Wow! Can’t believe it’s been since February that I posted. No excuses but let me tell you what I’ve been up to. My previous post about the computer woes led me to finally purchase a new computer. Get this – I was able to pretty much fix my other computer. Want to know what the problem was? My memory sticks (a.k.a RAM). It wasn’t until the last couple of crashes that I noticed the error was finally saying memory. It never said that before. So I changed out a couple of the sticks and I’ve only had a couple of crashes since then. Go figure! I still need to replace the motherboard but will do that when I have extra money. (a.k.a – NEVER)
I also had to finish up my daughter’s homeschooling year. This was by far the most frustrating year ever! I think it’s her age that’s the problem. She’s trying to be independent and tell me “what she’s going to do.” Yeah, that doesn’t work well for me. She ended up finishing a year after the public schools did and she started a couple of weeks before they did.
Unfortunately, all my frustrations didn’t work well for my schooling. I ended up getting the boot from my school program because I couldn’t complete one of my courses. I had some medical issues and they didn’t care. It’s a rough school. Fortunately for me, the VA (Veteran’s Administration) was gracious enough to allow me to start over somewhere else in a different program. Kinda sucks though because I was 4 classes and a project away from my degree. Oh well, I’m starting September 8th back at my old Alma Mater in Human Resources. The market looks much better than my other degree which was Aeronautical Science.
I have gone through my old files and it looks like I may have some freebies for you. I want to go through my box account and make sure they haven’t been given to you already and then I’ll post them. But for now, I do have a bookmark that I made tonight. I hope you like it. I made it for my daughter. She even helped me with the designing. I think she has great talent. I may have her completely design the next one while I choose the kits and do the dragging/dropping. She doesn’t know Photoshop yet. Guess it’s time to teach her!
These are the fabulous kits I used. The designers at Scrapbook-Elements have been doing mini kits that coordinate with each other. I think it’s such a GREAT idea because you can just pick and choose what you want for a fabulous kit! These are from their Summer edition called “Summer Memories.”
I need to put in a disclaimer here though. The sprinkling of stars/hearts is actually from Magical Swirls 4 by Kitty Chen. The little animals and flower elements are from Evitangel by Dawn Inskip. Here is the link for it. Hope you enjoy it. Come back soon! ~Denise
