Freebies, Halloween Spooktacular Add-ON And New Blog Announcement

Hi everyone! I hope you're doing well. I want to let you know that I have a new
blog where you can find all my current freebies...(I'll fill you in on this in a minute!)

As many of you know, Michelle has been very sick again and is dealing with new
health issues. Please continue to keep her in your prayers. A this time, we don't
know if she will be able to continue with her Crafty Scraps blog, store and forum.
I'll post here and let you know what will happen next as soon as I know. She
appreciates each and every one of you that have been so active in her forum over
the years and made the HFD the hit that it's become. For now, those are on hold too.

All the freebies here have active download links, so please feel free to snag
anything you haven't gotten yet and let me know if you find any not working
so I can get you a new link.

OK, now for the new blog info. I absolutely Love Digi-scrapping and designing
and will be continuing with it on my new blog, which you can find here:


The Halloween Spooktacular kit that I posted on Michelle's forum, you can now
find it on the new blog along with an Add-On Kit that has 25 new elements and
8 new backgrounds (4 Glitter and 4 Patterned) for you. I hope you enjoy it.

Will see you on the new blog soon! ((Hugs)) Kathie
