Ava's Here!

Page made with Dear Mother Kit by Aimee of Kjoi Studios

I no sooner sent out email announcements with a photo and I got back a sweet layout from my CT member Berny. That's one of the perks to being in the great digi-scrap community! Look at that adorable rabbit.

Freebie Quickpage

If you've been here before, you know how it works - when I release a new kit I post a matching freebie on my blog! Yesterday I released "At The Gym" at Stone Accents Studio - so here's a quickpage made with the kit. The previews of the kit are below in the second slideshow. This one has batik influenced and modern papers which were really fun and there are several different elements including a "leather" laced up overlay, MP3 players, a zipper and a webbed belt that make it appropriate for all kinds of fun layouts! It's on sale at 35% off for the next two weeks here at SAS.
Download Quickpage (in png format) HERE and please no direct sharing and no hot linking - thanks!
Don't miss the SAS newsletter that just came out today - it has lots of freebies from all of the talented designers. There's another free quickpage in there from me to match my Spring Breezes Free with purchase kit that's now featured at SAS. Three of my CT's layouts are also featured this week, Linda with "My Mother Said", Jeanette with "Rock Star", "60 years" and "James" and Jess with "Pumpkin Patch".

Okay, I've avoided this as long as I can, the weekend is over now and I have to face this. Here's what I need to do.
1. Link your tagger and list these rules on your blog
2. Share 7 facts about yourself on your blog, some random, some weird.
3. Tag 7 people at the end of your post by leaving their names as well as links to their blogs.
4. Let them know they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog .

1) My husband and I met at the Mill which is part of the Millstream name of our house. It was a restaurant then and he was the keyboard player in the band. (Does that make me a groupie?)
2)When I was little I loved spinach because my mother put mayonnaise on it - I know it sounds weird, but for the longest time I thought that's how everyone ate it. If you want your kids to eat their spinach - try it!
3) I ran away the first day of school (kindergarten). I got there and saw all the kids and turned around and ran home! Yes, I walked to school alone the first day (we all did then, oops did I just give away my age?)
4) I have a rather large herb garden, but I don't really cook.
5) I have a new laptop - it's pink and it's name is Gidget (long story lol)
6) I was called a "tree hugger" at a public meeting once
7) My first car was a Hillman (ever heard of it?)

Now for my 7 people (Linda if I could tag you back, you know I would lol) Of Course I'll start with 4 of my CT members: Jessica, Mitsybelle, Kathy, Julia, and then Livia and I have to leave it at 5 because everyone else I know that has a blog just got tagged also!

Just when I thought I had filled all of my CT positions I got an email from Julia M. After looking at her layouts I knew I had to make room for her original style on my CT. So please welcome Julia M. to the Millstream Cottage CT! Look for her wonderful layouts in the slideshow.
I will be back later because I got tagged by Linda (I'll get you for this Linda ;). So you'll get to learn 7 things about me that you probably don't know and then I get to tag 7 other people - look out CT (lol)!
