Another Freebie-Part 1-Papers

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. I did dispite the fact I hurt my back as I was getting my scuba gear ready to go diving. (Yes, I was a the lake already and so was everyone else). Needless to say diving ended up being a no go for me and Sean backed out since I couldn't go even though I told him to go, I'd just lay on the blanket till the dive was over. I still managed to have a great time Saturday afternoon at my girlfriend Sarah's place. She lives right on the beach here in town and she organized a girls afternoon at her house with two teenagers my daughter Alexandra's age, a little girl from our congregation that is so enthralled with Alexandra, her mom and one other lady. We had so much fun. Sarah and Adam went to a lot of trouble planning a "Pirate Treasure Hunt". They even tea stained paper and burnt the edges to age it. The clues were so much fun and one clue led to their basement but access to it was only from outside the house. To enter you had to pull up this metal door, go down a ladder and enter this windowless, dark cement room (more like a dungeon if you asked me). But Adam had put old wood up against one wall to make it look like the inside of a ship below the waterline, and an old table and lit some candles on it... which is were the clue was hidden.

Our treasure.... plastic tiara's, candy rings, candy necklaces, chocolate money, nail polish, the girls got beach bags, we ladies were given evening bags and little Charliegh got a beach wrap. Sarah told us she went to Value Village for our evening bags, we couldn't believe it as they seemed brand new. Adam was the perfect gentleman, he BBQ'd for us and I was able to spend the afternoon sitting in a chair in the water relaxing and soaking up the sun and enjoying the company of some of the nicest ladies I know.

The three teens didn't really know each other well before our get together but they sure behaved like the best of friends by the end of the day. They suggested we have another get together soon-which was nice to hear.

So my freebie today is another set I did for last years IvyScraps Collab. The theme was "Cozy at Home" so I created some furniture and created a few papers. I hope you enjoy this kit. Below is the full preview. I have it broken down into three downloads, papers -today and tomorrow's downloads, and elements-the following day.
