Greetings, All! I hope my post today finds you in good health and good spirits. Busy, busy, busy! LOL There is so much going on right now. Changes! I don’t handle changes very well. I like to be in my own comfort zone and change intimidates me. But, I manage, as does everyone.
The first big change is my new blog/site. It’s coming along and I could have probably posted this there. I still am unsure of too many thing, though, to feel comfortable doing that yet. My friend is helping me as well as a couple of dear friends online. Every bit of help they have given has been so wonderful! I’m one of those people who has to understand the concept of something before I get it ‘down’. LOL In my mind, it has to make sense. Of course, this isn’t always possible. There are lots of things we do that don’t make sense! LOL Anyway, I am working on the new site and will definitely have a notice prepared when I do get moved.
The next big change is my group, Digital Whisper. Well, it isn’t my group, but, it is my ‘home’. There have been some changes there, but, now, it has been decided that DW will merge with her ‘sister’ site, Creative Souls. Creative Souls is a wonderful place! The talent there is awesome! DW was actually a group that was derived from CS. Where CS is all about any kind of art, DW was more about Digital art. By merging in together, we hope to corner the market. LOL Nah! Just kidding. But, we should have a little bit of something for all artists!
On the personal front, more changes. I started back on treatments, ditched some excess ‘baggage’ and there have been some changes with the grandchildren. It’s all good. Just tedious! When things get like this, I have to stop and tell myself, “One foot in front of the other…” Life goes on. It would be nice if I could just find a nice, quiet place to hide, but, it isn’t going to happen! LOL
It has been such a long time since I posted any links for you all. I have a list going so I thought I would share a couple here, then, I can do another post with the rest. The first one is for one download. The site, Vectorian, offers a mega set of vectors for a small fee. There is also a ‘sampler’ pack and it is free. For you Photoshop users, vectors can be used! They will open in PS, then, as you will see when you open one, you’ll be given a chance to ‘rasterize’ it so PS can work with it. Vectors really open up a ton of possibilities for design! Check out the freebie here, then, if so decided, you can pick up the entire set.
Next is Brenda’s Scrap Designs. Brenda is so talented! Have a look at her blog and all the pretties! What I enjoy most, though, is her ‘Styles’. Though there isn’t a ‘search’ box, her blog only goes back to January of this year, so, it isn’t too difficult to go back through the posts to find them all. On your way, you can see all the pretty kits and other items she makes. I think you will be impressed! I sure am!
One more, Background Labs. Obviously, this site is devoted to backgrounds one can use for their sites, blogs and designs. What I found unique about this site is their way of organizing the designs. You can visit each page by colour or theme. There are both the image and the ‘Pattern’ file. The ‘.pat’ files can be used directly by loading them into the ‘Patterns’ File Manager in Photoshop. The selection of patterns is phenomenal! Check it out!
Finally, what you’ve patiently awaited. I have the last two ‘parts’ of “Monkey See, Monkey Do” for you, plus, some extras that I made and didn’t put in with the other files. In other words, I made too much – again! LOL If you missed previous links, they are all still available.
Click on the first preview, the ‘elements’, for Part 5, and, then, the second preview, the ‘papers’ for Part 6. Then, if you haven’t visited Miss Edna’s Place, click on her preview to go to her blog for her two parts.

I have put these into Minus.com so you can download them. Each image is linked.
That’s a gonna do it for this month’s freebie! I hope to be sending you an anouncement soon for my new site! Until then,
