Heads Up

For all of you who like digital scrapbooking, especially digital scrapbooking for free, I've got some news for you.

Last week Oscraps held a contest as part of their birthday celebration that involved going around to designers' blogs to obtain a secret word. While the official contest is over, many of the freebies are still available if you are willing to do a little blog hopping. I just downloaded about 15 scrapbooking goodies for free!

That's something I love about digital scrapbooking. So far the ONLY money I've spent was to buy an album to put my pages in. If you're wondering how I've been able to do it, you should check out all of the links in the "GOODIES" section of my blog. Each of the sites listed there has freebies available for download.

Anyway, back to the blog train. Here's what you need to do:

Start by going here.
At the bottom of that post you will find a link to Sue Cummings' blog, which has another freebie. She has a link to the next blog, which has a link to the next blog...and I think you get the idea. It's a blog train.

You might have to scroll down a bit to find the freebie since the posts were written last week.

Happy hunting!

Pay it Forward Take 2

I did this last year for three people, and it was fun!

The first five people to respond to this post will get something made by me!

My choice.

For You.

This offer does have some restrictions and limitations:

1. I make no guarantees that you will like what I make! (Though I may ask some questions during the process.)

2. What I create will be just for you.

3. It'll be done this year (might take a little while).

4. You have no clue what it's going to be. It may be a story. It may be poetry or an article. It may be something sewn or crocheted. I may bake you something and mail it to you. Who knows? Not you, that's for sure!

The catch? Oh, the catch is that you must repost this on your blog and offer the same to the first 5 people who respond.

Oh, and be sure to post a picture of what you win when you get it!

The Seventh Date of Christmas

Forgive me for mentioning Christmas in March, but...

apparently I forgot to make a post about these back in January. These are pages from the one day, one night trip Henry and I made to Fredericksburg for our year and a half wedding anniversary. =)

P.S. I can't even remember if we've been on date number 8 yet.
P.P.S. If you are married, what do you and your husband do for dates? Heck, even if you aren't married, what do you and your significant other do for dates?

Shirt Dress

Grosgrain is doing another great giveaway. If there's one thing I'm a sucker for it's clothes, and who can pass up the chance at free clothes??

P.S. This would be nice too.

February 12, 2009

I know that February is a few days shorter than the other months, but didn't it seem to fly by? Before I know it, it will be time for March's 12 of 12. Anywho, here is the one for February. What the journaling doesn't tell you is that we had a free Chick-fil-A breakfast that morning. (I love Chick-fil-A. Both their food and the fact that they are closed on Sundays.) And also, that picture of me in the bottom left corner was taken by my cousin's son Ethan. He likes to take "artistic" shots. If I hadn't bent over, I wouldn't have been in the picture at all!

I kept this one easy as far as materials go. The papers, journal block, and swirlies are from the new Shabby Princess "Happy Go Lucky" kit. If you haven't seen it yet, go check it out!

One of the things I decided to purchase with my free $20 at two peas were the Rounded Corners Templates by Crystal Wilkerson. I used Template No. 9 for this page.

And the font is called Pea Jay.
