Back to School Time, New Kit & Freebie Time

I've been so busy that it wasn't until today that I realized it had been awhile since I posted on my blog. Yikes! I've been working on several new kits and a new venture for the future but I'll reveal that when I get closer to a launch date.

Can you believe that in a couple of weeks the kiddies will be headed back-to-school! Where did the summer go and why does it always have to go by so fast? Makes me sad. In order to get ready for those back-to-school photos, I've created 3 new kits with a school theme. The first is full kit titled, "School is Cool" and it's geared more toward primary school aged layouts but there are a lot of elements that could be used for older kids as well. I had a lot of fun with this kit and I created my own template for both the school house and school bus elements and I think they turned out pretty good if I do say so myself. Giving myself a pat on the back here. This kit also comes with a full alpha with both upper and lower case letters, numbers and symbols. This is my first alpha design and it was created to resemble chalk on a chalkboard. I wanted to give you a way to write your own message on the chalkboard.

I also designed another set of Lil Thoughts with this one geared toward a school theme and colors to coordinate with "School is Cool." This time I also included blank elements so that you can create your own messages. And one more. This is a wordart pack designed to resemble a stamp with grades 1st - 12th and Freshman, Sophomore, Junior and Senior designations. They can be used as is or you can add your own creative touches.

I was a little disappointed that more people didn't submit a layout using the "Mugging for the Camera" wordart piece from a couple of weeks ago so I decided to give everyone that participated a coupon to my store for their efforts. So Lois and Judy, you can expect an email from me with a coupon code. I created a wordart freebie to coordinate with the School is Cool kit and I'm offering it to you as tonight's freebie. I will have another coordinating piece this weekend. If you decide to download this freebie, please take the time to leave a comment. I read them all and I appreciate the effort involved as I hope you do when you download one of my freebies.
