Hello Summer challenge - extended

Hello everyone! How is your summer going?

Sue Cummings has extended her Hello Summer challenge originally scheduled to close on July 16th to July 26th! Yay! That's six more days (from now) to enter to win $100!!!


For details about the challenge, see my previous blog entry HERE, go to Sue's blog HERE or go to the challenge at Oscraps HERE (yes, Oscraps is partially back up. The store and forum are open, but the gallery is still under construction)

I seem to be constantly having computer problems. If my PC isn't breaking down, it's my laptop. When either one works, my software is having problems ... and in the midst of all of this, life goes on and keeps me constantly busy. Oh, so busy!

Anyway ... I've finally completed my first layout for the challenge. I've been working on it for two weeks:
It's a layout of our first (and hopefully not last) trip to the beach this year. The kids all had a BLAST! It was wonderful ... and totally worth the $20 parking charge :)

I used both of Sue Cummings' new releases: Little Bits and Pieces No. 5 and From My Notebook {Summertime} for the frames, mask, paint stroke and wordart. The bubbles and starfish are from Danielle Young's kit, High Tide, the round alpha is Danielle Young's Sea Glass Alpha and the acrylic diamond mat is from Paislee Press' kit, Photogenic - all purchased at Oscraps.com.

I hope you like it! Now go out and create one of your own!!!

"HELLO" Summer Challenge: Win $100!

The amazing Sue Cummings is hosting a challenge! Go to the challenge thread HERE for details.

There are two challenges, actually.

Part One: You remember the FREE quick page (see previous posts for details)? All you have to do is create a layout with it and post the layout to any gallery and then post the link in THIS thread. You will be entered to win $100! Post in another gallery, post the link and you're entered again! Wow!

Part Two: Create a layout using her new Bits & Pieces kit (see previous post)! Same thing. Post in gallery, post link, you're entered! Wow!

You can enter both and as many times as you'd like. It's an amazing opportunity! Woohoo! I'm off to create ...

Summertime Sale!

Sue Cummings has just released TWO new kits!

And they're on sale right now (until June 14th) for 50% off!

These kits are perfect for the summer season! So simple, so fun ... I just can't wait to use them!


June Copycat Challenge

You remember that I was featured for the Oscraps Copycat challenge in June? Well, I meant to post this before the end of June, but forgot ... I guess we've all been a little busy :)

For the original post and details, go to THIS post.

I love summer! I really do. I love spending time outdoors and playing in the sun and in the water and enjoying God's magnificent creation ... but it means less time sitting at your computer and it also means an earlier bed time!

Here is my copy of myself :) I was so happy to be featured, so of course I had to participate!

I switched it around a little and I'm really happy with the results! I used the 52 Inspirations kit Week 23 from Vicki Stegall, stitches and wordart from Sue Cummings and the white epoxy alpha from MMD.

I hope you like it!!!

Sue Cummings New Release

Sue Cummings has a wonderful new kit coming to Oscraps!!!

Here is a quickpage using the kit:
It's free with the purchase of the kit and also free to newsletter subscribers. Isn't it cute? I just love the flowers :)
Here's what I did with it:

I love summer activities ... except for the really hot and humid weather. But, without that weather, there wouldn't be the need to cool off!
So, head on over to Oscraps and check it out. Also, be sure to stop by Sue's blog and sign up for her newsletter!
I hope you like it!
