New freebie and another kit finished ;)

Damn ,I'm good in the moment !.....I managed to get the Halloween kit wrapped up as well. I have to admit I cheated a bit though. I added some elements (sign posts) which I used to have for sale as Commercial use pack in "the old days". But they were fitting so perfectly with these new designs that they had to go in !
Edna is asking "I wonder, are your appliances (like a laptop) any different in the UK than they are here? If not, yes you can probably find a good bargain when you come back this winter."
Yes, Edna-they are different. We have 220 volts over here and a different plug. But that can easily be solved with an adaptor for a laptop.I already have one which I use on this laptop when I go across, with any luck it might even fit a new one , if not I have some adaptable parts to change this one, and it has a switch to change the voltage as well.
I had a good day today , despite coming of nights and not having much sleep. I was lucky to find some bargains again. You remember the 12x12  paper scrap page I did a while ago? I picked up a fitting frame for only about $5.00 today. This will go upstairs in my room on the wall .
While doing shopping and paying bills I got tired without any sleep, so I thought I will get myself an energy boost drink. I decided to try one of Reggie's favourites.... yuck...brrrrrrrrrr.... the stuff worked but I will never ever be a Mountain Dew fan ! I don't know how he can drink so much of the stuff,lol.
Lucky finds at ASDA though.... they now do Franks Hot Sauce and Marshmallow fluff. And I found Malt beer. Nothing with alcohol... but I grew up in Germany with that drink and have not had any for I'm doing the "Happy Dance".
Plus I was armed with my hot glue gun and finally finished to decorate the candle jars.
Bargain pair of boots ordered for this winter for only $30.00 .... my budget is smiling at me. Finding these kind of bargains means I can afford to treat myself :)
Design work- another teaser qp and the preview ...very happy with how it turned out.And no orange or lime green in it,lol.
I have decided to give you the Summer BBQ kit next.
Here are previews and the first two parts (6 all together , with 2 coming each week to collect) This week part 1 and 4 , so you have some backgrounds and elements already.
Enjoy :)
Hugs Snowy

I too can feel very "satisfied"when I find a good bargain LOL.
With a bit short of money nowadays, well, we have to be careful, better said, I have to look for real bargains. Already found a few things for Christmas presents ROFL.
Like what you did with the Halloween kit, and yeahm it's different from the "usual colors".
I just started an autumn kit, but it wnet so well, I will be able to upload it this weekend I guess.
Enjoy the weekend as much as you can, we are going to have a heatwave here, they said.

oh I'm so pleased it went so well with Reggie, I was thinking about you but have been so bad with my 'ADHD without the h' lately, I just want to sleep all the time!!! Today I had a few spare minutes to catch up on your blog, I will keep my fingers crossed for you both and wish you all the luck in the world. Cassandra x
