FREEBIE quickpage

Well all I have to report today is that there is still no sign of our grandchild emerging.
My daughter is now 10 days over her due dates and the newest edition to the family is still warm and cosy inside. It shows no sign of wanting to emerge and meet the family!

Ah well. I have freebie quickpage based on my new Warm Olives kit available here if anyone would like it.
The photo is of my eldest daughter and soon to be mother of our new grandchild. (when the monkey takes the cork out!)
Enjoy, I would love to see what ypu do with this quickpage.

A challenge layout

After a weekend of waiting near the telephone for our grandchild to appear I spent most of the time loading up clothes on to ebay. These are not mine but my mothers and mother in laws who need a bit of spending money.
I was sick of ebay (and waiting!) when I saw the challenge on UK scrappers to scrap in red and black to celebrate the Chinese new year and to scrap an animal.
What a perfect colour scheme to scrap this photo of Akira, one of my daughters kittens. The journalling says:
Akira was abandoned in a box a few days old. he was named Akira after a Japanese Manga warrior. With such a name, it is sweet he stil sucks his paw when he goes to sleep.
I used my favorite Crimson Gypsy kit again.

Creating quickpages

While I have been sitting waiting for new of the impending birth of our new grandchild, I have been playing with photoshop.
This is another one of the quick page designs created with the lovely Crimson gypsy kit from mglscraps. I added the photo later.
Well I will create some more while I wait for news. Although we are hoping it may be a planned delivery on Friday 23rd January! fingers crossed all goes well.

Template creations

After I used the last template, I have found a few more challenges using templates. This one was the template challenge from the pickleberrypop forum. The original had lots of flowers but it wasnt suitable for a cat photo.

I used the Crimson Gypsy kit from The colours and textures are like jewels.

I think my laptop is about to pack in as some of the keys no longer work. I keep typing then have to go back and correct mistakes as letters do not register. The worst key is the letter g, that one needs a good hard thump to et it to work.

life is hard

You get those times when everything seems to go wrong, the cat is sick and it is looking serious and expensive.

Mother in law is very time demanding as she recovers froma long illness. My mum has to go for further test and is worried sick. My dad is upset as his pet guinea pig died at the weekend.

We seem just to be lurching from one crisis to another. I am not sure who our new year ‘first foot’ was but they are definately sacked for next year.

As a form of stress relief I have been scrapping when I have spare time. I have enjoyed creating quickpages and have loaded some freebies on the website HERE

I have realised that the photos screw up my design processes. so I have designed the page first with just a place for the photos and then find a photo to fit in the design. I know it seems like I am scrapping backwards but it works for me,
This one was based on a free template available from digi shop talk forum and using the wonderland kit from createwings.
