Angry Birds "Schools Out" Party & Freebie

Buzybee Digital Designs

Hi, everyone. I hope you are having a great summer. I know we are. I've been wanting to post this for some time now. I am happy to announce that I have a freebie for you today but first let me explain. Collin, my 10 year old son wanted to have a "school's out" party this year. He requested an angry birds theme. So I searched the net and made ours. Our inspiration was an invitation made by Sarah Hope Designs. If you are not crafty and can't make your own, you may purchase her bookmark invitation here  

We had cupcakes, pig in a blanket, carrot sticks, apple slices, gummy worms inside the egg carton. Inside the decorative cups in middle of table are shredded red paper and filled with boiled egg on top. Favor cups to the far left are filled with stickers, superball, eraser, and candy.  

                          FOOD & GOODIES

                       Did someone say cupcakes? 

More Yuminess! Cupcakes & Pig in a Blanket  

How could an Angry Bird Party be complete without Pig in a Blanket?

Egg carton made a good candy dish for the gummy worms. I added a few boiled eggs for decoration.  

Favor Cups 

Made by taking various shapes and googly eyes and gluing them to a 12 oz paper cup from Dollar Tree ( 2 black rectangles, 2 googly eyes, 2 orange triangles, and 1 white semi circle) The wrap in clear cellaphane and tie. Then filled with red shredded grass and add stickers, erasers, superballs, and candy. Instructions can be found here  

Table Decorations 

Decorative paper cups filed with red shredded paper and added a boiled egg on top.  

Activities & Games 

BOWLING! We bowled down the pigs. I used KFC buckets for Pigs and wrapped green construction paper around them and put faces on them. You could use coffee cans and spray pain green. 

Schools out. What a happy face! Dad setting up the pigs So the kids can bowl them over and save the Birds eggs!

Afterwards we had a water balloon fight. Whew! 

Now, are you ready for your freebie? It's a bookmark invitation/announcement in psd and png formats. 

This can be used for any invitation, announcement or party. I can see it used in a graduation announcement, senior pictures, birth announcement, engagement announcement, Birthday, etc. the possibilities are endless. I would love to see how you use this bookmark invitation/announcement. If you would like, leave me a link to your work. I would love to see it. Till next time.

Happy Scrappin!

New 2010 Calendar Templates & A Freebie

Hello everyone! I know that it has been a long time since my last post. I have taken a little break from designing this summer and now I'm back in the swing of things. We had a great summer. We spent most of our time camping this summer on the weekends. Alot has happened since my last post. My oldest son Caleb age 20 has left the nest and decided to spread his wings. So far he has done a great job. I hope he continues to grow as a fine young man. My youngest Collin started second grade. Needless to say he has a wonderful teacher Mrs. Wells. We are so grateful and blessed to have her this year. I am continuing on my weightloss journey so far I've lost 26lbs this year. I'm hoping to make that 30lbs by the end of the year.

As a freebie, I found a tooth I had done using the embroidered action from atomic cupcake. I left it blank to make it more versitile. You can use it for Babies first tooth or lost tooth etc. This embroidered patch is for personal use only. I hope you enjoy!!! Download

