Yes, another freebie!

I have posted quite a few freebies lately. I know when I get back to work on Tuesday after having the summer off that the freebies will be fewer, so I wanted to spoil you while I can. And, my shameless plug, I wanted to remind you to stop by KKD for the Labor Day Blowout. It's your last chance to save 75%!

Today's freebie is a set of cardboard frames wrapped with rubberbands. Enjoy! You can download them here.

Brand New Freebie!

Wow, Labor Day Weekend! Can you believe it? Summer sure goes by fast. The leaves are actually starting to turn here in our part of the country. The only part I'm really enjoying so far is the extra cozy blanket on the bed. The rest I wish I could postpone for a while longer.

Before I get to the freebie, I wanted to remind you to scroll down for other freebies, sale information, and info on my latest kit. Don't forget Labor Day is the last day to save 75% at KKD or Buy the Store.

Today's freebie is a cute, little set of Halloween/Fall Flair buttons. I used my felty halloween shapes from last fall and parts of my latest kit Pumpkin Patch.

Here's a preview...

Last Days to Save + New Word Art Freebie

Just wanted to remind everyone that my sales continue through Labor Day. You can save 75% storewide at KKD or buy the store for just $25.00. These are huge savings and you can stock up on lots and lots of goodies. You'll have enough supplies to scrap for months!

I've been trying to get some layouts done before I head back to work next week. I want to have as much done as possible too before the new baby arrives in December. I have no idea how that's going to impact everything. I'm so used to how things are now, especially now that our son is 3 and getting more independent everyday.

Yesterday I did three layouts. I had intended on working on backlogged baby layouts-3 years later! But instead I did one baby layout and 2 toddler layouts. I think I'm pretty happy with each. I aspire to create layouts like the ones I see in the gallery standouts at DST but somehow that hasn't happened yet. I guess I need a lot more practice.

When thinking about a freebie for today, my one layout immediately came to mind. I don't have any extra money to purchase kits at the moment, so I've been digging into my stash of existing kits to create the layouts I've been working on this week. When I got to the title work I realized my supply of alphas is probably where I'm lacking the most. So without the right alphabet, I decided to create my own word art title. I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. You can see it in the layout below.

Back to School Sale at KKD and a new freebie!

I can't believe that in two short weeks it will be time to head back to teaching. I'm not ready.

My big plan for the summer was to organize the house in preparation for baby #2 and decorate our newly remodeled new bedrooms and playroom. Unfortunately we're still in limbo on the decorating.

We sunk a huge amount of money to have two new bedrooms made and a new playroom. The project started a week or more before school was out in June. We were told it would be done early July. The first stumbling block was we needed a new bathroom when we found out the pipes were all bad to the one we were just going to paint. That added a big chunk of change to the project and slowed things down. Then our contractor did a sloppy job and I ended up with a two page single spaced list of things that needed to be fixed. He did fix them, but the job still isn't up to the standards I'm used to. It's hard when your father was a contractor for 30+ years. You know what things are supposed to look like.

When that was finally done, we were told we'd have the electrical certificate for the code inspector within two days. Three weeks later the electrical inspector finally shows and we don't pass inspection. We contact the contractor and he says it's not his fault b/c he subcontracted some of the electrical work out to another electrician. After going back and forth for nearly another two weeks, we're still without the certificate and can't move in to our newly remodeled rooms.

So, it's been a frustrating summer. I had wanted our 3 year old to be transitioned into his new room before I went back to work. Now we'll be lucky if the things are even moved in by then. Remodeling is always a headache, but this is just ridiculous and way too expensive. That first paycheck of the school year can't get here fast enough...four weeks and counting.

The good news is I'm still celebrating the start of a brand new school year with a 75% off sale at KKD. Everything is marked down 75% now through the end of the month. Stock up and save. Or take advantage of our buy the store sale for just $25.00. Visit KKD here.

I also have a great back to school freebie for you today. A Back to School themed paper pack. You can grab the freebie here.
