The Last Midnight Snow Quickpage Freebie

We've come to the end of our freebie quickpages for Midnight Snow. Today's last quickpage is from Jessica. I want to thank her again for sharing these pages. She did such a great job. And a big thanks to all my CT members that contributed pages as well. They have all be super!

You can grab the quickpage here.

I hope to have a great little mini kit for you tomorrow that will coordinate with items in my grab bag. I'll give you more details tomorrow!

Today's Quickpage Freebie!

Look at me! I have the quickpage up first thing today. For whatever reason I woke up early, so I'm posting now while I have the chance. Tonight I have to put my finishing touches on my grab bags for Divine's grab bag weekend. They're always so much fun to make. I'll post all the details on Friday, so you can stop by and pick them up.

I'm also pretty excited because I have this big box of family photos sitting on my dining room table. My aunt is moving to Arizona this spring, so I'm borrowing her photos before she goes and scanning them all. She has ones I've never seen before of my grandmother and her siblings as toddlers with my great grandparents. I'm so glad to have them. They're going to be fun to scrap one of these days. Now if I could just get some more photos of my father's side of the family we'd be well on our way to a great heritage album. I have to keep working on that one.

Today's freebie is made again by Jessica.

Quickpage Freebie!!! And a thank you.

I just wanted to thank everyone who sent well wishes to Gianni. He is doing so well. We went back to the dr. today. She said his chest is still rattling, but he's doing very, very well. His oxygen levels or whatever that is that they test were at 98% which is even better than when he left the hospital. I'm so blessed!

Today's quickpage is from Jessica. It's a direct link today because 4shared what giving me headaches. Here's a preview...

New quickpage freebie finally! New products. New Bargain Bin

Sorry to fall off the grid since Saturday. Our two and a half year old was admitted to the hospital on Sunday with pneumonia and we didn't get back home until last night. It's been a long few days. The only other time I've been this tired was those first few days after our son was born. It's going to take a few days to catch up.

Thankfully, Gianni is doing well. I'm going to try and get him to eat a little more today. No toddler should be subjected to a clear or full liquid diet. He doesn't eat soup (w/o noodles at least) or cream of wheat on a good day.

Then despite it being clearly marked on his files to dietary that he has dairy and egg allergies, they sent him cream of tomato soup. I didn't realize and tried to get him to eat some b/c the dr. on call that day wouldn't let him go home b/c he hadn't eaten. Take goodnees Gianni refused to eat it and only got some on his face. He still needed antihistamines to get rid of the hives. Thank goodness it wasn't more than that! Can you say lawsuit!

Thankfully he was fine and the dr. that was on call the day he was admitted was on call yesterday and let us go home. She was much more understanding about the diet and why he wasn't eating. I guess I have to find out how to complain about the dietary department from our peds dr. tomorrow at Gianni's follow-up appointment. There should be better alternatives for children and adults with allergies. You can't substitute lactaid for a child with milk allergies. It's lactose free but not milk protein free. DUH!!!! Okay, I'm done ranting.

Today's quickpage comes again thanks to Jessica. Here's a preview!

Here's a look at two new products at Karla's Kaleidoscope Designs. They're specially priced right now so check them out!

Day 3 of Midnight Snow Freebie Quickpages

I'm a little late posting this today. It's been a hectic week. We're giving state exams this week to our 3-5 graders, so my week has looked a little different than normal. We also began our second round of the DIBELS for our K kids, so I've basically be doing assessments all day. I pretty much feel like I need to veg after repeating the same directions about 20 different times or the course of a day.

Today's quickpage comes to us from my CT member, Linda. I know you're really going to enjoy it! Here's a preview...

I frequently use her templates for personal and professional layouts.

Here's a layout I did this weekend using Rose's new About a Boy Kit.

You can find Rose's great templates and kits at K-Joi, Scrappers Zone, and Busy Bee Scrappers.

I've been trying to write down five things I'm thankful for each day in 2008. So far I haven't done very Well, not so bad actually. I did 1/1 and I thought about 1/2 just didn't write anything down yet.

Let's see five things I thought of for 1/2:

1. Being able to go back to a great job.
2. Coming home to my favorite little man after a day at work.
3. Mac and cheese.
4. My new flannel comforter.
5. The funny things my toddler says that always make me laugh.

Today's five are...
1. Tomorrow's weather forecast is warmer!
2. Creativity
3. My mom who is an awesome Grandma!
4. My amazing CT.
5. My grandpa. He's been gone now 24 years today, but he lives in my heart. My memories of him are so fresh and vivid. I want them always to be that way.

I'm so excited to share with you that it's time for Divine Digitals Grab Bag Sale again. This weekend you can get great personal and commercial use grab bags at amazing prices. I will have a personal use and a commercial use this weekend! The sale starts midnight tonight and runs Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. I hope you'll stop by and pick up these great bags.

I just have to share this layout with you that my CT member Linda did with the persoanl use grab bag. It's just so cute. Linda has done another one of her great extractions on this layout. All the items, except the alpha, can be found in my personal use grab bag available this weekend only for just $2.00!

I have a freebie for you today. It's a 4 x 6 brag book page perfect for the snowy winter weather we've been having in the North East. This is from my first kit I did last year. I hope to redo it sometime soon. I still really love this kit, but I think I've gotten a lot better at designing in a year's time. You can grab the quickpage here.

Freebie, Sale, and Happy New Year

Happy New Year everyone. It's hard to believe it's 2008. I started a layout yesterday for New Year's and have yet to finish it. It needs a new pic of me (oh joy!) and journaling for today. It's going to be a then and now kind of thing. As a teenager I was very much a homebody-wallflower type still am for that matter. I spent nearly all if not all my NYE's at home with the parental units watching Dick Clark's Rockin' Eve and the ball drop. After the ball dropped and before I fell asleep I'd write a New Year's entry in my journal. I pulled one journal out yesterday for this layout. Wow, was I ever a melancholy teenager. Here's the entry from 1/1/85 when I was 14...

A new year is dawning- a past year left behind to fade. On this eve of a new year, tarnished memories of forgetten years come to mind. They remind us of mistakes and failures. But New Year’s is a new beginning, a fresh start, and a second change to make life meaningful.
Jan. 1, 1985 -
Fourteen years young

And here's the lovely pic I'm going to put with it...

You have to love that fuzzy mullet right? What can I save it was the 80s.

I'm so glad my life today is not the one I had imagined as a teenager. It's much better according to God's plan than my own.

I'm having a little, well not so little sale today. Everything is marked down at Karla's Kaleidoscope Designs 80% today only. Stop on by and pick up some goodies!

Today's freebie is from my Froggy Add-on kit. It's a cute little word art that you can grab here.
