Have I got a DEAL for you, and FREEBIES

Wow! Where do I start without becoming a chatter-box? lol I guess just get to it...huh?

First, let me say, I just found a MISTAKE in my post earlier today...I had the link for the DAY AT THE BEACH QP on the CHERRY BEAR QP...I am so sorry. It is now fixed...and I apologize if anyone got the same QP twice. My mistake. I just knew it was going too smooth...that something had to be wrong...and I was right! lol Now...go get those QP's...and say "hey" while you are here!

Ok...here's the deal... I have just finished a NEW kit...yep...been busy. I fell into this one quiet by accident...then one thing lead to another...and Waa-Laa...a New kit. I did a Challenge for DigiByDesign...July Color Challenge..and this is what I came up with.

This is a photo of Scott and Kathy's little girl (princess), Sydney. Isn't she adorable? I made 3-LO's using her photos...you will see them in a minute. These are friends of my youngest son (Travis) and his wife (Tiffany). I know Scott...but from years ago...when the kids were younger. lol
FYI, this is created from my NEWEST kit...Day At The BEACH...more on that in a minute, too. So much to share here! lol
I started with the color swatch from DigiByDesign's color challenge...and kept creating my paper, elements, tag, ricrac (tut by Steph) and more...before I knew it...I had a mini kit...so that was my inspiration. lol

OK...Next... again...I found a FREE 6-day download at CanDesigns (Candee at MermaidsHaven)
This kit is called ...

and I decided by the 2nd download that I wanted to do yet another LO with Sydney in it...and this is what I did...Using this kit...

Again, is this not an adorable baby? I just love Candee's kit...and that was ONLY part2 of this kit! I made a few extra pieces from her kit...the Doodle tag...I made into a photo frame... the border frame, I made from one of her papers...and added a couple of Effects to it..I used one of her flower doodles and made a ribbon like element...and again...one of her papers to create the TAG at the bottom. You can do that too! lol Anyway...I also turned this into a QP and asked Candee if she would like to give it away on her blog...if not, I would give it away here. WELL...she is offering it on her blog!! I am so HONORED!! TY Candee! She is just the sweetest lady. See the QP below with the link for the download... PS...Be sure to tell her, "Candie sent y'a"...lol

And yes...I did ONE more LO of this precious little girl...even her MOMMY and DADDY have not seen these yet. LOL But Kathy did text message Tiffany giving me permission to post them...

I used a BEAUTIFUL kit by Michelle McCoy of CRAFTY SCRAPS to make this nest cute LO.
TY Michelle for this BEAUTIFUL KIT! I just fell in love with the cherries and the little bear stamp when I saw this one!

This kit's called,
CHERRY BEAR and you can get it at Crafty Scraps

When I saw this kit...I HAD the perfect PHOTO in mind for it...you guessed it... Sydney...wait until you see this LO!
Tiffany had this fantastic idea to do this photo in Black n White for her photo project, and she only wanted to colorize the Tu-tu...but for this particular layout I decided I needed to re-color the background a bit...lol Don't you agree?

HAPPY BIRTHDAY SYDNEY!!

Isn't this just too cute?
FYI, Tiffany made several of these Tu-tu's just for these photos. They turned out really great, don't you think? Great job Tiff! See, Tiff, you CAN sew! LOL
FYI...Tiff takes AWESOME photos...so if you want to HIRE her...she's reasonable...lol.... Just kidding...then again??? Who knows...maybe one day, she will do it professionally. lol

Now..what you all have been waiting for... [I think :-) ]
Yes...I am giving these QP's away...so you can start snagging here...

and last...but not finished...lol
the password for this one is.... scraps


Happy downloading...and don't forget.....to comment!!! lol [I need to know HOW AM I DO'N]..lol

Now...here's the last item...[one I hope you all have been waiting for]...but there's a catch...yep...I truly would like to know what you all think about my designs. I know when you download my freebies you like them, or you wouldn't bother, right? And as for thanks...that is enough for me.
However, I would like to know what you think about my kits...would you snag/buy my kits if I was to became a designer of kits? I am not selling any kits at this time...but you never know. I have had a couple of offers...and I am considering it...but I'm just not sure of myself in that area...so help me out here. I promise...I will always have freebies for you, even if I do decide to sell. :-)
So...here's the deal...if you want my DAY AT THE BEACH kit...you will need to comment in my COMMENTS section below this post...or on my SHOUT box [located to the right on my blog]...I will need to have a total of 50 (+) comments on this kit and/or QP before the kit will be offered as a freebie.
So...how bad do you want this kit? GO POST!! :-)

I think imy kit turned out really cute..and yo
u never know, there just might even be a PART2 to this on...only because I am a NAUTICAL NUT! LOL

You saw the LO I made using this kit... so now here's the kit preview for you to see...
DAY AT THE BEACH by CMann


KIT CONTENTS:
7-papers, 16-elements, 2-stitches, 2-ribbons, 1-photo frame, 1- background border frame and 1-journaling block

By the way... I want to give a SPECIAL THANKS to two very special ladies whom, without, I could 't have created these lovely papers. Yes... I used Cyndi (Wetfish Scraps) and Kim (Kim's Scrapping) overlays to created my papers. I really appreciate them letting me use their Overlays...even if Cindi's were "Commercial Use" Overlay (s), I still like to recognize them for their hard work. I used Kim's Bubble OVERLAY and several of Cyndi's OVERLAYS.
TY both so much! You guys really must visit these ladies blogs...they have lots to offer...not just freebies! lol

Ok...I think that about covers it...so... get to Snag'n and don't forget...if you want my newest kit... YOU NEED TO... leave me a "HOW AM I DO'N" comment!

This is such a great kit. I would love to have it for some pictures I just took of my kids at the beach. You are very talented, so if you are having fun, you should really consider starting a store or designing for your needs and sharing with those of us less talented.
