I'm going to start with her new template challenge over at Scrapbook Bytes, all you have to do is download the free template she has provided and scrap a layout with it then just upload it to Template Challenge Gallery. You could always try flipping the template horizontally or rotating it to make it even more versatile. How simple is that, you can pick up the template free for the duration of the challenge (runs until 30st April) you can find all the details here.
This weekend is Potato Bar weekend at Polka Dot Potato, designers release new items each costing 99c. Most of them are designed especially for this event although some may be for sale at a later date, but if they are you can bet they will be costing a lot more than 99c!
Amy is spoling us for choice with 2 new alphas, 4 new layered templates and 3 gorgeous mini kits. She is also providing a free gift of a beautiful paper pack when you spend $10 in store. You can check out all her Potato Bar items and her other stuff in her section of the store here.
She also released two new items at Digital Freebies on Tuesday, they are still available at 30% off until Tuesday. Dress 'Em Up Decorative Frames and Floral Overlays - Commercial Use.
Last but certainly not least as you may have seen in previous posts Amy is running a super special deal on her templates at Scrapbook-Bytes, right now you can pick up all of them for the bargain price of $35! You can see all the details of that steal of a deal right here.
Thanks for stopping by! If you want to keep up with Amy's designs and store, join her mailing list. I happen to know that she will be sending out a beautiful freebie to her mailing list members this weekend! All you have to do is enter your email address below.

I have been thinking a lot about those "every day" moments lately. My goal this week was to spend more time journaling and doing scrapbook layouts about the "every day" moments in life. Of course, no sooner than I made that goal, we had a BIG out of the ordinary set of moments on Monday. My son ended up in the ER with severe breathing problems, and I'm still recuperating from it! (Notice I said *I* am recuperting... he is doing great too). Actually, he might be considered "reCROUPerating", since he was diagnosed with croup.
(Ok, I'll wait for the groans to stop).
Anyway, even with all the craziness in our home this week, I am still thinking about journaling and scrapping the moments I don't want to forget. Today I am going to work on a layout about our trip to the ER, with as much journaling and detail as I can get on a page, along with a couple of cute pictures.
My challenge to YOU is this - scrap a layout about a moment you've had this week that needs to be remembered. It can be a BIG moment, or an "every day" moment - just try to make it a journaling/story kind of moment.
Post a link to your layout here in the comments at Amy's blog (say, by Friday evening around 5 p.m. pacific time), and I'll pick a random winner to receive one of Amy's new products. (Winner will get to pick their prize from Amy's shops!)
Thanks for playing, and Happy Wednesday!
