Facebook Fanpage {Freebie}

I have a Facebook Fan Page! Woot! It took a while to figure it all out,  but this weekend I decided to make it #1 priority to finish it…. and…. surprisingly… I DID!
.
Now I need some fans! Haha…. It seems a little sad to have my lovely new page and 2 likes:) So, I decided to offer up my one and only kit that I currently sell from my blog as a Facebook Exclusive Fan freebie for the next one week ONLY and then the freebie will be changed.
.
It’s a full kit of 20 papers and 30 unique elements made with NO CU products to ensure everything is super duper unique. The theme is perfect for scrapbookers…. “Scrap n Stuff”!
.
Anyway, if you would like to download the kit for FREE (check out the preview below), head on over to my Facebook Page and click the LIKE button. Wait a few seconds and the downloads page should load and you can grab the whole kit. I also have an ADD ON  Mini kit that you can download direct from this page… just scroll down.
Please note – the Facebook Freebie has changed! Check out my facebook page to find out what it is! The mini kit is still available – scroll down to grab it!
.
While we’re on the subject of ‘followers’ I also have TWITTER and would love for you to FOLLOW ME on Twitter HERE (@dodiesw)

Here is the Add On Mini Kit FREEBIE. CLICK HERE or on the image to download it directly from my blog.

My Latest Layouts

Well, it’s been a while since I posted my latest layouts, so here you are! A few of my layouts. I wish I had time to do more…

.
The first is using my own designs!  A lovely vacation photo taken on the beach! I did this layout in record time & think I need to revisit it as I don’t feel it’s done yet! It  needs more depth and more attention to shadowing. But no time at the moment so it’ll have to do until I have a minute to revisit it. Relaxing on the Beach - Digital Scrapbooking Layout

A photo of my sister and I taken on the Ganges River in Varanasi, India. Fantastic trip! Hopefully we’ll be there again in February.

‘Hope in the Rain’ Full Kit

{Hope in the Rain} Full Kit Freebie Digital Scrapbooking

Can you believe it? I actually made it to Round 4 of the GDS Design Contest! The FINAL round! And I made the cut! There are 8 designers left and we’re competing for a place on the GDS Design Team. What’s more, my Round 4 GDS Design Challenge kit is finished! Yay! This round we had to create a full kit of 10 papers, 20 elements and an alphabet! All in a week! We were given a photo from which we had to extract a colour scheme and were then free to create!
.

{Sorry! As this item will be the FIRST item in my brand new shop over at GDS, it is no longer a freebie. I hate to do this! If you’re interested in grabbing a freebie, check the other items on my blog or head over to my Facebook Fan Page for a freebie.

Here are a few more previews of the kit.

'All About Me' Digital Scrapbooking Mini Kit Freebie Free

My Round 3 GDS Design Challenge kit is finished! Yay! This round’s mini-kit has 5 papers and 10 elements and a coordinating cluster. I loved the colours, but we were not allowed to use CU products so we were stretched! But it was fun… once again working outside of my comfort zone.

Here is my first layout for the most wonderful Sanko Studio. I love her style and the {In the Stacks} kit was so easy to use. I decided to do a simple layout as the memory is so strong it doesn’t need much to bring it all back.

This is a photo of my dad laughing! We were on a boat going down the Ganges River in Varanasi, India. It was incredible! We drove into town early in the morning, just before sunrise, and got some amazing photos. We then took a boat ride down the river to the area that has the funeral pyres. You see it on National Geographic and in magazines, but when you go there and see it for yourself it is very different. It almost doesn’t live up to your expectations… and then you take a look at the photos you took and you are amazed.

I love India and try to visit every year. If you’ve never been, you must put it on your list of things to do!

Enjoy!
