Lots of Goodies!!!

WOW, What a week this past week has been!  I would love to thank you for all the comments left, here, in the CBox, and at 4shared. And a special thank you to Paulett in Ohio, who took the time to email me and let me know how much she appreciates my creations.  You are the ones who inspire me to keep sharing what I create when playing around in PSP. 

I've received three awards in the last couple of days, two of them by two different people, this week, plus a couple of them I've gotten it in the past. 
The rules of each of these awards said that I had to pass them on, as I've already received the first two, I've passed them on in the past. So I'll only be passing the third one along at this time.
Here they are...

Thank you for this award Chrmd

Thank you for this award Jane and Chrmd

Thank you for this award June and Lorri 

The rules are:If you receive this AWARD pass it onto 3 other Trusted Friend Blogs.
Ok as I was writing this post , I received the notice that June had passed this award to me as well, she was one that I was going to pass this one too, so June this comes back to you as well. LOL
So here are 3 more for the Trusted Friend Award...

Trading Cards & Badge Holders

it's official...I'm a Wylde woman! I'm very honored that June thinks of me as a Wylde woman. Thanks from the bottom of my heart June.


The Purpose of the Award: To send love and acknowledgment to women who brighten your day, teach you new things and live their lives fully with generosity and joy.

The rules are :-

1. You can give it to one or one hundred or any number in between - it's up to you. Make sure you link to their site in your post.

2. Link back to this blog site (http://www.tammyvitale.com/) so Tammy can go visit all these wonderful women we've given it to.

So after some thought I would like to pass it to:

1. Kim at KimB Designs one of the first scrapping blogs that I visited when I started digiscrapping. Her since of humor and the stories she tells on her blog always brings a smile to my face.

2. Kat also known as TragedyScrappinAnne - who has taught me about templates and how great they can be in the making of a layout.  :)

3. Bunny - owner of DSO (Digital Scrap Obsession) the first scrapping community that I joined. a fun place to be, lots of challenges, and great freebies for doing them.

4. Nikki - who let me know that she liked my layouts by asking me to be on her CT team, and letting me get to use all of her wonderful kits!!!

5. and last but not least, June - I know that she gave the award to me, but I have to give it back to her as well. For being the first to ask me to be on a CT team, being a great friend, and having a very generous blog, always giving of herself.


Now for the freebie that I have for you today.  I recently made a small scrapbook for my purse, using badge holders. It is great for having pictures of my children & grandchildren always with me.  Here are some templates in the perfect size for trading cards or to use in a project such as I just finished.  There are 5 templates - 2.5x3.5 inches each. Available in both PSP & PSD forms.

Fried Green Tomatoes

I'm soooo tired!!! My DH and I have spent the weekend going to some of the sales on the Hwy 127 Yard Sale. I love yard sales and a bargain, so we had a great time! We usually set up on this route, but this year for a change of pace we decided to go to them ourselves. We ran across some great bargains, one is this brew & grind coffee maker, which had only been used once. We bought it for a $1.00 !! After looking this up online to try and find the manual for how it works, I found out this was $129.00 when bought new. To the person who sold this to us, I'd like to say Thank You again, this works perfect and makes the best coffee . We also found lots more Christmas directions. So DH will have a ball putting them up this year :)


I took a look at Kim's color challenge over at DSO, and all I could see in these colors are the tomatoes that my hubby had set out, and I've been so busy with lately putting them up (what we haven't ate) for eating on a later date. I hope you like and can find a use for my newest kit ...

Thanks for another great color challenge Kim. I really enjoy these :) While looking online for new and different recipes for tomatoes, I ran across an interesting one called - Green Tomato Cake . I haven't had a chance to try it out yet, but I plan on trying it in a few days. I scrapped the recipe using this kit. If anyone would like it, you can find the download links below, for both the scrapped version (includes text version), and a text only version.

Green Tomato Cake

Note Added: I forgot to add that I used a CU template by Kimberly Wresh in the making of this LO. I know she stated that no credit was required but I still like to give proper credit.

Download the text only recipe here

I have so much I need to get caught up on, but right now - rest is the most important of what I need, so I guess that will be first. I'll be back the first part of the week with more goodies for you.
