Desktop Wallpaper/Calendar Anyone?

These sure make for neat looking desktops, although I must confess to having a solid black desktop myself....with a funny (Garfield) perched in the middle. The first thing I check online every day is the Garfield funny....puts a smile on my face. And the good ones end up on the desktop untill a funnier one comes along. (btw I get these via a 'Feed' on Yahoo)

Sunday Afternoon Drive

Going for a drive on a Sunday Afternoon was just one of those things that we often did, growing up. I loved it...most of the time. And I started young...that is baby me in my Mom`s arms.

Yeah...I was cute...once upon a time...ROFLOL

Let it Snow!

uhmmm...well in a little bit, ok? Not quite just yet. Ha!

But since I have lots of pictures from last winter still as yet unscrapped, I thought I would make a start (I'm only about a year late, right?), seeing as Kimberly Stewart just released her Winter Joy Kit this week.

I think Kimmi likes snowmen as much as I do. Take a look at this :

And here is my LO...our 'world' was picture perfect. When I was little we called these 'chocolate box' pictures. Do you remember those boxes of chocolate with pretty pictures on? Lately I've been calling these kinds of pictures 'jigsaw puzzle pictures' . Chop this photograph into 1000 pieces and it'll take a while to make is right! LOL

The alpha I used here is Kimmi's Snowflakes Alpha (no longer available)

Finally I have a freebie QP for you that you can grab HERE...Enjoy!

Brr I think I need a warm drink now, all the talk about winter and snow makes me feel cold!
Catch you later!

Images of Fall...

Wow! This was a busy week! Look at me only now getting the chance to post this! Ugh!

Gypsy Couture released her latest kit 'Touch of Spice' on Thursday. I love the vibrant oranges of this season! Lisa also released her 'Wordy Alpha' very versatile and fun alpha!

I made this LO with these products, just showing some of the fall images around me. We've been having lots of rain so everything is clean and fresh. I hope the sun breaks through at least a little tomorrow, so I can go capture some more of these on film (or should I say 'chip' ?)

and I turned it into a QP for you, which you can download HERE

On Sunday Rina Kroes and Kimmi Stewart are releasing a new Autumn Collab....don't miss it!!

Thanks for dropping by!

Here Kitty Kitty....

I've always had a thing for cats....too bad I'm allergic to them. Every once in a while I have a good cuddle just to satisfy the urge...LOL. How I would love a snooze like this....

The LO features -mostly- Kimberly Stewart's kit (above image is linked)

Now I hope to take my camera and see what beauties may be found on my walk today...

Persimmons Any One?

Pictures/previews for this page have been removed due to Designers retiring and stores closing

Did that get your attention? Ha! It sure got mine when I saw the name of Gypsy Couture's new kit for today!

I think it is beautiful, and my LO does not do it justice, but follow that store link and you'll find some gorgeous LO! (remember the kit is on sale today (Thursday) only!

I wanted to leave enough room here for journalling. I was not yet born when this picture was taken, so I need to get a lot more information before I can finish it off with the story!

Lisa also has these yummy papers new in her store today

I used these for my bg in this LO (the green paper is from the Persimmon Pucker PaperPack) and I used Lisa's Page Genies 4 to get those great curves in the bg. The clustered frame, btw, is included in the Persimmon Pucker page Set (2 clustered frames and 2 element clusters)
The picture is very poor quality, so I had to keep it small...

and last but not least...drop by Lisa's Gypsy Couture blog for this beautiful element cluster freebie!

Have fun!....later gators.
