Challenge Spotlight July 8th

Happy Tuesday! Hope everyone had a great long weekend! It was hard to get back into the groove of things after the holiday weekend. I hope everyone in the US enjoyed the fireworks, I was able to see the fireworks over the National Mall. That’s one more thing to check off my bucket list!

This week’s featured challenge is the Designer Spotlight Challenge! All you have to do is create a LO using the products of one (or both) of the featured designers! This month the designers being featured are Connie Prince and Trixie Scraps! Together, they are North Meets South Studios! This is an easy challenge to do if you are a fan of them like I am! A sizable chunk of my scrap stash is from their stores.

Create a LO for this challenge and 9 others and you will receive this fabulous collab for this month:

Just make sure to keep track of your Challenge LO’s in the tracking thread (image is linked).

Here are a few LOs submitted for the challenge:

Challenge Spotlight July 1st

It’s the first of the month which means a whole new month of challenges! And a brand new challenge reward! Completing 10 challenges gets you this awesome kit! But I have a challenge for you! I challenge you to work on a challenge you don’t normally do or you have never done before. I plan to take on the Scraplift Challenge. It’s not normally on the 10 I do per month. But since it is the first of the month, the Buffet Challenge is always full of great layouts!

I love the buffet colors this month! Even though to most American’s the buffet screams patriotism, the great designers had great ideas for the color that went beyond Independence day. This is a great challenge to complete! Especially if you bought multiple kits like I did!

I hope you have a great week and a great holiday weekend!

Happy Thursday! I am sitting here in sunny Fl enjoying the heat! So far in the first 5 days of June I have taken over 1800 pictures!

So I need lots of great kits in the coming weeks to scrap all the memories I have of my vacation so far. And this week we have several great kits releasing!
