Little Chatter & A Freebie

Very little chatter as I woke up with a horrible of those borderline migrane eyes are all swollen. It's really yuky. But I promsied a freebie today and so here is the first one. Pink painted metal swirls. They coordinate with DigiSkrapNMomma's Chocolate Covered Cherries kit. I will put another one up for the next 7 days. I hope you enjoy them.

Whoo Hoo! It's Friday! Time for the weekend :) We're supposed to have snow again Sunday after a 70 something day today, good grief! I wish Mother Nature would make up her mind, I am so ready for Spring!!!!

American Idol sure was a shocker last night! I can't believe that Michael is gone! I was surprised all the way around with the bottom three, they weren't at all what I had expected. This season the contestants are so talented that it is going to be interesting from here on out!

I scrapped a page of my dawg, Daisie. I ran the sweeper and she hates it when I run the sweeper so she stays right in front of me the whole time I run it and she tells me how much she dislikes it! Literally she talks to me about it with her wooo, wooo, wooo. I have never had a dog that is as verbal as she is. I don't know if it is common with standard poodles to be so vocal, I know that it isn't a characteristic of Golden Retrievers. (She is a Golden Doodle) All I know is that she talks back more than my kids did when they were growing up. She is so funny. I used It's A Dog's Life Kit by Designs by CAZ of Deco Pages for the page. I love the little paw prints and the various elements in the kit. They are perfect for my canine furbabies. You can find the kit here: It's A Dog's Life.

Tomorrow starts a week of daily freebies here. All the freebies will coordinate with DigiSkrapNMomma's Chocolate Covered Cherries Kit. Don't forget to stop by and grab them. Starting Sunday you should stop by DigiSkrapNMomma's blog and pick up the freebies she will be giving away as well.

So Sweet!

I am missing my DGS today and so I went through my pictures from this time last year and found a couple really cute ones of him. He was exploring my backyard and just barely walking so most of the time he was crawling around in the grass. I used the kit Chocolate Covered Cherries by DigiSkrapNMomma for this page and she used it for a QP give away on her blog. She currently has a new QP that she is giving away so if you like to use QP's for something easy when you have a photo you want to use but limited time...they are perfect. Her new QP is by Chantel and she used "Shaundi's Room" to create it. It is great because you can use more than one photo in it. You can check out her blog at Designs by DigiSkrapNMomma.

Psssstttt.... Don't forget to come back here daily starting Saturday 4/12 for a freebie that coordinates with DigiSkrapNMomma's Chocolate Covered Cherry Kit!

Designer's Choice Awards Contest

There is a brand new challenge/contest at Deco Pages! The designer will choose 3 pages out of the entries and then post a poll. Everyone can vote for their favorite of the chosen 3. The two runners up get a New kit by Deb Ammerman and the winner gets a choice of a new Design Team Brag Book or a free month of Club Deco. What a fun contest! I created a page using a poem by Robert Frost. I just loved it and it was so perfect for my photo of choice. I used Spring In Paris by PatinParis Designs. Bracket and letter art are from DIDM's contribution to Grateful4U collab kit. Fonts used were: Star Howard & Lucida Handwriting. If you like Pat's kit you can find it in her store here at Deco Pages.

There are a variety of challenges that are so much fun with fantastic participation prizes and more brand new ones coming in May. Stop over and check them out! Hope to see you there!