A Vacation, A New Year & A New Look

Well, It has been a busy fall in 2008 for me with work (our busiest season"Flu"season) and planning a trip and taking a trip. It was exhausting. Then In December Right before my vacation My lupus started to flare up I got migraines daily and had vasculitis in my little toe :( I didnt know if I was going to get to go on the cruise. The Doctor wanted to put me in the hospital and I reminded hummmhumm! Im goin on vacation wether I stay in my room the whole time. So he offered me a shot of Kenalog in the hip (Steroid). Boy! Did it work.Three days later no head aches no vasculitis. Out vacation was awesome. We Flew from St.Louis MO to Tampa FLorida December 13 and stayed over night in Tampa. Temperatures in Tampa were cool around 50 degrees. Then we sailed out on the 14th-21. The first full Day we were at Sea all Day We just relaxed and watched the kids Swim and we ate and ate and ate Till night fall. We took Collin to Camp Carnival then Hubby and I hit the Dance floor. Tried out a little of our Ballroom Dance lessons. Boy did they pay off. What a blast. We went dancing every night. Its pretty bad when we get to our room at two am and out 19 year old had already beat us there. One night he told us we were grounded. he's "too funy".
Tuesday, Our 1st port of call was Grand Cayman Island. This island is on a beautiful coral reef and we had to take a tender (boat taxi) to the pier. The temperature here was around 80 degrees or so. There were shops there and we met our ride. We Swam with stingrays and snorkeled at Coral Gardens. It was awesome. I knew it was worth every penny when I heard my 7 year old son squeal through his snorkel. It scared me a moment. I looked in the water myself. Then I heard him mummer in his snorkel "It's Beautiful" as we snorkeled over the coral reef.

Wednesday, Our 2nd Port of call was Cozumel, Mexico. The tempaerature was around 80-85 degrees. The sun was so bright the kids decided they need sun glasses so we found a little shop and they both bought some sun glasses. We grabbed a taxi and went to Chankanaab. The boys swam with Dolphins and Collin and I went Snorkeling again. That boy is a little fish. A young man offered to take us out as far as we wanted with a bouy and some fish food. He also took my underwater digital camera and took some awesome underwater shots of Collin and I from underneath us. We fed the fish and they went crazy. They were rubbing up against us and we were trying to catch them. LOL. They were way to fast. Toward late afternoon the water started to get rougher and Collin swan ahead of me and swam in a rea that was roped off I tried to get to him but a wave got him first and took himinto some coral and he got cut and scraped along his side. The lifeguard was there waiting and helped him out before the next wave came in. He still didnt let that stop him.

Thursday, When we woke up be took a tender to Belize. The Temperature was around 85 degrees. This city is a very interesting City with a zoo and very self sufficient. We had good weather the whole trip. Our guide for the day was Griffin. He took us all over the city, country and rainforest in his Van. We fed Black Holler Monkeys, saw the oldest Church in Central Americal, the Belize River and learned many interesting facts about their gorgeous central american country.

Friday, When we woke up I drew back the curtains and stepped out on the balcony and O saw the most beautiful lush moutainous island that I have ever seen. I knew We were In Roatan Island Honduras. The Temperature was around 90 degrees and comfortable. No humidity. This Island was the most beautiful of them all. We grabbed a taxi and took an island tour. We ended up on the other side at a private place to go snorkeling. we saw banana plantations, cocoa trees and crabs would sneak out of the rocks and bask in the sun. I tried to get good pictures but they were scraed of the camera. LOL. We bought beautiful handcrafted touquoise, jade, tiger eye, onyx, jasper jewelry for $5-10 US dollars. What a deal!
Saturday, we sailed all day and on Sunday we woke up and we were at port in Tampa. We immediately took a taxi to the airport. Little did we know. Our flight was delayed due to bad weather in Chicago. We also found out we were going home to the coldest temperatures so far this year 0 degrees:( We didnt care we just wanted to get home and get some rest. Im grateful it turn out to be the best vacation we've ever had.

On to other news . . . You will notice that this mommas got a brand new look. Coming this month my packaging for all my kits will have a new look. I will be selling a few in the store coming sometime in February. I am also going to be remodeling my blog. As the month goes on you will noticed that items will be rearranged and new things will be added to make this blog easier and more assessible for you. I also have added a poll of some ideas for some kits. Please go ahead and place your vote for your favorite and if you would like to see something different leave me a shout or leave your idea in the comment section of this post. I am very interested in your thoughts. I look forward to creating for you scrapping and designing needs. I hope everyone has the best 2009.

Tip of the Day

Hi everyone! It good to be back. I have been very busy this summer. This year we have decided to purchased a seasonal spot at a local campground due to the high cost of gas. We have a 30 ft travel trailer and if we went very far we would be paying a fortune in gas. So far we have been camping almost every weekend. So That doesnt leave much design time. But Im working on some new commercial use designer tools.

