June Monthly Challenge

Wow I can't believe it's almost 4th of July weekend.  Summer is flying by.

This months challenge is inspired by Independence Day but with a twist.... Create a project using Red, White & Blue and maybe throw in some stars for good measure but the catch is it can't be a patriotic layout.

I've always been drawn to stars for layouts about my sons & those colors are perfect for a more masculine layout... so here is my take on the challenge to inspire you.

I used the Pink Paislee Starlight line which is in stock in the ES store.

The winner will receive the complete Pink Paislee Starlight line of papers (shown above) and a bottle of the coveted Tattered Angels Marshmallow Glimmer Mist (there was even a petition to make this limited edition color an everyday color it's so popular)... it is a well used color in my creative stash.

So create a project & post a link to your creation to this thread by 11:59 PM EST on Sunday July 11th.  Winner will be drawn by random number generator from all entries.

Before I send you over to see the rest of the designers work.... there are lots of yummy colors of Glimmer Mist in the ES store (even the beautiful Heidi Swapp colors).  Shop here.

Now head over to Teresa's Blog & My Blog to see our projects & leave us a little love to put a smile on our faces today.

Have a great day & do something creative.

Mine is red, blue and VERY light cream (almost white), with some yellow. Hope that's okay!

(It is the second layout, "Splash.")

Here is my entry for your challenge. There are a couople of "patriotic" elemnts used but I do not consider it a patriotic is on the Blue Angels and when we saw them in Myrtle Beach in 2004. I really hope this layout qualifies as I would love to win that awesome glimmer mist! said...

Great work Michelle! I love the little whale. said...

Scrapbooking Recipes

With the holidays coming so fast we need more hours in our day. One way I've found to help is quick and easy meals. Here is one that I love to use when I have a full day.

Lazy Log Cabin Casserole:

1lb stew meat cubed
1 can of Cream of Celery
1 can of Cram of Mushroom
1 packet of Beef Onion Soup (I don't use this. I just add salt, pepper, garlic powder and dried minced onions but I'm an eye ball cook)
Toss all this in the crock pot together give it a stir put it on low and cook it for 6 - 8 hours. Home cooked meal with just a few moments prep. Put a salad bag with it and your hubby can't be upset that there isn't a home cooked meal on the table.

Do you have a quick recipe? email me
