PickWick DSO Mini Kit - Freebie

Good morning, all.

Can you believe September is almost over already.
It's about 3 am here. Is it raining where you are, yet LOL. It's pouring here with a nip in the air. Lady had me up at 1:30ish barking at something. I thought someone was at the door but I found her in her bed in her room, just sitting there looking out towards the window. I did a check but didn't see anything. Then I couldn't fall back to sleep; so what's a girl to got it LOL

As many of you know Digital Scrap Obsession, aka DSO, has a color challenge every month. (There are many types of challenges there too) Well I finally got my scraps together and 26 days later I still don't feel finished. I still have to make some tags or something to write stuff on, so that will be a bonus for you all later when I get some time to do them. So today I would like to offer you all what I did get done.
The Challenge offers 6 colors so all the elements and alphas come in 6's. There are 5 papers thou only 4 are shown. I threw one extra in at the last minute after making the preview, and I added a template into the bunch.
This mini includes 6 buttons, 6 clips, 6 photo frames, 6x two types of ribbons credited to Deb The Scrapping Cop, 6 deco line, 6 Pickwick alpha standard sets, 5 papers and 1 template.

And because it's a total of about 140mb or so I had to divided it into 4 files. :)

And there you go. I hope you could use somethings in it.
I best get back to bed cause everybody else will be up soon.

Fading into Autumn - Freebie

Good morning, Everyone. And Happy Fall, 2 Y'All :)

I have been so busy when I am not sleeping. I am feeling better but I still have some build up of stuff in my lungs and every once in a while a big chunk tries to suffocate me LOL and I still sleep a bit more then I normally do, but Dr said I should be okay in a couple of weeks.

In the meantime, life goes on and I had to create some stuff for Tyler and his friends. Their class went on a local field trip to observe the monarch butterflies preparing for their migration to Mexico and learn about the species. They also got to observe a multitude of dragonflies. They had to do a little project after and the mini kit below is a part of what we made.

Since I woke up a 2am for some odd reason and couldn't fall back to sleep I thought there was no better time then the present to get this up. It's been sitting on the drive for a couple of days LOL. It's not much but someone may find some use for it.

The above is part of a two pager.

The above is something I did with some of the other papers I made.

I may get a chance to share the rest of it next week.

I also did a little mini based on Tyler school colors for his yearly photos and I am adding more as I go along. I won't have to have that one ready for a bit.
I am moving right along with my 365 project and just finished doing the first week of September.
I also do a two pager for each month in review and I am all caught up on that. This was August.
This is also part of a two pager.

I am a bit behind on my blog reading and email pick ups but ah, such is the life of me :)

Aloe Alpha - Freebie

Hello Everyone!

Since I can't concentrate long enough to actually create anything I went through some of my older stash today and found an alpha I did for a layout back then.
I found quite a few items but I was only able to sit long enough to give you this freebie today.
It's a bit late in coming as Media Fire was having issues earlier so I left it till this evening.

The alpha is large in scale and it takes 3 downloads to get it all. I also put in a couple of items that I used on the page I created, which I looked for but I burnt it to disc already so I can't show it to you LOL. The edges are a bit clear so the stuff behind will show through some. Hope you can use them.
Here are the links for you.

I have slept most of the day and I am off now to sleep some more.

Thank you for dropping bye.

The Good, the Bad and the Scrappy

I hope you all had a fantastic long weekend. We had beautiful weather here for it.

Unfortunately I spent much of my time sleeping through it LOL I really shouldn't laugh because although I was feeling better at first but on the 7th day I wasn't feeling all that great. I appear to have something else wrong with my lungs now.
I went in on Tuesday for a follow up and I have to go back next Tuesday for some more scans. My left side lung hurts and my left side shoulder and neck. I feel like I am breathing fire, like my lungs are dried and hot. It's a weird feeling I have never had before. I hope those pills I took didn't do this to me cause pills are suppose to heal not damage, right LOL
Joe said to me yesterday, 'Gees, I hope you don't die on me.' That's how bad I appear to look to him. And I do look horrible too. I've lost weight: I use to be 135lbs now I am 111lbs. I have big black bags under my eyes: I never had this before even from loss of sleep. Something is wrong for sure, what it is, who knows.

I woke up at 7 this morning and since I am not taking those pills anymore I can finally read some. So I went to catch up and found I had way to much for me to deal with all at once so I am going to take it slow, a bit at a time.

So here is what I read so far.
Ellie Lash is leaving the scrapping community :( She is having a retirement sale which ends September 30th. If you love her designs then head on over to her store and grab all you can. Everything is real cheap.

Stone Accent Studios is having their annual Designer Contest and are onto round 2.
Brownie Scraps is almost finished their annual Designer Survivor Contest.
Ginger Scraps Designer Survivor is finished and the winner is March 76. Congrats!
The September blog trains have left the stations of ADSD (School Daze), CSD (Education Station), Pretty Scrappy (Loads of Learning), & Stuff to Scrap (Fall Festival).
That's all I got so far.

I need to rest, folks. I'll try to come back later.

Enjoy your day.

Feeling Better But...

Oh yes! I am feeling much better now.
Thank you for your concern, Mandy.

I went to the doctor and she gave me some pills, I hate pills. These pills were good ones and my lungs and throat are feeling way better but the pills make me tired so I have been sleeping a lot. I got 10 days worth so I will be dozing a lot till they are done LOL.
Joe is going to pick up Tyler this long weekend cause I can't drive. He doesn't want me falling asleep on my way up or back LOL. Funny but true cause the other night we were eating and I just dozed off. Lucky it was pizza and we were sitting in the living room watching t.v.
The plumbing inspectors were here on Tuesday and found the problem was coming from next door and got the next door neighbors plumber to fix it so no more stench. Joe dealt with it all while I was sleeping. I think Joe said it was something to do with their bathroom or something. He told me while I was half a sleep, I think, it could have been a dream though LOL
Of course I haven't been scrapping anything but as soon as I can keep my eyes open long enough to do something I'll share it with you all.
I tried reading some of your blogs this morning and I just couldn't concentrate, like right now my eyes are all over the place.
I am going to go lay down on the sofa. When I feel my better I'll make you all something and post again.

Until then...
Enjoy your day and the long weekend (Canadians)
