Another Template Freebie

I wanted to take this opportunity to thank everyone for visiting my blog this month during my 35th wedding anniversary celebration!  I hope you have had as much fun as I have had!  Life passes by so quickly, doesn't it?  It is hard to believe, also, that our oldest of four children is 31 this year!  When I think about being married for 35 years, I don't really feel so old.  But, when I say I have a child that is 31 years old..............THEN I feel old, LOL!  She is actually almost 31 1/2!  And her brother next to her will turn 30 in June!  WOW!  That's even worse!  2 kids 30+ years old!  YIKES!

My shop is still on sale for 35% off today.  And I hope you also took advantage of the extra 10% coupon from yesterday.  I know some of you did and I appreciate your support!

I was wondering what I would give to you today since I've given you all the word art I've made, LOL!  But then someone suggested that one of the layouts made by one of my CT members shown in the slide show above would make a great template.  So, at her request, that is what I've done!  I'll show you the layout she referred to and then below that will be the download link on the preview of the template.  All of the templates that I make will also include the PNG files for those of you who need those and cannot use the PSD file.  There is also a smaller JPG version, too.  So, with that being said, here's the CT layout.  Leslie used my "Love, the Greatest of These" kit.  You can click on the layout to get the kit for $2.00 TODAY only!  It normally sells for $5.99!

And, here's the template.  Click on it for the download.  ENJOY!  AND, thanks for stopping by Today!

Life is Good FREEBIE - Day 8 and a Coupon!

Happy Memorial Day from the USA!  I just want to say THANKS to those who are sacrificing to keep us safe and free!  Especially to the families of those who paid the ultimate sacrifice with their lives for our freedom!  Thank you, from the bottom of my heart!

The Memorial Day Weekend Sale is still going on in my store with 50% off through Tuesday, May 31st!  And, if you are reading this, please keep reading to the end because I have a special surprise for you, besides the freebie of the day.

Before I get to the freebie, may I share some layouts with you today?  These pages are of my grandson who will turn 1 year old next month.  It is hard to believe it has been almost a year already since he came into our lives!  My only regret is that I don't live closer to him to get to know him better!  The first 2 pages are using the kit I am working on, "Life is Good at the Beach."  I thought I would give you a sneak peek at the kit since I've been giving you the word art all week long!  The other pages are made with various kits in my store at Faith Sisters.  If you click on them you will be directed to the kit, all of which are 50% off!  Thanks for taking the time to look!

Isn't he the cutest?  :D  OK, I'm allowed to be prejudiced............I'm his grandma!  :D

Now, let me tell you about the special deal I have for those of you who are visiting my blog TODAY only!  In addition to my store being 50% off of almost every item (with the exception of the $1 items) I have a special coupon for you!  When you make a purchase in my store TODAY only, besides the 50% off, which is a terrific bargain in itself, if you use the coupon code MEM_10  upon checkout you will receive another 10% off your entire order.  The coupon is only good for one use per person and in my store, so make sure you get everything you want at the time of your purchase!  Just click on the ad below (which was made using the kit I'm working on, "Life is Good at the Beach," btw) to go to my store!  Happy shopping on this Memorial Day!

Today's free download is below!  Thanks so much for stopping by and visiting with me Today!  Have a blessed day!

Life is Good FREEBIE - Day 7

Hope you had a good Saturday and pray that you have an even better Sunday!  I hope you have plans to attend services in the LORD's house today!

I keep saying that I am almost finished with my first kit in the "Life is Good" series, "Life is Good at the Beach," but I keep finding things that inspire me to keep on creating for it!  It is going to be a really cute kit and a HUGE size for the price!  It will be released on June 1st, finished or not!  :D

And, today's freebie is another word art from this kit, "Life is Good at the Beach!"  I think you will really like it!  I hope you have been collecting the word art!  If not, the links will still be available to download through the end of the month!  Be sure and visit each of the posts for the last week to get the previous ones!

Also, I wanted to give you a heads up!  Make sure you visit my blog tomorrow!  I'll have an additional surprise for you..........besides another free word art!

Life is Good FREEBIE - Day 6

I hope you are enjoying the word art!  I'm getting very close to being done with the kit that goes with the word, "Life is Good at the Beach!"

Short and sweet today because I'm very tired and have had a headache all day!  I hate it when that happens!  So, just click on the preview for the download.  ENJOY!

Life is Good FREEBIE - Day 5

The holiday weekend has officially started!  Memorial Day in on Monday, but the picnics begin this weekend!  But, let us NOT forget the reason for this holiday here in the USA.  If you are visiting my blog from another country, please go to this link to learn about our Memorial Day here in the USA.

