SC Critters - Freebie

We are all packed up and ready to go, folks. As promised I have one more freebie for you.

I hope you all know of Debbie aka The Scrapping Cop. A while back Debbie shared some great doodle type designs of critters and birds. I needed an elephant and a bird for a couple of layouts I was doing at the time and dug into her folder on my drive and began to play around. These are the results.

Click on image to download.

The preview looks horrible. Did Blogger compressed my image? I appear to be losing bytes when I upload things, first the zips and now images. Gees. Thank goodness for vacations :)

I will check in before I leave so if you have any issues get them to be asap. I don't know if the nearest town has an internet cafe or similar so I don't know if I will be able to check while I am on vacation.

Hope it all goes well.

Enjoy your days till we chat again, all.


Fixed - Freebies Zip File Errors

I received 8 messages in regards to both freebies downloads having errors.

I re-zipped both the files and have re-uploaded them. I had no issues with the file myself.

Please try not to download the file more the twice if you encounter issues.

Please let me know, asap, if these new files work.
I leave at 1 am. I tried the new zips and they work for me. I sure hope they work for you. Let me know, k.

Both previews in the posts below have been updated with links to the new zip files.

I will be back late tonight with another freebie for you.

It's so beautiful out so I am going back outside. We are going to start packing and repacking the truck at 8 pm. Fun, fun, fun, I tell you. It's always comical watching us do that LOL.

Enjoy your day.

New Links to freebies without scrolling down.....


Fabric Deco Flowers - Freebie

I was going through my stash this afternoon while the storm was raging outside and came across these Art Nouveau flowers I made in April which I forgot to share with you. These 3 are on a 12x12 canvas. The preview shows the up close fabrics I was experimenting with back in April, LOL

Don't forget to read the Terms of Use included in the zip file, especially if you create your own kits or quick pages. There is some good news in there for you :)

Click on the preview to download.
Link updated.

Please remember that I password protect all my zip files. You will find the password in the above conversation. Please swipe it or write it down as you will need it to unzip the files.

Please note: If unzipping fails it is because the password for the zip file is not in bold letters.

Well that's it for me tonight. It's 1:30 am and I am off to dreamland.
I will pop in before we leave tomorrow night with another freebie for you so stay turned ;)

Loving yah.
Enjoy your day.

Michael 'King of Pop' Jackson Dies at 50

Yes, Nicole, it's true!

Today, Michael Jackson died of a cardiac arrest due to the medications he was taken, just like Heath Ledger. Wow, 50 years old. So long, Michael.
It's 10 p.m and they have an entire show going on right now about him.
The number of viewers will be phenomenal.
DH, loves the Thriller music video. My first memory of Michael right now is the song, Ben.
Thank you Diana Ross for discovering the Jackson 5! Go Diana.
Thank you Quincy Jones for making Micheal's star shine.
Rest in Peace, Michael.


13 Overlay Designs - Freebie

I noticed overlays are becoming more available in the scrap world lately so I dug into my stash and pulled out 13 of them for you. I thought it best to get them to you now as I will be leaving for our vacation on Friday and won't be back for 2 weeks or so. I'll post when I get back.

It's nearly 5 and my headache is slowly subsiding, ever so slowly, and I need a tea. So I won't keep you long.
I hope you can find some use for these overlays. If you do use them I would love to see the results. Just post a comment, which are moderated, leave me your web site url in the comment and I will post a link to your results, if, of course, you post it online. LOL
Yes, you can use them in any free kit you give away too. Send me your links. Please keep in mind I will be on vacation so please wait till I come back for me to post your links.

I noticed I forgot to post the dimensions of these overlays in the preview. Sorry about that. They are all 12x12 : 3600x3600, in PNG format.

Here is a preview of the 13 overlays.

Click on the image to download.
Link updated.

Please remember that I password protect all my zip files. You will find the password in the conversation above in Bold letters. Please swipe it or write it down because you will need it to unzip the files.

I need a tea. Advil makes my mouth dry LOL.
So I will bid you all farewell, until we meet again.

Enjoy your day.

The Lovely Award

It's late, 3:30 am.

I have an extreme headache that woke me at 2 am. It was so hot today and not a good hot either, and it's only the end of June. I could hardly breath, the air was so dead and hot. I am dreading July and August. If you are one of those who do not believe in global warm, at this point, I would have to say you are a nut. I feel sorry for those who have to work or even go in to any one of the cities. I seen 3 city centers from my friends balcony yesterday and they all had this gray haze over them. Sickly.
So after I woke up I thought what they hey, check out what the scrap world is doing. So off I went to check out a few buds and found I received an award.

