About Me

I am a 51 year old woman who in the past few years have been through one thing after another. Even though I see God's hand in it all it has and continues to be a difficult road. I feel I cannot be the only person thinking and feeling the way that I do. Maybe not all of you and its not my intention to offend yet to help. So if you disagree then lets agree to disagree. This is the truth as it applies to my life and we could differ. This is my journey and I pray that in some way it may be helpful for you or someone you know. God Bless you all on your journey whatever it may be.

I am participating in a Blog Train. It does not offically start until April 4th so if you try any of the other links I have here they will not work until then. I am putting mine up now because yep!! You said it VACATION!!!! I am so glad to be leaving this cold, cold place called Port Orchard WA. Where am I going you ask? Hmmmm..... You guess it!!! Sunny Southern CA where the temp has and I pray will remain about 70 degrees my whole stay!!!! It is still in the 30's here. Maybe up to 50 if we are lucky!! I will be gone for one week. During Easter Break for my DH and my DS. They get each other for one week and I get sun!!! I will be staying with my parents in the Back Country so I will not be by the ocean but that is okay. My skin doesnt much like too much sun! I am blonde and fair skinned. Probably the fairest you could imagine!!!

I decided for the Blog Train I would give away my Paper Pack for April's Rainbow. The swatch was almost an exact match for this kit I made. Lucky huh?
Here is a photo of it. The links will be under that. Then scroll down just a bit further. I have some fun important news for you!!


Here are the links: www.kisscraps.com/april/als_aprilsrainbow_part02.zip

Okay, now the great important news!! My new store will be opening on April 1, 2008!! It is at www.kisscraps.com Keep It Simple Scraps. I am so excited for this opening. I have never been at the birth of a new business before so this is sooooo exciting for me!!! What I would like to tell you is that the Element Pack that goes with this Paperpack will be available at my new store. So when you pick this portion of the blog train dont forget to visit my store at www.kisscraps.com. I cant link you up to it because it is not open as of this writing!! Here is a preview of that Element Pack.


This is one of my most favorite kits I have done so far. I so think it is worth the money I am asking also. There are so many things you can do with this kit. Easter, Little Girls or Big Girls pages, Spring, Summer, Mother's Day, Even a Wedding could be done with this kit. There is definitely enough here to do a great album or a book. The sky is the limit.

Okay now what you have been waiting for the links to the rest of the Blog Train. Please remember to leave a little love. Everyone has worked hard on their portions and definitely has been generous to offer it to you for free. Have fun and enjoy the rest of the Blog Train!!


I am so hoping that everyone listed here was able to finish their contributions. Since I will be in CA I will not get the final list to share with you. If someone did not finish or had something come up I am sorry in advance to leading you astray. Please enjoy and please remember to leave a little love!!

God Bless you all!!! Please remember to pray for the leaders of our country. Whether you agree with them or not they all still need our prays right now. To make the right decisions that God would have them make to straighten out this mess we are in!! I will post again in about 1 week. By all and Happy Scrapping!!!

Today in my quiet time of prayer and study I had a revelation. God given I am sure since I never have and never will come up on my own something this huge!

A "light bulb" moment as Oprah so aptly puts it. It came to me that the reason why Satan has been after me ever since I became a Christian at 8 years old and has used some of my most tremendous weaknesses and negative issues in my life to his advantage and sadly to say I have fallen for most of them and especially the fight or flight response which for me is definitely flight! The reason is because I am and will become an even greater warrior for God and Jesus Christ!! God is using this time to mold me and strengthen me into someone of great resolve and he will use me in a huge and magnificent way to further his work here on earth. What a great thing huh? I love it, love it, love it!!! Today is and was a good day!! Satan is trying even at this second to try to undermine that and use that to have me self sabotage myself by saying whew!! It's over!! The dust is settling and life will get back to normal. Hmmm.... What is normal anyways. What I did decide to do is let tomorrow be tomorrow and not bring it into today. Be grateful for a good day today and the strength that comes from that. No fears today, No not knowing what to do or where to turn. For today. Tomorrow will take care of itself. Today I claim and claimed VICTORY over the adversary!! PRAISE GOD!!!

