For All Us Pet Lovers

I've been so crazy busy this month, but had to take a sec to share this very special layout by our dear Ivy Scraps Member ~ Bernie aka Bernadette1 in our forum. She wrote the poem and I'm just so very impressed I wanted to highlight her special talent!!!

Every once in a while I get in the mood to write a little verse, so I did this one back awhile ago, and thought that I would post it. I love animals and hate to see them abused and not taken care of.

Helping Hands Charity Kit at Ivy Scraps

From spring through early summer of 2011, parts of the U.S. were
ravaged by unexpected and devastating weather. Fires, floods, tornados
and other disasters struck the country in the north, the south, the east
and the west. And Samaritan's Purse was there for communities in
Missouri, North Carolina and Alabama.

With your help, Ivy Scraps will be there with "Helping Hands" for
Samaritan's Purse! Fourteen designers, some established, some new, some
who sell, some who otherwise offer freebies only, contributed to this
colossal kit. Perhaps you'll recognize some of the design names:

Atria's Creations
December Daydreams
Designs by Gloria Val Verde
Designs by JMDT
Diane's Designs
DigiDes Designs
LightningBug Creations
LilyBelle design
Made from Scratch Mostly--LLG
Phoenyx Flower Creations
(The) Quilted Pixel
Scraps by DonnaW
Waite for the Moment Designs

In a palette that speaks of the best of spring and summer, the Ivy
Scraps Helping Hands Charity Kit, for Personal Use only, weighs in at
over 550 MB and contains 83 papers, 173 elements, 2 full alphas with
some special characters and punctuation. Digiscrappers, this is the kit
to have in your collection to scrap all those memories you've been
hanging onto.

100% of the proceeds from this collaboration will go to Samaritan's
Purse ( in support of families and communities
nationwide, especially in hard-hit eastern NC, Tuscaloosa, AL and
Joplin, MO. Thank you so much for lending YOUR Helping Hands in this effort.
