First Hybrid

Okay all you digi-scrappers, today was a day of two first; my first template I designed and my first hybrid project - combined.
So, I'm looking for feedback from you. What would you do different? What did I leave out? Come on now... be honest. It's the only way I'm going to learn :)

Last week Chris, Cathy, Kensi and I went to Michael's and I found this cute embellishment that I knew I wanted to use, and knew exactly what picture I wanted to use this with.

So this is what I came up with. So I created a template that had 6 pictures in it, so I could play off of the color arrangement in the "giggle" piece. I used embellishments from JAELOP DESIGN's Happiness Kit, who does absolutely AMAZING work. I've downloaded a couple of her kits and this is the first opportunity that I've had to used them. Her Happiness Kit was the perfect color combination that I was looking for, and it had complementing rhinestones that went with the ones in the 'giggle' piece. The stitched frames are from her Colors of LIFE kit. I used "Saginaw" as the font for the word "first".

So I then dropped the "Giggle" to create this.

You can get this digital scrapbook freebie by clicking here . You don't have to leave a comment if you download, I know what it's like to be searching for freebies (smile)... but if you do use it, I'd love for you to leave a comment with a link back to your finished product so I can see what you've done.

You're template is awesome. I know you want critisism, but I would not change a thing :) It's awesome that you 2 became parents recently. It's amazing how it changes your whole outlook on life. Congrats!!!

Great template thanks! You have a lovely family and I agree with you that forcibly divorcing you violates your constitutional rights. You are a tax payer and you should be allowed to marry. Love is love and comes in many shapes, sizes and forms and should not be discounted go guy!

Thanks again!

Thanks so much for the template! I think it's perfect as is, I wouldn't change a thing.

I came for the freebie, but I've spent most of my night reading your blog. Kensington Grace is very lucky to have such loving parents. I hope you'll have success in further spreading the message that sexual orientation has absolutely nothing to do with parenting ability. There are too many children needing parents, even if they are only temporary foster parents, and the laws in some states that prevent them from getting loving homes for reasons that have nothing to do with how well you can parent, it's ridiculous and shameful. Children don't care about such issues, they only care that some one loves them and looks out for them.
