Todays' challenge is to make a layout or card using flowers.  The flowers can be die cut, stamped, Flower paper, flower embellishments, even photos of flowers, anything with flowers.

I will post my sample later today.  I am off to my softball game now.  Have fun with your flowers.

Day 1 of the Summer Challenge

Here is my Sample for the first challenge.  Today's challenge is to make a card or layout with SUMMER as your theme.

This layout was made from Close to My Heart cardstock - Juniper, Surf's Up background paper, brads, and the font was printed from my computer.

A simple card to start the summer off with.

I will start working on tomorrow's challenge now.  Have a great weekend everyone.

Summer time - time to start blogging again

Ok, My last day of school was Thursday and my daughter's end of the year party was yesterday (continued into this morning for the 6 people that slept over)

Today is the first day of summer break for me.  time to start blogging again.

I plan to do my daily challenges again this summer.  It not only seemed popular last summer but I was thrilled with all the layouts and cards I had completed before the school year started up again.

I did not plan out my first day so I am going to work on my own challenge and will post my finished results later today.

Challenge # 1 - is to do a scrapbook layout or make a card about summer.  I can tell you know mine will be a card because I still have a house of teenagers and that may be all I can accomplish today.

So this is rather general.  Use whatever you have but the finished project should have a summer feel to it. 

Come back later to see what I come up with for an idea.  I will hint that I may flip through some idea books and C.A.S.E. something but that is usually where I get my best inspiration and go from there to get the creativity pumping again.
