Silly Me..and a freebie for you

Just a short post today, my PC is Kaput so I am having to use my laptop, although I like the laptop to take away with me (and when my PC isn’t working) I hate using it full time, I can’t get to grips using without a mouse wither so have to attach my mouse here, my IT man is away on Holiday until later today so it will probably be a few days before I can get sorted, I am praying he can get me back in there as I have loads of stuff on there that I need!! serves me right I got a little complacent, my EHD is full (3 of them!) and was going to buy one soon so stored things on my PC as there is tons of space..now I can’t get at it..all I get is the Intel logo screen and thats it. Dratt!! *sob*

I had made a Kit to share for the Colour challenge over at DAC but as you may have you guessed it’s on there too..so Karyn kindly let me use some of her lovely Colour Challenge kit to create these BB pages for you..

I hate not to take part over at DAC, I have been a member there as long as it’s been going and Melo is just Wonderful, all the people associated with the site are, it’s such a friendly place to be..
so without further yap from me here is the link to the file, click on the preview to get them, and please leave me a little Thank you if you do download it will mean a lot..
Bye for now, enjoy the rest of the weekend and have a Great week.

Luv..Linda x

Long Time No Blog

Hi everyone, it's been an age since I last blogged, I have been out of sorts and had very little time or inclination to do much of anything just lately, my M.I.L's death knocked me for 6 and it's been a struggle to come to terms with, things are getting easier but I am sure it will be a while yet until I can get over it...but I have to carry on, the kids finish school here tomorrow and I don't want my miserable face to spoil it for them when they come around more..

So I am putting on my Smiley face  and getting down to it.

Here is something I made to share this week that I made using Anna's lovely new kit  Marshmallow it's in her shop just now on Special at the

Sale price of $1.00 !! you Save 50% off the normal price, what a Bargain!


here is the preview of the page, it's a layout I did of my Oldest daughter Samantha just after she had our oldest Grandson Liam, he left school this week! gosh where does time go to....Mother&Son

here is another layout I did using the kit, this is also Samantha at stages through her life, I called it the "Circle Of Life"


so you can see the kit is so adaptable, and can be used for so many types of layout..
I am now a CT member over at SDK!  I worked on a Beautiful new kit in the shop by Scrappin Diva (Kristi W) ~ I Do Believe a kit packed with so many goodies! you will have to see for yourself...folder

here are 2 layouts I did of my youngest granddaughter Ellie on her 4th birthday using the kit, FairyDust

in the 2nd layout are our two youngest granddaughters, Ellie and Ebony....


I have also worked on a couple of layouts for Rachael using her lovely Heirlooms Kit over at Digital Arts-cafe


or see more of Rachael's Kits over  at Inspired Scraps.

Here are the layouts I did using the kit..



well if you have kept with me so long you deserve more than a free QP! but it's all I have just now so without further ado Here is the link
Enjoy and say Hi I would love to hear from you.
Bye for now - Take Care

Back again...and so Sad

Hi all, it's been a very fraught couple of weeks, and tonight we lost my dear M.I.L to Alzheimers..:(  although they have been saying the last couple of weeks that she is near the end it's still a terrible thing to hear..she was a lovely Gentle Lady..and I have missed her over the last couple of years that she has been suffering with this awful thing, she was not only my mother in law she was a Good Friend...
On the subject of my mum the news is better than we expected (Thank God!) her tumour has shrunk, and could shrink further, they can't operate to remove it yet because of her being on Warfrin for the clots on her lungs, until she has been on it 6 months they say it can be dangerous, but she is now happier in herself..

I had made these QP's for Fathers Day pages for tomorrow so I am posting them early as we will have our kids over tomorrow and I won't get much chance for a few days
I made them with Ann's (
Delicious Scraps) Kit Thank You Dad..

