Vacation Days

We are having a great time in Colorado on vacation! I just love it here! Going from 103 to 75 degrees for the high is just absolutely awesome! We've already gone on a picnic, gone to a wine festival, gone to the park, etc. Hunter and Heath took a fly fishing float trip yesterday. Hunter caught 3 fish. He loved it. I just wanted to say hi to everyone. I am going to try to get another set of papers done so I can put them up in the next few days. I have to come to the library for internet access, so i am a bit slow...Here are some pictures of our picnic from Sunday.

Paper Pack Freebie

We've had a good day today. We went to the aquarium and botanical gardens. Kids loved it, especially when they fed the sharks! Took lots of pictures I can't wait to download and scrap! Then, after lunch and a stop at REI, we came back to the hotel and crashed. I love a nap!

I've worked on some papers. I've had a small request to do some stuff that might match Disney pictures. To me, that would be bold, bright colors. So, today, I felt like red. I am wearing a red t-shirt. I must feel in control today! Anyway, here is a preview....

New LO and vacation

Hey everyone...
We are leaving for a vacation today. I'm not sure how much internet usage I'll be getting to, but will try to post some. In addition, I hope to be working on a new kit and some freebies. So, keep your eyes open!

Here is a LO I did last night. I needed some therapy after a long day of cleaning, packing, and then my daughter was acting awful! I hope she is just still tired from our active weekend. I used stuff from various kits by Britt-ish Designs. The LO was for a Challenge on the DIS boards using the colors of Dori from Finding Nemo.

ScrapMatters is having a speed scrap today, actually 2-one at noon my time and one at 9 pm! I have no idea if I can make one or not. We are leaving here around 2 and not getting to Dallas until evening. So, it will be a tight squeeze, and how do I tell my hubby, can we wait to leave until I finish this page! HA! I hope to be able to make one, but I am not counting on it!

Back from the Lake

We are back! The Nay family had the absolute best time ever! Our friends, Josh and Marci, were the best hosts and showed us a great time! We swam, knee boarded, surfed, tubed, ate, and road in the boat. The kids were so happy and content the entire weekend, as were Heath and I! Here are some pictures from the weekend. Some of the ones I truly wanted to show I think we took with Marci's camera...I'll have to get copies asap!

The family...Mady was scared; we later found out that she thought sharks were living in the lake and were going to eat her...after we explained otherwise, she got much better!
Heath is surfing right behind the boat, I mean within arms reach...these guys are crazy. But, I might be more so b/c Sunday, I let him take Mady and Hunter on the board! YIKES! Heath's feet while surfing...he's crazy, seriously!

Hunter knee boarding. I don't have the ones of him learning to ski.
Hunter "jumping in" WITH Mady, yeah right....pulling her in is more like it!
Here is Mady and I tubing. She was willing once she learned there were no sharks! HA! See, I did do something besides relax in the boat, but not much!
We had a great time this weekend! Now, I need to get to scrappin' these pictures!

So, I am at the lake, but wanted to leave a little something for my friends here....Skip here!

Jump Frame Freebie

I am getting ready to go to the lake, but wanted to leave you all a little something! I've discovered an acrylic action! And, then I was inspired by a frame I made that is sitting on my is a picture of it! Yes...I am a paper/hybrid scrapper too! I've been doing that since Heath and I were married, so nearly 12 years!

Anyway, all of that to say I've made acrylic frames to match Digitreats' Run, Skip, and Jump Sets...I'll be giving them away for the next few days (while I am away). So, make sure you come back each day! If you like these Jump frames, download them here!!! And, leave me some love!

Fun at the Speed Scrap!

I had so much fun at the Speed Scrap tonight at ScrapMatters. I came up with a page that is one of my favorites ever! Just look...I used Calalily's All Girl Kit! Loved it. I did make the title and tiny frame, plus the brown ribbon hanging down. Anyway, really enjoyed this SS!

We are going to the lake for the weekend. Not sure how much I'll be on... I hope you all have a great weekend!

