I promised you lots more fun, so here it comes! Not one but TWO freebies tonight!

Sweet MelindaH has made another beautiful calendar for you this month! She's used the Autumn Bliss Paper Pack and Silk Leaves! (Available at Gotta Pixel and Digitals!)
Sorry, this calendar is no longer available for free download.

This October marks Digitals' 4th anniversary, so it's time for a Big Birthday Bash! That means in addition to all the other fun, my whole Digitals store is 30% off!

This week I've got a beautiful hybrid album to share with you! This album was designed with my A Few of My Favorite Things page kit (available at Digitals and Gotta Pixel) by the talented Christie of Digital Daisy Designs!
Sorry, but this gift is no longer available. Don't worry though! The full A Few of My Favorite Things Bracket Album will be available for sale in my stores once the Digitals Blog Train reaches its end.

Don't miss all the other goodies offered by the Birthday Bash Blog Train! Be sure to stop by every day so you don't miss anything! Blog Train downloads will only be available for 24 hours!

Have you been Stepping Through September? I was so impressed with how many people were participating and with variety of layouts created! This is the layout I made while playing along--I added the title after the last step. :)

This week I whipped up this pretty new hybrid album! The Calico Cutie Luggage Tag Album perfectly fits the Basic Grey Luggage Tag chipboard album, and I'm hoping to print it out and assemble it this week! Pick it up at Digitals or Gotta Pixel and make one for yourself too!
I started this post early today, but now the day's nearly over! I'll be randomly choosing a commenter who takes the time to look through my Gotta Pixel store and posts back here with a link to your very favorite kit by tomorrow (Monday) morning the kit of their choice! I'll send everyone who posts their favorite a free quickpage (pictured in previous posts) so everyone wins!

I can't believe September is already nearing it's end! I'll be stepping out of the Gotta Pixel Spotlight, but the fun here will still continue! October 1st marks Digitals 4th birthday and there is going to be a huge celebration! Part of the Digitals fun is another Blog Train, and I will be participating, so be sure and visit this blog daily!!! You don't want to miss BB4!!! Catch the fun countdown ticker to the right!

Last week I stumbled upon a new online fabric shop, Lanie Jane. The owner is currently asking for people to check the store out and give suggestions on her blog (and she's going to give 1 commenter a really cute purse she sewed) so I took a look around. Imagine my delight when I saw she had the full set of Dandelion Girl charm squares! I've been wanting them for ages (ever since I saw them at here at the Fresh Figs blog back in April) but never found any locally and the online shops I knew of were all sold out when I went looking. This was late Thursday afternoon and I quickly placed my order. They were in the mailbox today!! Tuesday!!! I ripped the package open in the van in front of the mailboxes and inside were my squares all wrapped up in this cute polka dot tissue with a handwritten note from Jane herself! Little ones won't confirm or deny, but I think I actually squealed. :) No idea what I'm going to make with this yet, but I'm so excited!

Stay tuned! I'm working on an album today and starting on a new kit, but I promise I'll post the contest I've been teasing you about tomorrow. :)

Don't forget the product retirement sale going on now at Gotta Pixel (page 1 and page 2)! My whole Gotta Pixel store is at least 25% off!

Saturday, September 20, 2008

So much going on here! Now in stores, A Few of My Favorite Things Quickpage Set! Pick it up at Gotta Pixel or Digitals! My sweet friend and CT member MelindaH designed these beautiful pages.

And the big news I was telling you about! It's time to clean house at my Gotta Pixel store, so I've decided to retire a few products. Pick them up now at super low prices before retire September 30th! Click here for page 1 and page 2 of my retiring items!

Don't forget to pick up the new issue (late September) of the Digitals newsletter! Inside you'll find a link to download this free quickpage from me as well as lots more free gifts from other designers!
Come visit me again soon--I'll be posting about that fun new contest!

Time just keeps getting away from me! There are so many scrapping things I want to do every day and lately it's good if I can get a single thing finished.

Have you been having fun Stepping through September? So many people signed up! I want to go through the contest gallery and make sure to comment on everyone 1st assignment--I'll do it, really I will, it just may take me another few days. :) In the meanwhile, get busy with assignment #2!
I am even playing along! Here's what I submitted for assignment #1. It was so hard for me! The thing I love about digital scrabooking is that I can resize and switch pieces so easily, but not with this challenge!

Don't forget, all month long my entire Gotta Pixel store is 25% off!


And, when you purchase anything from my or Cherie's store, you'll get this month's mega kit FREE!
I bought some beautiful fabric a few days ago and I really want to get sewing with it! I'm going to make some big shopping totes. Isn't this fabric gorgeous?! It's Shangri La by Three Sisters, Moda. I haven't decided yet--I may make 1 with the large print and 1 with the medium print or make 2 alike with the large print on the outside and the medium as the lining. I'll be using a brown small print for the handles. I want to have the all sewn to take with me to the quilt show this weekend!


And speaking of fabric, one of these days I'll get my little guy's quilt started! I have several fabrics from the collection above for it--love that olive-y green, dusty blue and brown! And when I do get sewing (or at least cutting!) you'll get some peeks!

A new fun event will be starting at Gotta Pixel later today, so I'll link you up to it tonight or tomorrow. I have a great gift to share with you all too, and hopefully I'll make up a preview and get it uploaded today so I can share with you all! So come visit again soon!
