A new freebie to start off May!

We have a wonderful CT who I would not take a million dollars for her! We are swamped with all that has happened in the family and what we have to do (go and clean out the apartment now) and she has been a wonder and made some quick pages for me to be able to give away. They are from our kit, Sun Kissed, (link to our kits) and she even did a layout to show everyone how great the page looks when done! I will start with her LO because I love it!! I was also very pleased to see that she created the page in 2 sizes, and either could be rotated in any direction, including upside down and it would still make a great page!! Phreyfall also has a blog, (link at left in list or here) so check it out as well!

These are just the first of a few freebies she has put together from our kit to give out so keep watch in the upcoming days...and a surprise contest to win a kit later this month!! Coming soon... but Shhhhh!!! It is a surprise and I am not supposed to talk about it.

Download here!
(please leave some love here on the blog if you download!)

Don't be surprised when you get there, the other "earlier" freebies are still up if you want them also...if you have them already, then just take the Sun Kissed QP's!

Birthday today for hubby!


Having just gotten home from work, I have to grab some lunch and then head to the store to buy a nice dinner for Michel for tonight. It is his birthday today. (Shhhhh don't tell anyone I told you but he is 59 today.) I think I will pick up his favorite meal, beef, so that means a steak, potatoes for french fries, fresh green beans, tomatoes and something to make a cake with. Reminds me, I have homework to get done for my french language class tomorrow morning also. Guess I don't get to prepare the freebie I keep thinking about, nor do much else here today!

Thank you all...

Michel and I would like to thank everyone for their expressions of condolences with phone calls, cards, e-mails... and all of the prayers being offered for all of the family. The funeral services were Friday with a small gathering of family and close friends and after going to (brother of Michel) Didier and Isabelle's where there were things to eat and drink while we all conversed. We spent 3 days with family, talking, remembering, laughing and crying. We are now back at home and routine must return to it is true what they say. Life goes on.

In memory of...

Yesterday was a very sad day for our family, my mother-in-law passed away. It was a shock, and we are still trying to come to terms with it. She was a wonderful lady. Elegant always, perfect hostess and lovely guest. It was like a treat when we would go to visit her, she would cater to our likes, wants and needs, letting us know how special we were in her life. This was not the last visit we had with her, but it was the last time I actually took photos. We always think we will have more time with those we love, but the time passes too quickly and death comes without warning.
