Another Brag Book completed

WOW, I finished two brag books this week! It really makes me feel like I am accomplishing something good. One is already posted on Raspberry Road Designs as a freebie. I used Susan's Nantucket Briar kit for it. Here's a preview.

If you click on the preview, it will take you to Susan's blog so you can download the freebie.

The other one I finished will be released soon on Susan's blog. For it I used her newest kit, released today, County Fair. This kit is loaded with the neatest papers and graphics suitable for all kinds of layouts. There are tractors, farm animals, ribbons, buttons, and other elements. There is even a paper in the kit that has an old pickup truck and images of a ferris wheel. Remember those? I used to love to ride the ferris wheel at the fair!

Where has this week gone? and a freebie

My goodness, time is flying by. Before you know it, it will be Halloween, then Thanksgiving will sneak in and . . . I don't even want to think how fast the C word will get here. Work is taking up a lot of my time, but I'm still spending a lot of my home time designing.

In fact, I am experimenting with some new things. One of the new things is printable photo greeting cards. I would like you to help me decide whether to pursue this venue, so I am offering one as a freebie today.

Click on the preview and you can download it. Only the front is shown. The inside of the card is blank so you can write a message. The file is png, at 300 dpi. Please, if you download it, let me know what you think of the finished product.

Thanks a bunch!

Back to work for me, and a gift for you

I started my new job today. Not sure how I'm going to like it It's a lot slower paced than what I'm used to working. We'll see.

Anyway, I have a surprise for you. I have been playing again. Head over to the Raspberry Road CT blog and see what I have cooked up for you using Susan's new kit, Victorian Bliss

Time for bed, that's another reason I'm not sure about this new job......I am SO NOT a morning person.

See ya!

Freebie I promised

As promised, here is the second quick page using my Caribbean Sunset kit.

You can download it here: or by clicking on the title to the post.

What a wonderful week I had!

You know when you go on vacation that the time will fly by too quickly. This past week was a whirlwind of activity . . . traveling, seeing the sites, visiting with family, casinos, and lots of other stuff. I am soooooo glad to be home, but now comes the unpacking, catching up on laundry and getting back into the swing of things at home.

One really neat place we stopped on the way to my sister's house was a little town in Illinois, called Metropolis, just across the Kentucky/Illinois border on Interstate 24. We had pulled off the interstate at the rest area to take pictures of the kids in front of the "Welcome to Illinois" sign for their scrapbooks. When we started to leave the parking lot, we saw a sign that said "Giant Superman Statue" with an arrow pointing to the left. We decided to check it out. This is what we found.

Pretty neat, huh? But that's not all this little town has to offer. There were paintings on the side of the buildings.

This is a painting honoring the men and women who have served and are serving in the armed forces. A plaque beside it commemorates the story of one veteran of World War II, John Steele, from Metropolis.

Metropolis also offers a Superman museum, and other pictures of Clark Kent, and Lois Lane painted on the side of the buildings. We didn't have a whole lot of time to spend, but it is definitely a must see if you are in the area. I plan to spend some time there the next time I travel through the area.
I'll be back later on today to post a freebie for you, another quick page from Caribbean Sunset.
