Oh Gosh it's Huge...So Much to Say!

Mondays Challenge Overlay
So many nice things for you today!! I don't know where to start!! Just be sure to pull up a chair and grab the coffee! There are two freebies tonight, a challenge, plus news of a chat freebie and some great new products at bargain prices...could you ask for more?First hope everyone had a great Easter, I had a wonderful,time with Lilly and the rest of the family. Lilly was a joy to have stay and my children all came on Sunday for lunch which was fantastic as they all visit but not normally all at the same time. It's amazing how brothers and sister had so much to say to each other...I think it's different face to face rather than on the phone or email. Today is a clearing up, blogging and a bit of design..but the house is quite again, that's good and bad!!

This Weeks Challenge
I decided for this weeks challenge we would have an overlay to play with. This one is nice and easy to use, just pop it over you paper or colour and then change the blending mode to overlay etc. You can play with the opacity, blending and fill too and see what you come up with. Hope you decide to take part in the challenge but if not still help yourself to the overlay to have a play!!
You can download the overlay here

To take part in the challenge you have to:
1. Use the overlay in your layout somewhere.
2. Send me a link or a copy of the layout to by Monday 30 March.
3. Please list the credits for all items used in your layout.
So, getting playing with that overlay!!

This weeks posting bonus is a Dotty paper Pack, with 9 papers, 3 plain and 6 dotted papers.

More news.....I have a new kit and some gorgeous BB and QP pages in the shop and they are 40% off as usual for their first week in the store at SDK.
