On October 15Bryony requested:

I’d love a summertime Christmas kit please! With no snowflakes!!! Love the snow but we have swimming/tennis/bbq/lunch outside on Christmas day. Colours could be light green/yellow and silver glitter with touch of red.

Now, it’s time for my favorite part of every week… picking a new Custom Collections Sunday winner!  I had quite a few fabulous request to choose from:

My suggestion is for a kit about theater. Many people enjoy school plays, community theater, and/or even Broadway productions. Besides the usual comedy/tragedy masks, there are many parts of a production, i.e. scripts, costumes, wigs, stage sets, lighting, sound, music, actors, rehearsals, directors, etc. There are also many related terms that would make great word art. I think most any multi-color palette would work. I hope one of your talented designers has some interest in theater and would like to take this on. Thanks for the opportunity to suggest.

I would like to see a kit dedicated to single Moms. So many kits revolve around family and include Mom and Dad. I would like to see one centered on Mom and child relationship. With a single Mom often the grandparents become extensions of the family so something including Mom, child(ren), son, daughter and grandparents (often grandfather called Papa by children of single parents)

I would like to see a kit for Girl Scouts. (I know, I already won a collection…not trying to be greedy…and this is a repeat suggestion.)
Colors would be the colors of the vests. WA would include something like leadership, respect, friendship, honor…
Thank you for letting me express my ideas!

And the winner this week…. Carol!

I would be over the moon for something relating to the movie “Frozen”. My 6-yr old granddaughter loves Elsa and Anna along with everything else in “Frozen”, as well as all of her friends and family (kids and adults). She is also in a singing and dancing class that are now practicing for their recital based upon the movie “Frozen”. My little Catherine also wants her December birthday party a “Frozen” birthday party and wants me to make her invitation cards to send out–of course they have to be “Frozen” related. Catherine would never want to go home if a “Frozen” kit were on my computer. She loves playing with some of my digital scrapbook kits which I love seeing her interest at her young age. She would be so excited to sit next to me as we designed her invitation cards.

Jamie,  The Kit Cart, is already hard at work on your wonderful request!

Very important note: I will post a new winner every week, however, please do not expect your Custom Collection to be ready within a week.  Scrapbooking Collections take time, and that time varies by Designer.  Some of our team are full-time designers, others are part-time. Some are new mommies with littles at home, and others are Grandmothers.  Some of us are both.

I cannot wait to see the requests this week, please post away your biggest wishes in the comments below.  Comments are open to everyone.  New comments, and repeat comments are welcome.  I will post a new winner next week, along with a new release & a sneak peek!
