I Made It, I Made It! Happy Dance, I Made It!!

I'm so thrilled to announce that I made it through to Round 3 for the Little Dreamer 2008 Apprentice Program!!! I cannot tell you how happy I am!!! And I want to thank those of you who took time to go by and view my page!! You all helped my little 3 Wishes submission become the 2nd most viewed submission, and I had the 2nd most comments out of all 40 submissions! Talk about making my day!!! This made my year!! I'm so happy that everyone liked it so well, and I hope I can deliver that same kind of crowd pleasing submission for this next round! Which I am working feverishly on right at this moment!

So, if you left me a comment on the appropriate blog post (2 down) and if you left me a comment at LDD with an email address at either place, you got an email from me letting you know where to go get the freebie!! You also got a note saying that there is an extra special goodie with your name on it coming soon to your inbox! Hopefully later today!! It's special, and it's just for you!

For those of you who didn't leave a comment, but you still want the freebie, you can go to LDD and get it anyway! How cool is that? Go here, and it's yours!

I would like to again thank all my supporters, your sweet comments just rocked my world and made me so happy! Thanks for all the good vibes! Now, pray that I get incredibly inspired and come up with something just as fabulous for round 3!!

Ok, back to work! Have a great day!

More News . . .

Well, by the time you read this, I should know if I made it to Round 3 in the Little Dreamer Apprentice contest. It's so nervewracking! I hope I can sleep tonight!!

But I do have some news. Little Dreamer has received so many requests for the elements we created, that they have decided to go ahead and host download links for all of the elements packs to be given away free to everyone! Those should start to be up on Tuesday. So, make sure you go by and snag all those gorgeous element packs!

Now, as for the deal I made with you . . . and to those who took time to go by LDD and comment and come back here and leave me a comment (about 25 of you) it seems kind of unfair that EVERYONE is going to get my element pack now. Sooooo, I have decided to cook up something extra special for you . . to go with the element pack! So, if you don't mind waiting a few more days, everyone who left me comments is going to get a special treat from me.

I would like to thank everyone who went by and looked, my submission is the 2nd most viewed, and I have the 2nd highest number of comments!! That's thrilling!

If you didn't take time to comment, and would still like to get my element pack and the 39 other element packs that are going to be offered, here is the link. Go by and get it and please be kind and leave some love for those ladies for their hard work!

I also want to remind you that my new kit, Strong Shoes, debuts at Digital Freebies today! I hope you'll go by and snag it while it's 30% off this week! Here's the preview!

And don't forget to watch for my Friday Freebie coming out Friday in the Digital Freebies newsletter!!!

March Madness!! Freebies and New Products out the Wazoo!

Wow, March is one busy month for me, talk about MARCH MADNESS!!! And it's all great stuff!! First off, I have an ad in the DigiShopTalk March edition of the Insider. It's a free publication, with lots of coupons, scrapping tips, interviews with designers & scrappers, and some tutorials. You should sign up for it if you don't get it! It's always full of great stuff!

So here's my ad . . . it is introducing a brand new kit I have coming out next week (3/11/08) called, 'Strong Shoes.' This kit was inspired by my son, Jackson. I got the title from a quote from Cori Ten Boom, "If God sends us on strong paths, we are provided strong shoes." This quote just touches me so much, when I think of Jack. He has been put on a strong path. And I pray and believe everyday the Lord is providing him with strong shoes to get through the rough times.

The kit is in some of my favorite colors, brown, blue and green. I have some fun painted embellishments, and a couple of the papers have an artsy look to them. I'll go ahead an post the previews, just to give you a taste . . .

As you can see, there were so many elements, I had to use 2 pages for the preview!!

Did ya notice, one of my Scrap-a-Patches made it into this kit!! Look for more of those to come soon! And of course that word art, that's the quote that started it all!

Strong Shoes debuts at Digital Freebies on March 11th, and it will be 30% off for two weeks! I also have my very first Friday Freebie coming out in the Digital Freebies Friday Freebie newsletter! It's a big deal!!! I hope everyone signs up for the newsletter that hasn't so you can get my freebie and all the fabulous freebies that go out every single FRIDAY!! My freebie is an Add-On Pack to what else, Strong Shoes. You have to wait to see that one!! So don't miss it!

There will also be a brag book and Quick Page available through the month of March.

Now, if'n you want a taste of this kit now, you can go over to Digital Freebies and participate in two challenges and receive 4, count 'em, 4 quick page freebies from me!! I am in the spotlight for the Designer Spotlight Challenge hosted by Angela Sharrow. And if you join in that challenge you will get these two gorgeous pages . . . absolutely FREE!

And if you participate in the 2 part Wordy Challenge, you will receive these lovely pages . . .

And remember, you can add these to the full QP album that will be coming out later in the month!!

I think you'll find this is a great kit for all your guys layouts, but it also works well for ladies, since this is such a popular color scheme right now.

Next up, I have another new kit that came out yesterday at DF, called "My Bonnie Lassie." This is a sweet little girlie kit with an Irish Twist. Yes, there are some shamrocks and a bit 'o luck of the Irish in there, but it's not just a St. Paddy's Day kit. It's just for your pretty little girls, who happen to love pink & green! Here's a peek . . .

Aren't those papers cute? And you also get these darlin' elements . . .

And the best part is the whole kit is on sale this week for only $2.80!! Shut up!!! It's true, so get on by and pick it up! You'll be glad you did!!

Also, in Tuesday's Digital Freebies newsletter (which you've already signed up for, right?) I had this cute little freebie! It's a 4 page bragbook, already for your pictures of your bonnie lassie, and your own finishing touches to make it your own!! FREE. Doesn't get any better than that.

I also have a set of cardboard frames out, there is a personal version, and a commercial use version available . . . very reasonably priced, so don't miss out!

And if all that wasn't enough, I'm working on my submission for Round 2 of the Little Dreamer Apprentice 2008 program! I'm having so much fun with this, I cannot wait to show of what I'm creating for it!! But, I have to wait!! And just to remind you, if you haven't gone by Little Dreamer to pick up all the freebie mini kits submitted by the 40 contestants, you better get over there. They are only available for a limited time!

Whew. I'm tired after all that. Well, I'm off in a bit to take my dad to the doctor. Keep him in your prayers. He's a diabetic, and about to lose his eyesight in his one good eye. He has been completely blind in the other eye since an accident about 15 years ago. Now, he's having real problems with the other one. So, if you think of it, say a prayer for him. We believe in prayer around these parts.

Stay tuned, tomorrow I will be posting some challenges featuring the layouts of my delightful, and talented Creative Team! There will be prizes!!!
