Polar Blog Express - Day 12

Well, here we are at our final stop of the Polar Blog Express. I hope you all have enjoyed the ride! I know I sure have!

Today is the last day to grab those Christmas presents the designers at Digitals have hidden in their stores. If you haven't grabbed them yet, you better hurry before they are gone! See the forum for clues to find the gifts HERE

Today is also the last day of my sale. Everything in my store is 35% off!
You can find my store HERE

I have one extra treat for you on our last day of this journey. It is a tag frame. You can fold it up and add a ribbon then attach it to a package or you can just use it as a frame! This is what it looks like when finished (although this isn't the best picture! Sorry!)

That's my sweet grandson in the photos! Isn't he adorable? :o)

Polar Blog Express - Day 8

Hello again and welcome back! :o) (Please remember, I am writing this one day ahead of time so bear with me if things sometimes don't make sense! lol

First, thank you all for the Anniversary wishes! We had a wonderful day! The in-laws came and celebrated with us and took us out to dinner. After dinner, we dropped off the kids and hubby and I went to a park we like and just walked for a few hours and I took a gazillion photos of the sunset! lol I love my new camera I got recently (Olympus SP-56OUZ) but I am a bit disappointed with the colors I am getting out of it. I am going to have to look at it a bit more and see if there is any way to change them to brighten them up a bit! The oranges showed up nicely but the blues, pinks and purples just got lost! *sigh*
Next weekend we are celebrating our anniversary for real by going away for the weekend to a hot-air balloon festival in Northern Holland. I am SOOOOO looking forward to that! I wish I could afford the $150 euros a person to take a ride in one! I am afraid of heights but I am determined to ride in a hot air balloon in my lifetime! Go figure! lol
If nothing else, I should have some wonderful photos next weekend! Not only will we be going to the balloon festival but there is also this little town up there that is supposed to be just heavenly! Foot traffic only! I can't wait to see that as well! One more week to go! :o)

Here is a photo of the sunset I took tonight while walking through the park. You can click on it for a larger view! I did resize it a lot for the blog though! Isn't it gorgeous! I am so thankful for such beautiful sunsets!

Ok, enough chatter and on to Day 8! I have an embellished page and a plain back today. Again, the plain back can be used to create another page of your own making! Of course, I don't mind if you buy my Christmas kit to do that so that all of your pages match! :o) Just in case, lol, you can find the kit HERE
It's on sale for just $3.25! I also have some Christmas Clusters and Christmas bulb alphabets to match. You can buy those separately or buy all of them in a bundle for even greater savings! Check them all out in my store HERE!

Now, the moment you have all been waiting for! Day 8!

That's it for today! Have a wonderful day and see you again tomorrow!

Polar Blog Express - Day 7

Well, we are more than half way through the train ride now! Have you all been enjoying the ride so far?

Thank you again for all of the wonderful comments you have been leaving on my blog and at the 4shared download pages! They are very much appreciated!
Yes, the card has a "surreal" look to it. I used to make "real" cards and one of the things I did was to cut out portions like that and then fold the paper over. The point gets tucked into the the part below or glued. It was tough to do and time consuming but the look was great! I decided to try it digitally and I think it came out pretty good! It looks just like my "real" cards did! :o)

I changed my blog a bit yesterday! Did you notice? lol I think it is a much cleaner, easier to look at, look. The top banner was made for me by Shawn Walter using my Little Lady kit. I think she did a fabulous job on the banner, don't you?

Today, hubby and I are celebrating our 7th anniversary! The time has gone so quickly! I can't believe it's 7 years already! I am so glad he came into my life, even when I wasn't looking! He is everything to me and is my best friend without a doubt! I can't imagine life without him.
Happy Anniversary sweetheart! :o)

Ok, on to Day 7! Today I have the coordinating page to yesterday's page. (So weird to write "yesterday" as I am writing this "yesterday" for today! lol)

Polar Blog Express - Day 6

I have responded to some of the comments left in yesterday's blog entry. Please see the end of this blog entry for those responses!

I have 2 goodies for you today. The one is not the one I had hoped to have done as it is taking longer than I thought. I think it will be worth the wait when it is done though! :o)

Ok, first, I have a photo card I created some time ago. Santa and title not included! :o)
It's left blank so you can fill in your own greeting. Just a simple little card.

Link has expired

The second freebie is the next page (and blank back) from my Christmas Jack album.

Link has expired

Some comments left needed replies and this is the only to do that so here goes!
First, thank you again to everyone for your replies! As always, it is a true pleasure to read them!

lorig - I got a lot of weeding done! The garden looks almost like a veggie garden again and not a weed garden! :o)

lisar - Very creative way to use the pages! I am so happy to hear you found another way to use them! Thanks for passing that on!

scangel - Did you finally get Day 5?

Aleah'sMommy - Yes, I am definitely my own worst critic for sure! lol And a perfectionist which just makes matters worse! :o)

That's it for today! I am beat and heading to bed. It's been a long day!
Until tomorrow.....

Polar Blog Express - Day 5

Almost halfway through the ride! Here we are at Day 5 already!
I only have 1 freebie today; my next page from the Christmas Jack album. I worked all day on something but when I was done I didn't like it so much so I will wait to decide if I will put it here or not! Definitely look for something extra tomorrow though! :o)

I feel bad not having a little more for you all today after reading all of the wonderful comments you have been leaving! I can't tell you how wonderful it is to read your comments every day! Thank you all so very much! I find myself going straight to your comments when I wake up every morning! It really starts my day off on a wonderful note!

Ok, moving on to the next page in the Christmas Jack abum! It's just the single, coordinating page to yesterdays. Again, this would be the right side. Each set is right and left plus a matching blank back in case you want to add your own pages. Here is today's page!

Don't forget to grab the day's downloads from the other designers on the train!
See you tomorrow!

Polar Blog Express - Day 4

Onto Day 4!
Well, I have 2 freebies for you again today! Although it was sunny out today, I didn't feel up to weeding again so I played a bit today and came up with a quickpage using my Fantasia kit. I am just crazy about all of the clusters out there these days so I tried my hand at it, kind of! I threw everything but the kitchen sink on this QP but I think it came out ok. Let me know what you think!

Link has expired

This is the kit I used to make the QP:

It's on sale right now for just $4.55!
With 21 backgrounds and 175 elements, this price is just crazy!
Grab the kit HERE

I made so many papers for this kit, that I had to make an add-on paper pack!

This pack has 13 more papers and you can grab it for just $2.28!
Grab the Paper Pack Add-On HERE

Now, on to Day 4! I have another double page for you today. The page and a matching back. I hope you like it!
