About Me

I am a 51 year old woman who in the past few years have been through one thing after another. Even though I see God's hand in it all it has and continues to be a difficult road. I feel I cannot be the only person thinking and feeling the way that I do. Maybe not all of you and its not my intention to offend yet to help. So if you disagree then lets agree to disagree. This is the truth as it applies to my life and we could differ. This is my journey and I pray that in some way it may be helpful for you or someone you know. God Bless you all on your journey whatever it may be.

Well, it has been a little while hasnt it. I am sorry about that. I have been so busy. Busy designing new kits for you and busy taking care of the family and doing housework. Oh my I said it. I said the bad word, housework. Well moving on! lol I have some wonderful things to share with you. Some layouts and a freebie!! Yes, I said the good word!! FREEBIE!!! It coordinates with our (The Scrapping Garden's) first Members Choice kit!! It was a few extra pieces I made in case we decided to do a bonus. Well, we decided not to do a bonus and so here you go a small gift for you! The downside. You have to wait until the end of this post. Make sure you read it all because if you dont the link will not work (NOT!!!) I would appreciate if you do read and look at everything though. I have a lot to say ya know and hope that someone is reading! lol

I heard from my DS (The one in Iraq). He is at his new home in An Niminiyah. He has his assignment. He will be doing medical work after all. He will be doing sick call for approximately 120 - 200 people. He may have a lot of time with no patients but the paperwork is killer. He will most likely be doing a lot of reading and a lot of college work. It is good to know that he is safe and sound. If you get my newsletter you will get more detailed info on him so if you are interested or just nosey lol then make sure to leave a comment with your email addy and I will make sure that you get on my list. My newsletter seems to be going out once a month right now but may get to be more than that. Not more than twice a month though.

On the first my Vintage January Kit will be put into my store for $3.00.

I also am adding an add-on duo to my In My Heart Mini Kit. If you remember right the Mini Kit was offered free in January and will be put into the store for $2.00 on Feburary 1st. Also, I have a Paperpack add-on and an Element Add-on that coordinates perfectly all together and will give you enough to work with to make a brag book, a mini album or even a full album. The elements in this kit is great for Weddings, Valentine's Day, Mother's Day, or Tributes. Any kind of situation you can think of.

I made a couple of layouts with this kit. I made one of the weeks of my 365 day project and a QP for my Sing a Song Challenge. February is the first month for me to do this challenge. I am taking it over from one of the Creative Team Members at The Scrapping Garden. The choosen song for February is "Have I Told You Lately That I Love You." Written by Van Morrison and sung by Rod Stewart. I think this kit goes perfectly with that and will make such a beautiful layout.

Here is my layout from 365 day project.

Right now I am working on a kit called Godiva which will be the featured kit for my New Challenge at the end of the month. It is called Sketch by Design. It will be the last Wednesday of the month and run til the last Tuesday of the following month. I am just finishing it up now and should have it completed before Friday of next week.
Okay, enough is enough right? Where is your freebie? Well here it is:
There you have it. A Friday Freebie, some personal info and some layouts as well as new kits. Make sure to check out my store at: http://www.scrappinggarden.com/shop/manufacturers.php?manufacturerid=21
