New stuff and a freebie! sure has been busy lately, I seem to be in a designing frenzy at the moment. How long that will last.....well who knows but things are good. So what's new?
Our very own Kate (PBP designer) had a beautiful baby boy Monday morning at 2am. So huge hugs and a big CONGRATULATIONS to her and her family.
My DD Grace played her grand final game in volleyball last night and boy was it a close game. They got runners up and I am so proud of her and the team as in all the seasons they have played they haven't got that far. They sure did us all proud and even though they got runners up, in my books they are winners. You go girls! Now we wait for the next season and that starts in Spring.
My latest designs are in the Pickleberrypop Shop . Let me introduce you to Plain Jane. There is a paper pack and an element pack and both are selling for just $3.00 (AUD) each or $2.54 (USD) with the current exchange rate.

Plain Jane Element Pack

If you scroll down to the next post you will see more new goodies that are now over at Pickleberrypop. Ok so here is my latest freebie for you all. Not as many elements as usual but hey it's a freebie. Grab it while you can as it will only be available for the next week and please if you download I would love you to leave a little loving. Thanks and enjoy!!!

Freebie4U3 download link no longer available sorry!

So until next blogging take care, stay safe and for all of you about to go into school holidays over the next couple of weeks here downunder....stay sane ;)

In between posts.....

Thought it was time to simply pop in and post in between posts....huh! Yeh well kinda like a Claytons post.....the post you have when you're not really posting....hehehehe. So considering this is a post that you're not really reading I can put anything here.

What's new in my little corner of the vineyard.....yes I have a new computer and I love it...but you already knew that. Ummmm....what else we have all been sick here with the dreaded winter lurgies. Yep seems like life didn't think we had enough challenges thrown upon us lately so we've all had the flu of some sort and it certainly has knocked me. I thought I was over it but seems like it loves me a little too much and I just can't get rid of it fully although I am so much better it is just a little clingy and won't leave me.

News on Lance......there is no news since the last time I blogged on that.....scroll down to Sunday, June 10, 2007 post to read on his latest and apart from that the diary stuff is still happening, the pains are still continuing but he is not allowing it to stop him from doing things which in some ways is scary but it is good to see him back to doing what he does although taking more care.

Designing.....I have a couple of new paper packs ready to be released but no sneaky peeky at this stage...but don't worry hopefully they'll be in the shop by Friday arvo at the latest and then I'll pop them on my blog with links to my shop. I also have another set of elements in my Old Box Creations line out next week ...some yummy material flowers and I'm working on some more elements as well. So life is busy. I have more CT layouts to pop on here but I think I will leave that until tonight or tomorrow and show them off all by themselves.

Sorry to all my blogging buddies for not blog hopping lately I'm planning to catch up soon and read out on all that I have missed.

Freebies.....yep I think I'm due to release a little freebie soon so stay tuned for that over the next few days. With not having a computer for just a little over 2 weeks and then being sick and having my family sick as has just got a little busier than usual and I'm a little behind on things.

Blog loving....I would love it if you are lurking to show me a little loving. I love to read your posts.....makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

Well 'nuf from me for today so until next blogging...take care, stay safe and for those of us here freezing, rug up and keep warm.

Ciao....Chris xx

Well today is Friday here downunder (AEST) and the weekend is here. Yippee! I've got back into the swing of designing now this new fangled computer is here and talk about things being super I just wish I was as fast as the computer, I can't keep up...teehee. There is nothing really new at this stage although I do have a collection of material flowers that will be released shortly and they truly are gorgeous. I just want to get a couple of other things done and then they will all go into the shop. It has been a rough week with lots of us sick but today is a much better day for me...the best all week actually which is good and it also means this dreaded head cold is on it's way out. Gosh it knocked me for a sixer. Anyway I think I will leave it for now and why not leave some loving here at my blog or better still not only leave it here but click on the links and leave a little on these girls LO's.

Take care and stay safe and for those of us in the midst of winter...rug up it's cold out there!

So you will see these awesome LO's all over the place at PBP as well as so many other galleries.

**TOOTING**........ just to note that joshi_82 has already had both her LO's featured as LO's of the day on a german forum, so wtg girl that is totally awesome! Check both here...... 1st and 2nd toot!

