Miss Me?

I've taken a little break from my computer....needed to give my arthritic neck and right hand a break...seems like I have been away for a month when it hasn't been 2 weeks!  I've been binge watching a series (5 seasons of 20+ episodes each season) of Pretty Little Liars...totally addicted to this TV Crime drama...ROFLMAO! Guess I just have that kind of personality where I get addicted quickly....glad I can't do any or not!
It has been typical July in Texas with the heat and high humidity this year...not officially hit 100 at the airport, but all the surrounding areas have hit it several times already, including the one I live in, and the temps have not dropped below 80 at night in a while now....sooooooo...I am staying inside as much as I can. (good reason to watch my Netflix too...right?)
I did manage to create a birthday page for my "first" nephew Jason on his birthday the 16th...born 39 years how time flies, he is a grown, married man, father of 3 wonderful kids of his own, the one that started calling me Aunt you Jason.  Here is the page I created for him using a photo from his wife's Facebook of him "aping" for her....LOL...I used a kit from A [space] Between called Birthday Wishes.
A few days back I created a QP for Miriam's Scraps using her soon to be released Autumn kit (when she returns from her summer break) I called simply pretty...if you would like it...go to her website to download it.
Here it is with a photo of my 2 greatnieces...Annabeth and Eliza (or Ziza as Annabeth calls her)...I used a filter called canvas on it and it looks really great in a larger size...not so much in this smaller one.
Here's the same photo in a QP by (will have to find this and add later...sorry)
Here are a couple more QPs that are freebies on Miriam's Scraps that I created using the upcoming kit
Well, as you can see, not been very active, but I hope to remedy that soon, guess I will get off here and finish up some things I need to more with y'all next the meantime...make lots and lots and lots of memories to share with us. Have a wonderful weekend upcoming! Hugs, Mat


  1. Thought you were quiet already, but you are right to take a break now and then.
    Gosh, you are a detective lover too. This month there is a detective every evening on 1 channel, so we are treated LOL.
    Have a wonderful weekend and thanks for your visit and comment!

  2. Boa tarde, querida amiga Mat!
    Muito obrigada por sua visita!
    Hoje é dia de limpeza geral aqui em casa.
    Estamos, minha ajudante e eu, um pouco atarefadas.
    Mat, gostei muito de suas molduras, estão lindas!
    Querida amiga, desejo a você e a sua família um fantástico fim de semana!
    Abraços, Neli.

    Good afternoon, dear friend Matt!
    Thank you for your visit!
    Today is general cleaning day here at home.
    We, my assistant and I, a little busy.
    Matt, I really enjoyed their frames are beautiful!
    Dear friend, I wish you and your family a fantastic weekend!
    Hugs, Neli.

  4. We all need a little break now and then. It's good to see you back and creating. Your scrap layouts are lovely. The QP's are wonderful too. I can't wait to see the new kit that matches them.

    It's been hot here too, but not as hot as Texas, thank goodness. Today, though, is just wonderful. It's a bit cooler and cloudy, very comfortable.

    I backed up all my PC files yesterday, so today I want to spend a little time thinning them out and making more space on my laptop.

    I also want to bake a batch of cookies using the cookie dough that I bought a while ago for a school fundraiser. Freezers are wonderful. haha.

    You have a wonderful day, hugs, Edna B.
