'fraidy cat...'fraidy cat....'fraidy cat freebie :)

:) can you guess what my newest li'l kit is called?!
lol I am having so much fun working over at OAKS and a very dear friend of mine is now with me over there!!!!! a lot of you may remember her from SBB (angelarelle), or from DID...
Cherie Shields is now an OAKS gal!!!! I am so excited :)
Cherie has also been kind of mentoring me on how to promote myself and what people like and don't like, what to do and what not to do, and just being there for me in general :)
She used my new releases to make a frightfully fantastic Desktop Calendar for me to share here (ok i have to admit, i have VERY talented friends who must love me b/c they keep doing all this stuff for me lol)
I have yet to make many frames, so Cherie used one of her frames from her "Simply Frame Me" element pack :)!!! She has some gorgeous frames in that pack ;)
Click on the preview to download the free desktop calendar!


this is what I did with the calendar so that I can print it off for my
Mother-in-Law to keep on her desk at work (her LITERAL desktop!)...
This size prints beautifully (it is the same as an 8x10)....

Here is my 'fraidy Cat li'l kit :)
Sure to make your Halloween layouts an absolute SCREAM! with spiders and cats and bold creepy colors, how can you go wrong snagging up this kit?! If you only want the papers, i have them available separately; if you only want the elements, you can buy them separately too, but you save


Then there is my Hallow-teen Paper Pack...it is bright enough to show off your littlest monsters, yet dark enough to make emo seem happy :) This selection of ghoulishly delightful papers to bring your Halloween layouts to life. Included are 7 terrifyingly textured, frightfully fantastic papers with names like dirty pumpkin, hallowteen moon, somethin dirty, and scaredy stripes.....how could even the coldest hearted witch resist?!
All petrifying papers are 12x12 inches (3600 x 3600 pixels) and saved at 300 dpi for hauntingly high quality...
Drop shadows are for preview purposes only...its gives the ghosts a place to hide....;)



ok this time i spared you by giving you the freebie before i blog my life lol
Just a little update here....

Elijah seems to be doing really well with the positive reinforcement :)... He pushes it sometimes by trying to get away with more than he can, but we just keep being firm with consequences for bad behavior and really pushing the positives....

Tink is pee-pee potty trained now!!! woot!!! now if we could just figure out the other :(....she is talking more clearly every day and is getting so tall!

Lane got his school pictures back and for the first time EVER he had a sincere smile in them!!! even though i told him he didn't have to smile (when he fakes it, it ruins the pic completely)....he is such a good kid....

Mike and I had all Friday evening and all day Saturday to ourselves :D...my sis took all 3 kids for over 24 hours!!!! We went to eat at a restaurant we have never tried (it was not all that great, but at least it was not Taco Bell or a buffet ;) ), came home and watched Apocalypto (FAB movie...it is all subtitled, but it is really good...very intense so not for the whole family, but beautifully done and very good)...then we slept until 11 a.m.....yes ELEVEN, as in almost noon lol....it was heavenly :)...we just puttered around the house for a couple hours, then went to the Y to work out together (mike had to almost guilt me into it b/c i had a minor panic attack thinking about it)...
I did 15 min on the eliptical (sp?), and 20 min on the treadmill....then i did stretches and side crunches....i really have to get back in shape....
then we went to my mom's and my sister's (they live across the street from each other lol) and ended up only bringing one of our 3 kids home with us lol....it was a really nice weekend....

We went to bed kinda late (12:30 or so), and were awoken to the sound of tink getting sick, so we were up all night (until about 8 this a.m.) taking care of her, thank God she seems to be feeling better now, still has a fever but no bodily fluids coming out of anywhere.....ew...

soooooooooooo now here i am blogging while she lays on the bed and daddy has went to get the boys :D....
hope you all have a great afternoon/evening/morning (whatever time of day it is in your part of the world ;) )
Thought for the day..."Why should God give us what we want, when we can't even be thankful for what we already have?".....makes ya think, huh?

CONGRATULATIONS ON THE GORGEOUS KIT AND THE GORGEOUS PAPERS! Love them both and have had a ball scrapping them! I have to agree Cherie rocks, it is so exciting that you are both in the same store - mmm a collab maybe??? that would be a dream come true. Thanks so much for the desktop, it gorgeous - i can just imagine what a collab would be like from the two of you. Simply Superb.

Glad to hear that wee Tink is Tinkle Trained - thats fab news! And ooh a smile in a school pic, so who was she in the background??? Elijah will come right just be patient and keep up the positive work! Easier said than done. Whats an evening to yourself?? Far out I couldnt imagine that! LOL Anyhow Thinking of you and being thankful for what I have ((HUGS))

You are de bomb! I love your new kit! YOu know I am on my way over there to get it right now!
My thoughts- I was reading a blog today and a mom was talking about how her daughter didn't understand how important all these medical test were that she was going to have to go through. I think that we are the same way. God gives us these great opportunities, but often we are side tracked and too wrapped up in our world to see the big picture.
