Grand Canyon Papers 2

My little gymnast has strep throat. Yesterday morning I took her to the doctor and he confirmed it. Don't you just hate it when your kids get sick? Praise God she is feeling much, much better today though.

Here is the second set of papers to the Grand Canyon kit. Stay tuned for the elements.
And, yes, the saga of the missing remote continues!

Grand Canyon Papers 1

Eila, one of my dear friends from Montana, has created a beautiful QP from the Woods Meets Denim kit. If you haven't visited her before at A Day in the Life, you should "sit a spell" with her and get to know her. She is a gem in God's country. Remember to give her some love when you download the QP.

Here is the first set of Grand Canyon Papers. I hope you are not too disappointed as the preview really didn't show the color palette very well. You will get to see what the preview was all about next time. Enjoy the day!

Grand Canyon Sneak Preview

We have "lost" one of our remotes. It has seemingly disappeared from the house. I personally have looked high and low for it but to no avail! No remote. . . nada! It happens to be the remote to our DVD player. I tried playing an educational DVD for my daughter and I couldn't do it without the remote as there were menus that I had to click on WITH THE REMOTE. Yes, I know I could have gone into the other room and played it on another DVD player but that is not the point. The point is "there is a place for everything and everything in it's place". Enough of my soap box. I know that it WILL turn up when it is least expected!

Here is a sneak preview of the new kit that I just designed. It's called Grand Canyon.

Sunita Alpha 2

Sometimes I feel like I make the same old things. (I'm talking digital scrapbooking right now.) Do you ever feel that way? Do your layouts all look the same? I know I have a style and certain colors that I like better than others but ... well, I'll go ahead and ask this. Are my kits looking all the same to you? What is your favorite kit that I have designed so far? As I ponder these questions I have more that fill my brain. . .

Here is the 2nd alpha that I made for Sunita. I hope you are able to use it. I would love to see some layouts that have been made from my kits. Until next time, enjoy your day.

Sunita Alpha 1

Happy Monday! I hope you had a relaxing and restful weekend. This weekend my husband and I made lasagna. Making lasagna at our house is very labor-intensive since we make everything from scratch (i.e. no spaghetti sauce from jars found here). Since it is so labor-intensive to make, we make a bunch and freeze it. So we made 6 large pans and froze 5 of them.

Here is the first Sunita Alpha. Designing alphas has not been my favorite thing to do but I guess I must be liking it more as I made 2 sets for this kit. Enjoy!

More Layouts

Hello to my blog friends. I hope this finds you enjoying your day. I made two layouts of my little gymnast. She is practicing on the bars and I managed to catch her in mid-air (without it blurring) in one of the shots. She is only 10 years old but absolutely loves gymnastics.

Sunita layout

I am trying to actually make layouts from my kits (hey, what a concept to actually USE my own kits!) so I made a very simple layout using my new kit, Sunita. These are my 2 girls ... my gymnast on the left and my piano player on the right. I'll post the elements tomorrow.

Sunita Papers

I'm heading to take the girls to get school pictures this morning. Yes, even though we homeschool, we still have school pictures made. There is a school photographer who comes and takes pictures for 2 local homeschool groups.

Here are the papers for the Sunita kit. The file was big so I split it into two downloads so be sure and download both files. The downloads are at the bottom of the image. Enjoy!

I'm back!

Greetings and salutations to all of my blog friends and Happy President's Day! I took a break from my blog but am happy to say that I am back. Since I got my camera back (from being repaired) I am on a quest to take photos of different textures that I can make papers out of. You'll probably see my results in the not-so-distant future.

I have a sneak preview of a new kit that I just designed called "Sunita". Why Sunita, you ask. Well, I'll tell you. I thought the name was lovely. There, you have it.

Here is the sneak preview.

Canon Camera Customer Service

Does anyone have a Canon digital camera that is on the fritz? I have a Canon PowerShot S1 IS digital camera and it started taking photos with a purplish tone. Then it got worse. The photos had fine scratchy lines in them. I thought to myself ... I guess I'm going to have to get a new camera. I really liked my old one though! So I looked online for troubleshooting and found this web site . Apparently, Canon has an advisory out on my particular problem and they would fix it for free regardless of warranty status (click here for info). I called Canon and talked with a very kind customer service representative who took down my info. He told me that I would get a pre-paid UPS label via e-mail and to ship the camera to them so they could fix it. He also told me that Canon would stay in contact with me via e-mail regarding the status of my camera. I got the e-mail, shipped my camera to them, and received an e-mail on February 9th saying they received my camera. Now get this! I received another e-mail on February 10th stating they had repaired my camera and had shipped it via FedX. I got my camera back on February 12th and it works fine now! Talk about customer service! I thought that was exceptional! I will buy future cameras from Canon.

So, if you have a Canon digital camera that is on the fritz, you may want to check and see if your particular model is on the advisory list.

On a personal note, thank you to all who have inquired about me. I am doing fine (other than a slight cold). I just haven't been in a creative mood lately and my family life is keeping me extremely busy right now. Thanks to all who have given me ideas for a new kit. One of these days, I will be back!
