So Natural Quick Page Freebie

Laura got me started with working on something with her, then I messed around with a couple of color schemes of my own, and am presently working on a massive kit, well for me its going to be a massive one.. But this time around its going to be a PTU kit...
But I will of course be sharing bits and pieces with you all as always.. So while making things I started messing around last night, I love the natural elements that are all the rage at the moment, and I love clustering, so I tried my hand at a combination of some natural and some not..lol
So I am sharing with you a Qp using the first cluster frame I have made, the kit is more than likely going to contain a few, but as it is still a work in progress I cant promise ...lol
Depending on how well this goes will depend on whether I waste my time and energy making things, or just have fun ct'ing for others who have made a name for themselves..
I am amazed at the amount of downloads, but when offered for sale no takers, I have put it down to several things, one that people dont want to purchase unless your part of a store, under standable, or that the freebie train is just so massive that people are unwilling to part with money for the efforts of others..
I am very aware that there is a large part of the digi scrapping community who have very tight budgets and really dont have money to spare, but the amount of downloads on things not just mine also strongly suggests that their are also alot of others out there who can but are unwilling to..
Where am I coming from with this, very simply, have you ever stopped to think what effort goes into people making these.. You use a computer which uses electricity , electricity costs money..
Then there is the time, even with actions and ready made templates, you still have to color blend ect, make papers and all the rest, it can take hours to put a kit together..
What sometimes amuses me is when I read on someone's blog how something they have offered for free was slightly imperfect, its usually stray pixels, and someone has come back annoyed at the designer for this..
Get a grip..... you got it for free........ you didnt pay for it.... Use some of your own time and energy to correct the problem, dont go back bitching about it, you didnt pay for it........And I would bet my last dollar you didnt say a simple "thank you" for it..
Now if you go anywhere else to get something you dont get it for nothing, you have to pay for it..
Once you download it, realisticly the designers dont know how many you print off and use or even make a profit from for that matter....
By now some of you are saying why is she harping on, its simple, there are way to many things being offered and the downloads on some are massive, we are talking in the thousands but the simple"Thank you" are only sometimes a few hundred..
Lanuage is really no excuse as their are translators, it just boils down to pure greed and selfishness..
We all want to live in a better world, well wake up and smell the roses, our actions are what shapes our lives others lives and the world..
What scares me most and has upset me the most is that the amount of selfishness is far greater than the amount of care and that is the reason that our world is in the woe begotten state its in...
For those of you rolling your eyes and going whats she going on about, feel free not to come back and take another free thing from me, but lets face it we both know you will.........
For those who have found what I said to be offensive, or that I shouldnt have said that, thats another major problem with our world, to many are not saying what should be said, because they dont want to rock the boat, and those mercilesss people whose motivation is pure greed take full advantage of that...
To those people I will say you know where the door is, dont let it slam on your butt on the way out.....
So ok I have said whats been bothering me for sometime now... I will lose some readers I have no doubt, but you know what I can live with that...
So now I have gotten that off my chest here is a preview of what I made with the page ..