It's my first award and from my Canadian bud in Alberta, Mandy, from Mandy Made Digi Bits, too.

Here are the rules for this award:

1. Put the award on your blog.
2. Include a link to the person who gave you the award.
3. Nominate 7 or more blogs.
4. Leave a message on their blog letting them know they have an award on your blog.

I won't have a hard time giving this award away. There are so many terrific scrap artists. My trouble will be picking just 7 of them. But without further ado the nominations are.

Each of these people are totally phenomenal.

1. Nicole from Digi Designs, Stuff to Scrap. The entire group at Stuff to Scrap are also phenomenal. I could nominate them all.

2. Kim B, Digital Scrap Obsession. The entire group at Digital Scrap Obsession are also phenomenal. I could nominate them all too.

And these are just a few of the fantastic people of scrap land.

I have a special post coming up next so I will get on to that.

Thank you Mandy for this wonderful award.

Free Course with Jessica Sprague - Limited Time Offer

I had a bit of time this afternoon after picking up my mail, to gad about in scrap land and decided to drop into Jessica's place first and ended up getting side tracked. LOL
Jessica is offering a Free Course in July (6th) that I signed up for. You can sign up too but you have to hurry because time is limited; sign up before this Friday, June 26th.

I haven't been scrapping anything, just hanging out in the great outdoors doing stuff and getting a tan. I have lots of photos but no gumption to sit inside and scrap. What can I say but....

Summer! It turns me upside down! Summer summer summer! It's like a merry-go-round.
Magic: The Cars

I hope you are all enjoying your Summer in the North and Winter in the South.
I am off to tuck in Tyler.
Enjoy your day and don't forget to sign up at Jessica's.



Happy Summer!

It's Almost Summer

My goodness, I just finished reading approx. 30 days worth of postings from nearly 200 blogs. I missed soooo much in scrap land during that time its phenomenal. There were a few freebies I wish I wouldn't have missed out on but that 's how it is when freebies are only available for one week and I go on vacation for a month LOL. What's that saying, "You snooze, you lose."

Well it's raining here, again, today. It rained a good one yesterday too, washing out Tyler's baseball game yet again. Poor kids, they didn't get to play much this semester. Tyler has already said he doesn't want to be on the team next year. He wants a sport he can actually participate in on a regular bases, like basketball. It's indoors so not much chance of getting rained out. LOL
School is finished on Friday and Tyler will be heading up to the cottage for the summer. Ah, to be a kid, oh the fun. Joe and I will be heading up there for a few weeks for his vacation soon too. Yup, another holiday for me, too.
I just came back from a holiday, of sorts. When my family comes here from Europe everything I am doing in my life stops on the dime. They load me up in their rental vehicle and lug me around visiting family members that don't live near us. Like my cousin in Thunder Bay, that was a hoot, and my aunts sister in Vermont. I always have a blast with them which is why I don't mind dropping everything when they come.

I am still transferring pictures over from the camera. I did 4 4 gig sticks already. It's taking me a bit of time because I burn them to disk right away. I don't trust computers enough to let stuff like this lay on the HD for long. There is always that 1 in a million chance that something could go wrong. I have only had one HD crash on me and I literally broke down and cried. I had so much of my work on it. I am sure many can relate to that. I burn my stuff to disk as soon as I can.

I will be missing a lot here in scrap land simply because it is almost summer and when summer gets here I will be enjoying it. Mind you there are always the rainy days and the night times when I can try to get these family photos scrapped but I wouldn't put any money on me doing a lot of that. My family has already been warned not to expect the unexpected LOL

I must get on with my day, thou. I have several things to do today that must be done.

Until we meet again....
Enjoy your day(s)

And a month later...

Hello, Everyone!
Yes, I have been quiet MIA. When was my last post, May 13th.
We got in yesterday morning and it wasn't till later in the day that I was finally able to get online to the scrapping world. 5 hours wasted on multiple software updates and a 3 hours and 35 mins and 31 secs virus scans.
I checked out a a couple of sites after the hockey game (YEAH! PITTSBURGH !!) but I was just too tired to do any further catching up or write you all here. Today got busy too, look at the time, just after 11. I am bushed. It will take me a few more days to adjust and get back into the swing of things. I'll fill you all in more later. I have way too many pictures to scrap n share.

Ah, the pillow is calling.

Enjoy your day.
