A Day Late but NOT a Freebie Short!

Happy 66, Pop!

Happy day after International Digital Scrapbooking Day! Yes, it’s true, not only did I not post anything yesterday, but I didn’t even have my computer turned on! Skipped the whole thing. But I had a good reason!

A few months ago my brother had a fatalistic idea for Pop’s birthday. How about both of his kids show up unannounced and take him to dinner? How cool! I was totally in! David and I did the hour and a half trek, leaving around 10 and through text communication hit the Michigan border about the same time Dave and family did on their way from Indianapolis.

Aunt Judy, who was in on the plan, left the door unlocked for us so we could get in while she was teaching a class so we could be in the house when Pop got home from work. About 2 PM, Pop came in and the six of us cheered “Happy Birthday!” He had no idea! Aunt Judy did well!!

So, since I didn’t have an iDSD freebie for you all for the holiday yesterday, I have not one but THREE inspired templates for you today. The three templates were developed form layouts I did from our vacation to Florida in the spring. I saw a building that just screamed scrapbook page to me in Unadilla, Georgia.

I snapped the shot for the sole purpose of using it to make pages later.. Gotta love Digital cameras for that!

This is one of the layouts I did from the shot:

Template - Unadilla On My Mind 3 by Digitalegacies Designs

In all, I did three pages for the Georgia part of the trip that were variations on that theme. Those three layouts made into Unadilla On My Mind, a nice three-template set!

As my “day late but NOT a freebie short” gift, I’d like to offer the full set for download. I hope you can use some of the sale and freebie kits you scored yesterday to put them to good use!

As always, I’d love to see any layouts you do with Digitalegacies Designs products. Feel free to leave a link in comments at any time or drop me an email at chroniclesofnanii@gmail.com!

Have a great rest of the scrapping holiday weekend!

Your templates are great!! I love the photo of your Dad. He looks so surprised and happy. What a fabulous idea for a birthday. p.s. You have the same twinkle in your eyes as your Dad. There's no mistaking you're his daughter! I think that's just wonderful.

Now I have to go and use this burst of energy that I have, or I'll lose it. You have a wonderful day. Hugs, Edna B.
