Cutie Hooty.....2nd freebie of the day!!

LOL.....I guess I'm having too much fun!!

DSO posted their June Color challenge and after looking at & LOVING the palette, I had to jump right in and design this little kit!

Now, I am not one for "trendy" animals but owls seem to have become somewhat of 'the rage" and after starting some papers, the kit screamed that it needed an owl!
Thanks to Inkin Creations for this cute CU template!!

This kit just sorta created itself and I am happy with the final result!

I also made a LO of my daughter....and yes, the QP (from the layout) is also yours FREE!!!

So, without further adieu, I introduce Cutie Hooty!!

6 papers, 2 ribbons (one is pearl embellished), 1 chipboard tree, 1 felt tree with blanket stitches as a seperate png, one circle border, 2 flowers, 5 gemstone brads, one gemstone page border, 1 owl, 1 glitter spray, 1 bead spray and 1 laced journal mat

In no way are any of my freebies to be forwarded through any internet groups, separately or as a whole.
They are not to be uploaded to any hosting site.
Please no direct linking to 4Shared.
Send your friends and groups to my blog instead.

Please take a second and leave some love....more love = more freebies!!


CU Ribbon Sampler


Yes, I know....everyone has ribbons....everyone, that is, except me!
I had a techie day a new scanner and bought a new graphics tablet.

I have spent the day showing my son how to doodle right on the computer.....he may even create a few doodles for you later in the week!

Tonight, I invaded my ribbon stash to test out the scanner. It works wonderfully and I had fun extracting these ribbons for you!

Four ribbons....both color and greyscale versions included.

CU okay....please read my TOU!!

Red Light, Green Light QP


I had a long day and am tired so I couldn't get much designed.

My surgery was fine...the 5th in a series since Dec '08 to fix my jaw which has been closed for 9 yrs due to heavy scarring from having a wisdom tooth pulled.

I did manage a QP for my Red Light, Green Light kit.

If you haven't downloaded the kit or the add-on, feel free to go back thru the blog archive.

Another Surprise Freebie!! are getting majorly treated this week!
Thanks to all who commented both here on my blog and on the 4shared site! Although the downloads outweigh the thank yous by a long shot, I am still grateful for the little bit of appreciation!

DSA has a monthly themed challenge. You need to create a kit with the month's theme and send them the link and it may be featured in the next month's newsletter. Well, here's to crossing my fingers!!

This month's theme was childhood games. One of my favorites was Red Light Green Light. Basically, one person would stand at one end of the blacktop and be the "stoplight" the rest of the kids would stand at the other end. When the stoplight yelled Green Light, you ran. When they yelled Red Light, you stopped. First person to reach the stoplight won.

In honor of my favorite childhood game, I bring you:

Red Light, Green Light

8 papers
5 buttons
4 glittered page borders
stop sign sticker
stoplight sticker
2 ribbons
2 frameS
one shoelace
one star brad
one license plate
one chain link fence piece

I'm back!!


Well, I am back from a little hiatus. I lost a bit of passion after The Scrapping Garden closed and have been out of the scrapping loop for a bit....but this past week I have been venturing out on different forums trying to find a little kick of inspiration.

First, I visited DSA (Digital Scrap Addicts). This site is sooo much fun and they are having a major Designer challenge. You can watch as 60 designers compete for a designer slot...each week, 20 being eliminated...and all their challenge kits are free to download for registered users. There are some awesome kits in the mix so head on over and take a peek!

Here are a few LOs from some of the kits produced so far!

Helter Skelter kit by Flergs:

I'm Happy kit by Claudi:

Life Captured kit by JulieMarie:

I have also jumped in with both feet and applied to a CT call for Kris Myers and Kari Q.

Kris Myers kit is called Just Playing. It is a wonderful selection of paint swirls, frames and some great word art.

Here are my two audition LOs:

KariQ's kit is called Laughter. This kit has the cutest birds, glitter and some really nice papers.

Here are my two audition LOs for KariQ:

That's all for now. I hope to start designing a bit more....bringing you some freebies each week.

Stay tuned!
