Bunny Cates November Color Challenge

OH GOSH!! It's so hard, for me, to resist a Color Challenge. Then add Kim B's design as the free giveaway for participating, and I'm "on board". I had been playing around with layered felt flowers recently, so I have put together some using the color palette provided.

Free Vintage Tags

It's been a day of Lifetime movies for me. Sometimes you just need to take a back seat to life and do something mindless. However, it's impossible for me to be "completely" mindless. HA! So, I opened up Photoshop during the movies and created some tags to put into my scrapbooking stash. Maybe you'd like them for your Tags stash too.

Fall in The Air - Free Kit

Here in the Bay Area of California, the air is definitely changing. We've had such a mild summer and now it seems like Fall is creeping in. Fall is my MOST favorite time of the year.

I've kind of missed building a scrapbook kit lately, so I decided to sit and spend some time creating something with the Fall colors that should be upon us pretty soon.

Feel free to click on the preview if it looks like something you could use to create a layout. AND enjoy!!

Great Grandson Anthony Gardening & FREE Quick Page

This is a scrapbook page that I just finished for our Great Grandson, Anthony. When he comes to visit, he wants me to take him to the back yard so that he can water my plants. Fortunately, his Mom, Samantha, usually has an extra change of clothes for him, since he ends up a tad wet. He's now 4 years old and such a good helper.

Scrapbook layout was started from a template by Simply Tiffany Studios. Scrapbook papers and elements from Secret Stash Digital Scrapbooking 's free kit, "Hello Fall". The kit is free if you LIKE their Facebook page and sign up for their newsletter. The BOY element is not part of the kit and I don't know the designer to give credit. If anyone knows, please let me know and I'll be glad to give credit where credit is due.

If you'd like the free layout as a quick page, click on the preview shown below to download.

Afternoon at the Rose Garden

Ron and I took a nice walk through our cities local Rose Garden since all the roses are in full bloom and gorgeous at this time of year. Also gave me a good excuse to play with the new camera. So, there was a lot of "stopping to smell the roses" going on. And an excuse for another scrapbook page.

Girlfriend Road Trip

Nothing like a girlfriend road trip to bring on the fun. This page was done by Danna. Danna Earnhardt Atkins, Judy Filkins and myself set off for Eureka, Ferndale and the Redwoods, last month, to play with our new DSLR cameras. I think that between all of us, we must have taken about 1k photos.

Coloring Eggs

Happy Easter to all. It's tradition, with my DH and myself, to color eggs the day before Easter. Kids have been gone, from home, a long time ago. But we continue the tradition. Which means it's been 34 years and counting now. Hard boiled eggs taste so much better when they are colored, don't you agree? This is the page I put together to remember it always.

Paper and Elements came from Raspberry Road Designs', Easter On the Farm, and Natali Designs, Joyful Easter.

Grand Daughters Scrapbook Page

In December, our Grand daughters came to Calif to visit family. We were so happy to have them stay with us. They are "such" great gals. Their cousins took them to San Francisco for the day and it turned out to be a typical rainy, foggy day in the city.

To remember their visit, I completed a scrapbook page using Kim B's Designs kit called Mulberry Fields and a template that she shared with us. And be sure to check out her Blog as it's always a fun read. If you'd like the template, you'll find it at the bottom of her posting for that day and mentioning "last Friday's post".

DSO March Color Challege - FREE Kit

It's my birthday and I've been celebrating all month long. Which is only right, at my age. Never mind, I'm not telling you what that is. HA! I also figured that I deserved an iPad2 and have it on order. Can't WAIT until it arrives. When it does, I'll probably be locked in a closet somewhere so I won't be disturbed. Until then, I have lots of celebrating to do this month.

I participated in the DSO Color Challenge this month and have produced a small kit that is FREE for you. The colors this month that I had to work with are shown below.

Jan Color Challenge-Free Kit

All I can say is, thank goodness that December is over with. The day after Thanksgiving, I had a Diverticulitis/Colitis attack and found myself in the hospital for 10 days. Then I spent another 30 days gathering my strength back to normal. Needless to say, Christmas just wasn't the same this year. But the highlight of the whole month was a visit, by our 2 Tennessee Granddaughters for a few days. They put a smile on my face and I miss them already.

And now that I'm feeling like my old self again, I'm finding that I actually want to create something. So, I jumped into the DSO Color Challenge this month and created this small scrapbooking kit.

It's free for you to use in your personal scrapbooking layouts. Click on the preview to download.
