I sure hope those few that had problems d/ling from MediaFire were able to get the files. If not, please let me know and I can make other arrangements for you.
Thanks so much for the lovely comments...I do appreciate them and am glad you're liking this kit:)

Now I'm off to take a very late shower and then to install an internet connection for my dh's computer in the garage. I've never done a wireless connection before so wish me luck. Have a great day...what's left of it anyway:)

Big hugs to all...Mollie

SR Freebie Day 2

Hope you like what you've gotten so far and are ready for more:) Here we go...


Papers: 6 - 7 - 8 - 9 - 10
Alpha
Elements 4 - 5 - 6
QP
Again, please don't share the MediaFire links...just send folks the link to my blog so they can download directly from the source...thanks so much:)

And now I'm wondering how many of you have been turned on to Google Reader. If you don't know about it, check it out here: http://www.google.com/reader and make your life easier. I currently keep track of about 140 scrap blogs alone and it's the first thing I do in the a.m. I open my browser to Reader and am presented with all of the scrap folks that have posted something new on their blog during the time I last looked. All new entries are highlighted so you just jump to each one and read/snag away.

The hardest part is when you first start entering all of the sites you want to keep track of...you have to manually go to each site, copy the site addy, then go into Reader and paste the addy into their convenient "Add Subscription" box and there you are. All your favorite sites on 1 page...ya' gotta' love that! You can even move them to different folders. I have folders for 'Blog Freebie Lists' like http://digifree.blogspot.com/, a folder for strictly 'Scrap Blogs' and even a folder for my 'Favorite Designers'. And that's only the Scrap stuff!
I love not having to travel all over the place and try to keep up on the latest and greatest...Google Reader gives it all to me. Give it a shot...and no, I don't work there...lol. I just freaking love it and keep my browser open to my Google Reader page all day:)
Have a terrific Tuesday and I'll see ya' in the a.m.
Hugs...Mollie

Spring Reunion Mega Freebie

Gonna' get right down to business and we'll chit-chat later in the post. I kinda got carried away with this one but I know you won't mind. The name Spring Reunion is mainly based upon the colors I used for the kit and I think you'll find it very versatile for lots of scrapping occasions.

This megakit has 46 papers, over 150 elements, 5 coordinating alphas and I actually tried my hand at making QPs:) I'm not very good at making them but I figured you could add some goodies from the kit to make them even more special.

Warning: There are over 50 zip files to this kit and that is mainly because I kept them on the small side for my dial-up friends. They average around 10 MB each but those of you on higher speeds shouldn't be too annoyed as it'll go really fast for you:) The QP zips are about double that size but there's nothing I can do about that!

I didn't make a preview of the entire kit 'cause there's simply too much to show so you'll have to settle for individual ones. I do have a zip of the previews for you to download so you don't have to snag them from here. I'll be sharing 10+/- zips a day for the next 5 days and that will lead us right up to all the fun, fabulous stuff starting Friday for National Scrapbooking Day on Saturday...I can't hardly wait!

Here's the first 3 of 15 previews, in no particular order...click on the pics of each to get a larger view:)






Here are the links for today...they open in a new window/tab so you aren't farting around with the back button:)

Please don't send these links around...just send the link to my blog and let people download from here...it's much appreciated. Hope you enjoy the kit!

Chit-Chat of no consequence...lol. My vacation was simply marvelous! Vegas freaked my freak big time! Went to see the Cirque show KA at the MGM Grand and it was quite an experience...I think my mouth was hanging open the entire time! Simply not to be missed. We toured several facilities during our stay with the Bellagio being my favorite inside and out. I could have spent days and days watching those fountains and listening to the music. We dined al fresco at the Paris and when the fountain show started across the street, it was like seeing our dessert instead of eating it.

My stay at the Monte Carlo was very disappointing and I would never recommend it to anyone, nor will I stay there again. When I complained to management about how dirty the room was and the fact that we had to call for towels and washcloths every single day, his reply was to mumble something about the fact that they just had a fire a few weeks ago and each room had been inspected by county officials and was OK'd. Pretty pitiful in my book but I must say all of the staff we ran into in our 5 day stay were just the friendliest folks:)

My personal favorite was being downtown and having the Fremont Street Experience. OMG, I can't even begin to tell you how much fun we had down there. It's so homey and friendly and there is the coolest stuff to see! So many people just milling around and talking to each other and one gal had a drink in a cool glass and I wanted one. So she pointed us in the right direction and we found ourselves at this itty bitty casino where in the back they were serving up the yummiest frozen concoctions you've ever seen in the largest containers you've ever seen. Well, we were in Vegas and had our big girl panties on so the 3 of us gals (sisters) decided to go for broke and get the extra-large size. I chose Mud Slide, I think Debbie had the Pina Colada and I can't remember exactly what Kim chose but it was yummy. During pouring, one of the gals asked us if we wanted extra alcohol and we all said "hell, no" at the same time...lol. But looking back on this, I think she did it anyway...at least to my drink! The rest of this story is hazy but I remember lots and lots of hysterical laughing, Debbie getting brain freeze from drinking too fast and my arms getting tired from carrying around this 1 gallon container filled with Mud Slide and wondering why it wasn't going down much although I was drinking it like mad 'cause it was so, so delicious.

I was past the point of no return when I remembered that Binions was supposed to have the best burgers and dogs around and man, were they ever. First meal we had all week that was under $35.00...and actually, it was under $5.00 and oh, so good. The cooks were saints as they put up with our rowdiness!

The ride back to the strip was just a hoot but I sure felt sorry for my bil Bob...thank goodness he didn't drink but he must have had it 'up to here' with us girls yakking and yucking it up like crazy. The rest of the night can't be told but apparently I was a bad girl...what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas...roflol. Everyone else got up at the buttcrack of dawn the next day and I still can't believe they weren't all sick! I just had a kink in my neck and a terrible headache...kink from watching the fantastic light shows downtown. But I got up around 1 and was feeling right as rain. Surprising 'cause I haven't gotten drunk in over 12 years and I'm not supposed to drink because of the meds I'm on so that drunk will last me into my 70's...lol.

OK...enough of this chic-chat. This post will end up being an entire page long...so enjoy the freebies and see ya' tomorrow with more.

Big hugs and hope you're all doing well!

Mollie
