Welcome Digital Scrapbookers

So glad you found me. Just come and sit a spell, it's time to go exploring. Life is an unscripted journey that if you're lucky enough, you capture it with words and photos.

Thinking about exercise

Thinking about the need to continue my exercise schedule, just need to push it up at least another day or longer time.  Don't know which one.  Just my way of trying to motivate myself.

Food thoughts

Good morning to everyone,

Since I am now on quite a limited diet for the next forty-eight hours, I thought I'd offer a freebie around the theme of dining.  If I can't eat much to speak of, I can at least do a freebie around the thought.

I have been through so many tests these past few days ... catscan of liver, ultrasound of stomach and liver, different labwork, ekg.  Monday they are doing endoscope.  I have been found to have "fatty liver disease", luckily no other abnormalities with liver.  But, I may have to have liver bioposy done if symptoms continue.  I'd never even heard of that disease, plus when I think liver disease ... I think alcoholism.  As a nondrinker, I was surprised.   I continue in alot of pain .... but with my trusty heating pad.  We are really bonding.  I have been on a STRICT no fat, no carb, no protein diet.  In other words ... broth and jello for four days now.  Hey, the big benefit .... I'VE LOST FOUR POUNDS already this week. 

Now, enough about me .... it's time for your freebie.

You can download it at:  http://www.4shared.com/zip/jfWwjOER/dining_words.html

May your weekend be filled with fun, laughter and family.  And, for any of you out there in our "heat wave" please stay safe.

Hugs, Sue

I almost forgot the 4th of July

Oh my gosh ..... I just realized that I have not done a single July 4th wordart.  I'm bad!!!!!  Here's a quick one with all my apologies.  I just can't believe it is almost here and I just forgot.

Terrible, terrible .... afterall two of my grandsons are born of the same day, July 3rd.  Ryan is going to be 11 years old and Tristan is going to be 4 years old.

Here's a picture of the two boys.



Aren't they just cuties?  The oldest one is my second daughter, Angie's son and the youngest is my son, Drue's son.  Isn't it something that they are born on the same day.  Tristan was Ryan's birthday present.

Just got a call .... my ultra sound didn't come out to good.  Doctor called and they are scheduling an CT of my abdomen as soon as possible.  Now, I need to not worry!!!!!!  My pain is about the same, but tolerable.  I'm frustrated .... don't like doctors to start with or tests!!!!!

Swinging Free

I have just received permission to do this childhood poem.  I want to thank Av of http://maisytotes.blogspot.com for her wonderful comment concerning her mother.  She told me that her mother use to sing this to her grandchildren when she pushed them on a swing.

The poem reminded me of more than swings ... it brought my imagination back to springtime, flowers and fairies.

If you love to cook .... Miss Av has some very wonderful recipes for you to look at.  So, don't forget to drop by for a visit.  I have personally tried a couple and they are all DELICIOUS!!!!

Thank you again, Miss Av.

Stuck In The Middle

I have three children and one of the topics of conversation when they were little was ..... SOMEONE IS ALWAYS STUCK IN THE MIDDLE.  It didn't matter who it happened to be either.  There was always, always one of my "darlings" that felt they were being treated unfairly.

Today's freebie is dedicated to those moments of life.

Here is my preview:

I have made numerous versions of this with different elements .... why?????  Just because.

Again the other previews with the elements:

I hope there is at least one that strikes your fancy.

You can download all four free wordarts at:  http://www.4shared.com/zip/VmSxEY2q/stuck_in_the_middle.html

I am not sure I will be doing one tomorrow.  I am having a number of ultra sounds done this afternoon, labwork etc.  I have been in alot of pain for about two weeks now, with it getting worse by the day.  Didn't even going swimming yesterday ... instead went to the doctor.  My tests start at noon today.  Wish me luck ... and that they find out why I am in such pain.  Doing wordart to keep my mind off of my stomach.

Hugs always, Sue

Eyes of a Dreamer

I have a confession .... I am a dreamer.  I wish upon the first star that I see at night.  I gaze up at the moon and wonder about the worlds out there.

This freebie I actually designed for school because it is right around the corner ... yet .... as a dreamer myself I can see many, many uses for it.  I have done it with the little teddy bear and pencil as a school themed wordart, but I also wanted to give it as just the words ... for all the other layouts.

