The freebie I have for you today I made with Michelle's new
kit called Ruffin It! I love the versatility of this kit...it can be used
for camping, fishing, hiking trips...basically almost anything you
love to do outdoors. Here's a preview of it for you:

I  made you 3 flairs and 3 flair frames using some of the adorable
items in this kit. They are all full size and ready to add to your
favorite 'outdoorsy' layouts!

A Freebie From SugarButt Designs Templates! *UPDATED*

Some of you had problems opening up the papers after unzipping the file. 
I've removed the link that was there and replaced it with a new one for you. 
It's a completely new zip file.
I re-zipped the original folder and re-upped the whole thing!
So sorry you had problems with it and please let me know if the new 
download is working correctly for you now. Thanks! ~Hugs~ Kathie

Hi everyone! I hope those of you that celebrate the 4th of July 
had a wonderful day and took lots of pics.......
because I've made you a kit using only SugarButt Designs
templates along with my own imagination and color palette!
It's perfect for scrapping your 4th celebration and it's Free!

JJ of SugarButt Designs has been so generous in sharing her
fabulous templates with us that I thought it would be a nice
way to thank her and bring you a fun kit using a sampling of
her Templates so you can see what can be done with them!
She has whole themes of bundled templates in several stores, 
so if you need some Very High Quality Templates, 
be sure to check her blog to find out which stores she has them in. 
recently purchased a Christmas bundle and am thrilled with it!

Here's the preview of the kit...just click on the image to
download it. Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your new kit!

**Thank You JJ** for so kindly sharing your talent 
and creations with us...I always look forward to 
seeing what you come up with next!**
