Friday again?

Hello my bloggers! Can't believe it's Friday again, his week has flown by! I was going to post on Wednesday but I completely collapsed. My poor body decided not to cooperate anymore. I've rested a couple of days and I'm better again. It had to come, last few months I've been sleeping maximum 4 hours a day...anyway, I'm much better now, slept most of the past two days! I wanted to share with you that my layout Star (scroll down) was chosen as a featured LO of the week at Scrapartist (last week). I've got a few new ones, one is my DD being potty trained, well, not really trained because she never went. She skipped potty completely and started going straight to the normal loo. I love this photo of her and the Shakespeare was just perfect for it:

And this is my first LO for Rachel Young with her Shine papers and ShangriLa elements:

And another one that I've done for our team challenge at Weeds&Wildflowers. It was about scrapping a page about our favorite place. Bet you love mine:-):


Credits here.

And in the meantime I managed to finish a new kit American Dreamer, especially for the celebration of 4th of July! I'm gonna be leaving to Prague on the 3rd and I won't have connection at home. Last time I tried quite a few internet cafes with wi-fi but it wasn't working properly, I couldn't connect to a lot of pages. Still don't know the reason why. So I just wanted to have everything ready before. I've already uploaded it in the store! Here's the preview:



Not all the elements are shown here. The detailed description of what you get is in the store:-) Next weekend there's going to be another GRAB BAG SALE at Divine Digitals and I'm gonna have mine ready for you for sure! I'll finish it before I leave so I don't get all stressed, lol! It'll be enough of stressing on the way to Prague because I'm flying alone with the two little ones and it's not a direct flight:-( At least we're going via Munich which is quite a small airport so there's no danger we'd have to run from terminal to terminal. And we'll have 3 hours waiting there, uffff. Think of me, hopefully I'll survive in a decent state of sanity!

On to your today's freebie, ready? GO! Here's the preview, have been stamping:-) I love Michelle Coleman's stamped alpha and I found myself using it again and again because it's so versatile. So just to have a little different alpha at least sometimes I've done this (not Michelle, I know, hers is just genius!)...


It contains capitals and a few symbols and you can grab it here. SORRY THE LINK HAS EXPIRED. Tips for recoloring: color overlay doesn't work all that nice on this one. Try different blend modes, i.e. hard light, linear light...got really nice results with them! Have fun and please leave me a comment if you DL, you know how much I love them! Have a great Friday!

Lucie, thank you for your wonderful shares and taking the time to make
them for us!

I wanted to tell you about a new freebie forum I have started.

Please come and check it out at http://scrapperdesign.com/forum.

I just put it up 2 nights ago and I have put as many freebies on their from the designers that I can, but I cannot continue to do this, the designers need to post their own freebies. You have more control over your freebies that way and what a way to drive scrappers to your blog/website!

Hope to see you there! Hugs,Ruthie.

Well you are probably on your way to Prague or already there. Hope your trip goes smoothly. You are much braver than I am to travel with two kiddos :)

Justin (my son) has gotten a lot more clients in his horse shoeing business. He does that after working his regular job. Keeps him busy! Fleeta (his horse) is such a sweet baby, well not a baby anymore but she seems like one. He has been getting on her and riding around the field. She seems to be learning quickly, so that is good.

Thanks for stopping by to say hi, I will chat at you when you get home :)

Hello ! Thank you for all your wonderful creations.

I've used your alpha, just for a word (metis = half-caste), lol, but you can see it here on my blog :
