June Project 12

Hey everyone, it is another beautiful day on Vancouver Island. Today I have my latest DT post up over at Urban Swank. I used my awesome Urban Lily papers to complete my June Project 12. I would love if you came over HERE and checked it out and leave me a little love : )

Also, Practical Scrappers has an AMAZING giveaway going on today. They are doing a feature on Front Porch Kits. My awesome friend Lolly is one of their designers and she is the queen of craft. She is so stinking creative and has a major love for teal (I don't blame her). So please go check out the giveaway and of course spread the word!!!
Latest challenge is up at the Design Dollies. It is a great summer Trifecta.
On a last note, the latest challenge is up at These Are A Few Of My Favourite Things. Sadly though, this will be the last challenge. I am soooooo terribly sad about this news. It was truly one of my favourite challenge blogs and I was thrilled to be asked to be a part of their awesome DT. Julie is so amazing and made that blog what it was. Julie, I completely understand your hard decision and I support you. We all love you to bits and pieces and THANK YOU for making These Are A Few Of My Favourite Things a great place to be.

A lovely summer Trifecta

Wow! I can't believe it is the end of June already. We just got back from a fabulous adventure to Wallace Island British Columbia and it definitely got me into the summer spirit!!!
Today at the Design Dollies we have a fabulous Trifecta. At the beginning of June we had the amazing colour combo that screams summer:
The next week, we had a great elements summer that focused on summer themes.

And lastly our summer sketch:
So with all of those challenges in mind I came up with this layout:

I used my Studio Calico kit with the awesome new filmstrip stamp. I have to say, I am so in love with this stamp. I have a feeling you'll be seeing more layouts with it : )
Wanna play along with us? You can hop on over here for the specifics and you have until Sunday July 3rd midnight EST.
You also still have some time to join in on the latest challenge at These Are a Few Of My Favourite Things. You need to get your submission in because the prize is soooooo awesome!!!
Also, Practical Scrappers have a lot of fun things going on this week too. Check it out!!!
I will leave you with some photos of our great adventure from the weekend.

Project 12

Well, I finally seem to be getting back on track. I'm feeling good, I'm working out again, and I am scrapbooking again. Today I have the latest Project 12 I have completed. This is my second year doing it and I love that I have a layout a month that sums up all of the adventures we have had. Here is what I created for May using the Project 12 sketch:
I used bits and pieces from a couple of my Studio Calico kits. I even utilized the Crate Paper chipboard piece and made it into a secret journal box.

The story isn't so secret ; )
If you haven't played along with the Project 12 it isn't too late. I highly recommend it.

Elements day

Hey everyone, thank you all for the amazing well wishes for me to get better. I am still laying low these days but I am definitely feeling better than I was last week. I've been told it will be a long haul. Ironically our latest elements challenge over at the Design Dollies is all about summer. I had created this layout about my triathlons that I'm doing this summer but if I don't get better fast I won't be doing any more : (
Anyways, here's what I created:

I used my March Studio Calico kit with a few other things. I am supposed to be doing 3 triathlons this summer and the training is hard so that is why I'm not sure if I'll be able to do the one in July. So keep sending me get well vibes!!!
I also, would love if you could hop on over to Practical Scrappers to see the latest and greatest projects and fun going on there.
Stay tuned, tomorrow we have a new Fav thing challenge and I have another Urban Lily project to share on Thursday.

Lots going on

Hi everyone, I have to start by apologizing for not being around much lately. I have been very sick. I have viral pneumonia and have been flat on my back since Tuesday. I've been told it can take months to recover and the only thing that cures it is lots of rest. So the even more bad news is that I might not get to do my Triathlon in July. After all that training I am sad. So please send me lots of get better vibes.
Since I have been MIA I have to catch up on telling you all the great things going on for you! We have been doing a fabulous week long blog hop at Practical Scrappers and there is a great giveaway that you need to get entered into. Go HERE to check it out.
The Design Dollies have a surprise contest for our fabulous Leah. It was her birthday yesterday so lets wish her a fabulous birthday and you can participate here!
I also wanted to post some layouts I did for one of the LSS's I design for. I haven't had the chance to get photos on them since I've been so sick. Anyways, have a look:

Hope everyone has a fabulous weekend and come back Monday for a new Design Dollies challenge!
