Last Freebies

I'm back from dinner.
We went to McGrath's, a local seafood restaurant and then we went to DQ for blizzards.
It was a very nice dinner and now I'm going to watch some TV with my hubby and then head for bed.
These last freebies will be active until I wake up tomorrow.
Here's the last of my birthday freebies.



Hope you enjoy the freebies.
If you missed any of these freebies, don't worry because I'm going to bundle them into one package and you'll be able to pick them all up for one low price.

Thanks for spending the day with me,

Designer Survivor Contest

I've never joined a designer contest so I thought I'd give it a try.
I joined the Designer Survivor contest which will actually start in August and all the creations will be free downloads for the week.
It sounds like it will be fun and it'll be run like survivor where someone gets tossed out every week.
Even if I get tossed out the first week, it will still have been a fun thing for me to participate in.

In June right before we left for vacation I graduated with a certificate in Computer Programming from our local Community College, which of course I had to scrap.
This is me and my favorite teacher:

More Vacation lo's

Well...we've got the mail and the paper started coming regularly again and have just about caught up on all the other stuff that waits for our return from vacation so I thought I would take time to post some more of my vacation lo's.

Molly, who is our 2 yr old Dashound-Terrier mix, got really weird about the trailer steps.
She wouldn't go down the steps so I carried her out of the trailer the whole trip.
She didn't like the heat because when she got out of the air-conditioned trailer she wanted to go right back in.
We're still not sure why she didn't want to come down the steps.

There are always games on the 4th of July at the campground and on one of our walks we found the pit that was dug for the tug of war game. When Spunk started rolling in the grass, I couldn't resist this picture.

Spunky discovered that her favorite thing to do was roll in the grass...any grass...anywhere.
I've got a whole folder of pictures of her rolling in the grass.

Spunk did this so much that I had to scrap it more than once.

Guess Molly had to try it since it looked like so much fun.

Who wouldn't be tired after all that rolling in the grass?

In Hornbrook, which is about a mile and a half from the campground, there is always a parade on the 4th of July.
In fact it's the big celebration for miles. This year's parade lasted a little over half an hour.

This last layout is created from a new kit I'm going to put in stores this week.

We're back and I've got lo's

Well we're back from sunny California.
The weather here is Oregon is kind of a nice change from the 100 degree plus weather we've been in for the last 2 weeks.
I love going to California and being in the hot sun but it's always nice to come home.

We didn't have Internet but that wouldn't stop me from taking my laptop.
Here are some lo's I created while we were away:

This is the swimming pool at the lodge in the campground where we stay.
I created this lo using Donna Wheway's kit called A Daisy A Day which you can find here:

I got lots of shots of our 2 babies since I walked them everyday and my camera is attached to my hand.
For this lo I used the great kit from Donna Wheway called Camp Country.
You can find this great kit here:

This was the first evening we were there.
Traveling and unpacking is tiring.
For this lo I use the groovy kit called Roaring 60's by Shades of Gina and you can find this kit here:

This is us Roughin It.
We've done our time tent camping and decided that we needed an upgrade.
For this lo I used the fun kit called Beach Fun by Shades of Gina and you can find it here:

Napping was one of our main activities.
I used the colorful kit called Boy Kit from Gloria Val Verde.
You can find this kit here:

Our pups were kind enough that every day they made sure we got up at the time they thought was gettin up time.
For this lo I used the mega-collab at MooTwo Designs called Spring Breeze.
You can find this kit here:

You've heard of a Tree Frog...well this is a Tree Dog.
I still don't know what the attraction was but every time I walked the dogs down to this one area, Spunky found it absolutely necessary to dash into this one particular tree and, I'm not really sure what she did under there since I couldn't see her but she would come out the other side all tangled in the branches.
This lo was also created with the mega-collab at MooTwo Designs called Spring Breeze which you can find this kit here:
