Mauve Alphabet

Hi friends. Thanks for stopping by. My DH knee is still recouperating slowly. I went to get fingerprinted today. I'm going to go back to substitute teaching and needed that done for employment. I've worked for this distict before my son was born and I called last week to see if they still had me on the list to sub. Hopefully, they'll call more than they did the last year I worked for them... they were on budget cuts then.

I can't wait to see other people. In my field you can't get away from the kids (lol). It has been a long time since I worked.

Anyway, here is the alpha I promised. I want to try another alpha that matches the stripped paper. I want to do another ribbon that says "I love you" in these colors, possibly some frames. Who knows what else.

For someone new at this the number of comments are really lacking. When I DL other freebies, comments usually run about 10% of DL. Here I don't even get that much. Please give encouragement to the new blogger and new designer.

Papers as promised

It's been a couple of days since my last post. My husband had knee surgery on Thursday and his recouperation isn't as easy as I thought it would be. Besides my two kids to look after, now I have him too. Getting ready for school, prepping my resume (in my head for now), etc., etc. It's a lot of work.

Anyway, I've made the papers as I promised. The preview doesn't do them justice. The texture and bevels are hard to see. Some of the variations are also hard to see. Practice makes perfect. I'm practicing a lot!!!

Next I'll work on an alpha.

Wedding Colors

Hi friends. Although my wedding was almost 10 years ago it seemed like yesterday. My wedding color was mauve. I've made hearts, ribbons and bows for todays freebie. It may seem a little boring and monochromatic but I'm still experimenting to make my freebies better. One shape trying different styles to see what they do work I may decide to add another color, possibly blue, but I'm not sure yet.

I don't like the way a couple of the hearts turned out but I put them in anyway.

I'm going to try to make some papers for next time.

Wedding Labels

I'm learning something new everytime I make a post. It takes a lot of reading and trying until it works right but I'm not one to give up right away.
This is a rough week. My DH is going for knee surgery on Thursday. DD finished camp last week. Getting ready for school in two weeks.

Even with my busy schedule I still found time to make a little something for you. Thanks for stopping by. Let me know if you like me to add some sayings like the ones I'll post up a little later when I get on my working computer. Using my DD slow computer now.

Second try is a charm

I tried again to get my frame download link to work. I did it this time. Sometimes its fun experimenting to make something work right. Sometimes it is frustrating. I worked on it for one hour last night and couldn't get it. We went to Wal-Mart and I had an AH-HA moment in the car and said I have to try it that way. And what do you know, it worked. Hope you like it.

Click on the frame in the previous post to download. And for coming back I'll be attaching the two papers also posted on the Scrapkit Challenge. The gals over there are great. Thanks again gals.

Thanks for coming by

Fellow scrappers. Thanks for trying my site. I'll try to post my frame I showed when I started posting at Scrapkit Challenge.

I'm working on it!

My DD finished summer camp today. Yesterday they did a talent show and today was their picnic. This summer is flying by... two more weeks before school starts.

I'm learning!!!!

Wow! I can get my blog up from my friends computer. I must be doing something right. (lol)

I sent my week 1 submission to Scrapkit Challenge. I can't wait to hear back from them!

Tomorrow, time permitting, I'll try to add a picture on. Maybe even add one to my header.

A First Try

I set up this blog to share with cyberworld some of my digital creations. I'm currently working on a collaborative kit with Scrap Kit Challenge called Enchanted Garden.

This is my first try at blogging so if it isn't working correctly, it's probably because I haven't figured out how to do it correctly yet.
