Doc Brown - 20 FREE papers

No I didn't fall off the planet...but almost

If you have been collecting my series of papers you might have wondered what happen to me. Well I was sick for a while. Without going into details for all the world to see I had to take some time off and heal. I am feeling better physically but emotionally it took it's toll on me. I'm really lucky to have a few friends who were really there for me to let me, because my family was the pits during most of this ordeal.

OH and right when my drama all started I was invited by an awesome designer to be on her Creative Team! So I'm now designing for Man in the Moon Designs and don't forget about my first CT job AnnaBV Designs

So now that I'm feeling better I've been trying to get organized again and create some layouts. I designed some Christmas Cards for friends in return for letting them use the examples on my new Facebook Page and my new website I plan to launch in the new year.

I just finished our Christmas Card in the last two days and still haven't mailed them out yet! Guess everyone will get them after Christmas this year... oh well!

So onto the missing Brown Papers. I finished them right before Halloween, and used one in my Halloween card

I just zipped them tonight and decided I better come over to my blog and post them before next year *grin*

White Noise - 20 FREE papers

BusyBee asked so here are 20 off white, cream textured papers called White Noise. So what can I make for you?? Just let me know!

And on a better note anyone who's been following my quest to become a CT I was finally asked! They say good things come to those who wait, because when I saw this call my heart was really racing I love her work and just started playing around with two of her kits.

I don't know if I'm allowed to say who's team I'm on yet, so I'll just wait a day or so until the announcement is official. As soon as I see the announcement posted on I'll come back here yelling :-)

It really feels good to be apart of a creative team again. I miss designing websites and working with my clients but I do NOT miss the DRAMA of working in that office.

just ask me

So far a few people have left different comments about wanting different color papers. I welcome all those comments because after I scrap a bunch of layouts for myself I get a little burnt out and don't know what I should work on.

I am currently making white and beige papers which should be done in the next 2 days.

My current scrap project is a brag book for my son's Little Gym Teacher which I have to have finished by Friday afternoon to give to her at his last summer class. When I'm done I'm going to upload all the template files so you can whip up your own brag books.
Here is an example of the brag book, they are all block pages. I made the stitches so you get those in the template too.

wooo hooo

one of my layouts was selected to be in the newsletter.

So at least I'm getting noticed, just not good enough to be on anyone's CT (YET)

Moody - Free mini kit

I made this after my mini melt down.

please leave some lovin!


Well I guess I suck. I can't believe how upset I just got reading yet another rejection email on how sorry they are to tell me I'm not good enough to be on their creative team.
Honestly the tears came down my face like I just lost my job. I must be designing something wrong or my LOs are too busy or too big or too... too something, I just don't have the 'it factor' and it's really upsetting.
Makes me think I am wasting my time even trying to make my own kits...which by the way I refused to buy Commercial Use products and put them in a "kit" and say I made it. I am taking pictures, scanning and drawing my own elements! But it's taking a lot of time because my little guy needs most of my time.

ok I'm done crying

new look

I never really liked how my blog looked so I've been playing around with a new header design for a few days. Since I couldn't sleep I decided to finish it. My husband would say it's very Damselish.
