Hello!  Good Morning ... or Afternoon I guess, as it's after 1:00 here.  I hope your day is going well.  Me?  Well, thank you for asking.  I spent the morning cleaning out the storage closet here at work.  I'm covered from head to toe in dust, grime, and slime, am all sweaty, and would really like to take a shower!!!  At least it's done before the boss gets back from out of town tomorrow.  Not that you care, but I just wanted to share with someone.  :)

Click on our little guy here for today's download link.  I think I'm going to miss him next month! 

See you later ... I'm off to empty all of the trash from the clost and CLEAN UP!!!  whew!

Shabby Summer LOVELY CT Layouts and FREEBIE!!!

Wow, I am SO far behind on sharing all of the awesome layouts and designs our SUPER CT members have been working on!!!  SORRY LADIES!!!!  Uh ... I guess it's because I'm so in awe I can hardly type?  Hmmm... more likely that I get too distracted doing the million other things that life has available that I can't get to everything I want to.  WELL, these ladies did such a great job, that they are a PRIORITY -  just take a look!  HOW FUN!  If you don't get some good ideas from looking at these ... well, I'm pretty sure you will.  :)

Natasha (Alohacowgirl) looks like she really had some fun with the kit ... have you ever seen a cuter baby????

psssst ... this last one above and Dina's below were done with just the FREE Shabby Summer mini kit in the forum's Photo Potluck Challenge!

This next one was done by my "DigiSister" designer Dina for the challenge .. WOW.

I may have posted this one before, but it's my favorite ... my son, his girlfriend, and little Gracie.  I made these for Gracie to remember the day by, yeah, that's it.  NOT for me to enjoy of course, for the sweet little girl.  uh huh.  yup.  sure.  you betcha.

SOOOOO.... I'll save some more for another posting ... so much cuteness just can't be good for you!  Well, it can, but we can only take so much inspiration at once.  Yup.  That's it.  Here are a couple of QPs for you ... ENJOY!

Click on each preview for DIRECT DOWNLOAD.  It may take a few minutes; they are full sized 12x12 300 dpi files.  When they finally appear on your screen, they will be in PNG format.  RIGHT CLICK on each one and save to your computer.

And this lovely page from our SUPER CT Natasha  (hear the roar of the crowd applauding?)  Great Job Natasha - thank you for sharing this QP with us all!

Lawn Flair FREEBIES from Arlene!!!

Here are some goodies from our favorite cluster-maker in the whole world!  THANK YOU ARLENE!  Click on previews for download ... they are both set up for DIRECT download; when you click on them, it may take a while, but eventually the PNG file will show up on your screen.  Just right click on it and save to your computer.  Easy Peasy!  :)

And who doesn't love a sweet little kitty and a few birds!!!!
Have a great evening!  See you again soon ...

Mystery Daily Download FREEBIE - July 27

Whew ... just sliding in to make it still a Wednesday download ... I had it all ready to go, and it didn't post!!!  Oops.  Sorry!  Here's today's download of our lovely Crazy Critters ... they ARE fun, aren't they!  I think they'd make a great card or invite to a "lawn party" (I always thought that would be great - everyone come over and mow and weed your lawn!  ha ha).  Hope you had a great day, and I'll see you in a while with Thursday's download ... AND there's more to come from our lovely Arlene!

More CT creativeness and another FREEBIE!

Jeannie and Judy, two of the SUPER CT members, shared a couple of layouts they made with the Naturally Spring kit - even though we're in the middle of Summer, some of us who are not always caught up on our scrapping may be still in Spring (who, me?? yes, me.)  What pretty ideas!  Thank you Jeannie & Judy!

By Jeannie K ...

By Judy ...

Here are a few freebies from this kit - I just had to have some fun with it once I saw these lovely pages!

Click on previews for download links

Busy CT Members! and a FREEBIE!

WOW, the super CREATIVE TEAM ladies at DigiSisters have been busy!  They've made some awesome layouts with some of the kits I have for sale at the STORE.  Take a look, and let's have some OOOHHH's and AAAAAH's to share!  :)  You can see their entire galleries at the DigiSisters Gallery - you can make your own gallery there also!

These were made by Deb K (username "dinkeek") from the Gaudy Yard Art / Lawn Flair Series


Deb even made a freebie QP that she's giving away on her BLOG ...


Some other creative layouts from the BEST team on EARTH ...

Judy (jldream) did this cute little squirrel  layout ...

Jeannie K shared these next two from the "Fancy Fru-Fru by the Roses" kit in the Lawn Flair series ...

Doesn't it just make you want to start scrapping your outdoor photos??  I know I do!  In case you'd like to check out the Lawn Flair Series, you can click on any of the previews below for a link to the store.  BONUS - if you spend only $5.00 you'll get the WHOLE DigiSisters COLLAB KIT for FREE!   Over 70 Papers and over 140 elements!

If you haven't been checking the DAILY DOWNLOADS, you might want to while the links are still active - you can get the whole first part of this series for FREE!  It's called Crazy Critters in the Garden - there isn't a preview yet because it's a MYSTERY KIT (and because I'm putting it together as we go!)  The links will remain active only until August 4.

If anyone is still reading this .... THANK YOU!  I appreciate your interest more than you can ever know.  You make this so fun to do!  I'll have some more fun stuff with the Shabby Summer kit a bit later today.

Lawn Flair Freebie from Arlene - Frame Cluster 6

Good Morning!  Just think - just a short 5 months from now, Christmas Day will be over, and we'll be hitting the clearance sales!  Yippee!  You have to love a sale, don't you?  That's a little depressing in one way, I love Christmas time.  I can't wait to start knitting some goodies ... wow, I'm really getting ahead of myself.  I'll concentrate on SUMMER first!  Here's the next two pieces of our kit ... getting down to the end now - only a few days left!

Speaking of the end of the month ... do any of you have any ideas on what we should do for a daily download next month?  Any kit ideas or other types of things that would be fun on a daily basis? Hmmmm . . . I think the "back to school" thing is taken care of pretty well, so I'm trying to think of something a little bit unique.  I'll see what YOUR creative minds come up with!  Let me know if you get a chance, ok?

Click on our friend for download link ...
Best wishes to y'all for a GREAT DAY!  If you get a chance, check out the Forum and Gallery - AND the store!  There are some great freebies to be found!

OH, before I forget to mention it ... the BLOG TRAIN is getting ready to roll on July 31 (this coming Sunday)!  There are a ton (well, not literally since it's "virtual" product) of freebies on the blogtrain blog - check them out!  Get FREE STUFF!
