Chutes and Ladders... or stairs in my case

So I am slowly recouping from slipping down the 3 stairs in my house and landing hard as heck on my tushie... almost 2 weeks ago.  Have you ever seen a butt swell up?  Let me tell ya that it aint a pretty site.  My 8 yo son said that it looked like my butt was growing a butt.  My 4 yo said that I needed to take band aids and keep putting them side by side until it was this big.... as he is holding up his hands in this giant 2 foot square!  Uhm kids... be nice to your mom's butt.  After 5 days the swelling and pain hadn't subsided so I went to the doctor.  That was a fun experience (read that as NOT)... having my butt x-rayed, having the doctor poke my butt to see if it hurt (yea, it did) and having my dear husband making me laugh at stupid jokes!  Good news was that my bum bum was not broken... but it had a contusion.  A week of muscle relaxers, pain meds and sleeping my stomach has helped but I am ready to get back up and do stuff.

So as always, I am late posting stuff.   Ah well... life ya know.  I have a mini kit freebie for you as part of the COLOR with CARYN monthly blog hop and a QP for you that you could use for Mother's Day!   So, lets get this party started.

First up, Janice of JW DigiScraps let me play with her beautiful new kit - a Mom for the Ages.  OH MY... I am in love with the colors of this kit.  I couldn't' decide on papers and she included so many elements that I wanted to put them all on my page.  JW DigiScraps is a guest designer this month at the Studio and you can grab this awesome kit of hers for only $3.  This is one kit that has multiple uses so I would snag it up if I were you.  Here is the kit preview....

and here is the layout I created using a template from Sara Ellis.  She had an awesome bag of templates on sale for NSD and this was one of them. Oh..and I love the old retro WOMEN/MOM/COFFEE signs.  I collect the images on my computer and sure wish I could buy some to put in my house!

So the QP I am giving you is the above image... minus the mom's pic!  LOL... I figured you could put a pic in and then use the squares to write good things about your mom, gramma, aunt, etc.  This QP will only be available until Mother's Day so make sure you grab it now!

freebie no longer available

Next up is my portion of the Color With Caryn Creative Team Blog Hop.... whooo hooo!  I think my mini is more of a mini this month!  And since I am still new to this, please let me know how you liked the kit and if you make a layout, link me up please!  I would love to see.

And before I give you the download links, I want to let you know about the wonderful papers I used in this mini kit from Color with Caryn.  You can find at her products in her DSW and DSV shops (and hopefully back at DRS soon).  So, if you are looking for HIGH QUALITY CU items... you can't go wrong with Caryn's.

ok... now you can have the download links!  Thanks for stopping by and reading all about my broke butt!  See ya soon with more stuff.
