For the Love of Lemons: Pink Lemonade

Theme Kit

For the Love of Lemons
Part 3:  Pink Lemonade
Anyone thirsty?  I have a treat for you!  Tonight's kit is the third in the series and is based on lemonade - pink and yellow.  Created at 300 ppi, it contains 7 papers and 7 embellishments, including pink grosgrain flourish and straight ribbon, two glasses of lemonade (one yellow and one pink), a whole lemon, a juicy lemon slice, and a white and yellow bow made with FafBr's "Adorable Satin Bow action.  Thank you also to Pillowgirl for her adorable CU overlays! (Some are even freebies - well worth checking out!)  The lemon painting and lemon wedge are in the first kit of this series.

(Link updated 5/17, as the pink paper with lemonade may not have zipped properly the first time.  If that paper is all you need, just click HERE.)

Good news...I think...
Today, I finally received my biopsy results - they did NOT find any cancer!  Woo-hoo!!!  The biopsy was completely normal, which is great except that it doesn't give ANY explanation for the mass seen on the ultrasound.  So, I'm a bit concerned that the mass may have been in that first biopsy that was lost or that it was too deep to get with this kind of biopsy - I won't know more until I just have it all taken out (which needed to be done for other reasons anyway).  But at least I can take my time in scheduling the surgery, and I can finally get a good night's sleep tonight!  I want you all to know that all your love and support helped me SO much through this.  Thank you, thank you, thank you!
This weekend, we have a foster parent appreciation dinner (with childcare provided - yay!) - it's going to be a treat to enjoy a nice evening with some really amazing people!  On Sunday is our girls' dance recital dress rehearsal.  It's supposed to be pretty nice here, so maybe some gardening this weekend, too?
We are toying with the idea of a weekend trip to the Children's Museum of Indianapolis - we're 4 or 5 hours away, but it's always worth the trip.  They have SO many fascinating exhibits, with much to interest adults as well as children.  (In fact, I think I could spend an entire weekend exploring it without the kids!)  Apparently, they currently have an exhibit about animation, and since my hubby is a video producer, it would be great fun for him.  If you're anywhere in the Midwest, you might want to consider a visit there - click HERE for more info!
I wish you all a wonderful weekend -
Lots of hugs,

Thank you for all the hugs and love!

Just a note to tell you all a couple of things:
First of all, thank you SO much for all the wonderful, encouraging comments you have left. Each comment brings a smile to my face, as do the virtual "hugs."  
Second, I am SO glad that so many people liked my kits enough to download them.  My intent in purchasing a premium 4Shared account was to be able to give you DIRECT links to my files so you wouldn't have to wait for downloads to begin.  Unfortunately, this premium feature is capped at 10 GB per month.  There have been enough downloads that we had about 8.5 GB yesterday alone, and over 30 GB for the month so far.  This means that the direct links won't work anymore, and it reverts to the usual wait time for the download to begin.  I am SO sorry about that - I really wanted to do this as a thank you to all of you, but at the current rate, the only way I could get enough bandwidth would cost $500 per month! (Sorry, there's just not enough money for that...LOL)  BUT, I am having my husband check on some other file sharing options, maybe through the same company that provides his business server.  I'll let you know if I can find any way to make everything hassle-free for you!  :)
I am hoping to be back with Part 3 of my latest kit later today, or maybe tomorrow.  Until then... 

hugs to you!
