I know that I haven't posted in a while, I've been busy trying to restore all of my scrapping supplies. I had them all on a separate drive which was totally lost. Some of them I had backed up, and some I just never got around to even though I kept telling myself that I would. So some of my scrapping supplies are completely gone. Lesson learned : ALWAYS back up those files, especially the favorites!!
I have some good news here as well. As some of you may remember, my Mom was diagnosed with breast cancer in March 2008. She has finished all of the chemotherapy and radiation treatments and is doing great. She was getting ready to retire at the time they found the cancer, but after being off work for so long taking the treatments, has decided she wants to go back to work. Go Mom!
More news, my oldest son is getting married on Valentine's day! I'm so happy for them, they have been seeing each other for a few years now. I'm getting a new daughter-in-law plus two more lovely grandchildren to spoil! Although I have to admit that I've already thought of them as this for a couple of years now. :) I'm working on a MEGA kit to scrap their wedding pictures with. So keep watching as I will be offering it to you as well a little later on. It will be full of LOVE , great for Valentine layouts or any layouts where you want to show the love. Which to me is all layouts!
Donna has shared some AWESOME layouts with me that she made using a couple of my kits. The first two were made using Just Call Me The Fireman . Her grandson is such a cutie in his Fireman costume that his uncle made for him.
This next layout of her beautiful granddaughter having fun in the sun, was made using Faded Memories parts 1 and 2.
Pop by Donna's gallery here at Scrapbook Flair to leave her some love on these adorable layouts or to see even more of her work.
If you missed Just Call Me The Fireman you can still find it here.
The first part of Faded Memories was available here on my blog, and contains two downloads. The second part contains four more downloads and was only available to the members of my Yahoo group - Kim's Scrappin' Freebies
Where I am the only one that sends email out to you, and all replies come back to me only, so that your email isn't overloaded with unwanted email. This group was set up for fans of my designs to get a notice when my blog is updated with new freebies. And occasionally the members get an extra freebie that is only shared with them. Previews to ALL of my designs and links to find them can be found here as well. If you would like to join this group you can by going here or see the link on the right in the sidebar. That way you will NEVER miss any of the freebies that I offer.
Want to see what was in part two?

Since I'm feeling generous and I haven't had much time to create anything new for you I decided to change my mind and give this to anyone that wants it. I hope that you can find a use for this. To the members of Kim's Scrappin' Freebies, I'm sorry I don't have something new and different for you today. Hopefully I will have soon.
I would also like to take a minute to say thank you to all who have sent me help with learning to use Photoshop CS2. I'm learning and now part of my kits are made using CS2 and PSP X2. Even though I now have CS2 I can't give up my old faithful friend PSP . LOL Now I'm going back to work on this kit for the Valentine Wedding. Have a great day and share a smile with someone.
