Isn't this sweet? I hadn't thought of using my "Ouch" pages for a get well card. Thank you soooo much Linda for sending this to me.I love the teddy bears..How cute! You made my day!:)
I am still sneezing and blowing my nose and my eyes water sometimes. Dh told me it takes a couple of weeks to get over a cold.Bummers..I still have about a week and a half to go.:( I guess I need to take my own advice and take one day at a time.:) As my Daddy always said when he was still with us....This too shall pass.hehe
Thank you ALL so much for the well wishes you have left for me.It means sooo much to me.:)

Valjs Doggy Layouts Plus - Freebie

This is Freedom right after we first got her.She is nine weeks old in these pics. Her toy is almost as big as she is.LOL I love the way the Qp turned out. :)


This is Freedom as a teenager. She wasn't as shaggy as she is now.Who would have known she would be so shaggy from looking at her as a pup? The tag on the chain says Pooch...cause that is what I call her when I come back into the house after going off to town etc. I say"Hey Pooch..where ya been?" hehe


This one has one of my favorite pics of Freedom in it.It's the bottom one.I love it cause it shows how little she was.She is following my Son and his shoe in the pic shows us how small she was. She is a good size dog now.Somewhere around sixty five pounds. She will be nine years old this summer.:)

Did someone say there were seven QP's not six? Well..I made this bottom one yesterday.I am having such fun with this kit.:) I hope you all will show me your layouts that you make from it.I love seeing the different things scrappers do with the same kit.:)

Be sure to scroll down to get your next Doggy QP:)



Valjs Doggy QP 2


Here is the second Doggy QP for you. If you would like to see my dog Freedom in this one..scroll down a couple of posts.:) Hope you like it!

Thank you ALL so much for the fantastic comments you have left for me.I am soo glad you like yesterdays QP. You are most welcome! Enjoy :)

    Valjs Doggy QP


    Here is the first of the six Qp's I have made using my Doggy Kit.If you would like to see this one with my dog Freedom in the frame..scroll down a couple of posts...there are four there.:) I will be giving out the QP's a day at a time and then offer the kit when I am finished with those. There are no two page spreads..they are individual pages made with the items I will be offering in the kit. Hope you like them and enjoy them as much as I do. I already have the six pages in my Doggy Album.LOL

    Thank you ALL so much for the wonderful comments you have made for the Blue Textured Kit.Hope you can use some of it.:) You are most welcome!

    I am putting this up this evening so I can sleep in tomorrow.Dh is off and I haven't been well..so I am gonna try to stay in bed longer to get caught up on some of the sleep I have been missing because of this cold. I feel like I might live now but am still not up to par.The evening gets here and I start feeling bad again.Bummers!

  • Valjs Blue Textured Ribbons and Flowers etc.


    This is the last part to the Blue Textured Kit.Yay!!LOL These are some ribbons that wrap around your frames. You can use these on other frames if you would like.Just make them the size you need...fill with the paper of your choice..then just paint a darker strip using the same color of your paper...along the outer edges. The angled ribbons are for the circular frame. I added some flowers with the papers for this set.I also gave you the template for them.You can fill these with your paper of choice and add them to any pages you would like. :) Personally ..I would keep one copy with the kit and make a copy for my elements folder.Otherwise the elements get lost in the kit and are only available if you just happen to open the kit and are reminded they are there to use.KWIM?

    Thank you ALL so much for the wonderful comments you have left for me. I sure appreciate your doing that. You are most welcome.:)

    I am feeling slightly better this morning.At least I think I could possibly live now.LOL Thank you for your well wishes. :)

    Not much to tell.I spent most of yesterday..either laying on the sofa and falling asleep while watching TV..or laying in my recliner and doing the same.LOL I needed it after that rough night I had trying to breathe and sleep at the same time.:)

