Thanks for joining me this week! Remember, there may be no freebies for the next couple of weeks while I work on finishing my contributions for Digitals' Birthday Bash #4!

I print the layout side and the plain side and then cut them out. I purchased one of those acid-free fine point pens made for scrapbookers and use it to write at least the name(s) and date on the blank page. I might also write the place the photo was taken (if known) and any other info I might have. I usually wait about 24 hours before doing this to make sure the printer ink is set.
If I am using a physical album, I then adhere the layout to one side and the journaling to the other side and let dry thoroughly. I prefer to use glue stics to do this -- especially if I have printed on lighter weight photo paper. After all my pages are complete, I take them to a local print shop and have them laminated. This can usually be done while you wait. When I get home I do the final trimming and punch the holes. I arrange my pages in the order I want them, add the covers and use either locking rings or ribbons to "bind" my album.
HERE is the link to Day 5's download. SORRY, THIS LINK HAS EXPIRED.

I decided to do another freebie week since I will be busy working on completing my contribution for the Digitals Birthday Bash #4 which will include another Blog Train! So my blog freebies will be suspended until after the Birthday Bash activities. This week I am giving an entire Luggage Tag Album based on my Heritage Collection: Dear Old Dad page kit. These albums are really a lot larger than they look on your screen. This particular album is approximately 5-1/4" wide by 7-3/4" tall! By the end of the week, you will have 9 pages, 9 coordinating plain backgrounds and 3 sets of front and back covers! I have also included journaling lines in both horizontal and vertical formats. See the preview below:
And if you downloaded the freebie from August 18th, you will have a 10th coordinating page!
Here is the link to TODAY'S download. THESE LINKS WILL ONLY BE VALID FOR 24 HOURS. The kit will be available in my store after September 22nd.
SORRY, THIS LINK HAS EXPIRED.

I promise I will have another super-freebie next week!

The very worst thing was being out of power for 5 days -- 2 days less than Katrina. The upside was that we continually had a lot of cloud cover and rain so it didn't get up into the 90's like it did the last time which was definitely a blessing.
Someone asked why we couldn't evacuate. We have 3 dogs and 1 horse. We no longer own a horse trailer and so someone needed to be here to feed and care for him. Also, they really don't want you to bring your pets when you evacuate and there is NO WAY I am leaving my dogs! They did have minimal shelter provisions for pets and their owners this time, but I am not sure how that worked out -- I haven't heard any reports from people who used the service.
I checked out the files you all said were missing and you were right. So, I am uploading them tonight and will post the link tomorrow.
Thanks everyone for your concern and prayers. I am so fortunate to be involved in a community where there are so many wonderful people!
