Finally! (freebie!)

Clearwire came out last night to see why I'm having such a hard time staying connecting to the internet suddenly. It turns out they had moved the tower I receive my signal from. The tech told me that I should be able to get better signal than ever before if I just move my modem (which would mean moving the computer with it, since the cord on the modem is only about 8 feet long) and put it in either the window above my DD's bed, or the window above my kitchen sink. For some reason, he just didn't understand why those weren't really options for me. If I have the computer in my room, the living room, or the dining room, I will continue to get very little signal most of the time. So now I have to figure out what to do about internet service.

But the good (?!?!) news is that I should get fantastic signal where my computer is now from about 5am to 9am daily. So I was finally able to get the element add on for Showers 'n Flowers uploaded, and here it is.

There's a bracket mat, a tree, a fence, a flower pot, more grass, a couple buttons, a couple bows, a couple butterflies, a couple bugs, 14 things in all.


Well, we're off to deliver one family member to dialysis and another to hyperbaric, so have a blessed day!

The internet hates me.

Well, here we go again. I've spent hours trying to upload to 4shared, and it's not working. So I gave up and tried to load it at Digital Candy, but my internet keeps losing signal. I will keep trying.

But on a positive note, we (the children's group from our church and a handful of parents) went to see Power Unlimited this evening. If they're going to be in your area, you HAVE to go. They're body builders and ministers who present a positive, non-denominational message about self-worth, staying drug free, and the gospel, mixed with loud music and cool stuff like breaking concrete blocks, bending metal pipes, ripping (full!) soda cans in half, breaking baseball bats, and rolling up metal frying pans. Needless to say, the kids loved it. You can find them here:

Wish me luck on getting these elements uploaded and have a blessed (what's left of it) evening!

No, I didn't forget. (Freebie!)

Yes, I promised a paper pack add on for Showers 'n Flowers, but 4Shared was not being my friend yesterday. I tried to upload it six times, but each time it would get partly done and then stop. So I've gotten it loaded at DC, but I will still try to upload it at 4Shared just so I can keep all of the kit together. Here is the preview, and the link is below.


I will still get the elements add-on posted later today. Thanks again to everyone who's voted, left comments and downloaded from the contest at Faith Sisters. If you don't know what I'm talking about, here is the link:

I had a couple people ask me about voting. It's really easy, you just have to register for the gallery, (which is pretty quick and painless, and they won't spam you or anything) be signed in, and then a link will pop up under each photo for you to vote. You only get to vote for one.

Have a blessed day and I'll be back in a little while!

More stuff for you! Freebies!

Thank you so much to everyone who's commented, voted, and downloaded the Showers ' Flowers kit from Faith Sisters. In case you missed what's goin on, I'm in a design competition, which you can read about in the previous post. There are (at last count) 22 minikits/kits available for download through the site, all coordinating colors, so you can end up with one incredible mega kit.

Here is my entry. You can download it (and hopefully vote for me...Please?)

And as promised, today I have for you the paper pack for the DSO Color Challenge.


As soon as I can get the file uploading to cooperate, I will be back on here to post a pack of additional papers to match Showers 'n Flowers. And be sure to come back tomorrow for the additional elements pack (another ribbon butterfly, more flowers, trees, and a picket fence like the one in my siggy) and Thursday I'll have a word art pack for you. I told you I loved these colors!

Until then, count your blessings!

Woo hoo (freeeeebie!!!)

OMGosh. Where do I even start?

I'm in the Faith Sisters Design Team contest!!! There are (so far) 18 entries, {edited: make that 23!} and you the scrappers get to help choose, by downloading our kits, leaving comments and voting. Yep, that means you get up to 18 kits for FREE!

Here is mine:
There are 8 papers and 20 elements in this part. Yes, that's right. This part. I kinda got carried away with the color scheme, and there are a few papers and elements that didn't make it into the kit, so be sure and check back within a couple days for the matching add on. You check out the contest (& download the kits) here: gallery was chosen for the Scraplift Challenge at PDW!!! You can check it out here:
The winning LO gets a $5 gift card to the store, and I also have a posting bonus for all the entrants. I don't have the preview of that done yet (does anyone know where I can take preview making lessons? LOL) but I will get it done in the next day or two.

And...I have announcements about a couple new CTs and my paperpack for DSO's monthly color challenge coming up this week, so be sure to come back soon!

Thanks for stopping by, and have a blessed day (or few, until I see you again. LOL)

When did I ever have time to work? (freebie!)

I've been busy. LOL Seriously, I was laid off from my job just as my stepad was coming home from the hospital and needing a fulltime caregiver. Pretty cool how those things work out, huh? So, while I'm sitting here with him, I've gotten a LOT of scrapping done.

Have you seen Spring It by Julie.Itis? I am soooo loving the peach and black combo.Here is my LO with it.

This is Blue Daisy by Lisa Hanks,
which I originally planned to do another LO with my DD. wasn't turning out the way I planned, so I started over and ended up with DS in it instead.
I also picked up a one kit call with the fabulously talented Brittney Ferguson for her latest, Sonny. You can check it out here.

Here is my LO with it.
And, are you sitting down? I made a color challenge mini kit for you, and it A) is not the last minute, and B) actually has more elements than papers. ROTFL.

See how far ahead of schedule I am? It's not even the Ides of March yet. Actually, I was trying to think of a name related to March that wasn't StP's day, and Latin geek that I am, this was the only thing that came to mind. Drop shadows are on the preview only, and I just realized that I forgot to thank Donna Rafferty for her fabulous braided ties, so I've got to go fix my TOU for that. You can get it here:
download DST march

Until next time, have a fabulous day and be thankful for your blessings!
