This quickpage was made with my "Shimmer" kit, the Divine Diva Deal at Divine Digital this week. Grab it while you can for $2 and if you do, don't forget that I will send you the link to download the add on paper for free!
Well, today was my son's first Christmas program ever at his nursery school. I was so excited to see him sing with his class. But did he sing? No. He stood there like a statue. Doesn't that just figure! I'd post his picture but really he is just standing there starting into space whilst the rest of his classmates sing their little hearts out. Oh well, perhaps next year he'll be more festive.
I'll leave you today with a few more photos that I took lately and like. But before I do that I want to answer the question someone left in the comment section for yesterday's freebie. They asked why I like to scrap mainly black and white photos. Well, I do scrap color photos, too. But I just like black and white, especially when the images are taken with natural light. It is just a personal preference but it is in the back of my mind when I purchase digital supplies and I tend to stay away from kits or paper packs that wouldn't necessarily go well with black and white. Sometimes to get around that I sepa the photos, but in general I like cool tones in my kits and in what I purchase and make.
Now for some photos....
The first two are of my son Sam and his first Gingerbread House that we made....I call it the "flop house" as it looks kind of "floppy" and lopsided...
And this is Henry putting a full bowl of oatmeal on his head so he could wear the bowl as a hat. He is into hats these days. Makes anything into a hat if it can fit and stay on his head...
And this is Henry with his ear plugs in his little ears during his tubby.....this is that rare moment of happiness before he realizes they are in there and starts fussy for me to take them out. Oh, the fun of ear tubes!
Have a wonderful weekend with all your holiday preparations and festivities and shopping. Stop on back tomorrow and pick up another "shimmering" freebie!
These photos I took when my son, Henry, was getting ready to go into the operating room for his surgery. My husband looked at me like I was nuts taking pictures in the hospital and the hospital staff was nervous---I guess they thought I was taking pictures to sue them if anything went wrong! How do you explain that no, I'm just a scrapbooker, without having people look at you with that deer in the headlights look? Yes, I'm a scrapper and I scrap all the moments of my life, even the sad and scary ones like this one. My camera is often my security blanket. Having it with me helps me refocus on something more positive in times of stress. So this is Henry, attached to monitors via his little toes!
And this is happy Henry a week after his surgery:
Don't forget to pick up "Shimmer" today because I'll send you the add-on paper pack for free once I receive a copy of your invoice.
Now, here is the "treat" that I am giving not just because this is the featured Divine Diva Deal but also for the holidays. If you purchase this kit during the week it is the Divine Diva Deal, I will send you the add-on paper pack ($2 value) that matches this kit for free! After I receive your invoice confirmation I will email you back with a link to download the kit via my 4shared account. How does that sound? Well, I hope it sounds good because here is a preview of the add-on paper pack:
And I have two other new products in my store that are kind of for the holidays but kind of not. Decide for yourself.....The first is "Envy," a paper pack that is all shades of green. There are 24 papers total, 12 being solid and 12 being patterned. The second is "Red Lipstick" and it is just bursting with all the red shades of the lipstick tubes I love:
To celebrate my reappearance on my blog, I am offering a discount on Envy and Redlipstick that is good between today and January 1st. Receive each paper pack for 30% off with these coupon codes (remember to enter the code before moving on to the checkout process):
Now make sure you pick up "Shimmer" when it goes on sale tomorrow so I can send you your free paper pack! And I'll be back on Friday with a "Shimmer" freebie (the kit needs some frames, that is your freebie hint!)
