DSD ScrapMatters Blog Train--Woooot wooooo!

Hey everyone! Wow, can *you* believe it's November and iDSD already? I really can't!

So, the amazing ScrapMatters team is hosting a blog train (that's why you're here, right?), and we're showing off our amazing new Collab, Many Thanks. The kit is FREE this weekend with a $20.00 purchase, or, of course, you can pick it up on it's own...but come on...isn't there $20 worth of stuff you want at ScrapMatters? I know I've got that much and then some on my list!!!'s a preview of that awesome kit...

Anyway, if you are following the train, you should have arrived here from Quietangelsb's blog. You are now here, with me, Becca, aka becca372. Thanks for stopping by to visit with me today!

You know, I was talking with my oldest DD (she's 3) the other day about Thanksgiving, and she asked me what it was. I explained that it was a day for all of us to think about the things that make us feel special and loved, and the things that we love. She listed off a couple of things, like loving mommy and daddy, and then she said "And my Grandma Cookie loves me" (Grandma Cookie is *my* grandmother, her great-grandma). It was the sweetest thing. So we now have plans to make up a special card to send to Grandma Cookie for Thanksgiving...the funnier part? Aerin then says to me "We can just tell her on Facebook!". Oh, out of the mouths of babes! How to explain to her that Grandma Cookie doesn't use a computer? LOL! We've got plans to put it up anyway, because my auntie will see it, and pass the message along...So, anyway, I'm the cliched person who is ever so incredibly grateful for my family. Even more so, in a sad footnote, because I just lost my other grandmother, and I know how lucky I was to have her as a vibrant, sweet, loving part of my life for 33 years. So, cherish the family you have, give them big hugs and pass on your love to them throughout this season of the year!

And now, for the reason you are REALLY freebie!(sorry, this link is no longer available) I whipped up a simple cluster frame for you (preshadowed), and then couldn't decide if I liked it better horizontal or vertical-so you are getting it BOTH ways, because I'm just crazy like that! (and keep scrolling to the end of the post for your next stop on the train!)

I hope I'll be seeing you around ScrapMatters this weekend...I just know you won't be able to resist the 40% off sale, the Speed Scraps and Chats, and all the amazing challenges, including our awesome Scrap-a-Thon! Come check it out, and join all of us in our addiction to the greatest digi-site around!!!!!

and don't forget:

Oh, and the next stop on the blog train is with Jill, aka Jillyfish. If for some reason, I gave you a bad link, or something happens, and you get derailed somewhere along the way, head on back to the ScrapMatters blog, for the master blog train schedule, and get yourself back on track! There are some fabulous goodies out there today!

Thanks for stopping by!!!
