Monday Mini

Sorry I couldn't get this out yesterday! Not only did blogger not let me upload, but I couldn't get the file uploaded on 4shared either. It was so weird. Hopefully it'll all work out better today.

Before I get to the download, I thought I'd tell you a little bit about the weekend. We packed up and left on Friday night after work and stayed at DH's Parents' house. We didn't actually leave for the beach till the next morning. The whole way there the clouds started getting thicker and thicker. Although it was cloudy, foggy, cold and PACKED! The beach wasn't too bad. There were a couple things going on while we were there. A car show, which are always neat. And, an awesome kite show! They were flying all these huge kites. (at this point the camera was still packed). We got our room and relaxed a bit then headed off to the cold beach to let Madison sink her toes into the sand. At least we can say that she touched the ocean on her first trip to the beach. Unfortunately, we didn't get any pictures of that either. We had planned on going back out again before we left and we'd get pictures then, but we never made it.

The next day, we woke up to some clouds but by the time we were ready for brunch and packed to leave the clouds had left behind a beautiful blue sky. Madison fell asleep on the way to the beach and we were on a somewhat crunched schedual to get back, so, once again, no pictures of Madison's first trip to the beach. However, we did get some pictures at the waterfall that we stopped at on the way home.

Alright, I bet you are ready for that freebie now! I'm hoping to offer a little mini kit every Monday. This one includes 3 papers, two ribbons and 1 stitching. It's made up of some extra elements from my Day and Night kit. Click the image to download.

Let me know what you think, and check back next week for another mini!

I also received another "Love Your Blog" award from Cindy at My Little Corner of the World. Head on over there to check out her blog.

Thanx so much Cindy!

Last week, before I left for my vacation, I helped out a friend by making her a blinkie and setting up her new template on her blog. You should go visit Leigh's Blog Heartfelt Perfections, and check out the new look. Don't forget to take a peak at her new Blinkie and grab the freebie kit that I made it from: In Jesus Name.

Would you like me to make you a blinkie? Feel free to send me an email (click the 'email me' located under the header).

Just a couple more things..

Dee over at Creative Delusionz Scraps has a little weekly activity and if you're one of the first 5 to answer her questions you get a neat little tag made by her. She calls it "I'm Clever". Last week she asked:

An example: If 24 H in a D = 24 Hours in a Day, then what are these?
(1) 50 S of the USA
(2) 21 D on a D
(3) 26 L in the A
(4) 64 S on a CB
(5) 366 D in a LY

I'm not going to give you guys the answers because I want you to figure them out!! (and don't cheat by getting them from Dee) I happened to be one of the first 5 to answer these ones and this is what I got for being so 'Clever'.

I thought it was cute! It's a perfect picture of Madison too! Hehe, she's always sleeping with her behind in the air like that!

Finally, I just wanted to show off my new Ginger Scraps CT Avatar that our lovely Designer put together:

Alright everyone, I think that's it for today. I should have saved some of this stuff for later this week. Hehe!! Have a great week!
