Here is is, Monday again! Seems that day of the week rolls around faster than the other six!  I've been busy lately stepping up the "Mimi" roll by attending my grandchildrens' end of school award ceremonies, graduations, and all their sports championship games.  Whew!  I'm pooped from being on the run so much, especially in the heat we've been having already.  Our temperatures have already soared to a few degrees past 100 F., and it's still what I would call early in our heat season here.  If it's any indicator of what's to come across the rest of this summer, we are in for it!  Thank goodness for the ocean and a community pool just steps from my front door!!  Anyway, all the events I've taken in recently have provided me with excellent photo opportunities, so I've built up a nice stash of pics to scrap in the coming months.  Check out my "layouts page" with the tabs at the top of this blog to browse through my latest scrapped pages.  I'm in the process of attempting to bring that page up-to-date.  Seems there is never enough time in the days to entirely complete the lists I have going.  LOL!

I worked a little on designing yesterday, and the result of that is a good size FREEBIE for you!  I made frames from a stash of my own textured papers that are dear to me, so I hope you like and can use these in your scrapping.  There are 17 frames in different colors.  These are png files at 300 dpi, easily resized larger or smaller to suit your needs.  I had to break the the set into three zip files since I'm using my free account at Box.net to bring you the downloads without waiting or hassle on your end.  So be sure to download all three links below!  Here's the preview . . .





I'm keeping this short and sweet for now as I have much else to do for others right now, not to mention that list I have going.  At the moment I'm dog sitting with three extra fur babies that belong to my DD while she's on a well-deserved fun excursion for a few days with her family.  This means there are a total of 5 canines in my house currently, that's 20 little legs running around!  I have to be careful I don't trip over them myself!  Seems all we get done is eating, drinking, and going outside for bladder relief!  In case you're curious, it's three full-blood Yorkies, one Yorkie-Maltese cross, and one terrior/hound mix.  Oh my, I should try to snap some pics of them so you can see the madness!  LOL!  My DD is a local all-breed canine groomer and also handles boarding which is quite popular in this area when vacationers bring their pets to the beach and not all hotels allow them in.  Her facility is handy to the beach, and she allows folks to check their pets in and out daily during their stay so they can romp on the beach together.  Most people seem to prefer having their pets near them while they vacation rather than leaving them boarded in their hometown.  At any rate, seems we always have plenty of fur babies around. 

If not out already, most schools will turn the children loose for the summer this week.  I hope you have plans for a wonderful summer ahead.  Have a great week! 

I'll be back soon with more goodies for you.  I want to get back on giving you some regular template freebies.  I love designing templates, and I have a nice stash ready to throw at you, so stay tuned in here!  PSE10 should make its debut very soon.  Keep an eye out at your local Costco for a great deal on it when it arrives on the shelves!  Can't wait to see what's new in it!  Just like a kid at Christmas!

Back soon!  TOOTLES!

Thanks for the freebie. Just have to say that I LOVE Yorkies!! I had one for 11 1/2 years and he followed me everywhere. He was my constant companion. When I sat down he was curled up at my feet. He died very suddenly from a disease that he picked up from the local skunks (likely)a year ago on Sept 23. I miss him so much...and my feet were cold last winter. lol I think Yorkies are great dogs and so very cute. Thanks for sharing about your menagerie. Bet you were glad to see 3 of them go - sort of. Probably mixed feelings. I'm rambling. Sorry. I just found your blog and I love it. Can't wait to have time to download your other freebies. Have yourself a wonderful week. :)
