SCRAPANDSTAMPSATURDAY - FIRST CHALLENGE!!!

Hi All!! WHOOOHOO!! It's here, the day we have been soooo excited about!!! Our very first SSS challenge!! Make sure you head on over to the site and check out all the fun details and of course the amazing layouts done by the fabulous design team gals - they knocked MY socks off, that's for sure!! For our very first challenge, we are doing a summer sketch challenge - using the sketch, create a layout with a summer theme! Fun, right?! Your layout just needs to include two stamped images, whatever you want! For my layout, I did a page based on my oldest son Zach- these pics were taken at Shark's Beach in Jacksonville, Florida. The beach there is really fun because the kids can look for Shark teeth, play in the tidepools, and of course, see all the fun crabs all over the place!! My son was having a great time lining them up, putting them on his shirt and watching them crawl, and chasing them down the beach - LOL! I just love these photos of him so it was a really fun page to create! And yes, I stamped - check out the letters in the title, and then along the bottom of the page there is a seagull and several beach posts. (Click on the image to make it bigger, you can see the title better) These stamps are part of Gina Ks set called Guiding Light. So, want to know who our sponsor is?? It is Limelight Papercrafts!!!! Mandy has been fabulous to work with, and she generously donated this wonderful prize package chock full of goodies! This is what is included:
Basic Grey Wisteria 6x6 Paper Pad
Basic Grey Bling It Individual Rhinestone Squares-Silver/Diamond
Prima Painterly Petals - Urban Cosmos

Awesome, right??!!! And, you know you want to play so get on over to the ScrapandStampSaturday (SSS) site, check out the DT gals' wonderful layouts, and get to work on your own!! Can't wait to see what you all do!! Have a fabulous weekend, I will be back on Monday with some fun projects to share!
