Designer Darling Contest Round-up

As most of you know, I have been competing in the Designer Darling Contest at STS this year.  I just completed my entry for the final round a few days ago.  This contest has helped me grow so much as a designer and I would like to thank all the ladies involved for everything!!!  Hopefully you all had a chance to pick up all the different kits and add-ons that I did during the contest.  If not, don't worry because I am going to make it simple for you now.  :)  My first mini kit I created needs some tweaking so I will be redoing it at a later time for you all. So here are my entries for round 2 through round 5.  You can download each part right here on my blog (except for Hot Summer Days which is linked to the forum where the download links have to be till the end of the contest)  Thanks again for all the support and kind words you have all given me.

Round 2 : Gamble on Love

Round 3 : CU Basics

Round 4 : NICU Blues

Round 5 : Hot Summer Days

I hope that you enjoy all my creations and be sure to keep an eye out for more from me, no matter what the results of the contest.  I have to admit, I have been bitten by the designing bug.  :)

Designer Darling Contest Round 5

I finished up my full kit for Round 5 of the Designer Darling Contest at STS.  I went with a summer theme because usually by this time of the year, I am longing for those hot summer days and all the fun activities we do.  Here is a preview of my kit.  You can find the download links by going to the STS Designer Darling Forum.

So, what happens when the sun goes down on those warm days and it gets cooler outside?  More fun of course.  The add-on is based on the fun things we like to do on the cool summer nights.

This can be download right here on my blog.  

I also will be adding another add-on on my facebook fan page.  You will need to LIKE my page first and then click on the FAN FREEBIE button to get it.  

Hope you enjoy!!
