New Freebie: “Summer Fun”

Ah, a glorious morning here in sunny Florida!  There is something about mornings.  The birds are singing a chorus to welcome in the new day.  Dew is slowly dissipating from the grass, as the sun slowly rises.  In a few hours, old ‘Sol’ will be glaring down upon us as it bakes the earth beneath our feet.  But, up til then, everything feels so fresh and new.  Yeah!  Right!  About the only thing new about the day is getting to sleep in.  LOL  On weekends, the children are early risers, so, there is no lazing around beneath the sheets.  But, come Monday, when everyone returns to school or work, it’s quiet and peaceful.  I love this time!  I stayed in bed a mite too long this morning.  ‘Cause, now it is after noon. Sorry about that.

Things are still in the works for my website.  I know.  I know.  Anyone else would have theirs up and running by now.  The dude who handles all my PC stuff is working on it.  Some years back he was certified in Microsoft.  Obviously, things have changed.  So, he is in school now.   He and a classmate are getting this web-business up and running.  They only really lack experience.  So, I am not in any hurry just so it gives my friend time to go through and figure things out, set them up, whatever.  I figure my site is as good a place as any for him to play around with.  I know he will do me right.  He is good about that.  So, all I can tell you is that later this week he is coming over to get me tuned in and all that jazz.  Perhaps, by weeks end, the new site will be up.

As it’s late, I will go ahead and give you the new freebie and save my gab for another day. This month’s theme is “Summer Fun”.  I think the soft, pastel colors will appeal to many.  Today, Miss Edna and I give you the QP’s.  Then, for the next two Mondays, we will give you the kit parts for you to create your own layouts.  You end up with a total of twelve(12) parts between Miss Edna’s parts and mine.  So, without further adieu, here are Parts 1 and 2, together.  Click on the preview to go to Minus to download.  Then, if you haven’t been to Miss Edna’s Place yet, click on her preview to go to her blog for her two parts.

Parts 1 and 2

And, that will do it!  I hope you enjoy!

Until next time,

New Freebie Collab: ‘Monkey See, Monkey Do’

Good Monday, everyone!  Gosh!  It seems like forever between posts!  The truth is, I am not happy with this set-up.  I actually find myself missing Blogger.  It was just so much easier.  I had no idea Word Press was so ‘involved’.  LOL  I knew I would have to learn some web stuff, but, it isn’t working out for me at this time.  Maybe if things were calmer I could tackle that, but, everything is always so up in the air.  I have several opportunities to get on with some folks on their sites, with a great deal of storage and with their semi-support.  (I can’t take up their time all the time!  LOL)  I have a domain, but, I don’t know how to sync everything together.  I want the ease of Blogger, the individuality of a private domain and support for whatever I do.  Anyone know of such a place?  LOL  C’est la vie!

I have to go out and about in a little while, so, I won’t take long, here.  Miss Edna and I have a new free collaboration kit for you this month, ‘Monkey See, Monkey Do’.  It was fun working on it for all the graphics and festivity that I associate with monkeys, like circuses!  I love the designs that come out of the circus.  The bright colors and the gold swirls are so typically circus-style.  If only the animals were given better treatment!

Today, we give you the first two parts, the 2 QP’s.  Click on the preview below to go to Minus to download.  Then, for the next two Mondays this month, come back and get the remaining 4 parts, 2 each Monday.  After downloading the QP’s, be sure to click on Miss Edna’s preview to go to her blog if you haven’t been there yet.

I hope you enjoy this fun kit!  I shall see you next Monday!



New Freebie “Monet’s Garden”

A good morning to you all!  I hope you had a wonderful weekend!  Did you stock up on ‘NSD’ goodies?  I spent only 20 bucks, but, got a bushel of goodies!  I found some grab bags that were uber-discounted, plus, some other things that were too good to be true!  LOL  I know there were a lot of party-ers around the web this weekend.  Everyone seemed to be in a really fun mood.

Before I get started, I went to the doctor last week.  He had told me he thought I had early stages of COPD.  (Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) refers to a group of lung diseases that block airflow as you exhale and make it increasingly difficult for you to breathe.)  When I went in last week, it was to measure my breathing.  I passed the test with flying colours!  It isn’t COPD that is making it hard for me to breathe at times.  Yay!! Since that was negative I still have to go back and have more tests to determine why I’m short of breath still, but, that one was clean!  Thank you to you all for your supportive well-wishes!  They worked!  LOL

At Digital Whisper we had ‘Spring Fling’!  Beginning Saturday morning, we held challenges and we are still giving away prizes to all who participate.  We are drawing winners in each group challenge, too!  The bad part about being a member of the Admin team means that we may not get to participate in some of the challenges.  But, I had a blast anyway!  Between all the fun and hooplah there and all the digi-sales elsewhere, it was a busy weekend!

I want to tell ya’ll about something that I have found that, I think, will interest you.  Always on the look-out for good bargains, I found ‘Sorority Scraps Guild’ from Graphics by PokaDot.  The banner looks like this:

Click on the banner to go to the page that has the information you need on it.  For twelve(12) dollars, you get six(6)-month’s of CU products.  On the first of every month, you get an e-mail with a link.  Go to it and download all the goodies!  It’s like Christmas morning when I get those e-mails!  LOL  There are all kinds of goodies in the monthly packs!  I’ve received brushes, templates, .png element files, ribbons, frames, flowers, and so on and so on!  Also, it doesn’t matter whether you have PS or PSP.  The goodies, like scripts and .pngs, come in both formats where necessary.  It’s all a good thing!  So far, I’ve probably received 20-30 dollars worth of CU stuffs and I’ve only been a member for two months!!

One of the goodies in the ‘Welcome’ pack was a template for a little ‘album’.  I decorated it all pretty and, with PokaDot’s permission, this is one of the QP’s for this month’s new freebie kit from Miss Edna and I, “Monet’s Garden”.  This week we give away the QP freebies, two of them.  Then, for the next two Mondays we will give away two parts  each per week, for a total of 12 parts by month’s end.  Each part is about 30mbs.  After the two QP’s, the remaining parts are all the elements and papers and such so you can make your own layouts!

So, without further delay, here are the Quick Pages for you.  Click on the preview to go to to download.  Then, beneath that, is Miss Edna’s preview.  Click on it to go to her blog if you haven’t been there already.

And, Miss Edna’s Place preview:

That’s a gonna do it for this post.  I have some links and things for you, but, will come back and post again – maybe later today.

Until then, or, at least, next Monday,

You got it!  SMILE!
