This has been a week of goodbyes for us….first Matthew and now my sister Kimberly & her family head back to China.  It’s been an emotional week for sure!  I was thinking that to counteract that sadness…..I would do something that would make me happy.  So I am going to start giving away all of my digital products from my designing days.  I’ll post them periodically on my blog – free!  I don’t know when I will have time to go back to designing and I would love for this stuff to get some use.

All that I ask is that if you use it – I’d love you to post a link here so I can see!  It’s so cool to see someone use something you made – so here’s the first freebie!

Essential Blacks: these are a great staple for any digital scrapper!


Please do not share the link – you can refer others here to download it themselves, but do not share the link directly, thank you!

I will leave you with this amazing photo Kimberly took of my family earlier this week….

  • Saying goodbyes seems to be a big part of our family life, too. And no matter how often we do it, it still doesn’t get easier. Our time for goodbyes is coming up soon as we head back to Croatia. It gets harder on our girls as they get older, but I always remind them that it is a BIG blessing to have so many people to miss and who miss us back. Hugs…
