Skrap Happens Phoenix Charity Kit + FREEBIE!

Hi guys!  Popping by today to tell you all about a Charity Kit I was fortunate enough to be able to contribute to!  When I saw the call out at Skrap Happens to put together a Charity Kit for the Disaster Relief of the Earthquake in New Zealand, I knew I wanted to help out!  Then, when I got over to Skrap Happens, I discovered a wonderful little community, bubbling with happiness & friendliness galore!!  You just can’t leave that place without a smile on your face!  Seriously, head on over to Skrap Happens & say hi to the girls!  They are the sweetest group of ladies, really!

Okay, down to business!  This kit is HUGE! HUGE, I tell ya!  With over 100 papers & 200 elements, it’s above & beyond worth the $10!!  And, 100% of the proceeds from this kit are being donated to Samaritan’s Purse, specifically to aide in the New Zealand Earthquake Disaster Relief!  So, you get an enormous Scrap Kit AND your $$ is donated to charity! It doesn’t get much better than that!  Let’s take a look at this beauty of a kit:

“You can knock down a building but you can’t knock down our people. They will dust themselves off and get back up again.”

This quote was made after the earthquake in New Zealand, February 22, 2011. So is the Phoenix as it rises out of the ashes to live again.

The designers and some of the members at sKrapHappens have created this massive kit entitled “Phoenix” as a way to help our sisters and brothers in Christchurch, New Zealand.

Phoenix comes to you with over 100 beautifully, textured papers at 300 dpi and sized at 12 X 12 in jpeg format, over 200 gorgeous elements,17 beautifully created Word Art and 2 Alphas.

Phoenix can be yours for a donation of $10.00. It is our way of extending a helping hand…a heart of love. All monies will be given to Samaritan’s Purse and earmarked for Christchurch, New Zealand Earthquake Disaster Relief.

Here’s a look at my contribution to this kit:

And, just for taking the time to read through this, here’s a Cluster Frame FREEBIE I made up w/ my portion of this kit!  Enjoy!  🙂

I’m working hard on Week 4’s layout, but it’s giving me some problems here!  We are required to use Camouflage print papers & Blend our photos into the background!  Eeeeekkkkk!  I’ve never blended a photo before!  I’ve always tried to make my pages look as close as possible to “paper scrapped” so blending was never even a thought to me!  I guess I better start learning some new tricks here if I want to win this thing!! hehehe…  wish me luck! I’m off to make a killer layout before Sunday!!!  Have a great day everyone!!
