Liiitle Friday!

The host of our local morning show on television calls Thursdays "Liiittle Friday" - I like that.  Not that Fridays are any different than any other day in my life now but when I was working, I always looked forward to Fridays as it was the last day of the work week!  Back in the days of my first marriage, Fridays were pay days and the last day of school for the kids so we would go out to McDonalds or get pizza, rent a couple of videos and stay up as late as we wanted... Fridays are a day we all look forward to so the term Liiitle Friday for Thursdays gets one excited for the upcoming weekend!

I went to bed early last night, about 9:00pm and then woke up early at 2:00am.  I was not really ready to start scrapping, nothing on the boob-tube worth watching and when I checked my email, I found a coupon from ArtsCow for a thirty page photo book for only $9.99 with free shipping!  Yippee!  I spent the next couple of hours picking out 30 of my favorite pages I have scrapped lately, and preparing them for the photo book.  As I have told you before, I use the Artscow Blank Cover Templates from Studio Wendy at SBG.  I prepared my book cover adding one of my favorite layouts to In Memoriam Papers by Kimberly Stewart and Rina Kroes, and then I prepared the page backgrounds using a simple white paper from the In Memoriam Set and a black paper from Rina's Almost Midnight PaperPack.

So that will be the front cover of my photo book with 30 layouts with my Grandchildren, Isaac and Ava, the children of my youngest son Matthew.

As I was making my selections to include in the above photo book, I came across some of last years freebies that I had posted.  When I cleaned up my blog and corrected my labels, the links for some of past freebies were removed but I want to make sure they are available to all my new followers, so as I come across them in hard drive, I will be adding them to my blog once again!  Today, I have two quick pages I made last spring using Spring Has Sprung by Kimberly Stewart.

Kimmi says that the tender, soft shades of spring, packed with lots of flowers is perfect for any of your precious photos of babies, girls, boys and of course spring, for your layouts, craft projects, cards and more! The alphabet adds a bit of glitz to your layouts with beautiful pink, emerald, and light topaz gem stones timmed in sparkling gold.  I adore this kit and often use the elements and alphabets on my pages so I know you will want to add this kit to your collection!  I hope you enjoy the quick pages!
