Another Day in Paradise

So here I am back from vacation and trying to unpack and catch up with everything possible. todays download is a file with a few layers for today. This file no longer available for free download, but can be purchased HERE. It cuts in a few pieces. The words connected to cut in one piece and a mat. The sun, the water shape, the round cornered square background and a palm tree. Lots of ways to lay out all the pieces in a file. These files are for personal use only. Please do not share or alter and claim as your own.
And on to other things....
I had a great time in Wisconsin with my Dad, my husband and my son. When the men all went fishing I got to hang out on the patio in the very cool sun (compared to arizona) and read my book and relax. I tried hard not to check my email so I could recharge and get the creative juices flowing. I read three books in 5 days. Plane trips included, but I really enjoyed just relaxing and seeing family. I make the trek every year with my son and husband and love it. Time spent with my Dad is always wonderful and the weather although somewhat rainy was beautiful for the most part.
The voting!!! Have you cast your vote in the word book challenge. I think we are at 88 votes and I am hoping to hit the hundred mark. There are only a few more days left. So please take a second and cast your vote for one of the 4 ladies who decided to participate. This was my first challenge I have ever held and have a few ideas for others. I am pleased with the outcome of entries and hope to have future challenges also. Here is the link to go vote. So please take a moment and throw in your thoughts. password for freebie file is may.
I absolutely appreciate everyone who has purchased my files as well as downloaded freebies. It helps me to continue to offer things here for free. Thank you thank you Thank you.
Well I am glad to be back... I haven't had a chance to put the word out by hitting the groups. So if you want to post it out there, please do so. Here is the correct blog address.. http://visualdesignsbychris.blogspot.com/ For now I have to catch up on paperwork and will hope to catch up on email too. Then maybe if I get a chance today read some of the groups and the forum at Paperthreads. So off I go. See you tomorrow!

Hi Chris,
Good to hear you had such a good time. It's been madness here trying to create gifts requested by customers. Love your freebie. Missed you when you were gone. Have a great rest of the week and we look forward to more.

Welcome back Chris. Missed your blog and files. Glad you trip was so relaxing. Not sure if my last comment was published but my suggestion for a title was "Leavin' on a jet plane". I could use that myself on a couple of layouts and it seemed appropriate as you were leaving for Wisconsin.

Chris - I am a regular reader of your blog - I love your creative thinking and great files. Glad you had a wonderful vacation with family. Enjoy this time it passes all too quickly. Just wanted to let you know I missed the download of 'another day in paradise' but I will be picking it up at the 'store', However I wanted to relay the importance of that saying to our family and friends and why I love it so. Here in Florida the day's are mostly wonderful, hot, balmy lazy days. Somehow the saying - 'another day in paradise' has become our family moto. We moved from the Northeast for health reasons almost 30 years ago. The warmth and sunshine is greatly appreciated and we have flourished here. When Jimmy Buffet wrote the words of the song it described so well how Florida and it's feeling of paradise has become our way of life - So Thank You for "another day in paradise". I am going to make a Wall Pagae Hanging with the file for our new home. (Moving to be close to my new grandson arriving in June. He too will be enjoying Paradise as he will be our first generation born in Florida.
