QuickPage and Preview

My best cyberpal okiedee created a QP from my Neopolitan Kit and I am just thrilled with it. With her permission I am sharing it with you:) It is available in 12x12 size or 8x8 size...pick your poison! Both are in .png format so remember to let the page load. Don't you just love the scalloped picture frame!!!!
Thanks bundles okiedee...I love it!
Here's the preview:



I've been an ice-fishing widow almost all week:( And now this weekend too! But I don't really mind 'cause it gives me more time to play and create. I wouldn't mind all the fishing if we could have at least 1 meal every week or so but according to our grandson Mitch, "Papa is the 'kiss of death' to fishing". And I can't help laughing, either! Two of our grandsons Rick (16) and Mitch (15) have had their shacks on the ice in the harbor for about a month and they are fish catching fools. Those boys have been having a blast and catching a lot of fish too. The only bad thing is when 'Papa' goes there to fish with them and everything comes to a screeching halt. Mitch says he hates it when the door opens and Papa is there 'cause he knows they're done for the day...lol
He must have bad 'fish-karma'.

But that sure doesn't stop him from trying. Earlier in the week he had me search the internet for a purple lure but it had to be the right shade of purple which he couldn't explain. Some friend of a friend of a guys bil's ex-wife was catching huge freakin' fish...and lots of them...on a purple lure...sigh
Now today before he left he talked to his brother and chartreuse was mentioned. They were goin' fishin' together. Lordy! He asked me about chartreuse and all I could recall was it being ugly and a pukey yellow-green color. DH thought it was lime green. Internet to the rescue!
Did you know that to baby boomers the color chartreuse used to be yellow-green. It still is...it's now called yellow chartreuse. The newer, improved, power-packed regular chartreuse is now more like a lime green...only darker and it's simply called chartreuse. So now the hunt for the perfect chartreuse lure is on! I know you all find this as fascinating as I did...sheesh!

I just want to know when can I eat some fish for pete's sake! And the man has every piece of fishing equipment known to man...electronic or not! He has this thing that tracks his lure in the water...it beeps and flashes and changes colors when a fish is getting near. He gets so excited when it starts cranking...oh...here comes a fish...oh man, it's getting closer...and closer...c'mon baby, come to papa...and the lights are flashing faster and faster and changing colors and it's beeping like a nuclear warning device and yes...he's gonna strike...his pulse is racing and he's practically salivating...and the fish eats his minnow and moves on! Man, dh has some great fish stories...roflmaopimp. But I'm still hungry for fish! Living on Lake Michigan, I refuse to buy it!

My extra free time hasn't been idle...I'm working on a new kit and even have a name for it. It's called AshleyB after my beautiful granddaughter:) She is a twin to Mitch and full of spit and sass! I do have a preview for you and am hoping you'll fall in love with it and wait with bated breath til' I'm finished.
This is my best stuff yet as I feel I get a bit better with each new item I do. I'm really taking my time with this one and have been doing a lot of exploring and playing and experimenting in PSP. This kit I have made very richly textured papers and they are finished. A few elements and 1 alpha are also done. But I have many more elements planned for this one:) I hope you like what you see.
Here's the preview:

Thanks for visiting me and I love reading your kind and encouraging comments...I do appreciate each one of them! I hope you're all having a wonderful weekend everyone and I'm taking tomorrow off in order to prepare for and watch the Daytona 500 and see that oh so cutie pie Dale Jr. WIN the race:)

Gaye said...

Hey Mollie!! Great kits! I only saw the end of the race -- had to work but watched during my supper break -- poor Jr.!!! I like Harvick but really wanted to Mark to win!! If they'd only throw a caution at just the right time.... Again, great digiscrapping!!!
