The Rules...

We love to see all of your beautiful creations but to be in for the prize drawing it must be a scrapbook layout or mini album. After all that is what we are about here. We all love to stamp on our cards but sometimes we forget to use them on our layouts and other projects. They are cheap embellishments and plentiful after all. You are welcome to combine our challenge with others. Happy Crafting!

Happy Fourth of July everyone!!! It's time for another fun challenge from the SSS gals and boy do we have some special things in store for you today!!! See, today is our very own Melissa's birthday and so M decided she wanted to sponsor this week's challenge herself!! How about that?! Her birthday and YOU get the presents!!! The challenge this week is to create a fun, patriotic layout that includes at least one stamped item - it can be either letters or images but your layouts MUST have at least one thing stamped on it to be considered! And, to sweeten the pot, one of our lucky participants from our July challenges will be chosen to be our Guest Design Team Member for the month of August - WHOOHOO!!! Want to see what the lucky winner will receive for this challenge? Check this out!! Here is what is in this yummy bundle of goodies:
2 Black 12x12 Sheets from Die Cuts with a View
3 Subtle Love Sheets from My Mind's Eye
1 Chef Accessory Pack from Jolee's Boutique
2 Clear Stamp Sets from Studio G
1 BBQ Themed Sticker Set from Karen Foster

Pretty awesome, right? So, all YOU have to do to have a shot at this wonderful goodie package is to link your layout using Mr. Linky below by MIDNIGHT EST on the 17th of July and ensure you follow all the requirements so you can be included!! And, to get your mojo flowing, here are the fabulous examples from the DT members this week!

(1) ALEX (2) BONI (3) CHERYL (4) CHRIS

Aren't they gorgeous?! I had to list their names at the top because blogger was being weird and I wanted you to know who was responsible for the beautiful pages you see!! Here is Mr. Linky - can't wait to see what you come up with!!!
