Family Game Night - iRemember Quickpages Freebie!

I'm wondering if there are very many iRemember users out there?  This software for Mac scrapbooking doesn't do every action that PSE8 does, such as blurring edges; but for layouts and even some designing, it is spectacularly user-friendly and cost-effective.  It is my favorite software by far.  I don't see many quickpages for it, though, so I decided to make some.  Included in the Money Game Quickpages download are two iRemember quickpage templates, as well as the same two pages in PNG form for any other software you wish to use.  Let me know if you are an iRemember user!

There's nothing like a family game night.  My kids would rather play a board game as a family than play Wii or watch TV.  If you haven't played a board game lately, why not tonight?  Pop some corn, heat up some hot chocolate, and make some memories!  Oh, yeah, and then scrap them!!

Thoughts As We Approach Veterans' Day & Thanksgiving

"We have been the recipients of the choicest bounties of Heaven. We have been preserved, these many years, in peace and prosperity. We have grown in numbers, wealth and power, as no other nation has ever grown. But we have forgotten God. We have forgotten the gracious hand which preserved us in peace, and multiplied and enriched and strengthened us; and we have vainly imagined, in the deceitfulness of our hearts, that all these blessings were produced by some superior wisdom and virtue of our own. Intoxicated with unbroken success, we have become too self-sufficient to feel the necessity of redeeming and preserving grace, too proud to pray to the God that made us! 

It behooves us then, to humble ourselves before the offended Power, to confess our national sins, and to pray for clemency and forgiveness."

Proclamation Appointing A National Fast Day
--President Abraham Lincoln 1863

Scrapbooking Christmas Cards

Would you just love to have those perfect, handmade Christmas cards to mail out this year?  You were planning on getting on that project back in July to have them all ready for Christmas, then you thought if you started in September you'd still be OK.  Now it is November, and the closest thing you have to a home-made Christmas card is a folded piece of red paper.  Fear not!  Check out for beautifully crafted Christmas cards.  The work is done for you!  :)
