Beauty Within Freebie Mega Kit Part 4 & 5

And a news update~
Hello everyone,
Sorry it's been a little over a week since posting last and no doubt you are all waiting with baited breath for the final parts of this Mega Kit so without further ado.... it's here.
and because I'm running a little over with my freebies, here is the final part of the kit for you. I do hope you have enjoyed this kit as much as I enjoyed creating it.
Here's a preview of whats in this weeks zips. Part 4 a & b and part 5

News Update~

As many of you will know I've been having a little trouble with a naughty little cookie that has attached itself to my blog. I have been trying desperately to locate it and get rid of it but unfortunately its proving to be a clever little critter so I have decided to move my blog all together.
Don't worry, you will still be able to download all of my freebies from here for the time being and when the new blog is up and running most of my freebies will still be available. Some will have to go though to make room for the new kits I have been working on for you all.
For the time being, please continue to collect your freebies from here and I will re-direct you once I have sorted out the new blog. I do apologise for this but I'm sure you will all understand this is for your sake as I want you to enjoy your visits to Booland and not be pestered with annoying pop ups.
I'm hoping to improve things with the new blog all round with regular freebies, news and updates of whats going on in Booland as well as some wonderful breaking news for me, although its not 100% confirmed yet so I can't say anymore then this, what a tease I am..... lol....

I also want to dedicate a portion of my blog to all you wonderful scrappers out there who would like to share your lay outs with me so if you've used any part of any of my kits to create a LO (it doesn't have to have used my stuff only) please send me your LO's for inclusion in BooLand's Sparkles spot. Don't forget to include the credits for all the pieces you used ok. I'm really looking forward to this part of my blog. I love looking at all your LO's and learning about you through them.

As usual, if you have time, do leave a message for me as I love reading your comments. For those of you who asked about various themes for kits, keep watching this space for news of up-coming new freebies. I've been working very hard.

Hey, and when you've finished here, why not pop over to JulieO's blog and check out her forum and gallery. Tons of LO ideas, a fabulous freebie kit called 'Feelin Wonderful' and some lovely members giveaways so get on over there and let her know I sent you please.

And finally, remember to check out the fabulous 'Freebie List' Gang. Thats Selena, HappyScrappyGirl, Sylvia, RainbowKitty and Maria for now

Lots of hugs until next time

'Beauty Within' Pt 3

Here it is folks. Part 3 of my Extreme Makeover mega kit 'Beauty Within'. Have fun and send me your LO's. I'd love to show case them here.

Talking of layouts, check out Deb's (aka craZcat) fantastic LO using my frames. I love how she mixed them with another kit to get this great finish. Thanks for the link Debs, I love it.

Now on to some more serious things. You KNOW how much I love reading all your comments but someone pointed out recently that they'd been getting popups whilst on my blog.

Instead, please leave your comments on my CBox or on 4shared or email me just until I manage to get rid of the little blighter. Many thanks to all those who gave me tips on what to look for and how to deal with it. Hopefully, and thanks to all of you, the problem will soon be dealt with. Keep your fingers crossed..... lol.

Ok, without further ado, here is your Pt 3. Part 4 next week.

Mini Kit 'Ten~Pin Bowling' Freebie

Hello everyone,
Well, I've been overwhelmed with all your fantastic comments and I can hardly believe I have passed 10,000 hits. Well done to you guys and a huge big Thank You.

Now, Kittie asked me for a Bowling kit for her little daughter who is learning to play so I whipped up this little mini kit for you all in between my mega 'Beauty Within' kit. Hope you like and if you have any suggestions for new kits, please let me know. Not everything is shown in the preview. The colours were based on the wooden runs and the white and red traditional to the pins. I havn't forgotten the 'Heritage' one. I'll be working on that over the next few days.

I've got some LO's to pop on too that I did following Misty Cato's photo merge tut and using some of the fab freebies I've picked up this week so they will be here soon.

It's nearly 2.30am, it's raining cats and dogs again and I'm off to bed with a little prayer for all those stuck down South with these horrible floods. I hope it eases up soon for you guys.

Oh, nearly forgot, big Hi to all of you who left me messages on my map and guest book and for those of you who pointed out how close you are to me, wow, its great to know you are there, thanks and hugs to you all....
