Another qp from fishing with Dad

Just a quick post to give you this qp. Here is another quick page from my fishing with dad kit. It actually doesn't say fishing with dad on it.........that's just the name of the kit.

Tomorrow I have a qp I made using JoJo's puppy kit.
I think I still need to give you the frames for those too!

Fishing with Dad Quick-page

Hey everyone.
As promised I'm giving you a quick-page from my Fishing with Dad kit. I made this page describing a day my husband Jose had the other day. He went fishing. I actually didn't have any photos to scrap but had a big story to tell. It's really quite funny. Here is the page.




He got chased by this nutria. I laughed till I was crying. I think he got a little mad at me too but I couldn't help it. He was fishing and (this is true - he used cheetos and anything else he can find) put a cheeto on his line. Well he caught something and started reeling it in. Well it came in faster than he could reel and then whatever he caught came right up on land and chased him. True story! He came in telling me a rat or beaver chased him and he jumped in the back of our Tundra pick-up to get away from it. I'm sorry........but that's just funny and all I had was this picture in my head of something chasing him. Well, he called my mom and talked to her about it (which she laughed too but) and she actually knew what chased him into the truck. It's called a Nutra or Nutria. She said that "we" imported these creatures from the Louisiana swamps (she says) to clean up our lakes and rivers. So I had to look it up on the internet and here it is. Above is what chased my poor Jose. I would have ran too.......... Mom said they didn't get that big but talking to fishermen here, I've been told they can be the size of small dogs. One even said that he had some at his pond where he fishes. So he didn't imagine it. I still have this mental picture though! LOL

The quick page is a little different but I think better. Planned it out better anyways. So here it is.

SleepyTimeLambs Kit

Sorry I haven't been on a whole lot. Still trying to catch up. I know. Lousy excuse considering (Pam from digitreats posted everyday on her vacation - she's amazing and Ginger's posted everyday even though she's been sick - lets keep wishing her well - she'll be going to London here pretty soon) but I'm just not that good I guess. Been working my regular job and it takes quite a toll sometimes. But also trying to catch back up in the store. We're having a spring cleaning sale at ScrapitSassy the rest of this month to the 1st of May. So you should all check it out. Great sales going on.
I made this kit to put in the store. I've decided to call it Sleepy Time Lambs. I wanted to call it Mary's Little Lambs but I was afraid I'd get in trouble for using that name. So basically this is Mary and her lambs.
I drew these lambs on my computer. Getting kind-of OK at that. I think they are pretty cute. Not sure if the rattle fits with the kit but I have it there anyway.




Here is the quick page that I am giving you today.





Tomorrow I'm gonna give you a page from my fishing with dad kit.

Just added Easter kit to the store.

Hey All,


I just added my Easter kit to the store. Trying to get caught up before they kick me out.....LOL. I gotta get my quota in for the month. Being gone for half the month kicked my behind. So, as soon as I can I'll get you all some good stuff going. Here is a preview of the kit..........most you have seen before but I added a really cute bunny to go with it. I drew it on the computer. I think he turned out pretty cute.

I didn't get to do anything the last couple of days because we bought a new washer and dryer. The good ones. They are front-loaders and guess what ........they are red. We had them delivered yesterday. I love them. We've gone a week without doing laundry. WE sent once to the laundry mat to dry our clothes. We could wash but not dry.......our dryer had went out. So lifes been a little busy lately. So you all take care and i'll be back tomorrow.

Yeah! Yeah! Yeah!




Hi guys,
I finally got my software uploaded...........yeah yeah YEAH!
I feel almost whole now. I'm so behind in everything. Not even sure where to start. Still trying to finish all of my scrapbook pages to make my wedding album. I can get a 100 page book from Winkflash for a flat rate until the end of this month. You should check it out. You can get up to 100 pages or less. So, I'm still working on that. Here is a few MORE pages I made. I've also got some great wordart for you. I was looking for some for this page I was doing and couldn't find the one I wanted so I made my own.
This page is sort-of the toast. Noone actually gave a toast but we drank champaigne anyway.
The necklace was made by Pam of Digitreats. She made that for me for my wedding. Wasn't that awesome of her!

The wordart used below is by Bethany of Elegant Wordart 2.
I'm still using my Seashore Wedding kit to make all of these.
And last but not the least, is the page I just made using my wordart that I made. I just came up with this out of my head but if it is an actual quote from someone just let me know. But I've never seen it anywhere.