Also sharuth and scrapastrophe have had some of their LO's featured here at Designs in Digital. Although it does rotate with many LO's so you do have to keep checking it out but if you stay peeled for long enough I am sure you will see them.

Woohoo and guess what I got a new baby today....yep my new PC is here at home purring away ever so happily and I am impressed. I haven't put it through it's paces fully yet but that will happen soon enough.

On a more sour note most of us here are sick. Of course Steps has glandular fever although she is doing really well now and I suspect Grace has it as she has been sick for too long and of course it all looks the same as Steps, but I have a full on head cold, and so do the boys and the only really healthy dude here is and he is on a uni break at the moment for a few weeks until semester 2 starts. Not sure what the date is that he goes back but he has a bit of time to catch up and do heaps to get ready for placement when he goes back. So the break is really a study break as they don't let you off that easy!

Well time for me to go as this has turned into a series of novels but I couldn't wait to post those awesome CT LO's and congratulate each one of my gorgez gals. WTG girls you ROCK!!

Ok night, take care and stay safe.

Ciao Chris x

I have a creative team but I am going to leave telling you who is on my CT for a few more days yet just so we can settle into it all. I was so overwhelmed with the amount of applications I recieved and I would just like to take this moment to say thankyou to each and everyone of you. Selecting a team from so many awesome scrappers is no easy feat and it was the most difficult thing I have had to do. Congratulations to those that made it and sorry to those that didn't. The talent in this digi world is amazing and if it were possible I would have put so many more on but it isn't and I thankyou again for applying.

Well I have to admit that I have actually been without my baby...yes I have been without my computer for 2 weeks now....grrrrrr! A fortnight ago the sound went on it and we thought that it had just been muted...but nope, then we thought the sticky keys had been turned on as the pc was beeping at me from time to time internally....but nope so after sitting up till 3am...yes I did trying to work out what was going on. I realised that it was a little more serious then first thought so first thing Monday morning it went into one of our major local computer fixer uperer places and although they were meant to work on it sooner than they did they managed to get to it the next Friday only to find that windows somehow managed to become corrupt and that alot of important files had already disappeared. So I had to take it home and back up the computer so they could reformat it Monday. Thankfully most of it was done before it went in so I jsut had to back up a couple more things then took it back Monday and they did reformat it but upon restarting it was only starting intermittedly and then turning itself off. They took everything out and put it all back but nope no go. So after looking to see what was going on they managed to find that the mother board and processors had a few bubbles on it somewhere and that stuff was leaking....never a good sign and it only comes through age. I guess the 4 years it was doing so well for had finally decided it was time to not continue in it's happy place. So instead of getting my old computer upgraded I am getting a brand spanking new one.
Here are the specs:

1 CORE 2 DUO E6420 2.13/4M
1 GIG 7300GS 256MB PCIE

...and on top of that I still have my 160 gig HD that was put in last year, original 40 gig HD and my 250 gig EHD. Should be enough don't ya So they managed to get most of it together on Friday but ran out of time to finish it and seeing as it is the long weekend here I get to pick it up on Tuesday...yay and then I get to re-install everything. What fun. So thankfully hubbies laptop has been my lifesaver although not powerful enough to put PSCS2 on and design....keeping up with emails and the basics. I can't wait ti get back into designing and boy have I missed it.

News on kids...well Stephanie is still struggling with glandular fever although she is so much better than when first diagnosed and is managing the best she can. I think Grace may now have it as she has been sick for the past 2 weeks and it all just looks suspiciously like it. Lance got into the pediatriacian a month earlier than expected so we were there Friday and with a thorough check up he thinks it is unlikely it is Lance's heart (although hasn't ruled it out) and it may be his chest wall that is inflammed causing all the pain and probs with breathing. So for the next 2 weeks he is to have nurofen...1 tablet in the morning and 1 at night and keep a diary of when he gets the pain etc etc. Then the next 2 weeks no nurofen and still keep the diary and see if there is any difference. It's going to be a long diagnosis I think. But it is good news that he doesn't think it is the heart although this chest inflammation is a disease and I can't remember what he called it. So long as we get an answer and it can be fixed I am happy.

Well I think that is it for feels like it has been a long long day and I am ready for a cup of tea. Anyone care to join me.

Night all, stay safe and take care.

Chris :)
