The Big Bang phreebie kit

So, I started a small little Independence Day kit to go with the loads of pictures I know I'll take, and ended up with a HUGE kit to share. Not all of the elements are shown in the preview, and you can't really get a feel for the texture and design of the papers from it either. There are 17 papers, 4 alphas (all upper case) and 34 elements included. This kit was a lot of fun to make, I started it using the trial version of PS CS3, and it ran out while I was still working on it. Then I couldn't get my old PS7 to work, even when I reloaded it so I had to reformat my laptop and start from scratch, but it wasn't a huge deal since I had everything backed up. I wiped out my drives to avoid going into PS withdrawal, lol. I didn't have a working copy on my PC for several days and it was getting depressing. I played in CorelDraw, Corel Painter, and Illustrator, but none was close enough to my precious PS to make me happy. Then on Friday my husband bought me CS3 as a get well gift. I have had an extremely bad kidney infection all week, and even though I've been on antiobiotics since Wednesday it has not improved at all, and may have gotten worse. I've had tons of these infections, and 2 kidney stones before, and this is the first time I have had pain from laying on my left side or touching my left kidney area. Usually it hurts, bot not to the touch. I spent much of the weekend doped up and playing in Photoshop. Hopefully it starts to improve soon. I am already on one of the strongest antibiotics, and after being no fun for my kids all last week I made a lot of plans for this week thinking that after this many days of antibiotics I'd feel much improved. Tomorrow One of my friends is coming over with her friend from Florida and her friend's son to go swimming down at our beach with us and to go pick raspberries in the woods. They came over the weekend before last and the kids got along great as we swam, kayaked and crabbed. I need to catch more crabs this week, nothing like Cheasapeake Blue Crabs steamed with Old Bay and the necessary Maryland touch, adding beer to the water for steaming. Yummy! Now that I've rambled on forever, we get to the good stuff. The kit is in 3 downloads in one folder. You can access that HERE. Please remember to TOU and leave me a comment to entertain me if you can! Oh yeah, and I was getting bored with all of the standard 4th of July kit names I could come up with, they had all probably been done, so I went with The Big Bang for a dose of some fireworks and contraversy in one, lol...
