Farewell 2009 & Cleaning Out the "Digital" Closet!

As 2009 draws near to a close I would like to take a moment to say that this past year was a phenomenal one - and thats partly due to YOU!

I was not planning to post today as I am between painting my finger and toenails, having a beauty nap and then preparing for a romantic New Year's Evening alone with my most handsome Mr. He's also sprucing himself up and has bought and brought home a selection of delicious and exotic morsels which he himself is going to cook up and serve me later this evening. Yes, our daughter had planned to be here but now won't arrive till tomorrow. I'd looked forward to seeing her but then again... there is something COMPLETELY special about spending this momentous evening with the most amazing man in the world, my husband.


I was thinking about what 2011 will bring, and though I do not make New Years Resolutions, I prayed and was led to think that 2011 will be a "Giving" year. In that train of thinking I would have loved to build a new wonderful digital kit to give here on my blog, but with time of the essence I simply cannot. So... I rummaged around in my digital archives and dusted off my "Junkyard Garden" kit which I created under the name of Olivia Dorazio when I designed for the Sophia Sarducchi Studios - which folded last year. I do not even have time to change the graphics, so I am giving this kit "as is" with the old info from Sophia, you will just have to ignore that. I will GIVE this kit for FREE (for Personal Use) over the next three days - the papers today, the alpha tomorrow and followed up on Sunday with the elements pack. I hope you enjoy!

In case you wonder what ever happened to "Sophia" herself, that would be Saxon Holt who now designs for Scrapbook Elements - and you can find her amazing products by clicking HERE. I sure miss you Saxon, you were a wonderful "boss-lady" and my experience designing in the digital world was a very positive one!

I also will post a digital layout in the next day or two featuring my wonderful New Year's Eve romantic celebration using my friend KimB's new kit called "A Fresh Start" - If you are looking for a gorgeous kit to scrap your New Year's memories you can't go wrong with this kit!



Just click HERE to be taken to Kim's blog where you can find instructions on how to get to her store (elbowing your way through the stampede)

And now I will take myself off to the closet to riffle through and find the absolutely most pretty thing I own to amaze my Mr. with! Here are the previews to my full "Junkyard Garden" Kit and then the link to the papers pack! Don't forget to visit over the next few days to scoop the alpha and papers! I would love to see how you use this kit! Thank you for all of YOU who have visited my blog this past year.
