It finally happened ...

Well, it finally happened. It snowed ~! It snowed and it stayed. I knew it wouldn't be long but I was hoping it would hold off for a few months It actually looks so pretty when it snows but I still prefer summer anytime.

Todays freebie is something a little different (for me anyways) ...

My Baby?

Wow, my daughter turns 26 this Saturday~! I'm in shock when I actually stop to think about it ... lol. It seems impossible - it seems I was just 26 yesterday~!! I am so glad that she and her boyfriend moved back to Canada from the States. They are going to come up here this weekend.

Todays freebie is acrylic frames. Depending on the paper you put them on changes the whole effect of the frame because they are see through. My white background on this blog doesn't change the appearance much but I've tried them on patterned paper and darker paper and they work well.

Have a great weekend~!

Buh Humbug

I'm glad the Note Cards Plus went over well. I have many that I had previously made as Paint Shop Pro Tubes and I can convert them over to .png files for another days freebie. :-)

I can't believe how fast Christmas is coming~!~ I'm not a huge Christmas fan now that my daughter is older. I just find it stressful and a huge rush and panic I think I'll enjoy it again if I ever have grandchildren. So don't be surprised if you don't see any Christmas elements coming from me any time soon. There's enough of those going around in digi world to keep everyone supplied anyways~! lol

Ok, here's the next part of the Wedding Wishes series;

I Won A Million Bucks~!

OK, not really, but I got your attention didn't I? lol And the reason I want your attention is because I would like everyone to read this. Looking back on my last two posts, I realized they both sounded quite negative/bitchy. Sometimes its really hard to express yourself with words online and it seems that this was one of those times I'm not one to put little giggle's and hahaha's in my writing... just the occasional LOL,s~! Neither post was meant to sound like I was upset or mad. I just want people to know where I'm coming from. I am really enjoying creating these freebies and I am finding that it has become my little 'outlet'. So thank you for all the positive feedback and comments.

Sooooooooooooo ... onto something new ...
This next freebie is actually something I made years ago but they were in the form of a Paint Shop Pro tube. I've converted them to .png files at 300 dpi. They weren't originally made for scrapbooking, but they might be good for some journaling.

Hmmm ...

I would like to clarify some things. When I create something I put it into a folder and name the folder accordingly. If I create something similar again (or that falls into the same category) I put a '2' at the end of the next file/folder. The reason I do this is so all my folders will be organized and at a glance I can see similar things grouped together. Example: Vacation Word Labels 1, Vacation Word Labels 2 - these folder would be side by side because of them alpahabetically being organized. This does NOT mean that if you missed number 1 there is no point in downloading number 2. Actually quite the opposite - if you would never use number 1 why would you download it?. They are not 'sets' or 'kits'. They are only numbered for my/your convenience of organization and to keep similar things grouped together. I can see if it was an alphabet or something where you 'needed' all the parts.

The reason I'm bringing this up is because 'karategirl' mentioned that because she missed part 1 of the wedding series she didn't see any sense in downloading any other parts and she thinks other people feel the same. I personally think that makes no sense. Why would you download a part that you would NEVER use? These are all seperate pieces - never meant to be a full kit - they just happen to fall under the same category which is why I call them series. I many times have skipped a part of someones kit because I knew I would never use it. What is the chance that you are going to use EVERY SINGLE element in a kit to create a page? Chances are you might use one or two pieces. This isn't about seeing how much you can accumulate.

I'd love to hear YOUR opinion on this.

Whew ... Ok, so that being said here is the next freebie - which is called Wedding Wishes 3. Two of the 3 elements don't have to be used for a wedding - and if you don't have Part 1 or 2 - guess what? You can still download Part 3...LOL.

Rethinking Some Things ...

Hmmm... I'm sooo confused ...LOL. My 'Wedding Wishes' series doesn't seem to be as popular as I thought it would be. I could understand if all of the elements were strickly for just a wedding but many of them can be used for other layouts. I've got weeks worth of these freebies already made and I'm not sure what to do. On top of all that my quickpages were a flop as well. I can actually understand the quickpages because not alot of people use them - myself included. The comments in my Cbox are few and far between and I'm getting discouraged. I've always made it a point to make a comment when I download from someones site. Sometimes I wander why I spend so much time on this. Ok, I'm done wining ...LOL.

I want to show this picture of my cats. Nemo (the one in the air) was diving off the stairs to attack Mischief (play attacking of course~!) and I happened to catch him in mid air.

So here is todays freebie:

U.S.A. Election time!!!

Well, this was the first halloween that I remember in a long time where it wasn't raining for the little goblins. It was actually quite mild. We sat outside to give out the candy and had scary music going and everything. Unfortunately we didn't get alot of kids, I think because we are on a dead end street. The next few days are supposed to be gorgeous out! Yay~!!!

I'm really looking forward to watching the American election tomorrow. I've been following it for quite a while as I think alot of Canadians do. If I was an American I think I still would be in the 'undecided' group. I seem to swing back and forth between McCain and Obama. I actually think the best ticket would be John McCain as President and Barack Obama as Vice President ... lol. (Or maybe the most interesting one would be Obama and Palin~!!!) It's the Vice Presidential candidates that are throwing me off. Sarah Palin gets alot of slack but I do think she is a very smart woman - and she definately has balls!. I thinks she's learning alot but I'm not confident she's ready for that position. Then there is something about Biden that really bugs me, I can't really pin point what it is - but again I think he is a very smart man. Either way it will definately be a historical day for the United States and there will be some interesting years ahead!

Ok, now here is todays freebie:
