Cousins We Be


Denise from over at Sweetz had a request for some wordart about cousins. So I gave it a try, and decided to share them with everyone else as well. I hope that you like these. I'm sure that I will also find a use for some or all of these, with our ever-growing family, we have loads of 'Cousins' pictures.

We have nothing greater to give than our love!



I had a go at some more of the challenges over at Hummie's World, ended up combining several to create a great memory LO of my Grandmother. I surprised myself at how many challenges that I could combine into one LO!

1. January (Designer) Color Challenge - I created the kit used
2. Template challenge #28
3. Font challenge
4. Quote Challenge
5. Again the January (Designer) Color Challenge by creating these quick pages that I have for you today.
Thanks for the challenges Hummie!!

Here are two quick pages, both created at 300 DPI.
One is 12x12 inches
One is 11x8.5 inches
Both are created in PNG format.
The font used in the quote on the page is 4990810.
You will find the download for both below the previews.
The actual quickpage looks much better than the previews do!
And you can read the quote much better on the actual QP as well.
The quote reads...

"We can provide our family and friends with many things,
but we have nothing greater to give than our love.
Unknown"


I think that this a great quote that Hummie found, and so very true!
Again I would like to say thank you to the one's that always make the time to leave a little comment on my work. You all are the greatest!

UPDATED : 10:20 A.M. CENTRAL TIME 12/29/07
I have decided to include the QP with and without the quote,
should have done this to start with as I usually do. So now
when you download the QP you will get it with and without the quote in one zipped file. I'm sorry for the inconvenience that this may have caused anyone.

Merry Christmas


I only have a few minutes to spare as we will be celebrating Christmas today, tonight, and tomorrow. But wanted to stop in and give you a little Christmas pressie. I know this doesn't look much like a Christmas template, but it is never the wrong time for love is it?

I made a LO this morning to include in a card that I'm making for my husband. And thought I would offer ya'll the template from it. The quote used in this layout is from a song titled 'Danny's Song' it was written by Kenny Loggins, and has been recorded by several, Loggins and Messina, Anne Murrary , & Lonestar. I have always loved this song, especially these lines. I've left the quote in the template in case you might want to use it, if not just delete that layer. The hearts on the background are also a separate overlay layer, which could also be deleted if you don't want to use it.

Short But Sweet


This will be a short but sweet post today, as I still have a lot to do, to finish getting ready for Christmas. It is just around the corner! Are you ready?

Now for the sweet...
I have some more wordart to share with you.
This wordart isn't really anything to do with Christmas.
These are all great for your LO's of children, grandchildren, etc..
The first one 'Wrapped' I used the titles, Mommy, Daddy, Nanny, Pa, & Auntie because that is what our grandchildren call different family members. If you have a request for one that I didn't include, let me know and I will try my best to make you one, as time permits.

Thank you again for all the terrific people that take the time to leave a little comment on mine (and others) work. It really is appreciated!

Christmas Is Almost Here!!!


I hope that everyone is about ready for Christmas. As is it almost here. Our shopping is done, and most of the presents have been wrapped. I will be doing a lot of baking and making the traditional fudge, cookies, and candies that everyone expects to see, over the next few days. It takes me a lot longer to do these things now than it used to because of the back problems that I have.

I'm so surprised at the response that I have received on my work! I'm so happy that someone other than myself and my family actually likes it. And to all of the people that take the time to say 'Thank you' or leave a few comments here, at 4shared, or to the right in my chatbox, you all are fantastic, you know who you are! You are greatly appreciated, as I love to read your comments, they inspire me to create and share more. I don't sell any of my work, but do share it freely with you all here.

I'm back today with some new Christmas wordart to share with you,
(four of them).
I hope someone can find a use for them. And remember if you want to share your LO (layout) with me, using any of my work, I'd love to see them.
The drop shadows are on the previews only.

Running Late !!!!


I'm running late this morning, I slept later than usual, sure needed the sleep, but this morning is my granddaughter's Christmas program at school. I'm going to have to rush and get ready, as I sure don't want to miss this!!

I want to share a LO by Jimtown of her granddaughter.
Isn't this the sweetest smile? She used my Greatest Gift wordart in this LO. Thanks again for choosing my wordart and for allowing me to share your LO here with everyone.

The template is available in both 12x12 and 8.5x11. I have been working on albums for my children, and making them 8.5x11 so I generally perfer this size myself. But sometimes I will run across one that is 12x12 that I really like, and have learned through trial and error that it really isn't all that hard to resize them. I made it a little easier for you though by offering both. They are also in PSP & PSD formats. If someone has a prefrence for a size that I don't have, just let me know and I'll see if I can resize it for you.

A Peaceful Christmas



I created a LO for the Lyric challenge over at DSO by Mrsaboyer. We were given a lot of lines that we could choose from. The lines that I chose to use are
"A very merry Christmas
And a happy New Year
Let's hope it's a good one
Without any fear"
They are only a few lines from the song . . .
"Happy Christmas (War is Over)" by John Lennon
I picked these lines because they mean so much to me, with all of the terrible things that are going on in the world today. There are just so many situations to be fearful of. I would like to wish that the whole world could live without any type of fear and in peace.
I'd like to share my layout with you. I used Kim's kit 'Christmas Around The World' again on this LO. Thanks again Kim for sharing with us.

Full credits here.

I've made a couple of QP's for you today. You get one using the lyrics, and one without. They are both in PNG format and in one zipped file you get them both. This quickpage could be used for several different types of layouts. I hope that someone finds a use for it. And remember I love to see what you create. Feel free to send me your LO's and if you would like to see them posted here, give me permission when you send me your LO's or give me a way to contact you back so that I can ask you. I love to see what you create, but I won't post it without asking you first.

Updated: 7:48 AM - I thought you might like one or the other so decided to offer them separately as well as combined, links below the previews.

Christmas Spirit


My dear husband has really got the Christmas Spirit! He loves the lights, and enjoys putting them up for everyone to enjoy. Do you remember that I told you Tony would keep adding to our Christmas lights outside. Well he has added more since I lasted posted about them. I did this LO for the December quote challenge over at DSO by Lisa Joy. The picture shows the latest one that I've made of our lights. The picture only show a portion of the lights. Tony has really been working hard! People are coming up and turning around in our drive to see the lights. I was outside the other night making these pictures of the lights, and about three different carloads of families turned around. I love to see the excitement on the kids faces when they see all of the lights! :)
I also have a lot of Christmas spirit, I love to give and give and give. Well you get the picture, I have lots to give you today! Just look below.

Here is my layout of these lights.

Sharing A Layout , A Recipe & Freebies


I'm sorry I'm so late getting this posted today, but seems like every time I tried that something came up. Have you ever had one of those days?
Well I guess it's better late than never. LOL
I've got a lot to share with you today.

First, I'd like to share a LO with you that I did for the December Recipe Challenge over at DSO by Kristine.
I love to cook also, so I really enjoy these challenges. This recipe is Sausage Balls a big favorite around our house for the kids as well as the adults. They are very easy to make with only 3 ingredients! You can use hot sausage if you want, I don't because all the kids in our family like it too! Plus with my acid reflux , I
can't really eat anything hot and spicy. First the LO, the recipe follows.

You can see the LO full size in my gallery at DSO, click here
Or in my gallery at ScrapbookFlair click here

Credits for the LO ...
Kit used is Dec Heritage Bonus by FishinmomDesigns
Fonts used are Loki Cola & GilliesGotDLig

Here is the recipe
Sausage Balls
2 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
1 pound ground pork sausage
3 cups bisquick biscuit mix
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
In a large bowl, mix together biscuit mix, Cheddar cheese, and sausage.
Roll mixture into walnut-size balls and arrange on an ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake at 350 degrees for 5 to 15 minutes, or until completely cooked and browned.
Place on paper towels to drain and cool.

I would also like to share with you a LO and a QP made by others that used some of my stuff.

This first is a layout by Teenabugg
'The Many Faces Of Brandon'
This is her son, isn't he adorable? You can visit Teenabugg's gallery at ScrapbookFlair by clicking on her name.
And see this page and the credits by clicking on the layout. Be sure and leave Tennabugg and Brandon some love on her page if you stop by there. :)

Tennabugg used my wordart 'Boy With A Million Faces'. You can get the wordart for yourself by clicking here if you missed it.

Leave Jamie some love and let her know that you like her work and we might get to see some more of it. :)
She used my 'Pretty In Pink' template to make this QP. You can get the template for yourself by clicking here for the PSD version, or here for the PSP version if you missed it. I also had papers and another QP with this post, you can find them by clicking the link above - 'Pretty In Pink'.


If you are still with me I have a freebie for you today. This is a saying that I used to say to my children when they were small, now my grandchildren are learning to say it. I did a LO the other day of two of my grandchildren who are only a couple months apart in age, boy and girl, they are cousins and are the youngest children of my two daughters. They don't get to see each other very often but when they do, they are inseparable.

Here is a preview of the wordart freebie, the drop shadow is only on the preview.
'I Love You'

Peace Hope Love


With so many killings in the news, my Christmas wish for the world is Peace, Hope, & Love. My heart goes out to all those that are touched by the recent shootings.

Your Smile Is The Greatest Gift & Family


I've got a couple of wordarts to give you today. I created these a while back for some layouts that I made. The first one I'm sorry but I can't remember what fonts that I used. I made it for a layout I was doing of one of our youngest granddaughter's, it took about a dozen pictures before we actually got her to smile. Then it was such a beautiful smile, one worth waiting for. She is only 4 months old and has such a beautiful smile. The second one I used on a layout I made, kind of collage style, only the faces of our children, their partners, and all the grandchildren.
Thank you to everyone that takes the time to say, hi, thank you, and to just let me know that you like and appreciate the freebies that I have. I love to read your messages, your appreciation means a lot to me, and inspires me to make more. You know who you are, and you are the greatest! Now here are are a couple of more freebies for you.

When You Stop Believing


I went with my daughter yesterday to take two of my granddaughters to see Santa. My oldest granddaughter, Elizabeth is seven. And she really didn't want these pictures made. When I asked her why, she said because "They'll make fun of me". They being her older cousins (other side of family) , who have informed Elizabeth that only babies believe in Santa. I told her to tell them that "When you stop believing in Santa, you only get underwear for Christmas". So I made this wordart in honor of Elizabeth. Here is the layout that I used it in, a layout for my granddaughter, of probably the last Christmas that she might possibly believe, as they have now put the doubt in her little mind.

The journaling reads...
Elizabeth, always remember
what I told you, Santa is REAL!
He lives in our hearts, if we let him.
Never let anyone make you ashamed
to believe in the magic of Christmas!
Love ya both bunches, Nanny