    Thank you ALL so much for the wonderful comments you have left for me.I sure appreciate your taking the time to do that.You are most welcome!
    I am still not feeling well today.I still have a sinus cold and now my upper teeth on the left side are hurting from the pressure.Bummers! I woke up at three A.M. and got up so my DH could sleep.He has to go to work and with me tossing and turning and blowing my nose and moaning...well..I thought I would be kind and suffer alone.LOL If I didn't hurt somewhere or feel bad..I would think something was wrong.hehe
    Is everyone okay with the new size I am offering now? I would love some feedback.:)

    Valjs Doggy Layouts


    I couldn't wait to show you what is in store for you when I get the rest of the Blue Textured Kit done.:) I may be the only one who is thrilled with these pages..which are only two of the four so far..but it makes me happy.:) This is my dog Freedom.She is part wire haired terrior.Can you tell?LOL She's due to be trimmed for the summer real soon.We got her nine years ago this summer at the pound.I named her Freedom because we set her free from that awful cage she was in.:) She was soo excited to see me and kept trying to get out of the cage to me.I told Dh ..that's the one I want!:) We had gone to get a companion for me when I had to quit working and was gonna be a SAHM. My kids were grown by then and had jobs etc. Freedom has been such a fantastic friend to me.:) She looked just like another dog we had when the two of us first got married and she has the same kind of temperament too.She is smart as a whip (Mom's saying ) hehe. She doesn't destroy anything in the house.I can leave a bag of garbage out on the floor..untied all day if I want to and she won't touch it...can you ask for more?LOL We had two pet parakeets that were allowed to fly around the house if they wanted to.They would land on the floor in front of her and all she would do is look at them. They are gone now...one died from getting attacked by a dog someone brought over.Bummers! The other one died from lonliness when he was gone.It kept picking it's feathers off until it got sick.:( They had been together for years and years. I had read somewhere that birds will do that from boredom or lonliness.:(
    Freedom has a set of jingle bells that are on the wall by the back door.We taught her to ring them when she wanted to go out and that was nine years ago..she still rings them today.:)
    I wanted to show you some of the items that are gonna be in the Doggy Kit.Some of them are on these pages.There are some more that aren't shown.:)
    Well..that's it for me today.Let me know what you think about this kit.:)

    Valjs Blue Textured Elements 1

    Here's the first set of elements for this kit. I have another set of some darker ones and then the silver frames like the ones on the QP to this kit. Hope you like them.:)

    Thank you ALL so much for the wonderful comments you have left for me.I sure appreciate your taking the time to do that.:) You are most welcome.Enjoy!

    DH has the next two days off so I don't know how much computer time I will have..but I will put up the next set of elements tomorrow morning...so be sure to stop back by.:)
    Not much else to tell...so I will get right to the freebie for today.

    Valjs Blue Cloth Textured Paper




    Here is the last paper for the set.It has a cloth texture to it. I will be adding the elements for this kit tomorrow. Then I have another kit I am anxious to show those of you who are dog lovers.:) I LOVE the way the Qps have turned out.:) So..be sure to check back.!!

    Thank you ALL so much for the fantastic comments you have left for me.I sure do appreciate your taking the time to do that.I know this set hasn't gone as well as some of them have..and I appreciate all of your support.Some days I have a hard time coming up with any ideas at all and then suddenly something pops in my head and I run with it.LOL

    I was made aware that the link to the first Easter QP stopped working.I fixed the link and it is working now.:)

    I had a nice easy day yesterday playing on my paint program making a doggy kit with Qps. Not much else got done cause I was having fun!!LOL I just hope I haven't copied someones ideas that I am not aware of. With all the designers out there using the same objects on the same paint programs..I can see how easy it would be to do the same thing someone else has done unintentionally. KWIM? It makes me nervous sometimes to try different things cause someone out there is gonna accuse someone out there of doing something they haven't done on purpose. Let the fighting begin!!LOL

    Valjs Blue Textured Paper


    Here is the third paper from this set.It has a slight texture to it.:) I used this one to make the flowers on the QP for the other day...only I hadn't added the texture then. Click on the preview for a closer look:)

    Thank you ALL so much for the wonderful comments you have left for me.I sure appreciate your taking the time to do that.:) You are most welcome! Enjoy!

