This week's wordart is all ready, but it needs you to add a bit of something to it. When I think of berries, I think of how they get so juicy and almost burst in your mouth. Then I find my mind wandering over to one of my favorite movies, Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory... and Violet who turned quite violet as she began to fill with blueberry juice until it appeared that she would burst. From there I think about all of the emotions that could make one feel that they are going to burst. There are so many! You could say:
I'm so excited I could BURST
I'm so nervous I could BURST
I'm so full I could BURST
I'm so happy I could BURST
The list goes on and on... so I made this wordart for you (below) and you get to fill in the blank. Now this is where it gets fun. The wordart is FREE and there is a coupon to get $2 off of my Berry Bright kit in this post. Now you have a chance to win a $5 coupon to my store.
Here is how:
1. Post a layout in the comments using my Berry Bright kit and this wordart for a chance to get a coupon for $5 to my store.
2. Please be sure to leave your email address OR link to your layout posted at Scrapbook Bytes so that I can get your coupon to you if you win.
3. Post your layout by Friday May 31st.
What makes you feel like you're going to BURST?

I'm starting my color play color palettes back up. Here is how it works. Each week I will post a new color palette and some inspiration for you. Please feel free to use my color palettes in your kits and projects, no credit required. If you do use one of my palettes, I would love to see how you used it so feel free to link your layout or project here. I hope you enjoy them.
Color Play: Berry Treat
This color palette has been inspired by the beginnings of berries that I've seen forming around my neighborhood. I've lived in my current home for more than eight years and I did not realize until last year that we have mulberry trees in our backyard. I would swear that they had never sprouted (is that the right term?) berries before. Then suddenly there were berries EVERYWHERE. I ended up taking a picture of the trees to post to Facebook because I had never seen a mulberry tree before, in fact I thought they were bushes based upon the song, lol. I had an answer from many friends and even fun recipes to try within moments. It's wonderful how technology works. Unfortunately, before I could pick any of the berries to try those fun recipes the birds had eaten them all. It was crazy how quickly it went frm berries everywhere to nothing left. However, this year I see the beginnings of those berries and I'm determined to get to them before they are gone. Wish me luck, I'll update later if I manage to get any.
Your inspiration? berries, birds, spring trees, and those surprising moments in life. I hope you've enjoyed this week's color play as much as I"ve enjoyed sharing it.

It's iNSD Weekend! I still remember my very first iNSD. I was so excited and I had so much fun chatting, playing games, doing challenges, and of course shopping. Every year I'm so excited to spend the weekend doing all of those things again. This year I'm juggling iNSD and my graduation party on Saturday so it's going to be a CRAZY weekend. I hope some of you have a more relaxing weekend in store. Thankfully I still have Friday and Sunday to relax, chat, and of course SHOP! In fact, I'm even hosting a special iNSD chat Friday at 2:00 P.M. EST in the Scrapbook-Bytes chat room.There will be games and prizes so I hope to have some of you join us. One lucky person will win my brand new Bead Blast BUNDLE worth almost $40!
Here is a breakdown of my iNSD plan:
First, as you can see my store at Scrapbook-Bytes and my CU only store are 45% off!
Next, you'll find the details of the chat I mentioned above. These chats are always a good time. If you come be prepared for silliness as it always seems to occur.
Third, you'll see that there are going to be FLASH SALES. These will be coupons offered for a limited time and a limited number of people. You'll find them at Scrapbook-Bytes in a special forum, on my twitter, on my FB page, on my blog, and even in my newsletter. My recommendation? Fill up your carts and be ready because they won't last long.
Now you'll see that I mention bundles and I have adjusted all bundle prices to make them 45% off or MORE. Here are some of my favorite bundles in my CU store:
and some of my favorites from SBB can be found here.
As always for iNSD I have a brand new limited time GRAB BAG available for the insanely low price of $4. Check it out! It is fulled revealed for an up close look in the additional product previews.
Now, you've made it this far and you're probably looking for coupons.... but first I'm going to show you some new products and my breaking news!
FIRST, my BREAKING NEWS: I've upgrade my Quality Check Me action sets for PS and PSE to Vol. 3. This includes upgrades to the stray and trim actions to improve quality and two new actions for checking dark/white outlines. This also includes enhancements for PSE 11 users to allow easier installation and all-in-one actions. If you purchased my previous volumes you are eligible to receive the new volume FREE. Simply email me with your order number or where you ordered from if you do not remember your order number. I've emailed upgrades out to those who ordered within the past year, but I may have missed a few.
Next, one of the bundles above is the collection of 8 brand-new bead packs! Check them out!
Now, I'm sure you are ready for those flash sale coupons, right? Well here they are! Each code is good for 2 uses TOTAL so once they've been used they are GONE. However, if you miss them no worries. There will be a chance to find more codes at Scrapbook-Bytes in a special forum, on my twitter, on my FB page, or here on my blog. Hesitant to try for one in case they are all gone? It never hurts to try, who knows someone may have missed one that still works!
Codes for my store at Scrapbook-Bytes:
ibdd_blog20 - an extra 20% off for 2 customers
PLEASE BE SURE THAT YOU ARE LOGGED IN AND THAT YOU PUT THE COUPON CODE INTO THE COUPON BOX, NOT THE GIFT CERT BOX. :)

I have two boys at home. My oldest is artistic, science-oriented and incredibly literal. My youngest is athletic, superhero obsessed, and super sweet. Most people look at my youngest and shake their heads saying, "He's all boy." He is. They both are despite how incredibly different they are. That's because boys, all boys, are different. They all like different things and they are still boys. My youngest, the one everyone calls "all boy"? His absolute favorite color in the entire world is PINK. If he has a choice in the color of a toy or other item he always chooses pink. We even got him a pink Easter basket this year and he was thrilled. When I saw the colors for this month's Grab-a-Byte I knew that this was the perfect time to do a new kit inspired by Jamie and to honor boys (and girls) everywhere with a love of pink.
I would like to introduce the Jamie LOVES Pink collection. I hope you love it as much as Jamie and I do. It's on SUPER sale for GAB this week only. PU packs are only $1 each and CU packs are $1.99. The paper packs and element pack will combine together to create a full kit. Everything else will be combined to create a Jamie LOVES Pink Bundle, but the price won't get cheaper than it is right now!
I have a wordart freebie for you, inspired by my Jamie on my FB page.
