Calendar Brushes (and Wow! it has been a long time!)

It has been so long that I had to reactivate my 4shared account!

I have created a brush set of 2010 calendars. Please let me know if these don't work...they work for me, but I think I have learned by working with computers that sometimes things don't go quite as you plan!

Click HERE for the brush set.

Here is an example of one of the brushes...what the calendar looks like. I think I made them a little small, so I upped the pixel size:

All of the calendars are basically the same...one for each month.

My Zoo Spirit part!

Well, it's going to come down to the wire with this one, as I have been in Pleasanton, CA all week for work, and just got back to Phoenix this evening. Then, I had to drive home from the airport, read to my son, take a shower, unpack...I'm really beat! But, I'm determined to get this out on time!!!

I have 4 different files to share. The first is the alpha that I created. That took the most time, by far!
HERE is where you can upload it.
The next thing are the papers and elements that I created:

HERE is where you can find these I do believe the drop shadows are on the preview only. It's been a while since I created them, and it's really getting late tonight!

Above is a layout I did of my 2 kids using the papers and elements I created for this kit (yes, they are sitting in storage boxes...they're a little silly)! I made a Quick Page of this layout:

You can find my Quick Page HERE.

Finally, I made a Quick Page using some elements that another person (Scrappy Shannon) donated to us to make Quick Pages from:

You can find this Quick Page HERE

Boy, I can't believe I finished this tonight! Leave some comments...you wouldn't believe how encouraging it was when the collab kit from last month was released, and all day I got those really nice comments!

Below is the blog roll for the ADSD Zoo Spirit kit. I counted 50 people on the list. That's a lot of people!!!

Princess layout and a freebie QP

Here is a layout that I did of my daughter and me at Disneyland over the last Memorial Day weekend. We were kind of early at the parks that day (I don't know how she does it, but my daughter EVERY DAY wakes up at 5:15. Even if she goes to bed late or early. I've looked...there's no alarm clock anywhere in her room).

Anyway...here is the layout that I did.
Click here for the freebie QP that I created. It's the first one that I've ever done! If you like the wand and stars alpha at the top of my layout, that is in the very first blog post. Credits for Commercial Use items are in the TOU included in the file. (12/29/09--I can't find that original TOU for the Commercial Use items I used...sorry).

Very first attempt at designing!

Well, this is my very first attempt at designing anything! I've participated in a collaboration kit with a wonderful group in Yahoo Groups called Aspiring Digi-Scrap Designers (ADSD for short).

This is my piece of the 'Backyard Playground' kit. I've learned A LOT just playing around in PSE 6 to make these 3 papers and 4 frames.

Thank you very much for visiting, please leave a comment if you download, and make sure to grab the other pieces of the kit! Click HERE for my piece, and visit the links below for other contributors' pieces of the kit.

Only a couple more hours!

Only a couple more hours until my part of Backyard Playground comes out! I learned SO MUCH just by doing 3 papers and 3 frames. I know that I'll be that much better for the next one!

Wand Alpha

Here is an alpha I created for a challenge. I haven't heard that we couldn't post it on our own blogs...so here it is.

Click HERE for the zip file. There are capital letters, numbers, and lower case letters...sorry...the font didn't come with any special characters!

BTW...this isn't the first thing I created, but it is the first thing I've posted! I've found it very interesting to create my own stuff...if you like it, please leave me a comment. Thanks!
