Fresh Baked! 7-7-10

Hello scrappers! I hope you all had a wonderful holiday weekend! I sure did :) My sister had a big BBQ and then we all went down to the lake to watch the fireworks. I think I will have to squeeze in some scrapping time!! I have some wonderful photos – and last week TWO perfect kits came out that I have been dieing to play with  GingerScraps Backyard BBQ and Independence by Kathy Winters Designs.

Here is a photo of me and my kiddos :) Getting ready for the fireworks show to begin.

Aren’t our headbands cute! My sister Julie made them…. she should totally do a craft day on the blog with instructions!! She made the flowers out of duct tape- they are so cool!!

OK so here are the two kits I wanna play with- I just had to do a little plug for them :) Then I will get on to the new goodies for the week.

All Fall Down Template Challenge

I am going to be hosting a monthly blog challenge here at the GingerScraps Blog to help you earn extra brownie points. This new challenge is call “All Fall Down.” You will get a template, but the pieces all fell down to the bottom of the LO. On know! ;) I will have a couple of ‘rules’ for things the LO needs to contain other than the pieces that are included in the template. Other than that you have will have free reign on the LO. This is worth one (1) brownie point, and you will have until the end of the month to complete the challenge.

Click here to download the template. I scraplifted the “idea” for this template from Trina513 in the GingerScraps gallery. Thanks Trina! :)

Please post your completed LOs in the challenge gallery under the Challenge Layouts Thread; then put a link to your gallery under the comments section for this blog post. Thanks for playing. :)
