National Scrapbooking Day is coming!

May 3rd is National Scrapbooking Day. Don't you think they should make it an official holiday??? I do!!!

To celebrate I'm having a great promotion. My new Vacation Mini Kit has gone into the store and it's only $2.00! Not only that, but if you purchase it between May 1st - 4th, you receive the matching Vacation Paper Pack for FREE!!







The previews do the elements no justice! They are all created for 12x12 inch papers and have been downsized way too much for the preview. Here are some layouts to show you a few of the elements size against a 12x12 inch layout.







You can get it here or through my store under the Mini Kits category.

We all have vacations to scrap, don't we? (I'm behind on mine!!! LOL)
So take advantage of this 4 day promotion~!

I have no idea how other people 'sort' their scrapbook stuff. I find alot of the time I'm looking for a certain colour paper and I have to go through tons of folders to find the right one. My goal is to one day have all my papers sorted by colour. So to help I've started making paper packs by colour. (I know, you think I spelled colour wrong, don't you? I'm Canadian~! This IS how we spell it ... lol)

So todays freebie is starting with the colour blue. It's weird, I love the colour blue, but I don't want anything in my house blue. I will wear blue but I don't like blue 'house stuff'. I guess it could be because I had a blue bedroom for about 20 years~!!!

So here's today's freebie;

A Wonderful Morning ...

The air is warm, the sun is out, the birds are chirping. What more could you ask for? It's so nice to be able to open the door and let the air in. The cats are really enjoying it too! They get to watch the tree swallows do their morning routine of sitting on the railing of the deck.





My favourite season is approaching. Awwww ...

Today I put these frames in the store;



And the layout below shows the size of the frames against a 12x12 inch (3600x3600 pixel) layout.



They are only $1.00 and can be found here or through my store under the Frames category.

I just LOVE beach pictures~! Those pictures are from Mexico. One of the best resorts we have been too. It's called Grand Serinis.

Finally ... we are expecting beautiful weather for the next 4 days! I'm looking forward to getting some outside work done. And the weather is just in time because my friend who lives in Florida for six months of the year is going to be on her way back this weekend. She has acclimatized to the Florida weather and she would freeze her tush off if it was cold here ... lol.

Today I put this is my store;



With all this technology and everything changing so quickly, I think no matter what your age you can say "In the good old days ..." because they could be last year ... lol.

Go Jays Go~!

Wow, the weather actually cooperated. It was supposed to rain all day on Saturday and we only got a few drops. That worked out good because otherwise I would of had 20 college age students in my house all afternoon and into the evening ... lol. It was also my cat Nemo's 5th birthday on Saturday.



And next month our other cat turns 15!

Besides birds and cats - one of the other things I love is baseball. And this year is so exciting because the Toronto Blue Jays have started off with an incredible season.



Now I know it is very early in the season but these guys are hot!
GO JAYS GO!!!

Ok, now before the freebie, this is what I put in the store today ...

A Beautiful day~!

Yesterday it was just beautiful out. And I'm hoping today is too because we are having over 20 students over for a bbq. My husband teaches at a college and we are having his graduating students over. It's supposed to rain but I'm really hoping the weather guys are wrong ... lol.
(It wouldn't be the first time!)

So since I have a few things I need to get done, I'll go right to what I put in the store today.





And the layout below shows the size against a 12x12 inch (3600x3600 pixel) paper. That's my daughter in the layout when she was 3 days old ... she's 26 now ... ~!!!

Thirsty?

Wow, there's a bunch of boozers out there! LOL Happy Hour #1 has been VERY popular. I guess I'm not the only one who likes a nice cold beverage once in awhile. :-)

There is also alot of cat lovers out there because my Feline Word Art has also been very popular. Nice to see.

Today I added a few things to my store and I'm really excited about them. The previews really don't do them justice but I've tried them on alot of different papers and they really look good.





And this layout below shows the size against a 12x12 inch (3600x3600 pixel) paper.



Each set of 12 frames is only $2.00 and you can get them here or through my store under the Frames Category. And the bonus Girl Power frame is still available until the 20th with a $5.00 purchase.

What did we do before digital cameras??

Wow, Digitals are so great. I wish they would of been around when my daughter was younger. I take pictures of everything now. This mornings sunrise was irresistable.



Well, I'm happy to say that the weather looks like it's going to be really nice all week. I want to get out and rake the lawn and stuff like that. I was trying to describe to my daughter the way a tree swallow sounds but my 'mimicking' was not the best. They have such a unique 'talk'. So I took a short video to show her. Don't worry, it's only one minute long ... lol.

I'm soooo looking forward to this summer. It's been a long winter~!

Todays freebie is the first part of a three part series. It's called Happy Hour. This first part I didn't create - other then extracting them, fussing with them and making them into 300 ppi png files. But they were all royalty-free images and you never know when you might need a 'nice beverage' to put into your layouts ... lol.

Mornings are for the birds ...

What better way to wake up then to your feathered friends sitting on your railing. That's exactly what we've woke up to the past few mornings. So we take our coffee outside and sit with them. They are soooo tame~!! I told my husband to stick out his hand to show how close we can get to them.



Aren't they the sweetest things?



Our cats just love watching them too. But they have to do it through the screen door ... lol. So today I put something in my store for cat lovers like me.



And here it shows you the size against a 12x12" paper (3600x3600 pixel)



Only $1.00 and you can get it here
or through my store under the Word Art Category.

Birds and Cats ... two of my favourite things. :-)

Oh, and before I forget, I've got this promotion going on in my store.



and here's a closer view of the frame:



So take advantage, it's only for one week~!

I'll see you tomorrow for your next freebie.

Back to Birding ...

Ok, if you have been following my blog then you know that I really am a bird nut. Last spring we had tree swallows nest in our birdhouse right by our patio. They are such neat birds with such unique colours and sounds. It was also awesome to see the babies being taken care of and fed. I know I talked about this last year on my blog and don't be surprised to see lots more pics this year. I'm so excited because they are back. Of course we are not sure if it is the same birds or the babies or a totally different couple but I don't care ... lol.



This was taken this morning, the male has been keeping guard on the house.

I have taken tons of pictures of birds and I have almost made it goal of mine to try and see how many different birds I can get pictures of. I had made these pages and I've made them into quickpages and put them in my store today.



And these are some of the birds from my backyard.





The set is only $1.00 and you can get them here or through my store and under the Quickpages category.

And if you happen to like birds to then you might like this word art freebie for today.

Ahhh ... sun!

Weird weather ... snow and now it's beautiful out and the snow is melting fast. I guess that's actually normally for this time of year. This beautiful weather makes me want to play in the garden but I guess I'll have to wait until the snow is gone ...lol. But, I did buy this cute garden hanger today.



It was just too cute to resist. And I bought it at a dollar store!. Well, the hanger was actually $2.00 and so was the hanging bird feeder. But still, I thought it was a good deal.

And what a coincidence because today I put 'Garden Hangers' in my dollar store ... lol. Not the same thing but I thought they might be useful for when you start taking all those pics of your gardens.



And the set is only $1.00 and you can get it here or through my store under the Word Art Category.

And a little freebie for you to start with ...

Back to winter ...

Wow, we ended up with quite a bit of snow and it's still coming down a little bit. The cats are restless because the past few weeks they have been going out in their cage with the weather being half decent and now they're stuck inside again. The birds have been taking advantage of all the bird feeders we have out, they weren't expecting this weather either!. I have this suet holder hanging right outside one of my windows and the cats have had quite the show the past few days.
