A fellow member at Scrapbook Flair said she had a very difficult time finding elements in the lime green color for Non Hodgkins Lymphoma. I was humbled that she asked if I could put together some things for her. This is a mini kit with 29 elements and 10 papers. I hope she likes it. Of course it is free.
This is a page I made with my new kit called Flower Power. I will try to post a couple of free Quick Pages. The Flower Power kit is free and available in 4 downloads. Previews and links are below this post.

I am working on a new kit with some fun cardboard elements. Quite a while back I found a free kit that had some of this same type of element and I loved them in the scrap above, so I decided to try my hand at making my own. I hope to have this kit done in a 7-10 days so check back soon!
The photo is my own, taken several years ago standing on Hoover Dam and looking up to Lake Mead. The cardboard elements are from Summer Love (available at Digidesign Resort), the background and other elements came from Dallien, Cali Design and Flower Scraps.
My dear friend, Brenda, aka Ditz Bitz, made this page with my new kit. Now keep in mind that the hunky dude is not included in the kit...LOL
Ditz Bitz participates in a couple different blog trains and has free kits on her site. She also has really great gothic, steampunk and other theme kits for purchase as well. Here is the link to her site: http://ditzbitz.weebly.com/
Thanks again, Brenda, for making such a great page with my kit!!!
Here is my first scrapbook kit, I have titled it Tropicana. I have lots of cannas in my garden and my favorite is a species called Tropicana. Many of the flowers and leaves in this kit are from my own pictures of my garden. I am offering this kit for free as my way of giving back to the scrapbooking community. There are 14 papers, 46 elements and 3 clusters included in this kit. I love the bright colors and am so glad I was able to get this completed in time for your spring and summer scraps. I hope everyone enjoys this kit and that you will follow my blog as I hope to bring you more free kits. My goal is to post at least 1 free kit a month. This kit is for Personal Use Only.
This kit has 3 downloads; one link for the papers and 2 links for the elements.

