Stayed up way too late scrapping last night but came up with this new paper line (which is still in the works) but isn't it too fun!? I also used my Funky Flourish Rubons :)

ok.. so a new technique for me! I'm sure many of you already know how to do this BUT... I was just browsing through some digi blogs when I came across this awesome step-by-step tutorial on Misty Cato's Blog on how to get this look. I immediately opened up PSE4 and created this in literally under 1 minute! So simple and yet I love the look!! If you look at my basketball LO further on down you'll see something *similiar* to this... in fact, this was the look I was going for but didn't quite know how to achieve it - and so I cut my ds out of the original photo and used it as the background -- took much longer than 1 minute - LOL ... EDITED TO UPDATE: I created this LO using the technique I learned... just a quickie to capture my sons favorites at this age.
(paper is by Kim Christensen and the flourishes are by Doris Castle)

I've been working on another little mini kit to give out on Monday. I'll give you a hint... it's called MOCHA PETALS and has lots of rich textures! Be sure to stop by on Monday to pick it up :)
Also, all links are still active for all of my current Freebies so just browse through my blog to see if there's anything you can use... See ya'll later!

Boy o' boy! I've really been missing the designing! Life has been a little more demanding the past week and a half. My DH is in the military and is currently the Rear Detachment Commander for a unit that is currently in Iraq. 3 of their men were killed last week. Since then, he has been unbelievably busy with taking care of notifying all of the family's, completing all the paperwork, and overseeing the funerals. There were several days that he only made it home for a few hours to catch some sleep. Add to that, all of my boys have had a 5 day weekend (with Parent Teacher Conferences, President's Day and a Teacher Inservice day) I haven't had time to create anything.
BUT... I have been thinking of something. I know Friday is a BIG Freebie day so wanted to spread some of the L.O.V.E. throughout the week. It's going to be my *goal* to institute MGM here at my blog. What is MGM you ask? Well, it's short for My Giveaway Mondays (I couldn't really think of anything that went well with "Monday" so went with this one - LOL). Along with that, I'm also wanting to throw in TT -- which stands for Take it Thursdays. It really could be anything you find here on those days -- might be a word art, a template, paper packs or even a mini kit! So... be sure to check back.
One more thing... Just wanted to say that I would REALLY love to see any and all things you create using my stuff! I've only ever gotten one link (THANK YOU LVMOMMY22) to a LO (and I even went and registered at that site just so I could comment on the LO - hehehe). Anyway, hope you all are having a great Monday night!

ok.. so here is my first attempt at making my own digital papers. I've acquired so many freebies from some great digital designers that I thought I'd try and create something for "paybacks".
Truthfully I need to find out the etiquette on using free brushes to create papers and elements. I used misprinted type and also MissM brushes that I downloaded for free to make these. I named it the Yorkshire Collection because I drew my inspiration from the colors of my home decor and we live on Yorkshire Lane. :)
oh yeah, and I also need to look into sites such as 4shared.com and find out exactly how to go about sharing my work. I was just too excited to see this posted on my blog to wait for all the details - LOL
