First I want to wish all my visitors from the US ~Happy Thanksgiving~ and I hope you and your families have a great holiday.

Well, we have been busy tonight. We did some recoloring, we did a seamless pattern and we made a tag.
Hope you like this mini-kit.

@Zara, I know what you mean, I also used it for a horse/cowboy theme layout, the rest will be on my blog tomorrow or the day after.

One more thing, please,please, pretty please leave some comments! More comments means more freebies.

Quick Page +

First message for Jan J
Sorry no plans to cross the ocean, lol, but you can always join a forum like DSO. Its a great forum and very helpfull or online tutorials, there are many of those on the www. Good luck and keep on trying....

Today you can download another QP + I made of a layout featuring ~My Guys~ (DH and sons)
The frame might look familiar and you're right, I used the 3 ring frame for Amanda aswell, but instead of the flowers I used stars on this one. In the zip you'll find background, border, frames, keycord and tag. Hope you find it usefull, enjoy and happy scrapping.

I got another award. This one was given to me by Sam. Thank you so much Sam for this honour.

The rules for this award are simple. I need to tell you seven things that I love, and then pass the award on to seven other blogs.
Last week I got the same award and the seven things I love haven't changed, lol.
The seven blogs will have to wait until I can find some time to bloghop again.
Next on the agenda:
Makeyesup send me an email about things going on, at 4 shared(illegal files) and I am so grateful for those emails and the fact that 4 shared deletes the files so quickly.
Just for the record, here's a part of their text:

4shared strives against spread of illegal content and will cooperate with law enforcement, owners of copyrighted products, and third parties in order to remove inappropriate files from 4shared site.
We will take steps to ban the publisher from uploading these files to 4shared service in the future.

Thats it for today. :)

Amanda's Scrapbook

Hi all,
Hope you all had a great weekend, mine was very "scrappy" lol, my friend Amanda was here to learn all about digital scrapbooking, she saw my designs and had been surfing digiscap blogs and she wants to make her own layouts. She didn't know how to start, so she came over and we worked on some papers and elements together (she choose her favorite colors, I made the elements and papers)
Todays freebie, some of the materials we worked with, I named it Amanda part 1, because there will be more... :)

You all know about the great challenges at DSO, don't you, if not just click on the name...Well the posting bonus for the color challenge this month has a christmas theme, on other blogs you also find a lot of christmas sets, in stores its christmas, so I'm really getting in the Christmas spirit. Normally my christmas is pretty traditional, red, green and gold, but I wanted to try the DSO november colors to see what I could come up with.

This is it ~Christmas Star~, a mini-kit (with more to come)... Hope you like it, happy scrapping.Christmas Star
