June 2016 Color Challenge at theStudio - my free contribution

Most every month at Digitalscrapbookingstudio.com (aka theStudio) the designer known as ADB Designs hosts a color challenge for it's forum members and I just love the sweet, delicate color palette chosen for this month so I decided to create and contribute a freebie mini kit to coordinate with it.

OK, I'm a day late but here it is anyway...
Pixelscrapper.com has a new Blog Train Digital Scrapbooking collection for June 2016, using the color palette shown above.

I really loathe creating Previews,so, given that I'm late in posting this, I decided to forgo a traditional preview and post 'contact sheets' instead.  Here's preview 1 of 2 for my papers:

Wearing the Designer's Hat Again Just For Fun

I guess I'm not very good at sticking to what I say.... I missed designing so, in a creative mood, I decided to create a mini kit to go with the March, 2016 Color Challenge at theStudio.  Here's what I made:

Hanging Up My Designer's Hat

Although, I hope, at some time in the future, to post links to more of my previously unreleased designs, I have finally made the decision to permanently stop all designing of digital scrapbook products;  I just cannot do what I once could, nor what I want, since my CVA (Cerebrovascular accident) and I wish to spend the little energy I have to continue with both the volunteer work that I do for my local chapter of TCF (The Compassionate Friends) as well as complete the research of my family genealogy project.

Thanks to all who've supported me here through the years.

Here's a parting gift(?), useable for PU/S4O/S4H (Personal Use/Scrap for Others/scrap for Hire) only (please read my Terms of use page before downloading).

Help Me to Choose - Which color Palette should I use for creating my mini kit for Round 3 of the 2015 Next Designer Contest

I didn't participate in round 2 of the NDC (Next Designer Contest) because I wasn't inspired by the theme but I do want to participate in round 3 but I cannot decide what colors to use for the autumn theme.  I've created three options using autumn photos of my home and neighborhood in 2008...can you help me choose by indicating your choice in a comment here?  I need help ASAP; only have 3 days to complete!

Option 1

Option 2

Option 3

Next Designer Contest 2015 and two new FREE to Download, Digital Scrapbook kits for Personal use

It's that time of year again...theStudio (http://www.digitalscrapbookingstudio.com/forum/index.php) is holding it's annual Next Designer Contest (hoping to find a new designer to add to their team).
Although, I am no longer interested in joining an online digital scrapbook store, I am participating in the contest for both the fun and tradition of it; (who knows?), maybe I can, at the very least, gain a little recognition for my designs.
Week one's contest submission was due this morning at 6:00 AM - EST, which, much to my own surprise (in spite of a blinding migraine on day one), was a deadline that I was able to meet.

If you're interested in downloading my freebie contest kit or any of the other designer kit submissions, please visit the Digital Scrapbooking Studio Gallery for the 2015 Next Designer Contest here:  http://www.digitalscrapbookingstudio.com/gallery/g1825-2015-next-designer-contest.html  (I'm not sure, but you may need to be a registered member of their forum to gain access).  My contribution can be found here:  http://www.digitalscrapbookingstudio.com/gallery/2015-ndc-round-1/p197297-simplicity-2015ndc-week1.html

Here's the kit preview:

and here is a preview showing only the papers:

And, speaking about chllenges, I also contributed to theStudio's color challenge for Sept.  You can find more information about the challenge here:  http://www.digitalscrapbookingstudio.com/forum/showpost.php?p=225686&postcount=1
