Annoying Spammers

Thanks so much to those who have taken the time to comment. I really appreciate it.

I had to turn comment moderation back on as well as word verification for comments because I kept getting spam comments. How annoying! Sorry about that.

Cherry Lime Parfait QP

Have insomnia tonight so I thought I would do something productive and made another quickpage for you. But first I have to share a prayer request. Please say a prayer for my Grandma Mary. She was admitted to the hospital on Wednesday for breathing difficulties. Later that night, she had to be put on a respirator. The first diagnosis from the lung specialist looked good because they thought it was just pneumonia. She was also seen by a heart specialist on Thursday who said she has a leak around her heart but that they couldn't treat that until the infections in her lungs cleared up. Today, however, the lung specialist came in to see her again with the results of her tests and told her that she has blood clots in her lungs and that she was lucky to be alive because most people with that condition it is instantly fatal. (Yeah - no need to upset an ailing woman or anything!). So we are waiting as they determine the best course of treatment. She has been off the respirator since Friday afternoon and is only on oxygen now so at least that is good. Thanks in advance for your prayers and now on to the reason you stopped by . . .

This was created using Cherry Lime Parfait by Anita Designs. Aren't these colors perfect together?

Here is the layout I made the quickpage from.

Cold and Icy QP

I love nature photos. This was a photo I took during an ice storm last year. Thought it would make an interesting background. Here is the layout I did with it:

You can get it here if you like it.
I used Christmas on Crack font by Parallex for my layout and the preview.

Bold Fun Quickpage

I am really loving my subscription service to Anita Designs. I have used her kits for five layouts already. I like how this page using "Bold Fun" turned out so I thought I would share it with you as a quickpage.

Here is the layout I created the quickpage from.

Seabreeze Cottage Quickpage Freebie

Here is the quickpage I made for FishinmomDesigns using her new kit, Seabreeze Cottage, which I was lucky enough to get a sneak peak at. It should be in her store in the next day our so. This kit couldn't have come at more perfect time for me. I went on a little scrapping spree this past weekend (scrapped 13 pages I think) but was stuck on this one page. Yes, I know that is not a lot for some of you for one weekend but it is for me - especially since I work full time and have two little ones. LOL. (I think that is only like an hour's worth of pages for TragedyAnne!) :D The page was for my daughter's baby book but because of the subject matter I wasn't really looking for anything too girly. I spent way too long looking for the right kit the day before and finally gave up on it. But then I got Kimberly's new kit and the colors were perfect and I was able to get the page done in no time. Thanks, Kimberly!

This is the layout I made the quickpage from:

If you have a moment to spare, could you help me out with something? I am preparing to teach a class on "Going Digital" to a group of paper/traditional scrappers in a couple of weeks. Could you comment and let me know what you would have liked to have known or what would have made scrapping so much easier if you had known it when you first started digi scrapping?

Thanks. Have a great week.

Heritage Quickpages

February's Color Pallette Challenge over at Hummie's World had a heritage theme. So I thought I would try to make a quickpage album for you. In order to make these more versatile, I have made these without any cut-outs to allow you to place only one or several pictures on a layout since with heritage photos you often are limited with what you have. The font used, where applicable, was Vinque by Ray Larabie.

I thought this one might work well as an album cover and you could put your family name or album title on the bottom below the ribbon. This page was from the kit by Sandie Hill.

These pages were from the Heritage kit by Hummie.

From the Heritage Challenge kit by Babette Simanson:

From Heritage by Claudette Wooddell/Digital Gator Bytes. These were designed to be double page layouts.

From As For Me and My House Add-on by Lori Imel/LAImel Designs.

From Timeless Beauty by AC Scrapping (Annette Clay).

From Heritage by Claudette Wooddell/Digital Gator Bytes.

From Keys to the Past kit by Claudette Wooddell/Digital Gator Bytes.

From It's in the Genes kit by pammyj (Pamela Yates)
