Good Morning, All!  As each week passes, my interior painting project is one step closer to being finished!  DH and I just spent the last two days doing the dining room which entailed moving some quite heavy iron and marble furniture and a couple set of bookshelves to boot!  We clean before painting and after painting, so I've spent quite a few hours on my hands and knees also.  I've developed a severe "crink" in my lower left spine that tells me that it's time for me to back off a bit.  Time to sit or lie still till the old back recovers.  It actually feels good to sit quietly in front of my computer.  Aahh!

Guess what!  I won the "Summer Defined" challenge I did last week at Jessica Sprague.  My layout titled "Summer Memories" is shown in my previous post.  I won a $5.00 gift certificate to the JS store!  Yeah for me!!  Doing the "happy dance"!!

Today I'm bringing you a FREEBIE QUICK PAGE made from the kit, "VINTAGE AMERICA", by Throwing Some Scraps Around - Designs by Jodi Watson.  I involved myself in the July Quick Page Challenge Game in the forum at Digi Scrap Station where we got the kit for free in return for designing one 8 x 8 inch QP to share in their gallery.  I just found this contest myself, and it appears that it goes on each month; so I'm already looking forward to participating again in August.  This is my kind of fun!  If you would like to collect all the QPs from this game, simply visit the forum or gallery at DSS where you'll find the direct download links for each QP.  The links will be available through the month of August for the pages created in the July game.  I made my QP in both the 8 x 8-inch and 12 x 12-inch sizes, 300 dpi, so you can take your choice.  My download in the DSS forum is the 8" size so it matches all the others there.  Here is the kit preview . . .

and here is a look at my Quick Page . . .


12 x 12-inch, HERE

Both sizes, HERE

I hope you like this page and will be able to use it in your scrapping.  This collection will be good to scrap up most any patriotic holiday or memory.

FYI:  I have previously been able to bring you free QPs courtesy of the monthly QP Contest at Cool Scraps Digital, but unfortunately Addie (the administrator of CSD) had to close down her forum, so that contest is no more.  I was saddened by that news recently as I had found that forum to be a very friendly, helpful, and well-run place to hang out and learn. 

That's all I have for you today.  I'll be back soon with more of my creations.  Meantime, check out the cards I made recently by clicking on the "CARDS" page I added toward the top of my blog.

Stay cool!  It's so hot here that my smoothie machine is my daily right arm!  I make fruity nutritious smoothies on a daily basis all summer long!
