New kit and a new FREEBIE

Woo Hoo!! I have finished another kit. I seem to be on a pink/purple kick these days. This kit was inspired by my rather new granddaughter who was born August 15. Obviously, she didn't choose the color pallette.....I did. But, I think she would love it anyway....if she were old enough to tell us.

My new kit is called.......Jessi's Room and will be available at Digital Scrap Garden very soon.

Preview of kit.....Jessi's Room.

Photobucket This preview was done by my wonderful daughter-in-law, Taun.....who just happens to also be one of my CT members.

This layout/preview was done by my other CT member, Angie!


I really don't know what I would do without my wonderful CT members. They are the best!

Now for the FREEBIE I promised.

This is another QP by Angie. She used Jessi's Room kit.

Download link expired. I hope all that received the QP have enjoyed using it.

We would really love to see any layouts that you have created using my kits or the QP's...just email them to me at:

Until Next Time!!!!

Friends, Awards, & a Freebie

It is really a wonderful feeling when you have friends and I've always known that I had my fair share of them. But, this past couple of weeks, I have found that I have even more than I even knew. It is such a good feeling. Thank you to all of my wonderful friends...whether you are someone that I can speak to on regular basis face to face or even touch....or one of my many, many cyber friends that I have have come to know over the past two years.

This past week, I managed to get some more trojans and viruses in my computer. This has really gotten me to the point that I am almost afraid to download anything. I am really getting a tad paranoid. But, anyway...because of this computer issue...I am waaaaaayyyyyy behind onposting many things to this blog.

First off, twice this past week I have been awarded the "ProximidadeAward" or "Friendship Around TheWorld Award". Originally this award was written in spanish, but it translates to highlight blogs that are pleasing or special in some way, and also to extend the hand of friendship around the world. I am to pass this on to 8 different people. Here it is:


It was awarded to me first by a very good friend, Vanessa, that I've been talking to over a K-Joi for the past 7-9 months. She is so sweet...just drop by her blog and check it out. Then it was given to me by Oase of Panda Bear Designs, who was in the Designer contest at K-Joi with me....of course we just recently had names to go with the numbers we were using during the contest. Now here are the 8 people that I am extending the award to:

1. LadyBug Graphix
2. Drea
3. WenchedGraphix Designs
4. Intense Magic Scraps
5. Carjazi Scraps
6. Lynn Anne
7. Dancing Princess Designs
8. Magick Scraps

Man...that was hard...I wasn't even sure I knew 8 people.. but these are some fantastic people....drop by and check out their blogs.

Now...Just look at what some friends did with my kits this past week. I am so happy with all these lovely layouts that I couldn't wait to post them.

The first four layouts are done by one of my good cyber friends...Lynn Anne. She is a real doll. I first met her over at ScrapFriends...but have been on many sites with her since.

Caden's Dream was used for this layout.

Pixie Majick was used for this layout.

Caden's Dream was used for this layout.

Lynn Anne use my paper pack Old World Tapestry and some elements from the Welcome gift at Digital Scrap Garden.

These next 2 layouts were done by good friend Vanessa over at K-Joi Studios. Vanessa used Taylor's Playroom kit for both layouts.



OK...i have promised you a freebie and that is exactly what I'm going to give you. My wonderful CT - Angie has created yet another fabulous quick page just for you. This one is done using Taylor's Playroom kit. I hope you enjoy it!

Until Next Time!

I want to introduce the fabulous ladies that make up the creative team for Dee's Delightful Designs. So, I present to you:


Here are some of their recent creations:

By Angie using my kit Caden's Dream.

By Angie using my kit Taylor's Playroom.

By Taun using my kit Pink Passions.

By Taun using my kit Fall Happenings.

Help me welcome them. I feel so lucky to have these talented ladies as part of my creative team.

Now.....if you read my previous post....then you know that I am still looking for 2 more CT members. I am not a tough person to work with. I only aks that you get at least one kit per month and that you do 3 layouts per kit and post them at 3 different scrapbooking sites (Digital Scrap Garden, K-Joi, and the 3rd would be your choice.)

If you are interested, contact me at Besure to put "CT" in the subject line. Send me a short bio, and a link to your gallery.

