Valjs QP 8-21-07

Okay...I have no idea what color this is.LOL My family have looked at it and that is the first thing they ask me.:) I used a gradient fill on the frames..and I used the split shadow option on PI to make them look like the edges are lifted up from the background.I love the way it turned out.Hope you do too.:)

I wanted to let you know I am going to slow down on the freebies and my blog.It is getting increasingly difficult for me to come up with an "original" idea these days ..with all the designers that are out there now.After many ways can you put a frame on a square?LOL Plus..there are things...Great things ...going on in my personal life that I want to devote my time to.:) Any of you who know what it is to be led by the Spirit of the Lord..will understand where I am coming from.:) I have made such wonderful friends on here and as I am able I will come see you.I love each and every one of you.:)

Thank you ALL for the wonderful comments you have left for me.You are soo sweet to do that.I have enjoyed reading them all....on here and on 4shared.As I am able..I will put something up for you ..just to remind you I am still around.LOL

If you would like to use this one....

    Good morning, Val.

    I love this quickpage and I know just how I'll use it.

    I'm sorry to hear you are going to cut down on your blogging, but I understand, completely. This is a very time-consuming pastime and there are so many more important things in our lives which should be occupying our time. I'm glad you will be following your heart.

    I'll miss you, however. I love your visits to my blog and your cute little comments. I look forward to them and our race to post on DST.

    I hope you get a chance to do some scrapping and make some of your great freebies from time to time.

    Take care, and here's some big hugs.

    VAL I hope to get this to you without being interupted by the storm.. We have having some severe weather Here.. OHHH HUGS TO YOU!!!! IM GOING TO MISS YOU!!!! so please dont leave too much time between visits. I know what you mean about devoting your time to something good. I came to the realization that I am spending too much time from my family.. and so I am trying to spend equal amounts of time between my time, computer/design time, and family time. Time just moves faster than you think.. and then it totally gets away from you.. OHHH type faster.. its thundering bad... UMMMMMMMMMM Just want to tell you that I LOVE YOU VAL!!! You are sooo GREAT to me.. and have been since I started!!! You have been there for me when I needed it and Been there as a friend and as Mentor.. and for that I am in your debt.. and I'll will repay you by mowing your yard sometime LOL :) Alright its getting Windy now too.. I best get off here and say THANK YOU VAL!!! You ARE A HUGE INSPIRATION IN MY LIFE... And I will KEEP on striving to be a Great Friend like you have been to me.. and the WHOLE Online community.. and... ummm... See you tomorrow ;) HUGS!!!!! LOL :)

    Hi Val,

    thank you very much for the new QP! I love it :)
    I understand why you want to cut down a bit, it´s nearly unbelievable how productive you are! Every day a new freebie for us... You´re soooo generous! Thanks for all you do!
    Don´t have a bad conscience now when you think of your real life first, it´s the most important thing :)
    I will be happy to read a few words from you here every once in a while to see how you´re doing!

    Ohhh can I name that color then, like how they name all them lipsticks and nail polishes??? I would call it... erm... pashionate pansy! ok, so its not perfect, but it would pique people's interest...
    it's a beautiful template tho!

    Right on about slowing down my friend... I am so glad it's been laid on your heart - and it shows your heart is in the right place, dwelling on the most important people in your life, your family and personal friends. I've always said, if things are not good at home, how could I possibly go out and be good for the world? I think you've seen me back off now and again, and I think its what is meant in the bible when it says to get yourself in a closet for prayer... we all need time away to get closer to God, and to refresh.

    Your elements and creations are amazing Valinda, a definate gift. You have been so very generous and giving.. and we all love our VJ visits, and we'll still get them, but just a little less.

    I'm going to uplift you and your family in prayer, and I know that you will be so RICHLY rewarded for this... and you will have SO MUCH great stuff to blog.

    Thank you for the beautiful QP, Val! Family time is so important so I understand why you won't be on your blog as much. Take care and drop in when you can to say hello and let us know how you are.

    Stopping by to say hi and to leave a little love. I downloaded your fantastic textured elements the other day and left word. I am taking it easy, so my visits are spread out. I want to complement you on this so fantastic layout. Love the placement of the multiple photo placement along with that awesome color. Tell your family it is called beautiful because it is. Leavin LUV! XOXOXO
