BURR, FOLKS!!  I hope wherever you are, that you're warm and happy!  It's been sleeting, icy, and snowy here at my southern beach with temps around 20 degrees.  Black ice has been a problem, the kids have been out of school for 3 days now to stay safe.  By noon today we should start thawing out if the predictions are correct.  Got some snowy pictures of landscapes and my grandkids in winter garb; mittens, toboggans, and such!  It's a real rare thing here! 

My two grandsons had birthdays on the 25th and 30th this month.  They are 8 and 12 respectively now.  Such a joy to be here and be close to enjoy them as I get to do!  They are so sweet and perfect clowns for my photos, as well as my only granddaughter.  Most of my pics are slightly blurry because these kids are in constant motion.  The don't know the meaning of "being still" for a second or two.  I just have to keep snapping until I get a good one eventually.

Today I have completed my Quick Page Freebie for my monthly entry for Digi Scrap Station.  We got to use a kit called "JANUARY MOODS" by The Brown Owl.  I made an 8-inch size for the game and also a 12-inch size for those of you who like that size.  These are png format at 300 dpi for print quality.  Here one of the kit previews . . .

and here is the Quick Page I made for the game and for you . . .
8-inch size:  HERE or HERE
12-inch size:  HERE or HERE
Visit the January 2014 Quick Page Collection Game forum thread at Digi Scraps Station to find the free download links for all the page made this month.  There are always such pretty pages!
Below are a couple of pages I just finished of our current weather, some in my neighborhood, at my grandchildren's home, and in my downtown area.  These were made with the use of a template called Case File 72 I picked up free at Scrap Art Studio just this week.  They come out on Mondays and are free through Friday each week, then are sold for a cancer charity after that.  I simply reversed the template horizontally, moved a couple of the elements, and then took out the center post in the two upper frames to expose the pictures a little better.  Super quick scrapping with the only addition being a background paper from the January Moods Kit.  I did a small amount of journaling on each picture in real tiny font as I wanted to remember that my son-in-law is wearing the scarf I knitted for him two Christmases ago finally. 

Below is the recipe card I made for my entry in the Recipe Card Challenge hosted by Let Me Scrapbook over at Digital Scrapbooking Studio for the month of January.  The theme was "healthy" recipes, and I fell in love with the little monkeys in the starter kit!  The second image is a blank I included for the other participants to have.

These are web size images, but the ones we submit for the challenge are print quality size, and all participants receive them at the end of the month.  Wow!  The challenge was huge this month!  Guess I'm not the only one who likes monkeys!

That concludes my scrapping for the moment.  I hope to be back soon with something special for February, so do stay tuned in and stop back by.  Leave a little love if you downloaded my goodies so I know you were around.  Your presence helps to spur creativity.