Kamp Rocks! Add-on Freebie

So, we had a mix up with the days for the Kamp Rocks! Freebie! And, it is being given away at Ahhh Scrap! Go here to get it!

New LOs

So I've done a couple of LOs this morning. I like them both, and I wanted to share before the rest of my day gets consumed with housework, etc. Both of these kits are so great for boys/men! That is why Hunter is in both! HA! Poor Mady is neglected for today.

This one is done with Sherri Tierney and Rachel Martin's Collab Kit: Jasper. You can find it at Elemental Scraps!

This one is Being Bold by DigiKeepsakes: Being Bold. You can find it at ScrapMatters!

Are ready for a Freebie?

Today has been a good day so far! We've gone swimming, done some never ending I've had some time to design a few things. One thing I did was another alpha. I did one to match Run this time....If you like this, don't forget to check out Digitreats' blog! She's always giving away tons of great stuff! I am going to try to get another one done tomorrow that match skip. I don't want to play favorites! Anyway, go here to download!?!?!
I need to finish getting the laundry done and getting the house finished. Friday, we are going to Hot Springs with our friends Josh and Marci, plus their two sweet boys, Seth and Mark. Can't wait. We always have the best time with them on the lake with the boat and jet skis. Hunter is probably the most excited! He wants to learn to knee or wake board this summer I think! All of that to say, not sure if I'll get freebies posted this weekend, but maybe I can put a couple together in advance. It will depend on how everything goes! Then on Tuesday, the family heads to Albuquerque! Can't wait; we are going to have a great time. Hope everyone has a great day! Leave me some love if you grabbed the freebie!

Good morning ladies and gentlemen ! Welcome to my very first challenge to host -- at Ahhh Scraps, well actually ever!

So, this week we are having a color challenge. I did a bit of research to learn more about the month of July. Did you know that July is National Ice Cream month? It is! This is good news for me because I love ice cream! So, in salute to ice cream we are doing a challenge based on the colors of banana splits!

We have three rules-in honor of the three scoops on a banana split:

1. You MUST use these colors in your LO! (You can add other colors if need be)

2. You need to recolor your photos to sepia in honor of chocolate-my favorite. (You can have any number of photos you want)

3. You must have a circle on your page in honor of the cherry on top!

Here is my LO I did for the challenge. Credits.

And, here is the freebie you will receive if you participate in the challenge...Its called Grapevine Dream. We would love to have you...You can find the thread and how to get the freebie here. Even if you have never been to AAAhhh Scraps, please come and join us for this FUN challenge!!!

BusyDay and look at this picture!

So today was so busy, though I am not sure what i did! HA! No really, the kids let me lie in bed till 9. That was awesome. I got up and started cleaning the house and tackling the piles of laundry. Gag, i really hate laundry! So, then we decided to go swimming for a couple of hours. That was great b/c it was super hot (high 90s) and the water felt great. I guess I missed a few spots on my back with the sunscreen b/c now I have a dang sunburn. I hate that.

After we came home, mady and mommy took a good nap while Hunter watched tv, and Heath did some research. Then we took the kids to see Wall-E. I can't decide what I thought about it. There was some things I loved about it: the animation, the ability to give a character SO much personality w/ no words! Plus, the originality of the script! I love Disney/Pixar! BUt, it was rather boring...if I heard Eve or Walle one more time i was going to pull my hair out! Oh well....the kids loved it and that is really what matters! I made yummy Rachel Ray pasta (thank you Tbap for that recipe heads up). Then was inspired to clean the kitchen so I could participate in the Speed Scrap at! SO much fun! Here is the LO I ended up with: (Oh and look at this picture of my kids. Can you tell how happy Mady was to see her Hunter? It might be one of my favorite of them!)

