Suzi & Anon

Just popping in for a spell to address a couple of issues.

1. Anonymous the passwords for any zip file offered here is always in red. If you are coloured blind this may be a problem. The password for CeeCee is party.

I thought about the blindness issues the other day and decided that all future passwords would be in bold letters. (never two words and never in capitals)

2. Suzi I got your email. Check yours in the am tomorrow. I'll send them out later tonight after I put Tyler to bed.

Download issues can happen to any one, including myself.
Recently my gf sent me to a file to download which I did and the file showed it was 48+mb. I scanned it with my virus protection software and then proceeded to unzip it and poof win zip claimed it was a bad file. I told my gf and she resent it and viola it unzipped.
Just this morning I also got another file and the download was intermittent (having breaks in the download). Thou the end file was good it left me wondering what was going on. I noticed a great fluctuation in download speeds too. Once I changed browsers I had no issues. I usually use Firefox but IE was my hero this morning LOL.

I also had problems with Blogger this morning. The site was suppose to go down at 2am and it usually lasts for about an hour thou they claim 10 minutes. This morning I went to publish the comments and it claimed the site was down. I checked with Marie at DigiFree and she too was having issues, with Google.
The outage is now posted for tonight at 2 am. I'll be in dreamland by then LOL

Firefox and Google. Perhaps the two are just too tightly fitted together. LOL

I am off to be with my men for a while.

Thanks for reading this post I hope it helped.

Enjoy your day.

Afternoon, All!

I hope all you Mother's out there had a fab weekend! It sure was heaven here LOL

I was able to get another quick page done. This is one page from a set I did for my cousins daughter, CeeCee, short for Cecilia. She is such a sweetie. This is her having fun at her 2nd birthday party. Her third is coming up shortly.

Here is the preview of the quick page.

With Love Quick Page - Freebie

Good Evening, Everyone!

It's overtime between Pit and Wash with a tie of 3-3 and I wanted to get this to you before midnight as I was able to finish another quick page for you all today.
My mother loves swans so when we happened upon two nesting mothers this morning I took several photos. This is one of them.

In the background the father is rushing to get to his mate to protect her in case we may want to cause her harm. Lady does that to the waterfowl even if she is far enough away LOL

The beautiful flowers I used in this quick page are from Lynette's Photo Art.
The lace I used for the framing is from Gunhild Storeide.
These two terrific ladies offer free resources.

And here is your preview...

Happy Mother's Day Qucik Page - Freebie

Happy Mother's Day, Ladies!

Are you ready to relax and enjoy the servitude. It's always that way here on Mother's Day. I do not have to do a blessed thing. No cooking, no cleaning, no laundry, no mowing the lawn, no sweeping the front porch, no watering the lawn, no shopping, no dishes, nada, nil, zip LOL I hope you will have the same, cause you deserve it! I love being a Mom!
I also get to visit my Mother, bless her soul, I love you Mom! See you Sunday!
And we will be visiting, Joe's Mother, too.

I spoke with my Mother today and asked her if I could use one of her pics for a quick page for you all. "No close ups", was her request, "I like my privacy. And pic one from when I was young" Okay, Mother. I hope this pic is cool with you.

My Mother use to be a camp councilor at Camp Bolton. This is a pic of my Mother, the tallest lady, her assistant, and two of her charges (children she took care of), out in front of their cabin.

Here is a preview of the quick page.

I have been slowly working on a couple more quick pages. When I get them done I'll post. The boys are going off somewhere today, this will leave me some free time to play. But I won't be in on Sunday so I will...

Wish You All
The Happiest of Mother's Day's.
May your day be filled with Love!

A Mother's Moment Quick Pages - Freebie

Good Morning, Everyone!