Now, since the weekend has started, and it is a holiday weekend, and there are only 5 more days left in the month for my wedding anniversary celebration, I'm upping the % off in my store for the rest of the month.  You can now get everything that originally costs $1.99 and higher for half price!  Just click on the ad to go to my store at Faith Sisters!

And, now for today's freebie word art.  This word art is from the future kit, "Life is Good at the Pool."  I will be selling the word art separately when the kit becomes available.  That way those of you who are getting them for free won't have to worry with them the second time around if I would've included them in the kit as usual.  Click on the preview for the download link.

As always, I appreciate your stopping by Today!  Happy holiday weekend!

Life is Good FREEBIE - Day 4

I looked up the word "shenanigans" for its origin.  No one really knows.  If you are wondering about why I mention this, please see yesterday's post.  Since I originally had to post today's freebie on my Facebook page, yesterday's word art was only downloaded 4 times!  Be sure to grab yesterday's word art!

So, today's freebie is another word art from the kit I'm working on, "Life is Good at the Beach."    I hope you are enjoying getting these.  I will be selling them separate from the kit(s) when the time comes.  ENJOY!

As always, thanks so much for stopping by Today!

Shenanigans! and DAY 3 FREEBIE

I'm just a LITTLE perturbed today!!!  Why is it that Google has to mess with stuff!  My password was just FINE until yesterday!  All of a sudden, I cannot sign in!  Password not recognized!  So after SEVERAL tries I forgot about posting anything yesterday and decided I'd try again today.  Maybe it just needed some rest and in the morning it would be back to it's normal self!  NOT!  I had to go through the process of changing my password.............again!  Except this time google would NOT accept my usual password and it would not accept anything I tried to create.........until I had a combination of the following................symbol, capital letter, number.................grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!  I HATE having to have a list of passwords because there is no way on earth you can remember the STUPID things!  DOUBLE GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!  It wouldn't irritate me at all if they gave you some warning!

OK, now that I have that out of my system.................I need to go and look up the origin to the word "shenanigans" and see if the "she" in the front of the word has some significance!  I sure hope google doesn't play any more "SHENANIGANS" while I'm gone!

BUT, before I go, I want to post today's freebie for you.  I ended up posting this to my Facebook page, but now that I have been able to get back on here I'll post it here.   Anyway.....................just click on the preview to go to the download!  This is another piece of word art from my "Life is Good at the Beach" kit I am working on.  It is one of those kits that I'm just going to have to STOP working on because it is getting HUGE again!  I have 28 papers and more than 40 unique elements so far!  I will be selling this word art separately, so you need to grab them while you can!

As always, thanks for stopping by TODAY............and for listening to my RANT!  :D

While I'm thinking of it, don't forget about the 35% anniversary sale going on in my store at Faith Sisters!  Everything except for the $1 items is on sale!  The month is almost gone and when it is, the sale will be too!  Click on the ad to check out some deals if you haven't already!  I have to say that lots of people have taken advantage of the deals this month!  Thanks to all of you who participated in my anniversary by taking advantage of the freebies and the sale!

Life is Good FREEBIE - Day 2

You know, life IS good when you know the LORD!  Not perfect, but good!  There are always those days that you wish you could do away with, but for the most part, just being a child of the King means your life is good!  Can I have an AMEN on that!  :D  I spent all day listening to some really good preaching today, can you tell?  We traveled to VA to a preacher's fellowship where we heard 4 sermons and a testimony from a missionary.  So all of our spirits were lifted by the time we left there tonight (last night, actually)!  So, when I got ready to make this post, another idea for a kit in the "Life is Good" series came into mind and was inspired by the activities of the day............"Life is Good in the LORD!"

And, thanks to "Photographing Mom" for her suggestion of "Life is Good in the Mountains!"  I can already envision the purple mountains in the kit!  :D  And since I happen to live in one of the beautiful mountain states in the eastern portion of the USA, I'll need to really consider this suggestion for sure!

OK, on with today's freebie.  I'm going to continue with the word art freebies.  Yesterday's (which is still available) was a word art tag from a future kit, "Life is Good at the Pool."  Today's is from the kit I am currently working on, "Life is Good at the Beach."  I love to stroll along the beach, especially near sundown.  It is such a beautiful scene to me!  But, most people go to the beach for fun in the sun!  So, that is your freebie for today.  Hope you enjoy this little word art tag, too!  Just click on the preview for the download link.  ENJOY!

Thanks for stopping by Today!

