My Oldest son is 33 today.....FREEBIE 4 U

Thirty-three years ago my oldest son was born weighing 8 pounds 9 1/2 ounces and was 20 inches long. Of course, I thought he was the sweetest, most precious baby there ever was. In my eyes....and my sister's....and my mother's eyes....he was the most precious baby in the world....but he grew up. Then all of a sudden he wasn't the most precious thing I'd ever seen anymore. He turned into a spoiled child I had nothing to do with that....then into a brain dead know the type....wants what he wants and nothing else will do.....then he had a few years of clarity...where I thought the great adult would break through....but alas, it didn't happen until last I can honestly say....that at 33 he is an adult. Gosh....It Is About Time!!!!

Now this layout doesn't show all the phases of him that I mentioned above....I wanted you to get the full benefit of what a real adult version of a JASON would look like.

I made the kit to scrap his birthday layout especially for him using his favorite colors....well he also said black and I don't think I used any black. So without further adieu......Here is my oldest....33 year old son.....Jason.



Just a reminder.....but now there are only 8 days until that NEW scrapbooking site ....called sKrap Happens.....opens it doors to the public. There have been quite a few of us....some designers...some not....working very hard to get everything ready for there would be a great time during the Grand Opening. Make sure you put it on your calendar to join us....January 8, sKrap Happens.


See you there!!!!


Now it is FREEBIE time....yesterday you got the uppercase letters for the Graffiti Alphas....and today you will be getting the lowercase letters. I hope you have as much fun playing with these as I had creating them.


Don't forget to come back tomorrow for the final installment of the Graffiti Alphas....tomorrow you will receive a download with the numbers and symbols.

Until Next Time!!!

I must was a little harder today because it is getting so close to Christmas break being over and my having to go back to work....Don't get me wrong....I love teaching....but it is WORK!!!! Don't ever let anyone tell you any different.

On a designing note....I have a couple more new kits that I need to get previews made and get them in my store at Moo Two Designs....can't sell them off my least I haven't figured out a way to do that yet....have you...if so, please tell me!!! I will get the previews posted as soon as I get them finished...maybe later today....most likely tomorrow...hey...that means I have something to blog about tomorrow...well go figure!!!

Just a reminder here folks......Only 9 more days and the NEW scrapbook site called sKrap Happens will be opening its doors with a 3 week Grand Opening. There will lots of challenges, games, and prizes....You will not want to miss this big event.

Soon to be released kits..Oh...and a FREEBIE 4 U

Good Morning all!!

The sun is shining here even though it is pretty cold outside.....but I am warm and toasty inside at my computer.

Can it really only be one more week before 2010 is gone! Where did the year go?? It seems like just yesterday I was trying to get accustomed to writing 2010 when writing the date on anything!

Oh well....I guess the old adage...."Time Flies" is very appropriate here.

Guess I should move on to the original idea for this post and show you my new releases.

This first kit is called Winter Wonderland and full of blues with a touch of green. It contains 8 textured, solid/patterned 12 X 12 papers with 12 elements all created at 300 dpi for optimal printing if doing hybrid projects.


The next kit is called Awaiting Spring....basically because that is exactly what I am doing....I really don't like cold weather. This kit includes 6 textured, solid/patterned 12 X 12 papers and 10 elements all created at 300 dpi.


Ok....I promised a freebie and this morning I am giving you a QP made using one of my older kits that has been revamped called Timeless Treasures...have a look at this kit.


Timeless Treasures (among other kits) is already in my store at Moo Two Designs and the others will be there today.

And the freebie I promised is here:



Until Next Time........Happy New Year!!!!

Bad Blogger-ME....FREEBIE 4 U

Yes.....that is me.....I've been a very BAD blogger. I haven't posted anything here since October. I should be duly ashamed of myself....and believe me....I am!!

There has been plenty going on in my life.....maybe I just didn't make the time to get on I think I will try to schedule time to blog....this is NOT a New Year's resolution....because ....just like most people...I tend to break all of the ones I make about 2 - 3 weeks after the we aren't going there with this.

I do have a legitimate excuse for staying least I think it is...I have been helping some friends get a new scrapbooking site going....the site is up and running although we haven't opened to the public as I can't tell you the name....but the site is going to be awesome and the GRAND OPENING will start on January 8, 2011....and run for 3 weeks. We will have lots of games, challenges, prizes....and tons of fun....I will be back later to let you know where this Fabulous NEW site is you can all join in the fun!!