I had the opportunity to download a fantastic mega kit yesterday created by some of the folks from Stuff to Scrap. It's called A Mother's Moment and it's filled with all kinds of goodies.
Do you know this place? It's a fairly brand new place created by Nicole Parker of Digi Designs by Nicole. It has a store, a blog and a forum where you can have tons of fun. If you're into Speed Scraps then you just have to drop in to the Stuff to Scrap forum and have a blast. It's fun and it's easy and you may even get a surprise :)

After I downloaded A Mother's Moment I knew I had to make some quick pages with it. I only made two so far but the possibilities are literally endless and I will probably create more when I can.
I contacted Nicole and asked her for permission to allow me the opportunity to share these quick pages with you all and she was very pleased and agreed to allow it. If you haven't picked up this mega kit yet I suggest you do. You will not be disappointed. You can start by going to this post on Nicole's blog where you will find the list of all the participants.

Here is one of the pages I created with Joe and Lady taking in the scene at the lake.

And here is the preview of both. Both are available in the one download.

Click on the image to download.

NSBD - Fantastic Weekend

Good Morning, Everyone!

Did you have a fantastic NSBD? I sure did. I had so much fun. I spent about 100 bucks, tried my hand at a few challenges and met some really cool people. I didn't get to blog hop much because...
I spent the rest of my free time outside. It was a gorgeous weekend. The temperature was ideal.

This morning I did some blog hopping and found out I missed out on some terrific blog trains while a few others are just beginning.

Have you checked them out yet.

There is
Country Hollow Creations - Spring Fever
Faith Sisters- It's for the Birds
ADSD - Sunshine Beach
Ginger Scraps - Modern Mommy
Stuff to Scrap - A Mother's Moments
And I am sure there are more of them out there.

I also read some good news and some bad news

First the bad news...

Pamela from Digi Treats will be retiring. I was so sad when I read this. Still sad by it. I will miss her greatly. I hope she returns. Unfortunately no one can contact her and I just bet thousands would be trying. She will be greatly missed by many :(

And the good news....

Mandy from Mandy Made Digi Bits has joined a store and will be selling her kits. Ye haw! Fantastic. You go girl! Best wishes to you on your new endeavor :)

And LouCee has also decided to join a store and start selling her kits. Ye haw, again! LouCee is also a hybrid scrapper and very well known for her creative talents. You go girl, too :)
On a sad note thou, LouCee's Lenny passed away. Lenny is one of her poodles. It broke my heart. I know how much she adores her pups. And I had been following Lenny's sad story.
Very sorry for your lost, gf :(

I only hopped into a few blogs and forums this morning but I am sure there is tons more going on in Scrap Land. I'll try to catch up more later. Right now I am going to give my eyes a break, venture out into this beautiful day and enjoy it for a while.

Enjoy your day.

Lake Path Quick Page and Alpha - Freebie

Happy (Inter) National Scrapbooking Weekend, Everyone!!

It's going to be a fantastic weekend. I hope you are all excited and join in on the fun, because there is fun to be had on every scrapbooking site. Forums are going to be rocking the servers.

I had attempted, twice this morning, to upload 2 files to Media Fire and they both failed to verify, twice. I was so disappointed that I couldn't get this to you all. I finally gave up after waiting a 1/2 hour with no verification in site. But they are up now and verified so let me get this to you.

As many of those who live in Ontario know it's been raining the last couple of days. I was kind of thankful for the rain because it meant I didn't have to do one of the things I was suppose to do. This left me with some time on my hands. Extra time means FUN.
I sat down at the computer, opened my trusty graphics program and began making a quick page and then I thought, lets take this to another level. So I separated all the parts of the quick page and put it all into a mini kit, with an alpha, so you could make pages too. Of course I got carried away and made several papers too LOL By the time I was done I had made 335 mb of stuff. WOW. How was I going to get all that to you. So I had to go back and think it over.

Here is what I came up with....

Watch This spot!!!

As I add the files I will underline the downloads below.

May 1, Today you will be able to download the quick page and alpha.

May 2, Tomorrow I will give you the elements and the paper that made up the quick page so you can make your own.

May 3, I will give you some papers and the second set of elements.

May 4th, I will give you papers and more papers.

There is no password to these files.

Here are the views :)

My Layout.

The Quick Page.

The Mini Kit

I am going to try to upload the other files asap.

Don't forget to drop in every day for the updated links if you want the Lake Path Mini Kit.

Thanks for reading my post today.

Enjoy your downloads and your weekend.

Happy (Inter)National Scrapbooking Weekend, Everyone!!!
