Ok, so far I have a total of 8 states and 2 foreign countries on my "to do" list. Make sure you add your requests in the comments either here or on 4 Shared and I will add you to the list. As I get the requests I add that state to the list. There is no particular order. I am doing states first and then the countries.
Already uploaded are North Carolina, Texas and Georgia.
Tomorrow I will upload California.
See you then.
P.S. Texas is kicking NC's butt right now (see this post if you don't know what I mean.) But I think there are a few more people living in Texas than in North Carolina! But that is no excuse, NC! Get off you rear end and download our state! LOL
You have Kimberly to thank for this new template, Georgia Template. This is the thrid in what looks like will be a LONG series! I don't mind though. It means you like my work and want more. That's a good thing!

Back "in the day" when I didn't work and had a ton of time on my hands and there was no such thing as digital scrapbooking, I was an avid cross stitcher. Ok, so I have substituted one addiction for another!
at 6:39 PM
Never let it be said that I don't aim to please! When Pat from Houston jokingly asked when I was going to make a Teaxs template I thought that since I had lived in Texas at one point I would need something for future layouts.
But then I went hunting for photos of my time in Texas and couldn't hardly find any that hadn't already been paper scrapped. My ex was stationed with the Army at Ft. Hood and we moved to Killeen when our son was 3 months old. A few years ago I made a baby scrapbook for my son and all the good pictures of that time frame are already in use.
This picture was taken at a park near our apartment in Killeen. As you can see, my son (who is 20 now) was just a little baby! Unbelievable how fast they grow!
So here is the Texas Template. Let's see which downloads the most times...the North Carolina template or the Texas template!

Today's freebie, North Carolina Template, comes with a disclaimer! I searched high and low and even tried to make one myself, but I could not find a border with dogwoods on it. The mask I used is supposed to represent dogwoods which are the state flower of NC. I know most of you don't know, don't care and/or didn't notice. But for the few of you who take North Carolina seriously, I wanted to let you know in advance! LOL
This template can be used if you are a native of NC and you want to scrap something close to home. It can also be used for those of you who have traveled to the great North State and have been looking for a way to display your photos to show where you have been without having to use all your journaling space trying to explain where the event took place.
I have encluded a "you are here" star so that you can "mark your spot" on the map of NC (like I did in my layout of the Outer Banks.)
You might even consider using this template if your child has a project due in school. I know around the 3rd or 4th grade we studied everything about our state. Or maybe you child has to pick a state to do a report on. North Carolina's about as good as it gets!
If you haven't been to North Carolina you should seriously consider it. We have beaches, mountains, theme parks, NASCAR, football, basketball, Revolutionary War history, a professional hockey team and even pirates!

Today I am uploading a set of Round Tags. This is a single type of tag with 13 different color and texture variations.
This is a good set to have around in case you need to fill in a blank spot on your layout. You could put these in a folder marked "essentials" so you would know where to grab them without having to search forever. If you are like me, I have thousands of files of digital scrpbooking stuff! (And my paper scrapbooking room is just as full as my computer!)
I learned a long time ago (in both genres ) to grab it when I saw it or it would be long gone when I went back! In the case of digital elements, I might not even be able to find the site I saw something on!

Thanks so much to hbl on the Blogger Help Group for helping me find the right html to change the size of my titles for my posts.
Clip Art from Leere' Aldrich's At The Cabin can be purchased at pccrafter.com
I think it is really neat that people are willing to help out even if they don't know you. I've learned that these help groups are a lot easier to deal with than the customer service of most companies (like Dell, for instance.)
I'm getting ready to post today's freebie in a little while and then I have to re-format my computer. I spent most of last evening backing everything up. Hopefully I won't run into any major issues and I will have tomorrow's freebie right on schedule.
Keep your fingers crossed!

I changed it a little, hope you don't mind. I used it for a signature
Better late than never...here is the kit I told you about yesterday that goes with the All Shook Up template I posted.
There are 2 different color schemes in this All Shook Up Kit: black/gold and pink/dk blue. Tomorrow there will be an All Shook Up Kit Add On and there will be more of both colors. The dancing Elivs is in tomorrow's kit.
Let me see your layouts!

Well, here it is, my new template, Flourish Template. It was made using a mask from "SG" for the frames.
Paint Shop Pro
Please let me know what you think once you start using the template since it is the first one I have made using a mask as a pattern. Is it difficult to work with? Do you like it more? ETC.
If you missed last night's layout preview here is the layout I made using the template.

Here is a layout I did tonight featuring my newest template design, Flourish Template. I hope that by seeing the layout tonight, you will come back tomorrow and grab the download of the template!
Hello. This morning I have uploaded some Friendship Word Art for you. This set contains 9 phrases that can be used as page titles or just captions for photos.
The word art is made with different Photoshop styles so they have depth , as well as color.
Take a look at the preview and see the detail up close. You'll be suprised at how they jump off the page when you get them open!
Have fun scrapping your memories of special freindships.

To start things off, I'm so excited that Philip Rivers and the San Diego Chargers won today! Philip played at NC State when I worked at their football stadium. He's sort of our "home boy" (eventhough he's actually from Athens, Alabama.) Isn't he a cutie!

If you have been following my designing at all, you may have discovered I have a sort of pattern I follow (not really on purpose, but there it is none the less.) If I like the way something turned out I may use the style, texture or shape in another way for a new set.
Today's digital scrapbooking freebie is the 70's Psychedelic Set. I got the idea from my Parchment Package Add On. I was designing the car element in that one and decided to do a set with a 70's theme.
Also, there is another egg in this package.
Another Pattern I follow is that I always have an add on to the kits I make. (Gets you to come back to the blog again, huh? LOL) So look for the add on to this set tomorrow.
P.S. There will be a second egg in the add on kit!
