CHD Awareness Blog Train

Choo Choo!!  Here I am as the caboose for the Blog Train!!  I am finally back online.

CHD (Congenital Heart Defects) Awareness Week is Febuary 7th through 14th.  Apparently CHD is one of the most common birth defects and as many as 1 in 100 babies are born with it. Though many treatments are available, unfortunately it usually means lots of doctor and hospital visits for the little ones.  For that reason my contribution to the blog train has a very medical theme.

There are a few more elements than shown, mainly some more color variations on the pills and shots.  The papers are more generic, including some grungy solids that can be used for any type of layout.

The other participants in the blog train are:


Winks Art

Shelly Chua

Calli Scrap

Meredith Cardall

Since the blog train started on the 7th and I am late due to technical difficulties, you will need to scroll down to find the post on some of these active blogs (but it will be worth it!).

And finally here are my links.  They are on 4shared, which recently suffered some hacker activity, so please let me know if any virus alerts are triggered!!

For those of you on high speed internet, you can download the entire kit in one big 62 mb download here.

For those of you on dial-up, here are links for 3 smaller downloads:
Elements ** see update below before downloading, please!!
Papers Part 1
Papers Part 2

**** UPDATE Sat Feb 13th at 11:25 am central *****

I just got feedback from somebody that their AVG virus alerted on the elements file.  It was scanned clean by 4shared's Kasperky anti-virus when I uploaded it, but just in case some hackers have messed with it since then, I have uploaded it again and you can get it here  I am not deleting the old link just yet as AVG lost credibility with me a few years back when they flagged an important Windows file as a virus and screwed a bunch of people up by deleting it.  I would appreciate feedback from people with other anti-virus software as to whether or not their programs alerted.  Also, 4shared seems to have a lot of traffic right now.  If you get a server limit message, just come back and try later.  I have no plans to delete any of the links anytime soon - except of course if they are virus infected, then I will replace.  But do remember to come back, please!!!

If you are new to my blog, please scroll through the old posts.  Almost every one of them has a freebie!!!  And please do come back, as I will have some Valentine freebies up soon, including a Valentine's blog train starting I think on the 13th.  (I have a lot of catching up to do after being offline for 2 weeks!!)
