Freebie Sneak Peek for May 28th

Hello everyone, it is that day of the week where we whet your appetite for this week's upcoming freebie.

Naomi has been busy at the drawing board and has created a brand new image; so, let's take a peek and see what she has in store for us this week.

Can you figure it out?  Can you?  Can you?  I think I made this one way too easy.

I hope that you will join me again on Tuesday as I reveal this week's freebie.

Until then,

So glad to be back!!

I would like to let you all know we made it home, over all the trip was very relaxing and we laughed a lot on the way home, (I will tell you about that in a little bit.)
During the MRI Michael had to have intravenous, they put patches over cream on both of his hands to numb the entry site but as it turned out Michael's veins were too small and they had to put it in his hand up further which really upset him, I watched as they put the " 10 sec medicine" they called it in the IV, Michael went to sleep crying and I managed to hold it together until he was totally out.  Phew it is so hard to watch as his little eyes start rolling.
When Michael woke up he had a wild reaction to the medicine, it was heart breaking to watch him flip around , screaming about wanting to go back to the MRI and totally unresponsive to any suggestion, there was no reasoning, he screamed constantly for 20 minutes.
 I left the room  for a couple of minutes to breathe as I was totally overwhelmed, when I went back I was very calm ... I walked over to Michael as he was kicking  his legs , reached down and pulled him into my arms and sat in the rocking chair with him and held him very tight... within 2 Min's he was calming. 15 min later we were able to leave with him. He couldn't walk yet so we rolled him around the hospital for about 45 minutes. He finally ate and Troy bought him webkinz.
Michael started talking about the Webkinz and asking questions so we knew Michael was back.... ACTUALLY he had totally flipped his mood, now he was on top of the world and couldn't stop talking for a minute...  LOL  It was hilarious and you would know how it did my heart good to see this after what I had just witnessed.
He did this all the way home in the car and Troy would make polite suggestions challenging Michael to see if he could read the rest of the Big Nate Book before he got to the boat, I had tears rolling down my face because if you seen the size of this book, hahahahaha... We just wanted a minute without talking but at the same time we were ecstatic Michael was so happy.  I should also mention it is also so unlike Michael to talk so much, it must have still have been the reaction.. I like this version much better....We were told one of us would have to sit back with him and within the first two hours nudge him if he were to fall asleep.... fall asleep!! LOL
So today we are going to relax at home and do absolutely nothing, over all it was a fantastic trip, Michael called it a mini vacation.
I will be back to show you some deals I got!
Michael got two hard cover Big Nate books instead of a toy at ToyZrus I was so proud of his choice... I was also proud that Michael now pays for the items  and now he  waits for the change, he is so amazing learning so much all the time.
I will take pictures of mine!!!! eeek! Great deals!!!
I will be by to visit you all later or in the morning,
have a fantastic day

Freebie - "Bobby's Bo-Bo"

Hello everyone.  It is Lisa here to provide you with this week's freebie.   Now there were only two guesses this week about what the sneak peek may reveal and I don't have a clue how she did it but Ike managed to figure out just what the image was. So, Ike please EMAIL ME with the subject "BOBBY'S BO-BO" and I'll send off a digital paper I've created.

And without further ado here he is...  

Now Bobby has been in the store for quite awhile lurking around under the name 'Hurt Toddler'.  He was tired of not receiving any attention for his hurt knee and caterwauled until I brought him out to get some loving attention from all of you wonderful ladies.  You know how terrible toddlers can be.  Anyways, now is your chance to give this little guy some love.

To get this week's freebie, just left click on the image to bring it up in its full size, then right click and choose 'save as'.

Now I was fortunate that two of Naomi's entourage had some extra time in their schedules to help out and make a card showcasing this annoying little monster sweet little boy (seriously you should have heard the racket he made.)

So this week we have Jennifer S. from Krafty Keepsakes showing us one way of using this image in a card...

Didn't she do a wonderful job?  I just love his little alphabet towel and the really interesting shapes she has chosen to use as a backdrop behind Bobby.  If you would like to see the details on this card you can head on over to Jennifer's blog.

Suze from Craftysuze also decided to help us out this week by sending in this card...

 Another sweet version showcasing Bobby's Bo-Bo.  I really love that Paisley paper.  I have some myself that I'm itching to use.  The sentiment is a perfect accompaniment.  If you would like to see the details on this card you can head on over to Suze's blog.

Now on the slight chance that some of you have already received this image as a freebie in the past, I wouldn't want you to walk away empty handed, so, if you would like to head over to my blog HERE, you can pick up a free sentiment that matches the tone of this image.

Well folks, that wraps it up for another Tuesday.  Thanks for stopping by everyone and a very special thank you to Jennifer and Suze who pitched in to help me out by creating wonderful cards to showcase Naomi's fabulous freebie.  Now, same as last time, if one or two of you have the time and would like the opportunity to work with one of Naomi's digis and have your project displayed here on Naomi's blog, please contact me and I'll get next week's freebie off to you as soon as I can.  See you on Saturday with next week's sneak peek.

Baby Boy and Girl Cards using Cricut

Good Morning!!!
I hope you all had a fantastic weekend, I took it easy watching movies and went to my sister's place for a relaxing BBQ... During the cooking stage with flames flying high and smoke as thick as factory smoke I said to Norma, " Do you think maybe we will end up ordering out?" She had two words for me,
"Have faith" ...
To my surprise, even as I write this everything came out totally flawless, the perfect amount of tenderness to the aspargus, potatoes, brussel sprouts and red onion and not one burn mark!!!!  The steak was melt in your mouth delicious!!! I still don't know how she did it for the evidence of the cooking process says I should have been eating ash.
June 30th, here on the Island they are having a Women in Business Trade Show and I have my table claimed. I have lots of cards already done so I am well ahead, I also have my business cards designed and  bought and June 30th will be the first day I get them out. I plan on having my own little shop here in Souris down the road. So exciting hey??
Today I want to show you two baby cards I made yesterday!
I made the cute little animals with my Cricut using the "New Arrival" cartridge and I used
Alley Way  "Alphabet Soup" stamps
I love the little critter's googly eyes , this month I missed out on my DT assignment for
 2 creative chicks and their theme is "Googly Eyes",
so maybe if I particpate in the challenge itself I figured it would be a nice make up!
2 Creative Chicks has a challenge every month with fun themes. To particiate go
I will be away for the next couple of days for the time has come for Michael to have his MRI, this MRI will determine if the damage is stemming from his back rather then his achilies tendons , cross all your fingers that in the fall Michael will only have to have the achilles tendons operated on in both feet rather than something more extensive, I would appreciate lots of prayers and positive thoughts...
Have a great day my peeps!!!
I will keep you updated as I am bring my computer!
