Yep, that's right!  As crazy as it sounds, I've decided to plunge off the deep end and start all over.  I started Elle Designs last year as a "just for fun" site to put up my design experiments without annoying people on my family blog.  Now that I've decided that I really like designing and want to do more with it, the original site just didn't fit my vision. There are a billion design sites already out there with the name Elle Designs. It was becoming impossible to even create an email address for Elle Designs without it becoming ElleDesignsisthebest2589675@gmail.com.  Plus people were confused by Elle, thinking that was me, but I'm Rachel and Elle is my daughter. The site itself was too cluttered and unorganized. I wanted to start over and make something that was more "me" using the skills I learned in the CSS Pretty course I took (which I highly recommend--more on that later). Thus Citrus and Mint was born.  I love how everything turned out and I hope you do too!

Head on over, check it out, and let me know what you think!  Oh and you may want to download the new FREE kit. :)  All of the tutorials and freebies on this site were transferred over there, so there shouldn't be any need to visit this site anymore. Please update your RSS feed/re-subscribe to get updates from the new site and you can even visit the new Citrus and Mint facebook page for news and more freebies!

So, I was working on an Easter kit. Then it turned into two different mini-kits.  Oh well, you get both for free.  There aren't many elements because I lost steam and ideas and ability.  The good news is that I finally got Photoshop CS and Illustrator!  That means that once I learn how to use these intimidating programs, you will get even better free stuff.  The bad news is that this will probably be my last post for a while.  I am moving across the country and taking several long vacations over the next two months, and I won't have a computer.  So, I am taking a short break, but I will be back with tons of creative ideas in July.  I'm very sad to leave y'all for so long because I just started the site.  Please stick with me and I promise I will be back!  I will still post freebies to my pinterest board "Scrapbooking Freebies," so make sure that you follow that board for the latest freebies during my absence from the blog.   (scroll down for my free Easter mini-kits)

Here are some inspiring Easter/springtime layouts to help you scrap your Easter pictures. Click on the picture to link to the original page.

Finally something that the boys can use too!  I only have a girl so I usually create girly things, but most of my friends that scrapbook have boys.  This is for y'all.  All of the animals were hand-drawn by me. So, no making fun of my horse!  I am completely aware of my inability to draw a horse to save my life. Sorry to all of the horse lovers out there.  I hope you enjoy the kit. I may think of doing a coordinating alpha later. If you download, please leave a comment.  Feel free to direct your friends to the link as well! Find the links to the download on the my freebies tab.
Here's a two page spread that I did with the kit.  I hate it when I have to scrapbook a page with lots of photos and lots of text.  It is hard to make it not look too busy.
