Summer Doldrums

Well, it's hit.  The Summer Doldrums.  The time of the summer where the heat has affected my brain and I can no longer think.  Suddenly I'm not inspired by anything and I just stare at my screen hoping that a page puts itself together.  Strangely enough it hasn't happened yet.  Maybe one of these sales will get me creating again!

Digi-Deborah understands my pain and, in a move to help me grow my stash, she has a great sale on!  All of her kits are just $2!!  Check it out!

In fact the whole scrap takeout team seems to know what I'm going through!  They've got this great Build Your Own Carry Out happening right now!  Several of the designers have all released kits based on the same colour scheme so you can pick and choose what you like and it will all match!

Here are some of the things you can get.  I haven't done my shopping yet...but I love the selection!

Fire and Ice Papers by Dani Moy Designs

Retro Baby Papers by A+ Designs

Fairytale Elements by FranB Designs

Last but certainly not least Digi-Deborah Designs is participating in another great Blog Train this month!  Head over to her blog to pickup this great mini!!

Well that's it for me.  Hopefully by next week I'll have snapped out of this with the help of some of these great sales!  See you then!

Problems with Store Specific Galleries

Don't get me wrong, I understand the desire for store specific galleries.  If you are making money from the store you don't want to advertise for other stores....but here's the thing.  Sometimes when I'm creating a LO I can't find the right kit at my usual store, and this means I can't put the page in my gallery!  So now I've got a page I love but I don't know where to show it off!

So here's the situation tonight.  Becky cracked me up earlier today and I just had to create a page about it.  I found this great picture that spoke to me and played with an extraction and then blurred the rest to create a pretty cool start.  But then I had to figure out what to use for the rest of the page.  I wandered the store for a while but nothing worked, so I looked through my stash and found a kit that worked perfectly that I received through the Digi Files a few months back...

I'd never had the chance to use the kit before, but it was perfect for my page....check it out:

But now I can't post it in m usual gallery, and the store that carries the kit is one that I haven't been a part of so I feel weird signing up just to show off (although I might do that anyways).  I know there are some forums/galleries that allow all stores, but I haven't been all that active in them and I do this for the community more than anything else....I just want to show it off to my friends!  So I put it on FB and I rant about it on here.

Oh wait.....THAT's what a blog is for!!!  I get it now!!

Did I Mention a Freebie?

Did you catch that?  The hint of a freebie?  Well guess it is!

Digi-Deborah is participating in a great blog train this month entitled Clown Week

Isn't that awesome?  I love the fun colours and theme.  You have to go grab that and take a look at the rest of the train, but before you do that....grab this freebie I made with Digi-Deborah's kit!

How is that for the third post in a week?  Enjoy the freebie and have a clownishly good week!