So much has happened. I lost my external hard drive two weeks ago:(My computer would recognize it. I sent it for data retrieval and they were unable to retrieve the data. This was heart breaking considering it was my back up drive. I lost my design tools, and my psd designs. So from now on Im burning everything to DVDs. To top everything off Last Friday night I got a Virus. My computer has Kapersky antivirus and firewall on it. This virus mimics Micrsoft XP. Infact it is called Antivirus XP 2008. It has a little red icon like the wondows update icon on the taskbar. if you click it it will install and pop ups will start coming up despite having a pop up blocker, it also would only let me use my computer 10 minutes before a blank screen would turn up. So if you have a RED windows update shield on your task bar dont click it. I worked on my system four days till midnight each day cleaning the system up. I hope this doesnt happen to anyone else. Keep you antivirus updated. Mine was updated and I still got it. so There are no guarantees with this one. Also back up back up back up your purchases and your pictures and your files regularly. If you so not have a DVD then get an online service. Thats my tip for the day.

Oh yeah, Come back tommorrow for a freebie. Your gonna love it!

I Reuploaded the Freebie!

Well all is well in the Lewis Household again. My oldest son Caleb has come home from the hospital and is doing well. Boy, is it good to be home. When I was at the hospital I used their internet to upload this trifold card and well they had 4shared blocked so I couldnt upload to there so I uploaded to You send it, which has limited 100 downloads. This card exceeded that download and I have had multiple request for this card privately so Im uploading to 4shared as promised. Thank you everyone on the kind comments on Caleb's graduation card. Im mailing them out tommorrow.

Our 20th Anniversary & A Sneak Peak

Today, is our 20th Wedding Anniversary. I never dreamed in a million years that I would be here at the hospital with Caleb on my 20th but kids come first. Todd fully agrees. I guess we will have to celebratesome other time. Oh well, we have good news this morning. Calebs creatinine levels are dropping and he may be able to go home tomorrow. His Ammonia levels are dropping also. They gave him some medicine to bring them down. So I may be able to get to go home tommorrow.

I noticed that I have already reached my download limit with You Send it. The hospital wireless internet has sites with downloads blocked here. So I cannot get any freebies downloaded on 4 shared and I cannot upload my freebies. My hands are tied till I get home. I will reupload to 4 shared and insert a download link So if you missed the download you will be able to download by the weekend.

Also I have new kit in pastel colors called New Beginnings. Here is a sneal peak.

Moo Two Designs

Hello all. I am posting this from a hospital room. My oldest son, 18 year old Caleb was admitted to our local hospital on April 4 for a skin infection on his finger. They were treating him for possible MRSA. Well on April 8 He began to complain of lower abdominal pain, nausea and vomiting. He couldnt hold anything down and they started to give him fluids by Thursday evening he was very very sick and was not holding anything down. His creatinine level came back 7.0 They told us he was in severe renal failure. He was flown by helicopter to a bigger hospital on Friday April 11 and here we still are. His creatinine has come down to 3.4 (still) renal failure but much improvement. The also told us that his ammonia level is over 50 (way too high) He is somewhat confused at times and very sleepy. They said after he receives treatment and brings the ammonia level down he should improve.

With much thought and tears I have made a decision based on my circumstances at this time and I have way to much on my plate right now I have decided to pull my items to the store. I just cannot manage a full time job,twostores and family right now. Why Moo Two Designs? Well they have the biggest committment and I just am unable to meet that with all that is going on. When things calm down and Caleb get better I may return. I will still be hanging out in the forums and rooting everyone on. Moo Two will always have a special place in my heart and the family there is incredible. I wish everyone the best.
I will also still be selling my designs in the store at K-Joi Studios at this time. I should have a freebie in the next day or so so stop back by soon. Hugs to all.~ Buzybee
