I can say from personal experience that the after math of a hurricane hitting land fall is no fun. Though our damage was nothing compared to the actually Gulf Coast area on the coast it still was not something that I wish to go threw ever again.
So, for anyone reading this please keep those on the Gulf Coast area in your prayers!

Today almost half the kids requested to do their worksheets first. I was so honored. Then one kid who had been having break downs to doing work, just sat down and did the entire work with yes maam's.
There are so many talented people at this site which makes wining all the more an honor for. I wouldn't have started this blog. I wouldn't have gotten back into drawing on the computer if it weren't for such great inspiration.
Click on my gallery it should take you straight to my gallery.
Thanks a bunch ladies!

To adminstrative staff the center totally rocks!!!!!
My dh took me the over the day to a place called road runner. A gigantic store for runners. they literally scanned my feet, and had me run on a tred mill to find the right shoe. OMG!!! It made total difference.
Gotta run off to get ready...

This kit was inspired by my childhood fanasty and other childrens' wishes to have a room like the goodnight moon room. So, I put together this little kit by either handdrawing images similar to what was in the goodnight moon book or using basic shapes for all those children that to this day still say "Goodnight Moon".
A great big Thank You to Margaret Ann Wise Brown for writing the story so many years ago. You have brought generations lots of warm fuzzy goodnights every night.
Let's try this 4 share link again. It didn't work the other day.

This thank you card kit was inspired by the cake themes at my family's birthday parties this past weekend. One is polly pocket inspired and the other is ladybug inspired. I hope this is useful for other people.
Everything was handdrawn in paint. Remember to change the background to transparency when layering these. Basic paint does not have that feature.
For some strange reason my link to for shared is not a direct path. I have tried everything to get it to work. So, either copy and paste it to the web browswer or email me. I will email you the link. I am sssssooooo ssssooorrrryyy..
Please leave comments after downloading.

Question, do you still rsvp? If not why or if so why?
I am little confused by the lack of response by people to rsvp by a deadline.
So, let me know what the new social rule is concerning this. I really need to know.

He bought the Olympus FE-310. I have to say, it was easier to learn how to use than or older one. Its image stablization feature totally rocks. If the picture taker or the object of the picture is moving around it stabilize it beautifully. Not bad shutter time either. Its zoom makes the mazda commerical look wimpy. Grant it, I went from 3 x zoon to 5 x zoom. It still rocks.
I won't lie that originally we were looking at an srl/dsrl (sp?) camera which would make me look like a pro but the learning curve and portability was an issue. Though looking at those models still makes my mouth water like a water fall. Sweet equipment but not what we needed for a family on the go with lots of functions to attend.
So, if you are looking for a new digital camera, I highly recommend this baby. Yes, its the new "baby" in our family.. OOOieeeeee

This was inspired by a note sheet that was sent home for my children from meet the teacher day and by one of the names I heard there. Yes, Hoppe is the name I heard. I asked twice to make sure I was correctly saying it. I like the frog but not the entire note sheet. So, to make something special not just for my own family but to help other families. I sketched my own version of what I wanted in basic paint.
So, Hoppe First Day of School to all kiddos starting this week or in the next month.
Remember with my downloads you will need to change the background to transparency because basic paint does not have a way to make it transparent.
I will do my best to keep you updated and release a freebie in the process for you to use.
Update..I have a new cheerleading kit in the works, a very special kit inspired by a very special story that I loved as a child and so do my children, and other kits in the works to be released.
keep checking in to see what will be popping up in the next few weeks.

Okay, I just sketched this in basic paint for my family album on our cheerleading experience. Its not the right colors just yet nor do I have all the additional stuff sketched for the page. I thought I would get your opinion on it and give away a freebie if you like.
If you like it, please leave comments on the blog.

I tried attaching my digital layout image however it won't show up from a web link. So, scroll down to the bottom of the blog to my link for my gallery.
I won the weekly digital chat challenge for a digital scrapbooking site I participate in frequently. I am so excited. I can't believe it. I don't use any fancy computer software to do my digital scrapbooking. So, this should help anyone thinking they can't do it without the fancy equipment or software go, yes I can!!! Oh, my day is starting off so right!
By the way, I do have bad days as well. Its just I like to celebrate the good things that happen in my life out loud.
