I'mmmmm Backkkkkkk!!!

YES!!! It is true!! The holidays are over, spring has sprung, the moving truck has left and for the most part the boxes are unpacked - thus BELOVED KEEPSAKES is BACK!!!

Man - it has been sooo long since I have created, and blogged - and I have to say I MISSED you guys!!!  So to celebrate my return I am having a weekend of fun!!!!

Starting today ALL Beloved Keepsakes Designs are 50% OFF!!!! (Now you know I don't do 50% off but normally once a year - so here it is!!!!)  This sale will be from today Friday, March 18th until Midnight Sunday, March 20th!  (As a side note, you will see the sale price once you put the items in your cart!!!)

Now if that is a way to kick off a celebration - how about FREE STUFF?!?!  Yep - I plan to have a drawing every single day PLUS you will get a freebie download everyday as well!!!  And on Monday - I will have a drawing for a GRAND PRIZE!!!!  So let's kick it off!

Today's drawing will be for a "Wall Pop" prize pack -

This prize pack contains four packs of "Wall Pop's".  If you have never used "Wall Pop's" before - they are a cut-able vinyl that is safe for your walls!  Each pack has five sheets of 12 x 12 vinyl in them.  To be eligible for today's prize pack all you have to do is leave a message here on this blog post welcoming me back!!!

Then on Monday I will take all the comments from the entire weekend and put them in a hat and draw a Grand Prize winner!  (Thus if you join in the drawings every day this weekend, that means you have a chance to win three great prizes and on Monday you will have three entries for the GRAND PRIZE!!!)  Now I bet you are wondering what the GRAND PRIZE is going to be?!?!?!  Well here it is!!!

A Glue Arts Mega Prize Pack!!!!  (See you know you want to win this one!!)

Now for our third celebration event - it is a true FREEBIE FRIDAY (oh I miss these, don't you?!?!)... for today's freebie I have created a cute title that just seems very appropriate to my life as well!

Sorry design is no longer available for free!  You can purchase next week at VDBC

Now if you like this FREEBIE - then check out this accompanying design that I just uploaded TODAY to the store!!!

You can get this "Packing Up" design at the VDBC STORE - for 50% OFF with all my other designs!!! (Only for this weekend)!!!

Oh and before I forget - make sure you check out my "Spring Cleaning" article in today edition of the VDBC Newsletter and you can get ANOTHER FREEBIE today as well!!!! (The newsletter should go out later this afternoon - if you haven't signed up yet, go HERE.  Additionally I will post the link to it tomorrow here on my blog!!)

Hmmmm - I think that is it for today!!! I have to say it is sooo good to be back! I hope you think so as well!!! Make sure you stay tuned for the rest of the weekend to help me celebrate!!!

Until Next Time!