You can download this at:  http://www.4shared.com/zip/ZccANRjJ/eyes_of_a_dreamer.html

May all your dreams come true always,

Hugs, Sue

Needed a change of pace from all the "golf themed" freebies.  As well as, a break from my sewing.  This morning I have been up since about 5:00am working on my latest quilt.  I am getting there because I have eight squares to do of a total of thirty-eight.  I am in the process of making a queen size. 

Do enjoy doing this wordart alot more than sewing, but it was just calling me like crazy this morning.  I will post a photo of the finished product, I promise.

Todays theme is for summer and again little girls.  Chose this idea because tomorrow I am going to the pool in again with my Miss Allison.  Just the girls!!!!  And, I can't wait!!!!  Afterall, "swim babies" need pool water at least twice a week. 

You can download it at:  http://www.4shared.com/zip/5F0qWTzf/pigtails.html

I also want to thank Trina Clark of www.digiscrapskits.com for her cute summer little girl, as well as "sunshine and pigtails".  I am a big, big, big, big FAN of Trina's digital elements.  I have purchased so many of her elements.  And I just love them!!!!  Do make a stop at her site because YOU'RE GOING TO LOVE IT.

Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend and that summer love, sunshine and pigtails are making this monday just perfect.

Hugs, Sue

Golfing Challenge

There is nothing like a challenge to get all MY CREATIVENESS in fast forward.  Here are three more freebies I have created using the theme of golf.

You can download them all at:  http://www.4shared.com/zip/mDYwE_9G/kiss_my_putt.html
My poor brain has gone into overload with this "golf" .... I just can't seem to get it off of my mind.  I am thinking golf clubs, greens, carts, balls nonstop.  But, now my brain is TIRED .... I will continue adding to this theme during the next couple of days.

Hope all the golf enthusists out there are grabbing them up!!!!!!!  Don't forget to leave me some comments.  And if there are any other suggestions .... DO LET ME KNOW.

Hugs, Sue

Caveman Golf

Really quick because I am on my way to pick up my two baby grandsons, Tristan and Elijah and take them to the Splash Pad this morning.

Just another themed golfing wordart:  The word "wack-ca-do" is my creation.  Everyone needs to make up a word ever once in a while.  Just sounded like golf to me.  Golfers do "wack away" with those clubs at those poor balls.

You can download this one at:  http://www.4shared.com/zip/tPolOkFt/caveman_golf.html

Hugs to each and everyone of you.


Fairway To Heaven

Again, as I have said ..... I am in the mood for some humor in my wordart today.  Again, this one is dedicated to my new friend, Janet and the men of her family.

She suggested the cool phrase "Fairway To Heaven" and I love it.  Started off wanting to do something more spiritual .... but just got lost in the humor of the angry golfer and his proud caddy.

I don't know who I think is funnier .... the golfer or the caddy.  Who do you vote for?????

You can download them at:  http://www.4shared.com/zip/AFppWGq1/Fairway_To_Heaven.html

Thanks again, Janet.  I can't wait to see more of your suggestions and/or wants.

May your day be filled with love, laughter, silliness and hugs.

I'm smiling, Sue

Haven't Finished Yet

Teenagers are notorious for the ability to make you want to pull out your hair!!!!  They not only live in their own special world .... they do things or not doing things at their own SPECIAL TIME!!!!!

I use to get so frustrated with their ability to CANDIDLY and STRAIGHT-FACED let me know that they were big into the CONCEPT of DOING NOTHING ............ and yes, it could last for days!!!

Just a little humor .... now that I am wise.

I have done this wordart again in two ways .. with or without the element.  But, Miss Eyes is my favorite.  She just reminds me so much of my own "teenage" daughters.  And can you believe it!!!!  Now, two of my grandchildren have reached that golden age!!!  Abby's just turned 13 years old and Brandon's is now twelve.  Let the fun begin!!!!!

You can download this at:  http://www.4shared.com/zip/DTBV_RiP/havent_finished.html

I'm in the mood to just add some humor to my words today.  Hope you like it!!!!

Hugs, Sue

Dirt Roads

Now, it is just a fact that little boys go with dirt .... that one day become the country dirt road joyrides ... that can turn into just plain lost.  But, hey those back roads just mean plain "country fun".

I have done this freebie two different ways .... one with the little boy element and one with just the words.  There are so many future scrapbook pages this can fit.  I see ....... country roads,  I see ........ cake mix on top of a youngster's head, I see ..... dirt bikes, I see ..... just being lost and so much more.  Do have fun with this one.

You can download it at:  http://www.4shared.com/zip/QND92o8w/dirt_roads.html

Have a wonderful weekend.

