Special Announcement

Have I got something special for you all. Do you like what you see in this preview?
Well if you do I hope that you will come over to K-Joi Studios and join me in the Color Challenge that I am hosting for the month of December. Just for participating in the challenge you will get this kit for free. When I picked the colors for this kit which are called Christmas Lights, I had a really hard time deciding what to do to as a posting bonus for doing the challenge. Then I just couldn't stop making things for the kit, I kept thinking of other things that would be really cool in the kit, and after 2 weeks of trying to get it done, IT'S DONE finally and decided I couldn't pick what to give out so I am giving the whole kit away. Computer problems, personal problems, but I finally got it done. And cause it took me so long, I am going to extend the challenge to the first week in Jan, to give you all time to do it with all the Holiday plans that will be coming up.
You are probable saying, well what is the challenge? LOL The challenge is really easy all you have to do is do a layout using the color pallet below or make a free mini kit that others can download.
Post your kit or layout in the gallery at K-Joi Studios, making sure to post in the challenge section in the forum so that I will know you completed your challenge and then I will get you the links for the kit. What could be easier than that. I hope you all will come join me.

Announcement 2

Check it out

We woke this morning to a gorgeous snow fall. The first one of the year. I have a layout I did to share with you but first some news.
I just wanted to say thanks to everyone who gave me comments on my disastrous Halloween and to let you all know that on Saturday morning we went back to the vets and after about 2 hours we were able to get Smokey in the car and on our way home. So he is home very safe and sound and I might add very happy. God love um. LOLMy daughter, Kimberly, was just so excited to see the snow. She really hasn't had much experience with all the snow stuff. LOL Yeah in snowed in NJ but not like here in Upstate NY. It would snow and most cases within a couple days was gone. If it stayed there really wasn't much and turned to ice soon afterward. This is nice fluffy snow, Frosty type snow. :-)

I have a brand new kit in the store at Kjoi Studios and will be in Studio Style Design by mid week. It's called Tinsel Town. I had a lot of fun doing this kit.
Here is a preview.
I will have a new freebie for you either later today or tomorrow morning I just have some finishing touches to do on it.

My Horrific Halloween

I have had the worse Halloween/Anniversary ever. Yes my 8th Anniversary was yesterday and the day was just plain awful. First the dreaded period started, now that is always a wonderful thing to get on your Anniversary, then I woke up with a terrible cold. We had made an appointment for our cat to get fixed and he had to be at the vets between 7 - 8 am. My husband works nights so he had to get up to take the cat the vets cause I needed to stay home and get out daughter off to school.
I had ordered my husband a cake for our Anniversary, we went to pick it up and I had ordered it from the wrong Wegmans. We only had a little bit of time cause we needed to get to school for our daughter's Halloween parade. Plus there is terrible construction on the most direct route to take, but we made it back in time for the parade, after the parade we figured we would go to her class room and spend some time there before taking her home. WRONG, you had to be put on a list in order to go to her class room, now no where in any paper work that I recieve did it say you had to be on a list in order to go to the class room after the parade. OK we wait around till 3 pick her up and we go off to the Vet to pick up the cat. We get the beloved Smokey from the vet and we decide that why don't we let him out of his cage into the car, well the door didn't get shut in time and the freakin cat bolted out the door and you know the vet is in the country and the car parked right next to the woods. So the cat took off into the woods, mind you we didn't leave the vets till 4:50 to get home so the baby could eat before going trick or treating at 5:30. For almost 2 hours my husband roamed around in woods full of prickers trying to find the cat. NO CAT. So we left went trick or treating, after that we went back to the vets, mind you the vet is 20 minutes away. Still couldn't get the cat. What an aweful day. I love my cat.
We get up the this morning, I am sicker than a dog with an aweful head and chest cold. Off to the vets we go to try and get the cat again. We get there, I hear him meowing, I finally see him and get him to come close enough to grab him, couldn't get him in the car fast enough, before he got away from me. Now my finger is bleeding all over the place, he took a nice chuck out of my finger, scratches across both middle and ring finger and the cat is back in the woods. Then I notice the vet had leases hangin on a post outside, I grab one of them and 20 minutes later coaxed the cat back out of the woods, with a dish of food and put that lease on his neck. He is home safe and sound now pigging out in the kitchen on food. Let's hope the rest of today goes better, atleast we are off to a good start with the kitty being home, which makes me very happy.

