparently those really expensive glasses do not give one the ability to see dried mac-n-cheese or coffee stains on ordinary household items. Sigh.
So, as I listen to the hum of my dishwasher, I present to you my great deals for Super Saver Saturday today at DigibyDesign!

It is my Alisa Collection - all of it is on sale for 50% OFF today ONLY - June 28th!

I've created a matching freebie for you. Here's a cute sticker alphas and some flowers and flower clips.

Talk to you soon!

Super Saver Saturday Freebie!

You should know what Saturday means by now!
More great kits for 50% off at DigibyDesign! This Saturday, June 21st, I have 2 awesome masculine kits on sale for you for $3.25 and $3.00! These are just what you need for all of those Father's Day layouts you are still working on and wonderful for all of your graduating gentlemen. The images are linked to the kits in the store, so just click 'em to get more details.

First we have Luke - a blend of blue, tan and grey with heaps of manly elements:

The second 50% off kit is Matthew...a grungy mix of green and brown...look at all that cool metal!

And, I also have a freebie for you! Here is a little quick page I made from the Matthew kit and the AddOn kit. I have a 12x12 and an 8x8-inch page in the file...sorry if you scrap rectangles (you might be able to resize it). I'll try to make some of those soon.

This freebie has been retired.

PSSSSSST - Because of the sale you can actually get both the Matthew kit and the Luke kit for the price of just 1 of the kits - so it's like buying Matthew at full price and getting Luke for free (or vice versa))...well, buy both on sale is $6.25...the regular price of Luke is $6.50 and Matthew is $6.00. You get the idea, though!


Friday, June 20, 2008 Last!

My design friends all know that I hardly ever have time to actually create layouts of my own because I spend so much time designing...but I thought I would pull out a few of my favorites to show you. So, these are my proof that I do sometimes get a chance to scrap.

This was for a challenge listing 10 things...I thought I would share some odd stuff about myself.

Kit is Ophelia by RoseMadeDesigns
Fonts are Arial and Mom's Typewriter
Stitching Action by Atomic Cupcake
Here is the rosebud playing the grass, just having a great time pulling it out and looking at it.

Kit used is Backyard Explorer by RoseMadeDesigns

These are the big cats at the Louisiana Purchase Gardens and Zoo. It was sooooo hot. I felt awful for them, but they still made gorgeous photos for this layout.

Kit used is Matthew by Rose MadeDesigns (on sale Saturday at DigibyDesign)

Template by Michelle Swadling - Font is CK Good Dog (lol)

Stitching Action by Atomic Cupcake - Felt Action by Tandika Star

I hope to have more soon. I made some nice quick pages today that I hope to scrap with, and I have tons of challenges I want to do myself - including the 3 I run...LOL.

Have a great day!


Tradition Part 2 freebie - Papers

As promised, I have the second half of tradition for you! I'll be leaving Part 1 up for a short while longer, so if you missed it...scroll down. Today you get the papers!!!!

Freebie...Sale News...Club Deco Garden Party

I just wanted to remind everyone that my kit retirement sale is still on at Deco-Pages until June 30th! I have over 40 items like this kit - Spring Blossom - on sale for up to 50% off! After June 30th, you will not find these kits for any price.

You can find Spring Blossom here at
Don't forget to snag the matching quick pages and addon kit, too (they are also going to be retired!).
I made a matching freebie for you today. It has 6 background papers, 2 flowers, 1 bow, 1 frame and 1 glitter flower border. All these pieces coordinate with the Spring Blossom kit, so you can use them all together.

You also have just a few more days to join Club Deco and get this wonderful MEGA kit created by the Deco-Pages Design Team. This preview shows just a very small part of the kit you will get for free with your membership this month. This month's kit is 1.4 GB....yes, that is GIGAbytes!!!! Every month the designers create such wonderful goodies for the Club Deco members. And, this is not all you get.

You also get exclusive FREEBIES, FREE monthly color challenge kits and 10% off your Deco-Pages store purchases!!! It's a great deal for just $36.00 a year or 3 months for just $15.00! Can you get just a MEGA kit anywhere for $3.00????? And, if that was all you got, that would still be a steal! And, I am just one of over a dozen designers contributing to this month's kit. On July 1st, all of the designers will be selling their Garden Party kits individually - but getting them all could cost over $ annual membership is less than that!

Here is my contribution to this month's kit: 5 backgrounds, 4 flowers, 3 lace ribbons, 3 lace bows and 3 big brads AND 2 quick pages - could you even get just this much for $3.00??? I don't think so!

Find out all about Club Deco here:
