A Week?

It's really been a week since I've posted?  Wow!  Just proof that summer is flying by!
I'm in the midst of getting my Design/ Creative Team projects completed before heading out to Alabama on Friday...look out beach, here comes a really white girl :)  Our friends poke fun and literally call me 'white girl', but I don't care.  Being fair-skinned has it's advantages and disadvantages...just seems like there are a lot more disadvantages LOL.  A couple of years ago I went to a Beauti-Control party and the consultant did the 'black light' test.  I was amazed to see the number of ladies with large areas of green splotches (i.e. sun damage) all over their faces.  When she did mine?  A couple of small spots where zits were....so ha!  Hopefully when I'm 80 I'll look 50...in the meantime, I can deal with the jokes and grief.

In the past two days I've received my July Design Team kits from Back Porch Memories and Your Scrapbook Stash.  Oh. My. Goody-ness.  
I spent the entire day yesterday creating away.  Here is just a little-bitty sneak peek of what I did with the BPM July SOLO Kit
 The Design Team's projects go live on July 10th, so I will share more after that time :)  Sign-up for this kit today...it is total Y-U-M.

I completed another card for I Heart {Ippity} too!
Again, I am working with New Season, New Wonder for the entire month of July.  These are pre-cut, unmounted rubber re-positionable stamps.  You can order these directly from Heather, our Unity Stamp Chick (click link above).  
How fun is this?!?  To embellish the stamped image, I added letter stickers and gave them a little detail by adding some stitching at the top.  I also used a satin stitch of brown floss for the stem and finally added a cut-out leaf.  I simply L-O-V-E the way it turned out ♥

I have a couple of more projects to share, but I'm waiting to see if Paper Crafts is interested in them first.
Never submitted anything ever to a magazine, but I thought I'd try it. Nothing like crafting Valentine's in June.
Not a bad idea actually...which reminds me that it's about time to start on those Christmas crafts!

See you all in a day or two
