A sample of my handcrafts for sale

Hi all! I'm back with a quick update of my May 15th post. The nifty Quick Page design contest is underway over at Cool Scraps Digital, and there are a total of 44 contestants entered this month. All of the Quick Pages will be posted in the gallery for viewing as they are completed by each person, and the free download links will be posted in the forum under the thread about the May Quick Page Contest.  Each page designer will make an individual post in that thread which will contain a link to the gallery view, a link to her blog, and a direct download link for her page.  If you haven't visited Cool Scraps Digital before, you will need to register in their forum before you'll be able to see everything I'm talking about.  Registration is free; just a user name and password.  To recap a bit for you, we are working from "FLORAL SURPRISE" kit by Created by Jill.  Here's a look at the kit . . .

My method of madness is my own.  I'm always excited to get a free kit to play with, so I download, unzip it and get right to work on my first impressions without looking at any other person's work at that point.  That way, I know my creation is inspired by my own observations in the kit and what impresses me first.  Here's the first Quick Page I did at that point and the one I am submitting as my freebie . . .

I hope you like it well enough to hop over to the forum at Cool Scraps Digital, pick it up and collect any of the other 44 that intrigue you.  You'll have a great opportunity to make a wonderful Quick Page Album totally free!  All pages have been instructed to be at the 8 x 8" size, 300 dpi, png files so that folks can print at home if desired.

I've grown very fond of this particular monthly challenge as I find it works completely as I had always hoped a challenge of this type would work!  I plan to be a part of it every month, so you can watch for my monthly quick Pages or, better still, follow my instructions above to start collecting the entire QP albums!  Clear up some room on your hard drives!

Hope to be back soon with some more of my own freebies for you!  Until then,