Tomorrow a very very dear friend of mine and two other beautiful women from my church will be coming over tomorrow and we may begin to get a game plan on how to simplify my life and get things de-cluttered and organized in my home so Satan cannot hold this over my head of why I am not good enough to treat myself to a day off. Or go out and have a few fun days a week. I need so desperately to get out of my home and do some things that I like, not errands but things that I like to do and also to spend time with my Christian friends. At the beginning of the week I was struggling with this whole process and even letting them come over at all. It is a humiliating process for me. A humbling one at the very least. Well, today Thursday the day before the are coming. I am feeling at Peace over the whole prospect. We may not get much accomplished physically tomorrow but I feel there will be some movement forward and that in itself will be a comfort for me.

Tomorrow is a new day and believe it or not I am anxious for it. Whatever it ends up holding. This hasnt happened in a very long time for me.

No New Layouts Today

Even though I do not have any layouts today I feel compelled to write. I started sharing my journey right now Spiritually and how can I stop now? My hearts desire is that God will use my blogging in some great and magnificant way to touch someone even if it is just one person. Just so that they know they are not alone. The horrifying feeling that we are the only one that is and has ever gone through something is Satan, the adversary or evil at its core. Whatever you choose to call it. We are not alone. God has made that so clear to me this week. I and others have prayed that God would bring other women into my life. Women who either have or are going through what I am. Women to share with. Women to pray with and will pray for me. A support system. My behavior has always been. When God brings me to that broken (teachable) state and he starts to move in my life, I back away and then hightail it out of there. Hightail it as fast as I can go. I dont want to be that kind of servant anymore. I want to stand strong and be found faithful when this crisis in my life is over. When I have finished going through this season in my life.
This morning I was crying and fitful inside myself with not knowing what to do next. Just not knowing what he wants or what I want. Feeling like I just dont know anything.
Now, I am Praising God for this because this is the place where I really, even though I have been a Christian since I was eight, find Him. I mean really find Him! His love is so huge for me!! He forgives everything before I even say it or before I even do it!! Trust has been a big issue for me ever since a family member abused me in a very personal way. So now I am learning and claiming Lord God I trust you!!! I trust you with everything!! I trust that YOU will show me the way. You will show me what to know!! YOU will show up for me in a way that I have no concept of. You are doing it now as I write in this blog!! You are doing things in my life that in no way shape or form could every be coincidental!! YOU are magnificant and an awesome GOD!!
How powerful are your lessons to me and I pray that I will continue to hear you!!
So ladies and also the guys out there please know that you are not alone!! Pray for your support circle to appear because it is in my life in a way I never thought possible!! He is working it out for me and I am so grateful!! He can do it for you too!!!!

I am Humbled

I am humbled. So much am I humbled and hope that I will continue to be humble. God has a way of humbling us just like we humble our own children!! I am continually grateful to him!! I praise him above all else. Yes, I even drop to my knees and praise him with my face on the floor, my love is so great!! All else has been stripped from me. It takes what it takes to get us to this point. Why as humans do we continually think we can navigate our lives without him? I have crashed countless times and return to him scrapped bruised and broken.

Life is so precious and I am so grateful for my family. We and our animals which make up our family are so fragile. Thursday night our dog Pierre, which we rescued from someone who was neglecting him terribly and I believe abused him horribly, was hit by a car on last Thursday night. The people did not even stop. Our dog was a small dog and they were going at a speed that I am sure they did not even recognize that they had hit anything significant. It reminded me very strongly that our cars are dangerous things that can cause great harm if we misuse them or are preoccupied while we are driving!! I implore everyone who drives to keep to the speed limit. Even if you are running late please pay attention. It may be one of your own love ones that may suffer because of your inattention. Yes, the shock has worn off and my heart is broken. I have cried a lot today and feel tired and worn out. This was the last straw of many hard things that have happened to me in the last month to six weeks. Yesterday at Church God blessed me so much and began to fill my heart with hope and love. I am beginning to not just see his presence but fill it ever slightly. All this time I know that he hasnt left me he was teaching me. Teaching me to trust him. I am still learning and most likely have to turn it all over to him many more times in my life. I do know that something big will happen out all of what he is teaching me right now. I just need to hang on and I am hanging on. Hanging on for dear life and will not let go!!

Here is a layout I did last night using my Grandma's House kit to make a memorial layout for my dog Pierre. I am thinking about having a 12 X 12 made and framing it for our family to hang up so he will always be a part of us. I miss him so. I know he is in a better place with no more suffering. He was suffering so with his skin which was not resolving and the DR. doubted that it would. He was old. Most of his life spent in great sorrow. I hope and pray we were able to lift that somewhat for him.


