post #500

I started blogging last year shortly before Christmas in order to post a layout for a challenge. Who would have thought that I would be sitting here today writing my 500th post in not even a years time. I sure didn't. I also never would have thought that so many people would be interested in my blog. With an average of over 20,000 hits per week I guess I was wrong again, but for once very glad to be so ;-)
Since I started blogging I not only got to sit back to back with my sweetie almost every evening (opposed to sitting alone on the couch while he is online gaming), but I really started to enjoy scrapping, could share my favorite freebie finds, have the opportunity to be on my favorite scrapping store's CT, got RAKed numerous times by some very generous designers and readers, and most of all got to know so many of you fellow scrappers from all over the world. I have to say that has been the best part about blogging. Thank you for stopping by and leaving nice comments for me. Here is a little celebration gift I made:
You can download the CD album templates here (narrowband friendly 1.9mb).

Congratulations on your 500th hundred post!! And congratulations on the success of the blog. :) To be honest it's a fantastic place to look for freebies not only because of the previews of the freebies but because how nicely choose they are. :) And I hope that all your scrapping dreams continue to become real, it's really nice when something nice happens to someone. :)

Thanks so much for the Cd templates, they are fantastic and many thanks for the lists you have posted and all the freebies you have offered. :)

Best wishes. :O)

I think you are WONDERFUL!! I thought I had to go spend 100's of dollars online to have my scrapbook look like this. Good Karma!! Thanks again!!

Cristina said...

I LOVE your blog, I don't have alot of $ to spend on anything much more than an internet connection and when I discovered digiscrapping i was thrilled I'd get to work on a hobby I enjoy and still be able to afford it and finding your blog helped make that possible. I hope you enjoy what you do because the thousands of us who visit your blog almost daily couldn't do without you!
