Year to Shine kit

Happy New Year! I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and that everyone is healthy and well.

This kit that I created is for New Year's. Each year when we sit to write our resolutions, we are always trying to think of what we can do to become better people. Whether it be to eat healthier, spend more time with family, become more organized, be a better friend, etc., our goals are always to make us better people.

I came up with a catchy phrase that says, "Two thousand nine is the year to shine!" This kit, called "Year to Shine" is to remind each of us that this is the year we are going to shine! We are going to become better people. Imagine, if every single person on the earth actually tried to become a better person, and followed through with it, wouldn't this world be such a more lovely place to live?

I hope as you think about what you can do to better yourself, that you take a look around you and realize that the things you do will make the world a better place. 2009 is the year to shine!!!

Summer, a PERFECT title it is and I am standing on it!!! I've used that term a lot lately when commenting to others about how they SHINE! While I am not a practitioner of resolution making, I do start each day with the idea of making an improvement in myself and doing something for someone else.

Thank you for sharing this kit MANIFIQUE and for sharing of yourself, your family and your friends this past year. You ROCK girl!

I wish you and yours a VERY Happy New Year and may 2009 bring you MUCH love, PEACE, JOY, GOOD HEALTH, HAPPINESS and PROSPERITY!

BIG HUGS,
Linda *hearts*

Your kits amaze me. I always think the last one I downloaded was my all time favorite until you come up with a new one and I am totally in love all over again. i have 15 scrapping ladies I follow and love but none of their kits come close to as cute as yours always are. Thank you! Thank you!! Thank you!!!

I don't know if you will ever even read this comment...you are a popular girl! Just wanted to say thanks for sharing all your free kits. I am new to Digital scrapbooking. I have looked through hundreds (okay maybe not that many) of sites and yours is the best by FAR. Seriously...I love your colors and designs. You seem to be an amazing person. Hope all continues to go well for your family. Thanks again for your generosity!

Hi Summer I downloaded prt 1 of this kit and was so impressed with your designs. i can see this is going to get used over and over even though they are not colours I would usually use. One thing I wondered was whether you would be able to indicate which papers are in which part. It would be really useful to someone like me on dial up in NZ as it takes about 6-7 hours to download ONE part. Thanks for your generosity and dedication. People like you sure make scrapbooking CAN be affordable for people like me: )
