A new kit and a sale

We are having a sale at Groovy Scraps. I am offering 40% off of everything in my store. This sale will only last a week.

I know I haven't been super active lately on my blog, but I do have a new kit finally. It is called Holiday Cheer. It is available here in my store at Groovy Scraps. Below is a preview. I hope I am not too late for your holiday photos. I have tons of photos I need to scrap so I'm sure I'm not the only one.

I have a few brag book pages to give you in honor of my new kit. I hope you can use these cute brag book pages for your Holiday photos. Please do not share my links. Send them to my blog instead.

Crew's Journey

I stumbled across a blog that has really touched my heart. This is a blog about a tiny little baby named Crew. He was a twin born at 28 weeks. His twin brother passed away prior to birth due to twin to twin transfusion syndrome. Crew is fighting for his life now. He is progressing and doing really well for such a tiny little guy. I read this blog every day and I have added Crew to my prayers each day. You can read about him here. His mom is a digital scrapbooking designer also. The designers she sells with have created a kit to help the family pay for Crew's NICU cost, which will be huge, even with insurance. I didn't hesitate to purchase it. It is on sale at Plain Digital Wrapper. I don't usually advertise for kits that are not my own, for my CT designers or from one of my stores, but this is an exception.

I'm posting about this on both blogs. This is a very worthwhile kit. It is huge and adorable.

When you say your prayers, please include Crew. He could use all the prayers he can get.

Old Fashion Christmas Add-on

I added a little bit onto my kit "Old Fashion Christmas" and redid the preview. I have learned so much about previews in the 14 months I have been designing. I used to think I needed to make the nice and neat so you could see everything that was in them. I have found people seem to like them better when they are a little messy. Go figure.

I know there are a few isolated people who purchased my Old Fashion Christmas kit last year, so I am making the add-on available as a freebie on my blog. For those of you who may not have purchase it, right now is the perfect time to do so. It is on sale for 50% off. That makes this kit only $1.88. Some of the pictures I used in this kit remind me of Norman Rockwell photos of long ago. The Dover book I used was the best. I hope you enjoy this kit. Everything in my store is currently 50% off for the Christmas season. I will be slowly redoing my previews and maybe even adding to the kits I have in the store. I would love to see what you make with my kits, so feel free to give me a link to your gallery if you use something I made.

My sister-in-law just emailed me some sad news. For those LDS members, Elder Wirthlin died last night. He was 91. He died in his sleep of old age. The little blurb she sent said he worked in his office all the way up to Thanksgiving. He served the Lord all the way to the end. He will be missed, but I am sure he is enjoying a happy reunion with his wife.