Now on to your Nov Collab kit from Aspiring Digi Designers.
Here is my part of the kit After Dusk

As you all can see

by going to a lot of blogs Halloween has arrived. Me I am not that proficient in html to be able to change my backgrounds for the holidays, thou I would love too, just not enough time to do everything I want to do. LOL BUT I have a brand new kit and freebie for you all. Cool huh, I thought so. I love Halloween, it's my favorite day of the year. Why? Cause it's the only day of the year you can be whom ever you want to be and nobody makes fun of you. It's also supposely the only day of the year where the dead can walk among the living and if that means that my mom can walk beside me for one day of the year, I am all for it.
Just a bit of Halloween (I know, I know I couldn't come up with a better name).12 papers and 25 different elements. I love this kit, you get a little bit of scary and a lot of cutey for all those Halloween photos. See the paper - purple with the house and moon on it, I left the house and moon as a seperate overlay so you can remove it if you want and just use the purple paper.
I also have some really cool Monster Pics Frames and a Halloween freebie for you all. The Pumpkin patch border is part of the kit.

Then I have a great freebie for you all, a quickpage and some Halloween buttons. But it seems it's taking 4 share for ever to upload so might be awhile before you can download it.

Then if you can find time leave me some love when you download. Opinions are also appreciated.

Sweet Story to share

Last August when we found out that my husband was going to retire from the Military; we explained to our daughter; Kimberly, who was 3 at the time, that we would be moving home to where her grandparents, her Nana and other family members lived. She asked me one night if she could get a cat. (we had had 3 cats since her birth but they slowly passed away, we lost the last one in July 2007 when we moved from McGuire to Fort Dix). I told her yes once we get moved and settle we will get your a kitty. Then she proceeds to say, mommy it has to be white, have ears and a tail. LOL that was so funny.
We moved home and kept putting off getting a kitty. Going thur the animal shelters is no easy task, nor is it cheap. But something kept up from getting a cat, till July. Our neighbors were moving out. They had 3 cats, 2 dogs and some kind of bird. While taking with the girl that lived there, she told me that 2 of the cats they were going to be taking to the shelter cause they were unable to keep them. I talk with my husband and we decided we would take those two cats. I can't stand for any animal to have to go to the shelters any where. Kimberly was so excited to find this out. God was looking out for my daughter I can tell you that. One of the cats, Angel, is just as white as white can be. She is pure white, with one green eye and one blue eye. Very fisty cat too I might add.

She is just what Kimberly asked for, a white cat with ears and a tail. LOL She is one gorgeous cat. And then there is Smokey. (All growing up we had cats, and lots of them sometimes, my mom was a cat lover and all the cats that I owned where named Smokey. Everytime one would pass away, we would get another one and I would name it Smokey). How weird is all of this to you all too. LOL Smokey is a lover. The neighbor told me that he was an outdoor cat and that they found him on the side of the road a baby kitten, they hand feed him and everything, but always stayed outdoors. I just love him to death, he is so freakin funny. he will climb up on your chest and lick your face and even your lips, I know that is grose to some people but I find it so cute, sometimes. I really don't think they ever let him in the house or feed him cat food. Cause when we got him, his fur was all matted and grose. Now that he is been eating cat food, he has no more mats, his fur is just as soft as can be. Funny thing about him is, is feet and head are bigger than the rest of him LOL, he not very proportioned LMBO.

And this is a picture I took last night. I love this picture. They are both asleep.

Hello Everyone

OK some weeks, I really stink at bloggin' LOL. It's been a wild couple of weeks. It all started with my baby's 5th Birthday. We had a combined birthday party with my cousin April and her two kids. Brasen and Taylor. They were both born in Sept. It was a really nice party. Lots of people and the kids had a blast. Check out the puss on my birthday girl
Doesn't she just look so happy.
Here is Brasen and his sister Taylor. Brasen and Kimberly are the same age. If you ask Kimberly if she has a brother she will tell you Brasen. They are very close. They went to pre-school together and are in the same Kindergarten class.

Then we had the first day of school. Which I survived but not by much I can tell you that. I was so worried all day long it wasn't funny. All I could think was she wasn't going to get enough to eat and that she would get on the wrong bus. But I was wrong on both parts. She got on the bus and didn't even turn around to say goodbye to me or her daddy. All she wanted to do was go to school. How funny they are.
Her first bus ride to school

First day of school, which was only a couple hours and we got to go to school with her. Meet her teachers, principal and some other teachers at the school. We got to have lunch we with her and then we all went home.

And last week, every day I said I was going to blog and I didn't, I always got busy doing something else. I was really bad on Thursday and Friday, I decided I was going to have those days to myself. I watched more TV in those 2 days then I have in the last 10 years. You know TV during the day is very boring LOL.

I used a lot of what he liked in this kit. I am sure your going to love it, as I do. And a long with the new kit is a freebie that matches it.
