New from Alexis Design Studio STERLING ROSES

Another amazing kit from Alexis Design Studio called STERLING ROSES ... so beautiful! You can find it exclusively at The Digi Chick.  You can purchase the bundle and save $

or purchase each pack separately

Here is my layout using this fabulous kit -

"All dressed up for Easter" - photo taken Easter Sunday April 1, 1958 - I turned 8 years old the next day, and my sister Sandy was 5!    I think this layout compliments my black and white photo very well!  (The dresses were made by our mom, and they were BRIGHT ORANGE organdy! ... I'm so glad this photo was in black and white, because I don't wear ORANGE!)

Today's freebie was made with all of you who are still suffering from the unbelievable WINTER of 2014 ... at this writing  my home in Central Texas is still suffering from record breaking freezes (we broke the record for the number of days with freezing temps  - 53 days -  on Feb 3, and we've had more!  Although we haven't had the problems that some of the US has had, Texans are just not accustomed to these temps!  Yikes! )  I hope by the time this publishes - winter will be behind us here in central Texas!  (EDIT:  We've had several warm days since I wrote this post, and my lawn is greening ... that's a sure sign of Spring around the corner for us!)

I participated in a template challenge back in January at Go Digital Scrapbooking,  and created this layout!

Kit - True North Scraps FROSTY FLAKES
True North Scraps HOLLY DAYS
Template  GDS JAN TEMPLATE CHALLENGE by Jem Scrapper
(challenge complete - link expired)

Photo - by my friend Pat - in upstate New York, Feb 2013 
That is DEFINITELY not Texas!

When I posted it on the True North Scrap CT forum, several of my team mates suggested that the clusters would make great freebies, and I agreed.  So I prepped the one at the top of the layout for today's FRIDAY FREEBIE!

Although I used paper from FROSTY FLAKES in my layout, this cluster is made completely with elements from HOLLY DAYS (and there isn't a hint of Christmas in it, which was the original theme of the kit!)