    We had a cookout at our home yesterday.Mom.. and all my kids and their kids were here.It was really nice weather too.Our grandkids got to play on the swing DH built for them and they played out back most of the time they were here.:) DH grilled hamburgers and hot dogs and we had all the side dishes for them.Mmmm it was really good too.I LOVE anything grilled.:)

    I got a chance to play on my paint program and made some more flowers.I will put them up after this set is done. I wanted to finish this paper pack first.I know it should be great with the mens pages. That's what I had in mind anyway.:) I may make some elements using these pages....that is if you would like them.Let me know if you want me to continue on this set. Maybe some of those glassy elements that are like the ones on the QP before last???.

    I hope you all had a wonderful Easter! :) If you would like to tell me how your weekend went.I am all ears...or should I say eyes?LOL

    If you would like to use this one....these are in the larger size. 2400x2400.

    Two Thousand Years Ago Today :)

    Valjs Blue-gray Paper


    Here is another paper from this pack. Click on preview for a closer look. :)

    Thank you ALL so much for the wonderful comments you have left for me.I sure appreciate your taking the time to do that.It means sooo much to me.:) You are most welcome.Enjoy!

    This week has been sooo busy for me. I asked DH to add some shelves to the closet in our office and I now have another long shelf above the other one.It's a regular closet but had a lot of space between the shelf where you hang your clothes and the ceiling.He added another shelf..just like it...except this one didn't have the hanging rack...it was just the storage one.You know..those white wire shelving you can get from Lowe's or Home Depot for closets? Anyway...he also built me some shelves for the sides of the closet...for baskets etc to sit on. Right now I have just regular boxes..but give me time.LOL That shelf alone has added sooooo much more storage space.Sooooo I asked him if he could do the same thing in our son's closet in his bedroom.It's about the same size as the closet in this room. ..and he has a LOT of stuff.:) It takes a lot of time taking everything out of two closets and putting them back in.Yesterday DS and I went through his clothes and collected a whole garbage bag stuffed full of clothes to go to the thrift store. Perfectly fine clothes..he has just outgrown them.No sense keeping clothes that don't fit when you have a small closet.Right? Dh was too tired after work last night to work on it though..so everything that was in the closet ..is on DS's bed.He is sleeping on the couch right now. It will be worth it all when we get it finished.:) I know what we will be doing this evening.LOL

    Valjs QP 3-19-08


    Here is a QP I made using the paper from yesterday. I wanted to show you what can be done with it. The flowers were made using the second paper from the set. Hope you like it.:)

    Thank you ALL so much for the wonderful comments you left for me. I sure appreciate your taking the time to do that. You are most welcome.:)

    My youngest son and family came over and spent yesterday evening with us.We watched two movies. That took up most of the evening.:) One of the movies was Disney's "Enchanted". It just came out on DVD this week.Carrie..my eldest Grand daughter wanted it for her bday and we got it for her. It's really a cute movie.:) That was the quietest my two youngest Grand daughters have been.hehe..they sat and watched the whole thing with us.:) Not much else to tell ..so I will get right to the freebie.

    This one is in 2400x2400.

    Valjs Blue Textured Paper 3


    It looks like the 8x8's won this round.:) This is the third paper from a four pack I made.I thought to make it easier for those of you who have dial up...I would do a paper at a time. Hope this helps some.:) This paper can be used all by itself..add a frame or six (hehe) and some elements and you have a new LO. I love this color of blue...hope you do too.:)

    Thank you ALL so much for voting.I had some scrappers ask me in the past about changing and with a year and a half of elements made with the 1200x1200 size..and my puter getting bogged down with the larger sizes...I was reluctant to change. You know that saying....you can't teach an old dog..new tricks.LOL Oh well..change is good..they say.:) Now if I could get DH to change my slow computer to a newer faster one...maybe change wouldn't be so bad after all.LOL

    Yesterday was my eldest Grand daughters thirteenth bday.Happy Birthday Carrie.:) I thought I would say that today since I didn't post yesterday. Wow! She is a teenager now. Time sure flies.huh?

