Calendar freebie in two languages!

I am happy to offer another calendar each month and this one turned out to be one of my very favorites. Working with Franziska Altmann's Snowberry Kit, I could see the intricate details and imagine how magical it would look on the screen. I get a lot of visitors from Europe and I wanted to make this one for them too! Click on the English or German preview to get the version you want. Enjoy!

Here is what I have on my desktop:

The cheese stands alone

Remember that silly little song? I'll bet no kid today even knows how it goes. It begins with "the farmer takes a wife" and ends with "the cheese stands alone." That's how my sad little bonus QP feels...not too many made it that far in the quest...and this was my favorite of my three (at least for today!) Grab it if you missed it! And go back a day if you missed the blog train entirely. It is too awesome to miss out on!!!!!

Here's the page I made with it.

Speed Scrap...and I wasn't late this time!

Angie, "Jeepmama" at SO hosted a speed scrap and this was what I ended up with. She tried hard to stump us, but we were too swift for her! Better luck next time!!! Bwah ha ha ha!

I used the Dec Mega kit from Scrap Orchard, which has a ton of great stuff.

Also, did a LO with the new "Twilight-inspired" kit by Ziska and Shauna called Sweet Deceit. I had not jumped on bandwagon regarding the books, but plan to read them. Here's why...

Yesterday after school, DD came flying in the door so excited to tell me something. She asked me to guess what she had with her. It was the first book, which they had started reading in class (just long enough to get the kids into it) She sat at the computer for about one and a half minutes, stopped and announced "I HAVE to read some more of that book. She read 140 pages of that book without putting it down for the night. This from a kid I fight with to read!

She is reading it again this morning as I write (on p 236). I am astonished and if I could hug the author I would! My baby has made the leap into loving reading!
