I love all the big family holidays, like Thanksgiving and Christmas. Next month I am hosting the Color Challenge at Deco-Pages.com, special thanks to Lorene Hill who also contributed to the kit that will be used....

Each month different Deco-Pages.com Designers host the challenge (Oct. is Jen Hanson!) with a specific set of colors they choose. They make a starter kit that goes in the store for $1.99 - a super deal and inexpensive way to support the site and designer a bit.

Here is a layout I made with Jen's kit for Oct - Flower Power... So cute!

But you can use any kit you like so long as the colors match the challenge for the month. :) Then you can earn rewards for participation. Reward 1 for making 1 layout, Reward 2 for making 3 layouts, and Reward 3 for making 5 layouts.

Here is what is in store for Nov. 2008 -- Click images to view larger previews. :)

I had good intentions about keeping up with my blog... honest. :D

But its been a little crazy the last few months. My MIL and FIL were moving from a house they had lived in for 30 years, and hubby and I were helping them get packed and settled in. In a way it was almost fun, but definitely a lot of work. There new house is just gorgeous though and they are across from a great fishing / duck pond, the kids really enjoy going over for a visit.

In between all that we have been plugging away with our daily school routine, fighting off infections like strep and taking care of other responsibilities.

Now I've been called for Jury Duty on Monday, which will be a new experience. I am actually looking forward to learning a little about how the process works. There was a time when I was young I actually dreamed of being a lawyer. :D My mom always said I could argue with a fence post...

Today has been a nice lazy day around home, so I had a little time to just play a bit.... Shhh don't tell anyone because I have emails I really need to catch up on too, but that's planned for after dinner tonight and all day tomorrow.

I made this fun little doodle frame, which is CU ok. The white border shown is for the preview only. I hope you enjoy it, and leave a little love while downloading.


I really will be planning to add more posts and things soon, some more freebies, a little contest in honor of Thanksgiving and my birthday next month... so sign up for my news feed or check back in soon. :D

Well I know Valentine's Day has passed, so this is a belated freebie in honor of the holiday of LOVE and ROMANCE. :) My hubby and I passed 9.5 years of marriage on Feb. 5th, with the big 10 coming in Aug. And it still amazes me that time passes by so quickly. I am very blessed to have someone who loves and supports me so much, esp. with the digital scrap addiction!! LOL

I hope you find these glitter chipboard hearts useful for creating a page about the people and things you love most.

Please leave a little comment while downloading! :) We designers need a little love too.

These are for personal use only, please read the terms of use included with the download.

We are having a super contest at Deco-Pages.com this month, you get a free month of Club Deco just for participating!! And the top winners get printed pages from PrintMyKeepsakes.com and more!! Come check it out!

Well it's been a while, this month has been pretty hectic family wise. We had a scare that my SIL could have inflammatory breast cancer, but was a negative. Then one of our extended family members died of a sudden heart attack, he was only in his late 30's, so it was very shocking and sad. And on top of that me, hubby and kids have had the flu and feeling pretty crummy. Here's hoping the next weeks look up.

I made this little element template that I thought turned out pretty and wanted to share it. :) It is commercial use ok - but you must follow the terms of use included. Hope you enjoy it. Please leave a comment if you download!! It's very much appreciated and takes so little time.
