Busy Week ... time for another FREEBIE FRAME CLUSTER!

I've been trying to get this finished and uploaded most of the week!  It's been a busy one, and each day is leading to SPRING!  I can't wait for the flowers to start sprouting ... until then, I'm content with these flowers from the Naturally Spring collection I'm almost finished with.  These are all for personal use only, please.  Enjoy!

Another Freebie Frame Cluster from Naturally Spring

I've been having a great time making these photos into a scrapbooking kit!  I'll share the whole kit when I have it done, but for now here's another sample of some of the things in it.  PLEASE DO let me know what you think of it - I've never done one before and would honestly appreciate any constructive advice, suggestions for colors, etc. 

On this sample, I used one of the papers I made from some lilac photos blended with a wooden deck floor, and thought it would be great for a wedding photo background . . .

And here's the freebie for you - click on photo for download link

New Freebie - Naturally Spring Frame Cluster

I've been toying with the idea of putting together a kit with a Spring theme from some of the pictures I've taken of flowers out here on the farm.  What do you think?  "Naturally Spring" seems a natural name for the collection ... I love the outdoors, so using all "natural" elements seems fitting.  Here's a sample frame cluster for you to try out - let me know what you think, and if there's any interest I'll work on completing a kit.  Enjoy!
I went for something a little more boyish and used a barn board background with our little kitty looking on ...

I've Seen the Light!

I was just sitting here in the living room at my desk minding my own business working on the computer when I gradually noticed it getting brighter and brighter inside the room.  With a smile blooming on my face I turned slowly to witness what I thought would be SUNSHINE making its way through the window ... but instead, what I mistook for the warming light of the sun was THIS!!!! 

So, instead of crying and beating my fists against the window and screaming "WHY, WHY, WHY MORE SNOW ! ! !"  I took the picture and am whining about it here.  It would be really pretty if it was NOVEMBER! 

Hope your day has SUNSHINE-induced brightness  :)
