Holly Jolly previews and links!

By now you all know that I am always a day late and a dollar short with my posts, but hopefully the goodies I give you make up for it. :) I have been SO swamped lately, I haven't even had time to breathe. I can't wait until the holidays are over so I can finally relax for two seconds. You've already waited long enough, so to keep it short and sweet here are the previews and links.



Patterned Papers

Plain Papers

The code for the blogroll isn't working for some reason so I will just post the link to the previous blog and the next blog, as well as the home page in case you get lost. Sorry they were late, but better late than never, right?!

The homepage for the blog train.

You came from Crystal Jozlin of CrystalCreationsByDesign.blogspot.com #30

Your next stop is Kitten Scraps #32

I'd like to make an announcement....

The Holly Jolly Blog Train will be taking off in 10 days!! There are 74 blogs participating (I am stop #34!) and it is definitely something you are going to want to tag along for. I haven't put together my previews yet because, well because I can't stop making things for it! It is my first time doing a blog train and it has been so much fun.
Here is the color pallette that we worked off of. Everyone did such an amazing job, you really are going to love it. I'm going to put a preview together and see if I can't give you a 'sneak peek' at my portion of the kit.
I'm glad you are all liking the grab bags so much!! I know only one of the alpha files is in PNG, I just haven't had time to separate the others. But now I have an awesome action from Mega Doodle Inspired that will separate them super fast. So if there are enough people out there who want them separated I will go ahead and do it. Just let me know! Thanks to all of those who are leaving comments, they make my day!! Haha, I had to laugh because Yvonne of CrazyScrapWitch left a comment on my pics post (look a few posts down) about the pic of my husband and son looking over the bridge and about how far down it looked. Trust me Yvonne, my heart was leaping out of my chest, but it was such an awesome picture moment that I snapped it really quickly and then hurried up and snatched him away before he would fall down to the deep dark abyss. Imagine my surprise (and glee!) when I uploaded the pics on my computer and saw how good it turned out. I was expecting it to be all blurry and pretty bad honestly. What mother doesn't intentionally endanger their children every once in a while for that chance at that perfect photo right?
Hmmm, maybe I should re-think that one a little.
Grrrr, I don't know why it won't let me put spaces inbetween the different paragraphs. I can type it that way but it won't save it like that. Oh well. Life goes on.

SOOO Excited!!

Just had to pop on quick and post, because while searching for some freebies before I went to bed I found my preview on none other than Suzee Q's Stuff!!! She always has the best list of freebies, and I check her everyday. And it was so exciting to pop on there tonight and see that she posted my freebie! I just had to come shout it from the rooftops!!! WOOHOO! Nope, I'm not excited in the least bit. Isn't it crazy that something so small and insignificant can make us so happy and giddy? Hehe, or maybe it's just me. :)

P.S. A million thanks to those of you, how very few it may be, who have taken the time to leave a comment. It makes you feel like a deflated balloon when you spend so much time on designing and people can't bother to take an extra second to say thanks. So those of you that have, thank YOU! You really make my day!!

Yay, I have the links for you!

After having to fight with 4 shared for days, I finally have the links for you! Let me hear it - YIPPEE!!!!! There are 6 links in all so make sure you get them all. And let me know what you think after you've unzipped them and checked out all the goodies! Don't you just feel like a kid at Christmas time?? LOL! Please leave a comment if you download! I know 4shared has been difficult with the comments section (what isn't 4shared been difficult with lately?!?!) but please take an extra second to leave a comment here. It means so much!!

Still plugging away at the Holly Jolly blog train kit. I am so excited about this kit and loving the way it's turning out! I am going to make freebies in the meantime so keep checking back!
Now for the goodies!

Let me know what you think!!

I had a Trojan virus!!

So, turns out it wasn't 4shared after all, it was a virus on my computer! Luckily my antivirus software picked it up and took care of it, took long enough though!! I don't know where I get these things, the only stuff I download is scrapbook-related. Hopefully there isn't someone out there trying to sabotage the designing world by having viruses in their downloads!

While the grab bags are being uploaded at 4shared I thought I would give you a little preview:

I'm curious to see what you think! There are two zips for each grab bag. One has the papers and elements and the other has the alphas. I will post the links as soon as they are done. As always, if you use any of my designs in your layouts I would love to see them!

4shared is giving me a heck of a time with these files. I don't know if they're too big or what it is, but it gets about 75%of the uploading done and then just aborts it. I am going to try splitting them up and uploading them one more time. If that doesn't work I will upload them to a different site. So hopefully they will be up today!
