Final Call and a QP!

Ok, the people have spoken, well ok, like 5 of you have spoken, but the votes were decidedly for making all my kits available until the next one is released and then the previous kit will expire and will be available for purchase in my store. I will also be revamping some of my old freebies and making them available in my store. So here is your official final call. By Wednesday next week, my old kits and QP's will be expiring to make room for new kits. All ADSD collab kits will remain up for the full month. All CU freebies will continue to remain up indefinitely, as will wallpapers and tutorials. Also a big THANK YOU to those of you who actually read that post!! :)

Here is the QP being put to use. While this kit has a lot of pink in it, I wanted to show that the kit was made to be used for both a boy or a girl. So here is my adorable son singing his heart out!

CU Bow!

Ok, first let me say Thanks for all your patience with all my technical difficulties. We were using a friends private server and had problems because there were soooo many of you downloading my stuff!! So, for now, I am once again stuck with 4shared! I am planning to get a QP for the Music of my Heart Kit out to you, but things have been getting a bit crazy here. I have a few exciting announcements coming up, but that also means that I'm going to have to start changing a few things around here. My husband and I just found out that we are expecting baby number 4 and so my energy levels and brain cell levels have plummeted! I have also been offered the chance to sell my stuff in a store. As much as I would love to leave all my freebies up indefinitly, as long as I have to use 4shared that is just not possible. As is, I am about 3 kits away from totally running out of room on my 4shared account! I am still deciding how I want to solve this. I have been considering the method that is used by some wonderful designers out there like Vicki of A Work in Progress and Nicole of Digi Designs by Nicole. I am also considering just taking off the oldest stuff as I need room. Some of these older ones may get re-vamped and then show up in the store. So here is a question for you out there who actually download this stuff... (please leave responses in the chat box or in the comments)

*** What would you prefer
- A set up like Nicoles where all my kits are offered as freebies for about a week and then they go to the store


- A couple freebies a month that are ALWAYS (as long as I have room) free and a couple kits a month that go straight to the store without ever being freebies.

Haha, if you don't have any opinion or don't care, then I will randomly choose by flipping a coin...well maybe not, but you get the idea!!

Ok so now that my dilemna has been laid out for you, here is your freebie! I've got a CU bow today. If you look closely, it's the bow that was used on the frames in the Music of my Heart kit. In this file is a layered .psd file, a layered .tif file and a .png file.

Music of my Heart

Well, here it is! I've been working on this kit for awhile, and finally got it finished! I have so many pictures of my kids floating around of them at the piano, or singing and I wanted a kit that I could use for that. So here it is. This is a Valentine release because of the heart part of the theme, so I hope you enjoy it!

****** This Link has expired. Check my store!*****

Here are some LO's done by my CT and I (yup that's right, I was so excited about this kit that I had made 2 LO's with it long before the kit was even released!) Don't forget the Speed Scrap tomorrow at the DDBN forum and be sure to check back for the QP!

Template #5 - Am I even close to going in order,,,,

Ok I put this template together awhile age, but I got sidetracked by Christmas... :) What can I say, I LOVE the holidays! So anyway, I've got a template for you today, And then be sure to check back on Thursday for my latest kit! The kit will be released just in time to use for a speed scrap going on at the DDBN forum! I did my first speed scrap ever there just a little while ago and it was soo much fun. The people there are so nice! Don't worry if you have never done one before! There is even a great prize for participating! Even better, doing these has stretched me as a scrappbooker and challenged me to try new things and to get creative! Now, on to the freebie. This is in 3 sizes and inside the zip file you will find psd documents, layered tiff files and seperate pngs for those who can't use the others.
Ok so Download HERE

Once again I'm sorry for those Scrapbook Max users, I still haven't figured out how to make templates into Scrapbook Max bundles....(the instructions for this were less than clear!) However don't forget to come back for the kit on Thursday! Here is the LO I did that inspired this template. Yes that is me looking like a beached whale at 9 months pregnant!!Finally, I have recieved another award! Erika at Pinku Pixie has kindly given me the Lemonade Award which i just love! My poor husband realized after he married me that I have a slight obsession with Country Time lemonade. I love the stuff, drink it with almost every meal. I drink as much lemonade as he does water.... (I figure, hey it could be worse right!) So besides making me feel very flattered to get an award from her. Be sure to check out the awesome stuff on her blog and now of course the traditional passing it on! The "rules" of this award are that I must:-
1. Put the logo on your blog or post. (Right click on the logo and save to your own computer.)
2. Nominate at least 10 blogs which show great attitude and/or gratitude!
3. Link to your nominees within your post.
4. Let them know that they have received this award by commenting on their blog.
5. Share the love and link to this post with the person from whom you received your award.

I'm not fully sure I am going to be able to come up with 10 friends, but I will give it a try! So in no particular order.... :P

I participated in another Charity Collab! This time at Pretty Scrappy. The kit was put together by Virginia of LadyV dZines She has put together this amazing kit for only 10$. It includes some stuff from some amazing designers like Vicki of A Work in Progress, Lisa Minor, Sara of Sweet Blossom Designs, and many more! This collab is HUGE! over 1 GB worth of stuff. This preview doesn't even show half of what comes with the kit. If you want a better look check out Virginia's Blog. The proceeds for this will benefit the National Foundation for Ectodermal Dysplasias or NFED. There is so much amazing stuff in this kit and I have had so much fun playing with it, that I made a freebie QP just for you!!!

So here is the QP I made. This is a truly beautiful, hopeful kit. I just loved designing with this color pallet and so getting back to it for this QP was lots of fun too. Anyway, as usual it is in 3 shapes and png format for easy to use-ability!Download HERE

Chocolate Cherry QP

Ok, so I have a nice romantical QP for you today. Made from my part of the Chocolate Cherry Blog Train. Be sure you grab the kit too, just one post down. Hopefully in a couple of days I will have a QP for you from Vero's part. Her part is soo lovely, but I haven't got many valentine-y pictures!! Plus I've been sick for like 2 weeks now and I haven't been at the computer much (haha, yeah I have had to cut back to 5 or 6 hours a day...) However make sure you are here around Valentines Day because I have another kit for you around then.
