The Griffin Digital Scrapbook Kit Freebie

New to digital scrapbooking? Never downloaded a digital kit before? What in the world are .rar files anyway? Get your answers here: How to Unzip Files So You Can Digi Scrap.

Last week things were just too crazy to get a kit up. I might have finished earlier if I didn't get completely stumped on the journaling. Sometimes I wonder if I should just offer the kit without the layout, because it's what takes me the most time by far, but then, I think that it's easier to see how it might be used if I do a layout, plus, it's makes me do a layout every once in a while. My kids have been looking through their scrapbooks lately and it's a reminder to me of how important this is. Sometimes I get caught up in the creativity of it and the fun of designing it all and I forget why I do this in the first place.

Anyway, I finally got through my mental block and wrote Griffin a letter, which I think turned out beautifully. I seriously cannot believe the type of conversations we have. He asks the most interesting and intelligent questions. Right now as I'm writing, we are having a discussion about what happens if you cut off various parts of your body--sometimes it can get quite gruesome--but he wants to know if you can live if you cut off your head (I explained what the brain does), then he wanted to know if you could live if you cut off your arm, (so I explained that yes, but you could loose a lot of blood if that happened), then he wanted to know how you could cut bones (I told him doctors use saws when they do surgery), then he wanted to know if you could live if your ear was cut off (yes, but it might make it harder to hear). Then he asked, "What about the blood?" so I had to explain about coagulation and how blood clots and major arteries, then he asked if everywhere in your body has bone, so then I explained about cartilage. This is going to be great for my diet. I'm sure I won't want to eat for at least six hours after that conversation. He's either going to be a doctor or an axe murderer.

Anyway, here's the layout:



 


Kit Contents: 7 Pattern Papers, 3 Colors of Brads, 1 Overlay, 1 Paper Mask, 3 Thought Bubble Stickers

Enjoy! I'm sure you all will be cursing me for all the grisly talk, but at least you get a freebie out of it.
