great show offs today!

No new releases this week. I was in need a week off! :)

But I do have a wonderful Show Off Slideshow. Check it out:




Everyone who showed off this week is getting a free alpha of their choice from my shop. Enjoy, ladies!

(find out how simple it is to be a Show Off and get free gifts)

I hope you all have a fantastic holiday weekend! Unfortunately for us, Josh doesn't have Monday off, so it's just a regular weekend for us. But hopefully Scarlett is all better (she's been sick this week) by Saturday, so we can do something fun!

Have a good one! ta ta!!

friday new releases: random edition

Today is truly RANDOM!!! I've got lots of fun items, all of them are GREAT but man are they random when you put them all together like this. Most of these were past challenge prizes. I'm just catching up this week and putting them in the shop.

So - here we go! FIVE new random products now in the shop:

"One Fun Template #1"




"It's Magical: Quick Pages"




"Sci-Fi Alpha




"Jamboree"




"Word Cards: Old Friends"



My Britt Girls created some really awesome pages with this stuff. Check it out:



That's all I have for today!! Tonight I'm hosting book club & I've got a million things to do to get ready!!! (We read "Bel Canto". I'll make some time next week to write a book review.) Gotta run.

may flashback

Hello there!! We are moved back into our house, although we are far from being completely "moved back in" to our living room/dining room/my office. But, the floors look sooooo perrrty.

I did manage to get some work done tonight, FINALLY! The Grab Bag items are now divided up & in the shop. AND I'm very excited to finally be kicking off our May Flashback sale & challenge. (Sorry its late this month!!)



This month our featured kit is one of my FAVES: "Galactic Alliance"



Now, if I was really on the ball, I would have had this Flashback all ready to go on Star Wars Day, May the Fourth. But of course, inspiration for that idea struck a little too late. But can we just pretend I'm that awesome and clever?? haha!

And of course, you can still download the little add-on freebie if you don't already have it:


[DOWNLOAD HERE]


Check out some of these new pages my Britt Girls have scrapped with "Galactic Alliance":



Feeling inspired? Well, then its a good time to roll out this month's Flashback Challenge!



Create a layout using any of the Mermaid Lagoon featured products before April 30th, and post it in the Britt-ish Designs Challenge Gallery. Then come back to this post and paste a link to your layout in the comments. At the end of the month I'll do a random drawing for 1 winner of a $15 Gift Certificate to my shop. No matter when you purchased "Galactic Alliance" - today, last week or last year - just use it to create a layout and enter it to win!!

*IMPORTANT NOTE* When you want to link to one of your pages in the Britt-ish Designs Gallery, you need to click on this little icon to make sure that "Display File Information" is on.



Then, below your credits, you'll see the File Information. Use this URL when linking up your page.



You can't just copy and paste the URL that's at the top of your browser window! It won't work.

One more note. I know some people have had trouble in the past with the gallery. But all problems were solved by simply trying another browser. My gallery and Internet Explorer don't get along. So, if you're having trouble seeing where to Register, Log In, Upload, or Comment - just try using a different browser (like Firefox, for example) and you shouldn't have any trouble.


And of course, we can't sign off without announcing the winner of last month's Flashback Challenge . . . our lucky randomly drawn layout was:

Shanell's "Birthday Party Invite"


CONGRATS, Shanell! I'll email you your $15 Gift Certificate right away.

There were a few more entries in April than there were in March (8), but still, that's not so many that you don't have a great chance of being that lucky winner. So - what are you guys waiting for?? Scrap with "Galactic Alliance" and enter!

Ok - here's to a fantastic week!! Scrap lots.

on a stay-cation (of sorts)

Well, today's not my typical Friday post. We are actually staying at my parents' house this week while we have our wood floors refinished. (Wait 'til I get home and can post some before & after pictures!) And we were planning on only being away for a couple days, but we had them do a "third coat" thing to the floors and it increased the cure time substantially. So - what turned into a couple days away has turned into a lengthy little "stay-cation" at my mom & dad's house.

It's been really nice, I have to admit, being away from the computer, away from work, away from the norm. Scarlett has loved being here (different toys, different rooms to explore, new cupboards to pillage). And she's slowly made my parent's dog her new BFF.



It's not like we don't come here at least once a week anyway, but spending days here is a new experience for her. All we've been doing is playing, going outside, reading, and relaxing in the peace & quiet. When does that ever happen? NEVER! It's been heaven.




Plus, last night my dad stayed home with Scarlett (Josh was staying back at our house because all the windows have to stay open for it to cure faster) and me and my mom went to a chick flick! It was FUN!!

Ok, back to the point. Today I'll be doing a quick reveal of what was in my 2012 NSD Grab Bag. And of course, giving you the Show Off Slideshow. But I'll have to wait and put the NSD Grab Bag stuff into the store and to get the Show Offs their gift until Monday, when I'm home. I also had big plans to launch the May Flashback Challenge today, but that's going to have to wait 'til Monday too. I'm working from my mom's computer here and there's only so much I can do. You know?

Before I get to the reveal, I just wanted to stop and say a great big THANK YOU to everyone who made my NSD sale a success!! Sorry if this is sappy, but it means the world to me that I get to run Britt-ish Designs AND be a stay-at-home mom. And it would NOT be possible, if it weren't for you. Thank you. So very much.

Ok - here's what was in the grab bag, and what will be in the store on Monday.







Lots of fun stuff, huh? If you didn't get the chance to grab it all last week for just $3, don't worry it'll be back in the shop on Monday (at regular price).

Ok . . . let's sit back and enjoy this week's Show Off Slideshow.




Like I mentioned earlier, Show Offs will have to sit tight and wait for their gift on Monday. But I promise, it IS coming!!

Alrighty - hope you all have a very fun weekend. Thanks for being patient with me while I take an impromptu stay-cation! We should be home in the next day or two!! TTFN.

During the first hour, the 7 instructions will be given. Then you'll have an additional 4 hours to get your layouts completed. So you really have 5 hours total! Not a very speedy Speed Scrap - maybe we should call it a Midnight Crop!! Either way - we can call it FUN!
