Here Some Layouts

Hey Y'all,
Here are some layouts that I've done recently for the challenges at Sunshine Studio Scraps. Most were using the WonderGirls Island Splash kit, one is from a kit I created and one is a quickpage I made from Madame Wing's kit.

Photo Masks Freebie

Hey Y'all. Here is a passel of photo and mat masks; they can be used by any program that accepts png files and will 'clip' two layers together. The preview is clickable for a better view. Hope you like them.

Kim went back for the 5 week surgery checkup yesterday. She has never been out of pain since the tube was put in. Can you guess why? She is allergic to the stitches! Do you still believe that some people are not doomed from birth? Not me.

Starting Old?

Well, y'all, it's like this: I just saw the most amazing YouTube flick I have ever seen. It really gives me hope. Hope for all of us. Hope that our nation will get out of the financial pit we have found ourselves in. Hope that all the unemployed will discover a hidden or buried talent that will bring them good fortune. Hope that the lonely will find love and friendship. Hope that the ill will not only get well but blossom in God's light. Hope that the path I am taking is the right one and that it's not too late for me either! Please go HERE and get a little hope for yourselves!

Kim is feeling better the last few days. I am feeling better the last few days. I so want to make all my friends and family happy by doing something they will like and/or appreciate. I don't know what that is. I am me. I cannot seem to think beyond myself today. That hope is blooming in my heart for me. Selfish. Self-centered. Wanting. Waiting. Praying.

I have family I need to call. I have friends I need to visit. I'm in limbo for the present. Perhaps I will find out tomorrow, or the next day. If I do, I will share it with you. If it is bad news, I'll still share it. But I'm quite tired of bad news and think it high time for some good news. Be sure and watch the flick!

A Challenge

Hey Y'all,
Well, I did apply to DigiScrapAddicts for the contest but I haven't been confirmed yet. In the mean time I made a kit for a design challenge at Sunshine Studio Scraps (Check them out!). The password at 4Shared is sunshine.

This is a layout I made with the kit; everything is mine except for Patslash's Fairy Brushes (stars).

Kim had an allergic reaction to the meds the hospital doctors prescribed; pain and a rash. Poor kid, never gets a break. Her father, step-sister, 2 nieces, a nephew, and two aunts came down from Richmond to see her today. I think she really enjoyed seeing all of them.

It's 2:55am and my rump is sore from sitting here so long working on this kit! I'm going to bed!

Hey Y'all!

Well Kim has been in the hospital for a few days and got out yesterday afternoon. She is having blackouts that I think are seizures, and fell several times and hurt herself. The doctors have now put her on steroids that are suppose to help her retain fluid and keep her blood pressure up. Evidently the extra liter of fluid a day that the doctors in Winston Salem told her to consume just wasn't enough. Poor thing fell when she was in the bathroom and hit her jaw, chin, and ribs; xrays and ultrasounds showed no broken bones. She gets so beat up but nothing ever shows because her circulation is so bad that she doesn't bruise!

Well, I have to tell you about something that I want to do so that maybe I'll do it if I post about it. KWIM? DigiScrapAddicts is having a designer contest called 'So You Think You Can Design?' It seems that there are hundreds of entries and this is their second year of hosting the contest. The grand prize is a 3 month guest designer spot at Scrap Orchard Designs! Whoo! I'd really like to sell some of my 'stuff' since everyone around here have lost their jobs and some income would certainly help out! A few of you have suggested that I am good enough, but AM I? I have to include some previews of items I have designed with the application so I thought of the Christmas Around The World Kit and the last one I did, Spring Forward. Wish me luck, please! Designing is truly what I love to do, much more than digi scrapping. When Kim is really bad I find that if I just start designing something that I can get my mind calmed down enough to focus on something else!

I have to get started on tonight's dinner.

Hey Y'all,

Hope you are having a wonderful Easter Holiday with your friends and family.

I forgot to post the link to Media Fire for the Easter Freebie Kit. It is now in the previous post!


PS: Kim was not doing too well week before last. She spent a few days with me for some 'mommy love.' Went back home and once again isn't doing too well. She has had a few good days but has begun vomiting again. When she went to Wake Forest University on the 8th for a post surgery checkup, she had gained a few ounces which is a very good thing!
