A Little Blue Tag


I've fallen into the trap of not wanting to blog because I don't have any freebies to give back to all the wonderful scrappers who share with me. I've been struggling with Adobe Photoshop and I feel as if I've taken a huge step backwards, because I can't use it nearly as well as I can Paintshop Pro. Soooo ... I'm going to give myself a break and stick with PSP and also just blog and not try to compete, 'cus frankly I just can't!

I'm also going to stop trawling through all the freebies on, because there are just too many and it takes so long. I find I go there and have a nose around and when I check the time, 2 to 3 hours have passed. Which is great, but not EVERY DAY! I will just stick with my favourite Blogs, and you know who they are girls, 'cus I pop in regularly and always comment when I've been to your fab blogs, even when I don't download your freebies.

I LOVE reading about
Bubbles daily saga's and the beautiful Lily and Wyatt her grand babies.

Vicki20 has me is stitches with her tales of Lily and Pompey, her two beautiful Labradors.

Anita who I miss dreadfully and think of daily, and hope that she finds that ray of sunshine that she lost when her beloved hubby died earlier this year. Her blog helped me enormously last year with the mammoth task of scrapping my daughter's 21st Birthday scrap book. Which turned out fantastically, THANK YOU ANITA xx

Bethany who also helped enormously with her wonderful wordart which gave me inspiration, plus her blog is so entertaining. How she can blog, create, diet and cope with five children is beyond me. I think a medal is deserved.

And last, but not least, Cen, who is so very generous, talented and so funny, with tales of lost parents, monster spiders, stiff shirts and discarded relatives!

I'm going to use the time I free up to actually create something. I haven't made a piece of
jewellery for over nine months, and I only make cards and 'Charming Moments', when I need them. I don't know about you girls, but my mojo goes when I HAVE to do something, as apposed to wanting to do something. I'm also going to read more, as I only read now when I can't get on my laptop, which seems to be like all the time just recently. I have a 2 bookcases full of books I have not read which is a crime! I may even do a bit of housework, but I can't promise :)

Anyway .... enough already, I bet you're bored by now, I know I am.

Freebie time

That said, I did try a little tutorial by Shawna, who has a really great blog 'Scrap Stuff With PSP -Tutorials'.

Oh dear! It looks like 4shared is off line at the moment, let's hope it's back up soon. I just pinged it and it's not responding at all! (00.38 6th Aug).


  1. Thank you so much for the kind words Susie! I know what you mean about having to do something and wnating to do it, there is a world of difference and don't I just know it, lol!
    I love reading too and but I'm afraid it's just an other thing that I do that cuts into my sleep time..but I can't give it up. I read at least one book every week or I get withdrawal symptoms.
    Your blog is looking greaat and thank you for the beautiful freebie, I love the colour and the cardboard!! Thanks for sharing!
    If you want some tuts...basic, I only do basic...for CS2, just shout as I have some you can have. go before I write a book!

  2. Thank you! Your blog post will be advertised on the DigiFree Digital Scrapbooking Freebie search engine today (look for timestamp: 05 Aug [LA 12:00am, NY 02:00am, UK 07:00am, OZ 05:00pm] ).

  3. Susie - I know what you mean! I am only making cards when they're needed - I used to make loads of them and my Mum and sister used them too. AND, I used to make lots of jewellery and it's been at least 8 months since I did! Computers take over our lives a bit, don't they? Keep safe and keep in touch. Big hugs xx

  4. Susie,
    Thanks so much for the sweet words! I'm blushing! I know what 'ya mean about being a blog junkie, I'm one too. These days I have a hard enough time keeping up with my own! LOL!!! My jewelry and hair bow making has taken a back seat lately, too. Take care.
    Big Ole Texas Hug,
