{I’m A Survivor} Kit Release by AmyDane Designs TODAY!

**Post author is DanaJ**

So…I (Dana) got involved with my local Relay For Life organization last year and things are heating up this time of year for our big event in June.  I wanted to have a digital kit to be able to scrap it this year, so that’s how {I’m A Survivor} began.  I ended up with a rainbow of strong colors and over 20 papers, with a variety of elements, including several styles of the purple ribbons associated with Relay For Life.  One of the American Cancer Society/Relay For Life slogans is about creating a world with more birthdays, so I even tossed in a couple of birthday-type elements to make this kit great for scrapping all kinds of celebrations.  Check out the previews and layouts:

ADD_IASpreview (600 x 600)

There are glitters to go along, too:

ADD_IASpreviewglitter (600 x 600)

I don’t have any Relay pictures to scrap yet (I was a bit overwhelmed last year and had ZERO time to take any pictures), so until mid-June, you’ll have to do a non-Relay layout from me, plus some great layouts (Relay and non-Relay) from our always fabulous CT!

Dana (Love the scraggly-hair-picture of Khloe as she struggled to skate after a l-o-n-g day of play…lol, and her pictures were perfect to use the speech bubbles I included):

120110ADD_IASkidznightskate copy (600 x 600)

Brooke (I love all the bright, bold color in this layout!):

Tammy (You can see the special colors for the Thyroid Cancer ribbon that will be in the upcoming addon, leave a comment in THIS thread at Stuff To Scrap if you’d be interested in a specific color for me to include in the addon):

Lindsay (The first LO shows off those birthday-theme elements I talked about earlier):

Guest CT, Lahni (Aren’t these adorable!?!?  Watch for the addon to get the pink ribbons and maybe a few matching papers soon!):



And, even tho she’s my very best digi-scrap friend and co-designer I don’t think I’m too biased to say I think I saved the very best for last, Amy’s layouts (her son is a survivor and she really did some awesome work with this kit!):

So, if you are one or know any cancer survivors that need some layouts made, this is the perfect kit for you!  Get it while it’s on sale for $2.50 (thru 5/19) and get those pictures scrapped!  I am going to be donating money from the sale of these kits to Relay For Life, so don’t wait to buy this kit—our event is June 11th, less than a month away!  Share your layouts with us in the STS gallery and if you do any work with your local Relay, I’d love to hear what you do in the comments here.  If you would like to contribute to my Relay For Life fundraising for the 2011 year, you can click here, it’s a great way to make sure your money is well spent in the fight against cancer, even $1 goes a long way.

Celebrate. Remember. Fight back!

Oh, and if you stayed on until now, be sure to check out the FREE word art that goes along with the kit in the AmyDane Designs store at STS:

The most awesome kit EVER by Scraps n Pieces!!!

Scraps n Pieces has a custom High School kit called High School Memories!  They pulled their color palette choices from the NFL uniform colors, so they pretty much have all the school colors available.  This is how it works:  You purchase the product.  There are no downloads in the product, just instructions for you to send your color choices along with a copy of your invoice and your school name/mascot name to us and they do the rest!  Plus, if you get permission from your school, they will actually put in your actual mascot.  This kit is not on sale, but it is still a steal of a deal for you since it is a custom kit. Head HERE to see all the available options in the new High School Memories kit!

Remember...these aren't the only options.  YOU get to pick the colors, school and logo!  The first kit listed above was created for the high school where my husband is the Athletic Director, my oldest is a Freshman and My middle son plays AAU Basketball.  I LOVE this kit.  I use it all the time for every member of my family!!!  It is THAT awesome!  

Branson with his Dad at a Girls Varsity Basketball game...he loves his dad.  :)
John got in the spirit of things when the admin team at the high school challenged the students to see who could show more school spirit before State Basketball Playoffs. {And didn't I do a great job shaving his head!?}
Sydney in her Chiawana gear watching a basketball game...yes there are flowers in this kit!

I think Lori and Heidi created this kit with the idea that I didn't have enough pages of Cayden scrapped.  :) It has been so fun watching him wear the CHS jersey when he plays for the Chiawana AAU team.
Anderson is a freshman this year.  I can't believe it.  He let me take this photo ONLY when we went on a non-school day and there was not a sole around to see him posing for the camera.
More pages of Cayden playing CHS ball.

And here is your Quick Page Freebie using High School Memories the Chiawana kit!
