Mad March Memories DHD Blog Hop

Welcome everyone ;-)

This post is a part of a great Mad March Memories Blog Hop we're having at DHD. This March we want you to have fun with us and that's why we're having lots of freebies and challenges for you.

We're starting off today with this blog hop. On the way you can not only grab lots of freebies and learn a deal from our tips and tutorials, but there are some serious prizes to win. It all starts on our DHD blog (here). You'll find all the details there and the links to the decorators and designers' blogs that participate. At each stop you will get a letter and all the letters will make a phrase. At the last stop you will have an entry field... if you put the letters in correctly, in the right order, you will be entered into the drawing for a Wacom Bamboo Capture tablet. Contest entries must be received by Wednesday at 11:59 PM MST.

Everyone participating in the blog hop will also get the coupon to receive the Spring Menagerie - our new store collab for free.

My letter is: Y

to get the next one go to Aria's blog.

And that's not all ;-) I have a little freebie for you to thank you for coming round.

You can download my wordart here. You'll get two versions - with and without the vintage roses on and each version comes in both: .png and .jpg format, so you can use it in digital projects or print it out. Hope you like it and will find it useful.

And for one lucky visitor of my blog I've got a 5$ certificate for DHD store to give away. You will have until Friday, 16th March to participate. Then I will do the drawing and publish the winner on my blog. To enter please leave a comment telling me what quote/saying/words you'd like to see as a wall art/wordart. And I'll try to create some for you to download. To double your chance of winning please become my follower - you can either become the member of my blog by clicking the "join the site" icon on the right side bar or, if you prefer to have my posts send to your email, type in your email address in the "follow by email" box and let me know you've signed up - in the comments or by emailing me at almadr[@]

Last but not least, we have a new weekly feature at DHD called Tuesday Dollar Deals - so check our store every Tuesday for some great deals!

Happy hopping and have a wonderful Sunday!

Monday, March 5

I have super exciting news to share with you - I've been published in Somerset Digital Studio. Yay! The latest issue with an article about my digital creations is out now - you can buy it here. I still can't believe it as I'd always loved Somerset magazines but would have never thought my works could be featured there. But life is full of surprises - and it has taught me one more time to never say never ;-)

And here's my layout for the new challenge at Scrapujące Polki. This time I set the rules and as we celebrate Woman's Day on the 8th March in Poland I decided it's great time to create layouts expressing in a creative way what being a woman means for us. Nowe wyzwanie na SP - tym razem mierzymy się z tematem kobiecości ;-) zapraszam!
