"Silly Summer Fun" Quickpage Freebies

I have another couple of quick pages for you today, this time using Lisa Minor's kit "Silly Summer Fun". This is a really cute kit, easy to use and full of fun elements and papers. One of the other wonderful things about her kits is they are all $1.00. That's It!!! And she has some really really cute kits. You can find all of her kits at her store at http://www.scrapdebris.com/.


So, you may have noticed that I did layouts of my baby Josh tonight. Today he and I got into a HUGE fight and he left. I think he is going to come back but he is 18, independent and we have had so many issues lately that I'm not sure. I do know that we still love each other, I know that I am worried about him eventhough I know the kid he is staying with and trust him as much as I can trust another 18 year old, and I know that he and I said some things that were angry, ugly and just plain mean. While I told him to leave if he wasn't going to change his ways I wasn't really interested in him leaving but I had to let him go and not call him back to make sure he knew I was serious. Sometimes, I HATE being a mom. I know that God gave me this child on purpose, usually to remind me how much garbage I gave my parents, but the instruction book isn't specific on what do to now.

Ben came in after Josh left to check on me. I told him that it wasn't necessary and he informed me that Josh had given him specific instructions to make sure I was ok because he had been a - well let's just say he knew he had messed up. Ben wasn't sure how to deal with it all. He really doesn't like the fighting, is conflicted about Josh leaving and hates to see me cry. It was emotional.

Ok, now that I have bored you to tears, here are the quickpages. I put both pages in the same zip file and you can get them here.


  1. Thank you! Your blog post will be advertised on the DigiFree Digital Scrapbooking Freebie search engine today (look for timestamp: 07 Apr [LA 07:00pm, NY 09:00pm] - 08 Apr [UK 02:00am, OZ 12:00pm] ).

  2. Aw such cute pics of him exspecially the one about his animals and cookies!

  3. It seems like so much busy work when they're little, but when they get older, I think it gets tougher. No so much busy work, but lots of parenting emotional/spiritual/character issues. Hang in there! My oldest is only 15 (well, he'll be 16 in June) and I can see that I'm going to be praying increasingly as time goes by. Thank you for sharing!

    I like both the layouts and the quick pages! Thank you!

  4. Trac, I have "one of those kids" too.....It's so very hard sometimes.....keep doing what you are doing...stay strong.....and keep praying for them......The one that gives me the most grief is the one that is just like me....yeah, I know, Jesus has a GREAT sense of humor....ROFL!

    Hugs! And Thanks for CT'ing for me and doing some quick pages as well!