Sunshine Moments

I just felt like doing one more .... why do you ask?????  It's so easy to answer.  My newest friend, Miss Janet has made me feel so creative.

I have always, always loved elements of children .... representative of love, fun, happiness, summer and so much more.  And especially little girls.  God, knew how much I'd love those "sugar and spice" angels he brought into my life.  My daughters now are my closest friends and my two granddaughters .... why they allow me to be "a little girl" all over again.

This wordart is for all those "girl friends, mothers, daughters and granddaughters" in our lives.  Aren't we ALL SO LUCKY!!!!!!

You can download her at:  http://www.4shared.com/zip/R7kooXg9/sunshine_moments.html

If this is your first time to my site, I WANT TO WELCOME YOU!!!!  Do come and sit a spell and explore.  I have so many freebies under different themes.  All there ... just waiting for you to grab.
Thank you for your continued friendships everyone.

Hugs, Sue

God Listens

 One of the things that I know about my newest friend is her faith is strong.  This newest wordart is dedicated to this and her daughter.

Janet has told me that her daughter is also going to college at Texas A&M, but that she works as a Family Camp Counselor.  I can't think of anything more wonderful then spending time with family's doing something that her daughter obviously loves.  I wanted this wordart to reflect that unbelievable importance of family.

The wordart is "God listens not to your words save when he Himself utters them through your lips".

I did this wordart in a set that I issued on March 21, 2012.  At the time, only through my own faith did I make it through a very difficult time.   Another time, I will speak of my mother .... but today is a time of "thankfulness" for all my new friends.

Janet ... this one is for YOU and your DAUGHTER.

You can download it at:  http://www.4shared.com/zip/EVlXXJ_L/god_listens_1_.html
And again, I will REPEAT .... any wordart ANYONE may want .... just let me know!!!!!

Hugs, Sue

You want me to do what!!!!!!

I continue to have some requests for personal wordart and I just love it!!!  Janet, again thank you for creating this new form of fun for me.

Janet's daughter is a "family camp counselor" and this just brought so many different images into my mind.  Now, this is something that I know something about.  As both a child and later as an adult I have been camping.  There were family trips with my family as a little girl, vacations when my own family was young and I was even previleged to go to a number of "girl scout" camps as a child.  I have never been a counselor, but I do remember how much I LOVED MINE.

This particular wordart I made it more "generalized" so that it could be used by all that love this great form of relaxation/gatherings.

You can download it at:  http://www.4shared.com/zip/yHM6JdsI/Clean_Up.html
Again, THANK YOU SO MUCH JANET.  And for any others out there, if there is any kind of WORDART that you may be looking for .... I'D LOVE TO CREATE THAT SPECIAL ONE FOR YOU, TOO!!!!!

Hugs, Sue

Aggie Character

I have had a special request to make a very unique wordart.  This for a handsome Senior Texas A&M golfer.  And, after much trial and error.  Plus, the looking up of "golf terminology" I am pleased to present this creation.

One of the ideas I wanted to create this around was what I call "Aggie Pride".  I do hope I succeeded.

So, for all the Aggie's out there.  THIS ONE IS FOR YOU!!!!!

Thank you so much for your suggestion for a wordart, Janet.  This was such a fantastic suggestion and it really had me being thinking.  My husband even laughed at me .... because the secret is now out.  I KNOW ABSOLUTELY NOTHING ABOUT GOLF!!!!!!

Hugs, Sue

The Photograph Repost

Yesterday I received a comment from a new friend and I want to welcome her personally to my home away from home.

Janet, I can't tell you how much your kind words have meant to me.  You are definately my inspiration.  Here is the wordart that you ask me to repost for you.  It is my pleasure.

You can download this at:  http://www.4shared.com/zip/eFFF3yF3/Picture_without_Speaking.html

I also received your other emails today, Janet and I will put on my thinking cap and design some wordart around your suggestions.

Just wanted to let you know too, I am a fellow Texan that has been transplanted to Iowa by choice.  When my husband and I retired we moved up here to be close to two of our children.  Our other child lives in Katy, Texas.  We still spend a ton load of time down south.

I will definately do some Aggie wordart for you, Janet.

Hugs always, Sue

Hidden Christmas Wish

Today I am spending the entire day with my granddaughter, Allison in celebration of her eighth birthday.  I will be picking her up at 7:30 am and from there I have a world wind surprise planned.  We are going to the park to paint, then to a lunch for two and finally to the pool to swim.

So, my canvas's, paints, old shirts, appetite, towels, bathing suits, presents and laughter are already packed and ready to go.

