Here's a link to another great digi-scrapper that I enjoy immensely and follow as often as she posts:
She lives in the United Kingdom, is a great story teller, and has a lovely sense of humor! Not to mention she is a great scrapbook kit and template designer! I can tell she is one busy lady! Go check her out! She offers a ton of freebies!
From her site tonight I snagged a great Quick Page designed by Linda's Lot and worked it up quickly with a bit of politcal humor and the great beach sand art that gone on here this year! The Republicans were lucky because our weather held off raining and the sand artists were able to get their display designed and built to its completion. I think it rained too hard here during the Democrat's debate a few weeks later this spring. Weather at the coast is always very unpredictable!
My layout using Linda's Summer Bay Quick Page:
This QP is part of a huge kit the CT members at Cens Loft have put together and you can gather it up and have a great time with it! It's been a great summer project by them, and I for one am grateful to have all of it to work with! Thanks gals!!
Tropical Storm Fay is working her way north/northwest across Florida, and I'm hoping we won't see much out of her by the time she PASSES BY my area! Notice my positive thinking!
Well, I'm off again to do a little digi-scrapping tonight! I'm going to try my hand at offering some freebies myself in the next few days, so stay tuned. I have to figure out upload files to 4shared so you can download them.
Take care out there, and wear a smile!

I will start by giving you Teri Mayo at her blog http://teristhingomyjigs.blogspot.com/2008_08_01_archive.html
She says she is relatively new at all this too, but I don't believe a word of it! She's designing like wild, she's great at it, and it's all there for you to collect and have fun with for free! Hear me now, believe me later (after you take a look for yourself)! As a newbie to all this myself, she has inspired me immensely and I have been spurred by her creative genius to enter two template challenges, one in July and one this month, called "Starbucks Tumbler Template Challenge" which can be found, hopefully monthly, at another great site where addicts like us post our work and gather more freebies and such at DigiScrapDepot.
Below are my challenge layouts for July and August, and if I can do this, anybody can. All you need is an ounce of slight desire!
My July layout:
Well people, all I can tell you is that this is just too much fun! At the same time I'm having so much fun I am probably creating this year's Christmas gifts ahead of schedule. All I need do to prep this gift is print these out on photo paper, cut out the large curved design (the August layout will loose that water background), roll into a tube shape and insert into the empty tall Starbucks Tumbler and VIOLA! I have unique gifts ready for more than a few folks on my Christmas list! Gotta be happy about that this early!!
I'm definitely a night owl, but saying tootles here to go and create for awhile before the zzz's take over! Chow!
