Another freebie

I can't believe how productive I have been lately. Lots of layouts, my outback kit almost finished and ready to roll and then today i sat down and started playing with some new papers, before I knew it i was making the elements to go with them! The elements aren't complete yet, but the papers are, so I thought I could start putting up the papers for you to download while I finished them off.
Now this kit is inspired by old fashioned baby stuff, as in dating back to when i was a baby. A mix of soft colours with lots of ginghams. I adore gingham and if i knew how to make a seersucker texture I would do that. I had lots of cute little dresses that looked like this and in fact so did my daughters! So here it is.. Classic Baby 25 papers. (with elements to come!)

I had so much fun making these! And i am having a great time with the elements! So today I can offer you the first installment. I will pop the rest of them up over the next few days. (please be patient i am not too good at blogging daily though). I would love some feedback. This is my first ever design that i have shared. So tell me what you think!!! Here is the link I have just realised that I forgot to include TOU with the file. But you know the deal right? Don't sell it, dont share it, and don't do anything bad with it. The TOUs will be in with the next installment.
And of course with National Scrapbooking Day coming up next month we are all probably getting our visa cards polished and our paypal accounts preloaded for the sales!!! There is always so much going on, with bargains galore and competitions and chats and challenges! This will be the first NSD for Scrapthatidea, but they are right into it too so here is the coupon for the NSD specials.
I know.. you kind of want to get over there now and start putting stuff in your cart ready for the sale.... in fact... why don't you? With 50% off you can't lose.
So what is happening in my life other than spending large amounts glued to my computer being creative?.. actually speaking of which I must show you this layout I made. The theme was The Artist in Me and I was asked to do it for my new Creative Team which I have just joined over at Digital Paper Hearts. Another cute little store with lots in it, if you are anything like me you will have a wonderful time shopping there. (Am i a bad influence?)

This layout was made with one of Flergs newest kits Blaze. I had to buy it coz it had so much gorgeous Red and I Love Red!!! Besides which her kits are always so cool and i love her styles and glitters and... did you get the grab bag? It was truly excellent! Moving on...
This is my first CT layout for DPH using a kit by Heather Hill called for the love of ladybugs.

What do you think? I thought it was pretty cute. That little girl is 26 now!
I have been trying to fit some reading in too, in case you hadn't noticed I do like to read. I have been having a bit of a run of JD Robb lately which is actually Norah Roberts writing under a different name. The JD Robb books are all murder mysteries and are a great read. She creates great characters who are interesting and quirky. I have to admit that the yesterday I did in fact read a Johanna Lindsay book. Have you read any of her's? I guess they are called Romance. Most of them are historical but the one i read yesterday called Warrior's Woman was sci fi romance if you can get your head round that one. They are great no brainers and sometimes I really enjoy a relaxing story that has no complexities whatsoever!
I am having a pretty lazy week with not much on the work front, it is not really like me at all. However I guess at some point my agency will ring and I will be putting on my uniform and heading out to work.
So hopefully I will be back in the next day or so with installment number two of Classic Baby! enjoy.
