Berry Berry Sweet

Hello all,

It is snowing like crazy right now in Colorado. We are expecting 6 to 12 inches. It was 75 degrees here on Sunday. And now snow.. "if you don't like the weather give 5 min and it will change" this so true for Colorado.
I have a couple of things for you today first up of course is my kit called Berry Berry Sweet made from my Little Lady's dress. There is an alpha (upper case) and numbers. There are 17 elements and 4 papers in this tagger size 800x800 300dpi kit. Here is preview. Not all elements shown.

Here is the alpha link.

Here is my layout

Thanks for lQQking

Tough Love vs. Spanking - Good Argument

Lol good evening all. Hope all is well on this fine eve before spring begins. I have few layouts and free alphas coming up, but first wanted your take on this topic,
Most people think
it's improper to spank children, so I have tried other methods to control my kids when they have one of those moments.'

One that I found effective is for me to just take the child for a car ride and talk.

Some say it's the vibration from the car, others say it's the time away from any distractions such as TV, Video Games, Computer, iPod, etc.

Either way, my kids usually calm down and stop misbehaving after our car ride together. Eye to eye contact helps a lot too.

I've included a photo below of one of my sessions with my son, in case you would like to use the technique.

This works with grandchildren,
nieces, and nephews as well.

Haven't tried it on my husband yet.( I know that this has probably been seen all over the internet but I thought I would share it anyways.)

Well ok now for the layout and freebie. This is my husband Ron the one next to him is Baxter the dog.(that would be the one towards the top of the pic..lol I have trouble too lol).This was made with a kit called Sheep Baby Sheep by Cynthia over at My Digital Things Her kits are really cute so if you haven't checked her blog out you should do so.

The funny thing is that 99.9% of the pictures I have of my husband is of him sleeping. I made 2 sets of alpha from this kit . Alpha 1 was made with a font called Sans and Alpha 2 was made by me with a fat brush tip( lol am not very good with a brush or pencil for that matter). I really like the way alpha 1 turned out and alpha 2 is playful. Remember if you download no comment is necessary but please visit Cynthia's Blog. Here is the preview of the alphas.
The bottles are from Osahoney Her blog site is really cool too. She has lots of freebies.
Well I think I bored you all enough. ALPHA 1 & ALPHA 2

Thanks for lQQking

My Lil Sherbert

Good Morning All

It's a glorious morning here in Eastern Colorado. The sun is shining ... the birds are singing and the trees are budding..the only thing missing is the ocean. I love the smell of salt air and the sound of the waves beating against the shore. Next to a child's laughter , the ocean waves are most soothing.
Well here is my Lil Lady. I made this layout using a kit by Barbara called Sherbet. you can find her blog "just passing through" here. Check her blog she has some awesome kits.

I just love this child's face here. Just amazing how one little "tookie" can bring such joy to the child and to the person giving the 'tookie". Have a great day.

and thanks for lQQking

Good Evening All
Hope all is well with everyone. I have a little joke for you today. My sista ( how a Joisey girl pronounces) sent this to me and I thought I would share it.

A study conducted by Tulane's Department of Psychiatry has revealed that the kind of face a woman finds attractive on a man can differ depending on where she is in her menstrual cycle.

For example: If she is ovulating, she is attracted to men with rugged and masculine features. However, if she is menstruating, or menopausal, she tends to be more attracted to a man with duct tape over his mouth and a spear lodged in his chest while he is on fire.

No further studies are expected.

Here is a couple of layouts I did of my grandson. I take him to the park alot and we have so much fun

Cute lil alpha freebie

Well hello all,

I have a really cute alpha freebie today. But first up is Arianna eating a cookie. This page was made using a kit called Fire. There was no tou in this kit. I really liked this kit. The colors were bright red & yellow. If you are the owner of this kit please let me know so that I may give you proper credit.

My pet peeve is no tou's in the kits or not even a blog or web address and some of those kits are beautiful. I download a couple of kits a day and then at the end of the week I unzip and look at the kits. Hard to remember where they came from.. So please put your tou's and add your blog or web address to the tous.

be sure to read tou to this kit

You can download this freebie here

Thanks for lQQking

Orange You Glad it's Spring

Well howdy folks!!!

Long time no see. I have been busy making kits and working on my 2010 calenders pages. I am also getting ready to upload my 365 days project pages up. I have completed week 9 and am working on week 10. You will find that I live a very boring life, but I liked this project because it is the "mundane"(for lack of a better word) things that are the corner stones of our memories.

Today's freebie is a kit I call Orange You Glad it's Spring It was inspired by my Lil Lady once again. These colors are more like the beginning of spring.. just before everything turns a lushish green. There is an alpha (upper case) and of course the usual "stuff". Enjoy!!
