Been on vacation...

We have been traveling for the last 7 weeks!
We are back home now and getting back into
the regular routine.  I will get some goodies
posted before the week is over (I HOPE)...
I have LOTS of great goodies from Paulette
at Create with TLC to use ... LOTS of ideas
flowing around in my mind...just need to get
them into PSP!  

Paulette's September 2012 Club is one
not to miss!  If she still allows you to get into
it, you really MUST ... The theme is back to
school, grandparents, and coffee!

The topper elements are by Paulette
the layouts by myself.

The topper says HUG and I used the
kisses in the bag to give as a


gift to the recipient.

A Bear Hug For Someone Special

Here's a little Bear Hug
His arms are open wide
And though he's small
His heart is filled
With lots of love inside
If you are ever lonely
And your heartstrings need a tug
Just find this Bear and then right there
He'll give a tiny hug.

Friendship Rainbow
I don't need a pot of gold
From every rainbows end;
For I found the greatest wealth
Is having you for my friend.
Here are some little hugs for you
Just a way that I can say
Thank you for being the color
In a world that often seems grey!

or change the last two lines to say:

Thank you for your friendship
Please have a colorful day!


Grandma Hugs
Grandmother, you are like a patchwork quilt,
so cozy and so warm.
Just listening to your stories,
reminds me of your wisdom and your charm.
I know I can always come to you,
When lost or feeling alone.
For you always comfort me,
and make me feel at home.
You are the silver lining,
of a cloudy day
and I know whom I can trust
when black clouds blow my way.
I store your hugs and kisses
In my heart each day.
So I'd like to share some back with you
To give you back love in my own special way.
Paulette, 1999


Homework Hugs ...

An Angel's jar of "Homework Hugs"
To help with the studies you'll do.
A beary sweet hug and quick studybreak,
Will lovingly see you through.

To this angelic bear *you* are
So beary special and dear!
She'll encourage with hugs and brings to you
Our wishes for a GREAT school year!
- DAB 8-30-99


Hug Me!

No moving parts, no batteries.
No monthly payments and no fees;
Inflation proof, non-taxable,
In fact, it's quite relaxable;
It can't be stolen, won't pollute,
One size fits all, do not dilute.
It uses little energy,
But yields results enormously.
Relieves your tension and your stress,
Invigorates your happiness;
Combats depression, makes you beam,
And elevates your self-esteem!
Your circulation it corrects
Without unpleasant side effects
It is, I think the perfect drug:
May I prescribe, my friend, the hug!

Why God Made Hugs

Everyone was meant to share
God's all-abiding love and care.
He saw that we would need to know
a way to let these feelings show.

So God made hugs - a special sign,
and symbol of His love divine,
a circle of our open arms
to hold in love and keep out harm.

One simple hug can do its part
to warm and cheer another's heart.
A hug's a bit of heaven above
that signifies His perfect love.

PREVIEW of last three printables

It is not a good picture at all...  but I wanted to show
you that they print and assemble very easily.
I'm sorry the picture is grainy.  I don't have my good
camera here so this is the best I can do...

Free Coffee Theme Topper Printable

Create with TLC has some wonderful wordart.  I am so excited to see so many perfect for what I call the "FOOD THEME".  I am always making recipe cards, scrapbook layouts using recipes, or toppers, greeting cards, etc that the "FOOD THEME" is appropriate for.  This particular wordart for COFFEE is WONDERFUL!  I just had to play with it!  When i first saw it, I thought about those hotel packages that I have seen several times now this summer since we have been traveling.  
In the baggie I envision including either instant coffee packets with creamer and sugar packets, a napkin and a plastic spoon...similar to what is in a hotel room.  OR at least ONE if not two chocolate covered spoons to make MOCHA COFFEE.  Another idea is to include one of those "gourmet single pot" packages that are available at Christmas or sometimes in the regular coffee aisle even and a couple ghiraldi chocolate squares and a biscotti cookie or two. 
 Really it is whatever each persons taste would call for.
This is a 300dpi image so it appears large in the download, but it will print well on the page.  I can get two to a single page if you turn it sideways.


Free Printables

I used elements from Paulette's AUGUST 2012 CLUB
as well as the current TASTE OF CLUB ~ CLUB
to create both of these Chocolate Bar Wrappers.
The one template is one from Paulette and the other
is my own.  They both fit the 1.55 oz regular bar.  

Be sure to get over to the new STORE to see how
to find ALL of Paulette's creations as well as
her BLOG to see her daily posts and freebies!

She is also taking SIGN UPS for the next club...  
Don't miss out!!!!  They are phenomenal!!!!!

Just be sure to click them into a new tab/window to get them
at full size and save them to your own computer to be used
when you want.

Please stop over at CREATE WITH TLC and share some
love with Paulette for her continued creating and sharing!
