Presenting my very first scrap kit!!


so I finally got inspired to make a scrap kit.  after some fiddling, frantic downloading of freebie scripts and goodies, and some yelling at PSP, it is finished!


if you are wondering, the colors were inspired by a lovely Ismael Rac tube called Ready 4 Summer.  of course, you don't need the tube to use the kit--it just helped me out of a bind with a color scheme because i couldn't settle on one!

presenting Summer Splendor:




you can snag it over at 4shared.

please follow the TOU inside when using and let me know you snagged it.  i hope you enjoy it.  and, of course, i would LOVE to see what you make with it!

[an extra thank you goes out to Dzines by Melz for the kit's preview template!]
