Hello and Happy Fall everyone!  Sorry that my posts are so radically intermittent right now, but I've been stomping around in the guts of my computer for way over a month now.  I believe I may have solved half of my working problems, but there are a few things still not right, and it's wearing on my last nerve!  I'm running Vista Home Premium on a great PC desktop tower, but it's getting pretty old now and no amount of sweet talk is fixing the glitches that have cropped up in the Vista operating system.  I'd really love to upgrade it to Windows 7 but fear I've missed that opportunity for lack of funds at the appropriate time.  I shall keep limping along on this one, dealing with the problems, until my "ship comes in".  LOL!  I'm a believer that those "ships" do dock once in awhile!  We just have to be patient in the meantime.

So sorry that I've fallen behind with my 2013 calendar grids for you.  Catching those up will be next on my list!

Today I have a Fall Quick Page freebie for you made from my participation in the monthly QP contest game over at Digi Scrap Station.  This month we used the kit, RICH EARTH, by Scrappy Cats (preview below).  I'm offering my QP in both the 8-inch and 12-inch size png file at 300 dpi.  Just slip your photo behind it, add some journaling if you like, and you're done! 

Here is my Quick Page . . .


8-inch size, HERE or HERE

12-inch size, HERE or HERE

Hope you can use this in your digi-scrapping this fall.  Remember, if you would like to collect the other Quick Pages from the rest of the contestants, just visit the September QP Game forum thread over at Digi Scrap Station.  You'll find direct download links posted for each page in that forum thread.  All should be in the 8-inch size, but lots of us offer the 12-inch size as well on our blogs.

I'm also having trouble getting my photos to upload into blogger.  Anybody have a solution for that one?  The first one seems to slip in easily, then it doesn't want to upload anymore for me!!  :-(  Frowny face!! 

I will keep working on this until I have this latest blogger myster solved.  I'm a die-hard!

Meantime, keep on scrapping!

Hope to be back soon with more goodies!

Hi Everybody!  I'm running behind as usual, but this time it's due to my having extreme computer "issues" during the month of August!  UGH!  I am still working on them and definitely not fully recovered as yet.  I tend to think of myself as computer knowledgeable, but certainly not when it comes to repair of windows.  I am having to dig so deep and read, read, read.  I'm totally exhausted and getting very burned out on it.  At this point, I am just hopeful as I write this that I will be able to get it posted.  I am experiencing severe freeze-ups in Internet Explorer 9 on Windows Vista Home Premium, and screen freeze-ups when working offline in just regular Windows Explorer.  This computer has given me excellent service until about a month ago, so I am desperately trying to figure out the root cause of this.  I am currently having to do hard reboots to keep going for awhile.  I have had this baby since about 2006 or 2007, but I am fearful that our future time together is limited.

I hope to catch up and post my 2013 August and September calendar grid templates in the next few days.

I have missed getting my August Quick Page made and posted for the contest at Ivy Scraps unless they will let me post it late due to these computer problems.

The good news is that today I am bringing you my August Quick Page freebie for the Quick Page Game at Digi Scrap Station titled "Too Cool For School", using that kit by Heavenly Scraps.  If you would like to collect a nice QP album of 8-inch pages, be sure to visit the forum thread for direct download links from all the contestants which will be available for at least the next 30 days.  I am offering my page in both the 8-inch and the 12-inch png formats, and the download links are below.  Here is the kit preview . . .

and here is my Quick Page preview . . .

Okay folks, you wouldn't believe what I just had to go through to get that second image to show up!  Whew!

I hope you can use my QP in your digital scrapbooking!  I won't try to test my luck and make this post too long.  I will try to post again soon with more freebies, so do check back.  Wish me luck with my computer repairs!
