    Happy Birthday to me!

    Hi there everyone! Today (well, in 30 minutes) I hit the big 30! That's right it's my birthday once again! To celebrate I made you all a little goodie. Paper Holiday Pack!

    What I really did was expand on those I had made for Emma's class scrapbook and turned it into a full pack for you all to enjoy! I was frustrated when making the scrapbook that spanned a school year that I couldn't find element packs that did the same. As this was a book for preschoolers I figured the pieced together construction paper look would be fitting. I tried to make a variety of elements that would let a person scrap an entire year if they wanted without having to spend a fortune buying different packs. These will only be up for today, my birthday. Tomorrow they'll be going into the shop for the Hot Nuts sale at the Nuthouse! Enjoy!

    Sorry, these are no longer available.
    But I had a great birthday! Thanks for all the happy wishes!
    Find the Paper Holiday Pack in the Hot Nuts sale at 35% off Sun & Mon!

    *Don't forget to stop by DigiScrapAddicts for week two of their, So You Think You Can Design contest. there are over 50 kick butt kits there for you to grab this week!
    (Must be a forum member, but come on 50+ kits!!!!)

    Happy Scrapping!

    P.S. Emma's class scrapbook turned out beautifully, I love Shutterfly!
    And I love Wendyzine who made it so easy!

    (Seriously, she has templates, actions and ready made QP albums all for Shutterfly. Awesome!)