    DH and I went to Walmart a few days ago and bought a bike for me to ride. You should see me...well..maybe not!!LOL We have a new park in town that you can take your dogs for a walk and it's really nice..not too many hills.:) Christy (DD) wants me to go with her to walk our dog, Freedom.Those of you who are regulars to my blog know about my bad ankle.Anyway..I am not able to walk long distances without a brace and even then my ankle gives out on me etc etc.:) So...I rode my new bike while Christy walked Freedom. Freedom loved it..BTW...and I had fun trying to balance on a bike again. I was half way around the trail before I realized I had the handle bars backwards.HEHE.:) Don't you hate that.LOL I was wondering why my toes kept touching the tire.:) Talk about an old dog and new tricks.LOL The park was sooo full of people this last Sunday.I don't think I want to go on Sundays any more...I would speed up..just to have to slow down or stop to avoid hitting someone. If they only knew it was my first time to ride in years (The stationary bike doesn't count.LORL ) they would have been watching out for me.:) I don't know about anyone else..but it was fun to feel the wind in my hair again.:)

    Gonna leave this page up for another day or two.:)

    Good Morning Everybody!:)
    I wanted to let you know that the link to the page in my previous post got messed up somehow this morning. But..I do want to let you know that I was able to count the votes before that. I got up early this morning and checked my comments on 4shared (it was working fine then) and I am keeping a tally sheet..so we haven't lost any votes yet. I am going to leave this page up until Wednesday morning ...just so everyone that wants to vote..can.They may have been busy this weekend. So far it looks like the 8x8's are ahead.:) I have five-stay....3 no preference...and ten change to 8x8.
    If you are wondering what this is all about..scroll down to the previous post and read about it. I am in the process now of fixing the link.There were 127 dwnlds when I last looked.:) Thank you ALL so much for helping me with this decision.:)

    Please Read Before You Download :)

    I've had some requests to make my QPs larger for you.They wanted them at 3600x3600 dpi. But my puter has a really hard time with that size...but I can go to 2400x2400...and thought I would try this one out on you to see what you think.Do you like this size better? Please let me know your preferences.:) They said it will only show a 4"x4" if I do 1200x1200 like I have been doing.I guess it loses resolution at that size when they try to expand it for printing. Please be patient with the dwnld speed...since this is a larger file..it may take longer to dwnld.I really would like some feedback on this..as I don't want to lose any scrappers because of this change.:) Thanks for your input!! Oh..the preview is still at 1200x1200..I tried to save some size for the file.It took me almost five minutes to upload the file to 4shared...so like I said..be patient.:)

    The majority will rule this one..so be sure to let me know which one you prefer!!!

    Thank you ALL so much for your wonderful comments on my Easter QPs.:) You are most welcome!! Enjoy!

    We had storms last night and this morning. Atlanta had a tornado go through downtown last night.It hailed a tiny bit here at the house too. You really had to look for it though. The lightning was pretty rough.We ran around the house unplugging things as fast as we could. Especially our computers and microwave.LOL Can't live without those.hehe

    Ms.Kittie's Layouts


    I was pleasantly surprised by an e-mail from Ms.Kittie this morning.She sent me the layouts she had done with my Easter pages. This is of her seven year old son.Isn't he a cutie?:) How sweet!! My Grand daughter would just love to have that spiderman shirt.:) Thank you soooo much Ms.Kittie for sending them to me.I absolutely LOVE seeing my QPs filled with your wonderful pics.:)
    I had about five computer viruses this morning I had to take care of.Be careful if you go to those free unlocker programs for a dwnld.I went searching for an unlocker program for my Mom and all I had to do is click the link to the site and got the bugs.Bummers! Anyway..I will see if I can find something I can give you tomorrow.:) If not..have a fantastic weekend!!