Take a Challenge with Me.....Freebies are Involved!

I really need to be better about promoting the TWO challenges I host at Faith Sisters every month!  And, I would LOVE to have you participate!  The title "challenge" is not really true because they are actually sooooooooooo easy to do!  They are both basically scraplift challenges. 

I LOVE this one!  I provide everything you need for the Desktop Calendar challenge, except the kit..........and, actually, I have PLENTY of FREEBIE mini kits in the store that you could use, too!  For the desktop calendar challenge you get instructions, a different template to use every month for the desktop design and you get several choices of calendar templates AND a background overlay which is month-specific in the FREE download!  Click on the preview below to go to the May forum thread.  My Desktop for May is shown below the download preview.  Did I mention that this is my favorite "challenge?"  ;D

Here's my desktop for May, featuring my newest grandchild, Abigail.  And I used the new kit I created in her honor, Abigail.  It is on sale for $3.89 this month.  Click on my desktop to see the kit in the store.

This is a theme-related scraplift challenge.  However, that varies from month to month, too.  One month there was no particular theme.  This month the theme is MOTHERHOOD but instead of a scraplift, there is a template provided for you to use.  And upon completion of the "challenge" your prize is a set of quick pages created from 2 of my new kits in the store this month.  You can click on the template preview to go to the challenge thread.  Below that is my layout I made the template from, featuring my sweet little granddaughter, Abigail.  And I turned the layout into one of the quick page prizes you will receive!

So, I sure hope you will participate with me!  Thanks for stopping by Today!

Here's my page of sweet Abigail.  I used my new kit made in her honor, Abigail.

Day 5 FREEbie Template - INCLUDING PNG files for ALL Templates!

It was brought to my attention that not everyone can use .PSD files in their scrapbooking programs.  Creative Memories was one that was mentioned.  It was also mentioned that .PNG files could be used, so I decided to put together the .PNG files for each of the templates I have given away this week.  Each layer of the templates are separated into their own files.  Those links, for those of you who want/need them, are below today's template preview.  I'd like to hear any comments about the .PNG files that you, the user, might have!

ENJOY and thanks for stopping by Today!

FREE Daily Download - Day 4 - Final Day

Today is the last day for this daily download series.  I hope you have gotten all the parts up to now.  If not, check the previous 2 posts for the other links.  At midnight tonight EST, Sunday, May 15th all of the links will expire.  Tomorrow I will be back with something else in the way of celebrating my 35th wedding anniversary this month.

And, speaking of celebrating my anniversary, my store has been on sale at 35% off this month.  But, for today only, I'm going to change it up a bit and reduce my store to 50% off of anything that is $1.99 and over original price.  Head over there and see what kind of bargains you can find!  If it hasn't changed over to 50% off yet, wait for a bit and visit again.  I'm not sure what time the pricing changes over since I'm in the eastern part of the US and I believe the store is in the west.

And now for the final daily download.  Click on the preview to grab it!

Thanks for stopping by Today and have a blessed day by spending it with the LORD!

FREE Daily Download - Day 1 and Day 2 - Let's TRY Again, Shall We?

Well, I lost 3 days of this blog (as I'm sure everyone did) and I would complain, but what earthly good would it do, really?!  So, let's just start over with a smile!  :D

As I was saying, before WE were so rudely interrupted, my celebration of 35 years of marriage continues through the whole month of May!  And, that is a good thing for you, as I have put my store at Faith Sisters on sale at 35% off for the whole month!  And, it is slipping by very quickly, I might add!  Life has a way of doing that, doesn't it?

Also, I am doing some different things here as part of my celebration.  To review, I have given away a couple of kits to 2 blessed people!  (I hope they feel blessed to have received them, LOL!)  I have had a quick page challenge where everyone who downloaded a free mini and submitted a quick page they made from the mini, received a total of 8 quick pages!  And now comes the 4 days of Daily Downloads that were interrupted!  I was going to leave the links live til midnight each day, but since we can't trust (ahem) operations around here, I'll just leave them all active until Sunday midnight EST, May 15th.  How's that?!

Now, before I give you the links to the freebies, I wanted to show you the kit that your freebies coordinate with.  And, it is included in my 35% off sale that is going on this month.  This kit is so huge that I divided up the previews to give you a better look.  You  can click on either preview to go to the product in the store.

Below those previews and the preview to the complete free mini you are here for are yesterday's and today's download links.  Be sure and come back tomorrow and Sunday for the rest of the mini!  Hope you enjoy it!

Thanks for stopping by Today and have a blessed day!
