More FREEBIES...bunches of 'em too

dang! If you are looking for some goodies...this is the perfect place to find them....WOO-Hoo for you (AGAIN)

To grab one fab freebie of mine, my "Say Cheese Please" mini kit, you can have fun playing with my current Descriptive Word Challenge at DSC. It's all about depicting IMAGINATION. I think that leaves it wide open for soooo many different fun LOs, especially when little kids are involved.
my Challenge Freebie:

my ABC Imagination LO:

I did a LO with these pics in May, but I really didn't like it...now I love it....and now worthy of my ABC book for the grandparents.............as soon as our new blinds were delivered, Hudson just knew the boxes would make the perfect freeway for his vehicles
papers from Jeannie Papai's Boys Boys and more Boys Add-on and Rachel Solenberg's Theresa kits
star is by me (Sara Ellis)
font is arial black

Now...for 9 mini kits (yes, that's right....9 of them) which make up one very large MEGA kit ...you better run fast, before some of those links start disappearing .... DSC's November Mega kit is all about "giving thanks".
My contribution was the last one to be unveiled for it. Just scroll down a smidge and you can see my "Family Dinner" preview.

Last...but not least....... one other LO to share:

journalling: Hudson.... I was so bummed I didn’t have my camera with us while we were in the frontyard waiting for the mail to be delivered today. You were being the best overprotective big brother you could be. Every time you heard a car, you had to go hold Griffin to make sure he didn’t wander down our driveway. I just kept telling you how precious & sweet you were being. It was the first time I’d ever seen you act that way. 11.27.06 ~Mom (Hudson is 26 mo & Griffin is 13 mo)
this is the first time I've ever done a LO w/o a picture.... I just had to remember this moment...it was way too precious!
Annie papers by Sara Ellis (me)
paisleys (colored in) from Tiny Village of Paisleys by Valerie Fowler
doodle heart, staples, and Sooo Cute from Girl Notes by Lauren Grier
font is Hockey is Lif

don't forget:
1) leave me some lovin' ..... I love reading all the comments
2) check back here often (hint hint...bookmark my blog)...you never know when a FREEBIE will pop up (hmmmmm, is one still available now???....scrolling down should become a hobby of yours)
3) Scrap yourself Sassy Silly!

Gobble Gobble...Happy Turkey day FREEBIE

Oh my..this is the longest I've gone without posting a little of anything on here. I'm such a blog slacker, aren't I? Bad me. I've just been busy working on my new ABC book for all of the grandparents for Christmas. I'm now working on "I" for Imagination and working on my newest Scrap Shop kit for DSC. If you don't know, I get to sell one kit a month since I'm on their Elements Team.

Before I share my goodies with you, I wanted to share a little tidbit from a "thankful" thread at TheDigiChick.
What I'm thankful for:
1. I am thankful for having a houseful of boys (including my big boy husband).
2. I am thankful I live in Phoenix with BEAUTIFUL weather (upper 80s this week & we've been hangin' in the backyard listenin' to Christmas tunes).
3. I am thankful that I am a SAHM and can see my little ones do crazy stuff every day.
4. I am thankful that my MIL watches the boys almost any time I want a break.
5. I am thankful that my husband only has a broken rib and didn't puncture anything crazy inside (Friday night stood on a stool, fell on it, pain for a few days, finally went to Urgent care Tuesday...yes, he wasn't too smart).
6. I am thankful that we have duct tape to make sure that Hudson doesn't remove his diaper late at night or early in the morning. (started this three nights ago & it's FABULOUS) :)
7. I am thankful I get to play with the digi chick chickies. How fun.

DSC has 4 links available right now for their November Mega Kit. So that means you can grab 4 Thanksgiving themed mini kits. How fun for you! The links are only up for a limited time, so scurry on over there now. My contribution isn't available yet, but please check back often so you can grab it. Here's a little preview of mine, "Family Dinner":

This week I've been working on my December Scrap Shop kit, "Frankie". I'm loving it. It's a little retro with great golds, blues, & greens so it's fun for a boy or girl. My little Thanksgiving goodie to you is the Frankie Sneak Peek Sampler. Woo-hoo! All of the papers have a great little texture to them.

As always, please leave me some lovin' when you grab my FREEBIES.

Now eat yourself silly today and enjoy your family time! We're heading over to both sets of my hubby's parents houses today (no cooking again for me...yay!). It will be another long holiday day for us. Hopefully all of the boys will do ok (including my hubby since his broken rib & medication made him get sick 3 or 4 times yesterday. So not fun for him if he can't eat all of the huge spreads.

I updated my blog header!

Late last night I updated my header with bits and pieces of several of my kits. I think it looks much more fun than it did before since I made that a few months ago and only with one of my very early kits. Now I just need to update my blog blinkie so it can coordinate with it. Ok....I don't reallyhave much else to say right now. I'm just a bit boring and will ramble ...sooooo...later!

*****WELLLLL...now that I look at it...the new Beta format of Blogger is making things difficult for me...my header has no disappeared so I have to find help to get it back on the page... oh-whoa-is-me

I want a design gig...stilllllll

I'm still hoping for a designer gig at a fab shop and I can only offer 1 kit/month at DigiScrapCentral. I get the teeny DSC gig as a bonus for being on their Elements Team. Soooo, I'm just going to offer some FREEBIES a little more frequently now. Right now I really love working on smudge papers. They are just so fun to play with. Because of this, I have a really cute little paper pack for you, "Annie". All 6 papers are textured, 3 are solid smudged and 3 have fab little smudged patterns. I really love my funkied one with flowers and doodles. Hopefully you will too.
Here it is:

Right now I'm too tired to post my recent LOs, but you are more than welcome to check them out here

new kit, new sampler for you

Doesn't the name "Perfect" just sound so fabulous??? Since I've wanted a great black & white kit for a while, I just decided to make one myself.....and, oh...I just love it (of course!). Why wouldn't I love something I made? I think that lately I believe that each kit I work on is my newest favorite. That's a pretty good sign I think too. As you can tell, it isn't only black & white, just the papers are. Most of the embellishments have sparks of color to liven it up a tad. Isn't it dreamy???? ok ok...enough already......here's my "Perfect" kit