My friend, Brenda, aka Ditz Bitz has a new kit called "Vintage Journal"; it is filled with really great journaling tag, one of which I have used for the poem on this page. The background and other elements on this page are from First Kiss by Ditz Bitz, and the fairy image is from the web. The poem is by me.
Another CT page for the kit "Vintage Kitty 2" by Ditz Bitz. And more pics of my son, Dirk and his fiancee, Lyndsey. Photos courtesy of Apple of My Eye Photography, Stillwater, Oklahoma. This is a really versatile kit, just love the vintage feel and all the great elements!!
This is a CT page I made for the new kit by Ditz Bitz called Vintage Kitty 2. This is a couple more pictures of my son, Dirk and his fiancee, Lyndsey. Photos courtesy of Apple of My Eye Photography, Stillwater, Oklahoma.
Here are my little furr-babies. Bubba J. at the top and Honey at the bottom. And, yes, if they could really talk I'm sure they would always swear that the other brown dog did it. Photos are my own, the kit for this page is called Couleurs Evasion by Nanly Designs. I bought the kit at Scrap Bird.
At Scrapbook Flair there are always lots of different challenges going on. These two pages were done for a challenge where you were to take your own face and morph it onto another image for Halloween. It takes a bit of time and blending to get it done, but I have lots of fun doing these. The 2nd image above with me as Marie Antionette actually won 1st place in the challenge.
I simply love the poses the photographer came up with! I mentioned before that she took about 200 photos and I am trying to scrap every single one of the photos for them. Mostly I am using multiple pics per page, but some of my most favorites, like this one, I am using just 1 per page. I was inspired by a CT page for another kit I saw at Scrap Bird, but for this page I used Parfume d'Automne by Nanly Designs. Word art is my own. Photo courtesy of Apple of My Eye Photography, Stillwater, Oklahoma.
As you can tell, my favorite style of scraping is simply to take the photo and create a cluster of elements to compliment it. A couple more of Dirk and Lyndsey's engagement photos. The kit used here is Coleurs Evasion by Nanly Designs, purchased at Scrap Bird. Photos courtesy of Apple of My Eye Photography, Stillwater, Oklahoma.
I love the colors on this!!! I've played a bit with photo masks and used one here. For this page I used a kit called Changing Seasons by Azure Scraps, purchased at Scrap Bird. I touched up the photo a bit to bring out the yellow tones. A bit of shadowing used for depth. Photo courtesy of Apple of My Eye Photography, Stillwater, Oklahoma.
Another series of photos. For these the photographer was up on a bridge and Dirk and Lyndsey climbed down to the creek below with driftwood laying on the banks. Again, I love the candid shots the photographer took of them getting into position. For this page I used a kit by Nanly Designs called C'est la Saison, purchased at Scrap Bird. Some intensifying of the colors on the photos and spotlight added, as well as shadowing for depth. Photos courtesy of Apple of My Eye Photography, Stillwater, Oklahoma.
A few more of the engagement photos, love again that I could zoom in on their hands with Lyndsey's engagement ring! Kit used is Orangerine by Nanly Designs available at Scrap Bird. Photos courtesy of Apple of My Eye Photography, Stillwater, Oklahoma. I did some coloring and spotlighting on the photos and cut strips from the background that I used for added elements; shadowing added for some dimension.
A couple more of the engagement photos taken at the little playhouse. This page made with a kit called Colleur Vanille by Nanly Designs, bought at Scrap Bird. Photos courtesy of Apple of My Eye Photography, Stillwater, Oklahoma
Another series of Dirk and Lyndsey's engagement photos. This page made from Nanly Designs' kit called You and Me. Blended one photo onto a piece of one of the backgrounds. Shadowing added for dimension.
This page made from a kit by Nanly Designs, unfortunately I didn't write down which one and I have bought so many of her kits at Scrap Bird! I really do like her kits!!! Anyway, more of the engagement photos, this series is at a little playhouse and the name above the porch says "The Darlings"...very cute!!! Photos courtesy of Apple of My Eye Photography, Stillwater, Oklahoma.
Hey, guess what...more engagement photos! LOL For this page I used various kits by Fantasy Moments. If you haven't already found this website, you really need to check it out!!! Loads and loads of free kits and posers. The words, Live, Love, Laugh are my own placed on the tags. A little shadowing added for depth and a little spotlighting on the photos.
A few more from the pose where they are laying on the grass cheek to cheek. I love that one of the photos showed Lyndsey's engagement ring and that I could zoom in and capture it. I used Reve d'Amour kit by Nanly Designs purchased at Scrap Bird for this page. Photos courtesy of Apple of My Eye Photography, Stillwater, Oklahoma
More of the engagement photos courtesy of Apple of My Eye Photography, Stillwater, Oklahoma. This page is made from a kit I bought at Scrap Bird called Reve d'Amour by Nanly Designs. The photographer did a series of pictures of Dirk and Lyndsey laying on the grass, cheek to cheek, and gently cupping the other's face. Just a precious pose!
In early October of 2011 a small circus came to our little town. This is my granddaughter, Haley, getting her face painted by one of the clowns. I created the word in Photoshop from the picture. The background and all elements are from various free kits by Digicats.
This page I made with a kit called Ombre et Lumiere by MiMi Concept. The elf image I got from the web it is by HDJart. I put this page together in Nova Photo Explosion then opened it in Photoshop and applied some different effects, mainly the plastic effect. I wish I had kept better notes of what I did because I love this leathery look and have tried to duplicate it and can't get it the same. Anyway, it was created for a challenge at Scrapbook Flair.
This page I made with a kit I bought at Scrap Bird. It is by Nanly Designs called "My Honey". The strips and blocks I cut from various backgrounds in this kit and did some shadowing to the layers to give it depth. I entered this in a challenge at Scrapbook Flair; it won 3rd place and was selected as the site's Scrapbook of the Week. Of course, a few more of Dirk and Lynsdey's engagement photos, courtesy of Apple of My Eye Photography, Stillwater, Oklahoma.
Sometimes you see an image that just won't leave your heart; this is just that kind of an image. I happened upon this photo on the web and had to scrap it! The kit I used is by Jaelop and is called Praise the Lord. I've had this kit for a long time and got it from her blog as a free kit. The postage stamp mats I created with my Nova Photo Explosion program, everything else is from the kit with shadowing added for depth.
This page made with my friend, Ditz Bitz's new kit called With Love. I extracted Dirk and Lyndsey for them to stand on the end of the blocks. Photos courtesy of Apple of My Eye Photography in Stillwater, Oklahoma
Another page made entirely from my friend, Ditz Bitz's Vintage Valentine kit, available on her blog. Again, my son, Dirk and his fiance, Lyndsey; photos courtesy of Apple of My Eye Photography in Stillwater, Oklahoma. This photographer took about 200 photos and caught some really cute candid shots as well as beautiful posed shots. I love the expression on Dirk's face in the upper left photo.

This page is made from a kit by my friend, Ditz Bitz, available on her blog. I cut the same background to layer behind the photo to give it some depth. The tag says "If love is not madness it is not love", thus the title Love is Madness
