Inspiration and a Freebie

Today passed in a blur.   I know I was busy but what did I do besides clean house and chase my kiddos all day?!  I meant to have this ready early today.  One thing led to another and now it’s 10:00 p.m. and I’m just getting around to blogging about it.

Before I get to the freebie I have a very special kit to tell you about.  Special Olympics holds a dear place in my heart because of some of the students I teach.  I see all the kids in the elementary school I teach at and that includes two classes of wonderful special needs children.  These kids are the ones who come into my classroom so innocent and unassuming.  They grasp life with both hands and it is such a joy to watch them enjoy life to the fullest.  Even at the tender age of 6, 7, 8 , 9 they don’t let life’s circumstances hold them back.  Special Olympics gives them the freedom to feel that moment of success and pride that the world often tries to take away or diminish in some way.  They don’t see the world like we do, often times I think we would all be better off if we could view the world through their eyes even if it was just for a little while.

Scraps of Ellay has created a kit called Never Give Up that she is donating all the proceeds for to Special Olympics from now through Feb. 5th, 2010.  It is a bright, cheerful, and fun kit that would be a great addition to any scrapping stash.

Clicking on the preview will take you to Stuff to Scrap where you can pick up this awesome kit and help support this wonderful charity!  If you ever have a chance to volunteer with Special Olympics I would encourage you to do it, I guarantee you’ll get a blessing from it.

Here’s a layout I did with this kitIK_NGU

I mentioned a freebie in my opening so here it is.  I have loved all the great positive comments about my Winterlicious kit.  I’m so glad that so many of you liked it.  I loved getting to see layouts done with the kit and Moyenbof used it to create a custom header for her blog which I adored!  Sorry I couldn’t leave a message in French, I think I’ve forgotten much of what I learned in that language from lack of use.

I made a couple of Quickpages for all of you faithful blog readers who like them.  I hope you enjoy them!
