Santa Non-Believer

One of my favorite photographs of my husband concerns a Christmas Holiday Tradition that happens each year at our home.  When my family gathers for opening presents, ever since my first child was a baby I have had each family member have a photo taken in our "I believe in Santa" hat.  I have found that with the exception of my grandchildren ... both my husband and now also my GROWN children want to fight me on this tradition!!!!  The excuse ... (husband) he now EXCLAIMS "I don't believe in Santa!!! and my children ... "Mom, we don't change how we look anymore" (daughters) and our son ... just plain refuses to wear it!!!!  Thank heavens for my GRANDCHILDREN!!!!!

My scrapbook page is of my husband and the hat ..... with very appropriate words!!!  The photo was taken in 2008. 

And here is the preview of today's free word art: 

And to download it:  http://www.4shared.com/zip/vMdDHt1N/g9c-santa_nonbeliever.html.

I have also discovered doing this free daily wordart is forcing me to do a scrapbook page every SINGLE day of my photos I am constantly taking.  I don't just dream ideas now .... I accomplish them.  Thanks!!!!  lol

If you are a newcomer to my site ..... WELCOME .... and come and sit a spell.  I have many other freebies for you to add to your digital library.  You just need to go to my home page and grab all the others.  This is a new venture for me and I love creating for all my new friends to enjoy also. 

Do leave me some comments, as that is the only way I know if you like them.  And become a member, too.

Hugs to all, Sue

Love of Reading

Good morning to each and everyone!!!

Yesteday was a wonderful day here .... we had a high in the low 60's, which is unheard of here in Iowa in the end of January.  The snow is melting .... hurray!!!!

I have been reading the Hunger Games Trilogy and decided to do my free word art for today around that theme.  Has anyone else read it?  Are you loving it like me?  So, here is my scrapbook page around the theme of "reading".

Here is a preview of the word art and you can download it at:  http://www.4shared.com/zip/exbUd-zq/Discount_reading.html.

Hugs, Sue

Won't you be my valentine

Yesterday I received the cutest photograph from my daughter, Angie.  She is my silly, funny and utterly comical child.  Needless to say, I had to make a scrapbook page around it right away.  Now, my mind has been filled with an idea or two; and then this hit me!!!!  Why not do it around her favorite doll when she was a little girl.  Add a twist with  some humor .... love.  Here is my masterpiece.

 I see so many, many ideas for this word art .... little girl playing.

Here is a preview of today's free word art.

Is it to late?

I have a mischevious grandson named Justin.  And during the holidays, I was always teasing him by telling him if he wasn't good .... I had a special cellphone that I could call Santa direct.  He just always just grins at his Nana.  As you can see he loved his present from us!!!!

This holiday scrapbook page I made with him in mind.

Feel So Beautiful

I sure hope this is the last time I try to post this.  It has been one of those mornings.  Hopefully third time is the charm!!!!

Today's word art freebie is around the theme "Feel So Beautiful".  Now, you may be wondering why those words.  I have been thinking how special it is when my husband, John says "I'm beautiful".  It is really quite amazing that he "loves" me through all my moods.  My scrapbook page is around this thought ... my many moods.  Included too, of course is the theme of Christmas and not just Valentine's Day.  What can I say, it is my favorite holiday and I am working on my Christmas scrapbooking.

Here is my scrapbook page.   And, it is followed by a closeup of the word art.

Oh well ... word art preview and then my scrapbook page  You can download at:  .

Again, thank you for coming to my site and if you can sit a spell I have other freebies too ... just backspace
through my site.  As always, please leave some comments ... I always
enjoy reading them.  Hugs, Sue

This was a tough one ....

Now, this morning has been a tough one.  Last night I decided to help myself get finished faster and I did my free word art design.  This had me thinking all I have to do is think of an idea in the morning; then do my scrapbook page around that thought feature my word art freebie for the day............ WRONG!!!!!!!!!

That scrapbook page ate my lunch .... just couldn't get it to come together the way I wanted it to.  This one was hard!!!!

Here it is:

I love adding "humor" to my wordart ... a little away from traditional valentine words and then sometimes do them around another holiday background.   My theme is ..... a box of chocoate, but I wanted DIAMONDS.

Now, the example of the word art:

You can catch it at:  http://www.4shared.com/zip/NXPR5Tbo/g9c-box_chocolate_diamond.html.

