The Blog Train

No, I'm not a participating designer. To be honest, I'm not a designer at all, but I do love freebies! This month you can hop on the Blog Train and visit 90 blogs and download free holiday kits. These people are so talented. Be sure to visit the blogs and leave some blog love! I guarantee that you will have trouble choosing which kit to use for whatever holiday project you have in mind. And please, be sure to abide by the Terms of Use.

Christmas light a freebie last year from Northridge.

My Memories Suite - Freebie Friday

I have another great selection for you of a two page spread from My Memories Suite.  Remember you get the quick pages and the papers and elements used to make them.

I know some people are confused by the quick pages, thinking they are backgrounds. They are EMBELLISHMENTS, so you add them that way, and then add your picture and send your picture to the back.

This is the page I've selected for you this week. I really like how the bottom one is divided. There are so many things you can do with that, with a little imagination. You can download these here. Please remember that these are limited offers and exclusive for me to share with you!

 Here is an example of what can be done with these quick pages.

Hope you enjoy them.

So Did I Really Accomplish Anything?

Let's face it, holiday weekends are almost always a total washout if you want to get anything done. Really, I felt lucky to get the house clean for company - younger daughter and her cat. They showed up on Wednesday and Thursday, of course was Thanksgiving, which I spent cooking. It was 60+ degrees here and by the time dinner was done, I was ready to put shorts on.

The day after Thanksgiving, was of course, Black Friday. No, I didn't participate in the crazy sales this year. I did it once and that has cured me forever. My wonderful DH, however, used to get up early the day after Thanksgiving and shop for my gifts. Even he participated in cyber shopping this year. Mine is almost done, just have to pick up an item set aside for me and I will be done. I've kept up with the wrapping so that is out of the way.

Unfortunately, the weather does not want to cooperate enough for us to get our Christmas stuff out of the shed or any lights up outside. This incessant rain will make me crazy yet.

I did get the chance Sunday night to participate in My Memories FB page Speed Scrap. It was fun, and I layered away.  The page was mostly done with "Joyeux Noel" by Becca. I did the word art for "2010" but The Merry and Christmas were already for me to plop on the page. This was done, incidentally with My Memories Suite version 3 which was released last week. Some of the changes are big, some subtle, but they really make it easier to use.

If you are observant, you will notice that I redesigned the blog header. I'm still tweaking it, hope to get it a little smaller yet, and plan to change it out regularly! So I guess the weekend wasn't a total loss!
