phew, I just got back from trying to shop for pants-(or trousers,jeans) for a teenager who is a boy and who I think doesn't know what he wants actually...LOL. He has outgrown all his "winter clothes" and now that it's getting colder needs "long pants".. he wants brown ones he says... YEAH right... I mean after looking at 20 different shades of brown(from tan to chocolate) he still says NO it's not the "right" brown...!!!! LOL, oh I'm still actually laughing because he came home empty handed and I picked up a pair of boots...hahahaha! OH well, I do have a thing for boots.. and knee length ones at that! I just couldn't walk past without trying this pair on- they are grey with buckles down the sides... and the last size left was MINE!!!! YIPPEEE...hahahaha. I have 2 pairs of black, 2 brown, beige and even a dusky pink(shhhh, don't say anything..LOL) and this just completes the collection (well for now that is.....hahahahahahaha).
I am sooo glad you all liked the "fancy pants ribbons".. keep a look out for the "whole batch soon".
On a more serious note I have been working on a series of kit's for my dear friend Shelby, and I think it has been one of the MOST difficult for me to do so far, and I don't mean technically, I mean emotionally. She has 4 "Angel baby" daughters that she has wanted to scrap for her memories album (and it took her a long time to get to this point). And for those that don't know, that "term" means babies that have died at birth or soon after and that have not spent much time on this earth. She searched a lot of the "stores" for kits for this purpose but found nothing that was suitable.. yes a lot of baby kits but all for "celebration and birth". I had to do a LOT of research for this and after many a tear reading posts and forums, it just made me realize how LUCKY I am! What we take for granted EVERYDAY is a gift to be thankful for. I have just finished the kits and am just putting the "finishing touches to them". I know that these are not "commercial kits" in anyway, but that is NOT the reason why I design, I do it from my heart and because I love too and this was something I just had to do.
The freebie today is in the "colour scheme" that I have used for the kits, and I decided to make some papers for you with them, there are 7 papers (6 patterns and 1 plain), 3 "glass" roses, and 3 "realistic" rose buds that I used for some of the elements in the kits. That is why I named the freebie "Rosebud Angels".. I hope you like them, sorry link is no longer available
Thanking you again for all the wonderful comments that I recieved yesterday.. it make's me all "fuzzy and mushy" inside...LOL
Hugs to you all until tomorrow. Love Kim
