Template 43, Kimi's New Contest, and CT LOs

Wow am I behind on scrapping! I have lots to post tonight, including a template and a chance to win a gorgeous free kit from Kimi's Kreations!! First, Kimi's contest:

Kimi needs a great name for her newest kit, so she's having a contest to pick one. If you submit a name and win, you could win the kit for free! Runners-up will win a little something, too ;) So head over to Kimi's Blog and check it out! You could win THIS!

Either way, you'll get to download an awesome freebie sampler from the kit, so head on over! I can't tell you HOW excited I am to play with this kit when it gets released. I already have a few things in mind for it. I don't know if I can wait that long!

I swear, I've been the biggest scrapping slacker since I joined CTs. I blame morning sickness for starters;) Then it took me awhile to get both the energy and motivation to scrap again. I DID scrap a couple of things in June - my mom's birthday card and a sign for church - but that's about it. I never posted them, so you'll see them here tonight. I'm so bad that I didn't even make my dad's Father's Day gift/card until today. Yes, I'm over a month late. It's pathetic. He's been asking about it all month, too. I feel SO horrible! I'm the worst daughter ever!

Anyway, first of all, I made Mom's birthday card and this sign for our monthly linger longers at church using Lemonberry Fizz by Kimi's Kreations:

I made those pages in June. Everything else I've done since last night. First, I made my sister's birthday card and our neighbor's birthday card using Little Man by Kimi's Kreations:

LOL, I think my sister was about 12 when this pic was taken. She turned 26 today. I haven't heard a response from her on this yet, so I have no idea how much trouble I'm in for it yet!! She never reads this blog (she's not at all interested in digiscrapping), so shhh, don't tell her it's up here;)

(If you're wondering about the blur at the bottom of the text, I blurred out our last name. Don't exactly want the whole internet to know who we are;))

And last but not least, I FINALLY got around to making my dad's Father's Day card/gift. I used geniaBeana's Dad's A Geek kit. It's absolutely PERFECT for my dad - he's a programmer and has about a billion random electronic odds and ends.

I realized as I made the family cards and such that I really don't have any recent and decent pictures of my family. Hmmm. Must rectify that when we go home to visit in 2 weeks! As for our neighbor's card, I stole his pic from his mom's Facebook profile:D (Don't worry, she knows;)) I tried to lighten up the darks and darken the lights, but it was difficult to do without messing up the photo.

Which reminds me. We're going on a roadtrip soon! We'll be gone most of the month of August, but I'll likely pop in here now and then. I won't be scrapping during that time, however, since Photoshop and my stash is on my desktop and we're leaving it here. But I've set a goal for myself to make at LEAST one LO and/or template each week, so hopefully I'll be posting more pages and freebies until our trip!

And lastly, I have a template for you! I know, I haven't made any in FOREVER. Hope you like it! As always, it's in PSD format and I'd love to hear from you! Here's the preview:

You can download it here.

On a random note, my gender ultrasound is on August 3rd (my dad's birthday)!! Yay! I'll post a poll just for fun momentarily:)
