Whooo Hooooo!!! And so it has begun!!!!!  It is the VDBC 2nd Anniversary CELEBRATION!!!!  And boy oh boy do we have some awesome things planned for you!!!  (So be forewarned this is going to be a LONG post - but make sure you go all the way to end - cause there are tons of great things just for YOU!!!)

To start off the celebration - did you know that this is my 1st Birthday of being an "exclusive designer" for VDBC?!?!?!?  Well it is!!!  I have official been on the VDBC and "More" Team for a year now and to celebrate I am offering all my designs to you for 45% off THIS weekend!!!!  That's right ALL my designs (including my collections) are 45% off from now until Midnight Sunday Oct 17th!!!!  So head on over and SAVE!!!

 Next - I am hosting a GRAND THEFT CHALLENGE on the Forum!!!

So here is the rules... To enter this challenge you need to visit the VDBC Gallery and choose someone's layout that you want to "scrap lift"!

Then scrap your lifted layout.

When completed you need to go to THIS VDBC forum thread and post your scrap-lifted layout that you completed along with the layout that you scrap-lifted....

For every entry to the challenge you will receive ONE entry in the drawing for a  "Glue Art’s" Sticky Prize Pack!

If your scrap-lifted layout includes one of my designs you get TWO entries for each layout.

And if the layout you scrap-lifted from has a Beloved Keepsake design you will get THREE entries for that layout!

All layouts MUST BE submitted by midnight Sunday, Oct 17th!!! The winner will be announced on Monday!

Any questions? If so take it up with my thug!!!
Next - I have decided to offer you a free cutter design - well actually THREE free designs!!!  Yep - one for each day of the 2nd Anniversary Celebration!  So here is a peek at today's free design!

I figured since it was the 2nd Anniversary that an anniversary design would be appropriate!  I think this would be super cute on a card front or a scrapbook layout out.  You could also use the bracket in the back for a journaling box or as an accent or even a border!  So lots of multi use available with this one!!!
Now to get this download, first we have to reveal the fine print!!! (I know, I know I hate the fine print too - but unfortunately my mean lawyer says I have to put it on here!!! Bahahaha)

Please note that this design is covered by my TOU (terms of use). If you do not have a copy of these TOU please make sure you download it HERE before downloading the freebies!

This design is only available for a short period of time - once it is no longer available here it will be available in my section of the VDBC Store for purchase!

Please do not share this file. If you know someone who might like to have it, then send them HERE to get it!! (Thanks sooo much!)

To download today's FREEBIE - just click on the file type you wish to download - and when asked enter the password: iagreetotou

(This is a paid 4share account, you shouldn't have any issues with downloading from here or getting a virus but if you have an issue please email me!)

Sorry design is no longer available for free download.
You can puchase at VDBC in a few days!
Now for the last fun thing of the day from me - Beloved Keepsakes.... I have decided to give away a SECOND "Glue Arts" Sticky Prize Pack!

To enter to win this prize pack you just need to leave me a comment answering today's question!  Each day I will be asking a different question - and if you answer the question each day - that means your name will go in the pot three times for the drawing to win the "Glue Arts" Sticky Prize packOnly one entry per day is allowed!!!

So... here's today's question....  "What topic of cutter files would you like to see in the future?"

That's it - just leave an answer in the comment section and you will be entered to win!!!

Make sure you head over to the VDBC Forum and see what else is happening this weekend!!!  I know all the other designers have some great giveaways and fun things planned this weekend as well!!!

Happy Shopping, Happy Lifting and Happy Scrapping!  (Oh and don't forget tomorrow is another freebie - so make sure you come back!!!)

Until Next Time!

Ooh, I'm the first to comment! Hey Lori, I would LOVE to see more card designs--I loved the Uplifted one you did for the October grab bag--it's amazing--and since I love to make cards, I always like to see new shapes, ideas etc. Thanks for the freebie file too!

Kelly S October 15, 2010 at 8:29 AM  

Thanks for the great freebie. And the chance to win some really great prizes. As far as cutter file topics, I would love to see some general-purpose accents. Something you could use to dress up a card or layout that might need just a little something extra. Swirls, shapes, something. I don't know. You are the creative one, right? LOL

I love this file, can't wait to use it. I would love to see more files about school. I am always scrapping things like field trips, assemblies etc. Those would be great.

moovet October 15, 2010 at 9:57 AM  

Thanks for the freebie. I like the 3D files-pop ups, boxes, sliceforms and things like that. Also some more masculine files would be appreciated.

Thanks for the freebie file. To answer your question: What topic of cutter files would you like to see in the future? I would have to say more boys and teens files.

jzayler October 15, 2010 at 3:09 PM  

First off thank you Lori for the adorable freebie!!! Secondly thank you for having a second chance give away! I know I won't have time to 'shoplift' anyones designs and make a layout (unless there is some miracle in my life) so I truly appreciate the seperate opportunity to win!!! I like simple accents as well, swirly flourishes, simple holly and berries, gingerbread people, a fox (I've had a terrible time finding one)

CBH October 15, 2010 at 4:34 PM

I'd love to see more files about cruising. I have 4 books to get done. Island, ships, tours, that type of thing.

Jnett's Place October 15, 2010 at 6:43 PM  

I'd love to see something for cards revolving around sympathy - tough topic I know but have been coming up against these of late.

Renae October 15, 2010 at 7:13 PM  

Lovely file for an anniversary card. Thanks for sharing. As for cutting file topic, I have searched for sympathy card designs and find very few. And you can always use variety for birthday cards.

Anonymous,  October 15, 2010 at 8:46 PM  

I would love to see more tropical/vacation type designs. Thanks for the freebie!

Esther W-B October 15, 2010 at 9:01 PM

momof5 October 15, 2010 at 11:40 PM  

Files for wrestling as my boys wrestle and I have not been able to find any files to use to scrapbook their pictures. Also I would love a file with a 4-wheeler.
