LO's using New Beginning Charity Kit for Casey

I did a couple of LO's using the beautiful New Beginning Charity Kit from Pretty Scrappy. I used templates from Yin for the 2 page spread. I hope this will help you see how versitile the kit is and that you can use it for almost anything. Enjoy!

The LO's were of my eldest son's first field trip to the Belmont Pumpkin Patch with the other Kindergarten classes.

Have a blessed day!

Charity Collaboration and Freebie QP

The Designers at Pretty Scrappy as well as a few friends of the shop have put together this awesomely beautiful kit to help raise funds for the owner and a designer of Pretty Scrappy... Casey. She, her husband and 2 young children (both under 4) were forced to leave when Hurricane Ike hit Galveston, TX. When they were allowed back in (at first they were told it was a total loss), they were forced to live in the 2 upstairs rooms until they were told whether or not they could stay in the house permantely. Thankfully they can remain in their home but have a lot of damage that needs to be fixed. They lost everything they owned except the girls room. Please take the time to go over and pick up this kit ... all the proceeds WILL go directly to Casey and her family. In addition to the kit, there are 2 different album QP's , a bracket and brag book, and an add-on. There was so much designed for this kit that it had to be cut down. I have made you a free 12x12 QP with some of the items in the kit and some of my items that had to be eliminated for size. I hope you enjoy the freebie and go get the rest of the kit!

Thanks for taking the time to check out my post and at least going and looking at what you can get in the collaboration.
God Bless

New Kit and LO's to show off some of my newest kits

Good afternoon everyone...

I hope you had a great weekend... and I am so glad that so many of you liked my newest sampler freebie. Thanks for all the love. I just wanted to show you some of the LO's I have done with some of the new kits coming out here shortly and one that I just put in the shop last week. First is a LO(template by FreeDigitalTemplates by Lori) featuring my newest kit that will be released this week sometime called "Roundabout Florals". It features a lot of circles and paper florals in the shades of blue, red, pink, orange, green and brown. A very verstile kit for any gender and any scapping need.

Next, it a LO I did using my kit I just placed in the store last week "Baby Hoo". I know it has the word baby in it but it can be used for so much more. Its preview is in the post just below as it features owls and elephants in shades of brown, pink, orange, turquoise, grey and yellow. The sampler freebie for it is still listed in the post below so don't forget to get it before it expires.

Finally this last LO comes from the Pretty Scrappy Collaboration "Sunset Collab" that will be coming to pretty scrappy very shortly. The LO in fact will be available as a QP in the QP album kit that will also be available when the kit comes out as a bonus when you purchase other items in the store. Along with both of those, we will be holding a BB train offering you freebies from the designers and even the QPT and CT teams. Keep your eyes out because the kit is so awsome!

One last note before I get going.... on Weds be looking out for a Cast Party from SAS. Those of us that competed in the designer contest are holding a cast party to celebrate the winners and all of you who supported us. There will be a whole lot of freebies so please make sure you swing by the blog for your access to our very special party!

One last thing... almost forgot.... I have had one of the wonderful CT's from Pretty Scrappy do some LO's using my kit "Hope in Sight" and she is offering free QP's for those who visit her blog. You can get there from here.... and below are her LO's she did with my kit.

Take care and have a blessed day

Welcome to the Weekend...and a Freebie

Good afternoon....

I have finished and other new kit and placed it in the store. It is called "Baby Hoo" and is a mixed of brown, orange, yellow, pink(red), turquiose and grey. I got the idea from a new baby clothing line from They had the cutest owls and elephants... I just had to figure a way to transform them into a nice kit. Below is the preview of the kit and the sampler (which will be free here for a short time but will be free for a while longer in the shop).

I also wanted to let you all know about our Thrifty Thursday (which is starting today in the shop) that you can get items from the designers at a huge discount. Our weekly newsletter starts today as well... so go sign up for it. And finally we have a spot in the shop for a $1 bin so you dont have to spend a lot to get a lot. One last reminder... the 35% store wide is still going on as well as my additional 25% off coupon (DBAGRAND).

I have switched from 4shared to mediafire in hopes that you all do not have to wait as long to download the freebies (espeically when we have a train rolling down the tracks).
