Great Site for Some Free PSE Actions

I found a link to this site from a message board that I'm on. It's PanosFX.com. I've been playing with the stuff I downloaded all day long! Guess it's good I'm sick so I don't have to feel guilty about sitting here playing instead of cleaning house. :) My favorite one by far is the Out of Bounds action. Here are a couple of the pics I did with that one. It was sooo much fun! There are other free actions you can get there too. They also have some available for Photoshop CS users. Have fun!




Ok...not sure why that link isn't showing up...guess it didn't like being blue. It's http://www.panosfx.com/index.php.

Crop Addict Kit for February

The kit this month ROCKS!! If you want to see a preview of what comes in the kit this month, check out the sidebar. You can find a bigger image at Crop Addict. I've got some more done but since I'm the featured DT for February, I can't show you yet since I used it for my challenge samples.

At the end of February, we are having an online crop. Debbie always has tons of prizes to give away to the winners. Stop by if you want some scrapping inspiration!

Things are happening at Serendipity too! We have an online crop going on the weekend before Crop Addict's. These are always a lot of fun too! Kristen has a prize (a kit of your choice usually) for the Queen of the Crop. The DT gives out prizes for each of our challenges too. So if you are looking for lots of inspiration in February, Crop Addict and Serendipity Scrapbooks are the places to be!!!

Happy scrappin'!

Yeah another Twilight post....

So I go with Steph and her sister yesterday to see Twilight again...my second time and their first. In fact, Steph's sister has never read the books. We laughed through most of it!! I told them it was a good movie but some things were just too stinkin' funny even though it wasn't intended to be. So we are sitting in this theater (sold out again btw) and laughing in all the wrong places. I don't care who you are...you still have to laugh when Bella walks into the classroom for the first time and Edward is overplaying the need to hold his nose. Tara asked if his teeth came down...remember she's never read the books she just knows that Edward was a vampire. Jasper's expression during the whole movie is something else. And who can forget Spider Monkey???? But it is still a great movie and I'll still be stalking the store at midnight on March 21st to buy my copy to torture Brannon with. And I still can't wait for New Moon to be released at the end of the year! Awww...Edward......

Reappearance

Sorry for being gone for so long! The last couple of months have been really busy and all of us have taken turns being sick. Let's see....The day after my last post I got to go see Twilight. Yeah, it had parts that were way different from the book but I still loved it. BTW...it's supposed to be coming out on DVD on March 21st! Brannon will be hating life. Anymore, he just rolls his eyes every time he sees me reading one of the books (granted I'm on my 5th pass through them but they are REALLY good!), so he's going to hate me having the DVD on all the time too. I guess to say I'm obsessed is putting it mildly. :)

We all had a great Christmas and everyone got what they wanted. I'm still trying to get the house back together after taking the decorations down. My village is still up. I really need to get that down.

I have been scrapping too. My projects are on the other computer but I'll post them soon. Or you can see them in the gallery at Serendipity Scrapbooks. Kristen usually sends me stuff that scares me to death but then after start playing with them I really like the projects. She sent me an acrylic album and asked me to use very little patterned paper on it. After I was done, that ended up being one of my favorite projects. You can see it here. This last month she sent me Heidi Swapp papers, Melissa Francis stickers, K&Company chipboard words and I can't remember what else. I made this canvas for one of my projects. I'm really sad this is my last month on the design team. I'm glad I got to stay on for 2 terms. It's been a lot of fun and I've made some really great friends. I'll still be on the boards though. ;)

I made the design team at Crop Addict again. Debbie has combined the Creative and the Design teams. I'm excited I get to play with the kits. You will LOVE February's! If you haven't checked her kits out lately, she's changed them up a little to make them more affordable if you are on a tight budget. She is offering 1/2 kits or you can get the whole kit if you want everything. I think this starts with February's kits though. January is still the whole kit. January is a great kit too!! They sell out fast so if you want one you'd better hurry!

I've been playing around with digital scrapping a lot the last few weeks. Brannon let me get the Premier subscription to Scrapper's Guide. I've really learned a lot so far!! Mom got me the video tutorials from Scrap Girls for PSE 7 for Christmas so too. So between Ro and Linda, I've been learning all kinds of tricks! The first digi layout on here is one I did with the January kit from the Scrapper's Guide January issue. The 2nd one is a picture of Caden I took over Christmas. I was playing around with PSE today and did this. The next one was for a challenge over at www.splitcoaststampers.com. The supplies were from the freebie kit that was created for the challenge. And the last one is a layout I did with some supplies I found while I was tagging my digi kits. Oh and speaking of digi kits, Kristen (Serendipity Scrapbooks) created a Christmas digi kit and is offering it for free on her blog. Check it out! You'll be glad you did!!!

So until next time....
