Summer of Love part 4 ... and a newsletter freebie

Here is the final part of Summer of Love, 3 torn papers, 3 big messy stitches and the ribbon I forgot to put into part 3's zip. Thanks again for all your great comments, but it still amazes me that so many download and not many bother to say thanks. I know this is a problem all of us who give freebies away experience. We work hard to give you something for nothing, so a thank you is all we ask.

Just wanted to say a big thank you and to give credit to An, for her fabulous filmstrip and torn paper templates that I used in making this freebie.

Download HERE

The freebie below is only obtainable through Bonnie's newsletter, I know a lot of you have signed up for it, so you will be getting the link in the newsletter. For those who do not get her newsletter, you can still sign up for it if you want this freebie
You can sign up for Bonnie's newsletter HERE. It is all about scrapping, lots of useful information and freebies, really worth while getting.
Thanks to Rejuscrap for her folded corner template and to Sonia Harvy for her folded paper template, I used a combination of both!

Gorgeous LO by Susan Reynolds

Thanks so much Susan for your beautiful double page LO. Susan did this for her little boy to take to school to give to his teacher. The template is by Doreen Stolz, the font is Artistamp Medium. She used Summertime and Sherbet Delight of mine.

Summer of Love - part 3

Here is part 3 of Summer of Love for you. I thought this would be the last but ended up doing some torn papers and big messy stitches. You can grab part 4 (the last) tomorrow. Thanks for all your great comments. I had so much fun doing this kit, and for once I used it a few times for LO's myself. Please, please, please send me some of your LO's done with it, I would love to see (my email is on the right)

Eventually... Summer of Love-part 2

Hello again.
I have been spending the last few days getting part 2 of Summer of Love ready. It has been slow and frustrating, with my PSP going 2 miles per hour!! But it is done eventually. I am looking forward to getting my new PC later this week or next week, and hopefully Photoshop to play with. I am determined not to let a soul touch my new baby, as at the moment my daughter shares this one with me, and it is full to capacity, so I am not surprised PSP is so slow. Thank you all for your kind comments on part 1. I must admit I have loved every minute of creating this kit, especially the birds. I am slowly feeling better, although I have still not ventured out of the house, except to take the kids to school. Great excuse for recuperating in front of my PC!!

Please tell me what you think in the comments section of my BLOG, I love reading your comments.
If anyone knows who made this cute tag, please let me know so I can add their credits to my blog, thanks.
Thanks to An for letting me know that Glory created this!!

I am home and feeling a lot better.Thanks so much for all of you who sent me well wishes. Of course I could not stay away from my blog for too long. I feel as if I have missed out on so much in the blogging world.

3600 x 3600 ...AT LONG LAST!!

I have struggled for ages to make decent 3600 x 3600 papers, I could not get the quality right. I must apologize for any papers that were not of a high enough standard, or not the correct size. But at long last with many hours of fiddling around I have GOT IT., with PSP being very slow and freezing on me. Does anyone else have this problem with PSP? Is Photoshop any better?
So here is part 1 of my new 3 part freebie (I think it will be 3 parts!), with high quality 3600 x 3600 papers and big elements!! Quite proud of myself for persevering.

The Little Birds freebie (scroll down) is still up for grabs to anyone who sends me an LO using anything of mine.

Mad scrapping frenzy!!

I just love the beginning of the month when all the new challenges are up at Snap&scrap and Digiscrapshak. I have gone on a scrapping frenzy and finished the challenges at Snap&scrap and am now off to Digiscrapshak, where there is a kit for free if you complete 4 of their challenges before the end of the month, and there is such a variety of challenges to choose from. I don't know if anyone else is like me, I need the challenges to inspire and motivate me, otherwise I get major scrappers block.
Don't forget about the awesome daily download at Snap&scrap blog!!

The little kit contains 3 textured papers, 5 flowers, two stems, a tree,an overlay and word art.