OK....I promised you a freebie due to my being such a bad blogger. I took one of my older kits and revamped it....I have really learned a lot more of the finer details about designing just in the past few months...thanks to some of the ladies over at Moo Two here is your FREEBIE:



Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!!!!

Until Next Time!!!!

"As his head entered the box more small clawing hands grabbed at it, pulling at his hair and ears, he felt the sharp talons enter his nostrils, dig into his neck and shoulders.

I can't wait to have them back on this side of the pond......even if they won't be really close to where I least I won't need a passport to visit them. Can you tell that I am excited about this????

OK...on to other things....I was surfing yesterday on a scrapbooking site that I visit, Scrapadilly and Drea was having her Friday Night Boredom Fighters I know yesterday was not Friday....but this time the challenge will go on for an entire week to allow all of us to maybe be able to do some of them. So today, I was checking out the challenges and saw the Color Challenge....I loved the choices of palettes so...I made a kit that I could use to do the challenge.

Now if you are interested in meeting some really great, friendly people...this would be the place to go!! There are many more challenges for this shindig and you have until August 29 to get them finished. Go check it know you want to!!!

Come on Over to the Farm

I've been playing some over at the know Moo Two Designs! Well, this month I am hosting the Barnyard Bingo and we are having so much fun.

I am also hosting another challenge called Fireside Tales. This one is all about that dreaded thing that most of us have problems with doing on our know....the journaling!!!

Oh before I forget, beginning on September 13 at Moo Two, we will have a Designer Challenge will begin at the Moo Two Corral. If you are a budding designer, you might want to jump on over there and sign up before all the spots are taken. Ssshhh....don't tell anybody....but I actually joined this contest. I don't normally do contests because I am not a fan of the ones that go on popularity. I want to be judged based on the quality of my work. That is the beauty of this contest....we are all issued one knows who we are. We will be judged on our ability, not our popularity. This is going to be so much fun! I can hardly wait until the fun begins.

I haven't gotten much done in the way of layouts. I have been really busy with the start of school back on August 3....hopefully things will slow down a bit and I will be able to get some pages done to post.

Hope everyone has a wonderful week!!

Until Next Time!

New Layouts

OK...I'm feeling much better now and it is a good thing too....Because on Tuesday I go back to work....summer vacation will be over! It seems like it just began....but alas...We all must return to work.

BTW....I will also be updating my photography blog today as well. So be sure to go check out my photos!

OK...on with the promised layouts.

The first one is of my youngest granddaughter who was caught sleeping on a pallet outside their home in Germany....I believe her Mom took this on July 4, 2010 at a 4th of July party they were having.

This was done using freebie kits for the Garden Rainbow challenge at Digital Scrap Garden. I used freebies kits that were made for the challenge by His Kid Designs & Rumki Designs to make my layout.

All Tuckered Out-600

This second layout was done for the Digging Up Letters challenge at DSG. I used the freebie kit that has been given away each day as the Petal of the Day. This months kit was provided by On My Own Designs. The photos in this layout were also taken by her Mom, Tanya.

Just Taking a Stroll -600

As a kit designer, I haven't done much lately...but I do have a free paper pack that you can get, if you are interested. Just visit my Facebook page and "LIKE" it...leave me a comment and I will send you the link for the paper pack. Here is my Facebook link.

Don't forget to check out my photography blog to see my newest photos.

Until Next Time!!!

Feeling Icky

Sorry. There are no new layouts for this week. I had a week long professional development workshop last week, which was fabulous. I really got a lot of new ideas to try in my classroom for Reading, Math, Science, & Writing.

However, I have been fighting a horrible sinus infection and finally decided I needed to actually do something about it before it was time to head back to the classroom. So, today I am feeling the effects of the know how the antihistamines and decongestants make you feel.....YUKKY!! Well that is me today. But, Hopefully it will cure me of my ills and I will be back to right in no time.

Nothing much else going on in this neck of the

Until Next Time.....

New Layouts

I have had quite a bit of fun playing with the challenges over at Digital Scrap Garden this week. I have gotten several layouts finished and a few more in the works.

This one was done for the Font Fun challenge


This one was done for the Scraplift Challenge.

This is for the Template Challenge.
Template Challenge-600

This last one serves two purposes actually. One is for the Garden Salad Challenge and also to try and persuade my oldest son that he needs a new picture for his Facebook page.

OK...that is all I have for right

Two New Layouts

I have been really busy today. I finished two layouts, which are actually challenges at Digital Scrap Garden. I did the usual household engineering know...laundry, dishes, floors, etc. Then I worked on my big unit (Japan) for my gifted students for the Fall session of our classes. Now its time to go and see if I can find some spectacular shots to catch with my camera. The light will be just about right.

