Football and Freebies!

My bears lost tonight. Not that it's a shock or anything. We've barely won in like 15 years. What happened...long story. Who wants to know it anyway? The good news? Robert Griffin. Seriously. He's a freshman QB. He's fast. He looks like he'll turn out to be decent! For those of you who haven't known me very long...I have a confession. "Hi, my name is heather...and I'm a football-holic." I have been giddy all day long. College football started today! My husband says my mood changes when football starts. In fact, I think he went into mourning last Feb after the Super Bowl because I was very sad. Now, don't get me wrong. I love football....NFL, college, I don't care. I'll watch just nearly any game that is on tv. But, let me make this clear. I love love love the Dallas Cowboys. They are the team I watched while my daddy taught me the basics when I was 5, 6, 7 years old. They were the team I cheered for in college when Troy, Michael, and Emmit won three Super Bowls. Love the 'boys! Love em
Now, that we got that out of the way. (And, I am sure this will not be my only blog post on football. I apologize now if that completely bored you!)
And, I also feel as though I need to share a page I've done. I found some pics of Hunter from several years ago (when we lived in NYC, before Mady). We'd gone to DC to see Heath's sister, Holly. I love these pictures of him! This one is done with several kits by Sherri Tierney! One of them was a her new one, Preppy Boy, and other one was Declan. Both are at Digital (I also used Brittish Traditions' date stamped)

I have a CU freebie at Ahhh Scrap! today. Here is a preview. I call it Lots of Dots. Click preview to get freebie!

In addition, I have a great QP here. This is done using the Daily Download that I contributed to for ScrapMatters. Grab it here! Also. go to the forum to get the next DD!

A Challenge, A Preview, and A LO or maybe two!

What a day! I have SO much to write about tonight...i hope I leave nothing out!
Hunter has gone back to school, for over a week now, and oh house is QUiET! I don't realize how load Mady and Hunter are when they are together. Next week, Mady will head to Preschool! What will I do with time to myself? My goal: work, design, play...maybe a manicure or two ;) No really, I do start a new freelance job next week. So, that is good, but it will probably eat into my scrappin' time!
Oh, and I'm so excited! My older sis, Robyn, and my nephew are coming to see us this weekend. Plus, H will have his birthday party. I am a busy lady!
So, I just finished the Speed Scrap at SM and did a fun LO of Mady from our trip to Colorado!

And, let's see...oh, don't forget the Daily Download at SM! You can find it in this forum. Here is a preview of the fab kit the Apprentice Designers (Lina, Stacy, Wendy, me) made. Its really great. In fact, the LO above was done with it!
And last but not least....I am hosting Monica's Weekly Blog Challenge! WOO-HOO! I've decided this week we are going to have a template challenge. I made this LO with Monica's new kit "Business Casual". And here is the template for it! Click the template to download.

Here are the rules.
1. Download the template.
2. Make a page with it.
3. post it in a gallery.
4. email me the link (hhaynay AT gmail DOT com)! Please put Weekly Challenge in the subject.

If all goes well, next Wednesday I will try to get them all up as a slide show to show every one's hard work!!!

Not too hard right!?!?! Can't wait to see every one's LOs! Oh, and I'll picking a random winner to win something from Monica! Have a great night/day! See ya tomorrow for more LOs I've been working on...and a review from Madysen's Preschool Meet the Teacher visit!

Here a couple of LOs I've done with it so far! I am sure I'll be adding more LOs done with this collection very soon!

I got nothin....except

Hey all! I got nothin' new to say except, don't forget to grab the brag book pages asap! The links will disappear on Friday!

Tonight, I am so sad for the US Track and Field team. The men and women's relays dropped the baton. Then, even though we swept the men's 400, I was sad to see Jeremy Wariner take silver instead of gold. But, Merritt has a fab race, and I have to give him props! If you are track and field should check out this blog. Its called Prerace Jitters. Love it!

Okay, I'll be back tomorrow or Saturday. Not sure when....with my first kit for ScrapMatters revealed! SO, I guess I'll give you a peak...

Last page...i love beach volleyball!

Okay, so here is the last day of the BB. I'm so tired. I just finished the Speed Scrap at SM! Too fun. I am mad at my computer. I think Mady, Daisy, and I are going to Best Buy tomorrow to see if Daisy is sick...yes, can you tell my computer's name is Daisy!?!? Oh, and Holly, if you are reading, Daisy says hi to Rosie! Okay, what am I talking about? Just rambling tonight!
Here is my LO from the SS. I have no drop shadows b/c everytime I tried to put them on, photoshop just died. 4 times I tried and 4 times it shut down! It has never done that before! I used Britt-ish Designs Mermaid Lagoon and Ellie Lash's Crazy. Both are fab kits!

Next, look at my new avatar. Its a "flair" from facebook (which i decided to join last night). Its a picture of me from like 1st grade or so. How much does my son look like me...its scary I tell ya! (see photo below to compare!)

And, here is a preview of the final page of the BB....this link will be removed on Friday, so grab it now. Then, go to Ahhh Scraps and buy my kit so you can make more pages for the rest of a book! :)

2nd grade, seriously?

I am really old enough to have a second grader? I guess Hunter started the 2nd grade today! I cannot believe it! I'll be scrappin' a page soon to show you his first day of school picture!

I'm making this short, as I think I'll go to bed early tonight. I had to get up early to get H to school. At the very least, I'm going to claim the tv in our room so I can watch the Olympics in there!

