BLAH *buggy* Weekend

OH my WORD- I caught Wayne's BUG!! ( now definitely not as cute as Mrs Miles freebie Bug LOL)- ARRGGGH, We cancelled going out with our friends on Friday night because Nathan made the Schools 1st Cricket team and was playing his first match EARLY on Sat. morning - so there was NO way his parents would have been able to get him there and support him with major hangovers-hahahahaha. So we did the sensible thing and cancelled. THANK GOODNESS-ROTF- I swear I would probably have *pooped my pants* on the dance floor in the early hours-LOL (yeah you know- tooo many tequilas, throwing the body around-mmmmm yeah OK) - I landed up in the Loo for most of the early morning and ran a really GOOD temperature the rest of the weekend- BLAH! Its the first time I've been sick in a year and I think I'm my own worst patient -hahahaha. *I'm TOUGH- nothing Wrong with me*-blah blah blah ( you know that one ??_hahahaha). But I landed up back in bed sleeping the temps off which was a good thing ( got rest too). Feeling MUCH better today- just a little washed out- but I seem to have passed it onto my friend Loryn who still came around Friday afternoon so I could do her make-up for her, SORRY GIRL! hahahaha- It's WAYNE's fault- PROMISE! I had NOTHING to do with the BUG- hahahahahaha

Well my Story-Book Romance ADD ON, is now in the store- WOOOHOOOO! It's really a more fun side to the Traditional Storybook Romance kit- and it give a really nice *eclectic* feel to it.


This STUNNING LO is from Elaine - ( Yup the winner of my kit) and the PROUD MOTHER of the bride!


This fun one is from Jenni (Chaos Lounge) - hee hee, I did tell her Hubby's hair do is NOW BACK in fashion-

And just incase you forgot what is looks like- LOL, here is the preview of the ADD ON-


25% OFF for a limited time ONLY-


A bit of DSO news-

WELCOME LOUCEE CREATIONS- a new BRAVE designer that just joined the *nutters bunch* LOL. Louise's first kit is in store- you can see it HERE.

We have the SCRAP N CHAT tonight too (February 25th @ 9pm, Eastern/6pm Pacific) READ more HERE.

CHALLENGES- OOOOH- times running out-LOL, get your challenges in quick to receive that MEGA MEGA fairies kit-


And I made 2 FREEBIE Alphas to co-ordinate with the Storybook-Romance kits-


Full Alphas in lower and uppercase, and numerals. In both Purple and Green-

The Uppercase also have Gem elements added - GRAB THEM HERE.

Unfortunately due to a lot of sharing of files and pirates etc lately , I have decided to put up all my freebies for a week only(from date of posting) - in this way I reward my LOYAL readers ( you) as YOU are the ones that I make them for-KWIM.? It was a hard decision- but I'm also tired of fighting the *buggers* LOL. I think a week is long enough as I know if I have missed one from one of my own favourites it was my fault for not visiting at least once that week-LOL. BUT- PLEASE- I know who most of my regulars are and if you are going away or think you are going to miss a week or two- LET ME KNOW, you know where my e-mail addy is-LOL. I'll ALWAYS make a plan for you! I hope you understand-  but I think that you do. Have a wonderful Monday -Sending lots of hugs a loves KIM



Please note that all my freebies will now be up for ONE WEEK only from posting Date - they will then be moved to the Bargain bin at DSO.

Please don't share my file with others- rather send them here to fetch it themselves. HUGS.

Mrs. Miles said...

Awww - I wish I were there to pamper you back to health ... I would come over and clean and 'hoover' and make you some chicken soup. I'd make you stay in bed all day with cucumber slices on your eyes (it always shows this in the beauty mags) so when you came back to the land of the living you would be refreshed like you spent the time at a luxury spa (LOL, now that I practiced up on my sweetie pie) and heavens, I may have even given you a manicure... (I can safely promise you all this since I'm thousands of miles away and have a chaos schedule this week)... but its the thought that counts hay? haha. I am sending you a BIG hug and I hope you recoup soon, my friend. Fanks for sending people over to my 'buggy' blog. I am SUCH A PEST. haahaha, ok, my humour is really deteriorating here... better nip myself in the bud. (ouch!)

Hey Girl!! It's me-remember me-Bonnie??? LOL! I have been MIA for some time now I know! It has been hectic!!! We went on holiday again on the 10th Feb-well we were here but had friends from the UK here, then left to go to Sedgefield with them on the 14th until the 18th. Then a week of doing washing etc and also to top it all off I didn't have internet from the 15th FEb. I am still not connected, (using my hubbys vodafone thingy to do this!!) but should be sorted out in the next week or two! Have missed you and your blog and freebies-lots of catching up to do! Sorry to hear about the piracy thing,that really sucks!! Chat soon and congrats being on Jen's CT and visa versa!!So exciting Jen is now selling too!!! Mwah! BonBon

Sharon - When you get a corrupt zip, often you have to not only clear out the Temp Internet files like you did, but also you have to download to a completely different folder the second time. Something about doing those two things pretty much assures that you get a "clean" download the next time. For me, if I don't download to a different spot, the next one will always be corrupt too. And not just a different sub-folder of the same folder... a whole different place. Like the main folder of your drive or something. HTH

Kim, thank you so very much for those delightfully beautiful alphas!!! WHAT a magnificent kit this is!!! Wowza. Gotta save up my pennies and snag these two at some point... LOVE THEM!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And please tell Elaine THANK YOU for the wonderful idea she had that prompted you to make this FABULOUS kit!!! I absolutely love everything you've done, but you're really outdoing yourself here with this one. What a work of art.

So sorry to hear about all the yuck that has invaded scrappyville... a week is a good idea. And thank you for letting us know that if we've missed something for some reason, we can contact you. That is very kind, and greatly appreciated. What a gal!!!

Guess you and your beloved Waynie have got a whole new meaning going on with that ol' nursery rhyme "Skip to my LOO" thing, huh... heh... groan... sorry... teeheehee... Glad to hear you both are on the mend now tho!!!

Boo said...

Yabba dabba doo. yayy Kim, just saw your reply to my question re the sale of Storybook but hey girl, I already got it... and the ad on... hehe, can't keep a good kit from me ya know.

More regarding the corrupt download thing...

I posted previously before my first download was finished so thought I'd better do a little update here! The two lower case alphas came through corrupt for me too. Cleared everything out, re-downloaded to a different drive... same corruption, same two lower case alphas. Maybe when you get a minute, would you mind checking on the zip file at your end, Kimmi Dear? Thanks ever so much!!!

geezee said...

I get a kick out of your fun. Glad to hear we won't lose out on your freebies completely I never seem to stay away a whole week so I am glad that is your edict. thank you. I picked up your Commercial Use kit the other day. LOVE It!

turquoisefae said...

Very pretty although I didn't get the complete set.
I downloaded twice your zip file but WinZip couldn't unzip all files.
It says some files are damaged. I saw only the upper case. :-((

Maria said...

Thank you! Your blog post will be advertised on the DigiFree Digital Scrapbooking Freebie search engine today.

Fantastic freebie m'dear! So sorry you are under the weather, funny how lil ones are so willing to share their germies with us! o.O

I also hate the fact that people are taking advantage of your gorgeous work. Boo on them! I appreciate all of your time, creative energy, and your willingness to share your treasures so openly. Thank you for all you do!

Brightest blessings...
