I Won A Kit from Roberta D'Achille!

I am so happy! Roberta D'Achille posted a challenge at DST that she would give her newest kit, "L’Shanah Tovah," for free to the first 5 people who e-mailed her. And for the first time in a very long time, I was lucky! This is the layout I made using the kit. Thank you, Roberta!

The kit has the most wonderful rich colors. Dark reds, deep greens, and some textured pages that are simply amazing. But don't take my work for it, check it out here:

I really like this sketch by the talented Jen Caputo. Have you seen her sketches? If not, you have to check them out. They are awesome!

Card Templates for Download at Scrapbook-Graphics

OMG, have you seen the challenges going on at Scrapbook-Graphics? If not, you HAVE to see it. We always scrap pages about our children, pets, and moments of celebration. But how often do we REALLY scrap about our dissapointments or our moments of desperation where we wish we could start over and erase that specific chapter out of our lives?

They have a challenge at the moment where you get to scrap about 10 things you wish you had known. I have to tell you that the layouts featured in the newsletter were F A N T A S T I C! These ladies poured their hearts out. I don't know them, but was so very proud of them for putting their thoughts down in paper and sharing it with the rest of us. That, my friends, takes courage. As for me, gone are the days of fluff. I will face my good days and my bad days and will scrap them equally. After all, our lives are not perfect...

Before I forget, below is a link to Scrapbook-Graphics where you can check it out; and while there, check Studio Start #11 - there is even a surprise there for you! What are you waiting for? Run! Oh yeah, here is your link:

Signing off, the always lovely, Kait

First Freebie

I don't know about any of you, but I love using COFFEE STAINS on some of my pages. If you like them as much as I do, here is a link for you to download them. Please leave a comment if you download it. They are grey, but you can recolor with your program's hue/saturation.

Thanks and enjoy!

Still trying to figure out how this works

Ok. I am not a good blogger. I am still trying to figure out how to set things up here. All I want to do is set up the blog for my layouts, my favorite designers, galleries and freebies.

I will have to work harder at making this work.
