Daily Download #5 and #6 and a Speed Scrap!

Hello all!

Did you ever sit down to your computer with your cup of coffee and wiggle the mouse?  And…. nothing happens.  The screen stays black.  That’s what happened to me yesterday morning.  I put it in sleep mode right before I went to bed and then it didn’t want to wake up.  Talk about minor heart palpitations!  🙂  Then came the chaos of getting my husband and boys off to camping for a couple days – talk about a chore and a half!  So when I finally got some time to think it out – I went on a google search as to why my computer wouldn’t ‘wake up’.  Luckily I found a cool video right on YouTube that showed me to unplug the RAM for a few seconds, plug it back in and all the other components too and voila!  I was so excited!  I love when I can fix things on my own!

So – now we play catch-up.  Today you can click HERE for Day #5 and on the image for Day #6:

New GingerBread Lady!! 7-6

My wonderful Shannon left me, she is on vacation, enjoying time with her family. But the fun doesn’t stop around here! We have some very exciting new today!! A New GingerBread Lady!!

Twin Mom Scraps

As always- Stalkers welcome 🙂


You can also grab and wear her blinkie too!

We have been getting to know eachother in the private designer forum at GS, and I know you are all going to just love her! She is a perfect addition to the GingerSraps family!!

Here is a little bit more about her…..

She is a 32, stay at home mom to 6 year old twin girls. Which is obviously how she got her design name.

She paper scrapped for over 10 years before she found digital scrapbooking.
She got really into digital scrapbooking after she broke her back in an auto accident in 2007.
During a painful recovery, she couldn’t do much else, but sit on the couch with her laptop. So she scrapped and scrapped!
Then she wanted to know how the amazing designers were creating such beautiful kits.
She reached out to a few designers for some tips and she was on her way. She considers herself a self-taught designer.
So she has been designing since 2008 or so and hasn’t looked back…and can’t go a day without her laptop!!!

Isn’t she so sweet?!?!

Here is a quick glance at some of the goodies you will find in her SHOP!
