Happy New Year and a freebie!

Happy New Year!!!! I am so looking forward to 2009 and all of the new possibilities that it offers! I am designing a little bit more, I am into making cards allot more and I am making new and wonderful friends everyday! ...Should old acquaintence be forgot.... out the window! We never want to forget those people that have helped us to evolve into who and what we are, those wonderful souls that give us encouragement and that extra little push when we need it the most...even when we really don't think that we do! So, here is a toast to all of those wonderful people in my life, here at home and in the digital world! My dearest Husband, my son, both of my Grandchildren, my sweet, sweet mother, my brother and SIL (God bless them and help them continue to heal from their loss), my best friend and co-worker-Beverly, Brenda Cook(who I could have never made it without in the world of digital and whom I dearly love), Lianne Carper and Kimberly Stewart and Terrell S (all of whom have been my inspiration, not to mention that they all have huge shoulders and hearts and share in the task of keeping me SANE), Chris, Tammy, Bonnie, Darlene and Audrey (all of whom have become my rocks of gibralter and closest and dearest friends), Tina Chambers and Lauren Bavin ( if it weren't for these to wonderful ladies, I may have never started digital scrapbooking at all! Check out all of their stuff over at DSP.) and all of you that have given me your kind words, help and understanding, wisdom and honesty throughout the years.

Thank you all so very much for EVERYTHING that you do for me and for others. I hope that all of you will continue to be the wonderful inspirations that you are and will find happiness and good fortune during 2009 and beyond! HUGE digital HUGS!

Christmas Fun!

Just wanted to share a few photos of Christmas in South Mississippi! I was even able to sneak in a photo of my Nephew! We don't see him very often since the loss of my niece in June, so being able to see him and get at least one photo was a real treat!

First there's the tree(before the kids found the gifts underneath)!

Greg(Son) and Alana

Taylor and Wall-E

and Christopher(my Nephew) on his new John Deer Tractor!
Now, there is a story behind this photo! I asked Christopher if I could take a photo of him and he said, "No! No picture!" So, then I asked him if I could take a picture of his new tractor and he said, "Sure!". SO...This is not a photo of is a photo of his tractor! HA! Kids are so funny sometimes!

It's not the end.....

Oh my goodness! can you believe that we are at the end of another year already? 2008 has not been the best year for my family! But, when I look back, it wasn't been the worst year either. There have been allot of wonderful things that have happened this past year...even in spite of the tragedies.

But it's not the end! It's the beginning of a whole new year! I hope that everyone has a wonderful beginning to this new year and that the wonderful continues on throughout!

To honor the END of 2008, I have this little freebie for you! I do hope that this is something that you will enjoy and use!

This is the page kit that I made for the first round of the Designer Finder contest. I decided to share it with all of you because it is made in 200 ppi and I cannot sell it in my store at Scraphead. If you know someone who would like to have this kit...PLEASE send them to my blog so that they can download it for themselves...DO NOT SHARE THE LINK!

I would love to see any layouts that you create with this kit and hear any comments that you may have!

I just don't get it.....

Well, I didn't make it through the Designer Finder Contest. I made it to round 5 and I am VERY proud of that but I was not one of the chosen few that made it into the apprenticeship program or as a full designer. I applaud those that did make it! Their designs were exceptional...but then so were everyone's. Who knows what is in the eyes of the beholder and everyone does have a different opinion of what they like and what they think will work...or even what they think is up to DSP standards!

Anyway, here is another layout that I made with my round 5 page kit! I haven't had ANY problems making layouts with any of the kits I designed! OH...and just in case anyone is wondering...I did not use any other designers designs or CU products. Everything is my own (even down to what I actually made with my new Wacom tablet) and I am VERY proud of that too!

This is that time of the year!

I LOVE this time of the year and I hope that everyone is enjoying the season with family and friends. I am still running around trying to get the finishing touches on all of my Christmas shopping and I still haven't gotten all of my cards sent out yet! Kent told me last night that if I didn't have them all sent out by Saturday, there really wouldn't be any point in sending them at all! 'Sigh' I guess he is right.

Well, at any rate, I have been trying to get some layouts completed with some of the Awesome kits that I purchased over at DSP! Why purchase someone else's kits when I can make my own? Because sometimes you just see something that someone else created that you just gotta this awesome kit called "Jingle all the Way" by Erica Belton. You can pick it up here at DSP: Jingle all the Way

This is my Grand-Daughter the first time she ever went to visit Santa, several years ago. She really was cautious about getting in his lap and to get the photo, Santa gave her a big tickle! Photo turned out perfect and now she isn't afraid! Now, I just have to figure out how to get Taylor to sit in his lap for a photo!

A Special Memory

Here is one that I created with the page kit that I made for round 5 of the DSP Designer Finder contest. This has always been one of my favorite photos of my Niece and Nephew. It is even more special to me now since we lost my niece in June of this year.

Thursday, December 11, 2008


WOW! I am totally astonished that I made it round 5 of the contest at DSP! There is some really awesome talent in the gallery! I know that DSP can't take all 21 of the final round ladies on as apprentice designers but I have a feeling that it is going to be VERY hard for them to choose!

Anyway, once again, we were given a color pallette and the assignment was to create a trendy kit. Then we were to create an element pack to go along with the kit. Here is my entry! We will find out sometime after the 16th whether or not we have been chosen to go forward. In the meantime, I am on pins and needles!

I just realized that my bestest friend has a kit NAMED the same! Well, Kimmie, I promise it was not intentional that I named this kit the same as yours! Actually, "Oh My Stars" is the first thing that came out of my mouth when I saw the's what it turned out to be!

If you would like to check out all of Kimmi's AWESOME designs, you can do so at SBE, here:

I promise that you will not be disappointed!
