I have new stuff and a Freebie ♥

I know, it's nothing new for me to have some new good for you all :) I love putting things together after searching/creating for the perfect color pallet. The real reward really comes from those who use my design to scrap with. Have you used my designs? Send me a link to and I'll send you a sweet surprise♥ Deal? 
This week I bring you my new Autumn kit. I just love the time of year when things seem to go into a sort of calm and all the leaves start to turn such beautiful and rich colors. The sound of the wind blowing them down the street in the morning and having the windows in the house open without losing cool or heated air. There is so much more I could say about it but for now, I'll leave you with my creation/interpretation of the season.
New goodies in store:
This kit 'Sweet September' is on sale for $2.27 for a limited time.
