I just sent one of these...well actually Xerox did it for me...I know I don't get a whole lot of thank you in the comments. But could you maybe take a little time and send a thank you to the men and woman overseas? That would mean so much to them and be such a small amount of your time!?!
Thanks, enjoy the freebies!

I opened my email this morning and the scrapping world had filled my in box with Happy Birthday wishes! Then my first CT boss Charlie gave a lovely gift to all her team members, so it was like a birthday present too! Jenny had a thread dedicated to my birthday wishes and it made me smile!
I wanted to let you know about a FREEBIE over at Charlie's Blog! It is brags 13! of them! All made with her new kit Fantasy Dreams available at SAS or Snap & crap Stores!
Download here at Charlie's Blog
My hubby is taking the kids to school for me today, and I have the whole day to play...I am a bit sick, so a nap is on the agenda, but scrapping for fun will be a big part of the day!
I wanted to share a layout I spent days on...I had it done last week, but kept reading books on softening and extracting, and played with it for about 3 days. It is my sweet Abby, sound asleep on a bed made by the kit Charlie produced: Fantasy Dreams.
The kit is so soft and silky and the other CTM just made the most amazing layouts!
Please be inspired and take a look, you will see them and not believe how versitile this kit is! I saw the satin flowing papers and knew I had to find a way to use them...they look just like a rumpled bed! I am learning new things with softening and the magic brush is my friend! ha ha
Jenny has a new kit in the works to come out this Friday! I will be playing with it today and hope to have some fun add-ons for you also! Stay tuned!

The pine tree elements and that purple bow just scream to be in a layout! I love it! Don't you?? Jenny already has a free QP over on her blog and a few layouts made with the kit! Wait til you see her twin boys!!!! Click on the freebie QP and get it!
I will be adding a freebie QP from my 1st boss Charlie's Shabby Old Blue kit. Hopefully tomorrow! So much thanks go to her for giving me a taste of the CT scrapping world! Please drop by her blog and tell her what an encouragement she is and buy something! lol
I spent the morning with one of the precious converts in the church that had fallen off the planet and she prayed and rededicated her life to Jesus...so overwhelmed with family can be handled! woo woo
this is my life and why I live! seeing the power of Jesus Christ touch a life! and to be the vessel that is used...
I have sent off numereous emails to different designers for call to make layouts for them (it is called a creative team or CT). I have also recieved alot of thanks but no thanks, boo hoo...(not really, ha ha), but I keep persueing different calls that have designs I feel I could do good work and feel right about blogging and telling you about! So I just wait for emails from these talented woman!
I am going to be guest CT (December and January)for a new lady Nikki Painter, her kits are really beautiful. The poor thing is at the end of her pregnancy and not feeling to well. I am hoping to do some good work for her. I picked up a gorgeous alpha (FREE) from her blog! Thru Nikki, I have been perusing a new forum Faith Sisters, it is a very nice bunch of folks that put God first in their scraps...and I like that!
I wanted to post this layout too, I did it using dear Charlies new kit Frogs and Mudcakes...and it is my kids walking with my mom. I feel a bit dishonest in the picture, as the picture was kinda ugly, so I did alot of manipulating to make it a better shot...because they were all together in it....I added the sunrays and the left is actually another picture later in the walk I extracted and merged together....but I love the layout, because Gramma loves her grandkids and walking and having the two together makes it special to me.

So life here in Yuba City has been the normal adventure....alot of waiting....waiting to hear about a building(the owner is finagaling with her accountant), we are praying that they will:
1. lower the price per square foot
2. do all the building...tear down walls etc! It seems to be leaning this way....
they are a really sweet couple and just want someone who they can trust....
The girl Tony talked with last week had to work Sunday
Tony preached an awesome sermon that restirred my heart to put God first and the wild thing is 1/2 way thru the sermon, a kaplow of the Holy Ghost came in and I could see a change on Tony...it was really a good thing!
Tony is still on the early early shift at Target and picking up hours where he can with ToysRUs...and still putting out resume's...with some new options opening still in the field he was in.
Halloween was fun, had about 30-40 kids come by, talked with a few neighbors parents I hadn't met. Tony took the kids around the block and they had to come back to empty their bags...they were BLESSED (me too) with the good candy...woo woo! We have 4 big hug bowls of candy...
We had RAIN this week...I mean RAIN! It was beautiful, made a fire in the fireplace, enjoyed some fun with the kids inside....(yeah I am nuts)...and then the sun came back out and the air was clear and crisp and the colors of autumn...oh my they are just amazing!
I am still enjoying the scrapping world, and have learned alot! Hope to have some fun Christmas cards to send all ya'll!
thanks for your prayers...we need and covet them!
oh by the way, the Rog and Heidi are traveling down here from Oregon this upcoming Monday, prayers for them and their van to make it here and back would be so appreciated...

"it never rains in California, But girl don't they warn ya, it pours, man it pours!"
and it does!
Soooooooooooo...after a night of so much candy trick or treating, we were on sugar hangover....Tony worked early this morning.
The kids and I went to the library and a bit of grocery shopping on the 1st...EEEK! everyone in Yuba City was in the SAME store!
I got to scrap for hours this afternoon, with a fire in our stove, it was lovely. I am learning how to do brag books and quick pages. I enjoyed it...and hopefully be able to have something up soon for you!
I am looking forward to giving to the scrappin' community.
