"Hey, Mr. Groundhog" STS Forum Blog Train Freebie

Hi all, welcome to my portion of the STS monthly forum blog train. This month's theme, "Hey, Mr. Groundhog" was nominated by myself and I feel so honored that it was chosen as the winning theme.

I must tell you that there is a little story behind one of my elements, if you haven't already guessed that. LOL. Some of the forum members were wanting to know what exactly a groundhog looked like, so I searched the web and found a couple of photos of groundhogs, but I ran across this photo of a "militant" looking groundhog too and found it so funny that I just had to post it in the forum as well.

Well, one thing led to another and I was dared to provide my version of what I call "Groundbo" (a cross between a groundhog and Rambo). So here you go, a groundhog that is ready for Spring and won't take no for an answer, enjoy!

Here are all the stops on the train:

"Steampunk" Freebie Collab with Seal Scraps

The kit I have for you this week is one of the most fun collab kits that I have ever done. Steampunk was inspired by a forum member at STS. Her son had recently introduced her to the steampunk genre and she thought that it would make a wonderful kit. Ashley of Seal Scraps & myself, both being married to engineers, jumped at the opportunity to create this super fun eclectic kit. Today we will have the papers for you, tomorrow the elements, Wednesday the alphas, & on Thursday we will have some great quick pages for you.

Here are 2 layouts that I created using both kits.

Here are some great layouts by my creative team members, I will be posting more tomorrow.
