LDS Blog Train: Worlds Without End

Hello Visitors!! Members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints believe that Worlds Without End were created. I have chosen in my mini-kit to focus a bit on the one we have. I love the children's song - I Think The World is Glorious which inspired my word art. (You can download the song -sheet music and MP3 as well as multiple languages at the link above.)

Pick up this mini-kit at sendspace. Like any free site, be wary of the ads. Look for the link that says: "Click here to start download from sendspace. Sometimes it takes some people to another page that offers a quicker download - uncheck the box under that download button and it will take you to the slow (but no additional software) download page.

Hop back to the LDS blog train site for a complete list. Some have done Family Home Evening printables.

New Kit and Freebie: Misty Morn

Finally tucked away, Misty Morning is in the store.
Misty Morning is a kit I created during a contest some years ago. I am using the Revived title, (thanks to ....) to indicated that each piece has been improved in some way. I have also added many new items.
You can get this kit for free this month in the Quick Page challenge over at Ivy Scraps. Get the kit, make and share a quickpage, and do a bit of advertising for me ... the kit is yours!
Personally, I don't use quickpages. I think it stifles the creativity. But for a fast way to create a page - they are a good idea. But after you have used them once, would you use them again? I stole an idea and this is the first time I have tried it as a designer. I have created a stack and a cluster which can be combined quickly in many, many different ways. I want to see if it is true. So I am giving away the Misty Morning stack and cluster shown here. Anyone who posts 2 different layouts in my KatLen Kreations Gallery at Ivy Scraps will be entered in a contest for one free kit of their choosing from my KatLen Kreations Ivy Scraps store (CU not included).
