One of my favorite parts of being on a CT is making layouts with beautiful full kits. I bought a few here and there before (if it was a really good sale). I mean all the freebies out there, why buy a kit. Now I know why! Because the kits on sale are down right amazing. The elements go with the papers and it makes putting together that special memory so much easier. Right now Charlie is having a sale from the 15th of December until the 31st December..a huge 50 % off her entire STORE! So you can get it now for the best price!
Charlie's new kit Hip Hip Hooray is just like that, within 24 hours 2 layouts went together. This last one, I had so much fun doing the frame in the layout, I thought perhaps you might want it as a quick page. You can add your own title and date and plop in a picture and done. This QP can also be re sized easily for and 8x8 album. I do most of my printing in that size. Here is the download link for FREEBIE QP, and the password is: charlie . I hope you like it and would so love to hear if you like it. It is amazing how much a small hey, thanks is for me. I have made it as easy as I can, no words to input, just input the comment and hit enter. I am glad I am able to give back to the digi world.
I am learning more about actions (ways you manipulate pictures to make them stand out or retouch to take out shadows, etc) and the tutorials I watch, the man calls working with them Actionland and I become dictator of all the little actions...I laugh so hard thru his tutorials, that I learned. I will try and do a blog later on him, I found him thru Pioneer Woman.
This picture my kids are so tan and healthy looking, it is at the end of summer before church on Sunday. They are such a blessing to my life. I love being a mom, and even when they drive me bonkers, (3 weeks off for Christmas) I still remember that they made me a mom. I will stop, as I think I am getting a bit weepy...lol
Tony and I are Christmas shopping (completely) today! I will make the "list" and we will do Wal-Mart, Target and BigLots! Our favorite stores for Christmas. It is getting so close! I am so excited as my parents are coming for Boxing Day...the day after Christmas! They haven't been up here since we first got her, but one time to pick the kids up and leave. I want to show them my town and my home. I am proud of how far we have come since arriving here a few short months ago!
Hope you enjoy the freebie and take a break from the hecticness of Christmas, scrap a page and hug your family!
