Back to Blogging with a freebie!

What a hectic day it was yesterday! First, I woke up to no email. Comcast email was down so I was out of touch with everything! I guess the upside to that was that I was able to get some layouts made! I could have spent the time cleaning my house...that's just crazy talk!


Then, I had to prepare for our small graduation party for my ESL class. BTW, I am so proud of them. I the 60 hours that I've been teaching them, they have all made 2 level gains! They are expected to make one level gain, but these guys worked so hard that they made 2 level gains! Woo Hoo! I still have to grade their written tests, but for the oral exam--they rocked!


After class and after yet another argument with my 16 year old son, little Emily fell and hit the corner of her eye on the heating intake vent. (yes, metal!) My 18 yo had taken the car (with the carseat) so I had to borrow a car and carseat to get Emily to Instacare. An hour later, she had 2 stitches and the start of a very nice black eye. This morning it is almost swollen shut. (I'll post photos after she wakes up...)


When I came home, I walked upstairs to see a florescent glow coming from my bedroom. Yep, my darling husband had gotten me a big screen LCD HDTV Television set! He started out looking at the cheapest one Costco had but by the time he left, he had talked himself into a 47 inch LCD...(evidently, LCD has better contrast than plasma. He also told me something else about it 1080 something, but I stopped listening at "This is a much better tv..." Amanda could care less about all the specs--when I watch a movie, is it going to feel like Matthew McConaughey is sitting on my lap? If so, then I have nothing further to ask.


On to scrapbooking...I love hybrid! My husband--not so much. He loves the non-messy aspect of digital scrapbooking, so when I pulled out my glue and chipboard albums, he groaned. I've learned how to ignore everything since my 16 yo has gotten into this disrespectful stage, so I just tune Randy out when it comes to hybrid! Just wait til he sees his Father's Day present. He'll change his hybrid tune! LOL!


Anyway...I decided that I would give a way a page a day of my "A Whisper of Spring Luggage Tag Album." At the end of the 10 days, you'll have a complete album and I'll put it in the store for those who missed out. HOWEVER, the links will only be active for a day. When I post the new luggage tag, the previous day will be deleted...(I'll leave today's post up a little longer to make sure everyone has a chance to find out!) THe pages fit the Basic Grey Luggage Tag Album.


I made the pages with my kit A Whisper of Spring. Be sure to check out the gorgeous quick pages that Chris Hutchings (hutchie) made.


You can find all my hybrid designs here and A Whisper of Spring Collection here. To make this even more sweet, A Whisper of Spring Collection is on sale for 50% off during these 10 days!!

ROTF at your husband and the tv - what is it about men and tv's?? And you're absolutely right - if it can make George Clooney look like he's about to kiss ME ... I'm all for it so don't talk about specs.

Beautiful papers - very fresh and fun - reminds me of summer!

Beautiful pages you are giving away, and hope your day goes much better. Poor sweety with the black eye hope she feels better too.

Thanks for the page! My hubby is just the opposite - as much as he hates mess, he still prefers the tangible pages and scrapbooks I used to make. He usually doesn't even see the digital pages I make. Or maybe he just doesn't want to see the hundreds upon hundreds of dollars of paper scrapping stuff we've purchased over the years go to waste! Ouch!

HEY! I think your husband ought to be talking to a few other husbands out there!! I personally volunteer mine! LOL. Thanks for the great tag...now I have to remember to show up every single day. (I just about do anyway - but now I could LOSE = ( LOL. Thanks Amanda. Hang in their through the "rolling eyes" phase of your teen. You will both come out the other end alive. . I promise.

Loved reading your blog. Yes, I agree. Why clean the house: it's only going to get dirty again! And always remember, a clean house is a sign of a broken computer!!! Thanks for this luggage tag QP. Very cute.
