Only In My Dreams

I'm excited to be releasing this new kit that I've worked on this week! This was for the Brownie Scraps Designer Challenge. If you snag this kit and do a layout using it, you can head over to the Brownie Scraps Forum and post it under Unbaked Brownie Challenges/Link Your Layouts Here thread. If your layout is chosen, you win a $5.00 gift certificate to their store. How cool is that?? Anyway, back to the kit. Along with the color palette I chose, the theme was Weekend Getaway. Well, I being one who stretches things a bit, came up with the name/theme of my kit Only In My Dreams. The idea behind it is that sometimes we can't just escape for a weekend away, but we can read a book to take us on far away adventures. Or we can dream about visiting or somewhere exotic like ancient Rome. So, that's how I approached it. I think it has kind of an old world feel to it. Anyway, I'm rambling......

I want to first show you some great layouts an amazing bunch of ladies created:



Lina did 3!
Brandy did 2

And Mine, I did 2

Click on their names to head to their blogs and leave them some much deserved love! They did awesome on such short notice! I so appreciate all of them!

Here's the kit previews.
This week we are going to do the downloads a tad bit different! Here's the schedule:

Monday: Papers--click HERE to download them today! **Link Expired and can now be found in my store by clicking HERE***
Tuesday: Elements
Wednesday: Alpha (my first ever alpha that I just finished up today!)
Thursday: Quickpage downloads.

I'd love to know what you think! I sure hope you'll enjoy it! I really am liking it!
