Digital Scrapbook day and {free} digital downloads!

Hi there bloggie peeps!  I am finally over my cold and feeling much better.  Hard to believe we're already into November though...yikes!! I need to get started on my Christmas cards!!  Have you guys started?  Well, I guess that's really a topic for a separate post altogether.  Today, I've got some fun news to share!  Since tomorrow is Digital Scrapbooking Day,Stampin'Up! is making a big to-do about it by giving away some free digital downloads starting today, November 4th through November 7th!  Isn't that cool?  I have to say, I LOVE LOVE LOVE the images and layouts in this free offering.  Head on over to to check them out and download.  They are free for ANYONE and EVERYONE!! You don't need to have My Digital Studio to use the downloads..  You can use them with any of your digital applications {so AWESOME!}.  Here's the link to all the deets.  It's definitely worth the while to take a peek! 

Just to share a sneak...Here's a digital card I created using one of the free layouts. It was originally a "Home For The Holidays" layout, but I changed it up a tad to be more harvest/Thanksgiving-y to match the photos I wanted to use.  I've used a few of the pics in other layouts that you may recognize, but some are new, too.  The sentiment I used is one of the freebies from the stamp brush set - I love the font!:
What do you think?  I really am enjoying the digital scrapbooking.  My little boo boo has inspired me to capture and remember all those precious every day moments in life.  It's truly amazing.  Pictures are such dear snapshots of life unfolding before your very eyes.  I think becoming a mom has given me a whole new perspective.  It has reaquainted me with the innocence and sweetness of youth, which I am greeted with everyday seeing my sunshine's smile.  Now, I see the pull of scrapbooking.  Taking pictures and capturing the emotions of the moment is addicting!  Ahh, but as usual - my enemy is time and trying to find enough of it to enjoy life AND chronicle it, too.  There's the rub.  I think you'll probably see more of the digital scrapbooking on the bloggie blog, woven in with posts of my cards and papercrafting.  Afterall, this is Rose's World, and it's continually evolving and starting to "revolve" around the little guy.  Stay tuned.

That said, I've got some stamping, crafting, and some "me" time ahead of me this weekend!  I'm going to Sandy Hancock's Demonstrator meeting tomorrow, and I'm excited about it.  I have a feeling I'll have lots crafty inspirations to post about in the coming weeks!

Well, my friends, that's it from me for now.  Hope you guys have a great weekend!  I'll catch up with you guys in a bit!

Hi Rose
That is a beautiful card. Just a touch of color--how lovely. I will take a look at MDS. I have made my very first digi LO using My Memories Suite. I also think that it will be addicting, but maybe now I will use ALL those digital photos we take!!
Thank you for sharing and encouraging us to play.
