Thank you for stopping by my blog. Lately I have been reviewing books and haven't had as much time to scrap. Hopefully soon I'll get back to scrapping and creating some new files. Thank you for your patience.

I have made files available at absolutely no charge. I do this for fun. I am learning the wonderful Make The Cut (MTC) program and trying to improve my skills. Most of the files have been created from free coloring sheets online. You will need MTC software in order to cut these files. Please use these files for your personal use only and if you want to share them with others please direct others to my blog. I hope you enjoy these files. Comments are always appreciated. If you are not a follower please consider doing so. I have lots of new files that I want to add over the next few months.

Watch for the Light

As much as I wanted to love this book I just didn't.  It had some good points and some good devotionals but I guess my expectations were a little different than what the book offered. The Christmas season is a busy season for me and I really wanted to be able to sit down and do a daily devotion to keep in mind what the season is really for. I found many of the passages too long, not that that is a bad thing but not what I needed at the time. I was looking for something I could get through quickly and reflect upon it. I wasn't looking for another project that was going to be time consuming. Some passages I had to skim through and to be quiet honest I ended up skipping some due to the lack of time. This devotional wouldn't be bad if you have the time to sit and really ponder upon what is being said. Maybe now that things have settled down I will revisit and even though it is designed for advent I can still glean from it.
I received this book from handlebar publishing at no charge in exchange for an honest review.

The Bracelet

I couldn’t put The Bracelet by Dorothy Love down. Set in Savannah just before the Civil War in 1858 the author did an awesome job describing the setting and pulling you in with her secrets and mystery. The Browning family is a prominent family that finds themselves shrouded in family secrets and lies. Celia Browning is in love with Sutton Mackay and has been since they were children. The secrets threaten their relationship and the Browning family’s social standing. Celia receives threats and a bracelet that represents a deadly message.
The author did such a wonderful job introducing her characters. I could imagine the homes, the sounds and the smells of the time. I could see the imagery that she portrayed. All of it served to keep me interested. I would find myself staying up way too late reading. She throws in crime, mystery, history, romance and scandal. This book is well rounded and could appeal to a number of readers who enjoy such.
I would recommend this book to others. I received this book at no charge from in exchange for an honest review.

A November Bride

November Bride by Beth Vogt was one of my favorites. This is the final installment of the series and it was a complete joy to read. Sadie McAllister is a personal chef for a family who wants a chance at a TV series but when she bombs at her first attempt she isn’t sure what is in store for her. And on top of it all she is dumped by her boyfriend via text message. Her friend Erik Davis has commitment issues with his relationships. He and Sadie are friends since childhood. When he suggests they go on a date Sadie reluctantly agrees. They have some baggage from the past but is there more on the horizon for them?
I loved the characters and it was fun getting to know them. I could imagine their lives together as childhood friends and the struggle they had to remain friends throughout the years when there are underlying feelings that both are afraid to express. I wasn’t left feeling the novella was rushed and it felt complete. I always wish good books would go on a little longer but this was a perfect little evening read.
This was a wonderful ending to the series again if you love these types of novellas don’t miss this one. I was given this book at no charge from in exchange for an honest review.