Thank You Dad Mini Kit - Click Image to Close

Here is the preview of the first QP..click on image to download..


and the 2nd one, click on the Image to download


Thanks for reading this far if you are still with me, I wish you a Lovely Weekend with your families, they are so precious and we never know how long we will have them around..
Bye for now

Luv..Linda x

Update and a Freebie QP

Sorry it's been so long, it's getting so hard to get down to all I have to do just now, my poor blog has to come in way down the list, ahh what I wouldn't give for some Normality!
Mum had to go to for tests last week, MRI and CT, I went with her both times, I don't know who gets more worked up her or me! today she had an appointment with the Oncology Nurse,  just a check up really, we did think she would get the test results but not so, on Thursday she goes again to see the Surgeon, he will then probably tell her how it's going, if the tumour has shrunk or spread, God forbid it has!
anyhoo enough of that, the weather here has been glorious, not that I have seen much of it, but we did manage to get to the Caravan for the weekend so I took my trusty laptop and here is a little something I made for you using
Rachael's new Kit, A New Day


here are some layouts I did too with the kit..
PlayIsTheWorkOfChildhood. AWalkInTheCountry


hope you like the QP, please leave a little love it will cheer me no end!
oops I forgot to say click on the preview of the QP to download..:-)
Bye for now and take care

Col.Challenge Freebie

Hi all, just a quick post to let you know I am still here, Very busy as per usual!!
This weekend my hubby is over in Spain so I have used the time to decorate my bedroom, our 2 grandson's came to help me and boy was I glad of them!! *love you lads*. they were wonderful, Josh is 12 and Liam is 16 and he is so strong! he is only 10stone wet through but strong as an ox, our Josh stayed the night here and was a Great help putting everything back with me today..
I just got myself locked out! what happened was my sister called on her way to mum's and I was lending her some books for her to read, I ran out when I saw the car and when I turned back the flippin door had closed on me! there was I stood on the front (We live on a Busy main road) pants and top full of paint my hair snatched back in a pony tail (don't think I even combed it today) luckily she hadn't pulled off so I ran after her and she took me to my daughters to get a key, it was lucky she was in as she had been out to lunch at Dave's brothers..
Once I got back in I decided to get the last few bits of this kit finished and now I am going to have a stiff drink, a long soak and an early night
Before I go here are a couple of layouts I have done using the new Love Earth kit by Delicious Scraps, it's Gorgeous!! and on sale for just $1!! I honestly don't know how Anna can be so generous! she is amazing!



look at this Sheep! it was so funny, we were walking along a country lane near the caravan when I saw this above us on a bit of a hill, so I started to snap away with my camera, I thought it would run away as we got near but the thing never moved only his head and followed me with his eyes all the way past! I wished I had my video camera with me
and here is your freebie if you are still with me, bet you are glad it is a short post ;-)......lol..


Click on preview to Download..
Hope you like it, well now I am going, we have a tough week ahead, mum goes back to the Consultant, we thought it was tomorrow but she says it's Tuesday, so will have to get the letter they sent and check it, she also got the dates for her MRI and other scans for the 26th and 28th, what with blood clinic every week or more it's one long round of Hospital visits..but as long as they can help her we will do whatever is needed...Please keep us especially mum in your thoughts and prayers this week>>
Bye for Now

Long time no post!!

Hi all, I know I am a stranger these days, it's hard trying to keep up here with going to mum's more just now....
She is getting more and more down due to the tests that she knows will be coming when she goes back to see her Consultant on Monday..it's a strain on us all...
I have not been back long one of my sisters and I have ben working the last 2 days on making a new Headboard for mum and dad's bed, I could kick myself for not taking pictures along the way, to see a piece of MDF turn into the completed Headboard now is amazing!! the downside is I have lost 5 of my nails in the process!! *sob* doing these jobs sure is hard on a gal :(  when I go tomorrow I will take a picture to show you the result..:)

I have also made a little freebie to share with you made Using the Lovely Iced Wine kit by Delicious Scraps

Well it's time I was gone, got a busy day tomorrow, got to take mum to the Vampires..lol..only kidding!  it's mum's blood day at the Hospital, they can't get her Warfrin levels right so we are back and forward there every week, sometimes twice a week..
You enjoy the rest of your week

Bye for now