But, before I go here are the two layouts I finished this morning.

If you have checked out my photography blog, then you will recognize this photo as one I shot on my little run-about yesterday.


This next one is of my beautiful baby granddaughter, Jessi...who currently lives in Germany where this photo was taken by her Mom (Tanya aka taun) using a Canon Rebel xSi.

Day at the Lake

OK...I have also finished a little paper pack that I have decided to give away to everyone that leaves a comment on this post.(I will need a way to get the link to perhaps an email...could be given)...the two papers that make up my blog background are part of this paper pack...Here is what the pack looks like...


So, if you want the paper pack......please leave a comment....Even if you don't want the paper pack...PLZ leave a comment. I really love reading all the comments.:)

Until Next Time!

New Photography Blog

I have given the issue of combining my scrapping/designing blog with my passion for photography and decided that my photography needs it own area for display.

So, all of my photography will be displayed on a new blog called Dee Bibb Photography. Go ahead....jump on over there an check out my first post.

I took a little drive this afternoon and got some pretty good shots from around my area.

I hope you enjoy them.

Maybe I will get some layouts done by the end of this week and get them posted.

Until Next Time!!

OK...My entry for I Heart Faces.....

Furbs is part of our family....sometimes I think he believes he is human. He really likes to pose for the camera. So, I decided to use this photo of him to enter the "pets only" theme weekly challenge over at I Heart Faces.


More pics later!

Until Next Time!!


For as long as I can remember, I have had a camera to point and shoot my family, friends, pets, you name it. I have always been the "one" behind the camera. I have some photos that no one wants seen because I seem to just click, click, click most of the time.

However, here recently, I have begun to look more into the "subjects" of my photography and have taken a REAL interest in the learning aspects of what is behind all of this 'point & shoot'.

Since I don't have any small children at home....most of my photos are likely to be my cat Furby or Furbs as he is called most of the time, or perhaps my dear sweet husband.....who tolerates my incessant clicking without too much complaint. Actually Furbs complains more than the husband.

I don't have an expensive camera. I just use a Kodak EasyShare C533....but for now..that is fine while I learn more about the finer aspects of photography.

I took these photos yesterday evening.

Furbs Complaints


And of of my DH...Charles.


I would love to see your comments on my photos....I am an amateur and trying to learn about photography...It has always been a passion of any constructive comments are quite welcome. DIL put me on to this has all sorts of great might want to check it out. I Heart Faces.

Until Next Time!!

Oh My!! Has it been that long????

I guess it has.. But in my defense...I have been really busy trying to get finished with that graduate degree that it seems like I've been working on forever!

You know what??? I did it!!!! I finally finished and have since graduated....Yeah me!! No!! I can not put a "Dr" in front of my least not yet....who knows...maybe someday!!

OK...enough of this dribble....I have a nice surprise for you....Because I have finally graduated....I decided to put my entire store at KJOI Studios on sale at 50% off from 6/10/2010 through 6/30/2010. It will even include anything NEW that I add to the store between this time....and hint...hint...there are some thing sin the works to be added...)


Enjoy shopping....and make sure you check back often during this period for any additions..

OK...gotta go run some errands for Until Next Time!!!!

Saturday, January 23, 2010

Oh My!!!

OK....first things first......

Is there anybody out there that would be willing to take on one of these graduate classes and finish all the assignments for me??? NO!! I didn't really think could I take the comps if I had someone else do the work for me right!!

Anyway...I do hope to get in at least one layout today before I jump away from the computer.

If I do, I will come back and post know it will most likely be of one or more of my wonderful grandchildren.

So until later.......

Thursday, January 21, 2010

Just a Quick Note!!

I know its been a little bit since I posted....but I really should not have put off taking these two classes that I now need to finish my graduate degree. Because now......they are "kicking my butt". There is just waaaayyyyy too much to do for someone that also works full-time at one job and part-time at another job.

I haven't even had time to finish the other layouts that I have started. But, hopefully, I will be able to get them finished within the next couple of weeks and get them posted for viewing.

I really can't wait to get this semester over and finally graduate! I am really tired of going to school!!

My LO for the Day

This is a LO of my granddaughter that is 12 years old and I haven't seen her in a year...It is a really long story and I won't go into it here...but I think the LO says just how I feel.


I used the January 2010 collab kit from Digital Scrap Garden.

You will be seeing more LO done with this kit. It is huge and GORGEOUS!!!