    Here is a 2 pic page for you using the same elements as yesterdays.:) I noticed that yesterday's was liked pretty well and since I had all these at hand.Thought I would go ahead and make another one. A lot of you like having more than one photo cut out.:) Hope you like it.!

    Lisbet...please email me at gagirl002@yahoo.com and please put "vjscraproom" in the subject area so you don't end up in the spam pile.LOL

    DH was off yesterday and I slept in again.:) Had a rough night and when I finally got to sleep I slept like a log.:) I've been taking it a little easy the last couple of days...cause the top corner of DD's car door hit me right next to my backbone between the shoulder blades the other night when we went out shopping.It has really been sore.:( The muscles across the center of my back are aching.I have had hot baths..ice packs etc and it is still a little sore today. I had gotten out of my DD's car and turned around toward it to make sure the seat belt wasn't in the doorway when for some reason her door started shutting on it's own.I didn't ask it to do that.LOL Anyway...here is the freebie if you want it.:)

    Valjs Red And Gold QP 3-9-08


    This is my youngest Grand Daughter Destiny.Isn't she so pretty..all dressed up for Christmas?Her Mom and Dad buy her and her sisters a new dress for Christmas every year.This one had a red velvet top and the skirt had a plaid design. Very pretty! I didn't have anything to give you as a freebie until a few minutes ago.I was playing with some of the stuff I had made a while back and decided to make a Qp with it...then I found this pic and it is perfect for this page.:) If you would like to have the QP made from this page..look for the dwnld link at the end of this post.

    Thank you ALL so much for the wonderful comments you have left for me.I sure appreciate your taking the time to do that.You are most welcome.!:)

    Dh had the day off today and let me sleep in late since the time changed.:) By the time I got up ..got them breakfast and got in the office..it was late morning and I figured...I would wait til morning.I am doing this post tonight so I can sleep in again tomorrow if I get the chance.

    Valjs QP 2-27-08



    Here is another QP using my satin flowers. I was kinda stuck in this color theme the week I made this one.LOL My Mom gave me an old lace tablecloth..I scanned it and then enlarged it to make some background papers.How pretty..I love it!:) I added my satin flowers and a glitter frame and I think that is all that was needed. Simple huh?:) Hope you like it!

    Thank you ALL so much for the fantastic comments you leave for me.I sure appreciate your taking the time to do that.:) You are most welcome!

    It stormed again last night.Had tornado warnings here.My youngest son and family rushed over here cause we have a basement.:) But that part of the storm passed by us.Yay! We went outside and watched the last part of it.It was dark out and we saw the last of a huge whitish cloud ...and behind it the sky was full of stars.I sure wish I had thought to get my camera.It was amazing:)

    Valjs Glitter Doodles


    Finally...here they are. :) This is only a few...to show you the shapes.Each shape comes in these different colors. If you count all the doodles..there are twenty two of them. Just not twenty two shapes..clear as mud right?hehe If you are confused..you will know what I mean when you unzip the file.LOL If you want to see how they look on a page...scroll down.:)Oh..each one is in individual png and psd so you won't have to figure out how to get them off of a single page.

    Thank you ALL so much for the wonderful comments you left for me.I am sooo glad you like my pages.You are most welcome.!

    We had more storms in the middle of the night.Freedom..my dog...scratched at our bedroom door and wanted in..she hates storms.I had to" take a small trip" you know that trip too...hehe and when I came back..she was laying on my side of the bed.LOL The bad part of that is...she pants really hard when she is scared and the whole bed was bouncing.I didn't get back to sleep until the storm passed and she settled down. When I finally did get to sleep..I didn't even hear DH get up to get ready for work.I woke up just before he had to leave...soooooo..this post is later this morning.I hope you like these doodles and have fun using them.:)

    Here is one for the boys! It looks like yesterday's only blue. Hope you like it.:)

    Thank you ALL so much for the wonderful comments you leave for me.Makes my day!!:) You are most welcome.!

