Merry Christmas to all

Well I haven't been on since the beginning of the month.  Been busy busy busy getting ready for Christmas.  I haven't had much time to scrap, (sigh).  But I want to wish one and all who visits my blog a happy holiday season.  I will be spending Christmas day at my Daughter's home.  Her hubby is Australian and they do a big lunch.  Of course afterward we won't be able to enjoy the HOT weather because we will have snow.  LOL.

Frosty Mornings

Well the weather is getting frightful and a little frosty, so here is a great kit to scrap those moments.  Mrs. JayBob Designs has done a great job of capturing the frosty mornings.  I made two LO's to show off her kit.  Hope you enjoy it.  Then you can go to Designs in Digital and check out this awesome kit.
index.php   I also made a freebie for you.  A set of frames to go along with this kit.  See below

We had a very warm day in November and Jay was over and so we gathered the leaves together.  She had so much fun playing in them on the sidewalk barefoot.  Yep it was that warm.

I really love this picture of my two nieces.  One is the oldest and the other the youngest of 11 kids.  I am so glad that I moved closer to them so I can see them once in a while.

Well here is the freebie I told you I  had.  I hope you enjoy them very much.

Seasons Greetings by Topsy Turvy Designs

I am back to repost this.   Sorry to anyone who came here and found nothing.  I am still learning on how to do QP and how to post them.  So please bear with me.  I think I have it corrrect now.  I love Naz's kit Season's Greetings.  It is filled with beautiful papers and elements.  I used a lot of the elements to decorate the tree in my first LO.

I love the holiday season.  I love the decorations in the stores and on the homes.  I love to see the children with their eyes aglow as they wait in line to see Santa.  I love to see the nativity scenes in the common squares (even though some think that it is not politically correct), I love to see presents under the tree but I really love when it snows and everything is so white.  I confess too that I love to shovel
the snow.  Hmmmmm must be a little nutso.

I love the papers in this one. The wreaths in back of the pictures add such a nice touch and I love the
stockings with the grandkids names.
So with not much more making you wait, here is your freebie QP(whoops have to go save it as a jpeg)

You can get it here:

Here is where you can find this adorable kit.

How about another freebie:  Here are some fancy frames that you can use.

You can grab them here:

A fantastic kit Down Memory Lane

Oh I am totally in love with this kit.  Down Memory Lane. You can find it here  product.php
I feel so fortunate that Naz has asked me to be on her CT team.  So I created these two LO's showing off
this awesome kit that she made.  It is so versatile.  I love the elements that she has put in this.

As you can see, you can use it for a lot of different photos.

Why do people have to be mean?

I am relatively new to blogging and so I am learning how to post and put links in and all that stuff.  So maybe I am more tolerant of other people who have troubles on their blogs or sites.  I was very disheartened to read that some people have sent Royanna of Divine Digital some hate mail because her site is not back up 100%.  It was sad when their site was hit by a hacker and the cost of getting it back up has been phenomenal.  I guess the average person doesn't realize the cost.  I realize that it is a business and perhaps they are suppose to suck it up and get going.  But I think that one forgets that most of the scrapbook sites are started by average people like me and you.  Stay at home moms,  moms who need to have a second income coming in, some have husbands out of work or can't work due to being disabled, or retired moms, and so they share their creativity with those of us who lack that gift.  I for one appreciate them very much.  So when a site goes down, I think we all need to have some patience and stand loyally by the sites we love.  We need to help them back on their feet if we can.  And you know you can, by participating in the site when it is back up and supporting the designers at those sites.  I have another site Digital Freebies that has been going through big changes and as a supporter of that site it is discouraging to me to find things missing every time I go on.  But slowly it has been re-emerging.  It's like a butterfly coming out of its' cocoon.  For someone to bad mouth that slow process doesn't really accomplish anything.  Although maybe for the disgruntled person, it makes them feel good, but it makes everyone else feel crappy.  We don't know what is going on behind the scenes that perhaps they can't jump to our wishes of having things back in order.  Who knows what trials and tribulations they are having?  For the Divine Digital site, Royanna not only had her site hacked into, but her Mom had a heart attack and is in ICU. So she has had to travel back and forth between the hospital and trying to get her site back up.  For Digital Freebie, I don't know the story, but I do know that it cost mega bucks to get a site changed and back up.  Well I guess I have said enough.  Maybe if we are kinder to one another it, and not be mean, things will go along  a lot smoother.

A freebie from the Northern Lights Kit

I made a QP for you out of the Northern lights kit.  you can pick it up at Designs in Digitals

Here is the kit.

I had a lot of fun playing with this kit.  I made too LO (in a previous post) and decided to make a
QP.  You can grab the QP  Here.

When you go into 4 share it shows the QP with some little squiggly things on the photo part.  Don't worry those do not show up on the QP at all. All you have to do is put your photos inside and you are done.

Northern Lights by Mrs JayBob Designs

I love the name of this kit - Northern Lights.  When I was a child living here in MA. I saw them or at least my parents told me that was what it was.  I am sure that seeing it closer would be better and more beautiful.
This kit brings back that memory.
Here are two LO's that I made with it.