I am so grateful that I know without a shadow of a doubt that we will one day be re-united in heaven. What an awesome God we have. Awesome isnt even a good enough word. I will miss him until thing. My sadness right now is overwhelming.

On a happier note I also made a layout with my new kit. April's Rainbow. It will be available at Keep it Simple Scraps www.kisscraps.com as soon as it opens. It is a very spring like kit with beautiful colors. I wanted to showcase a picture of Marc and John Paul. I have tried to document their relationship and how they are changing as they grow up as wonderful brothers.


This picture was taken in December of 2008. Marc is in Iraq and is safe and sound as much as he can be over there. He is in his field of Medicine and is in charge of Sick call of about 200 or so people all together. I am so proud of him and his accomplishments at such a young age. Lots of responsibility for a 25 year old.

Thank you so much for stopping by and I am getting excited for the Grand Opening of Keep It Simple Scraps.

I also wanted to let you know that I am participating in a blog train that will be happening on April 3rd you can check back and pick up the paper pack for the above kit for free. I will be participating in Blog Trains now and then so make sure to check back here often so you dont miss out on the freebies i do decide to give away.

Hugs, Have a great Day and Happy Scrapping!!

First Kit for Keep It Simple Scraps Site

I have a preview of my new kit for Keep It Simple Scraps. I am so excited for my new store to open. Cheryl and Dyanna asked me to come a long with them and join them in their new venture. It is a very pared down version of The Scrapping Garden. The great thing is there is no pressure and I get to have my life back!!! No longer do I feel chained to this computer because I have to get this done for this chat or get that done for that challenge, or Make sure to get your submission done for the Mega Kit. And also did I forget to do three submissions for my store or did I only do two. It all gets to be tooo, tooo much!! Then add on all of my commitments as Church and home and family and I am overwhelmed just thinking about it!!! This new site hopefully will take all of that stress away and just let me have fun designing. I know that I really enjoyed doing April's Rainbow Element and Paperpack.

I do have a little bad news not to me but you may think so. I am not going to be offering very many freebies anymore. I feel as if this community is getting to saturated with them and It really does effect my sales. I dont expect to make a million dollars at this but it does take time and effort to come up with new and fresh ideas for all of my kits as well as the elements and papers inside of them. It does cost me money everytime I make a kit as I have purchased actions, as well as other CU items to keep everything fresh. All I want is to make enough money to break even. I havent even come close to that and I believe it is because of all the freebies I have been giving away. This is not your fault as a consumer. It is the fault of the whole designing community at large. It is a sociatol problem of wanting something for nothing, or at least at a great discount. We as designers are small business people. Even though we may belong to a large site we are still in business for ourselves. We do all of our own advertising and we each own our own stores inside of the site itself. We also pay comission fees so that the site expenses can be paid and it they are lucky the administrators. Yes, it is even tough being an administrator of a site. Many times they go unpaid because the site expenses barely got paid for that paticular month. This is a dog eat dog business. And it is saturated. There are more and more new designers every day and more and more new sites opening. Not that this is a bad thing it just makes more competition out there in cyberspace.

Okay, I am off of my soap box. I am sorry if I offended anyone I just needed to get the above off of my chest. It has been weighing me down for a long long time. I know you are going to love the new site. We are trying to make it a little more upscale without losing that homey feel that was so great at The Scrapping Garden. Again, I want your feedback. I want you to let me know what you would like to see in my kits. Believe me I need some help coming up with ideas. I want my new store to be fresh but still contain updated versions of your old favorits. Look for a Grandma's House two, and another masculine kit like boys, boys, boys. I may make some QP's for sale with these kits or enough 8 X 8 QP's for you to make a nice mini album with.

I am rambling on and on and I bet all you want to see it the previews! LOL Just like me huh? Keep you waiting and in suspense. Well here they are. I hope you like them and will be there on Grand Opening day to purchase them. Believe me like everyone else my business is suffering because of the economy and I can really use your help.



I am working on a few more kits now. I am working on an element kit of my favorite Bible Verses as well as working on a Page kit called Feelin' Lucky. These will also be in my new store and I will be sharing previews of these also. Notice that I changed the color of my logo. I needed to do that so it would show up better on the Black Background of our wrapper. The darker color did not stand out that well.

