A few Project 365 Shares


I am devoted to Project 365 this year and while looking over my blog I noticed I hadn't shared any in quite a while so here I go catching up. The first one is a Dede Smith Project 365 template with Amanda Thorderson's Americana kit. Both are available at Digitals.


















The second set of pages are from Dede's kit along with Morignals.com template.




















The third and final share for the day uses Christine Smith's Grandpa's Pocket Kit, also from Digitals, and a Morginal.com template.

CT Layouts with Lifesong Kreations kits

Over the past couple of weeks I've been struggling with my scrapping mojo. I had a project in mind that I wanted to do - a tribute book for my mom who is battling cancer - but no ideas would come. I would start a page and tear it up as nothing seems to do justice to the most important lady in my life. My mom is my best friend, my confidant, my hero, my inspiration,...the list goes on and on. When I was given Karla to work with this month and I went to her store I knew it was fate. There staring at me were two kits, Holding onto Hope and Mom's Beauty - what two kits could be more fitting for a tribute album. And so this project was born. I'm planning to give it to her on Mother's Day so I've got a few more weeks to get it perfect and to get my daughter to write something for the book along with the sneaking around to find pictures. But for now I will share the four pages I have finished so far.

The first LO pic was taken on her first night home after having surgery to remove the tumor. Although she had just learned that she would have to undergo more chemo and a stronger dose than before. She was more than concerned with our needs than her own need for rest and sat up with us for quite a while during supper and after.
This LO and the second one - Proverb 31 Mother - are made with Lifesong Kreations Mom's Beauty kit. I love the greens and purples in this this kit. The flowers are simply beautiful as well as all the vintage elements. Mom loves flowers so this is the perfect kit for her. I'm mixing before and after pics in the so we can see the changes over the years and most importantly since her diagnosis as to me her true strenght and beauty can only be seen now. You can grab this kit here.

The second kit is also by Lifesong Kreations and is called Holding Onto Hope.

As I said this kit was perfect, the name was perfect, the colors were perfect. The elements were perfect. Like I said it was fate that put us together this month. When scanning over the elements I say this journaling tag "In God I put my Hope." That said it all. My mom has put all her hope in God's healing hands and she has faith that he will heal her. Even after the news of more chemo she continued to hold onto her faith in God and his ability to keep her going. And going she is doing. During the last warm weekend we had, she had my dad and GS out pulling weeds in her flower beds. She even crawled down there and pulled a few herself. Thats some even my old knees no longer allow.
She loves her flowers and even sick she is determined to make sure the are perfect.
And she takes such pride in them. My Papa used to call my Grandmother his perfect flower and I'm beginning to look at my mom that way too. You know it's funny but I never thought of beauty in strenght, stubbornness, and downright hard headiness but when I look at her I do. Although she has good days and bad days and sometimes doesn't even feel like getting out of bed, she will do anything for us. Her main concern is us and that's what makes her the perfect mother, at least to us. Thank you mom for all you do. You are my inspiration and I pray for your healing and that you will be around for many days to come. God truly blessed me when he gave you to me as my mom. I love you.
Remember to snag Holding Onto Hope at Digitals.

Another St. Patrick's Day Convoy


Yes, it's time for another Scrapbook Kit Freebie. I call this kit Feeling Lucky and it's part of the Twisted Convoy St. Patrick's Day Convoy. This kit consist of 28 papers and 48 elements and is more traditional in design than the last one was. It also includes Lucky - the St. Paddy's Day Bear.

Like before you can grab the kit at two separate download sites. I will be making a decision as to which site to start using exclusively soon so your input on which site works better from your end would be greatly appreciated. And like always, if you download, leave some love, advise, or constructive criticism.

Additional links for Birthday Party Blast and Hurry Up and Get Here Spring

Several people have mentioned they are having download problems with File Savr. It seems many designers have switched to File Savr because of the problems 4-Share is having right now. I can only assume that File Savr can't handle to number of downloads and is kicking people out. Because of that I have made a search of the internet and talked with other designers and unless I subscribe to at a rate of $7 to $10 a month to another FTP, File Savr or 4-Share is the best I can find. File Savr is subscription site also but is cheap enough I do not feel bad about spending the money on it. After all, my kits are freebies. So for that reason I have decided to upload the kits to 4-share also. I have not had any problems with this site but I also have a good virus/spyware software on my computer. I assure you that my kits are virus free upon uploading to their site but I ask you take these additional precautions as I do not want to be responsible for you getting a virus. Instead of opening the kits from the download, save the zip files and run your own virus/spyware software on the zip before opening. This should prevent you from getting a virus. Most who have gotten viruses from 4-share stated that the virus came from ads on 4-share and not from kits they downloaded but I ask that you take every precaution when downloading from that site. With that said, here are the additional links;

Hurry Up And Get Here Spring Collaboration

I've got another collaboration for you this month. Me and my crazy self joined two collaborations that post on the same day. These have keep me hopping the past few days but I've finally finished and posted both. This is a new collaboration group for me - ADS Designers. Their collaboration is easier as it allows you to do whatever - tagger size kits, QPs, Brag Books, full size kits, just papers, just elements, just an Alpha, whatever. I'm probably going to continue with this one, especially since it is so open to what you do. This month their theme whas Hurry Up And Get Here Spring! I can relate to that since it's back down into the 30's today after several days of 70's. I could really use some spring time here. My kit is entitled "Hurry Up Spring" and consists of 24 papers and 37 elements. Just click the links below the preview picture to download your kit then hop on the train and get the rest of your kit.
