A Little Update, Previews, Blog Train and a Freebie!

I'm sad I know......so not good at this blog thing. Wish I could say I'd update more but we all know that won't happen lol.
Need to get this out...................some one has taken over my 11 year old!! I don't like what has replaced my sweet, kindhearted little boy. Well he's still there but so is a pouty, argumentative, snotty thing that sometimes takes over his body. Will this stop? Am I know officially on my way to dealing with a preteen? I hope not, I am so not ready for this, lol. I want to be the only drama queen in my house (of course if he read this he would be very offended about the 'queen' so I guess he would be a drama king......not the same ring to it though).
Mini rant over..........on to exciting things like the weather. It's trying to warm up here, the temp hit the low 50's and may hit 60 tomorrow!! Of course they are talking rain for the weekend, when else right?

Scrapping News!!
At Scrap Orchard the new challenges are up for the month of March. The appletini's (that's us) have a really fun challenge for the month. Each week we are posting 2 4 x 6 templates to help you create a brag book. The templates are free and if you miss a week that's ok because we are leaving all the links active until March 30 to give folks lots of time to play.
Shauna has a new collab out with Franziska called Delicate Garden (talk about making my CT duties easy, lol) that is so pretty with dried roses and wonderful textures, gorgeous colours......well I mean it's Shauna and Franziska.......gorgeous textured papers are a given.

Kami has two really neat alphas that will finish off any layout with ease. Definitely will go in the 'use a lot' folder with their versatility.

Sunshine Studio has their all new challenge thread hopping. New challenges, new points system and lots of fun. Make sure to check them out!

Freebie Quick Page!!
OK, now at the top I mentioned a blog train didn't I? Well Ziggle Designs and Polka Dot Plum had a kit called To The Nines. They have decided to retire this kit but wanted it to go out with a bang. As a result both CT's have created Quick Pages using this kit and all you have to do is visit each blog to collect your page. Pretty simple huh?
Either click on the image or the link below for my page.

Now after me you can head on over to Bec's blog http://www.becsnaps.blogspot.com/ to pick up her amazing page!! Just keep in mind many of us are in different parts of the world so a page may not be up right away.

Have fun!!! I hope I'll be back sooner as well...........

Ah, 11 year olds...that's the magic age. My DD went through the same thing. It leveled off after about 6 months, so hang in there!
