Welcome to my Blog and a Freebie

Welcome to my new blog! I'm completely new at blogging, so things are very simple around here now. Eventually, I'll get around to making a nice blog header, but this will work for now. I've been digital scrapbooking for almost 2 years and have recently started dabbling in design a little, mostly for challenges. So, this blog will be where I can share some of my design efforts. I'm NOT an established designer and really not looking to be one. I think trying to sell would suck the fun out of it for me. I use mainly PSP9, but I got PSE5 with my Bamboo Fun tablet for Christmas, so I'm using that a little to run actions and do brushwork. The interface confuses me, though, so I can't see leaving my trusty PSP any time soon.

The first freebie I'll post here is my contribution for the DSO March Color Challenge. I really liked the color palette, and thought it would be perfect for an Easter kit suitable for scrapping boys (since I have 2 of them). Most of the Easter kits out there are so girly, though I have seen a couple nice ones for boys.

So, here is the preview for Egg Parade. Remember, I'm just dabbling, so be gentle, LOL! If you download this and actually use it, I'd love to see your layout.

The download link is here:

PLEASE don't share this link or upload my kit to any filesharing sites. Just send people to my blog to download - I plan on leaving this up for awhile.

It was so fun to work with! ~Meg aka weitgereist

Personally, I don't care for the colors for an Easter kit, but there are several things about this kit I LOVE, such as the painted eggs, the flourishes, and the bracket frame. I think you're well on your way, and I can't wait to see what else you come up with!
