Free Digital Frame

It's been awhile, since I made anything for digital scrapbooking.  Today, I made a frame.  (See preview Below) I'll be using my Xyron to make magnets.  Here's one of my favorites for you to download for free.  Thanks to all my friends and family for parading your dogs in costume, zumba-ing, dancing, eating paletas & frozen yogurt, buying Christmas trees, sending your love from afar by donating online & putting cash in a stamped envelope, adopting my baby jade Sprouts, donating garage sale items, letting me do some website work and logo design - All to help me to raise $1,075 thus far for Phoenix Children's Hospital!  I've exceeded my team committment of $1,000 and now it'll be gravy on top to reach my personal goal of $1,500!  I'm still accepting donations online at my official PCH Fundraising page here > 

Chewy Mango Walnut Bars! YUM!

My friend Ginni Llorente has started up her own little bakery biz.  I imagine her right now elbow deep in flour, walnuts and mangos.   Yes, mangos!  hello, i'm a fan already and haven't even tasted her Chewy Mango Bars with walnuts yet. (So, sorry no pictures to show yet) But, I've ordered THREE bags of bars already.  Maybe I'll share some with you...maybe not.  If you are in the Phoenix area, and would like to order some of my friend's delicious baked goods. Please leave a comment here or on my facebook wall.  I'll fill you in pricing.   She's just starting out, so the pricing is mainly to cover her expenses.  The bars would make a lovely gift for sure.  I've decided not to mark up the price to fundraise for PCH.  Instead, please consider donating online directly to  Phoenix Children's Hospital at and messaging me for details, if you'd like to order some mango bars from my friend.  Gotta support your local upstart businesses!

Lastly, Phoenix Children's Hospital set up these two fundraisers & hopefully those local can participate in them.   
  • Zumba Dec 11th 2-4pm at Abby Bella Arcadia
    4280 E Indian School Rd.; Suite #108
    Phoenix, AZ 85018                                    $15 Zumba ticket for two hours and 100% of ticket sales go to PCH. that's pretty awesome. 
  • Christmas Trees  Purchase your Christmas Tree with Scottsdale Environmental and $15 will be donated to Phoenix Children's Hospital! Happy Holidays! See event for participating locations. 
More Goodness:
Now, if helping out a children's hospital isn't motivation enough, here's some goodies to dangle before you:

I still have one $25 Sprouts Farmers Market gift card to raffle away to donors.  Plus, my very talented husband, Ron Carranza of ZaZo Graphics and Animation, will be creating a custom 8x10 caricature of your loved one(s), for one lucky Donor! 

Thank goodness for social media networking, because printing & handing out fliers was a real pain, especially having to bring my 2 year old along each time! She may have gone a little bit coo-coo from it all, as you can see from her picture above.  My husband & I are breathing a simultaneous Huge SIGH of relief that the big urgency to raise enough has passed! HIGH-FIVE ya'll!  Now, I have all my energy for the holiday frenzy and training for the MARATHON!!!!  Saturday, I'm running 14-16 miles! Ridiculous!

alrighty, Enjoy the digi frame!
