Morning Peeps!  It's Sunday, but I still have to work a 4-hour shift this afternoon, and it's pooring rain in my neck of the woods; a very glooming type day.  I'm wondering if we will have any customers willing to brave the wetness.  I'm always amazed by people's determination to "SHOP"!

To update my last post, I got sick days after my hubby came down with whatever viral thing he drug home from work.  So, it wasn't food poisoning that made him so sick.  Turned out to be some type of "super-bug" after all.  Whew, I haven't been that sick in years!  I laid about for at least 4 days doing nothing but trying to keep the fluids down.  Yuck!

I'm well now and back up on my feet running.  Hate losing time like that. 

Today I have a pre-Easter FREEBIE Quick Page for you.  I participated in the monthly QP challenge over in the forum at Ivy Scraps.  This month we got to play with with the cute kit, "Hip Hop Time" by Mizfit Mania which is available in the Ivy Scraps shop.  You can collect all the Quick Pages for free by visiting their forum under the March Quick Page Contest thread.  All the participants will get their free pages posted with direct download links there by the end of this month.  You can also visit the Quick Page Contest Gallery at Ivy Scraps to view what's available as the month progresses.  Here is a preview of the kit we all used . . .

and here's a more detailed look at all the papers included in this kit,

and here is a look at the QP I designed from this kit . . .

My Quick Page is a 12-inch size png file at 300 dpi, ready to slip your photos underneath.


Working full time again is definitely cutting into my designing and blogging time.  I'm so tired at night that I don't seem to get much else done other than consuming whatever for dinner on the late side and chatting with the hubby a little.  But alas, it's not forever.  I can vaguely see a light at the end of my work tunnel.  When I get to that light, I will have more time for the things I like to do.

Here's a bit of inspiration - I scrapped this page from a great template by Lindsay Jane which is free at Gotta Pixel under the March challenges in the forum.  I had gotton a new kitchen appliance to make delicious Belgian waffles, and was so excited using it the first time that I took some photos.  I had gotten my Dad one of these for Christmas, and he loves using it himself, so I finally got myself one off Amazon.  It works like a charm in only minutes.  It's a Flip Belgian Waffle Maker by Hamilton Beach, and I even ordered the malted waffle mix when I ordered the waffle maker.  Yumo!  Here's the page I made of my happy meal . . .

I used a kit from Gotta Pixel called "Citrus Crush" by Twin Mom Scraps for this page.  Here's a look at the free challenge template you can still pick up during the month of March by Lindsay Jane under the Tempting Templates thread in the forum under March Challenges . . .

Very cute, right?!  I love using templates, one of my favorite ways to digi-scrap! 

Okay, gotta jump off here and get ready for the old work shift for today!  Hope I get back here soon.  I plan to get my free April 2013 calendar template posted here in the next few days, plus I still need to load my Etsy store.  Still haven't had time to focus on that.  Rats!

You all take care and have a great week ahead!
