It's all about family today!

Just like the title says, it's all about family today with my new kit, {Family Ties}. That name makes me think about Alex P. Keaton - anyone else? LOL

I'm ready for some springtime around here and this kit shows it! Lots of glitter too. Have you noticed I've become a little obsessed with it lately? It's just fun to make and looks pretty. Yes, I'm easily distracted by shiny things - LOL! So, of course, I've got some coordinating glitter styles.

Also sort of new this week is a past speed scrap participation prize. A fun pack of charms and lots of attachments. VERY versatile. These attachments can be used for just about anything!

Here's some inspiration from my CT and the ScrapMatters CT as well.

Aren't they fabulous?! I'm so lucky to be associated with ScrapMatters and all the awesome people there. I just love it!

Well, now for the freebie. I don't know how many of you have been following this thread at DST but there seems to be some NASTY stuff out there at 4shared, which makes me really wary of posting a freebie. BUT, I'm absolutely positive that none of my stuff has viruses and most of the stuff you download from 4shared probably doesn't either. It's all the ads and garbage that come along with using 4shared. I also wondering if part of the problem may be all the crazy widgets people have on their blogs. Be very careful of those third party widgets (like the music players and stat counters and maps.) You have no idea what's really there. I haven't had any problems with any viruses or other junk from there but I also don't download a ton of freebies - very rarely actually. I have Vista on my laptop and that's supposed to help but I'm not positive about that. I also have the paid version of AVG, use Firefox with the No-Script and AdBlock Plus add-ons. Everything is updated several times a day and I scan my computer often. THIS IS SOMETHING WE ALL SHOULD BE DOING. Sorry for the rant, I just want to let everyone know that I will still be using 4shared (only for the lack of a better alternative - although I'm still searching for it!) and I think it's safe to use 4shared as long as you are protecting yourself. This isn't just a 4shared problem - it's an internet problem and if you are using the internet it could happen to you.

OK - on to the fun stuff. Here's a little freebie add-on for {Family Ties}.

Just click on the preview to go to 4shared. Included are 2 papers, 1 distressed wordart, 1 vellum circle, 1 ribbon tie, and another tree. I hope you enjoy it! If you do leave me a little love here on the blog - I never remember to check the comments at 4shared. Have a great day!

Monday's going to be a busy day!

First off, ScrapMatters is getting ready for another Daily Download. All you mom's of boys addicted to video games (or maybe wives of husbands?) you're not going to want to miss it. It's so cool. Check out the SM forum on Monday for the first day!

And next, ScrapMatters is having a Designer Contest. It sounds like so much fun and I can't wait to see all the entries.

There have been some more details posted in the SM forum here. Hope you'll join us in the fun!! The mentoring alone sounds like such a great prize - I wish there had been someone out there to help me when I first started. Especially someone to tell me how sad those first few kits were! LOL!

Speed Scrap time!

And just for joining the fun you can get this brand new element set by me! I'm hoping I can be there but I have to teach a little class to 12-year-old girls tonight at church (scrapbooking stuff of course!) so I don't know if I'll be home on time. :( I may jump in late though, we'll see!

Are you ready for this?

Seriously - are you ready? Get comfortable! I have LOTS to show you today and a little giveaway. First off - I'm so excited to show you my first ever commercial use products!
If you have been thinking about starting a little digi-designing then this is the perfect kit for you - it has everything you need to get started! Two 12x12 cardstock textures, two flat ribbons, one flower, one metal chain with clip, one bulldog clip, one cardboard frame, one bow, one folded ribbon tab, and one ribbon hanger clip. Everything is greyscale - all you need to add is your creativity and imagination!

And as you may have noticed, I've become a little addicted to glitter lately and I figured I might as well get all of you to join me! I've got lots of new glitter styles that coordinate with all my latest kits. Personal and commercial use!

One for {Always Kiss Me Goodnight} which is still on sale for only $4, but hurry! The sale ends tomorrow!

One for {Girls Rock} which is now available in the store if you missed the Daily Download in January.

And one for {Tiny Dancer} too!

Wait - what is {Tiny Dancer} you ask? It's the newest and cutest kit ever! Britt-ish Designs, Fluffy Bunny Feet Designs and I all teamed up for this one and it is C-U-T-E!!!
It is so jam-packed with yumminess perfect for your little ballerina or cheerleader or even your big ones. Perfect for non-dance LOs too though - we tried to make it super versatile! Plus there are 2 full alphas! Wow.

Here are some pages showing {Tiny Dancer} in action:

All the SM Designers teamed up to make collabs and they are all on sale for 20% off but for today ONLY. You do NOT want to miss these great collabs. Go check them out!

And finally - the giveaway. Well, tomorrow is Valentine's Day and I'm sure my husband has totally forgotten about it. He usually remembers at about 10 o'clock ON Valentine's Day that he forgot to get me anything - LOL! But it's o.k. - he does lots of little things everyday for me so I still love him lots! So let's have some fun. Leave me a little comment here on the bloggy about your worst Valentine's Day ever and I'll pick one to receive my {Always Kiss Me Goodnight} kit for FREE! I'll be back on Monday to pick. Have a good one!
