Stand By Me

If any of you were following the story about (QueenWild) Lahni's husband John when he was electrocuted on the job last month, you will already know this story.  For those of you that haven't heard here is the story. On Wednesday October 23, John was working in Banff. He was up in the bucket, working with street lights and received an electric shock. He was taken to the hospital via STARS air ambulance. He was put into a medically induced coma for 24 hours as he had been without oxygen for 5-15 minutes and the hypothermia state was to help minimize the possible brain damage.  He is expected to make a full recovery and is out of the hospital and back home with his family at this time.

We came together as designers here and from some other stores to show our support for Lahni and John by making this kit to help raise some money for their lodging and food while John was in the hospital and to help with donations to STARS - the air ambulance that most probably saved John's life.

Join with us to purchase this beautiful kit "Stand By Me" to help raise funds for the family and STARS.

Kit includes:
alpha (uppercase and lowercase, numbers and symbols in sheets and individual PNGs); 8 glitter sheets; glitter styles; 153 papers; 13 frames; 12 tags; 5 butterflies; 8 hearts; 2 feathers; key; bird; star; owls; bear; birds on branch; 42 flowers; 21 leaves; 19 ribbons; 3 bows; 7 strings; lace; 3 ricrac; trim; 5 stitching; 15 buttons; anchor; 3 clips; brad; 4 staples; charm; 2 banners; 3 borders; stitched border; 2 smears; 4 swirls; 2 scatters; 13 word art; 3 templates (PSD, TIF, PNG, Page formats)
This kit will only be available thru the end of December.  Kit will also be sold at Scrap Take Out.

Digital Scrapbook Day! (um..weekend)

It's the second anniversary at SNP and it's DSD weekend! Can I get a WHOOT?!! They have planned a super fun weekend for you! The customers and designers are some of the best people in digi and we are so very excited to have each of you actively involved in our community! You  have no idea how you've touched our lives and how much we enjoy chatting with you and looking at your layouts. There is something wonderful about SNP. It's the friendships we create. It's the way our stories intertwine with those of the people we've never met in real life. It's people from all over the world uniting in this wonderful way that helps us to capture those small moments in time that make up the stories of our lives. Nowhere else can you find such an awesome group of people who work and create so closely to build such an amazing community for all of us to feel at home in. This weekend we are celebrating each and every one of you be{You}tiful people. The challenges and chats are centered around getting to know you better. We hope you'll join us this weekend as we strengthen our friendships and our community. I'm sure there will be a lot of laughter and of course they've created a Be{You}tiful collection of goodies for you that you won't want to miss. There is a fabulous facebook hop where you can collect 25 be{You}tiful templates and they wouldn't dare celebrate their anniversary or DSD without an awesome store wide sale! There will be 3 live events each day (with the exception of Thursday when there will be only 1) where we can meet in the chat room and get a little crazy (or a lot crazy for some of us...but I'm not naming any names!). There will be prizes awarded at  each live event so be sure to be there on time! We'll also have 2 challenges for you each day where you can earn the pieces to a HUGE collab (We're talking 96 Papers, 82 Journal Cards, 190 Ellies and a full  alpha!!)! You'll have all weekend to complete the challenges so don't stress about getting them done quickly. Kick back with us and enjoy your weekend! Happy Anniversary SNP and Happy DSD weekend to all of  you!
