For the Love of Lemons: Lemongrass

Theme Kit

For the Love of Lemons
Part 1: Lemongrass
Today marks the official beginning of my new kit, "For the Love of Lemons."  It is based on a painting of a pair of lemons I did with acrylic paints several weeks ago while watching TV with my family. The kit will include many papers, embellishments, frames, and more.  Tonight's portion includes many of the yellow and green elements, therefore called "Lemongrass."  The kit is created at 300 ppi, and all papers are 12x12.  Included are:  7 papers, a tag showing my original painting, a yellow bow, yellow lace, and a lemon wedge (entirely created in Photoshop).

Credits and thank you to FafBr for her "Adorable Satin Bow" action, and to Atomic Cupcake for the lace template.  I've had SUCH fun playing with actions and templates lately!

Congratulations to Karen, the third winner is the "needle in the haystack" contest from my Yard Sale: Hay Day post!  (So far, winners are Lois, Mandy, and Karen - keep on looking!)
Below is my lemon painting, which you will see interspersed throughout this series:
Notes for the day:
For those of you who enjoy the constellation series, don't worry, there will be many more of those coming. They will primarily be released when I am working on other kits and therefore interspersed among the rest.  If anyone is waiting on a particular constellation, feel free to e-mail me, and I"ll try to do that one next. 
Thank you so much to everyone who has been sending good thoughts and prayers my way.  It helps to keep me going.  I had a tough day today - received the results of my biopsy from Monday.  Unfortunately, the result showed none of the tissue that was supposed to have been biopsied.  In other words, somehow things were messed up in the operating room such that the specimen did not make it into the jar before it was sent to the lab!  Unbelievable, isn't it?  My doctor was very kind and caring about the whole thing, and I feel grateful to be in his care.  He worked me in for an office visit only an hour or so later, and did an office-based version of the biopsy.  He is hoping we'll have results in 24-48 hours.  So, I'm starting the waiting game all over again.  I think the unknown is even worse than a cancer diagnosis - at least once I am diagnosed, I can take the necessary steps to get better.  So, any hugs (see hugs counter to left), comments or e-mails would be welcomed and greatly appreciated.  
Hugs to all of you,