I am having problems with another head cold right now that I believe has turned into a sinus infection. I think I am going to need to get in to see my doctor. I am trying not to go unless I really need to because we are having problems with our Medical Insurance. You think I wouldnt because we have military benefits because my DH is retired but YES, WE ARE HAVING MAJOR PROBLEMS. Sorry didnt mean to yell it just makes me so so mad!!! I hate insurance companies.

Anyways, thanks for listening to all of my rantings. I know they were many today.

Oh, Oh, Oh, before I forget I am participating in the Blog Train for Easter. I will be offering my April's Rainbow as part of the Blog Train so this is your golden opportunity to get a freebie. 18 papers worth. A $5.00 value!! Yes, I may be participaing in blog trains every once in a while and this will be a golden opportunity because I am not going to be offering freebies very much any more. So keep your eyes peeled and come back often. The group that I am participating in has a lot of Blog Trains.

Have a wonderful day and I am going to try to post at least once a week. I am not going to try to promise something that is impossible for me to do. If I can post a few times a week I will but I am really going to try once a week. I hope I can make it!! ROFL

Sad News

I have some real sad news. The Scrapping Garden is closing its doors at midnight on March 19th. It has been my home away from home for the past two years almost three. I have been designing for them for the past year and a couple of months. I am going to miss them terribly.

My sad news though can be your great news. I am going to be selling my entire store for $20.00. Over $75.00 of designing heaven. The only catch is you have to have it all downloaded before the store closes.

I will be following a few of the designers to a new site. We dont have a definite opening date. We are hoping by April 1st, so keep your eyes peeled and watch the site develop. www.kisscraps.com
Keep it Simple Scraps. We are developing a Misson Statement as we speak and are working closely to make sure that this site will help you Keep it Simple and make it meaningful. Not just slapping pictures on the page. Its not about getting the challenge done no matte what so you can get the freebies it is about leaving a legacy for your children and their children and on and on and on. I know that you will love shopping at our new site and also find the chats and challenges we do have will help you get books finished and that they are meaningful.

So check out my store at The Scrapping Garden under April Sevigny and either buy a kit or two they are all $2.00 or Buy My Store!!! Thank you so much for your continued patronage of my store and I look forward to doing business with you in the future!!

Well, it has been a little while hasnt it. I am sorry about that. I have been so busy. Busy designing new kits for you and busy taking care of the family and doing housework. Oh my I said it. I said the bad word, housework. Well moving on! lol I have some wonderful things to share with you. Some layouts and a freebie!! Yes, I said the good word!! FREEBIE!!! It coordinates with our (The Scrapping Garden's) first Members Choice kit!! It was a few extra pieces I made in case we decided to do a bonus. Well, we decided not to do a bonus and so here you go a small gift for you! The downside. You have to wait until the end of this post. Make sure you read it all because if you dont the link will not work (NOT!!!) I would appreciate if you do read and look at everything though. I have a lot to say ya know and hope that someone is reading! lol

I heard from my DS (The one in Iraq). He is at his new home in An Niminiyah. He has his assignment. He will be doing medical work after all. He will be doing sick call for approximately 120 - 200 people. He may have a lot of time with no patients but the paperwork is killer. He will most likely be doing a lot of reading and a lot of college work. It is good to know that he is safe and sound. If you get my newsletter you will get more detailed info on him so if you are interested or just nosey lol then make sure to leave a comment with your email addy and I will make sure that you get on my list. My newsletter seems to be going out once a month right now but may get to be more than that. Not more than twice a month though.

On the first my Vintage January Kit will be put into my store for $3.00.

I also am adding an add-on duo to my In My Heart Mini Kit. If you remember right the Mini Kit was offered free in January and will be put into the store for $2.00 on Feburary 1st. Also, I have a Paperpack add-on and an Element Add-on that coordinates perfectly all together and will give you enough to work with to make a brag book, a mini album or even a full album. The elements in this kit is great for Weddings, Valentine's Day, Mother's Day, or Tributes. Any kind of situation you can think of.

I made a couple of layouts with this kit. I made one of the weeks of my 365 day project and a QP for my Sing a Song Challenge. February is the first month for me to do this challenge. I am taking it over from one of the Creative Team Members at The Scrapping Garden. The choosen song for February is "Have I Told You Lately That I Love You." Written by Van Morrison and sung by Rod Stewart. I think this kit goes perfectly with that and will make such a beautiful layout.

Here is my layout from 365 day project.

