November Pixel Scrapper Blog Train and Fan Freebie

As usual on a horse ranch, October was a flurry of activity getting things cleaned up, tank heaters hooked up and generally getting the horses used to the idea that winter is coming.  They don't seem to mind the snow and cold as much as I do.  And, I rescued a little black kitten from my barn.  He was just so little and wouldn't have made it otherwise.  I've done this rodeo before, so I knew what I was getting myself into.  He's about 7 weeks old now and eating on his own.  He's totally black and we named him "Boo".  He's just adorable.  I'm sure you'll hear more about Boo as time goes along.

The Blog Train theme this month is "Family Traditions".  You know, when my kids were still living at home, there were a number of traditions that we always clung to.  But, in recent years, those traditions are more a thing of the past as we create new traditions to suit my grown up children, their spouses and my grandchildren.  And that's ok.  I'm always game for new and different.  The bottom line for me is that everyone is happy and healthy.  The only tradition that I won't budge on is there WILL be turkey for Thanksgiving!

The Fan Freebie this month is more in the colors I like for this time of year since everything outside is starting to be more grey and gloomy.  We missed fall leaves this year.  From the incredibly hot summer we had, we jumped straight into cold weather.  The leaves skipped changing color and went straight into frozen dry brown, and then blew into the next county with a couple of extremely windy days.  We're left with leafless trees that kind of look spooky with the setting sun.  Great prop for Halloween though!

laughter, smiles, family, friends and memories galore!

October Pixel Scrapper Blog Train and Fan Freebie

September just flew by.  The worst part was trying to figure out what to wear each day.  One day it was in the 80s and the next day it dropped into the 60s, and much colder at night.  Back and forth all month long.  Haven't turned the heat on yet, but that day is coming!

Using the same color scheme, I've created my new October Fan Freebie for you.  Originally I was going to create a cluster frame, but decided that you might like the elements separate to mix and match with all the other kits on this train.

This month's train is so much fun!  The ladies have come up with some terrific kits, all in a really great color scheme.  Be sure to collect them all during the month of October to use with all your wonderful fall photos.  You can find them on the train list  HERE

Hope you all have a wonderful fall!  Enjoy!

September Pixel Scrapper Blog Train and Fan Freebie

I don't usually wish my summer away, but with the hot weather we had this year, I'm actually pretty happy that summer is almost over and done.  We usually have much nicer weather from now into November -- warm days, cool nights.  I hope this year is no different.

This month's theme is "Cozy Kitchen".  I tend to be the happiest when I'm messing around in the kitchen.  I like trying new recipes and pulling together fabulous meals for holidays and special occasions.  But, my favorite activity in the kitchen is baking.  Cookies, cakes, pies, dinner rolls and breads, sweet rolls and ... oh my gosh, I'm making myself hungry!  I love my kitchen.  Lots of hickory cabinets and hardwood floor, plenty of counter space and a great big island right in the middle.  Plenty of room to bake to my heart's content!

August Pixel Scrapper Blog Train and Fan Freebie

It's always fun to do artwork for kids.  Thanks to digital photography, I probably have more photos of my grandkids than what I ever had of my own children.  I can't even begin to imagine how much I spent on film and developing back then, and all too often getting photos back that were less than perfect.  I remember one time getting a full pack of photos back covered with white spots because they didn't clean up their printers.  Geez!  Fortunately, I could always get a refund on bad photos.  That's fine and good except there is no way I could ever have a photo of that special moment again.  Like I said -- I love my digital cameras!

The Alpha kit includes small and capital letters and literary symbols in 6 different colors.  Adding captions to your pages adds that little extra, especially when that photo is screaming that it has something to say!

I also have a new Fan Freebie -- frames, borders and graffiti that matches "Kids Ahead".   Creating pages with these kits is almost as much fun as finger painting!  Enjoy!

Just a note about Freebies --

I keep all Blog Train and Fan Freebies available for the entire month that they are introduced and published on my blog.  Some remain available beyond that.  And, some don't.  It all comes down to server space.  My painting store takes first priority because, quite honestly, it pays the bills.  So, be sure to pick up freebies sometime during the month because I can't guarantee they'll be there when the month is over.
