Colorful Life Sneak Peek & QP Freebie

Today I have a QP freebie for you that I made with my kit, Colorful Life, that will release on April 1st. Here's a quick "sneak peek" for you:

It will be 50% off from April 1st -7th only @ Scrappy Bee!
Oh! Did I mention, Scrappy Bee is a brand new store that will be having it's Grand Opening on April 1st!
There will be lots of challenges and games where you can win some pretty neat stuff (scraps and things of course). So be sure to stop by for that!
If you want, you can go there now, start using the open gallery, and introduce yourself so you can be a part of the beginning of this awesome store too! And be sure to check out the CT Calls while you're there!

This kit was made for the Pixel Scrapper March 2014 Kit Challenge. You can get great inspiration and motivation by joining in the challenges there too! There are also some pretty unique layout challenges as well. :)

And now for your freebie!

Beautifully Blessed is now on Facebook and a Fan Freebie!

I've always said I would never have a Facebook. There are way too many people on there that can steal your info and I've heard of so much drama. I've decided though, for the success (hopefully) of my business, I should probably have, you can find it here:

Now, as long as I went without a Facebook, I found it super frustrating when there were really cute kits that I couldn't get because I didn't have the ability to "Like" a page. Now that I have one and will be giving Fan Freebies, those freebies will also be available to anyone without a Facebook account. Just send me an email and I will send you a link to download the freebie. Please do NOT share the link you're given through email. If, however, you do have a Facebook account, please "Like" my page to get it.

And here's the first freebie:

The Grass is Always Greener SNP Blog Train

Yay! Spring starts in just 5 days! I'm so excited for it to get a little warmer and a lot more colorful outside. Plus, it'll officially be time for some "Spring Cleaning". I don't know about you, but my house could surely use a little TLC. I may even try to get some much needed decorating done after getting some awesome color ideas and tips from A Beautiful Mess.
But anyway, let's get on to the freebie! 

Here's my part for the blog train this month:

Wishful Spring W4E Blog Train

It's time for the Wilma4Ever March blog train!
This month we had a beautiful palette full of colors I would have never thought to use for spring. I had a lot of fun with it and I hope you enjoy what I've created for you.

You can find the rest of the stops below:
We are all on different time zones, so if someone doesn't have their part up yet, please check back later.

Quality Control for PSP Freebie

I was browsing Pixel Scrapper and noticed someone who really needed help with Quality Control for Paint Shop Pro. I've been trying to find a FREE solution to this for quite some time but the only solution I can find is way more than I can afford so I just broke down and made my own. It's taken me a good portion of the day to figure out exactly how to do it but I think I've finally got it to where it does just enough to help. The only thing I can't seem to figure out is how to check gamut in PSP and it doesn't seem like it's even possible. So I'm sorry, but that's not in this set.

I did, however, include the following:
* Check for Jagged Edges and Holes
* Check for Blurriness
* Check and Correct Resolution
* Automatically locate and get rid of Stray Pixels and Trim elements within 2 px of all sides

So, while it's not the best solution, I hope it helps.