Right now I am working on a kit called Godiva which will be the featured kit for my New Challenge at the end of the month. It is called Sketch by Design. It will be the last Wednesday of the month and run til the last Tuesday of the following month. I am just finishing it up now and should have it completed before Friday of next week.
Okay, enough is enough right? Where is your freebie? Well here it is:
There you have it. A Friday Freebie, some personal info and some layouts as well as new kits. Make sure to check out my store at: http://www.scrappinggarden.com/shop/manufacturers.php?manufacturerid=21

Tuesday, January 13, 2009

Today has been a tough day. You know one of those days where nothing seems to work out the way you planned. When I wrote my newsletter on Sunday I promised to have two kits ready in the store. Well, that didnt happen. I tried to work on it today but gave up after having problems with getting a preview to stick. It kept disappearing even after I saved it!! Argh!!!

Well, tommorrow is a new day. I also wanted to get some advertising done today!! That always seems to go by the wayside also. I even got up early to get more done today. Of course I had laundry etc to get finished!! So much for advertising. I still would like to get it done before the week is over. I also wanted to get some designing done. I have had the itch for several days now and just havent gotten that far. I did get to work on the Member's Choice Kit Yesterday though. That was fun. It took all day but was fun!!

I have a lot to share since it has been so long since I posted last! Here are some recent layouts:

Here is the layout that I completed for "A" in the ABC Challenge at www.scrappinggarden.com
I used my portion of this January 2009 Mega Kit Just Imagine for this layout. You can find this kit here: http://www.scrappinggarden.com/shop/product.php?productid=17904&cat=0&page=1 It is on sale through the month of January for $3.49

Here is the preview of my portion of this kit:

Here is a preview of the "Memeber's Choice" Kit so far. Marsha Connell is the last designer and I think she is working on it tonight. There is still time to find a name for the kit so make your suggestions in the forum here : http://www.scrappinggarden.com/forum/showthread.php?p=45004#post45004

Here is the layout I did for Scraplift with Karen:
There is still time to participate if you would like. This challenge runs through the end of the month. You can find the link to that challenge here: http://www.scrappinggarden.com/forum/showthread.php?t=5225 I used my Indigo kit for this layout. You can find it here http://www.scrappinggarden.com/shop/product.php?productid=17910&cat=0&page=2 It is $3.00 until January 31st

Last but not least here is the layout I did for Snap a Masterpiece with Keiki
Photobucket There is still time to participate in this challenge also. You can find it here: http://www.scrappinggarden.com/forum/showthread.php?t=5232 In this layout I used my Boys, Boys, Boys Kits. These kits have everything you need to scrap the men in your lives young or old!! The colors are a neutral pallette with a hint of blues and greens. You can find those kits here: http://www.scrappinggarden.com/shop/manufacturers.php?manufacturerid=21

Okay, I feel better I got my advertising in. LOL I dont want you to forget to snag your freebie kit before the end of the month. At that time it will go into my store! Here is the post in the thread where my link is. http://www.scrappinggarden.com/forum/showthread.php?t=5224

Keep an eye out in my store for the add-on. It will be appearing sometime next month!

I am thinking positive - today is almost gone and tommorrow is a new day! Thanks for reading to the end. I hope to post more often but will at least once a week. Thanks for checking in!!

I have a few layouts to share with you and some great things happening at The Scrapping Garden.
I have taken on some CT Work also at TSG and so you will see some layouts here with other peoples kits. Just wanted to let you all know so you wont wonder what is going one.

Here is one I did with Pamela Dempsy's (PDD Designs) Sugarland Kit. You can find it here at The Scrapping Garden: http://www.scrappinggarden.com/shop/product.php?productid=17875&cat=0&page=1


This is a picture of my Great Niece Miracle that you have seen pictures of previously.

Also, If you havent heard about the 365 day project you are missing out on a big challenge that will help you to bring your photos up to the next level. It also helps to teach you to take your camera everywhere!! You take a picture a day and at the end of the week do a two page layout.
You can find more information here: http://www.scrappinggarden.com/forum/showthread.php?t=5239

Here is my first week layout that is still in progress. I got a tablet for Christmas and really want to get it out and use it for journaling for this project.


I used the Daily Download from December at The Scrapping Garden/www.scrappinggarden.com
Marsha Connell and I collabed on this kit and we I will be putting it into the store by this Friday.
we both have add-ons to these kits that are currently in our personal stores.

