The climb

If you aren't familiar with the song "The Climb" by Miley Cyrus I strongly recommend that you listen to it. I absolutely love the song and I think in a way it almost sums up my life in some ways. I wanted to post a you tube video of the song but I'm afraid that I just can not figure out how to do it. So if anyone wants to take pity on a poor middle aged scrappy blogger and give me a clue I would be forever in your

Now, if you'll pardon me while I softly hum the song, I'll continue with the rest of today's post. I actually have another freebie for you. This is a quick layout I put together. I just threw the picture in since it was the first fall looking picture I could find.

I started with the embossed papers that I made a while back. You can find those at this post
Then I made the wreath and the happy harvest wood sign. I added a bow that was an extraction from a picture I took. I also made the tape frame. I saw something like that somewhere else and liked the way it looked. Any way, I put it all together and made a quick page for you. I also threw in the wreath, a happy harvest sign as well as a blank one and the tape frame. If you want the papers and haven't gotten them you can go to the link above. If you like this little freebie you can get it right HERE
One thing I want to mention before I go. I know there are some of you who don't do scrapbooking and so you may think that you wouldn't have any use for these freebies. They may be more useful than you think. Any of the elements can be used just like you would use any clip art you may have. Have you ever made a greeting card on your computer? Well you can use digital scrapbooking stuff to make your cards with. Really anything that you do with other clip art you can also do with this stuff. Just some food for thought.
Well it's off to do some dropping before I call it a night. Have a good one everyone.


  1. Hi Ann!

    Click on 'embed' (right side), copy and paste.

    The video should load :)

  2. My niece loves this song, she sings it ALL the time! :)

  3. i haven't heard the song and i don't know how to add it to your post, lots of good i am...hehehe. i do know that your kit is awesome and, even though i don't download much, i appreciate all of the freebies that you offer here! have a great night my friend...hugz!

  4. Thank you! Your blog post will be advertised on the DigiFree Digital Scrapbooking Freebie search engine today (look for timestamp: 07 Oct [LA 07:00pm, NY 09:00pm] - 08 Oct [UK 02:00am, OZ 12:00pm] ).

  5. I might be mistaken but I think that Blogger has a method of doing this. Try the box next to uploading photos.

    As usual Ann you are keeping us all on our toes!

  6. I don't think I've heard that song but I'll try to find it to listen to it. Another lovely freebie today!

  7. Ann, I too wonder if anyone knows how to use digi-scrap elements ... your suggestion to treat it like clip-art was brilliant ... I never thought to say it that way! :) That reaches a much broader group!

    Like Nessa said about posting a YouTube video - Click on 'embed' (right side), copy and paste.

    If I can help, just holler :)

  8. P.S. - what's your email addy? I wanted to contact you several times and can't find anything - mine is on my blog

  9. I love this song..I am a big country fan...but sorry no idea how to do the you tube thing :-(

  10. uh, me again - I made a screenshot w/directions here;

  11. I'm going to look for it on YouTube right now.

    @Nessa gave you the same answer I would have.

  12. Thank you so much for this Freebie. I want to let you know that I posted a link to your blog in CBH Digital Scrapbooking Freebies, under the Page 3 post on Oct. 08, 2009. Thanks again.

  13. Good to know about the freebies Ann, just in case I ever decide to make some cards.

  14. Hi Ann,

    The embed command won't work in a post on a Blogger.

    Choose the html that is provided with the video. Now at the back of your page where editing your post type this: center b Paste your html code for the video right in between like this!! /b /center

    Each b and each word should have < symbol before it and this symbol after it >

    Sorry it wouldn't let me post with the code actually written. So I hope this makes sense!

    If you don't want it centered then don;t add the center command!! your freebie today!! It's awesome.

    Wow my first Photoshop lesson this week is a doozie!! Wish me luck!!
    Happy day!

  15. Opppppssss... it should be like this < /> before and after the b and center!

  16. I don't think I am allowed to listen to Miley Cyrus. But I am allowed to make things out of scrap!

  17. I love Miley Cyrus. And Vickie and Nessa already told you how to do the Utube thing. I just learned myself a short time ago.

  18. Nessa, thanks for the info, so appreciate it

    PJ, just stopping by and leaving me love is good enough. :)

    Klogger, hehe I try

    Beadedtail, thanks and i hope you get to listen to the song

    Bboysmom. yep and it's been stuck in my head all day

    Vickie, thank you thank you thank you, you're the best

    TanyaWalton, I'm a closet country fan, DH hates country with a passion so I only get to listen when he's not

    Theresa, ya never know when they may come in handy

    Jackie, thanks, I hope I can get that all straight. I feel so brain dead some times when it comes to blogging. You're the best too. :)

    Acadia, well glad you can make things out of scrap, that's always fun :)

    Grampy, I haven't listened to any of her other songs but if they are like this one I'll be a fan. As for the blogging thing I have sooooo much to learn.

  19. I love this song too, and did you figure out the youtube thing yet?? If not, let me know and I will be happy to help you....I post a video every Monday for Music Monday, so I do it all the time!!!

    IcyBC thank you very much

    January glad to see you back, hope you had a good time.

    Donna not yet but working on it with the help of Jackie. You have a great weekend too.

  25. Great song Ann! And nice graphic design layout too. Have a great weekend to you :)

  26. Hi Ann,
    I'll try to help. Whenever you visit YouTube there's a box on the right of your screen. This box contains a URL link and an embed link.

    Copy the embed link. Then create a new post in blogger. Instead of using the "compose" option to type your post click on the "edit HTML".

    Then paste the code in your text box (the place you usually type your post). The height and width should be changed (your blog's post section is smaller than the normal size for videos)...width 300 height 200 should get it.

    Make sure you change these measurements whereever you see them in the code.

    Then publish your video!


Thoughts, opinions, constructive criticism, it's all good to me.
I will delete all spam comments however, so don't even bother trying!
