What's better than Halloween candy?

The entire month of October in the digi-world is better than candy because there are TONS of treats everywhere and you won't get tooth decay! Make sure to keep checking the DSO blog for the daily downloads and you absolutely need to check in on Halloween for a "mega" surprise.

The SAS team has a blog-hopping, trick-or-treat event planned on October 30 (one day BEFORE Halloween). You won't want to miss this one, either. Here's a peek at who's handing out the goodies:

By the way, some of you have asked how David is doing and I'm happy to report he is healing nicely. There was a lot of bleeding the first night but it finally subsided, he's doing what he's supposed to for after-care, and it's all good. The hardest part for him is not being able to play his trumpet for two weeks. Thanks for your well-wishes and prayers.

My friend Brenda has created a benefit kit and I promised her I'd mention it on my blog. Her new kit, In The Navy Now, is perfect for Veteran's Day (just around the corner!), or any type of military layout - maybe even for the every day hero in your life. Brenda has committed to spend all the proceeds from this kit on packaging holiday boxes of every day items for the sailors on the USS Ramage currently serving in the Persian Gulf. What a worthy cause and a lovely way to help make the holidays more special for the folks serving our country. You can see previews and read more about this on Brenda's Blog - where, in fact, you can download a free sampler. Thanks for your support.

My Falling Into Autumn mini-kit is available for only $1.50 and includes 6 papers, 1 frame, 3 colored leaf accents, 1 border, 1 golden leaf accent, 4 curly ribbons, and 1 BONUS Quick Page. It's a perfect little kit for this time of year and I want to show you this cute layout I made of my Labrador when he was just a pup. I just love these photos.

Today's freebie is a sampler from my What A Feeling kit. Vibrant, bold colors make this a really versatile collection, perfect for celebrations, kids and teens, and all of those everyday moments photos. Look what Nani made with this kit and one of my SuperSimple Templates sets:

Here's a preview of What A Feeling:

Click on the preview below to get your sampler and please, no sharing the link or hotlinking - send your friends here to download instead. Have fun, and by all means if you make a layout with any of my products and upload to a gallery, send me the link because I'd love to see it.
