April Daily Download #23

Hi there!

I hope you are having a great weekend!  We are busy getting ready for Easter tomorrow.  I’ve got to get the house all cleaned up since we are having dinner here.  We had a nice little surprise of a snow dusting this morning!  Gotta love New Hampshire weather! 🙂  So now I’m hoping that the sun will maybe come out this afternoon and dry up the yard for tomorrow!

Anyhow – I’m off to get busy and here’s your next part:

Fresh Baked! 4/22

Shopping and Movies and Cleaning oh my!   That was my week with the boys home on vacation.  I can say though having them home actually allowed me time to sit and scrap.  Maybe not a lot, but I did mention to do a few layouts.  Do you all have problems trying to schedule time to get your layouts scrapped like I do?  I need to figure out a way to get it all done, besides adding more hours to the day.  If you know how to add more hours to the day please let me know.

Since we can’t add more hours to the day then you have to make sure you find time to buy our new releases.  I mean you are going to want them anyway, and why not get them for 25%.  Plus just like always, you get a free grab bag just for spending $10 in the store.  What is better then that?

This month the grab bag is by PhotoCowGirl.  

Since today is Friday, it means we have another Welcome Kit we are adding to the forum.  What does that mean for you?  It means there is another FREE KIT!  The catch?  There isn’t one.  Maybe there is a small one.  All you have to do is make sure you are registered in the forum.  That’s it!  This week’s welcome kit is by PsychoZoe Designs.  Make sure you check it out in the forum.

Want to know what else is happening?  Marshmella Designs is having a Guest CT Call!

Now for the new releases!

Challenge Spotlight – Bakery Window

Wait what happened to last week? Umm well I sorta…well…forgot. You see I’m a pretty structured person and when my schedule gets interrupted say for something like my baby girls 18 mo. checkup that is at my usual blogging time, then well I just forget what it was I was doing. Super sorry, especially to those awaiting to see if they won something! So lets not keep you waiting any longer! StarsWarsFans is the random winner! Here’s what you won:

Had to get those bunnies out for Easter you know. 😉

Okay now to this weeks spotlight challenge! Do you ever struggle with journaling. Sometimes, a picture is worth a thousand words, but other times it could certainly help to know HOW the 18 month old got marshmallows all over in his hair, especially if it was all Daddy’s fault. 😉 Well if you are an avid journalist or need some help getting the words out  Char has the challenge for you! Bakery Window Challenge for the second half of April is all about journaling!

Here’s some super LOs to see how journaling can fit right in and sometimes tell a story you didn’t even know you had to tell.

Want to give journaling a try? Come to the Bakery Window and write all about it!

Then come back here and post the link to your LO in the gallery and post it in a comment here. Next week I’ll randomly select one and that person will win a prize from ME! (Harmonystar).

CT & those who have already done a LO with this kit are elligable. Let me see those comments!

Wow!  Seems like this month is just flying by!  I got lots of scrapping done this weekend – even played with PSE all day yesterday and finished up my first layout in it!  I used a template from Kathy Winters – she’s hosting the template challenge in the forum.  All I can say is wow!!!  I loved being able to ‘clip’ things.  I never figured that out in Gimp – but it is an awesome capability!!!  Anyhow… enough about my weekend!  I hope you had a great one too!  🙂

Here’s a reminder that Scrappy Cocoa has a call going on right now in case you haven’t seen it around!  🙂

And don’t forget we are having a template chat & scrap on Thursday 4/21 at 9pm EST – hope to see you there!  Now here’s today’s piece:
