Lots of Information

Morning folks,

Hope everyone is enjoying their holidays! The kids and I have enjoyed ours so far. We actually get an extra holiday in our family on the 1st. My oldest son was the New Years Baby here in Logan 25 years Hard to believe that I have been a 'MOM' now for 25 years!

Here is a layout I made using my "Ringing in the New Year" kit and some pictures that the local newspaper took of my New Year's

My doctor, Dr. Pimpa, is the one in the white jacket. She's one of few doctors still in our area after all these years and she's still delivering babies.

So while you all eat your cabbage and black eyed peas....we will be having birthday cake!!!!! My son's favorite is a cake I make called "Pig Pickin'".

I awoke at 3am this morning to finish up today's kit for you guys. Shortly after I received an email from a very nice gentleman letting me know that my brand new "Ringing in the New Year" kit is being freely shared in the pirate sharing groups. I have since spent the last few hours having the links removed, sending in DMCA complaints to Yahoogroups and Googlegroups, and sending cease and desist notices to the people that were sharing the kit. Not exactly the way I wanted to spend the morning and I must seem like one big Scrooge to everyone about now.

Morning folks,

Many of the designers have now posted their portion to their blogs at very reasonable prices. So if you like my part, be sure to go check out theirs also. (You might even find a portion of it as a freebie!)

Here is my portion of the kit again. You can now purchase it in most of my stores. Some stores have the scrapper size and some have the tagger size. (Please check in the stores for which size is available before you purchase or go to my blog store where both sizes are available.)

And here is the preview of the other parts to this collab kit.

I don't guarantee that everyone has posted theirs, but the other designers participating were:

Candys Treats
The Fanzy Designz
