I'm back as hoped with a new QUICK PAGE FREEBIE for you all. It's my contribution to the monthly QP contest held at Cool Scraps Digital. This month we got to work with the awesome kit by Cocotounette called "Oh My!".  It has some lovely colors in it. My QP is a 12 x 12", 300 dpi page but could easily be resized down to an 8x8 if desired. This is a png file, so it will work in different programs.  If you would like to collect all the pages for a matching album, just check into the Quick Page Contest thread in the forum at Cool Scraps Digital, or check out the Quick Page Contest Gallery there.  Each contestant has direct download links posted so you can easily pick up their page to add to your collection.  This contest is always awesome and showcases so much talent by various digital scrapping folks!  Here is a preview of the "Oh My!" kit and the QP I made with it . . .

And here is a closer look at my Quick Page . . .


I'm providing two different download sites for your convenience and so this will always be available when you are visiting my blog.  I hope you enjoy this page and can use it in your scrapping needs!  It's always a fun contest, so think about getting involved over at CSD.

We had my little grandson's 6th birthday party Wed. evening, cake and ice cream and opening of his gifts at an oceanfront pub where there is a huge arcade for all the kids to play in indoors while the adults snacked on a flavorful feast of wings since it was $0.35 wing night!  I tried two different kinds and ended up loving the one called "Golden" and need now to figure out what's in the grilling sauce so I can make it at home!  Mason had a blast playing with his friends and opening some very cool presents.  I took a ton of pictures as usual.  He has always loved birthdays, both his own and attending others.  He loves to sing the birthday son, taste the icing on the cake with his finger, make a wish, blow out candles, and rip into gifts.  This little guy is reading like a wizard for his age, and he does take time to open and read each birthday card before he tears into that gift; good training by his daddy there!  I made it through the party with my emotions intact but had my moments of tears after I returned home pondering how much I missed his mommy being there to see him turn six.  She would be so proud of her son.  Time does fly by, it's true.  But losing her still seems like yesterday and is still so fresh for me though a little over three years has passed.  I struggle, but I am making it, and I do make myself get through everything.

I'm going to jump off here now and get busy with household chores, but I will return soon with more free templates for you and some really neat word art coming up in February!  Please drop back by often to see what's new in my world of digital design attempts.  I'm also going to show you what I've worked on so far in my ongoing Digital Art Journaling class.  I only wish I had more free time to devote to that.  It's so enjoyable and so different.  Oh well, that is what we like about self-paced classes, right?  You can work on them anytime when you can spare the time!

Have a great day, and I'll chat again soon!