Don't forget to leave some love.    And, thank you so much for stopping by for a visit.    Sue

Just want to say thank you

For some reason I am unable to respond to my comments.  It is very important to me that I tell you how much I appreciate your coming to my site.

I want to first thank CBH Digital Scrapbooking for listing my freebies.  And then a special thanks to Orlie and Christine from Italy for your kind words.    Love, Sue

Halloween Uh Oh's

Now when my grandson, Elijah was born .... his big brother appeared not to be jealous of him one bit.  Do you really believe that?  Of course not ... you see it was evident in the most unusual ways.  Tristan decided that all of Elijah's baby "equipment" was officially still his.

This scrapbook page is a tribute to that.

I also want to thank Karen at Karen Lewis Designs for her absolutely unique grave element, which I have featured in this page.  It is the cutest grave I have now collected.  You go and visit her site ... she offers all kinds of kits, free stuff and wonderful quotes.    Her site can be found at:  http://karenlewisdesignz.com/.

Reposting my first freebie

I have been told that my first freebie didn' t match the photo I submitted.  So sorry for the error.

Due to that, I want to submit the correct download along with a photo of that download.     You can down load it at: 


This one is very special to me ... it represents my feelings of family.

And the stockings were hung .....

It is four o'clock in the morning .... and my mind has visions of sugar plums swirling around it.  Just can't seem to get Christmas off of my mind.   Now, what freebie should I offer today?  I think I will chose one that is hung in anticipation of jolly St. Nick.

My freebie can be downloaded at:  http://www.4shared.com/photo/GFBERXKk/And_the_stockings_were_hung-su.html.

I bet there are alot of photos that were taking around all the Christmas baking in your home during the holidays.  What better way to add some wonderful smells right into that scrapbook page you're creating with a little "baking" word art.

You can download this at:  http://www.4shared.com/photo/cjbcfsmr/help_yourself_to_a_cookie.html.

Ummm .... I can smell those yummy cookies, too.

It's gingerbread baking time

The Lost Christmas Card

One of my favorite things to do before the Chrsitmas Season begins is to send out Chrstmas cards.  But, alas I did not receive one from my daughter, Christa last   year.  This is my way of pocking fun at her ....

Also, this scrapbooking page was created using the kit called "Noel" from Laurie Made Me Scraps.  I want to extend an invitation to everyone to go visit her wonderful site.  She is such an artist.

Again, thanks Laurie.

All newcomers

Welcome to all my new friends,

I want to first thank my new friend Laurie from" Laurie Made Me Scrap"  for featuring me on her site .

I have had such a ongoing LOVE AFFAIR with digital scrapbooking that begun just three years ago.  From that moment forward, I have been doing scrapbook pages of my family nonstop.

Now, it is time to expand my horizons.  Why ... do you ask?  Because so many family, friends and others have told me, I need to follow a dream.

I am not ready to take a HUGE plunge just yet, but just the same ... I want to start giving out daily freebies to my new friends that are finding my site.

All I ask in return is this ... please become a member and spread the word about my site.  And to ofcourse, leave some comments.

Welcome, welcome, welcome .... all my new friends

Love, Sue

Let's see if this works

Santa Hat

My most special Christmas decoration is my Santa Hat. It has traveled between Texas and Iowa many a year ... a way of keeping my children connected. Even in the middle of the summer, it makes it's way south. But, it is also my HARDEST decoration to put away. This is my poke of fun ....

Hippopotamus Wish

Just a week before Christmas, Miss Allison heard the song "All I Want For Christmas Is A Hippopotamus" and fell in love with it. She hummed and sang it everywhere. What better gift for Christmas but one of her own. Nana came to the rescue.

Scary Stories

Let's open this Halloween book hidden behind the pumpkin ... are there goblins whispering to the shy ghost?? Come on Mom, says Justin ... I can't wait.

Elijah makes his halloween arrival

I am lucky enough to have my own special little goblin. His name is Elijah and he is my eighth grandchild and sixth grandson!!!

So, it's been just a bewitching halloween filled with more than candy ... I got a bootiful baby boy.

Just a riddle

Halloween is a time of candy, goblins and why not a riddle or two.

Here I am with my favorite Yoda, aka Tristan. Can't get enough of this little fellow.

Caught behind the window

What can I say .... my miss allison is looking out the window wondering when it is going to be time to go "Trick or Treating"?

Just wanted to include a scrapbook page I completed back in November 2011. Afterall, I do like to make scrapbook pages, too.
