Summer Challenge

OK, so this is "technically" not a birthday post but it does have a giveaway.  You just have to participate in the challenge to be eligible for it.  "Technically" my birthday week starts tomorrow but please enjoy this post and try for the challenge.  It is a lot of fun!  To participate you need to create a project, of any kind, that has the theme of Summer.  Then submit the project over at the Paper Playtime Challenge.  I am sponsoring this challenge so that is why I am including it in my birthday week.  :)

I was asked to create a poster that was announcing our church Summer party.  I had a lot of fun making this project.  The size of the poster is 14" x 22".  I put (2) 12" x 12" light blue cardstock down for my sky.  I then cut down the same color cardstock to 8.5" x 11" and printed my message in black on it w/ my computer and glued that down so it blended into the main background.


The goodies I will be giving away are the following:

This prize includes the following:
Making Memories Whimsy Embellishment Kit:  100 Buttons, Die cut shapes, Chipboard Alphas & 40 Printed Flowers.  Total of 214 pieces plus a cute box it's in. :)
Making Memories Hul-la-ba-loo 5"x7" Mini Book Kit:  Spiral bound mini book, Cardstock, Trim

To be eligible you need to submit a project at the Paper Playtime Challenge.  Not here.

Now create something Summery and submit it over at the Paper Playtime Challenge.  Starting tomorrow I will have a guest create a project for my blog and I will be having a giveaway.  So make sure you come back!  ;)
