Digital Scrapbook Designer Challenge and Freebie

I found an awesome Digital Scrapbook site (PixelScrapper) that, among other things, has frequent designer challenges... just what I needed to get back into designing digital scrapbook products.  I had forgotten quite a lot during my absence after my stroke and I have to say, everything takes longer now that I have only one functioning arm and hand; keyboard shortcuts are nearly impossible (I now have to use an On-Screen Keyboard).

Anyway, onto the freebie...  I created the following while participating in the March mini, designer challenge at Pixel Scrapper  - I'm not thrilled with my results but really love how one of my frame elements turned out and I rather like my alpa set.  This alpha is what I had been working on when I had my stoke last July.  It wws nice to be able to finish it!  I am planning to release custom shapes of this set in the future that will be for CU (Commercial Use);however, this set in this 'Organized Mess' kit freebie is NOT for CU, this one is PU, S4O,& S4H   ONLY.

  12. He descubierto este hobbye hace muy poco tiempo y a ti particularmente a través del ten de Julio de Pixel Scrapper.
    Quiero fecicitarte por tu buen gusto al hacer los kits, son preciosos, dan ganas de descargarlos todos... espero con impaciencia el momento de estrenarlos.
    Ahora he leido lo que te pasó el invierno pasado, quiero felicitarte sobretodo por haber superado el revés que sufrió tu salud, habrás tenido que pasar por un proceso lleno de dolor y esfuerzo diario, eso habla de tu gran personalidad, tu perseverancia...