Now here is your freebie. I'm giving you the black version of the quote and the version I used in my page. It has color and shadows all. But I gave you the solid black version in case you want to change it to fit your pages.

Enjoy!

Sorry..........I was MIA for a while because...............

Hi Everyone,
So, so sorry I was MIA for a while. Remember my new computer that I got from Christmas. Well, I went to my moms the other day, actually the first of the month, and I took the current computer that I have been using this whole time to my moms for my little nephew to use for school. To be honest, besides being a huge procrastinater, I hated to see it go. I've had it about 8-10 yrs now and I only had minor problems with it. Its hard to let go of a good thing even though what I was getting in return would be so so much better.
Well, I had built the new computer way before I had left but hadn't tried it out yet. I know it sounds like I'm lazy, but I had to disconnect the old one from monitor and all that stuff to try it out. Which is not hard at all. I just kept doing stuff on the old computer. Like talking with yall, checking emails, making my kits, making pages and just keeping up with the store. Just so easy to keep using the same computer.
So when I got home and hooked my NEW one up.........it didn't work. Wouldn't even come one. You can imagine my distress. Took me a week to realize that it wasn't anything to do with me putting it together...........the power supply was out. They say 80-85 % of the time, when you have your computer shipped to you and it doesn't come on, it's the power supply. So, I bought a new one and put it in and it worked.
But that is only the beginning. Then I had to do the bios and make sure everything worked. Then install windows. Then I couldn't get my internet on. I had to install a new network card and then come to find out the cord to my internet modem was not working. So now it's hooked up thru USB. Whew...............!!!
So then yeah! I finally got on the internet. Now I'm trying to get all my programs on. I did get photoshop on but I can't seem to find my Microsoft Digital Imaging Program. I can't live without that one. I have to have it. So, my mom is mailing a copy of hers to me so I can install it. I am sure I'll find it after she sends me hers. Always do.
So I'm back but I don't have anything for you yet. I did buy photoshop 7 for dummies to get me more used to photoshop. I know it's a better program. I'm just used to the other. So bare with me for a little bit. I'll be back to my usual stuff in no time.
Look at it this way though. With the few problems...lol.........that I had...............I built my own computer for less than $450. Isnt' that fantastic and I love it. It's so fast and much smoother than the other one. It also glows blue.....lol. Really! It does. Even the box fan in the back glows blue and I also have a digital thing on the back that lets me know the temp of my system. Too cool! Also, I now have a 2.6 ghz processor instead of a 1.something. And I have 3 gb of RAM instead of the 1 gb RAM in the old computer (which was the highest it could have). I can have a total of 8gb RAM on this computer but I read that windows only supports up to 4 gb. That's just what I read though.
But I built it. I just hope that it lasts as long as my other one.
So, I'll see you later. I have to catch up.

Fishing With Dad Kit................in store.

I made this kit because I love to go fishing with my Dad. Which is funny because I hated it when I was young. He used to take us when we were little and I usually just read a book the whole time.....LOL That used to frustrate him then. Now I really enjoy fishing with him. It's much more casual now and relaxing. Funny what you remember when your young. Back then I felt like it was more of a chore to fish. I tell you. Kids can be quite awful to their parents when they are young. Now I get to spend that real quality time with my dad and enjoy it. So, I have lots of fishing photos with my dad. Plus, I'm now married to an aspiring fisherman. Jose just got into it when he met me and he loves it. He destresses when he fishes, especially in Corpus at the ocean. And trust me he needs that destressing time.

So, most of the stuff in this kit is what we actually use. I meant to get some of my dads homemade fishing jigs in there but couldn't find them until now. Maybe I'll make an addon later.

I also put a lot of board frames in here too. There's 3 cluster frames, 1 holds 2 photos, another holds 4 photos and the last holds 9 photos. There are also corks aka bobbers, fishing poles, fish (we actually caught), soft plastic bait, jigs, plastic worms, hooks, treble hooks, plastic lizzards, our yellow kayak, a butterfly/moth, rocks, fishing line and lures.
I'm going to my moms the next 4 days so I may not be here for a bit. She has dial-up and it really sucks to be on the internet there. Checking email is almost impossible. So, I'll try to be back in a bit to give you something, if not I'll definitely be back by Thursday.

Later,

April
