It's a happy day... freebies for you

{lots of photos here!}

::life::
Ahh, to be happily occupied with life. I must say it's been a great summer. Amanda passed two levels of swimming - a huge accomplishment for a child that used to be terrified of the water. That's my sweet Panda; slow-to-warm is her modus operandi. Abigail is so chatty these days. Her little words might not be so clear, but they are like beautiful music to my ears. When you ask her, "How are you doing?" she replies, "Guck." Her way of saying "good". So extremely precious. Abby will drag books to me all day long, so between both my girls' insatiable appetite for books, I'm one mom with hardly a voice left by day's end.

I'm long overdue in sharing these-

This is actually me, jumping in the air.

Hey, thanks for the freebie!

I was wondering how you made the rolodex cards? I'm trying to make some using a kit from Kristie's. Right now I'm using your rolodex template on top of what I want as the background and am erasing all around it until it's the same shape as your template. It's super tedious. Is there a simpler way?

Also, I'm not sure if you know this answer but I'd thought I'd ask anyway (if you don't know, that's FINE). I want to add the rolodex cards to my blog (alliebrownslayouts.blogspot.com) as titles to all my sidebar elements. But the problem I notice is that when I save it with a transparent background on a PNG file that the background of the image (where it should be transparent) becomes a pale blue, looking tacky. Do you know how to make the background of the image transparent so that it shows up on my blog that way?

Sorry for the million questions!

Happy Birthday.

I figured out the way to not have to use the stinkin' eraser! So nevermind on that question.