SO, here is day 4 for my brag book give away. Password is still train. If you like it, send me some love;) Download here.

Day 3 Freebie! Plus, some LOs

I tried to clean my office out today. Oh my, I have too much stuff. I also house my scrap supplies here and was trying to make room for some new stuff I've purchased. Not pretty. I'm needing to purchase some very large jars so I can put all my ribbon in them! Oh well.
While doing this, Hunter decided that he wanted to digiscrap a page. So, I set him at the computer to choose a picture. We then sat down together and did a great LO! One that he did, but I controlled the mouse. He picked out everything and told me where to put it. We used Brittish Designs' Shiver Me Timbers set! How cute is it!
Here are two pages I did this week at ScrapMatters' Speed Scraps. I love both of them!



And for the third day of my brag book give away. You can get it here! Thanks, don't forget to leave some love if you grab it!

Brag Book Day 2! And more...

So, Is it possible to actually sleep for 16+ hours? Yes, I tell you? I've hurt my back again...not good. We went into Little Rock yesterday for a fun lunch at Cheeburger Cheeburger (love their shakes), shopping for new tennis shoes for Hunter, and then to Sam's for a few things. By the time we finished with Sam's, I could barely walk. It wasn't pretty. It doesn't happen often, but it happens. So, i took a pain pill at 3:30, was asleep by 4. My DH woke me up to watch Michael Phelps win another gold (how sweet was he!) and Tyson Gay qualify for 100m finals (I think--I was drugged). Anyway, and I slept until this morning at 9!!! WOW! I feel renewed (as I had not slept much this week), but my back is still hurting, but feels better. I think the chiropractor will be called on Monday! He's a good person!

Anyway, look at this! Its huge! ScrapMatters is having a new CT CALL! It is such a great place to be!

And, today is also day 2 of my brag book give away! Password is train. Make sure you pick up my new kit: Little Boy Express at Ahhh Scraps! Such a great kit!Maybe I'll just do another page with it today!

Friday, August 15, 2008

Trains anyone?

Okay, I'm obsessed. Seriously! I cannot keep from watching the Olympics, till like 1 am! Oh my! Even my daughter can identify Michael Phelps by sight and knows who he is and what he does--uuhhmmm...she is three. Oh well! What do you do? I love the women's gymnastics all around last night! Yeah for Nastia and Shawn! Congrats for gold and silver! It was awesome!

Okay, what else? Oh, I know! I am releasing a new kit today! Go to Ahhh Scraps to pick it up. Its called Little Boy Express and is so fab for boys of all ages. Here is a preview.

And here is a LO I have done with it.
And, as a celebration for the Olympics-because they make me in a good mood. I have decided to give away a brag book done with this kit! You can grab the first page here. The password is train!

Come back for the next 5 days for a download a day. Next Friday, I will remove the links and the book will go up for sale at Ahhh!

Go USA! wanna freebie?

Hey World! Are you all enjoying the Olympics as much as I am? I have even programed my directv to the Olympic channels so I can watch all day. So sad! I'm currently watching swimming. Had so much fun watching Michael Phelps swim last night. And, wanted to give a shout out to the men's gymnastic team! Yeah for the Bronze! Totally was yelling and cheering at my desk last night!
So, I've done some scrappin over the past couple of weeks. Here are some of my LOs!

I did this with template by Brittish Designs and Sherri Tierney's new kit: Yum Yum Bubble Gum! How cute is it. You can pick it up at Digital Freebies... Here is the kit preview:

I did this for the Tuesday Template Challenge at ScrapMatters! I used the Friday Flea Market Collab Kit! How great is it!?!!?
And, two more using the kit:

And the last one....this is using Digi Keepsakes by Monica. It's her Go Fly a Kite! Click the title to go get it at SM!
Here is the preview of that kit!
And you want a freebie since you've read through all of that!?!??! I've created an acrylic alpha...grab it here! Here are a couple of the letters.

I'm back!

I am finally home!!! YEAH! Not that I don't love traveling, but there is nothing better than being home! I have been to New Mexico, Colorado, and Utah on my trip. Last week was CKU in Provo. I went with my mother-in-law and sister-in-law. Seriously, we had the best time. I might have actually burned enough calories laughing to counter-act the number of calories I ate in glazed croissants from the Provo Bakery (if you are from the area, you totally need to go there! Yummy!)
Anyway, I am so glad to be back! I haven't been able to watch much of the Olympics so far, but was glued to the television last night and watched the US Men's 4x100 team win the relay in swimming. it was AWESOME! I think I hit my hubby so hard it woke him up. oops. But, what a race...can I hear an amen!?!?
I would also like to sister-in-law, Holly, is my personal hero today because she was a gymnast and can tell me all about why the kids score what in gymnastics. I only know to look for landings, but its so much more detailed than that! I need to have her on speaker phone all the time to explain! HA! I am currently watching handball...who knew it was an Olympic sport! My direct tv actually has a guide to show me what is on which channel at all times of the day! I am going to be an Olympic junkie! Maybe I can design while I am watching!
Now, on to scrappin'! I paper scrapped all last week. Awesome! But, missed digi so much. It just doesn't make the same mess! I still have black paint under my nails from Saturday! Anyway, I did participate in the Speed Scrap at the all-new ScrapMatters on Saturday night. We are having some wonderful things going on all week! Make sure you check it out! Here is the page I did at the scrap....All done with Weeds and Wildflowers except the staple (Briit-ish Designs).
