Abbey Bonus - Freebie

Good Evening, Everyone.

It was a wonderful day here despite the nip in the air. After waking up we all downed some medicine, coughed and sneezed for about a 1/2 hour, ate, then headed out to the park to walk Lady. On the way back we bumped into some friends and chatted it up for close to an hour while the dogs played and nearly freezing our toes off LOL. After taking Lady back home we visited Joe's Mom and took her shopping. By the time we finished we headed back home for another dose of medicine and some lunch. We were then suppose to go to the haunted house charity party but it was too packed to even get in so we went back home and got Lady and headed up to the mountains of Bronte Park and spent the remainder of the afternoon there. Then we came home for dinner, ate, and had some more medicine. I then cleaned up and did some house chores while the guys played some war game, 1942 I think it's called. And while they are out in the living room right now watching Spider-man 3, I think, I am in the den chatting it up with you at the moment. Now I have only been given 1/2 an hour, by Tyler, to be in here, so I best get to what I am doing here. As promised, a bonus freebie for you. Yeah!

We're Sick! Yippee!

Good Evening, Everyone.

The other day I mentioned that our family hadn't been sick yet this season. I am happy to say that we finally are, yippee! I know that may sound strange being happy that we are sick but I like getting it out of the way LOL We only have colds; runny, stuffy noses and coughs. It never fails, when I mention stuff like that it comes around. Okay, who's the fly on the wall?

Here is a layout I made with parts of Abbey.

I have a few more layout I did which I'll share sometime tomorrow when I post up a couple of more freebies. I am a bit on the exhausted side tonight so I won't chat you all up any further.

Enjoy your day.

Abbey Papers - Freebie

Good Morning, Everyone!

How was your Wednesday?
It was rather cold here but beautiful once I was out in it for a while.
Did I miss Indian Summer? It usually comes around this time of year. I'm going to cross my fingers and hope it's just late. It's our favorite picture taking time. Lately my index finger is freezing on the shutter button and snapping with gloves on just doesn't feel right. Half the time I can't feel if I am pressing down on it. LOL And there is still too much greenery and wind. I've been trying to use the Kids and Pets setting more when taking photos in the wind and it kind of works. Still I need a new camera because all my photos are coming out dirty looking. Not a good layout does a dirty photo make. Fixing them with all these filters just doesn't cut it either. Nope, I need a new camera. Maybe I'll find one under the tree this Christmas (hint hint) {SLR please} :)

Today I have the remainder of the Abbey papers for you. There are two downloads. Here are the previews. If you would like these papers just click on each preview image to go to the download site.

Click images to download

Well I hate to cut you all short but I have some things to do before Tyler wakes up and Joe comes home.
Thank you for taking the time to drop in today. I hope you enjoy your download and your day.

Abbey DSO Mini Kit - Freebie

Hello Everyone.

It's pretty early here. I fell asleep at 7 :45 pm and woke up at 2 am. Boy are my sleeping patterns out of whack lately. LOL This is what long weekends do to me. :)
We had a fantastic long weekend thou. How was yours? We had roast duck for Thanksgiving, it was delicious. Did lots of walks and took lots of autumn pictures. I even got to wear my winter hat and gloves; it was that cold. We visited everyone on our list and then some. And I was able to get some free time in to make some pages with the DSO Colours that Kim's hubby gave us this month.
I'll share with you today some of the elements and a couple of papers. I also have another 5 papers which I'll post up tomorrow.
Here are the previews of what you are welcome to download today.

2 frames, 2 flat ribbons, 1 house cluster, 1 joker bird, 1 maple leaf
and 2 papers

Sorry about the previews. I must have saved them in the wrong d.p.i. Blogger compresses everything LOL.
In re to the house cluster and bird, I have left them flat. You may bevel them if you like to give them some rounded depth.

Thanks for stopping in today. I'll post the rest of the papers sometime later. I am off to get some more zees.

Enjoy your day and your download.

Have we lost the reason why we make scrap books in the first place?

Howdy all!

Happy Thanksgiving, Canadians!

It's been awhile hasn't it. I tell you life is good though and I am enjoying every minute of it.

I am pretty much back to my healthy self. I still get chunks that want to choke me though LOL
Doc says I should be prefect (is there such a thing) by November. I hope so. I never in my wildest dreams thought that sewer gas could harm a person in such a way and for so long.
I get lots of fresh air which, as of late, has been wet, but it helps. It's been raining all day and night and would be great if it rained all day LOL Selfish yes, less people on the road, less accidents, shorter queues, less people spreading germs LOL It's flu season & H1N1 season here and come to think of it none of us has been sick yet.

I finally finished reading all the blogs and emails.
Looks like a few more designers are leaving the scrap world and a few more are just giving up selling in stores and went back to giving out freebies when they can.
Times are tough for many and they just can't afford to buy stuff they don't really need (food and shelter being more important)
A few others just came right out and admitted that designing has taken over there lives so much that their families are being neglected. That is so so sad.

I've always thought that scrap booking was suppose to be a hobby of memories.
Have we lost the reason why we make scrap books in the first place?

If I miss out on scrapping I miss out, so be it, I won't lose any sleep over it. But if I missed out on my family I would regret it for the rest of my life. They are my world and my world is better for having them in it.

I was able to pick up Kim B's Colour Challenge swatch for October. I have been promised some personal time during this Thanksgiving long weekend which I hope to make something for this months 365 pages as I haven't done any yet and hopefully share what I make with you.

I haven't done a speed scrap yet cause the timing just doesn't equate with my free time which hasn't been much.
Here it is at 4:45 am. I fell asleep at 9:30 pm LOL and woke up at 3:35 am
Joe won't be home till 7 am and I have to go back to sleep before that or I ruin their day. 'Their' being Joe, Tyler and Lady. (This is what I have been told lately on Sat's LOL) I know they are up to something, time will tell. Hopefully, once they return we have to go to Grandma's, then to Joe's cousins, then shopping for some boots, then home for dinner by 5pm, eat by 6 pm, take Lady out for a walk at 7 pm and watch the sun go down and back home by 8:30 pm at the latest, do the dishes, watch a movie, have Tyler in bed and hopefully asleep by 10, then pass out myself. More then likely we may all crash in the living room watching a movie LOL
Busy, busy, busy.
Ah, life is beautiful!

Thanks for stopping in. Chat with you all later.
Enjoy your day.
