So remember, my inspiration for this kit was to create a package that we can use to tell OUR story . . . and I know, I know . . . a lot of us don't like to have our photos taken so I suggested making pages without photos or without an image of ourselves, so I created some layouts reflecting my own advice (grin)!

And one with my photo:

And because I'm a mom of two boys, I try to make every kit flexible and diverse so that you can use it to great a boy page or two, like these two featuring my sons Jamie and Bradley:

This has been such a fabulous experience . . . I've met some truly talented women and designers. It has boosted my confidence and hopefully a future in design!

Coupon for Paper Sale!!

Woohoo . . . it's a sale!! Now is the time to stock up on paper . . . buy three packs of NDIDDS papers for $4.00 with this coupon . . . FOR REAL!

Let's do the math . . . if each paper pack has 20 papers (I think they all have more than that . . . ) then at three packages for $4.00 = LESS than $0.01 per paper!! How can you pass that up?!!

So, if you haven't picked up the My Story Paper Pack:

along with the freebie add-on:

Happy shopping here and here!!
