I've made some adjustments

I've learned a lot with this kit and I've made changes to the elements, I hope you will enjoy them and if you have downloaded the previous version, please replace it with this one. You will have 2 weeks to do so for free, then the link will be inactive.

Thanks for all the response, this kit is no longer offered free.

I participating in a Design Race over at Digi Scrap Connect called the Design Factor. We will be designing a new kit every week for 6 weeks. I'm still working on my packaging I'm not satisfied with it but hope at the end of 6 weeks I will have figured it out. I will post a link here for you to download the kits as I make them. They will be free for 2 weeks then the link will expire. Please pass along this to your friends and have them follow me, I'd sure appreciate the traffic.

This is the first digi kit created for the Design Challenge race. There will be a new challenge every week for 6 weeks. The biggest challenge for me was figuring out where to upload the images and links to "cross the finish line". Hopefully, next week's uploads won't be as hard.
You can download this kit free for the next 2 weeks
