Sunshiny day

PHEW_ rain all week and now SUN- makes for a HOT HOT HOT and MUGGGGGGGY day- lol. Talk about tropical, feels like I'm in Durban today! Mel how the hell do you stand the Humidity girl???. lol. But my washing is out on the line, the lawn is being mowed- the birds and butterfly's are out- WOOOHHHHHHOOOOOOO it's SUMMER BABY, it's SUMMER! Love the smell of the fresh cut lawn- reminds me of being a little girl running after my dad while he mowed the lawn- usually with watermelon or peach juice running down my chin-lol. I think it has to be on top of my favourite list of SMELLS- that and the smell of fresh summer rain just as it starts to come down- FRESH and clean!  hee hee, can you see I'm psyched for summer? We are slowly moving towards our Summer holiday break which is usually over the whole festive season. And everyone is starting to feel that *Festive spirit* and it's contagious! YIPPPEEEE.

Ok, yesterday must have been one of the most frustrating I have had as a designer-LOL, I was trying to change a kit I had half done (uhum -JENNI- BWAHAHAHAHAH)- but landed up DELETING more than I was keeping! I swear I was ready to throw it and mentioned it to Bunny Wunny- she said send screen cap of what you got - HAHAHAHAHA, well I got this LIST back of _ OOOh how about this and I WANT this and how about something like that and GET OFF YOUR ASS and draw- BWAHAHAHAHAHAH! WOOHOO- So now I'm drawing my ass off here and I know I need to be off the computer to do it- so this will be the last ( yeah so says SHE-hee hee) pop on until I FINISH what I started- But honest, if you are STUCK and need to get out a *mind rut*- ASK A FRIEND- it usually gets you going again! Thanks Girlfriend!

Don't forget my CHRISTMAS CU GRAB bag is up and it works out to ONLY $1 per KIT ( not $1 per ITEM but $1 per kit ;-)

And of course we can't go a Friday without some eye candy!-

JoyRS

this Lovely LO is from Jazzy- I LOVE the white space and the cluster! Jazzy also used her Glam Tidings Word art Titles with this

Jazzy is also offering this as a QP FREEBIE on her blog- Grab it HERE

And we have eventually got my newest CT member Kimberly Rae to get a BLOG- LOL, WEll let's put it this way- the girls got her to do it over my BDay bash- apparently they had a BALL yakking behind my back- hahahahahahahah.- Just check this out-

christmas-glitz-preview-web2[5]

Kimberley has Made this for YOU- yup it's a freebie!! The girls got her going at making some goodies and look what we get! WOOOHOOO- you go girl!

 You can grab it HERE and please remember to leave my girls some LOVE- honestly they are the GREATEST bunch of girls and they really really love giving to you! So I think just a little *thank you* would be really appreciated ;-)

And Silvia has done another exquisite LO with all my bag goodies-

Vanessa for Kim (600 x 600)

She used bits from my Glam Tidings kit, Words for YOU and the goodies in the Christmas bag to create the paper!!

pjk-Family-Bond-000-Page-1

AHHH- don't you just love this from PK DOLL! She used my LORYN kit and Jazzy's Family word art OVerlays. LOVE IT.

And of course I can't let the day go without a WEEKEND FREEBIE for you ;-)

I had an extra few PATTERNS that I had been playing with for my Christmas BAG- and decided to give you one to try.

This one is slightly more simple in style than the ones in the bag- but you can play with it to give it your own feel too.

kb-treepattern

Yeah it's CU-OK, but it will be taken down on MONDAY ;-)- So grab it Quick. I have included the paper too ( only for personal use)- and the overlay is in PNG @ 300ppi.-

Grab it HERE-

and I know 4shared is on drugs at the moment with the comments thing- but if you like it- leave me a message here and let me know ok-, 28 comments from 1500 downloads sort of sucks-lol. Okies, I'm off to scratch my pencil over my paper again ( I'm having so much FUN again- Thanks for the kick up the ass Bunny- HAHAHAHAHA) Hope you all have a stunning weekend. Hugs and loves Kim

Vicki said...

Hey, I'm doing double bubble commenting today to make up for the lack of comments on 4shared! It really is frustrating, but it doesn't take that much longer to comment - I always do even if it means having to go through 3 screens to do so! Come on everyone - get thanking Kim or I'll be after ya!! ;o)

KayJay said...

I'm so jealous, here you are rejoicing in summer coming and I am getting grumpier as winter is coming - they are forecasting black ice, high winds and snow for this afternoon - YUCK!!! And apparently worse for the weekend, oh dear, going to be long days with the boys stuck indoors everyday!
Thanks for the overlay, beautiful as usual, I may just try and convince my husband, that I just HAVE to have your grabbag, only a dollar a kit, might just convince him!
Thanks for a fun read and all the eye candy (love that expression)
Hugs
Kerri

Patamomma said...

txbubbles said...

Hi Kim,
I know what you mean about the comment thing. I left one on 4shared, too. 46 downloads and 2 comments, it's pathetic that people won't take just a few seconds to show some appreciation. I'll get down from my soap box now! LOL!!! Thanks so much for this terrific overlay. I love it!
Hugs,
Vicki in Texas

Enjoy the warmth of summer for me- it's frosty and cold here today. We have the most magnificent frost formations on the foliage this morning, which made the walk to school and back gorgeous.
Stupid 4shared! The whole 'login to leave a comment' thing never works for me :P thanks for the overlay freebie, it is much appreciated!

Tirza said...

Thank you

Deatles said...

