    Valjs Lavendar Crumpled Floral Paper


    Linda requested Lavendar..here it is.:) Hope you like it. Be sure to click on the preview to get a closer...better view....cause the small preview doesn't do it justice.:) I just noticed that the paper in the zip file says purple..not lavendar...I am not going to go to the trouble of changing that...you can if you want to.LOL.

    Not a whole lot happening around the house right now.We met our youngest son and his wife and his oldest daughter at the Golden Corral for supper last night.I couldn't believe the line..it was out the door ....and they have those line divider thingys too.LOL I know..there is a name for them..but I can't think of it right now..I am still half asleep.:) Anyway..my DH said it reminded him of the lines at Walt Disney World.hehe..We were hungry for our dinner by the time we finally got it.:) That was pretty much the exciting part of the day. I did laundry again...but I will spare you the details of that.LOL

    Another Link Fixed.:)

    I want to thank Lynne for letting me know that one of the links wasn't working.In the process of fixing the link..I noticed that the page was done before I started adding .png files to my folders...well..now there is a .png file for those of you who would have loved to have it and couldn't use it because it was .psd.:)How cool is that?LOL

    It is the purple Valentines QP from January 4.So..just go to the side bar...click on January...scroll down to the 4th and dwnld the page in the usual way.:)I don't know what happened to the link..it had disappeared from 4shared completely..so I had to make it all new.That has happened a few times from this same page.Someone out there must really like it.LOL

    I won't have a new freebie today.I just got a call from my DIL and the family will be here in just over an hour and I have a gazillion things to do in the meantime.:)

    For your info..the Merium Webster Dictionary added that word "gazillion" to it this year.If I am thinking of the right word.LOL

    Have a wonderful day and hopefully I will have something new for you tomorrow.:)

    Hugs,

    Valjs Purple Butterfly QP 7-25-07


    Here is another one for those of you who love purple.:) I put this together the other day thinking I was gonna put it on the blog..but just didn't get around to it until today. Hope you like it.!

    Thank you ALL for the wonderful comments you left for me this week.It's nice to know I was gone but not forgotten.:) You are most welcome !

    Today is my Dh's last day of his vacation.We are gonna pack as much into it as we can.I need to get groceries into the house..he has to weed eat the yard.Our son mowed it while we were gone so that helps some.:) Then we have to balance the check book to see where we are financially after the trip.LOL I got all of our stuff unpacked and put where it belongs and we are feeling a little more rested now.But that is before we do all of these things today.LOL
    My Dh may be a little busier this coming week.His Asst.manager has been promoted to her own store ..this makes the fourth one he has trained ..that went on to their own stores.Cool eh?But that means he has to train a new one now...so his hours will most likely change some until he gets her where she feels comfortable on her own.
    I guess that is about all for now...so I will just put the Qp up for you....

    Here it is!!

    Valjs Red Teddy Bear Element

    Look what I made for you. LOL .Ain't he cute?:) I was playing around the other day and came up with this. I was pretty pleased with it...not sure what to do with the little guy..but..I am sure we can find something.:) He would love to go home with you.!! Be sure to click on him to see a bigger ...better view ..to help you decide.:)

    We got back from our trip to Fla. yesterday afternoon. We stayed at a Quality Inn Monday night and it had a heated indoor pool..so I was able to try swimming...which was always difficult with the metal in my ankle. The cold water always made it ache like a tooth ache and I couldn't stay in very long.We specifically looked for a hotel with a heated pool so we could enjoy our stay.It was really nice. They had a spa too.We took advantage of both.:) Now it's back to the grindstone.There's lots to do around the house before my DH has to go back to work Saturday morning. I just wanted to put a freebie up for you today and I will get back with more about our trip tomorrow...if I get the chance.:)
    Thank you all for the wonderful comments you left for me while I was gone.I sure appreciate your stopping by to say hi and wishing us a nice...safe ...trip...oh and you are most welcome for the QP.I am soo glad you like it.:)

    Okay..I know this is different..and that is what I was going for.LOL Hope you like it!
    My Dh and I just decided we are going to see his parents in Florida this weekend and Monday.He has a week off this week starting tomorrow evening.(Friday) We will leave tomorrow after he gets off of work..then stay at a hotel overnight..(cause we both have bad backs and can't handle an eight hour trip without a break).Then we should be at his parents by noon on Saturday.We will leave there Monday afternoon and do the same thing in reverse.:) Hopefully I will be back by Wednesday. I am putting this up this evening cause I have to pack..get some groceries in the house for my DS and DD tomorrow and be ready to leave when my DH gets home. There are a lot of things that need to be done around the house and when we get back..if we have any strength left..we will tackle them.LOL

    Valjs Gelly Butterflies


    Here are some more butterflies I made.I put them on a yellow background to show you how they will look on your bright summer papers.:) Hope you like them !

    Thank you ALL for the wonderful comments you left me for yesterdays really red QP.:) I am so glad you like it.:) You are most welcome.

    My DH and I spent yesterday looking for a cell phone for him. We found out that the deal he was looking at online came with conditions...You had to have a lot of money.LOL So we went to every place we could think of that sold cell phones and we still came back without one...cause he wants one that is a PDA but he doesn't want to have to go with the two year internet service for seventy dollars a month. There are several deals he has looked at and they offer a free phone..but you have to sign up for the internet service to get it.Otherwise..it will cost him to buy the phone. I am soo glad I just want a phone that will allow me to call my family and friends and for them to call me.:) Mine is only fifteen dollars a month..and I can call anywhere any time...and it has roll over minutes...It is Net 10. I got it from Walmart.:)

    Well..here is the link to the butterflies.:)

    Thank you ALL for the wonderful comments you left me on the paper yesterday.I am soo glad you like it.You are most welcome.:)

    My DH took today off and not sure what we will do.No plans so far...the weather has been cloudy and rainy..so the grass is really growing..but really wet..so no mowing...wet grass on a hill is not a good thing for your feet.My son slipped on the grass one time and twisted his ankle and the only thing to stop the mower from going down the hill and across the street was his car parked on the curb...so...we don't do wet grass.:) I will have to let you know tomorrow..what we decided.

    Would you believe that I had this post done and ready to go this morning and took down the QP I had up? One of you got to it before I could delete it though.LOL I made this one real fast so I could have another one to put up for you.I thought this one would be great for those vacation pics ..I can just see a beach pic in here.:) The arrow goes from the journaling to the pic ..to point out that both of them go together.Hope you like it.:)

    I had another kaleidoscope Qp I was going to put up today..but with the amount of dwnlds for yesterdays being so low..I thought better of that.LOL I want to thank All of you who left me such sweet comments for it though. That is what I call..being supportive..You Rock!!

    I hope you had a wonderful July 4th. What did you do ? We went to a movie matinee and then out to eat...came home and watched a few fire works around the neighborhood.That was pretty much my day.:) My Dh wanted to see the new "Transformers" movie. The graphics were soo cool...and I didn't sleep through any of it.It rather kept me on the edge of my seat.LOL But..there are a couple of places in the movie that I was uncomfortable with when I knew there were "little kids" in the theatre. I don't understand why they even felt it was necessary to add that part to the movie.They had to know that the little kids would want to see this.Hey..is that a soap box I am standing on?LOL Anyway..that is my opinion and this is my blog..so there.LOL
