new blog feature :: free downloads

I've shared several downloads with you recently, and if you're anything like me {???} free is a very good thing. To make it easier for you, I've just added a free downloads tab in the menu bar located beneath the blog header. I have more free goodies for you up my design sleeve!

Today, I'm working on cleaning up my scrap room {which is also the laundry room and computer room} and the adjoining space known as the furnace room, which is really just an ongoing full-force tornado. Ugh, be still my Type-A, compulsive, neatness counts heart!

Until I share my cleaned up, prettied up and ready-for-scrappin room, I'll leave you with these two layouts. The first is a layout I did back in March while visiting my BFF {of 33 years} in Nashville and the second is an assignment from my Inspiration: Defined class at Big Picture Scrapbooking. It's taught by Elizabeth Dillowauthor and co-founder, along with Marnie Flores, of

We were to use one of our own layouts as inspiration for a new layout. What do you think? BTW-The photo on the left was taken about 17 years ago and the photo on the right was taken 2 years ago...don't let time hold you back from scrapping whatever memories you might still have of that particular moment. And the portrait above Isabella {you know, of that super precious young lady having a tea party with her Steiff teddy?} is of her. It's been hanging at our hometown shopping mall for 3 years now! Other portraits have come and gone, but hers continues to hang in all its glory. Oh, and aren't her pink hi-top Converse too cute?


  1. very interesting and 2 different pages really!
    one quite boyish and the other very feminine.
    Thanks for inspiring me ;-)

  2. Love your LOs, that is a great design!!
    I love using old LO designs as inspiration for new LOs.

    And thanks for sharing your free downloads, I have no idea when it comes to designing these type of things so always appreciate people kind enough to share their creative talent :)

  3. Too cute indeed. I really love the stitching on the right sided LO. Thanks again for the freebies too- a lovely blessing! :)

  4. Great dowlnoads!! Really, especially those summer words in full colours! I'm gonna try this :)

  5. I'm so glad to be back among the living. :) Love the downloads-I've loved that WCS has been doing more of those!
    Can you believe that I had pink hightops like those in high school? :)