Ohhh I LOVE this overlay! Soooo cute. Thank you so much for bestowing this gift.

It's awful that folks don't thank you for your generosity. I for one look forward to your blog each day, and I am truly grateful for the fact that you share your obvious talent and your hard work with us.

Andrea said...

Glad Wayne's feel better! Can't wait to see what you're working on now! Your drawing/doodling is awesome!

Beautiful layouts! Your CT is fabulous!!

Thanks for the beautiful tree overlay!

Jazzy said...

Love the overlay..thanks..well we don't have any snow in Alabama but it went down in the teens last night..my feet are freezing and I've got warm fuzzy socks on too..
your description of a summer day, mowing grass, took me way back to my childhood I can almost smell the grass and the fresh peaches..summer just had a different smell back then..doesn't smell that way now..or at least not to me..I know what you mean about comments...I had way over 1200 downloads on your birtday word art and got about 100 comments. I considered my self lucky and thanks to all who left one. Ok I've done a blog and didn't mean to..have a great weekend and enjoy that weather...hugs

Peggie said...

This is beautiful. It's too bad you can't package some of the warmth and
send it to us folk that are in the
freezing zone. Thank you for this
beautiful overlay. I love it.

txgwen said...

Thank you so much for the overlay - I think I feel some creative juices starting to flow - LOL! I'm jealous of your nice, warm (though muggy!) weather - we're experiencing a COLD front and I'm freezing!

Chelle said...

Thankyou for a cool overlay, now if you could only upload some of that great weather your having to 4shared for us to download, life would be so much the sweeter.

No ? Oh well, never mind....thanks for the great freebies anyway. :-)

grannymike said...

Today I took the time to thank you both places. I hope this makes up for the lack of thanks on 4 shared. This is a gem; thanks so much.,

Sue said...

Thanks so much for the great paper and pattern! :)

Bunny Cates said...

summery? TROPICAL?

*leans up and leans out the sliding glass doors at the flurries, and rubs her freezing hands together.*

mel_h said...

LOL!!
sending you MUCH love kim!
mel xxxxxxxxxx

Hey Ya Girly!
Have I said lately how much I hate 4-shared? No? Well I do! If I sign in, it will display my personal email account. I don't think so! :op

Thank you for all of the wonderful treasures. I've L-O-V-E-D the goody bags so much. I seem to have missed the instrumentals though... :o) Yeah, I'm just haggin on ya! teehee.

Ooh before I forget, the kids made State Championships & Final Four! We're Psyched! We're Psyched! Now on to Orlando in April!!! Anyone interested in a fundraiser for a non-profit??? :o) Their Band Rocked the stadium blowing most of the competition away. It was a blood bath between us and our district rivals however. It's the first time both bands have made it to finals together, so it made it all the more interesting. Their school is only a couple of miles up the road from ours. Thier the "old alumni school" and have all the community support and we just opened in 2001 and get very little support without Hubby & I using our creative marketing skills. But we killed em! YEAH!!!!

Alright already! I'll quit hoggin your Blog. Just haven't had the chance to pester you lately or fill you in on the kids hard eard season.

Hugs & Blessings,
D.

Dinphy said...

Well, I think it's FUN reading about the different weather you have there!
I like my Christmas to be cold, preferably with some snow. So I won't complain - too much ;) - about our COLD weather. And HAIL!! LOL.

LOVE the overlay! Thank you so much for making some of your beautiful CU items available for free!

Enjoy the weather! :)

Linda Walton aka bobbysgirlforever said...

Hello you SWEET THANG you!!! Thank you for dropping by and cheering me up with your LOVELY face and INCREDIBLE sense of humor! I shall DEFINITELY ask Mel about the "phrase" you left me with!!! HOOT, HOOT, HOOT - you are the HOOTIEST darlin'!!! LOVE you for it too!

I have been in such a state with my troubled computer that I was not even able to leave you a comment the other day when I saw a mail come in for your NEW CU grab bag!!! You just KNOW that I am on your GREATEST FANS list and would not miss it for anything ... well, ALMOST anything, he, he .... *wink*

Anyhoo, I could get NO WHERE with my computer that day and to make myself feel better, I SLOWLY made my way over to purchase it!!! THANK YOU for some MORE incredibly AWESOME goodies girlfriend!!! You ROCK ... and then SOME!

Thank you for yet ANOTHER goodie by way of this LOVELY overlay! You are just TOOOOOOO generous lady love and I, too, leave my comments on BOTH 4-shared and one's blog. It DOES NOT take but a fraction of the time to say "thank you" to a designer who has spent HOURS, DAYS, or WEEKS on a project to share with ALL in SCRAPLAND!

I am EVER thankful to you for your CONTINUED generosity Kim darlin'!!!

MWAH!

XOXO,
Linda :)

P.S. Having GOOD friends such as Bunny Wunny surely makes for a VERY sunshiny day when our heads are full of clouds, eh? Can't wait to see what you've been up to sweetie!!!

Busy busy week, so sorry for a short comment. I'll come back and haunt you soon though, promise. I think Monday will be a stay-at-homer this week.

Just came by to give some belated thanks for that wonderful freebie. When I downloaded we had the usual catastrophes that always happen when mommy takes her computer coffee break ;)). 4shared really is on drugs with the comments. It will never let me comment although I am logged in.
You talk of spring and here winter has just arrived. My girls have been very busy building snowmen, cause you never know how long it will last. Have a great week.

Danke! What a fun paper. You are kind to share. Happy Holiday!

Hope you mouth is better by now.
