Bohemian Breeze Sept. 2015 Blog Train Freebie!!

Ok, so I know I have seriously been neglecting my blog lately! As many of you (from Pixel Scrapper, anyway) may already know, I have retired from full time designing. I now design just as a hobby, (when I can find the time)! I have been spending a lot of my time now with my boys and hubby, helping with my son's school (he is dyslexic), my 4 year old with a new super fun pre-school home-school curriculum, my daughter with her college sorority stuff, and many fellowships and get togethers with church family, community, and friends!! It has been a super fun summer with new adventures and even some spiritual fruit, as a friend of ours came to know the Lord and experienced His hope, forgiveness, and LOVE!!  May we all continue to grow in the Lord, becoming disciples, willing to love others by giving them the good news of salvation and hope (especially in the dark times we living in now, where there seems to be no hope)! May we all learn to "delight" in the Lord, learn about Him (who created us all so unique), get to know Him through His word (the bible)! Fall in love with Him to the point where we just can't stop talking about Him and what he actually did for us to our friends, family, community, and well, anyone!! And if you don't know about or quite understand what He did for us, or what salvation means, or how to be saved, check this link "Have You Heard The Good News?" to get a better understanding!  So, while things have been really awesome and super busy these past few months, I haven't had ANY time to design! But now that school has started back again, things are settling down a bit, and I think I will have a little time here and there to design some. And JUST IN TIME too, because when I saw the theme "Bohemian Breeze" for the Sept. Blog Train, I got super excited and REALLY wanted to participate! So I started on it, thinking I would just make a few papers and elements! As time went by, working on it here and there, I realized that I was making more than "a few papers and elements"! So this is the end result! I know its a little bigger than "a mini kit", but I put them into 3 different downloads to be easier to download:) I hope you like it, and be sure to grab ALL the portions to this months "Bohemian Breeze Sept. 2015 Blog Train" over at Pixel Scrapper, your gonna LOVE it!!! Also, remember to leave some love for all the wonderful designers that participated, it means a lot to all of us:) Thanks, and God bless each of you and your precious families and may He fill each of your lives with His Truth, His love, and His peace!!!:) Love you all!!

  1. Beautiful Sheila. So pleased to see you back designing even if it's just a "hobby". I actually gave up my work to focus on family around the same time you did so I totally respect your decision and I'm glad it's working out for you.

  33. I just had to say that I absolutely LOVE your work. I mean, this is truly fantastic! Coming from someone who lives very broke, stay-at-home mom with a boyfriend, so I can not justify spending money on images, so I bounce around everywhere finding freebies. I LOVE the pixel scrapper and just started following blog trains. Might even want to start making my own scrap images, if I learn how. This is the second month I've followed, and your work is just so good!

    And, you aren't afraid to make and give a lot away for free. That is really appreciated by someone like me. Like, a lot. So thank you, for filling my life with a little bit of beauty while expecting nothing in return for it. It brightens my world. I need that.

  39. Shelia, once again your work is off the charts... LOL Quoting my niece!! But your kit month is just stunning. Not to say all your work is not stunning... But I recently took a young child in my home that had a horrible home life.. She is a beautiful, loving and gifted child... But as you can imagine has some serious issues we are working through. I have one blessing in the fact she was raised in church enough to know the love of our Lord and I have been able to take her back to church and expand that love. She saw your kit and feel in love!! I tell her daily how beautiful she is and your kit encompasses what I say to her daily. She asked me for the first time if I would use your kit to scrap some pictures of her. I was so moved... I have tried with other kits, I have bought kits but NONE moved her... Until yours... For that I will always be eternally grateful!!!! I cannot thank you enough!!! But on to how beautiful your kit is this month... It is truly gorgeous!!! The Native American theme is just stunning!! The dream catchers are so beautiful!!! I would love to get in touch with Samantha, I have a list of sites that would truly give her more wonderful kits... If you know how to get her in touch with me that would be great!!! Sheila this month I truly cannot express what your work means to me!!! Thank you

    1. Wow! I can't tell you enough how HONORED I am that your daughter loved my kit!!! And I am so glad that it conveyed to her how beautiful she is, because she is a precious gift from God and I pray that she will see herself the way you and our Father see her!! After all, he made her perfect in every way and she is complete in HIM:) Thank you for your love for this precious child of God, that you are caring for her and giving her the "the way, the truth, and the life" through our Lord Jesus Christ!! Also, email me (my email is reid6usaf74@hotmail.com) and I would love to send her some more kits I think she'll love:)!!!!!!!! Give her my love, Sheila