    Dh was off yesterday and spent the morning working in his woodshop.Then in the afternoon he asked me if I wanted to get out of the house and I said ..sure. We went to the thrift store to drop off a few things...and then to Goodwill to see if we could collect new stuff.LOL I like to go to their knick knack/what not section to see if they have anything I just can't leave there.LOL I have a collection of white ducks on my tall cabinet in the kitchen and I have a collection of cookie jars on top of my other cabinets.I can have really cute stuff for hardly any money.:) I just can't see paying top price for something I can clean up and it looks brand new.:) We went to Big Lots and I got several of those 8x8.. $4.00 albums.Only this time they had some for cats too.How cool!!It has boney fish on the inside and outside cover with cat paw prints.If you remember I told you they had one for dogs too.Now I have two for dogs and two for cats and some others for my family albums. :) I told DH...if I had gone to Michaels to get those..it would have cost me $12.99 apiece...so I actually saved money.LOL

    Valjs QP 3-5-08


    Here is one I made yesterday using some of the doodles I was telling you about yesterday. I showed this to my DD and she asked me if I was gonna make one for a boy....soooo tomorrow you get one for a boy.LOL It will have this same layout..just changed the frilly mat to a more suitable one.The background is done in blues and the glitter swirls are green. So..be sure to stop back by tomorrow for that one.:) I still have a few things to do to get the glitter swirly doodles finished for you and I wanted to add a couple more..so I plan to have those ready on Friday.:) Hope you like this one. Can you tell I love the raspberry colors?hehe

    Thank you ALL so much for the fantastic comments you leave for me.I sure appreciate your taking the time to do that.:) You are most welcome! Enjoy:)

    We had the storm come through and it rained most of the day yesterday.It got rough for a little while but not as bad as they said it could be.Not in our area anyway.I think a little further north of us there was damage.I haven't seen the news about it yet..so there isn't much I can tell you right now.It got real windy and the rain beat against the windows..but I didn't feel the need to go to the basement.:) I was in a storm one time that had a tornadoe in it.Dh and I sat on the couch in our double wide (this was years ago when the kids were young) and we heard what they call the noise that sounds like a train.We even asked each other if that is what we thought it was. Well..the next day we drove down the street and all the pine trees in that certain area were chopped off.All you could see was stumps sticking up in the ground. It was too close for comfort for me. I was on my way home from work that day and the storm was towards my home..and I looked out of my rear view window and the sun was shining bright behind me..in front of me..dark ominous clouds.I rushed to get to the house...while limbs from trees missed my car. All I could think of at the time was to get home.I probably should have gone towards the light.hehe.

    Valjs Cruise QP

    Here is a QP I made to match my Dad's shirt.:) I had this pic of him on a cruise he and my Mom took several years ago.She couldn't recall just how long ago it was...so I didn't put the date on it.:) It was a panoramic pic and this is the only way I could figure to show those kind.Click on the pic for a closer look.:) Daddy went to be with the Lord..Aug.9th 2001. Just before the 911 attacks in N.Y. I really miss him..but KNOW I will see him again some day.:)

    Thank you ALL so much for stopping by while I took my little mini vacation.:) I sure appreciate your leaving some luv for me.:) How sweet!!

    I have been sooo busy this weekend..cleaning..bday party...sorting through stuff..etc. Sleeping in...yay!! :) I made two albums for my sisters 50th bday.One for her and one for me.I gave hers to her already and she really liked it.Then I added a few pages to Christy's(DD) cat album. I used some of the quick pages I have collected the last year and a half. I don't know if you know it or not..but I LOVE QP's.LOL I have to back off of the printing them out though...I printed about thirty five pages this weekend.hehe. My sisters album has sixteen pages in it. With my album of her bday and her album of her bday..that alone was thirty two pages. Then I added some for the cat album and this one too.Whew! My printer got a work out.LOL But I had FUN!!!!!:)

    Not sure if you want this one or not..but if you do......
