Retiring and Taking Down My Blog

Happy Holidays everyone!  It's been a very busy year.  I haven't done a lot of scrapping in quite a while.  Life moves on and so does our priorities.  I've decided it's time to retire from the scrapping world.  I've stepped down from all my Creative Team responsibilities and will be taking down this blog.  Between 4Shared deleting all my download links and Photobucket not allowing any more photo hosting for blogging, it's just been too much of a hassle to try to go back and recreate all my links and photos.  So as of December 31, I'll be deleting my blog.

It's been a wonderful 7 years since my first blog post on June 12, 2010!!  I've shared lots of freebies, templates and tutorials with the world.  Hopefully, you've gotten to use some of them.  I've always loved seeing my templates used in layouts at Mousescrappers.  I've made so many great friends across digi-land, especially those on Mousescrappers.

It warms my heart to know that I might have touched or inspired a few of you.  Thanks everyone for reading my blog, making comments and utilizing my freebies.

Have a fantastic holiday season!  Our paths might meet again, in some other shape or form.
