Long time no blog - and a GIFT!

Before I get to the gift...long time no blog from me. I just noticed the last time I blogged was the 11th...last week! I've been busy with working, and I've also been working on something special. More on that at the end of the post.

To update you a little on my Mother's Day I talked about in my last post - it was interesting to say the least! After I posted we opened the oven expecting our pizza to be done, and it was nowhere near! We've been having problems with our oven that we haven't gotten fixed yet, so we had to take it over to our neighbors, who just happens to be my best friend and boss. Luckily she was understanding and threw it in for us, otherwise we'd have had nothing for dinner that night! But boy, it was a catastrophe when it came out. A combination of a little too much oil on the dough and lots of pepperoni, and it was an over-greasy mess! I barely ate one piece, and I was sick the entire morning after! The popcorn and movie were both good though lol.

Okay, I'll get to the gift now...

Monday I was looking through my files of designs, and I noticed I still had some pieces to the Mother's Day kit that I liked. So I thought, "Why not give it another go?" It's so much better creating without a deadline! So I gave it another go and here's what I came up with...so much better. The first part today will be the paper word art I created. These are little paper strips with sayings and words on them. There's a total of 31, 30 with phrases and words, making sure to include grandma in there, and including "3 Generations" all the way up to "6 Generations"! There is also a blank one so you can customize it any way you like. Like I said, there are phrases to include mothers and grandmothers, so you can scrap those photos of Mother's Day celebrations. The papers and elements are quite vintage looking, so these photos would be perfect for all those old heritage photos. I am going to try to come back tomorrow with a layout to show you all.

Here's the first download - it's very small in size.

Hope you enjoy them! The papers will be tomorrow - as for the elements, I can't promise they will come the day after. As they stand right now, I'm not fond of some of them. But I had to take a break and do something for just me, so I will figure it out and I will have them!

I'm digi-scrapping tonight and I'd like to share a layout I just made.

You can't really see it too well. But it's made from Tiffany's SYTYCD Week 2 kit, "Dated: May". Unfortunately, she didn't make it to round 3. But she says she will be coming out with new stuff soon. Her son's birthday is next weekend, and she has to get stuff ready for that, and her in-laws are visiting as well. I look forward to her new stuff :) Go check out her blog!

I think that's all for me today. I will be back tomorrow night with the papers to the Mother's Day kit and hopefully a layout made with them. I really like these papers! I will also try to figure out what to do with my elements :) Good night!
