Hello Newsletter Subscribers,

Well, I hope that you are not wobbling around like I am this morning.  I ate way too much this past Thursday.  I cannot believe that Thanksgiving has come and gone for 2011!  I feel as though I have lost a month or two this year…where has the time gone?!  Cliff and I had a quiet Thanksgiving this year away from family.  It was hard, but it happens that way sometimes.  I hope that all of you got to spend time with your family and friends this year…and that you have lots of pictures to scrap book!  That is the fun afterwards…reliving those moments through our hobby.  I made all of those Thanksgiving files and will not even use them this year because who takes pictures of just the two of us?….LOL!  But Christmas will be different.  We will be surrounded by family and we are looking forward to it!

Enjoy the files!  I hope that you will find something that you can use this time.

The files were miscellaneous this week.    If your interests are not being represented, then write to me at and voice your opinion.


My Prayer Life:  Nothing new this week.

If  you have prayer requests, please send them to this address: 

In the subject area, type PRAYER REQUEST.  Do not send last names.  Only first names and brief descriptions of the situation.  God knows what is going on! :-)  I will add them to my prayer list!  I also ask that if the prayer is answered that you let me know so that we can give Him Praise!

ORDERS for WPC , PDF, SVG, and MTC files:  This feature is for those of you who need a special file.  I charge for these kinds of files.  The price would be determined by the complexity of the file. 

Also, from here on in, I am listing all free files as pdf and wpc.  If you want an svg or mtc, let me know....but I will be charging $1/file.  Most programs accept pdfs.  If I list all file formats on my website, it takes way too long and takes away from the quantity and quality of the designs that I want to post in the future.  This will encourage you to learn how to import pdf if you don't already know how.  One person said that she didn't know how to use pdf for svg.....well....I made a tutorial on how to do this and it is listed on the site under VIDEOS.

Videos:  Believe it or not, I am still working on the timing issue.  The voice gets away from the video.  Once I can get it together, I will start making more tutorials to post.

I would like to see some of your work that you have made using the files listed in the IzzaBoutChu! Site.  Please share!

Please send ALL correspondence to the  email address.  My Opal777 email address is a personal one.  I have an elderly mother who ails from time to time...and I need that one kept open for personal communication.  Thank you for understanding in advance.  :-)

HAPPY SCRAPPING!!  See you next week!