Another exciting thing happening at The Scrapping Garden. See the below ad for all the details!


Lots of great things coming up in this new year. I also am starting the ABC Challenge and am anxious to get started. I am doing a theme that will take some thinking to do. I might have to get some pics off of the web to help me with this one. It is sort of subjective in its thinking so we will see how I do on it. lol

Take care and have a wonderful evening. I will be posting again on Wednesday and hope to have a freebie or two for you.

Saturday, January 3, 2009

I have been very busy this week designing. I have gotten some of my mojo back. It seems to go in waves. So I take advantage when it is around so to speak!! lol

We took my son to the airport yesterday and he is on his way back to Kansas City. On the 5th of January he will be off to Iraq for one year. He is in the Navy but is on Collatoral Duty. He will be an advisor to the Iraq Military and will be well protected. The most dangerous part will be in the travel to and from the airport or any other assignments he might have. It also will depend on if he is at assigned to an Iraqi Base or an American Base. Please keep him in your prayers.

Here is a layout I completed this morning. My New Year's Resolution is to complete at least one layout a day if at all possible. I need to get so much scrapping done. When you are a designer it is hard to have the time to scrap too. So here you have made all of these awesome things and have nothing to show for it. I mean in ways of your own scrapping!! I also am trying to be more involoved in my home site. The Scrapping Garden. There are so many new things planned for this new year and there is a new excitement among all of the designers and Admin. It has been fun. Go check out what is going on and sign up for the Yahoo Group so you can keep well informed. http://www.scrappinggarden.com/ You will find a family of fellow scrappers and friends. I have been there for a year and a half and have not felt the need to go anywhere else. Of course there is a core group there that is really tight and those are the ones who keep everything running and come up with some great ideas.

Okay, I got off on a tangent again, what else is new huh? Okay here is the layout.


If you like this visit the forum at TSG here and snag the mini kit. It is for free until January 31st and then it will go into my store for $2.00 Here is the link: http://www.scrappinggarden.com/forum/showthread.php?t=5224 Scroll down until you see my kit: In My Heart and snag it while you can. Then go and check out my store here: http://www.scrappinggarden.com/shop/manufacturers.php?manufacturerid=21

Here is a preview of the kit offered at TSG:

I am also going to try to blog at least three times a week if not more. That way I can keep you up to date on everything.

Again if you would like to be added to my newsletter please feel free to leave me a comment with your info. I have to look at all of the comments before they are published to my blog so I will not publish any comment with your email info on it.

Take care and have a great day.

Happy New Year!!

I have made a few resolutions for 2009!! Nothing too big just a few goals. I want to be more involoved with The Scrapping Garden and get some more layouts finished. I have been paying a little more attention to my photography and have had a great time in the process. This month I am starting Cake Decorating Classes which I hope will prove to be fun. I am excited for the prospects of the new year! I am praying for improved health this year as last year was not too good of a year. I am now on a medication that I really pray will help me and not cause problems like the Lyrica did.

Anyways, enough of that. I am sure you are more interested in what I have planned for you my clients this year. I am starting a newsletter. If you are interested please leave me a comment with your email and I will be glad to add you. I can easily edit your information before I publish your comment or if you prefer not publish it at all. You let me know. I am glad to comply to your wishes.

I also want to start a free dialouge with you in reference to my kits and freebies. Is there something you like or do not like. Is there something you would like to see. Let me know by a comment or above in my little message box. I want to make my kits something that you will love and use over, over, and over again. Do you like kits that have been seperated into paper packs, element packs and add-ons, Or do you prefer it all together in one kit. This is where you get to tell me what you prefer.

I do have a new kit out. It is called Christmas Time. It has something for everyone. some plain patterned paper and some paper that has been hard distressed. Vintage and modern pieces. Enough for a mini album or a whole album.


You can find it here:http://www.scrappinggarden.com/shop/product.php?productid=17903&cat=0&page=1 It is $3.75 I know you will get a lot of use out of it.

I made a QP for you using my Christmas Time kit and a few pieces from my Victorian Christmas Add-on. I hope you enjoy it. And lets have an awesome new year! There is so much new thing coming up in the new year at the Scrapping Garden. make sure you come by and check out the challenge fourm and find out. I will be blogging more about them and posting about them as they go along.
Well, I am sure you want your freebie now. lol
First is a layout I made with them.
