What a great weekend. Carlos and I went on a long overdue mini vacation. It was quite an adventure, and a funny one at that. We went to a city about 3 hours (by bus) away. It was inland from the beach, and up a mountain. Well what they consider a mountain here. Growing up in the Rockys I consider it more of a great big hill. Before we left everyone told us how Cold the place is. To make sure we dress warm, as it is still winter here. I was so excited to get to use my sweater that I wore on the plane coming from SLC.  We got there about noon, and I had to take off the sweater and just use a tee shirt because after getting off the air conditioned bus the air was quite warm. We ate a fabulous lunch, then went on the tour of the city the hotel provided.
The main attraction of the city is a beautiful garden clock. Here is the image from the internet.

Looks so nice right?  Weeeellllll. What you see is not what you get. The land around it is not a nice park type setting, It is a little, island in the middle of the  road. and the clock is so much smaller than we expected. The greenery is not so lush right now. It definately needs some love. On a positive note. We had a great time just the two of us. The kids managed to not destroy anything. I was a little nervous though, because the house was much cleaner than it was when we left. Suspicious? Maybe.

 OK.  Enough of my rambling. Before I left I had a ton of new releases by some fantastic designers.

Marie H had three fabulous releases. One was a Template collection. 
Here is my LO using one of her Heroes Templates. 

Marie H also released a fun Back to School kit called Land of Learning. 

Marie  also released a colab with Psychozoe, and Harmony Star, called Faith In Every Footstep.  This kit is sooo beautiful. I created two LOs using this one. 

AND for my newest CT - Snips and Snails Designs, I got to play with her new colab with Digilicious Designs.  The kit is called Girls Night and it is an Amazing kit. 
Its jam packed with goodies, and was perfect for photos of my
aspiring model daughter - Ashley.

AND Finally for your FREEBIE!!! I used a fabulous coalb from Sunny Day Scraps & Sweet Tomato Designs, called Pet Shop. to create the following WordArt Frames. PU, S4O, S4H only please.

I hope you enjoy your Freebie and as always would love to hear a quick thanks.


  1. Hi Brenda!

    Thank you so much for the 3 cute frames. I'm a cat person so that one will come in handy, but in the past I also had dogs and birds in my household while the kids were growing up.

    I'm new to your blog, so I'm going to poke around a while, and I will definitely be downloading your templates ... I am a template phreak! LOL! When I use one, I'll follow through and send you either a thumbnail of the LO or a link to it, OK?

    If I could make a teeny suggestion, please? In the future, would you please add your name, such as "momto7" or whatever you use, to your files? It makes it so much easier to keep track of files that way, and it saves me having to rename them all the time. I am a librarian by training, and I've found that labeling digital files simply and consistently helps a whole lot with filing and finding them later. This is just a suggestion, and I hope you will accept it in the same spirit it is offered.

    Thank you so much for your kindness in making your artwork and templates available.
