Afraid I have been awol for longer than usual – mainly been waiting to get my newest kits in store and linking through for you but there are some hiccoughs still at My Memories following a massive server outage at their ISP.
So, for once, my kits are in my Etsy Store and the links will take you through to there.
Many of you will know I’ve been busy advocating for the Pleven orphans in Bulgaria. My friend Amanda Unroe, wonderful lady and uber Mom is adopting 5 children from Eastern Europe and has been fundraising to cover the costs of bringing them home
I decided to pitch in and help her and the result was Child of My Heart which is sort of an adoption kit but not exclusively….the wordarts are adoption focused but everything else could be used for everyday or family layouts. The kit is on sale in my Etsy store with the whole $6.99 purchase price going straight to the Pleven Orphans Nurses fund, every cent so please do pitch in and buy a copy. Its 125 gorgeous elements including 20 papers and over 30 wordarts.
You can read more about the atrocities perpetrated on innocent children at Pleven in this blog, there is also a chip in button that you can use to make a direct donation to the nurses fund if you wish
The papers are really versatile and include Mother, Father, brother & sister options – oh, and family too!
There are even some add on stacked papers available as a seperate kit but more of that later….
So you will be wanting to see some sample pages and I have some particularly special ones to show you.
These are the pics I did especially for Amandas blog. The children are all the adoptees that the Unroe family are in the process of bringing home to their forever family. I used the kit for all these layouts as I wanted them to match the look of the whole blog. As the adoption process progresses the blog will get many thousands of hits so it needs to be looking its best while people are hungry for information on the newest Unroe’s! I so enjoyed working with these pictures.
Can you believe that the Unroe’s are adopting 5 little ones, all with special needs and one in particular, little Keith who has urgent medical needs due to systematic neglect and starvation during his time in Pleven. He is 5 years old and weighs a tiny 14lb – yes, thats right, you didn’t read it wrong and I didn’t type it wrong….
Please pray that the adoption progresses a pace – these children need a loving family to nurture them and allow them to realise their full potential and become the people they were always meant to be.
Oh, and I have a few more word arts up my sleeve too but thats for another day.
So, yet again I saved the freebie for last. Its one of those catch it while you can freebies – here today and gone tomorrow so I hope you are reading this while its still free!
Its my Creme de la Creme Pastels Kit – hope you like it – please leave me some love if you do!
I chose this kit because its the one that my Creative Team Member Celeste Lombas used to sprinkle a little magic on Amanda Unroe’s family blog. I think you’ll agree she did a great job. Celeste also kindly freshened Amanda’s adoption blog with Child of My Heart – doesn’t it look wonderful?
So, for 48 hours only you can snag it for free. After that you can buy it in store at My Memories
Before I go could I please ask you for 2 things? Firstly to share this blog on FB and twitter and link into it from your own blog? We need to get the word out about these children so that new families can be found to care for, nurture and love them. And secondly if you can find it in your heart to make a donation to the Peven Orphans Nurses fund? You will find the chip in on this blog post
Thank you so much
And to make you smile another peek at the kit and sample layouts including the lovely ones made by my CT