Until Next Time!

Was This a Bad Thing to do? OH & a FREEBIE

I have been trying to find two more digi scrappers for my personal CT. Well....I visit a whoooollleee lot of scrapbooking sites on a pretty much daily basis. There are some sites that I may visit one time a month or even less frequently than that. I know that is not a good site member....but I do have a life outside this computer.

Now....a couple days ago, I was on one of the sites that I frequent very infrequently....sometimes when I drop in, I don't even post....I just look around and leave. Well...I dropped in and there was a poll posted about digi scrapping. Now I've been a member of this site almost since it I know the majority of these ladies aren't really in digi scrapping. So, I look at the poll and there are like 8 who said they prefer traditional scrapping. Counting me on the poll there were 3 ladies that said they like digi scrapping.

So, after checking out the gallery and their creations, I pm these 2 ladies, introduce myself and ask if they would like to try out one of my kits. I told them to email me if they were interested. Both of them did email me.....after some discussion as to what I would want in a CT member...they both agreed to become part of my CT.....until today that is.

This afternoon, I checked my email and I had and email from each of these two ladies stating things had either changed for them or that they didn't want to endanger friendships they had built on the other site by being on my CT. I also had an email from the site owner blessing me out for recruiting her members away from her site.

First of all, I never ever asked these two ladies to leave the site in question. I did ask that they post layouts done with my kits at three different scrap sites...I listed two sites and the third was their choice. This is just routine CT requirements. I know this because I've been on a few CT's myself and still am.

One of the ladies even asked about posting the layouts on the site in question and I told her that was up to her, that I didn't mind at all. The only reason I didn't post layouts in the gallery is that I do mainly digi layouts myself and I know from being on the board as long as it has been in business that the ladies there don't really care for digi.

Anyway.....I emailed the site owner back and explained that I never tried to steal her members that I was looking for personal CT members for my designs only and not DT for another site. Well, needless to say.....she believes what she believes and that is all that can be said on that matter....because I would never repeat the response that I received back from her. I asked her to delete my account and was told that it had already been done. So, I am done with her and her site.

So, Now I ask you my readers....did I do anything wrong? I really didn't feel like I did...but I would like to know what you think.

OK....One of my CT members Angie...made this lovely QP for you using my Pink Passions kit that was inspired by the color choices from Sweet daughter in law that lives in Germany - Taun. I hope you enjoy this little FREEBIE!!

Until next time!

Sad Day But a Happy Day too!!

I have been so busy lately with homecoming, science night and getting ready for the next 9 weeks of school that I have sorely neglected this blog.

Well, that is not the only reason....I guess I am already missing my daughter-in-law and 3 grandchildren and they haven't even left yet! However, they will be flying out on Monday....going back to Germany! I understand why they need to go....but I sure am going to miss them.

Here is a picture of them taken this past weekend:


Until Next Time!!

Computer Issues

I have been having some computer issues. First, I had this popup that just kept popping up and wouldn't allow me to do anything on the computer. Found out it was malware....some doofus thought that by infecting computers with this malware that he could induce you to purchase his software to clean up the mess he created in the first place.

Then, I get a call from my ISP and they tell me that there has been a problem with spam and that it has been traced back to ....little ole me....I never bother anyone....I don't even forward the forwards that I get. How in the world could I be spamming anyone. Well....we suspected another worm/infection of some the ISP sent me a CD with some programs on it to download and run.

Good news........I think....i had 44 worms/trojans/infections, etc.....but they are all gone now!!!!! Woo Hoo!!!!!! Maybe I can play with scrapping buddies on Digital Scrap Garden now.....Cause goodness knows I've been having some serious withdrawals!

Here is a new kit of mine that in the shoppe at Digital Scrap Garden.


Now....I actually did some layouts this past week eventhough I was having computer problems. Check these out:

This one is of my grandaughter, Jessi. Iused my new kit Pink Passion.


The next four layouts were done as part of my CT requirements for Rick Evans of Scrapadilly.

The first two are using Rick's kit Summer's Ending.



The next two are using Rick's kit Pumpkin Fields.



I also have another kit in the works that I will be finished with real soon.

Until Next Time!
