And the winner is…

Well, before I announce which of my wonderful Facebook fans is the winner of the free “It’s all you” shoot…  I’m going to share a little about my day.  🙂  Which was lovely btw.

I did a photo shoot in the early afternoon with Reche and her family.  They were absolutely delightful – such sweet little girls.  Her youngest is out to conquer the world, and will do it too I bet!

Then I picked up the husband from work, picked up the kid from school, hit the co-op for some picnic supplies (gotta have strawberry salad and watermelon), packed up a yummy fresh supper into our picnic bag…  and off we went to one of my favourite little hidden spots down by the river.  Most of the sandbars are overrun with people, but I know a couple slightly more out of the way spots, and we were all alone.

We did see our first tick of the year, nasty little things make me cringe and even thinking about it has me all itchy…  LOL  But it was all good.  The girl played in the sand, she and her Daddy threw and skipped rocks.  And we all very much enjoyed our first picnic of the year.  Silly me, I didn’t think to bring my telephoto lens along – but I’ll remember next time.  😉

After supper we stopped on over to my Auntie Risa’s new place.  It was nice visiting with her and my cousins.  And we even were treated to a little fried chicken and tea.

So yep.  A very nice day.

Okay…  so ya’ll are wanting to know who gets the free photo shoot, right?  Who gets to be spoiled and be the star?  Well, our lucky number is 141 (so instead of counting up from 1, I counted backwards from 158).

random.org picked facebook fan number 141

So Facebook fan number 141 is…..

Shania Duquette!

Scraptastic Saturday – a new kit, a new LO, and a new freebie

Lots of scraptastic stuff today.  🙂

First off, Sugar Pie Scraps has got an amazing new kit out at Polka Dot Plum.  It’s called Snow, Sledding & Sweets.  I absolutely love it.  When I first saw it, I knew I liked it…  but it wasn’t until I actually started working with it that I fell in love with it.  This kit really is a dream to work with.  It’s got a ton of flexibility, and works with both the sillier layouts and the more serious ones.  It really is fabulous.  And even better?  You have a chance to WIN it.  Hop on over to http://www.digishoptalk.com/boards/happy-place-31/win-snow-sledding-sweets-263926/ to enter the free draw.

 

Now, here’s the new LO (layout).  And you guessed it…  I used the kit above.  LOL

Oh right…  I also promised a freebie, didn’t I.  I didn’t forget.

The image is linked, so just click on it to download.  🙂

yuletide spirit wordartAnd if you feel like playing along, why not stop by the plum and share what you’ve created using my word art.  🙂  The url for the challenge is http://www.polkadotplum.com/forum/showthread.php?t=4773 All I ask, is that when giving credit please list it as “a scraptastic design by TD”.  🙂

 

That’s it from me today.  I’m off to a party with some really great folks we know through my husbands work.  Take care, and be safe.

She can dance and draw…

We spent much of our afternoon and early evening with my family.  Visiting, eating, playing…  it’s always a nice time.  🙂  I’m so thankful to have them near by.  I can’t imagine the wee girlie growing up without family all around her,  I’m happy she can grow up like I did, with a strong supportive extended family.  I really do feel very lucky.

I couldn’t decide between two images today.  One showing off the wee girlie’s drawing skill, and the other showing Lily-Ann and my sister Marie “getting down”.  LOL  So here’s both.
