Update, Kit Preview and a Re-Shared Freebie!

First, the update:  My music kit has been slow-going because I'm sick.  I was hoping I was just having my usual flare of colitis, but nooooooo, I have a virus of some kind and I'm miserable.  Nausea, trouble eating, bathroom issues...you get the idea.  Because my health is poor anyway, when I get something like this it really takes a toll on me and knocks me for a loop.  On top of the GI issues, I'm pretty sure I have a sinus infection because I'm having headaches, a lot of pressure in the sinus areas of my face, and I'm dizzy, which is usually a good sign that a sinus issue is affecting my equilibrium.  I'm also running a low grade fever.  Even my eyes hurt, which makes the detailed work difficult. Boo Hoo for me!  Please keep me in your thoughts and prayers.

Now, the preview:   I'm so sorry that the music kit is going to be later than I'd like.  I have, however, restructured this first kit.  Instead of it being focused on classical music, I've decided to make it the general base kit and have classical be the first add-on theme. This first kit is going to be a huge one!  LOL  I've got a good start on it...most of the papers are done (I'm up to 56) and a good bit of the usual elements like frames and bows, etc., are also finished.  I'm now working on most of the images that need extracted and/or need more intensive work.  I've chosen a broad color palette, take a peek:

Here's a few previews:

There's a whole set, in varied colors, like the latter element that explains what musical terms mean.  Well, I hope this will keep you excited for the upcoming "Music of My Life" kit!  It won't be too long in coming; I promise you I'll work hard to make it happen as soon as possible.

And, lastly, the freebie!  Today, I'm re-sharing my Victorian Halloween freebie kit with all of you.  I think it turned out pretty darned good way back in 2007, if I say so myself! LOL  Hopefully, you'll agree.

Here's the previews:

Here's a couple layouts Patti from The Flight Crew made at the time.  That's here in the middle picture of the first layout.

And, here are the links:

Hope you enjoy this kit and I would REALLY love to see what you create with it.  

Blessings, as always,

I hope you are feeling better.It's hard when you're attacked on all sides by the nasty stuff! Thanks for the great kit. Fall is my favorite time of year and Halloween is my favorite holiday. I know I'll make good use of this one. Can't wait to see Music of My Life. For me music is like the air that I breathe. Hope you're well soon!

This is so very much my kind of kit - thank you! I can't celebrate my favorite holiday properly since I live in Germany, but I have planned for ages now to scan and scrap my childhood Halloween photos, so this will be perfect. Amazing kit - thanks!
