Challenge Spotlight – Kathryn’s Pop Quiz

Happy (hot) Tuesday. I hope everyone has had a great June so far. Today’s challenge spotlight is on Kathryn Estry’s Pop Quiz? Have you been participating in this one or a little scared to see what it’s about? Each month Kathryn will give you a set of questions to answer. Based on your answers, she will give you instructions on what to do with your layout. For example, June’s questions:

Instructions: Answer each question with one and only one answer. Copy and paste these questions in this thread, adding your answer under each question. Shortly after you’ve posted (or as soon as I’m back at my computer), you’ll receive a Private Message from me. You’ll then be able to make your layout based on the information I send to you. Remember, each question must have exactly one answer, give your most honest responses, and don’t skip any questions.

June: Pool Party!
Answer the questions as if you were really hosting a pool party.

1. Will you wear a 1-piece suit or a 2-piece suit?
2. You’re decorating with flowers. What one color are you using the most?
3. Will your guests be primarily family or mostly friends?
4. Choose one: hamburgers or steaks?
5. Will there be more or less than 6 children at the party?
6. Choose one: water volleyball or squirt guns?
7. Choose one: go off of the high dive or float in the shallow water?

Sounds fun, right? Here are some of the submissions for far.

Don’t forget, when you complete 10 challenges, you get the following kit as a reward:

Head on over and join in Kathyrn’s Pop Quiz Pool Party!!

Celebrate | Father’s Day

I cannot even tell you how excited I get for Father’s Day around scrappy town. Tomorrow, is Father’s Day here in the states. A time to celebrate those wonderful men in our lives. I am surrounded by males in my life. Hardly a female in sight. So, I always look forward to the masculine kits that come out this time of the year. GS has a section dedicated to those kind of kits. You can click the image above to look around and grab what you like. I did a bit of looking around for you! Taking the hard part out of your father day kit shopping. Here are a few of what I found!

Great kits, right?! Happy Father’s day to all the Dads out there! Take a moment to thank those men in your lives. Remember the Dads who cannot be with their families today. Happy Father’s Day!!

Creative Style | Disney Inspired

Hello scrappers! Today we are going to talk about a creative style. Well, not so much a creative style as a creative theme. Disney was such a huge part of my childhood. I was really limited on what I could watch. Disney fell into one of the things I could. To this day I can start quoting and singing (usually at the top of my lungs) Aladdin, The little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, and the Lion King. Those were the movies from my childhood. I am in my 30s and still love them and love most all the newer movies too.

That being said, I got into digital scrapbooking for other reasons. I have found out in the past 6-7 years though that a lot of you guys got into it (and still are into) scrapping because of Disney. There are a lot of copyrite issues when it comes to Disney. So, I am here to show you just a little (and it is actually quite a lot!) of the Disney inspired products that is in the GingerScraps store. There are so many more items that I am not going to show you. You can find these, and the rest, by searching for them. Get ready to be blown away! (all images linked to the store).

I am telling you, there are so many more Disney inspired goods in the store. I had to trim down my list! This has me so excited. I say often that I need more princesses in my life. I am surrounded by little boys. I am going to have to find something to scrap with these lovely items!!
