Hello my peeps!  Spring brings warm weather very early on here at the beach, often as early as mid February.  Our early warm weather combined with spring breaks in schools and colleges allows for the flow of personal company to begin in my home during the month of March, and I've been so busy I'm just coming up for air.  I apologize for the length of time between my posts and freebies lately.  My very dear elderly parents were here for Easter this year which was such a family treat.  My 88 yr. old dad got to take in a Pelicans baseball game with his granddaughter and great-granchildren while here, so what a treat for him!  To prove how small the world really is, the nice couple sitting next to him struck up conversation and were from a small city we know very well only 30 miles from where my folks live up north.  They had lots to talk about in common, the weather was perfect, and the Pelicans won the game!  Yeah - a great day for Dad!

Our local annual Blue Crab Festival is in progress this weekend along with a Harley Davidson Spring Bike Rally, and our local seams are bursting.  We took in an early morning soccer game and then headed for the festival which is full of a multitude of yummy food and wine vendors as well as arts & craft vendors from near and far.  Music, entertainment, tantilizing food scents, and the buzz of happy people fills the air for the entire weekend along our Intercoastal Waterway front where there is always a gentle breeze blowing to cool you down some from the heat.  Everyone comes out to feed and browse around for the entire weekend.  You've never seen so many happy people in one place!  It's a sight; a good one!

Okay, but I've popped back on here to tell you about the May Quick Page Contest over at Cool Scraps Digital.  If you're a digi-scrapper with a blog, you'll want to hop over to check this out in the forum there.  The contest has it's own thread in the forum, you'll see it.  You need to register in the forum if you haven't been there before, especially if you think you may want to participate in this contest.  Sign-ups to participate started on May 14th and run through May 18th.  The kit to work from is FREE and will be given to you on May 18th.  You simply design one 12 x 12 inch Quick page at 300 dpi and post it to their gallery with a download link.  You'll be able to collect all the Quick Pages as the competition progresses and even after it is over.  Last month was totally awesome!  This month's kit is "FLORAL SURPRISE" designed by "Created by Jill".  Have a look . . .

So cool, right?  How could anyone not want to get involved?  This is such a wonderful contest, it's so fun to make a Quick Page, the kit is free, and you have a chance at some great prizes too!  Head on over there and check it out for yourself!  I'm in, so I'll be back soon to show you my own Quick Page with this kit.

Alrighty then, that should hold you for a few minutes if you're looking for something free and fun to do.  I promise to get back on my own blogging schedule with plenty of my own freebies to come your way very soon.  I just need to sit for awhile to get them organized, the hardest part of anything we do . . . the organization end of things! 

Hope you're having a wonderful weekend and enjoying some great weather where you live!  Be back soon!  Until then, Happy Scrapping!
