Layout with today's freebies

While compiling today's freebie list, I thought a lot of the Spring freebies would work together really well. So I did something I very seldom do, I mixed different kits and elements. I also know why I hardly ever do that - my file organization sucks: I still use windows and no cataloging software like ACDSee. I know I should, but I often enough can't even get around to unzipping my downloads. I actually have 11GB of downloads waiting to be unzipped...I have got to get organized, seriously. But the PC room needs even more attention than the PC itself. If my kid would walk in here, I would have to fill out a missing person report and get help and heavy equipment to find him. It's a daily mystery how I even make it to the desk without harm.

Anyway here's the layout I made solely using today's freebies:

wow, this is gorgeous! I was actually wondering how you could scrap so quickly after downloading the freebies... now I know your secret! ;) lol, I spend hours just organizing so that when I scrap I can find stuff quickly... ACDSee would probably take loads quicker but hey, it works for me! ;)

Hi
Thanks so much for compiling this fab list, I wonder if you would like to add me to it? I have a kit on my blog for free, called It's About Time. And in my store, there are quite a lot of free kits and samplers. Also, I created a great orgaanising spreadsheet which is avaialble in my store, so easy to use and find stuff. It takes time to add everything, but once you have, it works a dream to find what you need. Once again, thanks for your hard work

I know what you mean about being organized! I actually tried to put them all in files and now I am still confused! I am gonna have to come up with a better system and then put them on CD's as a back up. You give me too many to waste!

Love the page! You are just very talented.

Great LO. I appreciate your posts with previews even. I just started using ACDSee and LOVE LOVE LOVE it. It is time consuming to get it set up because you show us so many freebies - LOL. But I can find things WAY easy now, and I'm not even completely done! Just 15 min a day.... ;)
