Daily Download Day#24

Good Morning!  Can I tell you about my favorite thing to wake up to?  I woke up (with my 7 year old’s knee in my back), climbed out of bed and turned on my computer.  I check my email and I found happy news.  That is so rare for me.  This email made me smile and gosh, I’m still smiling.

Let’s see what else I can tell you about today.  Today I will driving all over town going from one school to the next to watch my kids in their “feast”.  We made a banana bread for one (oh it looks good!) and bought pepperoni for the other (I’m all for easy).  Tomorrow we go to my mom’s house where she will be doing all the cooking.  The best part about going to my mom’s?  She makes so much food for the sole purpose of sending us all home with leftovers.  We even get a full pie to bring home.  Now that is a great mom!

What are you doing tomorrow?  Are you cooking?  Are you going to someone else’s house?  Are you going to a restaurant and let someone else do everything while you sit back and relax?  Now that would be great.  Whatever you do, make sure you come back here.  Why?  Well, not only for the daily download link, but to show how Thankful we are for each and every one of you, I will be showing you all the FULL KIT!  I know big right?

Well until then, here is your link for today.

Can I blame Thanksgiving on my lack of timing?   I’ve been so busy with getting things ready and I’m not even hosting!  UGH!  Here is today’s link.  You waited long enough…lol

Challenge Spotlight – Paper to Digi Scraplift

Is anyone else experiencing a winter wonderland already? It’s been snowing like crazy here. Someone had to come pick up my hubby for work today because his work van wouldn’t make it through the snow! It’s suppose to continue through Wednesday too. Crazy! I guess someone was dreaming of a white Thanksgiving!  Well if you aren’t out building snowmen perhaps you have time for scrapping!

Our winner from last weeks Challenge Spotlight is photom with her Family LO! Here’s what she won!


This week I’d like to spotlight Aim’s Paper to Digi Scrpalift Challenge This is one of my favorite challenges and Amy always picks fantastic layouts to lift. Don’t know how this works? Well she posts a LO that was paper made and scanned in. Then YOU make a similar page but with your pictures and kits and any changes you’d like! Enough with the chatter? Bring on the Layouts? Well okay then.

Here’s the layout to be lifted

How do you feel about sales?  Stupid question I know.  Well, we have some great stuff going on!!

First up – I’m so sorry to tell you – Becky Young is retiring.  We will miss her very much.  The good news?  She is having a sale!

Second – Thanksgiving is next week here in the United States.  What does that mean for you – besides lots of yummy leftovers?  BLACK FRIDAY!

Last and certainly not least, and maybe the most important — the holidays are coming up and that means gifts.  They (I’m not sure who they are, but they are popular, that I know) say that it is better to give then to receive.  We here at Ginger Scraps agree with that, but we would like to help you — you can receive too!  So how about we give you 10% off your order at Persnickety Prints?  The catch?  There isn’t one.

I told you we had some great sales going on!  Now here is your daily download link.
