Fall Frolic–Funtastic Kit and Freebies from Andilynn Designs

Sorry!!! I know I told you I had a new digital scrapbook kit, some coordinating items and a freebie coming out yesterday.  I fully intended to write this post yesterday.  But the Kirby dog got sick and I spent quite a bit of time Thursday night and yesterday taking care of him.  So I am late again!  The story of my life, sometimes I wonder why I bite off so much, but I just can’t seem to help it.

So here are my new goodies for this week, all of the images are linked to their spot in my store at ScrapMatters.  I had such a blast making this kit.  It was kind of funny though the blue started out a lot more gray.  As the weather here in Seattle turned gray the gray started turning into blue.  I miss the blue skies.  The freebie is further down in the post, my not so subtle way of trying to get you to read to the end of  the post.

Look at how my CT rocked this kit.  They came up with some fabulous LOs–the images are clickable so you can go give them some love if you want to.  But make sure you read to the end of the post for some good, old-fashioned savings on Fall Frolic–the kit and/or the word art and/or the bonus alphas.

I Love Glee! Confessions of a high school musical ensemble lover…

No,  I don’t love High School Musical the movie, actually I’ve never seen it, so I guess I might.   But I do love the TV show Glee.  I’ve always loved musicals, but never in a million years thought that I would like this one,  it totally surprised me.  Funny, touching, smart, witty, wicked and just plain fun.  The music is incredible.  I love this rendition of Queen’s “Somebody to Love.”  Fabulous, it’s from episode five and starts at 40:11 if you want to watch it being performed on Hulu.  Don’t laugh that I know where!

And then there are all the funny You Tube lip syncs.  This one is pretty darn funny.

I think I have an infected root canal or something.  I can’t sleep because my left maxilla (upper jaw bone) is so swollen and sore, despite the vicodin.  In fact, the vicodin is probably why I am writing this post at all.  I should have been working, but no I had to watch Glee and write this  meaningless post, but for those of you who think all I do is work on SM, see I do have a few diversions.

Oh and my other favorite show right now is Bones, DH and DD watch it with me, we cozy up together and watch the terrific ensemble cast work their magic.  Despite the gore, DH and I find ourselves laughing at the interaction between Booth and Brennan and the rest of the cast.

Well I have a new kit, with coordinating word art, bonus alpha and a freebie coming out on Friday.  If I don’t have to spend all day at the dentist I will try to get a cute sneak peak up tomorrow (I mean today).

So Long to Summer–New Kit and Freebie

Freebies from my latest kits…

I have been busy!  I have been so busy in fact that I haven’t had time to post the freebies that go with my last four or five products.  So here is a  heads up on one of my latest,  I’ll try to get the others posted in the next few days.

Today I put a new kit in the store called Bliss.  I loved the colors and the kit just seemed to flow together. I didn’t mean for it to be a wedding kit, but there are so many wedding LOs created with it.

Look what the CT created with it:

While summer is coming to an end, here in the northern hemisphere at least, there is still time to play and enjoy the fun activities that summer brings.  Iwas born and raised and still  live in the Seattle, WA, USA area, home of gray, rainy days much of the year.  Because of all that gray, my mom used to take us kids to visit her cousin in eastern Oregon, where it is hot and dry, every summer when I was growing up.  I remember going to see Wallowa Lake and picnicing in many state parks.  But what I remember most from those hot summer days was floating down inner tubes in Catherine Creek.  The creek was perfect for kids to cool off in.  Not too deep, the current wasn’t too swift, it was just heaven floating down the creek.  I don’t have any pictures from those days to scrap, but if I did, this quick page would be so easy to quickly scrap the memories.  I hope you enjoy this quick page, you will find all kinds of freebies along the blog train this year, not just quick pages.

Holy moly!  Can SM really be turning two?  Time has flown by these past two years.  I literally can not believe how much SM has grown–from a little idea in my head to this:  a fun site with an active, wonderful community.  A gallery filled with unlimited inspiration.  Thanks to all of you who have helped ScrapMatters become what it is today.

We have a fabulous collab called “A Perfect Picnic” that is free with a $15 purchase.  There will be a blog train starting here at my blog–with three different kinds of goodies.  There are quite a few fun games and speed scraps galore.

I am hosting an introduce yourself game this weekend–with fabulous prizes, so if you’ve never taken the time to register and introduce yourself at ScrapMatters, this would be the weekend to do so. ;D
