The Contest Freebie Frenzy is ending

Click here to purchase for $2.

but not without a BANG! The NDIDDS contest over at Designs in Digital is having a blow-out 4th assignment...a Full Kit...Ok, well not free anymore, apparently for $2 now. I've been out-of-town and just found out they were charging. So sorry! We got to chose our own colors and theme, and I went with a western theme in honor of our family vacation that starts tomorrow. We're going back to my Texas roots to spend time with my grandmother and extended family, and it should prove to be interesting. Please pray for me flying with 2 toddlers across the country! This kit, Lil'Buckaroo, has some cute pages for those cute cowboy/cowgirl moments; as well as some subtle patterns that would be perfect to showcase family reunions or vacation photos. So, this week you can run over and grab the papers and next Friday you can grab the coordinating elements. There are 20 papers and 40 elements, wowza! I didn't have time for a freebie template this week, but hopefully the papers will make up for it. I hope you all have a great weekend and I'll see you next week!

SYTYCD Freebie - Week 3

Link has expired, but you can find the expanded version of this kit at any of my stores.

Well, my lovely followers, your good luck wishes came true and I made it on to week 3 of SYTYCD at DigiScrapAddicts. I feel so blessed to be playing with some of the biggest names in DigiLand. This week, we were told to pick a Beatles tune and develop a kit around it. Well, after an exhausting couple of days I narrowed it down to an obscure Ringo Starr song, Octopus's Garden. What grabbed me was his story of how he wrote the song. He was apparently eating squid on a ship in some exotic location (gotta love being a rock star) and the sea captain told him how octopus's like to go along the bottom of the ocean and collect shiny things and bring them back to their "garden". Ringo said that was the happiest thing he ever heard, and I have to agree. I was instantly inspired as I pictured my little munchkins under the sea collecting shiny things with their octopus friend and this week's kit is dedicated to their carefree childhood. I hope you enjoy using it as much as I enjoyed making it, it's my favorite kit so far that I've made.

The 1st of three freebies

Link has expired, but you can get the full kit at one of my stores.

Howdy Scrappers! This is the first of three fun freebies this weekend. As you know, I've been buried in 2 competitions, and with a very hectic Mother's Day weekend, I had even less time to prepare. But, a total God thing happened and each competition allowed us to pick our own color theme and then just use their theme. So, I used the same color scheme on both projects. I also strategically tried to make them cohesive, so you, my loyal readers, could get a giant mega kit. Wahoo! I hope you all enjoy my efforts and leave me some love....this tired girl could use some right about now. The next kit will be here soon.

This kit works perfectly with my Project 365 templates! It's my entry for DigiScrapAddicts' So You Think You Can Design contest, week 2, and it's entitled Ordinary Moments. Wish me luck...
