Its Monday!

Its Monday!  The last few days of August has brought to us some cooler temperatures here in the holler, and we have much appreciated the break as the unrelenting sizzling heat has broke many records here this year.  Now if we could get just get some much needed rain!  Humans are funny people-we seem to never be satisfied with what we have!

Today has been a lazy day for me and I really have accomplished nothing but I have been daydreaming about how I wish Gary would someday agree that we need to build onto our house.  I was cleaning out my email folders and came across this photo of a darling little house...I wish my house looked like this!  He could build onto the front of the house and make my little house look like this doll house!  I love all that pretty gingerbread!

See what I mean about "never being satisfied".  My house is perfectly fine and I barely can keep it clean now but still I want more!  After I cleaned the bedrooms last week (walls, ceiling, linens, curtains, knick-knacks...everything) I spent the next couple of days just taking it easy as  the scrubbing caused an old shoulder injury to flare up again.  I did manage to clean up my pc and have most everything moved to my external hard-drive now.  700 GBs and I have it nearly full now!  I have tons of digital products, and many I have never used, but yet I continue to buy and download more!  No wonder my husband can not understand when he sees all the PayPal transactions.  "But just look at the memories I am preserving for my family" is my argument to him, lol!  This is what I have made so far with that adorable GONE FISHING BUNDLE by Fly Pixel Studios I showed you last week!

And here are some of the goodies I have made with this month's SBE-U Build It!-Simply Feminine Collection with my adorable Granddaughter and her Mother!

Kiimi's new SIMPLE BEAD ALPHAs-WHITE and BLACK and BEADED WORD SETS for BOYS and GIRLS are so easy to use and add extra special touches to layouts!
(You can visit MY DST GALLERY for a full list of credits forall of these layouts.)

Each month SBE features a different Scrapbook-Elements designer in association with the monthly newsletter which is sent out mid-month to our newsletter subscribers. The Designer of the Month will have some special items for you that will be available at 30% off during her month. Only items in the Designer of the Month category apply. Each designer's month will run mid-month to mid-month. Kimberly Stewart is the Designer of the Month for August 2010.

I found another gift for you while I was working on my pc!  
Rina's "Bellisima" is an exquisite collection of antique metals, veined Italian marble and trailing vine leaves. Colors blend together beautifully from slate blue, olive green and creamy marble to warm brick red, which all together bring you a classic romantic collection to exquisitely enhance your treasured photos.
Enjoy the freebie, and see ya soon!
