Another Place and Time

There's nothing like starting the week off with nice free gift. Therefore, I'm going to start each week off by letting you know about a freebie digi-scrapbooking kit (or 2 or 3 :-) that would be of particular interest to genealogists and family historians. It might be an era-themed kit, an ethnic kit, or maybe it will just have a timeless genealogy theme. The best part is it will be free for the taking. But it may be a limited time offer so you'll want to hurry on over and download it. (Don't forget to say thank you with a comment for the designer ;-)

This week I'd like to tell you about 2 era-theme kits that I'm sure you'll like. The first is called Retro Glamour by scrapteam. This is a great kit that captures the golden age of Hollywood (1930s-40s). If you've got an old photo of an ancestor in one of those "strike a pose" poses, this may be just the right kit to make a sensational page. Make your ancestor a movie star! Here's a preview of the entire kit:

The second kit is by a designer who I've just recently discovered. She has her pulse on another great era... the Hippies of the 1960s and early 70s. So far she's just released the first segment of her kit called Hippy Chic, there will be more to come. But there's no reason to wait! Head on over to Candee's blog and download Part 1 of Hippy Chic. Here's a preview:

Don't ya just love it already? I remember those "flower power" days... and I have a few photos that will look just great with this theme. Remember the music... Simon & Garfunkel, Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, Lovin Spoonful, Joan Baez, The Grateful Dead, The Stones, Bob Dylan, and The Beatles of course. Pull out those long-hair photos and get creative with your genealogy!