With that ... my idea for my wordart came.  It is around Christmas and all our blessings large and small.  Hope you like it.

Here is the preview:

You can download this at:  http://www.4shared.com/zip/CKl4DU2q/Christmas_Wish_1_.html

I did this both for granddaughter and grandson.  And, I know we are months and months away from Christmas .... it's just that Christmas Lists and Wishes are part of the magic of that season.

Well Boys


Now, baseball is not only for the little ones .... you know.  It is a game cherished by all age groups.  For the teenage/young adult male of our species .....


The vibrant male comes up to bat with confidence just oozing out of him ... he's determined, a little cocky and athletic.


This is my last one for today because there are a couple of baseball games in my future this afternoon.

I do hope everyone has enjoyed the baseball ones I've done this week.  They have been so much fun to create.

For any new friends that have just found my site .... welcome, welcome, welcome.  I have been offering free wordart for about five months now.  I have many different ones for you to chose from under many themes.

Do consider becoming a member and don't forget to leave some love.

Season Schedule

Calendar Schedule

Many years ago, in one of my baseball scrapbook pages I made this "Baseball Schedule" representing practice and rainout days.  Included was games and tournaments.  And by not putting a month, it could represent any month of baseball play.

Here is the baseball layout of Brandon that I did to give you an idea.

I also decided to include just the blank calendar should you want to put exact dates of games, etc.

You can download this in pgn format at:  http://www.4shared.com/photo/5fObl_2C/baseball_calendar.html

Have fun.

Just baseball

"A baseball game is simply a nervous
breakdown divided into nine innings"

Now, I promised more baseball themed free wordart today.  Another one of those wordart's that I can't take credit for .... this one I found yesterday on an adult's T-shirt that I ordered for myself.  It just cracked me up and I HAD TO BUY IT!!!!!  So, I thought I'd just pass it on to you guys.  Isn't it so funny!!!!!!!  Just my version of my new shirt.

Oh my gosh ....
I just realized I forgot to give credit to Trish at
for her beautiful alphabet I used for the word

If you haven't been to her site ....
go there right now!!!!

Her elements, alphabets and kits
are so fantastic.

I can see this one on so many baseball layouts .... especially those one's where the "Mom's of Baseball" are saying "please, please don't have him/her strike out"!!!!!!

Have fun with this one!!!!

Hugs, Sue

Baseball Coach Backgrounds

I am including a baseball layout that I did back in 2009 using the background that is another freebie for today.  Basically I used the background as frames and cut out stars to use as accents on this layout.  Just to show another way to use the background.

Because I have always loved these two backgrounds, I wanted to give them to you as freebies today.  I am not the creator of these and no not want to take credit for them.  I just want to pass them on.


Here is an example of both:

Hope you enjoy them as much as I have.  I plan to use them again in this year's baseball creations.
Hugs, Sue

Cheer for your favorite girl

If you're like me .... you not only watch the men and boys in your family, you also watch the girls.

For me, watching my granddaughter, Allison always makes me smile.  Little girls bring another element to baseball .... they stop in midrun if the lose their caps, they stop to get the dust of the tennis shoes, they pick flowers, they talk to their team mates on the field .... and they occasionally even play baseball.

You can download this at:    http://www.4shared.com/zip/PA8tvdsF/cheer_for_our_favorite_girl.html

Here is a photo or two of Miss Allison

Is that an "ouchie" on my thumb?

Now, I love playing catcher......


that BALL keeps going right through my glove!!!!

I crack myself up!!!!

Bat vs Ball

One of the heartbreaks of baseball is those "balls" that travel right through the bat like magic.  Do you know they call those STRIKES.  Now, I personally really believe magic happens and a spell is put on that bat just to frustrate the batter.  Afterall, that was a perfect swing .... and yet it doesn't connect with the bat.  Now, what is with this!!!!!

Here is preview for those classic baseball photos: 

You can download it at:  http://www.4shared.com/zip/XDXtzDta/bat_vs_ball.html

I am also including some "classics" taken at my grandson, Justin's baseball tournament this weekend.

Up to bat .....

The walk of shame ....

What happened, I thought I was going to hit a homerun??????

Can't hit the ball .... well, I can still get them out of third base!!!!

And ......

That's after only two weeks of not getting to play because I
sprained my ankle!!!!  I'm pretty super, huh


Hugs to all and hoping that you're enjoying baseball as much as I am.  Isn't he just the cutest guy ever.  Nana loves you Justin.
