{what. a. week.}

Ok - this has been the craziest week I've had in a LONG LONG time. But the best thing that happened this week was, my SIL had her baby on Tuesday!! She was scheduled to be induced on Thursday, so it came as quite a surprise to get a phone call on Tuesday saying she was at the hospital. My new little niece is BEAUTIFUL! Her name is Ava. She's tiny and has tons of jet black hair!!!

And in just a few hours, Josh and I are leaving for Arizona to visit my cousin who is about to have her second little girl!! I can't wait. Lots of babies coming into the world these days! You'd think it was spring or something.

BUT . . . before we head out on our trip - I've got a couple new items in the store to tell you about.

First up . . .

"Inspired by Christy Templates"

One of my newest Britt Girls, Christy (aka TheWerners, or DisneyCruiser) agreed to let me take her BEAUTIFUL creations and make them into templates. Here are the original LOs I was inspired by:

Aren't they great? Let me show you what my Britt Girls and I did with them . . .

By my fab Britt Girls:

It amazes me how just a simple change to a templates makes it look like a completely different page! Thanks so much, girls, for your amazing work!!!

And also new in the store today . . .

"Hottie Tottie Alpha"

What was previously the participation prize at my daytime Speed Scrap this last week, is now in the store available to one and all! :) This alpha recolors like a dream (see Wendy's LO above!).

And that's it for new products!! Now . . . let's enjoy the Show Offs!

All of this week's Show Offs will receive my new "Inspired by Christy Templates" as my gift this week!! I hope you enjoy them. Watch those email inboxes.  And there WILL be Show Offs next week, so send 'em in!!

If you want free gifts too, all you have to do is Show Off. Just email me (designerbrittney at gmail dot com) any LO you create during the week that uses any Britt-ish Designs product. Make "Show Off" your email subject line and make sure your LO is saved around 600x600 in size. Or you could always just email me a link to your LO in an online gallery. Then next Friday I'll put you in the slideshow and send you a gift!! Nothin' to it!

Many of you already know this, but ScrapMatters is currently moving servers and its taking WAY longer than we were originally told it would.  The store and forums are reopened this morning, they just close down overnight.  And HOPEFULLY the gallery will reopen this weekend.  Sorry for the inconvenience its been all week!!  Believe me, I'm just as anxious for it to be finished and working properly.  So hang in there with us, we're doing our best!!!!

Ok - well - I better run. Still have a few last minute things to do before we leave, like PACK! I hope you have a great week and I'll see you all next weekend during [inter]National Scrapbooking Day!!! It's going to be so fun. ScrapMatters has a TON of great stuff going on. :)

See you then!
