August Kit and Freebies

Life always throws you for a loop. I had a terrible June filled with pain capped off with a hospital stay and a spinal injection. We hoped it would work. Sadly it did not. So I spent all of July and most of August in extreme pain and quickly falling behind in my CT duties. Hard to be creative when you are in pain. I do apologize for falling behind. Yes, I know health comes first but I hate to break promises.

August is the third kit released this month by Winsor Digi Designs and you have a few more days to catch it on sale for 80% off or 50 cents. What a deal. As you know by now I love a good deal and I was a loyal customer before joining this CT team. August contains 47 elements, 10 papers, 1 alphabet and 2 12x12 quick pages.

Pray For Haley Collab

For most of us, childhood days are seen as a carefree and joyous time. It's time to run, play, and hang out with friend - to grow up and find our place in the world. Unfortunately, not every child is given the same opportunities. Pray for Haley is collaboration kit made by some of the finest artists in the digital scrap-booking community to help a young girl in need. Haley was recently diagnosed with bone cancer and is missing the current school year because of her treatments. Her strong will and determination has allowed her to keep up with her school work and she looks forward to the day she can return to the classroom and her friends. The profits from Pray for Haley will be given to this courageous girl and her family to help with mounting medical costs. When the time comes to scrap all the joyous moments in the young person in your life this kit will offer you a multitude of options for beautiful scrap book pages as well as help a young girl in need.

We have split this kit up as separate pieces if you feel like you can only donate a little bit, as a Big Bundle, and for the greatest savings, we also have a Mega Bundle option to get everything.  Please click on slideshow below to go to the store and help this little girl in need.
