PS August 2016 Back to Nature blog train

Many changes since we last posted a freebie, but we've still been creatively creating, just too busy to share.  Who said life slows down the older you get?  Don't believe them!

Still learning a lot about digital painting!  But I couldn't pass up this months theme at Pixel Monday, I decided to get serious about a kit to share.  

We've been enjoying southern MO, and showing friends and family around the area, including our kids! Trail Riding and canoeing, along with just hiking to see the wonderful springs here in the Ozarks, is a big part of life here.  So 'Back to Nature' had to include some of the gear for the trail rides, saddle, spur, and don't forget the dogs!  They wouldn't be happy if you left without them, believe me we know, as our lab mutt is still adjusting to life here in the Ozarks, or rather we are, before we attempt to take her city nose out to far into the country.  

So many of the other wonderful contributions included the river activities that I decided to just focus on the riding, even though we had our first chance just last week to get out and "float the river".  Though I don't think our son set his paddle down more than a few mins, as we did 10 miles of river in less than 3 hrs!  The first half of the trip, I think he was just excited to get a good workout, the last half - well let's just say it was his stomach.  We had only brought old sunscreen and two water bottles with us, not thinking we'd head farther north before putting in, or planning on doing more than 5 miles, but when someone is lending you the equipment and makes a recommendation, the guys listen up!  After you've snagged my goodies head over for more at Pixel Scrappers!  You'll be glad you did.

One more thing, our family has been hit hard this last year with cancer.  It's probably effected your family or friends as well.  If you'd like to donate to help those still battling and for research, please head over to my Relay for Life fundraising page.  Even a little bit could help find a cure, or supply someone battling with a ride to treatments or fill a stomach with needed nutrition drinks, and you'll feel good for giving back.

Now to the freebie.  You can grab everything in one download if you wish, just click on the bundle preview.

Otherwise click on the photo of the parts below that you'd like.

I've even created a few 8 1/2 x 11 papers, if you're interested.

I hope you enjoy using these.
*Back up and running, thanks for your patience.
