An award and a freebie first!

Hi all!
The lovely Katie Mann has gifted me with this award!

The rules for these awards are:
1. The winner can put the logo on her blog.
2. Link the person you received your award from.
3. Nominate at least 7 other blogs.
4. Put links of those blogs on yours.
5. Leave a message on the blogs of the girls you've nominated.

I will tell you later who I'm nominating. First, I want to tell you some really cool things!

Speaking of Katie, did you know that she has a birthday this month? No? Well, she is celebrating in a spectacular way! She is giving away a Kate album of her newest kit, Birthday Wishes on her blog- She still has a few days up, so run over and grab them! Also, she is having a challenge on her blog and giving away the add-on to her Birthday Wishes kit as a posting bonus! AND she's having a sale to boot! Make SURE you go to her blog and get the details!!

Catlady has the daily download over at Digital Scrap Garden this month and she has a great back to school kit! I know you've missed a few days, but there is still lots to get from this awesome kit!

Greedz has a new kit Veralyn that I told you about in my last post. But I've now had a chance to work with it and it is beautiful! This LO I did using 2 freebie brag book pages that one of her CTs did and her kit. It was my goal to see if I could use the brag book pages in a LO and have it look ok. It isn't the very best LO I've done, but I think it's pretty good!

August QP Olympics are up at Sunshine Studios! We have the awesome Franziska spotlighted with her kit Bohemian Rock Candy! This kit is so awesome!! I haven't had a chance to make my page yet, but you can believe I'll show it off once I do! Make sure you go get Bohemian Rock Candy (see thread for details on getting it 20% off!) and then go here to get all the QP Olympics details!

What else is new? Well, DST celebrated a birthday and I participated in a bingo event and won! What did I win? I won ACDSee Photo Editor 2008!! I have been using PS7 and the one thing that would tick me off was that I could not do text on a path. PE2008 does that and it's SUPER easy!! While I'm not going to get rid of PS7 completely, I am sooooo excited about my new program and have been doing scrapping in it. Here is the first page I've done (uses Katie Mann's Melissa kit):

I also won a bunch of great mini kits, template and GC's and want to thank all of the designers who participated!

Look at this LO I did with Wonder Girl Jen's (jen*unine Artistry) template and Katie Mann's kit, Melissa.

ok- 2 more things: who I nominate for the award and your freebie!
I have to nominate 7 people and here goes:

It's more than 7, I know, but I really do love these blogs!

Here is your freebie! It is the first word art I made on a path. And, yep, I used my brand new PE2008!! Click on image to download!

OMG! I'm so sorry that the word art had a typo! I have fixed the file but not the preview. So the real .png file is not exactly like the preview!
