It's an other huge one!!

I hope you all had a great weekend. I enjoyed mine, it was busy but good! Saturday was spent with the wonderful Lilly. She is such a little bundle of joy that I look forward to my Saturdays and nothing...but nothing stops the visits. They are really precious to me, time that I can watch her grow and witness the changes as she turns from a helpless little scrap into an animated tiny person. It's pure joy!! OK..I know, enough of that!! But it's so true! I also managed to get some new stuff up into the on for details and a great bargain!!
But first this weeks challenge! It's a colour one and I hope you agree the colours I picked are ideal for Spring. Have a look at the palette.

The challenge is to use 3 or more of the colours in a layout. I'm flexible on this meaning start with these colours and if you end up with a shade lighter or darker..fine but you must use the palette as the basis. You can make your own kit or use any kit of your choice, it doesn't have to be mine.If you send a link to your layout or a copy of it to me at by next Monday 28 April you'll receive a download link for the posting bonus.

Please include full credits for any items used so that I can list them (check the designers TOU to see if recolouring is OK, it normally is).

If you could let me know in your email if it's OK for me to post your layout to my blog I would be grateful. I would hate to upset anyone. So come on give it a go and play along! Have a look at the Posting Bonus..these should go with your new colourscheme too!

Get in on the Great paper Swap!! Check out my chat tomorrow at SDK it's going to be fun!! Last week we talked about background papers and this week there is a freebie download with items to make some papers. Download it before the chat and then come along and get some tips and a links to download some tuts on how to use them to make some great papers.
The idea is that you all make 2-3 papers by next week and then send me a download link. I'll package them up and...we have a great Paper Share!! All welcome no matter what level of scrapper you are. If your an experienced scrapper come along and share your knowledge or if your a newbie drop by and learn loads of great stuff!
Chat Times are Tusday 22 April 3.30pm EST (8.30pm GMT)12.30pm PST
So check out the thread in the forum at SDK for full details and get the download link to get in on the Great Paper Share!!

Now to the new stuff in my shop. I have a new kit, Monet's Garden inspired by impressionist paintings and a French garden. It's soft and gentle and lends itself to lots of different layouts. Full of flowers and lace. Like all new items it's 40% off for the first week in the shop so if you like it get it now!!

An other new addition are my doodles. I have some already "dressed up" for you to pop into your layout and some that are just waiting to be "prettied up"!
The doodle sets are the start of a series and parts 1 and 2 are now in the shop. The basic doodles are for personal or commercial use.

Good news! I have redone my TOU to bring it up to date to include OK for S4H. If you want to check the new TOU in full, click on the Designers TOU blinkie in the top left of the page to go to it. I have uploaded a copy of my personal/S4H and Commercial Use to Designers Terms of Use, a great site where designers lodge a copy of their TOU for you to check easily.

I will just manage to fit one layout in today and thats a fantastic horsey one from Jessica. I lvoe the angle these photographs were taken at!! It's a brilliant layout using a variety of kits and will make a great addition to your album Jessica! Wonderful!!

Take care and stay safe!
