hi all :o) i hope you guys had a WONDERFUL and HAPPY Christmas/holiday! We did...it was so much fun...lots of good times and great memories! It wasn't too hectic this year...and that was so nice! i think it had alot to do with the fact that we scaled it back a little...fewer gifts...smaller budgets...more homemade stuff, etc.! We pretty much just made it about the kids :o) for Christmas dinner (well...lunch and dinner LOL)...i made homemade enchiladas (that was a first for me)...and they turned out soooooo yummy! Just found a recipe online...and then made a few changes...and voila! of course, had to have some guacamole and pico de gallo on top...and basically - a ONE dish meal (one HUGE dish - he he...and very little mess!)! We also made cupcakes for Santa and some mini bundt cakes with chocolate ganache! that was about it!
alright...how about a free desktop? LOL! this one was created mostly from the WINTER WONDLERLAND collection at the Shabby Shoppe!

I hope you enjoy them! And...if you are new to digi scrapping and would like to work with our free desktops...I promise they are super simple! You will need some type of graphics software that allows you to work with .png and .jpg files! The file you download will be a ZIP file...and you will have to first 'unzip' or 'unpack' it before opening the desktop files. I will paste a couple of FAQ's from the Shoppe here that might help out! and...we also always recommend our piece-a-cake album tutorials! even though the end results are a bit different...the concepts and techniques are the same...and very helpful...so be sure to check that out :o) here are a few links!
I hope you find this information helpful...and that you have fun working with our free monthly desktops :o)
Alright...i am back to answering emails...and working on a new free kit for the SP site (expect to see it towards the end of January...beginning of February...depending on how much design-time i get between now and then - he he)!
As always - thanks a bunch for stopping by...and we wish you the HAPPIEST and most BLESSED new year ever!
