Good Morning!  Once again I'm in a rush, so I'll keep this post very short.  I have too many things on my list to accomplish today.  Hubby is off with me, and we are going to "move mountains"!  LOL!

I wanted to pop in here and give you my May FREE Quick Page which I designed as part of my participation in the monthly quick page challenge over at Ivy Scraps.  This month we used a kit called "LIFT OFF" by Sweet Dreamer Designs.  The kit has all kinds of space elements in it, and I'm sorry I don't have a preview of it to show you.  But, here is a layout I made with only a few of the elements included . . .

Those are two of my grandchildren heading out to their respective baseball games.  They are brother and sister and are very competitive on their different teams.
My FREE QUICK PAGE comes to you as a 12x12 page in png format ready for you to insert your own photo and add your own journaling.  Of course, you can scale it down to an 8 x 8-inch page in your program if that's what you prefer to work with.  Hope you like!

Leave me some love in the comment section if you visit here and download my goodies.  Also, take a tour of my other pages with the "page tabs" at the top of this home page.  You'll find some good recipes of mine that I add here and there, some other layouts I've done, and occasional knitting and crochet patterns I've been working on.  Enjoy!
I'll be back again before this month is over since I have a few more things I'm working on and want to give you.  Drop in again soon! 
I'm off to start today's chore list!

Greetings, Peeps!  Hope you're having a marvelous May!  Mine has been super busy with birthday celebrations, remembering Mother's Day, doing my regular job, and working a weekend festival we have annually here at the beach; the Blue Crab Festival.  It was a major success this year with lots of vendors, artisans, food, and huge crowds of lookers/buyers!  I haven't personally seen the festival that good since 2008 as the national ecomony was taking a nose-dive.  Maybe things are beginning to mend, or else folks just need fun for mental therapy.  This area has been buzzing with the sound of motorcycles as we have an annual Harley Davidson rally here every May followed by a Ninja bike week over the Memorial Day holiday.  We get so used to that sound that it will seem quiet when they all depart the beach.

I didn't want this month to get away from me without sharing a special word art I designed as part of my participation in the May Color Challenge over at Ivy Scraps.  We use the pre-selected colors chosen by the challenge host to make a layout, mini kit, QP, paper or element of some kind to share with others.  I was inspired by the soft colors to try to design a word art for Mother's Day, so I hope you still have some photos to scrap of your Mother's Day this year.  My download will contain a transparent png file to use on whatever background you choose.  Hope you like this.  Here is a preview,


Leave me some love if you download so I stay inspired to share my creations with you!  I'm keeping this post short but plan to be back before this month is gone to share a few other goodies with you.  Check back tomorrow for a free Quick Page coming at you!
