Rooting for Stacey

Over at, "Nicoal Goes Digi Scrapping" Stacey is previewing her contest entry for the Growing in Grace Magazine for Ladies and I gotta say, she's outdone herself in this kit. The kit she's submitting for the contest, "There is a Season" was inspired by an Ecclesiastes verse.

The color scheme that Stacey chose are cozy and reflective of the Fall season and her elements and papers meld so perfectly. I just LOVE how she created this lovely Digital Scrapping kit, and guess what? It will also be in her stores for sale to the general public later tonight! And and and!!....a freebie from the kit!!

Hop over to Stacey's blog and read where you can buy this absolutely lovely kit and please be sure to wish her Good Luck in the contest. You have to admire her attitude when she says, "I may not win this contest, but I truly did enjoy the process of completing this kit".

Freebie Flower Photograph

This is a bloom from our Rose of Sharon tri-color bush. It was taken with a Nikon D40x in high resolution. The size is 3872x2592. If you'd like to have it you can download it here. I love how the blossom seems to be floating with the light from behind it. No filters OR Photoshop voodoo has been used on this photograph.

Some ideas would be to extract it for Digital Scrapping or maybe as your Desktop background. I have no restrictions on the use of this photo because beautiful things in Nature do not have any limitations such as TOU's. Please freely enjoy it.
