MIA---but have a freebie

Where has time gone? I just looked and saw I haven't posted since the 8th of September!! Good to tell I'm back at work, the time to do all this just isn't there.

On to real life news....................
The house is sold, signed the papers Monday and the 'sold' sticker went on that evening. It was bittersweet though. I cried, tears of relief and of sadness. Change is good, but scary. The unkown looms before me but the B-man and I will make it through.

So where am I going? I have no clue, LOL. Yep, no arrangements thus far. I looked at 2 condos last weekend, one to purchase and one to rent. Think I'm leaning toward renting for right now, too much is going on so I think that may be my safest bet for right now, plus the rent is guaranteed for five years. I'm thinking after one I will know what I want. All this sounds great right? Well, there are a few things holding me back, the ex's former business.......somehow I got tangled up in the mess that is ongoing (I had nothing to do with the business, just have to prove that to the government) so I need to get me cleared out of that and get at my money then I can move on and move in, kwim?

I've graduated!!! Yep had my appointment at the cancer clinic on Thursday and I've hit 2 and half years without any recurrance so I now don't have to go back for another 6 months. On another good note, I have also passed my 'danger zone' with regard to recurrance, I have now plateaued meaning I am no longer in the high risk group so yeah me!!!!

*Scrapping News*

Yep, I have a bit of it, that'll teach me to be gone so long. So I'll just post previews and there is some nice stuff that has come out.

Shauna of Pineapple Plantation Designs has created this wonderful fall kit. I just love the deep oranges and browns in this kit. Available at Scrap Orchard
Kami of Ziggle Designs paired up with Becky of B~Creative Designs to bring you Feels Like Home. There are some really unique elements and the colours will suit any scrapping style. Available at Scrap Orchard. Franziska Altmann has returned from her vacation and just released her latest kit, Cutie Pie. There are daisies, acrylic and a denim frame in this versatile kit. You can pick it up at either Scrap Orchard or Sunshine Studio. Don't forget Sunshine Wonder Week will be back this month!! It will begin on the 28th of this month.

My latest layouts are at the top, I've updated my slide. Thanks for looking!!

Now on to my freebie offereing for you. It's a template of course, LOL. I have been dabbling in papers but want to practice some more before I post any.

I was just reading your last blog over the weekend and was getting ready to ask you about the house...LOL! Glad to hear it sold. Good idea on the renting, too...no need to rush into anything.

Congrats on the clean bill of health, too...I'm sure that was a load off!
