First...let me just toot the train whistle...another of my talented creative team gals got Digi Pick of the Day! Uh huh...go Raji...shake it baby shake it oh yeah..shake it baby shake it! That the way uh huh uh huh we like it...uh huh uh huh! Whoooooooot!

She did an awesome layout using the same kit as Deb did...my Creative Expression kit. I am tickled beyond words. I have the BEST girls on the web man!

























It's Fridayyyyyyyy! Wooohhooooo! Just one more day and the baby shower for my stepdaughter will be overrrrr! Don't get me wrong. I love baby showers. I love my daughter. But can I just say "holy cow batman....I am tired?!@?!?" Everyone who was supposed to be helping me (except my SIL) has backed out on me. Stuff came up. Well...that is all well and fine...but what the heck am I supposed to do with that? Just what I am doing. Everything by myself. So....got the food, cake will be picked up tomorrow am as well as balloons. I am scrubbing the house today. Made the diaper cake and bought decorations yesterday. Let me tell you...the diaper cake was hysterical. First...my friend who taught me is my own Martha Stewart. She always has everything together. She is a clean freak. She is super crafty. All the things I am not. So...we were sitting on her floor...after a morning shopping with two cranky boys mind you. Now...to make this thing...you have to hold all the diapers as you keep overlapping them to make a circle. Then you tie a ribbon around them....I don't see how you can make them by yourself. After many attempts....we finished and it looks great. I just need to add the little touches I bought today. Here is what one looks like...I will show you mine after the shower. There are many diff versions...this is the closest to what I am making.



























Now...here are a couple layouts I have done:


This one using my friend Kim Smith's Mello Papers...available at Scrappin Digi Kreations




















This one using Khristi Schmidts Cucumber Splash available at The Daily Scrap
























This one using SaraAmarie's CareFree kit available at 3Scrapateers






























Now...how bout a blog freebie? I must say....I was a little disappointed last time. I had over 200?!?!?!?!? downloads...and hardly any comments. I always comment when I grab a freebie. It makes the person feel like someone cares. Kind of like how I have taught my boys to say thank you when someone gives/does for them. It is good manners for pete's sakes. Oh well...I am still giving, so it can't bother me too much. I might start thinking of a new way to give out my freebies though...especially my bigger ones.

Here is the preview:







Here is the link: download here



















Don't forget to scroll down and see the deals I am having at Digital Freebies too. I have 7 kits that I am retiring or changing...available for $7.99. I also have a deal that if you buy any of three kits and forward the thankyou email to me...I will send you the corresponding alpha.


Hope you all have a fabulous day.

DigiBrandi said...

I admit I sometimes forget to comment - mostly, because the download opens in the same window instead of a new one so I forget to go back and comment after doing the download. But, I remembered to tell it to open in a new window this time so I could comment. Thanks! :)

Kim said...

Now, a diaper cake is something I'd not heard of before. Took me a minute to figure out it wasn't actually something you eat! ROTFL Sounds like it's going to be a fabulous shower. :)

Beautiful layouts! :)

Very cute freebie! Thanks! :)

Very nice! Thanks a bunch!

rubyqhammer said...

Thank you for the freebie. That cake looks cool. I have never seen one before. I'm glad you showed the photo, I thought at first that you wrapped diapers around a real {edible} cake. I wondered how that could be cute, but now I see {ah ha} that the entire cake is made of diapers. I hope to remember that one as a gift for the next baby to come along.

I agree it is only polite to at least say thanks! So.......THANKS!
You can never have to many stitch elements. I also took the freebie for the unnamed kit which was cute too.

RosieB said...

Great stitching freebie! Thank you

LeeAnn J. said...

Wow, you are one busy lady. Hope all goes well with the shower. I have decided if you plan like you are doing it all yourself anyway, then if someone 'decides' they have time to help, you are now in the plus column timewise. Thanks for taking the time to make the freebie. I love it!

The stitching is great, Tracy - thanks! I must admit that while I try to remember to leave thank-yous, sometimes I am in my visit-all-sites-on-daily-download-list mode and I forget to thank those generous, creative souls who make it all possible.
So again, thank you, thank you, THANK YOU!