Credits:paper: haynay (funky girl kit); frame: britt-ish designs (just married); hanger: britt-ish designs (just married); heart: weeds and wildflowers; stitching: haynay; alpha: britt-ish designs (a kid again); swirls: britt-ish designs (just married)
Okay, and keep your eyes open. I am looking at another freebie to post. I am thinking of an alpha, but if you have requests, let me you want it original, or do you want it to match digitreats' kits again? Let me know in the comments section! You all are awesome! Thanks for coming to visit every day! Freebies are a way for me to give back a bit!

Okay, so I thought my funk would go away when I woke up Sunday morning. I was better, oh so much better. The family drove up to Branson to pick up my son from camp...he LOVED it! We've already signed him up for next year! He's SO tan and happY! I swear he grew another inch! He also forgot that his three year old sister is not a 7+ year old little boy. We went swimming today, and I'm pretty sure she drank about 5 gallons worth of pool water! He just would not leave her alone! But, we are all happy he's home! I missed him so much. And, I guess he missed me too, since he won't leave me alone for five seconds.

Anyway, back to my funk. As we drove home yesterday, i was Funk-di-fied again...what the heck is wrong with me? Jeez....Even my hubby's noticed. I am just in a mood. I'm trying so hard to be in a happy go lucky mood, but its just not coming. No clue as to what to do. Oh well, I'm sure I'll snap out of it...maybe my "krewe" of friends will have a ice cream break for me. Its one of my favorite things we do for each other....if one of us is in a funk, at a certain time of a specified day, each of us stop and eat ice cream. (I should mention now we are all over the nation: NJ, NY, NC, AR, and soon to be PA) Its a funk banishment ritual....I love my "krewe"...and if any of you are reading this...remind me of it tomorrow on the message board! HA! I need all the help I can get. And if anyone would like to join us, go ahead, have a scoop and think of my funk banishment! What a great excuse!

So, today, I created some LOs for some CTs. This is with Monica's For Keeps Sake. Grab it here....

This is from Sherri's Caitrin. Grab it here!

And, Good news...I have finished and am working on upload a new kit for Ahhh Scrap! I can't wait for you to see it. It might be my favorite yet! I'll have the preview and some LOs tomorrow....I'll give you a hint to whet your appetite! It's called..."A Scoop of Sherbert"! Okay, I'm off to bed! Have a great one everyone!

Skip Circles...Freebie

Have you ever just had a day that you should have never gotten out of bed? Jeez, it was a lousy day. I was just in a foul mood; no one did anything, but I was on edge all day. I guess we all have those days. Oh well, what do you do? Tomorrow is another day. A day that we are going to pick Hunter up from camp! YEAH! I can't wait to see my little man! I did a couple of LOs today. This one is with my new stuff I put in the store. I made a couple of paper packs of solid grungy papers. They are great. Here is a preview. I also completed a LO with the dark blue one so you could see it all. In addition, you can see my new blue chipboard alpha. All of these are also for sale here.
Credits: Haynay: paper, alpha; CKaye: stitching, journal paper; TinkTrinkets: key; Boutique Cute Doll: date circle: bld_md and chriscrap: flowers.

In addition, I have the last of the Circle papers for digitreats' Skip circles. I hope you enjoy. You can download them here!

It will be a couple of days till I get on again, as we will be in Missouri! Hope all of you have a blessed day!

I had a pretty boring 4th here. DH was working, DS at camp and it rained so Mady and I couldn't even go swimming! Okay, raining isn't the word. Let's just say the thunder scared her so bad she couldn't take her nap! Anyway, so I scrapped, alot! I did several LOs for my CT gigs, plus I totally went through all of my digi scrap stuff and deleted--alot! I went through and deleted everything that I got and didn't know wasn't my style at the time...anyone else do that? But, I needed some space on my external hard drive for all my design deleted I did! Here are the LOs I did.
This is with the Ahhh Scrap Collab Kit: Cool Dude...Get it here.
This one I did with Helly's Hard Rock Mama...get it here.

This one was done with Digi Keepsakes by Monica: Love My Jeans. How cute is that paper! I love it! Get this kit here.
