Good Morning, All!  Keeping my two or three day old promise, I'm here bright and early to bestow yet another FREEBIE on y'all.  But first . . .

As the month of May comes to a close, it's nice to reflect by photos just what went by in a fast blur, right?  It just so happened that this past Friday's episode (5-25-12, which you can buy separately still) of PhotoShop Friday 2012 over at Jessica Spague provided me the perfect template to document just that, and I got 'er done!  I went over-board and filled up all the blocks with photos which, of course, you don't have to do; but I had taken a lot this month, so why not?  I'm so enthused with this template and background paper which is marked off with the little squares that I'm vowing now to make one of these layouts for each month for at least a year!  It's kind of nice to see what went on during the month at one glance.  Here's my layout . . .

The flowers bloomed, I made lots of food, we gathered gourds for crafting, we played together, I received Mother's Day gifts, saw two of my grandbabes in their school's musical, crocheted a baby afghan for my new neice, celebrated birthdays for my DH and DD, looked at a house for sale, planted some roses, watched gymnastics, and played word games!  Whew!  Busy month, quick month!  Cool page!  Maybe my next one won't be so full and I'll be able to show you one with a few blocks empty or containing some pretty digital papers.  The light tan "inset paper" above is provided with the template, along with all the elements you see.  You just add your text for month and date, and take off with your photos.  I made a few labels and wrote on a few of my photos, but this is so small you probably may not be able to see that here.  If I print this at 8 x 8 inches or 12 x 12 inches, it will be lovely!  Ok, just wanted to share!

And here is one of my Memorial Day Tribute pages for this year . . .

The blue paper, center USA element, the "always" and the "remember" letter block graphics, and the frames are from K. Pertiet at Designer Digitals; 4 red papers were used from Merry Christmas Kit by Echo Park of Jessica Sprague, and Design House Digital's "All American Alpha" is by Karen Funk.  That's my Dad on the left when he was an Air Force Flight Instructor during WWII, and my brother on the right who is career Army.  It was such a pleasure to construct this page yesterday.

Alrighty then, time for your FREEBIE.  Awhile back I played wild and free in my PSE and came up with a bunch of sticker designs, so I'm sharing a few.  Below is a pack of 8 pngs at 300 dpi.  You can easily size them larger or smaller, add shadows, and so on.  I've called these "Sticker Art_Set 1" since it's a varied mix.  Hope you can enjoy and use.  Leave me some love if you download and let me know if you have a favorite.  Here's the preview . . .


Alas, that's it from me today.  My DH is off for two days, and I know he'll keep me hopping most of the time.  Enjoy the sun and heat.  We are forecasted rain to arrive, but they've missed it so far!  LOL!
